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!

This is Izzy. She is a 1-2 year old Maltese mix. She still needs to be spayed, but is up to date in shots and ready for her forever home! Please fill out an application if interested.


Here’s Kobe!! This sweet Boston might be 10-years-old, but he still has plenty of energy to go around! If you are interested in this handsome senior please fill out an application.


Introducing Butter!

This little guy is 8-10 weeks old. He is some kind of retriever mix who originally went to the shelter as a stray. He is going to need an umbilical hernia repaired as well as puppy shots. He may need a foster home. We would be looking for someone able to keep him active and work on potty training.

If you are interested in either fostering or adopting, or donating to his medical care, please contact us.
