    DefaultLeonardo and Donatella

    Hi guys!

    Im new here. I am the proud mom of 2 pug puppies named Leonardo and Donatella (yes, after the ninja turtles).

    Leonardo is 10 months old. He is a fawn (super light) male. He's a super cute big boy! Weighing in at 20lbs! He's very long and thin. Sometimes I wonder if he's really a pug because he isn't shaped like a standard pug. But his puggy face and curly tail confirm, ha!

    Donatella is my new pup. She is 10 weeks old but I was told she was the runt of the litter. She is very cute but very tiny! She weighs about 3 pounds. 2 weeks ago she was diagnosed with Parvo, coccidia and giardia. I denied hospital care ($8k bill!) and chose to bring her home and nurse her back to health. The vets told me she has no chance of survival because she was so tiny and weak when I brought her in. I believed otherwise and today she is stronger than ever, feisty and a big ball of energy and SASS!

    my pups are great. Im happy to have found this community of pug owners because I have A LOT of questions that google just can't answer for me. Glad to be apart of Pug Village!

    Welcome to PugVillage!

    I look forward to getting to know Leonardo and Donatella and seeing some pictures if you're able to post some. I'm so glad you were able to help Donatella recover, those are some nasty diseases and puppies can go downhill so quickly.

    Wow yes puppies are very weak still at 8 weeks and for the runt and with those diseases I understand the vet saw little chance. You did and see that even a little chance is a chance. I got currently 3 boys . 7 years , 3 years and 15 weeks . My Puppy actually is on the small side and I was told he was the smallest in the litter. He is getting there he should weight just about 8 lbs now. He is growing fast ! I can not wait to see pictures !
