A little about our fees - 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.

Adoption Fee Schedule:

Pugs under 1 Year Old:  $325 + $30 Flu Vaccine Surcharge**

Pugs 1 - 6 Years Old:  $275 + $30 Flu Vaccine Surcharge**

Pugs 7 - 9 Years Old:  $225 + $30 Flu Vaccine Surcharge**

Pugs 10 Years Old and Over:  $100 + $30 Flu Vaccine Surcharge**

*Please note that we often don't know exactly how old the Pugs are.  We use our Vet's expert opinion to determine approximate age in these scenarios.

*Please Note:  It will be your responsibility to travel to pick up your Pug.  Transport assistance may be arranged if resources are available.

**Our adoption fees cover only a small portion of our medical expenses.  Due to rise in canine influenza cases,  and out of an abundance of caution, we've opted to vaccinate all incoming Pugs for canine influenza.  The flu vaccine surcharge covers the cost of the first vaccination - a booster vaccination is due within 4 weeks of the first vaccination.  Please ensure you obtain the booster vaccination within the required timeframe and vaccinate your Pug as necessary to help prevent a possible illness.

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.

It is our privilege to announce a very special pug, Mr. Otis!!! He is 11 and has earned the special position of being our 200TH RESCUE! He is a little slow, but does get around.

Victor- AVAILABLE for adoption (male puggle)

BPR has been working quietly for many months with law enforcement officials and a prosecutor in a publicized animal abuse case in Kentucky, and has had an abused Pug mix in our version of canine "Witness Protection" during that time. This rescued animal is recovering nicely AND, we just learned that the person who abused the dog has pled guilty. This precious boy is now available for adoption. 

We would like you to meet Victor. He was named this because when he landed in our arms he had a huge victory. He is a 2 year old puggle and a wonderful little boy. He has a tendency to be a little suspicious of some people due to his background, but he is improving in this. He is adventurous  and wants to be involved in everything. He wants to be right next to you.  He loves walks, rides, hikes - everything. He has some bad habits like fighting over toys and he has some dominance issues when over stimulated.  His forever home needs to know he must be rewarded for good behavior and sometimes ignore the bad.   It would be great if he was with a bigger dog.  He loves to be with other dogs. He is amazing in that he has recovered so well after growing up in an abusive situation. Do you think you could find room in your heart and on your couch for Victor? Just look in those loving eyes!

Roxy #178- AVAILABLE for adoption
Fawn Female, 8 years old
Bio: Here is Ms Roxi!! She has been through a lot. Roxi had her eyes removed several weeks ago due to constant pain she was feeling in her eyes. She was already blind before her surgery. Roxi has been healing well! She is such a happy girl. We did get pretty good news about her pathology for a mast cell in her leg. She is in stage 2, but there were good borders and things look optimistic. She was given a 70 month life expectancy. That's good news considering she is 8. Roxi is such a trooper and such a love bug.
