Has anyone had experience with soft x pens like this one? Are they sturdy enough for a wild pug? I would like one that is big enough to fit her when she's older as well. What size should I get (assuming this would be a good option for my pup)? I would like something that is very easy to put up and take down. I also need something easy to store, because I live in a small condo and don't have space to store another thing.
Those are pretty fancy.
Lots of people on here use this kind, Kennel-Aire Exercise Pen with Door - 36" - Gates & Exercise Pens - Dog - PetSmart
They come in different sizes and are very easy to set up and store.

Get metal and at least the 36" high, he will chew through the soft sided stuff if he is really wild and jump over anything lower. I use soft crates for mine, but never for a foster cause you don't know how they will react. I have the metal Xpen.

Metal ones are much more practical because you can make them different shapes. I frequently use mine as a makeshift babygate if we have builders in the house and I need to confine the pugs to a particular area. They fold up completely flat so are easy to store, and there is no risk of the pug chewing through them.

*sometimes* they turn up on craigslist... but 30" minimum (And metal) is my suggestion... it's too too terrible if they get out and into something that could be deadly to them...

Thanks for the advise, especially about the height.
I personally have a 36'' metal x pen that I bought for my 2 yr old Chihuaha last year and it worked great for him But he just recently learned how to jump a baby gate without any problems. My 5 month old pug has also starting jumping the babygate which is 27" so I am really concerned whether or not the will figure out how to jump out of the x pen too in a few more months when the weather is nice again and the pen is put back out? But it definitely worked good last year to keep the Chihuaha in so hopefully it still works.
