Talent Hounds Talks Pugs with Pet Radio Tomorrow
We are excited to announce that we will be joining our great friend Gizmo of Gizmo’s Frens tomorrow, Saturday July 25th, on the Pet Radio Show.
Don’t miss Robert from the Pet Radio Show interviewing Susie about Kilo the Pug.
Kilo the Pug
Kilo is a mischievous 2-year-old little black Pug. He will celebrate his third birthday next week. He may be mixed with some other breed as he has lighter coloured paws and a long back. We are not sure because he is a rescue. I started fostering him from Homeward Bound Rescue on August 4th, 2014. He had been in 4 homes when we got him. He was only meant to be with us for a few weeks until my daughter went back to school and/or he found a forever home. Of course, we all fell for his cute little face and we have not been able to give Kilo up.
It is very important to do your research before you get any breed of dog (see our breed library if interested and talk to experts and owners). Pugs can be quirky, demanding and hard to train. They are not for everyone.
It is also important to understand the commitment if you are considering getting a puppy. All puppies are hard work. They make messes, chew things, wake up in the night, and need training and exercise. They also require vet visits, toys, food and treats.
Kilo is a lap dog, or a velcro dog. He is very very affectionate to the people he is attached to. He does not like strangers, particularly the postman. He sheds a lot and is incredibly greedy and protective about food (and food includes just about anything – he loves dirty tissues).
He can not run or walk too far which suits me as I have bad knees. My husband would prefer a bigger breed like our previous dogs Cookie and Isabelle (Lab mixes). However, he does have bursts of energy every hour or two and needs lots of mental and physical stimulation. We go for short walks then play games and do trick training.
You can see my love letter to Kilo for the #iheartmydog fundraising campaign. He is not perfect but he is perfect for me.

We love Gizmo and his handler Jenifer – they really make a difference in the world.
Each show is presented to offer informative and specific information to an audience of all ages, pet owners or hobbyists, in a fun but detailed oriented manner.
