Jonathan Graziano‘s foster pups need names!
Graziano, famously known on TikTok as Noodle the pug‘s owner, while still mourning the loss of his favorite furry friend Noodle, has decided to take baby steps to be a dog dad again by fostering two sweet pug puppies. The rescue he’s helping out by fostering the two little pugs until they find their forever homes is looking for some help naming them.
Jonathan Graziano’s Foster Pug Puppies Need Names!
Graziano is loving every minute of being a pug foster dad, and he’s sharing much of the experience on social media. He recently shared the news that the rescue he’s helping out by fostering the two adorable baby Noodle look-a-likes is asking for some help in naming them.
As Graziano was explaining that the puppies need names in a recently shared TikTok video, the adorable little guys were playfully climbing all over him.
“They are so much fun to have. I’m exhausted and I smell like pee and I’m at 100 percent,” he said. “A few updates for you all about these puppies. First of all, names. So, SNORT rescue is how I have come to take care of these little dogs, and they will be handling most of everything involving them.”
The pups are not ready to be adopted just yet, but they will be very soon. Graziano said he will be sharing all that information as it happens. “But please check out SNORT. They will be the first to post that information,” he explained. “SNORT is also running a naming contest for these little dogs.”
SNORT – Short Noses Only Rescue Team, posted information about the naming contest on their Facebook page on Sunday. They will announce the pups’ names on Wednesday night, which will no doubt make it a Noodle approved “bones” day.
The link in the Facebook post brings people who are interested in helping out to a fundraising page. The description on the page reads, “These Little Pug Babies Need Names!!! This pair of 2 month old pugs (both males) came to SNORT in need of some initial care before they move to the adoptable page. But first! We need your help to help us name them! Will you donate towards their care and help us name them?”
The description continued with what to do if you want to help. “Here’s what you need to do: 1. Donate $10 to at the donate button below. 2. Put your suggested set of names for both in the comments! 3. Wednesday at 8pm we will randomly select one set of the submitted sets of names for the Pug Babies! Help us raise funds for their care and take a chance at giving these babies a name!!”
So far, 62 people have donated a total of $1,029. Most of the suggested names keep with the theme of noodles in honor of Noodle the pug who passed away in December.
Some of the proposed puppy names include, “Ziti and Orzo,” “Cacio and Pepe,” “Macaroni and Rigatoni,” “Fusilli and Rotini,” and “Linguine and Fettucine.”
Jonathan Graziano Has Kept His Social Media Followers Updated Since Getting The Puppies
“We’ve got this one who’s super, super chill,” he said as he’s petting one pug puppy. Then the camera pans over to the other pug puppy who’s having a blast chewing on Graziano’s pants. “And then this one who just wants to fight.”
One follower noted, “It’s like Noodle had so much personality he reincarnated into two halves.”
Another person added, “💯 believe noodle sent them to you. Both sides of noodle are represented here. Please keep them.”
One follower had an interesting name suggestion, “Name one bones and the other no bones lol.”
