"Ever consider what pets must think of us? I mean, here we come back from a grocery store with the most amazing haul - chicken, pork, half a cow. They must think we're the greatest hunters on earth!" ~Anne Tyler
Rose ears sort of fold themselves backwards and are, I think, more desirable. IMHO, the ears of most pugs seen today are too large to actually meet breed standard. Did you know that in the early 19th century, pugs ears were cropped, like fighting dogs? I our century, the ears of Brussels Griffon and Petit Brabacon (both pug descendants) are still cropped? I have a ceramic figurine dated approx. 1810 of a pug-dog with cropped ears.
