Get Some Pug Love With Norbert!

Norbert is a 10 to 12 year old, 22 pound pug boy, who loves to nap and eat snacks. He’s down to watch tv and chill with you anytime, anywhere. He snorts a lot and demands belly rubs. He also enjoys sitting in the sun outside and very short walks.

Norbert is house and crate trained and good with small dogs and cats. He was reactive to a larger dog once, so a meet and greet is required.

He is healthy for a pug his age, and will soon be getting a dental and neuter, where he is likely to lose most of his teeth. He eats kibble that is soaked in warm water with a bit of canned food.

He does have myelopathy that currently impairs his gait a bit, but he gets around just fine. He just can’t jump up on furniture and needs a hand if you allow it. He would probably do best in a home without a ton of stairs, though he can currently maneuver them without issue. 

Myelopathy means that Norbert will eventually lose control of his rear end, but it's anyone’s guess when that will be. The best thing to treat the myelopathy, is to continue to use the legs. He just needs to keep living like a normal dog.

Norbert is looking for a special adopter who will make sure he will have a great quality of life for whatever time he’s got left. In return, Norbert will improve their quality of life with his pug love.

Our adoption fee is $125.00 (cash or credit card)

This sweetheart will be at the Livonia PetSmart on SOME Saturdays from 11-3. Come up and meet this cutie after emailing to check if he'll be there at
