TWO adorable pugs who arrived at a rescue centre in "dreadful" condition have completed their road to recovery and have been rehomed.

In May, pugs Minnie and Pugsley and Staffordshire bull terrier Toxie were brought to Rev Marjorie Summerfield - at the Pet Rescue Welfare Association - after being removed by neighbours from a house on Ffordd Parc Bodnant in Prestatyn.

Marjorie, who founded the association in Dyserth, was fiercely protective of the dogs and said she would rather risk being arrested or accused of theft than give up three dogs who came into her care.

The black pug, aged one, needed treatment for an eye condition whist the fawn pug was "crawling with live fleas". The bull terrier was deemed underweight.

Determined Marjorie, and the rest of the team, nursed the dogs back to health and both pugs have gone to new owners. The bull terrier remains at the centre.

Speaking to the Journal, Marjorie said: "The two pugs have gone to a lady who trains guides dogs. We have still got the Staffie.

"The pugs have put weight on and but they had not been house trained. The new owner knows this.

"The Staffie has had trouble putting on weight. She eats but then drops a small amount. She is staying with us."

Marjorie has been running the Pet Rescue Welfare for 17 years.

In May, RSPCA attended the Ffordd Parc Bodnant house amid concern from neighbours that no one had been seen at there “for days”.

RSPCA officers removed one dog for clinical assessment and the animal was signed over into their care. The other three dogs were left in the Clwyd Alyn Housing Association-owned property. Shortly afterwards, Clwyd Alyn confirmed the resident had vacated the property at Ffordd Parc Bodnant.

The dogs came into Marjorie's care after a worried neighbour "banged down the door" and brought them the centre.
