Pugs and the Media
Pugs are probably the most represented animal on social media, in blogs, commercials, youtube, instagram and film. They take well to dressing up, or rather being subjected to dressing up by their owners, and generally, they enjoy participating in any fun that's happening around them.
There is so much available that we only have a few examples here, let us know your favourites on our facebook page so that we can share the antics of humorous, loveable pugs (and their owners).
