What is BarkBox? BarkBox is a New York City based dog-lovin' 
company that sends high quality dog products to your pup every month. Each box is full of 4-6 goodies like bones, bully sticks, toys, treats, gadgets, 
shampoos, hygiene products, and more.

Adopting a shelter or a rescue dog is a wonderful experience. It is important to be ready for the responsibility 
of being a pet owner. Many people adopt or rescue a dog without considering the long term costs associated 
with owning a dog. Unfortunately, a good percentage of adopted dogs end up where they started. 
It is important to remember that adopting a dog is a significant decision. 
The dog is counting on you to be his forever owner. Use our pet calculator to determine an 
approximate cost of owning a dog.

Lost Pugs - Please Help!

**If you have found a lost/stray pug**:
Please contact your local animal shelters and veterinarians offices prior to contacting 

MN Midwest Pug Rescue. 

Quite often, owners of lost pets have contacted these agencies looking for their pets. 

Additionally, shelters and veterinarians can scan the pet to see if it is micro chipped and 

reunite it with its owner. 

Due to many city ordinances and laws the pug must be at the local shelter for a specified number

of days before the rescue can step in and take the dog. Please consider taking the dog to the local shelter instead of your home so 

that the process of either finding the owner or getting the pug into rescue can be expedited. 

As a rescue we work with many of the shelters and may be able to pull the pug from the shelter after the initial hold period.
