The pug is a toy dog with a wrinkly, short-muzzled face and curled tail. The breed has a fine, glossy coat that comes in a variety of colors and a compact square body with well-developed muscle. They have been described as multum in parvo (“much in little”), referring to the pug’s personality and small size. Known in ancient China as lo-sze, pugs may have been responsible for the English Bulldog, the modern Pekingese and the King Charles spaniel. They have Chinese origins, but were popularized in Western Europe by the House of Orange of the Netherlands, and the House of Stuart of England, Ireland and Scotland.
Pugs can suffer from a variety of health issues, including overheating, obesity and pharyngeal reflex. Two fatal conditions, necrotizing meningoencephalitis and hemivertebrae, are particular concerns for the breed. Care must be taken to clean the ears and the facial skin folds of these dogs (info from Wikipedia).
