Early 20th century Pugs, 2. Photos

Notice that the Pug below has a bobtail. Renée Willes writes under a Photo of two Happa dogs with bobtails in the book Allt om mops that “reportedly the tails were not cropped but natural bobtails. It still happens today that Pugs are occasionally born with a bobtail” (2006: 112).
