It is pretty much impossible not to fall in love with a pug. One look into those warm eyes and that mushy face is enough to make even the sternest canine-sceptics lose their minds. The kids are especially crazy about pugs and actually it often needs to be explained to them that these are living beings and not toys.
They may be somewhat difficult to housebreak and it may require some time, but it is more than worth it. These tiny cuties will provide you with endless joy and fun with their almost clownish disposition. At times, you feel like they live to make you smile, which is definitely something children enjoy.
In addition to this, pugs are extremely easy to groom and they are very good with other animals. They are perfect for families with limited space because they require very little exercise.
