Our Adoption Process

The Adoption Process for getting one of our pugs has 7 steps to ensure that our beloved dogs are going to the best homes possible.  The first thing you must be aware of is that the typical wait time to adopt one of my pugs is anywhere between 6-24 months.  Each of our pugs is a member of our family, so we are very careful, slow, and deliberate in taking the necessary time to match them with a family that will be the best for them.  We want to ensure that they are going to a home and family that will love them and take great care of them forever. 

Many of the steps of the adoption process are conducted via email and postal mail so that both parties may have a written record of the information exchanged to refer back to as needed.  There is a method to this madness.  Please do not ask to omit or alter the order in which the adoption steps are presented.  

STEP 1: The Application

Complete and submit the Adoption Application on this page.  

STEP 2: Optional Title Rebates & Current Adoption Fees

After your application is reviewed, you will be emailed information regarding the Title Rebates and Adoption Fees.  After you review this and wish to proceed with the adoption, then you contact us via email.

STEP 3:  Review of the Draft of the Written Agreement

You will be emailed a draft of the Written Agreement to help you decide if you want to adopt one of our pugs.  The Written Agreement is designed to protect three entities:  you, us, and--most importantly--the dog.  It is designed to be a large part of the screening process by giving pause for thought on the responsibilities involved in dog ownership.  The copy you receive in Step 3 is only a blank draft for you to review.  Do NOT sign this blank copy.

This Written Agreement has been utilized for over 20 years and none of our pugs leave without this being agreed upon, signed, and notarized.  Please avoid simply agreeing to the terms of this contract just so you can get one of our dogs if you have no intentions of abiding by this agreement.  It is not worth it to me, and it would not be worth it to you. 

After you review the Written Agreement, you contact me via email so I may address any questions or concerns you might have about it.  When you understand the agreement and are comfortable with it, then you contact me again via email and we will arrange a date and time for an interview. 

STEP 4: The Interview

This one hour interview is designed for us to meet all persons residing in the household of the applicant(s) who wish to adopt one of our pugs.  This meeting provides you and us the opportunity to get to know each other a little better and ask more questions.  Applicants who live within a 3-hour driving radius from our home in the California Central Valley will visit with us and the dogs in person.  Applicants who live outside the 3-hour driving radius from our home in the California Central Valley may elect to interview via telephone call.  After the interview, you contact me for any remaining questions you might have.   No deposits are accepted at the interview.  No pugs are released at the interview. 

STEP 5:  Reference Check 

After you have completed the interview and have let me know that you have decided to pursue the adoption of one of our pugs, then I will contact your references. This is a reciprocal process, so feel free to ask for our references as well.

STEP 6:  Drawing Up the Written Agreements 

After both of your personal references have responded favorably, you will provide me with the information needed to type up two hard hard copies of the written agreement.  You will receive these two copies via USPS postal mail for you to initial, sign, have notarized, and return with your deposit.  Upon receipt of the signed and notarized written agreements and deposit, you will be officially placed on the waiting list.  The order of the waiting list depends upon the availability of the type of pug you wish to adopt and the postmark on the envelope in which you returned your written agreement and deposit.  If your puppy is under 16 weeks of age, you can begin visiting your puppy on a weekly basis after the puppies have had their first vaccination (at age 6 weeks).  Prior to the first vaccination, or if you are unable to visit with your puppy, you will be provided with weekly updates and photos of the puppies. 

STEP 7:  Transfer Appointment

The final step is getting your pug, which you will do on the date and time agreed upon for the transfer appointment in the written agreement.  Companion Pet puppies can usually begin to go to their new homes after their 3rd vaccination, at approximately 11 weeks of age.  Show Prospects can usually begin to go to their new homes after their OFA preliminary hip dysplasia consultation results come back, generally after 4 months of age.  During the 90 minute transfer appointment, I will provide you with and go over your personalized Pugs 101 binder of information on how to care for your pug, and share with you many helpful tips on feeding, bathing, training, and many other important topics.  After the transfer appointment I like to say that we are now "related by pug, not blood" since you will have joined our pug adoptive family.


For the safety of my dogs, I do not ship any pugs unattended in the cargo area of airplanes for any flights.  Please be advised that you will have to make arrangements to have your pug escorted by an adult to be ON-BOARD in the cabin area of the airplane if you live in an area that would require you to fly to the California Central Valley.  The closest airports are:

  • Stockton Metropolitan Airport (SCK), 17.5 miles
  • Oakland International Airport (OAK), 72.3 miles
  • Sacramento International Airport (SMF), 77.3 miles
  • Norman Y. Mineta San José International Airport (SJC), 77.5 miles
  • San Francisco International Airport (SFO), 90.5 miles
