Hi – My name is Ladybug. Unfortunately, my human mom had to go into a nursing home to get the care she needed. For several months, she tried to get better and did not want to give me up. The bad part was, I was in my home for that time with only a friend of my mom’s to let me out and feed me a couple times a day. I was very lonely. That’s when Pug Partners found me and sent me to my foster family. I had a really bad urinary tract infection, but we got that cleared up so I’m healthy again now. I’m doing much better with not having accidents – I mean give me a break, I had an infection and very little human interaction for a few months. I have never been a fan of my feet getting cold or wet! So, when it’s snowy, cold, or muddy… I do not like walking outside, so you’ll have to really encourage me on those days to go potty out there! I also like you to be there with me with a leash, because it will take a while for me to figure out my boundaries.
My foster family has two other pugs and three kids. Wow! I have never been around so much action. These kids are great and I absolutely love playing with them. I get along very good with my laid back pug foster brother, but my foster sister Sassy gets under my skin a bit. She thinks she is the boss! I would prefer a home where I get to be the boss. One thing I like to do is stay close to the door and take any opportunity I can to sneak out. My foster family thinks I haven’t been around cars much, because the couple times I successfully snuck out the door, I wandered around the whole neighborhood without a care in the world… HaHa! They had to chase me down, it was really fun!
As you can imagine, I’m not really fond of when my family leaves the house. I think I got a little separation anxiety from the months I spent lonely in my house. But, my foster family has to work, so I’m getting used to spending a few hours in my spacious kennel during the day. I pretty much just take a nice nap! I have been sleeping in the bed with my foster family. They really spoil me. I snore once in a while, but not too bad. I kind of like snuggling and sleeping with someone at night – it’s that separation anxiety thing. I’m looking forward to finding my forever home. The people at Pug Partners promised me that I’ll never have to be lonely again. What a relief!
