Celebrate National Pug Day by adding these Vancouver cuties to your Following list.
When it comes to dog breeds, there are few more universally adored than the pug, and as October 15 marks National Pug Day we thought it was the perfect time to highlight some of our favourite local pugs accounts. Playful, mischievous and very loving, pugs are so much more than just a pretty (and wrinkly!) face - although those adorably wrinkled brows and huge, sparkling eyes definitely add to their charm. While the pug's exact origin is still a mystery, many believe they were originally bred to be lap dogs for Chinese emperors more then 2000 years ago, and these low-maintenance pups have remained a popular choice for the rich and famous throughout history. Today, their small size, infrequent barking and shedding, and affection towards strangers are just some of the long list of qualities that make pugs so popular with Vancouver dog owners.
Of course, we may be a little biased, but we think Vancouver has some of the cutest pug Instagram accounts we've seen, so if you love this adorable breed then here are 9 local pug accounts you should add to your Following list today.
