Welcome Pumba! He's a 6 year old fawn male who was surrendered to Pugalug about 3 weeks ago. He is the sweetest little pug in the world and incredibly easy-going. To expedite his intake into foster care, Pumba stayed at a temporary foster home for a couple of weeks while his permanent foster family was away on vacation. He settled in quite quickly to that initial foster home and has had no problem joining his permanent foster family now that they've returned. His favourite spots are either on the couch or in a bed - either his foster mom's or foster sister's will do! Pumba is perfect on leash and loves going for walks!
Healthwise, Pumba came into Pugalug with some pretty serious allergies, although the cause is still unknown. Upon entering foster care, he was gradually switched over to Rayne Kangaroo diet and has done well with that in a digestive sense. Recently, Pumba had his first vet visit and loved it! He figured everyone was there to love on him and wasn't bothered in the slightest by any poking or prodding. The vet recommended that we start off by trying two weeks of Clavamox and Venectyl P with regular baths using a new medicated shampoo. If there are no significant changes at the two week recheck appointment, then Pumba will be referred to a dermatologist for more specialized treatments. Blood work will be completed at the follow-up appointment as well.
Hopefully it won't take too long for Pumba to find some relief from his awful allergies. Thankfully, he takes it all in stride. He is an absolute love of a dog and a perfect little joy to have around!
