Hello, my name is Stormy. Let me tell you how I arrived at “Pug Luv”. I was purchased from a breeder who told the lady I was a Pug. Well as you can see I am not a purebred Pug which the lady said I was. The second thing the lady didn’t say was that I have a medical issue. That issue is an elongated soft palate which causes me to have difficulty breathing. When the lady found this out she realized she did not have the money to help me and put out the word to a friend that she was looking for a home for me.
The friend called his sister who will take any dog and try to help. She was told also that I was a Pug and not about my medical condition. When I was taken to the vet to receive my vaccinations, that by the way I had not yet received, she found out about the medical condition which she also could not afford. As a result she began looking for help because in addition to the medical condition I have she already had four big dogs. She called “Pug Luv” and said I have a 1 year old male Pug who is not neutered but has received his vaccines and has this elongated soft palate that needs to be corrected. I was put on Gabapentiin every 8 hours and Trazodone every 12 hours to assist with my breathing until I can have my surgery. The wonderful people at “Pug Luv” agreed to come and get me. It was a long drive, three hours each way. When they saw me they exclaimed he is not a Pug. They said they would take me anyway and get whatever medical needs I had taken care of and then find me a furever home. I was taken to the “Pug Luv” Veterinarian where it was confirmed that I needed the surgery. She said I needed to see a specialist to have the surgery done. She believes I am a Pug/Pekinese mix, so I am a Peke a Pug. I have the head , body and legs and personality of a Pug and the fur of a Peke. She gave me a Lepto and Bordetella vaccine, a heart worm test and said I also had an ear infection. I am to remain the two prescriptions until I can have my surgery.
I am potty trained, like other dogs, love kids and like to snuggle. I am currently in my foster home with two new four legged friends and a wonderful foster mom and dad. Hopefully my surgeon can take care of my palate and neuter me at the same time. I just don’t want to be put to sleep twice for my surgeries. Once I have recovered from my surgeriesI will be made available to be adopted. If you want to get a head start in the adoption process, go to the “Adopt/Foster” tab on the home page of michiganpugrescue.com, download an Adoption Application, print it, fill it in and mail I to the address on the application. Please keep me in your prayers and I hope to meet you, your family and your other dogs soon.
