The Very Cutest Pug T-Shirts

by WiseFool

T-shirts for pug owners of both genders and all sizes. These cute shirts make the perfect gift for that pug lover in your life.

I'm going to lay my cards on the table and admit that I'm not typically a fan of little dogs. Usually, I much prefer the larger breeds: Newfoundlands, Rottweilers, German Shepherds and the like. However, there is one small dog that I just cannot resist. Yep, you've guessed it, the pug.

I can't say with absolute certainty what it is about them I adore; I have a feeling it's something about those big, beautiful eyes that makes me go, quite literally, mushy. On top of those come-on-you-can't-resist-these eyes, pugs are sweet-natured little cuties, so it's no wonder that they're a popular breed.

It's also little wonder that those irresistible faces make great shirt designs. Here are just a few of the very cutest pug T-shirts.

Cute Pug T-Shirts for Women

There are a great number of cute pug T-shirt designs and styles for women. Most of them make the very most of the pug's adorable face - you'll see exactly what I mean once you scroll down.

These are just a few of my very favorites. 

One of the characteristically 'pug' moves is that fabulous head tilt. There are, of course, other dog breeds that offer a great head tilt too. But, coupled with those big, brown eyes, it's an expression that can melt hearts - it certainly melts mine, anyway.

This little cutie, with a tag far too big for his or her body, comes from AnimalShuirtsUSA. I really love the vintage-esque look with the slightly distressed appearance on the fabric. Because these are individually made, no two will be exactly the same, which means that your shirt will be unique!

One of the other big advantages of these shirts is that they're made using an environmentally friendly water-based ink; not only is this super green, but it also means that the pug image shouldn't flake or peel, no matter how many washes and wears it sees.

The phrase 'pugs not drugs' was first coined by designer Gemma Correll, and has since spread like wild fire.

It can now be found on every pug-themed accessory, knick-knack and piece of clothing imaginable.

Okay, so as sayings go, it's a little on the silly side, but it's true. Pugs (or any other dog for that matter) do have the ability to lift our spirits and make us feel high on life.

This sweet cap sleeved shirt is available with black (as shown), brown or red trim. It's a comfortable and cute casual top.

Now, this is what I mean about the pug face. Eyes that are far too big for their heads; heads that look too big for their bodies...could they be any sweeter?

How could you resist that? Tell me, how could you say 'no' to that adorable little pug's mug?

You can probably see the similarity between this T-shirt and the other AnimalShirtsUSA above. And, just like that one, these are individually made so won't all look exactly alike. More importantly, the design shouldn't fade or chip no matter how much you wear it.

And, let's face it, it's going to get a LOT of wear.

It's not just the external appearance of the pug that does it for me - I'm not that shallow. The other reason I love these dogs is that they are kind-hearted. I've never known a snappy pug, let alone a vicious one. 

So, 'hugs' and kisses is exactly what you get from them.

This is another great comfortable, casual shirt (made from 100% cotton), with the fun pug face design. One of the things I really love about the image on this shirt is that you catch a glimpse of that tiny pink tongue. All together now, "awwww!" 

Yep, another AnimalShirtsUSA T-shirt. You've gotta love 'em. 

This one has a very regal looking fawn pug...and, to complete that look of a monarch surveying his or her land, a crown.

So, if your pug is the king or queen of your heart (or even your household), this might be the ideal choice for you.

As with all of the AnimalShirtsUSA tops, this cute pug T-shirt is made using eco water-based ink and is created individually. Although, like the other two designs shown above, this has that slightly distressed look, it also has incredibly vibrant color making this design much brighter than the others I've mentioned above. 

Cute Pug T-Shirts for Men

Okay, so now let's take a look at some of the best pug T-shirts for men. These, of course, might also be ideal for girls who like a looser fit...and, let's face it, we all like a looser fit now and again.

How about a nice up-close look at a pug's beautiful face?

This little sweetness, with his big ol' tongue hanging out, is a photo design tee.

The shirt comes in three sizes: medium, large and extra large.

I would have liked to have seen it in different colors, but, unfortunately, white appears to be the only color available.

On the plus side though, the shirt is made from 100% organic cotton, making it extremely comfortably and an easy washer.

This is a very cute and relatively simple black and white image of a pug who looks like he could use a hug and a kiss.

Like the women's shirt above, this design plays on the rhyming of 'hug' and 'pug', which is fun. The really great news about this T-shirt is that it comes in a whole range of sizes from a baby's six months to a six-X large. 

It also comes in four colors: white, baby pink, light blue and gray. I will just add though, the color leaches through into the image (tinting the pug's face), so white and gray seem to work best.

'What about the black pugs?' I hear you cry. Well, here's one that is sweet enough to die for.

This little puppy in a cup, with the caption 'I'll take mine back', is utterly adorable. 

This pug T-shirt is available from Zazzle, so it's got all the usual color options - some of which do affect the tint of the image, so play around until you find one you like. 

It's also worth mentioning that it can be purchased in adult sizes from small to three-X large.

How about a beautifully sketched pug face and paws?

These shirts are designed by artist L. J. Grove, who has captured the plaintive look of a pug wonderfully.

These pug shirts come in six colors: ash, light blue, baby pink, off-white, white (which is pictured) and pistachio green. Because this T-shirt uses a sketch rather than a photograph, you don't have the problem I've mentioned above of color leaching through to the design. So all of the colors look pretty cool.

Sizes are also very varied, going from kids' extra small all the way up to men's five-X large. 

Cute and Funny Pug T-Shirts

As I've mentioned above, pugs are among the sweetest souls around; they love everybody and (usually) every other animal they come into contact with. So, it tickles me to think of a 'bad' pug.

These two funny pug T-shirt designs, therefore, amuse me greatly. The thought of a pug being a 'Godless killing machine' is so ridiculous it's hilarious.

Moreover, any excuse to use the pug puns has got to be taken advantage of - pug mugs in of itself is very funny. Add to that the caption, 'good pugs gone bad' and you've really got something!

Both of these funny pug T-shirt designs are available on Zazzle, with all the usual color and size choices.
