Cautionary tale on adding a pug (or any pet) to your home!
The website Urban Pug (see below or list of links) has had several recent posts on considerations that should be taken into consideration when looking to add a pug to your home. Today was an excellent post on the pitfalls of looking for a "free" pet--pugs or any other. Anyone who follows the animal cop shows on Animal Planet knows of the horrors of puppy mills and animal horders. If you want an adjusted and healthy pet, you should inform yourself and be prepared for the cost of adding to your family. In the areas of behavior and health, it is wise to consider your pet in the same category as your children. IMO, unless you are prepared to provide basically the same nurture to your pets as to your human children--consider a stuffed animal instead.
