Meet Puggy, Pug #47-18

Meet Coco, Pug #46-18

Coco is a 9 year old female pug rescued from the Scotia, NY Animal Shelter. Coco is all that a typical Pug should be. She is an Alpha, Dominant Female, and will do best with a very submissive dog or two. She does tend to be the Activity Monitor and likes to control and keep the home calm. She is actually doing well in our pack of Reactive dogs, but we do keep a close eye on their activities. Coco is housebroken, very happy and playful. She loves to snuggle and most definitely would like to sleep in your bed. She is good with Children. I don't know about cats, as I don't have any. Coco recently had an extensive dental, and is up to date on shots, etc. No eye, or orthopedic issues at this time, however, Coco had a lesion tested that came back as Mast Cell. We will update when we know more.

Coco is fostered in Rutland, VT and her adoption fee is $150.

Meet Loki, Pug 18-45

Loki is a 2 year old fawn chug (chihuahua/pug). Loki was surrendered after he was returned to his breeder by a family that did not give him the best care. Loki did not do well in his former home but has settled in nicely in his foster home with 6 other dogs. He prefers to keep his distance from the grandkids so a home with older children or adults would be best. Loki was said to need housetraining but again, had only one accident in his foster home. He has also been fine with the cats. Because Lokiís history is mixed, a new owner will need to give Loki time to adjust to new surroundings.

Loki is fostered in Ogdensburg, NY and his adoption fee is $300.

Meet Chiquita, Pug #41-18

Chiquita is an adorable 3-4 year old Chug (Pug/Chihuahua cross) She weighs 13 lbs.. She looks like a small chubby Pug with a Chug head. Lots of Chi attitude!

She is adorable!
