Available Pugs

***OPEN TO ALREADY APPROVED APPLICANTS***

Meet Norman, Pug #61-18

Norman is a 6 year old fawn male pug. He was surrendered in love because the household dynamic changed. With long working hours and busy school schedules, he was being crated 10 hours a day. Needless to say, he is crate trained. Norman is housebroken if on a frequent schedule. He is vision impaired and does require eye drops. He also has severe dry skin that we are treating.

Norman will do well in a family setting with a stay at home person or someone who is retired. He requires lots of attention, but also likes his quiet time. He loves kids and get along with other dogs. Norman needs to be neutered and vetted prior to adoption.

Norman is fostered in Saratoga Springs, NY and his adoption fee is $250.

Meet Rocky Pug #60-18

Rocky is a 9 year old brindle male. Surrendered in love, because of a family situation. Rocky had presented symptoms of separation anxiety when he first arrived at GMPR. Now that he has settled in his foster home, his anxiety has virtually disappeared. We believe his anxiety has gone away due to how quiet his foster home is so a calm, dog savvy home is a must. Rocky is endearing, lovable, and very smart. He likes to sleep with his human. He is housebroken and crate trained. He does bark when he first meets new people, but settles down and is good with older children. His activity level may be too much for toddlers.

Rocky is fostered in Chatham, NY and his adoption fee is $150.

***ADOPTION PENDING***

Meet Precious, pug 57-18.

Precious is a 4 year old silver brindle female pug. Precious’ owner moved to a nursing home and her family decided to surrender her to GMPR. Precious is housetrained but will use a piddle pad. Precious was at the Pug Social and was great with other dogs and all people. She ignored the cat in her foster home. Precious has been vetted and vaccinated but she will need a dental before adoption.

Precious is fostered in East Barre, VT and her adoption fee is $350.

***ADOPTION PENDING***

Meet Nala, Pug #54-18

Nala is a 5 yr old intact black pug that was surrendered in love to GMPR. Nala was in a home with a lot of kids, but apparently there had been a couple of occasions where she had bitten one of the children, and the owners felt that for the safety of the children, it would be best if she were rehomed. We are therefore looking for a home with no children or a home with older children.

Nala is doing very well in her foster home. She gets along well with the other dogs in the home and is housetrained but does not like to be in a crate. She has shown no food aggression. Nala has been vetted and will be spayed 9/26/18.

Nala adoption fee is $250 and fostered in Mendon, Vermont.

Meet Ruby Sunshine, pug #44-18

Ruby is an 8-9 yr old spayed, female pug. She is a sweetheart who wants to be with her human constantly, sleep with them and follow them from room to room - she is definitely a “velcro” pug!! Ruby does have a history of bladder stones which were removed surgically. Because she did have some slight urinary incontinence following surgery she was put on Propalin (Proin) daily which seems to be helping with this issue but she is not completely housebroken and still has accidents. Ruby needs a home with no cats and because she can be quite possessive of her human, we are looking to place her in a home with no other dogs.

Ruby is fostered in Rexford, New York and her adoption fee is $150.

Meet Coco, Pug #46-18

Coco is a 9 year old female pug rescued from the Scotia, NY Animal Shelter. Coco is all that a typical Pug should be. She is an Alpha, Dominant Female, and will do best with a very submissive dog or two. She does tend to be the Activity Monitor and likes to control and keep the home calm. She is actually doing well in our pack of Reactive dogs, but we do keep a close eye on their activities. Coco is housebroken, very happy and playful. She loves to snuggle and most definitely would like to sleep in your bed. She is good with Children. I don't know about cats, as I don't have any. Coco recently had an extensive dental, and is up to date on shots, etc. No eye, or orthopedic issues at this time, however, Coco had a lesion tested that came back as Mast Cell. We will update when we know more.

***UPDATE***
Pugs don't come much cuter than Coco! She is a sassy girl who owns the room when she enters! She woos and chortles and tells you all about herself. Coco loves people and is good with children. Other dogs she is not too fond of. She is an Alpha Girl and wants to control the activity. She is currently being fostered in a home with 4 other dogs and is doing pretty well. She went to a pug meet up and really did quite well, unless pressured by younger male dogs. She is a Lady and will not tolerate being mounted. Coco is what I call Leash Aggressive. If she is on leash and meets up with other dogs, she instantly goes into attack mode. I believe that taking her to a Basic Manners/Obedience Class will help with this tremendously. She has shown that she can be re-directed with tasty treats. Coco is an adorable, sweet, pug, that wants to be with her humans all the time and really doesn't want to share them with other dogs. She does have some separation anxiety, so a Stay at Home Person would be ideal. Coco needs a home with a Dog Savvy Family willing to work on her behavior. Because of her Leash Reactivity, I don't think she will do well in an Apartment or Condo. As smart as she is, with the proper training, she is going to be absolutely perfect. Coco is now cancer free, and very healthy. She truly is a Love Pug!

Coco is fostered in Rutland, VT and her adoption fee is $150.

Meet Loki, Pug 18-45

Loki is a 2 year old fawn chug (chihuahua/pug). Loki was surrendered after he was returned to his breeder by a family that did not give him the best care. Loki did not do well in his former home but has settled in nicely in his foster home with 6 other dogs. He prefers to keep his distance from the grandkids so a home with older children or adults would be best. Loki was said to need housetraining but again, had only one accident in his foster home. He has also been fine with the cats. Because Loki’s history is mixed, a new owner will need to give Loki time to adjust to new surroundings.

Loki is fostered in Ogdensburg, NY and his adoption fee is $300.

***OPEN TO NEW APPLICANTS OUTSIDE OF OUR ADOPTION AREA***

Meet Snuggles, Pug 17-078

Snuggles is a 4 year old female pug/husky mix. Snuggles is an owner surrender who was adopted last year. Their chug decided that she did not like Snuggles and there have been some spats. Snuggles is larger than a pug and very fit and active, she would make a wonderful hiking/walking partner. Her foster dad has been working with her on getting along with other dogs and children. She is best friends with a couple of her foster fur siblings and she loves her foster dad's grandchildren.

An ideal home for Snuggles is with an active family that is dog savvy. She will need some structure in her daily routines to keep the husky side of her at bay.

Snuggles is fostered in Ogdensburg, NY and her adoption fee is $300.
