Louie is a gorgeous Pug. He is smaller (about 25 lbs), has a great shape, and color. Louie is a very playful boy, loves tug-of-war, and like all pugs, is the consummate clown. He loves attention and has the best disposition. Louie is a very social, non-aggressive fella, and gets along great with other dogs, we lucked out when we got Louie.
