Symmetry

Symmetry and general appearance, decidedly square and cobby. A lean, leggy pug and a dog with short legs and a long body are equally objectionable. Size and Condition. - The pug should be multum in parvo, but this condensation (if the word may be used) should be shown by compactness of form, well-knit proportions, and hardness of developed muscle. Weight from 13 lbs. to 17 lbs., dog or bitch. Body. - Short and cobby, wide in chest, and well ribbed up. Legs. - Very strong, straight, of moderate length, and well under. Feet. - Neither so long as the foot of the hare nor so round as that of the cat; well split-up toes, and the nail black. Muzzle. - Short, blunt, square, but not up - faced. Head. - Large, massive, round, not apple-headed, with no indentation of the skull. Eyes. - Dark in colour, very large, bold, and prominent, globular in shape, soft and solicitous in expression, very lustrous, and, when excited, full of fire. Ear. - Thin, small, soft, like black velvet. There are two kinds, the "rose" and "button." Preference is given to the latter. Markings. - Clearly defined. The muzzle or mask, ears, moles on cheeks, thumb-mark or diamond on forehead, back-trace, should be as black as possible. Mask. - The mask should be black. The more intense and well-defined it is the better.

Wrinkles. - Large and deep. Trace. - A black line extending from the occiput to the tail. Tail. - Curled tightly as possible over the hip. The double curl is perfection. Coat. - Fine, smooth, soft, short, and glossy, neither hard nor woolly. Colour. - Silver, or apricot fawn. Each should be decided, to make the contrast complete between the colour and the mask and trace. N.B. - The points of black pugs, except as to colour, are the same as those for fawns.
