How Much Does a Pug Cost?

A pug is a small, stocky dog with a round head and square-shaped muzzle.

The pug is considered to have ties to the Pekingese and Shi Tzu, but there’s no clear date as to when the Pug was introduced due to the lack of records available.

The pug was recognized by the American Kennel Club in the mid-1880s.
