Which of these dog breeds is ancient?

pug
Maltese
dachshund
poodle
The Pug is one of the oldest dog breeds in the world. Ancient Chinese doc­u­ments state that short­-nosed dogs with the de­scrip­tion matching that of the Pug existed in China at around 700 BC. These dogs were only breed and owned by the em­per­ors. It is believed there is an ancient Chinese law whereby only the emperor was allowed to own a Pug, anyone other than the emperor could only own a pug if it was a gift from the Emperor himself.
