Warren County Animal Control and Adoption Center has a dog that probably strayed from its owners.
“He’s an older Pug and he’s a special needs dog,” said Kim Pettrey, facility director. “We’ve all fallen in love with him here. He’s so sweet.”
Pugston, as he was affectionately named by staff, was found in a ditch on Highway 8.
“It’s obvious he was cared for by someone,” said Brandi Bouldin, facility employee. “I’ve tried to find his owner but I’m not having any luck. Someone is missing this little guy.”
While Pugston has minimal distinguishing features from other Pugs, he does have one medical situation that is being kept under wraps as a way to determine his true owner, if need be.
“We’re hoping his owner calls up and he can go home,” said Bouldin. “We want to make sure he’s going with the right person.”
If the owner does not come for him, he will be placed up for adoption.
Pugston has been neutered. His adoption fee will be $10.
