Herbert – Adopted

Herbert - Pug Rescue of Florida

Hi everyone, I’m Herbert! At least that’s what the wonderful people at Pug Rescue of Florida have been calling me. The truth is, I don’t really remember what my name was before, so if you decide you want to give me a brand new name once you get to know me I would be perfectly happy with that idea!

You see…I was found as a stray and it’s a good thing that Pug Rescue found me because I wouldn’t have lasted long as a sick pug in this Florida heat. My friends at Pug Rescue took me to a very nice vet and got me all checked out.  Turns out I tested positive for those pesky heartworms (it happens more than you might think with stray dogs here in Florida) but my friends at PROOF have a plan to take care of my heartworm treatments. It’s not a very complicated treatment so I can go ahead and get adopted and PROoF will work with my forever family to make sure I get the vet care I need until the heartworms are gone. The really good news is that I’m neutered and have had all of my shots so I would love to find my forever family as soon as possible.

To help you decide if I might be the perfect match for your family let me tell you a little about my amazing personality:

– I’ll be the first to admit that I love to have all the attention all the time. My perfect day includes playing, and then going outside, and then playing with my toys, and then having a snack, and then (you guessed it) playing some more.

– Do you like naps? I do too!  Do you snore? That’s great because I snore too! If you like really snorty pugs then I’m the one for you. My foster family can’t stop laughing at all the crazy noises I make, but I don’t know know what the big deal is, I’m just trying to breathe over here.

– I’m an all around great guy to have around and everyone says I’m very well behaved.  That’s probably because I love everyone and I get along fine with people and dogs.

– People often ask about my potty habits too.  Good news it I’m potty trained and I even go stand by the door when I need to go outside.

Speaking of potty habits…sometimes I feel like being an acrobat… check out my crazy talent in this video:
