My Pugsleigh was a black baby that we got from a breeder.
She was very hyper, tiny boned and petite, yet strong and muscular. She was patient and loving, but she did not like to be held, unless she was hurt or in pain (example after being spayed or sick).
She was very independent. She was curious, stubborn and naughty. all at the same time. She had a jealous nature, because she grew up with out any other pugs until she was 5 years old. I thought that all black pug babies were the same. She was our DIVA pug.
Now I wonder if that very description could describe any femal pug.
All that I know is she is missed by me and my entire family and my
little fawn Lola, is anything but perfect.
Wednesday is probably the sweetest of my bunch. She's short and stocky to put it nicely but not wild in any way. She is the one that sticks right by my side. Wesley the old black boy is just as mellow. Sometimes I have to check and see if he still has a pulse. He motors along at his own speed. Then there's Jed. Smart as a whip that one but he's my wild child. Heaven help me if he could see!! He will play non stop if I let him but on the other hand is sweet as pie. Ringo does the scream. So in my house it's the fawn ones that keep me on my toes.

My boys that see with their hearts.
I am going to consult with you for advice, Kim.
My goal is for a "mellow" pug, although that
future thought is still very far away.
Your description sounds like you know our little black devil Dinara personally. She gets into everything and then blames her fawn brother. We don't buy it though.Originally Posted by Pugsleigh
When I die, I want to be reincarnated as my pug.
I think all dogs are different, just depends on the dog, not the breed or color. Just like humans. I'm nothing like my brothers and sister. But you never know I suppose. Olivia is sweet, naughty, demanding and loving all at the same time. You never know what personality you're going to get with her. It just depends on her mood. Right now she's sleeping=she is sweet. Earlier she was barking at me and pulling on my pants because she wanted to leave=naughty and demanding.

Hey, that's Indy!!! He's our black pug and ohhhhhh is he trying! But he's also super extra sweet. Hooligan is fawn, and very laid back. He's very much like Cindi's BJ! He moves for food, and that's about it. I have no idea whether it's color or just genes, Indy was a rescue so we have no idea of his first year of life.Originally Posted by Pugdawg1
My two fawns are MUCH easier to train. My black has an extreme wild streak and a need to climb like a cat!
Nell is a screamer! She's just very vocal in general. She's my "problem child" (as if we didn't all know that already! ) She's very much a mama's girl and is very attached to me but she's not terribly social with others. She's perfectly friendly but doesn't like to be held unless it's on her terms. When we visit my parents, they try to hold her and cuddle her and she just squirms and kicks until she gets free. She's also very naughty. Lots of attention seeking behavior.
Lucy is a love and so was Hoover. Much more into cuddling and being held and giving kisses, etc. Nell is the only black I've ever had so I don't have a large sample size to compare but she's a pistol!
Cindi, I just had to tell you - my cousin's pug is named Bobbie Jean (BJ for short), but she's a black pug! We started calling her BJ right off the bat cos the name fit so well!Originally Posted by Two Crazy Pugs

A study done in the NFL about penalty's showed that the Oakland Raiders (the only team with black uniforms) received more penalty's then any other team. Upon study of the film it was found that the number of real offenses were equal but the refs were more likely to call penalties on the team in black. And didn't the Man In Black (Johny Cash for you silly youngsters who think I was speaking of Will Smith) spend some time in prison while Willy Nelson always managed to get of lightly for his many offenses?
That said I think there is a different dynamic in play here. The extra sunlight captured by the coats of our black puggys causes them to be a little more brain addled. They are bad to the bone.
