Hi Pat thanks for the kind remarks about our Hektor. One thing I can guarantee is that what ever Pug you get, you will have the cuddliest dog on the Planet. Mine is very sweet towards most humans, not too sure about single men anywhere near his Mum, but that is his guarding instinct coming out, and I should not tell you this but he is king of the bad boys and girls club here. He was the most dominant dog in his litter and is utterly fearless, no sense unfortunately. He will take on any dog he takes a dislike to and does not matter the size, but he is in the minority I am glad to say. My previous two were completely different, but I always say it is because I named him for the Warrior Prince of Troy. Helena
Welcome to the Family Pat, and yes Pugs are very loyal to their owners, though not a guarding breed they still have all the instincts, are very loving and just love a cuddle. Mine is right up against me as I type, his normal place in the afternoon. He tends to spend the evening criticising the television or sleeping on his Dad's lap. They are great family dogs, love children but kid's should be taught to handle with care. I hope that you get your service dog soon, but please ask us any questions that you have, someone will be more than happy to help. Helena and Hektor
We had Emily for 20 months... she was great for helping me with depression. She died April 9, 2010 from Pug Dog encephalitis. It effected her nervous system and finally her legs and then her bowels. We loved her so much but she was suffering so we sent her gracefully to cross the Rainbow Bridge to wait for our trip to heaven.
"And now we have lost sweet Tin Tin, beloved by Puggirl. Pugs come into our lives to brighten them, and that is exactly what they do. Sweet Tin Tin, please find our puggies that have gone on before us and tell them we still remember…"
