Pugs don't get as much love as they should. After all, it's not their fault we bred them to look like that! Pugs are one of the oldest dog breeds, most famously loved for their faces that look rather unfortunately squashed. Fortunately, pugs also have adorable tail curls, as well as big beautiful puppy eyes that are pretty hard to resist. Pug owners find it hard to resist their charm and allure, and pugs are pretty good at melting just about anyone's heart. Whether you're a pug fan or not, pug puns have a knack for making a bad day just a little bit more tolerable.
Pugs are adorable in their own right, but it helps the animal pun game that their name is so short. Such a short breed name lends itself to a variety of hilarious memes, puns, and jokes, so we're kind of loving the pug life over here. Here are some of our favorites.
