On November 5, 2019, Theodore Marlon Pug #52-19 and Louie Jamal Pug #53-19 were adopted by Cindy and family.

These sweet fawn pug brothers, formerly known as Chub Chub and Chow Chow, were released by their breeder because both had corneal ulcers. After several weeks of treatment, they were finally cleared for adoption. Lucky for them, they landed in a foster home where there was just one senior pug and two young human brothers who were ready for puppy adventures. We knew right away these boys would not be leaving this perfect home.

Congratulations to all!

On November 5, 2019, Bailey Pug #54-19 and Diesel Pug #55-19 were adopted by Elaine of New Hampshire.

Bailey, a 13 year old fawn female, and Diesel, an 11 year old black male, were surrendered by their owners due to the sale of their house and an upcoming move out of state. Bailey and Diesel are a bonded pair who have been together since they were puppies. They have been well cared for and the primary consideration was to keep them together and minimize their confusion with a move.

Although their foster mom had a preapproved application on file, she did not plan on adopting a pair of seniors, but it only took a day for her to realize this was meant to be. Happily, the surrendering owners are able to keep in touch with Elaine because this was a very difficult decision and we all believe they have done what’s best for Bailey and Diesel.

Congratulations Elaine!

On November 2, 2019, Teddie Pug #57-19 was adopted by Simona and family of New York.

Teddie is a handsome 3 year old fawn pug who was surrendered due to an infant’s allergies. Teddie had been much loved by his family but after trying all possible ways to make it work, the baby was just too allergic. Teddie’s new family is working on his aggression towards other dogs and after an adjustment period with their resident cat, Teddie has settled in to his new home.

Congratulations Simona and Teddie.

On September 30, 2019, Frankie pug #44-19 was adopted by Kathy of Vermont.

Frankie is a young pug mix, full of energy and physically strong. Kathy has a very active lifestyle full of walking, hiking and mountain climbing. She was looking for a smaller dog than the pitbulls she previously owned. Frankie makes up for in attitude what he is lacking in size. Kathy and Frankie have already climbed Camel’s Hump and go on extended walks every day. Kathy is also working with a trainer to deal with Frankie’s quirks.

Congratulations Kathy and Frankie.

On September 29, 2019, Molly, pug #19-049 was adopted by Jake and Ian of New York.

Molly will have a senior pug sister for company and two loving dads.

Congratulations Jake, Ian and Molly!

Congratulations Jodie & Maxie.

On March 2, 2019, Gus, pug #2-19, was adopted by Mike & Melissa of New York.

Gus is a very sweet loving 12 year old neutered male pug, who found himself at the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society. They contacted GMPR in the hope that we could take this little man and of course we were happy to do so. Gus is a typical geriatric pug. He has a very weak, wobbly hind end. He is ambulatory, but ultimately may need a wheel chair and we are hoping to get him fitted for one in a couple of weeks. Gus needed a home willing to take the time to give him the extra attention and care he will need and Mike & Melissa were more than ready to take on the challenge.

Here is a note received from Mike & Melissa after Gus had spent his first night in his forever home: " Gus did great last night! On the way home from picking him up Gus was able to enjoy his first trip to Pet Smart. Mom and Dad had fun spoiling him! Last night Gus was able to meet most of the family. He enjoyed company from Grandmas, Grandpa, brothers, and our niece and nephew. Needless to say he slept well last night! We love Gus and we are thankful to have him as part of the family.”

Congratulations Mike, Melissa & Gus

On March 2, 2019, Pickle, pug #04-19 was adopted by Suzanna of Vermont.

Pickle is a 15 month old female pug that was surrendered in love because of a new baby and some major changes in the family dynamic. Pickle has luxated patellas but surgery is not an option for Pickle at this time. She is not in any pain and gets around really well. Pickle just has a very bow-legged hind end and not as much strength as she should have. A weight loss program including exercise will be necessary to get her healthy and strong. Suzanna has a 2 yr old pug/boston terrier mix, so Pickle will get plenty of exercise playing with her and hopefully the extra weight will soon disappear.

Congratulations Suzanna and Pickle.

On February 27, 2019, Lola, Pug #19-05 was adopted by Emily and Mike of Vermont.

Lola is a 9 month old brindle, female pug that was surrendered to GMPR because her owner did not have time to give her the attention she needed. This sweet brindle is the life of the party! She loves to run and play with other dogs. She will get to look forward to lots of play time with her big fur brother, Arlo!! She will also get to spend quality time with her new human Daddy while he works from home everyday.

When Emily met Lola it was love at first sight and she knew it was time to fill the void that their last pug, Maxine, left when she crossed the rainbow bridge last year and find a new best friend for their dog, Arlo, who was also missing his pug friend. Emily and Mike had adopted Maxine from GMPR back in 2015.

We can’t wait to see them at this year’s social and have Lola compete in the longest tongue contest!!

Congratulations Emily, Mike and Lola!!!

On February 9, 2019, Wally, pug #68-18, was adopted by Elizabeth of Vermont.

Wally now named Ozzie is a 17 week old puppy that was surrendered to GMPR by a breeder in Virginia as he had some corneal scarring and a hernia that needed medical care. Wally was taken to the ophthalmologist and it was felt that hopefully with eye medication his eyesight would not deteriorate. Elizabeth is a GMPR alumni and adopted Rex in 2017. Rex was a young dog that came to GMPR with a severe deformity of his front legs. Because Rex was unable to interact and play with other dogs normally, Elizabeth wanted a young buddy for him that would accept him the way he was and not realize that he was different. Rex and Wally get along very well and have formed a strong bond.

Congratulations Elizabeth, Wally & Rex

On January 27, 2019, Sonny Ray Jr., pug #69-18, was adopted by Jessica and Tony of New York.

Jessica and Tony had been looking for another pug for some time. Sonny is named after famed Sonny Ray of GMPR fame, those are some pretty big shoes to fill. As the only boy in their pack, he will be King of the Castle and live the life every Pug should.

Congratulations Jessica & Tony!

On January 26, 2019, Ruby Sunshine, pug #44-18 was adopted by Dianne & Robert of Connecticut.

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 not like to share her human with other dogs and we therefore needed to find her a home with no other pets. Dianne & Robert lost their last 2 pugs in 2018 and were ready to take another senior. They have lots of pug experience and Ruby will be very happy to have a home where she does not have to share her human with other dogs!!

Congratulations Dianne, Robert and Ruby Sunshine.
