With their flat wrinkled faces, pugs seem to have the most expressive facial expressions. Their ability to communicate with what seem like human emotions lend to their appeal, and lead to viral photos such as these in the gallery.

This little pug is not happy about the situation he is in, and is in dire need of some love and attention. Like many lap dogs, some pugs suffer from separation anxiety.
