I was named Bethany after the sweetest young 'tween. I've turned out to be just that. My age is estimated at over 10, but my foster Mom thinks I get around much better than a senior citizen. I do not hear sounds unless they are loud, but I am so alert I know what is going on around me.
I have been with my 3 new foster sisters now for about 10 days and there have been no behavior issues. The cat also likes me and I like him, but he thinks he's a Pug as well. I see rather well, but not perfectly.
I will have to have drops in my eyes for the rest of my life. I really don't mind when they are put in. I stand very still and never fuss. Sometimes when I bark no sound comes out and then when it does I sound like a goose honking. If I receive the attention I want, I stop. I am happy sleeping on a bathmat at the foot of your bed. I have very good potty manners.
I don't tell you when I want to go out, but I wait until you remember. In typical Pug fashion, I do not like the rain or the cold. My Mom has to encourage me to go outside, but I do better now after following my Pug sisters.
My vet says my coat will be pretty when my immune system improves. I'm working on it and you can see how pretty I am by looking at my wonderful portraits.
Please contact Pug Rescue and take the time to get to know me. I will give you all my love and attention. I am so sweet you will fall in love with me.
UPDATE FROM FOSTER MOM:
Bethany is a sweet girl who has been a part of our family for the last 7 months. When I picked her up from the Rogers Shelter, she had a growth on the back of one of her legs. The vet did such an exceptional job removing it, I can't tell where it was. No biopsy was done, but I was told she was sure it was malignant. The vet said she thought she got it all and there have been no recurances.
We have discovered Bethany is completely deaf. She doesn't seem to hear anything at all. If she can't see me she panics and will run away trying to find me. It does no good to call her as she won't hear. She must always be leashed when she is not confined. On the upside, storms do not bother her, but she may feel some vibrations.
She is no longer content to sleep on the bathmat. She does sleep on the bed. Once she falls asleep she lays very still and doesn't stir until I do. The alpha here at our house is blind, so there is very little controversy between the two of them.
However, because she can't hear, I would be cautious with her and an alpha who is demanding. She will not be able to know there is a problem. She does demand attention from me, but it is not too often. She does like to be with her people, but she is not intrusive. She gets along with our dogs here, but they are all female and are not aggressive at all.
Bethany does have some skin issues that maybe seasonal allergies. She currently is taking medication and it is improving. The vet said some small little pimple-like sores appear and then cause bacterial infections. She does not scratch them.
She is probably not the 10 years old the vet estimated, as she is very agile and moves very well. She is quite a runner. She still continues to make the honking noises. She only does that when she wants attention, and that is not often. It's actually kinda cute.
My best advice for Bethany would be to make sure she is always secure. She does like being close to you and will panic if she can't see you.
Adoption fee will be waived for the right family.
