I am very excited because my fiance and I have decided we are ready to get a dog! We live in a small apartment with two cats. Keeping these considerations in mind, we think we want to get a pug! We can’t get a puggle, because our apartment complex does not allow beagles or beagle mixes (because they howl a lot, I think.)
We want a dog that is friendly, good with cats, has moderate exercise needs, and is a quieter breed (although I recognize that no dog is completely quiet- that is a given!) Pug owners, do you think a pug is the right fit?

I have 2 pugs, both black one is almost 2 the other is 6. Pugs are great they adapt to your life. My dogs sleep in everyday! I have to drag them out of the house in the morning if they arent ready to get up they tell you! But if you want to take them for a walk or out to the park they would love that too. The little one has much more energy then the older one. Yet the older one still loves to play and run around the house. They dont bark all that much either. The only really bark when someone knocks at the door.

Here is my pom-a-pug and cat…he does get exciteable and loves going for walks, but sleeps A LOT. He also barks a lot if he hears something outside but I think that’s the pomeranian in him. He’s been around Kitty for about 9 months now and they tolerate each other well…with the except of the daily chase around the house, lol. They have never hurt each other though.

We have a pug who lived with 3 cats (we are down to one cat now). Our pug is very quiet. I’ve never met a pug that wasn’t sweet and nice and friendly towards other animals or people (including children)
If you want a goofball couch potato cuddle bug then pugs are for you. In my opinion they are the perfect size too, they are compact but sturdy. Our pug is a total lap dog without feeling like you could break it.
I wouldn’t feel right if I didnt mention the sheadiing though. They shed, A LOT. Expect to have everything you own covered in pug hair at some point.. Its annoying, but so worth it.

I have 2 puggles (pug + beagles). Be prepared…lots of pugs have skin issues and food allergies. One of my puggles has fairly severe allergies. They’re the most loving dogs though.
