Thank you so much for giving us Raleigh [formerly Rollie].

I wanted to give you an update. He is doing wonderfully! We take many, many walks here in North Beach, and Raleigh loves the beach at Crissy Fields. We love his energy and cherish his great spirit!

He has been a wonderful addition to our family.

Thank you so much for saving these lovely dogs and supporting pug lovers!!!!

Christina, Mark, Elsa & Raleigh

PS - He fits in wonderfully with my daughter, he is at the perfect age for a 4 yr. old. She gets his attention and they both play with the same toys.

Rollie's story:


I am a 2 yr old neutered male fawn pug. I was abandoned and picked up by animal control where they took me to a shelter. I was surrendered to PROS, someone wanted me. I am a little bit insecure, but once I become comfortable in my surroundings and know that someone loves me I will be just fine. I am slightly under weight and when I was picked up I had demodetic mange. I am now finished being treated for the mange. I ride great in the car, and I am good with the other dogs in my foster home. I am learning that humans can be a wonderful source of fun and positive attention. I love playing with stuffed toys and my nylabone. I am very motivated by food rewards. I want to be part of the action in my foster home, and I am as sweet as they come. I am current on all of my vaccinations, I am micro-chipped, and my heart worm test was negative.

3 month update: Check out Rollie! Lookin' good and that fur is all grown back in!



Milton.jpgHi, I'm Milton. I am also called Uncle Milty. I am a 7 to 8 yr old neutered male fawn pug. I was found as a stray and taken to the Antioch shelter, where they took out a zillion fox tails from my fur. Hum, where had I been? Well no one came to claim me so I was surrendered to PROS, yes my saviors! I have limited eyesight and limited hearing but these small short comings do not detour me in any way, I get along just fine. I have no arthritis, hip or spine problems. Just due to my other problems with hearing and eyesight the vet determined that I was not well taken care of. I am a very happy boy, and I have a beautiful thick double coat of fur. I get along with all the other dogs in my foster home. My house training is being re-enforced and I'm glad to say I am doing better.

I am current on all of my vaccinations and I am micro-chipped. I am very excited to find my forever family who will pay attention to me, and give me mega bunches of love.

Milton has been a PROS retirement pug since June 2010. Thank you to Milton's sponsor Melanie Cary, for her support.

PROS wishes to thank each donation that was received for Milton's care. A long time PROS member and dear friend, Sharon Tracey passed away earlier this year. The family requested instead of flowers that donations be made to PROS in Sharon's name. Heartfelt thanks go to Ellen Byers, Carol Hartman, Helen Freeman, Jan and John Grover, Al and Carol Feuerstein, George and Mary Hartman, Don and Deborah Ciucci, James and Darcy Fields, Nancy Hussted, Denise and Michael Pagan, Linda Fossum, James & Susanne Reed, Victoraine Benedetti, Earl & Cynthia Asato, Shigeo, Sumiko and Earl Asato and Wellings & Co.

Sammie was adopted by Carolyn & Al Lacy

The first thing [our 4 grandchildren] say when they come to our house is "Where is Sammie?" Our lab, Leo, still misses his old chum, Megan, but is beginning to warm up to Sammie. They sleep together, eat together and lounge on the sofa together.

Sometimes I take Sammie with me to pick up Noelle from Kindergarden. She loves to ride in the car. Everybody in Kindergarden gravitates to her and she is so gentle with the little ones. We are so happy to have her in our lives. Turns out there is another pug, "Lois Lane", who lives in our neighborhood. Now that the weather is nice, I plan to take Sammie over and introduce ourselves.

And guess what? She likes all the same TV shows I like (Dancing with the Stars, Amazing Race, Survivor....). It is such fun to cuddle with her and consult with her about what is going on in the shows.

Thanks again for taking such good care of her for us. Can't imagine life without her now.

yours, Carolyn

Featured Pug

Hazel I'm Hazel, found wondering the streets. The vet discovered I have a mess of health issues that have been neglected, but PROS promised to fix me up and get me the life I deserve.
