that we would have genetic mutation to thank for “adorable” pugs faces. But, believe it or not, subtle changes to DNA can create incredible results. The University of Edinburgh's Roslin Institute found that pugs flat facial features are due to a mutation of the SMOC2 gene.
Human babies are also known to have the condition; brachycephaly. The discovery in pugs means that babies can now be screened to monitor changes in the SMOC2 gene. Making diagnosing the condition in human babies much easier.
