AbrahamPH ID: #5223
Abraham is an 8 yr old fawn male. He was found wandering all alone. He is heartworm negative, but has some back issues that create a gait that looks a bit different. He does not appear to be in pain. His foster is keeping a close eye on him.

From Abraham's foster: Abraham is 8 years old, was found as a stray, drags his back foot slightly when he walks due to some back aches, neutered, and he is HW-. He's very quiet, but does have a small bark that he uses when we're eating in hopes that we'll share. He eats dry food (Taste of the Wild), enjoys pumpkin, yogurt, carrots, green beans, and eggs. As you can see this 25lb boy is not picky. He doesn't have an interest in toys, but LOVES to be petted and will tap you or even pull your hand toward him when he's ready for some love. He gets along great with other dogs, kids, does well in the crate, doesn't jump on furniture, and probably would do best in a house with few or no stairs. We have 3 steps to get to the back yard (they are spaced out) and he gets around just fine. He also has the best head tilt that will make you just melt.

AllenPH ID: #5347
Full Description Coming Soon!

AmeliaPH ID: #5293
Meet Amelia. She was found wandering in a neighborhood. She is in poor condition for a 7 yr old girl.

She needed a dental (already done) and several large masses were removed. She will be feeling better in no time.

From Amelia's foster: What a sweetheart! Miss Amelia Bedelia may have had a rough start in life, but she has not let that get her down. She is 7 years old, heartworm positive and has already been spayed. She gets along great with my other pugs and just wants to be with her people. She is learning to play with toys and her favorite past times are chewing on bones and snuggling with her favorite people. She is a sweet little lady and once she goes through heartworm treatment and has a dental, she will make a wonderful addition to your family!

AndrewPH ID: #5340
Foster Andrew is a very happy Pug guy. He has a great appetite. Plays well with the grumble. Sleeps in his crate.

Andrew still needs some work on his manners regarding potty issues.

That may improve after his neuter on Oct 16. .

He is heartworm positive and will have to go through heartworm treatment prior to being adopted. . His treatment is scheduled to start in mid November.

AnnabellePH ID: #5349
What’s not to love!! Annabelle a very sweet 5 years old heartworm negative. She gets along great with our grumble and will be your shadow all day! She is a finicky and slow eater. She does not like kennel but working on that. Don't let this doll slip by

AthenaPH ID: #5290
Athena is a fawn female that comes to PugHearts from the Rio Grande Valley. She has sustained massive trauma to her rear foot that will require the amputation of her leg. She is small and sick, but we will do all we can to help her heal and become the goddess she was born to be.

From Athena's foster: Athena's story is extremely sad but has a happy ending. She came to us from a shelter where she was dropped off severely underweight (really just skin and bones), covered in ticks and with open wound on her right hind leg. She was in a critical condition when she got to SLPH but the wonderful staff and Cindy were not about to give up on her.

A couple weeks went by, Athena put on a few pounds and looks so much better. Her leg started healing incredibly fast once she was feeling better and getting some good food. It is still not certain she will be able to keep it but we are doing all we can. In the unlikely event that she does get to keep it there is no chance at this point that the leg will ever be 100% again.

Now, that being said - none of the above slows her down one bit. She is a fighter like I have never seen, she runs around with the other dogs with no fear and tries to play tug of war with them. She loves being held and gives the best kisses. Really, you can hold her for hours. She never lost faith in humans despite everything she has been through. She is beautiful inside and out. I feel like regardless of what I write I will fail to describe her accurately. She amazes me every day and should be an inspiration to all of us.

AustinPH ID: #5216
Meet Austin. He is an 8 yr old fawn male that comes to PugHearts from a local shelter.

He is, sadly, heartworm negative and will have to go through heartworm treatment prior to adoption.

From Austin's foster: Meet Foster Austin!!! Austin is an adorable 8 year old male pug who was found wandering the streets in Katy. Austin’s perfect day is going for walks, snuggling with his human and tossing a ball or a stuffed animal around like a puppy.

He’s potty trained and crate trained. He gets along with children and the other dogs in his foster home but can be aggressive at feeding time. Austin is heartworm positive and will be available for adoption after he completes treatment. He takes a pill daily for arthritis. He won’t climb long flights of stairs but will happily let you carry him up or will wait for you at the bottom with his curly tail wagging.

BabyPH ID: #5070
Baby is a precious girl from the San Antonio area.

She is very attached to her people and is a "velcro" pug.

From Baby's foster: Baby is a sweet little old lady who loves to snuggle and lay in the warm sun. She is heartworm negative and already spayed.

She will walk around the house about 30 minutes before dinner time talking to you letting you know she needs food. She has a beautiful lion's mane fur and loves her bath and to be brushed.

BabycakesPH ID: #5319
Babycakes comes to PugHearts looking for a forever home.

She is a young girl with tons of energy.

She will be seen by the vet and we will update soon.

Babycakes is pending adoption. Congratulations Jamie and Peter

BambiPH ID: #4907
Bambi is an 11 yr old pug mix. She is heartworm negative and spayed.

She is scared and needs a quieter home with other dogs to help her feel more confident.

From Bambi's foster: Greetings, my name is Bambi and my bonded mate is Ray, we come as a pair. We lost our loving home when our owner suddenly passed away. Because we are different breeds, me being a Pug/Brussels Griffon and Ray being a French Bulldog we went to separate Rescue organizations and after numerous weeks of us trying to adjust it was clear we both needed to be back together, so here we are two peas in a pod.

I am a beautiful Pug/Brussels Griffon southern girl that has impeccable manners. I am beautifully house-trained, crate trained and also dog friendly. Neither Ray or myself have any destructive behavior what so ever. I enjoy sniffing around the yard, occasional sunbathing, rolling in the plush green grass, sleeping on the couch and I loves treats too! I am not much for for toys or playing, but more the timid, loving, gentle wall flower type personality. We would both flourish in a less active, calm home with someone who is home most of the time. We currently do not share a home with children and the hustle and bustle of children would be to much us.

Ray is a quite a handsome fellow, if I do say so myself. Ray is also very dog friendly and often lets the tiny Chihuahua's in his foster home lay right up on top of his back. Ray occasionally plays with squeaky toys when he is feeling frisky, but really enjoys patrolling the perimeter of his fenced backyard and napping the day away. Ray too is house trained and does best on a regular potty schedule.

We both love to follow you around the house as you do your daily chores and we are content sleeping in the bedroom at our foster home on those thick orthopedic beds. Best part, you won't hear a peep out of us all night, well ok, maybe a little snoring from Bambi, but Ray doesn't snore at all.

We hope you won't pass us by because we aren't young pups, we will bring sunshine to your home daily and we would be very grateful for a forever home. Don't wait a moment longer to apply for this sweet couple!

BarneyPH ID: #5325
Barney is a handsome, middle aged man that came to us as a result of that nasty Harvey. His family was displaced and needed to have a safe place for him. Barney is about 7-9 and a fairly large pug. I would guess he weighs about 25 pounds, and there’s not an ounce of fat on him. He loves to play and run around. He quite busy all the time and will need a home that is active and will want to include him on the fun.

Barney is HW negative and will be neutered the first week of October so he will be looking for his family in very short order. If you want a pug that is kind of rough and tumble that can hold his own this is your guy. I think he would be great with any family as long as they are active.

Betty BoopPH ID: #4848
Betty Boop was an owner surrender after her daddy passed away. She is a 3-4 year old fawn female cutie pie! When she falls asleep her little pink tongue slips out and is beyond adorable. She loves to play with toys either with the other dogs or by herself. She is a good bed sleeper and stays in one spot all night. She is crate trained, house trained and leash trained. She circles in excitement when its’ time for a walk outside. Boop is dominant with the other dogs (Specifically females), so a strong personality will need to keep her in check or pair her with a male in your home.

She is HW-, spayed and up to date on her shots. She does had two medical issues that are quite manageable. She will need Benedryl twice a day for life due to a mast cell that showed up on her leg. Second, she will need Pepcid once a day for life for her relaxed esophagus. And she must be held upright for 30 minutes after eating for the food to travel down into her stomach. We really enjoy meal time because she gets to snuggle with her human and we get to cuddle her right back! Can we say spoiled?

I can’t say enough how sweet and adorable this little girl is. She sticks to you like glue, plays tug-of-war with toys, loves to snuggle and would be a wonderful addition to any family. Betty Boop wants to go home with you right now!

BrucePH ID: #4713
Bruce is a 14 year old male owner surrender.

From Bruce (with some help from his foster): Bruce here and let me tell you I have been having fun getting lots of snuggles and love from foster mom. My short legs may fool a few but I still get around quite well for going on 14 years old. HW negative, get along well with other dogs and ready for a forever home. Have lost a little sight and hearing but you know how it is as we get older. If you are comfortable with a guy who is laid back and a little slow then I am your guy.

BudPH ID: #3305
Foster Bud is a 17-18 year-old hunk of love. He is a senior, but apparently no one told him because he still has a lot of energy. He may not see or hear so well anymore, but he can always smell a treat! He gets along great with the three other pugs and the one pit mix in our house. He loves children and doesn’t mind cats unless they run – then he must chase them! He is a totally lazy Velcro pug who wants to be on or near you. He is also perfectly content to hang out and chew on his Nylabone until naptime. He is truly a wonderful old man!

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!

BusterPH ID: #4718
I’m Buster; I’m heartworm negative and 8 years old. I love to lie around and be lazy! I don’t see very well but my foster mommy put different scents around the house so I could learn my way around pretty easily. It took me about three days and well, it’s like I’ve lived with them forever. I love to suckle on my doggie toys and if you pull on it I will play tug of war. I also enjoy playing with you if you put your hand under a blanket. I would probably do best with a house with older kids or without kids, although I get along with my human foster brother I’m not particularly fond of being picked up or moved. My human foster brother who is five likes to be the boss and well….I am an older gentleman set in my ways. I do get along fine though with my foster brothers!

I’m potty trained! When I learn my way around the house I actually bark to go outside. I love to be where you are but am perfectly content to sleep on the floor in or outside of a crate. I’m pretty much perfect, except for that silly dry eye that has caused me to lose quite a bit of my eyesight (NOT ALL of it though). I require drops twice a day for the rest of my life, BUT I promise to love you forever!!

CaitlynPH ID: #5258
Caitlyn is a precious girl that spent too much time having litter after litter of puppies.

She comes to PugHearts for a fresh start. Caitlyn is at our vet and we will update soon.

ChewbaccaPH ID: #5187
Chewbacca is a 3 year old Cairn Terrier mix. He comes to us with his sister Leia after their owner passed away. He is heartworm positive and will need to go through treatment prior to adoption. He is in otherwise good health. He will also need to be neutered. Update: Chewie has completed heartworm treatment!

Chewie is a sweetheart of a guy. He likes attention and will follow you around. He is your typical terrier, which means he is very active. He does like to chase cats, but doesn't bother them otherwise. He is an escape artist, and unlike most Pugs, he is able to jump a gate. He also has that Terrier nervousness, though that disappears once he feels comfortable with you. He does mark, but we are hoping that once he has been neutered his house manners will improve.

Update from Chewie's foster: Chewy is a super sweet boy. He is healthy and ready to be adopted! He has a personality similar to a Pug, he has his playful side, he is still young, and then he also LOVES a good snuggle!! He is crate trained, doggy door trained, and doing much better on marking in the house, but living amongst other bad boys doesn't help the situation. These little guys want to follow each others lead on that kind of thing unfortunately. He enjoys playing with the other dogs. Chewy is a heartbreaker, the type of guy you fall in love with instantly. Apply to adopt him today!!!

ClarencePH ID: #4821
Clarence is an 8 yr old male. He is heartworm positive and will have to go through heartworm treatment.

From Clarence's foster: Clarence is a sweet and gentle soul. He is a little nervous and shy around new people, but he has come a long way and will come out to greet them in his own quiet way.

Clarence likes to be with me, and he craves attention, but he doesn't like to be held much. He’d rather just lie next to me. He enjoys a good stroll around the back yard. He is good with other dogs. When he sees other dogs, he will go up to them to say ‘Hello.’ Clarence is potty trained, and he is crate trained. He currently sleeps in his crate, but he would do well sleeping with his humans in a bed, too. He was a bit underweight when he came in, but he is at a good weight now. He loves food. While you are preparing his food, he sits just outside the kitchen and waits patiently but makes the sweetest little whine that you can barely hear.

Clarence came to us heartworm positive, but he has had treatment. He has some arthritis in his hips. He is on medication for his heart due to complications from the heartworms as well as medicine (as needed) for coughing from collapsing trachea. He also needs eye drops for dry eye in his left eye.

Update July 2016: Clarence has completed his heartworm treatment and is now HW negative!

Cooter BrownPH ID: #4910
Cooter Brown (CB for short) is an 7 yr old pug mix from a local shelter.

He is heartworm negative and already neutered.

From Cooter's foster: Cooter Brown has been my foster for nearly a year now and I have to say it’s probably more my fault than his. When we attend adoption events he would rather be out of the pen than in so I end up holding him which does not attract a lot of interest so we don’t attend a lot of them. But!- when people meet him in person they love him. He is a truly great dog. He loves people and to be around his family. His favorite things are car rides, his toys, snuggling with his family and being outside. He is crate trained and potty trained, with a few mistakes here and there.

Cooter was dropped off by his previous owner at a shelter with another dog. At the last minute the owner decided to take the other dog home and leave Cooter. He was on his last day, set to be euthanized when PugHearts stepped in and saved him. He was abandoned because he likes to run out the door or an open gate when possible. In the year we have had him he has gotten a lot better. He doesn’t look for holes to dig out of or bolt every time the door is opened but he will trot off when given to chance. Since he is a boy dog, he is pretty easy to catch now because he has to pee on every tree he sees lol. In a perfect world I would like him to find a home with kids that will love and play with him or an active family that will include him in their lives.

Please don’t overlook Cooter because he is not 100% pug. He is 2000% awesome.

CourtneyPH ID: #5083
Courtney is a sweet female that came to PugHearts when she found herself without a home.

She is severe heartworm positive and will have to go through heartworm treatment before adoption.

Update: Courtney has completed her heartworm treatment, is spayed and is eagerly looking to find her forever home. She is only 4 years old and a small girl. Due to the severity of the heartworms she developed pulmonary hypertension that will require medication the rest of her life. She also has dry eyes and takes daily drops for that. Courtney loves to cuddle up next to you and knows how to use the doggy door to go outside. She is great with other dogs and loves receiving treats. She is crate trained but sleeps with us at night time. She will be attending adoption events soon , so come out and meet her!

DaphnePH ID: #5237
Daphne is a 3 yr old pug mix from a shelter in Texas. She is heartworm negative and already spayed.

Daphne is very fearful and needs a quiet, calm environment to learn to trust again. Please no small children in the home.

From Daphne's foster: Single Black and white female pug mix seeking family: I am HW-, spayed and had a nares surgery to help me breath. I am all of 3 years old and cute as a button. I weigh only 11 pounds and have the shortest legs ever. Don’t think that I cant move on those little stubs cause I can move like the wind. I like long walks (weather permitting), fruit and veggies in my dinner, my crate and to cuddle up with you on the couch once I know you are safe to be with. I don’t like children, other dogs, cats or pretty much any other animal. I am scared of being hurt. I need to be the ONLY love of your life. If you think you have what it takes to love me and only me please respond to this add. I will carefully read your responses and get back to you ASAP! Until then pug hugs and kisses.

DarrenPH ID: #5280
Meet Darren. This young man comes to PugHearts with major trauma to his eye. He will be cared for by our vet and will be feeling better in no time.

From Darren's foster: Darren loves to play with all his toys and loves to fetch the ball. He has a long tongue that sticks out when he is happy. He is a very lovable 3 year old male Pug. He is my velcro Pug who gives much affection and many kisses. He does very well in his crate, and he is very close to being completely potty trained. He loves his treats and will "sit" for one. He did very well with the kids in the Playpen at the World Series dog show. I am not sure how he interacts with cats as I do not have one. He interacts very well with my older Pugs, and he listens well. His food aggression has been getting better, and he knows his bowl and will not try to get into the others until they are all done. He does well on his leash and is showing his bark when he sees a stranger. He loves treats and looks forward to one after he goes outside. He loves Greenies as a reward. He is on a schedule and knows when it is time for bed. He will occasionally get in the bed with me but he doesn't stay long with me - just long enough to get a few cuddles and kisses, and then off to his bed for a sound sleep.

DeedeePH ID: #4754
Our newest senior is little DeeDee. She is 10-11 years old, and is battling some severe arthritis in her elbows. We are trying to see what we can do to improve her life at the moment. Sadly, we may not be able to, but you all know Pughearts well enough that we will do all we can to help her. We love her so much already, even just after 6 days. She will have the best life ever for however long God lets us keep her :)

DelilahPH ID: #4611
Meet Delilah, 13 year old female, winky, history of collapsing trachea & toenails grown into paws. She has some lumps and bumps. We will have her evaluated by the vet. She is a bit fluffy and will be introduced to a green bean diet.

From Delilah's foster: Delilah is a sweet senior gal just looking for a quiet place to relax. Delilah came to us when her elderly owner could no longer care for her. She is so well mannered, and likes to spend most of her day snuggled on a comfy dog bed. She has no issues with our other critters and enjoys exploring around the back yard. She is 13, so does move a little slower, and has a collapsing trachea, so is on medicine to help control coughing. The sweet one-eyed girl will steal your heart!

DenisePH ID: #5182
Denise is a 5 yr old female. She is heartworm negative and scheduled for her spay.

Denise comes to PugHearts with severe skin issues resulting from a flea infestation. She is happy to have been treated for those nasty fleas and the meds are already helping with the itches.

From Denise's foster: Miss Neesie, as we call her, is a squishy 5-year old girl who is just about perfect. She is beautiful, with great nose and neck wrinkles and folds, and a beautiful Puggy tail. She is very, very social and loves all people. She can work a crowd or just sit and cuddle one-on-one. She is an enthusiastic kisser. She gets along very well with her four foster siblings (Pug, Bugg, Peke, Boston), and instantly fit into the pack.

Denise has not had an accident in the house since her second day here. (She had a UTI when I picked her up, and after that cleared, she has been perfect.) Denise walks well on a leash, and we’re working on getting her accustomed to a harness. She has a good bit of energy despite being a little chunky, and is not a total couch potato Pug. Due to the very short muzzle and being slightly overweight, Denise gets uncomfortable in the heat, so we do short and shady walks.

Denise is working hard on her biggest vices: car rides and food obsession. She tolerates being crated in the house, but is vocal about riding in her crate; she doesn’t ride well loose, either. She is an eager eater, and I feed her separately because she will eat her food and then go help out on the other bowls. She follows me on each visit to the kitchen and demands food; she will bark and bump me with her nose to let me know she must be fed, NOW.

Denise came into Pughearts with itchy skin and ears, dry eye and UTI. All of these have improved with medications, and she should be finished with her oral meds on 3/18. She may need drops for her dry left eye for life, but she is super good about letting me put them in. She has a dental set for 3/30 at SLPH.

DillingerPH ID: #4316
Dillinger is a 7 year old black male who was released to us immediately by a local animal control facility because of an injury to his eye. He also had a large cyst on his neck, some one-sided facial paralysis, and an underdeveloped ear. We believe all these things are related to a rare birth defect that may have contributed to his eye problems as well. He has had surgery to remove the mass and the eye, and he has flourished in foster care. He is already neutered and heartworm negative.

From Dillinger's foster: He loves stuffed toys, and will fetch & retrieve or play on his own. He has a few “tics”: he is quite reactive to noises, and will bark and spin wildly when he hears something unexpected. He has learned to go up & down three stairs to the yard on his own and to jump off the couch, but he will not jump up on the couch on his own. He must be lifted on and off the bed. He snuggles in bed and on the couch, and has started playing a bit with our one dog who also likes toys. He pretty much ignores the rest of the pack (and vice-versa), unless they get excited and bark, which will set off his spinning. He will stand on his hind paws when he wants to be picked up or to give you a toy to throw. He has a super-shiny, mostly non-shedding coat and is a very handsome, winky boy.

He would probably do better in a 1-story home without a lot of noisy young children. He is fun, entertaining and affectionate. Far from the shy, cowering boy I first met, he is a cuddly, playful youngster who may need a bit longer to acclimate to new environments than others, but is well worth the effort. He is crate trained and will wake you at night by whining if he needs to go potty.

DrogoPH ID: #5316
Drogo is a 3 yr old male that comes to PugHearts from a shelter in the Rio Grande Valley.

Drogo came to us from the Valley and was in pretty bad condition. He had skin and eye issues that have mostly resolved. He had some pretty horrible eyes, but one has really cleared up well and he can see out of it. I believe he is blind in the other one. He had sores all over this body but that has also cleared up, he is beginning to grow hair back and in a few more weeks will start to look like a pug should. The only hurtle we have left now is to get the little guy to gain some weight. He’s a little pug to begin with but he’s very thin. However he eats like a horse so it’s only a matter of time before he starts to bulk up.

Unlike his namesake, Drogo does not have a dominant or aggressive gene in his DNA. He is the most gentle and loving little guy. He does like to play with the other pugs but if given the choice he prefers to curl up on my lap or next to me on the arm of the couch. He does seem to like having other dogs around him but I think with the right amount of attention he could do exceptionally well in a home without dogs. He has never been around children but I think he would be GREAT with them. He’s just so sweet I think he would be a good companion for little ones. He will be at the events beginning on September 30 so please come on out to meet him. You just may meet the King of your Heart.

DuchessPH ID: #5281
Duchess is a sweet girl that has been living outside in the heat.

From Duchess' foster: Duchess is a 5ish black female that was being kept outside, in Texas, in July :-( She has adapted exceptionally well to being in a home with AC and beds. Her skin issues have almost completely resolved and the bleached out hair on her back and rear end is almost completely gone now.

Duchess is a super loving girl. She is almost constantly next to me or on my lap, a velco pug. As you probably expect from her living situation she has heartworms. She will be treated and be ready to find her forever home sometime in November. She just seems to be so grateful to be cared for and in a home. She goes outside to potty but she is not lounging around on the patio like the others, she is ready to come right back in the house.


Duchess is pending adoption. Congratulations Holly!

EdgarPH ID: #5346
Edgar is a one and a half year old, heartworm positive, fawn male. He is scheduled for his big boy surgery the first week of November and awaiting heartworm treatment around the beginning of 2018. Edgar is a small boy, needing to gain a few healthy pounds. He loves sleeping in the bed with his humans and will follow them anywhere they go. He is great on a leash, gets along well with other dogs, and enjoys playing with toys. His under bite and big brown eyes will melt your heart instantly.

**Edgar is spoken for pending completion of neuter/heartworm treatment. Congratulations to his foster family!

ErniePH ID: #5337
Ernie is a 2 year old charismatic fawn male. Ernie lives to play with toys and cuddle. Ernie is smaller than the average pug, but has a big personality. Ernie is a spunky guy, but does get tired out. Ernie’s favorite spot in the house is the adult bed. Ernie would make a wonderful addition to a household in search of a pug!

Happily, Ernie is heartworm negative and was just neutered.

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)

FrankPH ID: #5102
Frank is a 10 yr old male surrendered to the shelter at 10 yrs old age due to a new cat in the house.

From Frank's foster: Hi there! I am Friendly Frank. Sometime I am called “Frank the Tank”. I am looking for my forever home. Are you my match? I am housebroken, crate trained, can sit and shake hands. I love to sit by you and play too! I am a ten year old apricot male and I am good alone, with other dogs, and kids. My foster family thinks I am an awesome pug and such a good boy. I melt in their laps for snuggles. I do the most adorable snorts for them and I have a cute happy dance to greet them every morning and when they get home. I am a smart pug who is a solid nap buddy and playmate. I also like Purina and slow walks on the beach. Give me a ring if you think we are a match.

July update: If you need someone reliable to guard your grill or smoker, Frank's your guy!!! He's sweet, playful, snugglicious, smart, house trained, crate trained, and gets along with everyone, unless "everyone" happens to be a cat or squirrel. He's super easy to live with, and don't you need that in your life?!?!?

FridaPH ID: #5341
Full Description Coming Soon!

GidgetPH ID: #1027
Gidget is a 10 year old black female. She is owner surrended through no fault of her own. She is heartworm negative. She came to us with some skin issues that are resolved for the most part under medical care. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on her vaccinations.

From Gidget's foster: She is a delight to have . She walked into our home and within a few days adjusted to her new life. She gets along well with our other dogs. She is very good with our grandchildren.

She is house broken. Enjoys her walks. She is more active then the average 10 year old. Loves to play with her toys and of course get as much one on one time for cuddling and belly rubs.

GusPH ID: #5327
My name is Gus. I am a 10 year old hunk of love! I am looking for a quiet retirement home. I enjoy being at your side 100% of the time. My foster dad says I'm a velcro pug all the way. I do not like being crated so I make sure to not potty inside but only outside when you come back from running your errands. I don't care much for the cats or dogs in my foster home so I stay to myself. I rarely fuss unless its to get your attention. My foster mom tells me I need to take 2 Benadryl a day for life along with eye drops for my dry eyes. I don't fuss I just let her do her thing and she rewards me with a treat! Did I mention I absolutely LOVE car rides? I put some pep in my step when my foster mom opens the door and says let's go for a ride. Can't forget those tummy rubs! I will lay back and let my foster mom do her thing. They feel great!! So what else can I say? I'm 100% perfect and you 100% need me.

HarleyPH ID: #5049
Harley is a 14 year old owner surrender. He is heartworm negative and already neutered.

From Harley's foster: Harley is a 14 year old fawn male, who is healthy, up-to-date on his shots, and ready for adoption.

Harley was surrendered when his owner could no longer care for him. His life has been great and he’s very well adjusted. He’s potty trained and learned the doggie door immediately. He shows no cognitive or physical impediments and has no medical issues.

Because his owner purchased him, we know that Harley turned 14 on October 3, 2016. Don’t let that grey hair fool you, this senior is nowhere near slow or old. He runs around the backyard like a puppy and loves to be right beside you all the time. He’s like Velcro. He’s very low maintenance and easy going.

HarveyPH ID: #5328
Harvey comes to us from the Rio Grande Valley. He was attacked by another animal and has severe trauma to both eyes, his ears and neck.

He had to have a blood transfusion and ICU care prior to being sent up to Houston after the hurricane.

Harvey is recovering well. Harvey lost both eyes to the severe trauma he suffered. He has regained his energy and is a cuddling expert. Harvey has no issues with being blind and is right with the rest of the pugs in my house; begging for food, playing with toys or looking for a lap.

He is severe heartworm positive and will have to go through heartworm treatment prior to being adopted.

Harvey is pending adoption. Congratulations Jamie and Krystal

HeathPH ID: #5348
Hello Everyone! My name is Heath. Due to the hurricane, my family was unable to care for me and knew I would find a wonderful new home through PugHearts.

I am a 2 year old, heartworm negative, fawn male. I am scheduled to have my big boy surgery the first week of November. I have loads of energy and love to play just as much as I love a good nap. I tolerate a crate, but prefer to sleep in bed with my humans. I am initially uncomfortable with strangers and will bark to defend my territory. My fosters are working with me on my manners regarding food. I am learning to not be protective, but I need patience and a strong family to reinforce good behavior. I will follow you all over the house and lay in your lap for hours if you let me. I have so much love to offer a furrever family and cannot wait to meet you!

HollyPH ID: #5009
Holly is a 12 yr old female. She comes to PugHearts after her owner passed away and there was no one to care for her.

She is bonded to her brother Toby (8 yrs old).

She is definitely the bossy one of the pair and loves to have all the attention.

She is heartworm negative and spayed.

From Holly (with some help from her foster): Hey yall, Holly here, I'm Looking for my forever home and I am ready to go. My brother and I were left at a kennel after out person passed away. We were loved and cared for. I'm about 11 years old. and weigh about 16 lbs. Foster mom say I am a coppery color, I stand out in the crowd. I am house broke and have learned how to go in and out the dog door. I will play with toys from time to time, but I do like my naps. I am fine the other pugs, Cat , and kids . I like to cuddle next to you. I do love my brother and he follows me where I go If I go out the dog door he follows and I follow him if he goes out. I love my brother. We must be adopted together.

HowardPH ID: #4943
Howard is a sweet gentleman who was surrendered to PugHearts when his owner was no longer able to take care of him.

From Howard's foster: Howard is about 7 years old. He is a perfect pug gentleman, house trained, doggy door trained. His forever home will want a squishy pug that likes to be your constant companion. Howard will only go to a home that allows him to sit with them on the sofa, (most of the times the back of it) and sleep in bed with them. He does not snore and is a gentleman in bed. He does like to sleep on pillows, so if you don’t want to share yours, then give him one of his own. He has a good appetite and can go several hours without needing to go outside. He likes to walk on a leash and loves to take car rides. He would do well as an only dog, but gets along with others in the household. He doesn’t really like to play much, so while he tolerates a youngster, he would not be a playmate for a young dog.

JdPH ID: #5186
JD is a senior gentleman looking for a place to call him own.

From JD's foster: JD is a handsome senior boy at 10 years old. He is completely housebroken and healthy, other than some typical older gentleman kind of issues (aka a little stiff in the bones, and a little dry eye :). He lives with other dogs and cats peacefully, and really just would like a good soft place to snuggle with his human! This sweet little boy will steal your heart! Will you be his forever home?

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!

JediPH ID: #5305
Jedi is a smaller 12-year old male who has some neurological issues that make the mornings a hard part of his day. Once he gets going, he seems to be more limber and is a great tail wagger. Like his partner, Roscoe, Jedi enjoys pats and rubs. He looks like he has a perpetual grin and will sidle up to get head pats. Jedi enjoys meal time a lot. House trained, Jedi is a total sweetheart of a pug who would be happiest in a quiet home taking naps with Roscoe.

Sadly, Jedi is a single guy now...as his friend Roscoe passed away during a nap.

Jedi has had neck surgery and is doing great and acting like a much younger man now.

JudePH ID: #5300
Jude is a 1 yr old male that is sadly already heartworm positive. He is learning to be an inside pet and will go through heartworm treatment prior to adoption.

From Jude's foster: Jude is a one year old fawn male who is full of energy and love. He was an owner surrender and used to only live outside, but now he is learning quickly how to live in a home with a family. He is having fun playing chase and fetch with the children and gets along with the other dogs in the house. He has one of the cutest and curliest pug tails I have ever seen. He is heart worm positive and will be receiving his treatment soon.

JuliusPH ID: #5234
Julius is an older male that comes to PugHearts from a local shelter. He is about 9 years old, heartworm negative and already neutered.

From Julius' foster: Julius is a senior fawn male who is approximately 9 years old. He is HW-. He does have a spondylitis of his back so is a little arthritic but he does fine with daily Rimadyl and a good glucosamine MSM supplement. He should not be allowed to jump from sofas but he does like to sit next to his human on one.

This is one delightful dog. He is so mild and sweet and gets along with all of the dogs. There is not a mean bone in his body. He is beautifully house trained and uses either the dog door or goes to the back door to be let outside. He is not a big fan of being in a crate and he doesn't seem to need one. He is such an agreeable dog. He is pretty independent so it seems he would be fine as an only dog but he might like a buddy who plays a little but is low key like him. He loves to sit next to me and have his head and neck scratched. He also loves our big Elmo doll and will suck on Elmo's hand or foot when tired.

So if you are looking for a senior dog who is a wonderful companion and so well mannered please consider Julius, our JuJu.

JustinPH ID: #5334
Justin is a 4-5 yr old male that comes to PugHearts from a local shelter. He is dealing with some skin issues and will be seen by the vet.

We will update as soon as we can.

KingPH ID: #4459
King is about 15 year old fawn male. He is blind from untreated dry eye, has severe arthritis and multiple tumors that we suspect to be Mast Cell Cancers. He is heartworm negative and needs a dental. The tumors were removed.

He was being listed as "free to a good home" and a PugHearts person was good enough to let us know.

He is now safe and will be well cared for until a forever home comes along to allow this sweet gentle man to live the rest of his life as the King he should be.

From King (with some help from his foster): You know the "The King" was Elvis Presley so I must have some of his characteristics, with King as my name. One, I'm portly, second I do have a sweet voice but rarely do you hear it except for special occasions. I used to eat from the table but all that changed when I moved in here. Can you believe green beans and kibbles is the new diet. She doesn't know "the king" likes what ever the people are eating. Age has taken over a bit and at about 15, I don't see anything but shadows and don't hear but I can find the pet door just fine. Give me a couple Benadryl and this helps the allergies as well as the arthritis. You know getting old is tough but I still have a "hunk of love" to share with a family.

LamontPH ID: #5322
Lamont is joining PugHearts from the Rio Grande Valley.

Hi, my name is Lamont. I am a 3 year old black and brindle male pug. I have several health concerns: heartworm positive, enlarged heart, dry eye, spondylosis/arthritis, dermatitis, and collapsing trachea. I am an anesthesia high risk patient. I will be on eye drops, Rimadyl and Enapril for life. Even with all these health concerns, I am a sweet, laid back pug.

Independent, I like being near my human; not a velcro pug. I love being petted, belly rubs, snuggles and naps. Super chill, I am passive with other dogs and have not shown any aggressive behaviors. I like kids and adults alike.

I am potty trained and let my foster mom know when I need to go out. The only time I talk is when it is important, otherwise I am a quiet pug. I will not walk into the crate, but don't fight or bark when my foster mom puts me inside. Food motivated, I love food and will do a wiggle when it's dinner time.

I will be available after my HW treatment. If you are looking for an independent, lovable, laid back pug, I am your pug!

LattePH ID: #5209
Latte is a 10 year old that is looking for a comfy couch and quality snuggle time. Latte is heartworm negative and dealing with dry eye.

From Latte's foster: Latte is about 9 years old. Blind in one eye and maybe some in the other eye.

He is a little bit of a loner. He eats very well in his crate. Latte prefers sleeping with me and his other Pug friends. Very good with other dogs and children. Latte would be a very good companion to sit and be a TV buddy.

LawrencePH ID: #5308
Lawrence is a 10 year old fawn male, heartworm negative. He is a laid back boy, loves walks and loves his treats. He does not play with toys, he likes to sleep, besides eating it is his favorite past time.

He has the deepest bark I have ever heard from such a small dog and he will let you know if you are not giving him your full attention.

He has been neutered and is ready for his forever home.

He gets along well with other dogs and cats. He would fit will in a home with older kids. He is not fast paced so someone laid back would fit well with his lifestyle. He will need eye drops once a day for the rest of his life and medicated baths once a week. He will need medicine for his trachea issues once or twice a day, he is taking Temaril P once a day at the moment.

If you want a Velcro pug then Lawrence is for you. Lawrence has a sister named Lucille, they are a bonded couple and will be adopted together.

LaylaPH ID: #4936
Layla is an 13 year old senior female. She is bonded to her brother Spike (also 13 yrs old). They are both heartworm negative and in good health.

From Layla's foster: Layla is a 13 yr old, young at heart female who is bonded to Spike (her brother is from the same litter). She is heart worm negative and has an old fracture to her right front elbow that was not attended to properly when weeks old. This hardly slows her down! She loves to run and do zoomies in the back yard and inside the house. She is a joy to have around. She's a feisty girl that only has eyes for her human. She is extremely smart. She learned to use a doggie door in no time at all. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?? She's potty trained and loves to play with plush toys. She does tire easily, but enjoys a free ride on her stroller with her brother Spike. They are a sight to behold! Her eyesight and hearing are intact. She has a very sweet disposition and enjoys frequent belly rubs. You will fall in love with her antics right away as she is cute as a button with her huge brown eyes. Like her brother, Layla does not enjoy being held for long periods, but loves her alone time with her human. Love this little gal!!

Leia is a fawn female. She and her brother Chewbacca came to us after their owner passed away and they ended up at a shelter. She is probably around 6-8 years old. She is not spayed yet. She is heartworm positive and will need treatment prior to adoption.

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!!

From Lolita's foster: Hi, I’m about 6 years old, and love to be with my person. I have learned to go in and out the dog door here at my foster home. I do like having other dogs around.

She's learning to walk on leash & potty in the grass; gaining skills on the grass portion; walks are still a bit like flying a kite, but baby steps.

MaddoxPH ID: #5283
Maddox comes to PugHearts after he was found wandering all alone. Happily, he was found by a kind man that called us to help keep him safe.

From Maddox's foster: Meet Foster Maddox. This smutty faced pug is 7 years old and is a fur ball full of energy! He would do well with an active family and is good with other dogs. He has one of the curliest tails in the land! Being close to his human is one of this favorite things just above being given treats and pets.

He knows how to use a dog door and we are currently working on crate training. He has not had an accident inside his crate and treats are a perfect way to lure him inside one. He will do almost anything for treats!

Foster Maddox is unfortunately heart worm positive and will have to be treated and neutered before being available for adoption. His neuter is scheduled for August 9, 2017.

MargaretPH ID: #5344

Black female, owner surrender due to a move.

Marjorie is a sweet 7 year old little girl who loves to cuddle. She likes to be queen of the castle, always climbing on the highest pillow on the bed. She is very well-mannered and completely house-trained, and she gets along great with our other dogs, though she has been known to try and steal food from their bowls. She needs daily eye drops for her dry eye. She is heartworm negative.

Update from Marjorie's foster: Marjorie is a love and we just adore her! While she loves to be with her human at all times, she is has the best manners and will always tell you when she needs something. She is known to be an alpha and would probably do best in a smaller grumble or as an only pug, although she does very well in our house with our assortment of dogs!

She weighs 25 lbs, has yeasty skin, needs a dental, has bilateral ear infections, nasal discharge, and to top it off, untreated dry eye.

From Mavis' foster: Mavis is a seven year old, HW- fawn girl who was found wandering alone. She does have limited vision due to dry eyes and a bit of arthritis, but she does not let that stop her. Mavis is completely house broken and has not had a single accident. She is a very happy loving girl with the most epic under bite and a tongue that goes on for miles – she gives the best kisses! Recently she has started showing us her sassy side, and it is absolutely adorable. She gets along well with other dogs, but she would do fantastic as an only dog.

Mavis is scheduled for an episioplasty in late July 2016 and will be ready for her forever home shortly after. Anyone would be lucky to add this truly quirky little girl to their family. She came to us as a diamond in the rough and she is shining up to be a true gem.

Mona is a young fawn female found wandering all alone.

From Mona (with some help from her foster): Hi, my name is Mona. I was found wandering and was taken to Pughearts. I am about 4 years old with a few health considerations. My health conditions are as follows: heart worm positive, pneumonitis (scarred lungs), arthritis, chronic dry eye, and possible hip dysplasia. You would never know I have all these medical conditions because I don't act sick at all. I am an excellent patient and stand still for my eye drops. My foster mom and dad pick me up and put me down from the couch. Standing still as a statue, I am very cooperative in the bath. My foster mom thinks I am the sweetest pug ever! I am low-key and very docile; great on the leash. I love to be petted and it's never enough for me. The vacuum doesn't scare me either. Not a real barker, I do softly talk and sometimes howl gently. I do not like being in the crate, but will go in when asked and given treats. I groom and lick the other pugs in the house and cuddle up with them. I love to chew Nylabones and stuffed toys. The yellow pug egg is my favorite! Kisses are rare, but I do occasionally give them. I have not shown any signs of food aggression or any other type of aggression towards other dogs in the house. I have taken very well to potty training with the rare indoor accident. A true Velcro pug, I am happiest sitting with my foster mom and dad being petted. I am an excellent companion and look forward to meeting my forever family. I'm currently available for adoption and finished heartworm treatment 9/15/2017.

He is a quick learner, almost immediately learned the doggie door. He does not like rough playing or fighting between other dogs, he will immediately go over there and try to Defuse The Situation by barking at them. He's a moderator. He loves to cuddle and give kisses and sleep at the foot of the bed or on a nice comfy doggy bed on the floor next to you. We have been told that he has spondylosis, which is a form of arthritis, in his lower back and legs but you would never know by his activity level and how he can jump on the sofa and bed. He does take pain pills from time to time if he looks a little stiff. He has been such a joy and our house.

Nugget is a black male. He 10 years old. He is heartworm negative. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From Nugget's foster: Nugget is a 10 year old pug man…but I don’t think anyone has told him his true age! He is so active and happy – and quite the talker! He has the funniest “roo, roo, roo” talk that it will make you smile, even on your worst days! He loves to play with stuffed animals, and he gets along great with our other dogs and cat. He was an owner surrender, and seems to have been well cared for all of his life. He likes his “den” (crate) even when we are home and just watching tv, he will often just retreat with a toy to his area. He’s slowly enjoying more couch time though! He is housebroken. He is FULL of personality! Please consider opening your heart and home to this older gentleman….you will not be disappointed!

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

She is a 2 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.

PaigePH ID: #5332
Paige is a 2-3 year old black female. She comes to PugHearts as an owner surrender. Paige likes to be the alpha female in the home and tell all the other dogs what to do.

Pending adoption - Congratulations Jamie and Peter.

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.

She loves to be close to you. She is friendly to other dogs, kids and all people. Pickles is healthy and heartworm negative!! Little Pickles doesn't even snort or snore! She is going to make someone or some family very happy!

Pickles is the cutest chug you will ever meet! She has the most amazing personality and loves to be with her human. She is completely housebroken and has perfect manners. She is already spayed.

PixiePH ID: #5274
Meet PH Pixie! She's 7 years old, heartworm negative and has a back injury from long ago.

From Pixie's foster: Meet sweet Pixie. Pixie is 7 years old, and has had a very rough life prior to being saved by Pughearts. Pixie lived her life in a cage as a breeder dog. She had countless litters of pups with little human interaction, so she is just now learning what being loved feels like. She has an old back injury which makes her drag her back legs some, but she gets around really well. She seems to be housebroken, but likely will need continued reinforcement. She loves other dogs, and will just need a patient, calm environment where she will learn to be a cherished family member. Her adorable snaggletooth will steal your heart! She is otherwise healthy and ready to live the life all pugs deserve!

Pumpkin NapPH ID: #5354
Introducing Miss Pumpkin NAP

This little hot mess is just what a pumpkin spice latte should be - spicy and feisty. She is ALL PUPPY

She is 4 weeks old and shaped like a Tonka Truck.

She takes a toy in her mouth and violently shakes it. She growls and barks at me and tears my fingers up with her chewing. She learned to climbed her out of her crate already and is now in a tall pen. She is a hoot!

QuinnPH ID: #5313
Quinn is a 5 yr old male that comes to PugHearts with some significant skin issues.

He has been poorly cared for and has a yeast overgrowth on his skin with possible demodex (non-contagious mange).

He is being treated for the skin issues and will be feeling better soon.

He will be neutered and have a much needed dental prior to being ready for adoption.

RemingtonPH ID: #5330
Remington was found following Hurricane Harvey and will be hanging out with PugHearts in hopes that his family will come looking for him.

Remington is an older gentleman and will be seen by our vet to make sure he is doing well while we wait.

SassyPH ID: #5185
Sassy is a precious female that comes to PugHearts from a local shelter.

She will be seen by the vet and we will update soon.

From Sassy's foster: Sassy is a small (14lbs) 2 year old female. She is a cute little girl who wasn't taken very good care of. She is house trained and crate trained and loves attention from her humans. She gets along well with others. She has dry eyes and will need eye meds the rest of her life. She will be going in for nares and spay surgery soon. She is heartworm positive so she will be with us for awhile before she is able to be adopted. She is a sweet little girl who wants to be loved and spoiled by her humans. Won't you consider adopting this little princess?

ShaqPH ID: #5345
Shaq is a young pug mix who came to us from the Valley. He is scheduled for his neuter on 11/7, and is recovering from an upper respiratory infection. This boy is well-behaved, doesn't mark, and loves to play and snuggle. Did I mention he is tall? 18 inches at the shoulder and should probably be around 30 lbs once he fills out a bit. He plays gently and submissively with the other dogs, knows sit, down, and shake, and will fetch for days. An ideal exercise buddy, he loves to walk the trails, and is a calm and quiet car rider. Is your family debating adopting a pug vs. a bigger dog? He is the best of both in one adorable package, and you can pet him without bending over!

SparklesPH ID: #5268
Sparkles is a fawn female pug mix.

From Sparkles' foster: Sparkles is a two-year-old heartworm negative pug/Chihuahua mix. She is very much a Velcro pug. She loves to be with her human as much as possible. She will chase a tennis ball until the end of time, happily returning it each time. At night she is your snuggle buddy. She will curl up next to you and not move all night. A perfect home for sparkles would likely be older kids or a kid free home as she gets nervous around young kids. She is wonderful with cats and other dogs. Anyone would be blessed to have this beautiful girl in their family.

Foster Sparkles has a personality that out shines the brightest star. She is such a fun little Chug. She is very playful with the other fosters, soft toys and her human. But she also loves to be loved. When she wants me to pet her she sticks her snout (yes, she really has a snout) under my hand so I will pet her. She is going to be a fantastic addition to a young active family. She will be able to keep up with any activity you want her to participate in.

TheodorePH ID: #5251
Theodore is a sweet older gentleman that comes to PugHearts looking for a comfortable place to spend his golden years. He will be seen by the vet and we will update soon.

From Theodore's foster: Theodore or Theodorable, as I call him, is approximately 10 years old and is such a well behaved gentleman. He is a darker fawn color, almost apricot without being orange. He has the cutest face, and whitest teeth I have ever seen...and don't get me started on those eyes of his!

After being with us a little more than 2 weeks, his personality is really starting to bloom. It took him a few days to realize that he was safe and wanted in our home, and he has since become our little shadow. This past week he has really started to open towards us emotionally, he now enjoys snuggling while watching TV and cozying up to our other pets. I have 4 other dogs and 2 cats and he is well behaved around them all. Not sure how he does with kids since we are empty nesters.

He does have some back issues, but this doesn't slow him down in the slightest. When the other dogs bark and run, he is right there bringing up the rear of the pack. He is quiet, and has yet to bark at anything, but will whimper a little when he wants attention, is hungry or needs to go out.

While he is house trained, his back issue causes some leaking so he wears boy bands with pads, but when he goes out, he will take care of his business and may need a little help making sure his bladder is empty.

If you are looking for the perfect gentleman, who is chill and lovable, then look no further than this snuggle pug.

TimothyPH ID: #5342
Timothy, Tiny Tim, I laughingly call him (irony; 28 pounds of NOTHIN BUT BIG), is a fawn stunner with MASSIVE, velvet, wrinkly head. He's a 7 year old, HW- male who was found dumped and dodging Harlingen traffic. A Good Samaritan picked him up, then Tim made his way to Houston via PugHearts transport angels. He has since shed all his nasty fleas, ticks and outdoor life entirely. He's fast grown accustomed to couch cuddling, cable and air conditioning, and swears there is no going back. His neuter is 9/28. He appears house broken, a cheerful chatter, sits, and shakes. He does have severe vision impairment, so will need daily eye drops for life (to prevent worsening, not to restore), and an appropriately suited home. He does well on leash, in the car, with other pugs, and navigates surroundings on his own, once oriented. Fair warning: He is a back sleeper and world class snorer. Ear plugs anyone? I've even found him sleeping on the coffee table ??????. He's of the ultra chill variety; a napper vs. a player. Epic nose roll. Will walk and potty in the rain!!!! My kind of dog, so inquire soon!

TinaPH ID: #4650
Tina is a 3 yr old female. She is heartworm negative and already spayed.

TinkerbellPH ID: #4918
Tinkerbell is a young female that was surrendered to PugHearts when she found herself needing a new home.

She is heartworm negative.

Tinkerbell is a quiet reserved pug who is very Velcro. She is a total sweetheart who is happiest in her human’s lap. She is completely potty trained and has impeccable manners. Her only bad manner is trying to help herself to your food but we are working on that. Otherwise she is perfect. She is already spayed.

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?



TobyPH ID: #5010
Toby is an 8 yr old male. He comes to PugHearts after his owner passed away and there was no one to care for he and his sister (Holly) any longer.

He is bonded to his sister Holly (12 yrs old).

He is a laidback gentleman and loves to be near you.

Toby is heartworm negative and neutered.

From Toby (with some help from his foster): Toby here. I'm 7 or 8 years old. I love to play with toys, boy do I love to play with toys. I am about 20 lbs. Foster mom was surprised because I look bigger than I am. I do love to be with people and will cuddle right up with you. I am good with the other pugs, the cat and kids. I sometimes will nap with one of the other pugs here, but I can see my sister and as long as I know where she is then that's ok. I do love my sister. We must be adopted together

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.

VelmaPH ID: #5310
Velma is a young lady that comes to PugHearts from the Rio Grande valley area. We know she has a severe bladder infection. She will be seen by the vet and we will update soon.

Velma is a little bit of a pug, I would guess around 10 pounds. She is one of the prettiest little girls I have seen. She is petite and so are her features. Velma loves to be loved and most of all she loves to give kisses. She wants to be on my lap all the time and if she can’t be there she will just sit beside me and lick my arm and stare at me with those big, brown eyes.

She may be a little pug but she will be a huge addition to her forever family.

VincentPH ID: #5352
Vincent is about 5 months old puggle (pug and beagle mix). He is full of energy just like he should be at his age! He is very attentive. If he's doing something you don't appreciate, all you have to say is "hey" and he looks at you all ashamed and sits down thinking about what he did, lol. He plays well with other dogs. He did fantastic with my 8 year old pugs - never knew they had so much energy!!

He knows sit and listens every time even without a treat! He seems to know lay down too but it's not a reliable. He is very eager to please and velcro. At all times he just looks at you like you are the best thing ever! He needs to work on potty training but other than that he's perfect. He loves being held and snuggled. He will whine in the crate for a little bit but once he lays down he sleeps through the night! Get your app in for the smartest puppy out there!

VirginiaPH ID: #5324
Virginia comes to us from a different rescue.

She is 2 years old and full of life and love.

She has flea allergies, so will need to be kept flea free. She is heartworm negative and already spayed.

VivianPH ID: #4794
Vivian is a 7-8 yr old female. She comes to us with significant hydrocephalus and does have neurological issues related to that. She is heartworm negative and we are considering her a special needs adoption. However, that does not slow Vivian down at all.

From Vivian (with some help from her foster): Hi...I'm new here! My name is Vivian and I'm 7-8 years old....being a lady we'll stick with 7! ;-) I haven't ever had my own bed before but thanks to the fabulous Amazon wish list shoppers I'm really enjoying this one that I get to call my own. This foster home is pretty cool, I like the teenager...he doesn't smell TOO bad! They say I have a neurological problem...all that means to me is my walk is a little funny and my Pug head tilt is even more adorable than usual!!!

Special Notes

Vivian has hydrocephalus and consequently has neurological issues

VixenPH ID: #3323
Vixen is a brindle female pug mix. She appears to be a "Bug" or a Pug and Boston mix. She is 3 years old. She came to us from an out of state shelter. She is heartworm negative.

WandaPH ID: #5259
Wanda is a sweet young pug mix (Chihuahua mix maybe) that comes to PugHearts from a shelter.

She is heartworm positive and will be seen by our vet. We will update soon.

From Wanda's foster: Meet Wanda!! Wanda is, well, not a pug as you can see! She is a 3 year old chihuahua mix, but has all the good qualities of a pug! She is sweet, cuddly and playful! She is very smart and housebroken. She likes to play on her own or with her doggie friends. She is heartworm positive, so will be going through treatment prior to adoption. Wanda would love a family who wants to play and cuddle with her! Don't miss out on this little jewel of a dog!

WilsonPH ID: #5115
Meet Wilson, He was found as a stray and taken to a local shelter. Wilson has some hip issues and is very weak at the moment.

Wilson is only 4 years old, severe heartworm positive and dealing with old injuries that are causing his hips and back to be sore and weak.

From Wilson's foster: Wilson is a love muffin! Wilson was timid and frightened when he first came to live here, but he has relaxed and is much more secure and happy! He is 4yrs old, crate trained, neutered, mostly house trained, loves to sit with his humans, and gets along with all the dogs in the house. I am sure he would be great with children as he is so gentle.

He does have some weakness in his back end, but that does not stop him - he prances in the yard, runs, jumps down, wags and curls his tail. His only restriction seems to be jumping up on furniture.

He will make a perfect companion as an only dog or in a grumble!

WinniePH ID: #5335
Foster Winnie is in the house!! Say hello to this little beauty. She is 5 years old HW-! She will have her big girl surgery middle of October. She is a very laid back pug that loves attention! She is a great listener as I keep telling her what a great life she will soon have she will find her furever home! In these pictures I rambled on a little too long and she fell asleep! Winnie gets along great with our grumble and is very smart and learned the doggie door right away. She is a very polite when given treats and is a slow eater. Someone's going to be very lucky to make her a permanent addition to their family!! Don't wait too long to inquire about Winnie you will miss out!!

Pending adoption - Congratulations Jenny

YodaPH ID: #4358
Yoda is a 13 year old male HW negative, already neutered.

From Yoda's foster: Mr. Yoda is a 13 year old fawn male. He lives up to his name. He will bring peace and tranquility to your household. We affectionately call him low-rider because of his short squatty legs and long body. He is an adorable Velcro dog that follows us everywhere. He loves to snuggle and has the cutest little growl. He plays with toys when prompted but really just wants to be around his human. He is totally housetrained. He is crate trained. He is a pug and loves his food, but does not like green beans. He prances when he walks and has the cutest face ever. Wouldn’t you just love to have this baby in your home? He is looking for his forever home and will reward you with his sweet kisses and undivided attention.

Update from Yoda's foster Feb 2017: Yoda is now 13 years young. Due to severe dry eye we had to take his eyes. He is a beautiful blind boy now and the only thing that's changed - he doesn't sleep on the bed anymore.

ZachPH ID: #5320
Zach is a young male from a shelter outside of Texas.

He comes to PugHearts with demodex mange.

Foster Zach is an absolute sweetheart. At only 5 months old he is 100% potty trained. He taught himself to use the dog door and takes himself out whenever he needs to use the potty or chew on a stick.

He has demodex which he is being treated for. Once he is ready he should definitely go to a home with dogs, he snuggles with mine all the time and loves to play tug of war. He is quiet (except for when he is letting you know it is definitely time to be up already, geez guys it's 7!!!) and his most favorite thing is laying on your lap. Don't get the wrong picture though - just like any puppy he does have bursts of energy during which he will try to bite all the dog cheeks he can find, lol.

Zach is pending adoption - Congratulations Jill and family!
