When I was a kid I never imagined I would be the mom to 2 and a half pugs! I say half, because I like to poke fun at Mr.Dixon for being a Puggle. But they are like potato chips, once you meet them you know you can’t resist! These 3 little fur babes are the reason I am here today.


Both of childhood dogs passed away within 3 months of each other in early 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 alone I knew she was my soulmate and best friend for life ❤️


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 they confirmed she had no owner and with a week of full meals to fatten her up, I knew she found me 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, snuggles & well, food! She loves to wake me up in the mornings by playing the drums on my face ☺


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 but they could no longer afford to pay for his medical expenses as he had untreatable allergies. So with the help of SNPR, we got him medical care and he’s been with me ever since! His allergies inspired me to go after the holistic lifestyle. Now he’s a Mama’s boy that stances for food and loves walks 🐶

When we know better, we can do better.
