We love you!
Such a cheeky face...
Tofu thinks his life is now just ace..
He adores toys...
Which he tosses around and kills with joy...
And boy does he love to play with his puggy mates..
He thinks wrestle mania is just great..
After being through several homes and then dropped at a shelter...
In this summer weather being obese & needing airway surgery he was beginning to swelter...
Of course when we were contacted Pug Rescue said yes to taking him in...
We promised to fix him...
And along the way make him thin..
At nearly 9 years young Pug Rescue has now spent $2,000+ desexed, performed a dental and much needed airway and nostril surgery at Knox Vet Clinic on this little guy..
The way he struggled to breath before surgery would make anyone cry..
He has also visit Melbourne EyeVet for eye drops to restore vision and remove pigment from his eyes..
Tofu is also happy to say..
That those Pug Rescue people have helped him calm down his ADD type behaviour, learn to be touched all over and also picked up without being silly and screaming so he is a much happier puggy boy yay...
Tofu hopes that somewhere out there a perfect forever home awaits him..
One that will adore his beautiful little puggy grin..

Please visit our website and read our 'is a pug for you' page before you consider applying to adopt Tofu. 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.
Adopt Tofu from Pug Rescue & Adoption Victoria Inc. who have rescued, rehabbed and care for him
** Tofu has lost weight whilst in Pug Rescue's care
**Tofu has undergone a dental whilst in Pug Rescue's care
**Tofu has undergone airway surgery whilst in Pug Rescue's care
**Tofu has pigmentary keratitis on his eyes and requires twice daily Tacrolimus & Maxidex eye drops to remove this and restore his vision. www.melbourneeyevet.com.au
**Tofu has an altered hind gait which may be due to an old spinal injury that has healed or a condition he was born with. He still walks at a very steady pace for 15+ minutes and has absolutely no problem in getting around, playing or toileting.
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.
