The beauty of a rescue
The beauty of a rescue

Tiny Paws Pug Rescue

Our team loves this event.  Every year, we walk and raise money for the rescue.  This year - we walk with purpose and with joy.

Our community is socially diverse and geographically dispersed.  Its a group of people with big hearts and who support the mission of Best Friends, to "Save them all"  

Over the last year, we have gone through some challenging experiences with the loss of Pugs in our community that have crossed the rainbow bridge. 

People outside of this community or who have never had a dog see us mourning the loss of our dog and often think its an overreaction; after all, it’s “just a dog.”

However, those who have a pug in the family, know the truth: Your fur baby is never “just a dog.” They are your best friend and constant companion. A memorable and important relationship in your life. Perhaps if people realized just how strong and intense the bond is between people and their dogs, such grief would become more widely accepted.

That’s why we love our pug community; with no cultural playbook to help us through this time, this group has been writing there own. Some great examples of our community writing its own playbook are;

  • Lily Muenster's Mom who put her in physical therapy, massage and into wheels when she struggled to walk
  • Circus Pugs (@circus-pugs), Kennedy and her family’s beautiful service for Barnum
  • Weston's Mom and Dad carrying him to Pug Saturday so he could hang out with his friends, having him in physical therapy and working with him through vestibular disease @quatchipug
  • Butters tribute on Instagram that made us all sad for her Mom as the grief was palpable. 
  • Theo Chang’s, wonderful Sand, loving reminder and tattoo of Theo on her arm @thetheochang_n_zeldasesame
  • and Minnie and Max Pug celebrating Chubbs the Wampug’s life at their birthday party with a toast and Chubb's favorite, a strawberry

In recognition of the joy that these babies have brought us, as a community, we will be celebrating together in building our team for Strut Your Mutt,- the beauty that these dogs bring to all of us. It is the beauty of a rescue – combined with the open hearts of all of you. You make a difference every day to our rescue puppies, seniors, and disabled dogs. You are the game changer. As you may celebrate in honor of one of your dogs, we also celebrate the commitment of this community to change the world, one pug at a time.


Join our team for this year’s Strut Your Mutt, in San Francisco, on September the 7th.

With respect and gratitude,
