Available Friends

Our ‘friends’ are all dogs other than pugs. When the Polar Pug Rescue organization first began we were a rescue for the Pug breed only. It became clear to us that we had a lot of love and help to give and decided in 2009 to help other small dogs also. We have a wonderful working relationship with Anchorage Animal Care and Control. When they are unable to provide behavioral or medical assistance to the dogs in their care, they seek the help of rescue organizations like ours. It’s these dogs that come to us that we call our ‘friends’!



Meet Eddie! He is a 10-year-old min-pin mix. He will best fit into a home that is low energy. Probably without children or large dogs. He will be receiving a dental this Friday and then he’s ready to go!

If you are interested in giving this boy a forever home, please fill out an application!

Trejo – this little guy is only 5 months old! He is very sweet, but has a long road ahead of him. He had surgery for his broken legs. He will be on medical hold for a bit while we get him all figured out.

UPDATE: Trejo is 2 weeks past surgery and doing great! The swelling has gone down and he is using his legs just fine.

Remington…look at those ears!

Remington is a 7yo neutered Jack Russell Terrier. He is still very energetic, and loves his tennis balls (tries to carry 2 at once!). He does have a history of seizures which seem to be controlled with phenobarbital, a medication he will be on for the rest of his life. He gets along well with other dogs, and his level of potty training is unsure.

If you think he may be his forever home, please fill out an application.


Sweet little Bounce is still waiting for her home! An update on her medical…

In addition to having a dental with 13 teeth pulled, she had a fracture in her foot that required a cast. She has about 2 more weeks left before she gets it off, but it hasn’t stopped her one bit!

While she does really well with other dogs, she can be a bit controlling in the beginning. She settles in quickly though and is sweet and playful. This little love is more than ready for her fur-ever home…could it be you?
