ArthurPH ID: #6238
Arthur is a 3-year-old fawn Male. He is heartworm negative and will be available after his neuter in late March 2020. He is crate trained and is working on his house training which should improve after his neuter. He gets along well and is learning to play with his other friends at the home. Arthur is a large, beautiful boy that loves to sit near his person. Arthur would be good as an only dog or as companion to other dogs. Come meet this beautiful boy at an event!

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
Baby is a 6 year old, heartworm negative female. She is very devoted to her people and will follow you from room to room waiting to get back in your lap for cuddles.

This happy little girl is a joy and you will be missing out if you are not her lucky family.


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.

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

BaxterPH ID: #6268
Full Description Coming Soon!

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.

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!

Billy GenePH ID: #6258
Hi y'all Billy Gene here. I was taken to a shelter with a huge gash on my neck. I was there for a little over 5 weeks, before I healed enough to leave. I'm still skinny, but I'm now getting regular feeding and FoMo says I'm gaining weight. I'm a winky. My foster Mom thinks I'm about 6 years old. I'm good with other dogs and kids. I'm learning to play with toys. I love to be with my human. I have to have my neuter and intake exam before I'm ready to go. I am interviewing families to spend the rest of my life with. Will that be you?

BrandonPH ID: #6254
Full Description Coming Soon!

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.

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!

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.

DuchessPH ID: #5281
Duchess is a 7 ish black female. Duchess is a super loving girl. She is almost constantly next to me or on my lap, a velco pug. She goes outside to potty but she is not lounging around on the patio like the others, she is ready to come right back in the house.

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.

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!

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.

FrazierPH ID: #6266
Please Welcome Frazier to PugHearts. He was surrendered with his brother Niles due to a death in the family. We’ll be evaluating over the next week to see if they are bonded. Frazier is a happy guy, and probably one of the loudest pugs I’ve had. I know he’ll be more comfortable once his nares and palate are done. He’ll need to be neutered prior to adoption as well.

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.

GoliathPH ID: #6227
Please help me welcome this big hunk of love, Goliath, to PugHearts! His name suits him perfectly too! At 40 lbs. of pure awesomeness, we are going to work on slimming this big guy down a just few pounds to get him to a more healthier weight. Goliath is a 6 yr old male who is an owner surrender at no fault of his own. He has some skin issues being treated with antibiotics , he is HW- and will be ready for adoption after his neuter surgery which is scheduled for mid-March, we are also monitoring him for possible seizures, which can also be treated and managed by meds if necessary. He’s house trained, he knows some pretty awesome tricks, and is fantastic with children and other dogs. So glad you are here Goliath, now let’s go find you your forever family!

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.

IsadoraPH ID: #6236
Isadora was surrendered to PugHearts due to family changes in her home, where they could no longer care for her. She is a beautiful 8 month old little girl with the cutest smile and prettiest white teeth. She needs a family who is patient with her, because isadora gets scared in new surroundings. Once she feels comfortable, she will shower you with kisses and cuddle next to you on the couch. Isadora gets along great with all of her foster siblings, but even that took her a little time to feel comfortable. She loves playing with toys and running around the yard. Keep in mind that Isadora is only 8 months old, so she still has lots of puppy traits. She is mostly puddle pad and house trained, and we’re working on doggy door training as well. Isadora would do best in a home with another young dog that she can spend time with and play with. She loves barking and talking to you, so her family needs to realize that she can be loud. Once she’s spayed, Isadora will be ready to find her forever home.

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

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

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

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

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

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.

JuniperPH ID: #6191
Juniper, known as June Bug, came to PugHearts when she was just 7 weeks old with her mother Trinity. They were both surrendered from a backyard breeding situation in the Rio Grand Valley. Juniper is a Chug, a Chihuahua and Pug mix. She has all the markings of a fawn pug, with a little longer nose and ears that do whatever they want. Sometimes they’re both down, sometimes both up, and at times they switch from one side to the other. However they are, they add to little June Bug’s fun personality. Over the last few months it’s been a joy to watch this scared little baby came out of her shell and essentially rule the house. She loves playing with toys, bones, other dogs. June Bug loves playing fetch with tennis balls in the backyard, and she chases butterflies and dragonflies too. She would do great in a home with children and other young dogs. Once she’s spayed, June Bug will be ready to find a home of her own.

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

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

MonroePH ID: #6163
Please let me introduce Monroe. She's 2 yrs old, came to us very pregnant and gave birth to 7 beautiful puppies NYE. She is a beagle mix and just look at those brown eyes and curly tail! She was such a good mom to her puppies but now she gets to enjoy being a dog! Best attributes of Lady Monroe - house-trained! She will need her spay next month, but you can get your apps in right now for this awesome dog! Stay tuned as her journey from Houston street dog to cherished pet continues

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.

NatashaPH ID: #6052
Natasha came to PugHearts with a HUGE mass on her side just behind her front leg.

Due to the size and location, the removal was not complete.

She is hospice due to the likelihood of recurrence and rapid growth of her tumors.

NedPH ID: #6199
Ned is a 2-year-old neutered male Chug (Chihuahua/Pug Mix). He is Heartworm negative and current on all his vaccinations. He was found wandering all alone. Ned was resourceful and found hiding places to escape larger dogs and he convinced the area warehouse workers to give him some scraps. He is wily like that. He was getting by, but just barely and super skinny (what growing boy can live on scraps alone). At some point he sustained an eye injury, not enough to warrant removal, but enough to notice he has a good eye and an evil eye (LOL). I say this because it is the eye he gives me when I don’t feed him fast enough, or promptly address his demands for the throwing of the toy, which he thinks is my life priority (and he is cute so it is my priority). His personality appears to be more Chihuahua than Pug. He isn’t all that interested in treats and has spit them out…no self-respecting Pug has ever rejected a treat…..blasphemy! He is an excellent guard dog, which must be a Chihuahua thing as well, because the Pug grumble he is currently with likely open the door and let robbers in……well, the Pugs reason, they might have said treats Mom. Ned has come a long way in the 6 weeks he has been in foster care. He was literally running wild, but now sleeps in the big people bed, gets 2 square meals a day, gets to chase toys/fetch relentlessly, and is learning commands such as sit, wait, off, on, and no. He needs to work on come and can be stubborn about coming to you when called by name, but he does know his name. He initially would not come to anyone and I couldn’t pick him up or even catch him. Now he sits with me and the grumble on the sofa, I can pick him up and give him kisses (occasionally he will give me a kiss in return), and he will roll around and let me scratch his belly. We are working on some biting issues, but he has only been in foster care for a little under two months so he has already made major progress. He would be especially well suited to a person with Chihuahua experience as I think he has more of that breed behavior and energy.

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!

NilesPH ID: #6267
Please welcome Niles to PugHearts. He was surrendered because of a death in the family! This boy is 5 years old and comes in with his older brother Frazier. He’ll go in soon for his intake exam, but so far I can tell he needs to be neutered and have his nares done. He’s adorable and I’ll be working to see if they’re bonded.

NinaPH ID: #6247

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

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

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

Medical hold and then pending adoption with his foster Mom.

OrchidPH ID: #6263
Orchid is a nine week old female puppy with beautiful brindle coloring. She came in with her litter mates and mom, Lavender. Orchid loves to play, gets along with bigger dogs, and enjoys her food. She will be available once she is spayed.

OzzyPH ID: #6156
Ozzy came into our rescue from a south Texas animal shelter, after he was found as a stray.

He was determined to be around 10 years old. He was quite underweight and entered our rescue with a number of health issues.

So who is this little guy Ozzy? He is a perfect little dog. He is beautifully potty trained, has not had one accident in the house. He learned the dog door quickly.

He gets along with all of the animals in our home. Loves to be held and sleep in my lap. Will snuggle close to you in bed.

AND he is a talker! He will let me know what he wants through a series of yips and out right screams. And what he usually wants is food. He is a hoot! He is such a delightful little companion.

Ozzy is heartworm positive and is scheduled for treatment. After that, this little 10 year old dog who acts like a youthful one year old will be ready to join his forever family.

UPDATE: Ozzy just had his heartworm treatment and is in crate rest for 4 weeks.

PaisleyPH ID: #6232
Paisley is an 8-10 month old Pug/Boston Terriermix and came to us from a breeder. She is a perfectly healthy brindle with a very soft and fluffy coat. She is very much still a puppy though quickly learning to be young lady. She loves to play with our two kids and other dog. She does naw like a puppy but is learning to ‘play nice’ more and more each day along with learning a few commands, and is also house/ crate trained. While the puppy in her doesn’t allow her to sit and cuddle for very long right now, she absolutely loves hugs while sitting perched on your shoulder. She is not timid, but very happy and excited most of the time. Treats hold her attention very well while working and training, and she is a very good girl while going on walks. Paisley will make a wonderful addition to a family with or without other pets and kids.

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

A little strange but I answer to it.

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

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

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

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

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

She will make the perfect addition to any family, and is looking forward to being the princess of her own castle.

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. He has his signature sploots and will demand belly rubs by getting into a back sploot. Romeo has a beautiful black coat and loves to give kisses. Romeo is heartworm negative and will ready for adoption after his neuter surgery on March 2nd. He is crate trained and is working on potty training in his foster home. Don’t wait to put in your application because this boy will be pending before you know it!

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.

SassyPH ID: #6241
Meet Ms. Sassy a beautiful senior at 10 years young.

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.

SuttonPH ID: #6246
Sutton is a stunning 2.5 year-old fawn Male. He came to PugHearts after his family moved and was unable to take him with them. He is heartworm negative and will be available after his neuter in April 2020. He is crate trained and is working on his house training which should improve after his neuter. He gets along well and is learning to play with his other friends at the home. Sutton is a large, beautiful boy that loves to sit near his person.

TazPH ID: #3254

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.

TessaPH ID: #6132

Tessa came to PugHearts from San Antonio back in November as a 7 week old puppy with a prolapsed rectum. A prolapse will typically occur in puppies that haven’t been properly dewormed, causing severe diarrhea. A purse string was put in by the vet in San Antonio prior to her transport to Houston.

What is a purse string? Think of it as a drawstring in her rectum to hold her insides in, similar to holding the contents of a bag in place. This is so important because the longer that the bowls are out, the more necrotic the tissue becomes.

The purse string stayed in for 2 weeks and less than 48 hours after it was out, Tessa prolapsed again. She was rushed back to our vet to have an additional purse string. This is when we assumed the problem was bigger than we thought and it was discovered that Tessa has no muscle tone in her rectum. This purse string stayed in for 3 weeks, and this time she prolapsed less than 24 hours from removal. I became quite versed in pushing her colon back inside her body every time she prolapsed, until her emergency surgery was performed the following day.

Dr. Hendrix performed a Coloplexy on Tessa, essentially pulling and tacking the colon to the abdominal wall and leaving no room for an additional prolapse to occur.

Since this surgery, we have been finding out all the additional problems Tessa has, and assume she born with this defect. She has a total collapse of the 7th vertebrae leading into her pelvis causing nerve damage to the colon, which also gives her a funny gait and a spastic neurogenic colon. She has the urge to poop all the time, and will posture constantly with some, little or nothing coming out. It ends up on her, the other dogs, me and the wall on occasion. She has to have her anal glands manually expressed on a weekly basis because her body can’t do it. She will never be able to jump on and off the furniture or use stairs. There’s mornings that I want to scream and cry while I’m scrubbing poop, but then I see her and everything is worth it.

We’ve treated her with prednisone and metronidazole to no avail, and we currently have her on Tylan which has helped the consistency be more formed. She is on a strict diet of GI high energy wet food and Biome

If Tessa hadn’t found her way to PugHearts, she would not be here. There is no information on treating this condition because most dogs would have died or been euthanized. PugHearts is fighting for Tessa and we are doing everything that we can to help her. It’s not cheap, Her dog food is almost $80 a bag, but this little baby deserves the best. SLPH accepts manufacturers coupons for the Hill’s Science Diet food, if you’d like to donate those at the clinic. I had $15 worth today!

Today Tessa had her last booster. At this point, most puppies would be ready for adoption. Tessa is not. We’ve concluded that Tessa might not ever be adoptable, but we also aren’t calling her hospice. It’s unknown what Tessa might have to tackle next and with Pughearts and me as her foster, we will be ready to take on anything, but it’s not a burden we want future adopters to have to face.

Tessa is my baby. She is spoiled rotten just like she’s suppose to be. She spends the majority of her day being held or in my lap, and sleeps every night curled around my neck.

Please consider donating to Tessa’s care. She deserves the world and PugHearts is going to give it to her

TiggerPH ID: #6215
Tigger, also know as Tyson is a beautiful 2 year old boy found wondering the streets in the Valley. After months of searching for his family, Tigger was turned over to PugHearts. Luckily they did because Tigger is heartworm positive and has an old wound on his back. Despite being a ‘street dog,’ Tigger is the sweetest, most loving hunk of pug. He’s working on both crate and house training, and wants to please me so bad, which makes the training easy. Tigger sleeps cuddled up next to me every night, and knows the exact crate to go to a meal times. He loves his foster siblings and playing with toys. Once Tigger is neutered and finishes his heartworm treatment, Tigger will be ready to find his forever home!

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?

TrinityPH ID: #6192
Trinity is a beautiful black 2 year old girl from the Valley weighing only 12 pounds. Trinity was surrendered with her 8 week old chug puppy named Juniper.

Despite only being 2 years old, Trinity has lived a rough life being a breeder dog. She’s lived outside most of her life, which unfortunately means she’s severe heartworm positive. She has hips that dislocate from a defect she was born with, and when she was spayed, our vet described her as having an old, overused uterus. After showing signs of pain, x-rays revealed that Trinity was more than likely hit by a car early in her life which has caused severe damage to her back. She is currently taking Rimadyl twice daily and it has helped tremendously with her movement and pain. Trinity can run and bark and go absolutely crazy now when she’s playing with her foster siblings.

Once Trinity has finished her heartworm treatment, she will be ready to find her forever 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!

TuckerPH ID: #6251
Tucker is an adorable Pug mix. We are pretty sure he is a Dawg (Weiner Pug)! He is 3 years old and heartworm negative. He spent his whole life alone in a doghouse, but he’s out of the dog house now and ready to live the life he was born to live! He is great with kids as well as other dogs. He loves going on walks, and he is great on a leash. He is just the right amount of playful. He will be ready for adoption following his neuter!

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.

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.
