In Loving Memory


CPR Alum, Luna crossed the Rainbow Bridge earlier this month.  

From Luna’s mom: She was feisty, loving and extremely loyal. Wherever her people were that is where you would find her.  

Luna will be greatly missed by her human, pug and feline family.


In Loving Memory


From Lucy’s mom:  On August 4th 2013 I got a call from CPR that a 3 month old puppy named “Chicago” needed to be picked up as an owner surrender. The minute I saw her, I was in love. Within five minutes “Chicago” became “Lucy” and I knew I’d become a foster failure. My 8 year old pug, Lola welcomed her into our home and showed nothing but patience for the spunky little puppy. Lucy made me smile everyday and loved nothing more than to be near me and/or Lola.

On January 2nd my sweet, spunky, loving, happy, quirky Lucy crossed the Rainbow Bridge. It was the worst moment of my life. I miss her more than I can say and wish I could turn back time. My heart is broken for my puppy taken too soon. 

Thank you CPR for helping her find her way to me. I am forever changed by her and her spirit.

In Loving Memory

From Johnny Boy’s dad:  It’s with great sadness that I have to inform you that one of my CPR alum has crossed the Rainbow Bridge, where he will be great by my childhood dog, Ninja and CPR alum Andy and Bijoux. Johnny Boy was my best friend for 4 1/2 years. To all out there: adopt a senior. Their pure and grateful love is unparalleled. I think of the sticker that says ‘Who rescued who?’ When I think of my seniors. They rock!

Hi All,

My name is Boomer. I am 13 years young.. unfortunately, my people moved away and they could not take me with them. I was an only dog, left alone most of the day by myself. I was pretty bored and lonesome…so when they brought me to Compassionate Pugs to find me a forever home, I was elated.

Right now I am in a foster home and am being spoiled beyond my wildest dreams. My foster mom feeds me the best food…anyone hear of Spot’s Stew? Well, since I have been on this food, my skin and coat look great! (That’s why I look so young). I will say that I simply love to eat…so much so that you will always find me sitting in the kitchen…waiting for food.

My foster mom has two other dogs…I get along great with them. I have just one little problem, but it is not really a problem…my hearing is not as it used to be. When she calls for the other dogs to go outside, I follow them or my foster mom will motion for me to go out and we all run out together. I am 100% toilet trained, and know how to tell you when I want to go outside.

My foster mom will be very sad to see me go as she has fallen deeply in love with me, but that’s life and I need to be in a permanent home where I can have stability. I am a good dog and I will make you laugh…you should see me sit up like a person…everyone that meets me can’t get over it. I have a face you just want to love. I promise I will make you smile!!!
