AllisterPH ID: #5598
Allister is a good looking guy that comes to us from a shelter in Texas. Where do I begin, Welcome foster Allister, the chubbiest pug with the shortest legs I have ever seen. He is a really good boy whose looks just make me chuckle. He will be acquainted with the green bean diet to lose some weight.

Sadly, this hunk of pug is heartworm positive and will have to go through heartworm treatment prior to adoption.

AtlasPH ID: #5627
Atlas comes to PugHearts with the weight of the world on his small shoulders. He is about a year old and was taken to a local kill shelter by his owner.

Happily, we are here to help and the shelter contacted us right away. His eye is severely damaged and was not cared for immediately. We are doing our best, but he may lose the eye anyway.

We will keep everyone posted.

AuroraPH ID: #5632
Aurora is a young fawn female that has already had too many litters of puppies.....but NO MORE!

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

From Austin's foster: Meet Foster Austin!!! Austin is an adorable 8 year old male pug who was found wandering the streets in Katy. Austin’s perfect day is going for walks, snuggling with his human and tossing a ball or a stuffed animal around like a puppy.

He’s potty trained and crate trained. He gets along with children and the other dogs in his foster home but can be aggressive at feeding time. Austin is heartworm positive and will be available for adoption after he completes treatment. He takes a pill daily for arthritis. He won’t climb long flights of stairs but will happily let you carry him up or will wait for you at the bottom with his curly tail wagging.

Austin has completed his heartworm treatment!

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

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

BambiPH ID: #4907
Bambi is an 11 yr old pug mix. She is heartworm negative and spayed.

She is scared and needs a quieter home with other dogs to help her feel more confident.

From Bambi's foster: Greetings, my name is Bambi. We lost our loving home when our owner suddenly passed away.

I am a beautiful Pug/Brussels Griffon southern girl that has impeccable manners. I am beautifully house-trained, crate trained and also dog friendly. I enjoy sniffing around the yard, occasional sunbathing, rolling in the plush green grass, sleeping on the couch and I loves treats too! I am not much for for toys or playing, but more the timid, loving, gentle wall flower type personality. I would flourish in a less active, calm home with someone who is home most of the time. I currently do not share a home with children and the hustle and bustle of children would be to much for me.

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

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

BarryPH ID: #5563
Barry is a 7 year old handsome man that takes his time on everything he does, except eating!

He loves to cuddle and follow you everywhere. Barry is one of the sweetest boys around. His family is going to be so lucky to have this guy!

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

BenedictPH ID: #5605
Benedict (Benny) is a Black male pug. He is kinda skittish especially towards males. But we’re working on that. It seems that he was keep out side tied up for most of his life witch is the result of severe skin irritation with loss of a lot of his chest hair and spots in other places. We’re working on that as well. The good news is, he is Neutered and HEARTWORM negative.

From his Fosters: Benny is a lively soul, he has the energy level of a full Puppy yet He still loves his cuddle time and sleeps in the bed with us. He is real close on potty trained and manners. He loves to play with toys and other pugs. He is crate trained but will whine at first but quickly settles down. He would be best with a brother or sister but could be curved if needed. He will be difficult to se go.

BerthaPH ID: #5430
Bertha is a 9 year old fawn female.

She is heartworm negative and dealing with a bladder infection.

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

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

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

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

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

Big KahunaPH ID: #5529

Meet The Big Kahuna.

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

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

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

Despite all of this, he is sweet and cuddly.

He will be worth the wait!

Congrsats to Megan!

BoydPH ID: #5595
Foster Boyd is the epitome of a Velcro pug. He loves to lay in between your feet when you watch TV and follow you around the house to help with anything you need. He has perfect straight teeth and a cinnamon roll tail. He hasn’t had any accidents in the house and we are in the process of crate training. He does get anxious when you leave the room, but he does better in the crate when he has the company of his foster brother and sister.

He is will be available after his heart worm treatment.

BrockPH ID: #5615
Brock is a young man that comes to PugHearts with an injury to his rear leg.

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

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

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

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

BumblePH ID: #5616
Bumble comes to PugHearts with her sister Bee.

Everyone is buzzing about them....are they meant for your beehive?

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

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

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

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

Caitlyn came to us in the summertime from Oklahoma. She is about 4 yrs old, heartworm negative, up-to-date on her vaccinations and spayed. This sweet dog has seen some physical and emotional abuse in her short life. She had broken bones in the past, severe dry eye and now has limited vision and has developed arthritis. We are making great strides on her trust issues and she has discovered that body and tummy rubs are a good thing. We are also working on house training, but it's hard to house train when a dog doesn't trust just yet.

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

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

CarsonPH ID: #5603
Carson is a 9 year old black male found wandering int he rain all alone.

He is heartworm negative and scheduled for his neuter.

This spunky chap is just waiting to find someone to have many adventures with.

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

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

CookiePH ID: #5608
Cookie is a 5-6 yr old heartworm negative fawn female.

DaniellePH ID: #5625
Danielle is a rare gem in the rescue world. She is young, adorable, heartworm negative and spayed.

DeedeePH ID: #4754
Our newest senior is little DeeDee. She is 10-11 years old, and is battling some severe arthritis in her elbows. We are trying to see what we can do to improve her life at the moment. Sadly, we may not be able to, but you all know Pughearts well enough that we will do all we can to help her. We love her so much already, even just after 6 days. She will have the best life ever for however long God lets us keep her :)

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

We are betting everyone will want dibs on Dibs

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

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

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

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

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

DobbyPH ID: #5637
Dobby comes to us from Mississippi

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

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

EvelynPH ID: #4679
Evelyn is an older southern lady that comes to us with her friend Ernest.

Evelyn is a 9 year old white female. She is sassy, adorable and has a terrible collapsing trachea. Evelyn uses her cough to her foster Dad to baby her and it works well. She is 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)

EzraPH ID: #5599
Ezra is a 7 year old severe heartworm positive male. Ezra is 7 years young. He always seems to have s smile on his face and pep in his step. When he walks he looks like he has purpose, like he has somewhere to be, and the fun won't start until he arrives. He was found as a stray and is looking for a home that will let him be the sweet, silly, independent boy that he is. He's more of a dog's dog and would probably do best with siblings. He likes kids, does well in the crate, is house trained, and loves food but doesn't beg. If you're looking for a dog that makes you smile, he might be the right one for you. Medically, he will have a small growth removed and a dental cleaning soon, and he has heartworms, and will go through treatment soon.

FanniePH ID: #5565

He is heartworm negative and neutered.

The dapper gentleman would love a warm, loving home to spend his golden years loving and being loved.

GidgetPH ID: #5551
Gidget is a very loving and playful 4 year old female that is heartworm positive. She loves to cuddle at night in the big bed but is also comfortable in her kennel when we are gone. Gidget is potty trained and she gets along with all of our grumble.

Don’t let the heartworm positive status keep you from considering this little girl, she will steal your heart when you meet her. She wants nothing more than to be loved and gives that love in return.

Don’t pass her by.

He is respectful of other dogs, but will play once he's comfortable. Loves all treats, chews & food. Likes walks, giving kisses & of course snuggling.

I have had a very rough start at life. I am yearning for love and affection and will need your soft voice to guide me with training. Want to know more about me? Just ask!

JaxPH ID: #5432
Jax is a 7 year old fawn male. He lost an eye when he was young and is totally blind in the other eye. He is otherwise a healthy happy boy. When he first entered his foster home, he paced for about 3 days. He was mapping the furniture. Now he gets around with little effort. He explores the back yard and finds his way back to the back door. He would not do well with someone who likes to move their furniture all the time. He has a good appetite and goes straight to the kennel when you say kennel. He will also find his way onto the sofa, even the back of it, by himself. He will not jump off however and will whimper to let you know he would like to get off. He gets along with other dogs. I think he would like a home with at least one other dog to help him feel secure. Give this amazing blind boy a chance. One last word, he will NOT do well around a pool and/or other open bodies of water.

JdPH ID: #5186
JD is a senior gentleman looking for a place to call him own.

From JD's foster: JD is a handsome senior boy at 10 years old. He is completely housebroken and healthy, other than some typical older gentleman kind of issues (aka a little stiff in the bones, and a little dry eye :). He lives with other dogs and cats peacefully, and really just would like a good soft place to snuggle with his human! This sweet little boy will steal your heart! Will you be his forever home?

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

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

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

JediPH ID: #5305
Jedi is a 12-year old who has had a remarkable recovery from surgery to alleviate pain from a pinched nerve. He has chronic disc bulges and some issues that may never fully resolve, but that should not interfere with his everyday life. Jedi has a most engaging look and will follow you around. He has no problem with other dogs and cats in his foster home. Jedi enjoys going outside for sunbathing and rolls in the grass. He is a gentle soul who just wants to please and to be a companion.

LaylaPH ID: #4936
Layla is an 13 year old senior female. She is bonded to her brother Spike (also 13 yrs old). They are both heartworm negative and in good health.

From Layla's foster: Layla is a 13 yr old, young at heart female who is bonded to Spike (her brother is from the same litter). She is heart worm negative and has an old fracture to her right front elbow that was not attended to properly when weeks old. This hardly slows her down! She loves to run and do zoomies in the back yard and inside the house. She is a joy to have around. She's a feisty girl that only has eyes for her human. She is extremely smart. She learned to use a doggie door in no time at all. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?? She's potty trained and loves to play with plush toys. She does tire easily, but enjoys a free ride on her stroller with her brother Spike. They are a sight to behold! Her eyesight and hearing are intact. She has a very sweet disposition and enjoys frequent belly rubs. You will fall in love with her antics right away as she is cute as a button with her huge brown eyes. Like her brother, Layla does not enjoy being held for long periods, but loves her alone time with her human. Love this little gal!!

LettiePH ID: #5544
Sweet Lettie was found wandering all alone. She is, sadly, severe heartworm positive and will have to go through heartworm treatment prior to adoption.

Lettie in a tiny bundle of wiggly love! She's 7 and full grown, but bounces around the house (and furniture) like she's much younger. She enjoys a good wrestle match or just snuggling up to the other dogs. She'll also settle in for a long Sunday afternoon nap snuggled on a human lap. Now that she feels safe and secure, her sassy personality is starting to show. She is smart and highly food motivated so she's learning words and commands super fast. Don't let this cute little love bug get away!

LilaPH ID: #5183
Lila is a 4 yr old female that comes to PugHearts after being found wandering all alone.

She appears to have some problems with her back legs and is being monitored by the vet. Lila is, happily, heartworm negative.

From Lila's foster: Meet Lila - our gorgeous Lila!! She is a very happy, healthy 4yr old that loves to play and cuddle and run - everywhere she goes!!

Lila is a special needs pug that has some neurological issues with her back legs. We are not sure if this is due to an injury or birth - be please do not let this deter you from adopting her!! She does not let this slow her down one bit!! The biggest issue is elimations, as she is not always aware of pooping. Lila does squat to urinate, but then hops about 3ft while going. If she is leashed and you hold her, she will finish then move on. She will also stand up when asked!

This sweet girl is a treasure and we are hoping that someone will give her a chance at a family - she deserves her own family and loves with her whole heart!!

I am sight impaired but I can see light and dark. I do require eye drops 2 to 3 times a day to help with my dry eyes. I also take Rimadyl for my minor arthritis as needed, but I get around just fine. I also take Tobutrol for what they call a narrowing trachea which makes me cough from time to time. I do like to cuddle. I love my treats. I love green beans and carrots with my kibble. Foster mom also puts some coconut oil in out food several times a week. I love the taste of coconut. she gets that kind that is unprocessed or something like that, so it taste just like coconut. She also puts plain yogurt in out food too from time to time, boy that stuff is good. Did I mention I do love my treats? I will play tug-a-war if you put the toy to my mouth.

He is fully house trained, sitting at the back door when he needs to go out and sitting back at the door when he is ready to come inside.

BONUS! Malcolm has a beautiful black coat that doesn’t shed as much as the average pug!

Because of his diabetes, he needs twice daily injections, which are a breeze to give him! He sits politely as you give it to him. He also needs once daily eye drops for dry eyes. Once his diabetes is stable and his dental work is done, he will be ready for his forever home.

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.

My name is Sprite and I am a sweet tiny 13 year old gal. Like a typical elderly gal, I spend most of my day napping. I do not hear or see well but I can sniff about and figure out how to get around. I bark to let my fosters know I need a bathroom break and they always carry me out and back in. I am good with kids - my current fosters have a 2 year old and she likes to pet me (she is gentle and calls me Grandma Dog). If you are looking for someone who will sit happily next to you while you Netflix and chill, I am your gal!

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

SybilPH ID: #5638
Sybil comes to us from Mississippi

TaftPH ID: #5641
Taft wants to personally thank that ladies that alerted PugHearts to him and a special thanks to Laura for catching him.

Taft, named for his weighty goal, President William Howard Taft, was literally trapped in the wild, after a Good Samaritan alerted PugHearts, and skilled volunteers worked cleverly to nab him. He'd been living in a ditch (yes really), surviving the heat, the rain, the dark, and multiple major roadways. He was elusive and took time, but now lives the indoor dream.

He is a tiny, 12 pound, 4 year old, black and white pug with unique white tuxedo chest and speckled matching 'gloves'. He is very active and cheerful and loves my other pugs. He will need strong guidance from all his new family members with regard to potty and house manners. He likely has never lived inside; never seen a toy; never had any consistency or training. He is simply electric when given attention and flops around like a fish with excitement. PugHearts will spare no expense in restoring him to health. We've already covered the happy.

He has an underdeveloped eye, but does see; his August neuter set. Sadly (but expectedly), he is severe heart worm positive and quite malnourished, so will not be adoptable until Oct/Nov. This quirky, adorable, hard luck gent will get chosen fast, so get your app in now and follow his frequent updates on PugHearts' Facebook page.

Teddy BearPH ID: #5596

We are not sure exactly what mix of breeds this little angel is, but he does have a little wrinkled face. He is very playful and extremely sweet. He eats well and is learning to potty outside. He plays well with the other dogs and LOVES toys. He pulls them into his open crate and sleeps among them. This little guy runs with the big dogs when they go outside to play. He is really a good puppy.

TessPH ID: #5501
Sweet Tess is an 11 year old female with spinal issues. She was surrendered due to changes in her family. She is being evaluated by the vet and we will update soon.

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

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

We are still acquainting, but I assess:

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

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

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

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?



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

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

TumblePH ID: #4878
Tumble is a 7 yr old female better known as Tummy or Tum Tum.

She is heartworm negative and already spayed.

From Tumble's foster: Tumble is a special needs foster, not due to health issues (as she is VERY HEALTHY), but due to fear and trust issues.

Tumble comes to PugHearts scared of everything. She does not trust men at all and will bark and bark to let them know to go away.

She will trust women and is the sweetest, gentlest, loving girl once you earn her trust.

I love and adore Tumble. Tumble and my husband....not so much.

Tumble is looking for a patient lady that is willing to go slowly and allow Tumble to trust you completely.

She is housebroken, heartworm negative, kennels on command and wags her whole body when she is happy to see you.

Tumble is learning to trust my husband through food. She is a typical pug and food is her motivator.

I know there is a perfect home out there for her....it is just going to take time and patience to find it......just like it will take time and patience for Tumble to trust a forever family.

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

Timid, quiet, sweet, loving are all words to describe Valerie. She hasn't been properly cared for in the past, but is now enjoying being loved on and is building self confidence. We are working on helping her overcome her aversion to grass. She won't walk on it unless she's forced, but we're working on it. She gets along well with other dogs, kids, and doesn't mind getting kenneled. Medically, she has dry eye, which require daily drops, will have soft palette surgery to help her breathe easier, and she's heartworm positive, but will go through treatment in August. Valerie has gone through a tough beginning in her 5 years, but she is ready for the right forever home to give her a fairy tale ending.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Special Notes

Vivian has hydrocephalus and consequently has neurological issues

WhitneyPH ID: #5392
Whitney is a black female pug. She comes to PugHearts looking for a home with no cats. See, she likes to chase and catch them....so better for the cats if there are none at her home.

Whitney is a beautiful energetic 1 year old little girl, who is heartworm negative. She is your typical 1 year old, she loves to play and her chew toys. She get along great with our grumble but does not get along with cats. We are working on the potty training but she is very smart little girl and shouldn’t take long. It only took her a day to learn the doggy door. She finds her kennel a safe zone and sleeps through the night without accidents.

She will be a great addition to your family.

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

Wilson is only 4 years old, severe heartworm positive and dealing with old injuries that are causing his hips and back to be sore and weak.

From Wilson's foster: Wilson is a love muffin! Wilson was timid and frightened when he first came to live here, but he has relaxed and is much more secure and happy! He is 4yrs old, crate trained, neutered, mostly house trained, loves to sit with his humans, and gets along with all the dogs in the house. I am sure he would be great with children as he is so gentle.

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

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

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

Foster Wrigley is a 2 year old neutered male. He is Heartworm positive and is preparing for his treatment in a couple of months. He was treated for sarcopic Mange as soon as he was rescued. Although he gets along with other dogs, he prefers to sit by his human’s side, play fetch, or play with his toys alone. Wrigley is being potty trained at the moment and is doing a great job with only a few accidents here and there. His legs were a little weak in the beginning but he is slowly regaining his strength and can now jump to the couch with no issues. This boy definitely has some character and is such a joy to foster!

ZekePH ID: #5624
Zeke is a 4 month old pug mix. He comes to PugHearts with a cherry eye that will be repaired.
