Unfortunately, there are a great number of pugs needing "forever" homes at the moment.

We have the most beautiful rescued girls ranging from 1 year to 4 years of age - both fawns and blacks. As soon as we receive these girls they are shampooed, conditioned, receive flea treatments, are wormed and desexed.

We then spend as much time as each individual girl needs in rehabilitation. We introduce them to grass, steps, living inside, beds, toys and being picked up. Many need to learn not to be frightened of a kiss or a hug, and how to relax and not go rigid with fear when they are picked up. Many of these rescues have been purchased from pet shops and left outside by themselves in a tiny courtyard, or they have lived in large sheds and used for breeding.

It is a true indication how resilient this amazing breed is, when after just a few short weeks of running in the huge Mornington Lodge gardens and paddocks, swimming in the dam, sleeping in a warm bed and having unlimited toys, attention and hugs - these pugs blend in with my own team and you couldn't tell the difference between the rescued pugs and the spoilt-rotten-all-their-lives pugs :))

Please see below the current girls who are up for adoption now, and below them we will shortly list the girls that are currently being rehabilitated and will be up for adoption later, or foster now.

IF YOU CAN'T ADOPT BUT WOULD LIKE TO DONATE ..... Donations can be made Here

Both of these rescues above are now living with Rachel :))

Missy and Edward

Our rescue girl Missy ... she was emaciated and 7 weeks pregnant in this photo on the day she arrived at Mornington Lodge!


Missy with her "litter"
Two days after the above photo, having shown absolutely no signs of being ready to give birth, Missy had one tiny baby on the end of my bed at 4.15am.

She later gave birth to two mummified puppies who had been dead for quite some time - so it was a miracle that little Penelope had survived and was healthy.

Later that same day .. we received a call from Victorian Dog Rescue; could we help?? They had a situation with a 10 year old chihuahua who was full of puppies - she was dead, the puppies were all dead - and there was one little survivor, hours old.

The vet clinic brought him over - and there was Edward.
Missy was too emaciated to have any milk, so both Penelope and Edward were tube fed and bottle fed every two hours. Missy did a great job cleaning them however, and 'pretending' to feed them :) (Missy and Penelope have since gone to their new home together and now live with Andrew and Amy in Seaford. )

By making a donation of as little $5 per week, you can help feed, medicate and re-home each and every rescue, both now and in the future.

Unfortunately we have to pay $500- $800 for each entire female that we rescue - otherwise they are at risk of ending up on Trading Post, available for purchase by other puppy farmers or pet shops, hoping to breed further litters from them.

On top of the purchase price, we are paying for desexing, rotten teeth removal and the treatment of skin and ear infections. The minimum cost of each pug is therefore approximately $1200. Some pugs have even greater veterinary costs, as they have huge bladder stones caused by lack of water during their life in a shed.

Whilst there are homes out there who are perhaps looking to adopt an older pug - many are only able to pay half the costs - which leaves us short to buy/vet work more pugs in need.

Any donations that you can make are greatly appreciated, and go solely towards the purchase of pugs needing rescue.

Without your donations – there will not be anywhere for these pugs to go and treatment will not be possible.

We have our book keeper, Fiona, detailing all income and expenditure - which is available for viewing via email at any time upon request.

Photos of present and past adoptees

Fiz and Olive at playI found that these three girls - who have had nothing ... no beds, toys, grassy areas to play on or human companionship - were very grateful for everything they got, and simply did not seem to know how to demand anything like normal dogs.

Donna was VERY friendly, very outgoing - loved children. She loved the water, and would dive into her drinking bowl if the weather got too hot.

a toy each

Fiz having a great roll in the
freshlycut paddock grass one

Olive is just so cute!

Beatrix and Bridget having a first run on the grass, ever!

The Raevon pugs are fantastic with all newly rescued pugs - and accept them as part of the family immediately
Little, terrified Billie (on the right) coming out of her shell to play with Charlotte - who makes everyone feel at home very quickly

We took these two girls for their first ever walk out in the Mornington Lodge paddocks - they couldn't believe it!

Some of the girls that were waiting to be rehabilitated enjoying their first ever chew treat. It took me 15 minutes to convince them that it was okay to take it from me, and that it was actually for them to enjoy.

The Pug Club of Victoria have been a huge support for pug rescue .. pictured is the Club President Dale Taylor, Fiz and the founder of Oscar's Law - Debra Tranter.
