Clementine – Adopted

Clementine faux pug

My name is Clementine and I am a beautiful chug who is only 7 weeks old but already charming everyone that I meet! I was being given away online and, thank goodness that a volunteer from Pug Rescue of Florida came and got me. I was covered in so many fleas and I was very lethargic because I wasn’t being fed enough. Within a few days of a flea bath and good food/formula, my true colors came out and my foster family would describe me as one of the best puppies they have ever had. I am really good about going potty outside but I’m not entirely potty trained, of course. I am so excited to see my family, even if it is just after me taking a nap, and I will run at them with full force and my ears will flop and my entire butt will shake. I am only 3lbs so I can fit in the palms of your hands. For that reason, it’s really important that my forever family has no big dogs because I could get hurt very easily. I will be getting my first set of vaccinations in about a week so it is also important that my family keep up with that schedule and that I am spayed in the future when I am big enough. I’m such a cutie pie in that I’m a sucker for soft blankets and I love to play with the other dogs. Even though I am only 3lbs, I am the queen of the house, of course. If you are ready to bring a portable queen to your family, please fill out an application for me!

A note about my future forever family…

Pug Puppies: We rarely have surrendered pug puppies. If a puppy does become available, all applications will be reviewed and the puppy will go to the home PROoF feels is best to take on such a handful. Thank you for understanding.

All of Pug Rescue of Florida’s puppies MUST go to a home with all of the following (no exceptions):

  1. No only dog homes.  Another small dog playmate that can put up with a puppy is needed, since they are very playful and energetic.
  2. No big dogs please, they could easily hurt a puppy by mistake.
  3. A fenced in yard and no busy intersections nearby.
  4. No children under the age of 5.
  5. The forever family must not be gone long hours (not more than 4 at a time) as a puppy does need to be monitored, nurtured and potty trained.
  6. Either a history with puppies or a great track record with a current veterinarian. Puppies are young but can be more prone to accidents due to their active nature.

If a puppy is adopted before it is old enough to be neutered or spayed, adopter will be required to neuter/spay and provide evidence of neuter/spay to Pug Rescue of Florida.…and for anyone that doesn’t know how rescues work, please know that in addition to paying for the puppy’s medical expenses, ALL adoption fees helps Pug Rescue of Florida pay for ONE of the 300 old and/or sick pugs we happily rescue every year, year in year out.

If you are interested in adopting for me, you can fill out an application. Not interested in the additional time investment it takes to train a puppy? Please consider one of our older and already well mannered Pugs that are also looking for a wonderful forever home!
