Meet SEPR Pugsley…a big ‘ol ball of fun!
Pugsley had an owner at one point, who loved him and made sure he was well cared for, with records dating back to his birth. Unfortunately life had other plans, leaving Pugsley as a squatty senior gentleman finding himself down on his luck. Fast-forward to 2023, animal control was notified about a dog that was suffering from heat stroke, and that’s how Pugsley entered the shelter system. Pugsley was quickly picked up and received medical treatment, and made a 100% recovery. He waited and waited for SEPR to have an opening in our foster program, and his prayers were finally answered in October.
Pugsley is settling in well to life outside the shelter. He of course had an in-depth senior veterinary visit, where it was discovered that he had several teeth that needed to be removed as well as significant arthritis in his back legs. He underwent dental surgery to remove the bad teeth, and was started on supplements for his joints.
Now that he is healed, he is definitely enjoying the perks of life in a foster home. Chewing on bones and playing with his toys are on the top of his list of favorite things, right up there with being close to his person no matter if that’s lounging on the couch watching TV or doing yard work.
Pugsley has a big personality to go along with his adorable vertically challenged looks. His big personality can be a little off putting to some of the more chill canines so he is working on excitement control, boundaries, and basic commands. He is a quick learner though, mastering the gentle leader and using it to help himself remember to take things slowly instead of bowling through things like the bowling ball he is.
Pugsley has no were to go but up. As he settles in we will share updates, but we are sure this cheeky old man won’t stick around long…someone will snatch him up.
