I Present Fred....More to come later.
Fred is our new foster dog. J and I occasionally foster pugs for South Eastern Pug Rescue . Both Alfred and Holly were adopted thru SEPRA. Anyway, I got a call that a woman near me was going thru a life change and wouldnt be able to care for Fred anymore. More often than not, when someone surrenders a pug, the pug is coming from a very bad situation and in poor health. Puppy mill breeders, people that think Pugs can live outside, neglect etc. Not the case with Fred. He was very loved and very well taken care of. I could tell it was hard for the family to give him up, but they knew it was best for him. Fred is 4 years old and up to date on shots and already neutered. He is so funny! I was told that he didnt like to play, but that is definetly not the case. As soon as Fred saw that we had two other pugs, he started running and playing and doing all kinds of funny pug things. He hasnt had any accidents in the house so far...And it does fine in his crate at night.
Anyway, we will foster Fred until the right home comes along for him. Adopting a pug is a serious matter. There is a huge application to fill out, references to be checked, and a home visit. Since Fred is young and well behaved (so far!) I think he will probably get adopted quickly ( 2-3 weeks).
