Available Pugs

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.

Adoption fees range from $50 to $525, depending on age and health of the pug.

We are ONLY accepting applications for senior pugs and those with medical conditions. If you are interested in adopting one of our senior or special needs pugs below, please send an email to rescue@seattlepugs.com.

Shelby is about 10 years old and is very easy going and charming. She was rescued from an overcrowded home by a good Samaritan. She is housetrained, loves car rides, and likes to be with her people. She is great with kids and other dogs. Shelby is looking for a home where she can spend time cuddling and hanging out with her family, so preferably a home where someone is there most of the time. She is ready to add much joy to thelucky family who adopts her.

Adoption Pending! Stella is about 8 years old and has had a rough go. Her owner died and she's been shuffled around to a few foster homes. She is sweet and loving, cheerfully greeting her foster parents when they return from outings, sleeping at their feet while they work at their desks, and snuggling next to them while they sit on the sofa. Stella has soft fur and loves to have her tummy rubbed.

Like many rescues, she does have an issue and hers is odd but quite manageable. She originally lived with two other dogs, but does not want to share her home with others now and would be happiest as an only. Stella dislikes all non-pug dogs (and cats), big or small. She will lunge at any non-pug who visits her home, walks by too close when on a leash, or she can see through a fence. Stella will require vigilance to keep her out of trouble. She would do best in a condo, where she cannot see other animals.

While Stella is unusual for a pug in terms of her sociability with other dogs, she is a sweetie with a kind soul and will be perfect for someone looking for a loyal and fun companion. She loves to be with her human family, and is very affectionate with them. She will do best in a home with no young children, but does great with older children and adults.

Adoption Pending! Sanchez is 12 and a sweetheart. He is very active and playful, and will bring toys to play with and bark at the door when visitors arrive. He will suggle and lay on his side for belly rubs, and is generally a sweet, happy boy. He gets along well with all of his foster dogs, and is truly a joy to have as company for the whole household.

He knows how to use the doggie door and has never had an accident in the house. His foster is working on getting a little weight off of him, and that hasn't been a problem considering how active he is. His ideal home would be a place with minimal stairs and hardwood, since his hind legs don't want to move as quickly as he does. All in all, his playful, sweet nature makes him a perfect addition to any home.

Adopted! Mo is a very handsome boy of 10 who loves everyone, is really a cuddle bug, and loves being able to get around in his wheelchair. He can take a few steps on his own to get a drink, his special toy (which he loves!), or something close, if his foster hasn't gotten it for him quickly enough. He can be in a wheelchair for short periods throught the day, alternating with time out of the chair. He is really a character. He would do best in a home with minimal stairs and someone there most of the time.
