Thread: Calling Pug People Please

    Question Calling Pug People Please



    Yep peeking out and want to ask someone who knows

    Ok got lots of answers in my which breed topic, but I keep coming back to pugs but don't know a heck of a lot about them, was told we have a couple of pug people on here??

    Looking for a new small dog for our family, live on large acreage, with horses and cats and 2 aussie shepherds.

    don't want at terrier type (been there), and the dog in question would primarily be an inside dog and friend to my 9yr old, but we do want a dog that gets on well with cats (3 burmese live in the house) and one that can go out and play with my other two dogs and generally enjoy life.

    Something with a gentle nature, fun but doesn't have to be over the top energetic (we don't do walks living on such a large block, 82acres they get enough exercise helping to feed the horses).

    cheers

    Does the thought of spending money, sometimes in huge amounts, at the Vets appeal?

    If so, a Pug might be suitable for you.

    That also sounds like a Staffy... (well, i havent spent a lot of money on her at the vets, but the rest is her all over!)

    Oh my

    Well I have 14 horses so very used to sending my vet away on great overseas trips

    Hair all over my clothes, hmm you obviously haven't lived with 3 hairy burmese and 1 very fluffy cat (who by the way is an outside cat we just haven't convinced him yet, he's only 11 plenty of time yet).Oh and we have leather, just for that reason, and heck my clothes seem to come out of the wash covered in hair, have given up trying to look reasonable

    snoring, I snore so loudly I wake myself up, not to mention the OH or the 9yr old, my burmese female, whines in my ear when she's asleep, plus takes up all the bed between her and the two boys, I need to buy another bed I think.

    A Velcro dog, hmm now that does appeal. Every been sneezed on by a horse??? green slime all over you, just delightful.

    A pug just may suit us you know.......

    But seriously with their health due to their faces, what do we have to be careful of? we live in a relatively hot area, but cooler than most of QLD and are moving to a cold climate later in the year, are they playful, easy to train, hard to train, do they bark a lot?

    all help appreciated cheers

    You should look into a cavalier.. pugs are 24 hour entertainers and not exactly gentle natured plus going down to feed the horses in the heat would probably kill them with their snuffling etc.

    I think they are more similar to a pig mixed with seal

    I have to say, nothing is worse than 2 bulldogs snoring! I stayed at mums for a few weeks when I moved home - The dogs slept out near the window of the room I was staying in, OMG!! I had to go and sleep on the lounge in the other room they were making so much noise!
