Facts about Madeline

  • Breed: Pug
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: T0391
Little Madeline was found roaming the streets. She is diabetic with severe glaucoma and has no sight. She requires a strict insulin schedule with doses twice a day, along with a low glucose diet and different eye meds to keep her eyes comfortable and under control. When she was first admitted to the facility, she was extremely skinny, visible ribs and all and she was frightened, shaky and unsure of her surroundings. Surprisingly, considering how small and malnourished she was, she showed a very healthy appetite right away! It didn’t take long at all for her to relax and show off her charming personality! Despite being blind, Madeline remains as curious and in tune with her surroundings as any other dog. You will often see her (slowly) wandering around the pen, sniffing around and politely saying hello to the other senior dogs. She can easily find her way to the water bowl and favorite bed cushion. When she is on her cushion, you’ll sometimes spot her doing the curious head tilt move, seemingly enjoying herself and absorbing in all the sounds. Not being able to see has not limited her at all apparently, as she seemed to have developed super hearing in the process! She responds right away when you call her name. When you call her, she’ll tilt her head then walk directly towards you. If you’re sitting down she’ll climb up and lay on your lap. If you continue walking she’ll gladly follow you around with the sound of your footsteps! She also loves to be picked up and coddled. Maddy is a very well behaved, loyal, easy going gal who’d make the perfect lap dog.

About Pug Nation Rescue of Los Angeles

About Our Rescue Group...

Pug Nation Rescue of Los Angeles is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, care, and placement of abandoned, neglected, unwanted, displaced, and abused pugs. Our goal is to find every homeless pug a forever home; if we cannot do that, we pledge to provide a comfortable and loving place for sick or unwanted pugs to live out their lives. Our Board of five and numerous volunteers are passionate about Pug Rescue and live by our motto of “One Pug at a Time”. We feel that through our efforts we can change many of these forgotten Pug’s lives. In order to find our Pugs a home as soon as possible, we hold at least three adoption fairs a month and also organize a number of fundraising events, including the annual Pugtacular festival and Legendary Bingo at Hamburger Mary’s in West Hollywood. These events and on-line fundraising have provided the money to help pay for vet treatments, medicine and loving care at our Pug Station. We rely on the generosity of our supporters through donations and participation in our fundraising activities. If you would like to make a donation, find out about the next event, become a volunteer, foster, or adopt your own rescue pug, you are in the right place! You can also follow us on Facebook and twitter, there is always something going on and new pugs needing your help.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Please see our website for upcoming Adoption Fairs. We have two standing fairs at Tailwaggers, 801 N. Fairfax Ave in West Hollywood - the 2nd Saturday and 4th Sunday of every month. We are in Northridge every other month and at various sevents - check our event calendar for up-to-date info!

Our Adoption Process...

We require an application either online through our website or in person at our facility or one of our events. Once we receive the application we will schedule a home visit. After approval, you are eligible to adopt any available dog. Our fees range from $85 - $500 depending upon age. $500 would be for a pure pug puppy (which we rarely get), $85 would be for a mixed breed over 8 years old.
