Toby Larone – Adopted

Toby L - Pug Rescue of Florida

Hello, my fellow pug lovers! My name is Toby Larone and I was named after the candy bar and it’s quite fitting because I am just so incredibly sweet!

My owners had to give me up because they worked long hours and didn’t feel that they could give me the attention that I need. It was apparent that I was very loved because I am very kissy and I love to be held. I am supposedly a pug and shihtzu mix and I am 12 weeks old.

I came into the rescue with a urinary tract infection so I am being treated for that. Other than that, I am a happy bouncy baby boy! One of the cutest features about me is how one ear stays up and one ear is down.

I’m incredibly loving and I love to sleep in your neck and my little tail is always wagging. I’m a typical puppy in that I am in potty training boot camp and I like to chew on things. I will be due for another round of boosters and my prior family said that I had an allergic reaction the first time that I got vaccinations. With the rescue, I had an antihistamine shot 30 minutes prior to my vaccinations and I did great with no side effects. I will need to be neutered when I am older but I can be adopted prior to then.

I am doing great with all of my foster pug brothers but I am a puppy so I need to have a playmate that isn’t too big since I am a little guy. All in all, I am a happy boy with a skip to my step and I would be a wonderful addition to a family who is ready for lots of kisses and snuggles!

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.
