Ice Cream Treats For Pugs

Well actually this frozen treat can be made for any dog, we just like Pugs around here. If you've ever purchased Frosty Paws you know how much Pugs love them. You'll also know just how much they cost, especially if you have a multi dog household like I do. So here is a fabulous recipe I found, it's easy and good for your Pugs too. The original recipe came from PetnBlog.

32 ounces vanilla yogurt (I used Stonyfield Farm, there is no added sugar in it & it's all natural.)
1 mashed banana or 1 jar of baby fruit
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons honey
Blend all together and freeze in either 3 ounce paper cups or ice cube trays. Microwave just a few seconds before serving.

I used the above cupcake pan, it is made out of silicone. It's great you can freeze the treats w/out a cupcake liner & they pop out very easy.

Precious Lives Saved

Dakota's New Family

Last weekend Dakota found her forever home. It was a very exciting day for everyone. Her new mommy drove all the way up to Tampa from South Florida. She brought along her two dogs: Baxter & Bella. Everyone got along well from the moment they all met. Bella was a little timid, but her mom says that's her nature.  Now you see in the photo below, Bella and Dakota are best of friends.

It took quite a few tries to get everyone in one photo, but it finally happened. 
Bella is on the left, then Dakota & her pug brother Baxter. Her new mom tells us that everyone piles in with her at night, she even has a ramp for them to get up on the bed. 

Looks like Bella has come out of her shell. She and Dakota like to run in the back yard and wrestle on the floor.

Dakota's Journey

Meet Dakota. Dakota was hit by a car one week prior to this photo above. She was badly bruised and had a severe injury to her right front leg. Do to unknown reasons she did not receive the medical treatment she needed. As a result of this her right front leg became infected with gangrene. This left the leg unusable and rotting with bones exposed. This is when Pug Rescue of Florida came into her life. She was surrendered and finally received the medical attention she desperately needed. The doctors were not able to save her deteriorating leg and agreed it would be best to amputate. 

After many days in the hospital she was well enough to go into foster care. For the first time in over a week, she was able to rest comfortably.  She did not have to worry about pain, food or getting the attention she needed. She was safe in the hands of Pug Rescue of Florida. 

Weeks after her surgery she has recovered better than anyone could have expected! She runs and plays with her new friends, no one would ever guess she has only three legs. 

This little girl is the sole reason why Pug Rescue of Florida exists. To give pugs a second chance of having the best life possible.
