Home for Hercules!
January 27, 2010

Dear pug friends and supporters,

We have an emergency situation with our sweet Hercules and are putting out an ALL CALL rally to help him.

Hercules is our sweet older boy whose elderly owner was no longer able to care for him. Herc is blind and hard of hearing, however he is potty trained to use his training pads in the mornings and he also eliminates on his daily walks outside.


He has become very attached to his foster mom and loves the security of being near her at all times. Unfortunately her living situation has changed and she will no longer be able to keep Hercules.

Our current temporary foster homes are filled to the brim and Curly Tail fears moving Hercules into another "temporary" home will break this sweet boy's spirit.

We are putting an all call notice out to try and find Hercules a Forever Foster home to avoid having to move him again.

Because Hercules is blind and deaf it takes him a long time to acclimate to his surroundings and we do not want him to move again only to lose another home.

Can you find it in your heart to take this sweet boy in and let him live out his Golden years with the peace and love that he so deserves?

Herc would do best in a one level quiet home where his human is around often to comfort him.

Please contact Jill with inquires regarding Hercules: jill@curlytailpugrescue.org

Would like to take Herc in but at 4 we are maxed out.
Having a senior pug and having them in the past people should know they really are great to have and even with some of the added care they are not that much trouble to care for, I think even easier than young pugs a little food a little time paying attention to them and they are content to sleep away the day.
Gertie was totally blind but you would never know it 99% of the time
and being blind made her double aware of things and that made her a great watch dog not much got past her.
So anybody thinking of taking Herc and have never cared for an old pug you will not be sorry. And he is pretty damn cute.

Oh my goodness! This breaks my heart! He looks sooo sweet! I almost adopted another pug today. By the time I got to the shelter she had already been taken by someone else. I hope you find a home for him. Poor baby!

She wouldn't like it! She pooped blood the week I had Bebe here from stress :( also I will be moving soon and would not want Herc to get used to one place only to move to another. I wish I could take him!!
