Festival of Fidos & 15th Annual 5K Race
GMPR is excited to announce that we will be attending this years' Festival of Fidos & 15th Annual 5K Race at Basin Harbor Club in Vergennes on Sunday, June 26th from 10am to 2pm.

GMPR will have a booth ran by board member Amy and volunteers. We will have Pug/GMPR merchandise and homemade gluten-free/preservative-free dog treats for sale and a kissing booth with our GMPR pug mascots Mason, Stewie and Maddie. Amy and volunteers will be happy to tell you all about GMPR and answer questions about the pug breed.

We hope to see you there! Thank you for your support.

2nd Annual Caws4Paws Pet Expo
Gloria, Amy and our newest Board Member Kelli attended the 2nd Annual Caws4Paws Pet Expo located at BOR Arena in Barre, VT. They had two very special pugs with them to run the kissing booth, Stewie and Harley. They were featured on Foxx44/ABC22. To view the news article and watch the video, click here.

Featured Available Pug

Duke is anxiously awaiting his "Forever Home." He has been in foster care for over 9 months. Duke has diabetes and requires Vetsulin injections twice a day. We feel that all of his good qualities far outweigh the fact that he is diabetic. Duke is energetic, smart, and loving. He is housebroken if taken out regularly. He loves to play with his foster sister who is 2 year old female pug. Duke is about 80% blind , but gets around extremely well. His foster family have not tested him with toddlers, but he will do well with dog savvy children. He seems to charm everyone he meets. Duke is a sweetheart and so deserving of a "Forever Family"

Rescued Pug Stories

On May 29, 2016, it was Finny's 1 year anniversary since he was adopted by Nancy and Charles Brubaker of Maine. He celebrated the day with ice cream, a new toy and lots of love. He has become an awesome boy, full of love for his forever family. His parents are happy to have him. He loves everyone he meets and such a sweetie. He is greatly loved by the teens at Proctor Academy and the children at Camps Kenwood and Evergreen.

Thank you for the update Nancy and Charles on Finn!!!
