Mala's Story...
Mala is super cute, chunky little monkey! She is 8 years old, which is really only middle-aged for pugs, so she has many good years ahead of her. Mala came to stay with us when her owner's fiance was determined to be allergic to her and to her pug friend, Millie. I have known Mala since she was a small puppy and it was my intention to have her stay with us in case her owner could ever take her back. After nearly a year though, I have realized that a crazy rescue house with new dogs coming and going all the time is not the ideal place for the pugs. They are getting older and deserve to have a more calm household with more one-on-one attention. Mala is very low-maintenance. She makes no messes in the house, she doesn't chew anything and she is completely house-broken. She is quite the little princess! She can't jump up on most furniture, so she has to be lifted up. She does have to sleep on the bed, and prefers her own pillow up at the top of the bed. This is how she has had it her whole life, so that needs to continue in her new home. An adopter needs to be aware that pugs snore! Mala's friend Millie is 11 years old. It would be nice if they went to a home together, as they are use to each other. However, they would likely do ok if separated. They have a strange relationship - they hang out together from time to time, but they don't really play together. Mala really likes it when we have puppies in the house, and she often tries to keep up with the big dogs too. She is good with small children. Her health is good. She is a pug, so she is naturally chubby. She eats low calorie food, but that doesn't seem to help much! She will be due for teeth cleaning soon. She is spayed and up-to-date on vaccinations. Mala's adoption fee alone is $125 or $200 for Mala and Millie together. If you are interested in meeting Mala and/or Millie, please contact or 602-295-4518.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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