Clementine, The Pug, Schnauzer And Terrier Mix

Lizzi — a self-proclaimed avid bowler and karaoke singer who works in the fashion industry — adopted three-year-old Clementine just last year from the Pasadena Humane Society. Miss Clem, as Lizzi affectionately calls her, had puppies in the shelter.

“I was very lucky to adopt her the first day she was available after nursing!” Lizzi says.

Lizzi describes Clementine as very loving and sweet, but timid and a little silly at times. 

“According to her DNA test she’s a pug, schnauzer and terrier mix,” Lizzi says. “She sits like a human! It definitely comes from her pug side. When I researched it, apparently pugs like to side sit because they’re mimicking humans.”

We interviewed Lizzi to learn more about her darling pup.

Dog Whisperer HQ: Why did you choose Clementine?

Lizzi: Honestly, I wanted a dog who was going to be good around other animals, but also a little bit bigger than our cats, so the cats couldn’t boss her around. (They can be a little intense!)

DW: What is your relationship with your pup like? 

L: Clementine is absolutely my baby! Since she’s already had puppies, I think she’s fully living her best life now. I love living in Los Angeles because I can take her almost anywhere. Her favorite places to go are Sunset Beer and Stories Book Cafe because they always give her a treat.

Adopting Clementine is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! Seeing her grow from being a shelter pup to being a happy and healthy girl makes my heart so full.

DW: What are Clementine’s favorite activities? 

L: Clementine likes to go for short hikes (emphasis on short), enjoys sunbathing and loves chasing squirrels.

DW: What are your pup’s favorite foods and snacks? 

L: Her favorite treats are bacon and anything that my niece drops at the dinner table.

DW: Does Clem have any best friends? 

L: Clementine’s best friend is a dog named Luna! She is also a pug mix, and they have the same temperament. 

DW: What are some fun facts about Clem? 

L: She actually really likes wearing clothes! I think she can tell when people are looking at her when we go on walks. (She likes the attention. 😉)
