SAUKVILLE, Wis. – Four little Pugs were brought to the Wisconsin Humane Society's Ozaukee Campus last Tuesday after the Ozaukee County Sheriff’s Department responded to calls about several pugs running loose near Lake Shore Road in the Town of Grafton.

According to the Wisconsin Humane Society, an officer was able to wrangle three of the Pugs, and a citizen brought in the fourth dog.

The four adult Pugs were named Pugster, Pugsley, Pugzilla and Pugsworth by Wisconsin Humane Society employees -- who originally suspected that the Pugs had gotten loose and would be quickly claimed.

The Humane Society says no one has come forward during the mandatory stray hold period, so the shelter is getting them ready to be adopted to new loving families.

“We have no idea why four little Pugs were running amok in a field, but we’re just glad that they were found safe and brought to the Wisconsin Humane Society,” said Angela Speed, vice president of communications at WHS in a news release.

The dogs range in age from about 2 years old to about 10 years old. They are all females.

“They are heartbreakingly cute and silly,” Speed said. “Two of the Pugs have gotten dental treatments and spay surgery, and should be available today. The other two are likely to be available later this week, and we are going to need extra help in placing Pugsworth. The sweet senior has numerous growths, a collapsed but non-painful eye, as well as dental issues, so we’re looking for someone willing to open their heart and home to a very special dog with medical conditions.”
The dogs will be posted to the Humane Society's website as soon as they are available for adoption. Adoptions are first-come, first-served, as long as it’s a good fit. 

The Pugs can be adopted separately, although staff would welcome adopters willing to take on more than one.
