Upcoming Litters email for Specifics about Our Waiting List
RESERVE YOUR PUPPY: Get on our waiting list! For all upcoming litters: Puppies are held with a $500.00 *non refundable deposit* (explanation below) which will be added onto the puppy price. Prices range from $1,800.00 to $2,300.00. *This does not include deposit.*
Breeding for quality pugs requires the utmost of dedication, and that translates into being prepared for emergency veterinarian visits, c-sections, breeding fees if artificial insemination is needed, pre and post breeding check ups as well as required x-rays or ultra sounds. And then there are all the special dietary and supplemental feeding we use to ensure we get the healthiest pups and moms and dads we possibly can. **This is exactly why deposits are necessary as they are the integral part of getting you the well bred, healthy and temperamentally sound puppy that will transition well into your family provided you are on board with our initial training from birth to ten to twelve weeks of age. Whelping pugs requires the careful and dedicated breeder to be there to help mom deliver, and remain with the litter for the first week or more. We are very careful to make sure all our dogs are carefully monitored. This is why deposits are never refundable, and its up to you to be dedicated to getting a puppy. Most bitches only come into heat every six months and theres never any guarantees a breeding cycle will end in a litter, so preparing for your puppy will take patience and the will to see it through. Remember this pug puppy will be with you for the better part of sixteen to eighteen years.
Please do not get on our waiting list if you want to continue to search for puppies and intend to demand a refund should another pup come available. We cannot work this way. Deposits are put towards immediate breeding costs so that by the time you ask for a refund "your puppy's" expense to gestate has already been applied. We'd rather you do all your searching prior to ever placing a deposit. We appreciate those that are understanding about the timing that goes into breeding and caring for newborns...and that we never know exactly when your puppy will be here prior to that pup actually being whelped and thriving for the first several weeks.
We are a family of two here and we spend time so that at no time is a litter left alone. Too much can happen within the first week of life. One of us is on call 24/7. So when you email or text message or instant message us and do not get a response know we simply cannot. We have fantastic Pug Parents and welcome our newly acquired parents into the "Pug Family". We will relay everything we can in as timely a fashion as possible. Updates on this site will happen given time and internet that is working (storms are a pain around here). We love receiving photos of puppies that are with their new families and will either post on here or on our Facebook page. I am always happy to see how our babies are developing over the years.
We have a great record so far with no history of illnesses nor allergies and absolutely no temperament issues .Please keep in mind no breed is without certain issues that may crop up, but we do everything we can to be educated and educate our families to avoid problems...much is listed below. My biggest pet peeve are families that use very toxic cleaning products on their floors and areas where their puppy spends most of its time. Cleaning up a mess with Lysol or Clorox or any other chemical is absolutely a prime reason your pets may not live long healthy lives. Please do not do this, as I wouldn't place a puppy with a family that would expose a pug to these products. Please be very careful and you will be greatly rewarded!
We provide all pups with the de-wormings they need, and the inoculations prior to going to their homes. We want to educate all our pug people about a protozoa that can affect puppies once they are put under the stress of moving from their mom to their new homes. We are specifically talking about a diabolical little pest that lives in the soil and even on flies, doesn't care whether or not your facility is clean...in fact veterinarian hospitals, public places, dog parks and the like can house this pest. Its called coccidia and is easily treated with sulfa drugs ( an antibiotic). Its in almost all dogs and stays dormant in the intestinal wall, as its a protozoa, not seen by the naked eye. Most puppies and grown dogs exhibit no symptoms and never have a problem, and many test negative and some negative tests can be false. Testing a dogs feces can pick it up but many times a fecal sample will test negative. This has nothing to do with worms and worming doesn't take care of coccidia. What is important to know is its most reactive when a puppy moves from their birthplace to their forever home. That stress alone can cause diarrhea; a common symptom and due to this we will usually put all puppies on a ten day course of the antibiotic or suggest each family test their puppy...although remember many puppies and dogs show absolutely no symptoms whatsoever and will never show any. It is advisable you consult with your veterinarian and see if they want you to treat for it if your puppy isn't symptomatic. Should you take a puppy home whether from here or another breeder and that puppy presents with diarrhea check with your vet anddo not panic or blame the facilitybecause there is no way to know exactly where a puppy picks this up, but its known it exists everywhere.
Please click on our Puppy Purchase tab at the top of this page, under "more". Our AKC registered Pugs come from healthy backgrounds, (all our breeding pugs have had their DNA tested and are negative for PDE and PK DEF. We give a two year guarantee on all our puppies and it is our focus to breed for standard, health, and temperament. All pups are sold with stipulations to be spayed or neutered unless otherwise agreed upon with breeder. We want exceptional pet homes, and screen everyone before selling any puppy to them. If for some reason after purchasing your pup you cannot keep him or her, we insist you let us know, and we will take the puppy /full grown pug back, or help you to adequately place the pug in a proper home. We think the world of these puppies and spend so much time as to have them specially trained before you take them home...which is a great help! It is up to each family to continue on with the training and hopefully take your puppy to classes, and or puppy day care. Be sure to thoroughly check out each facility to make sure its to your standards...no force training!
All puppies will go to their new homes complete with up to date vaccinations, wormings as well as preliminary training, . Each new owner will be given our "New Puppy Package" which includes all health records, toys, food and whatever we can think of.
We encourage all those excited about finding their new pug baby to STAY AWAY FROM PUPPY MILLS...AND PET STORES! It is our focus to get these horrible non caring humans ( if you want to call them that) to be forced out of business. Conditions are inhumane, and the puppies you purchase are well overpriced, and most pups have not only health issues but emotional issues that are very difficult to deal with. IT"S WORTH THE WAIT!!
* Please Note-The Pony Cafe Pugs' pricing may change without notice and in accordance with increased expenses. The Pony Cafe Pugs reserves the right to deny purchase or ownership of a puppy if it is determined by The Pony Cafe Pugs that the future forever home for puppy isn't suitable or a good situation for said puppy. **All deposits are NON-Refudable. All deposits are used to cover vet expenses for breeding, whelping and emergent care that is associated with the pugs' pregnancy...this insures you receive a happy, healthy pug puppy. It may take as long as twenty months to receive a puppy as we do not breed for quantity but breed for quality and are continually looking to improve on our lines. We get just as upset if a female slips a litter and doesn't get pregnant. Please do not be discouraged as we hold up our part here and work towards breeding and whelping great quality. We do not appreciate those that wait then decide they've waited long enough and want in front of another family. We have always held to first come basis and continue to do so. No one thats waited and received their precious pup has been anything but elated.
BELOW ARE SOME TRAINING TIPS....CHECK IT OUT :) ~Having Trouble with your NEW PUPPY?~ We want all our pups to be happy, and healthy. We want you to call us immediately if you are having any problems with your pug. We are here to help and we guarantee our pups are up to date on their shots and wormings when you adopt them. We urge you to have your veterinarian check out your new puppy.
IF there is any problem that cannot be addressed, we will work with you to find a remedy...Please call us if you do not intend to keep your puppy for whatever reason, and we will take the puppy back or find another suitable home. The Pony Cafe Pugs are healthy and happy when they leave this farm. It is natural for young puppies to feel stresses when they go to new homes. Here are a list of many symptoms to watch out for when your puppy comes into your home; Potential Problems; Not that we ever want to stress problems, we want to stress all the positives! 1. Some can become shy, and seem to be withdrawn. Solution: Be patient and keep other family dogs or small children away from the puppy unless you are right there Encourage the puppy with bits of his dry food as a reward for coming to you. Play for short periods of time and never leave your puppy with a stranger or member of the family that may not be as gentle as you are. Even though Pugs are considered very bright and easy going dog breed, they too can become overwhelmed, stressed, and we do not want that. They can become frightened with someone that "bounces them around" or plays too hard...no puppy should be doing that! 2. So Important!! Pug puppies can be really still, then "fly" like a spark plug!! Literally, they can be held and cuddled then bounce right out of your arms...Pugs do not land on their feet, and if they do, that too can be very dangerous! Solution: Just use common sense and make it a family rule that no children can hold the puppy unless they are SITTING DOWN!! Do not let adoring friends hold the puppy unless also sitting. As funny and bouncy and happy as they are they can sadly hurt themselves as quickly. Like most small dogs, they need extra time to get used to being "held" although we hold our babies all the time. If your pug seems restless he is probably trying to tell you he has to pee or poop...so put him in the area where you are training to do just that. 3. My puppy seems to be really aggressive and cries a lot Solution: It will take some time for any puppy to acclimate to a new environment....and again it may not! Many times a puppy will seem like they are being aggressive, (wanting to grab your shoes while you have them on, pulling your pant legs, taking hold of kids clothes, even jumping up and seeming to snap or bite...not to be confused with a growling aggressive bite, which I have not seen) when there are other factors to think about; IS the puppy getting too much stimulation from new adoring fans? The puppy is most likely teething and needs lots of chew toys to munch on at all times, and many times a puppy shows stresses of separation in this manner just as another pup will become a bit withdrawn. It is important to be patient, quiet yourself, and not scold the pup with a harsh tone as Pugs are really effected by that. However, if a puppy bites in play, we use the command "leave it" and when the pup lets go immediately hand him a treat, and praise with "What a good dog" Then ask the pup to sit with a quiet voice, give another treat, and say "good puppy". and leave it at that. Try not to "drill" the pug, as they are smart enough to become bored. Simply calm by soft words, switching the attention onto something different and more calming, use food as treats and try to work on just one command, like "down" or waving or staying for a very short "stay". Sometimes a puppy is too tired just like a human infant, and they cry and become agitated due to being over tired and stressed. Use the x-pen and open wire crate as we show on this site, use music, and just be around but not interactive with the pug. Sometimes we all need to cry a little bit to calm ourselves...just not left for hours with this issue please! 4. My puppy is home and has diarrhea, and won't eat. Solution: This is most likely due to being stressed in a new environment and away from siblings. BUT, first make sure you are feeding the same food in the same manner that we were. We feed Purina ONE, Healthy Puppy Formula, and it has small bites...Especially for a pug, watch they are not eating too large individual nuggets..they can get it caught. Next, make sure NO ONE in the family is sneaking the puppy treats that are either from the table scraps ( NEVER EVER do that!) or, very often and I am to blame on this...I fed store bought "Busy Bones," not realizing they were only to have them once a week!! You can feed natural foods if you like, but make the transition slowly. IF your puppy doesn't clear up the diarrhea within a day or so, please consult your veterinarian right away! Make sure pups have water in front of them at all times, and make sure it stays clean. BEWARE of any STANDING WATER OUTSIDE!! This is terribly dangerous for all dogs, but especially for puppies. Keep detergents, any cleaning agents for cars, even watch that leaking cars in the drive do not catch your dogs attention. Puppies are not that smart, and will play with anything that looks appealing; such as...
