Posted Breed: Pug / Toy Terrier (short coat). Little Dog, Big Heart Hi everyone, my name is Benny. Paws 4 You rescued me from Miami-Dade Animal Services and told me I would get adopted right away because I'm little. But I didn't. And I don't know why. Maybe you can help me. I just want to let you know, that I am a sweet little guy looking for a home. Sometimes people that don't know me might think I am a big meany-pants just because I bark at them through my cage. But really I just don't like living my life in a cage! All I want is for someone to scratch my good spots and take me for walks. My volunteer friends always tell me that it looks like I'm smiling when I'm walking. That's because it makes me so happy! But really what I want more than anything is a mommy or a daddy. Someone to take care of me and make me feel safe. For such a little guy, I've got a whole lot of love to give. And I'd love to share it with YOU.

Pug

A.K.A. : Chinese pug, Dutch bulldog, Dutch mastiff, Mini mastiff, Mops, Carlin
Overview: The Pug is one of the oldest breeds of dogs and has flourished since before 400 BC. China is the earliest known source for Pugs, where they were pets of the Buddhist monasteries in Tibet. The Pug is a family favorite. Full of confidence and always eager to please, this dog makes a great playmate for children and a loyal addition to the family.
Breed Group: Toy
Weight (lbs): 14-18
Height (in): 13-14
Colors: Silver, apricot-fawn, or black, with black muzzle or mask, ears, cheek moles, and trace down back.
Coat: The coat of the Pug breed is short and often double-layered, with a smooth, velvety layer of longer hair on top and a shorter, fluffier layer underneath. This type of coat gives the Pug a reputation as a prolific shedder. Often, faithful Pug owners c
Character: Pugs are social and very easy-going. Known for their intelligence, these dogs are generally calm and reserved.
Temperament: This breed gets along well with children, other dogs, and most household pets. They may become jealous if their owner diverts attention to another animal or child.
Care: The Pug requires occasional grooming with a rubber brush to remove loose hairs. Special lotion can be used on the facial creases to clean and nourish the skin.
Training: Since Pugs are stubborn, independent and smart enough to get bored quickly with repetitive exercises, they are not always easy to train. With their silly, distracting antics added to the mix, training a Pug may seem downright impossible at times. Thankfully, Pugs are exceptionally eager to please their owners, and owners who are consistent and patient can usually train their Pugs to exhibit the desired response to his or her prompts. Heaping praise upon them can also help tremendously, since they thrive on attention from their owners. It is also very important that owners do not inadvertently praise behaviors that, while cute, are not the point of the training exercise. This breed is very fond of food and treats, so using treats as rewards may provide some additional motivation for dogs that are especially strong-willed. Working with Pugs during the first six months of their lives is crucial where training is concerned, as it is much more difficult to change dogs’ behaviors after this point. Some owners express concern about how long it takes to house-train Pugs, but puppies of this breed do not develop the muscle strength to control their bowels and bladder completely until they are around 6 months old. As with other commands and skills, Pugs learn to house-train with plenty of positive reinforcement in the form of treats and praise. This breed requires gentle training, as they are very sensitive to the tone of the trainer's voice.
Activity: Pugs love to romp and play outdoors on a regular basis. Due to their small size and rather lazy nature, Pugs do not require a lot of physical activity to stay healthy and in-shape. A daily walk around the neighborhood or a romp in the backyard should easily meet these dogs’ exercise requirements; in fact, too much exercise can exacerbate Pugs’ tendency to wheeze. While Pugs do love to play, especially with children, it is important to prevent them from jumping off high surfaces like sofas or other furniture, since doing so can cause joint damage. Since they do not require much exercise, Pugs make great companions for those who live in apartments or homes without large backyards, including the elderly.
Country of Origin: China
Health Issue: This breed tends to catch colds easily and is stressed by weather extremes. They may be prone to allergies, breathing problems, and skin problems.
Life Expectancy: 12-15

More About Pug Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: Great Dane / Hound / Mixed (short coat). A very big boy to fill a very big heart Hi, I'm Lenny, and I'm a good boy. I'm also a big boy. Okay, a very big boy. But once I was little and had a home. I was adopted years ago when I was just a puppy. But when I wasn't little anymore, my family didn't want me anymore. I don't understand how anyone could ever do that, but I heard from some of the other dogs here that it happens all the time. Well, it made me sad, and I admit, guarded. I'm wary of people I don't know. I try to protect myself. But since volunteers keep posting videos like this, I guess it's no secret that once I get to know someone, I can't help but love them... unconditionally. I'd give anything to have someone I could love and protect every day for the rest of my life. I also love going for walks and playing with toys! I saw a lot of longtime residents get adopted last year, but I'm starting to worry it might never happen for me. I don't want to live in an animal shelter. I don't want to live with animals. I just want to live with a person who understands me, rubs my belly, and loves me unconditionally, the way I love, forever and ever. Please help me find my person.

      Posted Breed: Beagle (medium coat). Be my cuddly human! Hello humans, my name is Daphne. I wanted to let you all know that I am currently looking for a quiet home with humans around who are especially good at petting. I can be a talkative gal, because I want to let everyone know how much I love them. I even remind them to pet me when they forget – you can watch my video to see what it’s like to be reminded by me . Being good at being petted is my passion in life, and I'm really looking forward to fulfilling that in my near future. Long walks can be a little challenging for me, so I'd mostly prefer to lay by your side and... well... be pet. Although if you took me home, maybe you could help me with my diet, and then maybe I could walk more. I would like to try that. I'm also pretty good at snuggling and would love to find a cuddly human to do that with. Are you good at snuggling? Maybe you could be my cuddly human.
