Just like Bert and Ernie, Skipper and Gilligan, these sweet boys — Blue and Bud are a bonded pair looking for a family who is ready to welcome two newcomers.
Blue (Jug) and Buddy (Pug) lived their lives together until their previous owner became ill and surrendered them to a PA shelter. At ages 10 and 12, these boys are friendly, snuggly seniors who enjoy everyone’s company. They love children, other dogs, adults and are indifferent to cats. Blue enjoys playing with other dogs and will even fetch toys to engage with his favorite human. Bud receives straight A’s in the snuggling department and could easily win the pug cuteness award. He is also one of the most gentle biscuit takers on the planet. Both boys adapted quickly into their foster household with multiple pets and children ages 6 to 9. They are described as some of the “easiest most laid back fosters” their foster mama has ever lived with.
These boys are crate trained and mostly housetrained. They don’t mind wearing belly bands to deter occasional marking and are such quick studies that we feel with consistency they will be expert pottiers in no time. The boys don’t mind sleeping in the same crate, or better yet, in the big person bed at night. The only thing they do separately is eat, because Blue is a known kibble thief. An ideal environment for Blue and Bud would consist of someone home at least part of the day, since they thrive on human attention. They both enjoy short walks in a quiet neighborhood and welcome meeting new friends along the way.
Blue has slight vision impairment due to dry eye for which he takes daily drops. He is a great patient when getting his drops. His vision is better during the day than at night. Bud was treated for Lyme disease upon entering the rescue and is making great strides. Both boys take a daily joint supplement for age related arthritis. They are both neutered, microchipped and up to date with vaccines. Overall, these boys are a happy, active seniors with a zest for life and daily fun. They’ve melted hearts in the rescue with all who crossed their path and deserve to live their golden years as loved family members.
