i was wondering which breed would be better as a house pet: a mini schnauzer or pug?
It would look shaggy, dirty and be very matted if it does not get groomed on a regular basis (every 4-6 weeks, and combed daily)
If you don't have the time to comb at home and do not want to spend between $30-$40 once a month for grooming, then a Schnauzer is not for you.
Pugs are easy maintenece..you can put them in the kitchen sink and wash them in about 10 minutes. Keep the nails clipped once a month and clean their ears, Brush them out now and then to keep shedding down and they are good to go.
