Thank you!







Here under, please find Walk The Line Pug Ranch's well provided for Pug Adolescent & Adult Adoption Itinerary... Our Pug Adoption Application & Contract process from once you seek us out & until Adoption Contract approval, normally takes about (3-5 days)... So this being said, if you are late for a last minute gift or anxious to grab onto any Pug that is out there as soon as possible based on "sticker price" alone, Respectfully you have come to the wrong place! For a complete dissertation on our Standard Pug Adolescent & Adult Adoption Package, all of the Standard Items that are included and also the Optional Items that can be added, please scroll up and click on the browser tab "Adoption Pkge"...

   Our Pug Adoption fees are in general very reasonably competitive compared with equivalent status Pug Breeders, especially considering that most are simply on occasion inexperienced & uneducated back yard "Pug Sellers"... They are Not Reputable Breeders that work vehemently 24/7 in many various efforts to support & enhance the Pug Breed..! Even very few other "Pug Breeders" actually practice by the responsible methods by which WTL practices, nor do they have the background skills, Pug health care experience, dedication, etc. that is required in order to provide Healthy Quality & Properly Bred Immune Sufficient Pugs...  

   We want all our Pug Adoptive Parents to be well educated with the Pug Breed, & aware of all of the proper responsibilities that are involved in being a responsible Pug Adoptive Parent. We also want you to be comfortably satisfied with your Walk The Line Pug Breeders proper responsible practices, & General Pug Breed experience, so please take advantage of browsing our Comprehensive Pug Health Care Orientated Web Site & then afterwards feel free to ask as many questions as you'd like.  This being said, before you just purchase a Pug, whether it be from WTL or from any other source, please perform the proper diligence & most certainly do not base your decision on sticker price alone..! Walk The Line is passionately dedicated to all that we do in the Pug World & foremost is our responsible practices of Breeding for Healthy Quality & Immune Sufficient PureBreed Pugs, NOT Quantity! Our Post Adoption Support, Free Pug Health Care advice, etc. is never ending...


   As is standard practice in all that we do, our Pug Adoption Itinerary is well provided for with the focus being on mostly what is best for our Pugs Health & Welfare, starting now through to the Adoption fruition & hopefully for many years then after... We must first of all select a proper good family home through our application process that we feel confident will provide for a "Healthy & Happy Pug Environment"... Once that has been accomplished, a Pug Adoption Contract is entered into, a tentative Pug Adoption date/time/place is established, & then things get under way...

   First it is our task to get all of the proper Adoption Contracts & Pug Health Care Paperwork process underway which benefits both our Pug & the Adoptive Parents... Simultaneously, we must prepare the Pug (case specific) for his/her Adoption departure... This includes: Our final well educated Health Care Exam of the Pug; Scheduling & completing any necessary final Vet Exam or DHLLP &/or Rabies inoculations that have become due or will be shortly to become due; Scheduling & accomplishing  any optional Veterinary procedures such as Spay/Neuter, Microchip, etc. & concluding any healing process; Properly & intermittently segregate the Pug from any other Pugs, Mother, Siblings, Companions, etc for at least 48 hours in order to ensure that there are no final weaning food/water/emotional concerns... Finally work all of this into our VERY busy schedule (as Farmsteaders) & conclude any other misc that arises during the process...

   Simultaneously while we are preparing everything for the Pug Adoption on our end, we will have directed you to certain secure places on our web site... This will provide you with all of the adequate information that is required in order for you to properly prepare yourselves for your potential Pug Adoption pick up journey, further ready yourselves & prepare your home, etc., all for the Healthy proper & safe introduction of your new Pug into your Family... If you think that you already know everything that there is to know about Pugs just because you have owned a few or because you have studied the Pug Breed a bit, respectfully you are wrong. We have been studying, breeding, training, & providing all aspects of Pugs General Care & Health Care since the year "2000" and we are still learning new things every single day!     ___________________________________________________________________                                






1) We are searched out by whatever means that you found us, AKC Web Site, our WTL Pug Breeder Web Site, Another Pug Breeder Web Site that we are a Member of, etc. then we are contacted by you... 

2) We initially respond via email or telephone, whichever is most appropriate, (normally email). Then we have a brief initial share of information session with each other in order to mutually establish potential grounds to move forward...

3) If after that you are seriously interested in pursuing a potential Pug Adoption with us, you are then directed to please go to our web site: WWW.WALKTHELINEPUGRANCH.ORG                                                                                                                                                               Go to the browser tab "Adoption Apply" Please read, fill out, & submit the Pug Adoption Application form within, which is kept strictly private & confidential...This provides us with all of the information that we require in order that we can potentially educatedly orchestrate with you a case specific mutually satisfactory & "Happy Pug Adoption" which in turn benefits us all & mostly our Pug...

4) Normally within 24 hours after we receive your Pug Adoption Application:                

    A) WTL does a preliminary review of the information provided in order to make an initial determination as to whether or not WTL can either currently provide now, or potentially provide in the future, a Pug that fits properly into all of your criteria.             

    B) Secondly WTL also does a preliminary review of your overall habitat & life style in order to determine if there are any immediate stand out reasons as to whether or not a WTL Pug cannot be adopted into the situation.       

WTL may or may not then email you some brief questions, and once answered we would then notify you via email of our initial determinations. Assuming that both are positive then you would proceed to the next step. 

5)There is now also due an initial $100 application processing fee which we hold temporarily throughout the application process... This processing fee is 100% completely refundable to you within (24-48) hours via Pay Pal in its entirety, should we disapprove of your application for whatever reason, other than you having provided us with fraudulent information and/or your voluntarily withdrawing your application for whatever reason, once we have engaged in our very time consuming diligence of processing your information... If your application is approved, then next we would enter into a mutually fair & legal Pug Adoption agreement with each other, and your initial $100 application fee is applied 100% directly towads your Pug adoption costs... The application fee is submitted right on our web site under the browser tab labeled "Pug Pay", safely & securely via a direct link through Pay Pal by use of any major credit card... Our process includes us doing sometimes up to several hours of diligence in verifying your information and contacting all of your appropriate references, this process normally is completed within (24-48) hours barring any delays in contacting your references... We are unfortunately forced to hold this fee due to the fact that we are extremely busy (being owners of a small private farm which not only includes standard farm operations, but also includes our various Pug operations as well as our various Mini Horse operations)... Unfortunately there are many frivolous and irresponsible folks out there who submit our Pug adoption application without serious intent or means, or intentionally provide us with fraudulent information, which in turn costs us a lot of valuable time wasted in processing the information provided us...

This being said, if you do intentionally provide us with fraudulent information which we verify, or if your adoption application or interests in moving forward are voluntarily withdrawn for any reason after we have begun processing your application, then your initial $100 or $200 deposit is forfeited towards our administrative expense, and there will be no refund...

 *** Please note: Any/all of the information that you have provided us in your Pug Adoption Application will be used in us making our final determinations regarding your application approval/disapproval... Once our determinations have been made based on that information any/all changes that are in Particularly related to "Adoption Contract Options",  must be mutually agreed to and an overall re-evaluation of our original adoption approval will be reconsidered... If changes are requested after the application information has gone to contract, Walk The Line will make any contract changes, terminations, approvals, disapproval's, etc. as is governed under the contract and what we feel is in the best future interests or our Pug... If there has been no "harm done" or any costs incurred, a full or partial contract deposit refund will be fairly considered upon request, otherwise the full contract deposits to date and as are further described in the contract will be retained by us for damages or any other costs as is associated with the above... Thank you!

6) If at the time of application you have already seen a specific Pug on our web site or other means that you are already sure that you are serious of adopting, then it is highly recommended that you also place a (Pug Hold) security deposit on the pup... This deposit is $100 which in turn places a particular Pug on priority hold specifically for you, while we are processing your application... If your application is approved then the (Pug Hold) deposit is applied 100% directly towards your Pug adoption contract fees and it is not refundable. If for whatever reason/s we cannot approve your application other than for fraud, then again the (Pug Hold) deposit is returned to you within (24-48) hours via Pay Pal in its entirety...This (Pug Hold) deposit is also made securely directly through our web site under the browser tab "Pug Pay", via a direct link through Pay Pal by use of any major credit card... We have an excellent reputation as a small private PureBreed Pug Breeder and once our Pugs are advertised & released for either pre-adoption or adoption, they are normally contracted as fast as we can diligently work through the applications... We cannot otherwise hold any specific pup for anyone without a (Pug Hold) security deposit... Security holds that are placed on any specific pup are strictly applied first come first serve...

7) Once we have received your Pug adoption application and the application deposit, we then begin our diligence in processing your information provided... We may or may not contact you in order to mutually discuss your information in whatever detail that may be necessary... We may or may not contact any or all of the references that you have provided us, in order to discuss appropriately related things with them that are pertinent to us making a reasonable and fair decision regarding your application...

8) Once our diligence has been completed in processing your application, we then notify you of our decision and we either proceed forward towards a Pug adoption contract agreement or in the case of an adoption application disapproval, we do not proceed accordingly... Any/all application deposits and/or (Pug Hold) deposits are then dispersed as described above...

9) Then, assuming that we are going forward towards adoption contract and you have not already picked out a Pug As described above, we discuss Walk The Line's Various Case Specific Appropriate Pugs that are available for your adoption, post pics on our web site for your consideration if necessary, take whatever additional time is necessary discussing anything & everything to do with Pugs: IE:, Their proper selection to your personal environment, their proper future Health Care requirements, the proper financial, emotional, and home preparations that you must consider, the various Adoption Fees, etc etc. etc...

10) Finally if you are now prepared to, via the conclusion of our Pug criteria discussions, and by having viewed the case specific Pugs under the "Pug Gallery" tab on our web site, you make a Pug selection. (if you haven't already done so).  *** If at this point there still remains a struggle in making your specific Pug selection by previous means, There is now an option only on our Adolescent (16 weeks to 3 years/old) or Adult Pugs, (not puppys) if mutually agreed to, for making a site visit to Walk The Line's Private Farm. This is only after having thoroughly read & accepted the terms & conditions described in detail under the "Visitations" tab on our Web Site & signing a release of liability waiver.*** Then you would also decide what other (if any) of the Adoption Package Options that you would want included in your Adoption... These are all posted on our web site under the browser tab "Adoption Pkge", about half way down the page under the ADOPTION PACKAGE OPTIONS SECTION... We then also establish a mutually workable & tentative Adoption day/place/time, which all depends on your proximity & preference, our schedule, and the pups preparedness.... A total Adoption Package fee is then calculated & mutually agreed to...

* PUPPY HOLD* - Please scroll to the bottom of this page for the options and guidelines in regards to the WTL "Puppy Hold Policy"

11) Next a $100 Non Refundable Pug Adoption Contract Deposit (which goes towards your initial Pug Adoption package total fees) must be made again via Pay Pal, & we then prepare your Pug Adoption or Pre-adoption Contract, Health Guarantees, other associated documents, (case specific) from boiler plate forms... The adoption contract in itself is a legally binding & very mutually fair & beneficial document... The adoption documents are then normally emailed to you within appx. (24-48) hours... Once you receive them you have (24) hours to review and approve them... Should you not approve of the documents or the adoption contract for whatever legitimate reasons, even after discussion within the appropriate time schedule, then any/all application and/or pup deposits are now completely 100% non-refundable... At this point of the engagement, we have most likely already spent a considerable amount of time working with you and processing your adoption application information and any pup that we may have put on hold for specifically you, most likely could have been adopted to another qualifying home...The adoption process is then now halted and we part ways... Presuming that you do approve of the adoption documents as everyone always has, then of course we proceed forward...

*** / In the unlikely event that anything should ever happen to your selected Pug between the pre-adoption contract date and the actual adoption/possession date, then you would have the choice of either having your deposit refunded or another similar description Pug may be substituted and/or remedied, as is described in greater detail under the Pug Adoption, Ownership Transfer Agreement / ***

12) You then again go to our web site:  WWW.WALKTHELINEPUGRANCH.ORG and go to the browser tab "Pug Pay" & place any additional deposits that may be possibly due... Now once your Pug is picked out and your adoption contracts have all been drawn, negotiated & agreed to, a third and final pre-adoption deposit is due in whatever the amount would be in order to bring your contract deposits to date up to the total amount of 50% of the Pug Contract base adoption fee (without optional add-ons)...../ Another interim payment is normally due at a later date prior to the adoption transfer date, in order to cover any adoption package options that you may have chosen such as spay/neuter, etc...../ The final 50% of the base adoption fee contract balance would be optionally due at anytime prior to the actual adoption/possession date via Pay Pal, or at the actual adoption in cash only...../ The choice of the two payment options is up to your discretion...../  The deposit fees are all once again placed right on our site under the browser tab "Pug Pay" through the mutual security & convenience of Pay Pal, by use of any major credit card... Your deposit & guaranteed satisfactory Pug Adoption are secured by Pay Pal...

13) We then ask you to join our web site, membership is free... Once having done so, now as an "Adoptive Parent", you are given access to the security protected browser tabs on our web site, these are the Pug Health & Safety tabs that are encased in [brackets]... We then direct you to these tabs & other various locations on the site that will provide you with all of the information that is necessary in order for you to properly prepare yourselves & your home for a successful Healthy & Happy Pug introduction into your family home (including the preparedness of choosing & ordering your Pug Chow)...

14) We then go through the standard diligence of properly preparing our/your Pug for his/her Adoption as already described above in the introduction... In regards to adoptions that involve "Puppy Pre-Adopts" (pups that are less than 9-10 weeks old ), or adoptions that involve any optional Veterinary procedures such as Spay/Neuter, Microchip, etc., the adoption preparation time is obviously extended accordingly, case specific... Also in such scenarios  there will be additional progress payments that are required along the way, in order to compensate for the extended circumstances, again case specific...

15) All things are finalized on both of our ends and we both proceed to the the Adoption according to the plans that are finalized... You have the option of paying your final Pug Adoption balance either at any time in advance through Pay Pal, Google Wallet, or at the actual Pug Adoption in cash... There are currently no other options!

16) We meet, you examine your Pug to your satisfaction, (remember it's Health is already guaranteed in the Adoption Contracts that you have already received), we have a Pug Health Care dissertation, etc. etc. etc.

17) The hard copies of all of the Pug adoption documents are mutually finalized, endorsed, & dispersed... The Pug from this point forward has now officially transferred ownership from Walk The Line Pug Ranch to you as the new adoptive parent/s, and all of the responsibilities that are associated with it accordingly...

18) From this point forward throughout your Pugs life, we or our already established future family successors & our Comprehensive Pug Health Informational Web Site, will be there for you & our/your Pug for any assistance, guidance, free Health Care advice, etc. etc. etc. that you request... Please also note that as a "Responsible Breeder" we ask that at any time in the future & for whatever reason that you may become unable to care or provide for the Pug, PLEASE contact us first if you do not already have another properly qualified Caretaker... 


   This concludes Our Adolescent & Adult Pug Adoption Itinerary. Should you

have any additional questions please let us know...



Thank You!

Walk The Line Pug Ranch



Puppy Hold Policy 

Puppy Hold: All Of Our litters have a Tentative final adoption release date from birth, which is what we post on our web site as well as what we provide our pre-adoptive parents in pre-adoption contractual commitments? This is all based mostly on birth weight, minimum of a 4 # adoption departure weight, completion duration of the weaning process, completion of all standard Vetting procedures, weather forecast for adoption trip travel purposes, etc? The minimum age that we will release a litter for take home adoption is (63 days or 9 weeks post whelping)... Normally between the 6th - 8th week post whelping, we can make a final determination as to whether this date is practical or whether it may have to be postponed, for how long, & for what reason... Once we do actually Finalize an adoption release date, (which for mutual convenience will normally be on a weekend), it will be posted on our web site and all contracted adoptive parents will be notified in order that adoption pick ups can be arranged? Standard procedure is that if we are able to announce the final adoption release date at least (7) days in advance, then there would be a (3) day grace period?  If we cannot provide the final adoption release date at least (7) days in advance for whatever reason, then there would be a (7) day grace period? Hence, either way there is a (10) day period that the PAO has in order to make all necessary adoption pick up arrangements? Should the PAO not manage the adoption pick up by this date for whatever unacceptable reason, then the ownership & boarding responsibilities of the pup will now be that of the PAO and any remaining balance that is due under the original adoption agreement must be remitted via Pay Pal within (24) hours? Should Walk The Line And the PAO  mutually agree to an alternative date (case specific, and obviously unexpected short term emergencies are acceptable), then the new agreed to date will govern? If a new adoption date cannot be mutually agreed to then the original Final adoption release dates as described above will stand?

From this point forward, due to the liability that WTL is now under to care for the PAO?S Pup and all of the associated costs of general & health care, food, bedding, laundry, socialism, labor, etc? Walk The Line charges a $20 per day fee for this service. Included is our complete 24/7 constantly & safely monitored care, Taste Of The Wild Age Appropriate Chow, fresh water of course, weather monitored daily exercise & socialism, private bed/crate area which is always kept properly clean, on premise Very well trained General Pug Health Care & well learned private Veterinary care, etc... In the event of a Veterinary Emergency, WTL will act in whatever fashion that we feel is necessary in order to get the Pug to a case appropriate Veterinary Medical Center ASAP, which is of course based on the nature of the emergency... The Pug owners will be responsible for reimbursing WTL for the emergency Vetting fee within (24-48) hours after occurance... Any ongoing Vetting fees shall be the responsibility of the owner to handle directly with the Vetting Center that is involved or at your own Vetting Center, case specific... All above such accumulated boarding costs must be made sometime prior to the actual adoption date via Pay Pal or on the actual adoption pick up date via cash?

Walk The Line will also hold a Pug pup for a reasonable amount of predetermined time after the litters scheduled final adoption release date, in order to best enable the new Adoptive Parents to be properly prepared for the Pugs arrival... Examples are: home renovations, vacations, surprise Pug present special arrival date, transportation problems, time for scheduling off of work, weather, etc... The associated liability & boarding costs will be the same as are described above?

Walk The Line has our own very well learned & privately practiced non licensed basic Veterinary care on premise at most all times. We we can only provide this our own Pugs or PAO'S contracted for Pugs that are still boarding with us as a courtesy, for free of charge, with no consequence of any potential resulting liability to WTL whatsoever? A large portion of our Farmstead indoors & outdoors environment has been specifically & appropriately well built & safe as a proper Pug safe well socialized environment, however accidents can & still do happen! 




    Please note that from the adoption date/place/time going forward that you are now the sole responsible owner/s of your newly adopted Pug? But also please remember that Walk The Line Pug Ranch will always be there for the life of our/your new Pug in order to assist you in any free Pug Health care assistance, guidance, information as we are best able to provide, which we feel is in the Pugs best interests? We strongly recommend that you contact us at any time 24/7/365, post adoption for any free Pug Health care advice, assistance, questions, etc. in regards to our/your new Pug. We are also familiar with many Licensed Veterinary practices throughout the North East that we can refer you to should your Pug require any Emergency and/or long term Veterinary assistance...

   We have been Studying Pug Genetics & General Veterinary Health Care, Providing Our Own Pugs General & Veterinary Pug Health Care, (in addition to our own privately hired NYS Licensed Veterinarians), Breeding, Whelping, Training, Private Pug Rescue, & otherwise working with most any/all General Pug beneficial practices in all aspects as we have been able to provide in order to benefit the ?Pug Breed? for (14) years?

   Please also remember that as we have already recommended in all of our previous various correspondence, to always now & in the future look to our comprehensive Pug Health Care Orientated Web Site as an invaluable source of Pug General Health Care & Beneficial Information? We are constantly adding to, expanding, and upgrading this information content as future beneficial changes arise?
