Is a pug a good dog for a family with little kids?

I really like pugs and want to get one if my parents will let me. I have two little brothers (6 and 4), and I don't know if a pug is a good family dog. If not, what kind is?

Pugs are calm but when they want to be active they will be. My friends have one and he's a snugglebug but when he's out in the yard he's doing laps! Pugs are great family pets because they're not aggressive and like I said, they are snugglebugs. You just have to be aware that they all have some minor breathing problems because of the shape of their noses so you can't hold them on their backs or they'll suffocate.

Pugs are great little dogs and are very good with kids. I have a Puggle, a cross between a Beagle and a Pug, she's very affectionate and was easily trained.

A mini poople is the best and kid friendly dog

poople? did you mean poodle? I don't mean to be rude or anything but poodles tend to be solitary dogs, and they don't really like to play

Pugs are sweet but very active put a cute dog for a family with little kids so I say if you watch over them really good it will be a pretty good dog :)

I think you should get a different type of dog!!! Personally I hate small dogs except for the Norwegian lundehund small dogs bark too much and if you have little brothers they may be too aggressive with it and possibly Hurt it

Pugs have A LOT of Heath issues and need some extra care I would see if Ou could go to a shelter and save a dogs life instead because that way your a hero to the dog
