    Out of pure curiosity, what attracts you to a dog that is Pug x JR? Why not a Pug or a JR... or even any other cross breed?

    Asharee, while I appreciate your need for companionship, the majority of people here won't be squealing with joy to learn of your new puppy. Unfortunately your friend is what is known as a back yard breeder. When you get your puppy please be aware that it MAY have one or many genetic health problems (this can and does happen with cross breeds as hybrid vigour does not apply when it comes to canine genetics). You might also get lucky and have a healthy pup. It would help you a lot to know about these, I don't know much about pugs or jack russells but I did find a couple of links to help you out:

    Pug Genetic Issues | Pug Village - Pugs Pictures, Information & Forum

    Identifying Health Problems Common to Jack Russell Terriers - For Dummies

    Knowing about these potential problems may help you as your pug cross grows older. (I do apologise but I cannot stand the cutesy BYB/designer dog names and refuse to use them on principle.)

    I mean no offence, but your friend isn't a proper breeder. A proper breeder is registered with the ANKC (you cannot do this if you are cross breeding), runs extensive health testing (not just vet checks) on every dog they own, shows their dogs or has working dogs they are breeding from to ensure that only the best of the best pass their genetics on and will ALWAYS put the health and well being of their dogs first. There is a lot more to breeding amazing dogs than just throwing a boy & girl together and letting nature take its course.

    Honestly, you may as well have found a crossbred litter being given away in the paper, that is effectively all your little one is. Please do some research on BYB's and learn more about them.

    Your puppy is very cute and I do hope that you have many years of happiness with him, but honestly seeing all of the puppies in the pounds crying out for homes breaks my heart. Particularly when most of the puppies are around the 6-12 month age which is when people who've bought or been given puppies tend to give up on them and dump them. People like your friend are directly creating more problems for the rescue groups and the pounds because unlike registered breeders they don't take care of the puppy purchasers, they don't provide support and help and 99% of the time they will not take back a puppy of theirs to rehome it if something goes wrong for the owner.

    I hope that you don't take offence to what I've written and I hope that you do some of your own research as well to learn more about what I've said. I do wish you the happiest of futures with your puppy and I hope you both enjoy many long years together. Good luck!

    Looks like they were just born.. I don't see a problem with using a cardboard box as long as there was enough room for the bitch to move around in it and get comfortable. It's actually a good idea, as it can all be thrown away after the birth.

    yeah she was still birthing. she isn't a BYB. shes a private breeder, there probably isn't much difference but she LOVES them to death. all of the gods i've ever owned have been x breeds. i've already got a huge lecture so please no more. lol

    Can you explain to me what a 'private breeder is please'?

    I wasn't meaning to lecture you - I have rescued crossbred dogs myself, that isn't what I have issue with

    Sorry, she's still a BYB. I don't care how you try to dress it up with different titles. Good luck with your pup & I hope your friendship with the "private breeder" lasts - I've watched others fail...

    Seriously, good luck.

    BTW There is no such thing as a "Jug" and to call your dog one is an insult to the dogs who created it, and to your dog. They are breeds in their own right and deserve to be recognised as such.
