      We have a Pug & Lab Molly, & they get along great! I really think it depends on the individual dogs, & how they relate to each other! Our previous Pug, Rugby, & Lab Molly did not get along, but it wasn't due to Molly. Both were females, but Rugby was a couple years old when we got Molly as a puppy. Rugby was very much into the "humping thing." Once Molly grew up, although always patient & kind, she wasn't having THAT! It seemed like a dominating thing that Rugby was doing. We kept them separated by a short "kitchen fence" which Molly could easily have stepped over if she wanted to, but didn't! A few times I let them be together, hoping they would play, but it always turned into Rugby trying to hump Molly & though Molly was patient for a short time, she would then give Rugby a warning that it was time to knock it off, which only made Rugby more excited & insistant & then she would start lunging & growling at Molly....then it would have been "on" if I hadn't been there to hold them apart. They liked each other & go along fine in the motor home & never needed to be separated there.

      But in the house the "kitchen fence" seemed to keep the peace. When Rugby passed away at age 13, we adopted a little 4 yr old female Pug that had been used for breeding.


      assuming the same thing would happen
      we & kept the "kitchen fence" in place. Every day, when I got home from work, I found little Heidi in the kitchen with Molly, both looking happy as clams! At first I couldn't figure out how Heidi was getting in there. unless she was climbing over the little fence or something, but then I finally found a loose screw where we had the fence screwed into the wall, & she could just manage to force her way through there. These 2 get along great! Down came the kitchen fence & we haven't had to bother with it since! I don't know if it was because Heidi was used for breeding, or if just being in a household full of other dogs helped her have a better way of relating, but I'm so thankful they get along so well! Good luck & please let us know how it goes!

      Molly here! An' da Pugz makes a good pillow!

      I have 2 labs, a 20 pound corgi, a 4 pound Chihuahua and recently just got a Pomeranian puppy. I have never had an issue from my labs with the smaller dogs, actually my labs prefer smaller breeds. When I used to take my older black lab to daycare when she was younger, she went in the small dog room, the bigger dogs intimidated her

      Thank you so much for the reply and sorry I am just seeing this now as we have a new little member of the family. We weren't planning on it but happen the other night and she is a pug/sharpei mix. So it was great just reading your post right now and your experiences with a Lab and a Pug. I had my heart set on a yorkie or yorkie mix but I just was too afraid to go that small. Anyway, they are doing ok so far, our Lab is not thrilled so far but I think I am seeing potential as our little pup was trying to sit next to our Lab very nicely, though our Lab wasn't haven't it. Fingers cross I ll be able to post a picture like yours which is so adorable in the near future. Thank you again for your reply.
