I Have A 9 Month Old Male Fawn Pug And He's Not Your Typical Average Looking Chinese Pug, Or I've Been Told His Legs Are Not Short & His Head Is Small Compared To The Large Heads, I'm Not Sure How To Measure Him For Height, He Does How Ever Have All The Other Attributes Of A Chinese Pug, He Is A.K.C. Registered & Has Been D.N.A.'d As A.K.C. Requires It And So He's A Chinese Pug, Do All Pugs Come Short & Fat Or Other Like My Milo...

Some dogs can be purebred, but just very badly out of standard. Yours could be one of those. Can you post a pic?

Just to clarify something,there is no such thing as a Chinese Pug.
Here is a link.Click on the left where it says "about pugs"
I agree with LR about the very badly out of standard.
Where did you get your pug?

At 9 months your Pug is still growing. It could just be one of those awkward growth spurts where his body is not proportion....I would give him more time, take pictures and compare them later.
Pug's look like Manatee's when they are born. *just a note*

Also,DNA is not used for Registering dogs.
What I mean by that is when a pup is registered,all they do is put the Sire and Dams Registered name.That's all.They do not take DNA samples.

Now please understand, this question is just out of curiosity with no malice intended. When I first came to this site I couldn't figure out what all the acronyms were all about e.g. LMAO, ROTFL, etc. etc. Had to get a friend to explain them to me. Internet speak.
I've been seeing people, here and other places doing the thing with capitalizing the first letter of every word. So....what does that mean?
I feel old now.
As far as the Pug qualities go, I have nothing to offer. Don't know much about them other than they are cute with their little mush faces. Bob always finds them a curiosity as well. He stands over them looking down at their little faces wondering how they got so small.
