Hi, I need some help in deciding if a pug is right for my life or not. I've been researching the breed and a pug seemed perfect for my fiancee and I. We're moving into a small condo and we have a 3 year old cat (she's very playful and she's lived with my fiancee's parent's dog for almost 2 years. The dog's old so she doesn't play but it's very apparent that our cat just wants to play with the dog. So I think she'd get along with a little playful pug.) So from what I've read about them, they'd be the perfect breed. But then I read a little something that said that they NEED people around at all times. My fiancee and I both work Mon-Fri. 9-5. What do other dog loving people do when they work normal 9-5 hours? Is it adviseable not to get a dog or are there breeds to consider that don't freak out when being left alone, or maybe other options?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
