We believe she has found the perfect family as she will be the only dog in this quiet home and there is someone around most of the time to help her transition into her new life.

Congratulations Amber, Marcus and Chiquita.

On September 19, 2018, Balto, Pug #38-18, was adopted by Daniel of Vermont.

Balto is a 6 year old neutered Pug-a-Pom (Pug/Pomeranian) who was surrendered in love because there was a new baby in the home and Balto went from First Baby to Second Baby. Desiring more attention, Balto started to mark in the house. When Balto arrived at GMPR, it was discovered that he had a serious urinary tract infection and several large bladder stones which were removed surgically. Daniel had met Balto several times in his foster home and the two bonded quickly. He will be an only dog, so will receive lots of attention and love.

Congratulations Daniel & Balto.

On September 17, 2018, Tango, Pug #52-18, was adopted by Wendy of New York.

Tango is a 3 yr old male brindle pug that came from a breeder in West Virginia. Thanks to the help of several generous people and a network of volunteers, we were able to get Tango out of a very bad situation. Tango spent his life as a stud dog, living in a stacked crate in a spare room. As a result he was never house trained and will need a lot of patience and work in this area. Wendy, who has been waiting for some time for a pug was up for the challenge with this gorgeous boy and he will have her 2 older dogs help him learn the ropes. Tango will no longer be kept caged and will be able to enjoy the outdoors in Wendy’s fenced yard with her other dogs.

Congratulations Wendy & Tango

On September 13, 2018, Tory, Pug #53-18, was adopted by Patricia of Vermont.

Tory is a 2 yr old female brindle pug that was obtained from a breeder in West Virginia. Thanks to the help of several generous people and a network of volunteers, we were able to get Tory out of a very bad situation. Tory had spent her life as a breeder in a crate with no exercise and too much poor quality food which resulted in her becoming very overweight. Patricia is a GMPR alumni and has been looking for another pug for some time. Since Patricia works from home in a beautiful part of VT, Tory will never have to live in a crate again and will have another mellow dog to play with.

Congratulations Patricia and Tory

On September 7, 2018, Puggy, Pug #47-18 was adopted by his foster mom Judy of Vermont.

Puggy is a 12 year old male pug who was surrendered by a family that could not afford his care. He had an ominous looking black growth on his leg and a large growth on his eye. Thankfully, both turned out to be non-cancerous. Due to severe dry eye Puggy has limited vision and will need eye drops for the rest of his life. He was also never housebroken. Puggy was initially very frightened of his foster family but with their careful and loving approach, he became very comfortable with them. His foster mom felt that it would be best for Puggy if he stayed with them, rather than being moved to yet another home.

Congratulations Judy & Puggy

On September 1, 2018, Bueller, Pug #42-18, was adopted by Beth of Maine.

Duke was originally surrendered to a local vet to be euthanized. The vet felt that Duke who is 14 1/2 yrs young was very adoptable despite his arthritis and contacted GMPR. Of course, we could not turn down this sweet boy and neither could his foster home, who decided to keep him after his being with them for just a few days. Duke has joined Mary & Ed’s grumble of senior pugs and is very happy to spend his senior years being loved and pampered with his new siblings. We couldn’t have asked for a better outcome for this sweet boy.

An x-ray showed that he does have a luxating patella with quite advanced arthritis and he has been put on glucosamine supplements and pain medication daily.
