Iam Groot – Adopted


Hello my fellow pug lovers! My name is Iam Groot and I was named after the adorable character in Guardians of the Galaxy because I am just a total lovebug and I really am the star of the show where ever I go. In fact, I am truly a “bug” in that I am a mix between a Pug and a Boston Terrier. I am only 13 weeks old and I am neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. I’m not entirely potty trained, of course, but I am learning very quickly that my foster parents provide me with a treat when I go outside. I was terrified when I came into my new foster family but it took just a few minutes and a slow introduction and, then, I was in love with everyone. I absolutely love to play fetch and play with toys! I am fabulous with other dogs and I think that I would be okay around older children, too. I’m a little funny about being picked up and I do tend to run away when someone tries. I would do best with a family who is familiar with puppies and has a fenced in yard because I can be a bit of an escape artist. I’m so excited to go outside that I just dart out the door. Thankfully, my current foster family has an escape proof yard so that is not an issue. I am getting neutered in a few days so my forever family may have to take me to the vet to get my stitches out and needs to follow the vaccination schedule for my boosters. All in all, I have such a fabulous, loving personality and I would make a great addition to a family who is ready for a true lovepug!!!

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).

  •  No only dog homes.  Another small dog playmate that can put up with a puppy is needed, since they are very playful and energetic.
  •  No big dogs please, they could easily hurt a puppy by mistake.
  •  A fenced in yard and no busy intersections nearby.
  •  No children under the age of 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.
  •  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 super awesome pugs we happily rescue every year, year in year out.

If you are interested in adopting for me, you can fill out an application today. 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!
