Next was specialist airway surgery at Southpaws Specialty Surgery for Animals to end her huffing and puffing and gasping for air…
A folded palatoplasty to shorten her long soft palate, a tonsillectomy to remove her tonsils and widened her stenotic nares (nostrils) was done…
Two weeks of healing with strict crating and handfeeding soft food and medication by foster mum…

When you are told to act natural and grin....
But are not sure what is happening...
So you try to look tough, handsome and buff...
Which is kind of hard when you are naked in the bath covered in bubble stuff...

Many thanks going out to...
Our amazing supporters that help us continue doing what we do...
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Recently of our wonderful adoptive mums Toneya recently reached out to ask...
If we needed any physical goods to help us continue with our daily rescue tasks...
She then kindly purchased and donated a brand new and much need filing cabinet along with essential office supplies....
When it was delivered James here couldn’t believe his puggy eyes...

Another wonderful adoptive mum....
Catherine launched a fundraiser for her birthday and was able to raise a $350 sum...

Your monitory donations big and small we much appreciate...
As we always have big medical bills to pay especially of late...
Two more of our wonderful adoptive mums Jessica & Cath often deposit a few hundred dollars into our bank account which is great...

Our website has details on how to donate and also a current list of physical essential rescue items the pugs would be grateful for...
Little James says he is hoping that someone could gift him a special physio therapy balance disc to help him strengthen his muscles and keep him on all four paws...

ANNIE -
Annie is a good girl with a heart of gold…
She’s just learning about how great it is to hang out inside a house and that walkies are actually not that scary all at the age of 3 years old…
A cross between a cavalier and a pug….
Annie melts into you and goes all floppy like a big teddy bear when you pick her up for a hug….

With big pleading eyes….
She is learning not to be timid and shy…
Annie gets excited when it’s time to get up…..
And bounces around like a big pup…
Her foster mum has taught her to sit and wait….
Sometimes Annie will also drop and wait which we think is great….

An extremely smart girl Annie has now been desexed…..
And can’t wait for what’s to come next…
She loves soft toys and grabs them and carries them around with much joy….
She also loves a game of wrestling and chasey especially with her foster brother who’s a cheeky pug x boy….

Snort snort snort Annie goes…..
Through her squished nose…
First to seek out and report possums or birds in her foster homes yard….
Annie asks if anyone needs a top notch security guard….

A furever home this sweet girl seeks…..
With yummy food and soft warm bed to sleep…
A confident pug x brother or boyfriend like herself for company would be great…
As she has always had other pug x’s as mates….
And of course humans that will treat her like a queen….
That’s Annie’s furever home dream….

POSSUM -
Hello Possum...
In Pug Rescue foster care this little pug x girl has truly blossomed...
As sweet as can be...
She now wags your little tail back and forth with glee...
And will sometimes woo woo woo whilst sticking her ears up and prancing around merrily...

Recently turning 2 Possum is learning that the big wide world is not that scary after all...
She will now come to her foster family for pats and cuddles when they call...
Possum now loves jumping on the couch and snuggling in soft beds...
And after lots of practice has now learnt to sit and wait when it's time to be fed...

Desexing, umbilical hernia repaired, widening of your once tiny nostrils, dental and a vaccination at Knox Vet Clinic done...
Means no chance of pups, her tummy no longer has a lump, her breath is now fresh and teeth are sparkling and she can breath through your nose now and not struggle for air when she plays or runs..

Possum is slowly learning the joy...
Of playing with soft toys...
And having always lived with other pug x's she adore the companionship and takes comfort in her puggy friends in her foster home...
So she can't wait to find a doggy boyfriend or brother of her very own....

A little treasure if ever there was one....
Possum is excited about new adventures to come...
And hopes to soon find her perfect furever dad and mum....
