Almost a year ago, this amazing little pug came into our family. She enriched our lives in so many ways, and we’d like to believe that we enriched hers.
We, as a family, had been talking about getting a dog for quite some time... the idea was to take in a dog that needed a home by going to an animal shelter... but we never actually got around to it.
One day we were told that there was a family who had a female pug and were considering giving her away... as painful as that was to give away their 7 year old dog, it was a necessity. We had never seen her, never played with her, never really noticed pugs before, but it all made sense... and it was love at first sight.
Maria is her name. She is adorable, loving, intelligent, fun... everything we'd like in a new addition to our family, and more.
Never would I have thought that getting an adult dog would be so great! Puppies are always sooo cute, and creating a bond with a puppy would be easy. How wrong I was! Animal can sense when you mean well for them, when you love them, independently of their age. Something absolutely marvellous about an adult dog? They are potty trained! Makes our hectic lives so much easier.
Christmas is coming up, my suggestion to someone who might be thinking about getting a dog... maybe and one from a shelter, in much need of a new home full of love... just a suggestion.
