LEWIS

Age: DOB May 29, 2022
Adoption Fees: $750
Adoption Status:

December 3, 2022 – Lewis is recovering very well from his neutering surgery.  He is going to his forever home on December 10.

November 28, 2022 – Lewis was neutered on Friday.  The surgery went very well.  He is now available for adoption.  We are looking for a home with another playful dog so they both can entertain each other and have a nice active life.

November 21, 2022 – Lewis has made great strides in his walking abilities and completed his first 3 km walk! Lewis is also improving with interacting with other dogs; previously, he would cry and stop walking when he met another dog on a walk and the dog left. However, now he can, at most times, keep walking. Lewis experienced his first snow and loved it. Lewis is now sleeping through the night. His foster parents are trying to prevent him from chewing on socks and furniture.

November 15, 2022 – Lewis is continuing to make progress on his walking abilities. He’s also starting to improve his listening skills, and is working towards consistent response to commands. He is extremely social on his many trips around the neighborhood each day, and will stop and play with other dogs that we come across for as long as they and their owners are willing to. He is, however, still having a little trouble moving on from interactions such as playing with another dog, getting spooked on nighttime walks, and even saying hi to random people passing by. Though we suspect that he is still adjusting to the new neighbourhood and busy city life and will become more comfortable outside over time.

November 7, 2022 – Lewis is still on the journey of becoming fully potty trained. He is getting better at letting his foster family know when he must go and has had significantly fewer accidents. He is still getting used to walks, understanding how to best interact with other dogs, and learning how to pee with his leg up. Lewis is getting better at sleeping through the night, and this week sleep ranged from getting up at 3 am to sleeping till 9 am.

Lewis is a very kind-hearted pup who loves exploring and seeing new things/people/dogs. When he sees something/someone new, he initially gets spooked/overexcited and needs to be cuddled but after a few minutes, he will settle.  Overall, Lewis has shown significant growth in his potty training and walking endeavours.

October 31, 2022 – Lewis came to us on October 23. He is a sweet boy and is born on May 29, 2022.  Lewis is a big boy at already 15lbs.  He seems to be 80% pug at least and the rest is a mystery.  Lewis enjoys many walks a day and is a very friendly pug.  He has been brought up to date in his vaccination and will be neutered in the coming month.  Stay tuned for more on this sweet boy in the coming weeks.

FRANKLIN AKA FRANK

Age: DOB April 19, 2022
Adoption Fees: $750
Adoption Status:

October 31, 2022 – Franklin has been adopted by his foster dad who has been fostering for us for over 10 years.

September 26, 2022 – Franklin has settled in nicely to our routine over the last week.  The little guy is very easy going and LOVES to meet new people and all dogs while we are out and about on our walks.  His leash manners are almost perfect, we are working on discouraging him from trying to chase vehicles while walking. There have been two pee accidents in the house, but I will take blame for those as I am still getting used to having a puppy in the house! Franklin loves to spend time on the big bed but has zero issue sleeping in his crate the whole night without a peep.  He had the opportunity to attend a family gathering on the weekend and did extremely well with a house full of people but was a little unsure of a crawling one year old dog savvy toddler.  It didn’t take him long to warm up and offer some friendship kisses.  Franklin is a very social, smart and well adjusted pug puppy.

September 20, 2022 – Frank aka Franklin is settling in nicely in his foster home. He enjoys the company of the three resident
pugs very much, maybe a little too much! He is full of puppy energy and very well behaved for a 5-
month-old puppy. It is obvious that he has had some prior training before being surrendered and
understands most basic commands.
Franklin was in the company of a younger dogs on Sunday, and they had so much fun together. Nonstop
zoomies and chasing after each other with the ball in their mouths. Frank like to chase squirrels in the
backyards a tell off the birds that fly overhead.
There have been no accidents in the house, and he is sleeping in his xpen in a separate room at night
and settles quickly. Franklin enjoys his multiple walks per day and has excellent leash manners. He is
very excitable when cars pass by so that is a little something we will need to work on.
Franklin is on two different eye drops. One he gets three times per day and the other is twice per day.
This will likely be the routine for the remainder of his life due to ulcer scaring and pigmentary keratitis.
This is a serious commitment for his adoptive family to keep in mind.
Stay tuned for the next weekly update as we get to know Franklin better. So far, I can describe him as
an adorable, loveable little man with lots of charm and a big personality.

September 19, 2022 – Frank came in yesterday.  He is born on April 19, 2022 and he is Bob & Bee’s littermate.  Frank is going to the vet this Thursday for a complete check up.  Like Bob & Bee, Frank is born with eye problems, his don’t seem to be as severe though.  He requires Tacrolimus & tear gel in his eyes every day.  More on Frank as we get to know him more.

MYLA

Age: 2
Adoption Fees: $750
Adoption Status:

November 28, 2022 – Myla was spayed on Friday.  The surgery went very well.  Myla is getting adopted by her foster mom.

October 31, 2022 – Myla is doing very well, she will get spayed in the coming week.  Myla will be adopted by the Emergency Hospital RVT who fostered her since she came to us to have a second surgery to her right eye.

September 12, 2022 – Myla’s stitches from her enucleation surgery gave up and she had to go to the Emergency Clinic this past Friday.  She is now on 2 different antibiotics and the surgery site has to be cleaned regularly.  Myla is going back to the vet today for a check up.

September 7, 2022 – Myla came in last night.  She is born May 1, 2020.  She was surrendered by her owner who was unable to keep her.  Myla has had an eye injured by a big dog and it couldn’t be saved.  She had her right eye removed yesterday at the emergency clinic in Niagara.  More on Myla as we get to know her.

GRIMM

Age: 1
Adoption Fees: $750
Adoption Status:

October 31, 2022 – Grimm’s foster family fell in love with him and decided to adopt him.
October 3, 2022 – Grimm continues to be a very happy little guy. He enjoys his daily walks and play dates, outings in the car, and spending time with all of the humans in his foster family, and our large extended family. He follows like a little shadow and snuggles day and night.  He enjoys his raw diet, and has started showing interest in liver treats! He also started showing interest in chasing toys, but is still a bit lost on what to do with them once they are caught! We thought that he might figure it out while playing with Charlie, but when Charlie pursues a toy, Grimm just uses the distraction to jump on his head. Grimm has definitely found his voice and will react to knocking and doorbells, and noises he hears in the house like doors closing, or the kids playing. I moved the guinea pig enclosure closer to the ground, and now that Grimm understands what is happening, he barks less at the sound of their scampering. We are working on rewarding him when he stops barking, but his adoptive family would definitely have to be okay with a chatty guy.  This week Grimm has been doing all of his business outside with no problems.
Grimm appears very healthy. He is energetic, curious and bright. He has lost the little bit of extra padding he was carrying and is looking very fit!

September 26, 2022 – Grimm continues to be an adored addition to our family, and for very good reasons. He is devoted, friendly, curious and intelligent and thus a joy to welcome into anyone’s life.  He continues to have beautiful interactions with adults and children.  We did not interact with other dogs this week due to the rescue’s concerns about kennel cough.

If Grimm’s adoptive family has other dogs, they should be prepared to introduce them to Grimm gradually in deference to Grimm’s gentle nature.

Grimm is happiest when he alongside his people. We are only parted for a few hours here and there during the week, so we do not know how he would adjust to a household where he was more frequently alone. The rare time he is home alone, he stays in the kitchen, which has a baby gate. He has never caused any destruction.

Because Grimm is so well behaved, we are able to take him when we are visiting family, running errands, going for walks, or going to and from school. His favourite thing is when the whole family goes for a walk.  He will trot proudly in the middle. He will also stop and wait when our 7-year-old lags behind and wait for her to catch up before continuing on.

Grimm has started to bark in a few situations. He discovered the guinea pigs this week. We thought he was just indifferent to them before, but it turns out he just didn’t realize they were there!  He barks when he hears them moving around. He also barks when he hears a noise in another part of the house, and when someone passes or approaches the door. I believe he could be trained out of this, but need to do a little research about training that doesn’t include treats or toys.  Grimm loves his new raw food diet.  He continues to refused the treats and chews.

He continues to need his ears cleaned daily. As we have written before, Grimm has an inner-ear deformity and will require daily ear cleanings for life. He also needs his face washed daily because he has particularly wet eyes.  While Grimm loves attention, he continues to be baffled by toys. We are working on this, trying different toys in different environments.  Grimm’s adoptive family will have to be committed to taking him on their outings to ensure that he gets enough stimulation. He loves rides in the car and seeing new environments.

We are still in the process of figuring out Grimm’s bathroom habits, and he is trying to figure out his new routine. He spends lots of time outside with us on his leash, and he has unfettered access to the backyard, but we think this arrangement is different to him somehow and has required him to adjust.  During this phase, has had accidents in the house a few times, but we are confident that this behaviour will cease. Whatever his routine will be, he demands an audience and will not go without company 🙂  Grimm has received his Bordetella vaccine last week and will get his booster DHPP vaccine mid October.

September 19, 2022 – Grimm is an affectionate and energetic little man with a calm and happy disposition. Here are some details about he and his care. Grimm is completely housetrained.  He appears to be trained to do his business before he goes for a walk. He likes to have a bathroom buddy when he goes, so joining him in the yard is a must.  He has clear body language when he needs to go out. Sometimes he will go to the door, but other times, like if he is cuddled up with us, he will simply jump off the couch and look at us. It’s very clear if you are attuned to it. Grimm walks well on a leash. He is very interested in people and dogs that he meets on his walk. Grimm is walked twice a day for around 30 minutes. He also joins us on our outings during the day, and plays throughout the day. Grimm has excellent recall. For safety, we wouldn’t take him anywhere off leash, but he promptly responds to his name and requests to return to his handler. We get the impression that he was taught basic commands but that they were not reinforced. With a little work I believe that he would master sit, down, stay etc.

Grimm is calm and affectionate with adults and children.  He loves humans and other dogs. When out on a walk, he wants to stop to meet everyone. We have been cautious around other dogs because, while he is always eager to meet them, he often seems overwhelmed by excited, energetic dogs.  He may react differently with different dogs and with a longer timeframe of being relocated from his home. Grimm is used to cats as he had lived with a cat in a former life.

Grimm would do fine in a home with another dog, but he might be happier in a home with a slightly older pug (like maybe 3-6 years) than a younger puppy.

Grimm likes his snuggles, but he also likes his walks and to play! He communicates very effectively when he is done chilling and wants outside time, whether that is a walk, exploring the back yard, chasing a ball (but never bringing it back, lol), or a car ride. He will dance and twirl! And use his very expressive eyes and facial expressions to tell you what he wants.

At this point, Grimm doesn’t seem to know what to do with toys or chews. He shows interest in the squeaks, but loses interest after that initial response. We are working on teaching him how to play with toys! Grimm becomes winded quickly and does poorly in any heat, whether this is playing or walking or even in a warm room, this is likely due be because he is totally out of shape due to sedentary life prior to coming to us.  Grimm is crate trained, but we do not use one. He is a typical pug and wants to be near his people always.  Since his arrival, Grimm will get up at 7am, and goes to the backyard to do his business. He has very wet eyes and an ear deformity that makes it necessary to do this daily.

We will bring Grimm when it’s time to pick up the kids from school. Grimm is very calm near the school yard, and wags his tail vigorously when kids want to give him pats.  Grimm is used to stay in the kitchen, which is gated, with his bed, food and toys.
Grim had a surgery on hos left hind leg to correct Legg-Calve-Perthes. His right leg did not require any treatment at that time. His adoptive family might want to have an x-ray done on his right leg to monitor this condition.

Grimm has a structural malformation of his right ear and needs DAILY ear cleaning. Even with this, his ear will always have an excess of oil and grime and be prone to infections, owing to the ear’s inability to drain and loss of air circulation.  Grimm is lovable dog with an excellent disposition. He is responsive to instruction and we believe he will be receptive to training if his adoptive parents make it a priority.  We think that he would do well in a home with or without children. He may appreciate a companion with a similarly-mild disposition, which might be more likely in a slightly older dog. He is happy and playful! For example, yesterday he discovered that he could jump from our bed into a pile of blankets and pillows and bounce back out again, and he proceeded to do that a number of times with a giant doggy grin on his face! And if you put on music he is happy to be your dance partner.

September 12, 2022 – Grimm is doing well.  He is a very fussy eater but such a lovely boy.  He seems to love children.  Grimm is going to the vet today for a complete check up and to be brought up to date in his vaccination.

September 7, 2022 – Grimm is a black pug, he is born on January 25, 2021.  He is neutered and has had hip dysplasia surgery on his left hip.  Grimm is a good boy and we will get to discover him in the next weeks.

ROCKY

Age: 11 years old
Adoption Fees: $300
Adoption Status:

December 3, 2022 – Rocky & Paisley are gone to their forever home…(:

November 15, 2022 – Rocky and Paisley are doing very well.  Another weekend spent at the cottage enjoying the great outdoors and snooze in front of the woodstove when we come inside. Rocky is now coming into my office with his toy in his mouth when he wants a little playtime during the day.  Paisley is content to just watch him chase the toys.  Rocky loves the cooler weather and really enjoyed the snow this morning but Paisley is not a fan! She finds it a bit cold so we dress her up in a little coat so she is warm and comfy on the walks.  Both are getting microchipped this week.

November 2, 2022 – Both Rocky and Paisley are really enjoying the fall season. They are so energetic on their walks and really love running through the leaves and sniffing every pile of leaves they walk by.  Paisley has recovered very well from her spay surgery and is back to her energetic self. Incision is totally healed.  Rocky is down to 29 lbs now.  He came down with a little gastro bug but the antibiotics have kicked in and his bowel movements have returned to normal.  Those cuties are ready to be adopted.

September 26, 2022 – Rocky had 15 teeth removed and also pleased to report his weight has dropped to just under 30lbs. To celebrate Foster Mom bought him a new harness today.. stylin dude!   Still working on their manners during  city walks but we are definitely seeing signs of improvement.  All in all happy puppers!

September 8, 2022 – Rocky didn’t seem to mind that his sister was gone for the day for her dental procedure. His elephant toy keeps him very amused  and he enjoyed having foster mom to himself all day!

August 22, 2022
– Back at the cottage for another week of vacation.
Foster Mom decided it might be best for her to keep them company in the back seat for the long drive to the cottage and they were super travellers! Even napped for a while.
Although they have adapted well to condo life it’s obvious Rocky and Paisley prefer the quiet lifestyle at the cottage.
Fresh air, naps outside, and plenty of exercise chasing the resident chipmunk around the deck
Rocky’s mobility continues to improve…he can now go up a short flight of stairs and will break out in the occasional run if he spots the chipmunk at the bird feeder. Walking distance improving.
Paisley is quite energetic and always excited when it’s time for a walk. Foster mom has taken her out a couple of times by herself and she can easily walk for 2 kilometres.
Seeing more of their personalities now and they have started playing with toys . They need supervision at meal time as Rocky will try to nudge his way into Paisleys bowl if she hasn’t finished. Now know why he’s a little chunky!
Both continue to sleep well through the night and enjoy snuggling up on the sofa with foster mom &dad to watch a movie.
Dental surgeries are booked for September.
All in all they are settling in really well and we are enjoying their company!

July 30 – Rocky and Paisley truly enjoyed their week at the cottage. Highlights included lounging on the deck, nature walks, and the endless entertainment provided by the local chipmunks raiding the bird feeder.  They met some new friends including a furry one…a few barks to introduce themselves but quickly settled down and all enjoyed each others company.

Rocky and Paisley are very social and love a good snuggle. Paisley will jump up on the sofa if invited. Rocky will ask for a lift up as he can’t jump but manages quite well to get down on his own. He needs a lift going up a flight of stairs which should change with weight reduction.  We are starting to see some personality from both. Paisley in true pug fashion likes to follow around her humans while Rocky is a little more autonomous and will nap on his own in a different room.  Paisley likes to mother Rocky. She will lick his ears and on the rare occasion will hump him to show him she’s the boss. Rocky has no problem with it and will muscle her out of the way to be first out the door for a walk.  Both are settling in to a feeding schedule of twice a day. Rocky has already dropped a couple of pounds and has more energy to keep up with Paisley on our walks. We continue to work on social skills during the walks. Both are sleeping well through the night and no accidents.

July 18, 2022 – Rocky came into rescue on July 16. He has been together with her sister Paisley all of his life and is 10.5 years old. Rocky needs to lose about 10lbs……We will get them both vetted the first week of August. They will have blood work and vaccines.  More to come as we get to know this sweet boy.

June 18, 2022 – Rocky and Paisley are settling in very well to condo life.  Both enjoy their rides on the elevator to go outside for a walk. Paisley has great energy for walking and even though Rocky is carrying quite a bit of extra weight he is surprisingly light on his feet and even ran a bit to catch up to his sister. Both had no issues doing their business on the walks and we also noticed each one asking for the door to go out.

These two sweetie pies are very affectionate and really enjoy spending time with foster mom and foster dad getting belly rubs. Paisley in particular has attached herself to foster mom and follows her everywhere.

They respond to the sit command, respond when called by their names, and perk up their ears when you talk to them.  Both enjoyed a good bath and brushing and ate their dinner.

Paisley slept through the night on the dog bed without issue. Rocky also had a good night for the most part except a one time wander where he had a little pee in the kitchen.  Rocky and Paisley would like to give special thanks to Ellen from www.uptownpetgrooming.com who opened her shop during her vacation for a much needed emergency nail trim today at no charge! Walks will be way more fun now

July 16, 2022 – Paisley came into rescue on July 16. She has been together with her brother Rocky all of her life and is 10.5 years old. We will get them both vetted the first week of August.

BEE

Age: DOB April 22, 2022
Adoption Status:

November 7, 2022 – Bob & Bee have been adopted by their foster mom.

October 31, 2022 – Bee and Bob are getting sterilized this week.  They are getting adopted by their long term foster mum.

October 3, 2022 – Puppies had a great week. Bee had a visit to the Cedarview outdoor farmers market. She loves to jump on anything and everything possible.  Bob played hide and seek and was found in the kitchen pantry! Bob is learning how to go down two steps and go up and down the outdoor ramp before winter. They are working on sitting for 10 seconds and coming when prompted. They really enjoyed their playdate with brother Frankie.

September 7, 2022 – Ms. Bee is busy as ever and sometimes prefers to be the boss Bee! She rarely stops moving and is super inquisitive, and often instigates to play or chase. Bee is now 9lbs.

August 22, 2022 – Bee was happy to welcome her brother Bob back from his bilateral enucleation.  She was jumping and dancing when she saw him.

August 5, 2022
– Bee’s right eye was removed as it ruptured and was past the point of saving.  Luckily, the ulcer in her left eye healed and she has some vision in that eye.
Bob’s surgery consisted of a corneal graft on each eye.  After a very intense schedule of eye drops and care by two very special and caring vet technicians, Bob’s left eye is healed.  Bob is still receiving eye care on his right eye as it is healing slower.  Bob has some peripheral vision with hopes that additional healing will improve his vision overall. Bob has another recheck in a couple of weeks.
Bob and Bee have recently had their second set of vaccinations.  Both are progressing well and are an appropriate weight for their age.  Bob and Bee were given a dewormer the day after their vaccines.  Bob and Bee are smart and sassy at the same time.  They both know the sit and stay command.  Bee has perfected going up a small fight of stairs but is hesitant to come down them on her own.  Bob on the other hand hasn’t braved the stairs yet.
The puppies are full of energy and require lots of play time to develop their muscles and skills.  Bob has mastered finding the waterfall dish to drink out of.  He relies on his hearing to find his sister Bee as well.  He does run into stuff but under a watchful eye we help him avoid causing any further damage to his eyes.
When they have exhausted themselves from playing with toys, chewing on bully sticks or playing with each other they do enjoy a nice long nap.  They are currently sleeping in separate crates during the day and overnight to protect their eyes.  They sleep through the night and are not messing in their crates. There is still the odd accident in the house but when outside they understand “do your business”, of course followed by lots and lots of praise.  Bob and Bee are bonded and will be adopted together.  We will be very selective in choosing the home that Bob and Bee spend the rest of their lives in. Their home will need to be pug proofed.  Stairs will need to be blocked to prevent these puppies from falling down stairs with their poor eyesight.  Extra care will need to be taken inside and outside of the home to ensure the risk to their eyes is minimized.

July 12, 2022 – Bob & Bee are doing extremelly well, they eat and play like all normal puppies should.  They will soon be able to get their cone collar off.

July 1, 2022 – Bob and Bee had a following up appointment with their eye specialist yesterday morning and she was very pleased with what she seen during the exam. Bee will recovery quicker that Bob, but Bob is a being a little trooper and is handling his recovery very well at this point. They are both on some relaxants to “try” and keep them calm along with some pain management meds and eye drops, lots of eye drops! This sweet pair will require eye drops for the remainder of their lives. Their eyes will be reexamined this coming Monday to ensure that the healing process in coming along as it should. Bob and Bee are NOT AVAILABLE for adoption anytime soon. They will not leave the rescue until Bob has been neutered and Bee has been spayed.  Thank you so much to those that have donated to their medical fund. If you are interested in donating you can send an etransfer to undermywingpugrescue@gmail.com ($25 gets you a tax receipt, please include your address in the notes section) or via CanadaHelps, who will issue you a tax receipt on our behalf.

June 30, 2022 *****************UPDATE: Bob and Bee had their surgery today. They are awake and recovering well. Bob had a graft in each eye and wee Bee unfortunately had to have her right eye removed. Good news for Bee is she didn’t require surgery on her left eye as the ulcer has healed. Tomorrow we will provide a more detailed update after their follow up exam in the morning! Thank you all for keeping this sweet pair in your thoughts and prayers!

June 28, 2022 – Bob & Bee arrived yesterday.  They both are born with eye problems, corneal ulcers.  They have seen an ophtalmologist this afternoon and both have surgery schedule for tomorrow.  More to come after the surgeries.  Bob & Bee are sibblings and they are born on April 22, 2022.

 

BOB

Age: DOB April 22, 2022
Adoption Status:

November 7, 2022 – Bob & Bee have been adopted by their foster mom.
October 31, 2022 – Bob is getting neutered this week.  He and his sister Bee are getting adopted by their long term foster mum.  Both are thriving and are still very bonded.
October 3, 2022 – Puppies had a great week. Bee had a visit to the Cedarview outdoor farmers market. She loves to jump on anything and everything possible.  Bob played hide and seek and was found in the kitchen pantry! Bob is learning how to go down two steps and go up and down the outdoor ramp before winter. They are working on sitting for 10 seconds and coming when prompted. They really enjoyed their playdate with brother Frankie.
August 22, 2022 – Bob and Bee are a one of kind duo who just so happen to share one eye between the two of them now. Bob is 4 days post op bilateral enucleation and is recovering very well. These two puppies are the bravest, easily adaptable and opposite personality puppies. The only thing Bee seems to fear so far is not knowing what’s going on 24/7. Despite only have 1 eye, she is very observative and watches everyone and everything (including TV). Bob, in general, is more relaxed and loves to snuggle. He is already comfortable doing 2 steps of stairs on his own (with some guidance) and knows where his water dish is from memory. Bob seems to really enjoy sleeping on his back and loves having his tummy rubbed. They entertain each other all day and will snuggle next to or on top of each other when it comes to nap time. From the second they wake up, Bee is looking for something to do for the entire day but recently it never seems to fail that once it is around 8:30pm, she is maxed out of energy and could sleep through anything. They both love everyone and do the cutest “zoomies” when outside and playing with their current big stepbrother Zeus (yellow lab). They are perfect angels overnight and will sleep through the night in their own crates at this time. Both have made many trips to the ophthalmologist so far and have adjusted very well to car rides and busier environments. Currently, they both know how to sit, and we are working on how to sit and stay. Once outside, they both go to the washroom right away, although sometimes Bee must run around for a bit from pure excitement before going.  They are still currently being house trained with the occasional accident in the house but overall are doing a great job. Bee is more advanced when it comes to walks. They both are accustomed to harnesses and are learning how to go on a walk. It is a bit more of a challenge for Bob at the moment but given how fast he has adjusted to everything so far, we are hopeful he will grasp the concept soon enough. These two cuties rely on each other for entertainment, support and comfort.

– Bob’s surgery at the end of June consisted of a corneal graft on each eye.  After a very intense schedule of eye drops and care by two very special and caring vet technicians, Bob’s left eye is healed.  Bob is still receiving eye care on his right eye as it is healing slower.  Bob has some peripheral vision with hopes that additional healing will improve his vision overall. Bob has another recheck in a couple of weeks.
Bob and Bee have recently had their second set of vaccinations.  Both are progressing well and are an appropriate weight for their age.  Bob and Bee were given a dewormer the day after their vaccines.  Bob and Bee are smart and sassy at the same time.  They both know the sit and stay command.  Bee has perfected going up a small fight of stairs but is hesitant to come down them on her own.  Bob on the other hand hasn’t braved the stairs yet.
The puppies are full of energy and require lots of play time to develop their muscles and skills.  Bob has mastered finding the waterfall dish to drink out of.  He relies on his hearing to find his sister Bee as well.  He does run into stuff but under a watchful eye we help him avoid causing any further damage to his eyes.
When they have exhausted themselves from playing with toys, chewing on bully sticks or playing with each other they do enjoy a nice long nap.  They are currently sleeping in separate crates during the day and overnight to protect their eyes.  They sleep through the night and are not messing in their crates. There is still the odd accident in the house but when outside they understand “do your business”, of course followed by lots and lots of praise.
Bob and Bee are bonded and will be adopted together.  We will be very selective in choosing the home that Bob and Bee spend the rest of their lives in. Their home will need to be pug proofed.  Stairs will need to be blocked to prevent these puppies from falling down stairs with their poor eyesight.  Extra care will need to be taken inside and outside of the home to ensure the risk to their eyes is minimized.

July 12, 2022 – Bob & Bee are doing extremelly well, they eat and play like all normal puppies should.  They will soon be able to get their cone collar off.

July 1, 2022 – Bob and Bee had a following up appointment with their eye specialist yesterday morning and she was very pleased with what she seen during the exam. Bee will recovery quicker that Bob, but Bob is a being a little trooper and is handling his recovery very well at this point. They are both on some relaxants to “try” and keep them calm along with some pain management meds and eye drops, lots of eye drops! This sweet pair will require eye drops for the remainder of their lives. Their eyes will be reexamined this coming Monday to ensure that the healing process in coming along as it should. Bob and Bee are NOT AVAILABLE for adoption anytime soon. They will not leave the rescue until Bob has been neutered and Bee has been spayed.  Thank you so much to those that have donated to their medical fund. If you are interested in donating you can send an etransfer to undermywingpugrescue@gmail.com ($25 gets you a tax receipt, please include your address in the notes section) or via CanadaHelps, who will issue you a tax receipt on our behalf.

June 30, 2022 *****************UPDATE: Bob and Bee had their surgery today. They are awake and recovering well. Bob had a graft in each eye and wee Bee unfortunately had to have her right eye removed. Good news for Bee is she didn’t require surgery on her left eye as the ulcer has healed. Tomorrow we will provide a more detailed update after their follow up exam in the morning! Thank you all for keeping this sweet pair in your thoughts and prayers!

June 28, 2022 – Bob & Bee arrived yesterday.  They both are born with eye problems, corneal ulcers.  They have seen an ophtalmologist this afternoon and both have surgery schedule for tomorrow.  More to come after the surgeries.  Bob & Bee are sibblings and they are born on April 22, 2022.
