Anonymous asked:
I have been looking through face book, on line, and through friends, for a pug for my child. But I don't just want any pug, I want a healthy well bred one. What standards do breeders have to meet for akc certification? Should they have to reveal legal paper work representing sire, Dam and vet health certificate before selling the dog? What do you ask a breeder when purchasing across state lines or internet in order to protect yourself from scamming?

The AKC Is basically a paper mill, they do not check or verify anything. Ask your breeder for a list of customers. Call some randomly to see what you can find out.

The AKC only has two coloration's registered for the Pug breed, fawn and black. However a Pug can be brindle and be registered with the AKC, but it will be disqualified from the show ring due to its coat coloration.

What is a mini Pug?

There is no such thing as a Miniature Pug. Pugs are a purebred dog and there is no other size for them. However, a breeder could breed the smallest of their stock to keep their adult dogs on the smaller side of the scale for this breed and call them Mini. But there is no actual breed that is called a Miniature Pug.

Can a pug mix be sold for $900 with papers?

No mix breed dog will have papers. If the person is advertising the dogs as mixed with paper's, that is wrong as there is no registry for mixed breed dogs.

Anonymous

Actually there is a mixed breed registry, like a designer dog registry, and ckc will register mixed breeds too.

Anonymous

CKC is a paper registry for 2 dogs with different breeds. The registry will even tell you what breed to call it.

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.
