Questions & Answers

Questions about Pug puppies for sale in California? We have answers.

Are Pugs good for apartments?

Absolutely! In fact, there are many apartment dwellers and small homeowners searching for a Pug for sale in California thanks to the fact that these dogs work so well in smaller spaces. They're only little dogs and they're quite lazy too, so don't need a lot of room to move around or big backyards to run in. Don't forget, however, that they do still need some exercise to avoid gaining weight.

Can I only pick from local breeders?

In the past, if you wanted to buy Pug puppies California, you had to limit your search to local breeders only. Depending on where you were, you either had to choose between Pug breeders Northern California or Pug breeders Southern California, but in modern times, things have changed! The vetted breeders in our network are able to make travel arrangements for your dog, delivering it out to a major airport near you and letting you choose from a wider range of breeders and puppies all across the country.

How do you screen breeders with Pug puppies for sale in California?

There are a lot of scams and unethical breeders out there offering Pug puppies for sale Northern California, but we're here to bust through the lies and help you avoid the backyard breeders. Any breeder wanting to join our network has to pass our in-depth screening procedure, which takes a range of factors into account like animal welfare and professional breeding standards. Read through our Breeder Pledge to learn more.

How much is the average Pug?

Looking for a Pug for sale California? There are no fixed prices when it comes to Pug puppies for sale in Southern California or Pug puppies Northern California.

Why is California Puppies different from finding a dog online?

There are many sites out there where you can find a Pug breeder California and buy puppies, but not all of them are truly reliable. Many companies offer dogs from backyard breeders and puppy mills, but we do things differently. We take the time to independently evaluate every breeder that wants to join our network, only approving the top 10%. In short, when you search for California pug breeders with us, you know you'll only get the very best results.

What’s all this about puppy mills? Why are they so bad?

Sadly, a lot of people looking for a Pug California end up buying dogs from puppy mills. Pups from these places are way more likely to have health issues and shorter lifespans, leading to big vet bills and major stress for their owners. Puppy mills are all about profits, without any real care for the animals involved, so if you believe dogs deserve better, we recommend avoiding puppy mills at all costs.

Are there any Pug mixed puppies available?

For sure! There are plenty of designer Pugs out there nowadays and you can find a great mixture of Pug puppies in California from our trusted breeders. Whether you want French Bulldog Pug mix puppies for sale in Southern California or another unique variant of California Pug, our extensive network of breeders can meet your needs.

What kind of dog is a Pug?

Back before there was a single Pug breeder Southern California or any Pug pups in the US, these dogs originated in China. They were later brought to Europe, where they became popular with royals and nobles like Dutch kings and queens. From there, their popularity grew and grew, with many people enjoying their fun-loving nature and cute little faces. Overall, pugs can be described as adorable and amusing dogs with big personalities!

How does California Puppies work?

At California Puppies, we aim to help you adopt a Pug in California as easily as possible, and the whole process starts right here. Browse through our selection of currently available Pug pups from our partner breeders and businesses. Contact the breeders to ask any questions or request more info if you like, and then make arrangements to collect your pup when you find one that sounds right for you.

What are some of the common Pug health problems?

Due to their flat faces, Pugs can suffer from respiratory difficulties more commonly than other dog breeds. They can also develop eye and skin issues too, so owners need to pay special attention to their facial area and seek prompt veterinary treatment if they notice anything wrong. Remember that your Pug pup will be more likely to have health issues if you buy from a backyard breeder or puppy mill.
