Hey everyone! My name is Pumba.
In January, my siblings and I were brought to a shelter in Houston, Texas. Someone had called to report that there were sick puppies on a property next to theirs for a month. I was sad no one said anything or tired to help us before that since we just kept getting worse over time. But, I am so thankful they finally did and my siblings and I are feeling MUCH better now that we are being treated. We all had this thing called demodex mange. Don't worry, it's not contagious, and by the time I get to MN I'll be totally healthy and my hair will be growing back beautifully! :) It's amazing what a little medication and some great baths and meals can do! Check out the video of my siblings and I all at the shelter.. pretty crazy how far we've come! https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=454935395410645
I am a puppy and learning all the new things that puppies need to learn. Puppies typically love dogs, cats, kids, and adults. I am high energy and I need a family that has the time and patience for a puppy. The reward is puppy breath and kisses!
*The breed of a shelter puppy is often times a guess based on what traits the dog presents when they are brought into the shelter. We cannot guarantee the breed or size they will be full grown.*
