I have discovered this forum in the process of googling "pugalier puppies for sale". Eeek I have learned so much! I had no idea these puppy mills even existed! Obvioulsy now I am re-evaluating my puppy plans but am a bit lost as what to do next.
We lost our beaustiful labrador Bella this month after 10 years in our family She was very much a member of the family and my 2 year old is devestated. I am in no way looking at replacing her as it would simply be not possible to do so. In fact our circumstances have changed drastically since so another labador would not be suitable anyway.
So my question is can anyone suggest any breeds that would be suitable and if so can you recommend reputable breeders? I live in northern NSW so as close as possible would be best.
A bit about our circumstances and "wants" for lack of a better word:
I am a stay at home mum so there will usually be someone home all the time.
We would prefer a smaller dog suitable to be indoors much of the time.
We live in a duplex with a small, well secured back yard.
I have a 2 year old so must be good with kids, somewhat robust (lol) but gentle.
I love the look of the pug x cavalier.
More than happy to adopt/rescue but have no idea how to go about this or if there is a possibility of this locally.
My husband and I love pugs - how common and what are the health probs associaited with them and would they be suitable.
Any help would be greatly appreciated and please forgive my lack of knowledge in this area. Please be assured we LOVE any animals that we bring into our home and do our best to do everything we can to keep them happy and healthy
