The little muscleman came to England with the Orangemen, and up to the 20th century it was at home in all European princely courts.

Because of his short nose, you have to take care of him in the heat. Hair care is hardly necessary, only the corners of the eyes and the folds of the nose have to be wiped out every day. If you want to share your bedroom with a pug, you have to get used to his snoring.
