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.

Georgia Belle #258- brindle female, ~12 years old, AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION

Hi Everybody! I am Georgia Belle #258 and I am so glad to be part of tbe BPR family. I went to the vet today and it is felt that I am 12+ old. But it is hard to believe I am that old. I am very active and like to investigate my surroundings. I do have a little problem with my back end but I get along just fine and can even get up on the couch. For my age, I am actually in good health. I do have ear infections, but they have been treated. I need a dental which I am having later this week. I have probably had a hard life, but that is all over now. And just look at my unique coloring - I am a brindle. I just need someone with enough love in their heart to let me love them. I am waiting for you!

Adoption fee: $159.00


Oliver #254- black male, ~9 years old AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION

Hi everyone!!! I’m Oliver! I just joined BPR and I’m so happy to be here. I had a great family, but they couldn’t take care of me anymore so they asked BPR to help. I’m a super sweet guy, 9 years old and am very laid back. I lost my back leg when I was a pup, but I get around pretty good without it! I currently have some issues with my skin, so my foster mom makes me wear this shirt sometimes!! I’m getting better everyday and can’t wait to meet my forever family! I’ll check in again soon!

Adoption fee: $291.50

Homer #244 and Spanky #245- male bonded pair, AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION

Hi! We're Homer(fawn) and Spanky(black). We are an 11 year old bonded pair of brothers who enjoy the simple things in life. My foster mom says we're no trouble because we tend to chill out most of the day and that we're pretty low maintenance. We enjoy sleeping and cuddling, getting a good brushing, and chewing on a bone from time to time. We currently live with two other pugs and get along fine. However, the first day it was a little upsetting because we didn't know what was going on so we got into a few spats until we realized our foster brother/sister were cool. Now, we share the house/bed and eat our meals together. We've also shown our foster mom that were smart and that we're housebroken. While we haven't really gone for many walks because it's been so hot outside, we don't seem to mind as we prefer the A/C anyways. :) 

While Spanky's showing a bit of gray on his face, and Homer moves around a little slower,  we still have a lot of spunk left in us and would love meet our furrever home.

We both have a couple of things left to do at the vet and then we will be ready for our new home.  If you have a comfy couch and want to be loved. Then we are the duo for you! 

Adoption fee: $318 (includes 6% Kentucky Sales Tax, effective 7/1/18)


Sampson #249 and Delilah #250- fawn male and female, bonded pair; ADOPTION PENDING 9/9/2018

Hi there!  We are Sampson(front-age 11) and Delilah(5).  We joined the BPR family today. As you can tell, we are quite attached to each other. We have spent most of our lives together being passed around from owner to owner. In the end of June, we were in a house fire and were thrown out a window to get us out of the fire. We have been in foster care with a really nice lady and finally made it to BPR. Delilah has a slight ear infection, but otherwise is in good shape. Sampson was dehydrated, but with some fluids and antibiotics, he will be good to go soon.   Sampson also has arthritis which causes a little trouble with his walking, but he does get around on his own.  We are both a little on the thin side, but we are sure we will be getting lots of food.  We are so glad to be in our foster home where we can be cared for. Give us a couple of weeks to recover and we will be looking for our home. We need to stay together because  Sampson can't see very well and Delilah helps him out. When it is time to do something, Delilah just puts her head on Sampson until he gets going -just like you see in the picture. We are really glad to be with BPR.

Fee for both pugs: $503.50 (includes 6% Kentucky Sales Tax, effective 7/1/18)


Chester #246- fawn male, ~12 years old, ADOPTION PENDING 9/11/2018

Hi! I am Chester and I just joined the BPR family this afternoon. I was found in the country and a nice lady kept me for a few weeks trying to help me out and find my family. It looks like I may have been dumped. BPR has already had me to the vet. The vet thinks I am about 12 years old. I have some trouble with my back end and walking. Ends up I have hip dysplasia. The volunteers told me I am a real trooper because I try to keep up. I like to be with you and will follow you everywhere. I like to cuddle and just be close. I don't have many teeth, but I still need a dental. I will be ready for you in a couple if weeks, so if you haven't already done it - get that application in!

Perry #243, fawn male, ~10 years old- AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION
Hi everybody. I am Perry, and I just joined the BPR family. My owner moved and left me tied up outside. It sure was hot. A neighbor gave me food and water until finally calling the shelter. Fortunately, the shelter knew about BPR. A really nice lady who works with the shelter took me home for the night and helped get me to BPR. They think I am about 10 years old. I have a bad ear infection. I am at the vet right now so you will learn more about me soon. I am really sweet and will be looking for my forever home soon!

Angel #235 (fawn female, 9 years old) and Benny (fawn male, 8 years old) #236 (bonded pair)- AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION

Hi everyone! We are happy to introduce Angel (top photo) and Benny as the newest additions to the BPR family. Their owner died and they were given to their vet who found us. Angel and Benny are a mother and son team and will stay together. They are in good health except for needing dentals and flu boosters. Angel is a major cuddler and she has a great deal of corneal scarring which has severely impaired her vision. She has a super navigator in her son, Benny. He takes good care of her. Benny is also very sweet and quite active. He loves to play. They are a super pair!

Adoption fee for both Angel and Benny: $583 (includes 6% Kentucky Sales Tax, effective 7/1/18)

Howie #153 - Fawn Male ~ 11 years old- AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION

Howie is 11 but you'd never know it - his fun and loving personality would lead you to believe he is more like 5!  He first came to BPR about 1 1/2 years ago. His parents were divorcing so they took him to a shelter. Fortunatley, the shelter contacted BPR.  Howie was adopted a few months later. About a year later he was returned to BPR by his adopter. Howie came to us with heartworms - unfortunately the heartworms were in an advanced stage and, despite the fact we've been able to get rid of them (a time consuming and expensive process), Howie's heart is permanently damaged.  Howie will be going to the vet for a follow-up visit soon - just to be sure everything is ok.  Howie is a snuggle Pug - he loves to curl up next to his foster daddy or in his favorite bed.  Because his heart is damaged, he cannot "go wild" - he needs to be calm whenever possible.  Howie would be a perfect for a single dog family who wants a dog that's a couch potato.  

Adoption fee: $159 (includes 6% Kentucky Sales Tax, effective 7/1/18)
