General Appearance-Symmetry and general appearance are decidedly square and cobby. A lean, leggy Pug and a dog with short legs and a long body are equally objectionable.

Clarification: The Pug should give a strong impression of squareness when viewed from any angle. Cobby means short bodied, thickset and square. All of the parts must fit together to form a harmonious unit. The most important concept to remember is square.
