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.
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!
Bunny the pug and Hector the chihuaha are both 10 years old and very bonded. The two were found together and it is obvious they count on each other and must be adopted together.
Bunny loves her toys, racing around the house, cuddling with Hector in their bed, and getting loves from people.
Hector is a little more adventuresome, and outside and will sniff and explore. Hector loves to burrow under their blanket in their bed, and Bunny likes to lay on top of the blanket he is under.
This bonded pair will be a loving addition to your family!
Oliver is an 8 year old bundle of love. He is such a charming boy, and everyone who meets him falls in love. He loves to "talk" to whomever will listen. He is very attached to his ball and loves to play fetch. His back legs do not always work well, but he gets around and is pretty fast. He is house trained, but does not always know he has to poo, so there are some surprises there. He has no problem with urinary incontinence.
Oliver gets along with and loves everyone - children and adults. He is good with other dogs and basically ignores cats. He is cuddly, loving, a good conversationalist, and will be a great addition to the lucky family who adopts him.
Adopted! Zelda is 2 years old and is quite an adorable little girl. She is a pug with a medical challenge of idiopathic epilepsy, which she is being treated for. But Zelda takes every day in stride. She is house trained, somewhat active and very sociable. Zelda does very well with other dogs and childeren, and merely tolerates cats. Due to her medical condition she should be in a home where her loving owner is present most of the time, and ideally with other dogs to play with. Zelda may exhibit anxiety when in a new environment and pace in circles. With a little time and encouragement, she should settle in just fine with her new family.
Zelda loves to hang out in the yard or go on short walks. She is also very happy to be in the house and snuggle in any available lap. Zelda does love her food and will need to have her portions controlled, no matter how hard she tries to tell you otherwise.
Over all, Zelda is a very sweet, loving, and fun little lady.
