Hi everybody! My name is Sammy. I'm about 5 years old, weigh 16-½ pounds, and as you can see from my picture I'm a stunningly handsome fawn-colored male Pug. I came into rescue because my owners were unable to care for me and luckily for me SBRET was able to take me in. I am such a loving little dude!
I do have seizures but I'm on medication for them and they are under control. I'll have to stay on medication for the rest of my life but it's not very expensive. And of course if you are familiar with the Pug breed you know I shed--I shed a lot! You also need to be careful with me in extreme temperatures due to my short snout! Just all the usual stuff that comes along with this fun-loving breed.
I get along just fine with my furry foster brothers and sisters but I really prefer to be in the company of my humans. Since I have seizures, if you do have other dogs I'll need to be crated when you aren't around to supervise. It's for my own safety just in case I do have a seizure. I did have a few potty accidents in the house when I first came to my foster home but after I settled in my foster mom said I don't do that anymore. But please be patient with me while I adjust to a forever home. I will do best with a fenced yard for potty breaks as I have a bit of a collapsing trachea which is common in small dogs - if I pull while on a leash and harness it can sometimes make me cough. I do love car rides though! I like to sleep with my people and I promise I don't take up much room. Sometimes I can be a little barky with strangers especially men but I warm up very quickly. Oh and I love gentle kids a lot!
I am neutered, microchipped, up to date on all vaccines and on heartworm & flea prevention. My adoption fee is $175.
