#FindMeAHomeFriday: Tulip – The Typsy Mermaid

Fried Oysters from The Typsy Mermaid in Coconut Grove.

This is pretty little Tulip! She is 7 years old and partially blind, but that doesn’t stop her from getting around. She gets along with other dogs… but tends to be a leader. And she LOVES the boys! For more information on this precious pug, visit her adoption page.


#FindMeAHomeFriday is a campaign by Compassionate Pug Rescue and Miami Food Pug to help South Florida pugs find a forever home. Each Friday in June, we will be photoshopping a rescue pug available for adoption into an MFP food picture. For more details on the original campaign, visit the campaign page
