Facts about Cleopatra

  • Breed: Pug
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: S0799
Poor Cleo was an owner turn in at a local shelter; she cannot walk and is incontinent, so her owner must have given up on her. She does extremely well in a wheelchair, however! Granted, taking care of a special needs Pug is difficult at times, but so rewarding. We can show you how to express Cleopatra’s bladder, it’s not difficult at all once you get the hang of it. She does well with other dogs that aren't high energy. They tend to make her a little nervous and she nips at them. She will also nip if any dogs come around her while she is eating. This old girl deserves love and security for her remaining years. We hope that special person is out there for her.

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.
