Pug of the Month August 2018

Pug Rescue of Florida - Hercules

Hi rescue friends, My name is Hercules and I’m a young little pug mix looking for a family to help me start a new chapter in my life.

I’m a young guy at about 2 yrs old and my friends at Pug Rescue of Florida think that I’m probably a JUG which is a Jack Russell & Pug mix. I know what you are probably thinking…with that combination I’m probably full of energy and maybe even a little stubborn.  Actually, that is not the case at all! My short life has been full of challenges and I really need someone very special who will be very patient and loving with me. I’m really pretty shy and nervous, especially when I first meet new people. I tend to make friends with ladies fairly quickly but it takes me a while to feel comfortable around men. I don’t seem to understand little kids, and all of their quick movements either, so even they scare me.

My foster mom says that I’m very sweet, she calls me a “shadow” pug because I don’t want to be very far from her side. She thinks a nice quiet household with someone who works from home or isn’t gone much would be ideal. Once I feel comfortable with you all I want to do is cuddle and be your best companion. I like the idea of being an only dog — I get nervous around other animals.

I am a bit of an athlete because I love to go on walks and playing in the yard is a really fun treat. I’ve also been told that I’m super smart and a very quick learner.

I’m about 21 pounds, up to date on my vaccines, neutered, and heartworm negative. I’m all ready to find my forever family — can you help me find someone who needs me as much as I need them?

As the August 2018 Pug of the Month my adoption fee is waived so my new family can spend that money to plan some new adventures for us!

Complete an adoption application here. If you love pugs but can’t adopt, please send a donation to help pay medical bills for all of the foster pugs. They sure could use it!
