RE108835
 
A princess if ever there was one….
Miss Aria likes to prance around and have fun….
And is excitedly now seeking her very own furever dad and/or mum…
 
Woo woo woo likes to say….
In her cute sassy way….
Is it time for walkies or dinner….
Or maybe chasey with puggy friends with Aria usually being the winner….
 
Over 2.5kg in weight lost…..
Which has helped a lot….
Along with Specialist airway surgery by Dr Ricky from MARS at Knox Vet – folded palatoplasty to shorten and thin her soft palate done, tonsillectomy and widening of her nares (nostrils) was done
Meaning she no longer struggles to breath when she runs around having fun….
A dental to give her fresh breath as well..
As having clean teeth is swell….
 
Aria has learnt to be sociable with other doggies and share…
Whilst in Pug Rescue foster care…
She now loves the companionship of puggy friends and no longer feeling the need to argue like she did with another female pug in her past life…
Which is something that got her into strife….  
 
Anyone interested in play fetch with me?….
Or maybe we can sit on the couch and just watch tv?
What about giving me a fruit or vegetable treat? 
I like carrots because they are sweet….
Anyone interested in adopting me to furever keep? 
 
 
 
Aria sleeps on an indoor doggy bed that she is happy to share with another pug.  She is also very happy to sleep/relax in a crate with or without another pug.
Aria is toilet trained.
Aria walks great on a lead and harness and isn’t reactive and is fine in the car.
Aria knows how to sit and wait and wait until told it’s ok to eat. 
Aria does like to try and tell animals off she spots on tv but this has been very much minimised in her foster home to no longer be an issue and she likes to seek out birds and possums, mice etc in the garden which again is not a big issues she is just more aware of them then other dogs are.

Pixie’s furever home wishes:

♥ OTHER DOG – NO! Pixie needs to be a single pug.  She is happiest when she doesn’t have to compete with other dogs. She will cause fights/redirect with other dogs in her household during high drive/excitement and food times and unfortunately this is not something Pixie can be trained out of.  For short periods of time like visiting dogs or holidays this can be managed successfully but placing Pixie into a home contains another pug/dog is setting her and the home up to fail and setting Pixie up for a constant state of anxiety.      
♥ HUMANS – Pixie is seeking humans that can provide her with strong leadership.  She is responsive to being shown the correct way to do things and with routine.  She needs a home that understand that she can be barky/reactive to some noises and birds etc but this can be minimised and whilst out walking and need humans that understand how to use treats and training distractions.  Pixie can never be allowed to become overweight!!!! 
♥KIDS – No! Pixie needs a home that does not have young children and will not have young children in her lifetime. 
♥ Pixie as with with all of our pugs requires secure brick, timber or colourbond fencing.
♥CATS – Dog savvy cats. Pixie has previously lived with a cat.
♥Pixie requires at least a 15 to 20 minute walk a day.
♥Not suitable for homes where she would be left without humans for 6+ hours a day on a regular basis.
♥Pixie absolutely requires air-condition.
♥Access to the inside of her house 24/7 and an indoor bed.  
♥Pixie needs a home with a small to medium yard but not a home that has lots of noises coming from neighbours, roads, schools etc.

Victorian Pet Exchange Register Source Number: RE108835
DOB: 11/08/2021

Hi I’m Betty Boop…
And yes I am very cute…
I’m a pug x poodle pup who loves to wrestle and play…..
And I can wear my hair in different ways…

I came into Pug Rescue’s care a few months ago because I missed out on learning appropriately…
Due to  being sold by a BYB to my well meaning previous family at just over 5 weeks of age unfortunately…
I thank my old family for knowing that coming into Pug Rescue care is the best thing they could for for me…

Pug Rescue has now taught me not to mouth and bite and I can now sit and wait and sit still…
I have learnt to socialise with other dogs and boy playing and wrestling gives me thrills…
Pug Rescue has helped me learn what I have missed out on…
And is exposing me to life and teach me right from wrong…

I love pottering around the house and yard and joining in…
Have you seen my toothy grin?..
Sometimes I help with the gardening….
By doing some plant pruning….

I absolutely love toys and absolutely love to play chasey and wrestle and play with my foster doggy siblings all the time…
I also love having cuddles and being told I’m a good girl and doing just fine….
I know how to sit and drop and I wait until I am told that I can eat my dinners too….
I’m also pretty good at holding still to have my fringe and face hairs trimmed so I see through….

Dr Laura at Knox Vet desexed me a little while ago and gave me my last puppy vaccination so all of my vet work is done….
And now it’s time to have fun….
And find myself a furever home that includes a doggy boy like me and a furever dad and/or mum….

Betty Boop is happy to be crated or sleep on a doggy bed.

Male Fawn Desexed Pedigree Pug
Microchip Number: #900079000517300
DOB: 03/12/2018
9kg approx
RE108835
 

Occy here to report I’m a good puggy boy…
Ready to fill my furever home with lots of puggy joy….
I love getting cuddles and pats from everyone….
And think that everyday should be filled with lots of fun…..

I know how to sit, stay and wait…
Which is apparently is great and I have now learnt how to have my face and ears cleaned calmly without working myself up into a silly state….
I missed out on a fair bit of socalisation of and play time in my first 2 and a bit years….
So I came to Pug Rescue not really understanding how to interact  properly with other dogs and being a bit reactive due to not understanding which manifested itself into a bit of fear…..
But Pug Rescue have been helping with teaching me how to interact nicely with other dogs and socalising me…..
And not only have I lost some weight I have learnt to share with my foster siblings and run and play wrestling and chasey yippy…

The best thing to occur during my time in Pug Rescue care…
Is being granted the wish to not struggle to breath air….
Just over 6 weeks ago at the age of 2 I couldn’t walk for more then 10 to 15 minutes without stopping and nearly collapsing which would cause quite a scare…
But now 6 weeks post specialist airway surgery and recovery I can now trot along for 40+ minutes enjoying the wind blowing through my hair….
At Knox Vet Clinic Specialist surgeon Dr Ricky of MARS used his skills to correct someone else’s unsuccessful attempt at airway surgery on me that I underwent last November before coming into Pug Rescues care….
Dr Ricky was thankfully able to somehow improve and widen what was left of my nostrils and performed a folded flap palatoplasty to shorten and thin my blob of a soft palate and a tonsillectomy to remove my enlarged tonsils all of which have now allowed me to gain more air….
Two weeks of weeks of strict crate rest, hand feeding and meds I underwent….
Then a slow build up of daily puggy life and exercise has made me a very happy and fit puggy gent… 

 VIDEO OF OCCY BEFORE & AFTER AIRWAY SURGERY

In the evening I like watching tv…….
And resting my head on a humans knee……
I am sure there is a perfect active furever home with a puggy girl out there for me…..
One that understands I am young and can still be a bit cheeky….
But is ready to have their lives filled with Occy glee……

Occy is crate trained and will happily sleep on a soft doggy bed with another pug or in a crate with another pug. 

Occy is toilet trained and will hold on until he has access to go outside.

Occy now walks well on a lead and harness and although he can be a bit excitable, reactive he can easily be distracted and redirected/reassured with treats .

Occy will sit and wait and sit and wait until told it’s ok to eat. 

Occy’s furever home wishes:

♥ Occy will not be rehomed as a single pug he has thrived in foster care due to having pug companions to not only play with but also teach him.  He must have a home with a desexed, well trained and very well socialised outgoing but non reactive healthy desexed fit female pug aged between approx 2 to 5 years old.  He is not suited to being an only pug and not suited to being placed with another male pug nor with another breed of dog.  
♥Occy is not suitable to be rehomed with another male pug/dog, as a single pug or with another breed of dog.
♥Occy is seeking humans that can continue show him good leadership and set boundaries for him.  Occy’s humans need to demonstrate they can calmly clean Occy’s face, ears, eyes etc as this is something we have taught him whilst in care.  Occy is quite a strong boy and if his humans allow him to struggle he will revert to his past life behaviours.
♥Occy would suit and actually love a home with dog savy high school aged kids.  He is not suitable for a home with young children nor for a home that will have future young children.  Occy needs stability. 
♥Occy with all of our pugs requires secure brick, timber or colourbond fencing that can not be seen through.
♥We are unsure if Occy is suited to a home with cats.  
♥Occy requires at least a 30+ minute walk every day.
♥Not suitable for homes where he would be left without humans for 6+ hours a day on a regular basis.
♥Occy absolutely requires air-condition.
♥Access to the inside of his house 24/7 and an indoor bed.
♥Occy would be best suited to family homes with larger yards.  He’s not suited to apartments, units, townhouses etc.  He requires fencing that can not be seen through and is not right next to a footpath etc and we would advise the yard area he has access to does not have fence lines that have neighbors dogs as Occy will fence run.

Medical notes:

Occy has undergone specialist airway surgery at Knox Vet Clinic.  Dr Ricky Cashmore of Veterinary Specialist Surgery Australia performed a folded flap palatoplasty to shorten and thin Occy’s soft palate, widened Occy’s nares (nostrils) and a tonsillectomy to remove Occy’s enlarged tonsils.

Occy desexed, C5 vaccinated, has undergone dental work in the past year, is microchipped & up to date with his worming & flea prevention.

Occy has been successfully treated for ear infections at Knox Vet.

Occy has undergone extensive behavioural training whilst in care including learning how to be handled and how to play and socalise.

Female Black Desexed Pug – 6.4kg
Microchip Number: #956000010871627
DOB: 23/12/2019
Victorian Pet Exchange Register Source Number: RE108835

Mia must confess….
She is a true little black puggy princess…..
Pitter patter go her little white feet….
Ready to jump on your lap for cuddles when you take a seat…..
But if there is fun to be had she’s off like a flash to investigate…
As she thinks joining in on everything is great…

Mia unfortunately missed out on learning a few things due to growing up as a single puggy during lockdowns…
In Pug Rescue foster care she has learnt to socalise and play with other dogs which has helped her relax and also calm down….
Mia absolutely loves to play chasey, wrestling and just delights in running around…
Toys are great fun to play fetch with and to shake…
She’s not quite sure still about how to play tug of war with other doggies but we are sure she will learn with the right furever puggy mate…
And boy oh boy Mia thinks that going out for walkies is great….
She can walk on and off lead for an hour or 6km+ at quite a pace…

Video of Mia walking here:  PugRescueVic on Instagram: “Faces smiling with glee.. Saying follow me… On the never ending Pug Rescue journey… Straight ahead no turning back… Helping repair flat…”

Mia says she’s lost a bit of weight….
And learnt that snuggling up in bed or on the couch to other puggies is really great…..
She is a very smart girl who knows how to go to her bed and also how to sit and wait and also drop and wait…..
Now she is ready to find her furever family who will treat her like a princess…..
As this puggy girl deserves nothing but the best….

Mia xxx

Mia is toilet trained and will ask to go outside
Mia sleeps on an indoor doggy bed that she is now chooses to share with another pug.  She is also very happy to sleep/relax in a crate with or without another pug.
Mia knows how to sit and wait and wait until told it’s ok to eat.  Mia can also drop and wait. 
Mia is great on a lead and harness however can become a bit overwhelmed with things she is unsure of such as kids running and screaming and bikes wizzing by.  With some positive redirection using happy words and treats this is easily overcome.
Mia is fine in a crate in the car or will sit on a seat with a doggy seat belt.

Mia’s furever home wishes:

♥OTHER PUG – YES – Must have a healthy male pug – desexed, well trained and well socialised, non reactive, non dominant, calm, healthy weight, aged between approx 1 to 4 years.  Mia has gained so much from living with other pugs.   She now enjoys the companionship as well as playing wrestling and chasey other pugs of a similar age to herself.  Mia is not suitable as an only pug (many of her behaviours that we have worked through were due to having been a single dog.  We will not place her back into the same situation of being a single dog).  Mia is not suited to being placed with another female pug.  Mia is not suitable to be homed with another breed of dog.  
♥EXPERIENCED PUG OWNER HUMANS – Humans that can continue show her good leadership and kindness and continue to expose her to out of lockdown life as we now know it.   Mia is seeking humans who can demonstrate with their existing pug that they understand what a healthy weight pug is as it would be detrimental to Mia’s health for her to become overweight.
♥KIDS – OLDER TEENAGE  Mia would best suit a calm home with older children who will not scream and run around which is a normal think for younger kids to do.  Mia finds younger children a bit overwhelming and doesn’t understand them.  She is not aggressive at all she just becomes scared/timid.
♥Mia requires secure timber, brick or colourbond fencing.
♥CATS – YES- Mia has previously lived with cats so would be fine in a home that has dog savvy cats.  
♥EXERCISE – Mia requires at least a 30 to 40+ minute walk every day.  She can walk 6km+ with no issues.  She is great on lead but can be a little overwhelmed if a bike passes her.  She is also great off lead in a safe place.   She may still be a little unsure about things she hasn’t encountered before/ encountered many times like bikes, kids running and screaming etc. 
♥Not suitable for homes where she would be left without humans for 6+ hours a day on a regular basis.
♥Mia absolutely requires air-condition.
♥Access to the inside of her house 24/7 and an indoor bed.  Mia is happy to sleep in a doggy bed or crated with another pug.
♥HOUSE – Mia has a big bark so would be best suited to a larger house and yard.  She is not suited to a corner block or a house that she would have access to fence run.    

Medical notes:

Mia is desexed, C5 vaccinated, vet checked at Knox Vet, microchipped & up to date with her worming & flea prevention.
