Hello! My name is Matilda and I am blind. That doesn’t slow me down though. I enjoy exploring my foster parents house and even their yard as long as it’s not that cold plus no snow. I’m good at finding my people and beds to nap in. I enjoy getting scratches and pets plus butt scratches get my tail wagging. I’ve come a long way in my few months with my foster family. I lived in a very small space previously so I am enjoying walking around. I might not be as fast as the other pugs but I am practicing and I will catch up soon. I really enjoy being with my people. Sometimes if I don’t know where they are I make little squeaky noises. That’s why my foster parents call me penguin sometimes.
I would really like someone who has time to spend with me and give me attention. I am a pretty brave pug and will walk in a direction until I find an obstacle then I change direction and keep going. I never really got to be a pet before as I just made puppies so I’m really learning how to be one. I enjoy my food and I make sure to clean my bowl. I only have 2 teeth left but that doesn’t stop me from eating kibble. My foster parents water it down for me. Sometimes they will give me some apple sauce or plain Greek yogurt. I eat those up too. I really like blankets so please put some down for me. I would like my own special person to love on me.
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.
