AdelaidePH ID: #5893
Foster Adelaide is a 8 year old pug. She is the perfect example of a lot pug. She loves to follow you wherever you go; can just lay beside you, on your lap or even beside your lap. She is a perfect lady, does not play with toys nor chew on hooves, just very laid-back. She is learning how to use a doggie door, but in the meantime she runs free around the house and does not use the restroom until you take her outside. She holds it all night also. She is not picky with her food, does tolerate grain-free kibble and has a wonderful appetite. She does not climb stairs, and sleeps in her doggie bed. She is a perfect princess. No health issues, no extra medications. She is already spayed and we'll be having dental and nares surgery at the end of March.

AdiraPH ID: #5885
Adira is a 5 year old fawn female who comes to PugHearts from yet another abusive, neglectful breeding situation.

She's had her spirit broken. She is fearful and hand shy. She has conquered fleas and intestinal parasites. Her spay is scheduled and ear infection clearing. She'll be given time to adjust to her new life as a loved pet vs. an incubator with little and/or only negative human interaction.

I look forward to her discovery of toys, playing, car rides, and neighborhood walks. I look forward to her new life as it always should have been. This is just the beginning Adria's new story.

Watch Facebook and Instagram for the Evolution of Adira the Pug posts. Her life of love has just begun. Watch her with me as she flourishes.

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

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

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

AllyPH ID: #5843
Ally is a sweet 5 year old girl that was found as stray in very rough condition. A good samaritan found her, and stayed with her until PugHearts could come to the rescue. Her name was Ally, so we decided it was only right to name her after her rescuer. She comes to us with severe demodex mange which has caused her to lose most of her hair, and when she was found, her skin was leathery with scabs and sores. It’s obvious that’s she’s been in this condition quite sometime, and before that spent most of her life in a cage, because she is gaining strength in her back legs everyday.

She’s a playful, loving, Velcro pug, and her personality is blossoming into a very happy and very sassy pug. It’s clear that she’s had several litters, and once her skin is clear, she will be scheduled for her spay and entropion surgery.

Ally is a talker, and will let you know how happy she is that you’re home! Her skin is so much softer and when her hair grows back, she’s going to have the most gorgeous apricot coat. Get applications in quick for this beautiful baby. She deserves nothing but the best from now on.

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

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

Aubrey 3PH ID: #5884
Aubrey is a loving and playful heartworm negative 6 year old pug who was rescued from a breeder. Despite a tough life breeding and being mistreated, she is working on warming up to humans. She plays well with other dogs and is learning quite a bit from them on how to be a care-free dog for the first time. She will go out in the grass as she is perfecting her house training. She loves to cuddle and loves running free in the backyard. Please consider giving her the life she has always deserved. With some consistent love, she will be a friend to all in no time!

Aubrey needs a spay, soft palate resection, and dental work, and then will be ready for your forever home.

BaileyPH ID: #5464
Bailey is a 9 year old female pug with great personality and sazzyness. She loves to be with her humans and sleep by their bedside. She gets along with her two foster siblings, but takes a while to warm up and doesn't like dogs in her face. She's a bit alpha but I think is mostly because she's afraid the other dogs will knock her down because her back is weaker than the other dogs. She gets along with my toddler, but I prefer if she goes to a calmer, more relaxed household where her humans can give her all the attention, petting and love that she likes.

She loves soft beds and blankets so we have several fluffy blankets spread throughout the house for her. She is very spoiled so would like her forever home to continue this trend. :-) She loves warm baths and getting pampered. She loves getting picked up and place in the recliner with you.

Bailey has spondylosis and results in a different gait and some fecal incontinence. However, her incontinence has improved significantly and she seems more aware of it now. The accidents inside the house have been reduced significantly as well. Her bladder infection was cured in April 2018 and she has been pretty healthy since then. She eats Prescription Diet C/D for Urinary Health. I also give her Dasuquin MS and a cranberry supplement to keep her healthy.

She goes up and down the stairs, which she didn't when we first got her in February 2018. She goes potty outside by standing around the door and knows very well when meal times are. She is smart, sweet, and a great companion. I would love to see her relax at her forever home with lots of love and spoils.

BanditPH ID: #5829
Meet Bandit! Bandit is a 2-3 year old “chug”, a chihuahua & pug mix. He’s a tiny package of personality! Bandit is housebroken and crate trained, but does sleep in a human bed well too. He loves other dogs, and would be happiest with a play partner or two! Bandit had a hip injury when he came to us, so has had surgery to help eliminate the pain. It didn’t slow him down before the surgery, nor has it since! He runs and jumps like nothing was ever wrong. He is sweet and cuddly, and will make a wonderful family member!

BeansPH ID: #5775
Beans is a 14 year old pug who loves 3 things: eating, sleeping, and eating again. He came to PugHearts a tad overweight at 26 pounds, but he has shed 2 pounds so far. He loves soft toys and is quite the character. Beans has had successful surgery to rid him of bladder stones, so he must stay on a restrictive diet to avoid a re-occurrence. He also has an old injury to his left eye and has no vision in it. Beans is a sedentary fellow who is happy with a low key lifestyle. He is happiest when he knows where you are and will especially follow you if you make your way into the kitchen....his favorite room. Beans sleeps in his own bed and is house trained. He gets along with other dogs and ignores the cat. Mr. Beans, as I refer to him, is a total sweetheart who is looking for a quiet home for his retirement years.

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

They are being adopted separately.

BelvederePH ID: #5593
Belvedere comes to PugHearts heartworm positive and with a severely broke jaw. He is being treated by the vet and we will update soon. This super chill guy will be looking for his forever home after his heart worm treatment.

Belvedere is a handsome, sweet 6 year old male pug. He is heartworm positive and will go through treatment soon. Since coming to Pughearts he had his jaw repaired from a severe break. He has fully recovered from this surgery. His right eye is under developed and he has limited vision in his left eye but this doesn’t slow him down at all. He quickly learned to use the stairs that allowed him to get on the couch with his human.

Belvedere loves to hang out by his humans and other dogs. He is super relaxed and very low maintenance pug. Naps are one of his favorite things! We are working on house training and crate training. Both are going well!

BennyPH ID: #5828
Benny is a 2 year old male that comes to PugHearts from a local shelter. He is heartworm negative, but is dealing with some nerve issues in one of his legs. He is recovering well and we are hopeful that he will be able to keep his leg.

Benny is a love and has charmed his foster family and they will be adopting him once he is medically cleared.

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

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

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

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

BlantonPH ID: #5869
Blanton is a 4 year old fawn male owner surrender. He's a large, very thick coated guy with soulful eyes. He loves to run in the yard, walks fairly well on a lead, and in typical pug form, is very friendly with everyone. He crates quietly and sleeps through the night. Since we don't know his prior living circumstances, he will need guidance with house manners. Sadly, he did not receive monthly preventatives, so now must endure heart worm treatment, followed by a month of crate rest, making him home ready in May. He will make a most cheerful, sturdy playmate for other bigger dogs and kids. Follow his Facebook posts and updates.

BoydPH ID: #5858
Boyd is a 6 year old brindle male. He is a pug mix, but he definitely got the pug personality. This big love of a boy is heartworm negative and already neutered. He is dealing with some skin issues that should be cleared up in no time.

Boyd is a strapping 42 pound hunk, looking for his forever home. He is estimated to be a 6 year pug mix with brindle coloring. He is very calm, gets along well with other dogs, cats, and other small animals. He is fully house trained and already neutered. He is being treated for a skin condition and will have a dental cleaning in mid-February. He can’t wait to find the family that will love him forever.

BrandyPH ID: #5816
Foster Brandy has arrived! She’s fighting a nasty case of demodex, but she’ll be back to her beautiful self in no time. She is a one year old, heartworm negative, bundle of pure love; and is just happy to be snuggled. She did well in her crate last night, and potties outside like a good girl. She’s got some healing to do before she’s ready for her forever home, but the time is going to fly by. Get those apps in now!!

BrisketPH ID: #5900
Brisket is a 2 year old male Bugg (Boston Terrier/Pug mix). He is heartworm negative, full of energy and scheduled for him neuter.

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!

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

ByronPH ID: #5742
Byron comes to Pug Hearts needing some medical care and TLC. He had an untreated skin allergy that resulted in him missing a lot of fur on his backside. A couple weeks with us and he already looks so much better. On 11/9 he will get a much needed dental, neuter, and a tumor removed from his leg. Then on 12/10 he goes for his heartworm treatment so Byron will be ready in January 2019. At approximately 11 years old Byron is very spunky and full of energy. He loves to roll in the grass and skip in the yard. He sleeps well in a human bed, dog bed, or kennel. He gets along great with his foster brothers and the resident cat. Byron says adopt me please!

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

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

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

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

CalliopePH ID: #5906

CarolPH ID: #5787
Hello humans. My foster mommy asked that I write a quick bio about myself. She suggested the first thing that I should mention is that I don't shed! I know mind blown, right? This is 100% true and is due to me being a pug/brussels griffon mix. The non-shedding side is from the Brussels Griffon genes. Another important fact about me is I would enjoy being an only child. I'm an extreme alphadog. Although there is harmony most days with my Foster Brothers there are still occasions that I like to be sure they know that I'm the boss! I love to snuggle and be with my human all of the time. I will roll over almost immediately for a belly rub. I'm not fond of being in a crate but if you close off an area I don't mind chilling out in there. I'm potty trained and would love to find someone to love me and all of my whiskers. What are you waiting for?

ChandlerPH ID: #5880
Chandler is a handsome 5 yr old fawn who came to PugHearts as a stray from Odessa I really don't think he's ever been in a house before but he is living the good life now. He mastered the doggie door his first day here and is busy learning some house manners He is sweet and will shadow your every move, a true velcro Pug He does have dry eyes and has meds put in them twice a day.

His neuter is mid March and then he should be ready for his forever family. Is that your family?

ClementinePH ID: #5879

Constance is also dealing with significant pain from arthritis in the other 3 legs and we are working hard to try and get her pain under control to assess her mobility potential following an amputation.

Despite it all, Constance is sweet and likes people.

CooperPH ID: #5716
Cooper is a young male from a Louisiana shelter.

Meet Cooper! This young boy is just a year old, but by his size is going to be a big hunk of a pug! For being so young, he is very well behaved! He is active, loves to play with other dogs and cats don’t bother him. He’s housebroken and does well in a crate. Of course he’d much rather be in the bed with his humans. This guy is healthy, fun, and would be a great addition to an active family!

DempseyPH ID: #5889

DexterPH ID: #5833

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

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

We are betting everyone will want dibs on Dibs

Foster Dibs the Dibmeister, Dibber Dawg, is heartworm negative and 11 yrs old, but I think he doesn’t know it. He was from a puppy mill and loves to play with any balls . He is living the life he should of lived instead being locked in a crate for most of his life. He has energy that would put any dog his age to shame. He has enough puppy energy to play but settles down and takes a nap to energize him for the rest of the day. He loves kids and people and other dogs. If you want a dog with some puppy energy without the teething and destruction? Dibs is your guy. Now who is ready to play ball!?????

DocPH ID: #5763
Doc is 7 years old and loves to be near people. He is a new foster so for now he likes his space and loves our oversized orthopedic dog bed. He is heart worm negative and is working on gaining a little weight. He does have dry eye which calls for a drop of med in each eye once a day for the rest of his life.

Doc has a slight back problem and is currently on medication for any pain. It does not slow him down at all and we are just careful not to let him jump up and down off furniture.

He is currently being kennel trained and potty trained. He loves kids, other dogs and could care less about our cat.

He needs to be in a home with other dogs. He loves to climb in your lap and lay upside down for tummy rubs. He never turns down a treat and kennels on command. We are still working on potty training but it is getting much better.

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

FelicityPH ID: #5897
Felicity is a 3 yr old owner surrender who is heartworm positive. Waiting for her will be well worth the reward. So get your applications in early for this sweet baby doll. Small, petite and 100% diva. She’s very loving and will stick like glue to snuggle next to you at bedtime. We are working on doggy door and potty manners, but she will use a pee pad in the house if one is down. She plays well with the others and I am sure she will do very well with children. Felicity will be ready for adoption early this summer. Follow her in our Facebook and Instagram pages for progress and up dates.

Hi my name is Frances. I am the sweetest 5 year old girl you have ever met! I love fiercely and believe it is my duty to keep you company in everything you do!

Need company while cooking? I’m there! Need help while you potty? I’m there!

I am housebroken and love cats, dogs and children. All I need now is a family of my own!

FranklinPH ID: #5901

GisellePH ID: #5684
Hi everyone, I am Giselle. I am an 8 year old heartworm negative female with a couple of special needs, who was rescued from El Paso. I am a very happy, feisty girl waiting for the perfect home.

Somewhere along the line I suffered a dislocated pelvis and a broken femur that was never repaired. I also have arthritis as a result in addition to being a bit deformed in the back. I do struggle on tile, but run across the grass or on rugs with a little bunny hop. I would need a kind owner who will carry me up and down steps as I cannot navigate them, nor can I use a dog door. My foster mom lays runner rugs for me. I am tiny so I can be carried where necessary without ruining your back.

While my walking is wonky, I do have full control over my bladder and bowels and am completely house trained. I know to go to the door to go outside. I love outside, and sunbathing, but need help getting back in.

I also had a bad eye injury, so I am a winky now. My remaining eye does not work well, and I get drops which I will need for life.

I may be tiny but have a big voice which I am not afraid to use. I slap you with my paw and bark when I want your attention. I love snuggling up next to my humans and submissive dogs who won't give me static. I am a bit of an alpha girl and will not hesitate to stand my ground.

I love food, treats, and fluffy toys which I toss in the air. Oom-a-loos are the best! I love scritches and belly rubs but due to my prior injuries cannot roll over. I do a slight roll on my side as a hint that my tummy needs rubs.

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

GraysonPH ID: #5774
Bio: Foster Grayson is the perfect pug. He weighs 12 pounds at the age of 4 years old. He is tiny which makes snuggles easy. He sleeps throughout the night without making much noise. He listens well when we call his name and follows directly when told no. He loves to play with his pug family and is kid friendly. As an extra bonus he has some very cute pug noises when you pet him.

GrendelPH ID: #5895
Full Description Coming Soon!

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

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

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

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

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!

JustinPH ID: #5882
Justin is a laid back senior who likes to be next to his humans. Justin is a 12 year young very active senior who comes to PugHearts vision Impaired but not blind. He shows a little sign of hearing.

KojiPH ID: #2129
Hi, my name is Koji. I am a 9 year old, 33 pound male, fawn pug. My owner passed away, which is how I came to PugHearts. I was well taken care of and have the sweetest disposition. I LOVE walks and will spin and hop when I see the leash. My foster mom is constantly bragging on me because I am just so awesome. I will go into the crate with a bribe, but prefer to hang out with my human. I love snuggles, hugs and lots of pets. When asked, I do speak, but otherwise I am a quiet pug. My foster mom thinks I may know other tricks too. I get along well with others and have shown no aggressiveness. I have been to work with my foster dad and was the best behaved dog there! I have no medical issues. All I need is a dental cleaning and I will be ready to be adopted.

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

MaxwellPH ID: #5821
Hey ya'll, Maxwell here. I am a 4 year old boy that came to PugHearts looking for a way to feel better and find my forever family.

I am doing much better now after having 2 surgeries. I had a hiatal hernia (meaning my diaphragm was allowing my stomach to move into my chest). As you can imagine, this was not making me feel very good. I am a normal playful pug now, just like any other pug, except that I have something called Mega Esophagus. Foster Mom says I have to take some medicine 30 minutes before I eat and then I have to eat standing up or sitting straight up like a real boy! After I eat, I have to stay upright for 30-45 minutes, so that my food stays in my stomach. This may only be temporary, while my body learns where my stomach is supposed to be, but we do not know for sure yet.

I am also heartworm positive and will have to go through treatment for that before I can be adopted.

I am worth the wait....so put in that application.

MayaPH ID: #5898
Welcome Mya to PugHearts. She’s an owner surrender coming to us from Louisiana. She’s 13 years old, and according to all her records, is HW- and up to date on her vaccinations.

He is a wonderful little companion, and he is quiet. The ideal home for him would be with someone that is home a lot and has time to love on him. Mochi is a lap dog that needs someone to love him during his golden years. He has plenty of love to give in return!

OdinPH ID: #5868
In mythology, Odin is the god of wisdom, healing, knowledge and poetry. In reality, Odin is a handsome male pug with the wisdom of his 8 years of living, healing from the pain of losing his former home and gaining the knowledge that he will soon find his forever family.

The poetry thing, you ask? Well, Odin prefers freestyle poetry so he howls his message of sadness whenever he has to be left alone. Humans would call this separation anxiety. Odin is being treated with medication and training to help him overcome his anxiety. He does not howl constantly or loudly. It is intermittent, usually a couple vocalizations followed by napping or just hanging out. However, for this reason, Odin will not be adopted to an apartment or condo home.

He takes an anxiety medication twice a day but it is believed with time and training that he may be able to taper off the medication or go off of it completely. Odin is otherwise very healthy with no other issues or medications. He's a big pug at 28 pounds but not overweight, just sturdy.

Odin is housebroken with no accidents in his foster home. He is crate trained and sleeps quietly through the night but he would really love to share the bed with you. This sweet guy is a great cuddle buddy and never met a soft surface he wouldn't curl up and take a nap on. Odin dreams of finding his forever family with an experienced owner who will be his alpha and show him that he is loved and safe. Check out Odin's exploits on our Facebook page or come meet him in person at an adoption event soon.

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.

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!

Ruby 6PH ID: #5773
Ruby comes to PugHearts from a local shelter. She has diabetes and we are working to regulate her insulin. She, shockingly, also has a sewing needle lodged in the soft tissue of her neck. She is feeling better now that that has been removed.

She sure is a cute little girl. She is very active and doesn’t let her vision affect her in the least. I was quite surprised at how much vision she still has. She hit the floor running the first day and hasn’t slowed down since. I wasn’t really sure about fostering this beauty. I’ve had quite a variety of pugs with ailments over the years but I’ve never had a diabetic pug. I was really nervous but have found that it’s really not a big deal. She eats twice a day and I give her the shot while she’s eating. The only difference between me getting my insulin and her is I don’t wiggle around like she does.

Ruby will need to go through her heartworm treatment so she won’t be ready for a couple of months but she definitely is a pug that will make a fantastic addition to any family. She’s active and quite loving. She’s really fun, Ruby is so extremely happy, happy as can be with no worries in the world. It sure would be nice if the world took direction from her attitude.

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

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

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

TempiePH ID: #5840
Introducing Foster Tempie who is now ready to find her own family. During her dental she lost 27 teeth so that pretty much means she’s toothless, I think she has two left. However she seems to be doing just fine with the food. I've never had a pug that let a little thing like no teeth stop them from eating.

Tempie is 11 years old and a very tiny pug. She is extremely well behaved, is potty trained, does not bark and does just fine with the other fosters. She is deaf. She's not the typical in your face pug, she likes to lay in a bed or on the couch. She absolutely loves to go into her crate. She sure would like to have a bed all her own, if you have an extra one please consider letting her hang out with you

TessPH ID: #5501
Sweet Tess is an 11 year old female with spinal issues. She was surrendered due to changes in her family.

Tess is a beautiful fawn female, about 9-11 years old and owner surrendered when her family could no longer take care of her and her fur siblings. We can truly say Tess picks her human and becomes obsessed with them. She has picked her foster daddy lol. She pines for him when he is not in her line of vision. Her previous owners thought she was paralyzed and carried her around but Tessy walks just fine, especially if Foster Daddy leaves the room, Tessy gets up to follow him. She has either IVDD or DM. Fortunately she is continent of urine and stool and we take her out for frequent potty breaks. Unfortunately, due to being a spinal dog, she has chronic UTI's. She likes toys, sleeping in the big bed next to her person and head scratches. She will defend her food from the other pugs if they get too close, barks at the younger dogs when they get too rowdy and can get quite feisty. She is a special needs pug so probably will not get adopted. But that's ok, we will enjoy her for as long as needed.

TilliePH ID: #5724
Tillie is a 5 year old female from a local shelter. She is heartworm negative and dealing with a bladder infection. We found struvite crystals in her urine, so she is now on prescription food so that she will not have to deal with any further bladder issues. She is a pug mix...but we are happy to have been able to help save her life.

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?



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.

ValentinoPH ID: #5887
Valentino - an apricot male pug that has a lot of energy and loves running around. At the age of 1, he is playful and always wants to be around his human. He feels peaceful when sleeping on the bed with his parent, but he can also sleep on his own. However he does not like to be crated, he will bark gently and let you know. He is 70% trained but he will soon be fully housebroken. Valentino is smart and he knows his name in just few days. This little guy loves to be walked by his foster dad daily and get excited whenever seeing dad hold his hardness. He gets along well with people, his favorite is sleeping and relaxing on the sofa while his parents are watching tv.

This is a tall guy but not fat, his weight is at 22 lbs. He was found randomly on the street and was safely handled to PugHearts.

Unfortunately, Valentino is heartworm positive and will be on treatment before being ready to adopt.

VicentePH ID: #5890
Vicente is our newest south of the border baby. He is a 12 pound neutered fawn male. He's at least 5 pounds underweight. We call him Guapo (handsome) for obvious reasons. He was found in deplorable shape; eyes ruptured, oozing and infected; starving and flea ridden, yet such spirit, he never stopped wagging. He is the poster child for PugHearts' ingenuity and teamwork. People messaged, rallied, and stepped up to get him to Houston (inclement weather be damned) within 1 day, so he could get the emergency care he so desperately needed. Our gifted veterinary staff performed all necessary surgeries. Remarkably, he is heart worm negative. He is just 2 years old. Enter recovery. Here he will heal and learn to be the loved pet he's never gotten to be. He is among other my blind rescues and our home is modified safe for them. Don't tell these dogs they are handicapped; they do not know it. Blind dogs rock. Aside from the dangers of a pool, pokey or oft rearranged furniture, or a careless open door, they're like any sighted dog. Someone commented on Vicente's earlier post these 5 profoundly sweet words, "They see with their hearts..."...

Follow Vicente's transformation and adventures on Facebook and Instagram. For now? Groceries; belly rubs; stuffies; more groceries.

ViolaPH ID: #5723
Sweet Viola comes to PugHearts from a local shelter. She is sadly, heartworm positive, hard of hearing and vision impaired...all at about 10 years of age.

Viola, sigh…….. This girl has completely stolen my heart. I saw her face in the picture and fell in love …. then she came to my house and I was completely lost. In the spirit of full disclosure, Viola has several issues, she’s blind, has severe heartworms, back issues, and anemic (from ticks); But she’s absolutely PERFECT! She hears just fine, so she doesn’t have any issues with getting around the house. It will be several months before she completes her heartworm treatment, but after that she sure will be a good lap pug for someone. She loves to be held and will just lay her head on my shoulder, kind of like she’s hugging me …… sigh. And she’s around 10 years old … Seniors ROCK!!!!!.

Viola has such a huge amount of love to give, if you can commit to only a fraction of what she will give you she will be truly loved and have exactly what we want for her.

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

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

Special Notes

Vivian has hydrocephalus and consequently has neurological issues

WendellPH ID: #5874
Wendell is a 1 year old male pug. He has SO much energy and is SO happy to see you. He is heartworm negative and not completely house trained. We call him wizzer and have to watch him very closely. We are working on potty training and he minds very well and does go outside. He gives hugs and kisses and loves tummy rubs. He is VERY handsome and extra sweet. He just needs consistency and love.

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

Wilson is only 6 years old, severe heartworm positive and dealing with old injuries that are causing his hips and back to be sore and weak.

From Wilson's foster: Wilson is a love muffin! Wilson was timid and frightened when he first came to live here, but he has relaxed and is much more secure and happy! He is 6 yrs old, crate trained, neutered, mostly house trained, loves to sit with his humans, and gets along with all the dogs in the house. I am sure he would be great with children as he is so gentle.

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

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


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

ZeldaPH ID: #5768
Foster Zelda is a puppy mill survivor and has had a hard life … until now. She is really tiny and extremely loving. She is obsessed with her human and wants to be held or at least close at all time. She would be very happy to be an only dog or one of a small pack. She has a ways to go with heart worms, spay and mammary tumor removal but she will be the perfect fit for some lovely family. She should be ready to start her search after January.
