    Hello, thanks for your article. Having had a few pugs I can attest to their absolutely lovely nature, they were wonderful around my kids, and perfect in smallish spaces. The only thing I would add about the pug though is that they drop so much hair!!! I had no idea. But their beautiful natures well and truly compensate for that.
    I would love to have a Brussels Griffin as our next pet. We live in an apartment, do you this breed of dog would be appropriate? Thanks

      This is a happy and high spirited that sometimes they can even harm themselves because of a lot of falls, they love other pets in the family.About its hairy coat surprisingly it looks rough but not shed as much but would require regular trimming.

      Thank you for stopping by!
      Take care Mercy

    I love dogs and we surely have one back home, a Shih Tzu, but I didn’t really get the chance to check out other dog breeds, great and interesting post. Once I get to settle, I might pick a Poodle along with our Shih Tzu, both cute little babies! I love kids as well so having a dog okay to be around with children is awesome.

    Good job!

      Thank you King Kong Girls, I welcome you back here when you buy the poodle we would like to hear your experience and probably you might give us more on Poodle’s characters.
      Thank you

      Take care Mercy

    I don’t have a dog. But I do want to get one in the future. I always get dog breeds all mixed up. Thank you for explaining the different breeds. Now I have a better understanding of them.
