Pug

a small (14-18 lb), cobby dog with a large rounded head, prominent eyes, very short nose, and large, deep wrinkles on the forehead and face. The small ears fold over, the tail is curled over the back, and the coat is fine and very short in black, silver, apricot or fawn with a black mask. Called also Mopshond. The breed is predisposed to pigmentary keratitis and proptosis.
