Diesel is a street smart six year old black pug. He was found wandering around and kindly taken to a vet who declared him a “hot mess”. His list of ailments was quite considerable! Despite his hardships Diesel is a loving, sweet boy who loves to go for car rides and hang out in the kitchen looking for falling snacks. He would do best getting all of the love in a house hold and will need two shots a day to manage his diabetes. Once he is able to manage some health issues he will be ready for adoption. Bring this sweet, wise boy into your family!
Available for Adoption
We are pugs needing to be rescued because we have lost our homes. If you have love to give to any of us, please contact PROS. Thank you for looking at us and trying to help us find a home to call our own!
Please note! PROS does not sell dogs, we adopt them out to compatible homes for an adoption fee of $300.00 for pugs over the age of 2 years old. Pugs under the age of two are $400.00 and Special Needs and Seniors over 10 years old are $100.00.
We do not place pugs on a first come, first served basis - instead, we try to match up the needs of the pugs with the desires and lifestyle of the adopting family.
PROS especially needs to find homes for our older pugs. Our 8 years and under pugs are very popular (for obvious reasons!) but if you have room in your heart, and on your sofa for an older, wiser pug to keep you warm, please fill out an application (or contact us if you have already been through the application process) and you will be making a little old pug man or pug lady very happy in the years when they need the most comfort and love.
Zira is a cute petite girl with adorable “Flying Nun” ears. She loves to play with her toys and chew on bully sticks. She gets along great with dogs, although she can be a bit bossy at first. She has done well with house manners under supervision.
Zira is looking for an active family that will play with her and take her places.
Pepsi is an adorable little madam! She is three years old, crate trained, house trained and knows some basic commands. She would be happiest with someone who is home more often as she gets a little nervous and loves company! She is a friendly girl with humans and dogs alike. She is headed to the vet for a palate trim shortly. Bring this adorable pug-peke into your family! She is house trained and is recovering from surgery for a palate trim to help her breath more normally.
Luigi is a real character - he spent the last few levels of his journey in the shelter before getting to the second to final round! He is a five year old fawn male. He is not neutered, but will be soon and has been doing well with marking (by not marking). He could also use some continued help with leash training. Luigi is waiting for his trip to the vet to be heartworm tested and microchipped. Help this fearless pup win the game of life by joining your family as his forever home!
I’m Hazel (a.k.a. Miss Muffet). I was found wandering, but a nice lady took me in and brought me to PROS. At my first health check, I discovered I’m a hot mess. I have critical ...untreated diabetes. The vet ordered up insulin for me right away. I have keyatones in my bladder, which may explain why I was so thin when I came in. I have cataracts in one eye and dry eye in the other. And to top it off, I have ear infections, too. The vet can’t even guess my age until some of my health issues are under control. I also have to be stabilized before they can spay me. My issues have gone on a long time without care. It is clear my previous owners dumped me.
I am starting to settle into my foster home. I’m a sweet girl, but due to my not so good past, it took me a few days to climb into my foster mommy’s lap. I’m learning the good places to be though, like the kitchen! I know, that’s SO un-pug like. I'm also house trained.
I have a long road ahead of me and a lot of medical expenses in the pipeline. If you would like to contribute to my care, please donate in my name. PROS promised me, unlike my previous owner, they will not give up on me. They are determined to give me the life I deserve.
Thank you to Judy Carlson in memory of Charlie Brown & Moe, Susan Pereira, Ursula Plumley, Wendy Hudman, Catherine Santos, Teresa Daughtery, Michelle Ingram, Ella Johnson, Leslie Sorenson, William Crisman and Sharon Vandagriff for your donations.
Happy is cute as a button! This five year old man was found as a stray and ended up in a shelter. After all he has been through he still wags his tail nonstop. He is housetrained and uses the doggie door at his foster home. His shots are up to date, he is heartworm negative and microchipped. He made so many friends at the shelter that he got kennel cough! He is now all better and ready to be neutered and a dental. This little guy would love to bring his happy, wagging tail into your home! Watch for me to be available.
We are Jazzy and Mac and we are PROS newest Dynamic Duo!! We are 5 and 7 years old and looking for our new forever home. Unfortunately our owner passed away and we had nowhere to go. We love each other SOOOO much and MUST stay together. We lived the last few months outside, so we are re-learning our indoor manners. Luckily we’re hanging out with the folks at Pride and Pedigree doggie daycare, and they are the BOMB at dog training and manners. So we know we are in good hands. We are a very sweet easy going pair. As you can see, we love cats too!! We even curl up with them. You know what they say... if one is good, two is better, right? So why not welcome a Pair O’ Pugs into your family!!! That’s twice the love and laughs of one pug!
If you think you can handle this much love and cuteness, please fill out an application for us today!
Hi! My name is Andrew the Cutie - Andy for short. As you can see by my photo, I am a very handsome 5 year old boy! I am very sweet-natured; love to cuddle; but am not clingy and anxious like some dogs who have lost their families. Every morning I wake up and demand a tummy rub, and then greet each member of my foster family with a morning kiss. I am fine with other dogs and like children. House-breaking is being worked on. Adjusting to a new environment is probably contributing to my occasional mistakes; and things should further improve after I am neutered. I am waiting until an ear infection clears up to get neutered. I do have a disability - I drag one foot. The exact cause is unclear, but it will be important for me to find a home where there are no slippery floors or many stairs.
Ideally, my new adoptive family can provide me with as much love and attention as I will offer them.
Hi! My name is REGINA. Three years ago I ended up in a shelter and was rescued by PROS, and was subsequently adopted by a wonderful lady whom I loved. Sadly, she recently died, leaving instructions with the neighbors to return me to PROS. I have been through quite a lot, and am hoping to find a quiet, loving home where all I have to do is sit on your lap and be your companion. I am 9 years old, up to date on shots, heartworm-negative, and spayed. Unfortunately, toward the end my owner was too sick to take good care of me, and I now have a bad bacterial skin infection, yeast infection, and ear infection, for which I am being treated. I will not be available for adoption until I am healthy again. My eyesight is poor, due to "dry eye", for which I will need eye drops (the can be pretty expensive) for the rest of my life.
I get around surprisingly well, despite my poor eyesight. I am housebroken and know how to use a doggy door. I also will use potty pads. I am in basically good health - once I get over these infections. I have been told I am quite a DIVA around other dogs. That, combined with my vision problems, make a a candidate for a home where I get to be an "only child", whose sole job is to love you and enjoy your loving me in return. Please find it in your heart to give me that home. I promise to be your best friend.
My name is Julio. My foster parents call me Felix because my foster brother is Oscar and together we are an Odd Couple! I'm a 4-7 yr. old neutered male who came from a shelter. I'm a little wobbly in the rear end and am on some medication to see if that will help me.
I love to go on walks, never pull on the leash. I do well at dog parks and meeting other dogs and humans. I travel well in the car. I love to be petted and scratched. If you hit the right spot I make little laughing noises. I do enjoy my meals and sometimes help Oscar finish his. I do not jump up on you or on the furniture. I will sit next to you on the couch but not to sure about being held or constrained. I bark at the neighbor's cat when he sets on the fence but not sure what I would do if we met face to face. At night I like to sleep on my bed next to yours, all cuddled up with my foster brother. He keeps me warm. I am a little possessive with my toys and treats. I know a few basic commands like sit and no. I do my business outside. I would like to have another dog in the house to be my playmate if possible!
Hi! Our names are Ickus (also known as Icky) and Oblina (also known as Miss Tiny), and we come as a package deal because Oblina is totally blind, and Icky is her "seeing eye dog". We were given up because our family moved out of the country and couldn't take us along.
I am a tiny little 9 year old blind pug girl who probably won't win any beauty pageants, but there is something absolutely adorable about me. I make the strangest grunting sounds when someone gives me a good back rub. I snore. My tongue sticks out. One of my eyes bulges and looks yucky. I am a hermaphrodite. I have assorted minor health issues, including seasonal allergies. I have memorized the layout of my foster home, but still do sustain injuries from bumping into things. I banged my head on the wall when I was following another dog (who failed to tell me he was going to turn). I trip over things that are left out of place; but I am a tough little girl and I try my best. Some people might think I am not the most desirable of pugs, but my foster family is crazy about me! I am indescribably endearing!
Now for me:
My name is Ickus (aka Icky), and I am an 8 year old fawn pug boy who is employed fulll time as Oblona's seeing eye dog and helper. I like to look after her and take care of her and lick her lovingly.
Unlike practically every other dog in the universe, I LOVE bath time! I like to be washed and groomed. I sit patiently like a good boy, and say - "Make me even more handsome than I already am"!I'm not that into cuddling with people, but when I am happy, I like to roll around and make silly noises. I love a good back-scratching. I am learning better manners: I have stopped jumping on everyone. Now I am working on not mouthing people when they pet me, and not running between people's legs. I had some strange baseball-sized grey patches on both hips when I first arrived at Pug Rescue; but they are now quarter-sized and nearly healed. I am a very adorable boy.
It will take a very special person or family to "take us on". Can you find it in your heart to adopt me and my blind sister?
