    Talking Hi Guys, Im adopting a pug! Yay!

    Hi everyone

    We have been on a waiting list to adopt a pug for around 5-6 months now I think, and recently we had our final stage completed which was the home visit, which was successful.. YAY. So far the experience weve had with the people involved in the process has been amazing, we were so nervous and anxious but this has all disappeared. We still may have some more waiting to do until the right pug is matched to our home, could be anything up to a few days, few weeks, few months...Regardless of the potential wait, we are so excited.

    I thought it would be great to actually sign up and say hello as oppose to browsing the forum without joining :D And hopefully get to know some of you..

    Would love to hear/ be directed to any adoption stories.

    We already have a docile persian cat, Ive done quite alot of reading online about the importance of a slow steady introduction and would love to hear your experiences if any about the integration and introduction of your furrbabies.

    Thank you, look forward to being part of the community.

    Hello and welcome to PV. I don't have personal experience of any rescues other than PDWRA but if you are adopting through them then you will have plenty of ongoing support should you need it. Now that you've been approved you may need to get the house ready to accept a pug at very short notice. Pugs with special needs or bad backgrounds would typically be fostered first, to assess their temperaments and ongoing requirements but if you have a situation where, say, a much loved pug needs a home because the owner dies then I think they'd typically try to place that pug straight in its forever home.

    Do keep us posted.

    Hello and thank you :)

    Im also adopting through PDWRA, My whole experience so far has been incredibly positive. The lady who came to do our home check was lovely she took out alot of time to spend with us and informative; she is a breeder herself too, so she was great at telling us stories and tips like best places to go for pug specific vets in our area and slightly out etc, she was the one who suggested I join some groups etc :) Plus the lady whos confirmed our application also comes across really nice. We were in the middle of changing some furniture at home when we had our check so hopefully within this week it will be all sorted, weve already started ''baby proofing'' every evening getting a little done.

    I think one the things me and my partner are unsure of is when do we start buy things the pug will need, as right now we dont know who our pug baby will be and what his/her individual requirements. Weve already added a few things on amazon prime like crate, and play pen... but apart from that me and my partner have been umming over whats the right thing to do at this point. As youve mentioned with PDWRA it can be short notice, this the only bit I have a little anxiety about.

    Thank you again

    I would just have the basics to hand - crate, bed, food and water bowls, a couple of toys and poo bags. And a lead. I wouldn't worry about a harness - the pug will probably have something suitable that will be OK even if just temporarily until you get something you like. There's no point in having food in stock, I don't think, until you can liaise with PDWRA and see if they know what the pug is used to eating. Also get some cleaning stuff for accidents - I use Simple Solution. It is often the case that a new pug will have the odd accident due to the upheaval of moving, even if it is house-trained.

    Make sure the cat has somewhere it can go to escape the dog just in case you end up with a younger dog that pesters the cat. That may mean having a way of confining the dog, such as a babygate.

    Thank you for signing up to rescue and I hope a new puggy will be finding his/her forever home with you soon.

    Yes youre right, Im not too worried about food as of yet as we would need to know what he/she is on first and if we want to change his/her food we'd have to introduce it slowly anyway so I guess that will be one the things that will be kind of last min information whenever we we get selected.

    I think we are going to try finalise some of the things soon, but first I think I'm going to have a browse and try doing abit of research, check out some reviews to make sure Im buying the right things... plus I want to know if theres any specific things pugs may prefer like specific toys... however it might be a preference thing, like regardless of how many toys our cat has, he always rather play with a hair tie :/ :D. Will look at the cleaning things for sure, we expect accidents, our cat was also adopted and he had several accidents during the first week, so we have learnt the hard way to make sure we have enough things to clean up :).

    Thank you for replying much appreciate it, feel free to let me know anything you might think is beneficial.
