Good Morning all my friends here at pugspot! I needed to talk to you guys and get your input on a situation at our house that started yesterday. Most of you know we have two pugs, Stella and Sammy. They came from a kennel not in the best condition but are doing just great with us. Since then I started to read up on kennel dogs etc. and it about broke my heart to see the conditions they have to live in. I have debated with myself back and forth about getting another rescue pug and finally came to peace with myself that financially, emotionally, and physically 2 pugs, working full time, 7 grandchildren and BUTCH is about all I can handle. Case closed! My heart was sealed!
Last night I came home from work and Butch told me to go look in the bathroom. There in the corner shivering and crying was this little fawn pug girl! I looked at Butch and asked WTH? His story is that he went to the locker to get some meat, he saw the woman out in her yard where we got our other puggies and stopped, she asked him if he wanted a fawn pug for FREE (LOOLOLOLOLOL..freellLOLOLOLOL) and of course he brought her home! I called the woman back and she's laughing cos I am upset and she knows its breaking my heart, I ask her information about the puggie and she tells me she is five years old, always been a breeder pug, and never been out of her kennel. She lost her last two litters so the guy that runs the place was going to get rid of her (and not by going to the vet!!) So she put her in the basement in a cage (like stella). All the time I was talking to her, I was holding the puggie and she was shaking looking at me, with the most saddest face I had ever ever seen. Stella and Sam were beside me, and I looked at them and I looked at her, and there was absolutely no comparsion in their faces. OUr pugs looked happy and well cared for, she looked sad and sad and sad and miserable. She said if we didn't want her we could bring her back! WHAT!!! How could I send her back to that fate, BUT I just wanted to kill Butch!! I am so mad at him I can't even talk to him today!
So she ended up sitting on my lap with Stellie most of the night. at bedtime she went into the bathroom and slept all night. She quit shaking and wagged her tail at me alot! She was so thankful! Butch called me this morning and said she was up running around with stella and sam. He is taking her out to the vet this morning to get checked out! I am so proud of stella, she was like the ambassador of our home, Sam barked most of the night at her! I am just torn up about her , and I know there is no way I could send her back, and I already am falling in love with her, BUT i am still mad! Am I a heartless witch!?? I know she will have some problems from her history what do i need to look for, and how do i handle these next few weeks....of course she is not potty trained...she smells terrible, and has horrible bad breath....and the list goes on and on......(I named her Trudy)
