Clark - posted 06/30/2012

From Heidi of Portland, OR

When my husband and I started fostering with Pacific Pug Rescue a few years ago, I knew we would eventually adopt a pug. Fast forward a few months and the second I laid eyes on "Foster #4" at the vet's office, I knew he was the one. When Clark came to us, he had been used as a breeder and his care and well-being had been neglected for years. He was very thin, covered in fleas, and anxious in a lot of new situations. 2 1/2 years later, he still struggles with his anxiety issues, but we couldn't love him any more than we do. To us, he's perfect. I love this photo of Clark and my husband, Kevin, at the Oregon coast because Clark looks so confident and happy in it - just what he always deserved!
