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.

Bonded Pair – 8 & 11 years old

Frog: Hi, I’m Frog. I got my name because of my very long tongue. I came to CPR with my best friend Diamond aftefrogr our owner couldn’t take care of us anymore. I have no teeth and all heart. Even though I have no teeth, I only like dry dog food and I slurp on jerky treats! I am the best snuggler; I love to be under the covers with you! My foster family is working with me to walk better on a leash; I like to pull a lot and it takes me about 20-30 minutes to settle down, but I still pull. I have lots of energy, so I do great on long walks. I love to look out the window and keep an eye out for whatever is walking by, barking to let folks know this is my house. I am house trained and crate-trained; tell me to get in my home and I will get in my crate. I will whine and bark initially, but then I will calm down once you have left. Thank you for looking and remember to put Frog and Diamond on your application.

Male – 1.5 years old

Mr. G is a 1 ½ year old Chug, a Chihuahua-Pug mix. If you ever wanted an affectionate cuddler, Mr. G is it! Mr. G is very sweet and gives hugs. He would prefer nothing more than to sit on your lap and snuggle. Mr. G LOVES women, children, other dogs (big and small), and cats! However, Mr. G is not a fan of men and would prefer to be in a home free of adult males. He tends to get nervous with too much human physical activity (like children wrestling!) and will bark and become afraid. Therefore a calmer home would be the best environment for Mr. G. Mr. G is a healthy boy! He was neutered when he entered CPR and has no other health concerns. He enjoys backyard time and likes to expend some energy running circles in the grass. Mr. G occasionally marked in his foster parents home until he was neutered. The neuter seems to have solved the problem. However, he will piddle a little if he becomes extremely afraid. Mr. G is kennel trained and enjoys having his own space to eat and sleep. Mr. G likes to go on walks and is still trying to figure out the leash that seems to follow him wherever he goes. But, he is a smart boy and picks up commands quickly. Mr. G is a big lover and would be a loyal companion. Continue reading
