Mitzie came to Colorado Pug Rescue in December of 2007. She suffered from diabetes and several other medical problems. In spite of these, she was a sweet, happy girl who loved to give kisses and cuddle.

Mitzie was lovingly cared for by her foster mom, Valerie. According to Val, it was Mitzie who made her fall head-over-heels in love with the pug breed. Val says, “I will think about her and miss her for the rest of my life. I love her so much. My heart broke when she died, and part of it went with her.”
