BOO! Yes, I’m Boo Boo. But, I’m not scary, I’m actually very sweet. I’m a 15 year old gentleman who loves cuddling up with foster dad. I came to APARN quite the hefty guy, but the foster parents keep me on a strict diet so I’ve already lost several pounds! It’s so much easier walking and getting around now. My New Year’s resolution is to lose a few more pounds and I’m well on my way! And yes, I enjoy my walks. I really enjoy being outside with foster dad and the boys that live here. I like riding in the car as well.
I get along with the small dogs and pugs that live in my foster home. I’m also fine with the young boys that live here. I don’t really enjoy playing with them, but I’ll take all the petting and love they’ll give me. The “Fosters” think I might be losing some vision and hearing, but hey, I’m 15 years old! With that, I’d probably do better in a home with older children who don’t startle or step on me. There are no cats around here (foster mom says they make her sneeze), but they don’t bother me when I see them on our walks. I’m pretty sure they don’t make me sneeze.
I use the doggy door like a champ and the Fosters wish I could get the other pug in the house to do the same. I’ve tried, but he’s impossible! They said I deserve a medal for Zero Accidents While in Foster Care! I’d been with my previous family and pug sister my entire life so coming into foster care has been a bit of an adjustment for me. I’m feeling comfortable now, but really don’t like being alone. I’ll cry at the door when I’m left and really hate it when foster dad has to go to work. I’d love a home where someone is home most of the day. A fellow pug companion would be awesome! I definitely don’t want to be the only dog in the house. I really just snuggle up in my bed and sleep a lot; I’m no problem at all. I do like sleeping on the bed with my people. That’s another reason foster mom put me on a diet. I do need help getting off the bed and the Fosters say I have the cutest, squeaky bark. I’m not on a special diet; I eat what the rest of the dogs in the house eat. My second New Year’s resolution is to find my Forever Home this year. Won’t you help a guy out? Fill out an application and don’t forget the name’s Boo Boo.
***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.***
