You can imagine how excited I was to get a session inquiry for a pug named George – and a rescued pug at that! George’s mom shares my love of rescue dogs and knew that even though she wanted a purebred puppy, rescue was still an option. Karma has repaid her tenfold with pretty much the most awesome dog ever! George somehow manages to be incredibly cuddly and playful without being high-maintenance. He can go from snoring like a man in his favorite spot to playing fetch in 0 to 60 – he’s happy to do whatever you ask.

George is ten years old now. He lost his sight in one eye when he was just four months old, and then two months later he was hit by a car…and that family that purchased him wanted to euthanize him instead of paying the $300 it would cost to put his leg in a cast. That turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as it led to him finding a much better family who loves him as every dog deserves to be loved. Now there has been and always will be a window in the sun, a welcoming lap, and hands to throw his favorite ball or rub his belly, whichever the moment calls for. ♥
