My real name is Pugsy. My foster mama calls me Pooky and my foster daddy calls me Moose. I’m a big lovable 4 year old boy. I’m tall and lean and solid from my time spent playing fetch. I love tennis balls, especially the smaller ones that are easier to catch. I’ve been here with my foster family for a few weeks now and they tell me what a good boy I’ve become. I’ve been working on something called manners and my 3 pug foster sisters have been showing me the ropes. I’ve learned to sit for treats and not to take what isn’t mine. I’ve learned that I’m supposed to only potty outside so I don’t have to wear that silly belly band any longer. I still get pretty talkative when I want something but mama says I’m getting better about that. I’ve learned to sleep in the big bed with everyone else and I sleep all night long now. I really do like to cuddle up with the humans and get some good pet time. I don’t require a fence but I really do love running and playing fetch so a fenced yard would be great. I would love to have someone home with me during the day or a fur sibling to keep me company. I need someone who will keep reminding me of my manners and let me keep learning to be a good boy.
