Why are Pugs so expensive?

Unless you are a breeder, most people don't know how much work it takes to produce and raise a quality litter of puppies. Most reputable, responsible and qualified breeder's are not going to make a lot of money per litter. They are breeding for the betterment of the breed, not for money. The price of puppies will be based on the pedigree of the puppies, how much work the breeder has put into producing and raising the puppies and where the breeder lives. Pug's have an average of 3 - 5 puppies, and so the breeder must price the puppies to off-set the costs of producing and raising the litter of healthy, happy puppies.

Everyone I meet says my Pugs are fat. Recently I was told by a breeder that some pugs can get up to 20-25 lbs. My girls are 7 and 8 years old and are on a senior dog food. Are some pugs really larger? They have different parents.

The breed standard for a Pug is between 10 - 18 lbs. However, it is possible for a Pug to be larger, but it is not within the breed standard so some bad breeding has gone on to allow a Pug to grow to that size and be considered healthy. Pug's pack on weight very easily as they tend to not be exercised as much as other breeds. Like any dog, you should be able to feel the ribs of your dog without having to put pressure on the sides of the dog. If you have to put pressure to feel them, or can't feel them even then, then your dog is overweight. Senior dog food tends to have a lot of carbs in it. A grain-free dog food is for all life stages and is much healthier for your dogs. Your dogs will also lose weight if needed and maintain a good weight.

Pugs can get up to 35lbs. My male is 30lbs but is not fat and my female is 18lbs. It depends on the parents as we have had 8 pups and the largest male is 28lbs and stocky like his dad.

My parents are going through a complicated divorce and I really need someone that doesn't keep changing and that's why I want a puppy. A Pug would keep me company, give me a friend, a loved one that we can keep each other company but, I can't seem to convince my parents. Now that you know my story, do you have any idea or reasons that my parents could possibly say yes or at least rethink their decision?

Dogs are creatures of habit and so if your parents said yes and you were to move back and forth between the houses every week or two weeks -- then the dog could become very confused and develop behavioral problems. However, the Pug breed was developed as a companion dog and they can be good travelers. The main thing to consider is who will be paying for the dog, the vet fees, food and training. If you are not old enough to get a job of your own, it may be best to wait until you can at least help pay for an animal. It may be hard for one or both your parents to find a home that allows pets as well, so let some time pass and see where you and they stand when things have calmed down.

What is a reasonable price for a 16-month-old AKC male Pug?

This would all depend on the area in which the breeder lives, the pedigree of the dog, the training the dog has undergone and if the dog is going to be a pet or show dog. But on average, unless the dog is of impeccable breeding and going to be a show/breeding dog then the price should be about half to 3/4's of what their puppy purchase price is. Since the average price for a Pug puppy is about $1000.00, then $500.00 - $800.00 should be the range.
