Do Pugs Have a Proclivity for Hearing Loss?

June 5th, 2012

I have two pugs and they have both gone deaf around their 11th birthday. Does the breed have a unique genetic disposition towards deafness? It’s just odd that both of mine went deaf around the same time.

While there is nothing definitive - it does not appear that it is a recognized congenital defect in the breed. However, I did find several entries where rescue organizations indicate there seems to be a higher than average incidence of deafness in Pugs.

Sorry, that’s all I could find.

Can My Ten Year Old Pug Have Puppies?

June 1st, 2012

So my pug is ten years old , she’s healthier than any other pug I’ve seen . A few weeks ago I found her mating with my neighboors dog . How do I know of she can have puppy’s or not?.

No, absolutely not!

One: Pugs have really hard labor and deliveries, due to their respiratory problems

Two: Ten years of age is critically beyond the safe age for ANY dog to be bred and have puppies

Three: The worst thing that would be against your 10 year old Pug having pups is having a very clueless, ignorant breeder/owner trying to do something he/she knows nothing about to the extreme detriment of the dog.

You wanna kill her? Go ahead and breed her. And since the gestation is only 62 days, you need to take her to the vet to see if she is; and if so, abort/spay her ASAP!!!

Mini .22 Mag Pug Revolver Question?

May 30th, 2012

I just wanted to know if it can chamber any .22 round because it is chambered for a mag. Can it shoot shorts and longs as well or low velocity rounds for back yard quiet plinking. Also how does it work as a self defense weapon just in case. Does anyone have one of these or any mini .22 that could give any pros or cons. Figured it would be a hell of a lot cheaper to be target shooting with longs instead of my .45

Thanks for the help

No, not as it is. The 22 magnum cylinder is for only 22 magnum. A 22 long rifle cylinder will/would work with the shorter rounds, but the Pug doesn’t have the dual cylinder option that many other models have available. (I don’t know why they don’t just make it easy for the Pug, too.)

The site navigation has changed since I saw it explained on there. Basically, it was that you can buy a 22 long rifle cylinder for it, but you need to send in the frame to have cylinder fitted and timed.

What Are Some Airlines That Allow Shipping Sub-Nosed/pug-Nosed Dogs in America?

May 27th, 2012

I have a mixed Boston Terrier dog that is in very good health.

She’s never had any trouble breathing, since she’s a mix and does not have that snubbed of a nose.

Does anyone know of any airlines that has not banned snub-nosed dogs from being shipped?

We’re flying from Utah to Florida in mid-June, by the way.

1) Use any travel site, like kayak.com, expedia.com, orbitz.com, enter the cities involved and pick a date near when you think you will be flying.
2) That will give you a list of all airlines that make that specific trip
3) Go to the websites of every one of them and look up pet policies.
Or - call each one and ask.

That is the best that you can do - you <<do not>> want to take our word on this topic - we could be totally wrong.

Help With Making a Sims 3 Pets Pug Rescue Website Using Weebly?!?

May 14th, 2012

Hi all. I want to know how I can build an amazing kennel and how I can do this without the master controller mod. I want to have a pug rescue and a website for it. I want to use Weebly and want to know how and what would be the best way to make the layout look like. I would probably have 2 other families so I can have pug rescues, collie rescues, and pitbull terrier rescues all on this website. Also if I can figure out how to add custom content I will add custom content. I can’t use the master controller because it doesn’t work on my game. Any ideas and help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I think before you jump into the whole making a website, you should consider what you want to get out of it and what’s the best and least time-consuming way for you to achieve that. If you just primarily want a way to keep a record of your Sims 3 pets pug rescue game, I strongly recommend you go with a blog, instead of messing about with websites and designs for it, which will take up a lot of your time.

That way you can truly have your Sims 3 idea online in 10 minutes (rather than the endless amount of time you’d otherwise spend making everything look exactly as you want) and then just simply make a new entry in your blog whenever you feel like it. The most successful Sims 3 fan blog is:

http://aliceandkev.wordpress.com

You can borrow a lot of ideas from there. For blogs, WordPress is simply better than Weebly (and any other platform for that matter), so I’d go with WordPress and that same K2-lite template or a similar clean looking template. Then if you’re good at telling a story and at adorning it with pictures, you may find that some people take an interest in your Sims 3 adventure. If they don’t, at least you haven’t spent days and days building a pretty website that no one is visiting.

In theory you could do just that, having the three families, each looking after one breed, but in practice, I think switching between families and keeping track of what’s happening in each household and in the scattered pets’ lives could become a pain. I would try to get MasterController working properly in your game. There’s no reason why it shouldn’t and it would make your save 100 times easier to manage. This is my working MasterController set-up:

Is It Too Late for My Pug to Find Another Pug and Have Puppies?

May 10th, 2012

He’s almost 8 and we want puppies before he gets too old is it too late?

He isn’t too old, but I don’t recommend breeding your dog just because you want some cute puppies. Those puppies will eventually need to find other homes and there are way too many dogs out there needing homes already.

Pug’s First Day at Home, Need Help.?

May 4th, 2012

Alright, so I wanted to buy a Female Pug for my Dad, therefore went to the Dog show today, there were plenty of breeders, all of them were selling the pug puppies of over 2 months which is super.

There was a breeder over there who actually wanted to get rid of a 1-1.5 month old female pug, for some reason it was a left out puppy, and nobody was ready to buy her. I was standing at his stall and was playing with other dogs he had, mean time another breeder showed up, and these guys started talking in another language, fortunately i knew that language, they were deciding on either to sell it for whatever they can get, or else were planning to abandon her, I don’t know why but these guys wanted to just free up that crate for another litter of Husky.

Anyways, long story short, I paid a decent amount to rescue her, she is like 45 days old, beautiful female puggy (yeh that’s what i call her for now) I’m giving her Cerelac in the lukewarm cow’s milk.

She eats very little, and was sort of shivering, therefore i ended up putting her crate infront of the room heater, she is now looking bit calm and stable, and sleeping very sweetly.

I need to know how often should i feed her, what should I feed her, and how should I treat her …like should i just let her stay in the crate for some time, and let her pee and poo in the crate itself, i need to know a timetable sort of thing which you feel i should follow to raise her well.

You can see her pictures here - https://picasaweb.google.com/118379698636826503564/Puggy?authkey=Gv1sRgCO2nqJDMzvL4gAE#

My dad wants to know if its a good idea to feed her some egg white (boiled) or some minced chicken? Please give me tips and share your experience.

Ok I dont know what kind of dog show you went to? It sounds more like a mill auction. But it is done and you have a tiny baby to take care of that should not have left mama yet. You can give her scrambled egg, but I prefer to use goat milk mixed with jarred baby meat.

NO COW milk it will give her the runs… which will cause her to become dehydrated & weaker. If she does well with the mix for a couple days then you can try more eggs, hamburger (warm raw is easier for her to eat), or a GOOD quality puppy food soaked in goat milk or milk replacer. It takes longer for them to learn to drink water without inhaling it. Feed her at least 4 or 5 times a day. I let them eat as much as they want at that age. That is how I teach them not to be food aggressive.

Put just half of the crate in front of the heater so she can move away from the heat if she gets too warm. You can make her a little litter box with wood shavings like you would get for a ferret or hamster. She should not be outside without shots. If they were selling her early I doubt she has been wormed or had any shots. YOU do not want to just let her pee & poop in the crate because then you will not be able to house train her.

To make a litter box is easy she is tiny just get a big cat box. Put her in it every hour or so… And after she eats. She is gonna have accidents- she is too little to know what you want her to do. You can rub her lower belly with a warm damp cloth or paper towel to encourage her to pee & poop.

It will stimulate circulation if you rub her all over with a dry cloth. Her mama would still be cleaning her several times a day. She would still be sleeping with her siblings and beginning to play. So you do want to hold her & play with her when she is ready… If she is still weak then hold her rub her with a towel at least a few times a day -each time you feed her. Just plan to change her bed everyday, maybe more…
