AltonPH ID: #6029
Hello Everyone! My name is Alton. I don’t know much about my life before being rescued by PugHearts other than I was picked up as a stray in Louisiana and taken to a high kill shelter. Thank goodness for PugHearts, they tagged me for rescue and I was out of there within an hour!

I traveled with some nice lady to her house for a few days and then on to another ladies house in Houston for a couple more days until I could be seen by our wonderful PugHearts vet Dr. Hendrix. The ladies that kept me said that I have an old soul whatever that means because I was so calm and relaxed. Dr. Hendrix says I am about 4 years old, have nasty heartworms and I can’t breath too well right now cause I need my soft pallet fixed, not sure what that all involves other than I know I will soon be able to breath much better. Now back to that old soul business, I’m now living with my foster family and I’m not sure about being an old soul, foster Mom called it my honeymoon phase, cause I like to make zoomies and run all around the house, I LOVE chewing on Nylabones, and rough housing with my foster siblings. I do get to sleep in the big bed with everyone and I love to cuddle up next to my human or next to one of my foster sibs.

I won’t be ready for adoption for quite some time because I have to get rid of the those nasty heartworms first, but if you want to follow me along on my journey, you can find foster Mom posting about me on the PugHearts Facebook page.

AugustusPH ID: #6040
Meet Augustus. He is about 9 yrs old.

He comes to PugHearts with an injury to his front foot that turned out to be a tumor. Sadly, the tumor was so severe that he lost his leg.

Augustus is heartworm negative and was obviously loved before he found himself in a shelter.

He is learning to move around with 3 legs, but that does not stop him from ALWAYS wanting to be near his person.

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

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

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

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

BambiPH ID: #6135
Bambi is the girl half of the bonded pair of 18 month old mixes, Bambi & Thumper. They are the best of friends and crate quietly together. They have long, silky apricot coats and curled tails, though Thumper's is more tightly curled. Both very friendly and love to play in the yard. They are fostered together and will be adopted together. Who needs a pair of darling his and her Christmas bookends?! They are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, perfectly healthy, and ready now!!

BarryPH ID: #6021
Barry Cute. Barry Sweet. Barry Happy!

Sweetest 2 year old chug came to PugHearts when he was rescued from a local animal shelter, but they could not keep him. Their loss is your good luck! He is a sweet happy and healthy little boy.

Barry is heartworm negative and neutered

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

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

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

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

BethanyPH ID: #6059
Bethany is a 6 year old fawn female that was turned in to a shelter with a severe eye injury that had been left untreated for quite some time. Poor thing was in severe pain. Luckily the shelter called us immediately, and we had her eye removed, with pain medications and antibiotics administered within days. Bethany is a total sweetheart. She is tiny, weighing in at only 13 lbs. She gets along fine with other dogs and children, but would be perfectly OK with being the only child. She wants nothing more than to be napping in your lap, and loves sleeping on the pillow next to her person in the big bed at night. Perfect pug kisses are Bethany’s specialty. If you are looking for a Velcro-Pug, she is definitely your girl. Bethany spins in circles, barking and whining whenever she’s excited, and it really is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. Unfortunately Bethany came to PugHearts Heartworm Positive, so she will not be ready for her forever home until December, but don’t wait to get your applications in. This little girl will not last long!

Bette MidlerPH ID: #6133
Introducing The Divine Miss M - BETTE MIDLER!!! She is a spunky, beautiful girl who has had her share of medical woes. She came to PugHearts recently, by way of a shelter, followed by Friends of the Animals in Baton Rouge. Bette Midler now lives in Lake Charles.

Bette is a Hospice patient who has severe heart worms, a malignant growth in her mouth, an old injury/fractured pelvis, collapsed trachea, pneumonitis and on and on. She obviously did not get the memo because she is frisky, happy, and always on the move. Her specialty is being so darn cute. She is also a professional beggar.

Bette Midler will live out her life with her brothers Walter Roo Roo and Galileo along with her doting caregivers.

Please say a prayer for this happy, vibrant pug who has no clue she is ill.

Betty AnnPH ID: #6023
Betty Ann is a chug, surrendered through no fault of her own. While Betty Ann was frightened of everything when she first came to us, she has blossomed into a loving little lap dog. She loves her people and she does well with dogs and loves to play with them! Betty Ann is 7 years old and heartworm negative. She loves to sleep next to her human, crates well and has excellent potty habits. Betty Ann is a little gem. Please consider her for your family!

BorisPH ID: #6111
Full Description Coming Soon!

BradleyPH ID: #6148
Bradley is a 7 year old apricot fawn male who came to us from the Rio Grande Valley missing an eye (winky), underweight, with severe heart worms. Despite all this, he's maintained the sweetest, quietest spirit. He is crate trained, and as yet has zero interest in toys or playing with other pugs. He's substantially vision impaired in his remaining eye, but gets around well and fearlessly. He'll be neutered late December, then endure the remainder of our heart worm treatment process. Look for him home ready Spring 2020. Meantime, follow his updates on our Facebook page as we get to know Brad better. So far, he's the silent, soulful type, who KNOWS TRICKS!! What a wonderful discovery this was today, day 2 in captivity.

Bradley, you were clearly someone's loved pet once. I give you my solemn promise you are again now, and will always be.

BrodiPH ID: #4665
Brodi is a 9 year old pug mix who returns to PugHearts through no fault of his own. Brodi is back with PugHearts because his owner could no longer care for him and loved him so much he wanted better for him. He is the sweetest dog ever. He loves to go on walks and to the dog park. He is a master snuggler who is house and crate trained.

Brodi would be perfectly happy as an only dog or in a house with a few others. Other than some grain allergies he is a happy healthy fabulous 9 year old dog. Please consider an application to adopt Brodi. He deserves a forever home of his own.

BurkePH ID: #6060
Foster Burke is an adorable two-year old boy who just wants to be loved and taken care of. He gets along with everyone, human or animal, and is nothing but sweet-natured. He is crate-trained and working on potty training. Burke was found wandering the Rio Grande Valley fending for himself. After heartworm treatment, he’ll be ready for adoption in January 2020.

ButtersPH ID: #6127
Sweet, amazing hunk of love Butters (or Mr. Butters how we like to call him) is a stunningly beautiful 13 year old pug. He definitely needs to lose some weight but other than that this boy is completely healthy!! He is crate trained, potty trained, has no food or toy aggression and honestly, all he wants is to be with you. He is a quiet boy until he gets around human food - he then promptly lets you know he does not appreciate being excluded from the feast. Butters needs to be neutered and has a dental scheduled for the beginning of December.

He charmed his forever family so much they took over fostering and will be adopting him as soon as he is medically cleared. Butters is the luckiest guy, honestly!

Candy CornPH ID: #4806
Candy Corn is a 9 yr old female. She was surrendered back to PugHearts with her friend Heath due to medical issues with their family..

This adorable pair are both bonded to each other.

They will only be adopted together.

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

ChasePH ID: #6095
This is Chase, a 2 year old fawn male, heartworm negative with no medical issues. Even though he is considered fawn color his fur has a tremendous amount of black mixed in, his has the most beautiful midnight black face. He is a large little man weighing in at 26 pounds with very long legs. He gets along with other pugs and even cats. He is not food aggressive in fact he will move out of the way if one of the others wants his food. He is crate trained and potty training is in progress. He loves to play with toys and loves to be by your side. He would be perfect in any home. If you are interested he is available now.

ChopperPH ID: #6155
Chopper is a fun loving energetic 4 year old. He loves to play with everyone. Loves kids of all ages. Gets a long with dogs of all sizes. Knows how to sit and loves meal time.

ChubbsPH ID: #6164
Hear ye, Hear Ye

Introducing Her Royal Highness, the Lady Ma Cherie Chubbs Bodine.

This stunning 9 yr old female was left in a shelter after her owner passed away. She has been well cared for and is very spoiled and looking for a home to allow her to continue to live in the manner she has become accustomed to.

Heartworm negative

Already spayed


And a perfect bed sleeper

~ All as you would expect from such a lady~

Cora BellePH ID: #5975
Hi everyone, I’m Cora Belle. I am around 6 years old or so. I'm a little lady. I am very cute, sweet and special. Yep, fell on my head and it causes me to tumble like a cheerleader, but I just get up and keep going. Hardwood and tile floors are hard for me and I look like I’m trying to learn to ice skate and fall a lot. Foster mom has rugs for me to walk to that help me. Don’t worry, it is just a little thing and meds aren’t needed except for the prevention ones. You should see me run the fence when I’m protecting the yard. I’m looking for a forever family that doesn’t mind a girl who stumbles. I love hugs and will be yours forever.

CordellPH ID: #6043
This guy! He was found as a stray, emaciated, mostly blind, tapeworms, HW+ but neutered. He is gaining weight and turning into a happy playful guy! He growls constantly, but with him it’s more like purring. He looks like he will eat off your hand but plays really gently! He and the other dogs are having a hard time acclimating to each other, so the quieter the house, the better for him. He is great with kids though. His sight has returned a little with daily eye drops (forever). He can see movement and shadows if it’s well lit. He can’t get around at all at night. He will run into everything. He is not quite crate or house trained but he is smart and will get it eventually. He is really a sweetheart that will do great in a no or maybe one dog house.

DaniPH ID: #6146
Dani is a 3-4 momth old female Fawn pug. She is full of love and full of life, your typical puppy. She loves to bark and lunge at the other pugs when she wants to play. She has a very healthy appetite and when she sees her food bowl, she runs to her crate, goes in and waits to eat. She is a runner and a jumper. She loves squeaky toys and hooves. She knows how to use the doggie door and is potty trained; either going outside to potty or using a pee pad.

DarbyPH ID: #6118
Darby is a 7 year old female that was surrendered out of love to PugHearts when her family was out of options for her treatment, and their Vet suggested euthanasia. Darby has Hypothyroidism and Diabetes. At her intake exam, Darby weighed in at 36 lbs, had severe skin lesions and hair loss, as well as chronic diarrhea. We have managed to stop the diarrhea, and control both her diabetes and hypothyroidism. She now weighs 28 lbs, has a beautiful thick coat of fur, and was healthy enough to have a dental. Darby currently takes 1/2 a thyroid tab twice daily, and it down to 5 units of insulin twice daily. She is on a strict diet of Hill’s Science Diet K/D food, which has helped manage her diabetes and control her weight. She has occasionally worn a FreeStyle Libre to help monitor her blood sugars and she amazes me every single day with her recovery and resilience. Unfortunately, Darby didn’t get to PugHearts before the unregulated diabetes took her eye site, but it doesn’t take her long to learn the routine and lay out of the house. Blind pugs are amazing and Darby is no different. She loves belly rubs, treats, and her dog bed. Being outside barking at the neighbors is her favorite exercise. She gets along great with other dogs, and giving her insulin injections are so easy. Who wants to open their home to this precious girl? You won’t be sorry.

DashPH ID: #6158
Full Description Coming Soon!

DesmondPH ID: #6078
This is Desmond. We don't know his history, other than he came from a shelter in Laredo still intact and extremely fearful. He's since been neutered, started Prozac for his anxiety & is working with one of the nurses at the vet who's working on her behavior certification.

He does wonderful in a home environment with someone he trusts. He acts like a spunky, playful 1 yr old; he knows sit, is learning to wait for food & we're working on down. Unfortunately he's very sensitive to any change in his environment; new dogs can be scary, but new people are the scariest. We'll never know if he was actual abused or just never properly socialized.

We will continue to work with him with socialization & to build his confidence. Hoping that the right person/family is out there for him. He loves learning new tricks/commands (it really helps his self confidence), he's very athletic and would love to be an agility dog.

DeviPH ID: #6116
Full Description Coming Soon!

DillyPH ID: #6112
Dilly is a gorgeous 6 year old pug who came to us with a bad case of sarcoptic mange causing the back 2/3 of his body to be mostly bare. He is healing beautifully and the fur is starting to fill in. Dilly is a quiet boy who loves everyone. His life goal is to snuggle with another dog. He is potty trained, crate trained and not toy or food aggressive. He is definitely not a fit to be an only dog, he enjoys the company of other dogs very much.

Lucky for Dilly, there is a family waiting for him already. He will have an older very snuggly pug brother and a little terrier sister. It is a perfect match!

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

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

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

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

DrummondPH ID: #6122
Drummond is an 18 month old pug mix. Drummond is housebroken and crate trained. He has a beautiful brindle coat and soulful eyes. He is heartworm negative. Drummond will be ready for adoption after his Neuter and possible soft pallet surgery on December 3. Drummond is amazing in a leash and will sit on command. He loves to play with toys and run around his foster family’s backyard. Once playtime is over Drummond loves to cuddle up to his humans. He is a total goof-ball and sometimes doesn’t realize his size. Get your application in for this sweet boy.

DublinPH ID: #6154
Dublin is a 4 year old owner surrender through no fault of her own. It doesn't get any better than this girl! She's house trained, crate trained, healthy, and a total sweetheart.

She's come out of her shell since I've had her, and is really showing her personality. She likes to bark at other animals on tv, but will quiet down as soon as you say her name. She perches on the back of the sofa so she can see who's at the front door, and will alert you of any potential intruders! She likes to play with my crew, but could easily be an only dog if that works better for your household.

She would do best in a home with no young children as she came from a home with a toddler that was a little too much for her personality. A home with children over 10 would be ideal.

EarlPH ID: #6094
My name is Earl but my foster mom and dad call me Earl the Pearl. After the only family I ever knew my entire life my gave me up I lost hope that anyone would love a pug like me again. I mean I’m 14 years old, blind, deaf, suffer from severe arthritis, have a hunched back and an underbite. I’m not one of those pugs that people look at an say awwww, I’m the one they say ewww to.

Despite those things when PugHearts got me I was really scared and paced around a lot thinking they wouldn’t want me either. I thought they’d give me up too but boy, was I wrong! They took me to their own doctor and got me on some kind of medicine to help my arthritis and daily eye drops too. I felt so special and wanted. The best thing is PugHearts has me in a foster home who tell me how much they love me every single day. They bought me my very own bed, give me double portions of food to help me gain weight (plus lots of snacks), cuddle and let me all the time and because walking hurts so much my foster mom bought me a life jacket that has a handle on it. She carries me in an out of the house for bathroom breaks. The rest of the time these old bones of mine are tired and I sleep most of the time. I have 3 other foster siblings who are pretty nice. My foster mom tells me she’s proud of me because I've never peed in the house and I try really hard not to poo, but sometimes I can’t help it. My foster mom never gets mad at me though because she said I can’t help it with my arthritis. I really love my foster parents and give them kisses whenever I can actually see their faces.

I know the chances of anyone wanting to adopt an old man like me is slim but that’s ok because I know PugHearts will always make sure I’m safe and cared for. I’m very thankful to have PugHearts and a foster mom and dad who love me and want me to spend my senior years in comfort.

EmmyPH ID: #6134
Sweet Emmy was found sitting in a pouring rain when she could go no further. She is approximately 8 years old, severely underweight (weighing 10 lbs when she should weigh at least 15). She is diabetic, has a dental disease and the world's biggest personality. You would think this critically underweight, she'd do the bare minimum yet here she is bossing us around, tapping her bowl whenever hungry (which is all the time) and following us everywhere. Emmy is the most velcro pug I have ever seen and will cry when she cannot be with her person. She is absolutely beautiful and i cannot wait to see what she looks like once she gains all the weight she needs and we get her glucose curve under control. Her insulin shots are very easy and cheap to administer. The whole procedure takes about one minute at feeding time twice a day. Many more happy updates to come! She is a fighter.

EsmeraldaPH ID: #6152
Esmerelda is FEISTY! And 5 years old. She will do best in a house without other female dogs. She is very dominant, but cute as a bug. Her happy war dance is amazing. She is working on house training and needs eye drops in her left eye every day twice a day for the rest of her life. She is learning to be very patient about those drops.

EttaPH ID: #6137
Etta is a 4 year young beauty from South Texas, unfortunately she is HW+ so she won’t be available until late March.

Etta came to PH with everyone telling us she was very, but in the short time we have had her she has turned into just the sweetest girl. She gets along great with all of our grumble. She is housebroken and has not had any accidents in the house. She sleeps in a kennel at night next to our bed, which we are slowly working towards her making it to the big bed.

Don’t wait until March for this girl, she will get 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)

FinleyPH ID: #6157
Finley is an owner surrender from the Houston area. She was turned over to PugHearts after allergies caused her family to move her to become an outside dog. Finley is 4 years old and has been well cared for and loved. She gets along great with other dogs and loves squeaky toys. She’s house trained and doesn’t mind being crates during the day. She loves giving kisses and snuggling up next to you on the couch. Finley has the cutest, most compact little pug body and the absolute best curled tail. She’s hoping for her very own home for the holidays with lots of treats, laps and love.

FrancescaPH ID: #6147
Francesca is an elegant, petite fawn lady, and apparent breeder dump from the Rio Grande Valley. She comes to us at age 8, complete with insidious dental disease, scabby chest, ribs showing, and heart worms. In spite of all of this, she's a wagging, cheerful, chatty girl. All. The. Time. She reveled in her first spa experience (nails not so much), and is adapting gratefully to her lavish new pet pug life. Her spay and dental are first priority on 12/11/19, but since she has to undergo our heart worm treatment process, look for her home ready late Spring 2020. Meantime follow her updates, antics, and very probably ensembles including, yes, tiny hats, on our Facebook page and Instagram.

Welcome to life as it always should have been, Frantastic.

FranklinPH ID: #5901
This is Mr. Franklin, a 6-year old pug that came to Pughearts in a bad state. He has severe skin issues which cause him to scratch incessantly and lose fur in several parts of his body. He is also very underweight. We're hoping that with a good diet and more frequent feeding, he will gain some weight. With time, lots of love, and attention, we are optimistic that Mr. Franklin's personality will come out. At the moment, he is extremely shy and very wary of humans. He doesn't like to venture out of his crate and explore his surroundings. Unfortunately, we believe that all his life, he was in a cage. We are also trying to show him that it's okay to have fun and play with his foster brothers and sisters. He is not ready for adoption since he still needs time to heal. However, Mr. Franklin hopes that there is a special person or family out there who will be able to see past his "imperfections" and love him for his gentle demeanor and quiet personality. Mr. Franklin had a sad life before Pughearts. He deserves a chance to be happy.

GemPH ID: #6084
Sweet foster Gem is 7 years old and has known nothing but a chain and an iron fence until PugHearts. Gem came in with heartworms, hookworms, dry eyes, dental disease, flea allergy, mass on her left front foot and she of course wasn't spayed. She also wasn't potty trained and froze whenever she was touched. Fast forward just a week and Gem is beautifully potty trained, crate trained and loves being pet. She also knows sit and figured out how to settle down and Netflix with us. She is super tiny, has a goofy little face with a sideways hanging tongue and her head tilt game is on point!

This precious gem stole the heart of a sweet family who will adopt her in 2020 once all her treatments are completed. Her new name will be Ruby so that the theme stays the same. Congratulations to everyone!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

HeathPH ID: #4805
Heath is a 9 yr old male. He was surrendered back to PugHearts with his friend Candy Corn due to medical issues in the family..

This adorable pair are bonded to each other.

They will only be adopted together.

HenryPH ID: #6142
Full Description Coming Soon!

HerculesPH ID: #6149
Foster Hercules is a 5 yr old, heartworm positive, intact male from a shelter down in the valley. He is very under weight but has already outgrown the first harness I put him in. He is currently being bathed every other day with medicated shampoo to treat an oily skin condition. He will be available for his furever home after he is neutered and completed his heartworm treatment.

He was said to have been attacked by bigger dogs. He favors his hind right leg. But doesn’t seem to be in any pain. He drags the toes of that foot. Which keeps the toenails trimmed. One less paw to have to trim. He sleeps all night in his crate. He will rest in it during the day without a peep. He’s a GOOD dog.

HOWEVER, I would get an application in now and lay claims to this fine Pug. This guy will not last long. He is FULL of personality. When he gets to his full weight he will be so handsome. Beautiful face.


HermanPH ID: #6121
Hi there! I’m Herman! I’m a goofy, clumsy, 18 month old, male pug. I was brought into PugHearts after being found running the streets all alone. My foster parents say I have the best smile. I love playing with toys and chewing on antlers. I’m great with other dogs and humans! I have a lot of energy, and would love to have a grumble to call my own! I’d do best in a multi-dog home, so I have a lot of friends to play with. I love head scratches and belly rubs, but I’m not much of a lap dog. I like my foster humans just fine, but I really love my foster doggy sisters. I’m almost fully potty trained, and almost fully crate trained too! I can also sit on command! The doctors say I’m a year and a half, but I definitely act more like a puppy. I’m heartworm negative, and should be ready for my forever home in December!

JamesonPH ID: #6120
MEET Jameson

This guy came to us very reserved and scared. Wow is he coming out of his shell! He whines out of excitement when he plays with other dogs! He is always on the hunt for something, and has grown extremely fond of our female pug. He has a sense of when my girls go to bed...in the bed for snuggles before they lay their heads down.

His fur coat is the softest you have ever felt.

He has adapted to the crate with treats and our calming pug with whom he shares it. He is a stunning 5 year old male.

Jameson enjoys standing on your chest and being eye-to-eye with you.

He has been marking around the house, so he ya wearing a stylish belly band for my sanity. In his defense, our house is full of girl scents. But he goes outside regularly as well.

Jameson has had an argument or two over food with our pointer-mix rescue. Now they eat with a wall in between them until they get used to each other. This guy has the sweetest temperament. I’m seeing more of it each day he stays.

JaredPH ID: #6066
Welcome Foster Jared, the Apricot Puggle to our Rescue! He is the cutest puggle and is 8 yrs old and heartworm negative.

He is super skinny and I put him the smallest belly band I have for a puppy and it fits him. His owner passed away so he was left at a shelter only to be Euthanized. He loves to play with his toys and he loves to be by his human. He sleeps very well in the bed with my other Pugs. He doesn't like the crate but will tolerate it for short distance. He is very mellow and has no aggression when eating or other Pugs. He fits right in with my Grumble and loves to play with his Dolly. Jared is very smart and will let you know if he needs to go out to potty. Not one accident in the house and usually all my males will mark, but not Jared. Super mellow Dude he just loves his toys and your affection!

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!

LennoxPH ID: #6058
Lennox is a beautiful 6 year old fawn female that was found roaming in a field covered in fleas. She was turned in to the local shelter and after a stray hold, and exhausting all efforts to find her family, PugHearts was called. She came in with severe flea allergies and other skin issues which means medicated baths twice a week as well as a cycle of prednisone to help clear everything up. Unfortunately, Lennox comes to PugHearts severe heartworm positive, but good news is she’s not showing any symptoms of this, and her x-rays show clear lungs. She has the perfect silver markings on her face with the most loving and attentive eyes. She is 100% Velcro, follows her person around everywhere, and loves to sleep right next to you in bed at night. She gets along with other dogs and does fine with children too. Lennox is not one to beg for attention. She will patiently wait her turn, but will show immense gratitude and love for all the pets and pug kisses she receives. She’s completely house trained and crate trained, but roams freely in the house when I’m home or away and has no issues at all. She is a great eater, loves her fruits and vegetables, and takes all meds like a champ with a spoon of peanut butter. She will have a dental next month. Currently, Lennox is on a glucosamine supplement for preventative measures. Heartworm treatment will begin at the end of October and she’ll be ready for her forever home right after Thanksgiving. Will Lennox become your holiday baby?

LeoPH ID: #6061
This super sweet 4 yr old boy comes to PugHearts from a backyard breeder, and has most likely spent his life thus far outside as a breeding dog. But he's adapting to indoor life amazingly! He's 90% house trained, does great in the kennel or loose in the house. Does well with other dogs & cats, absolutely LOVES belly rubs! Loves his dog bed and chews, has already learned to sit and is very food motivated.

He's very adaptable and would do well in most environments, as long as he has someone to cuddle with.

Unfortunately, he is heartworm positive, so he won't be available until mid December, but he would love a home for Christmas!

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!!

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!!

Lola BellaPH ID: #6072
Hi Everybody! My name is Lola Bella aka Lil’Bit. I am about 3 yrs young. I found my way to PugHearts because a nice lady found me wandering the streets in the middle of the day on a sweltering Houston summer heat. The nice lady gave me water and cool me off before I pass out of dehydration. She then call her friend that fosters for PugHearts and she took me to her who is now my FoMo. The good Dr. Hendrix said that I had babies at one point, need some minor surgery here and there and FoMo said that I probably got dumped because I don’t want to be breed again and again. Unfortunately, whoever had me before did not take good care of me because I have heart worms and need to undergo treatment. As soon as I finish the treatment and become healthy, I will be living my best life ever. For now, I am getting spoiled by my FoMo with lots of treats, cuddles, belly rubs and kisses. I will keep everybody posted with my progress and journey with PugHearts. Oh and please Keep me and my fellow fosters in your thoughts and prayers.

She is not food aggressive and very rarely has "accidents" on the floor. If you like to sleep late, Louise will not wake you up! She is perfectly happy snuggling in the bed next to you and is such good company. If you are looking for a furry companion to watch movies with you and love you unconditionally, Louise is for you!

LyricPH ID: #6113
Lyric came to PugHearts from a shelter in South Texas. She was skinny and frail and (unknown to us) was already starting her battle with parvo. She fought hard and with 4 transfusions of plasma and ICU care, she pulled through. Now this beautiful girl is working on gaining weight and learning to be the happy little girl she should have always gotten to be.

Lyric is 1 yr old and still has a way to go before being ready for adoption, but the future is looking bright.

MadisonPH ID: #6110
Madison is an adorable 14 lb, 5 year old that came to PugHearts from The Rio Grande Valley. She has spent the majority of her short life being locked in a cage and used for breeding. She has the cutest, perkiest little ears that sit right on top of her head, and the sweetest, most loving disposition. Madison gets along great with other dogs and loves sitting on the couch, snuggled in a blanket. She’s done well on house training but hasn’t quite mastered the doggy door. She sleeps in the big bed at night and is never too far away from my pillow. Madison had severe mastitis and ulcerated foot pads during her intake exam from having multiple litters and living in a crate, but thankfully was heartworm negative. She will be ready for her forever home following her spay on November 12.

Mahoney is so adorable that he was adopted at his very first event!

MargoPH ID: #6031
Hi! I’m Margo and my Foster Mom says I am PERFECT!!! Here’s why…I’m the perfect female at age 6 and am healthy. No heartworms. I am getting spay on Aug 27th, along with a dental. Other reasons I am perfect…I can sit, walk on a leash and I LOVE to walk. I can play and be rowdy but I can chill out when it’s time. I come when called but I’m usually very close to you. 90% housebroke. I am crate trained. I don’t have separation anxiety. I DON’T SNORE, amazing right? I love the other dogs in the house and the humans. I can alert when there’s trouble but I don’t invent it. In Pug language – I don’t bark if a leaf blows down.

My negatives…honestly my Foster Mom says I don’t have any. She says I’m cute as a bug as I am a small Pug. HA HA That was my joke. Did I mention I’m funny?

FROM FOSTER MOM: Margo had a few accidents in the house the first few days but I think it was being in a new environment and a couple of ‘marking’ incidents that should be completely gone after her spay and the hormones settle. She is quiet and sweet. She is charming and really is a Perfect Pug.

MarvoloPH ID: #6056
Puppy Marvolo was born July 31, 2019. He is a beautiful black boy with white chest markings and a short coat. He is a mixed breed pug. His mom (a pug) was found by her owner as a stray.

I live for long naps and snuggling with my human. I love cats, dogs and birds. In fact Foster Mom days I love everyone. The only thing I do not like is to miss a meal!

MauricePH ID: #5973
Maurice is a 13 year old sweetheart. He is vision impaired and has severe dry eye and some skin issues that we are working on. He is crate trained and loves being outside when it is not to hot. Maurice does not bark but loves to sit in my lap. He still has a lot of love to give his new mommy or daddy.

MemphisPH ID: #6101
Foster Memphis is a 4 year old male Pug mix who came to PugHearts from the Rio Grand Valley. He's super friendly and gets along well with his 6 year old Pug sister, however, he thinks she's too lazy and not much fun, so he prefers hanging out with his human. He can be a little shy at first, but warms up quickly and loves everyone he meets.

Memphis is heartworm negative and scheduled to be neutered o 11/12/2019. This not so little guy (approx 23 lbs) needs some coaxing to go into the kennel, but once in, he does great! He is mostly house trained and we're working on getting that to 100%

MercedesPH ID: #5626
Mercedes comes to PugHearts from a Texas shelter. She had been suspected of being hit by a car....but as it turns out, she has some significant hip and spinal issues that are not new.

If you want a lady to spend quality time with and allow her to be spoiled for the remainder of her days....Millie is your gal!

MiltonPH ID: #6130
Milton is a tiny 4 month old pug that came into PugHearts by way of The Valley. Like most of our ‘Valley Pugs’ Milton was anemic and tested borderline positive for Lyme disease. He’s on medications to help with this in the hopes that the blood test will show his numbers have improved enough to discontinue his prescriptions. Milton is all puppy. He loves exploring in the yard, eating whatever he finds on the ground and getting into places that he’s not suppose to go. He’s also an award winning cuddler, and loves burying himself right under your arm to sleep the night away. Milton gets along great with other dogs and would love a home where he can play with human and fur siblings. He’s a tiny thing, only weighing 8 lbs, and hopefully following his neuter we can finally get him to put on some weight. He has an amazing wiggle butt and gets so excited when meeting new friends. He loves giving kisses to both his fur siblings and foster mommy. Who wants to give the adorable little boy a home of his own?

MindyPH ID: #6125

MochiPH ID: #5801
Mochi is a 13 year old owner surrender. He is a sweet little man. He has some back problems, but he gets around fine. He is blind and deaf, but he is a Velcro dog. He follows me all over the house. He located his food and water bowls, and now he is doing great! I don't let him sleep on the bed because I'm afraid he will fall off. He sleeps on a bed next to mine and gets along fine with the other pugs in my home. He has to be taken outside regularly. He would be a great addition to a home without small children or big dogs. He is a wonderful little companion, and he is quiet. The ideal home for him would be with someone that is home a lot and has time to love on him. Mochi is a lap dog that needs someone to love him during his golden years. He has plenty of love to give in return!

NewtPH ID: #6161
Full Description Coming Soon!

OpheliaPH ID: #5085
Ophelia comes to PugHearts from the Rio Grande valley.

She is a 4 year old fawn female. She is severe heartworm positive and will have to go through treatment prior to adoption.

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

Medical hold and then pending adoption with his foster Mom.

OzzyPH ID: #6156

Otherwise he is healthy and heartworm negative, so he will be ready for his forever home by mid-December. He is one of the most gentle and loving fosters we have ever had! He loves to cuddle and give kisses and adores our 4 year old son. He gets along well with our other dogs, playing with those who like it and avoiding those that don't. He has the playfulness of a puppy, but calms down and snuggles when you ask him to. Someone will be very lucky to welcome this sweetheart into their home, could it be you?

PangPH ID: #5806
My name is Pang but my foster mom calls me Chickey Chickey Pang Pang.

A little strange but I answer to it.

I had a home for the first 9 years of my life but my family loved me so much they gave me to PugHearts. You see, my fur brother did not get along with me and in order to keep me safe, they gave me up.

I don’t pee in the house, I will never turn down a treat, I am crate trained and I see out of my one eye perfectly. I live with lots of other dogs and even a cat right now and I love them all.

I even have two human girls that love to cuddle with me.

I am looking for my furever home. To meet me is to love me.

PattersonPH ID: #6128
Patterson is a playful 2 year old who loves his toys and foster sisters. He’s a cuddle bug and the true definition of a Velcro pug, he’s where ever his human is. He’s also a shoe thief. If one of us is away he’ll bring your shoe to the other person still at home as if to say “I miss her and am thinking about her”. He’s scheduled for his neuter and boosters then he’ll go onto his forever home in Katy to be spoiled by two little girls and a wonderful family.

PennyPH ID: #347
Penny is a sweet and sassy 12 year old who came to Pughearts due to health changes in her family. She’s hard of hearing, but can hear loud noises and follows the pack and hand signals. She has a bit of arthritis with meds 2x a day, but trots at full speed when it’s dinner time and will woo-woo if her dinner is late. She can’t jump on the couch or big bed, but wants to be picked up for snuggles. She’s house and crate trained and gets along with the others. She’s the perfect mix of spicy and sensible and wants to fill your heart and home with love and laughter. Take a chance on her. She might be your lucky Penny.

PiercePH ID: #6141
Foster Pierce is a 4 yr old Puggle. He is neutered, heartworm negative and ready to go. He is a sweet somewhat timid dog but the more comfortable he gets the more personality is shining thru. There are no children in our house but based on his whining when he hears the kids next door and when he say 2 boys riding their bikes down the street I would say he LOVES them.

Foster Pierce was seen being dumped by people who decided they didn't want him any more. Thank goodness this was seen by a person who made contact with PugHearts and he was transported to Houston to find his furever home. This charming love bug would be a great addition to any home. He is handsome, a perfect size - not too big not too small just right, he sleeps all night and rests during the day quietly in his crate. He wants to be with people. He would love to be a lap dog and hang out on the sofa and watch TV. He gets along with the other dogs in the house. I believe with minimal effort he will be house broke. It's sometimes hard to tell in a foster environment as they are trying to get settled into the household routines.

RandyPH ID: #6041
Hello Everybody! I am Randy. I am 1 yr old and some change. I came to PugHearts because my previous owner was too busy to take care of me, they kept me boarded for 3 months. A nice lady rescued me out from that place and kept me for a few days until the awesome doctor at my vet was able to check me. The doctor said I am physically healthy, just need my big boy surgery, which is soon (Sept. 5). I do have some psychological trauma from almost no human interaction and not knowing what being love by humans feel like and how to be a dog. But don’t feel bad folks, I am getting all the help I need and all the love and belly rubs and cuddles from my foster Mom and her people (the nice lady that is taking care of me right now, that's what she calls herself). I get along real good with my foster brothers, they taught me how to play and sit and go inside the play pen and go potty outside and I finally like eating moist kibble.

Hopefully I will find my furever home and a family that will love me unconditionally and spend time with me.


RenPH ID: #5657
Ren comes to PugHearts from the Rio Grande Valley. He was part of a group from a puppy mill and poor Ren is scared of everything. He is, sadly, heartworm positive and will have to go through heartworm treatment. He is very slowly learning to trust a human and we will do everything in our power to make sure he knows he will never be hurt or alone again.

RileyPH ID: #5937
Riley 6 is one of our newest fosters from Rio Grande Valley. He is a 2 year old winky stunner. He is that rarer, deep, golden/apricot fawn. He has a massive, soulful, wildly expressive head. He needs lots of groceries. Sadly, he is heart worm positive, so weight is not readily gained till after treatment, which he'll receive in July, but means he won't be home ready until August. We were able to neuter and remove his injured eye (hence winky) upon intake, and he is healing nicely. He sees perfectly with his remaining peeper. He loves exploring the yard and mingling with the other pugs. He does not object to the crate, but snores like the sleep apnea poster child ????. He's a taller, longer guy; goal weight is 20 pounds. We will also work on house and potty manners, but he will need a family with patience and willingness to continue positive and consistent reinforcement. I have every expectation that with these things, he'll grow into the healthy, fine gentleman he was meant to be. He's already gorgeous; obviously. And, just, HIS TAIL. A double twist for the ages.

RosePH ID: #5537
Beatrix Rose (PH Rose) is a super star. She is around 8 years old small little lady She is opinionated and let’s you know it. She does have some loss of use in her back legs but gets around well she potties outside, most of the time.

She loves her kennel and goes in there on her own to nap. She gets along well with the other pugs. She is heartworm positive and will go through treatment before going to her forever home. So get your application in for her. #phadoptme

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

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

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

RussellPH ID: #6109
Russell is a 3 year old Bugg (Pug/Boston mix), making him the stunning striped nugget you see here.

All he needs is neutering and will have to go through heartworm treatment prior to adoption. He's the perfect combination of spunk and sweet. He rides and sleeps quietly in the crate, loves to roam the yard, and is still somewhat timid with new places, toys, and dogs. He does need some guidance with house breaking, but is very responsive to praise and food rewards. Russell is an absolute and unique doll. Follow him on Facebook, though I expect he won't be there long!

ShelbyPH ID: #6104
Shelby came to PugHearts after spending the first 2 years of her life as a backyard breeder dog. Her body condition makes it apparent that she’s been over bred despite her young age. She has beautiful fawn coloring with the most perfect black mask. Shelby is both house trained and doggy door trained. She sleeps thru the night cuddled up to me and enjoys her morning naps back in the big bed, hiding behind all the pillows. Lap time is her second favorite thing behind napping, and when she can sleep in your lap, Shelby is in heaven! She does great with other dogs and enjoys keeping everyone in line. She eats all her meals in a crate, but has free roaming privileges throughout the day, whether I’m home or not. She’s already been spayed and had her nares surgery, which means Shelby ready for her forever home. Shelby does have dry eye and is currently on daily drops to help her eyes stay shiny and keep her vision good.

SoraPH ID: #6153
I’m Sora and brand new to PugHearts! I got here through no fault of my own, just a few days ago. My family had some changes that forced them to find me a new home. I’m about 2 years old, very sweet and loving. I just want a person to call my own. I love playing with other dogs and I don’t have any problems with cats either. I’m potty trained and working on crate training. I’ll update with more information about my health after my vet check up this week!

SuriPH ID: #6138
Suri is an 8 year old spunky female. She is heartworm negative ready for adoption, but she has to wait for her brother’s neuter before she can be adopted. Suri is bonded with her pugzu brother, Larry. She is learning about toys at her foster home. Suri and Larry can’t wait to have a home to call their own.

SybilPH ID: #5638

Teddy GrahamPH ID: #5995
Foster Teddy Graham is quite a handsome little NAP (Not A Pug). He’s a young guy (2) with a handsome face and a fantastic grille. I think he may be part wiener dog, he has super short legs and he’s long. But that’s just my guess. He’s a lover and gets along with everyone he has met. He loves to play but he also likes to cuddle, he’s a great mix of both. He’s been neutered and will be ready for adoption when he goes through his hw treatment. Keep this guy on your radar.

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

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

ThomasPH ID: #6089
Please Welcome Thomas the Tank to PugHearts! He is 3 yrs old heartworm positive and will be losing his left eye due to previous trauma. He has been living in the streets and has no idea what living inside is or the most important part what LOVE is. But BOY IS HE SMART, he is already learning how to sit. He will be with me awhile since he has to go through heartworm treatment in a couple of months. He will also have to have a Neuter, Nares and a Dental done. Thomas will know what Love feels like, a warm bed to snuggle in, a touch of a human hand and to never be hungry again

ThumperPH ID: #6136
Thumper is the boy half of the bonded pair of 18 month old mixes, Bambi & Thumper. They are the best of friends and crate quietly together. They have long, silky apricot coats and curled tails, though Thumper's is more tightly curled. Both very friendly and love to play in the yard. They are fostered together and will be adopted together. Who needs a pair of darling his and her Christmas bookends?! They are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, perfectly healthy, and ready now!!

*Thumper has the curlier tail.

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

TobiasPH ID: #4629
Tobias is an extremely handsome older black pug. We think he’s about 12. He has dry eye and has some vision impairment but he can certainly still see. He’s HW negative so he’s ready to find his forever home.

From Toby (with some help from his foster): Hello! My name is PH Foster Tobias (but all of my friends call me Toby). I have been living with my foster family since August and have learned a lot of new things! I have learned to walk on a leash along with my pug foster brother and sister and now enjoy several short walks each day. I was having trouble seeing when I came to live with my foster family. My vision seems to be getting better since my foster mommy makes me homemade food to go along with my hard food and gives me vitamins and eye drops. My foster mommy taught me how to sit and she brags to everyone about how I have never had an accident in the house. We have a cat at my foster home and we get along great, too. Although I love my foster family, I am looking for a forever home. I love to sit on the couch and cuddle and would make a great companion for someone living alone. I’m a very laid back and loving pug. Won’t you please consider adopting me?



TobinPH ID: #6131
Tobin is a 10 month old precious baby boy who was lucky enough to have an owner who realized that the best thing she could for him after she became ill was to give him a chance for a wonderful future starting with PugHearts. He is a happy and energetic little guy. He understands what “no” means and his love for chewing on things is easily corrected. He is working on potty training and is doing well. He loves playing with his foster siblings and loves attention from his humans. He will be available for adoption sometime in December after he is neutered. Put in that application as he is going to be a popular little guy.

TonyPH ID: #6086
Tony, Tony The Tiger, He's grrrrrrreat, all terms of endearment for a guy who came to PH as an owner surrender. He's a young 9 ish in age, loving, snuggly, house-trained and crate trained. He puts himself in his crate to eat and to sleep (so cute). He is battling yeasty skin issues and under constant care of our vet until cleared up. He has dry eye which causes limited vision. He cannot go to a home with a pool unless fenced in. He can get grumpy so I feel he won't do good in a home with small children either. He is very good with the other dogs but prefers his chosen humans' lap. And his cuteness factor is off the charts (search for his kicking video on our FB page)! Won't you love to have this beautiful senior in your home?

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.

WendyPH ID: #6124
Wendy came into to PugHearts as an owner surrender with her sister Mindy. We have determined that they aren’t bonded but we do feel both would do best in a home with other dogs.

Wendy is only 7 months old and one of many PugHearts ‘Valley Pugs.’ She’s the sweetest little girl with the longest legs I’ve ever seen. She loves cuddling with her foster mommy or in the dog bed making pug piles. She came in with some intestinal parasites as well as ear mites, but medicine has cleared all that up. She’s done great with house training but still needs a little reminder of when it’s time to go outside. She loves lounging on the outdoor furniture. catching some rays. Despite her sweet and calm disposition, Wendy is all puppy. She loves being chased around the yard by her foster siblings, and playing tug of war with every toy that they find. She’s still in the chewing stage, so chew toys will help some with keeping your furniture from getting damaged. Wendy will be ready for her forever home following her spay on December 10.
