Hi  I’m Athena and I was released by a breeder. I am 4 years old and have spent most of my life in a cage so I like the fact that my foster family lets me run free. I do have accidents in the house , mostly at night. My new home will need some patience while I learn to potty outside.  I learned the doggy door mostly by myself but I only use it when supervised by my foster mom.

I like when mom vacuums as she picks up all the toys but I know I can get  them all out and play with them again. I will do best in a home with another dog and will also require a fenced in yard for my safety. I have no experience with children but  it would be best if there are no small children in the home until I know that people are good and I’m not scared. I am still learning to trust humans.
With some patience I might be the right pug to share your furever home with. I live in Lincoln but foster mom will bring me to all the Meet & Greets in Omaha if you would like to meet me. Hope to see you soon and get  new experiences under my harness.
