Female Fawn ANKC Pedigree Desexed Pug
Microchip Number: #953010004335718
DOB: 13/01/2020

Cindy with the pretty eyes and waggliest tail…
Is happy every day without fail…
Enthusiastic and sweet as can be….
Cindy says she’s made it through Pug Rescue rehab and is ready for a furever family to adopt me….

Arriving into Pug Rescue care with absolutely horrendous horrible sounding breathing along with quite manic along with separation anxiety behaviour….
Cindy was undesexed, overweight, thought that dominating and fighting with other dogs was normal due to being sold as a pup into the same home as her littermate sister and therefore developing same sex and entire breeding dog anxiety and aggression along with terrible “littermate syndrome” so was thankful Pug Rescue became her savior….

1.5kg of weight loss (was 9kg now 7.5kg), desexing and vaccination performed by Dr Kent at Knox Vet Clinic have been achieved….
Dr Ricky and the Geelong Animal Referral Services Team performed BOAS “Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome” surgery involving a folded palatoplasty to thin and trim Cindy’s long and thick soft palate, a tonsillectomy to remove her enlarged tonsils and widened her extremely stenotic nostrils/nares which have all helped Cindy more easily breathe…
Lots of behavioural retraining has also occurred to teach Cindy how be calm and that she doesn’t need to fight with other girls and that she can enjoy socalising with everyone….
Cindy has now blossomed into a social pugerfly and is always up for fun….

Wrestling and chasey are always on Cindy’s mind…
She enjoys soft and chew toys and boy does she loves walkies time…
Cindy will sit and wait and do what’s asked…
Cuddles on a humans lap will make Cindy fall asleep fast…

Cindy can’t wait to find an active furever home with a young puggy boy…
And promises she will never stop waggling her tail with joy…
A few kids to play with Cindy thinks would be a great and a mum and dad that will treat her like a queen…
If this sounds like your home Cindy says please send an adoption enquiry to Pug Rescue from your screen….
