Rosie

Rosie - Pug Rescue of Florida

This beautiful creature is Rosie.  They don’t come any more puggie than her.  She is a sweetheart through and through with all the “pug charm” any pug lover could ever ask for.She is approximately 3 years old and just a little chunky at 24 pounds.  She and her foster mom are both trying to lose a couple of pounds 😉

She is 100% potty trained, gets along with everything and everyone.  She loves leash walks, hiding toys under her bed, and hanging with her humans and her fellow foster pugs.  She wakes up happy and stays that way all day.

Since she is so agreeable, she will be a good fit for a lot of homes but here is what she told her foster mom that she is looking for:

  • another small fun dog to hang with
  • dog experienced humans that will let her sleep in the bed and  will not be gone for more than 4 hours at a time
  • a fenced yard
  • no kids under the age of 5 please
  • no big dogs (they scare her)

If this sounds like you … please apply today to adopt her because you might be Rosie’s love match.

Rosie is scheduled to be spayed on June 13th and then she will ready to start her new and improved forever life with some lucky family.   She is fostered in the Villages.  Her adoption fee is only $450.

June 6, 2017 Rosie Update:
We are sorry to report that we found a small suspicious looking bump on this little darling.  We had the vet do a needle aspirate and send it off to the lab.  Unfortunately, like with so many pugs, it did come back as “Mast Cell Cancer”.    Therefore, when Rosie goes in for her spay on June 13th, the vet will also remove the lump and send it off for pathology.  Hopefully, when the pathology is received back, it will say that it is a low grade cancer, and that the vet got clean margins.  But we will not know the full nature of Rosie’s cancer until the pathology is received which takes about 10 days after submission (so approx. June 26th).
For those of you that are not familiar with Mast Cell Cancer, it comes in many different sizes and shapes… low grade, slow growing is what we are praying for and what is most common in pugs.  If the vet gets clean margins (no cancer in the surrounding area), they will say the surgery was “curative” and it “should” not return but there are no guarantees and the pug should always be watched for other new bumps, that would need to be evaluated further and removed if needed.
Rosie needs a forever human family that is prepared, both financially and emotionally, to watch over and provide any further treatment that she might need.
