I have always loved dogs, I remember thinking as a young child after gazing at a young litter of puppies I want to raise dogs when I grow up , not I want to be a doctor or a lawyer or travel the world. I want to raise dogs. I started in toy poodles over thirty years ago and was successful in producing quality red toy poodles that could compete with the blacks and whites in the show ring. As the years went by I decided I no longer had the time to keep a poodle in show coat. I started looking at other breeds and was smitten by the personality of a neighbor's pug. This little dog was smart, a little stubborn, and always in a good mood. I then started researching the pug breed in earnest.
Am/Int'l CH Sherfame's Ikon O' Bre-Z Manor CD ROM was my first show pug. Ikon has produced 17 Champions and is behind most of my line. The Bre-Z Manor line has produced 62 AKC Champion pugs as of March 2021. When it comes to selecting families, I like to keep puppies close to home so that I can watch them develop; this is a very important step in my breeding program.
Like so many others, I believe responsible breeders also rescue. I am one of the official puppy raisers for the DFW Pug Rescue, taking in soon to whelp pugs, providing them with good nutrition and a safe place to have their babies. The pug mothers are always so thankful; you can see it in their eyes. I am also a groomer for a veterinarian. When I rescue mothers to be the puppies are able to come to work with me to either be watched over or be socialized. Everyone there loves Pugs!

As a responsible breeder, I do health tests on my pugs before breeding them. Bentley tested N/N "negative" for the devastating disease Pug Dog Encephalitis, commonly called PDE. As a potential pug puppy owner, you will want to know that the breeders you contact are doing genetic tests for PDE on any dogs they breed.
Pug Dog Encephalitis: Commonly called PDE, Pug Dog Encephalitis is, as the name implies, unique to Pugs. Little if anything is known as to the cause of PDE, which is essentially an inflammation of the brain. PDE tends to affect young to middle aged Pugs and features seizures as its primary symptom. Lethargy or listlessness and loss of muscle coordination can precede the seizures. Accompanying seizures are several symptoms ranging from aggression to pacing in circles to the Pug pressing its head against objects such as walls and people.
