Adorable Diego traveled to Oregon from Mexico in November, 2021 through an organization that
rescues street dogs. He suffered from hip and patella deformities that greatly impacted his comfort and
ability to live an active life of fun and frolic expected at his approximately 3 year age. Pacific Pug Rescue
took him into care so he could receive the necessary medical care to correct his issues to ensure a
happy, healthy life in a loving home as he so deserved. He had bilateral MPL surgery in January and
began the long process of recovery and healing. He received wonderful rehab services though Healing
Arts Animal Care and made a full recovery.
The blood panel taken prior to his dental cleaning and removal of decaying teeth indicated a concern
regarding his kidneys. Sadly, further testing revealed chronic kidney failure which will dramatically
reduce this sweet baby boy’s little life. Therefore, Diego will remain in his foster home where he is
cherished and will continue to receive PPR’s support and expertise.
At this time, Diego is not experiencing negative symptoms and is soaking up life as part of a family of
dogs, cats, and people who love him. He is filled with joy and excitement when his harness comes out
for his daily walk through the neighborhood where he is becoming well known. He is playful and loves
his stuffies (especially the sheep that is bigger than him!), is silly and curious, and is a champion snuggler
who loves to burrow in a pile of soft, fuzzy blankets. Diego is looking forward to a summer of warm
weather and new adventures.
