    i would also like to know if she is a good example of the breed, her mouth seems a bit narrow to me although she is not undershot or anything , like i have posted earlier i am normally a boxer guy ;-) still has dew claws though , very disappointing tbh , other than that shes excellent , love her to bits , the dews aint a issue as i don't show anymore & purely a pet

    She is a pretty girl and the pink looks lovely on her black fur.

    Pugs shouldn't wear collars, as it stresses their already delicate throats and can cause tracheal or laryngeal collapse. If she wears one, have it just for her tags, and use the harness to attach the leash. By the way, she's adorable!

    I'd keep the collar just for her tags but use the harness for walking. If a dog gets lost and has micro chip and owner info on tags, the quicker they will get back home. It will also save a possible drop off at a shelter or vet to scan for micro chip. You just never know.
    BTW I saw a tag the other day that read "I'm the favorite."
    She looks pretty in pink.

    The collar is pretty.

    There is no requirement to remove dew claws for showing a pug. It is a common practice but can be controversial. There was quite a heated thread on here about it some years ago. There's pros and cons - no dewclaws means no dewclaws getting ripped off or scratching puggy eyes. Both my boys have dewclaws and so long as you keep them trimmed they don't seem to be a problem. Mine use them as a rudimentary thumb sometimes.

    She looks nice and I see nothing wrong with her lower jaw. She has a feminine look and one of the things I like about pugs is that you can generally tell the pug's gender by the face. Not always, but more often than with other breeds. She may or may not grow into the potential she is showing now.
