Hello my name is Turbo. I have had a pretty rough life and it took me a long time to come out of my shell. I have had two foster mom’s take great care of me and give me the extra attention to learn to be a loving pet and now I’m ready for a forever home.
I have a few special needs things my new forever home will have to help me with. I have small physical abnormalities that make me Asymmetrical; this will most likely cause some arthritis when I’m older. So my foster family has me on a joint supplement to help me out. I also have eye medicine that I need twice a day for Dry eye and Pigmentary keratitis, this is most common in brachycephalic dogs, such as Pugs, Boxers, Bulldogs, and French Bulldogs. This means I do not produce tears on my own and there is a discoloration of my cornea and lens causing some depth perception and vision issues. Due to this I sometimes have a hard time going up and down the stairs. I especially have a hard time if the stairs have hollow risers. Depending on your house I may need to be carried up and down the stairs. Housetraining I’m like 90% there with the occasional accident.
Now onto the fun stuff. I am a very sweet boy. I get along with my foster family’s pets. This includes 3 dogs and 4 cats. I like children and I like it when people sit next to me and pet me, my personality is more like a cat, than a dog. Although I don’t jump up on the furniture; so I’m naturally better than a cat . I am comfortable sleeping in my crate or dog bed. When I first wake up and after I come back in from morning potty break I REALLY want Breakfast. After breakfast, I get this little energy spike! I want to play with my toys and do zoomies. I like toys that make a crunchy sound more than squeaky toys. The squeaky noise startles me and I normally stop playing with it. I can be very entertaining though and I’m very gentle when I play. I like to chase things briefly like a cat chasing a ball of string. And then I catch it and wiggle it. But I don’t really play tug and pull. When you leave the house, I’m comfortable sleeping in my bed with a radio or tv on or my crate. I’m really looking for a forever home that will treat me like a member of their family and get to know my delicate personality. I’m a gem amongst pugs and you won’t meet another pug just like me.
