The Brug is a small dog, cross-bred between two toy pure breeds, the Brussels Griffon and the Pug.

The Pug had long graced the laps of Chinese nobles and royals before it was introduced to Europe in the 16th century by traders of the Dutch East India Company. This flat-faced dog is also known as a lion dog or foo dog, similar to stone statues set outside palaces and monasteries as guardians against evil spirits.

The Brussels Griffon, a Belgian breed, is often identified with two other breeds, the Griffon Beige and Petit Brabancon, that in some countries are considered to be just varieties of that one breed. It is a toy dog with an almost visible air of self-importance and a soft temperament typical to lap dogs that have nothing more required of them than to receive and reciprocate affection.
