My First Pug Rescue Transport!

Hi everyone!
I hope you are all well and happy. Nothing exciting or new over here. Summer is just about over, as soon as it really started here in the Pacific Northwest. I'm hoping we will have a few more weeks of fairly decent weather in September. Gosh...September already! Can you believe it? I know a lot of you love fall, but it's just one more dreary season to me. :o(

Today I got to help out the Seattle Pug Rescue. I was thrilled to help! The Seattle Pug Rescue is a wonderful group that helps rescue pugs get healthy and happy and new forever homes. Hubby and I signed up to help as transport drivers back in May. And today I finally got to help!

I picked up an older gentleman pug in Olympia at the animal shelter and drove him about 75 miles north to Norton's Ark. They are the wonderful people that take care of these pugs while they are evaluated and see the vet.

Here is my little passenger. He was not too thrilled to be in the kennel, he barked and wheezed for the first half of the trip. I talked and sang to him, hoping he would settle down. Since I am not a very good singer, I guess I just annoyed the poor guy. I turned up the radio and he finally relaxed. I guess Robert Plant is more soothing than me! I would have to agree. ;o)

This is one poor, sad old boy. He looks like he had been left outside for a very long time. His skin is black from the sun and his fur is all puffy. His eyes were filled with pus and goo.

You can see from this photo that he has some horrible attachments, they are not his boy parts, they are untreated tumors. You can also see the scabs and wear and tear on his poor back legs. It looks like he spent a lot of time in one spot.

I will not tell you all of the horrible thought I have about his former "family". Let's just say they are horrible people and do not deserve to have any animals. And that I believe in karma, what goes around, comes around. People that mistreat animals are vile.

I would shed tears for this little pug, but I brought him to some wonderful people today. They will care for all of his health issues. They will give him all of the love and affection that he so deserves. Even if this poor old boy is so ill that he just has a short time left, I know it will be in comfort and love.

I am honored and privileged to help the Seattle Pug Rescue. I look forward to transporting more pugs to the way station to their forever homes.

Hug your pugs and all of your pets and family. Thank you for being kind people and taking proper care of your pets.
hugs and love to you all!!

  6. Thanks for helping that sweet old boy. It makes me feel better to know that he will, at last, get to know the pleasure of a loving home.

  7. I couldn't help shedding a few tears for him--I hate to see an animal suffer because of some person's idiocy. God bless you for helping him get to a better place! I hope soon he will be healthy, clean, well-fed, and snuggled. :)

  9. Bless you, Puglette. You're performing an invaluable and, I'm sure, very rewarding service. That poor sweet gentleman pug. It breaks my heart to hear about animals being mistreated, much less see the evidence. Imagine how happy he will be in his new home.

    I agree: What goes around comes around.

  10. Dear Puglette
    Our eyes shedded tears too when we read the story of the poor old boy.
    Thank you Puglette for helping. Your heart is sooo big and loving and I know every little animal that you touch can feel the love in your hands.
    Thank you for caring- for those who need help.
