Pedigree: Pickwick Pugs includes only the finest pugs in our breeding program.
When you look through each puppy's pedigree you will find a sea of AKC champions. (The prefix "CH" stands for Champion, "GCH" for Grand Champion).
You will also recognize some of the most important names of pugs and breeders such as Hill Country, Tangetoppen, and Mianda and breeders of the pugs you see at Westminster, Crufts, and other major dog shows around the world.
Champions: Through our participation in conformation dog shows, highly qualified AKC judges have selected Pickwick pugs to be some of the best representatives of the breed. The AKC Champion and Grand Champion pugs we include in our breeding program have received recognition with awards such as "Best of Breed", "Best of Winners", "Best of Opposite Sex", "Winners Bitch", "Winners Dog", "Best in Toy Group", "Best Puppy", "Best of Breed Owner Handler" and more.
We go out of our way to find the perfect stud, usually requiring great expense and travel. For example, GCH Mianda's Prince Charming at Vanity, in St. Louis, AKC Stud Dog of the Year in 2019, was the perfect sire for our "Thrill Litter" girls Lilly, Miss Dior, and Princess Buttercup. GCH Hill Country's Big Bang Theory (Bazinga) from Texas was the incredible sire of our Lemaitre Litter as well as our boy Robert. Bazinga is also the father of of "Biggie" pug, who has won more best in shows than any pug in history.
The famous Tangetoppen line is represented with the sire of our "Annie" (Zobear's American Idol, #1 Winner of Limited Dog class at Crufts, International Champion UK and Dutch Champion, IR Champion, and Res Best male European Dog, "Tangetoppen's Take a Hint" (Tino)
