People presenting themselves as candidates to adopt a pug through the B.P.D.C. will go on a waiting list. They will need to fill out a request form. This form will ask for information on the family situation and will give you a chance to indicate preferences (sex, color, etc). As soon as the Welfare Department knows of a pug looking for a new home, the received forms will be checked and new candidate parents will be contacted. Once the pug has been replaced, the adoption parents will regularly be contacted by one of our Welfare responsibles to find out how everything is going and to help with possible problems. Of course all board members can be contacted at any time by all our members with queries.
Adopted pugs have the very typical feature of showing you, in different ways, how grateful they are to you. Of course, in the beginning, some points need to be considered. These pugs are being taken away from their familiar environment and do not understand what is happening to them, causing some minor problems as separation anxiety, marking of territory, conflicts between males, …. But these problems disappear as soon as the pug realizes this is his (new) home.
Adopting a pug in distress is completely free of charge. The club’s only request to adoption parents is to become and stay member of the B.P.D.C. The small membership fee does not outweigh the love and gratitude received by a welfare pug. Welfare pugs can NEVER be resold or given away! Nor is breeding allowed with a welfare pug. If, for whatever reason, you cannot take care any longer of your adoption pug, you need to contact the Welfare Department. They will look for a new home.
If you wish to support our pugs in need, gifts are always welcome and can be transfered to our
