Charlotte | Pug Photography Session

I first met Charlotte at a Wollongong Pug Meet just over a year ago. This beautiful girl has an amazing story. It has been a tough life but she is one happy pug who is loved by all who meet her, especially her family. She has an amazing spirit and we could all learn a bit about life from Char. And I was lucky enough to head to Char’s home and photograph her for her very own pug photography session. So let me introduce to you Charlotte. Enjoy!

Charlotte’s story as told by her mum, Robyn.

Our little girl Charlotte (‘Char Char’) was diagnosed with a congenital spinal disorder not long after she turned 6 months old. At that time Char Char could no longer move her back legs properly and we were told if she kept growing much larger it would put too much pressure on her spine. The thought of not having Charlotte by her first birthday was heart breaking.

That summer Char took daily walks in her pink pram and many people thought she was a spoilt little pug but little did they know.

A year later with the help of our local vet, a Sydney spinal specialist vet, a fabulous animal physiotherapist Char stopped her medication and began to run around again and tease big dogs, much to the delight of family and friends.

Since that time Char has been nothing short of a little miracle overcoming further issues including a luxating patella and multiple mast cell tumours requiring surgeries and having a little fighting spirit not letting her age and other recurrent health issues hold her back.

She is now over nine years old, still enjoys short trots down at the park and beach in her little coats and pram rides to cafes. She also attends the Wollongong & South Coast Pug Meet where she is affectionately known as the little ‘Queen Bee’ overseeing the other pugs running around.

None of this would have been possible without support from her pugparents, her uncle and the wonderful veterinary teams: Canon & Ball Wollongong and ARH Homebush Sydney who have always been so supportive.
