Pet of the Week: Donut PDF Print Email


By Allison Roesser

Oct. 23, 2019:  Meet Donut. A handsome chub of a pug who is 12 years old and was sadly surrendered to a rescue group due to the death of his owner. Despite all of the changes in his life recently, he has handled everything with an easygoing, go-with-the-flow attitude and is ready to begin his next chapter.

Donut has been nominated for the following categories in the senior division of best dog 2019: Best imitation of a floor potato, cutest howl, best face roll, and, of course, best shadow. Donut loves to be close to any human at any time. He adores people and feels most secure at the foot of your bed or by your feet. He is sporting seven teeth, which makes for the perfect photo op when his tongue is poking out of his mouth.  

This chunky pug is working on his mobility and weight, so he does require a bit of lift to get downstairs. But, by remaining on his current diet, he will continue to lose the extra weight, which will make it easier for him to move around.

Donut has done great while meeting cats, other dogs, and kids. He would make a wonderful pet for someone looking for a literal couch potato who is an old man and not as rough and tumble as he used to be. This sweet boy is a little hard of hearing, and his sight isn't what it was when he was a young buck, but this doesn't slow this smart boy down. He maps the room by using his body to feel the edges of furniture until he's committed a new space to memory.  

Other than having a dry eye, Donut is in good health and neutered. He recently received a dental cleaning, vaccinations and will be microchipped before adoption. If you would like more information about this loving boy, please email  CLOAKING  or visit
