Big Pet on Campus: JoJo the Pug

Jojo channels the personality of any typical college student

Whether they’re the Seeing Eye Puppy Club puppies, cats that live in off-campus homes, or something else in between, there are always plenty of animals on campus. Big Pet on Campus is a new segment at The Tab Rutgers where we interview some really important fluffy personalities that live alongside Rutgers students. If you or someone you know has a pet and would like for us to interview it, please message us on The Tab Rutgers Facebook page.

After receiving a follow from Jojo the pug on Instagram, I instantly fell in love with his cute and cuddly pictures. His personality comes to life through social media, and seeing his squishy face pop up on my timeline has definitely been making my day recently. I decided to reach out to Jojo to learn more about the pug life and what it’s like being a big pet on campus at Rutgers University.
