Hi everyone I'm new here and will be getting my pug in a few weeks. I can't wait and love this site already.
I am curious though I have a female boston terrier and heard it would be best to get a male pug. Does anyone agree or is a female fine as well?
Anyways thank you all for having me I'm so excited to be here.
Welcome, I have a female Boston and two male pugs, they get along great. female Bostons can get kind of pushy. Male or Female I think would work fine,but I'm not an expert, others can answer your question better than me. Good luck
I'm no expert either, but I have read that male/male or female/male are better than female/female. I have a female and a male and besides preparing of the meals they get along wonderfully.
I'm sure someone who has lots more experience will chime in.

Hello and to PugVillage. Glad you have joined us.

Anecdotally, adding a male seems to work better. Girls sometimes are more prone to have clashes. That being said, every dog has his or her own personality.

Yes, in general, and there are always exceptions, male/male or male/female work best. Usually the female assumes the dominant position, especially since you are bringing a pup in to an adult established dog.
However there are plenty of girl/girl teams that get along well, it is only a very general rule.
If I were you though, I would look for a laid back male.
In a gentle way, you can shake the world.

I adopted an older female 2 years ago and she could care less who else (male or female) comes into the house as fosters. You never know...
