Jonathan Graziano is clearly enjoying being a foster dad to two sweet pug puppies that remind him of Noodle the pug. Macaroni and Rigatoni have been staying with Graziano for the past few weeks as they get ready to go up for adoption, and Graziano just announced that one of the puppies is ready to find his forever home.
In a new TikTok video, Graziano explains which puppy is ready to be adopted, when the other will be ready, and how to adopt them.
Rigatoni’s Adoption Is Now Live!
In Graziano‘s most recent TikTok video, he explains that it’s time for people who are interested in adopting Rigatoni to head on over to the rescue’s website now that his adoption has gone live. He also said that Macaroni’s adoption will be live soon.
“You will have to apply for each one separately,” he explained. “Rigatoni’s is up right now and macaroni will be up, keep an eye out for that one.”
Graziano explained that the pups are at a different foster family’s home right now as he’s about to go out of town until Wednesday. “They are in great hands,” he said. “And yeah, I would apply sooner rather than later, but let’s get them some amazing homes.”

Jonathan Graziano Has Been Fostering The Pups For A Few Weeks
While Graziano isn’t quite ready to become a full-time pug dad again yet after losing his bestie Noodle the pug back in December, he was ready to take a baby step and foster dogs while they waited to find their forever home.
After applying to become a foster pup dad, he found out he was going to be helping out two adorable pug puppies. The puppies didn’t have names when they got to Graziano’s home, but not long after, the rescue held a contest to name these cuties. The internet spoke and they got Noodle-inspired names – Rigatoni and Macaroni.
Graziano has been documenting much of the pug’s time with him on TikTok and Noodle fans are especially grateful to see Graziano smiling so big while playing with the puppies that each have a distinct feature that reminds everyone on Noodle.
Graziano, along with his nearly 5 million followers, have joked that one pug is similar to a “no bones” day and the other is a “bones day” all the way.
In a recent TikTok video, Graziano explains a little bit about their growing personalities, so anyone interested in adopting either one of them is prepared. He explained that Rigatoni usually likes to sleep on the floor or in a dog bed, but lately, he’s showing signs of being a lap pug, while his brother, Macaroni has his own preferences and personality.
“Whoever adopts these two little beans, and they’ll be adopted out separately, whoever adopts them, you will need to have a lap available at all times, if not most times,” he said. “And you must be willing to sacrifice.”
One follower dropped into the comment section to say how much they enjoy the updates on the little pug puppies. “Can I just say, I absolutely love your updates. I loved Noodle, I love you, and I love the new fosters! I too have a sassy senior pug named Egon,” they wrote.
Another follower added, “Your videos are pure joy.”
In another update video, Graziano shows how much fun the pups like chew bones.
“Whoever adopts them, please know, they will be adopted out separately, they are both chewers,” he said. “They’re both little sweethearts too.”
