to the level of the eye. The expression of the eyes is mostly soft, and the
eyes are round, dark and big. Pugs usually look animated and excited.
Furthermore, the muzzle or the snout of
the pug is broad. When the mouth gets closed, the tongue or teeth shouldn’t be
seen. Also, the Pug’s face wrinkles need to fold back to his nose and also add
the required character to his overall face.

need to have a thick and robust neck to provide support to its huge round head.

imaginary line right from atop the Pug's shoulder going to where the tail
starts. It needs to be at a level and very straight and shouldn't dip in the
middle. The pug needs to have a full and broad chest as well.

the pug coat to be glossy, fine, short and smooth. The black and fawn pugs have
a similar coat.
