Social network for pugs and their people.
If you want to give it a go with him - I would not let your two be together too much in the beginning - slowely introduce them. We are a great wealth of information here if you want to describe more how they aren't getting along. When I had a new pug, I gave it 3 weeks to adjust to each other and I don't leave them alone together or sleep together. I correct right away any evil eye towards each other. Taking them on pack activities such as a dog park or a walk also helps.
Contact www.midatlanticpugrescue.org. You can surrender the puggie there and they will foster and rehome him. I am part of Ohio Pug Rescue and it is a nice alternative to a shelter. If they can't take him then let me know and I will help you find another rescue group. Too bad you don't live closer to Ohio - we would foster him!
Pugs are great social beings and I am sure your pugs will get along like a house on fire in no time. My Tin Tin (pug) and Rusty (lab) are inseparable and I'd be committing the most henious crime if I separated them. If you hang in there, you'll realise that this is true for your puggies as well. An animal shelter is no place for any dog, let alone a pug. Please, I beg of you to drop that option - for the love of your female pug, if not for the love of pugs at large.
I had a look at the picture of the two on the couch. I don't see any reason for the two to not because best of friends eventually. Pugs love to cuddle up with other pugs or anything for that matter. At least thats how my pugs have been. :)
Good luck with your little guy and girl!
Please try and find the guy a good home and go to animal shelter as a last resort. You know I got a rescue chi/po cross and she just hated my other dogs for the first few months. I was scarred to leave them alone together. But now all three dogs plus my business partners pug and peakanese all get alone great and sleep cuddled up together. I find that the animals will work it out. Sometimes for whatever reason it just doesn't work out, but most of the time they all get along eventually. When I brought my new pug puppy home in July she would play with the other two dogs, but they didn't like the playing at first (senior dogs now). But now they play like crazy and no one got hurt. I would give your two pugs some more time. There are probably things you can do to help the process along, hopefully other members will be able to give you some ideas.
