Hello, it’s me; Adele! I’m around 12 years old, and apparently my previous owners didn’t realize that free-feeding pugs is not a good thing, because we just love food so much we will eat way too much, and that results in a fat pug. You see, pugs are not really supposed to be as fat as you see them in all the movies and tv ads. Yes, we are “a lot of dog in a little package,” but that really talks more to our attitude, not our actual weight.
I enjoy hanging out with other dogs, older children, and pretty much anyone who will rub my tummy! Because I am a senior pug, I do place a pretty high importance on naptimes! After my dental cleaning, I don’t have a lot of teeth left, so my foster family has been giving me canned dog food. I really like it, and I’m a good eater. What I really need is a forever family that will commit to helping me take off a few pounds. It will help reduce the pressure on my joints, and it will also add years to my life and life to my years!
I look forward to meeting you!
***We appreciate your interest in adopting a pug in need. Please respect our process and our time, as we are all volunteers with full time jobs. An application starts the process. We are not able to answer calls with questions about the foster pugs. ***
***We encourage you to come to our adoption events to meet the pugs in person if you are interested in adoption. Again, please do not call regarding the adoptable pugs. APARN is an all volunteer non-profit organization. We do not have a shelter. Our dogs are currently being fostered in private homes generally located throughout the greater Phoenix metro area.***
