    Like all dogs Pugs have their silly moments when they are young. I wouldn't exactly call it hyper but certainly mine would race round the house and garden killing toys and getting into mischief like any other dog.

    I used to take my pack of Pugs walking through the bush and they would follow rabbit trails as keenly as any hunting dog. However if they actually put up a rabbit they wouldn't chase it, simply continue following the scent trail. Not the brightest kids on the block.

    Pugs (particularly the blacks) can be mad, bad, naughty and active. Not hyper, just lots of fun.

    I wonder why the breeder my mum contacted told her that they were hyper :confused: He told her that they are on the go all the time and his hardly ever sleeps from the moment it wakes up in the morning it's running around all day :idea:

    Thanks Orchid.... I hope you have fun with your new pup :) Maybe it was just down to the breeder thinking it would be too much for my mum and dad coz of their age :wink5:

    A woman I work with has a Pug and he was insane when she brought him home. He was literally climbing the walls. He would run at the wall and see how far he could get up it before falling back.

    The problem was solved by changing his diet. He was on the absolutely awful Bakers :mad: His "breeder" had weaned him onto it. My work colleague did a lot of research into the breed but not into breeders. She didn't even see any health tests from parents. She didn't mention how quickly she was getting him. I just wish she had. I could have helped her find a proper breeder.

    Mabel was still quite little when she got her dog so we gave her some of Mabel's Burns puppy food. He completely changed personality in about 2 days. He is still as lively as anything and a lovely little dog but not uncontrolable.

    He even goes out running with her every morning. He may be a Pug but he thinks he's a labrador or something :D

    Mine are hyper! :D

    Well, they're not lazy like people think anyway. They are very busy dogs, have to be involved with everything and have their crazy moments when they really are hyper! :)

    I guess it all depends on how we interpret the word hyper. To me a dog who is hyper is one who is bouncing off the walls 24/7 and is somewhat unbalanced mentally. Imagine a young Border Collie for example living in a tiny flat with no mental stimulation, no exercise, no training. A dog like this would be hyper as I interpret the word out of sheer frustration and boredom.

    Certainly Pugs are not lazy as so many people think. I can still remember the look on my husband's face when I first said I wanted a Pug. He said he couldn't live with "one of those fat, snuffling little old ladies dogs!" That was many years ago. Two minutes after meeting our first little black girl Mary he changed his mind. Guess what his favourite breed of dog is now?

    Even my Vet was horrified when I first said I was getting a Pug. He also thought they were lazy, boring dogs with a multitude of health problems. My Pugs soon converted him. That particular Vet is retired now but last time I saw him 12 years ago he was very happy with his two mad, bad, entertaining Puggies.:D
