Foster Update:  June 6, 2020

Notcho decided to speed up his introductory vet visit.  He developed a lump near his butt and it required a trip to the vet.   Turned out to be an abscess that ruptured the morning of his visit.  He was put on antibiotics and blood, urinalysis and fecal tests were done.  He was a less than stellar patient and foster mom felt bad since she couldn't go in with him.

Dr. Z did manage to see at least one retained baby tooth, there could be more but Notcho wasn't having it. He has been booked in for June 25th to have his hernia repaired and a dental. The anal gland issue is better after the round of meds but the vet will check it out again on the 25th. Notcho continues to be a fantastic house guest.


Foster Update:  April 30, 2020

Notcho fits right in with the resident pugs. He was a little shy at first but now that he's settled in has shown his funny personality. 


Notcho loves to let the squirrels know they're not welcome in his backyard and when he sees them out the patio door, he wants out to chase them off.  He loves running around the yard with the resident pugs.


Notcho loves human companionship and the closer he can get to you, the better.  He sleeps in the big bed and will let me know it's bedtime by heading to the bedroom door and waiting to be lifted up on the bed.


He plays with the others but also is quite happy to play by himself with the toys. He has been enjoying walks around the neighbourhood and sniffing every tree, pole or anything that's vertical.  

Introduction - April 5, 2020

Notcho is a 3 year old male neutered pug that arrived a week ago.  He was a little uncertain when he first met his resident brothers and sister and would just sit by himself.

Notcho has settled in more and now loves to go out and run in the backyard with them and boy can he run fast. He was said to have a problem with peeing in the house but with strict supervision and the help of a belly band he's been very good.


Notcho will need his initial vet once over and has a small hernia that will need to be repaired once things get back to somewhat normal. 

 365 pugs rescued since October, 2005
