On a negative note, if you hate a sleeping companion who snores, then you may want to think about having a different breed. Many Pugs enjoy a good snore during their slumber time, though there are some exceptions. However, on a positive note, if you don't appreciate doggy odors around your home, then the Pug may be a good choice. If kept clean, Pugs are usually virtually free from such smells.
As for grooming, you probably like to look your best, though perhaps you feel you were not exactly cut out to be a hairstylist. Not to worry, the Pugs coat doesn't demand much attention, at least not in comparison with his abundantly coated Chinese cousin, the Pekingese. Pugs do shed all year round. While regular brushing will remove dead hairs, Pug owners still should be prepared to find little clouds around the house, on clothes and on furniture. This is normal, but excessive shedding likely indicates a problem that you should discuss with your veterinarian.
And finally, I'm not suggesting that you are greedy, but if you have a healthy appetite, you will have something else in common with your Pug! Most Pugs really enjoy their food and thus are prone to putting on too much weight. This means that you will need to take fairly strict control of his diet but, when all is said and done, its usually easier to start a diet and exercise plan when your companion is on one, too!
