Hill Country Pugs
Kristy & Kevin Ratliff
I, later joined by my husband, have been owned by Pugs since
1998.  We started out as a "Love Pug" family, but after
attending our first dog show with some Boxer friends in
late 2004, I was overcome by the beauty of the Pugs I saw
being shown in the ring.  They were like no other Pugs I had
ever seen before, and I knew at that very moment that I
wanted to be a part of "that world".  I also knew that being
in a wheelchair there would be obstacles I would have to
overcome.  However, those obstacles paled in comparison to
my hopes and aspirations.  So, in 2005-2007, with our desire
to enter the show ring, and having 110% commitment to the
betterment of the breed in our hearts, we welcomed into our
home our first show prospects from the most wonderful
breeders.  These long time, well respected breeders put
their faith in us, and entrusted us with a part of their years of
hard work and dedication to the breed.  We will be forever
grateful to those breeders, and will continue on with the same
hard work, dedication, and commitment to the breed.

As of January 2015, Hill Country Pugs has
to our credit!!  Thank you so much to those who believed in us,
and contributed to our start!!  We will be forever grateful...

We hope you enjoy our site, and let us know if you have
any questions about this wonderful breed that we are so
graciously owned by
