Well, obviously Maggie May is a pug. We (my boyfriend and I) bought the DNA test kit from HappyDogDNA.com to see if she was mixed with another breed because she doesn't have a full mask and the signature black ears and she is also taller and leaner/longer than most pugs we've seen. Because of this, and some internet searches, we thought she might be part Boston Terrier (Bugg).
Her results came back (fairly quickly, we should add) as Level 1 Pug.
Interestingly enough, we did some research and found out that there are rare white pugs that, though not recognized by the AKC, are purebred. We're not jumping to any conclusions, but the similarities in mask and ear color are interesting.

Thanks for everything, Happy Dog DNA!
