Below are SOME of the pugs we have available for adoption. MANY OF OUR PUGS ARE NEVER LISTED ON THIS PAGE because their forever homes have been selected from applications already on file.

An application must be submitted to be considered for any rescue pug. If you are ready to adopt, please submit your application now. Applying does not obligate you to adopt from us; you have the right to refuse any or all pugs about which you are contacted.

If you do apply and would like to be considered for a pug listed on this page, please indicate the name of the pug on your application.

With occasional exceptions, all of our rescued pugs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and heartworm tested before placement.

Please also feel free to visit our Owner Referral page.

Female- 11 years old

Lucy is an 11 year old female that came to us because her owners could no longer care for her. She is a petite pug with so much love to give. She is huggable and loveable with the sweetest disposition. Lucy has some degenerative back disease that is common in pugs. This has caused her to have lost some feeling in her back legs. She can still walk fine, but occasionally loses her footing on tile or wood floors. The vet does not think this condition can be corrected by surgery, but only an MRI would confirm that. She knows how to use a dog door and occasionally has loss of bowel control due to the degenerative back disease. This has not been an issue in her foster home as it is a rare occasion and it is very easy to pick up. She is very embarrassed when this occurs as she cannot help it. Lucy is such a bright spot in her foster home, she needs a home where love is the ruling principle and where she can be your snuggle buddy. Please consider adopting Lucy, she will only enrich your life! Continue reading

Female – 1 year old

Hi! My name is Maple. I am a puggle – a pug and beagle mix. I am a sweet little bundle of love. I love my daily walks and playing fetch, and If you’re wanting to relax, I am a snuggler and will be happy to chill out with you. My ideal home would be one where I am the only dog. I am great both with adults and small children. I am quite small and squirrelly so a secure fence is a must if you have a yard. I am all up to date on my vaccinations and vet treatments. If you’re looking for a sweet, energetic, and super loving little dog, then write the name Maple on your adoption application! Continue reading

Male- 4 years old

Hi, I’m Bernie! I’m told I’m quite handsome. I do have one eye, but I have so much energy and love, you wouldn’t know the difference. I came to CPR because my previous family went on vacation and left me behind; I was living in the backyard for many months before the neighbors called CPR. I’m so thankful to CPR for all medical care provided to me since being rescued and my foster family (both furry and human). CPR doesn’t know much about me, but we estimate I’m four years old.

Male – 9 years old

My name is Atticus, my foster Mom calls me Atti and I think I am around 9 years old. I am much bigger than my foster pug sisters. I am told that I one of my parents was a pug and the other possibly a Husky since I have longer fur. I am a big boy weighing just over 30 lbs. I came from a not so nice place, where I lived outside for most of my life and suffered an accident where my heart is now pushed into my lungs causing me to pant and cough a lot. I have seen many doctors and they said I am going to be ok. I have to take pills with my meals but they help me feel better and cough less. Despite my hard life, I’m a very happy boy. I don’t have accidents in the house and love to be next to my foster parents and sisters all the time. I am good around kids and cats and walk well on a leash. I am looking for a family to love me and feed me treats!

Females – 10 years old

Hello! My name is Misty and I am the beautiful brindle one and the cute fawn is my sister, Chloe. We came to CPR after our owner passed away. We are both so appreciative of the care CPR has given us. We both get along great with other dogs, kids, and cats. We love walks, treats and snuggling with each other. One of my unique traits is that I love chewing on my foster daddy’s socks; they taste so good. Chloe is the shy one and I’m very outgoing. We complement each other nicely. We are best friends and prefer to be together as much as possible. CPR has done a great job of taking care of us with dental work and getting our vaccinations current. If you are looking for two sisters to melt your heart, then look no further. Thanks for looking and remember to put both Misty and Chloe on your application! Continue reading
