What a handsome guy

Rufus recently crossed the rainbow bridge at the ripe ole’ age of 14 (almost 15!). He brought us so much joy and was loved beyond measure. Our world is forever changed by him.

Loved by all

He was adopted in 2011 and had a great life and was loved by all. He will be forever missed.

Oback aka Obie

Obie came to CPR as an owner surrender at approximately 12 years old. This little guy required two surgeries for parathyroid carcinoma, and a procedure to remove bladder stones. Due to chronically high calcium levels, the potential for kidney failure, and a degenerative spine condition, he was transitioned into his permanent foster home. Do you think any of these things keep him down though? Of course not! This little love bug stays on the go, and loves being in the middle of whatever is going on at the time.

Some of Obie’s favorite things are feeling time, cuddling, “walking” in his stroller with his foster siblings, and listening to his foster Daddy play guitar(especially Blues tunes). He has become best friends with fellow CPR alumni,Cletus, And they follow Mommy around wherever she goes. His “wonky” walk does not slow him down, as he is fast to move to get into unsuspecting paper products and treats. Obie provides constant entertainment with his snorts, sneezes, and facial expressions. Everywhere he goes, this scamp is a crowd favorite. You can typically find him out and about at local pug meets ups, holding court.

Obie requires special food for his kidney condition, as well as daily eye drops and pain medication for his back. Thanks to CPR taking him in and providing his medical treatment and his loving foster parents! Obie has gone from a senior dog being left outside to a spoiled little man sleeping in bed with family that loves him very much.

Lola the Puggle

Sadly, we had to help Lola go to the Rainbow Bridge in October 2020. We look forward to the day when we can all meet again… Until that day, rest in peace beautiful Lola. You will be greatly missed.

Lola is a sweet senior Puggle who was surrendered at the age of 13. Soon
after she was diagnosed with diabetes, followed by cataracts in both eyes.
It took her a bit to get used to the injections but now she takes them with
ease as well as her special eye medication from the ophthalmologist.

Although Lola is mostly blind she quickly learned the lay of the land. She
is a good girl and lets you know when it’s time for her to go out. She knows
where everything is and will wait in-front of the door to go out.

She loves her giant fluffy bed and often spends the day dreaming in it.

She loves going on short walks around the neighborhood. Even though she’s
arthritic she is surprisingly agile and has a lot of energy for a senior

Breakfast and Dinner are her favorite times of the day. She will let you
know when it’s time to eat by staring with her adorable saucer eyes and lets
out a sweet Puggle  bark. She wags her tail and dances in a circle when she
knows she is about to fed.”

Compassionate Pug Rescue is grateful for foster parents like Lola’s who open
their homes and hearts to all of our special pugs and puggles!
We couldn’t save them without you!

Itty Bitty and Baxter Boy

We are Itty Bitty and Baxter Boy, the most loving pug couple you will ever meet! We like to do EVERYTHING together. As senior citizens (Baxter is 14, Itty Bitty is 12), we are not particularly active but do play with each other! We like to be on a schedule which includes morning meal, short walks (or a romp around the fenced yard), and lots of snoozing.
We get medicated eye drops prescribed by our ophthalmologist for tear production twice a day which adds a little extra expense to our monthly care. What we like the most is being with our people! We follow our foster mom’s every step and are such sweet company.
