The Pug is a breed of dog available in Nintendogs and its 3DS sequel.

Breed Information

The Pug first originated in China around the time of the Shang Dynasty, around 400 BC, and was later popularized in the Netherlands. The wrinkles on its face that give it a cute appearance to some but an ugly appearance to others are caused by its "pushed in" snout. Perhaps one of their best features is their adaptability: Pugs can learn to love any lifestyle.

In-Game Description

Trivia

  • Pugs are brachycephalic, which means they have an abnormally short snout. This is also consistent in other animals in the games, such as the French Bulldog and Longhair Pointed Cat.
