WELCOME TO PUGHEARTS OF HOUSTON PUG RESCUE
PugHearts of Houston Pug Rescue is a true 501(c)(3) non-profit charity founded in
the Houston area by dedicated pug owners and lovers. Our mission is the rescue,
rehabilitation and permanent placement of needy pugs into loving homes.
IMPORTANT FACEBOOK GROUP CHANGES
PugHearts of Houston
has maintained a Group page on Facebook
for the past several years. We encourage past adopters, potential adopters, fosters and all Pug lovers to join us! We love to post and share photos, heartwarming stories and advice on Pugs.
We have always required that potential FB PugHearts Group members submit a request to join our group in an effort to control SPAM and unauthorized posts. Group posts were visible to the public, but only approved group members could post comments or photos.
However, facebook has recently made some changes to their terms of service which made the PugHearts Group an “open” group, allowing anyone to post on our FB page. This resulted in some unfortunate posts which upset many people. It also allows for unauthorized use of images from our Group and opens our members to breaches of their privacy. We have now changed the status of our group back to “Closed
” which once again requires any new members to submit a request to join before they can post.
This change does not affect any existing facebook group members in any way.
However, with these new changes our FB Group
is now only visible to existing members. None of our posts or images are available to be viewed by anyone not a current member of our Group. This ensures the safety of our members as well as the protection of our content.
To become a member of our FB Group
, simply go to our FB Group
page and request to join. Our Administrators will take a quick peek at your profile to ensure you are a genuine pug-loving person (and not a SPAM bot) and with one click they will add you as a member. If your FB profile is brand new or you have a very blank profile, they may ask you for additional information to verify you are a genuine requestor. Once you are added you can post and read to your heart’s content. Just remember to play nice and refrain from abusive posts. We want to encourage and educate Pug lovers by making this a welcoming and nurturing environment.
So come on over to our FB Group
page and see what’s happening with your fellow Pug lovers!

PUG OF THE MOMENT
|Nick||PH ID: #675|
|Nick is an adorable fawn male. He is 9 years old and an owner surrender. He is heartworm negative. He has been neutered, microchipped and brought current on his vaccinations.|
From Nicky's foster: Nicky came to us severely underweight and with a history of eating foreign objects. After 6 weeks in foster care he has not tried to eat anything other than kibbles!! I think he was just hungry. He has had 3 seizures in the past and is now on twice-a-day medication for that.
He came to us housebroken. He was very shy around both humans and dogs, but is now starting to trust, and it's a joy to see. Nick was stressed and nervous about his change in situation, which caused him to break out in a massive hotspot on his back. That is clear now, and the fur is growing back where it was shaved. He has a little arthritis, and prefers not to jump up or down from the couch or bed but would rather be picked up. He has discovered snuggling on the couch is a WONDERFUL thing, and will also follow us around the house. The tail that was always down is now curling as it should be. He has even started to play!
This special boy needs a calm environment, lots of love, and a gentle touch; I'm sure he'll continue to come out of his shell and discover that the world is not just a mean, scary place! He deserves to have his life filled with all the love and care he was looking for.
