Female Fawn Pedigree Desexed Pug – 5kg
Microchip Number: #956000012983042
DOB: 15/01/2021
RE108835

Mindy here and I’m seeking furever love and fun….
In the form of a furever dad and or mum….
I’m just over one and my new life has just begun…
I’m expert at being cheeky, head tilts and wiggling my tail and bum…

I love wrestle with my puggy friends and do zoomies with them making silly sounds…
I have learnt how to sit and wait with my bottom on the ground…
I like getting picked up and sitting on laps…
I love having a cuddle and a pat…
And I am getting used to suburban life and sounds, I lived in the country previously, but sometimes still have a few moments of wondering what is that…

Pug Rescue has seriously done everything…
Including getting me to lose over 2kg so I am fit and thin…
I’m only a tiny girl weighing 5kg now…
I make all the puggy boys go wow…

I had my vaccination, underwent a dental, ear infection treatment and was desexed/speyed at Knox Vet when I arrived into care…
My breathing was quite bad and I really was struggling to get in air…
So at Patterson River Veterinary Centre Dr Alex of Melbourne Animal Referral Services/ Geelong Animal Referral Service Team performed BOAS “Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome” surgery involving a folded palatoplasty to thin and trim my very long and thick, soft palate, a tonsillectomy to remove my big tonsils, a sacculectomy to remove my everted laryngeal saccules and widened my extremely stenotic nostrils/nares…
Dr Alex said I had laryngeal collapse, so I am thankful that I was gifted my specialist airway surgery very quickly by Pug Rescue…
So that I can make the most of the airway I have to breathe through…

I crate rested and was hand fed soft food and meds for two weeks after my airway surgery which I complained a bit about…
Because I’m still only a puppy who wants to be crazy and run about…
I’m searching for a furever home that understands my long term needs and care…
And of course, can deal with some extra fibers of magical puggy hair…
I simply must have a puggy boyfriend in my new home..
Pug Rescue says if you don’t have one for me they have plenty of boys looking for furever homes and I can bring my own…
So if you think I am the one for you…
Please send an adoption enquiry through…

Mindy xxx

Mindy is toilet trained but may have accidents in a new home to begin with.
Mindy is happy to sleep in a crate with another pug or a doggy bed with another pug.
Mindy is getting used to walking on a lead and harness and does best with a confident walker besides her.
Mindy is fine in a crate in the car.

Mindy’s furever home wishes:

♥ OTHER DOG – YES! Mindy has always lived with other pugs.  Mindy is a very little very active girl and seeking a well socalised similar aged healthy small statured desexed male pug  (between 1 to 3 years).   Mindy will not be rehomed with other female pugs/dogs. Mindy will not be rehomed as a single pug. Mindy will not be rehomed with another breed of dog. Mindy will not be rehomed with a pug that is much older than her or with a much larger or overweight pug.
♥ HUMANS – Mindy is seeking humans that can keep up with her and that can show her positive leadership. Mindy is very much still a puppy and is still learning about the big wide world. Mindy will tatrum and be manic but will also be unsure and worried/overwhelmed by things.  Mindy absolutely can never be made by her humans to become overweight!!!!
♥KIDS – Yes.  Mindy would be fine with children who are respectful to dogs. Kids that scream and shout Mindy would find a bit scary.
♥FENCING – Mindy as with all of our pugs requires secure brick, timber or colourbond fencing.
♥CATS – Unsure but probably not.
♥EXERCISE – Mindy requires at least a 15 to 20 minute walk a day plus play times. Mindy is not going to be a pug that you take on big, long adventure walks.
♥WORKING HOURS – Not suitable for homes where she would be left without humans for 6+ hours a day on a regular basis.
♥Mindy absolutely requires air-condition.
♥Access to the inside of her house 24/7 and an indoor bed. 
♥HOUSE & YARD SIZE/TYPE – Mindy may be fine in a house/townhouse with a smaller yard but she does need somewhere to do zoomies.
