Pugs come into rescue and are often quickly placed, making it difficult to maintain an accurate showing of who is available. We have several pugs in our care and will provide the information to those who have been approved to adopt. On average we get in 5 pugs a month, and also place that many.
We get in mainly adults and seniors, with our average age at 8. Seldom do we ever have puppies in rescue. Seniors make great companions, so please consider expanding your criteria. If you are absolutely looking for a puppy, please contact the Puget Sound Pug Dog Club for a list of breeders.
If you are interested in adopting a pug, start by filling out an adoption application. We'll let you know what pugs are available once you have been approved, and find the best fit for you. It may take a while to match a pug to you, especially if you want a younger one, so please be patient. We reserve the right to refuse an application.
Our pugs are not located in one place; they are all over the area in Foster Homes. They are not available for meeting until you have completed the application process.
Adoption fees range from $50 to $525, depending on age and health of the pug.
We have additional senior pugs available that are not listed because they are undergoing evaluation. You can still fill out an application to adopt a senior!
Clifford is such a dream! He is a very happy boy who loves everyone. He gets along with other dogs and cats, likes to play, and really is excited to get into his own permanent home. He enjoys car rides, playing either with other pugs or his human family, watching TV with them and all around is happy about life. He is around 10 years old and will be ready to join his permanent family soon.
Sid is such a handsome, loving boy! He really likes to cuddle and spend time with his foster family. He is in good health, but does have some arthritis in one leg so only very short walks for him. He prefers to spend his time cuddling with the family.
Sid gets along with his foster pug sister and tolerates the cat, but he is definitely more interested in his foster parents and their two older daughters and they all love him. He gets excited when the girls are coming home for the day!
Sid is completely house trained, and will be a great addition to the lucky family who adopts him.
Gracie thinks she is just a pup, not 10 years old, and we are starting to think she is younger than 10 also. This little sweetheart with a zest for life has quite a story. Gracie spent several years living chained up outside. Her owner was going to take her out in the woods and dump her, but luckily for her (and all of us who know her) a friend and Good Samaritan found out, talked him out of that, took her out of that harmful situation and she thankfully ended up in SPR. She has been spayed, other health issues addressed and is now a happy, healthy girl learning how to play and have fun with her foster family.
Gracie loves to spend time with her canine foster brother and sisters, tolerates the cat, loves her human fosters, she especially enjoys hanging out with her foster brother and dad in the shop. She has learned to "ring the bell" by the door to go out potty, loves to watch tv, and keep everyone company. Gracie is ready for her own permanent home in a house with a fenced yard and where someone who is home with her most of the time.
Vinnie (9) and Victor (7) are, according to their foster mom, pretty perfect pugs!! They have spent their whole life together and were with their former mom 24 hours a day until she passed. They are definitely lap dogs, wanting to be near or cuddling with their family all the time. Their foster mom says they both seem younger and have a wonderful zest for life!
Vinnie and Victor are playful, really get along, and like to play with their foster brothers and sisters. They have tried to get the cat to play with them, but she so far is not interested. They seem to love all people and animals.
Both boys are active, like to explore the yard, and like to climb - especially Vinnie who will make himself a bed on a dining room chair. They are house trained, but since losing their original home have had to work on marking. Their foster mom said they are much better now.
These two will be great in a family who want to add two cuddly loving, devoted boys to their family!
Bella is a darling, very versatile, charismatic and inquisitive 8 year old fawn pug who, despite her back legs not cooperating with her, gets around very well. She has a wheelchair she uses to go on walks and run around in the house and also can move around the house on her own (without her wheels) depending on the surface. She also has a car seat and loves to go for rides. Despite her legs not working the way she would like, Bella is house trained and lets you know when she needs to be taken outside to "do her business".
Bella loves to be a "lap dog", watching tv with a family member, or keeping them company while they read or just hold her and especially if they rub her tummy. Bella also loves her toys, likes to play with her favorite stuffed "babies".
She gets along with other dogs, and spends time following her foster brother around but mostly loves to cuddle. Because of her disability Bella needs to be in a family where someone works from home or is retired and there are no stairs for her to try and navigate.
Taco is very loving and cuddly, loves to play - acts like she is 3 not 9, and is completely house trained. She loves to be with her family and go places with them. She will be happy as the only pet but also has lived with other dogs before and will be fine with another pug or other small dog if it is not aggressive. She is ready to get settled in with the lucky family who gets to welcome her into their hearts and home.
