The Joy of Senior Pugs
With the daily hustle of bustle of our lives, our four-legged friends gradually change over time. A little extra gray on the chin, a step or two slower on a walk. The changes are natural and not noticeable from day-to-day. Many pugs grow old with the families that loved and nurtured them over the years, but unfortunately not all pugs get that chance.
For whatever reason, many pugs end up looking for new forever homes when they reach their golden years and need a loving family more than ever. When looking for a new family, these golden oldies are often quickly glanced over simply because of their age. Many do not stop to see what a loving companion a senior pug can be.
There is a special bond shared between the newly adopted senior pug and family. You can see the gratitude in their eyes and feel the love when they curl up beside you on the couch. You were there for them when they needed you most and they will spend every day of the rest of their lives letting you know the love and joy that comes from being owned by a pug!
A Few Words From Those Who Have Adopted Senior Pugs
I can’t begin to tell you what a joy and rewarding experience it has been having Howie with us. I never thought having a senior would be so wonderful. He has touched a special place in my heart I didn’t know existed. We LOVE him so much, and we get the love back tenfold! He has taken a very special interest in me. He follows me where ever I go and sleeps with me every night. I spoil him so much. He does great with my other two younger pugs and can keep up with them. He has even stole the hearts of everyone we know.
They all call him Grandpa, as we do also smile He is just one sweet old man. There is nothing more heartfelt than being loved by a senior pug. They just have so much love to give. And this is by far the most rewarding thing I have ever done. To all pug lovers out there, remember senior pugs need love too, and they can and WILL absolutely touch your heart. Thank you so much Marcia and Compassionate Pug Rescue for letting us give this special boy a second chance at life! We are looking forward to lots more love the rest of his remaining years!
We are now the proud parents of 2 senior pugs (10+ years of age) from CPR. They are full of love and joy, and they still have a lot of puppy in both of them. The most important times of day for them are mealtime and nap time, in that order. We are blessed to have Eddie – he is a perfect addition to our family!

I would recommend that everyone should take in a senior pug. They are so loving, and so thankful for any attention and effort that you give them. We keep promising her that what is left of her life, will be wonderful and meaningful. Just as she has added so much meaning to our lives as well. Thank you again, and I am so glad to report that this is a wonderful happy beginning for all of us.
