Pugs are a small breed of dog that originated in China and were later popularized in Europe during the 16th century. They are known for their distinctive wrinkly faces, curly tails, and compact, muscular bodies. Pugs are typically between 10 and 14 inches tall at the shoulder and weigh between 14 and 18 pounds. They are friendly, playful, and affectionate dogs that make great companions, especially for those living in smaller homes or apartments. Pugs are also known for their snoring, snorting, and occasional flatulence, which adds to their unique and lovable character.
