PUG OF THE MOMENT
|Rico Suave||PH ID: #3259|
|Rico Suave is a fawn male. He is about 2 years old. He was found wandering with no tags or microchip. He is heartworm positive and will begin treatment shortly.|
From Rico's foster: Rico was originally found wandering the streets and was scared, timid, very skinny, and frankly, a little unsure how to be a pug. The first night in our home, he howled and barked all night. We do not think he would be comfortable as an only child since he has a lot of nervous energy. Since then, we've put his crate right next to our other pug's crate, and he's able to go to sleep peacefully and quietly every night. To say that he's made leaps and bounds in his rehabilitation is a an understatement. He is 100% pug now! He even acts like a puppy. He is very clumsy, trips over his feet, walks into things, but we just think it's because he's an excited little goofball. He loves to play and will play with every single toy in the toy box. He is great on a leash and pretty much house trained. We are now getting to the point where he's beginning to really trust us so he can start learning some manners and tricks!

made the PugHearts Group an “open” group, allowing anyone to post on our FB page.
This resulted in some unfortunate posts which upset many people. It also allows
for unauthorized use of images from our Group and opens our members to breaches
of their privacy. We have now changed the status of our group back to “Closed
which once again requires any new members to submit a request to join before they

information to verify you are a genuine requestor. Once you are added you can post
