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 Gator! He is waiting for his forever family. He is about 7 years old and a bit shy but a great cuddle bug.

Gator has been learning to play with toys and will be a great addition to any family! Could he be the one for you?

Meet Tiki! He is a 2 1/2 year old neutered chihuahua. He came from a loving home, but due to the families circumstances, it is no longer the right place for him.
He has lived with big dogs and little dogs and does great. We don’t know about cats. We will be looking for a home without small children as they stress him out and he tends to be wary of men.

He would be so happy to have a home the wants to do nothing but spoil him rotten! If you think he is for you, click on the pawprint above and fill out an application!


Meet Keko! This 6-yr-old beauty is looking for a home that will provide her with lots of playtime and cuddles! No small children or dogs.

She would love a place where an energetic human can take her for walks.

They both love to play, Tot is shy until he gets to know you, Tater wants to snuggle all day long.


Here’s Slugger! Slugger is a chihuahua mix that isn’t 3 lbs soaking wet. He is shy at first, but warms up quickly. He loves to snuggle, and sleeping next to you is his favorite thing.
