I have a 16 month old pug named Lucy. She loves other dogs and loves
to play. I knew it was time to find a playmate for Lucy. My vet told
me about the Kentuckiana Pug rescue and I immediately filled out an
application. We waited a few months when we finally got a call from
Marsha, a Kentuckiana Pug Rescue volunteer and a wonderful person.
She explained they had an eight year old pug whose owner had past
away 18 months ago. He had been locked up with another dog for
months, with relatives coming by to feed him every so often. I was
worried Lucy may be too much for him but I thought we would give it
try. It was so worth it!
I could not wait to meet Jody- the night finally came when we were
able to pick him up. He looked so pitiful that night- he had been
neutered and had 13 teeth pulled due to infection. Despite all he
had been through that day, Jody had a sparkle in his eyes that still
continues to shine today.
We have had Jody for almost 3 months now. His favorite time of the
day is meal time and often sneaks food out of Lucy's bowl when she
is not looking. He has discovered toys and loves to play with Lucy.
They race around the back yard, chasing each other until both
collapse in exhaustion. I often find Jody buried in a pile of
laundry, sleeping. When I first brought him home, he would do
nothing but go in circles, I believe out of nervousness. He rarely
does this now unless someone he does not know is in the house. He
loves to be up on the couch, snuggling beside me. He is so sweet and
affectionate, and rarely leaves my side.
Jody has brought so much joy to my life. After all he has been
through and still has the ability to love and trust someone again
still amazes me. Lucy and I promise to never disappoint the little
fellow and he will have enough love and affection for the rest of
