Hilarious looking and with large personalities, Pugs are known for their playful and charming temperaments. They prefer the company of humans to other dogs and will become anxious if ignored. Pugs are one of the few breeds that perform no function. Originally they graced the laps of Chinese royalty, then in the 16th century moved across the globe to become the European aristocrat’s accessory of choice. Queen Victoria had quite a collection, only rivalled by the Duke and Duchess of Windsor who had eleven Pugs who ate off silver plates and wore Miss Dior perfume.
