Mini Pugs

Which Is Better in General: PUG or MINI SCHNAUZER?

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011


A chinese pug is known for having $30,000+ Nose/nasal surgeries in the US.
A friend of mine had her pug brought in for the surgery around six years old.
The nose it too close to the face and they develop problems.

Mini Schnauzers bark too much and like a chihuahua, they can be territorial and unfriendly towards other people.

Consider buying a Corgie.
Welsh Corgie’s are great dogs.

Got Dog a Week Ago & Was Told It Was a Mini Dachsund but Has a Curly Tail. We Think Its a Combo With a Pug?

Would love to attach a picture but not sure how

Sounds about right - no dachshund has a curly tail, but pugs do.

Mini Schnauzers or Pug? Which Is Better?

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

I’m not sure which breed to get… Do they have different personalities?

Both dogs could be wonderful to have, but yes they have different personalities and have different pros and cons. I’ll give you some info on both of them:)

If you want a dog who…

* Is small, yet sturdy and blocky
* Has a short face with large expressive eyes
* Has a soft coat that’s easy to groom
* Is usually polite with everyone, including other pets
* Doesn’t need much exercise
* Seldom gets into real mischief — adults spend much of the day snoring

A Pug may be right for you.

If you don’t want to deal with…

* Snorting, snuffling, wheezing, snoring, some slobbering
* Gassiness (flatulence)
* Slowness to housebreak
* Constant shedding — every day
* Quite a few potential health problems due to his deformed face

A Pug may not be right for you.

If you want a dog who…

* Is large and strong, yet also lithe and elegant
* Has a wiry coat that doesn’t shed too much and a whiskery face with a wise expression
* Plays hard and thrives on vigorous athletic activities
* Looks imposing, so makes an effective deterrent and keen watchdog
* Is intelligent and versatile — when well-trained, can learn and do almost anything

A Giant Schnauzer may be right for you.
If you don’t want to deal with…

* Vigorous exercise requirements
* Rowdiness and exuberant jumping, especially when young
* Destructiveness when bored or not exercised enough
* Potential aggression or fearfulness in some lines, or when not socialized enough
* Potential aggression toward other animals
* Strong-willed mind of his own, requiring a confident owner who can take charge
* Regular clipping and trimming of the wiry coat

A Giant Schnauzer may not be right for you. Theres some info and good luck!:)

Is There a Such Thing as a "Miniature Pug" Puppy ?

Sunday, April 24th, 2011

My mom Loves Pugs, but she only likes them when they’re Puppies. Lol… People tell me I should just get us a Mini Pug, but is there even a such thing …? If so, Where do I find one?

Nope - Pugs come in one size. Anything advertised as "Miniature" or "Teacup" you should run away from. It just means it’s the runt of the litter and they use those words because it tends to sucker in gullible buyers.

Mini Usb From Camera..will It Plug Into My Laptop?

Will my mini usb cable pug into my laptop and download pictures

Well webcams are supposed to take/capture pictures and videos and save them to your computer. They are not used to download.

If you want to test your webcam, plug in the webcam. Allow the operating system to load the necessary driver. Open your Windows Movie Maker. Set the webcam as the input source. Capture a few clips and take snapshots.

Considering a German Shepherd for My First Dog?

Saturday, February 19th, 2011

I have owned dogs before with my family but I am looking for a dog for just me. I have been doing a lot of research and I like the GSD but I am afraid that he might be to much for a first time dog. I have also considered a boxer. What are yalls thoughts? I want a larger dog so no mini schnauzer or pug comments

German shepherds are great dogs.I know information states that they are not for a first time dog owner but I think that more applies to someone that has no experience of dogs at all.
I grew up with dogs including german shepherds so when it was time to choose a pup for my own family/home,I couldn’t think of a dog other than a german shepherd.
As with most of the other answers,Puppy training classes are a must not just for the pup but for you as an owner,also great fun and socialisation for your pup.
Be firm but gentle,German shepherds work well training in a positive way with lots of treats,they are not so good with harsher training methods.
They are eager and quick to learn,loyal,loving and excellent companions for children providing they have training,supervision with small children and lots of exercise.
They do shed badly and my GSD that I have now loses so much fur,I joke I could make another dog out of it every day.
I hoover and ten minutes later there is fur everywhere even places he hasn’t been.
Also be prepared to never feel fully dressed without GSD hair on your outfit.
Great dogs,buy from a reputable breeder,look at both parents and a good breeder will have the pups vet checked.
Enjoy your dog!

Giant Pug and Mini Pugs?

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

I saw these dogs at the park and there were a bunch of little pugs (tan bodies and black faces) and there was a giant one that must have been 6 times their size but with the same tan body and black face. He had the wrinkles and everything. did it just grow more then the others?

Mastiff maybe?

Possibly just a bad result of BYB and horrible genetics.

Pugs should be between 14-20 pounds. Not any smaller, and not any bigger.

Any larger than that and it’s a horrible example of a Pug.(That one is pretty large for a champion show dog anyway)

^^Thats a little closer to standard.

Do Dachsunds and Pugs Get Along?

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

my sister has a pug, she has had him for about 9 or 10 months. if she got a mini dachsund, would they get along??

Depends on the dogs. Dachshunds tend to be yippee, while pugs tend to be more laid back. It depends a lot on the dogs and how they are introduced.

I Have a Lab Puppy Right Now, Wanting to Get Another Smaller Dog, Not Sure What Would Be Good?

Sunday, October 10th, 2010

i have no preferance was looking at ethier a pug, mini daschund, or something like that…. just wondering what people would recomend toget along well with my lab?

I think labs get along with everybody and everything. That’s just my experience with the breed. They are however very rambunctious, especially the younger ones, so be careful about having a small, fragile dog around. Also make sure that you’re socializing your lab puppy as much as possible to ensure that he’ll be OK with a second dog, once that time comes.

http://www.dogbehaviour.com/articles/dogs/puppysocialisation.htm

When are you thinking about getting another puppy? It’s best to wait until your current pup is 2 years old before you get another one. Not only will two puppies tend to bond more with each other rather than with their owners, but it literally takes twice the amount of time to train two puppies, because you must work with them separately. Try to hold a double-training session, and well, they’d much rather wrestle than listen to you. If you train your lab well, by the time he’s 2 you will have a strong bond with him and he will also be a great role model for a new puppy — which HELPS with training.
