The last bigger pros is, that Pugs are easy to groom. They really dont need a lot of grooming and bathing, only when necessary. Of course, you need to take care of their ears, eyes and nails, but again, only if it is needed.
Now lets talk about the cons. There are two big disadvantages of owning a pug. The first one is a little bit sad, because it is about their health. Pugs are prone to many diseases and especially to infections. It is because of their face. Their bulgy eyes are prone to eye infection, their short nose is prone to respiratory problems. Be prepared to pay a lot of money for veterinary bills, when you get a Pug.
Another big disadvantage is, that Pugs are heavy shedders. It does not look like it, on the first sight, but Pugs are double coated dogs who shed all the time. Anything a pug touches practically turns into a pug, because it is covered by their fur.
As i said, they are very attached with humans, which is cute, but it can quickly turns into a con. They will go anywhere where you go. To the kitchen, to the television, to the bathroom, everywhere.
