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.

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

Beasty and Frisco are a dynamic duo. They came to BPR as an owner surrender. 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 ointment 2x daily. His vision is not the best. They are crate trained and walk well on a leash. They get along with kids and other adults. They love attention and easily attract it. They do have accidents occassionally in the house, but a watchful eye and routine has been helping with this.

Ideally these two will find a home where they can stay 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

Tank #219- ~8 years old, fawn male, Adoption pending 3/6/2018

Adoption Fee: $275

Hi I’m Tank but my foster mom calls me “Tanky-poo”. I’m a good little man. It didn’t take me long to settle into my temporary home as I’m already comfortable at letting my true self shine. I currently live with my foster dog brother and we get along great! I’m potty trained and whine if I have to go outside or sometimes I’ll even sit by the door to let you know. My foster mom has been crate training me and I’ve even gotten to the point where I go in there on my own to sleep! I really enjoy going for walks around the neighborhood and chilling on the couch. However, my favorite thing is FOOD! If you like to cook, I’ll be your best friend. Sometimes, I like my food so much that I get protective of it. But that’s usually just when I’m chewing on a bone (which I’m still trying to figure out).

I really like meeting new people and appear to have a soft spot for men. Sometimes when people come over and then they leave, I start barking because I want them to stay longer but my mom is working with me on how to be polite when people have to go home. I also like going for car rides but I may need to be harnessed into a seatbelt for safety because I get so excited.

Overall, I have a great personality and my foster mom already loves me so much! She has thought about keeping me but really wants another family to enjoy me and my cute personality. Is that you?


Ollie #217, 8 year old fawn male- Available for adoption

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!

Chase #222- fawn male, 3 years old- Adoption pending 3/4/2018

Howie #153 - Fawn Male ~ 11 years old- Adoption Pending 3/5/2018

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!
