Pugs were the official dog of the House of Orange and favorite pets of royalty like Queen Victoria.
The Pug originated in China before being imported to Europe in the 16th century.
Their name comes from the Latin "pugnus" meaning fist, referring to their clenched, wrinkled faces.
Due to their flat faces, Pugs are prone to breathing problems and do best in cool environments.
Pugs shed constantly year-round and need weekly brushing to control loose hair.
Pugs have playful, clown-like personalities and are born entertainers.
Though small, Pugs have compact, muscular bodies and can weigh up to 20 pounds.
