Meet Dooley – Pug Dog For Adoption in Knoxville Tennessee TN

Looking for a Pug for adoption in Knoxville Tennessee? Dooley is a typical Pug. He is awfully cute, quite full of himself, very comical, and definitely pug-tastic! Like most Pugs, he is an aquired taste, but if you love Pugs, he doesn’t disappoint.
This 7 year old black male pug is fixed, up to date on shots and well behaved, for the most part. Unfortunately, Dooley’s world has been turned upside-down by the arrival of small humans in his home. He was the baby for so many years, and now he must share the attention with a human baby. This doesn’t sit well with Dooley, and he has been quite anxious and unhappy lately. He is clearly having a hard time living in harmony in a home with small children.
Dooley’s owners love him so much. It breaks their hearts to see Dooley unhappy, and they worry that his anxiety may cause him to nip their child as he becomes more mobile. They are dearly hoping to find Dooley a loving home with a Pug lover who will love him unconditionally, and keep him safe, happy and comfortable for the rest of his life.
Dooley has recently developed some behaviors that are part and parcel of his anxiety with at having to share the home with a small child. He has been doing some territorial marking, and he is obviously on edge. His separation anxiety has increased as well, and he has been doing a lot of barking.
In a loving home where he can be the “only baby” the owners are hopeful that these behaviors will improve. (He was not”perfect” before the arrival of the baby – but he was and is perfectly adorable!).
If you have room in your heart and home for Dooley, please offer him a loving home today. He needs a home with owners who stay home most of the time, and who will be patient and loving with him as he regains confidence that he is once again the golden child and has your undivided attention. He is a sweet senior Pug that wants to be cherished.
Please offer Dooley the loving home he needs and deserves today.

Reason For Rehoming
Dooley deserves to be with someone that can work with him on the marking and separation anxiety. He was the baby before our 8 month old and he hasn’t adapted well. My husband and I both work a lot and of course our 8 month old is our main priority now. Dooley doesn’t get the attention he needs or deserves. He’s a smart dog and I feel confident with the right person his behaviors can be corrected.
