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

Male – 12 years old

My name is Frank and I am 12 years young. I am probably he quirkiest guy you will ever meet, so if you are a bit quirky too, we will make a wonderful pair!! I wear a belly band when I am in the house (I don’t fight it, I know it is a bad habit) and I need someone that will keep my yard clean (since I like to snack on the stuff out there). Ok, now that we have that out of the way…I am the biggest snuggler in the world and would love to share your bed with you at night. I love to watch TV….Animal Planet really gets me going! If you think that I might be the pug for you, please put Frank on your application. Continue reading
