Posted Breed: Pug (short coat). Please contact Christina (pugrescueofnc@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Http:/www.pugrescuenc.com/images/PRONC_Express.jpg Update: My condition has progressed and now I am in a doggie wheelchair to get around. Thank you to my guardian angel for donating a cart to pug rescue so I can get around in the house. HI I am Chopper an around 10 years old male pug. I get very anxious when I am not with my humans thats because I love them sooo much. So might be good if my human worked from home or was a stay at home mom so I can be right with you to keep you company throughout the day. We will be best of friends. If not then another dog in the home would be great too, so I am not alone. I do great with children and other dogs. I do have some hip and back problems so I have a little trouble walking and holding my bladder. I need someone to love and love me. Are you the one? I am neutered, up to date on routine shots, heartworm negative, micro-chipped and must be on flea medications as I am very allergic to fleas. I do have some food allergies and my foster mom can go over all that with you. I have troubles with my back now and can not walk any more. Pug Rescue has helped me now and got me a wheelchair, life is good. If you need a love bug, look no farther. Put in your application for me at www.pugrescuenc.org.

Pug

A.K.A. : Chinese pug, Dutch bulldog, Dutch mastiff, Mini mastiff, Mops, Carlin
Overview: The Pug is one of the oldest breeds of dogs and has flourished since before 400 BC. China is the earliest known source for Pugs, where they were pets of the Buddhist monasteries in Tibet. The Pug is a family favorite. Full of confidence and always eager to please, this dog makes a great playmate for children and a loyal addition to the family.
Breed Group: Toy
Weight (lbs): 14-18
Height (in): 13-14
Colors: Silver, apricot-fawn, or black, with black muzzle or mask, ears, cheek moles, and trace down back.
Coat: The coat of the Pug breed is short and often double-layered, with a smooth, velvety layer of longer hair on top and a shorter, fluffier layer underneath. This type of coat gives the Pug a reputation as a prolific shedder. Often, faithful Pug owners c
Character: Pugs are social and very easy-going. Known for their intelligence, these dogs are generally calm and reserved.
Temperament: This breed gets along well with children, other dogs, and most household pets. They may become jealous if their owner diverts attention to another animal or child.
Care: The Pug requires occasional grooming with a rubber brush to remove loose hairs. Special lotion can be used on the facial creases to clean and nourish the skin.
Training: Since Pugs are stubborn, independent and smart enough to get bored quickly with repetitive exercises, they are not always easy to train. With their silly, distracting antics added to the mix, training a Pug may seem downright impossible at times. Thankfully, Pugs are exceptionally eager to please their owners, and owners who are consistent and patient can usually train their Pugs to exhibit the desired response to his or her prompts. Heaping praise upon them can also help tremendously, since they thrive on attention from their owners. It is also very important that owners do not inadvertently praise behaviors that, while cute, are not the point of the training exercise. This breed is very fond of food and treats, so using treats as rewards may provide some additional motivation for dogs that are especially strong-willed. Working with Pugs during the first six months of their lives is crucial where training is concerned, as it is much more difficult to change dogs’ behaviors after this point. Some owners express concern about how long it takes to house-train Pugs, but puppies of this breed do not develop the muscle strength to control their bowels and bladder completely until they are around 6 months old. As with other commands and skills, Pugs learn to house-train with plenty of positive reinforcement in the form of treats and praise. This breed requires gentle training, as they are very sensitive to the tone of the trainer's voice.
Activity: Pugs love to romp and play outdoors on a regular basis. Due to their small size and rather lazy nature, Pugs do not require a lot of physical activity to stay healthy and in-shape. A daily walk around the neighborhood or a romp in the backyard should easily meet these dogs’ exercise requirements; in fact, too much exercise can exacerbate Pugs’ tendency to wheeze. While Pugs do love to play, especially with children, it is important to prevent them from jumping off high surfaces like sofas or other furniture, since doing so can cause joint damage. Since they do not require much exercise, Pugs make great companions for those who live in apartments or homes without large backyards, including the elderly.
Country of Origin: China
Health Issue: This breed tends to catch colds easily and is stressed by weather extremes. They may be prone to allergies, breathing problems, and skin problems.
Life Expectancy: 12-15

More About Pug Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

Looking for a special friend? This is your lucky day!! My name is Daisy. I am 10 years old. I lived with one family for most of my life but the little human who lived with me got this thing called allergies. I'm not sure what that means but they said I couldn't stay there anymore. This person who says she is my foster Mom picked me up today. She thinks I might have a little problem seeing but I do get around. Yeah its not what it used to be but I do good. I do have dry eyes and need tacrolimus eye drops for life. I had a nice bath and met the other dogs at her house. They even have these fluffy things called cats. No big deal I'm cool as a cucumber. I love to sit in foster moms lap and get along with everyone I've met so far. Foster mom is still getting to know me And I will be sure to have her write more as we get to know each other better. I am fostered in Mocksville, NC I am up to date on routine shots, spayed, and had a recent dental. My adoption fee is $250.00.

      Posted Breed: Pug (short coat). Please contact Cathleen (cathleen@pugrescuenc.org) for more information about this pet. Http:/www.pugrescuenc.com/images/PRONC_Express.jpg Medical Hold Emma's eyes are stable the specialist are still trying to decide what is the best treatment option for her. We went ahead and got the 4 masses removed and 3 of the 4 came back as mast cell cancer so she will need to be watched in the future and have any masses removed as soon as they come up. Update: 3 weeks later and still no tears so the specialist is going to try and add another eye drop to my lists of ones I take so right now my eye medications are costing $200.00 a month. If this does not work and I can not make my own tears then the specialist will need to do surgery and move a salivary gland (parotid duct transposition) to each of my eyes. Please consider making a donation to help with my medications and surgery. Paypal: chris@pugrescuenc.org or mail a check to our main office thanks Update: I am currently under care with the eye specialist to see what can be done to correct the severe dry eyes that I suffer from. Right now my eye drops are costing the rescue $125.00 a month please consider donating as the specialist said I will need surgery as well. Emma is a 8 year old fawn pug who just came into rescue with terrible dry eyes she will be visiting the vet to see if there is anything more that can be done. She still has some vision in her eyes so she will be on drops for the rest of her life to preserve what she has. If you can not adopt please consider making a donation to help us help Emma. We are hoping someone has a solution for her dry eyes. Emma has been around children and other dogs not sure about cats. But because of her eyes the cats would need to not have front claws so as not to injure her eyes. Emma has separate anxiety and needs a human that works from home and that she can be close by to. Even with the other pugs in her foster home Emma gets frantic if she can't find a human in sight. Foster in Virginia Beach, VA once she is ready her adoption fee will be $125.00.
