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

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.

Austin has completed his heartworm treatment!

BaileyPH ID: #5464
Sweet Bailey is a 9 year old female. She comes to PugHearts due to changes in her former home.

Bailey is a 9yrs old owner surrender that came to PugHearts with several conditions. She is very sweet and super velcro, will follow you around 24/7. She is OK with the crate for short periods (4-5 hrs). She has a lot of determination and an alpha personality, but so far gets along with my dogs and toddler. She prefers to sleep on a bed by the end or side of our bed. She likes to get pampered a often and loves warm baths. She requires a prescription food for urinary health and has spondylosis. She has some incontinence, if taken outside often she does really good inside the house.

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. We lost our loving home when our owner suddenly passed away.

I am a beautiful Pug/Brussels Griffon southern girl that has impeccable manners. I am beautifully house-trained, crate trained and also dog friendly. 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. I would flourish in a less active, calm home with someone who is home most of the time. I currently do not share a home with children and the hustle and bustle of children would be to much for me.

I love to follow you around the house as you do your daily chores and am content sleeping in the bedroom at our foster home on those thick orthopedic beds. Best part, you won't hear a peep out of me all night, well ok, maybe a little snoring.

I hope you won't pass me by because well, I am not a young pup anymore, I will bring sunshine to your home daily and would be very grateful for a forever home. Don't wait a moment longer to apply for this sweet girl!

BarryPH ID: #5563
Barry is a 7 year old fawn male. He is heartworm negative and scheduled to be neutered.

BeatricePH ID: #5564
Introducing Lady Beatrice of Houston! A lady never tells her age, but since we are a rescue that believes in full disclosure, she’s 6 yrs old. She is heartworm negative and ready to go to her forever home after her spay and dental 6/19. She has impaired vision and uses Sandimmune for dry eye. She has mapped the house out very well and knows how to get outside to potty. She does have indoor accidents, unlady like, but we’re working on it! She’s a little curvier than necessary so we’re working on that as well. If you’re interested in adopting Beatrice and are approved, let your adoption coordinator know! If not, fill out an application

BerthaPH ID: #5430

She is heartworm negative and dealing with a bladder infection.

This sweetie is a lover. She does have trachea issues and is on medication to help with the coughing. Her bladder infection cleared up well and she is feeling much more spunky. She had her dental and spay and is doing very well.

Bertha has the softest Bunny Rabbit fur. She is a cuddler and lover.

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!

Big KahunaPH ID: #5529

Meet The Big Kahuna.

This gorgeous boy weighs in at 29 solid pounds. He is not fat, just BIG!

He is 5 years old and sadly, severe heartworm positive. He is on medication to stabilize his heart and lungs while we get him ready for heartworm treatment.

This love is vision impaired from untreated dry eye and his ears are full of infection and yeast.

Despite all of this, he is sweet and cuddly.

He will be worth the wait!

BoydPH ID: #5595
Full Description Coming Soon!

BrycePH ID: #5587
Bryce is a handsome senior man looking for a family to call his own.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

CharliePH ID: #5495
Charlie is a sweet older gentleman that comes to PugHearts from a local shelter. He is 10 years old. He came in with a bladder infection with possible stones and also an ear infection. He has completed his medications and is doing better. He will be neutered and an ultrasound will be done on his bladder to see if surgery needs to be done. He appears to be hard of hearing and sight impaired. He gets around great though and has adjusted well to his new surroundings at his foster's. He is on prescription food for now. He is pretty laid back and likes to be around his human. He is either in your lap or lying on floor next to your chair. So far he is not engaging in play activity with the other dogs and more or less ignores them other than being curious about them. He is potty trained most of the time. He sleeps in a crate at night. He is a sweet boy.

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. ??

DeannaPH ID: #5500
Deanna is a 9 year old fawn female. She was surrendered to PugHearts due to changes in her family.

Deanna is spayed and heartworm negative!

Deanna is a sweet, nine year old fawn female. She's a very easy going, light hearted girl. She's content with little. She loves walks and treats. She's content to share the couch with you but doesn't have to be in your lap. She's house broken and does great on a leash. She's been great around other dogs and our eight month old. Any family would be lucky to have her. She's nimble and gets around without any problems. If you're looking for an easy, loving dog she's definitely the one. And her tongue sticks out sometimes...its the cutest!

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 :)

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 ??????.

DylanPH ID: #5573
Dylan is an 18 month old male from a local shelter.

He had severe trauma to his eye and it had to be removed.

Dylan is, sadly, severe heartworm positive and will have to go through treatment prior to adoption.

ErniePH ID: #5520
Ernie is a handsome and gentle 9 year old male. He is heartworm negative and already neutered.

Ernie is a hunk of squishy love! He is 9 years old and healthy. The short time I have had Ernie he has proven to be the epitome of a squishy, loving Pug. He loves to lay next you on the couch or follow you room to room. He has the cutest waddle when he walks and runs which resembles a bulldog to me. He is slightly overweight at the moment but we are working on that. So far has done great with the other dogs in the house and also the cat. Ernie is a loud snorer and he loves to make himself comfortable in the bed so if you’re a light sleeper then having his own bed would be the best option. Make sure you get your applications in because as soon as this guy starts showing up at events I’m positive he will be snatched up!

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 heartworm negative and deals with some dry eye (with resulting vision issue)

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.

JaxPH ID: #5432
Jax is a 7 year old blind male pug. He was surrendered with his friend Cass, but they are not bonded.

Jax is a 7 year old fawn male who was surrendered to PugHearts with his friend Cass. He lost an eye when he was young and is totally blind in the other eye. He is otherwise a healthy happy boy. When he first entered his foster home, he paced for about 3 days. He was mapping the furniture. Now he gets around with little effort. He explores the back yard and finds his way back to the back door. He would not do well with someone who likes to move their furniture all the time. He has a good appetite and goes straight to the kennel when you say kennel. He will also find his way onto the sofa, even the back of it, by himself. He will not jump off however and will whimper to let you know he would like to get off. He gets along with other dogs and is very possibly bonded to his buddy Cass who was surrendered to PugHearts when he was.

JeagerPH ID: #5594
Jaeger is an 8 month old Bugg ( Boston Terrier/ pug mix). Jaeger is a friendly, playful guy that loves to be your shadow. He gets along with all size dogs, but he tends to want to chase the cats.

He doesn't seem to mind being in a crate and often goes in on his own to play with his toys. Being a puppy we are working on potty training but he still has some accidents now and then. He is also learning what to bark at and what not to, so an apartment may not be the best place for him right now.

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

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

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

JediPH ID: #5305
Jedi is a 12-year old who has had a remarkable recovery from surgery to alleviate pain from a pinched nerve.

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.

Don't let this cute little love bug get away!

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!!

She is the SWEETEST pug ever and would be an awesome addition to your family.

MarcusPH ID: #5527
Meet Marcus......he is looking forward to meeting you.

Marcus is a 3-year old male fawn rescued from a Texas shelter. He is very friendly, enthusiastic, and gets along well with other dogs. His most distinctive feature is his large adorable face. He is recovering from Heart worm disease and will have to go through heartworm treatment prior to adoption. Despite his luxating left patella, he loves to run around and play with toys.

Marcus is easy to manage because he is potty trained, crate trained, and he is very obedient. He does not whine and only barks when he hears a knock at the door (or tv) or if he feels threatened. He loves to get belly rubs and back massages and spends most of the day snoozing in his bed cuddled up with his favorite lobster stuffed animal.

MelodyPH ID: #5578
Everyone, welcome Melody.

She was found on a road near Dallas sitting there in pouring rain.

The reason she was just sitting there is because she cannot walk.

Melody is also severe heartworm positive and will have to go through heartworm treatment before she can be adopted.

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!

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

Medical hold and then pending adoption with his foster Mom.

Though under-nourished (we are working on that) his coat is shiny. He's crate trained and learned to use the doggy door in 1 day. He gets along well with my other dogs. He loves to cuddle and follows me around everywhere and anywhere. So if you like your privacy and space, he's not for you.

Meet Stubby! He’s a handsome 17 pound three year old. Sweet Stubby follows me around all day. He gets excited to play for a couple of minutes a few times a day, and then is happy to relax the rest of the time (so, basically, he’s a pug ??). He’s amazing with our kids and our other pug, although he’s very excitable around food, so it’s best to keep a close eye at dinner time!

Stubby is heartworm positive, and should be ready for his forever home sometime at the end of the summer. He’s mostly potty trained, and usually sits on command. He’d be happiest in a home where he can be someone’s shadow all day, following them around and laying at their feet.


SullivanPH ID: #5496
Hey y’all my name is Sullivan I was just picked up by PugHearts.

Foster Sullivan has such a cute underbite, he says “stahp making phun of my teefers”.

Hello! I’m Sullivan #2 known as Sully or Big Boy to my foster family!

I’m about 2 years old and just under 20lbs. I’m a healthy baby boy and love playing tugs with my foster sister. I do have a bum knee (luxating patella) which doesn’t even bother me unless I jump from high places and land funny so I use stairs to climb up and down on the humans bed. My foster mom likes to make fun of my teefers because I have a big underbite but she feeds me so I let her. I am a Velcro pug and will follow my human every step of the way. Toys are new for me and I’m warming up to them- so far soft squeak toys are my favorite.

Look how cute I am. How do you like my nose role?

I’m ready to go to my fur-ever home, could that be with you?!

SuziePH ID: #5491
Suzie is a 10 year old fawn female. She comes to PugHearts looking for someone to love her in her golden years.

Introducing my new foster, Suzie. She is 8-10 yrs old, small in size (9.5 lbs) and a true Velcro pug. She has been neglected and came to us with bad skin soars and under weight. But her skin is healing nicely and she loves to eat! She loves to be in your lap, sleeping snuggling up with you or under your feet. Those are the only choices! She does have a spinal issue that causes her back legs to sometime flare out, so I don't recommend her being placed in a home with small children. She gets along well with the other dogs and we are working on potty training. She will be spayed and getting a dental in April.

Teddy BearPH ID: #5596
Teddy Bear is a young boy that comes to us from a local animal facility with a severe case of demodex mange and an accompanying skin infection. He is receiving medical care and he will be feeling and looking better in no time.

TheodorePH ID: #5552
Theodore 2 says no bones about it. Indoor life rules.

This guy is fairly new to PugHearts. A 2 year old fawn stray who sadly, after what appears months of no care, is severe heart worm positive, & pounds underweight. He has had his neuter.

We are still acquainting, but I assess:

He is BEAUTIFUL, tall & long; his appetite for toys & food taller & longer. He LOVES my other pugs, & plays voraciously. There is zero indication he has ANY leash, crate or potty training. Rest assured, I'm emphatic about all 3. Being that restoring him to health will take several months, I have confidence in us. Beyond me, he will need a forever home where all occupants will continue consistent, diligent guidance.

With this new 'degree plan', Theodore 2 is bound to graduate an astounding family addition late August to September.

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

TitoPH ID: #5592
Full Description Coming Soon!

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

TracyPH ID: #818
Tracy is a cute little fawn female. She is a 9 year old Companion pug who was given to Pughearts through no fault of her own. She was timid when she first came to her foster family, but has quickly become more secure and her personality is emerging. Tracy is crate trained, house trained and has a good appetite. She does have some weakness in her spine but that does not slow her down much. She runs with the other pugs, can jump onto the sofa and keep up with them all. She loves toys and loves people. She has a small voice which she uses to talk to you when it’s food time or just to see what you’re doing. Consider giving this precious girl a forever home!

(The weak spine causes her to be incontinent during the night.)

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.

ValeriePH ID: #5580
Valerie is a 5 year old female from a local shelter. Sadly, she is severe heartworm positive and will have to go through heartworm treatment prior to adoption.

Victoria 3PH ID: #5471
Victoria comes to PugHearts very malnourished. She is an 8 year old tiny girl. She is, happily, heartworm negative....but is very thin from lack of food.

She is safe now and will receive the very best of care.

Victoria came from a shelter in Dallas badly malnourished, not able to stand and with what appeared to be a fractured back. We were not sure whether she was suffering so she was placed under quality of life monitoring in order to decide whether it was best to set her free or whether she could still fight. The day she came home she wanted to explore the yard, she ate like a St. Bernard and loved all the attention. It was obvious she wants us to fight for her.

After her initial neurological consultation and an MRI we found out her back was not broken, she was born with her spine not developed properly. She is currently taking antibiotics for inner ear infection and once she is ready the decision will be made if any of her deformities can be helped surgically.

However, regardless of what the decision is, Victoria charmed her vet tech so much she will be going home with her whenever all of her treatments are completed!

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

WaynePH ID: #5475
Wayne is an adorable fawn male that has charmed everyone he has met so far.

Wayne is a 4 year old pug boy picked up as a stray in Dallas and went unclaimed. Like most dogs on the streets, Wayne is HW positive though healthy in every other way. I can’t imagine why anyone would throw away such a perfect dog.

Wayne is a beautiful apricot boy, very intelligent, sensitive and inquisitive. His personality is coming out and he is a happy and playful boy who learned the dog door in record time. Wayne is a charmer and is a true Velcro pug who loves nothing more than being with his person; he is the perfect bed sleeper curling like a cat into a ball next to you. He would make a marvelous agility or therapy dog.

Sorry folks, the gorgeous Wayne is spoken for; after his HW treatment he heads to his fur-ever home with the Hendricksons.

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!

WrigleyPH ID: #5589
Wrigley is a precious young boy from a local shelter. He is dealing with sarcoptic mange and is heartworm positive. He has a long way to go, but we will help him all along the way.

YogiPH ID: #5546
Yogi is a young male found by a kind person who took him in off the streets.

Meet Foster Yogi. He is a beautiful and and a soft 3 year old Golden color winky pug male. He is a super velcro pug who loves all humans and animals alike. His sings cute little songs and is always wagging a tail and smiling. Yogi is most happy spending time with family and playing outside with his many squeaky toys. He is housebroken, crate trained, leash trained, with no food aggression, so basically perfect little guy, and he never stole a picnic basket. :-) LOL So, Hey Boo Boo, won't you consider bringing this sweetheart home today?
