Hello there! I’m Jacqui and I would just like to take a moment of your time to introduce myself. As you reading about adoptable pugs, I suspect you may be looking to add a pug to your family. I might be just the right pug for you, so let’s find out, okay?
As you know, pugs were bred to be companion dogs, and I am a very typical pug in that regard. I love to be with you at all times! I’m not pushy though; I don’t want to be in your lap, or have you hold and snuggle me; I don’t really like that. I just want to be in the same room, and I will lie at your feet. I will also follow you around the house.
I like my dog bed, and I will admit it amuses me to steals bones and toys and put them in my bed. I just really like small stuffed toys and nylabones, so whenever I see some, I like to stock up and stash them away for later! Sometimes Foster Mom lets me chew on elk antlers, because I love to chew so much.
Foster Mom says I am really a sweet girl. I get along with the other dogs and I just ignore the cats. I don’t see very well, and especially not at night. She when we go in the backyard at night, Foster Mom takes a flashlight, so that I don’t run into things. She also says I don’t hear well either, but that’s to be expected when you’re 12 years old!
The vet said I have Struvite crystals in my urine, so I need to be on prescription kibble, to keep the PH level of my urine where it will dissolve the crystals and prevent them from forming bladder stones. I am getting used to being fed in my crate. I like it, because I am a good eater and not food aggressive, and this way I get to eat at a leisurely pace and not worry about the resident pug taking my food.
Foster Mom is teaching me all sorts of things, like going riding in the car, and walking on a leash. I don’t really ask to go outside, so she will take me outside fairly often, so that I don’t have accidents in the house. She says I am doing very well. I can tell she is proud of me, and that makes me happy.
I would like a Forever Mom that will be as patient and kind with me as Foster Mom is. Someone who understands senior pugs, and knows that accidents may happen, and I am doing my best to be a good girl that you will be proud of.
If I sound like I could be the right pug for you, please submit an adoption application and come meet me!
***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.***
My adoption fee is $125
