I have a small pug puppy, and I can't decide if I should just get her spayed at 6 months or let her have one litter when she is about 2 or 3. I would like to know what goes into breeding pugs. Liken will she need a c-section will she be to small to breed?
There are a few breeders on here who will be able to give you advice, but in the meantime, I would urge you to strongly consider the reasons why you would want to breed your pug. In my opinion, there are plenty of reasons NOT to do it and only one "good" reason -that is, if you have a show quality pug with good lines and want to do it for the betterment of the pug breed.
I am willing to spend all the money it take to make sure she is healthy and will not pass on disease to her puppies. What I really want to know is how will it affect her having a litter? Everything I ready is about the puppies but I would like to know about the mom because she is my first priority if breeding her is cruel to her any way I won't breed her
Breeding is always a risk......The big one being you can lose the mom at any time! During pregnancy....during delivery.....or after! Keeping a girl unspayed is also a risk due to pyo!
You can breed her and lose all the puppies!
I am a breeder.....I show. I HATE breeding and am a nervous wreck EVERY heat....EVERY breeding!!!!
When I sell a puppy as a pet, it must be spayed or neutered! I do not believe in people breeding just to bred. The only reason, in my mind, to breed....is to improve the breed! In doing so...it can also get expensive as stud fees for good stud dogs range from $800-2000!
To me, there are enough dogs for everyone to go around ....in every litter there is usually at least 1 pet! Some of my dogs that are show quality go to pet homes as I'd rather have them loved and in their owners beds rather than some show homes! I keep what I can show! Someone gets a really nice quality pet! There are also wonderful pugs in rescue..........and there are cute mutts at the pound.
Our rescue took in a pregnant girl with 2 males. She had a nice litter of 6 pups...1 cleft! It doesn't happen very often that a rescue has pups this young...but it happens! They will be spayed/neutered at 16 weeks and be able to go to their new homes!
Please heed all the good advice you have been given and don't risk your girl.You have no quarantees that the pups will have her temperment.If a breeder of show pugs is telling you she's a nervous wreck, think of how you'll feel.I'm a wreck somedays just trying to get enough water in Tinker to prevent stones, I can't even imagine weeks of nonstop worry!
Her amazing personality and temperament are what makes a pug a pug, inherent in ALL pugs, not just your girl. There is not one pug owner here that wouldn't say exactly the same thing about THEIR pugs, including me. People who breed for reasons like you've stated are not well-received by responsible dog-owners, especially those committed to rescue and the spaying and neuturing of all pets. Leave the breeding to people who put the reasearch, time, money and effort into exhibiting their dogs and ensuring any matings are done to further the breed and breed out any faults. Consider the THOUSANDS of pugs waiting for homes in rescues around the country and where they came from - the overwhelming majority were bred by people with your mindset or in the most disgusting places for animals on earth - puppy mills. Spay your girl and love her as the pet she is. Not a breeding machine to satisfy YOUR needs.
