Please Help Monty!

We’ve rescued Monty about 6 months. He was found running around the streets, skinny and dirty. He is only 2 yrs. old, but other than neutering and palate he was good.  Last week out of the blue he started having difficulty breathing, we rushed him to the Vet and they said he had air in his chest, he had a leak from his lungs. After removing the air from his chest he seemed better, but after re-running x-rays, they found some air bubbles in his lung. We rushed him to a specialist, they did a CT Scan and they found he had Spontaneous Pneumothorax, which is air bubbles/blisters in his lung that can rupture. This is a problem known to Huskies, but some Pugs get it. In all the years we have been dealing with Pugs we’ve never heard or experienced this.  From the CT Scan he was rushed to surgery, all of this happened within 24 hrs. We had to do the surgery right away, because if another bubble ruptured we would have lost him. 

They had to remove the entire right lung. The surgery was very extensive. His incision goes from the middle of his chest to the middle of his back.

He is recuperating and doing well. But, and there is always a but, the CT scan was $2K and the surgery $5K.

We have 4 weeks to come up with the money!!!! They were kind enough to at least give us some time to raise the funds.

PLEASE if you can help in any way we would appreciate it!

Please send your donations either via check, Pay Pal (they take credit cards too!)  or call us for a credit card donation if you don’t have a pay pal account

In loving memory of our volunteer and friend
Ted Johnson
Feb. 28, 1939 – Jan. 2, 2012


On January 2, 2012, we lost our beloved volunteer, friend and one of the founders of Pugs 'N Pals, Ted Johnson. A very sad day for Pugs 'N Pals and for all the homeless Pugs at large.

Ted gave his all to the Pugs, he was so passionate that 14 yrs. ago he was one of the founding members of Pugs 'N Pals. He drove anywhere if there was a Pug in need. Once he drove to Sacramento (he lived in Riverside) and picked up 5 Pugs that needed help and drove right back all in one day. "NO" was not in his vocabulary when it came to helping a Pug in need. He always said that Pugs changed him and his life for the better.

Ted was a vital part of Pugs 'N Pals. Never missing a fair or an event. One of his many duties was bringing the equipment to all our events. Without him we couldn't have done events. There was always a smile on his face. He was a quiet man, and many people truly didn't know the big heart he had for our helpless babies.

Ted also worked for the Riverside Humane Society for 8 yrs. Helped many many dogs. Spent time with them, held them, loved them, tried to find them homes. For many the love that Ted gave them was the only love they knew and sadly for many it was the last love they experienced.

What most people probably didn't know about Ted is that he was an accomplished artist. He painted BEAUTIFUL Pug pictures, made beautiful wood Pug statues. Some of you might even own one. He designed our logo as well as the PUGTOBERFEST logo.

If you needed anything, Ted was there, a friend till the end and always with a funny comment or remark. We are all heartbroken to lose such a vital part of PNP and such a wonderful friend. He will be terribly missed by all.

Ted's family is asking for a donation to Pugs 'N Pals in his honor. Goodbye dear friend, until we meet again, take care of all the little ones at the Rainbow bridge. We love you Ted!! The Pugs 'N Pals family.
