Make This Puppy Lucky: Honey the Pug Puppy

Oh, Honey! How can you not want to add this adorable Pug to your family?

We dare you not to melt over Honey, an adorable Pug puppy who doesn’t let her special needs slow her down. Fun loving and very playful, this sweet little nugget is looking for an adoring forever family that will be committed to her for life. And did we mention she’s a champion smoocher?

Name: Honey.

Age and sex: 6 months.

Breed: Pug.

Size and weight: Small and 11 pounds.

Coat: Short and fawn with black mask.

Location: S.N.O.R.T. in New Jersey.

Activity level: High.

Likes: Bones, stuffed toys, giving kisses, and her fur siblings.

Dislikes: Nothing!

Training: Honey is house and crate trained, and knows basic commands including sit, give paw, and down. She is working on learning not to poop in her crate at night, which is a common training issue with former puppy mill dogs.

Yard requirements: Although Honey would love a fenced-in yard, it’s not a necessity as long as she receives daily exercise.

Kids: Great with kids, although she can be mouthy when she gets too playful.

Dogs and cats: Great with other dogs. Barks at cats, but is curious about them.

Health issues: Honey is blind in her right eye, an issue that doesn’t seem to faze her whatsoever. She also recently had an umbilical hernia repaired.

Her story: Honey was surrendered by a Pennsylvania puppy mill that couldn’t sell her due to her vision impairment. Leo’s Helping Paws stepped in and got her to S.N.O.R.T.

Her ideal forever home: Honey would do best with someone who either works from home or can come home at lunchtime to play with her. She would love canine siblings, although they must be tolerant of her playful behavior and rowdy antics.

Other details prospective adopters should know: Honey is being fostered in Easton, Pennsylvania.
