Doug's Info...

Doug's Story...
Hi Everyone! My name is Doug...that's right, Doug-the-Pug. I just turned 4 years old in July, and am a VERY handsome Pug. I was given up by my former "family" because they said they could not afford me, and that I "smelled bad" and shed too much! They ignored me, and no one would play with me because they said I was always stinky...so, I laid in my crate, with the door open, and waited for anyone in the home to pay attention to me. I only had one toy. Fortunately, when they took me to the vet for my rabies shot, my nice vet convinced them to turn me over to rescue. Let me tell you what, I am feeling great now!!! The "stink" they said I had came from my ears and face...my ears were so infected, and had been that way for a very long time, and all I needed was a good bath and a good brushing!!! My face and nose roll were washed and I am feeling like a new Pug man. I was taken straight to the vet by the nice MMR ladies, and I am in excellent health. I had previously been found to be Lyme positive, but had never been given antibiotics from my previous "family". I will be on antibiotics for one month, and will be just fine. I do not have any symptoms and will not have any lasting affects from the Lyme Disease. I am up to date on my vaccines, and have been microchipped. I now have medicine for my ears, too! I am scheduled for my neuter in mid October, and then I will be ready for my forever home! The only vetting my family EVER gave me was my rabies shots. My vets told them about my ears and Lyme, but they refused to treat me for it. My foster Mom threw away that one, dirty toy that I had, and showed me the HUGE pug toy box....I love stuffed toys, and my favorite is a pink bunny(but don't tell anyone). I sleep with it in my crate. I am learning about playing, and hugs, and petting, and being allowed to sit on the couch with all my pug foster siblings. I will jump on the couch when asked, but don't stay too long....I was never allowed to be on the furniture in the old home, so I am not quite sure that this is ok.......but each time, I stay a little longer on the couch with my foster Mom and Dad. I am a quiet, friendly boy. I get along with all dogs, the resident cat, and adore children. I don't even bark when the other pugs go crazy when someone rings the doorbell....I just wag my tail! I would like to go to a home with at least one other dog and school age children. I would like to have a fenced yard to play in, too. I would love to have one parent that stayed home during the day, but I am fine if they don't. I am housebroken, do not mark, and love my crate. My foster Mom says I am perfect! Like any Pug, I just want someone to love me, play with me, feed me quality food, and never, ever make me feel unwanted or lonely again. Be sure to apply for me today at www.muttsmatterrescue.com My adoption fee is $400

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Doug, a Rockville Pug dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pug for sale in Rockville, or seeking a Pug dog from a breeder in Rockville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Rockville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Rockville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pug breeders who help with Pug rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Rockville paves the way for another one to be saved.
