Thanks to Pugs N Pals, without all of you, we never would have gotten to love and experience the joy of Janneli. She is my cuddle bug and constant supervisor in the kitchen. As time goes on she opens up more and more, she now even barks, we were so shocked the first time we heard it

My Pug suddenly died due to a seizure(which he never had before) while I was attending my grandson grad from high school in Tn. The doggie day care where I left him said this was normal for pugs. Is this true? I rescued him from the Animal Shelter 2 1/2 years ago I am heartbroken.

To best grannie,

Not it is not normal for a dog to just have a seizure all of the sudden. It coul happen, but normally you get some sort of warning by a few small seizures and then one can get them to the Vet and evaluated and in many cases put on anti-seizure meds.

Hi Tina:

The work you do to find homes for these wonderful little Pugs is most commendable.

We had a Pug named Razzle who we adopted at age 1 and lived to a wonderful age of 16.

We decided to rescue another dog and went to the Animal Friends of the Valley in Lake Elsinore last Tuesday. We adopted a cute little 6 year old female Pug. We completed all the paperwork and was told that she would have to be spayed the following day. They said that she had been treated for Kennel cough but was OK for surgery. They took her and some other dogs to a local Vet to be fixed. I got a call on Wednesday afternoon about some other things that needed to be done, ear cleaning, teeth cleaning and also that she was in heat. I wanted to discuss these additional items with my husband and told them that I would call them right back. Well, the Vet called me and told me that the Pug had expired on the table. My husband and I were devastated and can't understand what went wrong. The Vet had told me that she checked her heart and it was strong. The only thing we can think of is that they over-anesthesized her. I don't think they took the precautions needed for a Pug or any short snouted dog.

Now that we think back, we should have taken her to our own Vet to be spayed, rather than a mass production of dogs at one time from a shelter.

I just wanted to give everyone that has a Pug who needs to be neutered or spayed to take note and not let this happen to your dog.

I am trying to get in touch with Pugs N Pals but the website is down and there is no contact phone number or address.

Is this organization still in service and if so, how can I contact them?

Okay I know this is a late comment. I just found the site. I just really wanted to say something. This is one of the most horrible things I have ever seen. My heart broke into a million pieces. I showed my friend the picture and words cannot describe the shock on her face. I am truly puzzled at HOW a human can do something like this. Were there charges put against the owner??
