This blog will chronicle my adventures as a Foster Mom for the Central Florida Pug Rescue. As a pug foster parent, my job involves caring for surrendered pugs until they are adopted by their forever family.

Pia Peanut at Petco!

Saturday was our September Adoption Event at Petco in Altamonte Springs, and Pia had such fun hanging out with the other puglets. She danced around in her bright red scrunchie, which all adoptees wear, and she wasn't the least bit anxious. Her medicine has worked so well for her and it showed during this event which was, at times, pretty noisy and filled with lots of activity. Pia settled in quite well and gave lots of pug kisses to anyone who came near her. Nora accompanied Pia and kept an eye on her, which was so adorable. Whenever Pia got out of her sight, Nora would bark as if to say "Hey! Where you at?" Too, too cute!
I was able to gets lots of pictures of some of our newer rescue pugs. Gosh, these pugs are so incredibly sweet, and I'm convinced that it won't be long before they all have forever families.

Isis, our newest "winker," was on hand and sat quite sweetly for her photographs, which will be used to update her bio on the rescue site (http://www.centralfloridapugrescue.org/).
Willy, a former puppy mill breeder, enjoyed his first Petco event. Although Willy has spent his whole life in a cage in the backyard, he really adjusted well to being surrounded by so many dogs. We all agreed that he can't get neutered soon enough since he was "quite the lothario," to put it mildly. He's a bit underweight but, otherwise, he's a handsome boy. Nora tried on a "fabulous dress" made by Michelle, an amazing seamstress, who sews for the Rescue's clothing line. We are always so happy to have visits from former rescues, who sometimes come to hang out with us. Say hello to Bonnie, Julia and Patty!We had a great day at Petco and are all looking forward to this Saturday's Sock Hop, our annual fundraiser. More on that tomorrow!

Pug hugs,
Leslie and Pia Peanut
