Rumy doesn't really howl, but he does the "black pug scream". It's usually when he gets really upset and I'm trying to hold him - it sounds literally like a women screaming. It hurts my ears while I'm holding him and people stop in their tracks to see who's been run over by a car or stabbed. He's started doing a minor variation when he sees my son-in-law and of course, Brandon starts getting him excited by talking to him in a high pitched voice when he comes.
My daughter says Gummi does the same scream only when the Chinese food delivery man comes. It's a particular guy and when they hold Gummi, she just screams like she's dying. Not a howl, a scream.
So far, Roxi just barks and whimpers a lot. Nothing too scary as of yet.
Mommy to Daruma Gene, the Pug of Perfection...and Roxi Lou, my sweet crazy furkid.
