Originating in the Ming Empire, the mischievous, yet even-tempered pugs were popular companions of Chinese emperors. Eventually, the pug made its way to Western civilization, and today are adored by millions across the globe.
The pug has a smaller muscular build and a distinct wrinkly, short-muzzled face, and curled tail. The breed’s three color variations include silver or fawn with a black mask, and all black. One piece of advice if interested in adopting a pug: pay close attention to its diet, as the breed has a propensity to put on weight fast.
