Turbo - A Sweet Low-Key "Velcro Pug"
Susan Daffron talks to Cindy Gagnon from Southeast Pug Rescue and Adoption about an 8-year old fawn-colored pug named Turbo. Because Turbo has diabetes, he needs special food and two insulin shots per day. However, Cindy (his foster mom) says that even though some people may be concerned about taking care of a diabetic dog, "it really is not that hard." Turbo just needs to receive his medications on a consistent schedule and you have to pay attention to his appetite. These are things any conscientious dog owner would do with a dog anyway. Turbo is a really easy-going guy with an extremely sweet personality. (Cindy calls him a "velcro pug.
He gets along with kids, cats, and other dogs. In fact, Turbo has been to several fundraising events and sits patiently while kids and people pet and shower him with attention. In his foster home, Turbo has learned all about how to use a dog door and is 100% housetrained. Even though he'd never seen one before, Turbo also has learned that his crate is a really great bed and he loves snoozing in there. Of course, he also likes curling up with his foster Dad in a recliner chair too. If you have a little space in your heart (and maybe your recliner chair) and want to share your life with a special pug, Turbo will make a great addition to your family.
