Pugs are one of the oldest dog breeds in the world — many people believe that they originated about 2,000 years ago. Back then, pugs were bred to be companions for emperors of ancient China and Buddhist monks living in Tibetan monasteries. Luckily today, anybody can enjoy all the love and funny moments that these majestic dogs bring to the world.
