Princess Grace Patricia

Meet Princess Grace Patricia

Princess Grace Patricia (now Mabel), one of two beautiful pug girls who were abandoned at a gas station in this February.

Princess Gracie’s Story

Gracie was found abandoned at a gas station in February with Princess Diana Frances (Dee Dee) . Gracie is approximately 8 years old,  She is a lovepug who enjoys snuggling and naps,but also loves to play with her toys. 

So far, the vet has determined that she is heartworm and lyme negative, and she is now up to date on her shots and microchipped. She does have two luxating patellas that probably can’t be fixed, but she still gets around great. She has an umbilical hernia but that will be repaired during her spay surgery.

From Princess Gracie’s Family
A few months ago my husband and I decided we wanted to adopt a pug, a breed we have been “rescuing” for over 25 years. We are so fortunate to have found Appalachian Pug Rescue. Each pug featured on the site had a unique story, and we truly appreciated the honest assessment of each one’s behavior, medical conditions, and prospective challenges.
Kelly and her volunteers are clearly committed to finding the best furever home for their pugsters, so we were truly honored to have been chosen to adopt Mabel (formerly Princess Gracie).
The transition to our home was made much easier because of the care that was provided by Kelly and foster parents Nomy and Brian from the time Mabel was brought in to the rescue. Mabel has settled in nicely with us and is even more content since she had some major dental issues resolved. This sweet little girl is such a joy, and we are sincerely grateful to Appalachian Pug Rescue for introducing us to her and for their tireless efforts on behalf of pugs.
