10 year old Max is a gorgeous and nearly perfect pug!  He is a 22 pound fawn boy but has black areas throughout his coat which makes him even more handsome!  Max’s owner passed away and sadly he had not had a lot of vet care.  He had a very painful mouth but that is all fixed up now.  Frequent untreated ear infections have left Max deaf but he still has his sight and he is very mobile and does not seem to have any arthritis!  He is a very healthy guy now!

Like most pugs Max LOVES his person.  He is the type of pug that will follow you everywhere…if you get up he is right there!  He had trouble eating when he first came to rescue, but since getting his teeth fixed, he has become the normal food obsessed pug and he can demand food by doing a silent snapping movement with his mouth which is so adorable!

Max is used to being an only dog, but in his foster home he has lived just fine with dogs and cats,  although he has no interest in them at all..he is all about the people!  Max loves going for walks, so he is looking for a home that can keep him active, although couch time is awesome too!

Max’s potty training had not been enforced in his prior home, so his rescuers have been working with him to get back on track.  He is doing much better than when he first arrived.  He is nearly dialed in with this but still will mark occasionally…especially if you leave him alone for long periods.  He is great at wearing a belly band and continues to improve every day!

Max is just now starting to come out of his shell since he is finally feeling better. His fosters can tell there is a lot of personality in there, so they are sure his adopters will continue to see him blossom!

Max is posted for Pacific Pug Rescue located in Portland, Oregon.  If you are interested in learning more you can email adoptions@pacificpugrescue.org
