Adopt A Pug
Black Pug Adoption – The American Kennel Club (AKC) classifies Black Pugs as “just another color”. The standard genetic markers for a Black Pug are a “C” adrenal gland and a “G” retina. The AKC also requires that the Black Pug be non-males and non-juvenile. Black Pugs have to have been spayed or neutered.
Black Pugs are smaller than their counterparts Pugs. They grow between ten and twelve inches at the shoulder. Black Pugs also have white fur, unlike the white fur of the Pugs. The ears of Black Pugs are large and set high, with a black ring at the base of each ear.
Black Pugs are originally from Japan where they were used for hunting rabbits. Because of their short nose, the Black Pugs were originally bred to pull rabbits out of tall grass. Today, these dogs pull rabbits out of woodlands. Because of their short noses, breeders do not typically allow Black Pugs in competitions because their risk of being “smelled”, has increased.
Black Pugs are sometimes referred to as “CP”, which stands for Costa Rican.
If you adopt a Black Pug from an AKC breeder, then you will not have to pay the “CP” registration fees. The fees are collected by the AKC. In addition to these fees, you will also need to pay the setup fee (more than likely on the amount of time your Black Pug will spend at the shelter) and the final adoption fee.
To adopt a Pug from a shelter, you must pay the full adoption fee. The fee is generally divided between the shelter and the breeder. The breeder usually pays the setup fee. He will pay the final adoption fee. In most cases, he will also cover the cost of spaying or neutering if the dog has not been spayed or neutered already. If the Pug has already been spayed or neutered, the breeder will often pay the cost of the operation.
Once you have adopted a Black Pug from the shelter, it’s not out of the question that you will want to raise the pup yourself. A Pug is a great dog to have, and raising one on your own can be very rewarding. Keep in mind though, that the cost of raising a Pug is much higher than raising a Pug with his mother.
Adopting a Pug is not like buying a cat from the pet store.
Be sure to research reputable breeders who offer good Purebred Pugs to adopt. Be sure to interview prospective breeders before purchasing a Pug. You can learn a lot about a breeder by asking for references and talking to people who have bought from the breeder. Ask about the breeder’s reputation, as well as how long he has been in business and if the breeder offers any form of guarantee. Be wary of breeders who do not provide any type of paperwork to back up their claims of being legitimate.
Even though you will pay more for an adorable Black Pug puppy than you would for other breed dogs, you will benefit from the Black Pug’s loyalty, intelligence, beauty, and love of children. Pugs are wonderful family pets, and they make wonderful additions to any home. Make sure that you carefully examine the breeder you plan to adopt from. Your Black Pug puppy will thank you for choosing to adopt him or her, and you will have a loyal life companion.
When you have chosen a Pug from a reputable breeder, be prepared to provide him or her with extensive training. Be prepared to obtain a dog who is accustomed to obedience classes, and who will quickly become your best friend. Be prepared to obtain at least one Pug puppy, because there is no way to get rid of them once you have them.
Before deciding to adopt a Pug, be sure to visit a breeder who offers Pugs, otherwise, you may be taking a gamble by choosing a breed you are not familiar with.
While the Black Pug is known to be a good companion dog, he or she can also be fierce when guarding its territory and is not always the best choice for apartment living. Keep in mind that Black Pugs are very protective of their space, and can be very difficult to allow into an apartment.
If you need a small-time dog that will not eat all day long, or a dog that requires only minimal exercise, consider adopting a Pug instead. If you need a medium-sized dog that will eat a whole meal in one sitting, but you want to keep your space because you have small children, an Adoption Pug may be the right breed for you.
A reputable breeder should be willing to provide documentation as to the health of his or her breeding dogs. A Pug that has been wormed and vaccinated is far less likely to develop cancer or other problems. It is important to be sure that you are choosing a responsible breeder before purchasing a Pug from him or her. If you do decide to adopt a Pug, you are choosing a great companion with a loving and devoted personality.
