    Default Hello new here

    Hello Everyone!
    My wife and I were owned by a beautiful girl Agatha for 12 years. Lost her 3 years ago and now our hearts are finally ready to be adopted by another pug.
    We have looked at rescuing and are still considering that but also looking for a new pup at the same time.
    I do have one question? Aside from going to a show how in the heck do you find a truly good breeder? I don't really trust what I find online. Even researched one from the AKC site that seemed shady. What to do?

    Have you considered adopting? There are many Pugs in rescue in need of a good home.

    Hello Ijumpoveru,
    * I am also new here. In Spain it is not easy to find good breeders, and good ones do not have equal puppies available. So I followed the advice I found on this blog by a famous Mexican breeder. And so Gus came home. And we are delighted because he is gorgeous. He is a litter of private individuals. Are good advice to follow when we choose the puppy, whether it be a breeder or not. The article is in Spanish, but with the translator, I think it is understood. If not, in time, I'll translate it

    Hi. Welcome. Sorry about Agatha.It is definitely not easy to find good breeders. You are right not everyone on the internet is reliable. Why i got Sammy from a rescue. Asking around for any recommendations from family or friends would help. I hope you get one soon.

    Hi!

    After losing a treasured old one, you may find that a rescued one might be a good option for you, but I can understand if you're feeling that you want to start again with your own new puppy.

    The really important thing is to ensure that the parents of the puppy have both been fully health tested. I'm thinking of hemivertabrae, hip scored, patella, PKD, PDE etc to give the puppy the best chance of not inheriting a genetic condition. Here in the UK some of the better breeders are even doing further screening on the parents now for thyroid, liver, kidney and heart too.

    Next you want to ensure that the puppies have been reared in an environment where they've had close human contact, preferably in a home environment so they are used to the ambient scents and sounds.

    Puppies like this don't come cheap, and are only likely to be produced by breeders who are actively showing their dogs and wanting to do their best to improve the breed. Going to a few dog shows would certainly give you the best opportunity to meet a few breeders and see their dogs so you can make a more informed decision, otherwise it's down to studying their websites and making a few telephone interviews before making an appointment to visit them.

    So sorry for your loss, and wishing you all the best in finding a new love in your life
