They soon caught on and, barely 50 years later, pet pugs were an absolute must throughout the European Courts.
Goya painted prize pet pugs in Spain and, in Italy, pampered pugs kitted out in matching jackets and pantaloons rode up front with coachmen on private carriages.
And, give or take the odd corgi, they’ve long been the darling of royalty — Queen Victoria was mad on pugs, kept 36, bred them herself and preferred the apricot and fawn colouring to the more traditional black pugs imported from China in the late 1900s.
But there are also a good many reasons not to love them.

Because pugs are also one of the most inbred of all dog breeds — all 10,000-plus of Britain’s pugs are descended from just 50 animals. They suffer from dislocated knees, chronic stomach problems, collapsed larynxes, curvature of the spine, obesity, infected skin folds, elongated soft palates and terrible respiratory problems — hence the wheezing and rasping — bought about because of their genetically flattened faces. Thanks to their lack of snout (the natural state for a dog is to have a long protuberant nose to help it breathe and keep cool) they can’t regulate their own temperature, overheat terribly in summer and are prone to ‘reverse sneezing’ — a horrible snotty gasping and snorting when they’re excited. A pug’s eyes are so protuberant that they’re forever becoming ulcerated from scratches by brambles, cat’s claws, pretty much anything.
