9/10/19 - We are accepting deposits for a spot on our wait list for BLACK puppies only until the end of Fall breeding. If you want to place a hold for a fawn for Spring breeding please contact us. Our next litter is due on 10/13. We have holds available for BLACK puppies only. The litter is expected to be mixed, both fawns and blacks.
If you have been added to another breeders DO NOT SELL list, please do not contact me to try and get a puppy.
IT IS EXTREMELY HOT OUTSIDE ! PLEASE DO NOT TAKE ANY CHANCES WITH YOUR PUG. ASSUME THEY ARE ALREADY OVERHEATING AND KEEP THEM INSIDE IN AIR CONDITIONING UNLESS THEY NEED TO BE OUTSIDE TO POTTY. THEY DO NOT NEED TO PLAY OUTSIDE IN THIS HEAT. A CAR RIDE IS ESPECIALLY DIFFICUT IN THIS WEATHER AND SHOULD ONLY BE DONE AS A NECESSITY. OUR PUGS ARE OUTSIDE DURING THE DAY FOR 3-4 MINUTES AT A TIME. WE USE THE TIMER (ALEXA) AND DO NOT ALLOW THEM OUT LONGER THAN THAT EXCEPT FOR VERY EARLY MORNING AND VERY LATE AT NIGHT. REMEMBER THAT THEY GO FROM LOOKING FINE TO HEATSTROKE IN MINUTES ! YOUR CAR SHOULD BE COMPLETELY COOLED BEFORE YOU CONSIDER PUTTING YOUR PUG IN IT, EVEN FOR A “SHORT” TRIP. PLEASE BE CAREFUL, BE OVER CAUTIOUS, KEEP YOUR BELOVED PET AS COOL AND SAFE AS POSSIBLE. IF YOUR PUG SEEMS OVERLY WARM, USE VERY COOL WATER AND A CLOTH TO COOL THEIR BODY, STARTING AT THEIR FACE. GO OVER AND AND OVER THEIR BODY WITH THE REFRESHED (DIP IN COOL WATER REPEATEDLY) CLOTH UNTIL THEY CALM DOWN AND COOL OFF.
7/26/19 - It is with great sadness that I write that I lost my beloved black pug Jak on 4/20/19. He was 13 1/2. I have been devastated by the loss and it overwhelms me just to write this now. It has taken this long just to be able to do so. Many of you that know me will understand as you have always seen my little man by my side. For those of you that I have been slow to answer or overly quick in my response, please understand - although it has gotten easier to deal with his loss I am still lost without him. Rest In Peace my little man.
Hi ! Welcome to Mountainside Pugs. Thank you for stopping by our website and looking at our pugs. Please check out our site and call or e-mail us with any questions you may have. We normally breed two to three times per year and will announce our breedings ahead of time. We take deposits in advance of litters to hold the puppy of your choice from a litter (the puppy is actually chosen at about 5 weeks of age). We also take names for our waiting lists. It is our goal to match you to the pug puppy you desire.
Pugs are absolutely wonderful dogs and great companions. We feel every human should be owned by one : )
We utilize genetic testing for PDE in our breeding dogs.
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT YOUR PUG CANNOT TOLERATE THE HEAT NO MATTER HOW MUCH FUN YOU THINK THEY ARE HAVING. USE A TIMER.
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT YOUR PUG MAY WANT TO STAY OUT WHEN IT IS VERY COLD BUT THEY CANNOT EFFECTIVELY WARM THE AIR GOING INTO THEIR LUNGS. YOU MUST LIMIT THEIR OUTSIDE TIME IN TEMPS UNDER 45. Some of ours love to play in the snow, we do allow it, we are just VERY careful to limit the time. As with the heat, the cold can be dangerous to our precious pets.
PLEASE CONTACT BY E-MAIL WHEN POSSIBLE. I VERY SELDOM GET TO THE PHONE BEFORE IT FLIPS TO VOiCE MAIL. My phone does not work well if the weather is bad and the voice mail also will not pick-up. If you have access to e-mail, please use it instead.
Choosing is done in the order we receive your deposit.
Please call or e-mail (contact form on this site) for information. E-mail is the preferred method of contact. We are seldom near the phone and also will not pick it up with unclean dog or puppy hands.
We will schedule customer/owner visits for one weekend approximately every other month based on current litter and breeding schedules unless it is for puppy choosing. If you have a puppy here, your puppy choosing and/or visit will be at approximately 5 weeks of age. We will also schedule any other customers that are interested in visiting for that same weekend. This is to help limit the disruption to our dogs and schedules. CLOSED TO VISITORS UNTIL 4/1/19.
WE DO NOT SELL TO PET STORES, BROKERS OR ANY OTHER THIRD PARTIES. WE DO NOT BREED PUGGLES. WE BREED ONLY AKC REGISTERED DOGS.
