The following are letters from the families that have
taken our puppies and accepted them into their families.
I would highly recommend purchasing your new pug
addition from LeeAnn . As you can see from the photo, my little guy,
who we call Vernon, is pug perfection ! When I decided I needed (I was
beyond simply wanting one!) a pug in my life, I began researching
online. I found a list of breeders, and began making countless calls
and numerous emails. This proved to be frustrating and disappointing.
Either they wanted thousands for their pug, who they claimed had
“champion bloodlines”, also telling me they preferred to sell only to
those who would show. I just wanted a little flat-faced bundle of joy
to cuddle with. Then there were the breeders who lived in Arkansas, or
a state similar, who
would ship their pug out, not to mention the fact they bred not only
pugs, but also several other breeds. This seemed sketchy.
came upon LeeAnn’s website, A Bit Pugish. I left her a message, not
thinking too much about it. That evening, I received a call back from
her. Right away, she put me at ease with her friendliness and
down-to-earth nature. I asked questions, and she answered them in a
way I not only understood, but also made me feel like she knew what
she was doing. She had two black puppies available. She told me she’d
take them to her vet the following day to get a full physical exam. We
made plans to meet at a halfway point, which happened to be at her
drive wasn’t bad at all, maybe because I had pugs on the brain, and it
seemed I arrived in no time at all. I knocked on her door, and she
welcomed me in. Immediately I was greeted by a huge pug smile,
followed by dozens of pug kisses. Within minutes I realized LeeAnn
didn’t just breed pugs; she LIVED pugs. Now that I am the parent of my
own pug, I realize the difference between someone who calls their pug
their dog, and those who consider their pug a part of the family.
LeeAnn is the latter.
introduced me to each of her pugs, most notably Tara, the mother of
the litter, as well as her friend’s pugs, and her mother’s pug. I was
in pug bliss, pug-o-rama, pug utopia, and if I had even an inkling of
hesitation about bringing a pug into my home, that all went away right
then and there.
I decided on
the all black one (the other had a cute white stripe down his chest),
which took a matter of minutes, but didn’t leave the house for
probably another hour or two. LeeAnn and her family sat with me, and
filled me with more information than I could have wished for. They
gave me advice on cleaning my puggie’s skin folds (complete with a
demonstration), as well as recommendations on nail trimming (I got a
demo on that too !). They mentioned the “inverted sneeze”, warned me
of vets who viewed pugs as a way to make some big bucks, and made sure
I knew to get my puppy in to see a vet ASAP for his shots.
feeling great; I had acquired a fur baby of my own, as well as a new
set of friends, who even offered to pug-sit for me if I were to go out
of town. Before I left, after many hugs, LeeAnn’s mother (who as I
mentioned is a pug parent herself) said to me, “Well, it looks like
you’ve been Pugged !!!”. Indeed, I have been. Hey, LeeAnn,
put me on the list for your next litter !!!
I am writing this letter in recommendation of LeeAnn Hoyt Lambert. Her
services as a breeder are outstanding at best. When I found LeeAnn
through a website that searched for breeders of pugs, I was excited
just from our conversation. She is such an
enthusiastic and loving young woman. She truly enjoys working with and
creating a loving environment for the animals that she breeds. LeeAnn
treats her pugs as children not as dogs or just pets. She gave me a
new found love for dogs that I never had. When my own parents saw how
much I loved my daughter that I adopted from LeeAnn they were amazed
how I had changed. Sheba has changed my life and it is due to the
relationship that I developed with LeeAnn. She developed a
relationship with me as a parent that will be life long.
We talked the
entire time prior to the birth of our daughter and made frequent trips
to visit her through stages of our daughter’s development. Our family
has been blessed by the process and any family will be enriched by the
joy that the experience of bringing home a pug from the Lambert family
will bring. Not only are they the best looking pugs I have seen, they
are very healthy and I have referred many to her because of the
compliments my baby girl gets.
Thanks LeeAnn and Joe for the miracle of Princess Sheba Barnett that
you have blessed our family with. Continue to give other families the
joy that our family has experienced from your love for pugs.
