    Default Wondering if my little Mac is Purebred?

    I couldn't possible love Mac any more than I already do, but recently we went to a vet who asked if he was pure. Apparently, he thought he looks "very" purebred. Based on the AKC standard, I wasn't sure if he was. Just curious what you guys think?

    he sure looks pure bred to me. I'm no expert but have had pugs for years and Mac looks the part.

    Stupid vet for upsetting you, Mac certainly looks purebred. And will be your constant shadow and best friend for a very long time to come.

    Yep, he looks purebred to me. The white chest flash is not desirable in the show ring but is not unusual and I think it looks cute.

    My guess would be yes, and he is adorable! I don't think all vets are always up on the standards of all the different breeds.....

    Yup, the only way to be sure is a blood test. Take what that would cost and get him treats instead!

    He is absolutely adorable and certainly looks all Pug to me.

    He looks all pug to me, and he is adorable! I would be proud to call him mine!

    But the pedigree doesn't matter, really. Just love him and treasure him. He will be a wonderful pet!
