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’s ready to go!

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

Meet Buddy! He is a 10/11 year old Bichon. He is neutered, and is so sweet! We are still getting to know him, but so far he seems to do fine with men, women, and other dogs. He was terribly matted when he came in, but Vickie worked her magic and now he is clean and knot free!

Meet Dublin! He is a rough-coated Jack Russell Terrier of about 9 or 10 years old, but acts much younger. We can’t believe how awesome he is! He gets along with his foster siblings, is quiet and enjoys cuddle time on the couch. We’re still learning all the tricks he can do!

This handsome senior boy is AVAILABLE for adoption. If you are interested, please fill out our online application.

We have double the Buddy’s in rescue right now!

Our new Buddy, who we call Buddy 2,  is 10 years old and currently on medical hold while we explore the possibility of UTI.

UPDATE for Buddy number 2!    6/6/19

He went to the vet and we have found out he is diabetic. He will require twice daily insulin injections as well as periodic at home glucose testing. We will be taking applications for him, but he will still be on medical hold while we adjust his insulin dose.
