About Captain

Captain was a stray before finding his way to us. In the beginning, he didn't have much use of his back legs due to some nerve damage and arthritis. However, with daily stretches, he is starting to stand and even walk a few steps on his own! He's fast; especially when he's in his wheelchair. Captain is as sweet and loving as they come; always happy to see you. He'll throw himself into your lap for affection and belly rubs. He'll also stare deep into your eyes. Seriously. We've had several people comment that it's as if he's looking into your soul. He does fine with other dogs, but has been known to get a little nippy with them (and humans) when he's excited. His favorite place is to be wherever the humans are. Although he's getting stronger in the hind-end, Captain does need to have his bladder expressed several times a day as he doesn't have the muscles to urinate fully on his own. He's one of the easier ones to express and once you've done it a couple of times, it's like second nature.

Not what you were looking for? You can adopt a different pet in We serve all of Los Angeles & San Bernardino Counties; we rescue as far East as Palm Springs, as far south as Orange County and sometimes San Diego and as far North as Thousand Oaks. We will adopt to any area as long as the adopters can either drive home or fly home their Pug with them in the cabin of the plane. As long as we can do a house check and approve you, we will consider you! by using our search feature and adjusting the radius.
