Rita's Story...
Rita is a petite, young fawn pug mix with a twinkle in her eye. Only 2 years old and 10 pounds, this lightweight endured some tough days as a stray on the streets of San Antonio before being rescued from a kill shelter. But the mean streets didn't get the best of Rita. She’s extremely perky and friendly from the minute she meets you, and is as eager to cuddle with people as she is to play with other pups. Rita is silly, curious, and seems to always be winking at you. . . partly because she is missing an eye, her one concession to the mean streets. She’s healthy, spayed, heartworm negative, micro-chipped, and ready to find love. If you want to help a dog in need, and can't resist the pull of a playful, cuddly pup, Rita may be the perfect pooch for you. To adopt this little lady, fill out the online application today at

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Austin 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 Austin 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 Austin paves the way for another one to be saved.
