I am purebred.
Hi, my name is Buford. My new foster mom calls me Benny. I was picked up by animal control in Tallahassee and my first foster mom rescued me and took me home. I had a severe case of dermatitis and an open sore on my back. She took very good care of me and gave me baths. The sore went away after a couple of weeks and I started to feel better. Recently I moved to the Tampa Bay area because the vet says I have heartworms and the treatment is more affordable here. It will take about three months for my initial treatment and then the vet will decide the next step to take. Since I saw the vet in Tampa, I am also getting antibiotics and more baths for my dermatitis. I have limited vision because my dry eyes had gone untreated. I will need drops in both eyes for the rest of my life and I am learning to sit still while they are put in.
My foster mom thinks I was left outside for most of my life. She says that’s very bad for pugs and could be the reason I have heartworms. I am not housebroken but I’m working hard to be better about taking my business outside. Sometimes I forget but my foster mom hasn’t given up on me yet. She says it will take patience and time. Maybe by the time I am done with my heartworm treatment, I will have learned what I need to do outside. I get along with other dogs and don’t ever fight or show any sign of aggression. I haven’t learned to take turns when getting treats so it’s a good thing the other dogs are tolerant of me because I try to grab their treats also. I am crate trained. I love to play with toys, give kisses and be near humans. My tail wags even when I am eating and drinking water. I have lots of energy but I am also a laid back kind of a guy. I am happy to curl up beside you on the couch or on the floor by your feet. I love, love, love to eat and get treats. If you think I would be a perfect match for you, please fill out the adoption papers today!
