I really don't get it. Why on earth would anyone ever want a freakin pug as a pet? They are the WORST breed ever! They shed like nothing else I've ever seen (I can't hold my girlfriend's pug without it covering my clothes in a layer of freakin hair), they are fat and lazy, they won't even fetch a freakin frisbee for pete's sake! Not to mention you've got the overheating issue, can't even take them for a walk outside if it's more than 70* outside without them collapsing! And they snort and snore like crazy! My girlfriend's pug snores so loud it drives me NUTS! They're pretty worthless dogs to be honest. They don't do much. They just sit there and **** and expect everyone to kiss their ass all day and feed them all the time. The only good thing I can think of is that they are super cute but that's about it.
So anyways, why would anyone want all that when there's much better breeds of dogs out there?
Why would anyone join a pug forum to complain about pugs.
On a lighter note- My pugs are not fat, not anywhere near lazy, are pretty amazing at fetch. Don't overheat. Live in florida where it is almost year round over 80 degrees and we go for hour walks/jogs daily. Dont snort. Dont snore, have no breathing issues.
They DO make incredible companions, are amazingly friendly- and cute to boot.

I'm wondering why any woman would keep some dude around who disses her dog and comes on public forums, slamming the entire breed! If you want to keep her, you'd be wise to learn to adore her pug even more than she does. Otherwise, you'll become 'worthless' to her and she'll realize there are 'much better breeds out there'.

First of all, the humans decide whether a dog gets fat or not. We control food intake. If your girlfriend's pug is fat, it needs to go on a diet. That is likely to not only decrease snoring and snorting, but also to make it more energetic. It is bad for their breathing and overall health to be overweight.
I have two pugs and they are neither fat, nor boring nor lazy. We take long walks every day, we do obedience training and we do agility. They love learning new tricks. They are funny, playful and more affectionate than any other dog I know. So there are plenty of reasons to have one.

why would you join this page to complain to the people who love their dogs? I love my pug. His snoring drives my fiancee up the wall, but he tolerates it because he knows my dog and me are a package deal. For starters my dog lays right by my side when I am sick..dont know many men with that sort of loyality, if someone lifts a hand to harm me, my dog puts himself between me and that person, letting them know it isnt going to happen. He is the best watch dog I have ever had. Sure he snores and sheads.. and somedays he drives me nuts but I would take ten of my pug before I would deal with some jerk that hates him.
I'm going to take the OP as somewhat tongue in cheek for now.
