“Hi, my name is Ryan and as you can see , I do not look like the usual pug! I have a beautiful, soft brindle coat and I barely shed. I am nicely proportioned, however, my tail is a little wonky. That being said, I have no idea what else I am besides a pug! If you can figure it out, please let me know! I am a girl but some people get confused because of my name!

When I meet people for the first time or go somewhere new I get very scared and shake. It takes me a while to trust someone so I would probably be best in a home that is quiet that does not have a lot of new people coming and going all the time. No one knows for sure how old I am but they are guessing I may be around 12 yrs old. I am completely house trained! I am very energetic and I love to go for walks.  Since I am older, I do not walk as far as I used to and because of the pug in me, I can overheat, but basically, I want to go wherever you go.

I like my naps and I have my own bed, but I do like sleeping on the bed with foster mom also. When I wake up, I love to give you kisses and have my belly rubbed! I like to be near you and I just love to be scratched, petted, or a massage is wonderful! If you scratch me behind my ears, you will definitely get some kisses!

I love meal time! I had surgery and my teeth are all better now so I can eat kibble and maybe a little spoon of canned food. I get a treat in the afternoon, however, I am watching my figure and need to lose a couple more pounds.

Because of the pandemic I have not been around a lot of people and it took some time for me to get to know and trust my foster mom, however, she says I am really sweet, very lovable and extremely easy to have around. She thinks I will make a wonderful companion. I like my foster dog buddy, Lulu, however, I would not mind having you all to myself. I have a real hankering for attention and will happily love you back!”
