Trixie here with Bomber who’s my man...
Just letting you all know that adopted life is just grand...
I moved into my furever home a few weeks ago...
And my furever family are some of the best people you could ever know...

I spend the days playing chasey and wrestling with Bomber around the yard and house...
And I go for walkies most days which is grouse...

I’ve stolen my furever mums favourite chair as my own....
Bomber and I sit on it like a puggy throne...

Better go as dad is serving up dinner and of course I find it hard to wait...
Adopted life is seriously great!

Trixie xxx
Adopted & Loved!

Trixie arrived into Pug Rescue care not in a good way….
She is awfully glad that Pug Rescue actually care for pugs as even though she was clearly a total mess her old surrendering humans said nothing is wrong with her in any way…
As we loaded Trixie into our Pug Rescue volunteers car we knew she had been up for sale several times in the past year was morbidly obese, had absolutely horrendous breathing, was on heat, was most likely pregnant, had a mouth full of stinking rotting teeth, was intensely itching due to mites, “thanks for surrendering we will look after her is all we could say”… It’s now been just over 3 months of Pug Rescue trying to right what others did wrong to this little pug girl…
Pregnancy test, unwanted mating injections (we had were unsure what breed had mated with Trixie and Trixie would have died from carrying a litter), 3.5kg in weight loss, mite treatment, specialist airway surgery at Southpaws Specialty Surgery for Animals, major dental at Knox Vet Clinic with 30 rotted teeth removed by a tag team of two vets, desexing and after all of still Trixie’s little tail still curls… $4k+ has now been spent on vet bills by Pug Rescue helping Trixie and to right what others did so wrong…
We are so glad that her perfect furever family came along!Trixie here with Bomber who’s my man...

MIA -
Mia is a petite puggy girl…
With a perfect little tail curl…
Such beautiful wrinkles on her face….
She is very happy that Pug Rescue have turned her life around from a disaster to ace…

A game of wrestling with her puggy friends and a shake of a fluffy toy…
Mia’s face lights up with cheeky joy…
A definite princess pug…
She loves to sit on laps and get cuddles and hugs…
Drives in the car are best done from the passenger seat…
Mia likes going through drive through’s as it means she can score a chip or two to eat…..
Princess of her foster yard and house…..
She now thinks that the luxuries of living inside are grouse…

When Mia entered into Pug Rescue care…
She was hyped up, blind, terribly obese, had rotting teeth and terrible straw broom like hair….
Her blinded eyes were sore and gunky with thick brown pigmentary keratitis covering 90% of her right eye and 75% of her left eye which made us sad…
Daily Tacrolimus & Maxidex eyedrops from Melbourne EyeVet have reduced and thinned the pigment to approx 60% on her right eye and 40% on her left improving her vision which has made us so glad….
Mia’s eyes before & after: www.facebook.com/199803963337/posts/10158273663043338/?d=n
Oh and as for that extra weight…
Mia has now lost 3kg+ and feels great…
And her once horrible straw like hair after many months of a good diet, lots of brushes and baths and living indoors has now become soft and smooth…..

Her major dental at Knox Vet Clinic needed two vets and took quite a while…
To remove 28+ rotted teeth from her mouth leaving her with a 7 toothy smile…
Mia’s nostrils were also widened so that more air can get through…
And now after months of rehab and care it’s time for Mia’s furever home dreams to come true….

A furever home to fit a princess Mia seeks for herself…
One that can continue to keep her in her now great health…
Yummy food, a brother pug, lots of outings, plenty of hugs, a soft bed and toy….
Mia thinks those things are not to much to ask for and promises to reply her forever family with lots of joy….

KODA -
Who's got a toy?
For Koda who is the goodest boy...
If there is soft toys to be found....
This little guy will pick one out and shake it around...
Carrying it in his mouth showing off to everyone...
It's really lovely to see him having so much fun....

His past life was not great...
And he arrived in into Pug Rescue care in a pretty terrible state...
Undesexed, rotten teeth, patches of missing hair, horribly itchie skin that made him bite himself and spin...
Desexing and a major dental at Knox Vet Clinic done it has taken many months to fix his skin...
Treatment for mites, medicated shampoo's cortisones, antibiotics, allergy tablets and injections to name a few things we've done....
And finally we have overcome....
The horrible state his skin was in...
And now it's soft and his hair is glistening...
Melbourne EyeVet have been consulted for his pigmentary ketatitis….
Daily eye drops have seen his pigment reduce and his eyes shine with much more brightness....

Koda loves to have a sunbake....
And he is enjoys walkies and does an excellent job at going straight...
He adores the companionship of female pugs and will play and snuggle up to his foster sisters...
Resting his head on them with his little grey whiskers...
He will sit when you ask him to...
And is a very good boy who will generally do everything you ask him to do...
He loves a cuddle on the couch and an ear scratch and belly rub....
Koda is such a great little pug....

So if have a place in your heart and home and of course some soft toys...
For this little black puggy boy...
He promises you...
Unconditional love if you make his furever home wishes come true...
