The pug has a dignity that would fit into the lifestyle of royalty but Muffin was left starving and overheated while fending for herself on the streets. The 1 year old likes to be close to you but is unobtrusive and will contentedly snore at your feet while you watch your favorite sitcom. Her compact size makes her perfectly suited for apartment life.
Not an athlete, a short morning stroll will suffice and Muffin can only survive a short walk in cool weather.
Bring your current canine and kids to the Arizona Humane Society’s Sunnyslope Campus located at 9226 N. 13th Ave. to meet Muffin. Muffin’s adoption fee is *$600 and includes her medical treatment, spay surgery and vaccinations. For more information call 602-997-7585 and ask for animal number A541254.
Muffin may have been adopted by the time you visit the shelter but visit www.azhumane.org and see many other dogs who are waiting for new homes.
* Editor’s note: AHS recently made the decision to transition to a sliding-scale adoption fee system. Adoption fees vary anywhere from $20-$600 and the fee is based on a variety of criteria including breed and adoptability of the pet. Since two out of three animals that come to the AHS shelter are injured, abused or sick and need extensive medical care, this helps AHS offset the cost of care, which averages nearly $900 per animal.
