Our foundation bitch:  CH Larimar's Stardust CD, CGC, ROM


Welcome to our pugs' website.  In this site, you will find information about our beloved pugs, who are--first and foremost--our cherished family members.  We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to share our home and hearts with this amazing, funny, sweet, and smart breed for the past 22 years.  Each one of our pugs has been very special.

In 1996, we were lucky enough to adopt CH Larimar's Stardust CD, CGC (Star). Star is the fawn foundation of our pugs.  In 2004, CH CandyLand's BLKHawk of Arvay (Kirby) came to live with us, and he became our black foundation stud dog of our line of black pugs. 

With very limited breeding, there have been 24 conformation champion, obedience, agility, or rally title holders since 1996 who are direct descendants of Star or Kirby.  Title holder or not, all of our dogs are champions of the heart to us and to the families who get to adopt them. 

Health of our beloved breed is a priority.  We have been doing OFA testing our pugs since 1996.  In fact, we've been doing testing since well before the parent club even recommended testing.  Our pugs are tested for OFA hips, OFA  patellas, CERF, and PDE Susceptibility before they are used in our breeding program. Although genetic tests alone cannot guarantee health against all illnesses and diseases, they do allow for the opportunity to make better, more informed decisions. 

Because we care so much about the appearance, temperament, and health of our breed, we have met the requirements to be recognized as an American Kennel Club (AKC) Breeder of Merit-BronzeThis is a program designed by the AKC to recognize "accomplished breeders...who are dedicated to breeding beautiful purebred dogs whose appearance, temperament, and ability are true to their breed" (AKC website, 2014).

Since we are serious about
meeting specific health testing standards, participating in continuing education to excel our dog breeding program, being accountable and responsible for our dogs, and meeting a tradition of excellence, we have also met the requirements to be included in the AKC's Bred with H.E.A.R.T. program since 2015.
