We joyfully share our lives and home with pugs....

  and we LOVE to spread the joy of sharing life with a pug...or two or three .....or perhaps even more?

Our Amazing Graceland

We live on 25 beautiful wooded acres,our own "Amazing Graceland", on a small private lake. We have three large dogs and one little terrier who run the acreage and serve as  Greeters and Escorts to our front door.
(We still live in the same location, but the house is no longer here.We lost this house to a fire in April 2009 and rebuilt. I will update with photos of the new house soon, in the meantime there are a few photos on the "News" page.)

We have been owned by pugs since 2001, when we added Chloe Belle to our family. We have developed a passion for these sweet and funny little clowns, otherwise known as   PUGS.

Our newest venture is our beginning in showing our pugs. We are very excited about the future, hoping to finish a few of our pugs to their Championships in AKC Conformation. We love that our pug family continues to grow in numbers, not only in pugs, but also in "Pug People". We occasionally have pug puppies available for "companion/pet homes".

Each time we place a pug baby in his/her new home, we feel we have added members to our family. We then consider ourselves an "adoption service", rather than "breeders", although we are ever striving to improve in the breeding of our pugs. We plan each breeding thoughtfully and with care, with each breeding seeking to "breed up" (improve), if possible.

All of our pugs are registered with the AKC.We now have added a French Bulldog,Paris, to our family. She is also AKC registered. We breed responsibly and focus on quality, not quantity. Our girls are bred every other season and very pampered throughout pregnancy. They know that pregnancy means its time for homemade chicken stew from the crockpot!

We have two teen daughters who help us in caring for our pugs and puppies.We also have six other grown children who have moved out and on with their lives. I have discovered,however,how to avoid an empty nest,...PUGS!

All of our pugs are quite spoiled.They are fed a quality,holistic food without corn,wheat,dyes and artificial preservatives.We can tell an improvement in their coats and activity levels,as can our vet.At a recent check up our vet commented "Whatever you are doing,keep it up!" Our pugs are also eating less,which is often the case with a high quality food.

Our pugs live in our home as family members. As our pug family members increase,so does the size of our house. Our new Pug Room is wonderful! We experienced a house fire in 2009, which destroyed our entire home. Rebuilding on the same site allowed us to make many improvements in design.Our large pug room adjoins our entry,so that we are able to be close to all of the pugs...that is,the ones that aren't underfoot.The new design also allows the pugs to be greeters(and announcers!) for our guests.

Our puppies are raised underfoot,amidst our family.They are in our bedroom from birth until they are 6-8 weeks old.Once they are 4 weeks old, they spend the days with me in the living room,then move back to our bedroom at night.At 6-8 weeks of age, they move to the Pug Room, where they have a large space to play and interact with the pugs(separately) and people. We are very selective when placing them in their forever homes.We have been exceptionally blessed with the wonderful and loving families who have adopted our pug puppies over the years. Of course,we would never sell puppies to brokers,pet stores,puppymills/puppyfarms,nor kennels for mass breeding purposes.We also will not "ship" a puppy in cargo of an airplane to deliver a puppy to his/her new home.We will instead hand deliver your puppy ourselves,if at all possible,or by a puppy nanny.You are also welcome to meet us at Lambert International Airport in St. Louis ,to carry your puppy on board with you for his/her flight home, or  come to our home and pick up your puppy when he/she is 10  to 12 weeks of age. We encourage you to visit your puppy after 4 weeks of age,with certain precautions to avoid germs. We generally have only 3-4 litters per year and often have a waiting list for our puppies. We are also breeding for our next generation of show prospect pugs  for "keepers".

Our grand-daughter spends time here frequently with "Mema" and "Papa", helping to care for and love the pugs. She owns a pug of her own, named Daisy,who also comes over for Pug Playdates. We also now have a new grandson, born in August of 2008. We have discovered that Daisy is a great baby-sitter, also!
