AbnerPH ID: #5059
Abner is a senior fawn male. He is squishy and cuddly and we are all in love with him already!

From Abner's foster: Abner is amazing! He is 13 years old, blind, deaf, doesn’t have a tooth in his head and is perfect! It is thought he was bonded to another foster I had, Sampson, but I don’t think he was. He has adjusted extremely well and is completely off all anxiety medications. Abner doesn’t do much, he just walks around and when he wants to rest lays down where he’s at and takes a nap. He does like to be held, he seems to like me to talk to him, I believe he feels the vibrations in my chest.

Abner is an extremely easy pug to care for. I put him out on the patio to potty with the whole group of fosters and he will walk around and do his business. I usually do have to go into the yard to bring him back in, but in the last week he has been at the patio door twice so I think he may be getting more comfortable with the yard.

Abner is completely adoptable. He’s not sick, no medications at all. He potties outside (I have to put him out though). He doesn’t bark unless he wants something (usually food). But the most amazing thing about Abner is his face. He is the most handsome old guy I’ve ever had. I can just sit for hours looking at him. He will take a special person to commit to taking care of him but he is so worth it. I won’t be bringing him to a lot of events but if you would like to meet him just let your adoption coordinator know and we will make it happen. But be warned, no one has ever met Abner that didn’t fall in love with him.

AmbrosiaPH ID: #5145
Ambrosia is a young female that comes to PugHearts from a local shelter.

She will be seen by the vet and we will update soon.

AnakinPH ID: #5139
Anakin is a young male that was found wandering around all alone.

He is heartworm negative and scheduled for his neuter.

Anakin is dealing with some demodex mange ( non-contagious).

AngiePH ID: #5118
Angie is a 6 yr old pug mix. She is thought to be a pug / peke mix. Angie is severe heartworm positive and we have just completed bladder surgery to remove bladder stones.

She did well and will now be on a prescription diet for life to prevent the stones from coming back.

Angie will have to go through heartworm treatment prior to adoption.

AuroraPH ID: #4990
Aurora is a 3 year old female that came to PugHearts from Pasadena Animal Shelter with sarcoptic mange. She is currently undergoing treatment and once her skin has healed, she will be spayed, and ready for her "furever" family!

From Aurora's foster: Aurora gets along with her foster grumble and especially loves to follow my 2 black pugs. This little girl has been in my care for almost a week and has had no potty accidents! She's content to snuggle and loves to follow me around the house. Aurora can't wait to go to her forever home! Could you be Aurora's perfect family?

AutumnPH ID: #5090
Autumn is a terrier/chihuahua mix that delivered 4 precious little ones at a local shelter.

We were able to take her in and provide a safe and secure place for her to care for her new family.

Autumn is about 8 pounds and will be spayed as soon as she stops nursing puppies.

Her 4 babies are: Leif (M), Ash (male), Cedar (male) and Sage (female).

Autumn is a lover and (happily) heartworm negative.

BabyPH ID: #5070
Baby is a precious girl from the San Antonio area.

She is very attached to her people and is a "velcro" pug.

She is heartworm negative and spayed.

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!

BartholomewPH ID: #5161
Meet Bartholomew.

He is a 4 yr old male owner surrender due to changes in the family. He is heartworm negative.

BeautyPH ID: #5135
Beauty is a 13 yr old female that comes to PugHearts due to changes in the health of her previous owner.

She has some skin issues and ear infections, but is already under the care of the vet.

Beauty is blind, but super squishy and loveable.

BessiePH ID: #4946
Bessie is an 11 year old spayed female. She is heartworm negative and scheduled have a dental done to make her feel better.

She comes to PugHearts with her sister Beulah as an owner surrender through no fault of their own.

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!

BeulahPH ID: #4945
Beulah is an 11 year old spayed female. She is heartworm negative and scheduled have a dental done to make her feel better.

She comes to PugHearts with her sister Bessie as an owner surrender through no fault of their own.

BossPH ID: #5150
Boss is a 2 yr old black male that comes to PugHearts from a local shelter. He is heartworm negative.

Boss has mange and we are treating that prior to his adoption. This boy is looking for a family to love and adore him forever.

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!

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!!

ButtersPH ID: #5158
Meet Butters.

He comes to PugHearts with his brother and father.

Butters has an issue with his back or hips. He will be evaluated by our vet and we will update soon.

Cassie is a precious 3 yr old female that was hit by a car.

She has a shattered pelvis and a dislocated hip.

She is severe heartworm positive.

Along with multiple surgeries to repair the pelvis she will have to go through heartworm treatment before adoption.

ChewyPH ID: #4931
Chewy is a fawn male, 9 years old and (happily) heartworm negative. He is visually and hearing challenged, but that doesn't stop him from being housebroken, sweet, loving, and cuddly. He is very soft and enjoys his baths as well as the outdoors. He gets along with other dogs and cats just fine. He barks when he needs to go potty, but otherwise is not a barker. He talks when he wants attention. He would prefer not to sleep with his human as the movements startle him awake. To introduce yourself and before petting, a sniff is best. He has a lot to give to an open heart.

ChloePH ID: #966
Chloe fawn female. She has a beautiful coat and big chocolate eyes with a cute tongue that sticks out.

From Chloe's foster: Chloe is a six year old fawn female. While a bit of an alpha female, she is just full of personality. She enjoys constant companionship, burrowing in blankets, and going nuts outside chasing squirrels and anything else that moves. She's completely house trained and kennel trained although I'm sure she would prefer sleeping with her humans. She is very healthy and is looking for her new family. And yes, that magnificent tongue is like that all the time (and no its not slobbery)!

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!

ConniePH ID: #5127
Connie is a 5 yr old female that comes to PugHearts with significant skin infections and yeast overgrowth.

She is (sadly) heartworm positive.

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 just completed Phase I of her heartworm treatment and will receive Phase II in mid January. She is only 4 years old and a small girl. She loves to cuddle at night and knows how to use the doggy door. She will be ready for adoption around Feb 14, 2017 just in time for Valentine's Day!

CupcakePH ID: #4763
Cupcake is a 7 year old female.

She was surrendered to PugHearts due to changes in the family.

From Cupcake's foster: Cupcake: a pug as sweet as the confection for which she is named. She is a 7 year old fawn female who was surrendered to PugHearts due to changes in the family. Cupcake has the softest velvet coat of any pug. She is a darling little girl with a whole lot of attitude. She gives new meaning to alpha girl, and happily takes on her foster sisters. She does enjoy the company of other pugs. She has bad eyes but does not let that slow her down; she can see somewhat out of one eye and has daily meds for this. She is a playful little lady who loves toys, bones and FOOD. Unfortunately, sweet little Cuppy has both congestive heart failure and pulmonary hypertension and will not be up for adoption.

Special Notes

Cupcake is on hospice care and will live out the rest of her days as a spoiled rotten foster pug.

CyrusPH ID: #5037
Cyrus is a 6-7 yr old fawn male. He is heartworm negative and was found wandering all alone.

From Cyrus' foster: Introducing our newest foster, Cyrus Beene! This handsome fellow is around 6-7 years old, and he loves to run and play.

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!

DevonPH ID: #5058
Devon is a 7 yr old black male. He is severe heartworm positive and dealing with bad skin condition.

From Devon's foster: Devon came to us in August of 2016 as a stray. He is currently HW+ but he starts his treatment on Dec-12th. He should be adoptable by the end of January.

Devon is the perfect gentleman. Don't let his white hair fool you, it is just his wisdom showing! He is only 7 years young and he acts it. He will run and play with you and follow you around the house. The moment you sit on the couch he knows it is time to relax. He is a great snuggler and loves his chest rubs.

Devon is house trained, crate trained (he goes in his crate by himself and sits down), great with other dogs and he knows to sit and shake both paws. He is a very quiet boy and you have to love his permanent bottom teeth smile!

DexterPH ID: #5101
Dexter is a 2 yr old male chug that was found running loose all alone and no one came looking for him.

He is heartworm negative and neutered.

From Dexter's foster: Dexter was found by a good Samaritan running loose in a neighborhood.

He was checked for a microchip and none was found, and they contacted PugHearts. Dexter is between 2-5 years old and is heart worm negative and neutered. He has bilateral luxating patellas but is otherwise a healthy and happy 16lb. Pug Chihuahua mix with a big personality. He is always up for running zoomies in the backyard, wrestling with the other pups in his foster home and chasing after toys. He is fond of chewing on nylabones and hard rubber toys. He can get excited and be a little mouthy with his humans. That is being addressed at this time and will hopefully be a non issue in the not so distant future. He would probably do best in a family with older, considerate children or adults only. He is house trained if you are paying attention. He is crated for a few hours a day while his humans are at work. He may protest for a few minutes but will settle down. He sleeps in a crate at night and doesn't make a peep. He is an early riser and will make it known that he needs to be let outside. He is fed in his crate as he gets very excited at meal time and can be food and treat aggressive.

He sits on command. He loves to jump in your lap and receive belly rubs and snuggle and fall asleep. He is not big on giving kisses, and he sheds very little even though his fur is like a pug's. He is adorable and would love to be in his forever home by Christmas.

DillingerPH ID: #4316
Dillinger is a 6 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.

EdwardPH ID: #5055
Edward is an 8 yr old fawn male. He is heartworm negative and is scheduled for his neuter and dental.

Edward has bad knees, but is otherwise healthy.

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)

FrankPH ID: #5102
Frank is a 10 yr old male surrendered to the shelter at 10 yrs old age due to a new cat in the house. He is severe heartworm positive and neutered.

From Frank's foster: Frank never meets a stranger. He is a very sweet LOVING guy that is always ready to give kisses. Frank is a happy goofy pug.

Frank loves all people and animals. He enjoys walking and playing or snuggling under the covers, whichever his human prefers. Frank stays beside his human ALL the time. Frank is willing to share his humans lap as long as he has room.

Frank is well mannered, housebroke, and knows a few simple commands.

GabrielPH ID: #4536
PugHearts’ Gabriel is a 9-11 year old fawn male that is ready to find his forever family. He is up-to-date on vaccinations, recently had a dental, and is healthy. He is hard of hearing, but is still quite spry and spunky – even sprinting around the back yard in circles when he gets excited (a senior – really?). He loves attention and is very vocal at dinner. He doesn’t mind letting you know that he’s hungry (Pugs!). He is potty trained to a doggie door and gets along well with other dogs and children. When he came to PugHearts from a shelter, he was overweight and covered in fleas. Fortunately, he was heartworm negative. A bath and proper diet have fixed the rest. Speaking of which, the good doctors at Sugarland Pet Hospital saw “struvite crystals” in Gabriel’s urine and so they prescribed “Royal Canin Urinary SO” dog food. Don’t let that scare you. He’s never had a stone and a $55, seventeen pound bag of food provides over three months of meals (98 meals in fact at one cup/day). This guy wants as much love as you will give and when you’re busy, he’s okay with that too. Are you the person that will carry him through and show him love in his golden years? Seniors need love and a family too. Consider adopting this fantastic and oh-so-lovable Pug today!

GidgetPH ID: #1027
Gidget is a 10 year old black female. She is owner surrended through no fault of her own. She is heartworm negative. She came to us with some skin issues that are resolved for the most part under medical care. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on her vaccinations.

From Gidget's foster: She is a delight to have . She walked into our home and within a few days adjusted to her new life. She gets along well with our other dogs. She is very good with our grandchildren.

She is house broken. Enjoys her walks. She is more active then the average 10 year old. Loves to play with her toys and of course get as much one on one time for cuddling and belly rubs.

GizmoPH ID: #299
Gizmo is a fawn male. The gentle senior man is a reserved and calm guy. He has been adopted and returned to PugHearts twice. Neither time was the issue with him. He is now a bit standoffish and reserved (I think to protect himself) until he knows you well. He is heartworm negative and uses the doggie door in my house. Gizmo loves kids and wants to be near people as much as he can. Gizmo has an undeveloped eye, but there are no other health issues. Are you the person that can truly deliver the forever promise that Gizmo wants so desperately? He is waiting.

GladysPH ID: #5053
Gladys is a heartworm negative fawn female from a local shelter. She is being treated for bad skin issues related to fleas and yeast overgrowth on her skin. She is spayed, micro chipped and up to date on all vaccines.

From Gladys's foster: Introducing Gladys Louise! She is a very sweet, laid back petite girl approximately 5 years old. And look at those ears!! When I first got Gladys, she was very timid and shy. She has been slowly coming out of her shell and has developed such a cute personality.

Gladys has a great appetite and really enjoys her kibble, fruits, and veggies. She has even acquired a taste for sardines and LOVES them!!

Gladys likes to sleep right next to me at night. She is quite the snuggler and doesn't snore! She has also mastered going up and down the stairs to my bed.

Gladys likes to be around me, but also likes her "me time" in her own bed. She will play a little bit, but is really more laid back. She is very loving. I think Gladys is more suited to a home without children (no offense intended) with someone who just wants to love her and consider her "the baby". She will give you love double fold and will make you smile everyday. Gladys would be such a wonderful, loving addition to your home. Thank you for considering giving her a forever home.

GordonPH ID: #5153
Meet Gordon. This young guy is looking for a playful active family to love him forever.

GrannyPH ID: #4831
Granny is a 9 yr old fawn female. She has dry eye and is receiving medication for that. Granny is heartworm negative and already spayed.

From Granny's foster: Granny, also known as GiGi, is a very young 9 year old owner surrender from The Valley, who weighs about 15 lbs. She is a happy and loving fawn girl, who gets along great with other dogs, and does fine with infants and toddlers. She's completely house trained, and uses the doggy door like a champ. GiGi is super vocal, and loves to talk to you when she wants something. She loves to cuddle up next to her human, and asks for belly rubs all the time, which will get her into a really loud snoring sleep! Having toys are a must. She carries one around all over the house, and will use it as a pacifier to help her go to sleep. GiGi is heartworm negative. She's on drops for her dry eye, and is getting coconut oil every night for some itchy skin. She is the most perfect pug, with the absolute cutest little pug body, complete with multiple fat rolls!

GregPH ID: #5152
Sweet boy Greg comes to PugHearts dealing with severe bladder issues. He has been rushed to the vet clinic and we will update soon.

HarleyPH ID: #5049
Harley is a 13 yr old owner surrender.

He is heartworm negative and already neutered.

HollyPH ID: #5009
Holly is a 12 yr old female. She comes to PugHearts after her owner passed away and there was no one to care for her.

She is bonded to her brother Toby (8 yrs old).

She is definitely the bossy one of the pair and loves to have all the attention.

She is heartworm negative and spayed.

From Holly (with some help from her foster): Hey yall, Holly here, I'm Looking for my forever home and I am ready to go. My brother and I were left at a kennel after out person passed away. We were loved and cared for. I'm about 11 years old. and weigh about 16 lbs. Foster mom say I am a coppery color, I stand out in the crowd. I am house broke and have learned how to go in and out the dog door. I will play with toys from time to time, but I do like my naps. I am fine the other pugs, Cat , and kids . I like to cuddle next to you. I do love my brother and he follows me where I go If I go out the dog door he follows and I follow him if he goes out. I love my brother. We must be adopted together.

JamesonPH ID: #5089
Jameson was found out and about all alone. He is severe heartworm positive and will have to go through treatment prior to adoption.

From Jameson's foster: Jameson is a sweet one year old pug. He is a real fighter and has overcome a lot in only a short year of life so far. He is a joy to be around. He loves people and loves to cuddle. Jameson does well with other dogs and has recently learned how to play tug of war with his beloved stuffed toys. Although he likes other dogs, I think he would be ok as an only dog. He is fun and gentle and does well with kids. He is fully potty trained and does not mark inside!! Jameson takes direction well, especially for still being a puppy. He is not as high energy as other pug puppies can be. He likes to play, but settles down quickly and does not disturb the other dogs (and people) when they're trying to rest.

He likes to play with toys, including his bed which he shakes until he’s ready to sleep in it. Jeremiah has a good appetite. He loves to go on walks and follows his foster mom around the house.

He is shy at first and slow to make friends. He is getting used to his foster brothers and starting to share. He would be good as an only dog or with a dog that will let him be the boss. Come meet this little fellow at a PugHearts Event.

KingPH ID: #4459
King is a 12 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.

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 12, 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.

KodaPH ID: #4993

From Koda (with some help from his foster): Hi! I'm Koda! I am somewhere between 7 and 8years old. (I quit counting past 3!) People call me handsome, and who am I to argue? I have a very unique marking in my forehead... Go ahead, take a look..see it? Kinda funny huh?! My foster dad calls me Butkiss! I think it's funny and so I don't mind so much. I ama healthy, good boy-I know to potty outside. I am ok with staying in a crate during the day, but I'd rather sleep in the big bed if possible! I'm a really good cuddler. I'm in a house full of puggies and I don't mind them, and I don't mind the cats either. I'm a pretty easy going guy. I would love to have a family to call my own-is it you?

Lance is a young male from the Rio Grande Valley.

From Lance's foster: Meet Foster Lance. He is an energetic boy who is about two years old who is ready to find his forever home. He has been neutered, has had his shots, and is Heart-worm negative.

This little bundle of energy is always on the go. He loves to play with humans, other dogs, and toys. He is always walking around the house with a toy or chew bone in his mouth, he loves and craves interaction. If he isn’t playing with you, he wants to be by you or on you, in your lap or napping beside you. He also gives wonderful hugs and kisses.

When we brought him into our home, he immediately started interacting with his surrounding and the other pugs. He wasn’t potty trained but after a few weeks of learning the schedule and rules of the house, he now doesn’t have accidents in the house and doesn’t need a belly band. He is a very fast learner and very attentive.

Lance does have issues with dry eye. He needs eye drops twice a day and will need them for the rest of his life. He was terribly skinny when we started fostering him but he is slowly starting to add a little weight. He still needs a bit more weight added, he is very muscular and fit. He has wonderful markings and a beautiful coat and can be quite a clown at times.

Lance would be a nice fit for an active family or with someone who will give him the attention he craves. He is an amazing, happy, beautiful boy who just wants a lot of love and affection.

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.

If you need love in your life Lincoln is your man. He is neutered and HW-and loves to eat (he was so skinny but he is at his ideal weight of 20 lbs.) If you can’t find him he is in the kitchen as that is his favorite room.

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

From Louise's foster: Louise is a very sweet, 7 year old, owner surrender. She is very timid, but she is starting to come out of her shell. She is very happy with any attention she receives, and she loves to be with her human. It is rare when she has "accidents" in the house. She gets along well with my 2 male pugs. Because she is very shy, I think she would do better in a home without young children. She is starting to take treats out of my hand, and is not food aggressive. She is very loving and sleeps in the bed with me. I have not seen her play with any toys, but I'm hoping she will develop an interest. She is a very laid back pug and will follow her human everywhere. Would she be a good fit for your family?

Madeleine is a black female. She is 12 years old.

From Madeleine's foster: As far as Madeleine is concerned 12 is the new 6! Her energy level rivals a much younger dog and she loves toys, chase, and to gently wrestle. Her vision is good, but she's a little hard of hearing. This tiny girl gets along well with her foster brothers and sister. She is a little territorial of her food, but based on her size, it doesn't seem like she has been fed enough in the past. She's always hungry! You do have to keep a close eye on her, because she tries to run out the door if you're not careful, but we're working on that. She is house trained, but probably needs frequent potty breaks (a doggy door with a well secured fence would be ideal). She loves to stretch out on a fluffy dog bed and watch us or take quiet naps. She's a sweet girl, small and spunky and she's going to make some family very happy. This salt and pepper angel deserves a soft, safe place to lay her head every night. She's heartworm negative and ready join your family today!

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.

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.

Ms PPH ID: #1093
Ms P is a 7 yr old black female. She is heartworm negative and blind.

From her foster: She is starting to respond when she's called or hears me clapping for her (to give her a direction). She's figured out where the water dish is and if she hears the bowls clink for food she finds the kitchen without any help. She is a real chow hound and she's not super happy about what she must consider a small portion but it is the same amount the other gals get.

She'll give you a couple of kisses when you scratch her back and she will sit on the foot stool next to my leg. In other words she's starting to be more comfortable in the new surroundings. She's stubborn, as most pugs are, and seems to have a small bladder as she piddles each time she is outside but can't hold it all night.

She knows the command to "stay" and is walking more. I try to make sure she gets more exercise but I don't want to push her until she is able to physically move easier. She walks rather stiffly but with continued exercise she may limber up.

Special Notes

Ms P is a permanent foster and will be cared for in her foster home until it is time for her to cross the Rainbow Bridge

Rocco is a gorgeous guy with lots of skin and wrinkles, as well as a plushy soft coat. His head feels like mink. He is a pretty laid back boy who prefers to live with dogs more his age and energy level. He currently lives with 3 dogs and a cat. Younger , more energetic dogs bring out the "boss dog" in him and he feels he has to settle everyone down.

He loves to sit close to me on the sofa or on the floor with his head resting on my foot. He loves stuffed toys that do not have a squeaker and enjoys the occasional tug of war otherwise he is calm.

He is beautifully housebroken and knows how to use the doggie door.

I do take him for 2 walks a day. His hips are a little arthritic but since we started on glucosamine he is more active and enjoys his walks, even breaking into a trot. Rocco likes to meet people when we are out walking.

One of his cutest habits which has earned him the title Rockstar is making his soft woo woos. He woo woos when he is excited. It is a sweet sound.

SamPH ID: #4573
Sam is an imposter. He is not a Pug and not even a Chug. He is 100% pure Chihuahua in both actions and physical appearance. He weighs in at less than 5 pounds and is a little smaller than a Guinea pig. He is 12 years old and spent the first 12 years of his life confined to a crate or a small patch of dirt…. outside. Sam is very timid and scares easily. He will snap out of fear but never from aggression (and his mouth is too small to bite anyway). Sam is terrified of other dogs and is on my lap or on the couch with me at all times, he hates being on the floor with the other fosters. He will not drink water while any of the others are even close to the water bowl. He is food aggressive and I feed him in his crate so he’s not worried someone will steal his food.

With all of that being said, Sam is the sweetest, most loving little guy I have ever had! As with most Chi’s, he’s a one person guy. He adores me and is constantly cuddled up to my chin. He loves to be kissed and will push his little head to my mouth if I stop before he wants me to. He loves to be pet and he also likes to play. He will pounce on his tiny front feet and start growling and wagging his tail and he will attack my hand and just growl and snarl. He’s so darn cute there just aren’t words to describe him. He loves to sleep with me and is an expert at cuddling. I lost quite a bit of sleep at first because I was concerned that I was going to roll over on him and hurt him.

Sam is my very special Little Man. He is so tiny and vulnerable that he needs to always have someone to protect and take care of him. I made him a promise that he would always be taken care of and he would never be cold, lonely or unloved again. If you think you may be able to keep that promise to him, you just may be who he needs.

SpikePH ID: #4935
Spike is an 13 year old senior male. He is bonded to his sister Layla (also 13 yrs old). They are both heartworm negative and in good health.

From Spike's foster: Spike is a 13 year old distinguished gentleman who is bonded to his sister Layla. They are from the same litter. His owners painfully surrendered them when they were transferred abroad and couldn't take them along. He loves to be near his human, but does not require to be held. He is low key and low maintenance when it comes to keeping him entertained. He lost his left eye due to an injury several years ago and has now developed a cataract (in his right eye) that limits his vision. However, his impaired vision does not keep him from enjoying long naps nor his daily walks at dusk. When he tires from walking - he enjoys a free ride on his stroller with his sister. They are quite the pair!! Spike is hard of hearing, but he doesn't seem to mind since this makes for more uninterrupted naps! He has dry eye and requires daily ointment to it. Thankfully, he is heartworm negative and loves his Heartguard!! He's a good eater!! He is a great quiet companion that is happy with the simple things in life. He would be happiest in a home without too much traffic and a serene environment. As a bonus with a senior, he is potty trained and knows how to use a doggie door!

Hi, I’m Suzie! I was at a shelter in Louisiana but now I’m here in beautiful Texas. I’m an awesome 8 year old puppy that would make a great pet for a first time mommy or daddy or a seasoned owner. I’m cute and I love treats. I even go potty outside. I get along with big dogs and little dogs. I’m super happy to see you when you get home. I love to cuddle and I have a sweet sounding snore. I love to give you kisses. I was told I’m positive for heart worms but my fosters are treating them now and things are going great. I also have been spayed. All in all I’m the best doggie here. Adopt me!

TaraPH ID: #5057
Tara is a 5 yr old black female. She is an owner surrender and is heartworm negative.

From Tara's foster: Meet Tara, she is a five year old female owner surrender. Although she is 5, she plays like a much younger pug. She is a huge fan of "pug eggs". She has two currently, and one is in her possession 99% of the time, and she lets us know when she has lost the pug egg under the furniture. She also likes to chew on bones and other toys. She is completely house trained and crate trained and has never had an accident. Tara has learned our routines quickly, she gets in the kennel on her own when I leave for work. In her time at our house, she has quickly learned to be a "velcro pug". She follows me everywhere. As she has become more comfortable she is learning to snuggle and sit with us on the couch and even has started to be relaxed enough to roll over for a belly rub. She is an Alpha female, and this causes some issues with my two pugs, but she is getting much better with being a part of the grumble and going with the flow.

TashaPH ID: #4400
Tasha is a 12 year old fawn female. She is heartworm negative and looking for a place to call her own.

From Tasha (with some help from her foster): Hello, I am Tasha Louise and I am a vintage gall believed to be about twelve years old. Please do not let that number scare you. l I am the most active pug in my foster home. I love to talk and run around my backyard. I also get along with the hunting dog in the house. I love my foster mom, but I really prefer the older gentleman in the house. He is my best love. I come to you in good health, potty trained and ready to give my forever home lots of love. P.S, I talk a lot, not bark-- I talk.

From Tasha's foster: Tasha is quite simply the perfect pug! She is housebroken, nonagressive, gets along with the other dogs and cats in the house, and loves her nightly walks. She is the most active senior I know. Tasha sleeps in bed with her foster mom.

If you're looking for a adorable, loving, mature dog, that is housebroken, trained, and has no behavior issues then Tasha is your girl!

TessaPH ID: #5080
Tessa is a sweet pug mix from a local shelter.

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

From Tessa's foster: Meet Foster Tessa!!!

This girl loves to play, especially with other dogs! She’s a fun-loving bundle of energy who also loves to snuggle and be loved on. She cracks us up, especially when she shows her funny teeth or walks on her back legs because she wants something. A pug mix, we think she’s a chug (part pug/part Chihuahua) and she has the cutest pug curly tail. Her perfect day is spending some time playing, spending some time exploring outside, and spending some time cuddling.

She’s working on potty training but is not there yet and usually wears a diaper in the house just in case. She’s crate trained and will stay in a crate when no one is home or otherwise if needed. She gets along well with other dogs.

We think she lived on the streets before coming to Pug Hearts and has never lived with a family before. She can be cautious around new people and on walks.

Tessa is about one year old and is fixed. She’ll go through heartworm treatment starting in January and will be available for adoption after that.

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?

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

TyPH ID: #4940
Ty is an 11 year old male. He was surrendered to PugHearts with his sister Tyra due to changes in the household. He is heartworm negative.

From Ty (with some help from his foster): My name is Ty. I am 10-11 yrs. young. You wouldn't know I was this old because I love to run and go on long walks with my foster mom and foster sister. I am potty trained and I'm an expert at using a doggie door. I will make a big fuss when you come home from work or from being away from home, but quickly settle down and be your bestie! I know my name well and will mind you when you call me. My vision and hearing are in good working order. I get along well with others and I'm not a picky eater. My foster mom tells people that I'm a 'mellow fellow' and that she enjoys my happy disposition. I really like her, but would love to have a home of my very own and a human that will love me unconditionally like I will! If anyone is interested, ask for me by name and I will pencil you in after my daily nap. Hope to hear from you soon! Ty

VitoPH ID: #5072
Vito is a hunk of pug made for cuddling.

From Vito (with some help from his foster Mom): Hi, I’m Vito, good to meet ‘cha. I’m a 5 year old hunk of a dude, well, that’s what my foster mom says anyway. I’m a big – let me be clear, I’m not over weight, I’m just a husky sized kind of pug. Big paws, big heart don’t ya know? Let me tell ya a little bit about myself. I was rescued off the streets a few months ago, and man, I’m glad that they did. I have had a pretty bad case of heartworms and life was getting pretty tough. Even though I have been feeling kinda cruddy off and on, I feel like I’ve hit the jackpot! I’m now living inside, have some new friends, good food, and I love my foster mom. I follow her wherever she goes, because I just want to watch out for her, you know, cuz she watches out for me. I’m a pretty chill dude, I like to just hang out with my humans. I get along pretty well with my foster brothers and sisters, but I can get a little ornery when food is involved. No big deal – foster mom just feeds me away from the others. I’ll get the hang of it soon, and plus – I have A LOT of brothers and sisters. I think if I had fewer, I wouldn’t care so much. As far as the bathroom thing – got that down. I know I’m supposed to go outside, and if I have to go, I just go sit by the door. I have my own “house” in my house, and I don’t mind it a bit since I like to just chill anyway. I don’t mind sleeping in it, or in the big bed with my humans. Either works! Cats? Well, I like to bark at them some times, but I don’t actually want to hurt them. I have some of those at my foster home too, no big deal. Other than that, what can I say? I’ve been told I’m super handsome and cuddly – but I don’t let that go to my head. I’ve been feeling a lot better lately, and once I finish heartworm treatment, I’m going to feel GREAT and I’ll be ready for my own forever home! Come meet me at an adoption event soon!

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

WhiskyPH ID: #1011
Whisky (aka Quinn) is an 8 year old fawn male who was surrendered to Pug Hearts from a loving owner. In addition to being quite handsome, Whisky is a very well-behaved boy. He gets along with other dogs and loves kids.

He is house broken, but sometimes marks if left alone in the house for too long.

His favorite things are food, people and belly rubs. Also known to attack his sworn enemy: the vacuum cleaner.

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 12 year old male HW negative, already neutered, has skin infection, ear infection, dry eye. He is being treated and will soon feel better.

From Yoda's foster: Mr. Yoda is a 12 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. Yoda has severe dry eye and requires medicated drops twice a day and lubricating drops during the day as needed. His vision is impaired because of the dry eye. He also has that darkened skin from neglect and gets itchy at times. He is totally housetrained. He is crate trained. He sleeps with us and is a great bed sleeper, staying in one place all night long. Due to his bad vision, he won’t jump off the bed, you will have to lift him (which we don’t mind doing for this sweet boy). 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.
