~ ~ ~ WELCOME ~ ~ ~
Yesterday after work I headed an hour and a half west to pick up a pug that had been left in a drop box at a shelter in Toledo, Ohio (home of Tony Paco's of M*A*S*H* fame). Normally I only foster female pugs ~ boys pee WAY to much for me! When Salty (he looks more like a Pepper to me!) got out of the volunteer's car, he immediately peed on her tire. When I put him in the crate in the back of my little SUV, he peed again out the side of the crate, thankfully missing me by only inches.
The shelter said Salty was about 8, but I'm guessing he is closer to 4. He has very little gray and boundless energy. He obviously had been someone's pet and was well taken care of at one time. Last evening watching a movie (Amelia ~ a so so movie IMHO) he was glued up against me or on my lap. He is crate trained, appears to be house broken and picky about what he eats. He would not eat dry food, but I gave him wet food and he quickly ate it like a little gentleman. He was a little stinky so a bath was on this morning's agenda and he bathed without problem.
Shortly I am taking him to an event in Akron where his new foster mom will meet him. After being neutered, micro-chipped and brought up to date on shots, he will be ready to begin his new life in a forever home.
He is so black it was impossible to get a good picture of him with a flash.
How could you not love that face? (Except for the gray on the chin, his face is all black ~ not sure what is showing in the picture.) Here he is with my Eema.
PLEASE!!! If you are in the market for a new pet (dog, cat, horse, even skunk!!!), please consider a rescue animal. There are SO MANY looking for their forever homes. Please do not support puppy mills by purchasing from a pet store.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Pug hugs :)
