Pug Shots
  • Pug Shots

  • Pugs have a cult following. Their wrinkly faces, protruding eyes and corkscrew tails make them one of the most oddly appealing breeds of dog. Perenially popular with royalty and the aristocracy (they were the mascot of the royal patriots in the Netherlands in the sixteenth century) they are now one of our best loved breeds. Jim Dratfield pays affectionate tribute, in words and pictures, to the charming canine with the Charlie Chaplinesque dignity. He doesn't shy clear of a pun either: among other adorable pugs we meet pug in a bug, litter pugs, hush pugs and pugs bunny. We even meet one particularly memorable character who is downright pugnacious. Lavishly illustrated with over 60 original full colour and sepia photographs, this is the ultimate present for pug and dog owners.

Originally from Princeton, New Jersey, Jim Dratfield spent fourteen years as an actor on stage and on television before leaving it all behind to become a pet photographer, and the managing director of Petography Inc. He is the author of Underdogs and The Quotable Equine, both published by Ebury Press. He can often be seen in Central Park, being walked by his Labrador, Caleb Hoover.
