Some people, like my wife, think pugs are ugly. Not sure if the term “pug-ugly” was based on the looks of these little guys, but it certainly could have. On the other hand, there is nothing cuter than a pug to a pug lover. I’m kind of on the fence on that argument, but there is something endearing about a pug cocking his head and giving you that “pick me up and pet me” look.
