As my vet says, they have teeth, so they can bite.

All breeds have the potential to bite. And All puppies will, without a doubt bite.
It depends on how well you train and socialize a dog. You have to train with positive methods, and never hit a dog.

Of course. There's no such thing as a breed that won't bite.

lol i think that any dog has the potential to bite,

pick a good breeder and get a puppy from parents of good temperament and you should be fine

Yes, they bite and so do pekes!

The peke, pugs, and such dogs alike tend to have the "little dog syndrom". I have truely never known one NOT to have this problem. Sometimes it doesnt show for awhile, but eventually, it comes out.

I own 5 bulldogs and 2 pekes. The bulldogs are run by the pekes and my children have suffered black eyes and wounded lips from the pekes over the years, even before aquiring the bulldogs!

The pug owners I know claim to have the SAME problems!

I know breeding quality has something to do with it as with any breed, but IME, these two breeds are notorious for this!

I did own a pug, a black pug, and, with the exception of puppyhood he never bit or attempted to bite anyone. (In puppyhood, it was playbiting, and I don't recall much about it....just know that all puppies playbite, so I'm sure he did). He was extremely mellow and good-natured. Based only on him, I would say they are the most laid-back dogs in the world.

However, a good friend of mine had a fawn pug, and she could not be trusted with children. She was a little nervous around them and could not be trusted not to bite. Of course, when she was younger, her own family's children played very roughly with her, so I don't know if that probably had something to do with it.


The differences probably were in how they were treated when young? I've wondered if the genes that carry color also carry some temperament traits. (I've never met a red/orange cat that wasn't a complete spaz...meant in a good way, I have an orange cat!!)

Every single dog on this planet is capable of biting a human, unless they don't have teeth. It's how you train them, that's what determines whether they'll bite you or not.

Don't train him, and he'll bite!
