  • That the truest form of this breed began to arise in the 16th century in China? They arrived in other parts of the world thru sailors from the Dutch India Trading Co. that took this breed with them on their worldly voyages.

  • It’s believed that at some point in their evolution they mixed with other small, compact dogs, such as the English Bulldog. Even Pugs get lonely for canine companionship on their long salty trips if you know what we mean.
