Available Pugs

Please Note:
Our pugs are not located in one place; they are all over the Portland/Vancouver area in loving Foster Homes. They are not available for one-on-one meetings until you have completed the application process. At this time we are not accepting applications for a waitlist.

If you are interested in any of the below pugs, please review our Adoption Process page before applying. Please do not call our phone number with application related questions. All correspondence regarding your application will be done by email. If your email filter is set to exclusive you will need to check your junk and spam folders frequently so you do not miss updates on the status of your application.​
If you have not kept your current pets up to date on their medical care (including vaccinations, spay and neuter, and yearly wellness visits, your application will be automatically denied.

If you have applied to adopt previously, you do not need to fill out another application, please just email adoptions@pacificpugrescue.org and let them know of your interest.

Thank you for considering a rescued Pug!

Adoption prices are between $200-$800 and can vary depending on the age, health and medical treatment needed while under our care. We do take in dogs from Mexico and China and we are required to pay the transport costs for that. This may be added into the cost of the adoption. Please check the posting of the dog you are interested in to find out the cost.

Our adoption process includes completion of an adoption application, a home visit and a lifetime adoption contract. Adoptions are not done on a first come first serve basis. Pacific Pug Rescue is the companion animal's advocate and will select the most suitably matched home for the dog's general needs and the unique needs of each individual dog in our care. PPR requires all applicants to be courteous and respectful throughout the adoption process. We reserve the right to refuse service and adoption without explanation.

Buffalo 8yrs and Wang Zai 11yrs
Bonded Pair
Adoption Donation $600

Hello! I am Buffalo and I am here to introduce you to me and my bestie Wang Zai! We were surrendered to a pug rescue in Los Angeles, but then we were transferred here to find our home in the Pacific Northwest!

I am sometimes referred to as a "big baby"...my only goal in life is to get as close as possible to you and follow you everywhere...it is my only job! I am very mellow and happy to just hang out with you all the time. Toys...no thank you, walks...Ok but can we snuggle afterwards? I will gently use my paw to remind you to touch me if you forget.

My buddy Wang Zai is the exact opposite of me, he is what we refer to as a "character".Wang Zai is older than me and blind, but he acts young and is full of energy and mischief! Even though Wang Zai is blind, he bulldozes into any situation and is not worried at all about the fact that he cannot see. Because of this it will be important any obstacles such as stairs or decks are blocked and kept safe, otherwise he will hurt himself.
He loves stuffies and he loves to play. He is always up for some adventure and really loves to go for walks.

We both are healthy guys and don't need any medications. We are crate trained and like being in a large crate together. Our potty training needs a bit more work, so we will need someone dedicated to being consistent and patient with us. We would be the perfect Yin and Yang that you are looking for in your life!
