Welcome to “Diamond Pug Puppies”, We are small pug breeding family with special love for this breed , we find them very affectionate and fascinating , you would be very surprise how lovely this breed is.
We started breeding 5 years ago after researching all we could about these lovely breed. our first Pug Hugo , Hugo was followed a year later by Lola,a few years later by Coco .Pugs are a true passion of mine since I was little.
Our aim is to breed not for quantity but top quality puppies, Health is a priority in both the females & males. All our pugs match the AKC breed standard. Ours pet’s live indoors with us as part of our family, their babies are raised in our bedroom until they are old enough to come downstairs. We love breeding these animals and see the joy it brings our children each litter we have.nThere is nothing that brightens a dull day more that a Pug staring back at you when you wake up in the morning. The health, comfort and happiness of our Pugs are my main priorities. No time, effort or expense has been spared to provide a clean and loving home for them.
The Pugs have completely consumed our lives. We live and breathe Pug! If you come visit, you will see Pug pictures, statues, pillows, and every imaginable Pug thing everywhere you look! We have greatly enjoyed making new friends all over the country because of the Pugs.
THE PUG BREED
Decidedly square and cobby, it is ‘multum in parvo’ shown in compactness of form, well knit proportions and hardness of muscle, but never to appear low on legs, nor lean and leggy.
Great charm, dignity and intelligence.
Even-tempered, happy and lively disposition.
Head and Skull
Head relatively large and in proportion to body, round, not apple-headed, with no indentation of skull. Muzzle relatively short, blunt, square, not upfaced. Nose black, fairly large with well open nostrils. Wrinkles on forehead clearly defined without exaggeration. Eyes or nose never adversely affected or obscured by over nose wrinkle. Pinched nostrils and heavy over nose wrinkle is unacceptable and should be heavily penalised.
Dark, relatively large, round in shape, soft and solicitous in expression, very lustrous, and when excited, full of fire. Never protruding, exaggerated or showing white when looking straight ahead. Free from obvious eye problems.
Thin, small, soft like black velvet. Two kinds – ‘Rose ear’ – small drop-ear which folds over and back to reveal the burr. ‘Button ear’ – ear flap folding forward, tip lying close to skull to cover opening. Preference given to latter.
Slightly undershot. Wide lower jaw with incisors almost in a straight line. Wry mouths, teeth or tongue showing all highly undesirable and should be heavily penalised.
Slightly arched to resemble a crest, strong, thick with enough length to carry head proudly.
Legs very strong, straight, of moderate length, and well under body. Shoulders well sloped.
Short and cobby, broad in chest. Ribs well sprung and carried well back. Topline level neither roached nor dipping.
Legs very strong, of moderate length, with good turn of stifle, well under body, straight and parallel when viewed from rear.
Neither so long as the foot of the hare, nor so round as that of the cat; well split up toes; the nails black.
High-set, tightly curled over hip. Double curl highly desirable.
Viewed from in front should rise and fall with legs well under shoulder, feet keeping directly to front, not turning in or out. From behind action just as true. Using forelegs strongly putting them well forward with hindlegs moving freely and using stifles well. A slight unexaggerated roll of hindquarters typifies gait. Capable of purposeful and steady movement.
Fine, smooth, soft, short and glossy, neither harsh, off-standing nor woolly.
Silver, apricot, fawn or black. Each clearly defined, to make contrast complete between colour, trace (black line extending from occiput to tail) and mask. Markings clearly defined. Muzzle or mask, ears, moles on cheeks, thumb mark or diamond on forehead and trace as black as possible.
Ideal weight 6.3-8.1 kgs (14-18 lbs). Should be hard of muscle but substance must not be confused with overweight.
Any departure from the foregoing points should be considered a fault and the seriousness with which the fault should be regarded should be in exact proportion to its degree and its effect upon the health and welfare of the dog.
Male animals should have two apparently normal testicles fully descended into the scrotum.
