3 Pug Pug The Pug is a breed of dog with a wrinkly, short-muzzled face and curled tail. The breed has a fine, glossy coat that comes in a variety of colours, most often fawn or black, and a compact square body with well-developed muscles. However, Pugs have difficulty breathing, due to their extreme head shape. more.

Pugs are overrated, and really are ugly. Come on, think about it: they have a face that looks like they ran into a brick wall, bulging eyes that can fall out, and are so prone to health problems it's borderline animal cruelty. If you're a pug owner, what were you thinking? You picked a designer breed for the novelty of its looks, your dog will suffer. It's disgusting, what people have created. I do love all dogs (huskies are the best) but I just feel sorry for these. They should not even be a breed. People need to stop breeding or buying them. The pugs that are currently living should be treated like any other dog, but the breed as a whole really needs to stop existing. And before you scream at me, know it will be a lot better for your vet bill and the dogs themselves if you don't get one. Please don't get them.

How could somebody think that pugs are ugly?! Pugs are sweet and adorable!

Like the top comment, pugs are SUPER overrated and it does look like they ran into a brick wall.

Pugs are sooo CUTE! Who could think pugs are ugly? Their wrinkles make them extra adorable. So don't call a pug ugly.
