You may have seen brothers PugPug and Navy out and about living the good life around Asheville. You cannot miss their good looks and charm!  
 
Even though Navy and PugPug are not actually related, they have an amazing bond and together they can cause a little mischief, as anyone who has a sibling can attest to. They did not grow up together but they are living their senior years to the fullest in Asheville with their human family Rachael and Peter.

We are blessed to live in an area that mostly avoids extreme weather conditions like blizzards and hurricanes, but sometimes inclement weather does occur. Patient care is of paramount importance to us, but so is the safety of our staff.
