So this is Beatrice at the beach (in the pink harness). I rescued her and dont know much about her background. I was told she is a purebred but after seeing her with the other pugs yesterday, I wonder. She looks different--her legs are longer and she is slimmer but within pug weight at 17 lbs. She also has less black on her face and ears and white (clear) nails. I am pretty sure she came from a backyard breeder, so maybe it is just poor breeding practices. Do you think she is a mix or all pug? If she is a mix, I have no idea what, any thoughts? She has the typical pug temperment and behaviors, and her coat is a pug coat. She snores and snorts, she follows me everywhere... she is super loving and sweet. I am just curious, it doesn't matter to me really, I love her to death. I just noticed yesterday that she looks a little different than the other pugs (they are more squat and chunky!)
She is very cute! She looks like a purebreed pug to me of the slimmer model. But it's not out of the question that something else is in there somewhere but what, I don't know.

She's a pug...I think with not the best breeding...but just as loveable!!! Would be great in agility!
In your second picture, the pug on the right looks just like mine.
Melts my heart every time I see one who looks like my baby :-)

He is a pic of Macie she is a bit long legged and lean.
Macie looks a bit like Beatrice in the body. It was just funny, Bea stood out among all the stout, squatty models! She was much faster than they were, too! :)
She looks different cause she's a super model. Long legs, slim body and gorgeous face!
Lola and Hank are lean mean puggy machines! They are not as squat. Bella, well she is a little on the "+ side". It's just breeding. They have the darker masks, but even they have veriations. I have had fosters with tons more color on their faces and some with less. She is all pug, just lighter makings is all.

I think shes cute, I had the same ?'s about my Lucy but as she grew out of the teenage faze she looks stockier and stouter...And Lucy is AKC Registered... How old is your girl? She may thicken up, As far as the marking I dont know, But I would go with what ShaynaPug said as she seems to be an expert and breeds and shows :)
