Thanks for taking them in. No Pug deserves that kind of treatment. Their resilience is pretty amazing, I'm sure she'll come around. I strongly believe you should look into having them spayed and neutered.

Thanks for taking two guys, you're amazing. And I am amazed how that old fart hit lil girl, how can someone hit a pug :( .
Well I also have a girl and you don't have to do anything else to gain her trust except than just be with her. Sit on the ground and let her come to you automatically and one more thing you can do is to bump your nose with her, it sounds silly but it works. My baby girl love it, I do this in the morning when she is sleepy and she will just lick my nose 2-3 times and wiggle her tail with happiness.
She started playing with me a lil bit this morning and even came to me a few times, she finally raised her tail and was running around outside . I want to change her name but Idk if I should , she really don't answer to her name at all . I want her to have a new beginning. She's not hiding anymore either . I used to do the nose thing with my black pug ( he passed away June of last year he was my baby). The male is very friendly I pulled another tick off of him a few min ago I guess I over looked it . He acts like he can't hear , which is no big deal I've dealt with def pugs and blind ones, I'm going to look into getting him fixed , I'm going to wait with the girl since she's been through so much right now I don't want to set her back any. But I will get her fixed too. Im so glad my fiance is so understanding lol . My house is almost pug nation lol
Bless you for rescuing these precious ones. Patience and love will win them over in no time. Personally, I would give them new names to go with their new lives in their loving forever home.
We never touch people so lightly that we don't leave a trace.
So glad to hear everyone is doing well. And it sounds like you will be a good mom for them ! I think most dogs adapt well to new names, there are several on here that have done that with rescues. Like you said, it would giver her a fresh start. I say go for it!
thanks for taking the pugs in and giving them a forever home. This makes me happy.
Hopefully in time, they will feel very comfortable in their new home.
They are so lucky that you have given them a new lease on life! I too would change her name after all she probably didn't hear it often!

It's been tough . She still is running from me an pulling away when she's on a leash ( only way I can keep her from running away ) Idk what else to I've tried slow approach talking nice and treats. It's slowly working but very very slowly . Any other advice would help. She had to of been severely abused .
Good for you for rescuing! Both my pugs are rescued and my one had some serious issues with anxiety and aggression. It took a lot of patience and a lot of work, but he has come so far. When I first got him I was also concerned about our bonding as we didn't quite mesh like my other pug and I. Looking back, I think he didn't trust me. Over time, that changed. You would never know he was the same dog. Rescuing is a lot of work but so worth it!
