I really want to breed my 4 year old pug Lola, and have found a suitable stud. My concern is all the horror stories I have heard of. I am not her first owner, but she has had pups before according to my vet. Any information would be greatly appreciated!! I am prepared to do all the things like encourage feeding and breaking sacs, I am a stay at home mom, and not breeding for show, but for companionship!
Thanks in advance,
Jenn Stunned

Go to the breeding forum and read the "Reasons not to breed" and "read this before you post" stickies. Personally I would not breed a pug just for companionship. There's too much that can go wrong and I feel like you should have the knowledge and experience to breed to the standard. It's a very touchy issue, so I just want to say before you get any more responses, that everyone on this site cares deeply about pugs, and if they sound harsh it's because they're concerned about your pug and her future puppies.

Just for starters-- you need to have genetic testing done and you should know at least several generations back whether there were health issues. Pugs can have horrific genetic issues as a result of careless genetic screening. Make sure the stud has also had genetic testing and has been tested for STDs. GET A CONTRACT and read some of the stories in the breeding section about what can happen when the contract requires that you give a puppy back to the stud owner.

Have an emergency c-section fund. Pugs are notoriously prone to difficult deliveries.

Make sure you can reach your vet at any hour.

Get a mentor who has done it before.

And most importantly, please consider your motives. Do you want to improve the standard or do you just think it would be fun? Breeding can be heartbreaking. One of our members who is very experienced lost an entire litter not long ago. You need to be prepared to make tough decisions if something happens and you need to put a puppy or the mother down.

Good luck and I honestly wish you the best.
Amber mommy of Atilla and Wicket, the pugs

Amber has made valid points and given good advise.....if your reason for breeding is companionship....instead of putting such a huge risk on your girls life-and your heart-and pocketbook- You may be better off adopting or fostering a pug in need.  Or if you really want to raise a puppy- find a reputable breeder and adopt a companion puppy....MUCH MUCH less risky all around.
