PUG OF THE MOMENT
|Kip||PH ID: #4350|
|Kip is a fawn male. He is 8-9 years old. He is neutered, microchipped and current on his vaccinations. He is heartworm positive and will begin treatment shortly. He does has dry eye and some visual impairment.|
From Kip (with some help from his foster): Kip says, "don't judge me because I'm a mama's boy! I'm visually challenged, but not blind. My foster mom believes that I see shapes, but no detail. Because of my dry eye, I have to have daily eye drops, but I don’t mind and I’m super patient when you do it. I learned the doggie door like almost immediately and mom says that I'm fully potty trained. I do my 'business' outside - I'm such a big boy! I'm even a little shy about it - that's a private thing - right? I'm sweet as can be and even a little timid. I love to be close to my mom (she makes me feel soooo good and safe!) and I love all of the other dogs in the house. I'm not looking forward to heartworm treatment in a few months, but I know that once that's over, I'm going to find my forever home - like immediately. After all, who can resist these big, beautiful brown eyes and gorgeous Pug face?”
p.s. my foster mom says, I have the cutest little bark and I love to “talk” to you with sweet little whimpers and whines. Doesn’t that just make you want to hug me?
From foster mom: First, take a good look, Kip is gorgeous! If he were human, he'd be a short, stocky football player. Look at those beautiful brown eyes. I've fostered Kip since early March. He is super low maintenance other than an eye drop a day in each eye and he is fully potty trained. We practiced the doggie door a few times and that was it: he was in and out on his own. He's a little timid and loves to be near you.
IMPORTANT FACEBOOK GROUP CHANGES

has maintained a
Group page on Facebook
for the past several years. We encourage
past adopters, potential adopters, fosters and all Pug lovers to join us! We love
to post and share photos, heartwarming stories and advice on Pugs.
We have always required that potential FB PugHearts Group members submit a request
to join our group in an effort to control SPAM and unauthorized posts. Group posts
were visible to the public, but only approved group members could post comments
However, facebook has recently made some changes to their terms of service which
made the PugHearts Group an “open” group, allowing anyone to post on our FB page.
This resulted in some unfortunate posts which upset many people. It also allows
for unauthorized use of images from our Group and opens our members to breaches
of their privacy. We have now changed the status of our group back to “Closed
which once again requires any new members to submit a request to join before they

information to verify you are a genuine requestor. Once you are added you can post
