Even being almost completely blind, Pudge still has a zest for life. He is quite the character, and when he gets the 'zoomies,' he will play bow to people he knows. Because of his limited vision, Pudge likes slow introductions, but it doesn't take him long to start to recognize you. Once Pudge gets to know you, he'll get very excited to see you. However, he settles down nicely when he is in a calm environment. During times of high excitement, he gets worked up around other dogs, but is easy to get him to come back when he hears your voice. At the Sanctuary, Pudge has been working on muzzle training and basic training cues. His caregivers are also teaching him to respond by changing direction when he is about to bump into an obstacle. Born in 2010, Pudge is diabetic and gets insulin twice a day. He also takes medication for his thyroid. Pudge is a very routine-oriented dog, so if you're someone who likes to keep a regimented schedule, he'll make a great sidekick.
