~ Walk The Line's Unprecedented Pug Puppy Pre-Adoption Program ~

I have started to write my testimonial five times now and each time I have another level of appreciation to add. I have now decided that I must get something in print to share with others who are looking for a reliable source to adopt a pug. It has been a remarkable and unique experience working with the Walk The Line family. They have been an invaluable resource in all things "Pug" - a wealth of information and knowledge that they so patiently and generously shared well before there was even a commitment to purchase a pug. I began my conversation with WTL looking for a healthy companion for my "rescue" pug who has many challenges. My little guy is riddled with all of the traits so typical in the majority of pugs who are bred indiscriminately. I am so excited that I have found a breeder who is solely focused on passing on only the positive attributes to this incredible breed of dog. Because of my experience and relationship with Walk The Line, I will most likely adopt two new Pugs!


  Welcome To;

What’s the difference between an Emotional Support Animal (ESA) and a Service Dog?

Emotional Support Animals (ESA) are animals that provide therapeutic benefits to their owner through affection and companionship. A Service Dog is specially trained to perform a task to help someone with a disability. A seeing eye dog is one example of a Service Dog. Unlike a Service Dog, an emotional support animal does not need specialized training to handle a task. Further, Emotional Support Animals come in different breeds and animal types and are not just limited to dogs, while Service Animals are either dogs or mini horses.




Pinocchio is a 1940 American animated musical fantasy film produced by Walt Disney Productions and based on the Italian children's novel The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi. It was the second animated feature film produced by Disney, made after the success of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937).
When the woodworker Geppetto (Christian Rub) sees a falling star, he wishes that the puppet he just finished, Pinocchio (Dickie Jones), could become a real boy. In the night, the Blue Fairy (Evelyn Venable) grants Geppetto's wish and asks Jiminy Cricket (Cliff Edwards) to serve as the wooden boy's conscience. But the naive and trusting Pinocchio falls into the clutches of the wicked Honest John (Walter Catlett), who leads him astray to the sinful Pleasure Island.
"When You Wish Upon a Star" is a song written by Leigh Harline and Ned Washington for Walt Disney's 1940 adaptation of Pinocchio. The original version was sung by Cliff Edwards in the character of Jiminy Cricket, and is heard over the opening credits and in the final scene of the film.

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 24/7/365 in the many various efforts which support, enhance & preserve the Pug Breeds Original Ancient Chinese PureBreed Heritage..! Even very few other "Pug Breeders" actually practice by the highly responsible methods by which WTL practices, nor do they have the background skills, Pug health care training & experience, dedication to the Animals and the Pug Breed in itself, 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 or convenience alone ..! What you may think perhaps be saving on an unhealthy or improperly Bred Pug will likely be an expensive and emotional path of Vet bills and constant stress over your Pugs well being... 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, life time custodianship, 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...  








                              PUG PUPPY ADOPTION ITINERARY;


1) We are searched out by whatever means that you found us,  WTL'S Pug Breeder Web Site, AKC, UKC, or other Kennel web site, Another Pug Breeder Web Site that WTL is a Member of, Referral, etc... Then we are contacted by you...

2) We initially respond via email for mutual convenience... Then we have a brief initial share of information/questions session with each other (via email), in order to mutually establish potential grounds to move forward...

3) If after that we have established grounds to move forward, & only if you are of serious interest in pursuing a potential Pug Puppy Adoption with us, you are then directed to please go to our web site tab: www.walkthelinepugranch.org/adoption-apply ...

Please read this page thoroughly... At page bottom, please fill out & submit the strictly private & confidential Pug Adoption Application Form via Computer (Not by cell phone)... This information provides WTL with all of the information that is required in order that we can potentially educatively orchestrate with you a case specific mutually satisfactory & "Happy Pug Adoption", which in turn benefits us all & especially our Pug Puppy...

4) Normally within 24-48 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 Puppy that fits properly into all of your criteria.


   B) Secondly WTL also does a basic preliminary review of your overall habitat, life style, vetting history, various references, certain other factors, etc. in order to determine if there are any immediate stand out reasons as to whether or not a WTL Pug Puppy cannot be adopted into your current situation.

WTL may or may not then email you some brief preliminary questions, and once answered we would then notify you via email of our initial qualification determinations... Assuming that both findings are positive then we would proceed to the next step which is to direct you how to take an initial preview of WTL'S well learned recommended Pug Vetting PPID Protocols, etc... 

The WTL PPID approach is generally proper education, practicing abstinence from the various source of disease or parasites, AAHA recommended Core Virus Vaccinations, regular Vet check ups & preventative blood tests)... All of which is to keep the use of any unnecessary chemically manufactured Non Core Virus & Parasite Prevention "Killer Drugs" to an absolute minimum... 

Once you have familiarized yourselves a bit with the WTL PPID approach, (which you can also share by choice with your existing DVM at this time or wait until the next step which is a telephone conference with the WTL technical representative), & should you totally disagree with the WTL approach, or if your Vet is not willing to participate, then there is no need for you to continue forward unless,  If you agree generally with the WTL approach and your Vet does not, then WTL will work with you in order to find a more appropriate DVM, should you wish to do so... WTL has several participating Vetting relationships already established across the North East which we can refer you to... If you generally agree with the more modern WTL Recommended PPID Vetting approach or this is all respectfully over your head, then we continue on with the conference upon you letting us know that you wish to proceed, & things will be then further explained in more detail during the conference.

5) We notify you of the current conference schedule with WTL'S technical representative... You select a convenient day & time slot, then email us back with your conference appointment selection... This conference is a sort of meet & greet affording both parties to ask any unanswered initial questions, go over any adoption process procedures, estimated time lines, discuss the potentially available case specific appropriate Pugs, (pending application approval), and further discuss in more detail the WTL recommended Pug PPID Vetting Protocols...  Once the telephone conference has been orchestrated, assuming that both parties are in accord to potentially move forward, we then go to the next step... This is now the onset of WTL'S diligence in the administrative processing of your Pug Adoption Application.

6) There is now also due an initial $200 "Due Diligence & Administrative Application Processing Fee" which WTL holds permanently throughout the application process & retains permanently, "No Matter What" at the sole discretion of WTL including Adoption disapproval for any sound reason/s whatsoever, especially any fraudulent information provided us, our disapproval of your preferred Vet's "PPID Protocol" and not being able to find another mutually agreeable Vet in your area, your disagreement with the terms of our well proven mutually fair & legal comprehensive Pug Adoption Agreement, buyers remorse, etc... WTL recommends prior to proceeding that you look at the "PPID Protocol" Tab on our web site, potentially discuss it with your Vet (if you are not familiar enough with these practices) in order to get your Vet's opinion as to whether they generally agree, disagree, and if they are comfortable enough with it to fill out our questionnaire and/or discuss the "Grey Area Protocols" in order to come to a mutual understanding of the Pugs case specific to be intended treatment protocol... Other than for Rabies vaccinations (which is the ONLY Canine inoculation required by Law), all of these other various Inoculation, De-worm, Parasite prevention alternatives can only be educated/recommended to the PAO by both the Vet and/or the Breeder... It is ultimately the PAO'S sole decision as to choose which actual regimen to provide the Pug once they become the owner...

Respectfully, let us make that clear... WTL retains this "Due Diligence & Administrative Application Processing Fee" permanently, "No Matter What"... WTL is dedicated vehemently to the care of Pugs, Horses, & various Farm Animals 24/7/365, we have not the time to waste especially for free... If for any reason whatsoever you feel that this policy is not fair or acceptable, respectfully halt right here and look for a Pug elsewhere, saving us both time and frustration...

The fee is submitted on our web site tab "Pug Pay" , safely & securely via a direct link through Pay Pal by use of any major credit card or your own Pay Pal account...

This fee goes towards the extended time that WTL spends:

Orchestrating and coordinating all to do with your adoption;

Processing your application which includes much administrative due diligence;

All associated comprehensive Communications throughout the adoption process;

Your "Exclusive Puppy Hold" benefit/comfort/security of having either a pre-adopt puppy spot held open, or an already born puppy picked out by you & placed on hold potentially & specifically for you;

WTL establishing your Pugs initial case specific recommended "PPID Protocol" with either your preferred Vet or another mutually satisfactory Vet within your geographic location;

Preparing & providing all of your Pug Adoption case specific Contracts & Documents, Health Guarantees, Pug Health care Guide, etc;

Whatever other Admin WTL has to do within reason to accommodate a potential Pug Adoption...

If as is hoped for, your Pug Adoption Application is approved, then this "Due Diligence & Administrative Application Processing Fee" is automatically converted into an "Earnest Deposit" and then applied/credited 100% directly towards the total costs of your Pug Adoption Package... 

7) Next once WTL receives the initial $200.00 Admin Fee, we would enter into a "Pending" mutually fair & legal Pug Pre-Adoption agreement with each other... The WTL "Due Diligence" process is now engaged and is normally completed within (3-5+) business days barring any delays in the various Communications procedures involving any 3rd parties, Vets, references, etc...  WTL may or may not contact you &/or your various references throughout our diligence as we require for any additional information, clarification, discussion, or supporting documentation as is case specific...

8) Now once WTL'S diligence has been completed in processing your application, we then notify you of our decision and we both then either proceed accordingly towards a "Permanent" Pug Puppy Adoption or Pre-Adoption Contract Agreement, or in the case of an adoption application disapproval we provide you justifiable reason/s and we do not proceed accordingly... The "Due Diligence & Administrative Application Processing Fee" &/or any other deposits on hand are then dispersed as described above or within the Pug Adoption Contract Agreement... 

9) Then, assuming that we are mutually going forward towards a permanent Pug adoption contract agreement and you have not already picked out a Pug Puppy as described above, we discuss WTL'S various Case Specific Appropriate Puppies that are available for your adoption, (or will be made available after whelping), 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) Now if not already done so, and if you are now prepared to, via the conclusion of our Pug Puppy criteria discussions, and by having viewed the case specific Puppies under the "Pug Gallery" tab on our web site, you make a Pug Puppy selection. (if you haven't already done so). 

*** / If at this point there still remains a struggle in making your specific Pug Puppy selection by previous means, There is now an option only on our Adolescent (14 weeks to 3 years/old) or Adult Pugs, (not puppies) if mutually agreed to, for making a site visit to Walk The Line's Private Farm in order to pick out your Pug in person. We do not allow visitors from the outside world to see/handle our puppies due to them not having received all of their "Puppy Shots" yet and the risk of contracting any potential Canine virus/disease, etc... Walk The Line Private Farm Visits also are only allowed via appointment &  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 / ***

Finally 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 overall preparedness, weaning completion, vaccinations, de-wormings, etc... Once an adoption date has been initially established it may be changed at the sole discretion of WTL for any reason whatsoever, normally having to do with the pups weaning completion or perhaps scheduling conflicts... WTL prefers that all Pug Adoptions are orchestrated at the WTL Pug Ranch, however in specific case of hardship or extended travel, or on occasion that the WTL Pug Ranch may not be available at the Adoption date pre-established at time due to other conflicting activities, WTL may be able to accommodate the adoption else where... If approved, on the road Adoptions scheduled within one hour of your Pug Puppy's WTL location are free of any additional delivery fees... Each additional mile is charged at a rate of $.75... Once all additional options are decided, a total Adoption Package fee is then calculated & mutually agreed to...

*** Please note: Any/all of the information that you have provided WTL in your Pug Puppy Adoption Application is kept strictly confidential & will be used in us making our final determinations regarding your application approval/disapproval... Once WTL'S determinations have been made final based on that information and assuming that the adoption has been approved, any/all changes & particularly changes that are related to "Adoption Contract Options",  must be mutually agreed to and an overall re-evaluation of our original adoption approval may have to be reconsidered... If changes are requested after the application information has gone to contract, WTL will potentially make any requested 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 or additions to the original contract incurred, there will be no additional fees, otherwise additional fees will be added accordingly... If a request for Adoption Contract Termination is ever submitted to WTL for whatever reason/s, a partial contract deposit refund will be fairly considered upon request depending on case specific circumstance or unexpected hard ship, otherwise the full contract deposits to date and as are further described in the contract will be retained by WTL for damages or any other costs as is associated with the above... Thank you!

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


11) MANDATORY WTL PROPRIETARY PUG HEALTH CARE GUIDE: At this stage of the process, once your Pug adoption has been approved, we then subsequently prepare your Pug Pre-Adoption or Pug Adoption contract documents, Health Guarantees, Proprietary Walk The Line Pug Health Care Guide, etc. (case specific)...  The Docs are emailed to you via PDF file and also printed out hard copy, put into a nice binder, & sent to you via US priority mail...This binder consists of your adoption contract docs which are drawn mutually fair and legal binding, your Pugs case specific Vetting records, your case specific Pug's "PPID Protocols", specific feed/water instructions, pre-adoption & post adoption specific & general Pug Health Care preparations and guidelines, etc... All in all a very comprehensive General Pug Health Care Guide of information that WTL has studied, experienced, learned, etc. while working with the Pug Breed among ourselves and along side our many various hired licensed Veterinarians, Vet Techs., various other Trained Vetting Industry Sources & Mentors, since the year "2000"... This Pug Health Care Guide which currently consists of appx. (160 pages), WTL provides in order to best ensure that our Pug Adoptive Parents are learned and properly prepared for your Pug adoption and afterwards life long care... There is a mandatory $100.00 one time fee (due now) for the guide which is a stand alone fee which is already included as a part of the Pug Adoption Pkge Fee... This fee is Not Refundable for ANY reason whatsoever once the PAO has received the PDF copy via email, final draft hard copy original in case binder will also be provided at the actual physical adoption transfer, at no additional charge... 

12) Once you receive all of the contract docs via email PDF file, you have (24-48) hours to review and approve them (barring extenuating circumstance)... Should you not approve of the documents or the adoption contract other than for substantial legitimate reason/s, even after potential modifications discussion with WTL within the appropriate time schedule, then the Pug Adoption Contract Agreement shall be terminated "For Cause"... The advance payments towards the "Non-Refundable" Administration Fees and the Pug Health Care Guide Fee shall also be 100% forfeited without recourse as described in paragraphs #6 & #11 above... At this point of the engagement, WTL will have most likely already spent a considerable amount of time working with you in processing your adoption application information and any Pug Pup that we may have put on hold for specifically you, most likely could have been adopted to another qualifying home... Presuming that you do approve of the adoption documents as everyone always has, then of course we proceed forward... 


***/ In the case of a pre-whelping pre-adoption contract: If your specific requested 'Pug Criteria" puppy is not born (example, you want a female and only males are born) you then would have 3 options: 

1) Choose another Puppy from this litter with other than what was originally requested criteria, assuming that one is available...

2) Float your Pug Adoption Contract Agreement & funds invested to date towards the next litter and maintain the request for what was your original requested Puppy criteria...

3) Opt of your Pug Adoption Contract Agreement by engaging in a mutually fair & legal "Contract Termination Agreement"... If you accept the termination agreement option which is time sensitive, within 48 hours of notice then the "Non Refundable" Administrative Fees and Pug Health Care Guide Fee shall also 100% be forfeited without recourse as described in paragraphs #6 & #11 above... 

If you do not accept the termination agreement within 48 hours of notice, then the "Contract Termination Agreement" offer will be rescinded and all dealings & funds already submitted, will revert back to the legal terms as are stated within the original standard WTL Pug Adoption Contract Agreement...

*** / In the case of a post-whelping pre-adoption contract: In  the highly unlikely event that anything should ever happen to your selected Pug Pup between the pre-adoption contract date and the actual adoption/possession date, then you would have the same 3 options as are described immediately above...

14) Once all pre-adopt pups have been whelped & stabilized, normally (3-7) days after birth we set up an initial pic/video gallery of your Pug Pup/s on our web site which you can view 24/7/365...../ The gallery is initially set up with just a few pics in order to not to upset the newborn & in order that the PAO'S can now select their pre-contracted for Puppy...../ Optionally, the pics/videos Gallery is continued throughout the (10-12) week weaning stages of the puppy, some of which include of the Dam & Siblings while at play and when nursing and also we try to capture special occasions such as: eyes first open date; first walking date; first wean from mom date onto puppy formulas; first actual kibble date; Etc...../

16) Finally all adoption dates, payments, preparations, travel arrangements, etc., are arranged & finalized between WTL and the PAO, we both proceed to the the Adoption according to the plans that have been mutually established... The PAO has the option of paying your final Pug Puppy Adoption balance either at any time up until (48) hours in advance prior to the actual Puppy Adoption/Transfer date, or at the actual Pug Puppy Adoption in cash... There are no other options!

Throughout the whole breeding, whelping, post whelping, & weaning stages WTL provides the utmost in preventative & necessary care for the Dam and the litter...../ The Dam always gets a minimum of one pre-breeding & one pre-whelping Vet exam (additional if necessary), & she always gets a minimum of one post-whelping Vet exam including a safety x-ray exam (additional if necessary)...../ As is standard, the pups are Vet examined (including first puppy shot - {DAPPv} at appx. 8 weeks...../ In certain cases,  earlier exams and/or shots are administered as is necessary...../ We try to keep the pups away from the Vets at early ages in order to prevent contracting anything contagious from there...../ The most deadly of "puppy killer viruses" Parvovirus can be picked up from infected Canine saliva, urine, feces, & it is even airborne and can be picked up from direct contact on human shoes & clothing.....! All of our pups that remain with us for whatever reason (after 8 weeks of age) get their 2nd puppy shot at 12 weeks and the last at one year from date of whelping...../ Our regimen after that (recommended by many of our Veterinary Mentors including Cornell University) is at three years from whelping & then every 3 years then after for life...../ NYS Rabies inoculations are administered by one of our licensed Veterinarians at the ages of 4 months old, 16 months from whelping, 52 months from whelping, and then every 3 years then after for life...../ We also during this whole early stages of life & weaning process, adamantly do not allow any non care-taking Humans and absolutely no other Animals to have any contact with our puppies, or our Dams, or our Dam/Puppy Nursery room...../ No one other than our Pug caretaker family members are ever allowed in the Nursery, nor can anyone else ever handle any of our puppies while they are still being cared for in the Nursery...../ This standard applies to all of our puppies up until they are at least (12-16) weeks of age at the conclusion of their puppy shots...../ The reasoning behind this is simply for disease prevention of our fragile young pups that are not yet fully inoculated & also in order to eliminate any unnecessary stress or disruption on the Dams and/or the puppies while they are within our "Kids Gloves" Nursery environment...../ Our Nursery is actually treated very much like a Hospital ICU and is also under 24/7/365 care & surveillance...../ The Dam is also kept apart from any other Pugs & Animals while in the Nursery, during later pregnancy through final weaning of the litter and all the way up until after (60-90) days post whelping in order to prevent any damage or rupture to the extremely fragile post whelping Dam's Uterus...../ The Dam even has her own private segregated indoor & very sheltered semi heated outside potty/exercise area...../ Adoptive Parents are allowed to visit us at anytime allowing for the above conditions and the policies that are described in detail under the above web site browser tab labeled "Visitations"...../

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 Puppy… 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.
