Looking for a Pug in the Pittsburgh area or surronding area?

I'm a stay at home mom of two boys and would really like to adopt a pug. I have seen ads in the paper of breeders, but I am skeptical because they are selling about 5 or six other breeds and I have heard that you should run away from ads like that. Anyways, if anyone knows a pug that needs a great home ( puppy or older ) we are waiting to spoil them.

    You're right -- you should definitely stay away from breeders who have litters of several breeds at once -- these are nothing more than puppy mills.

    Here is a list of Pug breeders in Penn.:

    Hi, I understand that you are looking for some advice or resources to help fully train your dog or fix behavior problems. If a professional dog trainer is not an option at this time, or if you want to trt training your dog on your own (a great way to bond), I'd suggest you https://biturl.im/aU7AH

    A friend recommened it to me a few years ago, and I was amazed how quickly it worked, which is why I recommend it to others. The dog training academy also has as an excellent home training course.
