AltonPH ID: #6029
Hello Everyone! My name is Alton. I don’t know much about my life before being rescued by PugHearts other than I was picked up as a stray in Louisiana and taken to a high kill shelter. Thank goodness for PugHearts, they tagged me for rescue and I was out of there within an hour!

I traveled with some nice lady to her house for a few days and then on to another ladies house in Houston for a couple more days until I could be seen by our wonderful PugHearts vet Dr. Hendrix. The ladies that kept me said that I have an old soul whatever that means because I was so calm and relaxed. Dr. Hendrix says I am about 4 years old, have nasty heartworms and I can’t breath too well right now cause I need my soft pallet fixed, not sure what that all involves other than I know I will soon be able to breath much better. Now back to that old soul business, I’m now living with my foster family and I’m not sure about being an old soul, foster Mom called it my honeymoon phase, cause I like to make zoomies and run all around the house, I LOVE chewing on Nylabones, and rough housing with my foster siblings. I do get to sleep in the big bed with everyone and I love to cuddle up next to my human or next to one of my foster sibs.

I won’t be ready for adoption for quite some time because I have to get rid of the those nasty heartworms first, but if you want to follow me along on my journey, you can find foster Mom posting about me on the PugHearts Facebook page.

AugustusPH ID: #6040
Meet Augustus. He is about 9 yrs old.

He comes to PugHearts with an injury to his front foot that turned out to be a tumor. Sadly, the tumor was so severe that he lost his leg.

Augustus is heartworm negative and was obviously loved before he found himself in a shelter.

He is learning to move around with 3 legs, but that does not stop him from ALWAYS wanting to be near his person.

BaileyPH ID: #5464
Bailey is a 9 year old female pug with great personality and sazzyness. She loves to be with her humans and sleep by their bedside. She gets along with her two foster siblings, but takes a while to warm up and doesn't like dogs in her face. She's a bit alpha but I think is mostly because she's afraid the other dogs will knock her down because her back is weaker than the other dogs. She gets along with my toddler, but I prefer if she goes to a calmer, more relaxed household where her humans can give her all the attention, petting and love that she likes.

She loves soft beds and blankets so we have several fluffy blankets spread throughout the house for her. She is very spoiled so would like her forever home to continue this trend. :-) She loves warm baths and getting pampered. She loves getting picked up and place in the recliner with you.

Bailey has spondylosis and results in a different gait and some fecal incontinence. However, her incontinence has improved significantly and she seems more aware of it now. The accidents inside the house have been reduced significantly as well. Her bladder infection was cured in April 2018 and she has been pretty healthy since then. She eats Prescription Diet C/D for Urinary Health. I also give her Dasuquin MS and a cranberry supplement to keep her healthy.

She goes up and down the stairs, which she didn't when we first got her in February 2018. She goes potty outside by standing around the door and knows very well when meal times are. She is smart, sweet, and a great companion. I would love to see her relax at her forever home with lots of love and spoils.

BarryPH ID: #6021
Barry Cute. Barry Sweet. Barry Happy!

Sweetest 2 year old chug came to PugHearts when he was rescued from a local animal shelter, but they could not keep him. Their loss is your good luck! He is a sweet happy and healthy little boy.

Barry is heartworm negative and neutered

BeansPH ID: #5775
Beans is a 14 year old pug who loves 3 things: eating, sleeping, and eating again. He came to PugHearts a tad overweight at 26 pounds, but he has shed 2 pounds so far. He loves soft toys and is quite the character. Beans has had successful surgery to rid him of bladder stones, so he must stay on a restrictive diet to avoid a re-occurrence. He also has an old injury to his left eye and has no vision in it. Beans is a sedentary fellow who is happy with a low key lifestyle. He is happiest when he knows where you are and will especially follow you if you make your way into the kitchen....his favorite room. Beans sleeps in his own bed and is house trained. He gets along with other dogs and ignores the cat. Mr. Beans, as I refer to him, is a total sweetheart who is looking for a quiet home for his retirement years.

BellaPH ID: #6073
Bella is a sweet petite 10 year old owner surrender by no fault of her own. She is a svelte 16 pounds. She loves to be around people and is great with dogs and cats. Her favorite place is in your lap or right beside you. She is playful and fast for her age. She loves bathes, short walks and soft beds. She is potty trained and loves a doggie door to let herself out. Loving. Cuddly. Adventurous. Gentle.

>We are currently clearing up an ear infection and itchy skin but that will be cleared up soon.

BelvederePH ID: #5593
Belvedere comes to PugHearts heartworm positive and with a severely broke jaw. He is being treated by the vet and we will update soon. This super chill guy will be looking for his forever home after his heart worm treatment.

Belvedere is a handsome, sweet 6 year old male pug. He is heartworm positive and will go through treatment soon. Since coming to Pughearts he had his jaw repaired from a severe break. He has fully recovered from this surgery. His right eye is under developed and he has limited vision in his left eye but this doesn’t slow him down at all. He quickly learned to use the stairs that allowed him to get on the couch with his human.

Belvedere loves to hang out by his humans and other dogs. He is super relaxed and very low maintenance pug. Naps are one of his favorite things! We are working on house training and crate training. Both are going well!

BerniePH ID: #6016
This laid back, 7 yr old gentleman loves to cuddle and hang out near his human. He does great with other dogs and a cat but wouldn't mind being an only pug either. He enjoys investigating the outdoors but prefers couches and dog beds. Kinda a picky eater, but bring out the liverwurst and he'll come running.Bernie is heartworm positive and will need to go through heartworm treatment prior to being adopted.

BethanyPH ID: #6059
Bethany is a 6 year old fawn female that was turned in to a shelter with a severe eye injury that had been left untreated for quite some time. Poor thing was in severe pain. Luckily the shelter called us immediately, and we had her eye removed, with pain medications and antibiotics administered within days. Bethany is a total sweetheart. She is tiny, weighing in at only 13 lbs. She gets along fine with other dogs and children, but would be perfectly OK with being the only child. She wants nothing more than to be napping in your lap, and loves sleeping on the pillow next to her person in the big bed at night. Perfect pug kisses are Bethany’s specialty. If you are looking for a Velcro-Pug, she is definitely your girl. Bethany spins in circles, barking and whining whenever she’s excited, and it really is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. Unfortunately Bethany came to PugHearts Heartworm Positive, so she will not be ready for her forever home until December, but don’t wait to get your applications in. This little girl will not last long!

Betty AnnPH ID: #6023
Betty Ann is a chug, surrendered through no fault of her own. While Betty Ann was frightened of everything when she first came to us, she has blossomed into a loving little lap dog. She loves her people and she does well with dogs and loves to play with them! Betty Ann is 7 years old and heartworm negative. She loves to sleep next to her human, crates well and has excellent potty habits. Betty Ann is a little gem. Please consider her for your family!

BryantPH ID: #6030
Foster Bryant is a brand new 18 month old black male owner surrender. He is quite possibly the shiniest, blackest black I've seen. We are treating skin issues and a UTI. He will be home ready after his neuter 8/26/19.

Bryant needs lots of moral support communing with other dogs (right now fearful), and also with potty and house manners. He is still a puppy, and appears he was not socialized at all. Being one of 7 here, help is imminent. He is also not particularly fond of the crate or car rides, but I expect the newness of being in PugHearts to wear off and our routine to become customary and accepted.

I'll post more as I get to know him; as with all our dogs, the best way to follow their progress is via Facebook and Instagram.

BrycePH ID: #5999
Meet Bryce! This handsome gent is 14-15 yrs old and as sweet as can be! Poor fella had fleas, but we took care of that and he’s feeling much better! Sadly, he is severe heartworm positive and is having fainting spells due to the damage these heartworms have already done. He’s hoping for a wonderful home for his golden years.

BrynnPH ID: #5928
Foster Brynn came to PugHearts when she was 5 weeks old and in dire need of medical attention. She had horrible skin and both of her eyes were ruptured. We have no idea what happened to her but it didn’t matter anymore because she was going to be cared for. She had both of her eyes removed and has been going nonstop since. We think she’s a Chug and she’s 7 months old now.

The odds that Brynn remembers being able to see are slim to none so she didn’t notice anything was different except the pain was gone. She plays like a maniac with all the other fosters, runs around the house and loves to throw the cow hooves around and chase them when they make noise landing on the tile floor. In short, Brynn doesn’t know she can’t see and acts just like any other pug. When they lose one sense the others take over for that loss. She loves to cuddle on my lap and act like she’s a baby again. Or she curls up on my shoulder just like she did 5 months ago, the only difference is she doesn’t fit as good as she did back then. She can’t go to a home with a pool for obvious reasons, but that’s the only limitation for her placement.

What I want for Brynn…I want someone to love her for how great she is and treat her like the normal pug she is. That’s it. If you think Brynn could be the one for you just let us know.

BuddyPH ID: #5179
Buddy is a gentleman pug that comes to PugHearts with his sister Carlee after his family became too ill to care for them.

From Buddy's foster: My name is Buddy! I am a young 11-year old, male, fawn pug. I love to be outside, but also like to nap inside too. I love to eat, sleep, and repeat! I am very low maintenance. I don't really fuss much or bark. I just like to follow my human around until I need another nap!

BurkePH ID: #6060

ByronPH ID: #5742
Byron comes to Pug Hearts needing some medical care and TLC. He had an untreated skin allergy that resulted in him missing a lot of fur on his backside. A couple weeks with us and he already looks so much better. On 11/9 he will get a much needed dental, neuter, and a tumor removed from his leg. Then on 12/10 he goes for his heartworm treatment so Byron will be ready in January 2019. At approximately 11 years old Byron is very spunky and full of energy. He loves to roll in the grass and skip in the yard. He sleeps well in a human bed, dog bed, or kennel. He gets along great with his foster brothers and the resident cat. Byron says adopt me please!

Candy CornPH ID: #4806
Candy Corn is a 9 yr old female. She was surrendered back to PugHearts with her friend Heath due to medical issues with their family..

This adorable pair are both bonded to each other.

They will only be adopted together.

CarolPH ID: #5787
Hello humans. My foster mommy asked that I write a quick bio about myself. She suggested the first thing that I should mention is that I don't shed! I know mind blown, right? This is 100% true and is due to me being a pug/brussels griffon mix. The non-shedding side is from the Brussels Griffon genes. Another important fact about me is I would enjoy being an only child. I'm an extreme alphadog. Although there is harmony most days with my Foster Brothers there are still occasions that I like to be sure they know that I'm the boss! I love to snuggle and be with my human all of the time. I will roll over almost immediately for a belly rub. I'm not fond of being in a crate but if you close off an area I don't mind chilling out in there. I'm potty trained and would love to find someone to love me and all of my whiskers. What are you waiting for?

CharliePH ID: #5976
Introducing Foster Charlie 9 yrs old. He is mentally broken and will need some time to heal and trust me. I am giving him his space in a quiet spot in my bathroom in which he picked. He is only 12 lbs and is a little shy and scared. He was adopted from a shelter 9 yrs ago only to be sent back to the same place 9 yrs later. I am not sure what he is mixed with but for now he is a Pug, sort of. Foster Charlie is really broken and will need some time to heal before being able to be adopted. He loves all dogs and has no issue with them. It’s the male figure right now I am dealing with , that makes me think he was abused by one. He will shiver and freeze if you pick him up. I am working on his trust and so far he runs to me to hold him and to make him feel safe. He is a great little dog and just needs to learn he is loved and no one will ever hurt him again.

ChewyPH ID: #6074
CHEWY BIO - Chewy came into PugHearts the first of September 2019 and was diagnosed with flea allergy, many hot spots on his rump, and he is Heart work positive and needed neutered. Chewy came to live with his foster family on September 3, 2019 and he is a bundle of joy. This boy loves his hoomans and his momma especially. Every morning when we wake up he needs to rub against his momma like he would rub up against some dead thing he found in the yard. I am not sure how to take that except as pure love. LOL He gets along great with his 5 foster brothers and his special needs hooman sister. We believe he is around 6 years old. He has three of the cutest mug shots.....1) mouth closed and smile......2) tongue sticking out.......and 3) two fangs on the bottom. He loves to play with some toys and run 90 miles a second around the house in pure joy. He has learned the doggie door and uses it about 80% of the time. The other times he waits for us to open the door to go out. He has had his neuter on October 2, 2019 along with a palate resection and he is healing up nicely from that and he is awaiting heartworm treatment that will start on December 2, 2019. This boy is a wonderful, loving furbaby that loves to cuddle, give kisses and show you how much he is happy to be rescued. Chewy 5 doesn't know it yet but he has an adoption pending and will be going by the name Choo. He is pure joy!

ConstancePH ID: #6039
Constance Capri, better known as CiCi is an adorable, 6 year old apricot Chihuahua/Pug Mix. This 9 lb Chug came to PugHearts as a stray from the Valley. CiCi has the best traits of both the Chihuahua and the Pug. She gets along great with other dogs of all sizes, cats and children, but would also be perfectly fine being the only child. CiCi is completely house trained, crate trained, and she even gives hugs when asked, and prances for her food! She has the hearty pug appetite, and will go straight to her crate after a little dance at meal time. She also has the cutest pug wiggle butt and gets so excited when she knows you’re talking to her! She loves sleeping on the back of the couch or in your lap if asked, and being outside lounging in the chair is a favorite pastime of hers as well. Unlike a pug, CiCi won’t get right under your feet, which makes her the perfect pet for people of all ages, and she’ll stay inside all day waiting for a break, which makes her perfect for either a house with a yard or an apartment. CiCi is doing great at leash training, and absolute loves playing dress up! She will be ready for her forever home following her spay and heartworm treatment. Get your applications in quick for this perfect little lady!

Cora BellePH ID: #5975
Hi everyone, I’m Cora Belle. I am around 6 years old or so. I'm a little lady. I am very cute, sweet and special. Yep, fell on my head and it causes me to tumble like a cheerleader, but I just get up and keep going. Hardwood and tile floors are hard for me and I look like I’m trying to learn to ice skate and fall a lot. Foster mom has rugs for me to walk to that help me. Don’t worry, it is just a little thing and meds aren’t needed except for the prevention ones. You should see me run the fence when I’m protecting the yard. I’m looking for a forever family that doesn’t mind a girl who stumbles. I love hugs and will be yours forever.

CordellPH ID: #6043
This guy! He was found as a stray, emaciated, mostly blind, tapeworms, HW+ but neutered. He is gaining weight and turning into a happy playful guy! He growls constantly, but with him it’s more like purring. He looks like he will eat off your hand but plays really gently! He and the other dogs are having a hard time acclimating to each other, so the quieter the house, the better for him. He is great with kids though. His sight has returned a little with daily eye drops (forever). He can see movement and shadows if it’s well lit. He can’t get around at all at night. He will run into everything. He is not quite crate or house trained but he is smart and will get it eventually. He is really a sweetheart that will do great in a no or maybe one dog house.

CorinnaPH ID: #6077
Corrina, Corrina, welcome to PugHearts! This beautiful little doll face comes to PugHearts at no fault of her own, her person was no longer well enough to care for her. Corrina is 12 years old, is heart worm negative, completely house trained, loves attention (she will follow you everywhere), loves children, gets along well with other dogs, and she still loves to play with her toys! She is crate trained, and has had absolutely no accidents while she’s been staying in her foster’s home. Corrina has some skin issues that are being treated, and will be spayed in early October. She’ll ready for her forever home shortly thereafter. Please don’t let her age fool you, this girl is a whole lotta fun with a bunch of spunk in her step! Corrina would be a great fit for any family, she is just that awesome!

CorkyPH ID: #6054
Welcome cutie pie Foster Corky to rescue! This sparky little 10+ year old chunk of love was surrendered, through no fault of his own, when his elderly owners suffered a medical emergency and could no longer care for him. So far we know he gets along well with other dogs, big and small. He crates with minimal protest and slept through the night like a champ. He loves to follow his human around and gives the sweetest little tiny kisses. Corky will travel to our vet tomorrow for intake and we will know a little bit more about him soon. Look for more quirky Corky updates in the days to come!

CorneliusPH ID: #5998
This is Cornelius a 2 year old fawn male. He is heartworm positive and has skin issues. He is working through the skin issues and will be neutered August 2nd. Once his neuter is finished he will need to go through heartworm treatment before he will be ready for his forever home. He is not on any medication and is a typical pug, eats like there is no tomorrow. He is a sweetheart, loves his person and is a very happy little pug. He loves to play with toys and will play with any animal or human if they will play. He is a very active two year old, learning to jump in my lap and we are working on potty training. He is a Velcro and wants nothing but to be by your side 24/7.

CucoPH ID: #6046
Male, 10 year old, Black, owner surrender. Cuco may he 10 but he has a lot of energy. He likes both to play and also take long naps with you or other pugs. Very curious about his surroundings and super smart. Loves kids and has never met a stranger in his life. Cuco is a bilingual pug that will over your command in English or Spanish. He is crate and potty trained. He came to us with an enlarged prostrate but is being treated as we speak. He will have his big boy surgery on 8/29th. He is a beautiful dog with a long tongue that tends to stay out for comic relief. He likes humans and dogs alike. He will be your shadow no matter what you do.

DarrenPH ID: #5981
Everyone welcome Darren to PugHearts! Darren is a 9 year old retired Hollywood stunt pug. You may recognize him from Otis and Milo as well as Men in Black. Darren was living in an assisted living facility for retired members of the entertainment community, but when the rent was raised Darren could no longer afford to live there and ended up in a shelter. Due to poor insurance coverage and the nature of his career, Darren has hip dysplasia, elbow and knee pain. He has a dental scheduled in July. He is neutered, heartworm negative, deaf, with decent vision.

Darren is improving daily, but has trust and fear issues with people trying to clean his eyes, face, and feet. As you can imagine, he is an independent man and hates to have someone fuss over him.

DesmondPH ID: #6078
This is Desmond. We don't know his history, other than he came from a shelter in Laredo still intact and extremely fearful. He's since been neutered, started Prozac for his anxiety & is working with one of the nurses at the vet who's working on her behavior certification.

He does wonderful in a home environment with someone he trusts. He acts like a spunky, playful 1 yr old; he knows sit, is learning to wait for food & we're working on down. Unfortunately he's very sensitive to any change in his environment; new dogs can be scary, but new people are the scariest. We'll never know if he was actual abused or just never properly socialized.

We will continue to work with him with socialization & to build his confidence. Hoping that the right person/family is out there for him. He loves learning new tricks/commands (it really helps his self confidence), he's very athletic and would love to be an agility dog.

DillyPH ID: #6112

DocPH ID: #5763
Doc is 7 years old and loves to be near people. He is a new foster so for now he likes his space and loves our oversized orthopedic dog bed. He is heart worm negative and is working on gaining a little weight. He does have dry eye which calls for a drop of med in each eye once a day for the rest of his life.

Doc has a slight back problem and is currently on medication for any pain. It does not slow him down at all and we are just careful not to let him jump up and down off furniture.

He is currently being kennel trained and potty trained. He loves kids, other dogs and could care less about our cat.

He needs to be in a home with other dogs. He loves to climb in your lap and lay upside down for tummy rubs. He never turns down a treat and kennels on command. We are still working on potty training but it is getting much better.

DollyPH ID: #5914
Dolly is PugHearts resident tripod sensation! She came from the Rio Grande Valley after being turned in to a shelter there to be euthanized due to injuries. When Dolly arrived at PugHearts, she had a horrible dislocation to her front wrist as well as complete de-gloving of the skin. We assume it was an injury sustained from being hit by a car, and she had been in this condition for 2-3 weeks. Her other 3 legs had lost muscle and range motion, and walking at all was a challenge. After much consideration and work, Dolly had her hurt front leg amputated and has made a complete recovery. She’s already mastered jumping onto furniture and going up the stairs, and everyday she amazes us with her incredible spirit and new abilities. It appears from x-rays that her jaw was broken several years ago, and never repaired, but it has healed itself and doesn’t cause her any discomfort, only a crooked smile that we’ve all grown to love. It’s Dolly’s trademark! We estimate her age to be 8 years old. Unfortunately Dolly is heartworm positive, which means she won’t be available for adoption until the end of the summer, but don’t wait to get your applications in. This is one special girl!

EarlPH ID: #6094
My name is Earl but my foster mom and dad call me Earl the Pearl. After the only family I ever knew my entire life my gave me up I lost hope that anyone would love a pug like me again. I mean I’m 14 years old, blind, deaf, suffer from severe arthritis, have a hunched back and an underbite. I’m not one of those pugs that people look at an say awwww, I’m the one they say ewww to.

Despite those things when PugHearts got me I was really scared and paced around a lot thinking they wouldn’t want me either. I thought they’d give me up too but boy, was I wrong! They took me to their own doctor and got me on some kind of medicine to help my arthritis and daily eye drops too. I felt so special and wanted. The best thing is PugHearts has me in a foster home who tell me how much they love me every single day. They bought me my very own bed, give me double portions of food to help me gain weight (plus lots of snacks), cuddle and let me all the time and because walking hurts so much my foster mom bought me a life jacket that has a handle on it. She carries me in an out of the house for bathroom breaks. The rest of the time these old bones of mine are tired and I sleep most of the time. I have 3 other foster siblings who are pretty nice. My foster mom tells me she’s proud of me because I've never peed in the house and I try really hard not to poo, but sometimes I can’t help it. My foster mom never gets mad at me though because she said I can’t help it with my arthritis. I really love my foster parents and give them kisses whenever I can actually see their faces.

I know the chances of anyone wanting to adopt an old man like me is slim but that’s ok because I know PugHearts will always make sure I’m safe and cared for. I’m very thankful to have PugHearts and a foster mom and dad who love me and want me to spend my senior years in comfort.

EvelynPH ID: #4679
Evelyn is an older southern lady that comes to us with her friend Ernest.

Evelyn is a 9 year old white female. She is sassy, adorable and has a terrible collapsing trachea. Evelyn uses her cough to her foster Dad to baby her and it works well. She is a tiny thing, but can hang with the other dogs playing outside for a little while. Her cough is kept in check with medication and cannot be cured, only controlled. She is heartworm negative and deals with some dry eye (with resulting vision issue)

FranciscoPH ID: #6085
Francisco is the most handsome of young men, yet another from the Rio Grande Valley.

He is an intact 2 year old fawn whose neuter is scheduled 10/30, so will be home ready right after!

We're learning about each other, and he at first turned down all treats and was slow to eat meals, but my 6 other pugs are showing him the pug way, and he's now eating cheese and dog cookies, just as they do. He likely never got treats before PugHearts, sadly. He's very friendly with the other pugs, and of course people. He's slightly anemic, likely from the flea infestation he was supporting, and has ear infections, but we're correcting both with medication. Overall he's one our our healthier intakes, by far.

He has my very favorite, lower maintenance short, single coat, and gives the sweetest kisses with bonus nose nibbles. Please adopt him fast; he's my kinda pug and failure is not an option. Save him, save me, LOL.

Meantime, follow his updates on Facebook and buy your ticket to Pugs On The Bayou 10/19 right NOW!!!! What are you waiting for??!! It will be his debut.

FrancoPH ID: #6015
Franco is a stunning, big (21 lbs.), black, 8 year old boy who came to us with 2 other pugs as owner surrenders, thru no fault of their own.

He is such a love and follows me everywhere. The bleached appearance of his coat, heart worm positive status, and presence of ticks when picked up, and hesitation to come in the house on his own, indicate he likely lived outside. He is getting used to the pampered PugHearts life now, with regular grooming, meals, vet visits, meds, stuffies, soft beds, friends, crate and house training. I can actually see the gratitude in his eyes. He just wants love, gets along with all pugs, and will make a wonderful family addition. His tail is chocolate donut perfection. Even better than all that? When carried, he does swimmy feet (paddles likes he's going into water). It. Is. Adorable.

Look for him to be home healthy in October. Meantime, follow his progress on Facebook and Instagram.

I will love him until you can.

FranklinPH ID: #5901
This is Mr. Franklin, a 6-year old pug that came to Pughearts in a bad state. He has severe skin issues which cause him to scratch incessantly and lose fur in several parts of his body. He is also very underweight. We're hoping that with a good diet and more frequent feeding, he will gain some weight. With time, lots of love, and attention, we are optimistic that Mr. Franklin's personality will come out. At the moment, he is extremely shy and very wary of humans. He doesn't like to venture out of his crate and explore his surroundings. Unfortunately, we believe that all his life, he was in a cage. We are also trying to show him that it's okay to have fun and play with his foster brothers and sisters. He is not ready for adoption since he still needs time to heal. However, Mr. Franklin hopes that there is a special person or family out there who will be able to see past his "imperfections" and love him for his gentle demeanor and quiet personality. Mr. Franklin had a sad life before Pughearts. He deserves a chance to be happy.

FridaPH ID: #5662
Frida is a sweet gentle 5 year old pug mix that comes to us from a local ER. She appears to have been hit by a car and sustained trauma to her eye. The eye was not able to be saved and was removed to make her comfortable.

She was heartworm positive and did well in treatment. She is now cleared.

Foster Frida is her name. Being smart and snuggly is her game. Seriously, this happy 5 year old snuggle bug is super smart, perfect in the house, crate trained, and gets along with everyone. She’s clearly a mix, possibly pug mixed with perfection and maybe a bit of chihuahua. Tonight I wanted to transition her to a different crate in a different spot now that she no longer needs her halo (cone of shame). All I did was toss her slept on blankie into the different crate. She figured it all out on her own and happily entered and snuggled in for the night. Frida is such a good girl and holds no grudges for losing her eye in a car accident. She will be keeping an eye out for her furever family while she undergoes heartworm treatment.

Don’t you want to experience the wonderful Life with Frida?

Sweet foster Gem is 7 years old and has known nothing but a chain and an iron fence until PugHearts. Gem came in with heartworms, hookworms, dry eyes, dental disease, flea allergy, mass on her left front foot and she of course wasn't spayed. She also wasn't potty trained and froze whenever she was touched. Fast forward just a week and Gem is beautifully potty trained, crate trained and loves being pet. She also knows sit and figured out how to settle down and Netflix with us. She is super tiny, has a goofy little face with a sideways hanging tongue and her head tilt game is on point!

This precious gem stole the heart of a sweet family who will adopt her in 2020 once all her treatments are completed. Her new name will be Ruby so that the theme stays the same. Congratulations to everyone!

GisellePH ID: #5684
Hi everyone, I am Giselle. I am an 8 year old heartworm negative female with a couple of special needs, who was rescued from El Paso. I am a very happy, feisty girl waiting for the perfect home.

Somewhere along the line I suffered a dislocated pelvis and a broken femur that was never repaired. I also have arthritis as a result in addition to being a bit deformed in the back. I do struggle on tile, but run across the grass or on rugs with a little bunny hop. I would need a kind owner who will carry me up and down steps as I cannot navigate them, nor can I use a dog door. My foster mom lays runner rugs for me. I am tiny so I can be carried where necessary without ruining your back.

While my walking is wonky, I do have full control over my bladder and bowels and am completely house trained. I know to go to the door to go outside. I love outside, and sunbathing, but need help getting back in.

I also had a bad eye injury, so I am a winky now. My remaining eye does not work well, and I get drops which I will need for life.

I may be tiny but have a big voice which I am not afraid to use. I slap you with my paw and bark when I want your attention. I love snuggling up next to my humans and submissive dogs who won't give me static. I am a bit of an alpha girl and will not hesitate to stand my ground.

I love food, treats, and fluffy toys which I toss in the air. Oom-a-loos are the best! I love scritches and belly rubs but due to my prior injuries cannot roll over. I do a slight roll on my side as a hint that my tummy needs rubs.

JebPH ID: #5248
Jeb is a senior boy that comes to PugHearts from a local shelter. He is dealing with some neglect and age has not been kind to him. He is currently at the vet to be evaluated, treated and readied to go into a foster home to learn what spoiling and comfort feel like.

From Jeb's foster: If Jeb would write a personal ad, it would go like this...

Looking for an adorable elderly gent? I am Jeb, an 11 year old black pug who loves to cuddle, is great with other dogs and kids, and is very well mannered. My happiest moment is laying next to you and enjoying your company. I don't pee or poop in your house either. Since I do have some sight issues (i have some vision - I have to have eye drops), my current people pick me up and take me out. As soon as I am out, I take care of business fast and am ready to go back in. If I need to go out in the meantime, I will bark to let you know that I need to go. I am kind of "fluffy" right now - I love to eat and it shows so I am working on losing some "fluff". I am not food aggressive and eat right along all my other 4 legged people. My back legs are a little wonky when I walk but when I lose some "fluff" it should help that. So you are wondering how I am without you? I snooze away until you come back. I have free roam so I am a trust worthy kinda guy. Some say "what a good boy" - nah, I am a great boy!

Judge is a new little PugHearts nugget. He is an 11 year old neutered fawn owner surrender thru no fault of his own.

Most unique trait: His tail was surgically removed for health reasons by that owner. He seems undaunted by it, tho harder to tell when he's excited. He's a cheerful, solid, compact guy, who in true pug form, LOVES his food. He also adores being outside. He doesn't care much about the other dogs, is pretty independent, and prefers to case the yard.

We are helping him with some rear leg stiffness medication, then a dental (you're welcome) on 10/4/19, after which Judge will be home ready fresh!! With his quacky bark, stub tail, and front heavy physique, he's a combo of several animals, some yet to be determined. He's a veritable zoo in a box; a wombatty, hamster butted wonder; quite the conversation piece.

Follow his Facebook posts and contact an adoption coordinator if you'd like to meet Judge before his debut at Pugs On The Bayou 10/19/19!!!

LennoxPH ID: #6058
Lennox is a beautiful 6 year old fawn female that was found roaming in a field covered in fleas. She was turned in to the local shelter and after a stray hold, and exhausting all efforts to find her family, PugHearts was called. She came in with severe flea allergies and other skin issues which means medicated baths twice a week as well as a cycle of prednisone to help clear everything up. Unfortunately, Lennox comes to PugHearts severe heartworm positive, but good news is she’s not showing any symptoms of this, and her x-rays show clear lungs. She has the perfect silver markings on her face with the most loving and attentive eyes. She is 100% Velcro, follows her person around everywhere, and loves to sleep right next to you in bed at night. She gets along with other dogs and does fine with children too. Lennox is not one to beg for attention. She will patiently wait her turn, but will show immense gratitude and love for all the pets and pug kisses she receives. She’s completely house trained and crate trained, but roams freely in the house when I’m home or away and has no issues at all. She is a great eater, loves her fruits and vegetables, and takes all meds like a champ with a spoon of peanut butter. She will have a dental next month. Currently, Lennox is on a glucosamine supplement for preventative measures. Heartworm treatment will begin at the end of October and she’ll be ready for her forever home right after Thanksgiving. Will Lennox become your holiday baby?

LennyPH ID: #5958
Lenny came to PugHearts with his mom and sister. They all three tested positive for parvo so like always Cindy took them and here we are several months later and they are all very healthy. We do know Lenny is ½ pug (we had his mother) and all we know is that his other half is 100% cute! He’s now 5 months old and would love to have a family and home of his own.

I love this mischievous little guy. He has human eyes and when I look at him sitting beside me with his crazy hair hanging in his face I can see the little boy plotting. He’s an amazing baby and it goes without saying that he loves to play both inside and outside, and typical boy that he is, loves to play in my potted plants on the patio. But who can get mad a face like his?? He’s doing well on his potty training, he has gone all day without an accident in his crate a few days in the last week so he’s making great progress if you consider I work and am gone from the house for 9 hours a day.

Lenny is really ready to have a home of his own. He’s not a big guy so he would be a great size for younger children.

LeoPH ID: #6061

Loves his dog bed and chews, has already learned to sit and is very food motivated.

LilaPH ID: #5183
Lila is a 4 yr old female that comes to PugHearts after being found wandering all alone.

From Lila's foster: Meet Lila - our gorgeous Lila!! She is a very happy, healthy 4yr old that loves to play and cuddle and run - everywhere she goes!!

Lila is a special needs pug that has some neurological issues with her back legs. We are not sure if this is due to an injury or birth - be please do not let this deter you from adopting her!! She does not let this slow her down one bit!! The biggest issue is elimations, as she is not always aware of pooping. Lila does squat to urinate, but then hops about 3ft while going. If she is leashed and you hold her, she will finish then move on. She will also stand up when asked!

This sweet girl is a treasure and we are hoping that someone will give her a chance at a family - she deserves her own family and loves with her whole heart!!

Lola BellaPH ID: #6072
Hi Everybody! My name is Lola Bella aka Lil’Bit. I am about 3 yrs young. I found my way to PugHearts because a nice lady found me wandering the streets in the middle of the day on a sweltering Houston summer heat. The nice lady gave me water and cool me off before I pass out of dehydration. She then call her friend that fosters for PugHearts and she took me to her who is now my FoMo. The good Dr. Hendrix said that I had babies at one point, need some minor surgery here and there and FoMo said that I probably got dumped because I don’t want to be breed again and again. Unfortunately, whoever had me before did not take good care of me because I have heart worms and need to undergo treatment. As soon as I finish the treatment and become healthy, I will be living my best life ever. For now, I am getting spoiled by my FoMo with lots of treats, cuddles, belly rubs and kisses. I will keep everybody posted with my progress and journey with PugHearts. Oh and please Keep me and my fellow fosters in your thoughts and prayers.

Her tail is the most perfect pug tail that I’ve ever seen, and she wins the prize for the absolute best case of the wiggle butts! LuLu is very submissive and when she’s nervous she will put herself in the crate until she’s more comfortable. I’m sure as time goes on, LuLu will get more comfortable with all the excitement. She is very Velcro and wants to see where I’m at all times, and if possible she wants to be touching me too. LuLu has already been spayed and her nares were done, but unfortunately she is heartworm positive and will need to go thru treatment prior to finding her forever home.

MargoPH ID: #6031
Hi! I’m Margo and my Foster Mom says I am PERFECT!!! Here’s why…I’m the perfect female at age 6 and am healthy. No heartworms. I am getting spay on Aug 27th, along with a dental. Other reasons I am perfect…I can sit, walk on a leash and I LOVE to walk. I can play and be rowdy but I can chill out when it’s time. I come when called but I’m usually very close to you. 90% housebroke. I am crate trained. I don’t have separation anxiety. I DON’T SNORE, amazing right? I love the other dogs in the house and the humans. I can alert when there’s trouble but I don’t invent it. In Pug language – I don’t bark if a leaf blows down.

My negatives…honestly my Foster Mom says I don’t have any. She says I’m cute as a bug as I am a small Pug. HA HA That was my joke. Did I mention I’m funny?

FROM FOSTER MOM: Margo had a few accidents in the house the first few days but I think it was being in a new environment and a couple of ‘marking’ incidents that should be completely gone after her spay and the hormones settle. She is quiet and sweet. She is charming and really is a Perfect Pug.

He located his food and water bowls, and now he is doing great! I don't let him sleep on the bed because I'm afraid he will fall off. He sleeps on a bed next to mine and gets along fine with the other pugs in my home. He has to be taken outside regularly. He would be a great addition to a home without small children or big dogs. He is a wonderful little companion, and he is quiet. The ideal home for him would be with someone that is home a lot and has time to love on him. Mochi is a lap dog that needs someone to love him during his golden years. He has plenty of love to give in return!

NatashaPH ID: #6052

NikkiPH ID: #6014
Welcome Nikki to PugHearts, she was an owner surrender from West Texas but sadly heartworm positive. Nikki is 5 years young and such the Velcro pug! She just wants to be held and loved on. All you have to do is tell her what a pretty girl she is and she rolls over for belly rubs. She gets along with the other pugs in our grumble but really wants her own furever home. She would be a dream come true for some lucky person or family!

OpheliaPH ID: #5085
Ophelia comes to PugHearts from the Rio Grande valley.

She is a 4 year old fawn female. She is severe heartworm positive and will have to go through treatment prior to adoption.

From Ophelia's foster: Ophelia is a Velcro pug, very energetic and happy. She loves toys, Nyla bones and plush toys, but unfortunately she has mega esophagus which can be irritated by over enthusiastic play or stress. She loves tummy and chest rubs and she will let you know if you have not fulfilled her pet/scratch quota by pawing at your hand. She gives kisses and is very excited most of the time. Which has been alittle worrisome during her heart worm treatment. The mega esophagus is manageable with elevated food and rest 20-30 mins after feeding. Ophelia is a delightful little girl that adds a bright spot to everyday.

Medical hold and then pending adoption with his foster Mom.

OtisPH ID: #6053
Otis is a 10 year old black male, but someone forgot to tell him that he is a senior boy. He is SUCH a good boy, house trained and crate trained; but prefers to be with you.

Snuggly. Playful. Spunky! Don't let this guy pass you by. Great with other dogs and kids.

There are no negatives here!

OttoPH ID: #6083
Otto's story is rather dramatic. We got called to take this sweet boy in but as you can see he is no pug at all so we originally said no. Fast forward two weeks and we got contacted again, this time we were told he had a broken pelvis and was an hour from being euthanized... and that he acts like he's given up on life which is horrible considering he is just 2 years old. Needless to say, pug or no pug, we rushed to his rescue.

This sweet, sweet boy hates crate as a result but is completely potty trained so really he doesn't need it. He is friendly with everyone and his only purpose in life is to be with his people. He is a little slow to warm up to strangers but does well after about 10 minutes. Otto somehow hit the lottery twice - first when he escaped euthanasia by a few minutes, and second when his future momma laid her eyes on him. Otto will be joining an AMAZING family at the end of this month, after his neuter. He will have a rescue mastiff sister and 3 non-fur siblings. He deserves his happy ending and I couldn't be more ecstatic for him.

PangPH ID: #5806
My name is Pang but my foster mom calls me Chickey Chickey Pang Pang.

A little strange but I answer to it.

I had a home for the first 9 years of my life but my family loved me so much they gave me to PugHearts. You see, my fur brother did not get along with me and in order to keep me safe, they gave me up.

I don’t pee in the house, I will never turn down a treat, I am crate trained and I see out of my one eye perfectly. I live with lots of other dogs and even a cat right now and I love them all.

I even have two human girls that love to cuddle with me.

I am looking for my furever home. To meet me is to love me.

PappiPH ID: #5855
Pappi is a 12-year-old neutered 26 pound male. Pappi has a few medical issues that will be resolved with surgery, a dental cleaning, and meds for hip pain. He appears to have very limited vision and is mostly deaf. He will need to be kept on daily eye drops for the rest of his life for dry eye; he's not a fan of the drops yet, but we are working on it. Housebroken, Pappi is content to nap in or out of his crate. He's a quiet guy who only on occasion will spontaneously howl. Pappi is in search of a retirement home where he can live out his years inside.

PashiePH ID: #4883
Fawn female 7 years old, mostly blind.

From Pashie's foster: For what Pashie lacks in sight, she makes up for in sheer determination. She will follow you around the world and back as long as she can sense you, hear your feet or hear your voice. She happily will plant herself on the floor close to you if you stay too long. She is also a pretty decent couch potato, where she likes to get her back scratched. She has one of the softest coats I've ever seen so she gets her back scratched a lot! She is a super sweet dog who gets along great with my two-legged boys and my middle-age alpha pug. She's not real fond of our one year old puppy, there's a lot going on there! If you are looking for a velcro pug and a companion for life, this is your girl.

PatrickPH ID: #5493
Patrick comes to PugHearts from a shelter in the Rio Grande Valley. He has some medical issues that will be evaluated and addressed.

Patrick is the sweetest pug! 7 years young and full of love and smart! Enjoys cuddles and kisses. He likes to spend time in the yard basking in the sun. He gets along well with other dogs! He is fully house trained. He will let you know when he needs to go outside to do his business by standing in front of the door. This sweet boy has some special needs so he is looking for a family that can give him extra love.

PaulPH ID: #5907
Paul is a tiny 9 lb, 18 month old pug mix that was found as a a stray, skinny and with a too-small harness on. Oh, how things have changed since being rescued by PugHearts! Paul is a funny, sweet, quirky, lovable little guy. We call him a-dork-able. He has some dry skin issues that should resolve with TLC, but he’s otherwise HEALTHY! Unbelievably, he’s heartworm negative and was already neutered so he’s ready to adopt right away. He gets along well with other dogs and is very affectionate with his humans. Give this little guy a chance and he’ll steal your heart.

Pedro (Aka Jj)PH ID: #5909
Pedro is a 6 year old male pug mix. He comes to PugHearts with a significant peri-anal hernia that requires surgery to repair.

PenelopePH ID: #5963
PH Penelope (aka PennyP), is a 2 year old pug /something mix. Maybe a chug? But she has some longer legs, so not quite sure. She is super fun and sweet. She loves to play with other dogs, and they all seem to really like her. She’s got a fun spirit. She’s healthy and a really good girl! She’d love to find a family with some buddies to play with! #phadoptme

Peter is heartworm positive and will have to go through heartworm treatment prior to adoption.

PhillipPH ID: #5984

He is crate trained and we are working on not marking in the house. He is a very lean pug, although with his love for food, I don’t know how he does it. Phillip is great with other dogs and kids. Sadly, he is heartworm positive and will have to go through treatment prior to adoption.

PhoebePH ID: #6076
“Hi, my name is Phoebe. Foster mom says I am Fabulous Phoebe! I may not be 100% pug but I am 1000% adorable. I am a petite, spunky little girl. I have the softest fur and I don’t shed much at all. I love to play with toys and I really love my chewies. I was a little scared of my foster sisters at first, but now I think they are pretty fun. We love to run and chase each other all over the house. Mom let me sleep in the big bed with everyone and that was really nice. I’m small so I don’t take up much room! I’m still settling in and getting used to living in a house. Mom says I have a lot to learn, and I am trying my best. She says I’m super smart and that I’ll learn excellent house manners in no time. Stay tuned for updates because I can’t wait to show you just how fabulous I am!”

Phoebe is a 3 year old, heartworm negative, healthy chug. After a proper introduction, she gets along great with the other dogs and doesn’t pay any attention to the cat. She’s working on potty training and crate training currently. We will post updates as we get to know this little sweetheart better.

PorterPH ID: #5600

RandyPH ID: #6041
Hello Everybody! I am Randy. I am 1 yr old and some change. I came to PugHearts because my previous owner was too busy to take care of me, they kept me boarded for 3 months. A nice lady rescued me out from that place and kept me for a few days until the awesome doctor at my vet was able to check me. The doctor said I am physically healthy, just need my big boy surgery, which is soon (Sept. 5). I do have some psychological trauma from almost no human interaction and not knowing what being love by humans feel like and how to be a dog. But don’t feel bad folks, I am getting all the help I need and all the love and belly rubs and cuddles from my foster Mom and her people (the nice lady that is taking care of me right now, that's what she calls herself). I get along real good with my foster brothers, they taught me how to play and sit and go inside the play pen and go potty outside and I finally like eating moist kibble.

Hopefully I will find my furever home and a family that will love me unconditionally and spend time with me.


RangerPH ID: #173
Ranger is a 12 year old, heartworm negative, fawn male returned to us since his owner passed away. He is house trained, does well in a crate, and has been good with kids so far. He's a sweet guy who is content to just be around you. But don't let the age fool you, he's a great walker and gets around well. He's hard of hearing (likely deaf) but doesn't let it slow him down. Definitely consider this sweet man for your family. He won't disappoint.

RenPH ID: #5657
Ren comes to PugHearts from the Rio Grande Valley. He was part of a group from a puppy mill and poor Ren is scared of everything. He is, sadly, heartworm positive and will have to go through heartworm treatment. He is very slowly learning to trust a human and we will do everything in our power to make sure he knows he will never be hurt or alone again.

RileyPH ID: #5937
Riley 6 is one of our newest fosters from Rio Grande Valley. He is a 2 year old winky stunner. He is that rarer, deep, golden/apricot fawn. He has a massive, soulful, wildly expressive head. He needs lots of groceries. Sadly, he is heart worm positive, so weight is not readily gained till after treatment, which he'll receive in July, but means he won't be home ready until August. We were able to neuter and remove his injured eye (hence winky) upon intake, and he is healing nicely. He sees perfectly with his remaining peeper. He loves exploring the yard and mingling with the other pugs. He does not object to the crate, but snores like the sleep apnea poster child ????. He's a taller, longer guy; goal weight is 20 pounds. We will also work on house and potty manners, but he will need a family with patience and willingness to continue positive and consistent reinforcement. I have every expectation that with these things, he'll grow into the healthy, fine gentleman he was meant to be. He's already gorgeous; obviously. And, just, HIS TAIL. A double twist for the ages.

RockyPH ID: #5839
Rocky is a huggable 10 year old dapper fellow filled with character and adorable quirkiness. This little guy will make you smile and chuckle daily with his quirky feistiness. He alerts you when he has to go outside and is potty trained when you are at work all day. He enjoys his play time right before bed and isn't shy about alerting you when he feels his water bowl needs to be refreshed or if you are behind on his meals. He loves when visitors come over and give him attention. He doesn't mind children, but isn't so sure about smaller children/toddlers. Rocky loves to learn new tricks...who says an old dog can't learn new tricks...he is very smart and looking for a family deserving of his love.

Roly PolyPH ID: #6105
Hello Potential Parents,

My name is Rolie Polie Pug! I am from New Orleans! I was placed at the SPCA, a couple days after my birthday, and the choice they had was to find a rescue or euthanize me Thank goodness PugHearts stood up to get me! Not many rescues would make room for a blind old gentleman pug like me!

My foster mom, and transit mom say I am the perfect companion! I am house broken, and know a couple commands. I am legally blind, but I get around seeing shadows around the house and outside. After a couple days of traveling my surroundings, I have it down pact! I love being out in the yard, smelling flowers, and rolling in the grass. If you do not have a yard, I would be the perfect apartment pug!

I miss having my own family, and crave to be loved again. I promise to be the best gentlepug in the world if you give me a chance. Did I mention that I am completely house broken!


Roly Poly Pug

RooseveltPH ID: #5986
Foster Roosevelt found his way to PugHearts in June of 2019 after his owner was unable to care for him. At two years old, he is the sweetest Velcro pug that you can imagine. He immediately warms to strangers, and insists on sitting on anyone and everyone’s lap. He loves to play with soft toys and chase tennis balls in the yard, which has helped him to lose a couple of pounds since becoming a PugHearts pug. He plays well with other dogs, and could fit into any grumble. He’s also completely house trained and a huge Astros fan. What else could you ask for?

Roosevelt has mild hip dysplasia, but that doesn’t slow him down. He will need to take joint medicine and maintain a special diet for his allergies.

RosePH ID: #5537

Ruby 6PH ID: #5773
Ruby comes to PugHearts from a local shelter. She has diabetes and we are working to regulate her insulin. She, shockingly, also has a sewing needle lodged in the soft tissue of her neck. She is feeling better now that that has been removed.

She sure is a cute little girl. She is very active and doesn’t let her vision affect her in the least. I was quite surprised at how much vision she still has. She hit the floor running the first day and hasn’t slowed down since. I wasn’t really sure about fostering this beauty. I’ve had quite a variety of pugs with ailments over the years but I’ve never had a diabetic pug. I was really nervous but have found that it’s really not a big deal. She eats twice a day and I give her the shot while she’s eating. The only difference between me getting my insulin and her is I don’t wiggle around like she does.

Ruby will need to go through her heartworm treatment so she won’t be ready for a couple of months but she definitely is a pug that will make a fantastic addition to any family. She’s active and quite loving. She’s really fun, Ruby is so extremely happy, happy as can be with no worries in the world. It sure would be nice if the world took direction from her attitude.

Rudy 3PH ID: #5871
Bonded pair with Rosie

Gentle and easy going 10 year old boy Rudy enjoys spending his days with his gal Rosie and he would love to be cozied up right next to you!

SilasPH ID: #6012
Foster Silas is 9 years old and perfection in a pug, or any dog! He was an owner surrender and if I live to be 100 I will never understand why. I've had him for a few months now and there isn't enough great things I can say about him. He's a pretty big boy for a pug, >20 pounds and he is like a bull in a china shop because he gets so excited and just can’t seem to contain himself. He's just so darn cute when he has that look in his eyes that he's feeling feisty. He does like to curl up on my shoulder and cuddle but that doesn't last very long because my arms give out. He is learning that it's just as good to lay on the couch next to me with his chin on my legs. He is the most handsome boy ever and pretty much can get whatever he wants from me.

Silas has dry eye but other than that is completely healthy, he does need daily eye drops but a large percentage of pugs do. He would like to be able to find his furever home soon. He will make someone's life light up with his amazing personality and love, he just paints the world with happy colors. Silas is truly one of a kind. So please get those apps in so I don’t have to explain to everyone why I have 6 failed fosters.

SybilPH ID: #5638
Sybil comes to us from Mississippi

Sybil is a 12 year old, heart worm negative female. She is one of the Mississippi 6 rescued from a puppy mill. This girl is a sweetheart and loves people. She is truly a Velcro pug— loves to follow you, sit with you, snuggle with you, loves attention!

She is slightly vision impaired, but has excellent hearing. She is potty trained, crate trained, and heartworm negative. Don’t miss out on this senior lady with a heart of gold. What a great little buddy!

Teddy GrahamPH ID: #5995
Foster Teddy Graham is quite a handsome little NAP (Not A Pug). He’s a young guy (2) with a handsome face and a fantastic grille. I think he may be part wiener dog, he has super short legs and he’s long. But that’s just my guess. He’s a lover and gets along with everyone he has met. He loves to play but he also likes to cuddle, he’s a great mix of both. He’s been neutered and will be ready for adoption when he goes through his hw treatment. Keep this guy on your radar.

TessPH ID: #5501
Sweet Tess is an 11 year old female with spinal issues. She was surrendered due to changes in her family.

Tess is a beautiful fawn female, about 9-11 years old and owner surrendered when her family could no longer take care of her and her fur siblings. We can truly say Tess picks her human and becomes obsessed with them. She has picked her foster daddy lol. She pines for him when he is not in her line of vision. Her previous owners thought she was paralyzed and carried her around but Tessy walks just fine, especially if Foster Daddy leaves the room, Tessy gets up to follow him. She has either IVDD or DM. Fortunately she is continent of urine and stool and we take her out for frequent potty breaks. Unfortunately, due to being a spinal dog, she has chronic UTI's. She likes toys, sleeping in the big bed next to her person and head scratches. She will defend her food from the other pugs if they get too close, barks at the younger dogs when they get too rowdy and can get quite feisty. She is a special needs pug so probably will not get adopted. But that's ok, we will enjoy her for as long as needed.

ThomasPH ID: #6089
Please Welcome Thomas the Tank to PugHearts! He is 3 yrs old heartworm positive and will be losing his left eye due to previous trauma. He has been living in the streets and has no idea what living inside is or the most important part what LOVE is. But BOY IS HE SMART, he is already learning how to sit. He will be with me awhile since he has to go through heartworm treatment in a couple of months. He will also have to have a Neuter, Nares and a Dental done. Thomas will know what Love feels like, a warm bed to snuggle in, a touch of a human hand and to never be hungry again

TilliePH ID: #5724
Tillie is a 5 year old female from a local shelter. She is heartworm negative and dealing with a bladder infection. We found struvite crystals in her urine, so she is now on prescription food so that she will not have to deal with any further bladder issues. She is a pug mix...but we are happy to have been able to help save her life.

TobiasPH ID: #4629
Tobias is an extremely handsome older black pug. We think he’s about 12. He has dry eye and has some vision impairment but he can certainly still see. He’s HW negative so he’s ready to find his forever home.

From Toby (with some help from his foster): Hello! My name is PH Foster Tobias (but all of my friends call me Toby). I have been living with my foster family since August and have learned a lot of new things! I have learned to walk on a leash along with my pug foster brother and sister and now enjoy several short walks each day. I was having trouble seeing when I came to live with my foster family. My vision seems to be getting better since my foster mommy makes me homemade food to go along with my hard food and gives me vitamins and eye drops. My foster mommy taught me how to sit and she brags to everyone about how I have never had an accident in the house. We have a cat at my foster home and we get along great, too. Although I love my foster family, I am looking for a forever home. I love to sit on the couch and cuddle and would make a great companion for someone living alone. I’m a very laid back and loving pug. Won’t you please consider adopting me?

TrumanPH ID: #6045
Meet Truman! Truman is about 8 years old, he’s a small little guy, but with a big heart and playful spirit! He loves to roll around in blanket and chew on toy. He gets along well with most dogs, he’s not a fan of big dogs. He has limited vision, but learns his way quickly with his hearing. He is learning a crate, but isn’t a great fan. He loves to sleep in the big bed with his humans, but has to have his last few minutes of being feisty just before settling in! He is super cute, and has the best head tilt! He will be neutered in September, and will he ready for his own family!

TumblePH ID: #4878
Tumble is a 7 yr old female better known as Tummy or Tum Tum. She is heartworm negative and already spayed.

From Tumble's foster: Tumble is a special needs foster, not due to health issues (as she is VERY HEALTHY), but due to fear and trust issues.

Tumble comes to PugHearts scared of everything. She does not trust men at all and will bark and bark to let them know to go away. She will trust women and is the sweetest, gentlest, loving girl once you earn her trust.

I love and adore Tumble. Tumble and my husband....not so much. Tumble is looking for a patient lady that is willing to go slowly and allow Tumble to trust you completely.

She is housebroken, heartworm negative, kennels on command and wags her whole body when she is happy to see you. Tumble is learning to trust my husband through food. She is a typical pug and food is her motivator.

I know there is a perfect home out there for her....it is just going to take time and patience to find it......just like it will take time and patience for Tumble to trust a forever family.

ViolaPH ID: #5723
Sweet Viola comes to PugHearts from a local shelter. She is sadly, heartworm positive, hard of hearing and vision impaired...all at about 10 years of age.

Viola, sigh…….. This girl has completely stolen my heart. I saw her face in the picture and fell in love …. then she came to my house and I was completely lost. In the spirit of full disclosure, Viola has several issues, she’s blind, has severe heartworms, back issues, and anemic (from ticks); But she’s absolutely PERFECT! She hears just fine, so she doesn’t have any issues with getting around the house. It will be several months before she completes her heartworm treatment, but after that she sure will be a good lap pug for someone. She loves to be held and will just lay her head on my shoulder, kind of like she’s hugging me …… sigh. And she’s around 10 years old … Seniors ROCK!!!!!.

Viola has such a huge amount of love to give, if you can commit to only a fraction of what she will give you she will be truly loved and have exactly what we want for her.

WesleyPH ID: #6013
Wesley, ~ 8 years old, is a pug mix who was picked up as a stray. His physical exam reflects that he has had medical care in the past. He is heartworm negative and has had dental care. Wesley's behavior reflects that he is used to living inside as a pet. He perches on sofas and chairs and loves to snuggle. Wesley gets along with other dogs and can follow simple directions. Wesley is an affectionate fellow who would love to have a permanent home.

ZeldaPH ID: #5768
Foster Zelda is a puppy mill survivor and has had a hard life … until now. She is really tiny and extremely loving. She is obsessed with her human and wants to be held or at least close at all time. She would be very happy to be an only dog or one of a small pack. She has a ways to go with heart worms, spay and mammary tumor removal but she will be the perfect fit for some lovely family. She should be ready to start her search after January.
