Lena, if you have any contacts with pug rescues in the Brooklyn area, can you network? If you check the main facebook thread Urgent PART 2's Photos - SUPER URGENTS THAT NEED OUT NOW!!! | Facebook you will see that there are at least two out-of-town rescues that will take him, but they need someone local to get him out of there, also money is pledged.
If anyone else can assist, please act now, time is really of the essence.
Affraid Im new to pugs, don't know anything about the rescues that might be in that area. I have seen a lot of ppl post about animals about to be euthanized on Craigslist.com, seems to be a really good way to find homes for them quick. Maybe you could try that?
Thanks Lisa, know how to use this site! Can't get over someone dumping their faithful puggy friend when they have health issues after 10 years. And it would seem that they are issues that love and commitment can cope with.
Anyone who can assist in saving this boy, please don't hesitate, and don't wait for someone else to do so!
