Can you tell me why so many Pugs are put up for adoption? Do they have some habit that people can't deal with, like snoring or something? We have very few rescue groups in this area, but the largest one is for Pugs. I know you're a fan of the breed, so what are the best things about Pugs and the worst?

Hey Bonnie,

I never thought about why "so many" Pugs are coming through the "rescue networks", and really can't explain why.

From what I've seen, many seem to owner surrenders / abandoned / or lost found cases. The majority of this group are surrenders by an elderly, or seriously declining owner who simply cannot provide basic care for their pooch any longer. Most pugs I see coming through are "very seasoned citizens". The are 8 - 9+ years old.

There are some, like Sonny, whose current owners aren't able to deal with a new medical condition and hope the rescue can find someone who can.

All in all, it seemes the Pug is a breed which will not fend for itself very well, unattended, so they become very "visible" when not under someone's care. They sure aren't hunters.

The group in the Mempis area, Mid South Pug Rescue, probably helps between 50 and 100 a year, at some level.
