Rauli, pug

Rauli is a male pug dog in the care of Compassionate Pug Rescue of South Florida.

Rauli loves to socialize — he'll get along great with other dogs, cats and kids. He's already neutered and vaccinated.

Notes from Rauli's caretakers:

Hello pug lovers! Thanks for checking me out. I’m a dapper senior, still very frisky and playful. I don’t have an aggressive bone in my svelte body. I'm a friend to other dogs and people. Sadly, my owner had to go into assisted living, so I'm grateful family members found a temporary place for me at CPR. Won't you take a chance on a sweet good boy like me?
