Well, with both of your pugs fawn, it will be pretty much impossible to get a black. You will have a slight chance if you have two or more grandparents that are black, but it is still a very slim chance. Black is recessive and even if you have one fawn and one black parent, you will still get only about 50 50. Half black pups and half fawn pups. Two black parents will usually give you all black, but even then you stand a better chance of getting a fawn in that litter than a black in a 2 fawn parent litter.
If you find a good black male for stud service, then you could keep a black female, and she wouldn't be related to your male, so you would have 2 females one fawn and one black to breed to your male. then you should get black puppies out of the black female. Like I said before, about half the litter usually will be black but it will still favor the fawn color USUALLY. I say it that way cause I have gotten litters of 4 blacks and one fawn before, but like I said, it is not the normal.
That probably wasn't what you were hoping to hear, but I hope it answered your question.
SORRY I DIDN'T GET BACK SOONER BUT I WAS CAMPING. ( I AM NOT YELLING (CAPS) JUST CAN'T FIND MY GLASSES AND THIS IS EASIER TO READ.)
THERE ARE LOTS OF THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN GETTING READY TO BREED, BUT HAVING TO HAVE A C SECTION IS NOT REALLY ONE OF THEM. I THINK YOUR VET IS AN ANTI BREEDER VET. THEY DO NOT THINK ANY ONE SHOULD BREED THIER DOGS AND TRY TO DISCOURAGE THEM ANY WAY THEY CAN, EVEN TO TRYING TO SCARE THEM. OR HE IS DIFFINETLY NOT FAMILIAR WITH PUGS, AND IN EITHER CASE I WOULD FIND A NEW VET!
PUGS ARE ONE OF THE HEALTHIEST BREEEDS I KNOW, IF THEY COME FROM SOUND BLOOD LINES. YOU SHOULD PROBABLY DO SOME RESEARCH ON GENETICS AND CHECK INTO THE HEALTH HISTORY OF YOUR PROSPECTIVE BREEDERS AND GET A GOOD OPINION FROM A VET THAT IS NOT AGAINST THE BREED OR AGAINST BREEDING.
Thank you for answering my message.
Thats really interesting, as it has been my experience (as a professional breeder for 40 years) that they very rarely ever have to have a c section. In 40 years I have had only 4 c sections and in each case it was a still born stuck clear in the very back of the uterus and the momma was just to tired after 4 or 5 others being born to have enough strength to push it on out. I am personal friends with 3 other breeders here in Az. and so far none of them have ever had to have a c section. of course they have only been breeding for 6 and up to 10 years. This makes for an interesting topic I think. How about a poll of people who have bred thier female pug at least once and did they have to have a c section. I think it would be interesting to see what the averages come out to. Over the years i have had many vets give out misinformation on the pug in different areas. they can't know everything about all the breeds and many assume because they look like a boston that they share the same traits such as the big head that the bostons babies have.
How long have you been breeding. Don't you just love them when they are so tiny?? Of course we love them even as they grow up, but they are sooo cute when they are tiny. even after all this time as a breeder, I still get all excited over a new litter! How many litters have you had? i just had a litter born on the 4th of July and thier grandfather is our champion male, Yankee Doodle Dandy. Quite a coincidence I think. we nick named them LIBERTY, FREEDOM, AND JUSTICE.
Let me know if you decide to do a poll or something. I think it might generate a lot of interaction with the members.
Thanks again for getting back to me.
