Adoptable Dog Of The Week – Foxy

A true lady isn’t afraid to snort. Just ask Foxy, our Adoptable Dog of the Week! This classy 5-year-old Pug resides in Torrington, Connecticut. She’s already spayed, housetrained, and up to date with shots.

Foxy’s Story:

She’s once, twice, three times a lady… a Foxy lady, that is! She knows she’s a cute little heartbreaker, and you’ll know it too as soon as she wiggles her petite little round self into your lap, stares up at you with her big love-bug eyes, and her symphony of snorts and grunts begins. Foxy was surrendered to the rescue when her past owner knew that her long work hours were taking a toll on her. See, Foxy loves her person. In true Pug style, she loves everyone she meets, of course, but she especially adores that one special caregiver and she quickly bonds with them. When her foster mamma comes home, it’s wiggles, snorts, and kisses all around. It’s also lots of snuggles. In Foxy’s mind, there is no such thing as too much cuddle time. There’s also no such thing as too many naps (a lady needs her beauty sleep!), burrowing under blankets, car rides, walks outside and rolls in the grass. A lady never reveals her secrets, but we’ve been told that Ms. Foxy Lady is about five years old and 19 pounds and, while she has lived well with other dogs, like the true lady she is, she would love to be your center of attention. Foxy is housebroken, crate trained, spayed, heartworm negative, and up to date on vaccinations.
