My fiance rescued a pug from a No Kill shelter several years ago. He was so severaly abused he was missing almost all of his fur and he had fleas so bad he lost 1 of his eyes so my fiance named him Uno. He didn't know how to walk on grass or even play. He never barked, gave kisses, or jumped up to greet us. Sadly Uno passed away last year and my fiance was devistated to say the least, So when we came across the chug I knew I had to get him a Chug puppy! If any one could let me know of any puppies in the Pennsylvania are I would greatly appreciat it. Thank You. Amy Sheffler
