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
Foster Allen is a one year old bundle of love! He has lots of puppy energy and loves to play. He is good with other animals (big dogs, small dogs and cats) and he adores children. He crates well, loves toys and gives very sweet kisses. He is learning to walk on a leash and has already learned to sit for food and to go potty outside. He requests a family who will play with him but also give him lots of belly rubs! Allen will go through heartworm treatment before he is ready for adoption, but he will be dreaming of his forever family in the meantime! If you are looking for a young, active dog who would be great with kids, Allen is your guy!

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.

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.

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.

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!

BilboPH ID: #5409
Bilbo comes to PugHearts with his friend Frodo.

These two sweet guys are both heartworm negative and already neutered.

He is bonded to Frodo and they will only be adopted out together.

BonesPH ID: #5357
Bones is an 8 year old male.

He has some serious weight loss issues and we are working through those with the vet.

Bones is heartworm negative.

BonniePH ID: #3310
Bonnie is a 7 year old fawn female who is already spayed, heart worm negative and ready to go to her Furever home. She came to PugHearts with her soul mate, Clyde, as owner surrender through no fault of theirs.

She is a small little pug girl, but she is the boss of the two. She has a good appetite, goes potty outside and is crate trained. She loves to play with toys. She likes to snuggle in bed and have her belly rubbed. When she gets tired of playing, she finds Clyde and curls up with him in one of their matching kennels. She is very sweet, good with children and would make a perfect addition, with Clyde of course, to any deserving family. You get a discount on the adoption donation for adopting this perfect couple.

Clyde and Bonnie are back with PugHearts after their Dad passed away and Mom cannot care for them on her own.

BooPH ID: #5356
Boo is a 3 year old fawn male. He is sadly, heartworm positive and will have to go through heartworm treatment prior to adoption.

BoogeyPH ID: #5358
Boogey is a 3 year old fawn male.

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

My name is Boogie and my Foster Mommy likes to call me Boogie Wonderland! I am a 3 year old male who loves to cuddle next to you. My Foster Mommy is teaching me how to sit and being crate trained although I love sleeping in the bed under the covers with you. I love my toys and Kong balls and can easily entertain myself. I live with my older Pug sisters and brother and get along great with my siblings. I am Heartworm positive and need to be treated before finding my furever home. If you are looking for a lovable little guy I am the one for you!

BronxPH ID: #5383
Bronx is a brindle Bugg (Boston Terrier and Pug mix) that comes to PugHearts from a shelter in Louisiana.

He will be seen by the vet and we will update soon. Aren't his ears AWESOME!

My name is Bronx. I am a Bugg (Boston terrier/ pug mix). My foster mom says I am her love Bugg, my foster Dad calls me the bed Bugg cause I love to cuddle on his pillow at night. I’m only 18 months old and have heart worms , but it doesn’t slow me down. I love to play with my foster sisters. I’m not used to being inside so sometimes I jump at noises and don’t understand why I have to go outside to potty. But I’m learning. It only took me an afternoon to figure out the doggie door. I love people and other dogs. All I really want to do is cuddle and follow you around all day. Once I get my heartworm treatment I will be good to go!

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!

Buster #5PH 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!!

Buster #6PH ID: #5418
Buster is a 12 year old blind male.

Sadly, his owner and best friend passed away and he was left with no one to care for him.

Thankfully, the police officer reached out to PugHearts and we went to his house and picked him up so that he did not have to spend one minute in a shelter.

He is being seen by our fantastic vets and we will update on his health soon.

He is very confused, but grateful to be warm, full and safe.

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. We are making great strides on her trust issues and she has discovered that body and tummy rubs are a good thing. We are also working on house training, but it's hard to house train when a dog doesn't trust just yet.

This baby is a work in progress and should go to a home that can continue her training and love her just for who she is. Some of her positive aspects: she knows the "crate" command at feeding time; loves toys; snuggles with another female foster in my house.

This baby deserves the very best life has to offer and she's learning that it's out there for her.

CashPH ID: #5363
Cash is a talker! He is trying to tell us about all his adventures before arriving with PugHearts.

This sweet older man has been through a LOT. He is severe heartworm positive, has a bad back, dry eye and shotgun pellets in his back leg.

Cash is a gentle soul. He is 8 years old and now enjoying the good life. He is heartworm positive and will go though treatment in early 2018. He came to Pug Hearts from a local shelter. It was noted that he has been shot at because pellets showed up on his x-rays. He was also diagnosed with Spondylosis but this hasn't slowed him down one bit. He can go up and down stairs and for nice long walks. He has daily meds for this on days he seems to be in pain but that is rare although he does seem to get stiff in colder weather. Cash is so sweet. He loves kids and all dogs including the family cat. He is the essential lap pug who loves to have his head rubbed. He comes house trained and crate trained as well. Please consider this handsome guy to add to your grumble.

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!

ClydePH ID: #3311
Clyde is a 7 year old fawn male who is already neutered, heart worm negative and ready to go to his Furever home. He came to PugHearts with his soul mate, Bonnie, as owner surrender through no fault of theirs. He is a handsome fellow who lost an eye in a mysterious manner. He has a good appetite, goes potty outside and is crate trained. He likes to snuggle in bed and have his back scratched. He and Bonnie have matching kennels and he goes to lie down and watch Bonnie play from the comfort of his bed. He is a very sweet, calm boy, is good with children and would make a perfect addition, with Bonnie of course, to any deserving family. You get a discount on the adoption donation for adopting this perfect couple.

Clyde and Bonnie are back with PugHearts after their Dad passed away and Mom cannot care for them on her own.

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!

DakotaPH ID: #5410
Dakota is a 5 year old female.

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

Before PugHearts came to her rescue, she was chained to the railing of a balcony of an apartment unit exposed to cold and hot weather. She was not treated like the true princess she is.

Sadly, she has several medical issues: stenotic nares, hookworms, and strong heartworm positive. She still needs to undergo treatment for her heartworm next year before she can be available for adoption.

Dakota is a zippy, happy, active, crazy pug who brings life in our home and hearts. She is potty trained, but we are still working on crate training.

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.

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!

DiamondPH ID: #5374
Diamond is a 6 yr old fawn female. She comes to PugHearts well loved and cared for. Her owner passed away and trusted PugHearts to care for Diamond and her sister Pearl.

They are a bonded pair and will only be adopted together.

Diamond is heartworm negative and already spayed.

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

We are betting everyone will want dibs on Dibs

Dibs is a stray senior who among the Valley 8 (yes, 8 pugs in one trip ??) arrived the wee hours of a Friday night & vetted shortly after. Remarkably, he is heartworm negative!!

We are treating minor ear/skin issues. He is 11; but don't let that number dissuade you; he has the vitality of two 5 1/2 year olds.

He's got perfect leash manners & ADORES his walks. He is friendly with EVERYONE. We are correcting marking; neuter scheduled soon, which I expect will help considerably. He is a medium 17 pound guy & most uniquely colored fawn with a lot of dark throughout, & a hint of brindle.

He's a vocal, waggy, snuggly extrovert whose bigger-than-Houston personality continues to emerge. He has entrusted us (we shook on it) to find him the perfect home.

If interested, just reach out to PugHearts with one word: 'Dibs' ??. Before someone else calls, well, dibs ??????.

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.

DonnerPH ID: #5420
Donner is a pug mix from the Rio Grande Valley. He will be seen by the vet and we will update soon.

EbonyPH ID: #5417
Ebony is a 3 year old spayed female.

She is heartworm negative and needs a bit of a diet. She is being treated for a mild skin infection and will be back to her stunning glory in now time.

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!

EggrollPH ID: #5359
Eggroll is a 7 year old fawn male.

He is neutered and heartworm negative!

Hey there, PH foster Eggroll here. I had a real nice Thanksgiving and hope you did as well. I have had dental work done and feel and look great. I am ready to find my furever home. I love laying on you, sleeping with you, going on walks, and just being easy going and laid back.

EthanPH ID: #5391
Ethan is a 1 yr old fawn male. He was found wandering all alone and despite his rescuers looking for his family for over a month, they were never found. He is from the Rio Grande Valley.

Ethan is a sweet 1 year old baby boy. He's heartworm negative and weighs 15 lbs.

We are working on potty training and he is using the doggy door. He loves toys and cuddling and chasing squirrels

He is very active and playful and will have his neuter and boosters on December 15 so he will ready for his furever home before Christmas

He is a handsome young little man who would be great addition to any family

Ethan is pending adoption!

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)

FranzPH ID: #5395
Franz is a little Bugg mix that comes to PugHearts with a severe eye injury.

He is at the vet and we will update once we know more.

Franz is joined by his brother Hans and they are a bonded pair.

FrodoPH ID: #5408
Frodo is a 6 year old pug mix. He comes to PugHearts with his friend Bilbo.

These boys are super sweet, already neutered and heartworm negative.

GobblePH ID: #5407
Gobble is barely 12 pounds of tiny, turkey day heaven, topped with Cinnabon tail perfection. He is the complete package. He is dinner & dessert ??.

This ADORABLE, petite fawn boy came to PugHearts on Thanksgiving Day (So. Gobble.) as an 18 month old owner surrender. He needs to be neutered & sadly, treated for heart worms. He definitely still has puppy in him. We are working on house training, as he does want to mark, which should resolve with neuter & consistent direction. He has already gotten used to walking in a harness; loves his strolls. He's a hand shy, timid guy who is learning to trust in his now safe environment. He engages my other pugs & today discovered belly rubs = ecstasy. Next stop: toy box. Beyond? Sky's the limit; help this turkey fly.

As is the way with fostering, warms my heart helping him become the pug he should have always been.

Gobble will be adoption ready ETA February/March.

If you find Gobble to your appetite, let Erika Landers know...

Turkey race ON!!!

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.

He enjoys human company tremendously and, while comfortable being around other dogs and cats, it is clear that he prefers humans. Gus is house trained and truly prefers being an attached companion. He's a terrific snoozer, complete with gentle snoring. He's a low maintenance pug. Gus is the perfect companion for a quiet lifestyle of siestas, meals, and occasional outings.

HansPH ID: #5396

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.

HeidiPH ID: #5400
Heidi is a sweet female from a local shelter.

Princess Heidi is a 15lb love nugget. She’s about 6, spayed, heartworm negative, house trained (not a single accident) crate trained, and a lap warmer worth her weight in BTUs. She has dry eye and some vision impairment, but within a day, she was prancing around the house and yard like she owned the place. She will be re-evaluated by Gulf Coast Animal Eye Clinic in December. She takes her daily eye drops with ease . . . for a small bribe of a teeny tiny bite of turkey or chicken. She came to us knowing how to sit and is steadily increasing her vocabulary including her name, come on, outside, eye drops, and Good Potty (I’m sure the neighbors love that one.) She is growing interested in toys but prefers to give her bed a good shake regularly for now. She’s an active participant in the daily wrestle and chase games in the household and gets along great with everyone. Fair warning: if you touch her front legs trying to pick her up, she will launch herself into your arms fully expecting to be caught and loved. Are you ready to be Princess Heidi’s loyal subject?

He is toddler and other dogs friendly. He is very smart and get things very quickly. He knows sit and come, also learned to come by the sound of a bell when he's outside. He is not food aggressive and so far is very patient with pretty much everything we do, including great car rider. While he loves to sleep on the couch, he enjoys going outside and play with his foster siblings, and the sun on good weather days. He does spins every time we ask him if he wants to go outside, super cute! He gets excited when you put his harness too. He barely sheds. (All medical records are at SLPH.) He is protein intolerant so he eats fish protein kibble, currently eating TOTW Salmon and Sweet Potatoes.

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

Joey is crate trained and learning about house training. He currently sleeps in a kennel but loves to be around people when he has the chance. He can be a bit of a billy goat, but is learning that hopping up onto the table is not acceptable.

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.

She does need to learn to stop jumping on you, so if you have small children that might frighten them.

Adoption pending

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.

La LaPH ID: #5201
La La is a happy 5 yr old pug mix from a local shelter.

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

From LaLa's foster: La La has completed her heartworm treatment and she's really excited to find out who will be her new family. I've been fostering for PugHearts for over 10 years and I've had some great fosters and La La is right at the top of my list. This girl is completely potty trained, doesn't bark, goes in her crate by herself for bed, super loving, loves to give kisses and cuddle.....I could just go on for pages about how amazing she is. She will fit into any family because she's so well adjusted. I think she would love kids but she seems to be happy with just me too. She is ALWAYS happy. If you're looking for the perfect girl make sure La La is at the top of your list.

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.

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!!

LeiaPH ID: #5188
Leia is a fawn female. S

Leia is a very sweet girl with a happy disposition. She is your typical pug, she likes attention and will follow you to get it. Once you sit, she wants to be in your lap. She's a little chunky right now and is on a diet.

Update: Leia has gone through her HW treatment and did well. She has been in our home for several months now. She remains a Velcro pug, loves to sleep in the bed with her people and is house trained. I have a puppy in the house and Leia mothers her and is so patient with the biting and playfulness. Over time we discovered some arthritis so she is on meds to help her. She really is the sweetest dog and would make someone a loving, faithful companion.

LeoPH ID: #5373
Leo is a precious boy that comes to PugHearts from a local shelter. He has had severe trauma to his eye and that will have to be removed.

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!!

LolitaPH ID: #4642
Lolita is a fawn female and an owner surrender.

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. I like to play tug - o-war, but can’t run after a ball because I’m a little over weight, and don’t see too well. I’m a wonderful lady and would love to join a forever home soon.

LouisePH ID: #5107
Louise is a 7 yr old heartworm negative female.

From Louise's foster: This is 7 year old Foster Louise. She is adorable, and she loves to cuddle. She is very shy, so she would be happier in a home without young children. She has a lot of love to give and would be an ideal companion!

LoviePH ID: #5372
Lovie is an older female that comes to PugHearts due to financial issues in her family.

While Lovie may be a tiny lady, she has an indomitable spirit that has helped her overcome several health challenges. She is now healthy and thriving, and looking forward to meeting her forever family. Lovie enjoys following her human around the house, cuddling, napping and eating. She gets along well with other dogs, but prefers to observe rather than be involved in the action.

Lovie is not able to climb up and down stairs on her own, so she will need help if you have a multi story home. She is on a wet food diet as she had the majority of her teeth removed and can’t chew dry food. She does quite well in her crate and is always ready to cuddle up in her bed and relax.

It is a pleasure having Lovie in our home. I know she will bring her forever family nothing but joy. She is a special little soul who is looking for a safe and loving home where she can enjoy her golden years.

LucillePH ID: #5306
Lucille is a senior lady that comes to PugHearts with her brother and friend Lawrence.

They are a bonded pair of seniors and will see our vet to be checked out completely.

From Lucille's foster: Lucille is an 8 year old silver fawn female, heartworm negative. She has been spaded and is ready for her forever home. Lucille is totally blind; however, she learns her way around very quickly. She loves to take walks and will run ahead of everyone else to lead the pack. How she knows where she is going is beyond me, but she does. She is a sweet, lovable little Velcro baby. She gets along well with other dogs and cats. She would work well in a home with older kids. Loud noises scare her so a quite home would be great. You will need to put drops in her eyes once a day for the rest of her life and she will need medicated baths once a week, she has no other medical issues. She has a brother named Lawrence, they are a bonded couple and will be adopted together.

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.

Maddox now responds to Frankie and is quite the happy boy. He is around 7 years old and a small 17 pound pug with enough energy to keep you entertained. He loves being close to his human but is not quite Velcro to the point where he whines if he doesn’t see you. He is good with other dogs but will hide behind your legs around kids… I think he isn’t used to seeing little humans.

He knows how to use a doggy door and will sleep inside his crate but only with the door open. 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!

He has great manners! He will sometimes cross his paws when he sleeps and will only jump on the couch when prompted.

Foster Maddox has gone through heartworm treatment and is ready for adoption!

MalloryPH ID: #5384
Mallory is a fawn female. She comes to PugHearts with severe skin issues. She is heartworm negative.

Foster Mallory is approximately 2 years old and came into foster care on 11/06/2017 after being found on the side of the road with two deceased dogs. She was not microchipped, had hook worms, itchy red skin and loss of hair. She has responded well to the medications she was prescribed, and her skin is looking much better and she is not near as itchy as she had been just a week ago. She is being bathed weekly with a special shampoo. She is a little sweetheart. She is loving and will follow me around the house and will let me know with just a look that she wants to be in my lap. She loves meal time! She is tiny and only weighs 13.5 lbs. at this time. She sleeps in a crate at night and does not cry or whine. I also crate her when I leave the house for a few hours. She hasn't started playing with my other dogs yet but I can tell she is on the verge of joining in with them. She is potty trained and will go on a pee pad if in the house. In a few weeks she will be spayed, have her nares done and receive her booster shots. She will be available for adoption sometime in mid to late December.

Mallory is pending adoption (with Kimberly) as soon as they are both spayed.

MarjoriePH ID: #4619
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!

MavisPH ID: #4999
Mavis is a sweet 7 year old girl who was found wandering around all alone. She was taken to a local shelter and they called us when no one came looking for her. She is heartworm negative. 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.

MeeshaPH ID: #5411

MinxPH ID: #4795
Meet Minx. PugHearts picked him up after he hid out in a strangers garage.

This boy is super sweet, did not even give the cat a 2nd look.. His color is that of Mink, hence the name Minx. we will know more about him after he is seen by the vet.

From Minx's foster: Minx is a approximately 8 year old boy pug mix. They think he might be part boxer. He weighs about 26 pounds. He is very easy crate and does well on a leash.

He is currently on a prescription diet for GI upset.

MortiPH ID: #5232

He is having a dental soon and hopefully be well enough? to be neutered as he is very frail with a few health issues

He has a way to go but he is a sweetheart.

Mrs. GibsonPH ID: #5404
Mrs. Gibson is a stunningly gorgeous 8 year old female. She is already spayed and HW-, we are just clearing up her yeast infection and tending to her eyes. She is the best little patient and cooperates wonderfully. She seems to have some limitation to her vision (she misses a step on the deck every now and then) but she can definitely see, she never runs into anything, finds toys and follows me around all the time.

She has the perfect amount of energy - she will walk (or more accurately prance, it's so cute) with you and follow you around the house, she even picked up toys from the toy basket but her favorite time is snoozing on the couch with you. She loves being held and she's such a sweet squishy teddy bear. She gets along super well with my little pack and she is a good eater. She eats dry food with no issues and when she is done no kibbles are left behind, however, she is a very gentle treat taker, I hope she can teach my boys some manners!

We have had this sweet angel in our house for only a couple of days but we are completely amazed. She prances around all happy and gives great snuggles. She is a real treasure, get your applications in soon!

Ms Gibson is pending adoption. Congratulations Michelle!

MurielPH ID: #5376
Muriel is a 4 year old female. This poor young lady comes to PugHearts suffering from sarcoptic mange. She is heartworm negative and will be spayed as soon as her skin has improved.

PH Murial has come a long way in a week. Initially she wanted to be left alone. I don’t think she understood the concept of being loved on. Well she has caught on and seems to be enjoying it. Love and cuddles has done wonders.

This 4 year old black beauty is part terrier and has her spay soon and will be looking for her forever home after that. She is recovering from a skin issue and will have a mass removed as well. When this is all clear she is going to be gorgeous. Ideally suited to being an only dog home. Loves cats.

NellyPH ID: #5336
Nelly is a 10-11 year old female. She comes to PugHearts due to changes in the family circumstances.

Sadly, Nelly has intestinal cancer and will be one of PugHearts hospice pugs until it is her time to cross the Rainbow Bridge.

Nelly is an incredibly low maintenance senior lady. She is perfectly content as long as I am near by and within her line of vision. She enjoys following me around the house to make sure I don’t get lonely, sitting on top of my feet while I’m cooking just in case food happens to fall to the floor and she sleeps at the side of my bed so she can keep an eye on me all night long. She gracefully tolerates our active two year old pug, and luckily does not share his enthusiasm for barking at any dogs that might happen by the House. The only time I’ve heard her bark has been when her dinner has been delayed.

Nelly stares lovingly at me with her big, brown eyes and my heart melts. Nothing makes her happier then snuggling up to my side and hunkering down for a restful nap. Caring for her during the final stage of her illness is my privilege and I couldn’t love her more even if we’d been lucky enough to be her family since she was a puppy.

NuggetPH ID: #3218
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!

OlafPH ID: #5419
Olaf is a 3 year old male that comes to PugHearts due to changes in his household.

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.

PaisleyPH ID: #5414
Paisley is a black female that comes to PugHearts looking for a place of her own.

Paisley is a three year old black female. She is a spunky little girl that loves to follow you around. She is nosey and wants to make sure she doesn’t miss a thing! She loves to cuddle and be pet. Paisley is smart, she knows how to use the doggy door and is house trained. She gets along with other dogs, both big and small, but she likes the be the alpha. She is neutered but not chipped. She is looking for the perfect family to love.

ParkerPH ID: #5370
Fifth born on Penny's puppies.


Parker NAP was the fifth born, and is twin to his sister Peppa. Their markings are very similar, but Peppa's face is darker and Parker has a larger white spot on the back of his neck and a large one on his chest. His paws are white, as is the tip of his tail, making it look like he tiptoed through white paint while dragging his tail. Parker too, looks like he was fathered by a ShihTzu and has a soft silky coat, just like the majority of his siblings. He is playful and so very adventurous, he was the first out of the liter to figure out how to climb the stairs! Parker and his siblings will be available for adoption sometime after the new year. They are still young and nursing off their mama, but are eating puppy food and getting stronger and more mischievous every day!

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.

PearlPH ID: #5375
Pearl is a 6 yr old black female. She comes to PugHearts loved and well cared for. Her owner passed away and trusted PugHearts to care for she and her sister Diamond.

Pearl is heartworm negative and already spayed. She is bonded to her sister Diamond and they will only be adopted together.

PennyPH ID: #5333
Meet Penny.

She is not really a pug...but we won't tell if you won't.

Penny NAP is a lot of dog in a little package! She is a very well behaved lady who wants to be loved by a family of her own. She is house broken but does have the occasional accident in which she will use a puppy pad if one is available. I think she would do great in a home with a doggy door. Penny loves to spend time out back, where she will lay on the patio or in the grass and bask in the warmth of the sun. Penny came to us just days before she delivered 6 beautiful and healthy puppies. Penny has been a great mother to her puppies, but is not very old herself and looking forward to a new life through PugHearts.

At our home, she gets along great with all the other dogs but doesn't seem to really like our 2 cats. There are days when she ignores them completely but one wrong look from either cat will set her off and she will tree them up on the counter top or in their cat tree and bark non-stop. She loves toys, and given the opportunity will try stealing all the toys and hide them for her personal use. One of her most endearing features is her underbite! I just love when her lower lip pulls back a little and you can see her underbite. She will be ready for adoption after her puppies are weaned and she is spayed. If you are interested in a companion that loves to snuggle, she is definitely worth the wait!

PercyPH ID: #5367
Second born on Penny's puppies.


Percy NAP was the second born, and came about 20 minutes after his big sister, Posey. Percy is the smallest out of the litter, and I am extremely protective of him due to his smaller size. He too looks to be fathered by a ShihTzu but his coloring is similar to his mother. At this time he has a soft silky coat, but it lays and feels different than his siblings. I have a feeling that the texture may take on a more wiry feel as he grows older. Percy is the most vocal of the litter, he is a playful little guy who likes to hide and jump out at anyone walking by. I have to be careful with him, as he has literally become my shadow so I constantly need to watch where I step when he is out of his playpen. While he is playful, he has a preference for laying around with the old folks, the older dogs in our house. He adores Foster Theodore, and loves to crawl in bed and nap with him, or mostly on him! Percy and his siblings will be available for adoption sometime after the new year. They are still young and nursing off their mama, but are eating puppy food and getting stronger and more mischievous every day!

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!

RayPH ID: #5385
Greetings, my name is Ray and my bonded mate is Bambi, we come as a pair. We lost our loving home when our owner suddenly passed away. Because we are different breeds, me being a French Bulldog and Bambi being a Pug/Brussels Griffon 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 handsome older gentleman who has a heart of gold and gets along with all the dogs in my foster home, young and old, my size all the way down to a tiny 2.4 lb dog. I am house trained and I do best with a regular potty schedule. I am crate trained although it is not my favorite place to be...I do best with Bambi by my side. I have a bit of a wonky walk, which is from my arthritis so a home without stairs is a must.

Bambi and I do take daily Dasquin to help ease the stiffness. My daily joys include belly rubs, napping, patrolling the fenced backyard perimeters and I do love my treats! I will occasionally play with my favorite squeaky toy, but this is only when I feel a bit frisky. I am a bit hard of hearing, but don't worry I respond to a wave of a hand or if I am close I can hear you if you speak up just a little. I am a quiet boy who will only vocalize when you return home from a short outing and this is to let you know how very much I missed you. Let me introduce you to Bambi, she is my bonded mate and she is a beautiful Pug/Brussels Griffon southern girl that has impeccable manners. Bambi is beautifully house-trained, crate trained and also dog friendly. Neither Bambi or myself have any destructive behavior what so ever. Bambi enjoys sniffing around the yard, occasional sunbathing, rolling in the plush green grass, sleeping on the couch and she loves treats too! She isn't much for for toys or playing, but is a 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. 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 I don'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!

Ray is bonded with his sister Bambi.

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 a 12 year old neutered male who was found after Harvey at a local shelter. He is a gentle soul, and just wishes to live out his final years loved by a human of his very own. He does have dry eyes, spondylosis, and is mostly deaf and blind.

He likes to spend his days either sleeping next to you on a couch, or relaxing in a dog bed. He is great around other dogs and children and truly gets along with everybody.

RubyPH ID: #5403
Ruby is a precious little thing that comes to PugHearts looking for her fairy tale ending.

Ruby is a 8 month old fawn female. She is very petite; the size of a four month old. She is more of a Mocha color. She is a typical puppy: loves running, playing and snuggling. She also loves to chew! She gnaws on hooves or antlers. She is quite fond of a soft stuff ball. When you are sitting down, she wants to cuddle with you. She has a wonderful appetite and does better with a little wet food mixed with the kibble. She has learned the doggie door and has an occasional accident in the house. She sleeps all night and occasionally will need to go outside to potty during the night. She does sleep on the bed and wants to touch you or another fur baby when sleeping. When she stands up that's when she wants to go outside. No medical issues or special diet. She will be available after the 17th of December.

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?

ScoutPH ID: #5402
Scout is an 8 year old female. She is dealing with some allergies from fleas. She is heartworm negative and has been treated for tapeworms.

SethPH ID: #5422
Seth is a young male from the Rio Grande Valley. He has some significant skin issues and we will update once he sees the vet.

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!

ShemarPH ID: #5361
Shemar is an active happy guy that comes to PugHearts looking for forever love.

Shemar is a 4 year old male that comes to PugHearts from a Dallas area shelter. He is HW+ and will undergo HW treatment before he’s ready to be adopted. He is a very sweet boy with very good manners! He is potty trained, walks well on a leash, and loves nothing more than to be with his humans, whether on the couch watching TV, or outside enjoying fresh air.

Shemar was so easy to fall in love with that he will be adopted by his foster family once he finishes HW treatment! Congratulations Shemar!

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.

TilliePH ID: #5406
Foster Tilley is one of the prettiest little girls around. S

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

TugPH ID: #5415
Tug is a young fawn male that comes to PugHearts looking for a furever home that will love him forever.

He is scared and unsure of all the changes in his life right now.

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.

TyliePH ID: #5405
Tylie comes to us heartworm positive and it is clear she has been used for breeding. This girl is a complete sweetheart. She is enjoying all the attention and adores being pet. She is very playful but she entertains herself. She can throw her toys up to 3 feet high! She is crate trained, potty trained and already learned to sit on command. She is extremely velcro and gives great snuggles. She gets along really well with everyone, she is not toy or food possessive.

This dark beauty (her coat is amazing looking and super smooth) will be looking for a family of her own early next year once her heartworm treatment is completed.

VidaPH ID: #5412
PugHearts, please welcome our newest Mexican foster beauty, Vida ('life'); and did she ever fight for hers.

She is one of our extreme cases, who thanks to our wide network of angels, will never again suffer, starve, or sleep on the streets.

What we know: stray via shelter in Mexico; endured horrendous leg injury from being tied by her foot, resulting in life-saving amputation; healing nicely; severe cataracts both eyes; retains some vision; very tiny, maybe 12 pounds;

What I know: she is utterly fearless, but sweet; LOVES hugs; moves around BEAUTIFULLY); voracious eater; snores, but adorably; tonight enjoyed a lovely hot bath followed by gourmet dinner; back in the security collar for a long night's rest, in warmth, fluff and safety.

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!

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

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!

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!
