Gizmo's Story...
Calm Gizmo strolls into the rescue weighing in at 17 lbs.He is about 8 years old, chilled out and confident that he will get adopted soon. He is usually low-key, but he loves to be around people, even if it's just sitting at your feet. I think he views himself as more of a person than a dog -- sometimes when he is around other dogs he can seem completely disinterested! He had a leg injury when we took him in, and we had hip surgery and lots of physical therapy done on it to make sure it healed, but he has a knee problem on the same leg that still gives him pain sometimes. We think he was stepped on as a puppy and his injuries weren't treated, but he doesn't let it slow him down much. Now and then though, you can tell it is bothering him and Gizzy protects himself by being a little cranky when it comes to touching or picking him up in a way that would aggravate his leg. Needs a loving forever family that will spoil him every day of his life. To apply for this cool cat visit

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gizmo, 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.
