Hi everyone! My name is Miss Heidi and I am a 5-6 year old pug lady. I used to live mostly outdoors in a cage with a bunch of other pug, and I am not used to the good life. DFW Pug Rescue heard about me and some of my friends and they came to my rescue! I am adjusting to this great new world of sleeping on soft covers and not tinkling in the house. My foster mom says that I am a fast learner and that I am going to find my very own home soon! I rely on the other pugs here to show me how to behave, as I am used to being around mostly dogs. I sometimes get a little anxious when I am alone at night, so I like sleeping with the other pugs here. Did I say I love treats? Well, I love treats!! I will do a really cute spin or army crawl for one. But mostly I just loved being treated special. I don’t jump up on the furniture and I like to watch baseball and animal shows. I am still trying to figure out how those animals get behind the TV! I need a home with people who have lots of time and love for a special girl like me who is still learning how to be an inside puggy. I am eager to please, I love being petted, and I think I will need other small dogs like me around for companionship, comfort, and to play with. So, if you think that you have a great forever home for me, just fill out your application today!
More information about DFW Pug Rescue Club, Inc
Rescue Group Info...
DFW Pug Rescue Club, Inc., (DFWPRC) was incorporated in July 1997 as a non-stock, non-profit corporation for the rescue, care, and placement of unwanted, mistreated, or homeless pugs in Texas.
DFWPRC is the largest pug rescue organization in the United States and has rescued and placed over 3,800 huggable, squeezable, absolutely adorable pugs â€” we rescue approximately 10 pugs a week.
We rescue ALL pugs regardless of age or medical condition. Since we rescue ALL pugs, our veterinary care is our biggest on-going expense and we average approximately $100,000 a year in veterinary expenses. This amount is after our veterinary care clinics provide deep discounts. 100% of all funds donated to DFW Pug Rescue are used to pay for Veterinary care.
All pugs rescued by DFWPRC are taken immediately to the vet where they are examined, tested (and treated) for heartworm, vaccinated, sterilized, and rabies shots administered before being placed in a foster or permanent home.
70% or the rescue pugs are heart worm positive and all are treated at DFWPRCâ€™s expense
DFWPRC is an all-volunteer non-profit organization and do not have a staging area to hold our rescue pugs so we depend on the generosity of our volunteers to provide foster homes until permanent homes can be located.
DFWPRC has placed pugs in 26 states, British Columbia, Canada, Germany, and Japan. All pugs must be picked up in Dallas/Fort Worth or Houston by their new families â€” no pugs are shipped.
The majority of our pugs are owner surrender due to military deployment, death, divorce, relocation, new baby, marriage, travel, and estate placements.
DFWPRC is not affiliated or sponsored by any national or local breed clubs.
We rescue more males than females (10 to 1), more fawns than blacks (40 to 1), and the average of our rescue pugs is 4-years old. The average life span of a pug is between 14 â€“ 17 years.
We maintain a Certificate of Good Standing with the Texas State Comptrollerâ€™s Office. DFW Pug Rescue Club, Inc. is a non-profit corporation with Federal Tax Exemption as a public charity under Section 501 (c) 3 of the Internal Revenue Code.
