Default Pugs

Well one of my daughter's is getting a Pug puppy in a wk or two (not sure when exactly). She says "how can a person come home from work and not look at a pug and smile or laugh?" I told her I'd puppy sit when I'm not working mainly to help her pottytrain the pup. This also helps expose Gracie to other dogs other than Princess.
So what do I need to know about Pug puppies? I read they dont do heat very well so I assume the time spent outside will be very little. Now that it's hot both Gracie and Princess have little interst in spending time outside during the day and door is now closed for the air to be on (that sucks) so it's no big deal. I just dont want to overdo our outdoor playtime with this puppy. How much walking does a Pug need? I'll have to read up on the personality because I know nothing about a Pug.
I should start a puppy daycare.

I think it is pugs as well, but I could be wrong. That they have 'innie bums'. Meaning that poo often gets stuck to their bum and it needs to be wiped. I think bulldogs are like this too.

The question I can answer about pugs that you list is the one about exercise. My sister in law has two pugs, and she says you have to be real careful exercising Pugs. They get overheated very easy. It has something to do with their shorten breathing passage. Playing ball in an air conditioned house is a good idea.

Here is a couple of links for FAQs
