Adoption Fee Schedule:
Pugs under 1 Year Old:  $325
Pugs 1 - 6 Years Old:  $275
Pugs 7 - 9 Years Old:  $225
Pugs 10 Years Old and Over:  $100

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.

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.

*Note:  Please be sure to clear your cache to make sure you are seeing the updated list of adoptable pugs. We've had reports that this page displays the same information you viewed the last time you visited if it's not updated. Here are directions on how to clear your cache.

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.

Molly- ADOPTION PENDING 7/18/2017

If you are looking for a loving, devoted, and wonderful girl, then you are looking for me. I may be 11 years old, but that just means I know how to love you even better.  I came to BPR from a shelter because my owner couldn't take care of me anymore. I was so overweight that I had trouble walking, but that is no longer the case. My foster mom has been working with me and had me on a strict diet. I love to snuggle and sleep with you. I have excellent hose manners and just need someone of my own to love. Do you think you might have room in your heart for me? 

Adoption fee: $ 100


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!


Cloud- AVAILABLE  for adoption (fawn male, ~8 years old)

Hi everyone! I am Cloud and I came to BPR from some very nice people who got me out of a shelter. I was really skinny and my skin was in bad shape, but all that has changed. The people took me to a vet and then surrendered me to BPR. They are a military family and were getting ready to move, so they couldn't keep me. They were just trying to help me out. My foster has helped me get well and I am ready for my forever home. I am very sweet, housebroken, crate trained and a very good boy. Do you think there might be room on your couch for me? 

Adoption fee: $225
