Hi my name is Mackayla. My vet said I was between the ages of 4-6. I was an owner surrender from Sioux City. I came into rescue a few months ago extremely scared of everything and everybody. I’ve made a lot of progress learning to trust my foster family and our visitors. I still get nervous but I’m now seeking attention and wanting to be petted and loved. Big groups still scare me but I love one on one attention. I am very affectionate. I learned treats are very very good things to get! I like playing with the other pugs. I still don’t play with toys but I’m interested when the others are playing with them. I am not assertive in any way. I still have accidents in the house but it’s a lot less than when I first arrived. If you walk me I’ll do my business and be fine in the house for a couple hours. I’m kennel trained and don’t ever mess in my kennel. Sometimes my foster mom can say bed time and I’ll go right in, but other times I want her to pick me up and cuddle me before I go to bed. I’m actually trying to train my foster mom to do it every night lately because I really like cuddling! I only bark when there is a reason to. I’m a little hard of hearing. I sleep hard (or maybe don’t hear) when my name is called at first then I get startled awake and it scares me. Little kids still scare me. They move to fast. I did not have a good life before I was rescued so I would need your patience. If you can be patient with me, I promise I will love you with all my heart!
