Hello! I wanted to share a short writeup for our pug Roxy, who we adopted through pug rescue last July (2012). Attached is a picture of her sitting in her favorite chair.
We have had Roxy, our female rescue, for a year and half, and we cannot imagine life without her now. She came into the system when she was ten years old, and was diagnosed with mast cell cancer. Today her mast cell spots have not advanced, and she is as happy and healthy as any pug pup. She has so much energy and is BLAZING fast; the biggest challenge is keeping up with her! She also likes to lie in our laps for hours at a time. She won’t budge; she just loves people that much. She is perfectly behaved, never wakes us at night, never harms the furniture, always goes to the bathroom outside, gets along with our other pug, loves our cat (and the cat strangely loves her!); she just couldn’t be a better dog. She recently started “smiling” and she has “told” us that she really leads a joyous and happy life. But her parents are the ones who have experienced the most joy, because we now have an extra sweet pug who waits for us every day to come home, is always glad to see us, never complains, and truly enriches our lives. However long we have with Roxy, be it a few more months or a few more years, adopting her was a fantastic decision that we are thankful for every single day.
