Pug Tattoos-The Pug is a small breed of dog with a wrinkly, short muzzled face, and curled tail. The word “pug” may have come from the Old English pugg or “puge”, which were affectionate terms for a playful little devil or monkey. Pug puppies are often called puglets. The breed is often summarized as multum in parvo (“much in little”), describing the Pug’s remarkable personality despite its small size.
While most Pugs appearing in eighteenth century prints tended to be long and lean, modern breed preferences are for a square, cobby body, a compact form, a deep chest, and well-developed muscle. Breeding preference goes to “button” Pugs. The legs are very strong, straight, of moderate length, and are set well under. The shoulders are moderately laid back. The pasterns are strong, neither steep nor down.
