Aaron FranklinPH ID: #5965
Aaron Franklin comes to PugHearts with broken legs on the left front and left rear legs, as well as several pelvic fractures.

While we are not sure how they happened, we know that at 10 weeks, he is too young to have had to endure that much pain already.

The vet has done surgery and placed plates on the bones in both legs and we are hopeful that he will have a great recovery and bright future.

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

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

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

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

AllenPH ID: #5922
Full Description Coming Soon!

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

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

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

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

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

ArbucklePH ID: #5950
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.

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!

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

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

BerniePH ID: #5946
Bernie is an 18 month old puppy who was surrendered to us by his owners due to no fault of his own. He is happy, playful and dog friendly, although he is more interested in being with his human than with 4 legged playmates. His flea bite dermatitis is resolving and he has been brought up to date on his vaccinations and will be neutered at the end of May. Bernie loves toys, snuggles and is learning appropriate boundaries quickly. Housebreaking is a work in progress until after his neuter but he is a very smart, social boy who is quite well-behaved for his age.

Adoption pending

BettyPH ID: #5933
Full Description Coming Soon!

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

BlainePH ID: #5945
Full Description Coming Soon!

BoomerPH ID: #5949
Boomer is a 1 year old black male. He is heartworm negative and scheduled to be neutered.

Boomer is a pug lover's unicorn. He is young, 1 year old, housebroken, good in the crate, well-mannered, and just the right amount of puppy. He is very affectionate, gets along well with the other dogs, likes to be near his humans, and is obedient. He is healthy, and he will be ready for adoption after his neuter in early June.

BraxtonPH ID: #5962
Braxton is a young male that comes to PugHearts looking for a safe and loving place to call home.

Bruce 5PH ID: #5912
Full Description Coming Soon!

BrynnPH ID: #5928
Foster Brynn came to us from BARC. She was 5 weeks old when she arrived, weighed 2 pounds, had mange and was totally blind because her eyes had ruptured. She gained some weight and they were able to remove her eyes after she gained up to 3 pounds. She can’t begin the meds for mange until she get up to 4 pounds.

But let me tell you, Brynn doesn’t let anything get in her way of enjoying life. She is constantly happy with a wagging tail. She loves her bully stick and lets her stuffed Lamb Chop know who is the boss.

Brynn will be with us for several months so she isn’t available for adoption until she’s at least 4 months old.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

CalliopePH ID: #5906

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

CassiePH ID: #5930
Cassie is a 5 year old girl with beautiful, soulful eyes. She adores her humans, and although she does ok with other dogs, she had a bit of alpha tendencies, but not to the point that she needs to be an only dog. Although I think she’d be perfectly happy either way. She’s completely housebroken and healthy. She is quirky and sweet, and thinks her tail is out to get her, so likes to chase it! If you’re looking for someone to be completely devoted to you, you need to meet Cassie!

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

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

ChloePH ID: #5926
Chloe is a seven-year-old adorable Fawn Female. She is an owner surrender through no fault of her own. She is heartworm negative, spayed and has had all her shots. She is kennel trained and house trained. She is a happy little gal. Chloe is like most pugs and wants to be near her person. She gets along well with the other fosters at her foster home. She will play a bit and loves to put on her harness and go for an outing. She is currently being treated for an infection but should be ready for adoption in early May.

Chloe came to Pughearts with her buddy Nemo. They are still being evaluated to determine if they are bonded and need to be adopted together. They get along well but do not mind being separated.

ClementinePH ID: #5879
Oh my darling Clementine indeed! She is a sweet and vivacious 2 year old tiny puggie who will steal your heart! She is one perfect pug – she is very devoted to you [#1 cuddler], great with kids and dogs, will sit for her food, waits patiently for her food [no barking to demand food], and uses a doggy door. Sadly, Sweet Clementine is heartworm posditive and will have to go through heartworm treatment rior to adoption.

If you are interested in Clementine, please put in your application at www.pughearts.com!

ConnerPH ID: #5864
Connor is a 1 year old adorable Fawn Male. He is heartworm negative, has had all his shots and is scheduled to be neutered. He is kennel trained and house trained. His favorite thing is following his person and laying as close as he can. He likes to play with toys! He wants to play with Billy the cat, but Billy won’t have it. Come meet this guy at an event!

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.

DollyPH ID: #5914
Dolly is PugHearts resident tripod sensation! She came from the Rio Grande Valley after being turned in to a shelter there to be euthanized due to injuries. When Dolly arrived at PugHearts, she had a horrible dislocation to her front wrist as well as complete de-gloving of the skin. We assume it was an injury sustained from being hit by a car, and she had been in this condition for 2-3 weeks. Her other 3 legs had lost muscle and range motion, and walking at all was a challenge. After much consideration and work, Dolly had her hurt front leg amputated and has made a complete recovery. She’s already mastered jumping onto furniture and going up the stairs, and everyday she amazes us with her incredible spirit and new abilities. It appears from x-rays that her jaw was broken several years ago, and never repaired, but it has healed itself and doesn’t cause her any discomfort, only a crooked smile that we’ve all grown to love. It’s Dolly’s trademark! We estimate her age to be 8 years old. Unfortunately Dolly is heartworm positive, which means she won’t be available for adoption until the end of the summer, but don’t wait to get your applications in. This is one special girl!

DuchessPH ID: #5903
Duchess is a true treasure. She’s 9 years old and has the most magnificent personality and is in great health. She’s very loving and is always by my side. and will totally make someone’s life the best it can be. She loves to be held and pet. She also has a little quirk that I find cute, when I pick her up she puts her paws on my shoulder and nibbles my ear lobe. If she sounds like the perfect fit for your home let your adoption coordinator know. But be warned, Duchess is going to knock your socks off.

EllaPH ID: #5931
Ella is 5 years old fawn pug mix and is heartworm negative. She is part of a bonded pair with Emma. She was recently spayed. She is very sweet and patient. She loves to play with toys. She is house trained and crate trained. These girls are really sweet together and love to snuggle.

EmmaPH ID: #5932
Emma is 5 years old black pug and is heartworm negative. She is part of a bonded pair with Ella. She was recently spayed. She is very sweet and take charge kind of girl. She loves to play with Ella and takes care of her. She is house trained and crate trained. These girls are really sweet together and love to snuggle.

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)

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

FelixPH ID: #5579
Felix is an 11 year old male that came to PugHearts in desperate need of a dental. He lost 16 teeth in that dental and is now feel SO MUCH better.

He is heartworm negative and neutered.

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

Floella LynnPH ID: #5811
Yes, Aaron named another one!

Foster Floella Lynn is one of the coolest pugs I’ve had. She’s ~10 years old and is pretty much perfect. She’s house trained, doesn’t bark and is such a lady. She just sits and just stares at me with those beautiful eyes. She has such a great personality, one of the very best I’ve ever had in 11+ years of fostering, and is so much fun. Seriously a great pug

She is supposed to be hearing impaired but I really think she hears me. When I call her she perks up her ears and comes to me. At the event last week I called her and she came right over to me. There are times that I really wouldn’t be surprised if she responded to me, she just looks like she knows exactly what I’m saying to her. And she's squishy, I love squishy, just look at her face. She is going to be such a good addition to some lucky person's life.

FrankiePH ID: #5941
Foster Frankie will still your hearts ladies and gents! Lets see where can I begin, he is crate trained , eats slowly definitely not like a Pug, potty trained- not one accident in the house with a belly band on, loves to cuddle next to you or goes on top of the couch to take a nap. He doesn’t seem high energy at all but time will tell this week if it changes. He is 18 mos and Neutered and is definitely the most Gorgeous Pug I have seen. His coat is Beautiful and walks well on the leash. More posts to come on this Beautiful Boy, but sadly to say I won’t have him long because to see him in person your Heart ?? will melt, so I am enjoying him while I can. He is not ready yet , he has to be evaluated and checked in Tuesday and hopefully not heartworm positive. The one who gets this boy will be one lucky person.

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.

FridaPH ID: #5662
Frida is a sweet gentle 5 year old pug mix that comes to us from a local ER. She appears to have been hit by a car and sustained trauma to her eye. The eye was not able to be saved and was removed to make her comfortable.

She was heartworm positive and did well in treatment. She is now cleared.

Foster Frida is her name. Being smart and snuggly is her game. Seriously, this happy 5 year old snuggle bug is super smart, perfect in the house, crate trained, and gets along with everyone. She’s clearly a mix, possibly pug mixed with perfection and maybe a bit of chihuahua. Tonight I wanted to transition her to a different crate in a different spot now that she no longer needs her halo (cone of shame). All I did was toss her slept on blankie into the different crate. She figured it all out on her own and happily entered and snuggled in for the night. Frida is such a good girl and holds no grudges for losing her eye in a car accident. She will be keeping an eye out for her furever family while she undergoes heartworm treatment.

Don’t you want to experience the wonderful Life with Frida?

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.

GloryPH ID: #5921
Glory came to PugHearts as an owner surrender to no fault of her own at just six months of age. She was critically ill and injured which required two weeks of hospitalization to stabilize her before going to a foster home. She has amazingly surprised us all and is now thriving. Her eye is healing, she is gaining weight, and enjoying life as the puppy she was meant to be. Glory will require more surgery in the future and will continue to have a long road to full recovery. She is still writing her story but she has fought with the spirit of a warrior princess to overcome so much in so little time.

Stay to tune for more updates on her unbelievable recovery on Facebook, twitter, and Instagram.

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

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

HankPH ID: #5955
Meet new Foster Hank or “Hank the Hunk” or “Hank the Tank” as my Foster Mom keeps calling me. I’m about 7 years old and already neutered! I’m a mature adult that goes with the flow, doesn’t chew things and I am house-trained! One of the benefits of adopting adult!

Unfortunately I do have a few other issues that PugHearts will help me clear up and manage - dry eye (daily eye drops) and some vision loss, but I don’t let that slow me down, I get around just fine! I will get my nose fixed so I can breathe easier, my minor allergy & skin issues will be taken care of and lastly I will have to undergo treatment for those nasty heart worms.

I imagine I will be ready to find my new home late summer or early fall pending the completion of my heartworm treatment.

IgorPH ID: #5908
Igor is a sweet neutered male who was rescued from being dumped at a shelter by a good samaritan who got him to PugHearts. He is approximately 7 years old, but seems to have lived a rough life so far. He is mostly blind due to dry eye and needs eye drops once a day for life. He also has suspected spondylosis meaning that his movement is a little stiff. Thankfully, he is heartworm negative. Now that he is with PugHearts he is getting used to the good life. He is house trained and crate trained and gets along well with other dogs, adults and kids. He loves to snuggle up next to you and burrow his face into your arm. He has even started gently owing at us for attention. We are looking forward to getting to know him better as we get his health issues under control so he is ready for his forever home soon.

IrvingPH ID: #5888
Meet Irving. He was surrendered to Pughearts from Mississippi following his owners death. Irving is a sweet 11 year old man. He seems to be a little distant compared to other pugs but in the last few days he has started to walk up to me when I’m on the couch and let me pet him, he’s still not down with being held. His favorite pastime is sleeping on the doggie bed. Irving had some issues with seizures and is now on meds that have completely stopped them. He probably won’t answer to Irving when he’s adopted, for some unknown reason that only my brain can explain, every time I call him I call for Joe, so that’s probably what he’s going to think is his name. He’s such a sweet old guy and I know he’s so totally confused about what has happened to his life. He’s going to settle in to a home and be a great companion for a quiet, low activity home.

IsabellaPH ID: #5938
Full Description Coming Soon!

Jd 3PH ID: #5956
JD comes to PugHearts with a severe case of untreated Demodex (non-contagious) mange. He is 18 months old and will be neutered once his skin has healed enough.

He is heartworm negative and LOVES to play.

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!

She is also a pretty decent couch potato, where she likes to get her back scratched. She has one of the softest coats I've ever seen so she gets her back scratched a lot! She is a super sweet dog who gets along great with my two-legged boys and my middle-age alpha pug. She's not real fond of our one year old puppy, there's a lot going on there!

No accidents at all since she came into my home, and she gets along great with my grumble. She's super smart, and sits for her treats and meals. She will talk to you if you're not quick enough with setting her bowl on the floor, and will grumble at you the whole time until you do. She also chortles at you when she wants some extra attention.

Penny is not your typical pug in that she has springs for legs. I have baby gates all over the house, and she has jumped over every single one of them! She clears them easily, and looks like she's training for the Olympics. She does this to try and find me, and has not been destructive at all. She's a joy to have in the house.

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.

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.

RustyPH ID: #5823
Rusty is a 7 year old brindle male pug mix who comes to us from a shelter in Mississippi. Unfortunately, he is heartworm positive, so he will be ready for adoption after his treatment in March. He is fully house and crate trained and gets along well with our other dogs. Rusty's favorite pastimes are climbing to the highest spot on our couch to watch what is happening out the window and stealing the human's office chair for a bed when he goes to work. He loves to snuggle and dances on his hind legs for food. Rusty currently lives with a three year old human foster brother, but he would prefer a forever home with just adults or older kids as he doesn't like it when the toddler gets noisy or hyper.

ShamusPH ID: #5911
Shamus is an awesome one year old Pug! He comes to PugHearts as an owner surrender due to changes at home. Shamus loves kids, is good with other dogs, and loves to sleep in his foster mom’s bed at night. He is crate trained but will occasionally have accidents, so we’re still working on potty training. Shamus knows how to use the doggie door and loves playing in the backyard. Shamus is a small Pug with a big personality and lots of love to give!! Image

ShaniaPH ID: #5916
Shania's story is sad and horrifying. She was kept outside in a cage with no human contact and only used for breeding for 4 years. This is literally all she has ever known her whole life. When we brought her home her skin was in an awful shape, she was anemic from all the ticks found on her, she was of course heartworm positive and she was so scared we couldn't get her out of the kennel. It took weeks to get her to a happy place but once she got there there was no going back!

Shania is fully potty trained, she goes a million miles an hour running through the house, gets along with everyone and only plays with the dogs that welcome it back. She will kiss you to death if you don't pet her. I honestly think she's catching up on all the love she missed out in the first 4 years of her life. She would be fantastic in a home with another playful dog or in a home where the owner was wanting to give her ALL the attention. She is extremely attached and loving. She gets very scared when anyone raises their voice even if it's not at her but she's getting more and more confident every day. She is a great girl and will make some lucky family really happy. She needs to go through heartworm treatment but should be available this summer.

SonyaPH ID: #5940
Sonya is about 7 years old, but she still feels like she’s 2! Playful, silly, and happy, this girl just wants to be with her people. She smiles all the time and follows you wherever you go. She would prefer someone who is home a lot, and maybe even a playmate, if she had a choice. She bonds heavily to her chosen person. She gets along with most dogs and cats and small animals. She has the perfect pug face and squishy, wrinkly body. She is house trained, loves mealtime, does well on car rides, hates the crate, and would prefer to sleep with you. She does have spondylosis and slipped discs in several vertebrae of her back, and likely arthritis in her hips, but really, they barely slow her down. She does sometimes have a bit of a sway to her walk, and sometimes favors her left back leg. These issues may become more painful in the future, but today she is playful and happy and you’d never know she had any spinal or hip issues. She also recently had a mass removed from her left hip area, so she’s growing back fur there, but thankfully it wasn’t anything serious. She’s just as playful as she was before the surgery.

SterlingPH ID: #5557
Sterling is a senior gentleman left at a local shelter. He is estimated to be 14 years old, has a severe ear infection and other neurological problems we are starting to address.

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

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

SybilPH ID: #5638
Sybil comes to us from Mississippi

Sybil is a resilient puppy mill survivor and a true sweetheart. This wonderful 12 year old girl LOVES people, other dogs, snuggles, cuddles, and will follow you everywhere! She is slightly vision impaired, but has excellent hearing. She is potty trained, crate trained, and heartworm negative. Don’t miss out on this senior lady with a heart of gold. What a great little buddy!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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



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

She is heartworm negative and already spayed.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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