Sorry I didn't reply to your PM about Pugs, Falconbrother! I put it aside to reply to later before school one day, and I forgot about it until now!
Anyway, I have a Pug named Frank the Pug after the Pug from Men in Black.
I should have named mine Percy after the Pug from Pocahontas, but it was just kind of a joke that stuck. Before we got a Pug, my mom and I always said we'd name it after the one from Men in Black. He's AKC registered, and I was going to show him when I got him, but then we found out he had an undescended testicle and would have to be neutered, which we didn't know about from the previous owner. The previous owner got him for just under $3,000 from a pet store, so I assume he's from a puppy mill and that's why he has the health issues with needing to be neutered, as well as impacted teeth.
I love Pugs, I had been researching them since I was seven, because my mom always said if we ever got a dog, it would be a Pug. When I was twelve, the research ended up paying off because I was able to get Frank from an owner that was really picky about where he went. She was asking for $200 for him, and I called and asked if we could have him for $150. She was very particular about who got him, and had interviewed a lot of people already, and seen people interact with him, but she wouldn't give him to any of them. She had just had a baby and I believe gotten divorced, and her family just couldn't take care of him fully, so she wanted to find him a good home but didn't want to give him to a shelter or rescue. So I called her, and she asked me a lot of questions about pugs, specific things about the different health issues, and everyday things like care and nutrition and walking and training, and she said we could come over. My mom and I went and then she watched the way we interacted with him, and then she decided that we could have him, and she also gave us a huge dog crate, a large crate full of dog food, another crate of milk bones, another of assorted treats, and some more pug books, his blankets and pillows, all that stuff, for free, which would've probably costed the $150 alone.
He's really a great dog, I've had no problems with him at all. He doesn't chew anything he's not supposed to (with the exception of a stuffed animal that my brothers accidentally mix up in Frank's toy bucket, but Frank probably just thinks its his now and doesn't mean to be bad), he doesn't wake me up early or anything, he's good with cats (most of the time, although he does chase her playfully, but just to lick and sniff her), he doesn't get into food, he learns quickly, and he doesn't bark.
I love the character of Pugs, too, the way they're so friendly and happy all the time! We've gotten another dog that isn't a Pug, and almost regretted it at first because we're used to Frank being perfect, while our new dog is going through puppy stages of trying to chew shoes or eat our food
But luckily Frank gets along with all dogs, he loves his girlfriend and he at least seems to be a good influence on her.
Our non-Pug has a habit of running down the street sometimes when we open the door and she's full of energy, and he runs after her, nips her ear and kind of yips at her, and then runs back home to us to try to get her to start running back, it's adorable.
