Pekingese Pug Mix Puppy Breeders:
The breeders are the most important factor when it comes to choosing a dog breeder. There are many reputable breeders in China that sell pugs. However, there are some unscrupulous breeders that will not only lie to their customers but they may even attempt to pass off stolen dogs as pure bred pups!
You want to make sure that your pup does not end up with a shady breeder or one that is selling stolen pups. You want to buy from a reputable breeder. A reputable breeder will have done all the necessary research into finding the right puppy for you.
They will have checked out every known pedigree available online and spoken to all the recognized authorities on the breed such as AKC (American Kennel Club) and CERF (Canadian Orthopedic Dog Registry).
They will also do extensive background checks on potential buyers. If you are unsure whether a particular breeder is reputable, just Google them and see what other people say about them.

When you find a breeder that you would like to contact, make sure to ask them all the relevant questions about your breed in general and their kennels in particular. You should also ask to see health clearances for your puppies’ parents (and grandparents etc).
You really want to make sure that both sides have certified clearances because eye issues and occasionally other issues can crop up in the papers but not actually be present.
Many breeders will ask you why you want a dog and what kind of environment you have to offer. While they are not experts in the field of psychology, they can tell a lot by your answers.
Also, make sure that you visit at least three times so that you can see how the puppies are raised and treated. The environment the puppies are raised in is just as important as the genetics.
Puppies That Do Well With Kids:
The Pekingese Pug is a cross between two very different breeds. Their temperament and physical characteristics can vary widely depending on the characteristics of their parents and the environment that they grow up in. However, as a general rule, most Pekingese types do not tend to do well with children.
These dogs enjoy lounging around the house and being pampered. They do not need lots of vigorous exercise. They are happiest when they can spend lots of time relaxing with their favorite people.
These dogs should never be left outdoors in a yard for long periods of time. While most love to play, Pugs do not have the stamina for playing ball or lengthy romps in the park. These activities will leave them gasping for air and possibly result in a sad ending to your fun.
Children may enjoy tossing the Pug puppy around like a ball which could result in injury for both the dog and the child. The safest option is to not have children and this breed. If you do decide to get a dog, you should probably consider another option.
If you are set on getting a dog, but still want a Pekingese type, then you should always supervise the dog and child very closely. Kids under five should not be left alone with a dog of any breed.
These dogs do well when they have someone that can give them lots of affection and attention. Kids often fail to live up to this expectation. While some kids may shower the dog with affection, they often lose interest after a short period of time.
Children can also unintentionally harm the dog through rough play or inadvertently teaching the dog bad habits. For instance, a child may unintentionally teach the dog to nip at their ankles.
Always make sure to spend lots of one-on-one time with the dog; taking them for long walks and teaching them to obey commands. The “two second rule” is a good guideline in these situations. If you are going to be away from the dog for less than two minutes, then the dog should stay in whatever location they are currently in.
