ZACH's Story...
Question:
What's cuter than a pug golden retriever mix?

Answer:
Not much.

Please meet Zach. When we saw this cutie patootie and his wet, dirty kennel in Ripley, Tennessee, he looked kind of depressed to be honest. As soon as we walked over to him he was smushing his face against the kennel and kissing us all over. We said to ourselves "I think this one needs to go outside and show us what he's got. "
As soon as Zach got out in the run, he turned into Mr. personality… Mr. happy. So much so that we named him after Zach Galifianakis... He was quirky looking, adorable, and hilarious and you really couldn't look at him without smiling. He wagged his tail and said hello to every one of the pups we brought out there to meet him. We got him to the vet everyone commented on how well behaved he was. He was an owner surrender, so someone dumped him at the Ripley shelter to fend for himself, and hopefully beat the odds. And let me tell you, his odds weren't good. But let me tell you, he jumped in that minivan wagging his tail and never looked back. Just foreword, down Highway 51 ....and on to Memphis to start his new life. He is neutered and vetted and microchipped and ready to go. He walks great on a leash and loves children and other dogs... His adoption donation fee of 450 includes Parvo distemper vaccination, rabies vaccination, six-month heartworm preventative vaccination pro heart shot, negative heartworm test, Dewormer, microchip, neuter, Bordetella vaccination, required health certificate to travel from Memphis to your area once adopted, and transport from Memphis to your area once adopted.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

ZACH, a Chicago Pug/Golden Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pug/Golden Retriever for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Pug/Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Chicago.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chicago already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Chicago breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pug/Golden Retriever breeders who help with Pug/Golden Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
