In addition to her extensive experience, Jane studied and worked in Colorado USA, and returning to Australia, held the head of nursing position with RSPCA Australia and later leading small animal veterinary practices in northern NSW.
Now a devoted pug advocate and registered pug breeder, Jane is dedicated to sharing the amazing life experience and happiness that owning a Pug can provide each and every day.
Jane’s own pugs are an integral part of her family and lifestyle. Jane also believes they are central to individual well-being and happiness.
As part of the PugLove service, Jane seeks to deliver dedicated, engaging and timely information for the Pug community. This helps create a comprehensive Pug network and a sharing of all there is know and love about the Pug babies.
“My family and I had a lovely experience when we adopted our baby violet , we can not express enough how much we appreciated the knowledge and passion Jane has for the breeding of her baby pugs. My daughter who is 11 was so excited that she was able to adopt her new best friend that she emailed Jane day after day with questions and updates to the point that I had to tell her to slow down, but not once did an email go unanswered and always sent with a professional and sincere answer.My family and I got to experience first hand the loving effort and personal care that Jane dedicates to each of her pug babies before they are adopted to live with their new families.Jane the Baker family thanks you from the bottom of our hearts as you made our 3 year wait to find the right friend an easy decision and your ongoing support is much appreciated. I would recommend you as a professional person and a loving pug breeder to any family that was interested in adopting a new best friend into their family.”
