Meet Hokey

Hokey sadly entered rescue when his owner died, and sadly Hokey enter rescue morbidly obese at 40 pounds. Pugs have the tendency to gain weight easily and to keep gaining.  For a breed already born with a compromised respiratory system this can prove deadly.  We are happy to report that Hokie has already lost four pounds and will remain in rescue until a healthy weight is established.  He will only be placed with someone who will make a commitment to keep the weight off with a healthy diet and appropriate exercise.
