Meet Rocco, Pug #16-20


Rocco is a 9-10 year old Peke-a-Pug. Rocco was posted on Craigslist because he did not get along well with other dogs. Rocco needs full vetting, to include neuter and dental. He is a mellow boy and travels really well in the car. We found out he loves to fly in an airplane too! Paws for Pilots flew him to us and we got a great shot of him with his pilot buddies! He is dominant and prefers to be the only dog or with a submissive female. He loves people, we don't know about kids or cats. He poops outside and will pee, but is a manic marker.

More to come once he is settled in and vetted.

Rocco is fostered in Merrimack, NH and his adoption fee will be $150.

Peke-a-Pugs are so darn cute!!!!

NOTE: CeCe is available only to applicants that has completed their home visits and received an approval email from our Adoption Coordinator.

Meet CeCe, Pug #20-20


CeCe is a 7-8 year old female Puggle (pug/beagle). GMPR was notified of this pug mix needing rescuing through a Facebook post. She was surrendered because her owners were suffering from Alzheimer disease and could no longer take care of her.

CeCe is a sweet girl but can be nervous at first with new people. She still needs to be vetted and will likely need a dental. Stay tuned for more details as she settles in her foster home.

CeCe is fostered in Schenectady, New York and her adoption fee is $150.

Meet Pug #22-20, Jack


Jack is a 6-8-month-old Jug (Pug/Jack Russell) puppy. Jack was surrendered because he was too active for the older dog in the home. Jack is high energy and has difficulty focusing. Much more Jack Russell personality than Pug. Jack is very sweet and loving. He loves to give kisses to his humans and enjoys lots of belly rubs! He will need lots of patience with housebreaking. So far, he doesn't have much of a clue. Jack will require a dog savvy home, with someone dedicated to his training and behavior. Jack is very smart and has lots of potential to become a great dog. Dogs like Jack need a job to do to keep them out of mischief. He may be great at Agility once he learns his puppy manners. Jack is neutered and fully vetted.

Jack is fostered in West Rutland, and his adoption fee is $350.

***ADOPTION PENDING***

Meet Precious, Pug #24-20

Precious is a 9 year old black female pug. Precious was surrendered with Bear Pug 25-20 by a family member after her owner passed away unexpectedly.

Meet Bear, Pug #25-20

Bear is a 12 year old fawn male pug. Bear was surrendered with Precious Pug 24-20 by a family member after their owner passed away unexpectedly.

Bear and Precious would love to stay together if the right home becomes available.

Meet Cinnamon #27-20


Cinnamon is a 7 year little girl advertised as a pug mix on Craigslist. Her vet paperwork says she is predominantly PUG. Judge for yourselves. Cinnamon came to GMPR because she was in need of rescue. Her paperwork (which also states pug) ended 5 years ago for any medical care. She came in with infected eyes and ears, skin issues (allergies?), parasites and toenails that would make a Diva proud. Cinnamon has been friendly to everyone, gets along great with other dogs and cats and spends her day hanging close to her person. She takes baths well and is great for her eye and ear medications. She has shown some serious attitude when her tolerance for clipping, washing and cleaning has reached its limit. Photos show a before and after, although we are not done with the haircut, there is only so much a girl can take. Cinnamon will be spayed and have a hernia repaired and tooth removed that was noted needing to be done 5 years ago.

The top photo was the first picture taken when she arrived and the bottom photo is a more recent photo. As you can see, her transformation has been amazing!

Cinnamon is fostered in Berlin, VT and her adoption fee is $250.

Meet Sebastian (aka Bash), Pug #20-30


Bash is a 7 year old black male pug. He was saved from his living situation by a couple in NYC who intended on getting him into a pug rescue. They contacted GMPR and of course we took him. Bash came into GMPR with numerous medical issues. He has severe dry eye that went untreated and caused an ulcer on one his eyes, severe ear infections, nose fold skin infection, bad knees and hips as well as some breathing issues likely stemming from an elongated soft palette. With eyes and ears being left untreated for so long, he is mostly blind and deaf. He may get some vision and hearing back once the infections are cleared but not much. Bash has completed an initial visit with the vet and he is being treated for his eyes, ear and nose fold infections. He will be seeing a surgeon in the coming weeks to address his knees, hips and breathing.

On a positive note, Bash is the sweetest as they come. He loves his humans and follows his foster mom around everywhere. A true velcro pug! He gets along well with other dogs, kids and likely cats since he is so mild mannered. He is mostly housebroken with some marking in the home. Once neutered, we believe he will be fully housebroken. Bash will need an experienced pug family that can keep up with his chronic dry eye with drops. He doesn't like to be left alone for long periods so it would be preferred if someone is home most of the time. We are seeking donations for Bash's upcoming surgeries. Go to paypal.me/greenmtnpugrescue or click the Donate button on this post to donate to his care. Bash is fostered in Underhill, Vermont and his adoption fee is $250.

***MEDICAL HOLD***

Meet Bilbo “Baggins”, Pug #31-20

Baggins is a 5-7 year old male fawn pug. Baggins was dumped on the streets and a Good Samaritan found him to bring him to the police station. He was moved to a shelter and was never claimed. Due to the numerous medical issues he had, the shelter called us for help! As you can see he has a large, racquetball sized cyst on his leg, he has 7-8 small mass cell tumors on his body, needs a dental and neutering. The cyst and tumors will be removed during his neutering and dental. His veterinarian believes once the tumors are removed he will be a healthy boy! Baggins will also be seeing an ophthalmologist due to the amount of pressure in his eyes.

Despite all of the issues, he is a happy, sweet boy! He gets along with the dogs in his foster home. He is a typical velcro pug who loves his people. He loves snuggling on the couch and he is mostly housebroken.

We are currently collecting donations for his medical bills. If you would like to donate toward his care, go to PayPal.me/greenmtnpugrescue. Baggins is fostered in Mendon, Vermont and his adoption fee is $250.
