Loyal rescue pug Doug wants his adoring owner Julie to find unconditional love and happiness – and he knows she won’t find either in the arms of Luke, her married boss. 

Doug is terrified that Julie will become a lonely cat-lover if she stays single too long, but he can’t let her fall for any more of Luke’s empty promises. Julie needs to move on – and Doug is convinced that Tom, a newly divorced V-E-T, is perfect for her (despite his questionable occupation). 

There’s just one problem: Julie and Tom can’t stand each other.

Doug doesn’t quite understand the quirks and complexities of human relationships, but he won’t let thatget in the way of his mission to bring Tom and Julie together. After all, being a ‘rescue’ works both ways…


Cute, comical, and charming!

Pug Actually is a quirky, heartwarming tale that takes you into the life of Doug, an adorable, four-legged Pug as he embarks to do whatever it takes, even causing himself harm so that he has to visit the dreaded V.E.T., in order to get his owner, Julie, to turn her pretty eyes away from her selfish, two-timing, married boss, Luke, and onto the handsome, caring, recently-divorced veterinarian, Tom.

The writing is light and witty. The characters are sharp, vulnerable, and endearing. And the plot is an amusing blend of life, love, introspection, friendship, family, hilarious hijinks, awkward situations, embarrassing moments, misunderstandings, taking chances, and the highs-and-lows of finding the one.

Overall, Pug Actually is a sweet, humorous, satisfying read by Dunn that’s full of engaging characters, an entertaining storyline, and a dreamy, happy-ever-after ending.
