    Larry’s new mom tells us about her new furry bundle of joy.

    I have been wanting a pug for as long as I can remember. Their rolls and expressive faces are irresistible! Being fairly small and not needing too much exercise makes them the perfect apartment dog too.

    We found Larry through a dog Instagram account we have followed for years. The account knew the breeder was having puppies, we figured we’d take a chance and see where they were located. It turned out they lived in NYC so we picked up Larry a few short weeks later. We had a choice of him or his brother. Larry was “the chubby one” and we knew we had to have him.

    ^Larry and his pug parents!

    After years and years of wanting a pug named Larry finally getting him was an absolute dream come true. He makes me laugh everyday with his overly expressive face. When walking around town there is no dog or person Larry won’t greet. He is a dog of the town! He makes everyone fall in love with him instantly. Our walks are usually short as we stop constantly for people wanting to pet or take photos of him.
