Rescue is a subject near and dear to my heart. I love purebred Pugs, and it breaks my heart when a Pug loses its home. No matter the reason, from landing in a shelter, turned in by an owner that can no longer care for them, or being in horrible conditions that require that they find a new home, I always do what I can to help that Pug find a new home.
Through the years I've served on the Board of rescue groups, acted as a foster home for seniors and special needs Pugs, volunteered at fundraising events, driven miles to transport Pugs, and adopted Pugs of my own.
I currently share my home with three rescue Pugs.
Arnie, 13 years old, was a stray that was picked up by animal control while he was running loose.
Gracie, 12 years old, was turned in by her owner because of behavior issues.
Kimchi, 6 years old, was turned into a shelter when she ate a dog toy and her owners couldn't afford the treatment for removing it when it obstructed.
Whenever I'm looking for a new Pug, I keep my options open to both a Pug from a responsible breeder, and a Pug from a reputable rescue group. I hope Pugs365 Magazine can help you when making the decision to bring a new Pug into your life.
