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 Bella Rose, A Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. She is 10 years old, spayed, and is in good physical health. She has a vet appointment this week for a check up.

This sweet girl came to us from Animal Control. Sadly this is not the first time she has been there. About 5 years ago Bella and over 30 other dogs were were seized from a home. They were living in horrendous conditions. Some of them ended up in rescue due to health and behavior, and some were able to be adopted out through Animal Control. Bella needed a haircut and a good bath, but was able to be adopted out through the shelter.

Due to changes in her family she has been returned, and the shelter opted to get her into rescue because of her history.


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 that 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 Tater and Tot! These adorable long-haired chihuahua brothers are ready to go to a new home! We want them to go together as they are very bonded.

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.
