It seems somehow fitting that this most iconic of ‘toy’ dogs should itself be made into a stuffed toy. Now, pugs are by their nature, already pretty adorable, assuming one is fond of small, squish-faced dogs who have copious quantities of charm and personality in equal measure to their health problems.
Pugs are adorable, but they’re not too easy to raise. Lou Rankin helps ease the worry of raising a real dog by providing a plush Pug who is every bit as cute as the real thing. Part of the Best Friends collection, you can tell his plush pedigree by looking him in the eye. Rankin made a name for himself with his memorable sculptures where he imbued almost every animal one can think of with the timeless and ‘aww’-inducing qualities that appeal to young girls and lovers of plush the world over. So these plushes were the next logical step. You can’t cuddle a sculpture after all.
The pug hails originally from China, though enjoyed much fame and popularity in Scotland and England respectively. Now, it’s one of the most well-loved breeds in the dog world. Stafford here manages to combine a certain elegance with the sweetness that is his trademark. The pug’s short, muscular body provides him with loads and loads of energy, They’re also sturdy enough to make great companions for kids, and are loving and loyal enough to serve as decent watchdogs, though only the most craven of intruder would be warned off by this pint-sized pooch. Still, all that should matter to you is that this memorable stuffed animal can be yours, and he makes an impression on everyone he meets. Why not you?
