Have you ever seen a frug? Let alone heard of one? Today I volunteered at the Ohio Pug Rescue booth at the Akron Pug Fest. As soon as I laid eyes on this guy, I was guessing I was seeing my first ever frug. A cross between a French bulldog and a pug. Growing up, we called them mutts, but now they are designer dogs . . . lol. He was half of a bonded pair that was looking for a home.
OPR does not do on site adoptions. Those wishing to adopt must go through an application process and then be interviewed. There were many who fell in love with Pretty Girl and several who indicated they would be filling out an application to adopt her. She was her typical "wild child" self today, constantly stealing toys from our bins. She sure is a charmer :)

Ernestine also got her share of attention.

I wish I had remembered to take more pictures. The most common color for pugs is fawn or black. But there are many shades of fawn. Apricot colored pugs are much rarer. A few are even brindle. Pretty Girl is very petite weighing about 15 pounds. There were a lot of "big girl" and "big boy" pugs probably weighing close to 30 pounds. I'd love to know the count on how many were in attendance. I'm guessing it had to be 100? 150? I don't know but there were pugs everywhere (along with other breeds). It was a very successful event for OPR. I heard they made almost $750. The nice thing is that the rescue is 100% volunteer, so every dime goes to help the pugs :)

Here is Pretty Girl tonight. She follows me from room to room and is crashed under the desk while I type this post. I think she is one tired, content little pug :)
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
