Ralph is a cheeky chap...
He loves to potter about and check out this and that...
Soft toys Ralph things are great fun...
Throwing them around and even better still having a tug of war with someone....
Cuddles for this chap are adored...
And a walkie a day so that he doesn't get unfit or bored...
Snuggling up with a puggy friend...
He loves to sit on the couch watching tv when the day comes to an end...
Ralph has learnt some manners in Pug Rescue's care...
And had quite a few baths and brushes losing lots of hair...
He has a thick double coat...
So his forever home will need to understand he needs regular brushes and even high pressured air blow outs at the groomers to keep him a happy bloke....
Ralph requires a warm indoor bed and access to inside his home 24/7 via a doggy door.
Ralph is not suitable for a home with cats, small animals or birds.
Ralph is not suited to high density living (small backyards/houses/units/apartments with close neighbours)
Ralph is not suitable to be placed as a single pug or with another male pug. We are sure you don't want Ralph to be distressed or two boys peeing and fighting eachother :)
Ralph is seeking a forever home that has a suitable female pug as a companion.
Please don't ask for Ralph to be placed as a single pug, male pug or with an unsuitable aged female pug.
Ralph is fine with dog friendly children of 10+ years.

Please visit our website and read our 'is a pug for you' page before you consider applying to adopt Ralph. www.pugrescue.org.au
All potential adopters must complete our 'adoption application' form. If we feel that one of our pugs needs suit the lifestyle of a potential adopter we then conduct a phone interview and then a follow up house and yard check.
Please be patient, it may take a few days but we will get back to you. We have many pugs to care for and are staffed by only a very small group of unpaid dedicated volunteers.
*We are located in Victoria, Australia.
**Our pugs are not available for interstate or overseas adoption. Please do not ask as the answer will always be no.
****We do not have a shelter or kennels, with all of our pugs fostered in private volunteers homes.
Suitable applicants will be contacted by a PUG RESCUE & ADOPTION VICTORIA INC. volunteer 10 to 14 days after their submission of adoption application via email and undergo a phone interview.
On completion of a successful phone interview a meet and greet including house and yard check will be arranged where a PUG RESCUE & ADOPTION VICTORIA INC. volunteer will visit a potential adopters home with the rescue pug that has been applied for. These house checks and meet and greets generally last an hour to an hour and a half and the rescue pug then returns to their PUG RESCUE & ADOPTION VICTORIA INC. foster home with our volunteer and will not be left at a potential adopters home.
A decision to go ahead with an Adoption with a two week trial period will occur within 48 hours of a house check and meet and greet with both the potential adopter and PUG RESCUE & ADOPTION VICTORIA INC. agreeing to an adoption occurring.
PUG RESCUE & ADOPTION VICTORIA INC. reserves the right to not progress to the adoption stage if the house check and meet and greet indicates a potential home is not suitable for the rescue pug in question.
**All adoptions occur through a process of application; which includes questionnaires, telephone conversations and house/property checks.
Unfortunately not all applicants will be able to adopt one of our rescue pugs as we are very fussy to whom our pugs are rehomed to.
Our main priority is making sure every pug is perfectly matched to each new home.
We do not adopt outside the state of Victoria, Australia.
