Duke is an beautiful Pug. He is smaller in size (about 27 lbs), has a very nice build and is just a beautiful color. Duke is a playful, very cuddly dog, and like Jackson, and quite the little clown. He loves to touch you with his muzzle and has a wonderful disposition. Duke is very social, non-aggressive and gets along famously with not only our other dogs, but any dog he meets. We absolutely love Duke.
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.
