Available for AdoptionWe 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. If you are looking for a mellow pal who wants to cuddle on the sofa rather than run laps around it, check them out!
Hi! My name is Suey; and I am a rare apricot-colored spayed 3 year old pug girl. It is thought that the apricot color comes from a mixed marriage between a pug and a corgi somewhere in my family history. I have been crated at night and most of the day before being turned in by my owner because of divorce, along with a pug boy named Jerry, also available for adoption.
Hi! My name is Zoey, and I am a 6 month old brindle pug girl puppy. Brindle refers to my rare and exotic coloring. It is thought that brindle pugs were crossed with Boston Terriers at some point in their past, in case you are a genealogy buff! I am very cute and playful. In fact, I want to play ALL THE TIME with humans, dogs or toys because I like to act silly! I was handed in to Pug Rescue after being passed around from family member to family member, each of whom was unable to keep me for various reasons. I have had a confusing childhood so far. I will still need help with housebreaking because of this. I am also looking for a home with an active family because I am very enthusiastic and like to be busy. I am healthy - up to date on shots, am microchipped and spayed. I promise to bring many years of fun to my new family - and I hope that family is YOU!
I'm Freida a 7 yr old active fawn lady. My owner no longer wanted me and was going to take me to a shelter but a really nice lady talked her into giving me to her. She tried to find me a home but that didn't happen so she gave me to PROS. I'm spayed, up to date on my shots, heartworm negative and microchipped. I prefer to be in a home with not too many animals. I love to play with toys and would like to have a person who is home a lot as I really want to follow my human around. I know how to sit on command and am willing to learn more commands. Would you be my human?
I was named Twiggy due to the way I look. I was a stray and ended up in a shelter. The shelter estimated my age at 10 yrs old, I don't have many teeth and I'm blind. As you can see I wasn't well taken care of since I am so skinny, I was after Twiggy the very skinny model. I am in a nice foster home and have two pug foster brothers. I'll be going to the vet soon. Please keep good thoughts for me to get healthy again.
Update May 3: Twiggy just went to the vet and had her health check she has cataracts due to her diabetes. She is now on insulin twice a day to get her back to somewhat normal. She should put on some weight and this should also help with her urinary incontinence.
My name is Casper. I'm believed to be a brindle but I have so much hair loss it's hard to tell. The vet thinks that I am under a year old; I think my dad is Bryon who came in with me. I had a skin scaping and it was found that I have sarcoptic mange. I really, really want my foster mom to cuddle me and I want to play with the other dogs in my foster home! I can see them but can't get near them. Watch to see me improve with treatment. I need some donations to help with my treatment, can you chip in?
Thank you to Amanda Blackketter, Kaitlan Maissen, Stephanie Olson, Tara Boyce, Kathy Hentges, Jeffrey Rodgers, Jason Burkett, Tara Boyce, Dawn Stephans, Lynn Berkeley, Sara Moore and Wendy Campbell for their donations towards my recovery.
UPDATE: Lookin' good! But he still has a skin infection so he goes back to the vet in another 3 weeks
I'm Bryon and as you can see I'm not in real good shape as my owner didn't take care of me. I came in with Casper and was brought to a shelter as my owner left me with a relative, but then never came back to get me. From my picture you can see that I am a brindle approximately 4-5 yr old. It is believed that I have sarcoptic mange which is contagious to other animals and sometimes to humans. The shelter gave me one treatment for the mange but I'm going to need more treatments. I so want to go play with the other pugs in my foster home! I will be going to a PROS vet soon for my next treatment. Watch for updates on me and my treatment and when I'll be available for adopton. Both Casper and I could use some donations to help pay for our treatment.
Thank you to Stephanie Olson, Tara Boyce, Kathy Hentges, Jeffrey Rodgers, Jason Burkett and Wendy Campbell for their donations towards my recovery.
Update: Bryon goes back to the vet on Monday and we hope he can go back to the vet in another week for neutering
Hi! For some reason, they call me Roly Poly Teddy Bear. OK, I admit I might be a little bit pudgy. I was rescued from the Hollister Shelter, where I had been dumped in their drop box. When I arrived at Pug Rescue weighing a mere 29.6 lbs.!!!! they mentioned the word "diet" and I immediately thought of that Jared guy on the SUBWAY ads, and thought "I can DO this." Well, I have yet to see a sandwich, but I have lost 2 lbs. in 2 weeks! I am only about 5 years old, but I have difficulty walking because of my "baby fat"! I am a real sweetheart, and once I am a bit more svelte, I will be available for adoption, and promise to be a wonderful pet.
Update: Teddy Bear is now down to 24 lbs from 29.7. He may have 3-4 more pounds to lose and we can now see his legs!
Hi I'm Ali, named after the great fighter, "Muhammad Ali" as I was fighting for my life due to heartworm. I'm believed to be about 3-4 yrs old and might have a bit of pug mix in me. I came from a shelter and PROS was contacted to take me in as I was unadoptable with heartworm. Well PROS took me in and thanks to your generous donations, I finished my heartworm treatment and I am more than ready to settle into my forever home. I'm now a lover, not a fighter! Love me!
Thank you to Dawn Cicero, Mary Bova, Anna Allen, Jann James, Amy Joseph, Jan and John Grover, Ashlee Marks, Kelly Knotek and Andrea Flaherty who donated to my treatment.
Hello! My name is Nancie. I'm an 8 year old, fawn, female Pug with one wish. I just want to find someone to love me. I'm a really sweet gal with a playful side. If there is one thing I am really good at it is making sure you always have me close enough to cuddle. I'm independent when it comes to other dogs. If they happen to be around I don't mind them much. When it comes to my manners, I'm quite the little lady. I can get through the night without any accidents and am nearly housebroken. If you are looking for a forever friend that is easy to please, that's me! All you have to do is brush me and I am as happy as can be. I had two pea size mast cell tumors which are being removed. I could use some donations to help pay for my surgery.
Thank you to Karen Franklin and Kendall Fisher for their donations.
Nice to meet you! My name is Beatrice. I'm a sweet, approx. 3 yr old fawn Pug with a wild side. I was a stray and ended up in the shelter.
My foster mom says I have two speeds, stop and full speed ahead. I like a lot of attention and can be bossy at times, but I've learned my lesson and I must admit my manners have come a long way. I'm a great companion who loves a good snuggle. I'll never ignore you. In fact, when you talk to me, I'll answer you back. I have a little weakness in my back legs, but life is too short to let it slow me down. Can I be your cuddle bug?
Hi! I am a 3 year old VERY healthy, VERY handsome, VERY active, VERY smart pug boy. And that is my unbiased opinion! Like all pugs, I love to EAT! I am blind in my right eye, so should avoid cats, very small children, or anything else that could injure my remaining eye. I would do best as an "only dog" since, although I have enjoyed the company of some girl dogs, as well as a neutered male - I have gotten into some arguments with other male dogs.
Although I am very sweet, I get possessive with food and with "my humans", and sometimes react aggressively. For this, and to work on a tendency to get " wound up", I've been going to obedience school, where I am a STAR! (told you I was SMART!) I am a very quick study in obedience school (told you I was smart!) I am hoping to find a new owner who will be able to give me lots of walks or hikes, as I am full of energy. My new owner should continue training classes or private lessons. After I graduate cum laude, I should provide you with many years of faithful and fun companionship.
