My story

Intake Date: 4 June 2022 ----- Age at Intake: 2.5 yrs ----- Breed: Pug/Chihuahua Mix----- Size: 13 lbs ----- Status: owner surrender ----- Compatible with: dogs, cats, children. ----- Suitable for: home with fenced yard. Apartment with leashed exercise ----- Medical/Behavioral Needs: none noted. Shy with new people ----- Additional Notes: Gnocchi is a part of the "Noodle Crew" who came to rescue from a home with dozens of animals. He was pretty shy and a bit of a fear snapper when he came to rescue initially which is understandable. He needs a caring family that will teach him that new things are not scary. He was at risk of being shot by neighbors due to the amount of loose animals roaming, but thankfully, he made his way to sanctuary! After about two days with us, he has started to really enjoy hugs and affection.

Why adoption is a great option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Minot 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 Minot 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/Chihuahua breeders who help with Pug/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Minot paves the way for another one to be saved.
