About Me:

Hi I'm Pugsley! 

I'm a gorgeous floofy young pup who is ready for my forever home! I'm a big cuddler and adore being pet, and my favourite is going on walks and adventures with my friends! I even went to the river this week. It's pretty tiring though, I'm only little and I am learning so much! Everyone says that I am the cutest thing they have ever seen, I think so too and am happy with the attention. I trot around the shelter following the staff closely as they go about their daily chores, I like to think I'm helpful but I'm pretty distracting - JUST LOOK AT ME! I also like to get muddy and run riot in the yard, even if I do need a bath and brush after. Followed by a snack and a nap of course, at your feet preferably. I'm a goofball so will be sure to make you smile every day and be your new best friend.

In return I will need my family to be proactive and understand that these next few months are super important in my life. Early socialization is where I learn about the big wide human world that we have to live in. There is going to be a lot of new things I have yet to experience, I need a home that will observe my body language and go at my pace.

A family that is patient and loving is what I would like the most, I am just a baby after all. I need a home that is committed to me and ready to give me a life with love and adventure for the rest of my years. I'd love to go to puppy school and make new friends, I like all the other doggos I have met at WAG and on my walks and like to be kept company. Positive re-inforcement is the best for me to ensure I am set up well for my future.

Please scroll down and fill out an application form right away if you are ready to take me on. I can't wait start my next big adventure and I'm sure it won't be long till I find my forever home!

 

My perfect match: 

- Able to provide a calm, nurturing environment with people that will pay attention to my body language to understand how I feel
- Is ready for the 10+ year commitment
- Loves fluffy cuddly puppies
- Will continue with basic training - I will need a post-adoption training appointment or Puppy classes with a WAG approved trainer
- Lots of patience!
- Will love me forever no matter what, quirks and all!
- I need a home that is committed to me and ready to give me a life with love and adventure for the rest of my years.
