Where do you live? Wiltshire Uk
How many pugs do you own? Two black pugs
What are their names? Lola & Charly
Is your current pug/s your first?
Lola is my first pug
Do you think your pugs personality matches yours?
Yes most definitely, I’m a crazy pug person
What did you expect a pug to be like before you got one?
Quite & happy to do nothing much!
What was different to your expectation once you got a pug?
Everything but I wouldn’t have it any other way! They’re such intelligent & intriguing little dogs. Very Quick to learn & always wanting to please. They’re my little shadows.
What would be your number 1 tip for new pug parents?
Don’t be tempted to keep giving treats especially as they look at you like “I’m really starving” here look. They don’t like being left on their own for long either.
What do you hate most about having a pug?
What do you love most about having a pug?
Their loving nature & clown like behaviour never fails to put a smile on my face or to laugh out loud!
What has been your biggest fear about owning a pug?
I don’t think I’ve any fear of own a pug but I’m always wary of illnesses they have because their whole personality changes. So I know something isn’t right.
Have you experienced any of the typical pug health problems? If so, how have you overcome them? If not, what precautions have you taken to prevent health problems?
Yes with eyes & teeth especially the eyes what a nightmare! Lola & Charly have their teeth cleaned every morning along with their nose creases. As for the eyes I try to not let them poke their heads into places they shouldn’t be. There is nothing worse than an injury on the eye.
The main precautions I’ve taken with Lola & Charly is to keep their weight down, it makes life easier on them with their breathing, which we all know can be a massive issue with pugs. They still have their treats but it’s counter acted with their meals. Win win & they know no different.
Why did you choose to start a social media account for your pugs?
By chance really, but I’m so glad I did, I’ve made some wonderful friends all over the world & the pug community is so strong, we help each other out with advice & lend support when need.
