Social network for pugs and their people.
As some of you already know we have a new foster pug named Louie. I got a call on Sat. that a foster family about an hour north of us needed to re-foster a 5-6 yr old male pug. They had been fostering Louie for about a month when the wifes sister had a stroke and had to come live with them and bring her two dogs. Which put the total dogs in the home at nine. Way to many especially since many of them were males. The lady from SEPRA (Southeastern Pug Rescue Addoption) told me Louie had been found by a neighbor of the family that had owned him. She said he had always lived outside and that the people just up and moved and left him in the yard. How they could do that I'll never understand. How he survived all those years living outside in Georgia is extrodinary.
The foster dad Allen said he would drive to my house and bring Louie. OK thats easy...for me..lol He said Louie was not a dominant male and in perfect health. His only issue is he likes to mark his territory inside....ugh Well no one can expect perfection. But Louie is close. It is amazing to me how quickly the other chilrens took to him. Like most pugs I've known he settled in like he belonged. They even let him sleep in the bed with us all last night. Now that is beyond unbelievable!!! They don't freak out when I love on and hold him like they have in the past with other fosters. This morning I caught him and Clyde having what we call the perverbial pissing contest...lol Clyde would mark a tree then Louie would go and mark the same tree, then Clyde would mark it again and so on and so forth. It was hilarious to watch. Then everyone came inside and hubby (James) started right in teaching him bad habits. Feeding him and others eggs and grits from the table. I have pictures to incriminate the guilty party.
So thus is the story of Loiue for the time being. I am to take him with me to the Atlanta pugfest next Sat. He will be available for adoption. Have no idea for sure what I'm going to do at this point. He is so handsome and such a good boy he will surely get snapped up fast. I'm just gonna see how this week goes and play it by ear. I was the same way with Sadie but did manage to part with her. But I will say the others did not take to her as well as they have Louie. To many females in the mix I believe. Oh dear, oh me, oh my.
