Bruce Banner – Adopted


Hello, my fellow pug lovers! My name is Bruce Banner and I was named that because I am truly a superhero.

I came from a really sad, heartbreaking situation. I was found in an abandoned boarded up home during Hurricane Irma. The people who found me said that I was covered in feces and fleas…and just in really awful shape. It was apparent that I went through the hurricane alone and, miraculously, I survived despite not having food for some time. I am so grateful that a wonderful soul took me in and contacted Pug Rescue of Florida immediately. I went to the vet and, thankfully, I was in pretty good shape other than being skinny and itchy from the fleas. It has been a few weeks now and I’ve managed to put on a few pounds and I recently had a dental. I had 9 teeth removed and, wow, I am feeling soooo much better after that! I am currently up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. I’m a low energy pup in that I love to snuggle and sleep. I get around great and have a bit of arthritis but it doesn’t slow me down. I absolutely love other dogs and occasionally will play with my foster brothers and play tug with toys. I’m not a kisser at all but I am sooooooo affectionate in that I will follow you around the house and burrow in you when I can.

I’m looking for a really special family that can love me and give me a wonderful life where I don’t have to worry about being abandoned again.

The picture of me with my foster mom is from right after she picked me up—I didn’t know her but I was so happy to hug her!


If you are my fur-ever-ever family, please fill an out an application for me today – the holidays are coming, and I went to get settled in so Santa knows where to find me.
