Phoebe’s story

Due to a change in personal circumstances Phoebe was surrendered to us. Like many cases it wasn’t through lack of love or care, but beyond anyone’s control.
Phoebe is the most affectionate little girl who steals the heart of anyone that she meets! She settled in so well at her foster carers, it was very hard for them to part with her. She even used to go to the office with her fosterer when she wasn’t working from home.
She’s now in her forever home with new pug friend Hugo, and they are already the best of friends! Her new family, unsurprisingly, are absolutely in love with her.

My wife and I collected him from John and Sylvia in Sheffield many years ago. We think he was about 18 years old.

Enormous thanks to our Mega Auction team

Enormous thanks goes to our magnificent Mega Auction team of volunteers, Rachel, Lorraine and Pauline.

They have achieved this staggering total this year from holding their year-round auction of donated items and crafts, to running the Mini Agility course at the Paws In The Park outdoor weekend event, (sadly so many others cancelled this year), to raffles of branded luxury items, plus many more donations and sponsored activities from our supporters, all for pugs in need.

Against that, is our ongoing, challenging vet bill.  However, our motto is “no pug waits” hence all fundraising is vital towards their healthcare.  PDWRA  is wholly run by volunteers.

If you’d like to donate, even £5 would help, via

Please reference “Vet Bill” using “Friends & Family”

Charlie’s story

Charlie is a lively 3 year old, who was surrendered to us ultimately due to his Mum’s increasing working hours, which meant that she was unable to give the supervision and attention that Charlie needed. He was quite a demanding boy who enjoyed being the centre of attention, was very reactive to noises or people and would try to bolt whenever the front door opened! Unfortunately, he also became irritating to their other dog, such that they eventually needed to be kept separated.

We placed Charlie with an experienced fosterer who put him through the necessary training to reform from being the pug equivalent of Houdini, to soon learning not to jump on tables and work surfaces or dashing out of the front door at the first opportunity. He was ready to go to his new forever home, where he’s now having a great life by the seaside.

This message is from Charlie’s new Mum:

“Firstly, we would like to thank PDWRA for giving us the opportunity to have Charlie in our lives. He bounced into our hearts 5 weeks ago and he hasn’t stopped bouncing! He is such a wonderful little character and has made our home feel whole again. We have learnt that he loves his food, his walks, stealing toys so that boys will chase him, and cuddles. He loves racing around the garden barking at anything that flies over from aeroplanes to birds and even butterflies. His snores are the loudest we have ever heard.  He has settled in really well and I think if he could speak, he would say he is happy!”

We think he looks happy in these photos, too!
