Happy (belated) Gotcha Day!

To our friend Lilo!

Lilo chilling at our birthday party

Three years ago in late August, our mom went to the SPCA to check on some pugs that were rescued from a puppy mill. She saw this one little girl pug who was really anxious to get out of her cage. She knew her friends were thinking about a sister for their pug Stitch. So she took a picture, sent a text to her friends. 

And the rest is history!

Lilo had some medical and behavioral issues after being trapped in a cage and bred for a few years. But she's made some wonderful progress. She plays with toys, chews on bones and bullies, even snuggles with other pugs.

We are so glad you were rescued and found the most perfect family for you!
