Matilda's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Matilda's Story...
In this corner, weighing in at ten pounds, wearing the fawn coat, at the ripe old age of ten, Matilda B. Darling.

Don’t let her looks fool ya’; this small package is loaded with personality and even more spice. It could be her age. It could be her former life, which remains a mystery, as she came to us from a shelter. Whatever it is, this little mama demands your attention and will keep you entertained for hours!

It seems maybe a spot of dementia can sum up her tendency to be a bit grouchy. She loves all humans but will certainly let you know when she wants space, especially while she’s eating. It’s probably for the best that she be an only puggy, as she can get randomly possessive and confused and will get after her competition. It’s really humorous more than anything, as she has no teeth and is too little to even scare other dogs.

Along with being grumpy sometimes, she has some pretty severe arthritis in her hind legs, making her incapable of climbing any stairs, though she will step down just one stair. She also needs your help to cuddle with you gingerly in your bed or on the couch, although she will stay in her bed or on the floor. She just loves to be held like a baby on her back; we think it makes her legs feel better.

Matilda is adorable despite her grumpiness and seemingly random fits of jealous humorous rage. We cannot recommend children or cats, as we could not guarantee she wouldn’t be jealous or dominant. She has no known health concerns other than her once daily dose of Cosequin for her joints. She is housetrained and well behaved, with no chewing, anxiety or other behaviors that require you to be home all the time.

Oh yeah, we believe she has anteater ancestry because of her freakishly long tongue that she displays all... the... time.

We hope you can give this sweetie baby angel as much love as she deserves and enjoy her grouchy tendencies as much as we do.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Strasburg 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 Strasburg 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 breeders who help with Pug rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Strasburg paves the way for another one to be saved.
