Favorite Walk: Anywhere! When are we going for a walk???
Best Tricks: So far she is good at "Sit", "Stay", and "Wait", "Paw", "High Five", "Watch Me" - Learning every day!
Arrival Story: I am fostering little KC until she finds her fur-ever home through the Mid Atlantic Pug Rescue.
Bio: Meet KC! She is part Pug and part Chihuahua and is being fostered through Mid Atlantic Pug Rescue. Her favorite things are snuggling and cuddling, soft fleece blankets (she jumps around when she sees a new one from the store), playing with her soft squeaky toys (she takes such good care of them), naptime and bedtime, treats! treats! treats!, and did I mention snuggling? MAPR found KC alone in a shelter and took her in to be fostered. Something in her past made her very afraid of strangers and she will bark when she is approached by someone (person or dog) who she doesn't know. KC loves learning new things and is very eager to please. She is responding very well to training and has learned lots of fun tricks, too! She can easily sit, give paw, lie down, twirl, wait, and so much more. KC is on a journey and we know by her loving nature that she will one day build up the courage we all want her to have.
Thinking of Adopting a Pug?: If you are interested in learning more about KC, please email me with any questions! If you would like to adopt from Mid Atlantic Pug Rescue, I suggest you fill out an application by going to our website at www.midatlanticpugrescue.org. Anyone who adopts from us must fill out the application. The process takes about 3 weeks, so even if you don't see a dog on our website that you are interested in right now, you should go ahead and get approved so if you do see one you will be ready to adopt.
Well I always knew I was cute - but so cute to be in a calendar? Woof! My fur-ful readers, can you believe I was selected to be Miss October for the Mid Atlantic Pug Rescue 2014 Calendar? Yea, I can believe it. Who can resist my fuzzy face?
October 2014 will be the best month ever!
When I first heard I celebrated by zoom zoom zooooooming around the house and then plopping down into a ceremonious FLOP. Pug-Style.
I poked my head out the door. I didn't move a muscle. Not one paw. I stretched my nose to sniff the air. It looks wet! These paws aren't meant to be wet! I turned my nose up into the air and huffed. When I tried to turn my little bootie around to go back in, my foster mom said "Uh, uh! You gotta go out, darlin'!"
I looked out again. Okaaaaaaaaay, but I don't wanna get my pawses wet!
I gingerly walked down the stairs. A piece of wet fell on my nose. I shook it off. Another piece fell on my nose. I sneezed and it fell off. Then another...and another..and anoth...HEY! It's snowing!!
I took off runnin'.
I jumped into the snowpiles and sniffed around underneath. Then I made like a bunny and Hopped! Hopped! Hopped! Bounce! My foster mom was giggling and telling me that I looked just like a bunny rabbit.
