NW Pugs! Heads South to The PUG CRAWL in Portland!




Join us for an adventure to Portland for

The 13th Annual PUG CRAWL Benefiting Oregon Humane Society!

This event is on Sunday, May 19 from 1-4. A few of us are leaving Saturday and staying in Lake Oswego at Residence Inn Portland South/Lake Oswego until Monday. Come for the weekend or just for the event. We are meeting with our pugs at Portland Brewery Company at 12:00 for lunch, please join us!

This year's theme is “Night of the Living Pugs”. Zombie pugs will smother you with love. Be afraid; be very afraid. They're coming for you! The highlight of the day is the Parade of Pugs, where, if past tradition holds, almost 100 costumed pugs will walk the runway and compete. The winner will be chosen based on the creativity and originality of his or her costume.

There will be live music, sandwiches, beer, and other refreshments. All well-behaved dogs on leash are welcome (the costume parade, however, is open only to pugs, pug-mixes and their human companions).

The festivities take place from 1 pm - 4 pm outside Portland Brewing Company Taproom in Northwest Portland.

A $10 donation to the Oregon Humane Society is requested for admission. 100% of proceeds go to help the animals at OHS.

If you come for the weekend we will go tax free shopping at a local pet supply store with our pugs, venture to a highly rated dog park and much more!

    Dinner at the Tin Shed Garden Cafe with our pugs was a blast! The pugs enjoyed food from their dog menu! Lunch at the Portland Brewing Company was fun too.

    The Pug Crawl was a lot of fun! We had a great time at lunch and the parade was full of amazing zombie pug costumes. I hope you make plans to go to next year's Pug Crawl.

      Yes, we're heading down Saturday afternoon and staying at the Hilton in Vancouver. We will for sure be at the Pug Crawl! Can other dogs come but just not be in the parade? When are we all getting together? :)

      Yes other breeds are welcome to attend but the parade is for pugs only. We plan on having a meetup up at a dog park in Lake Oswego and do other activities with our pugs besides the Crawl. When the time gets closer we will have a more detailed schedule if you would like to join us.
