Australian Shepherd-Pug Mix Dog For Adoption in ESCONDIDO, CA
Charlie and his sister Echo are in need of a good home. I have had them since they were puppies, and I honestly do not want to have to find them a new home, but I had to move in with my parents after lost my job and they have large dogs who are beating up on them. I have tried to make the situation work, but for their own safety, I need to find a home for them. It's just not a good situation, and I love them too much to see them get hurt by my parents dogs. They both need a home ASAP.
They are 3 years old, a mix of Pug, Australian Shepherd and Min-pin. Both spayed and neutered. They are completely potty trained, crate trained, leash trained, and follow basic commands. They are very well socialized and do well with children and other animals (chickens excluded). They love driving in the car, and do very well when I take them places. They would make wonderful dogs for a family or someone who needs a companion. They are not very big, each is about 29 pounds and in great health.
They need to stay together; I am not willing to separate them.
I am asking for $150 as an adoption fee per dog, however this is only a means of my being assured that whoever takes them would be really committed to keeping them. I simply need to know that they are going to a home where they will be loved and cared for.
If you are interested, or have questions, please send me a text or give me a call ASAP. I live in the San Diego CA area; dogs are available for pickup only.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
- Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
- Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
- Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
- Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
- Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.
