My story

Meet Sassy! Give her some time and she’ll steal your heart (along with your socks & whatever she can get ahold of)! This adorable little girl is about 20 months old and weighs 19 pounds.

In her foster home, she has become very playful with her foster siblings. Still loaded with puppy energy, Sassy loves toys and loves chewing, so she will need chewy toys or your shoes.

Sassy is a very timid little girl. Her foster mom has been successful getting Sassy on a leash but only her foster mom. Sassy is going to require a lot of patience in her forever home to help her blossom into the best little Pug she can be. A fenced yard is a must while she gets to know you and another little dog to play with and take her cues from will be a big help. Sassy is not aggressive but unexpected moves and grabby fingers won’t be a good combination for her. Dog savvy children over 8 only, please.

Sassy is potty trained (outside and potty pads), but she will need to learn the routine in her new home. She does suffer from separation anxiety and will whine and cry when she’s left behind. Her loud bark makes her the perfect dog alarm.

Sassy has been spayed, is current on vaccinations, has tested negative for heartworm and has been microchipped.

You can visit at the Salt Lake PetSmart (1830 South 380 West) the third Saturday of each month from 11-3.

Why adoption is a great option

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

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