Pugs are decidedly square and cobby in build, packing a lot of dog into the smallest amount of space, characterized by a compact form, firm muscles and well knit proportions.Just like Pekingeses, Pugs were first introduced into the West by the British, who found them upon storming the Imperial Palace in Beijing in 1860.
