AbigailPH ID: #5445
Abigail was found wandering all alone. She comes to PugHearts with many medical issues that need to be addressed and treated.

This pretty girl with not be available for several months, but she is SO worth the wait.

Abigail charmed the transporter and they will be waiting for her to be ready to join their family forever. Congratulations to Ruth and family.

AnniePH ID: #5431
Annie is an 8 year old female.

She is heartworm negative and spayed.

Annie is an 8 year old owner surrender. She’s HW- and spayed. She had a HUGE bladder stone removed and eats Royal Canin Urinary SO (prescription food) for the rest of her life to prevent crystals and stones from forming again. She will have a dental cleaning, and entropion and episioplasty procedures and will be ready to adopt around the beginning of March.

Annie is a very special pug. She knows a lot of great tricks like rolling over, high-five, and she can twirl. She is crate trained and hasn’t had any accidents indoors or in her crate. If she has to potty, she lets her foster parents know by whining at the back door. She gets along well with her foster grumble and would also do well as an only dog. She loves stuffed toys, rope bones, and Nylabones. She might be 8 years old but acts like a dog half her age! Annie makes a wonderful companion and is deserving of her own forever home!


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

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

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

Austin has completed his heartworm treatment!

BaileyPH ID: #5464
Sweet Bailey is a 9 year old female. She comes to PugHearts due to changes in her former home. She is having some blood in her urine and will be seen by the vet.

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

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

From Bambi's foster: Greetings, my name is Bambi and my bonded mate is Ray, we come as a pair. We lost our loving home when our owner suddenly passed away. Because we are different breeds, me being a Pug/Brussels Griffon and Ray being a French Bulldog we went to separate Rescue organizations and after numerous weeks of us trying to adjust it was clear we both needed to be back together, so here we are two peas in a pod.

I am a beautiful Pug/Brussels Griffon southern girl that has impeccable manners. I am beautifully house-trained, crate trained and also dog friendly. Neither Ray or myself have any destructive behavior what so ever. I enjoy sniffing around the yard, occasional sunbathing, rolling in the plush green grass, sleeping on the couch and I loves treats too! I am not much for for toys or playing, but more the timid, loving, gentle wall flower type personality. We would both flourish in a less active, calm home with someone who is home most of the time. We currently do not share a home with children and the hustle and bustle of children would be to much us.

Ray is a quite a handsome fellow, if I do say so myself. Ray is also very dog friendly and often lets the tiny Chihuahua's in his foster home lay right up on top of his back. Ray occasionally plays with squeaky toys when he is feeling frisky, but really enjoys patrolling the perimeter of his fenced backyard and napping the day away. Ray too is house trained and does best on a regular potty schedule.

We both love to follow you around the house as you do your daily chores and we are content sleeping in the bedroom at our foster home on those thick orthopedic beds. Best part, you won't hear a peep out of us all night, well ok, maybe a little snoring from Bambi, but Ray doesn't snore at all.

We hope you won't pass us by because we aren't young pups, we will bring sunshine to your home daily and we would be very grateful for a forever home. Don't wait a moment longer to apply for this sweet couple!

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

She is heartworm negative and dealing with a bladder infection.

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

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

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

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

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

BonniePH ID: #5468
Bonnie is a sweet 2 year old puggle that comes to us from a local shelter.

She will be seen by the vet and we will update soon.

BoomerPH ID: #5455
Meet Boomer! Sweet Boomer’s family fell on hard times. It was a very emotional surrender as they had been evicted. He comes to PugHearts very well taken care of. This beautiful chug is young, energetic, well behaved (good house manners), snuggly and has the cutest toof! He really misses his family. He prefers to snuggle up next to my husband. He gets along great with my pugs and silly Mr. Ted. Team PugHearts got him to Houston and he will be seen by our vet. This guy will not last long.

BrucePH ID: #4713
Bruce is a 16 year old male owner surrender.


From Bruce (with some help from his foster): Bruce here and let me tell you I have been having fun getting lots of snuggles and love from foster mom. My short legs may fool a few but I still get around but not as good as I used I going on 17 years old. I love my naps and my food boy do I love my food and treats. HW negative, get along well with other dogs and ready for a forever home. I Have lost a most sight and hearing but you know how it is as we get older but I can still here when foster mom calls my name and can see her hand me a treat. Did I tell you I love my treats. If you are comfortable with a guy who is laid back and a little slow then I am your guy.

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

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

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

BumblePH ID: #5425
Bumble is a young fawn male that comes to PugHearts looking for someone to care for him and treat him as he should always have been treated. Thos sweet happy boy is severe heartworm positive and will have to go through treatment prior to adoption.

Foster Bumble has had a little time to settle in and he’s doing great. He’s such a fun guy. He’s 18 months old so he’s active and playful but in a super good way. He LOVES balls and will carry them all over the house. All this and he’s handsome too, he’s a total package. He has HW so he will be ready for adoption in the Spring but you should consider putting him at the top of your list.

Pending adoption!

BusterPH ID: #5418
Buster is a 12 year old blind male.

Sadly, his owner and best friend passed away and he was left with no one to care for him.

Thankfully, the police officer reached out to PugHearts and we went to his house and picked him up so that he did not have to spend one minute in a shelter.

He is being seen by our fantastic vets and we will update on his health soon.

He is very confused, but grateful to be warm, full and safe.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

CassPH ID: #5433
Cass is a 4 year old fawn male. He was surrendered with his blind friend Jax, whom he helps to navigate the world.

Cass is a 4 year old fawn male who was surrendered to PugHearts with his friend Jax. He is active and likes to hang out with other pugs. Cass will also follow his foster mom around the house, wanting to be near her. Cass is a happy healthy boy except for those nasty heartworms. He will have treatment soon and be ready to adopt at the end of March. He is kennel trained and house trained. When you say Kennel, he and his buddy Jax go right to the double kennel and settle in. Cass gets along with the other dogs in the house and likes to run around in the yard. I am not certain that he and Jax are bonded yet, but I know he will do well in a house with other dogs.

Pending adoption! Congrats Cass!

ClarencePH ID: #4821
Clarence is an 8 yr old male. He is heartworm positive and will have to go through heartworm treatment.

From Clarence's foster: Clarence is a sweet and gentle soul. He is a little nervous and shy around new people, but he has come a long way and will come out to greet them in his own quiet way.

Clarence likes to be with me, and he craves attention, but he doesn't like to be held much. He’d rather just lie next to me. He enjoys a good stroll around the back yard. He is good with other dogs. When he sees other dogs, he will go up to them to say ‘Hello.’ Clarence is potty trained, and he is crate trained. He currently sleeps in his crate, but he would do well sleeping with his humans in a bed, too. He was a bit underweight when he came in, but he is at a good weight now. He loves food. While you are preparing his food, he sits just outside the kitchen and waits patiently but makes the sweetest little whine that you can barely hear.

Clarence came to us heartworm positive, but he has had treatment. He has some arthritis in his hips. He is on medication for his heart due to complications from the heartworms as well as medicine (as needed) for coughing from collapsing trachea. He also needs eye drops for dry eye in his left eye.

Update July 2016: Clarence has completed his heartworm treatment and is now HW negative!

Cooter BrownPH ID: #4910
Cooter Brown (CB for short) is an 7 yr old pug mix from a local shelter.

He is heartworm negative and already neutered.

From Cooter's foster: Cooter Brown has been my foster for nearly a year now and I have to say it’s probably more my fault than his. When we attend adoption events he would rather be out of the pen than in so I end up holding him which does not attract a lot of interest so we don’t attend a lot of them. But!- when people meet him in person they love him. He is a truly great dog. He loves people and to be around his family. His favorite things are car rides, his toys, snuggling with his family and being outside. He is crate trained and potty trained, with a few mistakes here and there.

Cooter was dropped off by his previous owner at a shelter with another dog. At the last minute the owner decided to take the other dog home and leave Cooter. He was on his last day, set to be euthanized when PugHearts stepped in and saved him. He was abandoned because he likes to run out the door or an open gate when possible. In the year we have had him he has gotten a lot better. He doesn’t look for holes to dig out of or bolt every time the door is opened but he will trot off when given to chance. Since he is a boy dog, he is pretty easy to catch now because he has to pee on every tree he sees lol. In a perfect world I would like him to find a home with kids that will love and play with him or an active family that will include him in their lives.

Please don’t overlook Cooter because he is not 100% pug. He is 2000% awesome.

DantePH ID: #5453
Dante is a black pug mix from a shelter in Texas. He is heartworm negative. Poor guy came to PugHearts covered in ticks and was on the short list at the shelter.

PugHearts is happy to help this sweet happy guy.

We will update as he becomes more comfortable in his new foster home.

DaphnePH ID: #5237
Daphne is almost 4. She loves balls and her kennel. She is learning to trust, but has moments of fear. She is super fast and moves like the wind. She is not a fan of cats or children. She really likes treats but will only take them in her room.

From Daphne's foster: Single Black and white female pug mix seeking family: I am heartworm negative, spayed and had a nares surgery to help me breathe. I am all of 4 years old and cute as a button. I weigh only 11 pounds and have the shortest legs ever. Don’t think that I cant move on those little stubs cause I can move like the wind. I like long walks (weather permitting), fruit and veggies in my dinner, my crate and to cuddle up with you on the couch once I know you are safe to be with. I don’t like children, other dogs, cats or pretty much any other animal. I am scared of being hurt. I need to be the ONLY love of your life. If you think you have what it takes to love me and only me please respond to this add. I will carefully read your responses and get back to you ASAP! Until then pug hugs and kisses.

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

DelilahPH ID: #4611
Meet Delilah, 13 year old female, winky, history of collapsing trachea & toenails grown into paws. She has some lumps and bumps. We will have her evaluated by the vet. She is a bit fluffy and will be introduced to a green bean diet.

From Delilah's foster: Delilah is a sweet senior gal just looking for a quiet place to relax. Delilah came to us when her elderly owner could no longer care for her. She is so well mannered, and likes to spend most of her day snuggled on a comfy dog bed. She has no issues with our other critters and enjoys exploring around the back yard. She is 13, so does move a little slower, and has a collapsing trachea, so is on medicine to help control coughing. The sweet one-eyed girl will steal your heart!

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

We are betting everyone will want dibs on Dibs

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

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

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

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

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

DillingerPH ID: #4316
Dillinger is a 7 year old black male who was released to us immediately by a local animal control facility because of an injury to his eye. He also had a large cyst on his neck, some one-sided facial paralysis, and an underdeveloped ear. We believe all these things are related to a rare birth defect that may have contributed to his eye problems as well. He has had surgery to remove the mass and the eye, and he has flourished in foster care. He is already neutered and heartworm negative.

From Dillinger's foster: He loves stuffed toys, and will fetch & retrieve or play on his own. He has a few “tics”: he is quite reactive to noises, and will bark and spin wildly when he hears something unexpected. He has learned to go up & down three stairs to the yard on his own and to jump off the couch, but he will not jump up on the couch on his own. He must be lifted on and off the bed. He snuggles in bed and on the couch, and has started playing a bit with our one dog who also likes toys. He pretty much ignores the rest of the pack (and vice-versa), unless they get excited and bark, which will set off his spinning. He will stand on his hind paws when he wants to be picked up or to give you a toy to throw. He has a super-shiny, mostly non-shedding coat and is a very handsome, winky boy.

He would probably do better in a 1-story home without a lot of noisy young children. He is fun, entertaining and affectionate. Far from the shy, cowering boy I first met, he is a cuddly, playful youngster who may need a bit longer to acclimate to new environments than others, but is well worth the effort. He is crate trained and will wake you at night by whining if he needs to go potty.

ElsiePH ID: #5437
Elsie is a small female that comes to us with several medical issues. She has severely dry eyes (and I suspect we will start her on daily eye meds) and a bladder infection, that we have already started medication for.

She is scared and confused by all the changes in her world, but she still gives sweet kisses and wants to be held.

Pending adoption to Julia and family!

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)

FranzPH ID: #5395
Franz is a happy one year old Bugg (Boston terrier/pug mix). He is a playful little guy that has no idea he only has one eye. He can see and function just fine!! This little guy is great with other dogs and kids. He loves to chew on bones and roll around in blankets. He can nap like a champ! He loves to be in the middle of things! He is a smart boy too! He mastered the doggie door in no time and is completely potty trained. He will make a great addition!!

GenePH ID: #358
Gene is a 10 year old fawn male.

GobblePH ID: #5407
Gobble is barely 12 pounds of tiny, turkey day heaven, topped with Cinnabon tail perfection. He is the complete package. He is dinner & dessert ??.

This ADORABLE, petite fawn boy came to PugHearts on Thanksgiving Day (So. Gobble.) as an 18 month old owner surrender. He needs to be neutered & sadly, treated for heart worms. He definitely still has puppy in him. We are working on house training, as he does want to mark, which should resolve with neuter & consistent direction. He has already gotten used to walking in a harness; loves his strolls. He's a hand shy, timid guy who is learning to trust in his now safe environment. He engages my other pugs & today discovered belly rubs = ecstasy. Next stop: toy box. Beyond? Sky's the limit; help this turkey fly.

As is the way with fostering, warms my heart helping him become the pug he should have always been.


GrannyPH ID: #4831
Granny is a 10 yr old fawn female. She has dry eye and is receiving medication for that. Granny is heartworm negative and already spayed.

From Granny's foster: Granny, also known as GiGi, is a very young 9 year old owner surrender from The Valley, who weighs about 15 lbs. She is a happy and loving fawn girl, who gets along great with other dogs, and does fine with infants and toddlers. She's completely house trained, and uses the doggy door like a champ. GiGi is super vocal, and loves to talk to you when she wants something. She loves to cuddle up next to her human, and asks for belly rubs all the time, which will get her into a really loud snoring sleep! Having toys are a must. She carries one around all over the house, and will use it as a pacifier to help her go to sleep. GiGi is heartworm negative. She's on drops for her dry eye, and is getting coconut oil every night for some itchy skin. She is the most perfect pug, with the absolute cutest little pug body, complete with multiple fat rolls!

GretchenPH ID: #394
Gretchen is a 10 year old female.

HansPH ID: #5396
Hans is a Bugg mix that comes to PugHearts.

Hans is an energetic, limber and sweet 2 year old. He is a pug mix, but that is part of his charm. He is fed in the crate because he has 2 pugmates. He eats his food very fast. He thrives on routine. He interacts well with other dogs. He is very loving and cuddly and often sleeps flat on his back. Hans definitely deserves a good permanent home.

HarleyPH ID: #5049
Harley is a 14 year old owner surrender. He is heartworm negative and already neutered.

From Harley's foster: Harley is a 14 year old fawn male, who is healthy, up-to-date on his shots, and ready for adoption.

Harley was surrendered when his owner could no longer care for him. His life has been great and he’s very well adjusted. He’s potty trained and learned the doggie door immediately. He shows no cognitive or physical impediments and has no medical issues.

Because his owner purchased him, we know that Harley turned 14 on October 3, 2016. Don’t let that grey hair fool you, this senior is nowhere near slow or old. He runs around the backyard like a puppy and loves to be right beside you all the time. He’s like Velcro. He’s very low maintenance and easy going.

HermanPH ID: #5470
Herman is a cute little Chug (Chihuahua/Pug mix) that was in the shelter with another new intake. He managed to catch the eye...and the heart...of the volunteer pulling the pug. She could not leave him behind, and we agreed. So, meet Herman....this little guy is at the vet and we will know more soon.

HollyPH ID: #5009
Holly is a 12 yr old female. She comes to PugHearts after her owner passed away and there was no one to care for her.

She is bonded to her brother Toby (8 yrs old).

She is definitely the bossy one of the pair and loves to have all the attention.

She is heartworm negative and spayed.

From Holly (with some help from her foster): Hey yall, Holly here, I'm Looking for my forever home and I am ready to go. My brother and I were left at a kennel after out person passed away. We were loved and cared for. I'm about 11 years old. and weigh about 16 lbs. Foster mom say I am a coppery color, I stand out in the crowd. I am house broke and have learned how to go in and out the dog door. I will play with toys from time to time, but I do like my naps. I am fine the other pugs, Cat , and kids . I like to cuddle next to you. I do love my brother and he follows me where I go If I go out the dog door he follows and I follow him if he goes out. I love my brother. We must be adopted together.

IvyPH ID: #5454
Ivy is a sweet girl that comes to PugHearts looking for a forever home.

Ivy comes to as a owner surrender no fault of her own and is heartworm positive, that aside,words can’t describe this beautiful 4 year old.

Ivy will absolutely steal your heart the minute you meet her. This girl just melts in your arms when she snuggles with you. She has great temperament and gets along great with our grumble. Ivy is housebroken and has not had any accident since she has come into our home. If your looking for the perfect companion and great addition to your family she is worth the wait as she won’t be available until after her HW treatment.

JaxPH ID: #5432
Jax is a 7 year old blind male pug. He was surrendered with his friend Cass, but they are not bonded.

Jax is a 7 year old fawn male who was surrendered to PugHearts with his friend Cass. He lost an eye when he was young and is totally blind in the other eye. He is otherwise a healthy happy boy. When he first entered his foster home, he paced for about 3 days. He was mapping the furniture. Now he gets around with little effort. He explores the back yard and finds his way back to the back door. He would not do well with someone who likes to move their furniture all the time. He has a good appetite and goes straight to the kennel when you say kennel. He will also find his way onto the sofa, even the back of it, by himself. He will not jump off however and will whimper to let you know he would like to get off. He gets along with other dogs and is very possibly bonded to his buddy Cass who was surrendered to PugHearts when he was.

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

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

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

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

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

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

KingPH ID: #4459
King is about 15 year old fawn male. He is blind from untreated dry eye, has severe arthritis and multiple tumors that we suspect to be Mast Cell Cancers. He is heartworm negative and needs a dental. The tumors were removed.

He was being listed as "free to a good home" and a PugHearts person was good enough to let us know.

He is now safe and will be well cared for until a forever home comes along to allow this sweet gentle man to live the rest of his life as the King he should be.

From King (with some help from his foster): You know the "The King" was Elvis Presley so I must have some of his characteristics, with King as my name. One, I'm portly, second I do have a sweet voice but rarely do you hear it except for special occasions. I used to eat from the table but all that changed when I moved in here. Can you believe green beans and kibbles is the new diet. She doesn't know "the king" likes what ever the people are eating. Age has taken over a bit and at about 15, I don't see anything but shadows and don't hear but I can find the pet door just fine. Give me a couple Benadryl and this helps the allergies as well as the arthritis. You know getting old is tough but I still have a "hunk of love" to share with a family.

Lawrence is a 10 year old fawn male, heartworm negative. He is a laid back boy, loves walks and loves his treats. He does not play with toys, he likes to sleep, besides eating it is his favorite past time.

Not only is Lawrence looking for his forever home he is also looking for a pug to bond with. At Christmas his bonded sister crossed over the RainBow Bridge unexpectedly and he looks for her daily.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Foster mom also puts some coconut oil in out food several times a week. I love the taste of coconut. she gets that kind that is unprocessed or something like that, so it taste just like coconut.

This boy is super sweet, did not even give the cat a 2nd look.. His color is that of Mink, hence the name Minx. we will know more about him after he is seen by the vet.

From Minx's foster: Minx is a approximately 8 year old boy pug mix. They think he might be part boxer. He weighs about 26 pounds. He is very easy crate and does well on a leash.

NellyPH ID: #5336
Nelly is a 10-11 year old female. She comes to PugHearts due to changes in the family circumstances.

Sadly, Nelly has intestinal cancer and will be one of PugHearts hospice pugs until it is her time to cross the Rainbow Bridge.

Nelly is an incredibly low maintenance senior lady. She is perfectly content as long as I am near by and within her line of vision. She enjoys following me around the house to make sure I don’t get lonely, sitting on top of my feet while I’m cooking just in case food happens to fall to the floor and she sleeps at the side of my bed so she can keep an eye on me all night long. She gracefully tolerates our active two year old pug, and luckily does not share his enthusiasm for barking at any dogs that might happen by the House. The only time I’ve heard her bark has been when her dinner has been delayed.

Nelly stares lovingly at me with her big, brown eyes and my heart melts. Nothing makes her happier then snuggling up to my side and hunkering down for a restful nap. Caring for her during the final stage of her illness is my privilege and I couldn’t love her more even if we’d been lucky enough to be her family since she was a puppy.

NickyPH ID: #5474
Nicky is a young black female that comes to PugHearts looking for a forever family.

Nugget is a black male. He 10 years old. He is heartworm negative. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From Nugget's foster: Nugget is a 10 year old pug man…but I don’t think anyone has told him his true age! He is so active and happy – and quite the talker! He has the funniest “roo, roo, roo” talk that it will make you smile, even on your worst days! He loves to play with stuffed animals, and he gets along great with our other dogs and cat. He was an owner surrender, and seems to have been well cared for all of his life. He likes his “den” (crate) even when we are home and just watching tv, he will often just retreat with a toy to his area. He’s slowly enjoying more couch time though! He is housebroken. He is FULL of personality! Please consider opening your heart and home to this older gentleman….you will not be disappointed!

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

She is a 2 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.

PennyPH ID: #5333
Meet Penny.

She is not really a pug...but we won't tell if you won't.

Penny NAP is a lot of dog in a little package! She is a very well behaved lady who wants to be loved by a family of her own. She is house broken but does have the occasional accident in which she will use a puppy pad if one is available. I think she would do great in a home with a doggy door. Penny loves to spend time out back, where she will lay on the patio or in the grass and bask in the warmth of the sun. Penny came to us just days before she delivered 6 beautiful and healthy puppies. Penny has been a great mother to her puppies, but is not very old herself and looking forward to a new life through PugHearts.

At our home, she gets along great with all the other dogs but doesn't seem to really like our 2 cats. There are days when she ignores them completely but one wrong look from either cat will set her off and she will tree them up on the counter top or in their cat tree and bark non-stop. She loves toys, and given the opportunity will try stealing all the toys and hide them for her personal use. One of her most endearing features is her underbite! I just love when her lower lip pulls back a little and you can see her underbite. She will be ready for adoption after her puppies are weaned and she is spayed. If you are interested in a companion that loves to snuggle, she is definitely worth the wait!

Pending adoption with her foster family

RandallPH ID: #5457
Meet Randall

This gorgeous boy comes to PugHearts due to changes in the household. He is already neutered and just a LOVE!

Keep a close eye on this guy!

RayPH ID: #5385
Greetings, my name is Ray and my bonded mate is Bambi, we come as a pair. We lost our loving home when our owner suddenly passed away. Because we are different breeds, me being a French Bulldog and Bambi being a Pug/Brussels Griffon we went to separate Rescue organizations and after numerous weeks of us trying to adjust it was clear we both needed to be back together, so here we are two peas in a pod.

I am a handsome older gentleman who has a heart of gold and gets along with all the dogs in my foster home, young and old, my size all the way down to a tiny 2.4 lb dog. I am house trained and I do best with a regular potty schedule. I am crate trained although it is not my favorite place to be...I do best with Bambi by my side. I have a bit of a wonky walk, which is from my arthritis so a home without stairs is a must.

Bambi and I do take daily Dasquin to help ease the stiffness. My daily joys include belly rubs, napping, patrolling the fenced backyard perimeters and I do love my treats! I will occasionally play with my favorite squeaky toy, but this is only when I feel a bit frisky. I am a bit hard of hearing, but don't worry I respond to a wave of a hand or if I am close I can hear you if you speak up just a little. I am a quiet boy who will only vocalize when you return home from a short outing and this is to let you know how very much I missed you. Let me introduce you to Bambi, she is my bonded mate and she is a beautiful Pug/Brussels Griffon southern girl that has impeccable manners. Bambi is beautifully house-trained, crate trained and also dog friendly. Neither Bambi or myself have any destructive behavior what so ever. Bambi enjoys sniffing around the yard, occasional sunbathing, rolling in the plush green grass, sleeping on the couch and she loves treats too! She isn't much for for toys or playing, but is a timid, loving, gentle wall flower type personality. We would both flourish in a less active, calm home with someone who is home most of the time. We currently do not share a home with children and the hustle and bustle of children would be to much us. We both love to follow you around the house as you do your daily chores and we are content sleeping in the bedroom at our foster home on those thick orthopedic beds. Best part, you won't hear a peep out of us all night, well ok maybe a little snoring from Bambi, but I don't snore at all. We hope you won't pass us by because we aren't young pups, we will bring sunshine to your home daily and we would be very grateful for a forever home. Don't wait a moment longer to apply for this sweet couple!

Ray is bonded with his sister Bambi.

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?



TobyPH ID: #5010
Toby is an 8 yr old male. He comes to PugHearts after his owner passed away and there was no one to care for he and his sister (Holly) any longer.

He is bonded to his sister Holly (12 yrs old).

He is a laidback gentleman and loves to be near you.

Toby is heartworm negative and neutered.

From Toby (with some help from his foster): Toby here. I'm 7 or 8 years old. I love to play with toys, boy do I love to play with toys. I am about 20 lbs. Foster mom was surprised because I look bigger than I am. I do love to be with people and will cuddle right up with you. I am good with the other pugs, the cat and kids. I sometimes will nap with one of the other pugs here, but I can see my sister and as long as I know where she is then that's ok. I do love my sister. We must be adopted together

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

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

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

She is heartworm negative and already spayed.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

TyliePH ID: #5405
Tylie comes to us heartworm positive and it is clear she has been used for breeding. This girl is a complete sweetheart. She is enjoying all the attention and adores being pet. She is very playful but she entertains herself. She can throw her toys up to 3 feet high! She is crate trained, potty trained and already learned to sit on command. She is extremely velcro and gives great snuggles. She gets along really well with everyone, she is not toy or food possessive.

This dark beauty (her coat is amazing looking and super smooth) will be joining the Hamblin family once she completes heartworm treatment!

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

She is receiving care at our vet for ear mites and an ear infection, hookworms and malnutrition.

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

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

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

Special Notes

Vivian has hydrocephalus and consequently has neurological issues

WaynePH ID: #5475
Wayne is an adorable fawn male that has charmed everyone he has met so far. He will be seen by the vet and we will update soon.

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

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

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

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

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

ZanePH ID: #5458
Zane is a young man that comes to PugHearts looking for his place in the world. We will update once he is vetted and more comfortable in his foster home.
