ALL ABOUT Dooley – Black Pug For Adoption in Knoxville TN
Dooley is a very nice little Pug. His owners love him so much, but because he is so anxious after the arrival of their first child, they are faced with the heartbreaking decision of having to find Dooley a new home.
He is a very devoted and loving dog. At 7, he has some age-related aches and pains, but is generally a healthy dog.
Dooley will do really well in a quiet home where he is the only pet – and the only “baby”. He would be a great choice for a senior or retired couple looking for a sweet companion to snuggle. Dooley loves his lap time!
His new owners will need to be patient with him and live Dooley unconditionally. He has been known to do some pee marking, but with diligent use of his belly band, that problem is handled. He is a smart boy, and with some consistent correction, this issue can likely be fixed.
Why is Dooley Being Placed For Adoption
Dooley deserves to be with someone that can work with him on the marking and separation anxiety. He was the baby before our 8 month old and he hasn’t adapted well. My husband and I both work a lot and of course our 8 month old is our main priority now. Dooley doesn’t get the attention he needs or deserves. He’s a smart dog and I feel confident with the right person his behaviors can be corrected.
He barks at everything and is kind of edgy. I went to pet him the other night and he snapped at me because I scared him, which was a first for that. He’s very head strong.
