i prefer dogs over cats, however i lived with a cat thanks to my ex room mate, so i don't have problem with them. But i had a german shepherd for 15 years so i have eternal love for dogs.

Default 3 Puggles

Well we have three Puggles, all very different. All rescues that we have had since they were young, Maddie is my buddy, Meeka is my wife's, and Marley (who was born deaf) is a character and is everyone's friend (she "listens better than the other two).

I'm new so the forum won't let me post pics yet (I guess). So I will have to spend some time here first then I will post the pics.

After you post 5 times, you should be able to post pics.

Default Trying Again w/ Pics

As I stated earlier we have 3 Puggles, all are very different and all are rescues from various situations. Maddie is my buddy as you can see by where she lands when I get up to go to work. Meeka looks most like a Pug and is my Wife's best friend. Marley is a character and everyone's friend, despite the fact that she was born deaf (she "listens" better than the other two).

How cute, and how good of you and your wife to give a home to rescue dogs. Both of my dogs were rescues, too.

Maddie looks right at home on the bed.

She's comfortable anyplace. Found her running in the country dirty, skin and bones. Took six days to reign her in, she's been family since.

It's been a while since anyone posted to this thread, and we now have several new active members, so I thought it'd be nice bring this thread up again.

I had 4 dogs total. All of them were rescued dogs. My first was Beau. He was a Husky. We decided to give him a companion. She was a chow-chow mix named Sadie. She looked full chow except for her snout. She had a lab's snout vice the typical squished snout of a chow. About 3 years after we acquired Beau and Sadie, we rescued Sandy, a boxer. She was literally on her way to the pound. We kept her until we could find a home. Yeah, right!

These 3 companions helped me through some tough times. Sadly, I had to put Sandy down. She had cancer. Two months later, Beau died. I think of a broken heart. Sadie was spiraling down hill, when co-workers convinced me to adopt a puppy. His name was Tyler, a German Shepherd mix. Sadie seemed to liven up when she saw him and mothered him until her death.

That left Tyler and me. For some reason, we were not a good fit. I didn't like Tyler, and he didn't like me. Whose not going to love their dog and what dog isn't going to love their master? Well, we didn't. I don't understand why.

I rehomed Tyler, and he is now living with his new owner. Funny story, well, not so funny, but after I rehomed him, I went to visit him. Actually, I promised his new master an unopened bag of food. When I dropped it off, Tyler looked at me with this worried look in his eyes. I guess he thought I was there to take him home!

I didn't open the gate. I stood on the other side of the gate and said 'hi.' Then, I extended my hand so he could sniff. I asked the new master to say something so that Tyler could hear his voice. That did the trick. He warmed up to me and licked my hand. I think that was the first time he did that since he was a puppy.

I'm pet-less, and I will keep it that way for a while. I am interested in adopting a small dog I can keep inside my house. I'm thinking maybe a maltipoo.

This is a great thread!

If I already posted my pet pics, please forgive me.

I have 2 cats. Some folks say I rescued them, but the truth is, they rescued me.

I adore them, but they drive me insane!

A few years ago we added a 10-year-old rescue dog to our house. She's at least some part Bichon Frise and answers to Dimbulb (that's not her real name; she's just none too bright and an incredibly slow learner). Like many rescue "pups" there always are little surprises (no, not that kind!) in how they behave...


That's Dimbulb, in typical form, trying to get the treat out of the narrow end of the Kong.
