    I don't have one myself but a friend does and I know she has to make sure all his folds are clean all the time, as the sweat/dirt can cause infections etc. apart from that he's a lovely dog.

    Have a look at a few videos on the net for advice.

    The myth is that they are not interested in any training. But I've found them to be intelligent little angels. Of the 16 puppies I've raised from birth to 8 weeks, most have been toilet trained to use puppy pads. Almost all walk without a lead, and are obedient, and even play fetch!

    they are so easy to train, and do almost anything for a kiss and cuddle

    they are he most adorable loveable breed, and I'd never be without my girls.

    We have a 13 month old pug called Spud..... I bought him for my son as fur therapy (my son has been ill for 3 years). Although I think pugs are cute I would never have bought one, but the little guy stole my heart right from the off.....

    You should be aware that pugs shed and shed and shed and as for passing wind ... truly evil

    The are also very stubborn but so affectionate and loving and a joy to live with (gas mask not included)
