Pugs are a breed of dogs that make everyone around them happy and cheerful. Their cheerful, friendly and spontaneous nature attracts attention and makes everyone smile. These dogs literally radiate happiness and joy, and next to them, it is never boring!
One of the most recognizable traits of pugs is their cute face. The muzzle of pug dogs is short, flattened, and insanely pretty. As a rule, the muzzle of pugs has a black or chocolate color. But the main thing in the muzzle of a pug is its expressive, shiny eyes. They are big, bright, and full of energy. They allow the pug to express his emotions and feelings, and make him even more likeable to us.
Another important and recognizable feature of pugs is their varied coloring. It can be very diverse: from pure black or white and silver, golden or red. However, the most popular and classic color is apricot. This color suits pugs especially well and makes them even cuter!
If you decide to draw a pug, then do not forget to pay attention to these details and the characteristic features of his appearance. Also pay attention to its proportions: pugs have rather short legs and body, and a large head. Remember that each pug has its own individual traits, so when drawing, you can experiment and complement it with a unique personality. Let’s get started!

How to Draw a Pug
- Outline the head.
First draw the pug’s head in the shape shown, then add the oval spots for the eyes.
- Add the face parts.
Following the example from the step, draw the eyes in the spotted areas that you drew in the previous step. Then draw the nose and a line above the nose.
- Draw the muzzle.
Start this step by drawing the muzzle of the pug. Detail the pug’s forehead by adding wrinkles using curved lines. Then draw round reflections of light in the pug’s eyes.
- Add the ears.
Draw folded ears on both sides of your pug’s head. Then add the curved line for the dog’s chin.
- Outline the body.
Extend curved lines from under the pug’s head and outline the dog’s body.
- Draw the legs.
Now, on the drawn body, add the front and back legs of your pug. The hind leg of the pug should be folded, as the pug in the example is in a sitting position. Draw the front legs straight.
- Add the collar and hind leg.
Now you need to draw the collar on the dog’s neck, then add the second hind leg of the pug.
