You want a pug. You’ve wanted one for years. You hopefully have done some research and think this is the breed for you.
Here’s what it’s really like to live with a pug, illustrated by the one and only Gemma Gené who draws about her pug Mochi. It’s hilarious and adorable, yet it captures the essence.
Check it out below! …and if you already live with a pug (or pugs), see if you can relate! LOL
#1: They want to be with you. ALL THE TIME.
Have you ever heard parents with kids say that they never get to go to the bathroom by themselves anymore? Well, it’s pretty much the same thing with a pug!
They tend to be pretty attached, and will follow you around the house everywhere you go. They will be at your feet when you’re at your standing desk, curled up in your lap when you’re on the couch, and sitting a foot behind you when you’re at your computer desk!
If you want a dog that stays off the furniture or sleeps on the floor rather than your bed, you may have a bit of a challenge with a pug. And you may have to deal with a good amount of separation anxiety.
If you’re cool with a dog that thinks he’s attached to you with velcro… then a pug is a good breed for you!
