I feel like I'm having to defend my pug because of his unusual color. The lady I got Oscar from didn't properly care for the puppies...Oscar's tail was broken in two places at birth so it won't completely curl. With his brindle color, white patch on his chest, and messed up tail I'm having random people look at my page and tell me he shouldn't be excepted as a pug! What kind of crap is that? You can google "brindle pugs" and find several websites for them, and they all look like Oscar (with the exception of the messed up tail, lol). I wondered myself when I got him so when he went to his first vet appt. my vet told me he was a normal pug aside from his tail, but you just don't come across to many brindles.
Sorry, I'm venting but I think its crap that someone would be rude enough to question me about Oscar.
