" Three generations of Black Champions "



Welcome to SAXTEN Pugs, we hope you enjoy your visit, and come back and visit us again soon as  we are constantly updating the site. Don't forget to check out our new blog for all the latest show results & news.

SAXTEN Pugs was established in 1985 when we acquired our first Pug. Our son had joined the local soccer club and one of his team mates parents brought their Pug along to all the games. It was love at first sight for my wife, Anne. Many years previous, when I was a child, my mother had an acquaintance that owned two Pugs and they used to stand on a windy corner in the country town of Midhurst where we lived and talk. Being a child, the conversation did  not interest or include me, so I was left to talk to the Pugs! After all those years it was a delight to get re acquainted with the breed. It was only then did I realize how much I missed the snuffles and the snorts.

As breeders, we strive to improve every time we breed, every mating is carefully thought through .As far  as is possible we research  the ancestry of the dogs in a effort to eliminate faults." The Standard " always remains our ultimate guide. 

We enjoy showing our Pugs, and over the years have achieved a measure of success with a number of  Best in Show, All Breeds, Speciality Shows winners & by also by winning  Best of Breed & or Challenge at major shows including the Royal Queensland Show,Toowoomba Royal, Sydney Royal, Perth Royal, Hobart Royal & the Launceston Royal.

Our kennel has now found fame overseas with Champions in the USA, India & Malyasia, thanks to those owners for showing our Pugs to the rest of the world.
