Meet the real Pugs of Las Vegas

Lily

The pug who saved my life  
Both of childhood dogs passed away within 3 months of each other in 2013 due to unexpected medical illnesses. I was depressed and really needed to fill my heart with the love of a new best friend. I was invited to apply as a Foster for the Southern Nevada Pug Rescue, which 3 months later I got the call asking if I could Foster an adult "black pug". I walked into the vet clinic to pick her up and there she was, just with her smile I knew she was my soulmate and best friend for life.

Luna

My mother and her friend found a fawn pug roaming the streets and not only did she have no collar on but she looked deathly ill. After a trip to the vet to confirm she had a microchip but no owner was registered plus a week of full meals to fatten her up, we knew she found us for a reason. Luna instantly became the yang to Lily's ying and we became a family of 3.
My 'ol lady' as I love to call her, now lives for food, naps & snuggles. She loves to wake me up in the mornings by playing the drums on my face or barking ☺

Dixon

At the time he walked into my life I was a regular volunteer for the Southern Nevada Pug Rescue. I received an email that a Puggle desperately needed a new home. His family had loved him since the day he was born but they could no longer afford to pay for his medical expenses as he was suffering from untreatable allergies. Thanks to the help of SNPR and Dr. Blakesley at Southern Hills Animal Hospital, Dixon has been with us for 3 years now hotspot and pain free! He's a total 'Mama's Boy' and he has fun doing a stance for food & treats!

Meet my secret corgi's Zelda & Winston

My older sister Cassandra is a Professional Dressage Rider and travels often for work. Currently she resides in Germany and during this time I get to become the "Corgi Mom" to my fun and playful niece & newphew duo.

Zelda is a total diva just like my Lily, lives for food like Luna and Dixon has taught her his food stance.

Winston is an old man with degenerative myelopathy. His illness doesn't stop him from living his life to it's fullest and he's one of the many reasons I started this website!
