Home of top quality, family raised AKC champion line and champion sired Pug and Havanese puppies

non commercial Kennel license

You have come to the right place!

With over 25 years of experience in breeding and showing dogs, Camelot Pugs is the haven for quality, healthy puppies.

Please do not contact us for Christmas puppies. No good breeder has pups ready before Christmas that weren't sold unborn, months before the holidays. If a pup is waiting to become your Christmas present, it didnt sell for a reason or because there is a never ending supply. Thank you!
We breed healthy, well socialized, happy Pug puppies and have very high standards regarding breeding, raising and placing our puppies.

We are fully licensed through the state of PA as a non-commercial private kennel.
We offer an excellent support system for the life of our AKC Pug puppies.
All our adults are health tested, are on the premises and live in our home.
All our adults of the past 20 years were AKC champion lines, most on both sides, some are triple champion and grandchampion sired, and their pups come with customary shots and wormings, AKC papers, towel with mom's scent, first food supply and, maybe more importantly, with a lifelong support system that includes unlimited coaching as well as a unique lifelong genetic warranty which will refund your vet bills up to the purchase price of your puppy if you encouter a hereditary problem that could have been prevented with better breeding. Has never happened and it is unlikely that you are the first case because we breed accordingly.
Our Pug puppies leave paper trained/partially housebroken and have been introduced to an open crate in which they sleep with their mom and their litter mates.
We are dedicated to maintain and improve upon the breed standard of both our breeds and have serious aspirations to do what few breeders achieve and most can only dream of: to actually make a contribution to the improvement of our second breed, the Havanese. We are focussing on the betterment of one of the very few -if not the only- negative traits of the Havanese breed, which is the matting issue and hope to soon produce Havanese puppies who will need to be brushed once a week or less -as opposed to an almost daily basis- in order to maintain a show coat, and very possibly even a non-matting Havanese sometime in the future.
Our main goal for our Pugs is to increase the gene pool of PDE free dogs and we managed to produce 100% PDE free offspring for over 25 years, long before even a test was available. It can be done. We do not produce scrawny looking, bulgy eyed pups who pop an eye out of the socket when they jump of your couch or when you pull too hard on your leash. 
We do not ship but are willing to travel a reasonable distance in case that is an option.
There are pictures on the photo page of our adults and previous litters but you will search in vain for cute pictures popping up all over the place just screaming to "buy ME". If pups are available, I can send you current pictures by email.
Too many breeder-websites out there have little to offer, except for cute little pictures and animations. But this site is for folks who take adopting a puppy serious. Very serious. So that the fun and joy will be lasting.
And maybe I can make all those of you who will not adopt from us for one reason or another, aware of the traps you may be about to fall into (and after all: there is only a handfull of pups available here anyway).
You may not feel that champion lines are important for your pet and you can expect to learn in the following why they are and what it says about your pet and your breeder.
To find out more
about our somewhat different breeding philosophy, our careful line selection, sozialization process, the perimeters of our lasting success, our tremendous dedication to our dogs and clients, what they have to say about us and why they always come back, as well as our business practices, please use the links on top of this page and contact us in case any questions remain unanswered.
The best place to start is the <Breeding philosophy> page. Then you may want to move on to the <Pricing> page to find out why you found a great deal here, compare us to the competition in the <Breeder Meter> section and you may want to read some customer testimony in our section, backing up all the great things you read before. If and before you are considering a Designer dog, a mutt, right, please check out the <Designer Dog> page. Finally, you may want to start the application process with our <Questionaire>
To all the backyard breeders and mills who so ambitiously copy sites like this one: you can steal the words but you can't steal the bloodlines and you can't steal the fruits that result from hard work, years of experience, and the passion we invest in what we do. Your deception, ignorance and ruthlessness will not go unpunished in this life nor the next. Shame on you for what you do to the animals in your care and the damage you inflict on the breed. And PLEASE: if you do have to copy my site because you are too stupid to come up with your own brain child, at least change some words around. There is a copywright, you know.....

    Pug Puppies
    Chinese Pug dogs date back some 2000 years to ancient Chinese dynasties who kept these dogs for their royal entertainement. Traditionally, and way into the late 18th century, the Pug was more elongated, overall larger, and had a less pertruding face. In the US, the breed standard was revised in 1991 and the standard size ranges now from only 13-18lbs whereas in most other countries, the old standard of around 18-23lbs is still in place. The Pug is known for his antics, his occasional stubborness and his readiness to get into trouble, particularly if food is involved. They thrive on human companionship and have an often goofy sense of humor. Our socialized puppies are bred to not only win dog shows, but to also win your heart. Our dedication to our dogs’ lifelong wellbeing has our sales contract contain a “no shelter agreement.” If you are unable to provide for the dog, you must find a good home or return the animal to us, so that we can do so. We understand that unforeseeable circumstances can arise, but our dogs’ welfare is of the most importance to us, even after they leave our care. Unfortunately, Pugs are not the most sound breed and despite a new PDE test, many Pugs still succumb to this fatal disease, to name just the most concerning hereditary problem. This is why it of the greatest significance to choose an expert breeder like Camelot Pugs so that your dog has the lowest risk possible of having any of these health problems. You can rest assured every dog you get from us is very healthy. Our dogs are among the best in the country. Contact us today to find out how you can be the proud owner of one of these quality puppies!

    Pug Breeder
    There are two kinds of people you will come across during your search: breeders and pet producers. Though both may be similar in concept, they could not be further apart in reality. A pet producer does not care or know much about quality, stooping to breed dogs simply for the monetary gain in selling pets. We at Camelot Pugs pride ourselves on the passionate act of being breeders. Breeding is so much more than simply creating a new breed or maintaining a lineage. Proper breeders need to not only know their dogs inside and out, but also need to be educated on creating a healthy lifestyle for each dog’s long-term wellbeing. This means knowing the difference in different brands of food, how certain diseases can be avoided, and how to properly maintain a breeding ratio. Our puppies descend from among the best lineages. Breeding with the same dogs for multiple generations now, we know the full history of the puppy you would take home, as well as their generational lineage. This ensures for you that your puppy will not be susceptible to any hereditary diseases that can jeopardize its wellbeing.

    AKC Pugs
    As an AKC member in good standing, we pride ourselves on the ability to breed high-quality, healthy animals, generation after generation. This is why we do not classify ourselves in the business of sales, but rather the industry of loving. Any amateur can raise and sell a dog, but we are dedicated to finding the best homes for our pups. The long-term wellbeing of every puppy, even after it leaves our home, is the single most important factor when considering our potential customers. As an AKC breeder, we are dedicated to providing puppies that meet the highest of standards. This goes much further than simply proportions, wrinkles, curly tail and all the other obvious basics you expect from the breed. Proper selection of the parents, along with a sophisticated early socialization program to create a sound disposition and negate the troubled waters of a Pugs genetic code in regards to health issues are paramount. These very high standards in regards to breeding, raising, and placing guarantees that the puppies will be happy for the duration of their life. All of our puppies are veterinary inspected Breeding means making the investment up front. We spend up to several thousand of dollars per animal to confirm that it is up to the highest standards. When other breeders pay a couple hundred of dollars per animal, the suffering of quality is strikingly apparent.
We care about your pets like they were still our own
