Pugs 7 - 9 Years Old:  $275

Please Note:

  • Our expenses average 4 times the amount of the adoption fee per dog - meaning we have to generate $3.00 in donations for every $1.00 in adoption fees. 
  • We are an all-volunteer organization that functions only on the money we raise through donations and adoption fees - we promise to spend the money we raise in a responsible manner and to spend it to help the Pugs.
  • We often don't know exactly how old the Pugs are.  We use our Vet's expert opinion to determine approximate age in these scenario
  • It will be your responsibility to travel to pick up your Pug.  Transport assistance may be arranged if resources are available.
  • Please understand that we sometimes have a waiting list of applicants.  We compare incoming Pugs to the needs of previously approved adopters on our waiting list and offer incoming Pugs to those adopters first.  Even if there isn't a Pug that is perfect for your now, we encourage you to complete an application so you'll be approved and ready to go when the "perfect pug" comes along.

Ollie #233- fawn male, 11 years old; Medical Hold

Good morning! I am Ollie and I just joined BPR on Saturday. My foster didn't waste anytime with me. She picked me up, took me for a bath and then straight to the vet. BPR was told I was 11, but the vet thinks I am a little on the older side. My teeth are real bad and I need neutered. I also have some bad arthritis. I am getting all fixed up this week and then will be ready for my forever home to find me. I am really sweet and get along with other dogs. I just need a good place to cuddle. I am sure glad to be here!

Adoption fee: $150

Beasty #220 (right) and Frisco #221 (fawn males)- Available for adoption

Beastie and Frisco are a dynamic duo.   Beasty is 9 and Frisco is 7. They are both in good health. Frisco has a lot of scarring on his corneas from dry eye and will always need to be treated for this. He uses an eye ointment 2x daily. His vision is not the best.  Beastie is a little overweight and is on a diet!  They are crate trained and walk well on a leash. They get along with adults, kids and other dogs. They love attention and easily attract it. They do have accidents occasionally in the house, but a watchful eye and routine have almost eliminated this issue.  Both Beastie and Frisco are "magnet Pugs" - they love to be close to a human!  Their favorite activities are eating , making a nest in their beds, and snuggling up to their owner on the couch!

Beastie and Frisco are a bonded pair - they love each other and must be adopted together.   They have been together for 7 years. If you want to be smothered in pug love, then these two are for you!!!

Fee is $425

Ollie #217, 8 year old fawn male- Medical Hold

Who's a pretty boy? Well, obviously I am! I am Ollie and I am the first rescue for BPR this year. I am 8 years old and here's my story. My family took me to the vet because they knew something was wrong. I was diagnosed as diabetic. My family could not provide the care I needed, so a wonderful vet tech asked if they would give me to her so she could find a rescue. My family really loved me and knew it was best for me, so here I am! I am super sweet and get along with other dogs. I like toys and attention. BPR will get me regulated and then I will be ready for my forever home. You will learn more about me soon!

Howie #153 - Fawn Male ~ 11 years old- Available for Adoption

Adoption fee:  $150

Howie came to us with Heartworms and has currently completed his final treatment.  He has to be on bed-rest for 30 days and then he can have his much needed Dental Exam and Cleaning.  Howie is a wonderful little boy - he likes to eat alone, but in-general gets along well with the other Pugs.  Sometimes he gets a little grumpy and snaps at other dogs, as a result, he may not be a perfect fit for  a home with small children.  He has very few accidents in the house and his favorite activity is getting his belly rubbed and napping on the sofa!

Chico #211: fawn male, 7 years old, AVAILABLE for adoption

Adoption fee: $275

Hi everyone, I’m Chico and I am around 7 years old. I’ve had a bit of a rough past but I’m doing much better since I’ve joined BPR. They don’t know a lot about what happened to me before I came here, but BPR understands things weren’t always great for me. I was with my first family for most of my life and then was passed around a bit. I spent a lot of time in a garage by myself so that got me a little confused with some of  my house manners.  I can be slow to trust people, especially men, and I’m not a fan of being corrected, but I really want to please.  I’m with a great foster family who are really patient with me. They are helping me learn to trust and all I want is to be near my people.  I know there is a special forever family out there who is willing to help me be the best pug I can be, and I can’t wait to meet you!
