Message from McGuyver’s Family (May 2018)

McGuyver May 2004-May 2018.  Rest In Peace my precious boy.

McGuyver left us on May 25th.  His last three weeks were a gift because we knew he was failing and the vet gave us some medication to control what was going on inside.  The last few days of his life his strength left him and even his ferocious appetite was declining.  We didn’t want him to suffer so we had a veterinarian from Bridge Services come to our home and we sat on the floor on blankets and said goodbye to our sweet boy.  When we met McGuyver he was a spirited and insecure dog who went from foster home to foster home.  With us he found his forever home and in turn McGuyver taught us patience, he taught us to slow down on walks and appreciate everything around us.  He gave us unconditional love, taught us that naps are awesome and finding the right spot in the sun is the best, that doggie hound smell is very special, nothing tops a good belly rub and salmon and cheese are the finest treats.  We taught him the importance of good customer service at Craig’s shop, the value in good dental care (he had teeth issues), sitting for treats and trying not to lick the dishes in the dishwasher at the other people’s homes.  (I think we failed with this one).  Mac leaves behind his friends in the neighborhood, Bodhi, Zoe, Bella, Ozzie, Rocko, Julio, Gigi, Chico, Ru, Georgie and Elsa.  He’s now being welcomed by Kobe, Piper and Willie.

Safe journey Little Man.  We will miss your snoring and your gentle soul.


McGuyver was adopted by Jan Weiss & Craig Andersen. (May 2010)

Original Story

Hello there, my name is McGuyver!  I am a 6-year-old neutered male fawn Pug mix.  I am believed to be a Puggle (that is a Pug and a Beagle).  I was surrendered to PROS with my friend Monica because our family was no longer able to care for us.  I am a very big, strong, active young man.  I used to be an escape artist, but that is believed to be due to lack of attention.  My sister nor I were ever taken on a walk, a ride in the car, or to a dog park.  Now that I am in my new foster home, getting the love and attention that I should have, I no longer have the desire to escape.  I like it here, it is a nice change!  I am friendly and get along well with cats, dogs and children.  I am house-trained, however a little re-enforcing is being worked on.  Since we were kept outside all the time, I am getting the big picture that it is a no no in the house.  I am over joyed to interact with people, I like going on walks and taking rides in the car.

I am up-to-date on my vaccinations, I am micro-chipped, and I was negative on my heart-worm test.  Now I am just waiting for that beautiful family to call my very own, I will not disappoint you!
