This sweetie is 11yr old Tia-Petunia. It is her second stay with Pug Rescue of FL. She was adopted several years ago, but her mom came upon hard times, and had to leave Tia alone for long periods of time, so she thought the best thing was to give her back to the people that could properly take care of her.
Her favorite thing is snuggling next to her human, but because she has limited vision from cataracts she loves a reassuring pet every once in a while…just to make sure you are still there.
Although she is great with kids, she would probably do best with an older family that is home a lot. She is house broken, but needs to go out every few hours and may have an occasional accident if she is left alone too long. She hasn’t any interest in playing with toys, but that is probably because she can’t see them.
Tia does have some health issues. She is diabetic and receives two (2) insulin injections each day, and is on prescription food. Her insulin is a veterinarian formula which is about $50/month. Tia’s foster parents have done very well maintaining her blood sugar levels over the last few months. She cannot hear and has very limited vision, but she is very smart and finds her way around the house very well. At dinnertime she lays in the kitchen patiently waiting for her dinner. Her back legs are weak, so she can only go on very, very short walks.
Tia loves to sleep on the bed with her humans at night…snuggle, snuggle, snuggle. She is really a good dog and has a lot of love to give.
Tia Petunia is up-to-date on her vaccinations, is spayed, has recently had a dental, and a recent glucose curve. Now, she just wants a forever family to love!
