Tate
Tate - Adopted!

Meet Tate, or full name, Little Man Tate, or Mr. Taters as we lovingly refer to him Mr. Taters.  This very
Special Pug came in with a group of dogs from a puppy mill.  He was being used as a stud dog.  
Needing a little extra TLC he came into our care.

He was found living outside under a board with no food or water.  Arriving flea infested and with
worms, he’s happy to now be flea-free and clean.  His scrapes and scratches have all been
thoroughly cleaned out and on the mend.  He has a skin condition which we are currently treating.  He
is blind in one eye, in which the globe is dead has shrunk back into the eye socket.  This looks to be
an old injury.  

Mr. Taters is very underweight as you can see from his photos above.  He does have a good appetite
and we currently have him on a high calorie food to help.  His strength has already been coming back
to him.  He makes great improvement everyday.   

Loud noises do scare him so we would prefer to find a quiet environment for him.  How sad that he
had to spend the first few years of his life living in such deplorable conditions.   

Our little man Tate is a special pug who deserves a second chance for a good life.
