This sweet gentleman is a Pug Mix who comes to us from the Roanoke, Va area. He was surrendered to a humane society after living his whole life with his family. His reason for surrender?...They were having a baby and didn't want a dog anymore. This is such a sad story, but one we see far too often in rescue. Bubba is a wonderful, adorable, well mannered sweet 8-9 year old boy, who LOVES children, adults, and other dogs and even likes cats!!!. He lived with a cat in his former home, and considered the cat his buddy....they even slept together!!
Bubba was very nervous at the shelter, but they let him hang out in their office, and he quickly became a staff favorite. Our wonderful MMR volunteer in the Roanoke, Va area made sure that this boy was safe and fostered him until he was transported to the Maryland area for fostering and medical care. A very special thanks goes to a new MMR adopter, who drove Bubba from Roanoke to this area when she picked up her own new fur baby!!
Bubba has received a dental and been brought up to date on his vaccines. He is also neutered and heart worm negative. He is on a monthly preventative and is doing great with all the recent changes in his life. Bubba did have a rear leg issue which was X-rayed and diagnosed while he was under anesthesia for his dental. The leg is not broken, but it appears he has an injured ligament. The vets believe a brace will help this injury heal, and so he is currently wearing one. MMR is prepared to do all we can to give him full use of this leg. Bubba doesn't seem to be bothered by this issue, although he does not like to put weight on it when it is not in a brace. It doesn't slow this little guy down, and we are hopeful it will heal without surgical intervention. Stay tuned for updates.......we should know by the end of October. 2016 if the brace is working or if surgery is needed.
Bubba is ready for adoption, even with he brace on his leg. He wants nothing more than to have his own family again. Everyone......volunteers, shelter staff, and veterinarian have fallen in love with Bubba.....there is something very special about him. We are looking for a home with another small, friendly dog or even a few cats for Bubbato hang with in the new home. Older children would be great, and he would love to have his own boy or girl to love....something his former family would not give him the chance to do. He is o.k. with the leash, but needs a little training in that area. His walks a little slower and shorter while his leg heals, but he loves to wander around in fenced yard of his foster home. He, of course, is never left unattended while outside, and his new family should expect to do the same.He appears to be house trained, although he did have a few accidents until he learned the new schedule of his foster home. He does not appear to have any behavior issues and is just a great, all around dog. Don't let the leg issue keep you from applying to adopt this gem......it is fixable, and MMR will make sure it is as good as it can be for Bubba. ***Approved adopters will be able to speak to his attending vet if they would like to ask any questions regarding his leg.
