Full Description Coming Soon!

AmbrosePH ID: #6185
Ambrose is an approximately 2 year old very good boy who came to PugHearts from a local shelter. At the time he was surrendered, his left eye had ruptured and we immediately rushed him to our vet for treatment. Ambrose has his eye removed and is now the cutest little winky imaginable. He has all of the energy you’d expect from a young guy and he loves to wrestle, run, jump and patrol the yard. Ambrose is eager to please his humans and is working hard on mastering potty training. He’s learned how to access the yard through the doggie door and knows that’s where he needs to do his business. Ambrose is an enthusiastic eater and loves to play with his foster brothers cuddle on the couch. He runs on one speed - super fast - but crashes out for nap time just as quickly. Ambrose is heading to his forever home as soon as he gets his last round of vaccinations and his new daddy and pug brother are so excited to welcome him home.


AsherPH ID: #6193
Asher is a 10 month old male from the Rio Grande Valley. This handsome boy has a thick, fawn coat with a beautiful mask and coloring, and very expressive facial wrinkles!

Asher has a typical puppy personality: sweet, playful, funny, and inquisitive! He does excellent in a crate and is actively working on his “marking” manners. Asher does well with other dogs and loves to play and cuddle with them and humans alike!

*Asher is happy to announce he will be adopted to his forever home after he’s neutered in February!

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.

BabyPH ID: #6231
Full Description Coming Soon!

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.

BailleauxPH ID: #6235
You may have noticed Bailleaux is not exacly a pug and you'd be right. He is a 2 year old frenchie who was found on the street having surious issues breathing. His journey with us started at an ER in an oxygen chamber but he has since had a soft palate surgery and a nares surgery and can breathe beautifully. You should see the joy in his eyes now! He did a complete 180 and from a guy who'd barely move he turned into a miniature bucking bull.

He loves to run around and play with other dogs so he would have a blast with another youngster. He's giving his old foster brothers a run for their money, haha. He does have some asymptomatic vertebral issues we are currently looking into and unfortunately he is heartworm positive. His potty traning is a work in progress but he has improved tremendously. Now that he is neutered we expect him to master this skill in a few short weeks.

Bailleaux is beautiful and SO SO HAPPY. I have never seen a happier dog in my life. He loves everyone and everything and he's never met a stranger. He knows sit, is perfectly crate trained and will let you sleep in. I am yet to hear him make a peep, not a talker or a yapper. He does have a mind of a distracted toddler. During meal times I have to stand over him because he will run off and then happily watch other dogs eat his food, haha. This sweet goober will be ready for adoption after his heartworm treatment in May.

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.

BentleyPH ID: #6233
Bentley is a solid fawn pug. He's 2years old. He does have a seizure disorder and will need medication for life but they are small seizures that he has by closing his eyes and appears to be backing up, which last from 10-30 seconds. If you notice he is having a seizure, you gently touch him for comfort and he does respond to touch. He will snap right out of a seizure like nothing happened. He will be needing to have occasional blood levels checks of his seizure medication to make sure he is getting proper levels of medications. He takes his medication twice a day (Every 12 hours) with his meal (I wrap in liverwurst). He is learning and slowly accepting snuggles and cuddling. He can sleep in a crate or a doggy bed. He is very playful wanting to play tug a war and finds squeaky toys very interesting. He loves to follow his human.

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!

BeverlyPH ID: #6212
Introducing foster Beverly! She’s a 2 year old Pug/Boston Terrier mix and just gorgeous with that brindle coat. Super smart (learned how to use our doggy door with just 3 tries) and very affectionate. Gets along great with our 4 yr old daughter and the rest of our pack. She likes walks, car rides and meeting new people at Starbucks. Please, please, please adopt her before I keep her forever.

BirdiePH ID: #6190
Hi! Meet the beautiful, petite in size, but not in attitude Birdie! This sweet, sassy little lady is 12 years old, but she clearly doesn’t know this. She is still quite playful and spunky! She was very loved by her human, but sadly her human went to heaven, so now she’s looking for someone to love her for the rest of her days. She is a petite little girl at about 12 lbs, housebroken, gets along with other dogs and cats. She is spry and likes to explore outside. Her eyesight is dwindling, but not blind, and has some hip dysplasia, but she doesn’t seem to be bothered by it. She is heartworm negative. This girl is a gem!!

BlakePH ID: #6219
This is Blake, a 4 year old fawn male. He is heartworm negative, no medical issues, small with a beautiful little face. He loves to play with other dogs and loves to snuggle. His favorite place is a pillow in the couch. He will sleep in a dog bed but would prefer your lap or the couch. He will play with a toy but only if one of the others play with him. He likes treats but is very picky, his favorite is Pup-a-roni or any type of beef treat. He is not food aggressive and will let others eat his food. He is doing good with potty training and would do great with a dog door. His previous owner did not show him much love so he needs someone who will love him unconditionally and show him how much he is wanted in your family.

BorisPH ID: #6111
Foster Boris is a 10 year old double winky. He is crate trained but loves to sleep on rugs at front or back door.

Boris does not bark. He loves to be outside in good weather and just rome the yard smelling everything. Boris would a senior family to love and take care of him.

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.

BriggPH ID: #6184
Full Description Coming Soon!

BrinleyPH ID: #6196
Brinley is 6 years old and heart worm negative. She is very sweet and loves to play with toys. She is completely housebroken and crate trained. Brinley loves to cuddle up on the couch. Brinley also has the most expressive ears and you can only see how awesome they are in person. She will be ready for adoption after her spay surgery on January 31. Get your applications in Brinley before it’s too late!

BrodiPH ID: #4665
Brodi is a healthy 8 year old puggle looking for his forever family. Heartworm negative and neutered means he is ready to go. He has occasional allergies that sometimes require antihistamines but otherwise he isn’t on any regular medicines. He needs a home where someone is home a lot. Ideally his new mom or dad would be retired or work from home. Brodi gets along with most other dogs, but doesn’t play with them. He prefers to lounge on the couch or just hang out with his person. He would do well as an only dog as long as his human is home a lot. If there are other dogs in the household they need to be willing to respect Brodi’s space as he doesn’t like other dogs in his face. Brodi would be fine with older kids who respect boundaries. He is fine with cats also.

He is completely potty trained and does NOT mark in the house, ever. He will use the doggie door or bark to let you know he needs to go out. Brodi loves to go for walks and car rides. He rides very well in the car and loves to go places with you. He sleeps through the night in the big bed with me. He makes sure I get up in time for breakfast though! He’s had some negative experiences associated with a crate in the past so I just haven’t used one for him. He’s such a good boy that there really isn’t a need for a crate. Brodi has one toy that came with him to PugHearts and that’s the only one he plays with, but he loves it! He will also entertain you with a few party tricks. He knows how to sit, shake and roll over on command. If you’re looking for an easy going, mature and fun companion Brodi might just be your man.

BuddyPH ID: #6224
Full Description Coming Soon!

BufordPH ID: #6203
Mr. Buford is a sweet bulldog/pug mix. Small for a bulldog, big for a pug. He is the best of both breeds. He so badly wants to be loved on and played with. He is house broken, and loves to just sit in his room (kennel). He knows when it is treat time he has to sit pretty in his room. He is super passive when it comes to other dogs. He plays well with puppies and would love to have a cat to play with as well. One that wont hiss at him preferably. He has the most adorable snores. He would love to be on the bed with you, but if you sit on the floor and play with him before bed, he will gladly sleep in a bed on the floor. In the bed he likes to be right up next to you and share your pillow with you. He likes to be under the covers as well. If you are single and looking for a wing-man he would be perfect. He dresses up well with a fancy straw fedora hat. Take him to a dog friendly bar and you are sure to meet new people. Wont you consider making this young 3 yo boy your best friend and wing-man?

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.

CooleyPH ID: #6205
Full Description Coming Soon!

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.

DamonPH ID: #6180
Damon came to us from the Rio Grande Valley area. Small, young, and underweight he was also battling an injured eye, broken leg and heartworms. He is currently being treated for his leg and the injured eye has been removed. He cannot see, as his other eye is underdeveloped, but that has not slowed this little guy down. He navigates areas with complete confidence and kennels well (as long as he knows you are around). He has a beautiful brindle coat and such a great personality. He loves being around his people (children included) and seems to get along just fine with other dogs as well. We are currently working on potty training as he is still a puppy. Once we get the green light for his leg he will be neutered and begin heartworm treatment. Keep an eye out for this little guy. He would make an excellent addition to any family!

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.

DauphinePH ID: #6166
Dauphine is a 10 year old female found on the streets outside New Orleans. When she first came to us, she was so terrified she cowered if you reached for her and was afraid to cross a doorway. It was clear she had never been allowed to live inside. We have shown her what a loving home is like and watched her confidence and personality blossom. She is now a sweet, snuggly little girl who loves people, playing with toys and other dogs. She may be 10 but she has the energy to easily keep up with our younger dogs and kids. She is heartworm negative and will ready in later January 2020 after she is spayed and has a dental.

DesmondPH ID: #6078
This is Desmond about 2 years old. We don't know his story, other thank he came from a shelter in Laredo, still intact and extremely fearful. We don't know if he was abused, or just never properly socialized. He has since been neutered and is medically healthy. He's on Prozac for his anxiety and is working on confidence building tricks/commands with his foster mom and one of the veterinary techs who's working on her behavior certification.

He is wonderful in a home environment; crate trained & does not whine, would sleep in the bed if you wanted. 90% house trained; as long as you keep him on a schedule, he's great. Does well with most other dogs, pretty much ignores the cats at this point.

He's loves learning new commands, he currently knows: Sit, Lay Down, Up (stand up on hind legs), Jump (onto whatever surface I point at), Get Down, Weave (between my legs in a figure 8) and Touch (touch his nose to any object). He's so smart and just wants to please you, He love toys, will fetch, go for walks, but also LOVES to cuddle.

He is still sensitive to changes in his environment, he enjoys walks around the block, but going out to crowded public places is tough. He would do great in a home environment with moderate to high activity (another dog to play with, and/or kids who are old enough, 12 yrs+, to understand boundaries). He's such a sweet boy and deserves a loving family of his own.

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.

ElsaPH ID: #6228
Meet gorgeous Foster Elsa! She’s a super sweet and mellow girl. She also seems to enjoy being pampered. Some of her favorite activities include napping, mealtime, and giving kisses! Elsa needs to have a little work done (nares, spay, dental, and she’s recovering from a nasty hot spot on her back) but then she’ll be ready to live the life of luxury she deserves.

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.

EnzoPH ID: #6201
Enzo came to PugHearts as an owner surrendered through no fault of his own. He and his sister Paige are a bonded pair. He is a 4yr old and heartworm negative big boy, weighing in at 30.6lbs; and is perfection in every way.

Enzo is the perfect house guest, well mannered and is potty trained. He loves his belly rubs and enjoys his cuddles. He is crate trained, with no known health issues.

This adorable hunk just wishes to be near his human. Making him the perfect Valcro pug!

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.

EthelPH ID: #6226
Ethel is a 10 yr old Chug. Around 8 pounds. She is very tiny. She is heartworm negative and healthy. She will be having a dental soon. Ethel is very sweet with her big eyes and big ears. She makes these little squeaky noises when she wants your attention. She loves to sit close to you or in your lap. She sleeps thru the night in her crate. She gets along with all the other dogs. Loves to go outside. She would make a wonderful companion for a house without a lot of activity. Saying this mainly because of her size. A house with very active children and lots of people coming and going could put her in a dangerous situation of being stepped on. She is this tiny. However, she is athletic and will jump from the sofa if allowed (I don't but she beats me to it sometimes). This little sweetheart was found wandering a neighborhood all by herself on a cold wet day. No one recognized her as belonging there so the good samaritan who found her gave her to PugHearts to find her a furever home. If you think this little bundle of love and joy would fit your home then look no further. She is ready to meet you.

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)

FionaPH ID: #6223
Full Description Coming Soon!

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.

GarfieldPH ID: #6188
Foster Garfield is a super handsome 1 year old male pug who is healthy, happy and will be ready for his forever home after his neuter on January 27th. This cuddly little 16 pound fella is the ultimate Velcro pug. He wants to cuddle his humans any chance he gets and will follow them anywhere. He gets along well with other dogs and is quite a mellow fellow for a 1 year old. He is crate trained and has a good grasp of house-training as well, although not 100% perfect yet. If you're looking for a snuggly best friend who will always be by your side, Foster Garfield is the guy for you!


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!

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.

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.

JacobPH ID: #6178
Everyone, please meet our newest intake - foster Jacob. This boy is literal perfection. 1 year old, potty trained, friendly and playful. He is neutered already and once he completes his intake exam this Tuesday or Wednesday and gets the remainder of yearly shots he should be ready to go so ACT FAST!!!

He comes from a family that found him on the street and took wonderful care of him. Unfortunately, the person caring for him was elderly and this excited puggy kept tripping her, which is incredibly dangerous. Broken-hearted they made the safest possible decision and let us find a new home for him. He would be a brilliant dog for an active family. He can be an only dog but he does play very politely with others so he would be a good grumble addition too!

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.

Super mellow Dude he just loves his toys and your affection!

He loves to wrestle and play with toys with his pug buddies. His social skills are impressive for a guy so young, as he isn’t aggressive or demanding with other dogs. He immediately backs off when out 9 year old pug lets him know he’s not in the mood to play. Jax is just happy to be in the mix and part of the party. He’s learning to use the dog door and seems to enjoying wandering around the yard and checking everything out.

Jax has his nares and soft palate surgery scheduled for 1/14. He is also being evaluated for hip dysplasia.

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!

JessiePH ID: #5935
Jessie is a sweet, spunky girl who was found as a stray in the Rio Grand Valley. She loves to cuddle people and gets along well with the other dogs, although she makes sure they know a toy or treat is hers if anyone gets too close. Her favorite way to spend the day is sleeping spread out on the big dog bed and snoring away! She is about 8 years old and heartworm negative. She has some spondylosis which makes her back legs stiff when she first gets up and moving, but she is surprisingly speedy once she gets going so don't let the funny gait fool you! She is fully house trained and crates happily.

KringlePH ID: #6179
Mr. Kringle is a healthy 2 year old. He is heartworm negative and will be neutered soon. He came to PugHearts as a stray with a badly messed up eye so it was immediately removed making him the most handsome winky pug there ever was. Kringle has some minor neurological deficits that make him a little clumsy and uncoordinated but it just adds to his charm. This also causes him to drag his feet just slightly when he walks. The upside of this is that it keeps his toe nails short and smooth! There’s always a silver lining!

Mr. Kringle is a happy, friendly, well mannered guy who makes friends everywhere he goes. He is a true Velcro pug wanting to be with his person all the time. You won’t ever be lonely going to the bathroom ever again! He’s also an expert snuggler. He does well with dogs of all sizes, cats and kids. He enjoys going on adventures with his human and rides in the car very nicely. He is crate trained and sleeps through the night in his crate. I’m sure he would love to sleep in bed with his human though! We are working on potty training and he is doing very well.

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!!

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!

MurphyPH ID: #6204
Foster Murphy, or miniature donkey foster Murphy how we like to call him, is just 3 years old but in his short life he's already experienced trauma that makes it hard for him to connect with humans. He was dumped at a shelter so know none of his past.

When he first came to us he would have huge fearful fits and not let anyone close to him. For a solid hour we couldn't get him to come inside the house or near us. Eventually we caught him in a slip leash and made him come in. Other dogs made him nervous but people were the worst.

In 1 week that we've had him, he's figured out crate training and runs in it happily for a treat and settles down immediately. He is a master fetcher, knows sit, likes being a part of a pack and is getting used to being loved on. He will come and ask to be pet but hates being picked up and shows some conflicting behaviors such as approaching you for petting but freezing as soon as you start petting him. We will be working with our behavior specialist to make him a confident dog so this cutie he can make the right family happy. With as much progress as we've seen in 1 week I am extremely hopeful that he can be the dog he is meant to be.

NewtPH ID: #6161
This 5 year old NAP (Not a Pug) Japanese Chin is the most amazing little Ewok. He is under 9 lbs and his coat is soft and fluffy. He is mostly blind but he gets around really well. He loves spending time in the yard laying by himself. He loves car rides and being carried around like the doll he is. Even though he’s very independent, he also loves spending time with his humans. He would kiss your face for several minutes to show his appreciation and then sleep in the craziest positions, crated or not. He is currently on meds to prevent seizures and since then he hadn’t had one. Because of his size, weight, sight shortcomings and outdoor predilections we would recommend him for a house with no pool and no toddlers. Newt is very low-key but he has the cutest little bark when he wants to play with his humans. Newt is scheduled for his big boy surgery on 01/15 and will be available for adoption afterwards. He won’t last a day out there so fill your adoption papers today!

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.

Ralphie loves snuggling with his foster siblings and plays non stop with all of his toys. Ralphie is only 15 weeks, so he has every good and bad habit that a puppy does. He needs a large amount of chew toys to keep him busy and loves car rides for new adventures. Ralphie is working hard on his house training, and uses the puddle pad on rainy days. He has learned how to use the doggy door, but for now it’s more to play outside instead of doing his business. Ralphie is the more laid back one of the three siblings. He loves giving kisses and snuggling with his foster mom and all of his siblings. Ralphie will need to be neutered prior to adoption.

RamonaPH ID: #6218

She wants to cuddle but only on her terms. Even feeding time can be tricky with her. She cannot eat in a crate and at times, she only feels comfortable eating outside all by herself. We’re still working on house training, but she’s doing better everyday. Ramona gets along well with other dogs and does well with children, both young and old. Ramona is heartworm negative, but will need to be spayed prior to adoption. She is a sweet, fawn girl that will flourish with the love, affection and structure that she craves.

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.

RomeoPH ID: #6221
Romeo is about 2 years and a total sweetheart. He loves to play with toys and go on walks. Being young Romeo has lots of energy and needs a home that will help him get his energy out.

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!


SamPH ID: #6140
Sam, The International Pug, was found limping a couple months ago in the rough streets of the Mexican border. He is 8 years old. He was anemic, incredibly thin and oh so sad. Since then, Sam has flourished into a beautiful dog: he is now house/crate trained, shares his food, waits patiently for his treats, got manners and loves spending time with his 4 other compadres. He specially loves little Newt and they kiss each other non stop. Sam loves his humans, he is a Velcro pug and likes to play kicking his soccer ball. He will have his big boy surgery on 01/08 and will be available for adoption afterwards. Sam will most probably lose his leg due to the extended damages to his paw joints but we are sure he will feel even better getting rid of that dead weight. He is a beautiful black pug that loves his second chance at life thanks to PH. Sam loves car rides, going up and down the house stairs, and will sit or dance for treats.

ShermanPH ID: #6189
Sherman is a 13 year old man found wandering all alone. He has seen the vet and is now on medication for his severe arthritis and had a dental that ended with him missing 29 teeth (we pulled 10). He is neutered and heartworm negative.

This is a talkative, gentle, sweet man. He gets along well with the other pugs in my house.

His face is glorious and his eyes will melt your heart.

SpankyPH ID: #6195
Spanky is your typical happy playful puppy! Cute as a button, about 14-15 weeks old, and healthy. Spanky is a Velcro pug and loves to be next to his people as much as possible, he is very loving. Spanky loves to play with toys and his foster siblings! Spanky is doing well on house training and crate training as well as some basic obedience. He catches onto new things quickly and does great once he’s in a routine. He will need his last round of puppy booster shots and a neuter in about a month, so I would imagine he should be ready for his new family late March. He will make a fantastic addition to his new family.

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.

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?



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?

TrumanPH ID: #6045
Meet Truman! Truman is about 8 years old, he’s a small little guy, but with a big heart and playful spirit! He loves to roll around in blanket and chew on toy. He gets along well with most dogs, he’s not a fan of big dogs. He has limited vision, but learns his way quickly with his hearing. He is learning a crate, but isn’t a great fan. He loves to sleep in the big bed with his humans, but has to have his last few minutes of being feisty just before settling in! He is super cute, and has the best head tilt! He will be neutered in September, and will he ready for his own family!

TumblePH ID: #4878
Tumble is a 10 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.

TwinklePH ID: #6170
Meet Twinkle!

Twinkle was surrendered with her two brothers, Chip and Ralphie. Like her siblings, Twinkle came in with a healing ulcer, which has left a scar but no vision loss on her eye. Twinkle loves snuggling with her foster siblings and plays non stop with all of her toys. Twinkle is only 15 weeks, so she has ever good and bad habit that a puppy does. She needs a large amount of chew toys to keep her busy and loves car rides for new adventures. Twinkle is working hard on her house training, but she still really prefers using the puddle pads. She has learned how to use the doggy door, but for now it’s more to play outside instead of doing her business. Twinkle has a bit of a body personality and at a times will act out if she can’t get her way. She loves cuddling with her foster mommy and can’t wait for her own mommy or daddy to cuddle with.

TyronePH ID: #6209
Foster Tyrone is a sweet as they come! He is a 9 yr old Bugg (Boston Terrier and Pug) and HW positive. Tyrone gets along great with other dogs and humans. He will give you the biggest snuggles and showering you with Kisses. He is not a fan of the Felines so any house without them would be perfect. He is crate trained and potty trained but loves the bed and couch. Tyrone is a very calm chill guy who still loves to play with toys. He would make a perfect addition to any household who loves the perfect snuggle partner.

ViggoPH ID: #6229
1 yr old Viggo comes to us from a shelter, he was found as a stray, with a broken front leg (we assume hit by a car). He spent 2 weeks at the vet to have surgery and get the swelling under control.

His recovery will be a process, but once he's full healed, and has his neuter, he will be available for adoption.

He is SO sweet. All he wants is belly rubs & to be loved.

ZekePH ID: #6208
Little boy Zeke is just the perfect sweet, cuddle puggy ever. He came to PugHearts as an owner surrender due to lifestyle changes of his previous family. He is 16 months old, cutest face with wrinkles fit for a prince and the perfect curly tail. Zeke is extra special in every way, his urinary system produces struvite crytals and calcium oxalates that makes him prone to UTI and bladder/ kidney stone so he is eating special food for that. But other than that, this litttle boy is the perfect pug for humans, big and small. And other canine.
