Meet Onyx Marie!

Note: This dog is not in our program.
This is a courtesy listing only, to assist in finding him/her a home.

Hi! My name is Onyx Marie. I am about 11 months old and weigh 10-12 lbs. Rescue thinks that I am part Pug and part Brussels Griffon. Even though I donít look much like a Pug, it does show in my personality. My previous owner was an elderly lady who just lost her husband and was unable to continue to care for me.

When I first came to my foster home, I was shy, but by the second day I was having a great time with my foster momís boy dogs that are a lot bigger than me! I am very loving, a snuggler, and playful. My foster mom says I am a gem!! Iím still working on the potty training, but what can you expect? I am still a baby! I am great with kids, other dogs and cats too!

One of my rear legs is bowed out, so soon my rescue friends are taking me to an orthopedic surgery to see if it is something they need to fix, or if it is just part of my charm. If it needs to be fixed, rescue will have that taken care of now and I will be on the mend in no time.

If you love me and want to adopt me, and/or rehab foster me, and/or even help rescue with my surgery costs, all or any of that would be great. Please send your application today. I am currently being fostered in the Tampa area and my adoption fee helps Rescue to pay medical bills for the more than 300 pugs they rescue each year. If you love me, but cannot adopt me please consider sending a donation to Rescue to help them pay medical bills for me and my fellow pug brothers and sisters. My Rescue friends are busy trying to find me and my other foster friends new homes, so please submit an application before contacting them about me.

Onyx Marie is with Pug Rescue of Florida, Inc. in Windermere, FL. For more information or to download an application- please visit PugRescueofFlorida.org
