Reason why is, the pug who lives upstairs, Sawyer, usually watches us take out our bikes and we ALWAYS go up to him bc he's so darn cute. So he knows us but he's never been particularly jumpy and excited with us. Today, we were taking out the bikes and Sawyer watched us but when we started talking to him he lowered his head and tail and raised his haunches a bit. He was VERY subordinate and looked nervous. He was shaking a bit too but it was cold. Anyway, we saw him until he relaxed and then his owner whistled for him to go in. I want to know if pugs are sensitive.. I hear the man upstairs yelling a lot and it was the man who let him out. When the woman lets him outside she talks to us. Weird. I don't want Sawyer to be in a bad home.
Emma LOVES people. She is such an attention *****. And if she isn't getting attention she goes looking for trouble. Usually her type of trouble is finding stuff on the ground to eat or chewing herself raw.
Emma is very sensitive to my emotions. If I am angry, she shuts down and doesn't listen. I don't even have to be angry with her; she'll shut down. She is very smart, I do love her dearly, but if given the chance, I will NOT get another pug. The noises, their attitude. I don't like it. I won't even get another dog that weighs less than 30lbs.
She's overly friendly and VERY dependent on us. I like dogs who are so-so with strangers and can deal with having a little quiet time that doesn't involve them getting attention.
