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.


Brock is our latest Puggle! He is 5 years old. He is a jumper and gets excited when he sees his “people.” Might be happy in a home where he is the only dog. Not good with kids. Continue reading

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 – 9 years old

Odie is an 9 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
