QUESTION: Do i have to buy a breeds license If i own 8 pugs and i will not breed any of them? what license do i need? I’m planning to buy 8 pugs pretty soon buy i am not going to breed any of them. They will all be neutered/spayed. I was told i would need a breeders license but I wasn’t gonna breed them so i wanted to what license i would need to own that many pugs. Thanks!
ANSWER: Before you think about the license have you checked with the city/county regulations on how many dog you can legally have where you live. For example where I live you can have 4 dogs in the city and only 3 dogs in the county without a kennel license. This is something you need to talk to your county animal control about. If you have proof of spay/neuter on the dogs then you may get by with just licensing each dog but without that you are considered a breeder. If you are over the aloted amount in the city animal control can come and take the dogs and give you a hefty fine.Out of couriosity why are you buying 8 Pugs if you aren’t planning to breed? Can you afford to spay/neuter 8 Pugs right away? Can you afford vet. care for that many dogs? Sorry but something isn’t adding up here.
