Please consider adopting a senior pug.
They will fill your life with love.
We have pugs available, but are no longer showing all of them on the website. See our featured senior pugs below.
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.
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.
Check out our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page. Most of your questions will be answered there.

Available Senior and Disabled Pugs
Precious is a 9 year old female who was surrendered by her owner because of a lifestyle change and was not home enough to care for her. Due to a past injury she has very limited use of her back legs, and diapers are a must because she does not have complete control of her bowels and bladder. Precious can still get around on her own a little but needs to be carried mostly. SPR provided her with a wheelchair, but she seems to be afraid of it, thinking it is chasing her. So she is much more comfortable being carried. Precious loves to sit on the couch and watch tv with her family, loves being carried around or just held, and would like to be taken in a stroller on walks.
Jackson is 9 years old and recently lost his vision. Even though he cannot see at all, he gets around very well and likes to explore his area. His foster mom said Jackson has had zero accidents in the house, which is great, considering he is mostly blind. He does like to explore and loves to be outside. He will go out and find a nice spot on the lawn to take a nap or just hang out. He also like to nap on the couch and will jump up and down on his own! He can hear more than we thought; especially hearing his name "Jax", clapping, bells, clicker, other dogs barking, food hitting the dish. He hears his foster mom when she says ,"step" (at stairs) or "wall" and he will avoid or step as appropriate. Jackson is a super sweet and mellow dog. He gets along great with other dogs, is really a love pug, and will be a great addition to any family who either works from home, is retired, or is home most of the time.
Fanny is a darling little pug packed with personality. She is about 12 years old, and was surrendered to us because of a change in circumstances and declining health of her owners. She is house-trained, and loves to spend her time enhancing the lives of her family with her love and attention. Fanny gets along with children, other dogs, and cannot wait to get settled in her new, permanent home.
