Pugs are one of the most famous dog breeds in the world, known for their cute faces and friendly and bright mannerism.
The origin of the breed is believed to be more than 2000 years ago in the Chinese Empire. As the story goes, they bred the breed as an imperial dog out of a few dogs similar to mastiffs.
Following that, it was exclusively only the emperor’s privilege to own and touch this special breed of dog.
Presumably the dogs that were not suitable for breeding were sold to the people at a high price. And with time, that’s how the pug became a popular choice of breed for all types of people across the world.
Over time, pugs have been selectively bred to achieve the flat-faced look they have now.
Unfortunately modern pugs often suffer from breathing difficulties due to their flat snouts and tendency to gain too much weight easily.
There’s currently a breeding movement to go back to the old appearance of the breed. The breeders of the so-called ‘retro pug’ specialise in breeding the original, long-snouted pug.
