Norman has such a happy face..
Because since coming to Pug Rescue his life has gone from sad to ace..
Norman loves his people to be around so he can hang out..
He tells us that's what the pug life is all about..
He is slowly learning the joy of play..
And enjoys a 15+ minute walkie every day..
Norman is upset because 2 years ago Pug Rescue advised to have him desexed, how to toilet train & to taking him to the eye specialist to his old family..
Instead of that they kept him on a balcony..
Thankfully Norman has come to Pug Rescue now to start a new life....
And has had $1600+ of discounted vet care including desexed, vaccintion, a lump was removed from his neck & a dental to remove his crusty rotten teeth so he is no longer in strife..
He's also been to Melbourne Eyevet as one of his eyes was sore & covered in pigmentary keratitis & he now has some special eye drops twice a day to make his eye feel better and regain eye sight...
It would be great if Norman's eyes could let in some more light..
Norman has been working on his manners in Pug Rescue foster care..
He now understand how to be handled, not growl and bite, not jump & not pee everywhere..
He will still bark at loud noises and is learning not to mouth but he will get there..
Norman wonders if you can adopt him..
He promises to repay you with a massive puggy grin..

Please visit our website and read our 'is a pug for you' page before you consider applying to adopt 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.
Norman has undergone a dental whilst in care
Norman has pigmentary keratitis on his eyes and requires daily Maxidex & Tacrolimus eye drops to help restore his eye sight.
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.
