Pug

As his namesake suggests, Shelby is a as sweet as Southern Iced Tea! This 5 year old gentleman Pug is full of nothing but joy and happiness. He is truly one of the happiest Pugs we have ever encountered! He gleefully wags his tail when meeting new dogs and very much wants to play. He loves to play with stuffed toys and is a very gentle boy. Whenever his foster Mom bends down to rub his broad chest, he offers her a sweet kiss on the nose. Several months prior to being surrendered to TBIN, Shelby jumped off of a sofa and injured his back. Some anti-inflammatories were given and he recovered quickly but has a sway and swagger to his gait - we think it just makes him even more endearing. This does not slow him down as he walks and even runs. Occasionally he will have an accident here and there in the house as he has slightly less feeling as a result of the injury but, this is not a constant issue and is very easily managed. When Shelby was surrendered, he was dangerously obese. Thankfully, with diet and exercise, the weight has come off and Shelby is feeling like a brand new Pug! He's now at his ideal weight and weighs around 22 pounds. He was raised around children and we feel he would be okay with older, respectful kiddos (7 and up). Shelby likes hanging out in a bed with another Pug or two so a home with a gentle, similarly sized dog would be nice but, we think he would be okay as an 'only', provided there was a human who was home at least part-time (he probably would not be happy being left all day). While shelby can go up a set of stairs if hands are placed on him to steady him, he should ideally be carried so, a home with fewer stairs or an adopter who doesn't mind carrying him would be best. A fenced yard is preferred. He is a fabulous little Pug and we know that whomever is fortunate enough to share their life with him will be rewarded with tons of Pug kisses and love. Shelby is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, Heartworm negative, has been dewormed, has had a full senior profile (blood work and urinalysis), and is microchipped. If you feel that you have room in your heart and home for Shelby, please complete an Adoption Application: http://www.toybreedsinneed.org/adopt-1.html
