raynefreak: How do I know if my pug is actually pregnant?
My one-year-old female Pug was humped by my six-month-old male Pug. Everyone in the family thinks she is pregnant but I am not for sure. It's been around twenty-nine days since she was humped what symptoms of Pug pregnancy should I be looking for by now?

wow Please take her to a vet. I hope you get her spayed well you are there! One year old is way too young to have a litter even if she carries it to term chances are not great the puppies will be healthy. A six-month-old male is usually unable to create babies at that age. And to borrow your phrasing humping is more of a dominant trait than a sexual one. If your female is not in the heat I doubt she is btw

They don't show until about six weeks into the pregnancy. Right now you will just see enlarged breasts.
If they tied, then she is pregnant. If they didn't, then she probably isn't. It just depends on whether the male was mature enough during her cycle.

You can watch her tits to see if they are swollen. it takes 65 days to have puppies, but if she is you will be able to see her tits swell up this is a sure sign that there will be patters of little feet. she is really too young to be having pups. so if you find that she is pregnant be alert to breach birth pups and get her to the vet right away. you can lose her if a pup gets stuck. Good luck

You might try taking her to the VET?
Especially since they are way too young to be bred.

Well, hopefully, she is not pregnant. Why don't you take them to a vet and get them fixed?
I bought a 2-year-old Pug from a backyard breeder who didn't want her anymore. Turned out she was pregnant and nobody knew. Not even the vet knew when I took her. But when she got too big to jump up on the couch, we realized it. She had 5 babies but only 2 lived. They were so cute but after 8 weeks, I gave them to some friends because I couldn't handle 3 dogs by myself.
After this incident, I got her spayed. There are already too many unwanted dogs.

Hi, yes 12 months is young to have a litter of pups but for pugs if you are going to breed they should still be fairly young due to the chances of not being able to pass the pups naturally and it’s quite common for pugs to end up having Caesarian, to register on kc reg it states aslong as they are not less than 12 mths old to register a litter and no more than 2 litters per dog x

We do not Breed Puppies, ultrasound 25-28 days to confirm pregnancy, x-ray @ 7-10 days before she delivers, for a Puppy Count. This helps if there is a pending problem. Even Pugs 2+ years old can have Birthing Problems. Have your vet measure her pelvis, to see if she can Pass impending pups. 4.5-7 ozs Birth weight. Price C-Section with your vet, and appt. $800-1300 +aftercare. on appt.basis. Also 24hr. Emergency VET. Just in case it becomes an Emergency.
YOU ALWAYS PLAN AHEAD FOR A C-SECTION IN CASE THERE IS AN EMERGENCY. $1400-$3000. If your going to Breed BE RESPONSIBLE. AND WHEN THEIR PUPPIES, Separate Male to a separate room, if not Rotate Both Puppies, equal shared time in “Their Own Kennels. Put Male into Kennel, secure the Kennel, Let female out of the kennel, and remove from the area, to keep the male Dog, calmer.
DO NOT RELY ON DIAPERS, BELLYBANDS, OR PUG CLOTHES TO KEEP THE DOGS FROM BREEDING. THE OWNER IS RESPONSIBLE IF THE DOGS ACCIDENTALLY BREED. FYI, AKC States Dogs have to be a minimum of 9 months to the Birthdate, before they will recognize a Whelp Report, on the Mated pair, HOWEVER, THEY DO FROWN ON IT, IF ITS A CONTINUAL PROBLEM. AND IF YOU DONT HAVE MONEY FOR A C-SECTION OR EMERGENCY WHELPING ISSUES. AND VET APPTS. INVOLVED IN PRENATAL CARE, & AFTERCARE OF MOM & PUPS, 48 hr. and 6week check, worming pups every 2 weeks, with correct puppy wormer. Puppy Pads, Cleanup during weaning AND ARE WILLING TO GIVE UP YOUR LIFE FOR 4 MONTHS, I SUGGEST YOU LEAVE IT FOR THE PROFESSIONAL PUG BREEDERS.
THERE IS A COST TO TAKING PROPER CARE OF YOUR MALE, MOM, & PUPPIES, AND YOU CAN DO EVERYTHING BY THE BOOK. AND STILL, lose A COMPLETE LITTER, AND POSSIBLY YOUR FEMALE AS WELL. A PUG UNDER 2 Yrs. IS COMPARABLE TO ALLOW SOMEONE TO IMPREGNATE YOU 8- 12-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER. ASK YOURSELF, WOULD YOU LET THAT HAPPEN. GOOD FOR THOUGHT. PS THATS WHY PUGS, FRENCHIES, BULLY TYPE BREEDS ARE 1500 – 3000 A PUP.
Thank you for your very detailed and useful comment!
