AllisterPH ID: #5598
Allister is a good looking guy that comes to us from a shelter in Texas. Where do I begin, Welcome foster Allister, the chubbiest pug with the shortest legs I have ever seen. He is a really good boy whose looks just make me chuckle. He will be acquainted with the green bean diet to lose some weight.

Sadly, this hunk of pug is heartworm positive and will have to go through heartworm treatment prior to adoption.

AtlasPH ID: #5627
Atlas comes to PugHearts with the weight of the world on his small shoulders. He is about a year old and was taken to a local kill shelter by his owner. Happily, we are here to help and the shelter contacted us right away.

From Atlas himself.

I have been told I am the comedian in my foster home because I make everyone laugh as they shout…”You’re such a silly boy Atlas!” I really don’t know what is so funny, I just like to play tug of war with a 73 pound furry friend and I always win! At least that’s what always seems to happen but she might just be being nice to me since I am so handsome. Or maybe it’s because every time I see a lonesome sock on the floor I pick it up and we become best friends and we run around the house together! The little human kids that run around have these fun looking stuffed toys and I chase them around for fun and they make this high pitch laugh that just makes me happy! There are little humans aged 4-11 in my foster home as well as two big dogs that I like to follow around and play with. I have heard that I have a little spot on my right eye that the doctor looked at and said it’s healing nicely but I don’t really know what they are talking about because it doesn’t affect my vision at all.

I sleep nicely in a crate and don’t mind being in one if my foster mom needs to go somewhere. My potty training is going really well, and the told me I only have one more star to earn to get my potty training certificate. I am so excited about this because I have been told there will be treats involved when I receive the certificate!

I hope you would consider me for adoption as you are thinking of a fun loving and active 1 year old to add to you home. I have lots of puppy energy and love to play! I hope to meet you soon ~ Atlas.

AuroraPH ID: #5632
Aurora is a young fawn female that has already had too many litters of puppies.....but NO MORE!

Miss Aurora is a super sweet girl. She is super Velcro and wants to be in the same room with you all the time.

She does not like to be in a crate as she will cry non stop and after the first night of this we allowed her to sleep with the other dogs in our bedroom. Every night she will go crawl into the dog bed and sleep their all night.

She likes older kids 9 and up. Didn’t want a lot to do with any younger kids. She gets along well with my other dogs. Unsure of any other animals. She is going to make someone a super companion. She is currently learning what toys and treats are.

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

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

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

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

BambiPH ID: #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. We lost our loving home when our owner suddenly passed away.

I am a beautiful Pug/Brussels Griffon southern girl that has impeccable manners. I am beautifully house-trained, crate trained and also dog friendly. 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. I would flourish in a less active, calm home with someone who is home most of the time. I currently do not share a home with children and the hustle and bustle of children would be to much for me.

I love to follow you around the house as you do your daily chores and am content sleeping in the bedroom at our foster home on those thick orthopedic beds. Best part, you won't hear a peep out of me all night, well ok, maybe a little snoring.

I hope you won't pass me by because well, I am not a young pup anymore, I will bring sunshine to your home daily and would be very grateful for a forever home. Don't wait a moment longer to apply for this sweet girl!

BeePH ID: #5617
Bee comes to PugHearts with her sister Bumble. This cute pair is what everyone is buzzing about.....Are they meant for your beehive?

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

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

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

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.

BetsyPH ID: #5651
Foster Betsy is six-month-old. Her mother is a chug and her father is a pug. She is a petite girl, that's also a ball of fire. She's a typical pug puppy; wants to jump on you, wants to nibble on your ear and wants to run. She gets along well with other dogs, and loves to play with squeaky toys. She knows how to use a doggie door, but has not perfected the reasoning why she needs to go through a doggie door. She still has an occasional accident in the house, but we are working on it. She also loves chewing on hooves and snuggling. She's a cutie & a keeper.

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!

Big KahunaPH ID: #5529

Meet The Big Kahuna.

This gorgeous boy weighs in at 29 solid pounds. He is not fat, just BIG!

He is 5 years old and sadly, severe heartworm positive. He is on medication to stabilize his heart and lungs while we get him ready for heartworm treatment.

This love is vision impaired from untreated dry eye and his ears are full of infection and yeast.

Despite all of this, he is sweet and cuddly.

He will be worth the wait!


BoydPH ID: #5595
Foster Boyd is the epitome of a Velcro pug. He loves to lay in between your feet when you watch TV and follow you around the house to help with anything you need. He has perfect straight teeth and a cinnamon roll tail. He hasn’t had any accidents in the house and we are in the process of crate training. He does get anxious when you leave the room, but he does better in the crate when he has the company of his foster brother and sister.

He is will be available after his heart worm treatment.

BrycePH ID: #5587
Bryce is a handsome senior man looking for a family to call his own.

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: #5616
Bumble comes to PugHearts with her sister Bee.

Everyone is buzzing about them....are they meant for your beehive?

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.

CarsonPH ID: #5603
Carson is a 9 year old black male found wandering int he rain all alone.

He is heartworm negative and scheduled for his neuter.

This spunky chap is just waiting to find someone to have many adventures with.

CocoPH ID: #5560
CoCo is a pretty little black female.

This is Coco she is 7 years young but acts like a 3 year old. She will need to be fattened up a bit, spayed and go through heart worm treatment before she is ready for her forever home. She is very smart, I had her in the laundry room with a child gate up, she couldn’t jump over it so she turned over the laundry basket climbed on top and jumped over the gate. I think I am in trouble. ??

CookiePH ID: #5608
Cookie is a 5 yr old heartworm negative fawn female.

Cookie is an absolute joy. She’s extremely smart, only took 2 days to house train her and learn to use the doggy dog. She’s learned to sit on command and will do anything for food. If you’re looking for an intelligent Pug to learn a bunch of tricks, this is your girl. She’s on the smaller side and very, very affectionate. She enjoys sleeping in bed with us every night. Her absolute favorite things is belly scratches! She likes playing with toys and will suckle on them. She shares very well too, she often plays tug of war with the Bulldog. She’s great with other dogs and small children. Our daughter is 2 and they play well together. She is full of love, life and joy!!!

She was recently spayed and had her nares done (that’s why her nose has pink spots).

CrowleyPH ID: #5659
Mr. Crowley is such a sweet, shy guy! A true love pug with velcro tendencies, his small square-shaped face will steal your heart!! He is calm and curious, great with other dogs and figured out feeding time manners with the grumble very quickly. Good on leash and with going outside/doggy doors, and loves chewy toys for playing.

He is the ultimate chill buddy and gets his big boy and nares surgery on 8/24 & at 18 months old and heartworm negative, he will find his family quick! So, get your applications in for Crowley today!

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 :)

DenisePH ID: #5182
Denise is a 5 yr old female. She is heartworm negative and scheduled for her spay.

Denise comes to PugHearts with severe skin issues resulting from a flea infestation. She is happy to have been treated for those nasty fleas and the meds are already helping with the itches.

From Denise's foster: Miss Neesie, as we call her, is a squishy 5-year old girl who is just about perfect. She is beautiful, with great nose and neck wrinkles and folds, and a beautiful Puggy tail. She is very, very social and loves all people. She can work a crowd or just sit and cuddle one-on-one. She is an enthusiastic kisser. She gets along very well with her four foster siblings (Pug, Bugg, Peke, Boston), and instantly fit into the pack.

Denise has not had an accident in the house since her second day here. (She had a UTI when I picked her up, and after that cleared, she has been perfect.) Denise walks well on a leash, and we’re working on getting her accustomed to a harness. She has a good bit of energy despite being a little chunky, and is not a total couch potato Pug. Due to the very short muzzle and being slightly overweight, Denise gets uncomfortable in the heat, so we do short and shady walks.

Denise is working hard on her biggest vices: car rides and food obsession. She tolerates being crated in the house, but is vocal about riding in her crate; she doesn’t ride well loose, either. She is an eager eater, and I feed her separately because she will eat her food and then go help out on the other bowls. She follows me on each visit to the kitchen and demands food; she will bark and bump me with her nose to let me know she must be fed, NOW.

Denise came into Pughearts with itchy skin and ears, dry eye and UTI. All of these have improved with medications, and she should be finished with her oral meds on 3/18. She may need drops for her dry left eye for life, but she is super good about letting me put them in.

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 ??????.

DoryPH ID: #5653
Dory is a young female that comes to PugHearts looking for her family.

She is a ball of energy and activity and will need someone that understands how to keep a young lady focused.

Dory (aka Mochi) is a sweet little 4 month old girl! She has tons of energy and she enjoys playing with her foster brother and helping her foster Mom take care of the chickens and ducks. She is so smart and has mostly gotten potty training down! She stays in her crate like good girl and rarely has an accident. She is 90% angel and 10% Tasmanian devil! When she gets ready to crash she loves to snuggle with her foster Dad.

DrakePH ID: #5648
Drake is a heartworm negative 2 year old male. This active happy guy is scheduled for his neuter and surgical opening of the nares and then he is already PENDING ADOPTION!

DundeePH ID: #5628
Dundee was found taking a walkabout all alone. He is about 2 years old. He is a sweet little guy with the sweetest little face who likes to be near his people all the time. He gets along well with other dogs. He is pretty quiet except for meal time when he lets you know he’s ready for his meal. He is a bit under-weight so we are working on that. Dundee likes to play with stuffed toys, and he likes a nice cozy bed. Dundee is potty trained, and he sleeps well in his crate.

Dundee has some skin irritation around his feet and ears, but he has a medicated shampoo that will help clear that up. Dundee suffered an untreated injury to his front leg and will have to have the leg amputated to remove the pain he experiences daily. Dundee is also heart worm positive so he will need to have heart worm treatment before he goes to his forever home.

Foster Dundee is doing great only 4 days after having his front leg amputated! He is getting around amazingly, has mastered the stairs already, chewing toys and bones with only one front leg to hold on to them with, and most importantly peeing on a tree wile standing on 2 legs (more of a squat/half leg lift)! He is such a sweet boy and is also enjoying being spoiled and loved on by everyone in his foster family!

DylanPH ID: #5573
Dylan is an 18 month old male from a local shelter.

He had severe trauma to his eye and it had to be removed.

Dylan is a sweet, young male, not quite 2 yet. Sadly, he’s had a rough start in life. He lost an eye, and is heartworm positive. He has fully adjusted to life as a winky, and is learning to be a loved family member. He is a champion snuggler, whether on a couch or in a big bed! He’s learning to play with toys, and with his foster brothers and sisters. He is crate trained, and nearly housebroken. This sweetheart of a boy will make a wonderful family member!

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)

EzraPH ID: #5599
Ezra is a 7 year old severe heartworm positive male. Ezra is 7 years young. He always seems to have s smile on his face and pep in his step. When he walks he looks like he has purpose, like he has somewhere to be, and the fun won't start until he arrives. He was found as a stray and is looking for a home that will let him be the sweet, silly, independent boy that he is. He's more of a dog's dog and would probably do best with siblings. He likes kids, does well in the crate, is house trained, and loves food but doesn't beg. If you're looking for a dog that makes you smile, he might be the right one for you. Medically, he will have a small growth removed and a dental cleaning soon, and he has heartworms, and will go through treatment soon.

FanniePH ID: #5565
Fannie is a 5 yr old female that comes to PugHearts with her sister Beatrice. Fannie is sadly, severe heartworm positive and will not be available until after heartworm treatment.

HagridPH ID: #5644
Hagrid was found running free all alone. He seems to have been attacked by another animal and we are working on healing his eyes and the bite wounds on the back of his neck.

Hello. My name is Hagrid. I am approximately two years old. I'm a bit on the thin side, bit we're working on that. I love to love, and I really love my toys; especially ones twice my size. My hobbies include eating, cuddling, and matching every step you take. I don't understand personal space, but we're working on that. My ideal home would have a yard for me to run in and a human that can love like I do.

Since she was rescued from a breeder, she is still working on house training but has made incredible progress in the first week being in her foster home. After the first few days, she has had only had accidents on the pee pad after she eats. Otherwise, she goes in the backyard with the other dogs. She is working on losing some “holiday weight” and will undergo treatment for heartworms over the next few months.

Isidora is a sweet girl that comes to PugHearts from the Rio Grande Valley with her sister Isabella.

Hi! My name Is Isadora the Explorer and I am a young 6 years old and I am looking for my furever home. I am an owner surrender and I am still learning the potty techniques and being crate trained.

JaxPH ID: #5432
Jax is a 7 year old fawn male. 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. I think he would like a home with at least one other dog to help him feel secure. Give this amazing blind boy a chance. One last word, he will NOT do well around a pool and/or other open bodies of water.

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!

Lady BirdPH ID: #5640
Lady Bird is a 5 year old fawn female. She is heartworm positive and will have to go through heartworm treatment prior to adoption.

LattePH ID: #5209
Latte is a 10 year old that is looking for a comfy couch and quality snuggle time. Latte is heartworm negative and dealing with dry eye.

From Latte's foster: Latte is about 9 years old. Blind in one eye and maybe some in the other eye.

He is a little bit of a loner. He eats very well in his crate. Latte prefers sleeping with me and his other Pug friends. Very good with other dogs and children. Latte would be a very good companion to sit and be a TV buddy.

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.

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!

I also take Tobutrol for what they call a narrowing trachea which makes me cough from time to time. I do like to cuddle. I love my treats. I love green beans and carrots with my kibble. 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.

But her skin is healing nicely and she loves to eat! She loves to be in your lap, sleeping snuggling up with you or under your feet. Those are the only choices! She does have a spinal issue that causes her back legs to sometime flare out, so I don't recommend her being placed in a home with small children.

TaftPH ID: #5641
Taft wants to personally thank that ladies that alerted PugHearts to him and a special thanks to Laura for catching him.

Taft, named for his weighty goal, President William Howard Taft, was literally trapped in the wild, after a Good Samaritan alerted PugHearts, and skilled volunteers worked cleverly to nab him. He'd been living in a ditch (yes really), surviving the heat, the rain, the dark, and multiple major roadways. He was elusive and took time, but now lives the indoor dream.

He is a tiny, 12 pound, 4 year old, black and white pug with unique white tuxedo chest and speckled matching 'gloves'. He is very active and cheerful and loves my other pugs. He will need strong guidance from all his new family members with regard to potty and house manners. He likely has never lived inside; never seen a toy; never had any consistency or training. He is simply electric when given attention and flops around like a fish with excitement. PugHearts will spare no expense in restoring him to health. We've already covered the happy.

He has an underdeveloped eye, but does see; his August neuter set. Sadly (but expectedly), he is severe heart worm positive and quite malnourished, so will not be adoptable until Oct/Nov. This quirky, adorable, hard luck gent will get chosen fast, so get your app in now and follow his frequent updates on PugHearts' Facebook page.

Teddy BearPH ID: #5596
Teddy Bear is a young boy that comes to us from a local animal facility with a severe case of demodex mange and an accompanying skin infection. He is receiving medical care and he will be feeling and looking better in no time.

Teddy Bear is a 3 month old pup who was abandoned because of Demodex. He has been treated for it and is learning to live in a house. Next step will be his neuter and then he should be ready to adopt. We are not sure exactly what mix of breeds this little angel is, but he does have a little wrinkled face. He is very playful and extremely sweet. He eats well and is learning to potty outside. He plays well with the other dogs and LOVES toys. He pulls them into his open crate and sleeps among them. This little guy runs with the big dogs when they go outside to play. He is really a good puppy.

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.

TheodorePH ID: #5552
Theodore 2 says no bones about it. Indoor life rules.

This guy is fairly new to PugHearts. A 2 year old fawn stray who sadly, after what appears months of no care, is severe heart worm positive, & pounds underweight. He has had his neuter.

We are still acquainting, but I assess:

He is BEAUTIFUL, tall & long; his appetite for toys & food taller & longer. He LOVES my other pugs, & plays voraciously. There is zero indication he has ANY leash, crate or potty training. Rest assured, I'm emphatic about all 3. Being that restoring him to health will take several months, I have confidence in us. Beyond me, he will need a forever home where all occupants will continue consistent, diligent guidance.

With this new 'degree plan', Theodore 2 is bound to graduate an astounding family addition late August to September.

ThorPH ID: #5588
Prayers needed for a sweet old man who is on his way to Houston from Mexico.

Thor is in bad shape and he needs all the prayers he can get.

He has tested positive for Erlichia, a tick borne disease, and is now receiving treatment for it. He has had a blood transfusion and IV Fluids to help him feel better. TREATMENT COMPLETED

Thor came thundering into our lives in June. He was found on the streets of Mexico and he was very ill. This little man was not given much hope to survive. But was delivered to Houston and once again our vets have been miracle workers and Thor is doing well. Thor eats everything he can and has put on a few lbs., he takes his meds, supervises the grumble, howls when he is happy to see you and is potty trained.

Thor is 10yrs old, heartworm - (thank goodness) and is not ready for adoption yet - but keep an eye on this sweetheart - He is amazing!!

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?



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.

ValeriePH ID: #5580
Valerie is a 5 year old female from a local shelter. Sadly, she is severe heartworm positive and will have to go through heartworm treatment prior to adoption.

Timid, quiet, sweet, loving are all words to describe Valerie. She hasn't been properly cared for in the past, but is now enjoying being loved on and is building self confidence. We are working on helping her overcome her aversion to grass. She won't walk on it unless she's forced, but we're working on it. She gets along well with other dogs, kids, and doesn't mind getting kenneled. Medically, she has dry eye, which require daily drops, will have soft palette surgery to help her breathe easier, and she's heartworm positive, but will go through treatment in August. Valerie has gone through a tough beginning in her 5 years, but she is ready for the right forever home to give her a fairy tale ending.

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

WhitneyPH ID: #5392
Whitney is a black female pug. She comes to PugHearts looking for a home with no cats. See, she likes to chase and catch them....so better for the cats if there are none at her home.

Whitney is a beautiful energetic 1 year old little girl, who is heartworm negative. She is your typical 1 year old, she loves to play and her chew toys. She get along great with our grumble but does not get along with cats. We are working on the potty training but she is very smart little girl and shouldn’t take long. It only took her a day to learn the doggy door. She finds her kennel a safe zone and sleeps through the night without accidents.

She will be a great addition to your family.

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!


Wilson update -After a tough time with heartworm treatment, he is now doing very well. He is healthy, loves his humans, his dogs, and also loves children. He will climb in any lap that will hold him. Please consider this sweet, very chill Man Dog! We love Wilson and he deserves his own family, he has waited a long time!!
