    Anyways thanks for your feedback
    just because i want a certain dog, does not mean im supporting puppy farms so thanks for the hammering when asking a simple question on a FORUM
    Of course you do not intend to support puppy farms (I hope). You just need to understand that generally cross breed's (or designer dogs if you want to jazz up the name) like this come from puppy farms. Why not get a pure bred dog from a reputable breeder, at least you know what you are getting.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    People have opinions and voice them Melvis. Some think they are ugly, some don't, some people are bigoted, some not. It's the same on every dog forum.

    Fact is designer pet dogs are here to stay, it is a fact with in the X breed as well as purebreed world, demand by the consumer dictates it, some people cash in on it as a commodity and these are the people who put money before the dog, not just designer breeders do this, that is not to say you may end up with a wonderful pet by demand, many people do.

    Best of luck

    Nine times out of 10, pugalier and other such breeds come from puppy farms. Of course there are some good and ethical breeders that do breed them, but these are few and far between. No one is saying you support puppy farms (the post under yours said a puppy farm had them- hence the comments re puppy farms), rather to just do your homework, suss out the breeders and meet the parents of the puppy you wish to purchase.

    No one here is likely to know any breeders because no one really supports breeding the breed (especially since they can't come from registered purebreed breeders that do genetic testing on their dogs). I think you'd be far better off rescuing one from a pound or shelter =)

    Sorry but you're asking about a crossbreed that is known to be almost exclusively available from puppy mills AND you want the pup in less than a month? Surely we could be forgiven for interpreting that as "don't mind if it comes from a puppy mill".

    I own a crossbreed. She has more than two breeds in her too, I reckon. She was a rescue dog.

    And I actually have nothing against the breeding of so called "designer breeds". Unfortunately the breeding of these dogs isn't regulated as with the purebreds. Which is why so many are bred at puppy farms.

    But if you would be able to find an ethical breeder - and there must be some out there you would hope - it is very unlikely that you'd be able to get a pup at such short notice. The only place where you can buy a pup on demand like that is at puppy farms. Or pet shops but those dogs usually come from puppy farms too.

    I agree with Beau that the demand is here to stay. And it would therefor be much better to regulate the breeding of these crossbreeds in some way, so people who really want a dog like that can have a choice.

    Any breeder who gives you a puppy on this short a notice, will not be a responsible one.

    Good luck with finding the puppy you want - I personally think any pug mix is gorgeous (my friend has a pug x griffon and she is adorable and even came from health checked parents).

    Just make sure you look into what you could be getting into. Research the genetic defects that each breed is prone to and then ask the breeder whether the parents have been tested. Check the environment the pups come from (obviously a nice grassy yard or similar is going to be a nicer environment than a metre square cage) and make sure the parents are happy and healthy.

    If the breeder doesn't meet any of those, then back off quickly and keep looking.

    Alternatively, if you are desperate for a new addition before Christmas (I am assuming this is a gift for children???) then try shelters...lots of those cute little xbreeds available...though you will probably find more varity right after Christmas so maybe hold off til then.

    Good luck!

    Just thought I would post up a few rescue options that are currently seeking homes in NSW

    Pugalier - Cody's profile at PetRescue - is he your new best friend?

    Cavalier King Charles - Animal Details

    Pug x Chihuahua - Animal Details

    Pug x (possibly a pugalier) - Mavrik's profile at PetRescue - is he your new best friend?

    Pug x Jack Russel - Cody's profile at PetRescue - is he your new best friend?
    Owning a dog should be a partnership. Much like a good marriage it should be based on love, trust and devotion until death do you part.

    8 weeks from now is the end of January? And a good breeder will have a waiting list and will only have a litter every few months at most.

    I can recommend the rescue dog option. It's harder to find a small pup, but I can also recommend getting a slightly older pup, which is what I did. Best dog in the world!
