Ernie, meenie, miney, moe...
Please move over as you are squashing my toe...
I was here first mate...
So if you could shove over it would be great...
Move please...
I need to be closer to the heater for my arthritic knees....
Oh would you lads give a girl some space....
And stop trying to lick my face...

Ed (at the back) & his mates Diesel, Toby & Penny xxx

Ed at the back says remember me and my prosthetic leg and how I learnt to walk on it...
Pug Rescue helped me be the first doggo in Australia to get a special type of hind leg prosthesis 8 years ago and I use it everyday still for walking, running and whilst wearing it I can even sit....

❤️Martha & Juniper❤️

Currently still fighting for life in the care of our experienced neonatal foster carer...

Introducing the two remaining puppies from Monday nights rescue when we received an urgent honest plea for help and collected into our care a litter of five 24 hour old pug puppies that had been very sadly rejected by their mother...

Tube feeding, sub cut fluids, glucose, vet care, warming and our very experienced neonatal foster carer were sadly not enough to keep life going in Martha & Junioers 3 other litter mates who had all been without sufficient milk and warmth for too long before entering our care...

It’s now 4 days since Martha & Juniper arrived into care and they are still so tiny but are fighters...
They are being tended to around the clock with their intensive care including tube feeding which involves a feeding tub being inserted at feed times down their throats and into their stomachs to feed milk through...

Keep hanging in there little girls everyone is praying for you...
Whilst we were unable to save your litter mates we can in the future hopefully make your furever home dreams come true...

RIP
Fin 💔 Nora 💔 Esme

On Monday night we received an urgent honest plea for help and collected into our care a litter of five 24 hour old pug puppies that had been very sadly rejected by their mother...

Tube feeding, sub cut fluids, glucose, vet care, warming and our very experienced neonatal foster carer were sadly not enough to keep life going in 3 of the 5 tiny little bodies that had been without sufficient milk and warmth for too long before entering our care...
The 3 little souls, Finn, Nora & Esme, didn’t have enough fight left to keep going despite us given every chance to live, with them passing away peacefully on Tuesday morning...

This is the reality of rescue...
That no matter what you do...
Sometimes happy endings don’t come true...
If only this and if only that....
Sometimes all you are left with is that you tried and to make peace with that fact...

Little ones it’s time to fly high...
And watch over your two remaining
littermate sisters from up in the sky..
Who are continuing to fight to stay alive...

(We would ask that you please refrain from commenting if you have anything negative to say...
Focus your thoughts on the two remaining pups... Thank you 🙏🏻)

Hip Hip Hooray!
It’s Chico’s 6th Birthday!
We see cake on your chin mate...
And we know this birthday was awesomely great...
As it’s the first one in your furever home after being adopted earlier his year...
Which deserves a big birthday hip hip hooray cheer...

Your mum and puggy x sister say adopting you was the best decision ever....
And that despite having a bendy leg and one eye you are such a great little guy who they will love furever and ever...

Happy Birthday Chico mate!
We are so glad adoption life is going great.,,

Chico xxx

Pug Rescue spent months and $4,000+ in vet bills to turned Chico’s life around…
And a perfect furever home ironically with an eye nurse has been found…

This little pug went through a lot during his time in Pug Rescue care…
Chico underwent specialist surgery with Dr Ricky at Southpaws Specialty Surgery for Animals where a folded palatoplasty to shorten Chico’s extremely long soft palate, a tonsillectomy to remove his tonsils and widened his stenotic nares (nostrils)…
So now Chico doesn’t have to huff and puff and constantly struggle for air…
An X-ray of Chico’s bendy front leg was also performed…
He has carpal valgus where the growth plate was damaged as he was growing causing the ulnar to not grow as long as the radius and making the leg and wrist turn…

Chico’s one and only eye has been saved from blindness thanks to Dr Hayley and the Melbourne EyeVet teams expertise…
When they performed entropion surgery to stop his eyelashes rubbing on his cornea and a corneal burr to remove pigmentary keratitis from his cornea to ensure that Chico’s remaining eye now sees…
Chico didn’t had a great start to life before coming to Pug Rescue…
Being bought and sold several times through different homes he lost his eye sadly due to a human throwing something at him causing blunt forced trauma/injury and a general vet removing the damaged eye (which most likely could have been saved with specialist surgery) leaving him only one eye to see through…

He also came into care with some separation type behaviour issues that we have been able to work through...
And make him a well adjusted boy who’s furever home dreams came true...
