    Really!? This Pugalier is my neighbours. Her names Roxy. I think she's cute! Maybe she's a one off


    I am in no way encouraging the breeding or buying of Pugaliers
    Education not Legislation

    Anne no-one encourages people to look for DD'S,quite the opposite in fact.
    Butthe fact is many,many people do have them and still need a forum where they are not going stripped,quartered and hung for saying so.
    And no matterthe reason for dogs needing to be rehomed,they have to be advertised somewhere , so why not here? It also gives a chance to perhaps even rectify a problem that is defining the the dogs need to go.
    Hope you areenjoying your holiday by thway,lucky bugger

    I think the advice given was reasonable by others, I personally found the "I dont want..." line offensive by the op.

    You are probably right, she will go and get exactly what she wants from a petshop as she had no intention of listening to another view.

    I too am sick and tired of seeing dogs advertised here people no longer want. I am also sick and tired people asking how to breed their dogs, or trying to find another dog they can use to mate with.

    I dont come here very often anymore as i find it terribly frustrating.

    The issue of unwanted companion animals is nothing short of an epidemic in this counrty. And while they continue to have their precious lives snuffed out people like the op choose to knowingly support a breeding industry that is inhumane and greatly contributing to the problem.

    I see these dogs dragged while they are sitting on their bums into the euth room. They are healthy, happy, rehomable pets, it makes me sick.

    I have probably just had enough which is probably seen in my posts and my time is better spent doing other things.

    But Billy isn't it all about education ?
    The over load of pound dogs is certianly not going to improve if we dont even try to gently educate.

    Who are knowingly farmed and bred in hideous conditions and bred only for profit.

    All of those who support this practise regardless of the breed and how selfish you are put your hands up!
    But how do you they do know all ofthis ?
    It's a bluddy good chance that they dont and so as luck would have it they come here where we have a chance to educate.

    I certainly don't want a name change.
    All dogs of all breeds should be treated exactly the same,once they are actualy born there is little someone can do now is there?
    So again,we have the chance to help and educate

    This forum is for Cross Breeds as well as Pure breeds.

    That's funny, coming from the owner of possibly the worlds funniest looking dog.

    I'm going to have to post a picture of my girl on here to prove you wrong.

    And yes most breeds started with cross breeding, but with genuine function in mind, not money making. Plus the culling required with the original crossbreeding to create a new breed is not something we really find acceptable these days.

    But I'm glad you're happy with your choice and I hope you have many years pleasure with your pup.

    Personally I think that anything crossed with a Jack Russell is as mad as a hatter!

    Nattylou, can you explain what you mean by 'culling of the original crossbreeding'.

    When most breeds were originally developed it was for a purpose. Dogs were bred to herd, hunt, retrieve, kill vermin etc. In order to achieve the ideal dog breeders culled (killed) quite ruthlessly. Two hundred years ago there wasn't the option of desexing and rehoming unsuitable dogs so they were killed instead. If a dog was not healthy and could not do the job of work it was bred for it did not live long enough to reproduce.

    For example when the English Parson John (Jack) Russell set out to create the ultimate sporting terrier he probably culled more than 70% of the dogs he bred. Only the healthiest and best workers were allowed to live.

    We now live in gentler times. Science has given us the option of testing for many inherited defects and dogs unsuitable for breeding are no longer culled but desexed and sold as pets. Of course not all breeders are responsible. Many, particularly those who deal in designer crossbreeds, do no health testing at all. They breed simply to supply a market for cutesy puppies.

    I'm not in favour of culling in this day and age but it was certainly a means of producing sound, healthy dogs capable of doing the job they were bred for.

    Hope this answers your question.
