Introducing Iggy-One pug puppy’s rescue journey......


2/8-Iggy’s first day in GMPR foster care

Iggy was born September 8, 2019. When Iggy was several months old he was sold to a pet store in Florida. During his time at the pet store, Iggy was having seizures and exhibiting neurological abnormalities. GMPR was told that Iggy saw a veterinarian while in Florida and a neurological exam was recommended, but not followed through on. At this point, a local rescue stepped in and Iggy was surrendered and transported to a veterinary clinic in Ohio. Fortunately for Iggy and GMPR, GMPR’s participates with the Puppy Mill Rescue Team (PMRT). PMRT works with a number of veterinary clinics in Ohio, triaging puppy mill dog surrenders to participating rescues. One of the PMRT’s participating veterinary clinics called GMPR and asked for help, Iggy needed to be rescued by a dedicated, experienced rescue and GMPR was happy to step up and take him.

Iggy came into GMPR as a foster on 2/8. Since he came into GMPR, Iggy has has a full veterinary examination including blood work and seen a veterinary neurologist for evaluation, medication management and discussion of treatment options. Iggy’s initial diagnosis Is myoclonic focal seizures. Iggy’s seizures have continued, 2 different types of meds given 3 times a day have helped keep the seizures contained and mostly manageable. As breakthrough seizures have occurred, his medication has been increased. Based on his primary veterinarian and neurologist recommendations, GMPR has scheduled Iggy for an MRI. We want him to have every opportunity for a happy and healthy life and hope that narrowing down what is causing the seizures can help with his treatment.

It takes a village-GMPR is asking for your contribution to help with Iggy’s medical expenses. His MRI is estimated to cost between $3,800 and $4,200. We know that it is a difficult time to be reaching out, however a rescues expenses don’t decrease regardless of world events. We are dedicated to helping Iggy and other pugs like him who have special medical or behavioral issues. Thank you for your consideration and supporting GMPR to do what our mission is - Saving One Pug At A Time!

Note: we are currently not accepting new applications at this time due to COVID and we have a long wait list of approved applicants. Approved applicants will have an active adoption application on file, have completed their home visit and have received an approval for our adoption coordinator.

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!!!!

Meet Carl (Carlisle) Pug #15-20


Carl is a 5-6 year old, Silver/Black male pug. He was surrendered because his owner had serious medical issues and could not care for him properly. It appears that Carl was used for breeding and kept crated quite a bit. He is not housebroken and requires a belly-band. Upon arrival, Carl was found to have an enlarged prostate gland with quite a bit of infection. He has been neutered and is being treated for this infection. We are hoping that since he has been neutered and when the infection clears, he will not mark so much. He may never learn the finer points of house training. Carl is a lovely boy, who is good with people of all ages and other dogs. He hasn't been around cats, but assume he will be OK. Carl loves lots of Belly Rubs and "Me" time. He is very much your typical pug. Carl will go back for another ultrasound and follow up to see if his Prostate has returned to normal.

Carl is fostered in Balston Lake, NY and his adoption fee is $250.

Note: we are not currently accepting new applications at this time due to COVID-19. Anyone who has an active adoption application on file with a home visit completed and an approval email from our adoption coordinator can inquire about adopting Cheyenne.

Meet Cheyenne, Pug #14-20


Cheyenne is a 9 year old female fawn pug. Cheyenne was surrendered with Buddy Pug 13-20 to a local animal shelter with several other dogs when her owner was encouraged to relinquish them. Cheyenne came in with an infection in her foot, most likely from an old injury that was not treated. Xrays indicate that she has bone loss due to the long term infection and her foot looks like it has been crushed. Her foot drags when she walks and she will need a protective boot to keep from rubbing the skin off if she is not on a soft surface. Cheyenne also has hip dysplasia in both hips and a narrowing of her spine which causes some difficulties with elimination. She is on medication for excessive urination and that has improved greatly. Cheyenne has had a dental and her vaccinations. She came in with Buddy, and although they are not a “bonded” pair, she seeks him out and should have another pug for company in her new home. Even with all she has been through, Cheyenne remains a sweet soul who deserves a forever home.

Cheyenne is currently fostered in Ogdensburg, NY and will not be available for adoption until her Medical Hold is lifted.

***OPEN TO APPROVED APPLICANTS ONLY***

Note: we are not currently accepting new applications at this time due to COVID-19. Anyone who has an active adoption application on file with a home visit completed and an approval email from our adoption coordinator can inquire about adopting Buddy.

Meet Buddy, Pug #13-20


Buddy is said to be a 7-8 year old neutered male pug although he may be older. Buddy was surrendered to a local animal shelter with several other dogs when his owner was encouraged to relinquish them. He had severe dental disease and has had his remaining teeth removed. Buddy has cataracts that allow him to partially see during the day but he is mostly blind at night. It appears that he might be deaf or hard of hearing, but otherwise appears healthy. Buddy is housetrained and gets along with other dogs. He came in with Cheyenne, pug #14-20 and although they are not a “bonded” pair, they spend most of their time together.

Buddy is fostered in Ogdensburg, New York and his adoption fee is $150.
