It's Puggle Season

Okay, I'm not exactly sure Puggle Season is a real thing... but somehow I've gone four years without ever fostering a Puggle, to suddenly fostering two within the same month.  Where are all these Puggles coming from?  Puggles are a designer breed mix of a Pug and a Beagle.  The ones I have met all have the spirit of a Pug plus the affectionate nature of a Beagle plus the self-confidence of a world-class athlete.  In other words, these dogs may soon be taking over the world.

My latest Puggle is named Miley.  She's four years old, and she's almost as food motivated as Ziggy.  This means she will spend hours searching the house looking for any stray kibble.  It keeps her out of trouble, so I've started hiding kibble all around the house in order to give her something to do.

Miley had a medical condition known as 'cherry eye' so she had to have eye surgery.  This means she has to wear the cone of shame for seven days.

However I recently caught her doing some amazing world-class athletic stretching maneuvers that allowed her to use her back leg to reach around the cone and still scratch at her eye.  Fortunately her eye seems to be healing well in spite of this unauthorized behavior, so she should be ready for adoption by this weekend.  And hopefully there's someone out there who won't be able to resist this face.

OH MY DOG, I love her. She is so darn cute and sweet - and that underbite?! I'm a sucker for that Puggle underbite. What a sweet pea. Where are all these little rescue puggles coming from?! It's almost impossible to find on in our area!

Hi Kolchak Puggle! We had two puggles that were owner turn-ins due to allergies - Miley is one of those. And Morgan, the other puggle I recently fostered, was turned into an area shelter. Puggles are not all that uncommon around here so we see them in rescue pretty often.

She has such a sweet face! I hope she gets adopted soon.

Love, Cupcake

Wow she is pretty talented to maneuver around the cone! Hoping Miley finds her forever home soon.

It takes some impressive maneuvering to get around the cone of shame! I hope her forever home finds her soon!

So cute, but so sad about all the give-ups. We are working with a group that's protesting against a pet story breeding and selling dogs irresponsibly. They have all kinds of crazy mixes listed like Beagle-Bulldog, and Teddy Bear?? We're just really upset that they're now breeding and selling pitbulls.

People love puggles, and that can't have anything to do with how cute they are! I hope all your foster dogs find wonderful homes very soon. In the meantime, I know they are very well taken care of.
