The Kentuckiana Pug Rescue site has been on my web "favorites" for the last 5 years (at least).  I frequented the website several times a week, looking at the available pugs and my heart went out to every pair of sweet brown puggie eyes that looked back at me from the computer screen.  Since my mother became a "pug-mom" in 1997, I've fallen in love with those sweet dogs and wanted one of my own.  I knew I wasn't ready for the responsibility then, but two months ago, I realized that I was ready to be a "pug-mom"!  February 2005 is when cuddly, sweet, silly Maggie (formerly Prissy and then Lucy) trotted into our lives.  My husband, Jeff, and I brought her home on February 9th.  Our 3 year-old hound mix, Nelson, wasn't sure of her.  Normally he LOVES other dogs and having his "friends" over, but with Maggie, he knew she was different - she wasn't just coming over to visit, she was moving in!  He was unsure of her and seemed mad at us, but he's gradually gotten over that and Maggie is his little buddy.  She's become the perfect completion to our family.   

I cannot thank you enough for my sweet girl.  She brings us such joy!  Her antics never cease to tickle me, and she's quick to jump on our laps whenever we sit down and always has kisses to give to everyone!

The adoption process was so smooth, yet thorough.  Special thanks to Amy Carpenter, who was our adoption coordinator.  After coming to our house and meeting Nelson, Amy knew that Maggie would be a good fit and she was so right!  I can't say enough good things about Kentuckiana Pug Rescue and recommend it every chance I get!  Thank you SO MUCH - I can't imagine our lives without Maggie!
