My partner and I have been thinking about getting a dog for almost 6 months now, and after doing some research we've decided we'd like a pug cross puppy, preferably black. We've been looking at black jack russell x pug AND beagle x pug puppies. I've been doing some research on chevromist and ACA Kennels, and they've both been exposed as fronts for puppy farms.
I know we can find breeders for purebred pug puppies, but how can we find a safe pug cross breeder, preferably in Victoria. We've been scouring the internet, with not much luck - and anyone I come across I'm automatically suspicious they're a front for puppy farms.
We're not sure where to go next, and I'm wondering if anyone can shed some light on this?
