Roo Ben went to his forever home near Shreveport, LA today.  He will be the companion and only pet to a 37-year-old mentally-challenged man who lives semi-independently in a guest house on his parents' property.  Perfect match; they loved each other instantly.

Yesterday, I picked up my foster from the famous 37 rescue effort.  Meet Gemini, Crisis Dog #10:

Congratulations to Roo! I'm so glad he found his forever home and it sounds like the perfect home for him!! Gemini is a very handsome boy or is Gemini a very pretty girl? Either way Gemini is a good looking Pug!

Does Gemini have any behavior problems? Or is he a well adjusted dog?

Gemini was rescued from a puppy mill.  He spent his whole life in a barn in Iowa.  The pugs were not caged (except pregnant and nursing females and pups), so they were socialized with each other but not much with humans.

Gemini was never potty trained, never walked on a leash, never had a soft bed, heating or air conditioning.  He knows nothing.
