Pugsley. I am dedicating a whole blog to Pugsley because he deserves it. Pugsley was a pug we helped foster in 2006. Some background on him: a lady saw an ad in the local paper for a free pug and something just did not sit right with her. She drove to NW GA only to find an emaciate pug who had been abandoned in a backyard when his breeder/owner moved to FL and left him to fend for himself. This Good Samaritan took him to her house and got him cleaned up, but quickly realized he was sick. She contacted SEPRA to surrender him into rescue. At the time, I had never seen such a sickly pug. Pugsley was so skinny, mouth full of rotten teeth and coughing constantly. Sadly, he was HW+ and completed his Heartworm treatment with us. Although Pugsley was estimated to be about 10 years old, he had the demeanor and life of a much younger pug. Pugsley stayed with us for about 6 months and then went to another foster home to fully recover and start on his path to be the pug he was always meant to be.

Although Pugsley’s beginnings may have been humble, he has sure made up for it. In 2007, Pugsley was adopted by the best mom a pug could ever hope for-Sharon! Not only is she a caring person, but she has a doggie bakery! Yes, the pug that was once deprived of food and shelter now gets to live the ultimate life of making sure all cookies are baked to perfection. When his mom held Pugsley in her arms, you could just see how much she loved him! He is a true treasure! His mom and grandmother had a vendor booth at Pugfest with their delicious treats and pug items from Just Dogs Gourmet. His mom generously donated items for the silent auction to help raise funds for SEPRA. A big thanks to Sharon for not only giving Pugsley a wonderful home, but for supporting SEPRA.

If you are ever in the Fayetteville, GA area, please stop in to meet Sharon, to get some treats for your canine companion, and hopefully you will get to see the infamous Pugsley hard at work!
