Pug

Pugs are often liked most for their curly tails, compact body, a deep chest, and strong muscles. There are two different types of a Pug’s ears, “rose” and “button”. “Rose” ears are smaller than the “button” ears and are folded up instead of on the side of the head. Most people prefer “button” style Pugs. Pugs have strong, straight legs and laid back shoulders. Their feet are not as large as a hare’s foot, but they are not as round as that of a cat, either. They have toes that are split up perfectly, and their nails are all black. The lower teeth normally grow farther out than the upper teeth, so they meet in an under-bite.

The coat of pugs can be a lot of different colors, including fawn, apricot, silver, or black. A very rare pug is white. The fur color may be white due to albinism. There is also a smutty fawn pug, which has a very dark head and dark forelegs. The tail usually curls at the hip.

Different coat types shed differently, but they all shed year-round. The pug who has a fawn color sheds the most. Grooming their fur helps prevent too much shedding.
