Stitch is 5 years old and was found as a stray in Georgia and was going to be euthanized because he tested positive for heart worm. A Michigan group rescued and treated him. They asked Buffalo Pugs to help in placing him and to have eye surgery performed to correct his cherry eye. He has had that surgery now and is doing fine although he will have to take heart worm preventative medicine for the rest of his life so as to not get it again.
Stitch is a very very sweet little guy who must come up to strange dogs and people FIRST, check them out and make friends. He does not like to be grabbed initially by strangers. He wants the first few sniffs! Therefore, we feel he would be better placed with older children who understand that they cannot grab and startle him. Once the first few sniffs are over he will jump right into your lap, give lots of kisses and get as much cuddling as he can. He will put his head on your chest and look into your eyes as if to say “You are mine”. He acts in a similar manner with strange dogs. He might snap at first if startled but then he is off playing with them as if he’s known them forever. He would be fine if placed with other dogs but would also be OK if placed alone. Spike is just a lovable snuggle bug...
LOL He is just to cute. We have no idea what happened to his poor ears but it was definitely man-made, not from a dog fight.
Stitch's heartworm is now good, however, he has cherry eye in one of his eyes that needs to be fixed. We are trying to raise some funds to help with this surgery as we have had a number of surgery's recently and they have all been a bit expensive. If you can help out at all, please click on the link to donate below! Stitch will put a smile on your face and will touch a place in your heart! Stitch's pictures do him no justice... in person he is even more adorable then his pictures. We would like to place Stitch in a home with kids at least 10 yrs old so they know not to go grabbing at him, but he loves to cuddle with them, he will make a wonderful best friend!
Stitch is being fostered in Buffalo.
