UK Standard

PUG - CARLIN - MOPS ( FCI n° 253)

This is an interim pug breed standard in force from 1 January to the end of June 2009. The Kennel Club suggestions for revisions are underlined. A sub-committee made up of delegates from each of the five UK pug clubs will discuss further refinements to be put to the Kennel Club before they release the final version later this year.

All standards will include the following introductory paragraph from January 2009:
A Breed Standard is the guideline which describes the ideal characteristics, temperament and appearance of a breed and ensures the breed is fit for function. Absolute soundness is essential. Breeders and judges should at all times be careful to avoid obvious conditions or exaggerations which would be detrimental in any way to the health, welfare or soundness of this breed. From time to time certain conditions or exaggerations may be considered to have the potential to affect dogs, in some breeds adversely, and judges and breeders are requested to refer to the Kennel Club website for details of any such current issues. If a feature or quality is desirable it should only be present in the right measure.

Decidedly square and cobby,it is 'multum in parvo' shown
in compactness of form, well-knit proportions and
hardness of muscle, but never to appear low on legs..

Great charm, dignity and intelligence.

Even tempered, happy and lively disposition.

Head relatively large, but always in proportion to body round, not apple-headed, with no indentation of skull. Muzzle relatively short, blunt, square, not upfaced. Nose fairly large with well open nostrils. Wrinkles on forehead clearly defined without exaggeration. Eyes or nose never adversely affected or obscured by over nose wrinkle. Pinched nostrils and heavy over nose wrinkle is unacceptable and should be heavily penalised.

Dark, not too very large, round globular in shape, soft and solicitous in expression, very lustrous, and when excited, full of fire. Never protruding, exaggerated or showing white. Free from obvious eye problems.

Thin, small, soft like black velvet. Two kinds - 'Rose ear' - small drop ear which folds over and back to reveal the burr. 'Button ear' - ear flap folding forward, tip lying close to skull to cover opening. Preference given to latter.

Slightly undershot. Wry mouth, teeth or tongue showing all highly undesirable. Wide lower jaw with incisors almost in a straight line.

Slightly arched to resemble a crest, strong, thick with enough length to carry head proudly.

Legs very strong, straight, of moderate length, and well under body. Shoulders well sloped.

Short and cobby, wide in chest. Ribs well sprung and carried well back. Topline level neither roached nor dipping.

Legs very strong, of moderate length, with good turn of stifle, well under body, straight and parallel when viewed from rear.

Neither so long as the foot of the hare, nor so round as that of the cat; well split-up toes; the nails black.

TAIL: (Twist)
High set, curled as tightly as possible over hip. Double curl highly desirable.

Viewed from in front should rise and fall with legs well under shoulder, feet keeping directly to front, not turning in or out. From behind action just as true. Using forelegs strongly putting them well forward with hindlegs moving freely and using stifles well. A slight, unexaggerated roll of hindquarters typifies gait.

Fine, smooth, soft, short and glossy, neither harsh, off-standing nor woolly.

Silver, apricot, fawn or black. Each clearly defined, to make contrast complete between colour, trace (black line extending from occiput to twist) and mask. Marking clearly defined. Muzzle or mask, ears, moles on cheeks, thumb mark or diamond on forehead and trace as black as possible.

Ideal weight: 6.3-8.1 kg (14-18 lbs).

Any departure from the foregoing points should be considered a fault and the seriousness with which the fault should be regarded should be in exact proportion to its degree.

Male animals should have two apparently normal testicles fully descended into the scrotum.
