Available Pugs

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!

  • Sid
  • Sex: Male
  • Age: 12
  • Color: Black

Sid is a handsome boy! He is much more interested in his people than in other animals, so he will do OK with cats in the house - the kitten where he is staying keeps wanting to cuddle but he will get up and move away. He is completely house trained. Sid is a very sweet boy who wants to be in his own permanent home. More info coming soon!

  • Taco
  • Sex: Female
  • Age: 9
  • Color: Fawn

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.

  • Vinnie & Victor
  • Sex: Males
  • Age: 7 & 9
  • Color: Apricot & Fawn

Vinnie and Victor are a bonded pair. They are house trained and playful. More info coming soon!

  • Belladonna (Bella)
  • Sex: Female
  • Age: 8
  • Color: Fawn

Belladonna is a very charismatic 8 year old girl who enjoys going for walks in her wheelchair, playing with her toy "babies", watching tv, and "reading" with her person. Because of her disability, she needs someone who works from home or is retired. She is very cuddly, loves her family, very inquisitive, and will be a real joy to the lucky family who adopts her. Bella is good with other dogs, but prefers smaller dogs.

Bella is being given up because her owners had a change in circumstances and are gone almost 12 hours a day. She does have a little loss of bladder control when excited, meeting new people, etc. She started having trouble walking a year ago, and has her wheelchair and a special car seat. Bella has lots and lots of love to bring to her new family.

  • Gracie
  • Sex: Female
  • Age: 11
  • Color: Fawn

Gracie is an 11 year old female that was brought in the day after Thanksgiving. She lived outside on a chain for years. Her owner was going to take her to the woods and dump her, but a friend talked him out of it, and thankfully she ended up in Seattle Pug Rescue! She has multiple health issues making her higher risk for anesthesia then other pugs, so needs to be treated by a specialist to be spayed and have a mass on her rear leg removed. She is really a sweetheart, and we are trying to raise funds to go towards her treatment. If you are able to help you can make a donation of any size.

If you're interested in adopting, please fill out an application. She will be available for adoption after she has her surgery.


  • Rosie
  • Sex: Female
  • Age: 5
  • Color: Fawn

Rosie is a very loving young lady. She has great manners, is completely house trained, and is also good with kids. She is playful and loves to chase her ball. Rosie cannot be in a home with other dogs.
