Shoogs here! I’m diggin’ the new homestead here at Pawsitive Restorations! I’ve decided that I love my captor, and I make sure she gets 5 gazillion kisses every day! I’ll love YOU too, but prolly not at first. It takes me a day or so to learn to trust, so you’re just going to have to take me captive and give me a few days to adjust. I have lots of room to run here, and that doggy door is COOOOL! I have new dog butts to sniff, there’s a squirrel outside that i’ll never catch, but that wont stop me from trying! I have a castle to call my own, until I find my forever home. Mama says I’m not spoiled. She’s wrong. 😂 I sleep on mama’s bed, on her pillow… or her head, (just depends on how deeply she’s sleeping). I have some new frenz, too! I love the ladies in da house, especially that hot potato chihuahua. (Hubba hubba!) I’m learning my house manners very quickly, and my
foster mom says I’m going to make the bestest friend to someone soon. I hope not TOO soon though because that Chihuahua is my 😍.  I’m not a super big fan of other dogs in my face, so I think I might like to have a family where I can be their one and only spoiled boy! 
P.S. They took my nuts. I don’t know how to feel about that yet. 😕

KNOWN HISTORY – Shoogs was dumped with about 30 other dogs on the side of a rural Colorado Highway. This was believed to be a backyard breeder dump. The dogs were in poor condition; very skinny, matted, and with badly neglected teeth. Shoogs was cryptorchid, requiring a special neuter surgery. The dogs had obviously been very neglected, physically and socially. But not anymore! Their teeth have been cleaned, bloodwork looks good, neuters are done, they’ve gained a little weight, (could stand to gain another pound or so), and their wonderful little personalities are coming through. After Shoogs came into our program, he was coming out of his shell within 24 hours. He has done REALLY great, and we are very proud of this happy, loving, super sweet little boy. 

Won’t you please consider adding this precious, sweet, loving little boy to your family? If you are not quite ready to add a new member to your family, won’t you please #SHARE our adoptable kiddos on social media? You never know when your share is the share that will bring them home.

Shoog’s adoption fee is $450 and includes neuter, microchip with free lifetime registration, age appropriate vaccinations, dewormers, and heartworm prevention started. He will come home with a hobo bag of things to help him get started in his new furever home. You can apply to welcome him into your family by completing an adoption application below.

Please understand that adopting from P.R.A.R. means FOREVER. Please do NOT apply if you do not have the time to properly train and exercise a dog (now and in the future) or if you do not meet the minimum adoption requirements for the dog in which you are applying.
