Meet Max, aka Mac, aka the Macster Pug #22-43

A sweet little 12 year old fella surrendered in love by his previous owner who due to age felt she could no longer give him the life and love he so deserves.

Max does not consider himself a senior, and don’t let him hear you say that he is. Max is described as the friendliest little creature loving all he meets. He loves kids, cats, dogs, you name it. But is also respectful and not overbearing. Max loves his daily walks, smelling the roses and enjoying the great outdoors. So no couch potatoes, he loves his walks and playtime. Max spends his days running full on Zoomies, colorfully described by his foster mom as “Racing the Indy 500” with his foster sister. Max was a bit itchy upon his arrival to GMPR, but with medicated baths 2 x a week and a higher quality food he’s living the itch free life! Max is currently eating Hill’s Derma to control his skin issues and takes Apoquel 5.4mg; 1 tablet/day. Max appears to be fully house trained, no accidents. Continued monitoring and reminders are of course recommended as with any transition into a new home.

Max is fully vetted aside from a dental scheduled for Aug 17, 2022, he will be ready to move on to his forever home a few days afterwards.

Max’s adoption fee is $200.

If you’d like to learn more about Max please submit an inquiry.

Meet Miss Millie #22-31.

Millie is a 6 yr old Boston Terrier who came to us once retired from breeding. Millie is absolutely beautiful, it’s easy to see why she was used heavily for puppy production. She is extremely shy of handling and displays all of the typical puppy mill fear. Millie is still learning what friendly human contact is all about and has come a long way in just a short time with her foster mom. She prefers her “safe space” which is an xpen, always open, allowing her to come and go as she pleases. Housetraining is still a work in progress and she may never be fully housebroken given her history. Consistency and patience is the key. Millie enjoys the company her foster dog sister, she would do best in a home with another dog for companionship. Millie gets along with all dogs, flat out ignores the cats. Millie is recommended for a quiet adult only, dog savvy household who can appreciate her origin and give her all the time she needs to become a more confident dog. Millie is fully vetted and ready to move onto her forever home.

Millie’s adoption fee is $300.
To learn more about Mille please submit an inquiry.

Meet Ringo, Pug #22-55

Ringo is a HOUSEBROKEN 9 yr old fawn male pug who was surrendered to us because his previous owner couldn’t afford his medical needs and was moving to a warmer climate where he wouldn’t do well with his breathing….But no worries, Ringo is described as a very goofy, fun-loving gentleman who holds no grudges. He’s good with dogs, cats and loves kids, a true Velcro pug who wants to be with his human at all times. He breathing is a bit raspy so he will have his soft palate done along with his dental and neuter on 9/8/22. He will be ready for his forever home a few days thereafter.

Ringo’s adoption fee is $250.

***MEDICAL HOLD, OPEN TO APPROVED APPLICANTS ON OUR WAITLIST***

Meet Hydro, Pug #22-56

Hydro is a 10 year old Pug/Pom mix and described as quite a hoot. He's very sweet and affectionate giving kisses with or without request. He’s mostly quiet, shy at first but warms up quickly. He gets so excited when his foster mom returns home that he runs to the living room rug and throws himself onto his back and kicks all 4 feet around in the air. He's 100% potty trained and has been known to let himself outside for potty or play, so make sure the door is securely closed. He’s a good leash walker and is crate trained but prefers your lap or a comfy dog bed. He’s great with other dogs, cat tested and kid approved. He’s a bigger boy at 31 lbs (approx.) and can knock a toddler over in excitement, so he would need some reminders in good manners. He lives for belly rubs, he’s very much a pug personality and full of joy to bring to his new forever family. Hydro needs a general check up at the vet and likely a dental, he’ll be available for his forever home shortly thereafter.

Hydro’s adoption fee is $200, if you’d like to learn more about Hydro please contact us.

***MEDICAL HOLD, OPEN TO PRE-APPROVED APPLICANTS ON OUR WAITLIST***

Meet Wilbur the Pink Pug #22-51! And it is pronounced just like that, Willlbuuuurrr. Wilbur is a 2.5 yr old male who came into GMPR by way of a multi-rescue collaboration effort. And yes, he’s PINK! Wilbur is uniquely striking due to his coloring and looks as though he’s always winking at you based on a previously untreated eye issue. Poor little Wilbur suffered from Grade 4 patella in both hind legs. He had surgery Aug 29, 2022 to correct this as well as his eye issue. He had his left eye removed to prevent any future infections and has limited vision in his right eye. He will spend some time recovering with follow-up vet visits to ensure all is healing properly. His limited vision does not stop him from participating in typical silly pug play with furry friends, toys, you name it. He loves other dogs and kids and genuinely craves their company. He has not been cat tested but based on his easy going, friendly nature it should not be an issue and he certainly would never give chase. Wilbur cannot do stairs and had a ramp at his foster home that he was able to navigate just fine. Wilbur is not currently housebroken and has a quirky circling habit so it can be difficult to interpret his “signs”. But with consistency and patience maybe he can get there, but in the meanwhile that’s why they invented belly bands. He’s a bit thin, and as any good pug knows some good eating and care will remedy that quickly. While all dogs are susceptible to sunburn with prolonged sun exposure, with his striking pink coat comes additional concerns and precautions. A cute coverup or dog safe sunscreen would be required on long days outside (make sure its dog safe and free from zinc oxide).

The ideal home for Wilbur would be a home with another dog for companionship, limited stairs (more so for your back when carrying), lots of lap time snuggling and of course plenty of toys, treats and attention!

Wilbur’s adoption fee is $400.
If you’d like to learn more about Wilbur please submit an inquiry.

Meet Arnie, the Pink Pug #22-52! Arnie is a 3.5 yr old male who came into GMPR by way of a multi-rescue collaboration effort. And yes, he’s PINK! Arnie is uniquely striking due to his coloring and has captured the hearts of everyone he meets. Arnie was a star at Pug Camp, all wanted to stop by and offer a belly scratch, to which of Arnie happily obliged. Poor little Arnie suffered from Grade 4 patella in both hind legs, he had surgery Aug 29, 2022 and came through like a champ. He will spend some time recovering with follow-up vet visits to ensure all is healing properly. Arnie is HOUSEBROKEN but must be kept on his schedule for consistency. He’s a bit thin, but as any good pug knows some good eating and care will remedy that quickly. And while all dogs are susceptible to sunburn with prolonged sun exposure, with his striking pink coat comes additional concerns and precautions. A cute coverup or dog safe sunscreen would be required on long days outside (make sure its dog safe and free from zinc oxide).

The ideal home for Arnie would be an active family with kids or another young dog he can play with. Since he loves to run, a fenced in yard to play or regular leashed walks to help burn all that pink pug energy would be ideal.

Arnie's adoption fee is $350.
If you’d like to learn more about Arnie please submit an inquiry.

Meet Little Miss Mae, Pug #22-57

Mae is a 5 year old fawn female who loves her human companion more so than other furry family members. Velcro with a capital “V”. She’s fine with other dogs and minds her manners like a true lady, but nothing compares 2 U as Sinead O’Connor would say…Mae found her way to GMPR because her previous owner was moving to assisted living and wanted to do right by this little lady. Mae was apparently little miss bossy pants in her previous home and wanted all of her mom’s attention to herself, but in her foster home she has been a perfect lady. She needs to work on her housebreaking, but consistency, patience and a happy dance (from you) will get her there quick as she aims to please. You can clean her wrinkles, ears, cut her nails, do whatever you want to her so long as you’re mutually staring lovingly into each other’s eyes. She is very accommodating. Mae can be a barker, not excessive, more so separation anxiety. So someone who is home more than not would be ideal. And to those of you who live in an apartment or condo, your neighbors may not appreciate Mae’s vocalizing. To anyone looking for a loyal companion who will live her life to be by your side, Mae is your girl.

Mae is spayed and up to date on all vetting, she needs to lose a pound or two to get down to her fighting weight, but ready and eager to make you the focal point of her world..

Mae’s adoption fee is $300

Meet Bandit the Peke-a-Pug, Pug #22-59!!

Don’t let that haircut fool you, he is not an extra from a Star Wars film…

Bandit made his way to GMPR by way of owner surrender. They made the difficult decision to surrender based on a family member’s medical condition, they wanted Bandit to have the best that life has to offer.

Bandit is very affectionate and a cuddler, his life goal is to be held by his person. Bandit’s housebreaking is a work in progress, but patience and consistency is key. And belly bands wouldn’t hurt until he grasps concept. He does not give much warning when “it’s time”. He's fine being handled and loves to give kisses. He has shown a touch of jealously over the other pets in the home getting attention, he wants his person all to himself. He has not been cat tested while in GMPR care, but he’s reported to have lived and played with the cats in his original home. He’s fine with the other dogs in his foster home but prefers human companionship over all. He would love to sleep in bed with you, but he’s a toss-n-turner. So while he may be happy as can be, you may not get a good night’s sleep. He did sleep on a dog bed or in a crate in his original home. Bandit is seeking a family that would give him lots of attention, with or without other pets. His surrendering owner’s wish was for him to be placed in a home with children as he spent his days playing with theirs. Bandit's first vet appointment is on October 15, 2022, he requires full vetting before being cleared for adoption.

Bandit’s adoption fee is $400, if you have an approved application on file and you’d like to learn more about Bandit please submit an inquiry.

***OPEN TO NEW APPLICANTS***

Pearl, #22-24, was placed with an amazing family several weeks ago; however, is again available for adoption. She has become fearful and aggressive towards the man in the home. She needs a home with only adult women, with or without children, with or without cats, with or without another dog for company.

Pearl is a 6 year old female Bichon and breeder surrender. Pearl is the sweetest little girl you will ever have the pleasure of knowing! She has overcome so much adversity in her life and it is amazing that she has the capacity to bond and love others. For the past two months she has lived with her adoptive family consisting of mom, dad and 3 & 5 year old boys. Pearl bonded very quickly to the mom. She is living her best life when they are together on the couch. Pearl is not fully house broken but she will pee and poop on the leash, she just needs a consistent schedule. She expects a prompt treat immediately after she does her "business" outside. Pearl knows how to go up the stairs (not down) and recently figured out how to jump on the couch. She is highly motivated by treats and does the cutest "circus dog" dance when she thinks she is going to get a treat. She LOVES cats and desperately wants to be friends with the cats in the home. The cats do not reciprocate, so she respects a safe distance when they alert her to do such. She would really love her "own" kitten. She has learned to love being pet, enjoys belly rubs, and gives lots of kisses. She does great with the children. She takes treats gently out of their hands, and gives them the occasional kiss. She has never shown aggression towards anyone other than the man in the home. When left alone for an extended period of time she's crated with a peanut butter filled Kong. She has only had one accident in her crate. When strangers/guests have come over she maintains a respectful distance and watches with curiosity. If guests are at the kitchen table she will walk around and smell everyone's legs and feet, hoping for something delicious to fall on the floor! She sleeps in bed with her mom all night quietly cuddling and as soon as the alarm goes off she shower's her mom with morning kisses. She does not yet play with toys but does seem intrigued by squeaky toys. She does get playful from time to time. She enjoys laying in the yard and watching all the on goings.

If you have room in your heart and home for this little lady, please consider giving her a safe haven.

Pearl’s adoption fee is $300. If you would like to apply for Pearl, go to our contact form to further inquire.
