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 – 7 years old

Meet Lady! She is healthy, smart, agile & energetic. She barks or gets very excited when you come home, if there’s a knock at the door, if she spots another animal, or if she sees her walking harness/leash. She should always be kept on a leash when out as she will tear after a bigger dog barking. Shes all bark, no bite. She gets anxious in crowds, & around new people, but otherwise she’s pretty quiet. She likes to follow you around the house, but if you’re just hanging out, she’ll generally lay with you or in the sun. Continue reading

Male – 1 year old

Hi! I’m Mugsley – I am a Chug (part Pug, part Chihuahua) I weigh in at 15 lbs, I’m called a beautiful brindle! I have a sweet face that is eager to learn and please! I think I am a big dog! I am about a year old and my foster mommy says I am still learning how to be my best Chug – whatever that means, I think I’m already my best Chug. I’m young, I can’t help it!!! I love to play with my foster brother who’s a big golden retriever, but I really love curling up with “the ladies”(my foster sisters)! Continue reading

Male – 1 year old

Lenny has a really big heart, he loves attention and doesn’t mind other dogs. He gets along great with kids and babies. He does have a lot of spring in his step and can jump gates, but he is learning and doing better. He doesn’t like taking baths but will tolerate them. He has A LOT of energy. He needs a family with a yard and can give him attention. Continue reading


Elsey is a rambunctious puggle! Even though she is 9 year old, she does not show her age. She has lots of energy and enjoys morning and evening walks. She also likes chewing on a bone, which will keep her quiet when new people come around or in the mornings. She generally gets along with other dogs (although she may snap at when first meeting another dog). She loves to snuggle and cuddle, on the couch or in bed if allowed. She has previously been let out every 2 hours, so she might need a little work with being alone for longer times and not peeing, although crates seem to work well. Continue reading

Male – 8 years old

Odie is an 8 year old Puggle. He is a sweet boy who loves nothing more than to cuddle up with you on the couch. He is housebroken, leash trained, is fairly well behaved and rides great in cars. Odie definitely loves food and will do anything to get at it, but listens when he is told not to do something. Odie would do well with a fenced yard, as he loves to spend time outside. He has a history of mild seizures but is on daily medication to prevent them and we have not seen any to date. Continue reading
