PUG OF THE MOMENT
|Beignet||PH ID: #909|
|Beignet is a 5 year old fawn male. Beignet (or Bennie as we call him) has some learning and retention issues. He has some residual neurological damage from a stroke or injury. This makes him require a special owner who can provide and reinforce structure and routine. He's active, playful, loves toys, walks, and is also cuddly. BUT, if you have other dogs (which he does like), you have to be prepared to play referee since they are not as tolerant of his special needs as humans are. He forgets, has poor boundaries, and doesn't understand why he's getting growled at, making fights likely if a strong owner doesn't intervene. You also have to be vigilant, since he will eat toys whole, and has the surgical scars to prove it. Crating, discipline and routine are your best friends when dealing with him. I love our special needs Bennie, but have spent many hours with his parents in previous homes helping them deal with his issues of poor memory, short attention span, etc. He is doing very well in his current foster home, so we believe the right forever home for him is out there.|

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
