I love you, you love me, we could be a happy family!
I’m Barney! Like the big purple dinosaur but better, because I’m a lovable 14 year old pug, and much smaller than a dinosaur, although foster mom says I am a big pug!
Foster mom says I’m such a good boy. I use the doggie door like a pro. I also love chewing on bones and playing with toys. I get along with other pugs in my foster home, and when I visit other pug homes.
I wanted to sleep in the big bed with foster mom, but she prefers I sleep on a dog bed next to the big bed. So, I can sleep anywhere you want me to (but in typical pug fashion, prefer the “big bed” of course!
One thing you should know about me, I came into rescue heartworm positive in Jan 2015. I went through the treatment and it took almost 16 months to get that “Negative” result. But I am now free of any heartworm disease, and feeling much better. I love getting my monthly Heartguard pill to keep those nasty worms away, and must stay on heartworm preventative! And if your vet isn’t away that heartworm is in Arizona, please refer them to the American Heartworm Society website at https://www.heartwormsociety.org/ to learn more.
I eat a special prescription food that helps my kidneys. I think the heartworm treatment was a little hard on them, so this yummy food treats them nicely and helps keep me healthy. So what do you say? Can you open your heart to a velcro pug like me? We could be a happy family! Click the link and fill out the application to adopt me, Barney!
***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.***
