Poodles are one of the oldest and most popular breeds around. These dogs have been bred for centuries and are well known for their agility, intelligence and friendliness. Most Poodle breeders want to see their puppies grow up to be happy and healthy dogs with stable temperaments. With proper training, a Pug should prove to be a great pet for its whole family including children.
Before you go into a Poodle rescue organization looking for a Pug, you should make sure that you’ve researched all of the breeders that you can find. Visit their kennels and meet with the breeder. You’ll need to be very wary of unscrupulous breeders who may want to take advantage of a prospective Poodle owner. Ask any questions that you feel are relevant so that you can feel comfortable with your choice. If possible, visit the kennels and meet the dogs that the Poodle breeders have in their breeding lines. It will be a rewarding experience for both you and the dog.
You should also check with your local AKC chapter or humane society to see if there are any reputable Poodle breeders in your area. It is also a good idea to talk to other dog owners in your neighborhood and find out from them who they got their dogs from. Poodle breeders who are consistently kind and give good care to their dogs will be more than happy to tell you all about them. Your search for the perfect Pug should be fun and hopefully it will end with a dog that’s as happy and healthy as the breeder says that he/she is.
