    I have a pug and I absolutely love her to death. Pugs are the perfect companion pet. They not aggressive, they love to play, they are cute, they all have their own personalities. They will never leave your side. They need a lot of affection. If you show them love they will show it right back! The only things are that they snore very loud, lick themselves A LOT, they shed A LOT, their breath smells and they need to have their wrinkles and ears cleaned alot. But all dogs need to be cared for and kept clean, so their care is not much different than any other dog. All in all, pugs are perfect pets.

    Not my favorite breed but they're ok. Some of their expressions are funny.

    Great breed of dog but not for everyone read up on these before purchasing or adopting. If you are looking for a loyal companion that sheds a lot this is your dog. We own 2 of them and and would not trade them for a million bucks.

    My dad just got one this past year. So here's my list: Pros: - Great personality; real chill and would never hurt a fly - Great companion; content sitting on your lap all day - Will stick to himself and just sleep if you let him Cons: - Stubborn; will ignore you most times you call him (unless you have food) - Gets stinky really fast - Snores and makes a lot of breathing noises - Not the most attractive fellow in town - Skin problems I would never buy a dog like this for myself, but I've gotten used to my dad's.

    Initially thought these were a waste of time, but they were some of the best dogs I ever had. These little nerds trust you unconditionally. You can pull the same jokes on them over and over and they sigh, knowing it's going to be awful, then fall for it anyway. Great dogs.

    we have a pug and he is a good dog. very stubborn but very smart. you need patience to train him because he is very stubborn. he does shed a lot. you need to clean his face often.

    I'm sure these dogs are the Best in the World to those who get them, but you can't go hiking With them and since that's mainly what I look for in a dog, I can't see my self ever getting one.

    These little creatures - can they even be called dogs? - look like they've been drowned and mauled by a killer whale, hit by a school bus twenty times, shot in the face forty times, raped by a thousand roaches, and leaked all over by rabid squirrels with STDs. Personally, I'd never get one.

    These seem to have become the designer dog de jour at least where I live. Personally, I'd sooner own a turtle. The ones I've met are certainly friendly enough, with no appearance of hypertension or nervous aggression, but they are ugly as a plateful of mortal sin, snort continuously and have an appearance of pop-eyed stupidity that I find utterly unappealing.

    I don't know the temperament of these dogs, but they sure are ugly. Their eyeballs seem to rotate in different directions and they make an awful sound when their tongues hang out.

    Their cute and affable little creatures. Ever wonder why they were bread with a flat nose and strong desire to lick things...

    I have three pugs and I just adore them. They are funny, smart, and affectionate. They are playfull and an all around GREAT dog. They are my favorite breed. The only down side to them is that they shed constantly, so keep a soft rubber curry brush going every other week, or be prepared to have pug hair specs on everything. I think the black pugs shed less than the fawn pugs. The fawn pugs have a double under coat, where as the black pugs - at least my little girl, has fur that is more like a short haired cat. I just love these dogs. They are notorious for their head titling when you talk to them. And the more you talk to them, the more words they learn. I just love the breed. I also have a Doberman Pinscher which we adore and she likes the puggy girls. My pugs names are Penny, Pamela and Paul. My daughters family also has a pug and she is a great dog.

    I'm a sucker for the brachycephalic dog breeds. These guys are cute, eager to please clowns. But do yourself a favor and put some scratch aside for future vet bills. These guys are very sensitive to heat and anesthesia. And may have health problems due to their flat faces. And they snore. A lot. But if you have an inactive lifestyle, don't care about the snoring and snorting (and some are gassy) and want a cute little clown, then these can be your best friend. Use humane, positive enforcment training ONLY.

    sweet and endearing though so so ugly.. I've got an old pug (12 yrs old). Such a sweetheart, he gets excited whenever he sees me in the morning and when i come back from work, he starts galloping like a horse.. No aggression, not interested in other dogs, he loves being around people. 10 stars!!

    I have a Pug and she is 3 going on 4 ina few months. She is the friendliest little dog there is, and she is such a lap dog. I got her as a puppy on Christmas. Pugs don't require a lot of exercise, and they do snort sometimes, but I don't mind at all. They don't drool, which is a big positive. They are far from ugly, too. I would recommend a Pug to anyone, just make sure that it is what you want, because the are quite a lapdog.

    These are the ugliest, stupidest, most untrainable dog I have ever been around. And they can be very aggressive especially small children. So to those of you out there that want one or think tehy are cute, look again.

    These are good dogs and I have yet to meet an aggressive one. One thing I love about them is that they bond so well with other Pugs. It's almost a shame to get just one because they seem to really need eachother. The thing I will never understand though is that every family of Pugs I meet always hump eachother...truly bizarre!!

    I'm biased because I have a Pug but he is the most wonderful dog in the WORLD! If you like BIG dogs you will like Pug's even though they are little. They are like miniature Mastiff's. Always sweet, kind, playful, and great with children. Pugs are very smart and a little stubborn. They are sensitive to heat and cold and shed a lot. They can also have some health problems because they are so deformed. They are so cute, they are PUGLY! :)
