Meet Sunny, Pug #24-19
Sunny is an 8 year old male pug, surrendered in love. Sunny has diabetes and requires Vetsulin injections twice a day. His diabetes has caused him to go blind. Since he has become blind, he does not get along with other dogs. When he thinks they are invading his space, he goes into attack mode. For this reason, he must be the only dog in the home. In spite of this, Sunny is extremely loving, and cuddly, with his people. He actually is a very sweet boy. He gets around really well once he learns the lay of the land, and can do stairs.
Sunny is housebroken, but due to his diabetes, he does need to be let out several times a day. A stay at home person, or someone who works part time would be best. He has been good with the toddler in the home, but older children would probably be better. Sunny loves to go for car rides and gives lots of kisses.
Sunny is fostered in Amsterdam, New York and his adoption fee is $150.

SEEKING HOME VISIT VOLUNTEERS
Wish you could adopt or foster, but cannot at this time??
You can still help out in various other ways. Right now we’re seeking volunteers to assist in performing home visits. We make every effort to ensure our rescues live their best life after coming into our organization. One of the most important steps is a home visit. Home visits help us to determine the best placement of our rescues by matching the perfect family with the perfect rescue.
Our volunteer base is just too small within our coverage areas to handle all of our applications and we have been forced to turn some folks away.
We’re reaching out in hopes to build our volunteer base so we never have to turn away an applicant due to our inability to perform the necessary home visit…
What do you need to do???
It’s simple, let us know you’re willing to help out by completing a volunteer application. We’ll setup a time of your convenience to meet with you and discuss the home visit process, and then you’re good to go and will be included in our volunteer listing..
When we receive an application, we send that application out to our list of volunteers. If the applicant resides in an area local for you to perform the home visit, let us know… Simple as that..
You love pugs and you’re reading this post, so you’re already a supporter of GMPR.
The true display of one's character is how they treat those who cannot speak or do for themselves. You're all heroes in my book and we thank you all for your continued support!! We can’t do this without you!

URGENT NEED FOR FOSTER HOMES
GMPR is in urgent need for foster homes. We cover all vet care costs and other bills accumulated to care for our foster dogs. If you are able to open your home to a pug until they are ready for adoption, please go to our FOSTER APPLICATION to start the process. Thank you for your support!
