Paignton Pugs

Thanks for such a good entry at this wonderful west country show. I was really impressed with the quality of this entry, Pugs must rate as one of the strongest breeds in the country at the moment. Dogs I felt were stronger than bitches and I can honestly say that any one of the males in my line up I would have happily signed a CC for. Bitches not as stromg, but plenty of crackers.

I tried to go for a fairly square Pug, that moved out well, and there were plenty. A few with smaller than ideal noses. Some coats were a concern and trimming seems to be common place. I didn’t think any had health concerns. It was also great to see great sportsmanship and a good range of ages handling. Breeders certainly have plenty of super males to choose from for the next generation.
