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!
Bella is a darling, very versatile, charismatic and inquisitive 8 year old fawn pug who, despite her back legs not cooperating with her, gets around very well. She has a wheelchair she uses to go on walks and run around in the house and also can move around the house on her own (without her wheels) depending on the surface. She also has a car seat and loves to go for rides. Despite her legs not working the way she would like, Bella is house trained and lets you know when she needs to be taken outside to "do her business".
Bella loves to be a "lap dog", watching tv with a family member, or keeping them company while they read or just hold her and especially if they rub her tummy. Bella also loves her toys, likes to play with her favorite stuffed "babies".
She gets along with other dogs, and spends time following her foster brother around but mostly loves to cuddle. Because of her disability Bella needs to be in a family where someone works from home or is retired and there are no stairs for her to try and navigate.
