Hi! I’m Pug. I’m one of the 26 adult dogs K Kids took from the Scott County Chiweenie hoarding case. I’m called Pug because I clearly am part pug. But I’m the BEST kind of pug: I can breathe really well!!!!
Pug has been with us for over a year. That’s probably most of his life. I’m sure some people would say we should just adopt him, but we know that won’t let him have his best life. He can’t thrive here being dog #7. Pug needs to be dog #2 or #3 in a household. Pug loves other dogs, and he loves to run around outside and play with other dogs. He loves to chase squirrels and do dog things. Pug also loves a nice pile of blankets, a comfy chair, or a fluffy dog bed. Pug has come to enjoy a nice rub from Foster Dad, late at night, after the Scary Lady aka Foster Mom, has gone to bed. You see, Pug came from a home with over sixty other dogs, and he didn’t get the socialization he needed as a young dog. People are scary. Even after a year, Foster Mom is really scary, because she occasionally catches him and takes him to the vet, trims his nails, etc. Will Pug take food from her hand? Yeah, that’s totally fine. It’s only when she tries to touch him that he bails.
Pug can be held---if Foster Mom catches him (which is easier than it used to be), he accepts his fate and even relaxes and allows himself to be petted. He can walk on a leash if he’s distracted from the fact that the Scary Chain Of Death is attached to him.
Pug just really needs to go somewhere he can be a dog, but also where he can expand his horizons and overcome some of his fears. Pug needs a dog buddy for sure. Pug might chase a cat, but I’m guessing if the cat told him to stop it, he would definitely stop it, haha. Pug would not love to live with little kids. Maybe bigger kids, but he would probably prefer a calmer household with one or two younger dogs he could party with.
