The American Lo-Sze Pugg™ was created in the United States as a rebuild of an ancient Chinese breed. Small, short-nosed dogs were very popular in ancient China, and historical records date their presence back to the time of Confucius. Throughout Chinese history, several breeds of short-headed, short-nosed dogs developed. These breeds were exclusively reserved for royalty, and illustrations of these dogs are found in ancient Chinese art. One of the three major breeds of this era was the Lo-Sze, a little dog that is surprisingly similar to the modern Pekingese, and the breed that led to the evolution of the modern Pug. American Lo-Sze Puggs™ gained recognition in 1998, after a woman by the name of Rebecca Manns began researching the history of the Pug. She was disappointed that the ancient Lo-Sze was changed to suit the desires of those who craved a taller, fawn-colored specimen. She decided to breed a dog much like the multi-colored, shorter-legged, original Lo-Sze. The result of her endeavors was the American Lo-Sze Pugg™.
