tqc, my apartment recently changed rules and I am now allowed to have a dog! (no breeds like pit bull, rottweiler or anything like that). I am considering getting a pug, since they are adorable and I have a good size studio apartment. I also have a 4 year old cat with IBS.. do you think it'd be best to get a young dog or a puppy so that he or she can grow up around my cat and there might be less of a risk for conflict?
also, if you have ever had a pug, what is their temperament usually like?
