There are certain advantages to fostering your Pug puppies instead of purchasing them from a pet store or breeder.

The other advantage is that you can ask the breeder or pet store if they have any connections with local Pug rescue organizations.
Before you adopt a Pug, there are some things that you will need to do.
You will need to fill out an adoption application form that explains to the potential adopters all of the histories of your pugs including why you want them and how you are going to care for them once you get them. You will also need to let them know if you plan on breeding your pugs or not. Often when dogs are adopted from a breeder or shelter they are neutered. Ask the person that helps you with the adoption if this is something that you can expect.
The next thing that you need to do is go on a home visit with your foster family member before you decide to adopt a Pug. Most of the time these Pug adoptions are done through a non-profit organization like the American Kennel Club. This way you can be assured that the pug will be well taken care of, just as the dogs that are in the adoption centers are.
On the day of your visit, you should take the dog for a walk and show him where the bathroom is.
Also, take some time to talk to your foster family member and let them know how much you enjoy having a Pug in your household. You and your family must know that a pug will have some special needs and that you will have to be willing to be extra careful when caring for him. In the end, if you decide to adopt a Pug it will be a wonderful lifelong companion for you and your family.

You should also ask for information on how you would be able to keep them clean. You might even want to find out if they would prefer to be taken to a day spa or grooming salon. If you follow these tips during your foster pug home visit, you will have an adorable little furball that will love you forever.
