Hi there, we are Bandit (14 yrs) and Layla (13.5 yrs). We have been together all our lives and are what APARN calls a “bonded pair.” This means we love and depend on each other, and want to stay together. We saw the vet and he said that both of us are in great shape for our ages, so we were happy to hear that!
Let me share a few things you will want to know about us if you are thinking about adoption. I’m Bandit, and my birthday is Feb. 27, 2002. That makes me a Pisces for those that are up on all that Astrology stuff! My vision isn’t as good as it used to be, as I have cataracts, but I see ok. I also have some mobility issues due to arthritis, but I’m sure when you get to be the equivalent of my age, you will too! I don’t do well with steps, so I prefer a one level home (or a home where I am not expected to go up and down stairs.) Oh, I also don’t hear really well, but it’s often hard to determine if a pug doesn’t hear well or if we are just ignoring you! I love to cuddle and love to nap, and if we can cuddle while taking a nap, well that is just the best! I will admit, I am not fond of children. I would prefer my forever home not have young children or grandchildren coming to visit.
My sister Layla is six months younger than me. Her birthday is October 23, 2002 (she is a Scorpio). She has a benign fatty tumor under her right front paw, but other than that, she is a pretty happy girl. Layla is on a special diet to keep her from getting bladder stones – It is Royal Canin SO, and it is prescription, so you get it at your vet’s office. She also takes ½ of a Proin chewable at breakfast and at dinner, to help with her bladder control. Layla isn’t a fan of doggy doors, as the flaps frighten her, so she likes to have someone let her out, and preferably, come out with us so we aren’t unattended. Layla also loves taking naps, and she likes lots of pillows. She also would prefer our forever home not have little kids, as they scare her.
So, what do you think? Are you ready to give a nice retirement home to a couple of deserving seniors? Please fill out the adoption application and get the process started!
***We appreciate your interest in adopting a pug in need. Please respect our process and our time, as we are all volunteers with full time jobs. An application starts the process. We are not able to answer calls with questions about the foster pugs. ***
***We encourage you to come to our adoption events to meet the pugs in person if you are interested in adoption. Again, please do not call regarding the adoptable pugs. APARN is an all volunteer non-profit organization. We do not have a shelter. Our dogs are currently being fostered in private homes generally located throughout the greater Phoenix metro area.***
Our adoption fee is $125
