Rescue Me ID: 18-03-13-00208Becca (female)

Pug Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed 

    Who knew that Chewbacca had a tiny little sister?? Knock me over with a feather! This little imp looks a bit like her big 'brother'and naturally they speak the same language. Becca does that same little high pitch sort of purr noise. Typically that cute little sound comes out of this wee imp when she is grumbling at someone! She may be tiny but she does on occasion consider her self a force to be reckoned with-like many small dogs. Becca came from an apartment that had over 30 dogs,small dogs of all sorts of breeds and mixed pretty well to create some quite unique pups! She appears to be a Pom, has the pug coloring and more of a snub nose ... (Read More)than the particular chihuahua or pom face, but it is actually a guess, we cannot guarantee her breeds. The first day here she did not want to be held but has quickly come around and has gotten more engaging and social. She will sit on our laps but then 'purr' when she wants down, it is on her terms-lol. Becca really is an adorable little girl but needs an experienced and patient family, no small kids please. She was first estimated at 8 years old, but could be between 5-8 years. She is around 10 stocky pounds, she could lose a little, she obviously has been accustomed to table food so we are working on that. Becca loves being around other dogs, enjoys strolling in the yard and a nice nap in the sun. They had been potty pad trained but she has been doing well going potty outside and will need a family to continue reinforcing that behavior. Becca's adoption fee is $275, please email Kristine at (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-03-13-00202Bubbles (female)

Pug Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed 

    Sweet little Bubbles is settling in well at her foster home. She enjoys the company of people as well as other dogs. Bubbles came from a home that had many other dogs , over 30 as a matter of fact, so our house is a drop in the bucket. The family obviously loved little dogs, they had quite a variety that mingled and had puppies so there were some very unique combinations. Bubbles appears to be a 'chug', which is 1/2 chihuahua, 1/2 pug. It is a guess, but with her coloring and her snubby little nose it is a pretty good guess. The dogs appeared to be well cared for and loved, they have all been very sweet for the most part. They are a little ... (Read More)shy which is understandable since they have left the only home they had ever known. Bubbles is a very sweet, gentle lady and is about 3-4 years old. She is about 12 pounds, a little short and stocky and maybe a little on the chunky side(who am I to judge!) She is a real sweetheart and will make some lucky family a wonderful companion, another dog in the home would be great as well. Her adoption fee is $250, please email Kristine at (Less)
