Mad For Marley
I’ve always loved the look of a Pug. Call me crazy, but a squishy face, snub nose, stocky little body and curly tail scream cute to me!

Despite having never owned my own Pug, my interest in the breed led me to discover the incredible Pug Haven (Heaven), built by Malcolm and Cheryl Gaw, founders of Pug Rescue South Africa. It was around 2013 that I first attended a fundraiser at their Haven in Benoni, and from the moment I entered the gates of this shelter, I was blown away.

Plush Pugs joyfully bouncing about, bone-shaped doggie pools, a manicured garden and magnificent facilities – all immaculately maintained. You could see the care and attention to detail put into every part of this special place. As my future husband and I drank wine, listened to live music, cuddled more Pugs than we could count, and took part in the fun raffles and activities, we knew that these monthly fundraisers (known as a Yappy Hour) would become a regular part of our life as a couple.
