Pupeye made his public debut at the November 2, 2021 Fernandina Beach City Commission meeting.  He is a special needs dog, who arrived at the Nassau Humane Society shelter as part of a rescue transport from Georgia.  He’s about 5 months old, with a black and tan coat, and readily displays affection to those around him.

Pupeye is a special needs pup — he was born with a deformity, and his rear legs don’t work. He can scoot about on his own, and he also has his own special cart that can help him get around. (The cart will go home with him. If he gets bigger he might need a larger cart later.) 

According to the Humane Society, he can do his business on his own, so he doesn’t need diapers, and they are working with him on house training and crate training. He’s coming along especially well with his crate. He barks at cats, but those who work with him think he should do well with other dogs, so bring yours over for a meet-and-greet. 

He loves people of all ages, including kids. The most important thing: This puppy is a true sweetheart and will be a loving companion, and what a wonderful, heartwarming thing you’ll be doing for a sweet little guy. 

To meet Pupeye and other animals awaiting adoption, drop by the Nassau Humane Society at 639 Airport Road, Fernandina Beach, Florida 32034.  Call (904)-321-1647 or email [email protected] for more information.
