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!

UPDATE 06/12/18- Trejo is now neutered and cleared for full activity with his legs!

TREJO – This little spitfire is about 6 months old and weighs about 3lbs! He has a tiny little body, great big ears, a great big personality, all stacked on long skinny legs.

He came to us with both front legs broken and required surgical repairs. You would never guess though because he runs around just like any other chihuahua puppy! Due to the bone plates in his legs though, his future home does need to be cautious with him jumping off of high places and being handled or playing roughly. The bone above the bone plate is now more susceptible to breaking.

He has been cleared by the surgeon! An ideal home for him will be one with other small dogs, or older calmer big dogs. Homes with older children may be considered as well on a case by case basis.

Remington…look at those ears!

UPDATE,06/24/18- Reports from his foster mama say that he is the most cuddly and sweet boy you can ever meet! However that doesn’t translate to dogs. Remy is a terrier and when with other dogs has trouble sharing toys, space, and food.

We very much want to find him a forever home with no other dogs. His foster mama does have allergies but is willing to hang onto him until we find him a home. If we found the perfect terrier savvy home we may consider that as an option as well.

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.

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


BOUNCE – UPDATE 06/24/18- This little girl is 8 years old, spayed, and sweet as can be. She came to us as a stray with a fractured leg/foot. After about a month in a cast she still has a limp and isn’t perfectly healed, but we don’t know how long she was injured for when we got her. For now she is happy and healthy and ready for her new home!

06/06/18- Bounce went in last week to have X-rays done and unfortunately the break hasn’t fully healed. 2 more weeks in a cast for this baby love. While she is still receiving medical, we are actively looking for a home for her. At about 7 she is still spunky and playful, but can’t wait to snuggle!

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?
