Well my son from up in Connecticut surprised me yesterday (My 50th birthday) by knocking on my door! I was so surprised, best birthday ever!!! Well he came right in & sat on the big rug in the kitchen (where Takota Tucker loves to sleep) And stared to pet Takota, he sat there forever & got up & came into living room & he started asking me questions about Takota. Remember this is the son who has a pug & is pug NUTS! We were sitting here talking & all of a sudden my son looks at me ever so dead serious & says to me..........."Mom? Let me take this little guy to New England" I was like "WHAT?" He said mom when I walked in here and looked at Takota, there was a connection! (Takota doesn't get excited about nothing, but he was so hyped up   & all over my son, it was like the lite bulb was turned on again in Takota. He even played which we have not seen since we have had him. He was ALL about my son. Anyway, my son is really wanting to take him back with him. Him & his wife have been talking about getting another pug for the last several months. As some of you know my son & his wife spoil their pug Odie (my grandpup) HORRIBLY! LOL but he is a good spoiled. So Mike & I are like, we don't know what to think here. We love him to death, but we also saw that light bulb in Takota go off when he was with my son. So which is worse to selfishly keep him here with us or unselfishly let him go to where he can really be happy? Mike said if he goes, that he (Mike) will cry like a baby. But yet he said that how can we hold onto him for our own self gratification & that would not be in the best interest of Takota.  I guess our biggest concern here is that Takota has already been pitched from pillar to post, and that this will be just another pitching for him. Or will it even phase him at all, will he just think he is finally going home? I already KNOW that Mike & I will both cry (that may sound crazy but if you met Takota you would see what we see in him). And we do not even question the fact of him being takin EXTREEM good care of, that is not even in the equasion here, as he will be in the best of hands. My son & his wife make VERY good money! So anything that Takota would ever need he would DEFINATELY have & some! Any vet bill would not be an issue to them. They are like us, they have their dog at the vets office if he sniffles. And as far as him being loved he could not be loved any greater, they LOVE animals............PERIOD! So any quick input into this situation would be great and as I said especially from those of you who have dealt with rescue pugs, what would be in the BEST interest for Takota here? Thank you Pugslife family. You all are great!

Ok What I have noticed in the past with rescue pugs is that they are very adaptable.  As long as they are being loved and cared for they are happy.  They seem to go with the flow.  Obviously Takota would be fine with your son and family but have they introduced him to Odie yet?  Sometimes two males do not mix.  Depends on their temperament.  Also it's up to you and Mike if you want to part with him.  You would of course still be in touch with him but it's not the same.  That's just so interesting that Takota is so enamored with your  Hey if you let him go I got another one for you....Bosco!!!!!  Something to think about.  If you do let son take Takota then that leaves the door open for another pug to be rescued by you.  Oh I don;t know what I would do I'm just throwing ideas out there.  But I do know Takota will be fine either way.  Read this and come back to me on IM chat.

Why not,it is your son and if the fit isnt right you can have him back.How long have you had him? And how long has your son been around him?And how long was he in the shelter? Or was it from a home i cant remember.He should be fine though..:)
