About Me

Meet Abe Pugoda
Status: Fostered
Estimated Age: 10+ Years

Estimated Weight:  29-30 Pounds

UPDATE – 14 OCTOBER 2021: Abe is a super sweet Puggle with the grumpiest face. He is house trained and great with children. For a 10 year old dog, he is quite active and LOVES to go for walks where he does very little sniffing/marking but rather just wants exercise. He also loves to go for car rides and is very well behaved. Although he eventually does okay with other dogs, he barks at them when leashed and would probably prefer to be an only child in his new home. Abe will go in his crate but can be quite mouthy while in there. He prefers to sleep in a human bed, specifically under the covers. Abe prefers constant human companionship to being left alone. If he even thinks he is alone, he does a very pathetic loud whining howl until you reassure him that you are there.

NEW – 24 SEPTEMBER 2021: Look at that face! Abe Pugoda is a senior Beagle/Pug mix who was a stray from Windsor, Virginia. Based on his personality and knowledge of some commands, we think he had been someone’s pet (no one ever claimed him). Abe knows “sit” and dances for cookies. He will be available soon.


Q:  Can you tell me more about a specific dog?  Is s/he good with kids / housetrained / good with cats/ etc?

A:  What we know is in the write up.  Our knowledge about any dog that is not in a foster homes is limited.  Once approved, our adoption coordinators will work with you to match you with the right dog.

Q:  Can I meet a specific dog?

A:  We’re sorry, but you must be an approved adopter to meet our dogs.  Pre-pandemic, dogs could be met at adoption days, but you still had to be approved to adopt from an adoption day.

Q:  How can I adopt a specific dog?

A:  You must submit an adoption application and be approved to adopt.  You can do that under Adopt – you can also learn about the adoption process there..  It will take about two weeks for an adoption coordinator to get in touch with you.  Please keep in mind that dogs that are available now may be adopted in the meantime.  But we are always getting new dogs.   You can see them on our website.

Q:  Can I add another dog to the list on my application?

A:  We don’t hold you to the dogs you listed on your application.  It gives us an idea of what you are looking for.  Plus it will let us know if someone is interested in one of our special needs / hard to place dogs.

Q:  I indicated that I was interested in a specific dog on my application, but I see that s/he has been adopted.  What happened?

A:  We do not hold dogs.  Applicants in the queue before you are being approved and may adopt the dog you are interested in before you are approved.  But we are always getting new dogs in and your adoption coordinator will help you find the perfect match.
