Maybe you should start attending local conformation event and talking to the people showing their dogs.
It might give you a better idea of breeds you may be interested in, help you choose a breeder, and also see what it actually takes to show a dog.
How bizzare. Maybe its regional. Id put pugs right up there with labs energywise. And ive known dozens of pugs. Only one was mild and it was an elderly puppy mill rescue
I think there can be a pretty wide spectrum in energy levels with pugs.
But from what i have personally expereinced, although they are active and playful dogs, they really want to be with people. My parents pugs sleep most of the day all curled up together and the only regular exercise they get is playing with each other. My Roxy was always game for anything be it a long walk, or a lazy day watching tv!
My sister has a hyper pug, but he has absolutely no training and he is cooped up all day, far longer than any dog should be.
