Description: The Pug is stubby and muscular with a wide chest, straight, very strong front legs and well-muscled hind legs. They receive their name "Pug" from the Latin word that means "clenched fist". To communicate with humans the Pug makes a grunting nasal noise, somewhat like a pig. Being snuggled down at your feet snoring or being close to you, but unobtrusive, are some of a Pug 's favorite activities.
