Pugs in my opinion are one of the cutest dog breeds in the world. They first originated in ancient China many centuries ago. They lived with the emperor and was used as a royal lap dog.
Eventually, the Pug breed made its way around the world and got to the United States. Many people are captivated by the squished in face look of this adorable small breed dog.
The American Kennel Club first recognized the Pug breed into its club in 1885! The American Kennel Club places this breed in the toy category.
The Pug can weigh anywhere from 15-2- pounds in weight and stands around 10-14 inches high. The Pug should live between thirteen and fifteen years.
I have many articles about the Pug breed as well as some mixed Pug breed articles. You can check those out to find more specific information about temperament, feeding, and livability.
Today, I will be helping you find Pug puppies for sale. It can be hard to find a reputable breeder, so I am here to help!
How much are Pug Puppies for Sale?
A purebred Pug puppy can actually cost a lot of money. Some breeders have championship bloodline puppies that will cost an exuberant amount of money.
Most breeders have a range that they typically charge for a Pug puppy. On a lower cheaper end, you can get a pug puppy for around $850-$1,000. Then there are some breeders that charge a whole lot more, from $1,000-$5,000.
This will again depend on the linage and bloodline of the Pug and if it comes with registration papers or show quality papers.
Remember that if this is too expensive for you, you can always look into finding a Pug rescue. Rescues typically have older dogs, and they will rarely get a puppy.
There is still a chance, though, so if you are interested in rescuing a Pug that needs a home, you can scroll down to the bottom of this article where I link a few Pug rescues.

Locate a Pug Rescue
Rescuing a dog is a great option when you can’t afford a puppy from a breeder. There are many dogs who are in rescues that need a good home to go to.
One pug rescue I was able to find is the Mid Atlantic Pug Rescue, they have a variety of different colored pups in a variety of different states that are looking for a home.
Their goal is to find loving homes for their rescues to live in. When you get a dog from a rescue it will most likely be an older dog that may have some sort of health condition.
I have also found a list of a bunch of different rescues for Pugs listed for each state. To find the closest rescue to you you can check this link out: https://www.pugpartners.com/resources/other-national-rescue-groups
