Buzz and Shelby are now brothers that live together, however they both have very different reasons for being MuffinPug Rescue Dogs. Buzz was a very lucky boy to be in the care of MuffinPug Rescue. We were alerted to a female pug who was up for sale, when we went to pick her up, we found three of her puppies with her. They all looked in a terrible state. Unfortunately they wouldn’t let us have the 3 puppies as we didn’t have enough money on us, so we created an urgent fundraising appeal between the Fairy Pug Mothers and Fathers to raise enough to save all 4 of them. Jessie, the mum was only 11 months old and the puppies were very young at about 6-8 weeks old. All 4 suffered with demodex mange and their skin was terrible, but poor little Buzz was also suffering from pneumonia. It was touch and go if he would survive. He pulled through, and now he is loving his life but will always have a weak chest and requires ongoing care.
Shelby is 14 months old and is deaf. He has a heart condition called pulmonic stenosis. After a full heart scan and check up with one of our vets we have been advised it is a 7 out of 10 on the severity scale. As he is a bulldog it makes it extremely hard for them to operate, therefore is on heart medication for the rest of his life. We hope that he lives a long life, but there is a chance his condition may eventually catch up with him. Buzz and Shelby will need constant medical attention from MuffinPug Rescue, but they are leading a loving and happy life.
