Origin history

The history of the origin of pugs goes back to the Far East, this breed is considered one of the oldest. The first mention of dogs, which in appearance resemble pugs, dates from the 2nd and 1st centuries BC. n e. During the reign of the Song Dynasty, these dogs were called Lo-Chi-Shi or Lo-Shi. Confucius described the pugs as short-legged and short-nosed dogs. Their images are found on figurines and porcelain vases of that period. These animals were considered very valuable, lived in luxury and enjoyed universal respect. It is believed that in the Imperial Book of Dogs, the ancestor of the present pugs is depicted, although its appearance is slightly different from the dog that we are used to seeing today.

In the XVI century, pugs were delivered to Holland on merchant ships, which very quickly became the favorites of the royal family, who came from the Oran dynasty. Particularly popular was a dog named Pompey, who sensed an approaching attack and sounded the alarm, thereby saving the life of his master. After this incident, the pug began to be depicted on the coat of arms of the Oran Dynasty. It is believed that pugs came to England in 1688 along with Prince of Orange of William, who later became king of England. During his reign, from 1689 to 1694, in the royal court, pugs took the place of dwarf spaniels and became the favorites of all noble people.

For their present appearance, pugs should be grateful to the British, who founded the British Pug Club in 1882. Only in the XIX century the fashion for them began to fade a little, but already in the XX century they again became dogs, which they began to evaluate at exhibitions, as well as companion dogs. Among the fans of this breed were such people as the philosopher William Hogarth, Queen Victoria, Napoleon, Louis XIV, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Josephine, fashion designer Valentino and many others.
