Common questions a pug breeder should answer
If you are looking for a Pug puppy, know that you are getting a very dependent breed of dog. Due to their unnatural squashed faces, Pugs tend to have a lot of respiratory problems. Due to their wrinkled skin and flattened faces, they have trouble cleaning themselves. Due to their large eyes, they often injure their eyes. All Pug puppies are cute, but keep in mind that you are designing a dog, not designed by nature.
If you are still looking for a Pug puppy after considering all the Pug information, go to an American Kennel Club licensed breeder or a Pug breed rescue group. At least you will have the healthiest and healthiest version of this less natural dog possible. Since Pugs are so popular, you will likely find Pug breeders throughout most of the continental United States. But not all Pug breeders are the same.
The most important questions to ask a Pug breeder may sound a bit rude at first, but a good Pug breeder won’t mind being asked. You should ask if they send their puppies. The answer should be no. You should ask if there is a contract to sign. The answer should be yes. You should also ask for references from other people who have bought puppies from them in the past.
Never buy a Pug puppy without being seen. You should not only see the puppy, but also the puppy’s mother and the kennel in which the puppy was raised. A good Pug breeder rarely has puppies for sale, they only have a couple of litters a year, so you should be on a waiting list. A good Pug breeder will be more than happy to have visitors in his kennel or home (in most cases, Pugs are raised indoors and live in the same houses as their owners).
You should also ask the Pug breeder why they are breeding Pugs as they are such an unnatural breed. Hopefully, you’ll get responses from breeders hoping to promote healthier Long-nosed Pugs rather than one that wins ribbons and trophies. Along with their Persian cat faces, Pugs also have amazing personalities. It is possible that they were simply charmed more by the Pug’s company than its appearance.
They should also ask you lots of questions about your Pug information store and any past Pug experiences you may have. There should be a waiting period and a contract, which states very clearly for which medical conditions the Pug puppy is justified. The final word as to who gets which Pug puppy is from the Pug breeder, not yours. You should also ask if you can call for future training advice at no additional cost. Knowing all of this now, reconsider a puppy and adopt an adult Pug from your local animal shelter.
