Nate, a 4-year-old neutered black male pug, is handsome, curious and loves exploring the neighborhood on daily walks. He is good with other dogs and rides well in the car. He had bad skin allergies but he's looking good; he does need daily shampooing and special food. He would do best in a home where someone is around most of the day. To adopt Nate, call Pug Rescue (PROS) at 925-974-PUGS (925-974-7847), visit www.pugpros.org. After the holidays, the adoption fair will return from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 15, at Concord Pet Food Express, 785 Oak Grove Road (Treat Boulevard at Oak Grove).
Oreo, a 1-year-old, female Alaskan malamute, is sweet and is still growing. She walks OK on leash after she quiets down, and doesn't have any problems with a crate. She's learning manners quickly, but still jumps up. She loves to be with people; would be OK by herself or with a male buddy, but not good with females or small animals. To adopt Oreo, e-mail email@example.com, call MUSH (Malamutes Unwanted Seeking Homes) at 800-399-8155 or visit www.ncama.org and click on "rescue."
