Oak-tree?

I'm not sure of this, but it looks a bit more like Oak-tree Pug to me - what do others think?

The 'waviness' of the white

The 'waviness' of the white bar outside the discal spot, and the angle of the dark bar meeting the costa immediately by the discal spot, and the relative positions of this bar and the spot would make this Brindled for me - Oak-tree does more usually have the heavy discal spot seen here, but the other markings don't seem to quite fit. I'm by no means a pug expert though!
