A pugnacious time was had by all at Pugapalooza.


The first annual Pugapalooza event was hosted by Kentuckiana Pug Rescue at Paroquet Springs Conference Center.

Pugapalooza was a special event focusing on pugs, a special breed of canine originally bred and domesticated for Chinese emperors and dating back to the days of Confucius.

The festival included special pug contests including races, best costume, best trick, Popsicle licking, best kisser and curliest tail.

Along with the prized pets, Kentuckiana Pug Rescue also featured rescued pugs available for adoption. For more information about adopting a rescued pug call 1-877-784-7988 or visit www.kentuckianapugs.com.

Pugapalooza booth vendors and sponsors included Alpha Pet Products, Chances Spot, Dogsloveit, It’s All About the Dogs, Kentucky Humane Society Behavior Department, Natural Balance Dog Food, Pet First Aid Instruction with Sara Beavin, PUGzone, Sew Doggone Cute, Trash to Treasures and Tupperware.
