    Default Pug Breeder

    Hi, a while ago I met a cute little pug at a dog park. The owner said he got the pug from a breeder called 'tempress' or somthing similar. I can't seem to find them, anyone heard of them or know how I could find them. I tried dogzonline. I think the were in qld or nsw

    Not all breeders list themselves online. If you meet up with the same person in the dog park again, ask them for contact details for the breeder.

    If you can't find that person again, you could try contacting the Pug Club of NSW who may be able identify the breeder and give you contact details.

    Also (puts flame suit on) although I am manic about my love for pugs and could never be without one or two or three, they are not a breed suitable for every lifestyle. Yes they are cute, but never let the cuteness factor be your prime reason for choosing a breed. Please read up on them, do a little research so that you understand the bad points of the breed as well as the good points. If, forearmed with information about constant shedding of prickly hair, snorting and sneezing and snoring, swallowing everything in sight, potential heat intolerance and difficulty in house-training, you are still convinced that this the breed for you, then go ahead and start contacting breeders. If getting a pug was not your prime reason for wanting to contact the breeder, please ignore me!

    Thanks, the pug is not for me. My friend owned a pug but sadly she passed away a few months ago. My friend has considered getting another pug but was also considering a pug cross cavalier. I am really trying to get her to understand that cross breeds are probably not the best, I tried to get her to look into a rescue but she wants a pug or pug x. since getting my dog (a x from a byb) I have learnt a lot & will be rescuing my next dog. I'm not that educated about byb, breeds etc so I'm not sure if the reason she wants a x is to maybe help with some of the issues pugs have. I am sure though that the pug I met at the park was bred from pugs with not so squashed faces to help with their respiatory issues (if that makes sense)

    What you've said makes sense, but the idea itself doesn't. There is more to the brachy issue than simply elongating the muzzle a little.

    I'm really not sure or educated on pugs. they're not a dog I would choose for me but I was/am just trying to help my friend out with looking for a pug & a reputable place to buy one from. I know she found a place that I believe was a puppy farm since it stated on their website they had 18 different x breeds or somthing. I just want her to buy from someone reputable. Her last pug was from a petshop & although it could most likely happen to other pugs she was sick from the day they got her. By the time she was 3 she was deaf & blind & passed away before she turned 4. She was actually going to have surgery on her palet or whatever the problem was. I was hoping that buy buying from a breeder these problems might not be as severe even though I understand pugs have lots of issues. Again, I'm not educated in pugs or any dogs at all for that matter. I just didn't want her to go through a puppy farm or think just because it's a x it will be healthy etc.
