When googling "pug puppy for sale near me," it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. When calculating the true cost of ownership for a Pug, the annual cost, also known as "upkeep," is frequently disregarded. Be sure to factor in the cost of food, vaccinations, heartworm, deworming, flea control, veterinary bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training, and supplies like a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys when creating your budget. All of these items can add up quickly, so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 to $2,000 or more for the first year and then about $500 to $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.
