Every so often, Rescue receives a pug that needs some extra love, medical care, and even a long-term foster home. These pugs may take longer to recuperate, and it can be difficult to find a forever home willing to look beyond their special needs. It may take a long time for that special person to come along who is willing to adopt a special needs pug, and the pug may even be with their "guardian angel" foster home for the remainder of their lives.
For these special pugs, we are introducing the Guardian Angel Program. The pugs in this program will remain in foster care as long as needed, with rescue paying for all their medical needs and veterinary care, and will have a section on our website devoted to keeping up with their progress. If you have always wanted to help with rescue, but cannot afford to adopt another dog, this program is for you. You can become a Guardian Angel to a very special pug, save a life, and get a ton of love in return.
Frankie - Guardian Angel Program
Aug 2015: Frankie is a special pug who has gone through a lot these last few weeks. When he first came into rescue, he couldn't walk. After testing, we found out his neck was broken in two places from abuse. He was terrified of people. He had a fighting spirit though so we worked with our vet to get his pain under control. Over the last few weeks, Frankie had made huge strides! He is about 4 years old. He can be slow to warm up to people because of his past but once he does, he loves cuddling. He seems fine with other dogs. He will likely always be a little unsteady on his feet but that's ok!
The Guardian Angel Program places pugs into “forever” foster homes, for various medical reasons.

Mugsy - Guardian Angel Program
Meet Mugsy. He was in the 'rescue only' list at the shelter. He is a senior guy, blind and currently has ear infections. He is also very emaciated. He seems to be a sweet, curious senior. More details once he's in his foster home. Please consider donating to his ongoing care! Update: Poor Mugsy needs a very special home and we know that home is out there. He has some neurological issues so he walks slowly and is blind. However, he enjoys his slow walks and time with his foster family. He has gained weight and enjoys eating. The Guardian Angel Program places pugs into “forever” foster homes, for various medical reasons.
