Chico's Story...
Chico is in need of a loving home ASAP. He is a 3 year old Pug mix that has lived his life in a puppy mill. Chico needs a home that will give him the TLC he's been missing for 3 years. This shy fellow needs socialization too. He needs to learn how to be a dog again. It would be best if Chico was adopted into an adult household. He is working on house training. This poor guy has known nothing in his life but a cage. Please give him a chance to find out how good life can be. It is not known if Chico likes dogs or cats. If you have a dog in your family it should be docile and will need to come for a meet and greet. Come anytime during regular business hours. You do not need an appointment. Please take it slow and have a staff member help you with your visit. Chico is a sweet boy, just very scared. With time and patience Chico will thrive.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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