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.
Nina is a very playful girl, you would not know she is about twelve years old. No one has told her she is a senior citizen! Nina is curious, active, likes to play with other dogs, and most of all enjoy the company of her human family. She will be very happy with a family who is retired, or works from home. She is being surrendered because her owner has develped some ongoing health issues and can no longer give Nina the love and care she needs and is used to.
Adoption Pending! 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.

She is ready to add much joy to thelucky family who adopts her.
