This sweet thick girl lives up to her fancy name. She loves the finer things in life. Treats, food, a comfy bed and lots of pampering lap time. She has some vision loss due to cataracts and PK but it doesn’t hold her back. She gets around just fine. Stairs are tricky but she manages to figure them out. She’s more of a lone diva. She loves dog-savvy kids of all ages but probably would fit in best in a calm household with possibly older kids. She will make sure you know she’s there but pushing her way into your lap for some serious loving. She is house trained like a rock star and will go to the door when she has to go out. Even rain doesn’t deter her! She is crate trained and sleeps fine in it at night or for short stints during the day. She can feed off other dog’s anxiety or barking but solo she is pretty quiet unless she thinks it’s time to eat. She needs to lose more weight but she’s working on it with her diet and exercise regimen and daily walks are helpful. She takes daily supplements and eye drops but is overall very healthy. She walks great on a leash but does have a luxating patella and some arthritis but the supplements help and she doesn’t let it slow her down. She will make sure her forever home knows how much she loves and appreciates them with lots of kisses and snuggles. Does Gucci sound like the diva girl your house needs?
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.
