AllisterPH ID: #5598
Allister (6 years old) is as perfect as pugs come. He never has accidents, takes himself through a dog door even in the rain. He does not bark and he is the most chill pug I have ever seen. He never destroyed anything in my house and he was in fact enjoying the same privileges as my own dogs week 2 of his stay with us because he adjusted so well. He is super velcro though and will get up and follow his person everywhere. If he's outside he has no interest in running off, he just wants to be with his people.

Unfortunately, Allister does have very narrow nasal turbinates which means his nose is more or less non-functional and basically just blows bubbles all the time. He sleeps with a toy in his mouth to keep his airways open which is super smart and precious at the same time. We do not know how this will affect him long term because this condition is very rare. Since no surgery is currently an option for him and might not be for years depending on how the procedure evolves, he can be adopted out as special needs to a family that has a good understanding of dogs with medical needs. He is on no medications currently and has shown no decline in the 6 months we have had him but we cannot predict the future for him.

I would ask you to consider this treasure of a dog despite his medical condition. If I had any more room in my household, he would be the one I'd keep. He is the sweetest, funniest most loyal little dog and deserves the best.

AllyPH ID: #5843
Good Morning from Ally!!! She wants to tell everyone thank you for all your thoughts and good words. She enjoyed sleeping in a warm bed last night. This morning she had a good breakfast, and took some medicine to help with her itching, as well as antibiotics to help with the scabs she caused from biting and scratching. I still can’t stand how uncomfortable she is, but hopefully as the day goes on, she will start feeling better.

What I can tell so far...

1. Ally has been in this condition for quite sometime

2. She needs to be spayed, and has definitely had a few litters already

3. She has the hearty pug appetite.

4. Her eyes still look good

5. I would guess her age is 5-6

6. She has the cutest little bark/howl, and is not happy being quarantined from the others.

AmosPH ID: #5682
Amos is an older Pug mix (Pug/Peke ?). He comes to us from a local animal shelter. Amos is a 9 year old Pug/Peke mix that is super cute. He’s slightly vision impaired but he can see (has dry eye), just don’t expect him to read you the newspaper every morning J He’s a very sweet boy but it’s obvious he was never treated like a loved pet. He likes to be pet but he’s not comfortable at all if I pick him up to be on the couch with me, he jumps down at his first opportunity. That being said, he has made great strides in adapting. He will actually come up to me to be pet now, and over the weekend I took a video of him playing with a toy for the first time. He just needs someone to love him.

Amos has some funky back legs but he runs around and does just fine and he’s heartworm negative, YAH!!! He will go in for his neuter and to have his teeth cleaned and be ready to find his forever home by the end of September. I wholeheartedly recommend that you put this guy on your must see list.

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.

BanditPH ID: #5829

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.

BeePH ID: #5617
Bee comes to PugHearts with her sister Bumble. This cute pair is what everyone is buzzing about.....Are they meant for your beehive?

They are being adopted separately.

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!

BennyPH ID: #5828
Full Description Coming Soon!

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!

BinkyPH ID: #5735
Binky is an older girl at 12. Her human passed away and she just needs somewhere with a nice soft bed to hang out for her Golden Years. She is extremely well behaved. She is learning that it’s ok to get on my furniture so I assume that was a no no in her previous life. Well, welcome to my house girl! She is deaf, but she doesn’t miss a beat of what happens around her, unless of course she is asleep. She has a touch of arthritis, but with medication that isn’t an issue. Binky just wants to be loved and taken care of. I always feel so bad for these guys that lose their human and then have to go to a strange place with strange people. Won’t you please consider this sweet old lady, she really needs a family of her own again.

BrandoPH ID: #5824
Full Description Coming Soon!

BrandyPH ID: #5816
Foster Brandy has arrived! She’s fighting a nasty case of demodex, but she’ll be back to her beautiful self in no time. She is a one year old, heartworm negative, bundle of pure love; and is just happy to be snuggled. She did well in her crate last night, and potties outside like a good girl.

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!

Buddy 7PH ID: #5792
Buddy is a 1 year old male looking for a forever home. He is heartworm negative and scheduled to be neutered.

Buddy is an 18 month old male Fawn pug. He is very intelligent. He learned how to use the doggie door the first night we had him. He's a Velcro pug; loves to follow you around and is a little bit nosey. He is full of life and does well with children. He loves playing tug of war and fetch. Well he loves for you to throw the ball and he runs to it and let you know where it landed. He does well in the crate but loves if he could sleep at the foot of the bed. He is not a picky nor aggressive eater.

BuffyPH ID: #5740
Buffy is a 10 year old pug that has discovered the Fountain of Youth. I was fully expecting her to be aged at around 5. She is super sweet and pretty tiny at 14 pounds. She is becoming more comfortable with me but it has taken her a little while, when she first arrived she shook most of the time. Buffy was an owner surrender who came in with a skin and ear infection, but she was heartworm negative and spayed. So with medicated baths a few times a week and ear meds she is ready to find her new family.

She has a tendency to whine when she gets excited but I have yet to hear her bark. She seems to be house trained and does well in a crate while I’m at work, but she seems to prefer to sleep in the bed with me at night versus the crate. She has offered to play with me a few times but so far she just ignores the other fosters. Buffy is a super sweet girl that didn’t have a very good home pre-PugHearts but from here on out she will be very pleased with how she’s treated.

BumperPH ID: #5791
Bumper is an 8 year old male from a Texas shelter. He is vision impaired, but not blind. Bumper is heartworm negative, super adorable and already neutered. Bumper is a sweet 8 year old male who came to us from a Texas Animal Shelter. He was a little nervous when he first arrived, but he is quickly learning how to relax and enjoy the good life. He doesn't seem to have ever seen a bone or toy before, but he is starting to understand they are a lot of fun. He gets along well with other dogs and humans, including his 3 year old human foster brother. He has some vision loss due to dry eye, but sees enough to get around easily and only needs eye drops twice a day to manage it. He is mostly house trained and getting better every day since his neuter surgery at the end of November. As he comes out of his shell, he is becoming quite the love bug and can't wait to find his furever home!

ButtermilkPH ID: #5024
Reintroducing Foster Buttermilk. Now I hate the name but love this girl. The whole name theme has come back to haunt us, I can't even call her by her initials ?? She was born into our rescue two years ago. By no fault of her own she found her way back to us. She loves to play fetch and drop (she actually drops the ball for you to throw again), sits on command and runs to her crate when feeding time rolls around. She is a huge cuddler and has taken over the bed. She is crate and house trained, loves her long walk in the evenings and loves the freedom of the backyard. This sweet girl is ready for her furever home *right now*. I call her Luna Lou.

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!

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.

Caitlyn came to us in the summertime from Oklahoma. She is about 4 yrs old, heartworm negative, up-to-date on her vaccinations and spayed. This sweet dog has seen some physical and emotional abuse in her short life. She had broken bones in the past, severe dry eye and now has limited vision and has developed arthritis.

Caitlyn came to us as her 2nd foster home to give her a setting with less challenging personalities to deal with on her journey to healing. She has come so far since her arrival. She has learned the dog door and completed her potty training. I learned she is quite a smart dog. She has learned to play with some interactive devices which is fun. Even though she is sight impaired, she quickly learned the layout of our home and backyard, as well as the neighborhood on our walks. She grows in confidence every day. Neighbors who meet her on walks can now pet her without her cowering. Her arthritis has improved so much through a healthy diet,regular walks and a good glucosamine supplement that she no longer takes prescription medication. We are so happy for her.

CandyPH ID: #5827
Foster Candy is looking for her golden ticket home! This 18 month old heartworm negative female is just waiting on her spay and then she is ready to bring her sweetness to her forever home. Candy takes a minute to warm up, but she will melt your heart with her cuddles. She is doing good with potty training, but does not like to be in a kennel for long periods of time. Her favorite place is in your lap, but is very playful with other pugs in the house! Come meet this little peanut butter cup before she's all gone.

CarolPH ID: #5787
Full Description Coming Soon!

ChanningPH ID: #5771
Say hello to Channing Tatum in pug form! He is a smart energetic goofy 1 year old puppy who loves to play and dance around and can jump (high & can perch like a mountain goat). He knows how to use a doggy door and will sit and wait for his food. He is on the smaller end and super cuddly - he will lay right on top of you just to be as close as possible. At night, he will curl up with you in bed. If you are interested, please apply to adopt this sweet boy.

ChuckPH ID: #5712
Welcome beautiful Chuck to his new life. This boy was to be EUTHANIZED today. Fortunately, we got called and he is now safe. Thank you so much the amazing vet staff who saved his life!

Chuck is 12 but looks and acts more like 7-8. He’s vision impaired but not completely blind, he’s super velcro, runs around like a youngster, loves other dogs and plays with toys. He has so much life left to live and we will make sure he has a blast

CocoPH ID: #5560
CoCo is a pretty little black female.

This is Coco she is 7 years young but acts like a 3 year old. She will need to be fattened up a bit, spayed and go through heart worm treatment before she is ready for her forever home. She is very smart, I had her in the laundry room with a child gate up, she couldn’t jump over it so she turned over the laundry basket climbed on top and jumped over the gate. I think I am in trouble. ??

DexterPH ID: #5833
Meet Dexter, a 4 year old male. Dexter has all the the best parts of a pug - curly tail, folded ears and adorable eyes. He also has all the best part of a Boston terrier - slick soft coat and minimal shedding. He has a beautiful black coat with pretty brown undertones and some white fur on his chest.

Dexter definitely thinks he’ll full pug. He has a great temperament that is friendly, playful, and lovable. He is great with other dogs and loves to snuggle.

He is heartworm positive so he won’t be ready for adoption till May.

DibsPH ID: #5390
Dibs is an adult male from the Rio Grande Valley.

We are betting everyone will want dibs on Dibs

Dibs (aka Dibber Dawg) was a stray senior from the Valley 8 (8 pugs in one trip). He is up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, and neutered. He was being treated for Bladder Crystals, but with regular use of Urinary SO food, he has not had repeat episodes.

Dibber Dawg is 11, but you would not guess it in a million years. He enjoys talking back, walks with a friend, snuggles, belly rubs, and crazy antics playing ball (even by himself, he throws it and chases it).

He talks “hard smack” to the other dogs, which can incite arguments. He is toy, ball, and food aggressive, so my recommendation is for him to go to a home looking to have a sole pet. He loves his people for companionship, not other animals, so the trade-off is perfect.

Dibs will keep you company in the chair, on the couch, in the bed (amazingly still), or in the car so you will never be lonely.

He calls Dibs on some one on one love, so do you want Dibs on Dibs?

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.

Doc will make a great addition to any family.

Dylan 3PH ID: #5754
This is Dylan, and he’s as handsome as they come! Dylan comes to PugHearts as an owner surrender due to changes in his family. He is only 7 years old, heartworm negative, neutered and just as sweet as you can imagine. He knows the sit and lay down commands, and will even go nicely into his crate when asked.

Dylan is great with children and other dogs, he is one of the most gentlest Pugs I’ve ever met. And, he’ll even talk back when you talk to him... he might even sing! If you are looking for a stunning male Pug to add to your family, Dylan may be just who you’re looking for!

GingerPH ID: #5817
My name is Ginger and my middle name seems to be Velcro. When foster Mama moves an inch; so do I! I just can’t get enough of cuddling. I am as sweet as can be and completely house broken. I am happiest when I am snuggling but I love to play too! I like cats and other dogs. Life is pretty grand now that I found my way to Pug Hearts. All I need now is a family of my own!

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.

GracePH ID: #5679
Grace is a very ill female from a local shelter. She was picked up and taken straight to the ER vet. She is anemic and received a blood transfusion and full lab work. Please send Grace positive thoughts and good wishes, as she has a long road ahead of her.

GraysonPH ID: #5774
Full Description Coming Soon!

GretchenPH ID: #5691
Gretchen is an 8-year old french bulldog pug mix that came to us in a good health but bad spirits. When we initially got her we were convinced she needs to be an only dog because she was not getting along with anybody and was visibly uncomfortable when any dog got near her. She is very much a work in progress still but she has warmed up to all the dogs in her foster home and she even seems to love one other foster.

She is very food possessive so she cannot be given any long lasting chews around other dogs and she needs to be fed separately. She does not like being picked up but she will happily jump into your lap herself. She is fully potty trained and will go outside even in the rain. She knows how to sit and lay down and she is very attentive. When properly directed she is a very polite dog. She is amazing on a leash and loves going for walks. She has no issues meeting dogs outside.

To point out the obvious, she is stunningly gorgeous, has the best ears and a really soft coat. She will need a special home with a lot of patience so we would not recommend her with young children. If she is to be in a household with other dogs she would need a strong leader and we would evaluate the situation on a case by case basis.

Let me just say that I would have never expected so much progress out of her in the short 2 months that we have had her. I am excited to see what more she can accomplish!

GuyPH ID: #5831
~~Little Guy seeks Big Love~~

PugHearts Guy is looking for that special someone or someones he can call his very own. He is about 18 months old. With his foster family, Guy is learning about toys, how to play, that it’s good to receive love, cuddles and kisses, and potty training. Guy will need patience and unconditional love while he learns how to be a pampered pug!!! Guy is recovering from an upper respiratory infection and should be ready to adopt right before Valentine’s Day. We will keep you posted on his progress!

HankPH ID: #5784
Hank is one half of a sweet 2 year old bonded pair. His brother’s name is Johnny. He is the more dominant brother of the two. He loves to play with his brother and cries when he is unable to be with his brother. He loves children, especially rough and tumble little boys. He gets along with other dogs very well. He loves to eat and looks forward to all meals. He is also loves to snuggle with his foster mom. He loves to play ball and uses his paws to keep possession of his ball. He is heartworm negative and there are no other health problems noted at this time. He will be available after his neuter in mid-December.

Hank and Johnny were welcomed into our home as bonded two-year-old boys. Both boys are heartworm negative. Their foster mom refers to them as her Thanksgiving Blessing. The literally are the givers of joy and happiness. Their foster mom also refers to them as a double blessing, a layer cake, double trouble (in a good way) and double snuggles. Both boys are very dedicated to each other and love being together every moment of the day. They both have cork screw tails that they somehow manage to wag in unison. Johnny is always the first one to lay down and go to sleep and then Hank joins him by resting his head on Hank’s head. Both boys have been caught watching television when their foster dad was watching wrestling. They answer to their names, come when they are called and put themselves to bed in the kennel at night where they sleep until the early morning hours. Once they are let outside and fed their breakfast both boys prefer to curl up with their foster mom for an extra hour of sleep. Although they love being together, they insist on traveling with their foster mom as she moves from room to room. They both love children and would love a home that is a little rough and tumble, but they also love the peace and quiet of an owner that reads, quilts or bakes. They both get along with other dogs.

JacksonPH ID: #5709
Jackson comes to PugHearts from a local vet clinic. He is heartworm positive and will have to go through heartworm treatment prior to adoption.

Hello potential forever peeps. I am Jackson. I am a 3 year old neutered male and I weigh 23 pounds. But that's not the best part. I love to snuggle and give great kisses. I am a perfect gentleman with my senior foster brother and have no problem allowing him to be the boss of the household. I like to ride in the car, although I mostly sleep and I am great on the leash either by myself or with other dogs.

In my spare time, I like to cuddle up next to my foster mom or sleep in my doggy bed. Oh, did I mention I like to play? Yes my toys are some of my favorite things to share with my foster brother. I also like to woo foster mom into giving me belly rubs ( she can't resist when I roll over on my back ). I pretty good in the house and go to the door when I need to go outside.

In closing, let me say, I am a sweet boy who would love a home with other dogs or even a boy or girl who could love on me. I have so much to offer and I know we will have many long years of snuggles and smiles together.

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!

JohnnyPH ID: #5785
Johnny is one half of a sweet 2 year old bonded pair. His brother’s name is Hank. He is the less dominant brother of the two. He loves to play with his brother and cries when he is unable to be with his brother. He loves children, especially rough and tumble little boys. He gets along with other dogs very well. He loves to eat and looks forward to all meals. He is also loves to snuggle with his foster mom. He is heartworm negative and there are no other health problems noted at this time. He will be available after his neuter in mid-December.

Hank and Johnny were welcomed into our home as bonded two-year-old boys. Both boys are heartworm negative. Their foster mom refers to them as her Thanksgiving Blessing. The literally are the givers of joy and happiness. Their foster mom also refers to them as a double blessing, a layer cake, double trouble (in a good way) and double snuggles. Both boys are very dedicated to each other and love being together every moment of the day. They both have cork screw tails that they somehow manage to wag in unison. Johnny is always the first one to lay down and go to sleep and then Hank joins him by resting his head on Hank’s head. Both boys have been caught watching television when their foster dad was watching wrestling. They answer to their names, come when they are called and put themselves to bed in the kennel at night where they sleep until the early morning hours. Once they are let outside and fed their breakfast both boys prefer to curl up with their foster mom for an extra hour of sleep. Although they love being together, they insist on traveling with their foster mom as she moves from room to room. They both love children and would love a home that is a little rough and tumble, but they also love the peace and quiet of an owner that reads, quilts or bakes. They both get along with other dogs.

Lady BugPH ID: #5813
Mature woman, 13 years old, who believes age is just a number seeks a life partner who will allow me to be me. I was in a long term relationship, but through no fault of my own, they decided we had reached the end of our road together. Now I find myself having to start over, but I am an optimistic gal and know my forever is out there. Side notes: I haven't had any "work" done, but look much younger than most at my age. I credit a good diet, plenty of rest, and speaking my mind (I can be vocal at times) for my spunky energy level. I appreciate good meals, good company, and soft places to sleep. I would do well with other dogs or as an only. And because I'm a proper southern lady, I do my business where one does their business...outside!

LilianaPH ID: #5802
Meet new intake Liliana. A black female, 1.5 years old; yet another sad case from the Rio Grande Valley.

What I know:

Severely neglected, over-bred, already spayed, and beat intestinal parasites and double ear infections. She is miraculously heart worm negative, but will still be evaluated by our vets over the next days, as holidays permit.

What I've observed:

She's the clingiest, neediest, teeniest (9 pounds only ????) pug I've ever fostered. She's active in the yard, but will cuddle on my chest and go right to sleep. She's a picky eater, is learning what toys are (and a stealer of toys), and likes the other pugs. We're working on house training, tho no accidents so far. She cries in the crate at first, but is gradually getting that it's her safe place (pink palace complete with Christmas garland).

Keep watch for Facebook updates on this itty bitty Christmas miracle!!!

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.

Sterling is a senior gentleman left at a local shelter. He is estimated to be 14 years old, has a severe ear infection and other neurological problems we are starting to address.

Sterling is a 14 year old pug that was at the shelter when we picked him up. He is blind, toothless and deaf to anything other than super high pitched sounds. He’s a good guy that just wants to live out his life in peace and comfort. He wanders around the house and periodically takes a nap on rugs, dog bed, sorted laundry, anything that is soft. He seems to be a happy guy with the exception of growling at invisible dogs while guarding something. It’s so very funny to watch him just stand there and growl when he’s the only one there, but he wants to make sure everyone knows it’s his.

The chances that anyone will ever open their home to Sterling are not great, but if you have it in your heart to give this guy a place to live out his golden years you will never be sorry. Just give it some thought, it’s not difficult to take care of a senior and it is very rewarding.

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.

ThorPH ID: #5588
Prayers needed for a sweet old man who is on his way to Houston from Mexico.

Thor is in bad shape and he needs all the prayers he can get.

He has tested positive for Erlichia, a tick borne disease, and is now receiving treatment for it. He has had a blood transfusion and IV Fluids to help him feel better. TREATMENT COMPLETED

Thor came thundering into our lives in June. He was found on the streets of Mexico and he was very ill. This little man was not given much hope to survive. But was delivered to Houston and once again our vets have been miracle workers and Thor is doing well. Thor eats everything he can and has put on a few lbs., he takes his meds, supervises the grumble, howls when he is happy to see you and is potty trained.

Thor is 10yrs old, heartworm - (thank goodness) and is not ready for adoption yet - but keep an eye on this sweetheart - He is amazing!!

TiggerPH ID: #5781
Tigger is a 1 year old 15 pound ball of energy. He is a Brindle with near black face. He came to PugHearts with dry skin and, sadly, heartworm positive. He will get his big boy surgery in a couple of weeks. We’re clearing up his skin now and hope to have him ready mid to late February after heart worm treatment. We are working on leash training and in the process of potty training.

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.

TitanPH ID: #5814
Hey ya'll, I'm Titan! Elvis may have left the building but I'm a 3-4 year old hunka hunka burning love that will never leave your side! I arrived at PugHearts terrified of all the change in my life but I've settled in quickly with my foster family and my loving personality has emerged in full force. I love hanging out on the sofa and watching sports while cuddled up next to you. Need a date for the SuperBowl? I'm your guy! I also love being with my foster brother and sisters and get along well with them. I'm learning what toys are and these really awesome things called "treats". I could stand to lose a few post-holiday pounds so will be working on that between naps.

I go back to the v-e-t in a couple weeks for a nose job to help me breathe better but I don't think I could be any more handsome than I already am. I'm otherwise very healthy - no medications and heartworm negative! I sleep well in a crate but would adore sleeping in the big bed with you. I'll be available to give you forever cuddles by Mid-January so get your applications in and some chips and guacamole ready! (Chips and guac for you - all I need is your lap!). Love, Titan.

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: #5730
Toby is a young, 18 month old, chug (Chihuahua/Pug mix) that comes to us wanting to find a place to be young and carefree.

Toby is a 1 year old 12 lb. pug mix who is active and playful. He is learning about boundaries and how to feel relaxed and secure. He has learned how to sit, cuddle, and play appropriately with others. Crates well, and will need a neuter to fully curb his marking, but he wears a belly band with no issues.

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.

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

WalkerPH ID: #5815
Walker is an 8 month old sweet energetic puppy who is in the process of learning house manners. Walker is great with kids and other dogs and hasn’t met a toy he doesn’t love! This boy is pending adoption and will go to his forever family Christmas Day!

WatsonPH ID: #5772
Watson comes to PugHearts from Laredo, TX.

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 6 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 6 yrs 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!


Wilson update -After a tough time with heartworm treatment, he is now doing very well. He is healthy, loves his humans, his dogs, and also loves children. He will climb in any lap that will hold him. Please consider this sweet, very chill Man Dog! We love Wilson and he deserves his own family, he has waited a long time!!

ZachPH ID: #5667
Zach is a 2-year-old fawn male Chug. He is neutered, heartworm negative and up to date on all his shots. He had to have one eye removed due to trauma and he will also have a hernia repaired in the very near future. Zach is house trained, crate trained and happy and healthy. He likes to play and would like a home of his own where he can collect his toys, hang out in his bed and play tug of war with other dog buddies. He would be OK as an only dog too, as long as someone will play with him! Please give this little guy a chance!

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.
