Victorian Pet Exchange Register Source Number: RE108835

Handsome Harry letting everyone know that now that Pug Rescue has turned my life around…
I’m available for adoption and the search is on for a pawfect furever home for me to be found..
I promise that I am the nicest boy ever and with lots of work Pug Rescue has calmed my Harry Houndini wriggling tricks….
And any furever family that adopts me will love me to bits….. 

I arrived into Pug Rescue care quite overweight, needing to learn some manners and how to be calm, needing a dental and huffing and puffing for air…
I also had yucky ears and quite a bit of excess dead hair…
Vaccination, ear infections treated and major dental to remove tartar and 7 yucky teeth at Knox Vet by Dr Laura……
I huffed and puffed due to BOAS “Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome” and was a bit if a snorer….
So Pug Rescue granted me specialist airway surgery by Dr Ricky of Geelong Animal Referral Services including a folded palatoplasty to trim and reduce the thickness of my soft palate, a tonsillectomy and widening of my nostrils/nares…
After two weeks of crate resting and hand feeding I’m very excited to share….
That my breathing has improved and I no longer huff and puff for air…
Oh and I also lost over 3kg of excessive weight….
So now my health is absolutely great….

I know how to sit and wait and will do what I am asked…
I love walkies and can go very fast fast…
I’m great with puggy friends and love a game, enjoy toys and also adore snuggling and cuddling on the couch…
So if there is someone out there that would let me come live at your house it would be grouse…

Harry’s furever home wishes:

♥ ANOTHER PUG – YES! Harry has always lived with another pugs and in foster care he lives with other pugs and enjoys their companionship. He is a well socalised well mannered boy.  He likes to play and also cuddle with other pugs. Harry is seeking a similar aged healthy female desexed pug  (between 5 to 7 years) that is well socalised and non reactive as a companion.  Harry will not be rehomed with other male pugs/dogs. Harry will not be rehomed as a single pug.  Harry will not be rehomed with other breeds of dogs.
♥ HUMANS – Harry is seeking humans that can show him positive leadership and routine.  Harry can never be made by his humans to become overweight!!!!
♥KIDS – Harry would be fine with young children who are respectful to dogs.
♥FENCING – Harry as with all of our pugs requires secure brick, timber or colourbond fencing.
♥CATS – Unsure but we think would be ok.
♥EXERCISE – Harry requires at least a 30+ minute walk a day.
♥WORKING HOURS – Not suitable for homes where he would be left without humans for 6+ hours a day on a regular basis.
♥Harry absolutely requires air-condition.
♥Access to the inside of his house 24/7 and an indoor bed.
