Cupcake is an adorable little pug! She is 17 lbs and ~8 years old, which is really only middle-aged for pugs, so she has many good years ahead of her. Cupcake was picked up as a stray and taken to a high-kill shelter. She came down with a little cold in the shelter, and that plus being a little older put her at risk for being euthanized. We couldn't let that happen to such a sweet girl! Cupacke is very low-maintenance. She makes no messes in the house, she doesn't chew anything and she is completely house-broken. Cupcake gets along with all dogs and is good with small children. We don't have cats, but I can't imagine her having any problems with cats. Cupcake is blind in one eye, but that doesn't slow her down a bit! She is quite the little princess and does have to sleep on the bed. She also prefers her own pillow up at the top of the bed! Cupcake is spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations and just had her teeth cleaned. Cupcake's adoption fee is $175. If you are interested in meeting Cupcake, please contact Delon.Washo@asu.edu or 602-295-4518.
Rescue Group Info...
AZ Prussian Snailhound Dog Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit organization that is committed to providing rescue and safe-haven for dogs in need. Most of the dogs we rescue are of mixed breeds. When we are out with our dogs and people ask, "What kind of dog is that?", my husband replies by saying, "It is a rare Prussian Snailhound. They are popular in Europe." Each Prussian Snailhound is unique and deserves a loving home! Please open your heart and your home to a rescue dog!
Our major focus is the rescue of stray dogs from the Ft. McDowell Indian Reservation. Since July 2009 we have worked with other groups to rescue over 300 dogs and puppies. These are amazingly sweet dogs that have had to live off of the land and brave extreme heat, cold, rain, drought, coyotes, rattlesnakes, hunger, traffic and people who try to harm them. They deserve to have a proper home. This started out as a mission to save about 30 dogs who hung out behind the casino, as the casino managers saw them as a nuisance and were threatening to poison or shoot the dogs. We ended up saving way more dogs as we became aware that the problem extended far beyond the casino. Some of the adult dogs are extremely fearful of humans at first and require extensive rehabilitation in order to learn how to trust and become a member of the family. Once they realize how good home life is, they will be your best friend for life!
In addition to the rescue and rehabilitation of dogs from the Ft. McDowell Indian Reservation, it is our goal to work closely with the tribe to educate people who live on the Reservation about spay/neuter and to facilitate a low cost spay/neuter program. So far in 2011, 148 pets have been spayed/neutered on the Reservation!
Pets are in foster homes, so meetings are set by appointment only.
All interested parties need to request and fill out an adoption application. Application fees vary depending on age, temperament and health of the dog. Typically puppies are $200-275 and adults are $100-175.
