Fendi has very sensitive allergies and had a set-back after her dental surgery due to a severe reaction to the topical medicine used during the surgery. It's taken some time to pinpoint what was causing the reaction but we're certain we now know. The same medication was, unfortunately, in the shampoo that we were using to help her skin which made it worse. Her skin is beginning to heal with gentle, oatmeal baths and she's taking some medication to help speed the healing. Through it all, Fendi has remained full of happiness and enthusiasm for life and kisses and snuggles from her foster humans.
Fendi's dental surgery to remove a couple of retained baby teeth and follow up appointment went well.
We're really enjoying watching Fendi's personality blossom. She has a lot of puppy in her still - and a lot of energy. Fendi is quite athletic for a pug and will leap from high places without hesitation. She can go from 0 to 100 in the blink of an eye. She loves running, playing tug-of-war, chasing birds and squirrels, kids, and cuddling in our arms. She loves to make us laugh and be loved.
Fendi has settled in beautifully in her foster home and with the resident grumble. Her diet was changed and the constant itching stopped, her fur is growing back in shiny and soft. She's very quick to learn and has picked up the daily routine and some words like sit and paw. Fendi is a very active and vocal/expressive girl. She loves to run, and play, not so much a typical couch pug, but also needs regular snuggle and kiss time on our laps. Fendi will be soon be seeing a behaviorist on how best to deal with her social skills (occasionally lunging at cars on walks). She loves people and children and is generally just a happy girl when she's with her people.
Fendi has had all of her vaccinations now and is awaiting dental surgery at the end of this month.
Meet Fendi, a 2 1/2 year old fawn pug beauty who was surrendered to us this week because she can no longer breed as a result of a C-section spay at her second litter whelping a few weeks ago. She is full of personality and smart as a whip so should pick up leash training and other boundary issues quite quickly. She has already figured out that the backyard grass is for pottying and is learning a few commands. A velcro pug, she loves human affection and sleeping close in Big Bed. She has been shedding quite a lot, perhaps due to all her recent stress or because of a change of diet for a few weeks before intake. She will be going to the vet in a few days for a full checkup.
