Exclusive Tell All Interview With Inspiring Rescue Pug
Fishstick the Pug is the star of our new award nominated road trip comedy series Backseat Barkers.
The Backseat Barkers follows newly blended family Jess and Hugh, and their very different dogs Fishstick and Lottie, as they hit the road across Ontario. Lottie and Fishstick are not as happy about the new relationships as Jess and Hugh and share their thoughts from the backseat.
Award Nominated Comedy Series with a Serious Message
We are so proud to have been nominated for Best Video in The annual BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Awards. We can’t wait to walk the red carpet and catch up with Amy and our other blogger pals at the conference June 23rd-25th, 2016 in Phoenix. We hope our series informs people that different breeds have different needs and inspires others to consider adopting a pet from a rescue or shelter.
Pizza-Loving Pug Tells All (or nothing)
Fishstick the Pug sat down for a hilarious one-on-one interview with the editor of Pet Guide, Amy. They chatted about the series and the perks of being a celeb and shared some pug love.
Fishstick the Pug is on the rise with several leading roles under his belt and some very notable friends including Doug the Pug, Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund, Iggy Joey, Miss Edie the Pug, Tuesday the Pug and the list goes on. He hung out with other celebs and fans recently while filming at Woofstock.
Fame may have gone to his head a little as Fishstick, the pizza-loving pug seemed somewhat obsessed with swag and treats in his interview. Although that is a Pug thing.
He was a little elusive about his relationship with talented, beautiful Backseat Barkers co-star Lottie the Border Collie offscreen.
Fishstick, the once abandoned pug is now living the life with his new forever family and they all couldn’t be happier. When asked in the interview if he channels his experiences from the shelter system into the series? His response says it all.
“Its all about being wanted and loved that’s what everybody in the backseat barkers family is trying to figure out”
One of our missions with Talent Hounds is to promote rescue dogs, just like Fishstick, who also appeared in our TV documentary Rescue Rock. We aim to show the many talents these dogs have, that they aren’t necessarily broken or damaged and that they can be amazing.
We are a supporter of PugALug Pug Rescue, where Fishstick was rescued and adopted from and we will be donating a portion of revenue from YouTube this month.
A large part of reducing the number of dogs who end up in shelters is to do research about the breed before adopting. Pugs, for example, are a breed that requires a lot of attention and time. Each breed is unique and requires different things to meet their needs. The best way to known if a specific breed is right for you is to not only do research but talk to rescue groups and industry professionals who can give you more insight.
