A pug has a friendly disposition and is highly affectionate. They have plenty of personality and will get along with people, children and even the ear pulling of babies. They can be stubborn at times but their temperament and energy will usually be aimed at cuddling and playfulness. The Pug has been bred for the purpose of being a companion dog and great companions they are.
What is the real cost of buying and owning a Pug?

Do Pugs bark a lot? And how loud are they?
The answer is, yes, of course they bark, this is how they communicate. Gladly though, Pugs are not very loud barkers, and compared to most other breeds they don’t bark a lot. I like to think of Pugs a ‘Practical Barkers’ meaning they will bark to make a point, to convey a certain message or if they think it is necessary.
The answer is yes, they can, and it does happen. Eye Displacement is a real medical condition called Proptosis. Short-nosed breeds, called Brachycephalic Breeds, have very shallow eye sockets and with the right (or wrong) kind of pressure or force, the eyeball itself can be dislodged from its place.
