Donate directly to Pug Rescue to help care for Nelly and other pugs like her here: www.pugrescue.org.au/donations

Trotting about the house or yard Nelly loves...
Or sitting relaxing with a puggy friend enjoying the warm sunshine from above...

A game of wrestle or chasey is good...
Nelly has practiced very hard and now doesn't jump and sits when told and waits so very well like a good girl should....

She loves treats....
And loves a walk around the park or neighbourhood streets...

Nelly has had two knee surgeries...
A tibial crest transposition and a patella sling suture at Southpaws Specialty Surgery for Animals to fix her painful collapsing wonky knee....

Nelly is so glad that she is fixed and says she can hardly remember her breeding past...
And waiting and waiting in a shelter even though people were nice and the days went by fast...
Whilst all of her other friends found homes or went to rescue groups leaving her as the last...

Because she had medical issues and cost lots of money to fix...
She's very thankful that she found a spot in the care of Pug Rescue Vic...
Nelly has specialist eyedrops from Melbourne EyeVet to keep her blind shrunken eye comfortable and pain free..
And has had an ultrasound to check for a mammary tumour which wasn't found yippy..

Nelly is such a beautiful girl who wants to please everyone...
She can't wait to find a forever home to love her and live out the rest of her life having fun.....

Nelly is seeking a desexed male pug or suitable pug x as a companion. She has always lived with other dogs and adores playing with them and cuddling up to them.
She will not be rehomed as a single pug x or with an unsuitable pug/ pug x or with a female pug/pug x. Please don't ask for her to be.

Nelly require a warm indoor bed and access to her home 24/7.

Nelly is not suitable for a home with cats.

Nelly would be fine with dog friendly children.

Nelly is not suitable for an apartment or unit.

Nelly thrives on good leadership.

Nelly's vet work has cost Pug Rescue $3,000+. She has undergone specialist luxating patella surgery, is desexing, is vaccination, is under the care of an eye specialist and is up to date with her intestinal worm, heart worm and flea prevention.

Nelly's new parents will need to continue with some simple massage and physio exercises for her operated on knee as she will still hold it up when going into a trot. We at Pug Rescue have spent months and months and months rehabbing Nelly and now feel that her forever home can easily continue with the last part of Nelly's rehab. :)
We will provide all the information required and will have Nelly's forever family visit physio Michelle at Dogs In Motion with Nelly for a consult.

Please visit our website and read our 'is a pug for you' page before you consider applying to adopt Nelly. www.pugrescue.org.au

All potential adopters must complete our 'adoption application' form. If we feel that one of our pugs needs suit the lifestyle of a potential adopter we then conduct a phone interview and then a follow up house and yard check.

Please be patient, it may take a few days but we will get back to you. We have many pugs to care for and are staffed by only a very small group of unpaid dedicated volunteers.
*We are located in Victoria, Australia.
**Our pugs are not available for interstate or overseas adoption. Please do not ask as the answer will always be no.
****We do not have a shelter or kennels, with all of our pugs fostered in private volunteers homes.

Adoption Process

Suitable applicants will be contacted by a PUG RESCUE & ADOPTION VICTORIA INC. volunteer 10 to 14 days after their submission of adoption application via email and undergo a phone interview.
On completion of a successful phone interview a meet and greet including house and yard check will be arranged where a PUG RESCUE & ADOPTION VICTORIA INC. volunteer will visit a potential adopters home with the rescue pug that has been applied for. These house checks and meet and greets generally last an hour to an hour and a half and the rescue pug then returns to their PUG RESCUE & ADOPTION VICTORIA INC. foster home with our volunteer and will not be left at a potential adopters home.
A decision to go ahead with an Adoption with a two week trial period will occur within 48 hours of a house check and meet and greet with both the potential adopter and PUG RESCUE & ADOPTION VICTORIA INC. agreeing to an adoption occurring.
PUG RESCUE & ADOPTION VICTORIA INC. reserves the right to not progress to the adoption stage if the house check and meet and greet indicates a potential home is not suitable for the rescue pug in question.

**All adoptions occur through a process of application; which includes questionnaires, telephone conversations and house/property checks.

Unfortunately not all applicants will be able to adopt one of our rescue pugs as we are very fussy to whom our pugs are rehomed to.

Our main priority is making sure every pug is perfectly matched to each new home.

We do not adopt outside the state of Victoria, Australia.
