I was thinking about pug, actually I have my heart set on a pug, but I hear they can have lots of expensive health problems-which could be a problem for us??? Also I live in Turkey, and it can very hot, although I do have air con. I just wondered what other breeds people could recommend for me; I have a nearly 3 year old daughter I live in an apartment I only go out for short periods, so I'm in most of the time, if not sometimes I would take the dog with me I would like a companion dog, one dog that is known to be super with small children, that doesn't bark much. Don't mind spending time grooming. Thanks for your help-please help.
