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 Wrinkle!

We think he’s a Jack Russell mix, about 3-years-old, but he certainly is lacking the’ terrier-ness’. He is super sweet! He’s completely deaf but compensates very well for that. Foster mom is potty training him and he’s doing very well.

A few days on the antibiotics has made a big difference for him and the inflammation he had on his skin. He’s doing well in his foster home- getting along with his foster doggie brother. He went back to the vet recently and we are happy to report that his bacterial infection on his skin is all clear! He will continue treatment for Demodex to make sure it’s all gone, and then soon we will plan a neuter and dental. In the meantime, he is available for adoption! If interested visit please fill out an application.
