Hi, my name is Rigby. I'm six years old and I'm a Pug mix. My fur coat is just like a pug, but I'm tall and not so wrinkly. I am a very loving boy. I know lots of commands like sit, lay down, heel, drop it, and out, which lets me know I should back up from the area I'm in. I'm a quick learner and eager to please, which made it really fun when my foster mom taught me to roll over!

I love going for walks, cuddling with my foster parents, and tossing my stuffed squirrel around. I'm pretty mellow and spend most of my day lounging around on my bed. I like to play with other dogs in the park, but it's probably best if I'm an only dog. I need a forever home with a family that doesn't have small children because I can sometimes be a rascal. Young children don't understand that I don't like to be handled roughly and they might not recognize the signs that I'm getting upset.

I would love a companion that I can go to work with or that works from home since I'm used to being with my foster parents all the time because they're allowed to have me at the office. However, I do just fine on days when I have to stay home. When it's time to go to bed, just say kennel and I'll go right in and cuddle up in my blanket.

Make sure you come and see me at an event soon!
