PLEASE NOTE: All of our adoptable dogs are NOT adopted on a first come, first serve basis. We match the right pug with the right family. Please read the entire bio and details below before applying.
Age: 6 yrs
Previous Life: Shelter
Weight: 15 lbs
Housebroken: Yes! Pretty much housebroken, should probably wear a band at least in the beginning at a new place and will mark if another dog marks first
Good with dogs/cats/kids: Yes/ Unknown/No kids or older & calm kids preferred.
Likes: Very calm and prefers a calmer environment. He enjoys cuddling with our pug but does not seem to be very interested in trying to play with other dogs. Loves all types of treats and chews and cuddling.
Crate trained: Yes, currently sleeps in bed but has slept in a crate without issue and stays in the crate when we are out of the house
Fenced yard required: Yes! He is a runner. He is curious and will bolt out of open doors. He does stop after a bit but his recall is not good. Can jump fairly high as well so outdoor supervision with low fences is necessary.
Special Needs/Notes: On-going skin/allergy/auto immune issues and will REQUIRE a special diet of Honest Kitchen as well as medications and baths.
Brody is the perfect choice for someone looking for a cuddle buddy. He always likes to know where you are and his favorite thing is curling up on the couch with his people. Brody prefers to live the slow life and does fine great with low key people and animals. He is still recovering from his skin issues which means medication daily and regular baths. He is a good sport about the baths and likes to wear his clothes since he still gets cold easily. At night his favorite place to be is cuddled up with a human and his foster brother under all the covers though he will also sleep in a crate. He is housebroken with the caveat that he should probably initially wear a belly band in a new place and will mark if another dog marks first. He’s very food motivated (especially people food!) and the chihuahua in him means he’s surprisingly agile so be careful if you leave anything unattended. Brody likes going new places and exploring but he can be a runner so he either needs to be on a leash or in a fenced in area when outside. He can’t resist checking things out so his verbal recall is not very good and he’s faster than the average pug when something has his attention.
Due to the high frequency of applicants NOT ALL pre-screening emails will be responded to. PPN does not allow pugs to be shipped as cargo. For approved out of state adoptions requiring airfare the pug must fit in an airline approved sized carrier able to fit under the seat. Out of state adopters must arrange for transport and in some cases we may have volunteers able to help.
