Q: How old are the puppies?
A: The puppies were born on December 21, 2012
Q: What are the puppies' names?
A: They don't have names. Their forever parents will give them names when they go to their forever homes.
Q: What are their genders?
A: There are two girls and one boy.
Q: What if I'm interested in adding one of these Pug puppies to my family?
A: Please contact the owner via the website: http://www.dakinepugs.com
Q: Is there a vet to keep an eye on the puppies?
A: The puppies are under the constant supervision of trained professionals. We do not recommend that others support a litter of newborn pups without proper training, access to a qualified veterinarian, experienced professional guidance, and veterinary knowledge.
Q: Where are the puppies?
A: These pups are in a loving home, under the constant care of responsible professionals. The pen they are in is specially designed to house the puppies and their mother.
Q: Why does mom disappear sometimes?
A: Mama Pug has room in her pen that allows her to step away from her pups when she needs some "me" time. She is also exercised regularly and goes for walks. Her food and water dish are just off camera, inside the pen.
Q: Why does mom seem to lick the puppies' genital area?
A: At this age, puppies cannot control their bowel systems. Mom has to prompt them by licking and applying pressure to them to insure the puppies evacuate properly.
Q: Why does mom seem excited at times?
A: Having babies can be very stressful, even for dogs. Instinctually, new mothers are highly protective and can seem anxious around their new babes. Even when completely safe, moms still worries.
Q: Why don't the puppies move? Are they okay?
A: Puppies spend A LOT of time eating and sleeping for the first few weeks. Around 4 weeks old, they will start to develop and learn how to use their little legs.
Q: Do the puppies need human interaction for socialization purposes?
A: Yes. After the first few weeks, the puppies will be handled regularly to familiarize them with humans. This helps their general disposition, and is very important to insure a healthy relationship toward people.
Q: When do they start to eat regular dog food?
A: The puppies will begin to wean off of their mother around 6 weeks old.
Q: What if something goes wrong and a puppy gets sick?
A: The puppies have already had their initial vet check up and all seem healthy and strong. A regular veterinarian is available 24/7 if an occurrence should arise where one would be necessary. They will go through another thorough veterinary check up before going to their forever homes.
Q: What's up with Pugs?
A: The Pug breed is thought to have originated in Asia dating as far back as 400 BC. Pugs became popular pets with Buddhist monasteries in Tibet before the breed spread to Japan and Europe. They gained popularity in Europe when Prince William II became the King of England and kept Pugs as pets. In Holland, Pugs became the official dog of the House of Orange when a Pug saved the life of the Crown Prince. In France it was a Pug named "Fortune" that carried a secret message to Napoleon under his collar from Napoleon's imprisoned wife, Josephine in 1572.
Pugs are people pets and love to be near you! They make great family companions. Pugs don't need a whole lot of exercise. However, you need to take them on daily walks so they don't become obese. When training Pugs you have to remember, they are as stubborn as teenagers with the needs of an infant. So you need to be very patient when training them.
The most common coat color is fawn with a black mask but it can also come in silver fawn, apricot fawn, or black. They are also known for their wrinkly faces, which are similar to the marmoset monkey's facial expressions and are possibly the origin of their name, "Pug."
