Today we bring you the latest pug star in our Social Pug Profile series. We have been lucky enough to interview the adorable rescue pug, Homer. Homer and his parents are such an inspiration to the pug community. Not only do they share amazing photos on social media, mainly Instagram, but they have shown such wonderful love and spirit throughout the community. Homer’s parents rescued him and have taken a very shy and timid pug and shown him the love he deserves and help him grow into the wonderful pug he is loved for. Now we have the upmost pleasure of sharing the wonderful Homer, or Homerpugalicious as he is known on Instagram, with you all.

Birth date or Gotcha Date: My gotcha day is Mum’s BDAY!! 01 May, so it’s coming soon

What is your favourite time of the day? When mum leave work, so she can finally give me some peace.
What is your favourite food? Anything that can fit my mouth, I hate dry food though. *hoek*
Do you have a toy that you can’t live without? Bunny and teddy bear that I stole from mum’s soft toy collection.
What do you hate the most? I hate strangers! Why do you have to come to my house? I am scared of you.
What do you love the most? Besides food? I love taking photos and putting on costume, because I know that I would get treat soon <3
Do you have any bad habits? Fart silently without warning when my butt is facing my mum’s face. oops
What do you think is your best quality? Being really good off-leash and listen to mum
What does a typical day look like for you?
5am: Morning run with daddy
7am: Munch some raw bone
8am: Play with toys
9am: Sleep, snore, fart
5pm: Evening run with mummy
8pm: Sleep, snore, fart
What has inspired you to share photos on Instagram? It’s started from mum’s account, with encouragement from everyone I then change the account name to what I have now.
Do you have any tips for other pugs who want to become InstaFamous? Be patient, people will notice you sooner or later. Just take great photos, build community, and HAVE FUN! Don’t forget, being “instafamous” is not everything. It comes with all sorts of drama.
What tips do you give to other pugs who aspire to be an awesome model like you? Always sleep close to 20hours a day, because everyone knows pugs need their beauty sleep. Keep exercise to a minimum, 5 minutes a day is enough. Do wrinkle exercise because it’s your best asset.
