Permanent Foster and Hospice

Bam Bam

Hello there, my name is Bam Bam, and I am about 11 years old. I am super sweet and easy going. I have a very expressive face, including my smiley, puzzled and sad puppy looks. My appetite is excellent. At meal times, you will find me waiting in the kitchen. I also have an adorable, unique bark (I sound like a seal barking).

Unfortunately, I have some degenerative nerve damage in my back and cannot walk on my hind legs for more than a step or two, but I can still get around by scooting using my front legs. My foster parents got me a terrific dog wheelchair from Walkin’ Wheels ( – you should see me run around the dog park with it!

I also love to swim in the pool. Due to my medical condition and senior status, I’m in permanent foster care. If you would like to be my Pug Angel Sponsor and help CPR, please send an email to for information on how to help!


Tootsie came To CPR after her family lost their home to foreclosure.  Tootsie was born in about 2007 so she is a senior, but she still has a lot of spunk!

Unfortunately, Tootsie’s back legs don’t work for her anymore and her eyesight has gone.  She needs help with all of her bathroom duties as she can no longer do it all herself.

Compassionate Pug Rescue is committed to making sure that Tootsie is well cared for and has everything she needs for a comfortable life in a loving CPR foster home for the rest of her days.

Tootsie currently does not have a sponsor or “Pug Angel” as we like to call them.  If you’d like to be a Pug Angel for one of CPR’s Permanent Foster/Hospice pugs, please click our “Donation” Button on any of our CPR website pages and sign up for a Paypal Subscription for $25 per month or more and let us know which pug you’d like to be a Pug Angel for!

Thank you for supporting Pug Rescue! xoxo




Stubby came to CPR ion March 2012.  He was owner surrendered when his family’s home was being foreclosed on.

Stubby made his personality known immediately at the Vet’s office by biting a vet tech!  Afterward, there was a hands-off policy initiated by the Vet’s office and a call went out to a CPR volunteer that had some experience working with dog training and behavior issues.  She was shocked by this handsome little pug’s behavior and said it was the worst that she had seen – especially in a pug! But, she said she’d take him on for an evaluation and some behavior training.

After a short time, the volunteer knew that Stubby would not be a candidate for adoption through the rescue.  His behavior was so extreme and unpredictable that they thought the only choice might’ve been to let him go. The CPR group was heartbroken at the idea of having to put to sleep a 7 year old – otherwise healthy – pug.  CPR and the Volunteer agreed that it could be possible for Stubby to live a happy life with people that understood his personality, could live with it and loved him for it anyway! Stubby was neutered, brought up to date on vaccination, had a dental done, had a cyst removed from his side and was put on heartworm and flea/tick preventatives.  Today, Stubby continues to live in permanent foster care with that volunteer and is thriving!

Recently, Stubby (now over 13 years old!), had an abscessed tooth and was rushed in for an emergency dental/extraction.  He recovered nicely and is back to his old self!

Thanks to the generosity of CPR’s supporters, Stubby has gotten to live out the rest of his natural life to the fullest possible!  Stubby sends a huge Thank You to you all for your support over the years!
