If you are to ask, where did the Pugs originated? Judging by its look, can you name where? Thanks to the documentation made by a Chinese Philosopher named Confucius in 551, it has been known that pugs were actually considered as royalties in China. They are considered as priced possession by the emperor. And a sign of honor if you are able to receive one as a present.
It was not long before other countries took notice of this short mouthed dog.During the 16th Century, it has reached East India then European Countries through gifts by the Chinese Royalties to their allies and business partners.
What Confucius describe in one of his written artifacts is the description of a short mouth dog. This actually best described a pug. With a compact body and a glossy smooth coat. What makes them appear soft and gently is their lack of skeletal brow ridge, making their eyes look drooling. Also, another noticeable feature is their round head with lots of wrinkle covering their eyes and make them look extra lovable. Their ears are high set which can either be described as rose or button.
