Female Black Desexed Pug 5.5kg
Microchip Number: #900113001713825
DOB: 29/06/2019

Yes it’s little me…
Cardi B….
The tiny 5.5kg black puggy…
And I’m always ready to party…
I’m always ready to party and have fun…
And yes I’m very fast and run rings around everyone……

I’m only 3 years young…
Now that Pug Rescue has turned my life around my best days are still to come….
I was breed with and passed through several homes before entering Pug Rescue care….
When I arrived, I was very hyped up, liked to scream and shout, wanted to rumble with everyone and badly struggled to breathe air…

Desexing, vaccination and a dental by Dr Bianka at Knox Vet was my first surgery… Then BOAS – Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome Surgery by Dr Ricky of MARS at Knox Vet including a nostril widening, tonsillectomy and to trim and thin the soft palate a folded palatoplasty… Followed by two weeks of hand feeding and resting now means that I can now breathe much more freely… Because I started holding my knee up and was in pain I’ve also undergone luxating patella surgery on my left knee… Dr Ricky and the Geelong Animal Referral Services Team performed a trochleoplasty, tibial crest transposition and lateral imbrication to stabilise my patella in place… 8 weeks of crating and leash walking rehab occurred and xrays have just been performed showing my bones have healed and my knee cap now moves smoothly in the correct place… I’ve been through Pug Rescue behavioural bootcamp as well… And now am very well socalised and no longer think I have to rumble and fight which is swell…

Play, play, play…
I like soft toys yay…
And wrestle and play chasey with my puggy friends everyday…
Walking the streets…
I proudly strut my stuff and tap my little feet…

So anyway…….
I hope to find a furver family that has a little puggy boy that will be my best friend and that will play……
And humans that will love me every day….
If you would like me to join your family please send an enquiry my way….
