AbbeyPH ID: #295
Abbey is a 4 year old black female. She came to us through a local shelter. She is mildly heartworm positive. She is in otherwise good health. She has been spayed, microchipped and is up to date on her vaccinations. Abbey is a very sweet girl, very timid and quiet.

From Abbey's Foster Mom: Abby is quite a sweet little girl. As you can see from her pictures, she is absolutely beautiful. Her coat is SOLID black and she has one of the prettiest faces I have seen on a pug (and I'm not a bit biased!) It's obvious that she has been someone's pet and I believe she was pampered. Abby talks to me when she wants something. The first time I heard her I wasn't sure what it was, I thought a kitten may have been stuck somewhere outside, but it was Abby. She has several little noises and they are all really cute. She does bark when the other dogs get started but she's never the one to start it. She is definitely a companion, she wants to be on my lap all the time. She has a tendency to be an alpha, she does like to have things her way. She has never been aggressive, she's just very determined. She likes to play with toys and she has impeccable house manners, she has not had one accident. She also likes to play with her pug brothers. I think she would do well in a home with another dog. She does well with large dogs (Great Dane) but has not been exposed to cats. She has a very loving and playful personality and will make some lucky family a wonderful new addition!





AbbyPH ID: #398
Abby is a 3 year old female.

We will post a full bio once Abby has settled into her foster home.





AbigailPH ID: #340
Abigail is a fawn female. We estimate she is around 5 years old. This poor little girl was found wandering the streets, following a homeless man for companionship. She has been treated for heartworm, spayed and brought up to date on her shots. Abby is very intelligent and has picked up commands very easily. She is a very happy pug and loves to play with her other puggy pals. She loves stuffed animals and playing fetch; loves to sit on your lap and give kisses. She is an alpha dog and does not get along with other females but does just fine with submissive males. I do not suggest her being around younger children, as she tends to play to rough - never trying to hurt them, but she is a rough-and-tumble kinda girl. Abby has spent her time on the streets and is now looking for a cozy home and permanent family that will pamper her.





AbigailPH ID: #4698
Abigail is a 5 year old female. She was surrendered by her owner though no fault of her own.

From Abigail's foster: Foster Abigail is a sweet petite 10 lb girl. She is house trained and wants to sleep as close as she can to her family at night. She plays fetch and tug of war and will bring you a toy as a gift when you arrive home. She is a lap girl and a sweet heart that loves her squeaky toys. She likes children, dogs and cats. She is ready for adoption and will make a great addition to any home.





AbigailPH ID: #4899
Abigail is an 8 year old black female. She comes to PugHearts after her owner passed away and the family was unable to care for her.

From Abigail's foster: Abigail is an 8-year old black female pug who came to PugHearts after her owner passed away. Abigail is a very sweet and loving pug ready to start the next chapter in her life. She is potty trained, healthy, spayed and very low maintenance even though she is vision impaired. She mapped our first floor in a few days and figured out where the water bowl was almost instantly. Abigail would do best in a home with another dog/stay-at-home human as this makes her feel more comfortable and confidant. Abigail's personality is very sweet and calm, which will make her a perfect companion for a lucky family.





AbigailPH ID: #5017
Abigail is a black female that comes to PugHearts after being found wandering all alone in the middle of the night.

She is at the vet and we will update soon

From Abigail's foster: Abigail is a beauty and as sweet as she can be. She has dry eyes so that has to be watched.

Potty trained uses the doggy door and she gets along well with her humans and PH alumi

AblePH ID: #515
Able is a black male. He is 7 years old. He is in good health; he is heartworm negative. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.





AdamPH ID: #4595
Adam is a 2 year old fawn male from a local shelter.

He has just been neutered and made current on his shots. He is a skinny little boy, but he should gain some weight with good food and lots of loving. He had loads of fleas when we first got him, but they are all gone now and his coat is going to be gorgeous. He came to PugHearts through no fault of his own!

Adam is a sweet little fellow and likes to be near his humans. He is kennel trained but prefers to sleep cuddled up with his people. He does not mark and has had just a couple of accidents in the house at his foster home! He has a good appetite.

He is very happy and gets along with the other dogs at his foster home. He is a talker, though I’ve only had him for a day; he may calm down once he is settled. He loves to play with toys and is very agile.

Come meet this little fellow at a PugHearts event and see how very pretty a pug can be!

AdelePH ID: #5035
Adele is a 4 yr old female. She is heartworm negative and spayed.

From Adele's foster: Adele is a sweet little girl. She is 4 years old, HW negative and spayed. She is a timid little thing but she loves to be held and loved on. She won’t come to me yet so I have to go pick her up to get her on my lap or the couch. She has started showing more of an interest when they are all trying to get attention when I get home and has showed interest in joining in.

Adele is an extremely well behaved pug, I have yet to hear her bark and she hasn’t had any accidents in the house. She does well in the crate without making noise. She would make a great pug for someone living in an apartment. She will be at the events coming up so please stop by to meet her.





AdelePH ID: #4759
Adele is a young female that has been used as a breeder for too long. Adele is a spunky 2 year old female. She is spayed and heartworm negative.

Adele is heading for her forever home in Oklahoma this week.





AdelinePH ID: #4588
Adeline is a 2 year old female Pug mix. She is a very gentle girl who does well with small children and other dogs. Adeline is potty trained and knows how to use the doggy door. When you meet her, it will be hard to not fall in love with this girl. The sweet eyes and the loving kisses will steal your heart. Adeline would be a great addition to any home.





AdriannaPH ID: #967
Adrianna is a 2-3 year old black female Pug who comes to us as a stray with no tags or chip. She is heart worm negative and has no health issues. Andriana is housebroken, crate trailed, rides in the car well and a very sweet little girl. She gets along well with both large and small dogs, cats and humans. She loves to snuggle on the couch with her foster mom's 5 year old. Adrianna has had many litters of puppies in the past but is now spayed.

From Adrianna's foster: I can't say enough about this sweet little girl! She is very well behaved and loves to snuggle up. Crate training has been a breeze and she has not had on single accident in the house. She is going to make someone a wonderful companion. Please consider Adrianna for your family.





AidenPH ID: #558
Aiden is a 5 year old fawn male. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.






AjaxPH ID: #874
Ajax is a good-looking one-year old black male rescued from a local kill shelter. He has some scrapes on his face & head and a bit of a runny nose, but he is heartworm negative, and otherwise appears healthy. He will need to be neutered. He is probably crate-trained, since he took care of what had to be several days’ worth of “business” as soon as he hit the grass!. He was quite calm for a young dog while riding in the car, and we will know more about him after he is examined by our vet.





AlbertPH ID: #1014
Albert is a fawn male. He is about 2 years old. He is heartworm positive and has begun treatment. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From Albert's foster: Albert is one of the sweetest pugs that I've ever fostered. He is young and playful (he's not super playful and he's not hyper at all), but also the biggest cuddler, he loves to cuddle with people or other dogs, he is not picky about who he cuddles with, he just loves to do it. He is trained to use the dog door. Of course he likes to sleep cuddled up by my side in bed. He does have some food protection issues so I feed him in a crate to avoid any problems. Once Albert finishes his heartworm treatment, he'll make someone's home happier.





AlbertPH ID: #4895
Albert is an 8 yr old male. He was surrendered to PugHearts when the other dogs in the house were too much for him. He needs a bit of a diet, but this guy is all love.

From Albert's foster: Albert is BIG! Big in size and bigger in personality!! He is an 8 year old black male that was surrendered to us by his owner. If you're looking for a spunky lap dog that gets along with everyone...Albert is your man! He loves to play chase and even knows how to sit and give a high five! He is polite and completely potty trained. Albert is big fun and would make a great addition to any home!





AlbusPH ID: #4675
Albus (aka Noah) is a sweet senior who will turn 13 the day after Christmas. He and his bonded brother Alfred (aka Moses) found themselves here through no fault of their own. This boy is blind, somewhat deaf and was diagnosed with cancer (mast cell) in 2011. However, his first PH physical shows that he has congestive heart failure which is the more pressing issue. He is on meds now and doing fine. He actively seeks out attention and loves to snuggle with his pug friends and especially his person. Like most pugs, he loves to eat though his favorite snacks are carrots and string beans and homemade pug-kin cookies.

Special Notes

Due to his condition, Albus is a hospice foster and is not available for adoption.





AlexPH ID: #4976
Alex is an 7 yr old fawn male from the Rio Grande valley. He is heartworm negative.

Alex has some traumatic damage to his rear hips. We are evaluating him so we can form a treatment plan to make him comfortable and happy long term.

From Alex's foster: Alex is about seven years old and has limited vision in his left eye. He is very sweet and prefers to sleep on the bed during the day.

He is more independent than most of the other fosters. He is not a barker. He enjoys Sunning in the backyard and needs supervision in order to keep him from overheating. He gets along well with children and other dogs.








AlexPH ID: #603
Alex is a fawn male. He is a young guy - probably about 1 year old. He is in good health. He is heartworm negative. He has been brought current on his vaccinations and microchipped. He will be neutered prior to placement.

As he comes to us from a shelter, so we don't know his story. But it looks like life hasn't been too kind to him so far. He has some small scars on his back at the shoulder; the vet said they look like they may be from burns. They are all healed and hopefully his fur will return soon. He's a small little guy at only 12 pounds and it doesn't look like he'll get too much bigger.

He's a lover - he loves to be held. His foster reports he presses his head into her shoulder like he's hugging her! He gets on well with his foster siblings and loves to play. He also is housetrained so he's all ready for his forever home to come claim him!





AlexisPH ID: #448
Alexis is a fawn female. She came to us from an out of state puppy mill where she was used for breeding. She is 6 years old. Poor Alexis was suffering from a painful left eye injury, hookworms and ringworms. She is also heartworm positive. We were unable to save her eye but now that it has been removed she is pain free. She has also been spayed so she never has to worry about having puppies again. Her hookworms and ringworms should be clear now that she's received medications and her heartworm treatment will begin shortly. This sweet little girl has had a pretty rough life so far but we've promised her that those days are far behind her and we will find somebody who will treat her like the cherished pet she should've always been.





AlfalfaPH ID: #3152
Alfalfa is a young brindle pug. He is a BIG boy at 32 lbs, and it’s all muscle. Since brindle is not a naturally occurring color in the breed, there must be some French bulldog or Boston Terrier in the mix: he has a little stub tail that shakes his whole butt when he wags it, and one ear that stands mostly erect all the time, making a completely adorable combination. He has been neutered, microchipped, and is up to date on his vaccinations. He is heartworm positive, but we will treat that in the early fall. Big Al is basically a galumphing, boisterous adolescent who needs some structured play and discipline. He is very smart, learns quickly, and has good house manners. His dog-dog social skills are excellent; he looks away and shows respect and surprising tolerance. He ignores cats. However, Alfalfa can be intimidating to smaller dogs because of his size and presence, and will retaliate if pushed too hard. He has excellent bite discipline when playing with your hand, loves chewies and playing tug of war, and is quite athletic. Alfalfa seems to prefer male humans, and there is something about this burly goofball that makes the feeling mutual, making him quite the Daddy’s boy.





AlicePH ID: #845
Alice is a fawn female. She comes to us from a local kill shelter. We believe she is about 5 or 6 years old. She is heartworm positive. She is a very tiny girl - only weighs 11 lbs - but is very big on attitude!

From Alice's foster: Alice is beyond adorable! She is an extremely tiny pug and that face…… there just aren’t words to adequately describe it. I’m not sure why, because she seems to have all her teeth, but her tongue hangs out all the time. She looks like she’s sticking it out at you because it doesn’t fall to either side of her mouth. Evidently she was pretty feisty at the clinic but since she has come home she has turned into a loving, sweet girl. She is too small to jump on the couch (at least she thinks she is – I think she could do it) so she just paws at me until I pick her up. Then it’s cuddle time until I have to get up for some reason. She also seems to be housetrained. She has slept with me every night since she arrived and seems to think that’s where she should be.

She seems to get along quite well with the other fosters. She has told Howie more than once to back off, but let me tell you he deserves it sometimes. Even for a pug, Alice is quite obsessed with food. She isn’t overly skinny so I’m not sure why but she gets a little crazed if she thinks there’s food anywhere that is accessible. I think when she leans that food will always be available she may get better. She’s not overly playful either, she will play with me sometimes but she very seldom plays with the others. She sits on my lap with her ears perked up watching them but doesn’t jump down to get involved.

If a sweet, loving, gently little lady is what you are looking for, she’s your girl! Alice is the perfect size to fit right in your heart!





AlicePH ID: #4925
Alice is a sweet female that comes to us from a local shelter.

She has some bald spots and is quite itchy.

From Alice's foster: Alice is a super great little girl, and she is super little. She weighs around 12 pounds. She’s about 7 or so. She has been fighting skin issues so that is why she’s a little scruffy looking but has turned the corner and is now growing fuzz in the bald patches. It will only be a matter of a few months until she has a super silky, full coat.

Alice is very loving and just wants to curl up in a little ball on my lap and stay there all night, and she’s so tiny that she leaves enough room for everyone else to get some lap time also. She has one of the cutest faces I have ever seen, I absolutely love her tongue and how it hangs out most of the time. She gets along great with all the other fosters and loves the children at events. She will make a great addition to any type of family, she is young enough to be active for a younger family who wants to play but she’s just as happy to hang out on your lap for the evening with a more settled family.





AlicePH ID: #4472
Alice comes to us from a shelter near Corpus Christi. We believe that she is a Pug / Boston Terrier mix. She is a young girl at about 1-2 yrs. old.

She has demodex mange and is (by some miracle) heartworm negative. She will be a beautiful lady once she is well.

From Alice's foster: Alice was found tied up outside of the Animal Control facility in Alice, Texas. She was very skinny, covered in ticks and had mange. Wow, what a difference a few weeks in foster care makes! Now Alice is a cute, playful, energetic, cuddly, fun puppy! Her hair is growing back in quickly from the demodex mange. She may always need medication for the demodex, but it is not a big deal to give it to her. Alice is doing very well on her house manners. She is young, about one year. She is super smart! She learned how to sit in just a few lessons and she learned how to go out a doggie-door very quickly. She loves to run and play with her two foster sister pugs. She stays in her crate when foster mom is gone and at night. This is mostly because she is still a puppy and chews things. When she is a little older she would love to cuddle in bed all night. Alice will make a wonderful addition to a home where she can play and run all day.





AlisterPH ID: #4891
Alister is a 2 year old fawn male who came to us from the valley where he was found covered in ticks.He is heartworm negative and will be neutered as soon as he finishes his antibiotics for tick fever. That means he could go to his fur ever home by Valentine's Day! Alister came to us stressed and scared from his many changes, transport, and crating at the vet. After less than 12 hrs in foster care he had learned to sit, and was snuggling in bed with 2 humans and 6 other dogs. He has never looked back. He is quite calm and gentle, although he is s bit enthusiastic with his kisses. He's learning to play with the young dogs in his foster home, and enjoys zoomies. He also shows good bite discipline when wrestling with you. He's learned the doggy door and no longer marks. He may still have reservations about young children and the crate, but he is a very well behaved and adorable youngster who needs to put on some weight! Treats, anyone?





AllenPH ID: #4983
Allen is a young fawn male found wandering with a doggy friend and no supervision.

He is safe know (and so is his friend) and will be seen by our vet. We will update soon.





AlliePH ID: #4556
Allie is a smutty fawn female. She is about 8 years old and is an owner surrender.

From Allie's foster: Allie is a very sweet and petite cutie patootie. She is doing great with our pugs, the cat and two very rambunctious little boys. She fits right into the pack, has no issues with our self proclaimed alpha female and leader of the pack. She happily sleeps with the other pugs in the doggie playpen at night, however, I believe if given the opportunity she'd much prefer a spot in the human bed. She loves being at your side or in your lap, she's a very loving girl. She's potty trained and an all around awesome girl.





AmandaPH ID: #490
Amanda is a fawn female. She comes to us from a local animal control facility. We believe she is just 2 years old. She is severe heartworm positive and will begin treatment shortly. She also is suffering from a case of hookworms that is being treated. She has been spayed and brought current on her vaccinations. She is a really sweet little girl that deserves a chance at a healthy, happy life.





AmaraPH ID: #5249
Amara is a beautiful female that comes to PugHearts from the Rio Grande Valley. She was covered in ticks and has obviously had too many litters of puppies. No more of that for her.

She is being seen by the vet and we will update soon.

From Amara's foster: Hi. I'm Amara, but my foster family calls me Lil Bit. I came to Pughearts from the valley covered in ticks and insect bites. But now my skin is almost all healed and my coat is getting soft and silky. I'm crate trained and house trained and great with all the other dogs in my foster home. I like to start up a good wrestle match and chase game with the other pups I live with. I might be a Velcro pug, but my foster mom says I'm more like a surgically implanted pug. She accidentally trips over me all the time because I stay right by her feet. I love squeaky toys, but am just as happy tackling an empty milk jug or water bottle and chasing it all over the house. I just had my big girl surgery so now I'm all ready to be someone's furever baby. If you're looking for an adorable, hilarious, tiny bundle of energy and love who will be your shadow, I'm the girl for you!!





AmberPH ID: #3170
From Amber's foster: Amber is simply awesome! She was found by the SPCA after her eyes were injured. We think she was hit by a car and the force of the impact caused the injury to both her eyes. They were damaged beyond anything that could be done to repair them so they removed both eyes. Her eyes, spay and tumor removal (on her tail) was done by the SPCA. She is a typical blind pug, nothing seems to bother her and she gets around with little or no issues. I have had quite a few blind pugs and they accommodate the change in their life in stride and it doesn't seem to bother them. They seem to have an internal GPS system that kicks in.

Amber is extremely well behaved and over the top with loving. She is never far from my side, she loves to be touched and loved on. She doesn't interact with the other fosters I have but that isn't unusual, most blind pugs are not overly playful. They will play if you instigate it but they seldom just go crazy like other pugs. They also walk everywhere, they quickly learn that running will bring them a knock on the head. I use the word careful when I see they are heading for a collision and after awhile they know that they should be on the lookout and slow down. She is house trained and the only accident she had was the first day when she had no idea where to go. She still doesn't tell me when she needs to go out, but neither do the others. I have a semi large group of pugs so we do "group potty breaks", when I say it's time to go everyone goes.

Amber does have heartworms so she will not be available for adoption until September or so. Other than that she is in excellent health. She was in a bad situation when she was found but I truly believe that at some point in her life she was a very loved little girl. She is well behaved (she sits on command) and when we go to bed she insists that she wants to burrow under the covers, so she's also slept with her humans. She is pretty stubborn, we have a disagreement every night about getting under the covers. If I let her squirrel down within 5 minutes she's laying there panting like it's 200 degrees so I pull her out. But she will continue to attempt to get under for several minutes before she finally gives up and lays on top of the covers. I guess the important message there is that I win. :-)

Amber is also gorgeous. She has great facial wrinkles and her fur is blackest black and like satin. She is also a very small pug, 14 or so pounds. We believe she is around 5 years old.

I dearly love her and she will make a great addition to any family. She goes to the events when we have them so keep an eye on our Facebook page for the locations and drop by to meet her when you have a chance.





AmbrosiaPH ID: #5145
Ambrosia is a young female that comes to PugHearts from a local shelter.

From Ambrosia's foster: Ambrosia is a 3 year old female who enjoys making everyone laugh. She is full of energy, playing with toys and wrestling with the other pugs in the house. Her weakness is a good belly rub and melts like butter in your arms. She gets along well with the other pups, is great with kids, does fairly well in the crate (there's a little crying), and sleeps well in the human bed. She makes a lot of grunting noises and her tongue is out quite a bit, because she's always on the go. After her spay and dental, she will make someone a fun, silly, sweet member of their family.





AmeliaPH ID: #5293
Meet Amelia. She was found wandering in a neighborhood. She is in poor condition for a 7 yr old girl.

She needed a dental (already done) and several large masses were removed. She will be feeling better in no time.

From Amelia's foster: What a sweetheart! Miss Amelia Bedelia may have had a rough start in life, but she has not let that get her down. She is 7 years old, heartworm positive and has already been spayed. She gets along great with my other pugs and just wants to be with her people. She is learning to play with toys and her favorite past times are chewing on bones and snuggling with her favorite people. She is a sweet little lady and once she goes through heartworm treatment and has a dental, she will make a wonderful addition to your family!





AmeliaPH ID: #354
Amelia is a fawn female. She was thrown out of a car and a Good Samaritan who witnessed this rescued her and called us to help her. We believe she is about 5 years old. She looks like she has probably been used by a puppy mill. She has been negected as well as overbred. She is severe heartworm positive, suffering from whipworms & hookworms and has a severe skin irritation due to fleas. Despite everything that she has been through she is a sweet, gentle girl who loves to be held and be around people. She is content to be held an cuddled for long periods of time. She is being spayed and will begin heartworm treatment soon. She needs a special home that will show her what the life of a spoiled princess puggy can be like.

From Amelia's Foster: Amelia is so sweet. She loves her humans and must be in constant contact. She loves to have her tummy rubbed. She is also quite playful and plays chase with the other dogs. She gets on well with children and adults alike. She is currently working on being housetrained.





AmyPH ID: #541
Full Description Coming Soon!






AmyPH ID: #5016
Amy is a fawn female that was dumped in a neighborhood and helped out by a nice person.

From Amy's foster: Amy is a 4 year old fawn female with loads of personality. She is house trained and kennel trained. Amy is very active and loves to play with her toys. She gets along with other dogs but she won’t let anyone push her around. Her first Pughearts event got her 3 applications for adoption. She won’t be around for long because she is so cute and so much fun.

Amy has fallen into the pool numerous times so it may not be a good idea for someone with a pool to adopt her. She cannot swim at all.

Medical Issues: she has been diagnosed with dry eye and will need drops from the vet for her life time.






AnaPH ID: #4894
Ana is a 5 yr old black female.

She is dealing with a skin infection and severe heartworms. This sweet girl will be spayed as soon as her skin heals. She will go through heartworm treatment before she can find her forever home.

From Ana's foster: What can I say about this little love? She is a 5 yr. old "Winky" and just the sweetest girl. She will lay in your arms like a rag doll for hours just to be loved on. She's very clingy, so be prepared to be her one and only. She likes her crate but prefers to snuggle as close as possible to her human at bed time. She's afraid of our doggy door, so we are working on that, but will go sit by the door to let you know she needs to go outside. She enjoys an occasional chew toy to play with. She has a luxating patella on one of her back legs but it doesn't stop her a bit. Ana has to go through heartworm treatment, and will probably be ready for adoption this early summer.





AnaPH ID: #4
Ana is a sweet little black female - though it's tough to tell with her current skin condition. She came to us through an animal cruelty case with the SPCA. She has now been released to us to get her well and find her a new home. We estimate she is between 3 to 4 years old, though everyone thinks she is a puppy when they first see her. She is a very petite little girl but she is definitely an adult dog. She has been brought up to date on her vaccinations and will be spayed prior to placement. Right now she is suffering from a severe case of demodectic mange. As many of you will remember, we have seen this before with Dougie and Mandi. With proper treatment she will turn into a beautiful girl.

Ana is a very friendly, loving little girl. Even though she's had a very rough time she still is a very happy, playful girl. We have promised her that we will find her the perfect home to make up for the lack of love & care that she's had. Someone will be very lucky to call her theirs.






AnakinPH ID: #5139
Anakin is a young male that was found wandering around all alone.

He is heartworm negative and scheduled for his neuter.

Anakin is dealing with some demodex mange ( non-contagious).





AnastasiaPH ID: #992
Anastasia is a black female. She is 6 years old and an owner surrender due to bladder stones. She has had them removed and is recovering very well. She has also been spayed. She is current on her vaccinations and has been microchipped. She is heartworm negative.

From Anastasia (with some help from her foster mom): Hi, my name is Anastasia, and you are going to love me!! I’m a sleek, black beauty, and love everyone I meet. When I get excited I have a big smile on my face, and I’ll even start talking sometimes. I talked the whole way home from the vet when my foster mom got me.

I live with 3 other pugs and have an occasional visit with a cavalier spaniel puppy. I love that puppy!! We chase each other around the house and have all kinds of fun. I love to sit in the yard when the weather is nice and not too hot, and so does my puppy friend. I’m fine on my own if you want me to be your only dog, but I bet you end up with another one because I’m just too cute! I sleep in a crate at night, and I’m pretty good about settling down once the lights are out. I’m sure I would love sleeping snuggled up next to you though!

Now for the part that makes me a special pug. I came into rescue because I had some bladder stones that needed to be removed. The wonderful people at the rescue made sure I had the surgery I needed to remove them, and I feel so much better now. The only thing you have to worry about is giving me a special food so the stones don’t come back. The vet sells it, and it doesn’t cost any more than one of the premium foods like Blue Buffalo or Wellness.

So, that’s my story. I have lots of love ready for my new family, and I can’t wait to meet you!






AndrewPH ID: #769
Andrew is a fawn male. He was found wandering the streets with no tags or microchip. We believe he is about 4 years old. It doesn't appear that anybody's been looking after him, as he has tested heartworm positive. He also has severely impaired vision. He will begin heartworm treatment soon. Meanwhile, he has been neutered, microchipped and brought current on his vaccinations.

From Andrew's foster: Hi, My name is Andrew, and I am a 3-4 year old loving and playful boy. I used to have heartworms, but they were treated and I’m all healthy. I like to play dress-up, and even wore my Halloween costume two full days! My eyes get dry very easily, so you have to give me drops and ointment twice a day to keep them from getting all gunky. It is very easy to do, and I don’t mind it because it makes my eyes feel better. Now that my eyes are kept wet, I can see dogs walking by on the street and make sure they know I’m at watch in the front window. My foster Daddy says that I am only 16 pounds, but I think I am closer to 200 pounds. When I am not running and playing chase, I need to find a lap or shoulder to snuggle on. I love people very much, as well as my foster brothers and sisters. If anyone (2 or 4 legged) gets up off the couch or bed, I have to follow to make sure I don’t miss anything. This makes me a great leash-walker! At bedtime, I love to tunnel under the covers in the big bed. When it gets too hot, I come up and find a pillow to share. I really don’t like kids because they scared me when I couldn’t see so good, and I still get very nervous around them. My perfect forever home would not have any kids with high-pitched scary voices. I even get scared of the kids I hear on the TV. I would prefer not to be an only dog, because it helps me to have someone to follow around the house. I promise to always give you lots of love and kisses, and be there for you in the good times and the bad times. Would you please give me the forever home that I deserve?





AndyPH ID: #4810
Andy is an 11 year old fawn male who comes to us with his bonded brother Woody. He is heartworm negative.

From his foster: Andy comes to PH as an owner surrender with his bonded buddy Woody. He is 11 yrs old, neutered, HW negative, healthy and with the most beautiful tail ever!! He has come out of his shell and has so much personality and loves to tell you all about his day!! Andy is a real body bug, and although he is crate trained, he would much rather snuggle with you in the bed!

Andy and Woody are a wonderful pair that have so much love to give and would love to share it with you!





AngelPH ID: #624
Angel is a fawn female. She comes to us from a local animal control facility. She is about 4 years old. She is moderate heartworm positive and has begun treatment. She is also suffering from severe dry eye, which is all too common in pugs. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on her vaccinations.

From Angel's foster: Angel is a young thing who is very playful with other dogs, but she sits calmly and snuggles, too. She is short, stocky, and has almost a totally black head (and if she starts answering to "zit", blame her foster dad). She rides great in the car as long as she is on a lap, where she lays calmly. Angel is crate trained and will seek out the crate or her bed when she's had enough stimulation. Her eyes make no tears, so she requires alternating ointment and drops 4-6x a day to preserve what vision is left. She tilts her head up to get them and appears to realize eye meds make her feel better. Her impaired sight does not affect her at all, except she is a little hesitant with stairs, but she's getting better all the time. She jumps on and off the couch with no problem. To see a video of her at play, check out PugHearts' facebook page and you will see just how cute she is. She goes into "terrorist" mode 2-3 times a day, and is certainly good for a laugh. She even gets the older, more sedate pugs in my pack to play with strategic butt bites, play bows, and spins. She would do better in a

home with at least one other dog to play with, and the fewer stairs the better.





AngelicaPH ID: #5250
Angelica came to PugHearts is terrible condition. She was covered in ticks and large patches of hair loss across her body.

She is undergoing treatment, and looks and feels so much better already!

From Angelica (with some help from her foster): I’ve been told I was 4 but I sure don’t feel 4. I feel like I’m 2 and Foster mom said my teeth are sharp like a puppy. I had mange but I’m healing up and my hair is growing back. I love toys and really like tug of war with my foster brother. I like to be held as long as it is in the hugging position. I don’t potty in my crate and only had 2 accidents inside. I DO NOT like grass of any kind, wet or dry. I will get in it long enough to do my business and that’s it! The best thing I’ve discovered is beds, pillows and blankets. I even get to sleep in a big people bed at night.





AngeloPH ID: #4533
Angelo is a 1 year old fawn male. He was found wandering all alone with no tags or microchip.

From Angelo's foster: Angelo is twelve months old and HW negative. He has dry eye in his right eye but is completely healthy otherwise. He is potty trained and does well in a crate and plays well with other dogs and toys. He loves people and wants to cuddle and enjoy being part of the pack.






AngiePH ID: #5118
Angie is a 6 yr old pug mix. She is thought to be a pug / peke mix. Angie is severe heartworm positive and we have just completed bladder surgery to remove bladder stones.

She did well and will now be on a prescription diet for life to prevent the stones from coming back.

Angie will have to go through heartworm treatment prior to adoption.





AnnaPH ID: #4356
Anna is the sweetest, gentlest pug I have ever met. Fully potty trained and crate trained, she never would even attempt to get on the furniture unless you picked her up and placed her there yourself. She was my first pug foster with a long tongue, so it always made me laugh to see her so happy to sit or stand there with it out most of the time .. always in the brightest, happiest of moods. She gets along great with other dogs and is definitely not Alpha in any way. She loves a dog bed to get comfortable on and plays with toys when she is ready to. She is always ready to be on the go. You would never know she 8 or 9 years old. She weighs in about 18 pounds and i think she might like to dress up. She was always ready to put everyone else's harness on even though she already had hers on .. maybe that could have meant she was ready for a walk too! She loves treats and loves kisses! Mostly, she is ready for your love!





AnnabellePH ID: #551
Annabelle is a 2 year old female. She was not well cared for in her puppyhood. Annabelle was either stepped on or sat on as a young girl. This caused a spinal injury that she will live with the rest of her life.

Annabelle's walk and stance are different to help her be able to join the crowd and keep up (if not set the pace).

Please do not feel badly for Annabelle. She runs, plays tug of war, wrestles and generally acts like a normal young pug. Annabelle can have a few issues due to this injury. She drags one of her back feet when she is tired, so this must be monitored for sores. She occasionally has issues with fecal incontinence. Annabelle is heartworm negative, already spayed and ready to go.

Do not overlook this bundle of energy due to her injury. Annabelle is a pleasure and will add joy and excitement to your world.






AnniePH ID: #5
Annie is a sweet fawn female. She comes to us from a local shelter where she had been picked up from the streets so we don't know her history. We estimate she is about 8 years old. She is in good health though she does require drops to one eye for 'dry eye' - her vision is just fine. She has been spayed, microchipped and brought up to date on her vaccinations. She also had an umbilical hernia removed but that won't cause any further issues.

Annie is a very calm, serene girl. She is very friendly and loves to be loved on, but she is not an excitable gal. She prefers to sit back and relax. She is housebroken and gets on well with other animals. If you are looking for a true lap dog/couch potato, Annie might well be your girl!





Annie 2PH ID: #360
Annie is a fawn female. She is 1 year old. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on her vaccinations. She does have a scarred right eye which does not seem to cause her any issues. She is in excellent health.

From Annie's Foster: Annie is a very energetic, 1 year old, female, fawn. She loves to play and does very well with other dogs, even ones that are twice her size. She is also a very good eater, as most pugs are! When she isn't running around playing, she likes to lay in her bed and chew raw hide bones. She has never displyed any other chewing habits, such as on shoes or anything else laying around. Her foster parents are still working on potty training, but she is already doing a great job! Annie loves people! She is very comfortable approaching new people and will often lay on a strangers lap to be a part of the group. Annie is very affectionate and loves to cuddle on the couch and give lots of kisses. We hardley ever hear her bark, and if she does it's at excitement to see us come home. Annie would make a great pet for anyone who has another small pet at home that likes to play.





AnthonyPH ID: #834
Meet Anthony! He is a 4 year old fawn male. Anhtony appears to have not been well taken care, and came to PugHearts with a variety of ailments. With some TLC he has blossomed into a lovely pet, and the only effect of his whole ordeal is dry eyes—which are easily managed with daily drops.

Anthony is quite the character, and is extremely people oriented. He enjoys the company of other dogs (large, small, male or female), but he prefers to shower his affection on people! He is also very playful, and with the right squeaky toy will entertain himself for hours! We are working on reinforcing potty training and his forever family will most likely need to continue this reinforcement. Anthony is crate trained, and is comfortable being crated by himself or with other dogs. You will be hard pressed to find another guy as sweet and attentive as Anthony!






AntonPH ID: #4986
Anton is a young male that comes to PugHearts from a local shelter.

From Anton's foster: Anton is approximately 2 year old black pug. He is very much a puppy. He loves to go on walks. He is heartworm positive and it looks like he will be available after September. He loves to have his ears scratched.





ApolloPH ID: #964
Apollo is a fawn male. He is heartworm positive and will begin treatment shortly. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From Apollo's foster: Apollo is such an adorable little boy. He came to me scared and antisocial. When I would approach him his reaction would be that he thought I might try to hurt him. I was so sad for him.

He is now starting to open up and his youthful personality is coming out, a playful little boy who just wants love and attention. He has just started to cuddle, I think he's going to be a very big cuddler when he settles in with everyone completely, he loves to wrestle with any pup that is willing or with me, he's really a happy, wanting attention kinda boy.

His potty training is coming along nicely, he is starting to use the dog door on his own. When I'm away he is crate trained.

Apollo does have heartworm so he'll be ready for his forever home as soon as treatment is over. He's truly an adorable little guy that will fill a lucky household with love.





ApplePH ID: #6
Who's the Apple of your eye? This darling boy is sure to be! Apple is a gorgeous fawn male. He's a bit of a youngster - just barely 1 year old. We're not sure what his story is, but he was found wandering alone with no tags or microchip. When his owners could not be found he was turned over to us to find him a home that wouldn't let him go. Apparently nobody had been looking after him because he has tested low heartworm positive. He will begin treatment immediately and should convert to negative within the next couple of months. He has not been neutered but he will be this week. He has been brought up to date on his vaccinations and microchipped.

Apple is pretty much what you would expect for a young guy his age. He still has quite a bit of puppy in him and is very playful. He's a sweetie who loves attention. He will probably need to learn some house manners but since he's so young that shouldn't take long. He seems very eager to please and friendly.





AprilPH ID: #3188
April is a fawn female. She is 6 years old. She is heartworm negative. However, she came to us suffering from several large lacerations from what appears to have been another animal attacking her. She is recovering and we will post a full update once she settles into her foster home.





ArchiePH ID: #317
Archie is a black male. We believe he is about 5 years old. He was found wandering the streets alone with no collar or microchip. It's obvious that nobody has been looking after him as he is severe heartworm positive. He will begin aggressive treatment shortly. He has already been neutered and is now also current on his vaccinations and microchipped.

From Archie's Foster: Archie is one cool dude. He is very laid back and gets along with everyone in the house. His favorite things are (in this order) EATING, napping and taking long walks with the pack. He loves to sniff everything outside! Archie is usually the one lagging behind on our walks because he almost never takes his nose off the ground. He adorably barks in his sleep, and then wakes himself up. He has learned to sit and stay and will go into his crate on command. He has the cutest white markings on his chin, chest and front paws, as though he lay down in a puddle of white pain. He is a happy go lucky little guy and is great with children.





ArchiePH ID: #4572
Archie was found wandering a neighborhood all alone

From Archie's foster: Archie is a 2 year old little Fawn Male. He has just been neutered and made current on his shots. He is a skinny little boy, but he should gain some weight with good food and lots of loving. He came to PugHearts through no fault of his own!

Archie is a sweet little fellow and likes to be near his humans. He is kennel trained but prefers to sleep cuddled up with his people. He does not mark and has had no accidents in the house at his foster home! He has a good appetite though he is one of the slowest eaters for a pug that I’ve come across.

He is very happy and gets along with the other dogs at his foster home. I think he will be one of those dogs who doesn’t need a leash because he wants to follow you everywhere you go. He likes all sorts of people, even children!






AriaPH ID: #2115
Aria is an owner surrender due to no fault of her own. She is a friendly, happy girl who is 20 months old (2 yrs. old in August). We are working on housebreaking. She is kennel trained, although she likes to sleep in a bed with someone. She uses a doggie door. She will hold her own with the other pugs but doesn't show "alpha" symptoms. She is affectionate and likes to be in your lap. She is fairly small and weighs 18 lbs.





ArielPH ID: #1050
Ariel is a fawn female. She was thrown out of a car onto the beltway in her crate. A good samaritan rescued her and brought her to us for medical treatment. Though she did not suffer any broken bones, she is suffering from some neurological issues.





ArielPH ID: #484
Ariel is a fawn female. She is 3 years old. She comes to us from a local shelter. She is heartworm postive and will begin treatment shortly. She has been spayed, microchipped and brought current on her vaccinations.

ArizonaPH ID: #884
Arizona is a fawn female. She comes to us from a local shelter. We believe she is about 6 years old.

From Arizona's foster: Arizona is just the sweetest thing! She's incredibly adorable and you can't help but just want to hold and pet her incredibly soft fur and give her big hugs and love on her because she is just soooo loveable! She is a laid back girlie, house and crate trained. She chills in her crate when I'm gone, sleeps on the doggie bed or on the couch when I'm home and sleeps on the other side of the bed on the pillow at night. She is a special needs little girl who will have a special diet for the rest of her life due to kidney issues and is currently on antibiotics due to an infection and will need to continue these medications possibly for months until the infection is gone. Though this may sound like a lot, she really is a low maintenance little girl, she just has a some special needs, but she is well worth it. Whoever adopts her will be incredibly lucky.





ArniePH ID: #5052
Arnie is an 8 yr old male. He is heartworm negative and already neutered.

Arnie comes to PugHearts with bad skin, ear infections and renal insufficiency.

We are working with our vet to see if we can make him feel better and improve his kidney function.






Arnold 2PH ID: #353
Full Description Coming Soon!






ArthurPH ID: #904
Arthur is a fawn male. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations. He has had his left eye recently removed and is recovery very well.

From Arthur's foster: Arthur made an excellent debut at the Pet Expo. His personality is coming out now that he’s safe and feeling better after his eye removal surgery. The lack of one eye hasn’t stopped him at all. I suspect that he wasn’t able to see out of the bad eye for a while so his adjustment hasn’t been difficult.

He is such a loving boy. He’s starting to “talk” more around here so it can get kinda noisy when everyone gets going. He’s always at my feet and I have tripped over/stepped on him a few times because I didn’t see him. He lays on the tile splayed out with all 4 legs in different directions. It’s really cute. He sleeps in the doggie bed on the floor next to me or under our bed. He’s not a jump-on-the-furniture guy, which my husband really appreciates. He will play & cuddle on the floor. My 2 year old son really loves Arthur. His idea of feeding time is to take the kibbles and instead of giving them to Arthur, he tosses them all over the floor. Arthur then looks like a vacuum cleaner going after all of the kibbles. He gets along really well with our other dogs and is very gentle with my son. He is going to be a great little companion for someone. I am enjoying getting to know him and helping him get ready for his forever home.





ArthurPH ID: #4778

AshPH ID: #5091
Ash was born October 19, 2016. He was 3 days old when he came into PugHearts. Ash, his mom and siblings were rescued from a local shelter. Mom Autumn is a long bodied terrier mix weighing 8 lbs. and dad is unknown. Ash will remain a small dog. He has a gorgeous latte brown colored coat. He takes after his mom's terrier side with a longer fur coat. As I'm writing this, he is 7 weeks old and starting to wean from mom. He is healthy and fat and has great puppy breath and sharp teeth! His personality is puppy playfulness but on the reserved, quiet side. He will be ready for adoption January 2017.





AshleyPH ID: #4928
Ashley is a sweet heartworm positive female about 6-7 yrs old.

She has an undeveloped eye and will have to go through heartworm treatment prior to adoption.

From Ashley's foster: Meet Foster Ashley!!!

A six year old “winkie” (meaning she only has one eye), Ashley is a sweet girl who loves to snuggle and be loved on. She’s a Velcro pug and there’s nothing she likes more than going for rides in the car and on walks. Her perfect day is spending some time exploring outside, going for a ride in the car, and snuggling next to her human.

Ashley is perfectly behaved. She’s potty trained and crate trained. She gets along with the other dogs in her foster home and children. Ashley has no health problems and is ready for her forever home.





Ashley 2PH ID: #577
Ashley is a fawn female. She is 2 years old and came to us as an owner surrender. She is in good health. She has been microchipped, spayed and is current on her vaccinations.





AshtonPH ID: #3214
Ashton is a handsome deep apricot 4 year old neutered male who was surrendered to us when his owners didn’t have the money to treat his mouth infection. He is now receiving badly-needed vet care. He is heartworm negative, good with kids, reportedly housebroken, and a kind, gentle soul.

From Ashton's foster: Ashton is a wonderful 4-5 year old boy. This sweet boy came to us with an infection in his teeth so bad that pus was constantly draining from his mouth. He had a much needed dental and had several teeth pulled. That procedure and the antibiotics have done the trick. He is so handsome and so happy. I have yet to hear him bark. When all of the other dogs run around barking, he just quietly follows them with a smile. He loves to cuddle but he also will lay on the floor by himself or with the other dogs. He is great with kids and very gentle. He pays our cats zero attention and he is housebroken. He will make a wonderful member to a very lucky family!





AsiaPH ID: #8
Asia is a sweet fawn female. She is an owner surrender due to family changes along with her 'sister' Hillary. She is already spayed and is current on her vaccinations. She is 6 years old and in good health except for being a bit too 'fluffy.' She is now on a diet to help her lose some weight before the heat of summer.

Asia is housebroken and is very used to being in a home with a doggie door. She does great with other dogs as well as kids. She is a playful, sweet girl who loves to cuddle.





AstiPH ID: #3331
Asti is a 9 year old fawn male. He is heartworm negative, neutered and current on all his vaccinations.

From Asti’s foster: You would never know that Asti came from a puppy mill with his behavior and attitude. He is a loving and caring soul that constantly follows us around. He loves to give pug kisses and will do anything to get into your lap and cuddle on the couch or our favorite chair. He does fine on all floor surfaces and does ok on steps. He walks very well on a leash and follows simple commands. When you let him venture out on his own in the yard he can run a mile a minute. He has quickly bonded with our two pugs and started to follow around the much larger Golden Retrievers. While Asti has had limited access to children during his foster care, he has behaved exceptionally well offering pug kisses to any child who wants to pet him. While he has not had a lot of training, he has quickly learned to sit and to stay down. He has crate trained very well with zero accidents and when he needs to go to the bathroom he heads straight to the back door.

Who is ready to make room for Asti in their hearts and their home?





AstroPH ID: #779
Full Description Coming Soon!






AstroPH ID: #5117
Astro is a 4 yr old smutty fawn male. He comes to PugHearts following a death in his family.

He is heartworm negative and will be neutered and have a dental.

This cute guy will be a fun addition to any household.





AthenaPH ID: #5290
Athena is a fawn female that comes to PugHearts from the Rio Grande Valley. She has sustained massive trauma to her rear foot that will require the amputation of her leg. She is small and sick, but we will do all we can to help her heal and become the goddess she was born to be.

From Athena's foster: Athena's story is extremely sad but has a happy ending. She came to us from a shelter where she was dropped off severely underweight (really just skin and bones), covered in ticks and with open wound on her right hind leg. She was in a critical condition when she got to SLPH but the wonderful staff and Cindy were not about to give up on her.

A couple weeks went by, Athena put on a few pounds and looks so much better. Her leg started healing incredibly fast once she was feeling better and getting some good food. It is still not certain she will be able to keep it but we are doing all we can. In the unlikely event that she does get to keep it there is no chance at this point that the leg will ever be 100% again.

Now, that being said - none of the above slows her down one bit. She is a fighter like I have never seen, she runs around with the other dogs with no fear and tries to play tug of war with them. She loves being held and gives the best kisses. Really, you can hold her for hours. She never lost faith in humans despite everything she has been through. She is beautiful inside and out. I feel like regardless of what I write I will fail to describe her accurately. She amazes me every day and should be an inspiration to all of us.





AthenaPH ID: #833
Athena is a young fawn female who was found running down the street by a good Samaritan who caught her and called us. She is beautiful, a little shy of people, but LOVES playing with other dogs and toys. She hasn’t stopped chasing or being chased for at least 2 hours! Lots of puppy energy.





AtlasPH ID: #5401
Altas is a 6 yr old male.

He is happily heartworm negative and already neutered.

This sweet boy is so wonderful he charmed his transporters on the way to PugHearts and convinced them to go on and adopt him.

Way to go Atlas!





AtticusPH ID: #540
Atticus is a fawn pug mix. He mommy was a pug rescued by PugHearts shortly before his birth.

From Atticus' foster: Atticus is an adorable little male puppy that was born Jan. 16th. He seems to be the brainy one of the litter. He is the first to catch on to everything new. His parentage is a bit hazy. His mother is a pure pug but who knows about his papa? Though speculation is that his dad may have been a jack russell. He is such a sweet puppy and wants only to shower his puppy breath kisses on you. Who can resist that? He is very healthy and will be neutered before he is adopted out. He is looking for his forever home and would be an amazing fit for any family that doesn't mind the training of a new puppy. Can you give Atticus the home that he deserves?





AubreyPH ID: #4919
Aubrey is a young female that was surrendered to PugHearts.

She is heartworm negative and always happy.





AudreyPH ID: #376
Audrey is a beautiful fawn female. We estimate she is between 2 to 3 years old. Unfortunately she is heartworm positive and will be starting treatment soon. She is housebroken and gets on well with other dogs. Her foster Mom describes her as a "cuddler and a lover."

From Audrey's foster: There are not words to describe how beautiful, sweet and gentle Audrey is. She was aptly named, she could put on a pearl necklace and be Audrey Hepburn’s pampered pet in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. She acts like royalty. She will sit on my lap as long as I will sit still. Then she’s right on the couch when I sit back down waiting for me to cuddle her again. She is the perfect Pug! She is housetrained and she has never done anything wrong. She wasn’t sure about the eye drops at first but now she is fine with it. She LOVES to sleep in the bed! As you can probably tell, Audrey has stolen my heart and all it will take is one look from her beautiful eyes and she will steal yours also!





AuggiePH ID: #538
Auggie is a fawn pug mix. His mommy was a pug rescued by PugHearts shortly before his birth. He was born Jan. 16th, 2010. Auggie is in excellent health.

From Auggie (with a little help from his foster): "HI, my name is Auggie and I really am part pug-on my mom's side--and I am now ready for my forever family to come for me. I love everyone that I meet--girls more that guys--and would probably rather have a canine friend who wants to play than be alone. I think I would probably benefit from some training--or so my foster mom keeps telling me just before we sit down for some snuggling. I really love it when we snuggle on her bed for a short nap, but I am happy to sleep in my crate for the night if I must. I have a lot of energy 'cause I still a baby and really do need my play time. If there is anuthing dropped when 'mom' is cooking , I can usually beat her to it. I help that way.

When we are outside, I am very curious about everything, 'cause it's all new to me and I need to check it out to be sure it's ok. When my foster dad trimmed some bushes, I helped him move them around the yard--that was fun!! They just laughed abnd laughed with me. I like to hide under the bushes and pounce on my sister ou one of the other guys who come by and didn't know that I was there--then we run and chase and tumble together and have lots of fun.

My foster grandma uses a stick to walk with and I have learned to be careful around her and not get underfoot or play with her stick--it's kinda heavy anyway.

I am trying to learn how to be a good boy and my mom seems to love me a lot 'cause she is always telling me so and giving me hugs and kisses and belly rubs which I like. I now guess that the next thing I need is my forever family so that I can continue to grow into the best boy I can be. Sooo forever mom, come get me."






AuggiePH ID: #3165
Auggie is a fawn male. He comes to us from a shelter. He is 3 years old.

From Auggie's foster: Auggie is a 3 year old heartworm negative, fawn male. He has been neutered, brought current on his vaccinations and micro chipped. He had to have surgery to repair a lung torsion, but is healing nicely.

He is a terrific, little pug. He is house trained and knows how to use a doggy door. He will willingly go into a crate at night to sleep and can tolerate being crated during the day if necessary. Auggie Doggy just loves his belly rubs and will lean back into the crook of your arm so you can sit there and rub or lightly scratch his little belly for as long as you have time to do it. He gets along well with children and other dogs. He likes to sit in the "pug pool" out in my back yard and cool off when it's hot - he didn't even mind sharing it with the 2 toads that were in it. He knows to sit to get his treat and is a smart little boy.

Auggie is very deserving of a forever home looking for a little snuggle bug that will need to have special care taken to keep him from getting any respiratory infections. If you're looking for a sweet, playful pug, then he's your boy.





AugustusPH ID: #3247
Augustus is a black male. He is 2 years old. He has been neutered, microchipped and brought current on his vaccinations.





AuroraPH ID: #4990
Aurora is a 3 year old female that came to PugHearts from Pasadena Animal Shelter with sarcoptic mange. She is currently undergoing treatment and once her skin has healed, she will be spayed, and ready for her "furever" family!

From Aurora's foster: Aurora gets along with her foster grumble and especially loves to follow my 2 black pugs. This little girl has been in my care for almost a week and has had no potty accidents! She's content to snuggle and loves to follow me around the house. Aurora can't wait to go to her forever home! Could you be Aurora's perfect family?





AuroraPH ID: #4659
Aurora is a 10 year old fawn female with significant vision issues. She and her sister were living outside before they came to us.

From Aurora's foster: Aurora is a very pretty lady. She’s 10 years old and a little on the fluffy side. I can’t begin to tell you how extremely sweet she is. She is very timid about asking for attention or joining in any activities. But when I go pick her up to hold she almost purrs. She loves to be loved but she just doesn’t know how to ask. She absolutely loves sleeping with me, she cuddles up just as close as she can get and won’t move all night.

She has dry eye that wasn’t treated so she has vision issues. She can see but not very well. But it doesn’t seem to make any difference to her, she gets around just fine and finds anything she wants. She is HW+ so she will be with me for another 3 months.

Aurora is one of my favorites and she will be a great addition to any family that wants to just love on their baby.

Update: Heartworm treatment has now been completed!





AustinPH ID: #3294
Austin is a fawn male. He is 3 years old. He is heartworm negative. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on vaccinations.

From Austin (with some help from his foster Mom): Hello everyone my name is Austin, I am about 3 years old, HW-, and I'm a smaller guy in the under 18lb category. My foster family says I am lots of fun and a very well-mannered pug. I do not mark in the house, I know the dog door, yup im kennel trained (but shhhh I sleep in the human bed at night), and im good around other small and large dogs. After hearing all these wonderful things I wonder why my “old” owners gave me up… I am learning to be a loving pug and like to follow you around the house. When I came to PugHearts I had a simple little eye surgery to help my eyelids and I do have some impaired vision from the lack of care to my eyes up to this point now I just need eye drops once a day. Don’t worry this does not really slow me down but sometimes I get extra close to give you a kiss. The only other thing that you should know is I have what they call a luxating patella and a small back injury, I know I know big word for a small problem for a guy like me. It basically means one of my knee caps does not stay in place. I zig and zag more than I walk in a straight line, quite fun if you ask me. We are not sure if both of these injuries are from an accident or if I was born with them, ether way I still love to play. My back injury does not hold me back it just shows that I'm a strong pug that can overcome anything. A few of my favorite things are to play with my foster brothers and sisters (I like to get in the middle of them and play tug-a-war), watch you cook or clean, and snuggle up to you, oh and I love to be carried around so I can be with you. Will you consider me please ?





AutumnPH ID: #4528
Autumn is a young lady from the valley.

Autumn is a 2 yr old female that came to us with a significant case of mange.

She is (luckily) heartworm negative and has been spayed.

This sweetie is a ball of non-stop energy and keeps the pug boys in my house running.

She loves toys and cuddling up to any and all humans.

Autumn gets along with anyone, but will not take any bullying off other alpha dogs.






AutumnPH ID: #5090
Autumn is a terrier/chihuahua mix that delivered 4 precious little ones at a local shelter.

We were able to take her in and provide a safe and secure place for her to care for her new family.

Autumn is about 8 pounds and will be spayed as soon as she stops nursing puppies.

Her 4 babies are: Leif (M), Ash (male), Cedar (male) and Sage (female).

Autumn is a lover and (happily) heartworm negative.





AvaPH ID: #4766
Ava is an 8 year old female that was taken to a local shelter when the family was unable to care for her any longer.





AvaPH ID: #542
Ava is a fawn pug mix. Her momma was a pug rescued by PugHearts shortly before her birth. She was born on January 16th. Ava is in excellent health.

From Ava (with a little help from her Foster): Hello, my name is Ava. :-) I was born on 1/16/2010 after my pug mommy was rescued by PugHearts only 3 days earlier. I may look like a terrier, but I don’t really act like one. I enjoy lounging on the couch w/ my foster mommy and sometimes I like to play w/ my doggie foster brothers. I am a little shy when I first meet new people, but I warm up quickly. I am a very good girl and hardly ever bark or chew on things (other than toys that is). I am house trained and am currently working on crate training. Life is good, but I would REALLY like to find my very own forever home.





AvalonPH ID: #4466
Avalon came to PugHearts as an owner surrender due to her skin condition. She was treated for sarcoptic mange and is still being treated for seborrhea. She has gone from being an absolutely miserable pup, due to her itchiness, to being very comfortable. Her personality has just began to surface, but it is clear she is loving, easy going and ready to bond with a family. Avalon is great with other animals and children.

At the age of seven, Avalon is looking for a family to make happy and cherish.





AveryPH ID: #4852
Avery is a 7 yr old fawn female. She is heartworm negative and already spayed.

Avery is a character that wants to find a person that will adore her and treat her like a princess.






AxelPH ID: #539
Axel is a fawn pug mix. He mommy was a pug rescued by PugHearts shortly before his birth.

From Axel's foster: Axel is the cutest little puppy that ever lived (I am a bit biased though)! He was born Jan. 16th. He is the most affectionate one of his litter. He Just wants to be held and given some loving. His parentage is a bit hazy. His mother is a pure pug but who knows about his papa? Though speculation is that his dad may have been a jack russell. He is such a ball of energy and would be great for a household with children along with any of his other littermates. He is very healthy and will be neutered before he is adopted out. He is looking for his forever home and would be an amazing fit for any family that doesn't mind the training of a new puppy. Can you give Axel the home that he deserves?






B.B.PH ID: #309
B.B. is a black male. He is only 1 year old. He is an owner surrender through no fault of his own. He is in good health and is heartworm negative. He is not neutered but will be prior to placement. Is is current on his vaccinations and has been microchipped. B.B. is a cutie, but he obviously has not been given much training. He is learning the rules of the house and how to walk on a lead. He will need to go to a home with lots of patience and structure, as training a puppy takes a lot of time and consistency.





B.J.PH ID: #412
B.J. is a black male. He came to us as an owner surrender at 6 years old.

Update: My name is Buddy. When you had me my name was B.J. I just wanted to let you know how well I am doing. I have been at my new home for about a year and a half. You could not have found me a better mommy and daddy. Plus now I have a brother and three sisters. I lover to play with my brother Mr. C. He is a 105 pound labradoodle, but he knows I am the boss. I bully him sometimes. Mommy fusses at me but then I lick her and she forgets why she is upset with me.

Every night I get brushed and loved on before bedtime. Then, I wait patiently at Mommy's side of the bed until she picks me up and then I curl up in her arms and go to sleep. I am not a morning dog like my sister Buffy or the Kitten. I prefer to snuggle with mommy and daddy. And, Mommy loves to have me snuggle with her. Although, I was originally gotten for Daddy, I know who feeds me so I pay extra attention to Mommy.

Also, my daddy has cancer so I know how important it is to make Mommy feel better. While Daddy is sick I am the man of the house. I make sure I keep Mommy safe.

Oh you would not even recognize me. I have gained weight and I have a full coat of thick black hair. Mommy says I am the most handsome Pug around. I still have trouble with allergies but our vet Dr. Pickle and my mommy make sure I am well taken care of on a regular basis. So, I guess I am a success story. Thank you to all who helped me find my real home. And, I hope that other lost pugs find their way to their "real" owners.

Love,

Buddy





BabyPH ID: #9
Baby is a 7 year old fawn female. She is up to date on her vaccinations and is heartworm negative. She has been microchipped as well. She will be spayed prior to adoption. Baby is an owner surrender due to family changes. She is housebroken and gets on well with other pugs. In fact, Baby would do best in a home with another dog as she doesn't like to be left alone.

Poor Baby came to us with severely neglected teeth. She underwent surgery to have some extracted and it was found that she had an infection that had intruded into her jawbone. She had extensive surgery to remove the infected sections but has recovered completely. She is in good health.

Do not be fooled by Baby's age - she is no shy, retiring grandma! This little lady just adores toys and attention! She's even become quite adept at stealing toys from her younger foster sister. And she enjoys the occasional tail-chasing too. But when the time comes, she's quick to jump up on the sofa and cuddle in front of the TV. She's quite a little lover-girl!





BabyPH ID: #3266
Baby is a fawn female. She is 8 - 9 years old. She is heartworm negative. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on her vaccinations.

From Baby's foster: Baby is a female fawn who is an owner surrender through no fault of her own. She is approximately 8 years old. She is the sweetest little lady you'll ever meet! she is small framed but a little overweight (we are currently working on that) She gets along well with other dogs and cats. We don't have young children but I can't imagine there being a problem. She is house trained. She loves being praised for anything she does and of course treats!! She doesn't play with toys much but she loves playing chase with her humans. Currently she does NOT do stairs. We have to carry her up to bed and downstairs in the morning although she can do the 4-5 steps off the porch without a problem. She loves belly rubs and sleeping in the bed. We have not had to use a crate with her. Is there room in your life for this little bundle of love?





BabyPH ID: #5070
Baby is a precious girl from the San Antonio area.

She is very attached to her people and is a "velcro" pug.

From Baby's foster: Baby is a sweet little old lady who loves to snuggle and lay in the warm sun. She is heartworm negative and already spayed.

She will walk around the house about 30 minutes before dinner time talking to you letting you know she needs food. She has a beautiful lion's mane fur and loves her bath and to be brushed.






Baby DollPH ID: #4705
Baby Doll is a 7 month old blind black puppy who was found abandoned in a neighborhood park covered in fleas. The volunteers who picked her up fell in love instantly. She is very calm and snuggly for a puppy, and has no problems getting around whatsoever. She has been spayed, had some baby teeth removed, dewormed and vaccinated. She is dealing with a stubborn urinary tract infection, but will be adopted by her foster family when she is healthy. 10 lbs of love and play, she is perfect.





Baby GPH ID: #998
Baby G is a black male. He comes to us from a surrender of 6 pugs. He is in excellent health. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From Baby G's foster: Baby G is aptly named, he is a baby. He loves to cuddle and that is the extent of his activity. He sits on my lap as long as I will let him and lays back in my arms like a baby. In fact, if I’m not holding him the way he likes he will just flop on his back in my arms and fully expect me to catch him. He’s about the same size as a baby and sometimes it really feels like I’m holding one. He’s just too sweet for words!

His physical beauty is unsurpassed! He is absolutely gorgeous, there isn’t a picture that has been taken of him that truly shows how beautiful he really is. He is coal black with no white to be seen. He’s a compact little guy with a stocky body and legs. His face is perfect, with just the right amount of wrinkles and bright, coal black, shinny eyes.

There isn’t a single thing wrong with Baby G, he’s ready to go and find his perfect family. He was one of six pugs that came in at once and they were living in a house without human companionship except for feeding times. He is really very not assertive and would not do well with a fur sibling that is dominant. I believe he would like children that are more calm and not boisterous or physical. He’s a quiet little guy and just needs to be loved. It will take just one look from those eyes and you will be lost forever!!





BaconPH ID: #3183
Bacon is a 7 yr old that is heartworm negative. He a sweet boy with a low key kinda personality. He has bladder issues which will require a special diet for the rest of his life, other than that he is healthy and ready for his forever home. I haven't fostered a black pug in a while, so I'm loving watching his chunky butt waddling around the house! : )





BaconPH ID: #4636
Bacon is a 2 year old, heartworm positive male. He was found wandering all alone.

From Bacon's foster: From Bacon’s foster: Bacon is a sweet 2 year old little boy with a lot of love to give. He is housebroken but still has an occasional accident in the house, but he has greatly improved. He likes to sunbath on the patio and belly rubs. He is a hearty eater and mealtimes are he is favorite part of the day. He gets very excited about them and if you aren’t fast enough, he will bark at you and tell you. He has learned and is working on basic commands and his manners. He gets along great with other dogs and likes to cuddle up with them during naptime. When he is not sleeping, he follows us around the house. Very gentle with children and has no issues sleeping in his kennel. He does have heartworms and will be treated soon, but this doesn’t hinder him in any way. He seems to have some vision problems at times, and he requires eye drops twice a day for dry eye. Once he is available for adoption he will make a great addition to any family.

Update: Heartworm treatment has now been completed and he has a pending adoption!





BaileyPH ID: #4342
Bailey is a black female. She is about 9 years old.

From Bailey's foster: Bailey is a 9 year old beauty. And I do mean beauty, she could hold her own in any Pug Beauty Contest! She is an owner surrender due to family changes and is AWESOME!! She is HW-. Bailey was in a family with young children and when I picked her up she was licking the baby on the floor. She is such a wonderful girl! She is housetrained and well behaved. She very seldom barks and is quite a nice companion. She likes to be with her human (as most pugs do) and is also quite happy to be lying next to me. Bailey has issues with her back legs and can’t jump on the couch or climb stairs. She will make a great addition to any family.





BaileyPH ID: #10
Bailey is a handsome fawn male. He is 3 years old. He was adopted from an animal control facility by someone who was then unable to keep him. He has been microchipped, is up to date on his vaccinations and recently neutered. He is heartworm negative and on preventative.

Bailey is a very playful boy who would enjoy being around other dogs and children. He does have an eye condition, keratitis pigmentosa, which means he has chronic dry eyes and some limitations to his vision. This is a very common condition in pugs due to their protruding eyes. However, with daily drops he should have improvement. He is otherwise healthy.

Bailey is a sweetheart of a boy who needs a family who doesn't mind giving him eyedrops twice a day and who is ready to handle this bundle of energy. Though he likes to be petted, it does not appear that anybody has spent much cuddle-time with Bailey. So he will also need a family that can teach him how important cuddling is to a pug!





Bailey 2PH ID: #372
Bailey is a handsome 4 year old fawn male. He is in good health and is heartworm negative. He does have some current skin itchiness but we believe that is from his fleas which we have cleared. He has been neutered and is current on his vaccinations. He is a big boy - he currently weighs 24 lbs - but is not overweight. He's just a big guy.

He is full of energy and gets on well with other dogs. He is housetrained and does not mark. He knows his name and follows basic commands like Sit and Come. He seems to be a very well behaved fellow who is looking for a home to be a part of.





Bailey 3PH ID: #546
Bailey is a black female. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on her vaccinations.

From Bailey's foster: Bailey is a very unique pug, not just in the way she looks but her personality pretty special too. Firstly, she is very nimble and limber and can jump very high onto things and land on her feet like a cat. This unique skill works to Bailey's advantage as she can always jump up to where you are and be close to you. VERY close! And she gives lots of pug kisses. Secondly, Bailey is a lady. In fact, she's so delicate that she even lifts one of her back legs to pee. Since Bailey is a bit of a prima-donna, she would do best in a home where she is the only dog so she can be the center of attention at all times. She gets along OK with other dogs, but she's a bit of an instigator and drama queen.





Bam BamPH ID: #4402
Bam Bam is a 4-5 yr old smutty male. He is severe heartworm positive and will have to go through treatment.

He was living outside and came to us after a kind person convinced them family to let her take him in.

Bam-Bam has an adoption pending.






BambiPH ID: #957
Bambi is a fawn female and is about 3 years old. She was found wandering the streets with Thumper.

She was initially shy when we first met but within 5 minutes was trying her best to lick my face. One of her sweetest features became evident on the car ride home from the vet – she has a beautiful singing voice! From all I can tell, she actually enjoys car rides but also occasionally makes a sweet mewing noise – probably because she’s excited to see a new place. Her favorite spot is wherever I am – preferably in my lap. Once she got a regular eating / walking schedule I had no issues with accidents in the house. Nor have I had any issues with chewing, etc. She is very energetic & loves jumping from couch to coffee table to loveseat and back. Bambi is heartworm negative and is a healthy petite pug. She does have a slightly malformed right eye and requires only a daily eyedrop and ointment.

Bambi and Thumper are a bonded pair, so they need to stay together. The two are inseparable and love to play / sleep / walk together.





BanditPH ID: #11
Bandit is an absolutely gorgeous fawn male. He is 2 years old and comes to us as an owner surrender. His original owner passed away and he has not found the right home since. Unfortunately in all the shuffling around, somebody neglected to keep Bandit on his heartworm preventative. His is now heartworm positive and will be starting treatment immediately. He is in otherwise good health except for being a bit thin. He has been brought up on date on his vaccinations and microchipped. He will be neutered prior to placement.

Bandit is a very sweet, gentle boy who obviously had a loving owner at one time. He is very well behaved and even knows commands like 'sit!' But it looks like since he lost his owner people have not been too kind to him. Bandit is a very timid little guy who needs to be loved and cuddled. He would not do well in a home with lots of other animals or small children due to the noise and excitement level. This little guy needs a place to chill out and a safe, loving environment in which we know he will thrive and come out of his shell.





Bandit 2PH ID: #276
Bandit is a 2 year old fawn male. He is an owner surrender. He is heartworm negative and in good health. He has been neutered, microchipped and current on his vaccinations.

From Bandit's Foster: Bandit is a sweet 2 year old male. He loves to cuddle. He is very playful gets along well with other dogs. He loves being with people. Bandit loves to follow you around and he is learning how much fun it is to play with toys.





BarbiePH ID: #640
Barbie is a black female. She is 5 years old and an owner surrender. She is in good health; she is heartowm negative. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on her vaccinations.





BarnabusPH ID: #4609
Barnabus is a sweet 7 yr old male. He comes to us after changes in the family living situation. He is neutered.

From Barnabus' foster: Barnabus is a well-behaved snuggle-pug! He is potty trained, sits for his dinner and crates well. He doesn't regularly sleep in our bed, but the few times we allowed it, he went straight to the foot of the bed, curled up and didn't make a peep all night! He is in good health. He has vision problems from dry eye, but it doesn't slow him down. Even with limited vision, he handles stairs well and jumps on the couch when invited. He is good with children and other dogs. His favorite activities are getting belly rubs and eating! He doesn't have separation anxiety, but he greats with lots of kisses when we get home. Barnabus is a jewel and would make a great addition to any home.





BarnabyPH ID: #12
Barnaby is an adorable fawn male. He comes to us from a local shelter. We estimate he is about 10 years old. He has been brought current on his vaccinations, neutered and microchipped. He also had a teeth cleaning which obviously has not been done in a long time as he needed several teeth pulled due to cavities. His remaining teeth are in good shape and he shouldn't have any further problems if looked after properly. He also has the "dry eye" we see so much in pugs that have been outside for a long time. This means his eyes don't produce enough lubrication and he will need drops daily from here on out.

Update from his foster: Hi, my name is Barnaby and my foster mom says I am the sweetest pug (she’s smart). I get along well with all kinds of dogs. I am about 10 years old and well mannered because I don’t jump up on the furniture or pull at my leash on my walks. However I can get upset if I am left in a crate and I will protest loudly. I really do better if you use a baby gate and leave me in one of the rooms. I am a talker, and will greet you when you get home.. I will follow you everywhere all day long and at night I will snuggle up to you in your bed, and I barely snore at all. I hope I find a home with someone who is at home with me a lot, cause I love to be around my people.





BarneyPH ID: #785
Barney is a fawn male. He is 4 years old and an owner surrender. He is in good health; he is heartworm negative. He has been neutered.

From Barney's Mom: Barney is an intense little fellow with vivacious curiosity and expressive personality. His energy and gusto bring to mind John Travolta on the dance floor in Saturday Night Fever. He has a lot of spunk and adds random excitement to my house. There's a lot to love about Barney, he is conversational and actually attempts to answer questions when asked and offer constructive criticism (when not asked). He gets a funny look in his eye when he's formulating his response, his mouth forms an "O' and the answer is delivered with absolute conviction.

He is a beautiful boy with a super soft coat and deep wrinkles on his forehead. He is heart worm negative, neutered, and healthy. He also

appears to be allergy-free, which is a rare gift for pugs. His only medical problem is that his hip causes him a little discomfort, he will have to take pain medications for the rest of his life. He is mostly potty-trained and has marking tendencies which we are working on. Once his manners are in place, he will be quite the super-star pug.

BartholomewPH ID: #5161
Meet Bartholomew. He is a 4 yr old male owner surrender due to changes in the family. He is heartworm negative.

From Bartholomew's foster: Bartholomew is 4 years old and came to PH as an owner surrender, unaltered, and in need of nares surgery, . Bart is on the smallish side, very handsome, and has the softest fur! When Bart arrived in his foster home he behaved aggressively when redirected or when placed in the kennel. He growled, and he even bit his foster dad once. After a short time and behavior modification (he was taught his place in the pack) such as kenneling at night, no sleeping with the humans, no jumping on the furniture, and getting fed last. This worked like magic and he's now gentle, easy, and fun! He would probably do best in a household without small children and his new family should allow him time and space to warm up. He loves toys, especially plush ones, soft dog beds, soft human beds, sitting next to you, and seeing you when you walk through the door. He is possibly the best foster we've ever had.





BartleyPH ID: #5200
Bartley is a 5 yr old fawn male. He comes to PugHearts looking for a family to love him and his best friend Sock Monkey (toy).

This guy is a lover and cuddler. He is heartworm negative and ready to go!






BasilPH ID: #4490
Basil was found running loose in a neighborhood without any tags or microchip. He was taken in by a good family to keep him safe.

From Basil's foster: who ever adopts this little guy will not be sorry. He gives many kisses, his teeth look good; I guess that he is approximately 3 years old. He understands no; come; and his name. He is very itchy, and has some skin issues, to be determined by SLPH.





BaxterPH ID: #4524
Baxter is a fawn male. He is 9 years, heartworm negative and already neutered.

From Baxter's foster: Greetings, I am Baxter, my foster family calls me Baxter Bear. As you can see I am a beautiful nine year old with an adorable face. I came to PugHearts through no fault of my own. I am a calm and loving gentleman. I have recovered from a skin allergy and am ready to find a home. I get along well with children and adults. I also get along with other dogs. I am a gentleman in the house and prefer to spend time in my crate during day. I am a hearty eater and love the backyard. My foster mom thinks I would be a great addition to any family especially with a little boy or girl. I am waiting patiently for my new home.





BaxterPH ID: #664
Baxter is a fawn male. He comes to us from an animal control facility. We believe he is about 6 years old. He appears to be in good health; he is heartworm negative. He has been neutered, microchipped and brought current on his vaccinations.

From Baxter's foster: Baxter is a dainty pug weighing in at 18 pounds. He arrived at our house with a bad cold. But once he was feeling better a very different and cool dog came out. Baxter loves to watch videos on Youtube. He also finds Animal Planet interesting and will paw at the screen. This just shows how smart he is. He likes soft squeaky toys and rawhides or hooves. He lives well with the 5 other dogs except if one tries to take a toy from him. Then he will do a quick flare up. He does not like to share. This sweet little dog is potty-trained and learned the dog door within the first day so he is no longer crated. He loves to go on walks, and as soon as I sit down he is in my lap and goes to sleep. He currently is allowed to sleep on the bed. He snuggles up close and that is it for the night. Baxter would do well either as an only dog or with another as long as the other dog isn't too pushy. He is not pushy with the other dogs. He prefers to concentrate on the humans in the household. He is not a yappy dog. Instead he gets attention with a small whimper. There is a lot to this little dog. He makes a very nice companion.





BazookaPH ID: #896
Bazooka is a fawn male. He comes to us from a hoarder seizure situation from out of state. He is somewhere between 6 to 8 months old.

From Bazooka's foster: Bazooka is one of the Kandy Kids from OKC. He’s quite the cute little guy. He’s about the same age as the girls but he’s quite a bit larger than they are. He’s going to be a very manly pug. He’s absolutely beautiful.

Bazooka is very active and rarely settles down for more than a few minutes. Then he’s off again. He and his counterpart (Goober) are chewers and I have to watch them like a hawk because they seem to have a great liking for cords. I’ve taped everything down that I can but if there’s one available they are all over it. Luckily I have wrought iron tables because they have been caught chewing on them also. Bazooka will take a lot of time and attention to keep him safe and to train him in the ways of what is proper behavior. He is very social and loves to be around me, he just isn’t always aware of how to act. The water bottle is a very handy tool. I’m not impressed with his potty habits, either. When I first got him he would run straight out the door and pee on the closest tree, he still does that but he also pees on things in the house now. In fairness to Bazooka, I do have a lot of dogs and sometimes that is the reason they misbehave. Sometimes when they go to their new home they magically stop.

Bazooka is a really sweet guy. He will be a great pet for someone that wants to have an active dog that interacts with them. As with all puppies, he will take some dedicated attention to behavior issues. In a few months his new family will read this bio and wonder what dog I was talking about!





Bea PH ID: #328
Bea is a gorgeous senior fawn female. We estimate she is about 10-12 years old. She comes to us from a local shelter so we don't know her background. However, it looks like she hasn't been anybody's pet for a while. Thankfully she is heartworm negative but her nails were so overgrown that they had grown into the pads of her feet. She has one "small" eye that never developed - probably has been that way all her life. She sees fine with the other one and probably doesn't know her vision is different than other dogs. She has a bit of a skin issue right now as she seems to have a flea allergy. And living on the streets wouldn't help that at all. But now that she's in our care that should clear. She is a sweetheart of a girl that deserves to be somebody's pampered pet.

BeauPH ID: #4971
Beau is a sweet gentleman that was found wandering all alone.

From Beau's foster: Beau is an absolutely gorgeous, cobby young male with a dense coat and a very flat face. He has been neutered and brought up to date on his vaccinations. Beau is heartworm positive and will be unavailable for adoption until late fall, which is a good thing since he needs to learn better manners. In a short time in his current foster home he has almost ceased marking and is learning that he can’t own his people or his favorite female member of his foster pack. He has learned not to get on the couch unless invited, and happily hangs out in a doggy bed in the living room. Loves belly rubs and has one of those soft “woo-woo” barks that can’t help but make you smile. He’s also a king of the “froggy” pose. He’s sharing crates and doggy beds with others and loves to cuddle in the bed at night. Uses the doggy door on his own. He needs a loving family that will continue to make him follow the rules and not get suckered in by that adorable face.

From Beau's foster: This sweet little man is Beau. He is a fawn male, about 7 years old, and is an owner surrender. He is in good health, heartworm negative, current on his vaccinations, neutered and microchipped. Beau came to us when his elderly owner sadly passed away. He is delightfully sweet and extremely adorable as you can see from his pictures. Beau gets along great with kids, other dogs, and isn’t too worried about the cat laying about the house. He only gets upset with the other dogs in the house when they are chewing on something he wants, so he’ll stand there and barks at them, but he will get a little growly and upset if one of the dogs gets to close while he is enjoying a nice deer antler or beef tendon. I just make sure everyone has something to occupy themselves with so there are no unhappy pups.

Beau loves to snuggle up next to you on the couch or bed. He doesn’t have to be on top of you, but he will happily keep your leg warm. He is a great companion. He will follow you wherever you go in the house, he doesn’t try to go out the front door when you open it, and he learns your habits quickly. As soon as I lean down to put on his harness, he stands up for me on his back legs and offers his front paws. He also does this when you lean down to pick him up. Such a cutie! When I come home from work he runs over and sits down until I get everything put away. Then he’s ready for his hello scratches and kisses.

Part of Beau’s adorable charm is his little tongue that sticks out on the side at all times. Pug kisses are awesome, but sideways kisses from Beau are the BEST! He is a very laid back boy who just wants to hang out with the family. He is house trained and knows how to use a dogie door, though he can be a little lazy about using it sometimes. When you tell him “crate” he walks in a circle around the living room before going in, but I’ve found if you have a treat ready for him he’ll spin a couple of times and run right in. He does not have to be kenneled, as he’s past the phase of chewing things he shouldn’t and doesn’t have an issue with marking or having accidents in the house. Beau would make a great addition to any family looking for a low energy lovable pug.






BeauPH ID: #236
Beau is a sweet fawn male. He is 9 years old and comes to us from a puppy mill where he has been used for breeding. He has now been neutered so he can relax and enjoy his "retirement." He is current on his vaccinations and has been microchipped. He is in excellent health.

Beau is a cuddler. He loves nothing better than to snuggle up with a human and keep their lap warm. He is a sweet, gentle fellow who has a lot of time to make up for. Now that he knows what it's like to be a pampered pet and not a "working" dog, he is ready to become your new best friend.





BeaudreaxPH ID: #13
Boudreaux is a gorgeous 2 1/2 year old fawn male. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on all of his vaccinations. He has no health issues.

Boudreaux is an absolute sweetheart. He is very even-tempered and is a 'shadow' following you from room to room, lying down quietly beside you. He also enjoys playing with toys. He gets along very well with other dogs, though he tends to be a bit timid when with a large group. He is definitely not an Alpha dog. He gets along well with cats too as well as older children.

He is housebroken and knows how to use a doggie door. He rides very well in cars and walks well on a lead. He is learning some basic commands but already comes when called. Boudreaux is a wonderful dog who will make someone a fantastic companion. So if you like kisses and having a soft little furball sleep on your pillow at night, Boudreaux might just be the puggie you've been looking for!





BeauregardPH ID: #14
Beauregard was rescued from a local shelter, so his history is unknown. He is estimated to be about 8 years old, which means he has just entered middle age! He is a beautiful dark fawn pug with a touch of distinguished grey around his face.

Beauregard has recently been neutered and had several teeth pulled. He is in excellent health. He is current on all vaccinations and has been microchipped.

He is a sweet, gentle soul who loves to be cuddled. He still has a bit of playfulness in him and gets along well with other dogs. If you're looking for a calm, serene companion then Beau is for you.

It does not appear that Beau has been the pampered indoor pet he should have been, and therefore he has needed some housetraining. However, he does respond well to commands and seems eager to please.

Please consider a mature pug like Beau - there is no more rewarding or fulfilling feeling than knowing you have given an older pug a new lease on life.





BeautyPH ID: #983
Beauty is a 2 year old black female who was turned into a local kill shelter as a stray. She has some dermatitis around her ears and neck, and could stand to gain a pound or two but appears to be in good health otherwise. She is full of energy, and has a vast array of whines, whimpers, and other “talking” sounds. She is quite affectionate. Look at that face: isn’t it obvious why we named her Beauty?





BeautyPH ID: #5135
Beauty is a 13 yr old female that comes to PugHearts due to changes in the health of her previous owner.

She has some skin issues and ear infections, but is already under the care of the vet.

Beauty is blind, but super squishy and loveable.





BebePH ID: #2144
Bebe is a tiny 5 year old smutty/silver fawn female found living on the streets in the 5th Ward of Houston covered in fleas. At 10 lbs, she’s seriously underweight, and needs to put on at least 4 lbs before she can be spayed. Miraculously, she is heartworm negative. She has been microchipped, vaccinated, had a badly needed nail trim, and is now in foster care getting lots of love and groceries.





BeccaPH ID: #2151
Becca is a fawn female. She comes to us from a local animal control facility.

From Becca's foster: Becca is just a doll ... She is approximately 6-7 years old and is one of the most easy going pugs who prefers to spend most of her time sleeping and then snoozing some more. After a nap, she might stroll up to one of the other pugs and do a little dance to see if she can get someone to play [it only lasts a few minutes] or if you walk up to her, she will flop on the floor for you to pet her belly. After that, the bed must magically call her back and on with more snoozing. When it is night time, she likes to sleep in bed with us and is right next to us.

She is house trained - she does use a doggie door and does not seem to have any aggression issues ... She gets a little possessive of toys but does not have any issues around food. Her teeth are not in good shape so her food has to be moistened with water and we include wet food.

Finally, she appears to be deaf or hard of hearing and she does have bad back knees - you can tell when she walks that she has trouble so she might need help up ont the couch or bed. Regardless, she is full of love and sweetness.





BeccaPH ID: #641
Becca is a fawn female. She is just 1 year old. She is an owner surrender. She is heartworm negative and already spayed. She is current on her vaccinations.





BeefyPH ID: #4783
Meet Foster, Beefy.

Beefy is a 3 yr old male. Heartworm negative and already neutered. He has perfect manners and LOVES to play. He is very much a Velcro pug and enjoys being with his human. He has the cutest set of teeth and wrinkles. An ideal home will include another dog as he truly loves playing. He is great with kids as well. If you want a cuddly boy this is it!



Beefy is a larger pug and a big love. He is heartworm negative and already neutered.

Tonight he is on my lap and we are chatting about the good life to come.





BeignetPH ID: #909
Foster Beignet (aka Benny) is 7-8 yrs young, HW-, UTD on vaccinations, and neutered. Benny is house broken and crate trained. He loves playing with toys, getting belly rubs, sleeping on laps, sleeping in the human bed, (I think you get the idea...he loves being with his humans). He is very well behaved, comes when called (although he probably isn't too far away), and enjoys taking baths.

Although Benny is blind, (and please don't tell him he is, as it might hurt his feelings!), he has no challenges with maneuvering and mapping out his area. Benny mastered the doggie door in under 30 minutes, AND mapped out his new foster home in approximately 2 hours.

If other pets step on or bump into Benny when he is sleeping or preoccupied, he may become startled (and possibly snap). For this reason, I would not recommend a home with children should an incident of this nature occur. This is for his safety, as well as that of a child. He has shown absolutely NO aggression towards a human (adult or child).

Benny would love being an only child anyway, as he just can't get enough of his human.

Benny is an amazing little man you would be so lucky to have! He is looking for his forever home, could it be you? If so, please ask for Beignet on your adoption application. Benny says "Thanks for considering me!"





BellaPH ID: #15
Bella is a sweet black female who was found on the streets by a good samaritan who called us to come rescue her. She is estimated to be between 3 to 4 years old.

As she was a stray, we do not know her history. She is a sweet, timid soul who has lost her faith in humans. She has been brought up to date on her vaccinations and has been microchipped and spayed.

For those of you who have been following Bella's story, you will notice the huge difference in her appearance in these updated photos. Poor Bella was suffering from a severe skin condition when she came to us. She has now finished her treatments and as you can tell she is now the beautiful puggy we alway knew she would be!

Bella is a cuddly sweetheart who needs someone who will shower her with affection and love her for the beautiful pug she is inside and (now) outside.





Bella 2PH ID: #16
Bella is a beautiful fawn female. She is 3 1/2 years old and in excellent health. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on all of her vaccinations.

Bella is an owner surrender. Her family travels quite a bit and liked to take her on trips with them, but Bella does not do very well on car trips. She has a bit of a nervous tummy and had problems every time she went on trips. So, her owners thought Bella would be better off with someone who was a 'homebody' like her. She's a very sweet girl who is housebroken and gets along very well with other dogs. But she just wants to hang out at home. So now we need to find her that new home and that new owner that wants to be a 'homebody' with her.





Bella 3PH ID: #288
Bella is a fawn female who we estimate to be 5 or 6 years old. She has been brought current on his vaccinations, microchipped and spayed. She is in good health.

From Bella's foster: It is apparent that she had been previously cared for as she is in good health (heart worm negative) and well groomed. Most of the time she is all lady. However, she can be ill-tempered to the other male dogs in the house. She is house broken. She loves to sit by your side or on your lap, and follow her foster parents around. She knows how to play with toys, but is learning how to play with other dogs. She can be somewhat aggressive when playing with people. She play bites but does not hurt you, and she growls and shows her teeth when playing, which we think is her way of playing. We would not recommend her for a family with young children. She has tended to show more affection to her male foster parent. She would be especially good for a single dog home.





Bella 4PH ID: #581
Bella is a fawn female. She is 5 years old and an owner surrender through no fault of her own. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on her vaccinations.

From Bella (with a little help from her foster mom): Well do I have a story to tell you! This nasty economy caused the only human parents I have known in my 5 years to lose one of their jobs, and they had to move to a townhome where pets were not allowed. So, they loved me so much that they found Pughearts, through this thing they call....the internet??? Anyway, they sent an email to some people who then sent emails out to THEIR people and found my foster mom. I miss my family, but they loved me so much, that I come with a starter kit for my new family, kind of like an incentive package :)

So here is my list of attributes: Female (spayed), 5yrs old (in myprime), HW negative (of course!), house trained (is there any other way?), a bag of toys & goodies & collar & leash & food (hellooooo, no startup costs!), petite, height & weight proportionate, fresh manicure, respond to simple commands, and a ZEST for life! I can spin circles in quick succession, I can run and play with other dogs, large or small, with children, and don't even mind cats! I bark at anyone that dares to knock on my door, and tell you in no uncertain terms when I am hungry, or need to use the facilities....I like to talk (helloooo! I'm a GIRL!). In the interest of full disclosure, I must admit that I have a bit of itchy skin from, dare I say it.......fleas! But they are gone now and my skin is on the mend. As you can see from my portfolio of head shots, I only have one eye, but have no problem seeing perfectly! Please consider the entire package, but know that I will love you like you've never known if you adopt me for life.............I'm WAITING!!!! So pick up the phone already, I have another mani/pedi appt. to get to!





BelladonnaPH ID: #365
Belladonna is a gorgeous fawn female. She is a one year old girl who was turned into a shelter by her family. We cannot imagine why. She is beautiful, hyper and everything a 1 year old female should be. She will be seen by our vet this week for her spay and to update her vaccinations. She appears to be very healthy.

She is doing great with multiple dogs and is scared of nothing. She is smaller and thinks chase is the best game ever. Belladonna would prefer a house with lots of activity and at least one other dog to keep her company (and amused.)





BellatrixPH ID: #4668
Bellatrix is a 6-7 year old black female. She is from a local shelter and is being checked out by our vet.

From Bellatrix (with some help from her foster): Hi there, my name is Bellatrix. I am a black female pug, about 6 or 7 years old. I have heartworms so will not be adoptable until late summer at the earliest. However, that does not slow me down much! I am a very good house dog as I almost NEVER have an accident in the house. I really like to go for walks and prefer to do my business away from home. I am kennel trained, though my foster mom gives me full run of the house. Sometimes I sleep in her bed and sometimes I sleep on ‘my chair’. I totally get along with my buddy Wugi. We can lick the same peanut butter spoon without fussing about who got the most! I could live in a home as the only dog or with a friend. I am fast and agile but I don’t do any of those naughty things like jump up on the dining room table. I don’t bother the cat much. I would love to have a yard where I could chase the birds and squirrels! I am good when getting a bath. I love playing tug of war with the towels after my bath! I have very soft fur. I do talk a lot. And I make really fast circles when my mom is fixing my food! Come and meet me at an event or ask your adoption coordinator about me. I am worth waiting for!





BellePH ID: #4767
Belle is an older lady that was surrendered to PugHearts due to medical issues.

From Belle's foster: Foster Belle is a sweet, gentle soul. We call her Belle Jolie, because is just tiny and gorgeous. She is 8 years old and came to pughearts as an owner surrender. Belle is very polite with excellent house manners. She is fully potty trained, and very laid back. She gets along marvelously with other dogs, cats and she loves children. Belle is very gentle and she loves to spend her days snuggling on the couch with her family. Her favorite things are belly rubs, soft blankets, and additional pillows on the couch!





BellePH ID: #5180
Belle is a beautiful 7 yr old female. She comes to PugHearts with a skin infection and untreated dry eye.

She is heartworm negative and will be spayed as soon as her skin condition has cleared up.






BellePH ID: #17
Belle is an 8 year old fawn female. She is 8 years old. She is an owner surrender due to family changes. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on vaccinations. She is heartworm negative. She is in very good shape but does suffer from 'dry eye' that is so common in pugs and therefore needs daily drops to her eyes. She does have vision loss due to this condition.

Belle is a sweet girl that is used to living with children. She also gets on very well with other dogs.

From Belle's foster: Belle has finally got to the point that she fully trust us. We believe that she had a hard time with all the changes in her life, she really did not feel comfortable about pushing the envelope. Now, she is in charge of our house and dictates policy around here. She went to the vet last Saturday and she is in good health and she is current with all her shots and treatments. We have let her gain a few pounds, so we are in the process of cutting back on her two meals and treats. She weights 25 pounds and the vet wants her back around 20 pounds. She is not happy about the reduction in her treats after her comes in from using the bathroom.





BenPH ID: #408
Ben is a fawn male. He comes to us from a shelter so we don't know his history. He is between 4 to 5 years old. He is in pretty good health except for a case of mange which is being treated. He is heartworm negative. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From Ben's foster: He is one cool puggie. The perfect balance of snuggle bunny and play companion. He wags his whole body and follows you around the house making "C" curves in alternating directions with his body. He's housebroken and does not mark. He's a little underweight for his size which is kind of tall with large-boned legs, and his coat is kind of rough; but with the way he loves to eat that won't last long. He fit in seamlessly with our pack, playing with the playful ones and deferring to the dominant members. My alpha bitch is in love (as are we), and she washes his face and ears and play bows to him. He loves rawhide chewies, and will calmly sit on your lap, by your side, or cuddled next to you in the bed (his favorite spot.) He rarely barks or licks, but does have an array of whimpers and grunts - especially when wrestling with human or dog. This guy would make a perfect companion for anyone.





BenPH ID: #4947
Ben is a 5 year old male. He is heartworm positive and dealing with some bad skin issues. He is being treated for the skin problems and will have to go through heartworm treatment before he can be adopted.





BenjaminPH ID: #866
This 9-month old boy was surrendered by his owners at a local shelter who released him to us because he has luxating patellas. He’s heartworm negative, has a luxuriant coat, and a classic “cobby” build. He’s only 15 lbs now, but will probably grow some more. Bad knees don’t seem to slow down his puppy energy at all!





Benjamin FranklinPH ID: #5276
One of the Founding Fathers puppies taken in July 4, 2017





BennyPH ID: #5263
Benny is a young male that comes to PugHearts looking for a forever home. He is heartworm negative.

From Benny's foster: Benny comes to PH as an owner surrender from Dallas. He is a young male, around 18 months. He is great for an active family or kids. He's very much a puppy and has tons of energy! He loves his early morning walks and does well on his leash. He loves pretty much all toys. Sometimes he will find a shoe to chew on but we're working on that! He is all pug with his curly tail and floppy ears.






BennyPH ID: #580
Benny is a fawn male. He is only 1 year old. He was an owner surrender. He came to us with severe bladder stones. He has had surgery to clear the blockage. He is now on a special diet to prevent further stone formation and he will need to remain on that diet for the rest of his life. He is in otherwise good health. He is heartworm negative. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From Benny's foster: Benny is a cute loving puppy. He loves to play with his sisters and brothers. He loves toys and will play fetch with you. He knows commands such as Sit, Lay and Shake paws. He is just looking for a family that will love him.





BentleyPH ID: #4959
Bentley comes to us from a home where the elderly owner was no longer able to care for him.

From Bentley's Foster: Bentley is a 6 year old heartworm negative and neutered fawn male, surrendered to PugHearts due to divorce. He's officially the BIGGEST, sweetest guy I know. & that face. A level of squish usually reserved for Hollywood. A gorgeous head that soon won't be dwarfed by his body. Initially indifferent, by day 3 worked his way to the rest of the couch pack (after considerable effort getting up) He has dry eye, so daily drops for life, resolvable skin & weight issues, clearly, after which he'll undergo surgery for stenotic nares (narrow nostrils), but then set to be your sturdy, svelte companion. It's been just days, so his personality continues to reveal itself... He's ALWAYS quiet. Amazingly, he does not snore. He's instead the King of Calm & Cool. He's had no accidents. He gets along with everyone (adults & pugs; no children/cats in my home) & objects to nothing. Except going up stairs. We are a work in progress, but he sure is lovin this couch thing... Welcome to the pug life, B2.

Update 6-28-16: Bentley day 45 with PugHearts is down 7 pounds!!!! We are proud. Nearly his goal weight for dental/nare surgery, then good to go. The same chill, quiet, low impact guy we first met does appear to have slightly limited vision. He is the most polite foster I've ever had.





BerkleyPH ID: #4529
Berkley is a fawn male. He is 7 years old and an owner surrender. He is already neutered.

From Berkley's foster: Hi everyone, I am Berkley. I was an owner surrender though it was nothing I did. I am a fawn pug with great wrinkles, 7 years old, HW negative and completely healthy. My foster mom calls me Big Lug Pug because I am a big boy. She says I have a melon head when really, it is only the size of a large grapefruit and I weigh in at around 35 pounds. I am just a big guy.

I have a personality that is larger than me. I love people, dogs and cats. I am housebroken and love to be in viewing distance of my humans. I am not at all pushy with affection, I hold my licker well though I love a good rubdown and will push my face into your hands to get scritches. My perfect curly tail never stops…I wag even if asleep and hear my name said. I love to sleep in the big bed with my foster mom and I have a most endearing habit…I like to nurse on blankets or toys to put myself to sleep. My foster mom gave me a small fuzzy pillow which I love but one of my pug brothers keeps stealing it so I nurse on mom’s blanket instead.

Basically I am a big boy with a sweet marshmallow center. Does your home have room for me?





BernadettePH ID: #4386
Bernadette is one of the 9 “saints” rescued from a Mississipi puppy mill by Louisiana PugHearts volunteers. She has had several litters, but has now been spayed, vaccinated and microchipped, and has had a dental where several teeth were extracted. Her poor dental health is probably related to poor nutrition and overbreeding. She is somewhere between 3-5 years old, and physically she is in better condition than many of her fellow saints, but Berny was emotionally traumatized by her puppy mill experience. She gets along well with other dogs, but is terrified of humans. She shrinks, tail tucked, and runs from any human who gives her eye contact. She is afraid of the crate, and because catching her is so traumatic, her fosters allow her free reign of the house and yard. She will potty outside at times, but otherwise reliably uses potty pads in the spare bathroom. After nearly 3 weeks, she is finally starting to wag her tail when she is called, and will follow her foster mom. She has recently started jumping on the couch rather than always lying in the dog bed in the corner, and she is now sleeping in the bed with the pack and her foster parents by choice. She apparently sees the human bed as her “safe place” and has begun to play with her foster parents there. She hoards toys in the dog bed; maybe she is missing puppies? She will not take food from human hand; you have to put it down where the other dogs cannot get it (which requires some “pug wrangling” for the other members of the pack). It’s hard to close a door without spooking her, so she usually eats outside where she will readily follow her foster mom, who can then close the door and put the bowl in the grass. She requires at least 10 feet of space and no eye contact to eat. She will come at times when called, and will approach to wiggling fingers and allow scratches under her chin but will run, tail tucked, if you try to pet her normally any place other than in the human bed. She is very sensitive to eye contact and body language, and will refuse to come inside if she senses you are focusing on her. This little girl will need some extra time to learn to trust humans, but she is coming along, albeit slowly. One trip to the vet will undo weeks of human trust, so stay tuned as to her progress!





BernardPH ID: #950
Bernard is a super sweet little guy. He’s an older gentleman (9-11 yrs. old) so he’s very relaxed and a low energy dog. He just wants to be with you, he’ll follow you from room to room. He’s great around other dogs and kids of all ages. We call him a pocket Pug because of his small size. While he’s fine with men, he does seem to prefer the company of women. He’s house broken but needs to be let out several times a day. He does need help getting up on the couch and bed (due to his small size). Bernard is perfect for someone looking for a couch companion, someone to cuddle with and enjoy his remaining years.





BernardPH ID: #5207
Bernard is a 12 yr old male. He is heartworm negative.

Bernard comes to PugHearts from a local shelter.

From Bernard's foster: Foster Bernard is a stunning, black, senior, southern gent who came to PugHearts via local shelter in sad shape. 12 years spent largely in a cage, his spirit, resilience & enthusiasm inspire. On just day 2, post bath, meal & comfy night's sleep, he awoke in full tail wag. Bernard (remarkably) is HW-, but in dire need of groceries, which to my own pug's horror, he gets in unlimited supply. He has very decent vision, but is a bit hard of hearing. He has a hitch in his git along, as my dad would say, but is in no pain & keeps up with mates a fraction of his age. Just 5 days in, his Texas size charm continues to bloom. Watch him transform via Facebook & Instagram #PHadoptme. He is a follower, talker & a lover. He'll tell you he wants up & has not had one accident in the house. He walks well on a lead, especially considering he's maybe never been. He will do best in a mellow home, absent young kids & rowdy dogs. Don't let that odometer fool you. Seniors make THE BEST adoptees. This one is a true rescue model.





BerryPH ID: #4345
Berry is a 6 year old fawn female. She is an owner surrender due to health issues of the humans.

From Berry's foster: Berry is a berry good girl. She’s about 6 and is very healthy. She weighed 31 pounds when she arrived and I’ve got her down to 29 so she’s going in the right direction. However, she is a bigger pug so she should probably weigh around 25 or so. She is an owner surrender do to the owner’s health. She has dry eye (which is pretty normal for a pug) and needs drops in her eyes once a day.

Berry is very active and playful. She has one of those personalities that she’s just waiting for something to happen so she can get involved in it, anywhere from barking just to be one of the gang, to joining in the play with others. Nothing happens in the house that she’s not aware of and watching to see if it needs her attention. She is SO sweet! She loves to play but she also loves to have her loving and napping time. She’s also very well behaved, she is totally trained and knows how to behave. Berry really needs either a human or pug sibling that likes to play and be active. Berry isn’t one to lay around and let any grass grow under her ?

She will make someone a great new addition to their family. She has always been loved and is exceptionally well adjusted. She is a fantastic pug!!!





BessPH ID: #858
(In awards show season, this bio is written in Bess's voice as she accepts her well-deserved reward.)

Oh, WOW, thank you so much PugHearts and all my fans! It was an honor to be rescued, and I'm so grateful to have won. I wish I had time to tell you my whole story, but believe me, I worked hard for this beautiful silver face and these silver paws. I could go on and on into detail about the missing eye and the big patch of hairless scar tissue on my back and the tatoo. Suffice to say, I survived all of that and I'm focused on my good life now! I want to thank all the wonderful people who helped me get to where I am today. Okay, the music is playing, so I guess I have to get off the stage... But first, this is for Cindy, who recognized that I needed to get sprung from Alvin Animal Control; and for Carolyn, who made me know how comfortable life could be under the covers with people who care for me; and for Cleo and Julius who let me join their pack; and for the people who adopted me and kiss me every day and call me "gurlfrend" and make sure I get my dinner and heartworm meds... Thank you, thank you, thank you! I love you all!!!!





BessiePH ID: #4946
Bessie is an 12 year old spayed female. She is heartworm negative and scheduled have a dental done to make her feel better.

She comes to PugHearts with her sister Beulah as an owner surrender through no fault of their own.

From Bessie's foster: Foster Bessie is a 12 year old black female. Don't let her gray face fool you...she is in excellent health. She loves naps, being held and playing with her sister Beulah. She is house trained and crate trained. She loves children and does well with other dogs in the house. She isn't asking for much...just a loving home for her retirement years. She is bonded with her sister Foster Beulah and they must be adopted together. If you adopt these two, you will have double the love!





BethPH ID: #313
Beth is a gorgeous black female. She is approximately 3 years old. This poor little girl has been through a lot lately. She came to us after being hit by a car. She had fractured her pelvis in 3 places and required crate rest to heal. We are happy to report that she has made a full recovery and is now up and about with no residual effects. She is missing her right eye but that must've happened quite a long time ago. She is heartworm negative, spayed and otherwise healthy.





BetsyPH ID: #4561
Betsy is a female about 5 years old. She is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, and microchipped. Betsy is heartworm positive and will start treatment soon.

From Betsy's foster: Introducing "Miss Betsy Lane"! She is so beautiful with beautiful markings. Betsy has a huge personality with lots of curiosity. She is very playful and loves toys. When she is done with one toy, she searches for the next one to play with. Betsy also likes for me to chase her trying to get her toy. She has adapted very well in my home and gets along with my other pups. And Betsy is smart - she quickly learned how to use the doggy stairs and gets on my bed with no coaxing. She was pretty proud of herself and thinks she is very regal up there! Betsy was not potty trained when I first got her, but in less than a week, she had no accidents, learning from my pups. She also has a great appetite - She loves her kibble, peas and carrots, green beans, sardines, and fresh strawberries, pineapple, and blueberries. Betsy is quite the snuggler and sleeps next to me. And she doesn't snore!

Betsy loves to give kisses, and she follows me everywhere. She is amazing - always happy! She will do well as an only dog or with siblings. I think she would be great with children also. I can't say enough wonderful things about Betsy. She will bring so much joy, love, and laughter to any home. Thank you for your interest and please consider giving Betsy her forever home.





BettyPH ID: #4785
This is Foster Betty. Betty is 8 years old. She isn't grossly overweight but she's really scared and panting hard. She likes attention but I have to go to her. Poor girl is very confused.

Betty is heartworm negative and already spayed.

From Betty's foster: Betty is an owner surrender and is a total love. She is super friendly and loves her human(s). She constantly wants to be on my lap and will scratch at my leg until I pick her up. She is also a little on the heavy side but not anything like Bubbles or Big Boy. She probably only needs to lose 2 – 3 pounds to be in perfect condition. Betty is also HW-, house trained and crate trained. She is super well behaved.

Betty Boop will be a perfect girl for some lucky individual. Come on out to the events and meet her, it just may be the love connection you have been waiting for your whole life.





BeulahPH ID: #4945
Beulah is an 12 year old spayed female. She is heartworm negative and scheduled have a dental done to make her feel better.

She comes to PugHearts with her sister Bessie as an owner surrender through no fault of their own.

From Beulah's foster: Foster Beulah is a 12 year old fawn female. She is house trained, crate trained and in excellent health. She loves playing with her sister Bessie, having her face and ears cleaned by Bessie and having her belly rubbed. She loves kids and isn't bothered by other dogs. She and her sister Foster Bessie are a bonded pair and must be adopted together. Please consider giving these sweet ladies a loving home in their golden years. They are a treasure and you won't regret it!






BeverlyPH ID: #19
Beverly is a sweet fawn female. We estimate she is about 5 years old. She was found abandoned in a parking lot without any tags or microchip. She has been spayed, microchipped and is now current on her vaccinations. Unfortunately Miss Beverly also was suffering from a massive, painful bladder stone. She has had surgery to remove the stone and is in recovery. Right now she has issues with bladder control, but that is to be expected and she should regain control now that her bladder is free of stones. She will need a follow-up appointment for a teeth cleaning but otherwise will not need any further medical care except routine visits.

Beverly is a bit of a couch potato. She is very friendly and loving - definitely not an Alpha dog. She is getting used to being in a house and is learning about housetraining rules. This little girl is ready to find her new family who will keep her healthy and safe.





BexarPH ID: #796
Bexar (pronounced Bear) was the most pitiful looking pug that I had seen in quite some time, and I couldn’t even hold him….I don’t mess with Sarcoptic Mange. But it was love at first sight when our eyes met and I knew he was going to be a Heart Pug (he will steal a little part of my heart when he leaves). When he received his last shot I gathered him up and away we went to Katy.

Bexar has proven to be one of the sweetest, most loving fosters. He has some vision issues but his face is near the top of the cutest I have ever seen. He LOVES to be held and cuddled. His hair is really growing in quickly but when he first came home he felt like suede when I touched him. He just lays back in my arms with his head on my shoulder and cuddles, and he will sneak in a kiss here and there. I was really surprised to discover that he is housetrained. He hasn’t had one accident since he came in the door! Over the last week he has started to interact with the other fosters and I am trying convince him that barking and playing don’t have to be done together. He just gets so excited when he’s playing with Raisin that he loses control of his barker (and so does Raisin). He’s really smart and he seems to be catching on pretty fast.

As I said he has some vision issues and will require eye drops to keep his eyes moist. He isn’t blind but he has some pigmentation on his eyes so he doesn’t see crystal clear, he doesn’t have any issues getting around and never runs into anything. He also has heartworms and will require treatment when the medication is available again. I can’t begin to express what a wonderful pug Bexar is! However he doesn’t answer to Bexar, he comes to Mama’s Beautiful Baby Bexar. I do love this little guy and anyone that meets him will lose their heart just like I did. He’s awesome and will make someone’s life perfect!!!





BiancaPH ID: #708
Bianca is a fawn female. She comes to us from a local animal control facility. She is approximately 7 years old. She is in good health except for having severe dry eye. This has left her with diminished vision and she will require daily drops to keep her comfortable. She is heartworm negative. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on her vaccinations.

From Bianca's foster: In spite of her diminished vision and hearing, Bianca has thrived since joining our home. She gets around the yard and house amazingly well and has no problem using a doggy door. She loves to cuddle, give sugars and chew on nubby bones. She is fine around other dogs, but prefers to interact with humans. Don’t overlook this little love hound!





BibiPH ID: #4501
Bibi is a tiny 1 yr. old female brindle bug (boston terrier/pug). She is healthy, spayed, and up-to-date on her vaccinations. Bibi has the most amazing ears that fold over on the top and a little stub of a tail: she wiggles her whole butt when she’s happy or excited. She has bionic springs in those proportionally long legs and is very athletic and fast. She loves balls and pug eggs. She’s begun to make play overtures with some of my pack, and does great zoomies. She has not had an accident since arriving in my foster home. But the pug is very evident in her cuddling nature, especially in the bed and on the couch. She likes the spot behind your knees under the covers, and curls into such a little ball you hardly know she’s there. This little one is as sweet as she is adorable, and will go quickly, I predict!





Big BoyPH ID: #4784
Meet Big Boy (aka Bigs). Bigs is 42 pounds of chunky cuteness. He is about 9 year old and heartworm negative. He is already on a diet. He is more active than you would suspect. He is housebroken and already neutered.

Update from Big Boy's foster: When Big Boy came to PugHearts he weighed a whopping 42 lbs. He has managed to lose quite a bit of weight, and now sits at around 29 lbs, with a few more to go.

This guy is extremely well-mannered and totally housetrained. He is a total velcro dog, sticking by the side of his person. He is very happy to sleep in the bed with you, and also totally happy to sleep in the dog bed on the floor. He is calm and laid-back, though he is getting more energy as the pounds come off.

Big Boy does not manage stairs well, so he would do best in a one-story home. He is great with older kids and other dogs, and a low-key household would be right up his alley.

He does have dry-eye, so he needs to have eye drops in both eyes, twice a day. He has recently had a dental cleaning, and had a few teeth removed. He is heartworm negative and already neutered, and is ready for a furever home!





BiggioPH ID: #853
Biggio (aka Biggie) is a wonderful boy. He spends his day as close to me as possible. The moment I sit down, he is on the couch next to me or under my feet at the table. He sleeps in a bed next to me at night. I give him an occasional opportunity to nap in the bed with me & he’s in heaven. He isn’t too excited about being in a crate so we leave him out at night. He was hesitant at first but uses the doggie door with no problems now. He does pull on his leash when walking but that’s mainly because he is excited about smelling everything around him. He keeps up with everyone when we go for family walks.

He gets along great with our Shepherd/Lab mix and dominant female Pug. He is very much a guard dog. He lets everyone who walks by the front window know he’s there & this is his house. It’s quite a bit noisy when all 3 get going. He is very gentle with our 2 year old son. We are still working to teach J to be gentle with dogs and Biggie will let J hug and pull on him. He has never growled or snapped at J.

He is being treated for Heartworms and will be ready for his forever home at the end of March. I have been blessed having him with us & will miss him when he’s gone.





BijouPH ID: #3272
Bijou is a smaller black lady. She is an owner surrender. She is about 8 - 10 yrs old, has several tumors on her belly and rear. She is heartworm negative. We will get this sweet girl back into great shape and then help find her a forever home.

From Bijou's foster: Bijou is a very small female black pug. Although she is tiny don't let her size fool you! She is one little sassy girl. She is very vocal and is always making little noises. We think she may be deaf and we are working on hand signals with her. She isn't 100% potty trained so we keep a paper down for her and she does use it. She gets along fine with our dogs and cats although she will chase the cats on occasion. She sleeps in the bed with us and she is a hard sleeper. Her being hard of hearing might be the reason for that. We haven't had to crate her. She has the most cutest face ever! Once she looks at you with those milk chocolate eyes you will be smitten by this girl. She truly lives up to her name, she is a lovely little jewel! Do you have room in your heart for this little girl? She won't take up much room but she will fill your heart and home with love until it's overflowing!





BillyPH ID: #589
Billy is a fawn male. He is 3 years old. He comes to us from a local kill shelter. He's a little guy, only 15 lbs, very cute and lovey. He is heartworm positive and will begin treatment shortly.





BillyPH ID: #4994
Billy is a young man from the Rio Grande valley.

From Billy's foster: Bronco Billy Bob is a GOOD boy He is sweet, loves toys, kisses, people ,and our 4 pack. His neuter is scheduled and then we will see when we start heartworm treatment He weighs in at 10 lbs 15 ozs so he is tiny. About the only thing he does not like is crating He wants to be with everybody. He is very vocal, talks to you all the time

Potty training is in the works He will be a great addition to any family!!!!!





Billy BobPH ID: #751
Billy Bob is a fawn male. He comes to us from a local animal control facility. We believe he is about 3 years old. He is a very sick little boy right now, suffering from a severe case of pneumonia as well as being severely heartworm positive. We will post updates as his situation evolves.

Update from Billy Bob's foster: Billy Bob is a young fawn male who has been neutered and brought current on his vaccinations. He is heart worm positive and will be treated in a couple of months.

Billy Bob is a well behaved little man. He knows how to sit and use the doggy door. He gets along well with other dogs and children. He was very sick when he was rescued, but now is feeling better and starting to play with toys and other members of our pack. He likes to cuddle as well as play. At times he seems to be talking to me with his soft woo, woo, woo. He will make a good companion in a forever home with lots of love to give once he's over his heart worm treatment.






BingPH ID: #4871
Bing is quite the cutie pie. He’s part pug and part something else, I think it may be Peke. Whatever it is he’s beyond cute. He is around 4 and is healthy. He came in with his partner in crime, Carol.

There really isn’t a need to write a bio for Bing and Carol. Their picture speaks for them. They really are too cute for words. Bing and Carol are about 4 years old and are a bonded pair. And what a pair they are! I have fostered a lot of pugs and these two are probably the most entertaining I have ever had. They are constantly playing and running around (they are very active), they will stop and look at me and I can’t help but smile, they are just beyond. They are very well behaved, even though they are active. They keep each other entertained and will pull any of the other fosters into their play that they can talk into it. They are very social little guys. They also like to cuddle and if you have one to cuddle there will soon be two. They never are far from each other.

We think they are from the same litter. Even though they look so different you can see how they look alike in the mouth and face. When Carol is wet they really look like each other. Also, I need to let everyone know that Carol does not need to be groomed any more than a pug. Her hair does not mat, she doesn’t need to have her hair trimmed ( it just looks great) and her shedding is minimal (nonexistent compared to a pug). Her scruffy look comes naturally and if I brush her all she has to do is shake and there is the scruffy girl again. ?

These are two sweethearts that I wouldn’t mind having forever but they need a home of their own with their own family. I will miss them more than I can say but some family is going to be so happy they opened their home and hearts to two of the sweetest little creatures in the world.





BingPH ID: #4571
Fawn male found wandering in a neighborhood

From Bing's foster: Bing is such a good boy! He is a big, cuddly, sweet guy. He likes to play, explore the backyard, and nap. Really he will do anything as long as he can be near his person. He has excellent house manners. He plays well with other dogs and likes everyone. Bing is the perfect companion!





BingoPH ID: #510
Bingo is a black male. He was found wandering the streets with no tags or microchip. We believe he is about 2 years old. He is in excellent health. He is heartworm negative and has been neutered. He is current on his vaccinations and has been microchipped. As you can see, he is a handsome, happy guy! He is very sweet and loves to play with small and big dogs.





BitsyPH ID: #4912
Bitsy is an older female that came to PugHearts when her owner was not able to care for her any longer.

From Bitsy's foster: Bitsy is an 8-year old fawn owner surrender. She is a beautiful, sweet girl with a sift coat who gets along with other dogs. At this stage in her life, she's all about belly rubs, watching TV with her human and taking short walks. She came in to PugHearts a bit overweight, but she is now well under way to losing those extra pounds. Bitsy recently underwent bladder surgery to have stones removed, so she will need to be on special diet food for the rest of her life. Bitsy is crate and potty trained and loves meeting new people. She only barks when it's dinner time! She will make a wonderful companion for anyone who wants a lovable lap dog who wants nothing more than to hang out with you.





BixbyPH ID: #855
Bixby is a fawn male. He is 4 years old. He is in good health; he is heartworm negative. He is neutered, microchipped and current on his vaccinations.

From Bixby's foster: This is Bixby. He is a 4 year old little boy that that needs a forever home. He enjoys hanging out with daddy in the shop doing boy things and as seen in this picture he is waiting for his foster mommy to open the door to the car. He loves going for a ride. Bixby is the best companion. He chills with you when you're tired, plays with the kids and literally becomes your little shadow around the house. He is very intelligent and already house trained.





BlainePH ID: #1083
Blaine is a fawn male, about 7-8 years old and was recently sprung from a local animal control facility! Blaine is lucky that he is heartworm free. He is being brought current on his vaccinations and is being treated for flea allergies. He likes to carry around his bed and is learning to play with the other fosters. He has a little bit of food aggression but that is probably from living on the streets and is getting better. He has a very cute little face, sometimes smiling to show off his little teeth. He sleeps in a kennel right now at night until he learns my schedule. He stays out in the kitchen with the other boys when I’m gone during the day and doesn’t seem to get into trouble. I think he would be happy to be the only pug but he does get along with my others. He is a talker and tells you all about his day when you get home. Come and meet this little fellow and see if he picks you to go home with!





BlairPH ID: #4953
Blair is a 7-8 yr old HW negative female. She was spayed and is current on all vaccines.

You take the good you take the bad you take them both in there you have......Foster Blair. Her name reminds me of the character from the show The Facts of Life. Blair is the perfect pug. She loves to cuddle, snuggle, the velcro pug. She really doesn't mess with the other dogs, she just loves being with her human. She is the perfect pug, just puggly. You will immediately fall in love with her. She's already spayed, her stitches come out this weekend and then she'll be ready for her furever home





BlakePH ID: #443
Blake is a fawn male. He is 3 years old. He is a bog boy at 34 pounds so he needs to lose some weight. He is severe heartworm positive and will begin treatment shortly. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From Blake's Foster: Blake is such an handsome big boy. He may weigh 42 pounds but he acts like a big baby! Because of his weight he is on a strict diet of dog food and green beans. He is great with children and other animals and loves being held and giving kisses. He has to wear a belt around him to keep him from marking around the house, but he has almost completly dropped that habit. He loves being scratched behind the ears and is currently working on learning how to sit. Blake would fit in well with a family with other animals, or as an only dog. The only thing he wants is love, attention, and treats! Blake is such a sweet boy and has a great big heart!





BlanchePH ID: #4807
Blanche is such a sweet little girl. She is around 6 years old and in good health. She likes to play with the other fosters and also likes to cuddle next to me on the couch and nap. Blanche is housetrained and loves to sleep cuddled up next to me in bed at night. She isn’t a barker, she doesn’t jump on you, she gets along very well with all the other fosters and she’s just an all-round nearly perfect pug. She take thyroid meds and eyes drops. The meds aren’t very expensive at all (I know because I also take daily thyroid meds). She is quite happy to get her treat every day.

Blanche will be a great pug for just about anyone who will feed and love her. She likes children and has the energy to keep up with them but she is also just fine to be a couch potato all day if that is what her human wants to do. And as a bonus she has that great tongue and white socks to make her stand out. Come on out to the events and meet her.





BlanchePH ID: #4512
Blanche is a fawn female. She is about 8 years old. She is blind from cataracts and does not seem to hear.

From Blanche's foster: Introducing "Baby Blanche" - my little "Peanut"! Blanche is a very petite little girl - weighing only 9 pounds. We are working on putting a little weight on Blanche. She is a great eater and loves her kibble, green beans, and peas and carrots. Her favorite meal night is when I give her sardines in Greek yogurt. Blanche also likes fresh strawberries and pineapple, but blueberries - not so much.

Blanche is one of the sweetest fosters I have had. She is sitting on my lap as I type this. Blanche got along very well with my pups from the minute she came to my home. She is also potty trained and has not had an accident in the house. Blanche is such a great snuggler! She sleeps right next to me, doesn't move very much, and doesn't snore!!

Blanche is blind, but it doesn't dim her happy spirit or her sweetness. She won't chase after a ball, but she plays with toys. I carry her around at times because she is like a "pocket pug" and so cuddly. Blanche can hear, but please be close to her.

I can't tell you how very special this little girl is. I have had Blanche for a little over two weeks, and I see her cute personality evolving everyday. She is truly blossoming! Blanche needs a special home (no children please) with a human who would love to have a "baby" and will treat her like the little princess that she truly is. She deserves it. Blanche will bring a lot of love and joy to any home, and she has certainly stolen my heart! Thank you for considering this special little girl.





BlossomPH ID: #4799
Introducing Blossom :-) She is a month old puppy found by a good Samaritan and turned over to us. How can I put this. SHE IS FREAKING ADORABLE !!!!!!!!!!!! She loves to play, is feisty, seeks out your lap to cuddle and has the muskyist, best ever puppy breath. We really don't know what she is. I think part chihuahua because of her size (tiny). She appears to have pug ears, her tail is curling and she sheds like a pug. We decided to introduce her here for now. So if you know of anyone interested in a puppy, tell them about her :-)

UPDATE: Blossom has a pending adoption!





BlossomPH ID: #4937
Blossom is a sweet female that was found on a county road with a broken leg. She is heartworm negative and already spayed.

Our vets are helping with her leg and she should be feeling better soon.





BlossomPH ID: #293
Full Description Coming Soon!






BluPH ID: #21
Say hello to Blu. He is an 8 year old fawn male. This cutie came to us from a local shelter, so we do not know his history. However, we do know that nobody has been looking after him. He has bad hips and degenerative discs in his spine, though that does not slow him down. He has poor vision and a severe entropion eyelid (which can be corrected with surgery.) He has been neutered, microchipped and brought up to date on his vaccinations as well as having some dental work.

UPDATE from Blu's foster Mom:

Blu- A charmer, a jazz singer and a poet - what more can you ask for in a senior pug man ? He enjoys outdoors for very short periods and spends most of his time dreaming about .... what do pugs dream about? A chunk a pug ( ok he eats anything that looks edible) - he is currently watching exercise cable TV hoping that he gets in shape by osmosis. IF it works we will let you know................






BobbyPH ID: #294
There are not words to describe how truly wonderful Bobby is. He is a beautiful, happy, healthy six month old puppy full of life and with an abundance of love to give some very special human. It just so happens he was born without his sight, but as the saying goes "you don't miss what you've never had" and Bobby is a perfect example of this. He has no idea he should be able to see. After I had him for a few days I thought we should change his name to Radar, because he definitely has something very close! He very seldom even comes close to bumping into things, it's like he can feel it there. I have another blind dog that had to get use to the house before he was able to navigate without incident, but Bobby just started running around like he had lived at the house for months. He was so skinny when we got him (6 pounds) that he was frail, I was quite careful when picking him up so I didn't hurt him. Well, Bobby has a HUGE appetite and he no longer has bones sticking out everywhere! Since he has started gaining weight he doesn't sleep as much and is playing like a happy puppy. I have to let him wear himself out and then try to hold him for my cuddles (I need his cuddles). The first time I saw him actually playing with a toy made me cry with joy!

He has also started playing with the other dogs in true puppy fashion. I can't begin to tell you how easy it is to love this little guy. He doesn't have a handicap...he's just the most special foster I have ever had! All he needs is a chance from some special person to show you how great he is! Please be that someone special for Bobby!





BobbyPH ID: #3187
Bobby is a black male. He is 4 years old. He is healthy; he is heartworm negative.

From Bobby's foster: Bobby is a 3-4 yr old male. He is heartworm negative and healthy. He is such a pretty, or should I say handsome, young man. I've had him for several weeks and I like him more each day. He is extremely well behaved, doesn't mark or potty, and is the life of the party when others want to play. When they don't, he's quite content to cuddle on my lap and be sweet. He's a pretty big boy but somehow when I'm holding him he seems to shrink and fits very well on my lap. He's pretty special:)





BobbyPH ID: #4828
Bobby NAP (Not A Pug) had me from the first minute I saw his picture at the shelter. I went to pick him up at the shelter and the poor guy was a mess, he had tar in his fur that we had to shave out and he was wet and smelled so extremely bad. But he was the happiest little guy to get sprung. He is about 3 years old and is totally PERFECT in every way. He is HW+ and should begin his final treatment in the near future. He does have longer hair so he requires more frequent bathing and periodic brushing to control the matting but he doesn’t seem to shed so that is a huge plus.

Bobby is one of those guys that just melts into the arms of whoever is holding him. He puts off such an aura of calmness and gentleness that he calms the person holding him. He does like to play with the younger fosters but his favorite activity is to be cuddled. He would be a dream come true for a child that would like to have a companion that will be a BFF for life. I can’t begin to find the words to describe how amazing Bobby is. He is truly the perfect package all rolled up into one guy, he’s handsome, loving and well behaved. Someone is going to be one of the luckiest people alive when they adopt this sweet little man.





BocephusPH ID: #5008
Bocephus is a 5 yr old male owner surrender. He comes to PugHearts already neutered and heartworm negative.

Meet Bocephus, he comes to us with his brother Meeko when medical issues in the family forced them to find a safe place for the two pugs.

Bocephus is an 8 yr old cuddle bug. He is a big teddy bear. He is a bonded pair with Meeko.

Meeko and -Bocephus are a wonderful team. Both are incredibly sweet and would make great companions.






BogartPH ID: #4423
Bogart is a fawn male.

From Bogart's foster: Bogart is doing very good. He is very different from my sleepy bears I have had. He is up and at 'em and ALWAYS hungry . He always wants to be where we are. He has a hard time seeing, but when he finds where I am, he has to be right there and then he will settle down and lay by me. He is really cute. Took him to the bay this weekend. LOVES the golfcart. Lays right down on the seat and chills while we ride around. Him and Benny didn’t really care about the other at all at first, but now when I check on them most of the time they are beside each other. He loves being outside with us. He doesn't go far. Just follows us whatever we are doing. I cant get him interested in play yet. He is very happy and we are enjoying him.





BogartPH ID: #374
Bogart is a gorgeous fawn male. He comes to us from a local shelter so we don't know his history. We estimate he is about 2 years old. He is being neutered and brought current on his vaccinations. Bogart's foster reports that he "is a great dog and really really coming into the puggie he always should have been from the day he was born."





BogiePH ID: #335
Bogie is a fawn male. He is an owner surrender through no fault of his own. He is 4 years old. Bogie is a well behaved little gentleman. He is housebroken and knows basic commands. He gets on well with his foster fur-siblings but doesn't appear to be used to being around other animals. Group play is something he is learning. He does love to play with toys though.





BogiePH ID: #4580
Bogie is a fawn male. He is an owner surrender with his sister Josie.

From Bogie's foster: On his way to a more svelte figure, Bogie is full of personality. Half of a bonded pair with his sister Josie, Bogie loves to go on walks, play with toys, and be with his sister. He is potty and crate trained, but definitely does better sharing a crate with his sweet sister. He is currently on a mission to drop some pounds so he can have some mast cells removed and he will be ready for adoption!





BombayPH ID: #2114
Bombay is a fawn female. She has been microchipped and is current on her vaccinations.

From Bombay's foster: When I first saw Bombay at the Clinic I thought she was an old, sick girl. I picked her up and she was skin and bones and shaking. I wanted to foster her to give her a chance to be happy and safe. Well, let me tell you was I mistaken! First of all she’s not old and she’s not sick, she’s just skinny. When I brought her home it was like someone flipped a switch and she was this little pug that struts around like royalty. She has excellent posture and her head is always up and her ears are always perked. She is alert to everything going on around her and she doesn’t miss one little thing. I adore her! She loves to sit on the arm of the couch next to me and supervise the activity of everyone else.

She is a very well behaved young lady. She does bark if she sees something (squirrel) in the back yard. She is housetrained and is quite happy to go in her crate when I leave. She isn’t a typical pug in the eating department, I guess that’s why she’s so skinny. I keep food accessible to her all day and she never eats it all. Hopefully her appetite will pick up. She can’t be spayed until she gains some weight. She also has dry eye, but that is just daily drops in her eyes.

Bombay is a very social girl and enjoys going to the events and seeing everyone. She will be a wonderful companion for someone. She is quite sweet and loves to be around her human.





BondPH ID: #301
Bond, James Bond. Fawn male. License to run around like a puppy and steal your heart.





BongoPH ID: #666
Bongo is a fawn male. He was found wandering the streets with no tags or microchip. We believe he is about 1-2 years old. He is moderately heartworm positive and will begin treatment shortly. He has been neutered, microchipped and brought current on his vaccinations.

From Bongo's foster: Bongo came to PugHearts from a nice lady who rescued him and BeBe because they were following her through a local park. Bongo is a great boy who is around a year old. He is heartworm positive and will go through the treatment to get rid of the nasty heartworms. He is full of personality and wrinkles. He is housebroken (altho he had a few marking accidents when he first came to his fosters house..I think because they had another boy Pug, and he felt he needed to show his presence). The marking ended after day 1. Bongo's favorite activities are loving his humans, playing and being a handsome boy. Bongo uses a doggy door and wold love to keep you warm on these cold fall nights. Please consider adding Bongo to your family. He has lots of love to give.





BonitaPH ID: #3312
Bonita is a 4 month old chug who joined the PugHearts family via a vet in West Texas. Her family had brought her in to euthanize her because of trauma to her eyes. Fortunately, the vet was able to talk the family in to surrendering her. After carefully assessing her eyes, the team at Sugarland Pet Hospital determined it was best to remove both eyes. The good news is that because of Bonita's age and lack of vision for several months, her blindness is normal to her. She is such a puppy and has NO fear. Bonita tries very hard to play with all the pups in our house and terrorizes any toy left on the floor. She has a loving, adventurous spirit and gives the best kisses.

Bonita has had very few accidents in our house and knows that outside is for taking care of business. We are working on crate training her during the day while we are at work. She currently sleeps with her foster mom and never wakes her up to go potty during the night. Bonita needs a family that will treat her like a normal dog, including taking her for walks and to pet training. This puppy won't last long, so contact us soon if you are interested.





BonniePH ID: #22
Bonnie is a 6 year old fawn female. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on all of her vaccinations. She is an owner surrender due to family changes.

Bonnie has lost all sight in her left eye due to an injury some years ago. She also has an ulceration to her right eye and has suffered some vision loss in that eye. She still has some vision and is able to get around very well.

At first glance she looks as though she would be a couch potato - but don't believe it! She thoroughly enjoys walks and running around the park. She's a very active, vibrant girl who demands your attention. She is no wallflower!

Bonnie is not yet housebroken but she is learning and does know how to use a doggie door. She gets along very well with children and other dogs.





BonniePH ID: #4974
Bonnie is a young female from a shelter. She has some skin issues and will be seen by our vet.

From Bonnie's foster: Bonnie is a 2 yr old HW- fawn female who came to us from a South Texas shelter. She was surrendered due to "itchiness"... She had fleas. That's it. Fleas. Which we quickly got rid of. She has a wild streak to be sure, & needs a hand with leash/potty training. She's a noisy breather & also makes the funniest dolphin ?? sounds. She gets along with pugs, but no kids/cats live with us. She loves to lie across the back of the couch. Her mask is a bit faded, as if the color rubbed off from attacking her claimed favorite toy; a giant stuffed FLEA. How very fitting she chose to bite the one that bit her... Bonnie: Comic genius. Crazy Kisser. Couch Creeper.





Bonnie 2PH ID: #314
Bonnie is a 5 year old fawn female. She appears to have been used for breeding in her past life but those days are far behind her now! She has now been spayed. Unfortunately she is heartworm positive and is now starting treatment. She is in otherwise good health. She is now current on her vaccinations and microchipped.

From Bonnie's Foster: Bonnie is one fun little dog. She loves human touch because she didn't have very much of that when she was used as a breeder. She is addicted to the internet, and gets very animated whether she is looking at images or watching a video on Youtube. Her special time each day is sitting in my lap at the computer. she also hides her chew toys all over the house, and seems to remember where they all are.

Bonnie is beautifully potty-trained. She does have access to a doggy door, and uses it freely. She is crated at night only because she needs to be reminded of her place in the pack. Bonnie has an Alpha female side to her, and when she first arrived at our home she tried to work her way up the pecking order within our pack of 3 dogs by starting some fights. She is doing well now but it is important to establish the pecking order and keep the structure and routines in tact for her. She responds to well-timed verbal correctons. Bonnie would probably do very well as an only dog or one of 2 dogs where she would be in the number one position, and be paired with a male dog. She loves to go on walks, and is starting to play with stuffed toys. But by far her favorite items are chew toys. AND the INTERNET. She is a hoot






BooPH ID: #23
Boo is a recent transfer from Homeward Bound Pugs in OK.

Boo was abandoned in a home for two weeks with his brother Vincent. They had little or no food or water. A nice lady found out about them and called the police.

Boo had to spend five days in the shelter before he could be turned over to rescue.

Boo looks pretty rough right now and had erlichia from ticks. With some good food and lots of love, he should be looking very handsome in a few weeks. He has lots of hair loss from a flea infestation and is very underweight right now. Despite his ordeal, he is such a happy boy. His tail never stops wagging and he just loves attention. We think Boo if between four and six years old.

Boo is hoping his forever home will soon find him and give him the life he deserves. He is a good boy and gets along great with all the other puggies in his foster home.





BoogiePH ID: #3307
Introducing Boogie! A fawn female that is 9 years old. She was surrendered to us due to the fact that her owner was an elderly man and could no longer care for her. Boogie is in great health and very active for her age, she still has a lot of life left in her!

From Boogie's foster: She is said to get a long great with children although I have not yet had her around any. She does get along great with my female pug, Roxy. She does not seem to like stairs very much but we are working on that with her. I think she may have been so spoiled she likes to be carried up and down them! I cannot think of many homes that would not be a good fit for Boogie. She is a sweet girl and up to date I have nothing negative to say about her.





BoogiePH ID: #4475
Boogie is a 4 year old neutered male.

From Boogie's foster: Boogie is around 4 years old and a very handsome devil. He really isn’t a devil but he does have that spark in his eye that means he can be very mischievous when he puts his mind to it. He is very into his environment and nothing gets past him. He’s quite intelligent and aware of everything that goes on around him.

He’s in excellent health and doesn’t have any eye issues. He’s also a fairly small pug. He did have pretty bad skin when he arrived because he was kept outside in the heat but that is a thing of the past and his fur is growing in nicely. He’s a really black pug. I love how his eyes are so big that he looks surprised. He’s quite a great boy. He did have marking issues when he came in so I had him in a belly band, but in the last week or so the band has stayed dry.

Boogie is a wonderful boy, he’s playful and also a lover. He would be a great pug for a family with children who are active. He has boundless energy and would be able to keep up with them. He’ll be at all the events so if you think he may be what your family is looking for come on out and meet him.





BorisPH ID: #611
Boris is a fawn male. He was found wandering the streets with no tags or microchip. He is in fair health; he is severe heartworm positive and will begin treatment shortly. He has been neutered, microchipped and brought current on his vaccinations.

From Boris' foster: Boris is one cool dude. He is a lay back & chill, sleep-in in the morning kind of guy. Sometimes he likes to just hang out on a chair by himself, others he wants to lay right next to you, cuddling. He is an excellent companion; he likes to hang out where you are. For someone looking for a dog ready to just make himself at home and chill, Boris is the dog for you.





BosleyPH ID: #4859
Bosley is a 5 yr old male from the Rio Grande Valley.

He is heartworm positive, has dry eye that has not been treated effectively. He needs a dental and some good food and care.

Update: Hi everybody! My name is Bosley, and I'm the latest boy to join the Franks' foster crew! I had to have my eye removed the other day, which kinda stinks but I'm good, I'm getting the hang of this one eye thing. I'm a 5year old, small, quiet boy. I'm still getting settled into the crowd, but I really like my people. I haven't had any accidents in the house. I hang in the crate when my peeps are at work, but I get to sleep in the big bed at night, so that's cool. They say I have a mild case of these heartworm things, so I'll be hanging with the Franks for a couple of months until those go away. (It's all good, this way Santa knows where I'll be.) Come early next year though, I'm gonna be ready to find my forever home!





BossPH ID: #5150
Boss is a 2 yr old black male that comes to PugHearts from a local shelter. He is heartworm negative.

Boss has mange and we are treating that prior to his adoption. This boy is looking for a family to love and adore him forever.

From Boss's foster: Boss came to us from BARC, and boy is he grateful to be in a home and loved. He's such a sweet cuddly boy with us and his foster sisters. He's a character too! He prances around in a way that you have to just see to appreciate! He loves to play tugs and he likes to suckle on his toys like a baby with a pacifier. When there is food involved he does the cutest happy dance and makes this soft little noise that we just adore! He is crate trained and sleeps with us at night with no issues and when he needs to go potty he stands by the back door. He's just a love and he would be the perfect addition to any home with his easy going temperament. He would love to meet you and give you kisses too, so reach out to your adoption coordinator before he gets snatched up!






BossPH ID: #1084
Boss is an adorable young male pug. It is obvious he lived most of his young life outside because he has absolutely no house training. He is learning to go outside and he currently sleeps in the kitchen with two other foster boys. He is heartworm negative, neutered and getting current on his shots. Boss has never been on a leash and that will be the next lesson for him. He is a sweet melt in your lap pug baby, a little Bossy around the other boys, thus his name, but will make someone a wonderful companion.

Update 05/06/13 from Boss' foster: Boss is still adorable and is a favorite at the PugHearts events. He has been at my house since Valentine’s Day this year, almost 3 months. He is now about 90 percent house-trained! He sleeps on my bed, and hasn’t marked it for several weeks. The only accident he has is piddling in Mr. Furley’s bed every once in a while. (I think he does it for fun.) He walks pretty well on a leash now. He loves to snuggle in your lap, placing his little paws and head right on your heart. He is fairly independent and plays with the other guys at the house. He is not a destructive puppy; doesn’t chew furniture or scratch walls. He was evaluated for possible injury and may have a some neurological deficit, but the only effect it seems to have is that he is more laid back than most young pugs. Other than that he is perfectly healthy and awesome!





BoudinPH ID: #932
Meet Boudin, or as I call him, Boo Boo! Boudin is a 10 year old neutered male from Cajun country. He is HW negative, has a beautiful, soft smutty coat, and is a gentle soul. He has a slight and charming underbite that I love. He has chronic dry eyes and will require eye drops 3x daily for the rest of his life. He is blind, but within one week, he could navigate our first floor, jump on and off the sofa, and could go up and down the stairs to go outside. He fit in immediately with our four Pugs from day one. Boo loves to snuggle next to you, and he is learning how to play with toys. He also knows how to sit and shake, and sometimes howls when doing so! He has only marked once since he joined our pack about 2 weeks ago. At night he sleeps in our kitchen, and is happy there. I cannot say enough good things about this charming gentleman. He will be a loving companion as a single dog, or with doggie siblings. Boudin needs his forever home where he can be worshipped and adored, and give Puggy snuggles and kisses.





BowiePH ID: #410
Bowie is a black male. He is 3 years old. He is an owner surrender through no fault of his own. He is in good health except for being a bit overweight. He is heartworm negative. He is neutered, microchipped and current on his vaccinations.

From Bowie (with a little help from his foster): Hi! I'm Bowie! I've been told that I need to tell you a little bit about myself. So, let me start off with the fact that "little" is not a term that is normally used to describe me! I'm a big guy, with a big personality! I currently weigh about 32 lbs, but that's down a bit from when I first came to PugHearts. My foster mom tells me that we still have a few more pounds to go - but that I shouldn't feel badly because I'm just a big pug in general. She tells me how handsome I am and that she couldn't love me any more any other way. I'm on a diet, and so far, it hasn't been too bad. She also tells me that I remind her of a bear cub sometimes - maybe that's because I'm so cuddly. I love to cuddle with her or my foster dad on the couch when they watch tv or read. Hmm..what else can I tell you? Oh, I'm about 3 or 4 years old, I'm healthy and I go potty outside! (She says that's a real plus!). I like the other dogs in my foster home too. I'm a pretty friendly and social kinda guy. I like to play sometimes, but mostly I like to relax or chew on a good bone. I certainly don't mean to brag - but my foster mom says I'm quite a catch!





BowiePH ID: #4755
Bowie is a 2 year old male. He is heartworm negative and already neutered.





BoydPH ID: #637
Gus (originally Boyd, but he reminds me for some reason of the character Gus from the tv show Psych) is a 5 year old fawn pug male who fully embraces his pugness through his silly noises, his snuggling with me and his new brother, Sam (who you can see behind Gus), and his ability to charm practically anyone. He was an owner surrender due to financial reasons, and, while I feel sorry that his original people couldn't keep him, I could not be more happy to be his new momma. In terms of sound effects, he is more like a French bulldog in frequency and volume than a typical pug, and, to prove his individuality, he is more likely to make snoring noises while awake than asleep. He is my sweet, silly, young pug man.





BozPH ID: #642
Boz is a fawn male. He is 4 years old and an owner surrender. He is in god health except for being a bit overweight. He is now on a diet to help him get to a healthy weight. He is heartworm negative. He has been neutered, microchipped and brought current on his vaccinations.





BozPH ID: #867
Full Description Coming Soon!






BradPH ID: #1013
Brad is a fawn male. He is 3 years old. He is in good health; he is heartworm negative. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From Brad's foster: Brad is a 3 yr old fawn male. Brad is not your typical pug. He is somewhat bigger than most other pugs with larger, floppier ears. He is also almost a red color. We think there may have been a puggle in the family tree somewhere. His attitude is all pug however. His energy level is about medium, he likes to play and loves chewy toys. He also LOVES to run and runs faster than any pug I have ever seen. He needs long walks and lots of exercise. He is not too crazy though, sometimes he just prefers sleeping all day in his bed next to his foster brother getting belly rubs. He also gets along well with my older cat. He is going to make someone a wonderful companion.





BradleyPH ID: #5099
Meet Bradley. He is an 8 yr old severe heartworm positive male.

He has been neutered.

This boy is the perfect example of joy and excitement each day.





BradyPH ID: #316
Brady is an adorable fawn male. He is about 3 years old. He came to us when he was taken to a local animal shelter after being hit by a car. This poor little guy was suffering from a broken leg and has since undergone surgery to repair it. Unfortunately his bad luck didn't end there as he has tested positive for heartworms. He has been started on conservative therapy but he will soon begin more aggressive treatment. Meanwhile he has been neutered, microchipped and brought up to date on all of his vaccinations.





BrandoPH ID: #4858
Brando was dumped with 2 other pugs. He made it to PugHearts and we will help him find a forever family.

From Brando's foster: Brando is quite the little Casanova. He is about 5 years old and currently HW+. Brando was a puppy mill dog and dumped along with two other precious babies. He is still a bit skittish when it comes to human touch, but will let you pet him when he is relaxed. Brando gets along extremely well with our dogs and likes to cuddle with them. His favorite treat is cheese, and he seems to be pretty fond of whipped cream as well! He truly has come a long way in a short amount of time, and we continue to see small improvements everyday!





BrandonPH ID: #4960
Brandon came to us from a home where the elderly owner was no longer able to care for him.

From Brandon's foster: Brandon loves to snuggle, is patient and laid back, he gets along well with kids and other dogs. He is looking for a home that will pet him, give him kisses, let him sit close by, and will love him forever. He is crate and house trained which makes life so much easier! He is about 6-7 years old which is the perfect age because he has good energy, but is more mature than a younger dog. He’s healthy except for dry eye which he receives daily drops for. He allows you to do this easily. I cannot think of anything negative to say about him. He’s gorgeous, has a beautiful light colored coat and has tons of manners. He’s not interested in toys much, but loves food like most pugs. He’s good in the car and he sleeps well at the foot of the bed with us. He’d make a great only dog or do well in a pack.





BrandonPH ID: #536
Brandon is a fawn male. He is 2-3 years old. He was picked up by a local animal control facility and nobody came to claim him so we were called. He is severe heartworm positive. He has been neutered and brought current on his vaccinations. This charmer has manners, so he's obviously been someone's pet at one time, though his heartworm positive status tells us nobody has been taking care of him. He does have some dry eye and is on medication for that.

From Brandon's foster: Brandon is very happy to be rescued and be back in a home with people who love him. He's the first one to jump in your lap when you sit down and wants to climb up until he's nose to nose with you. He's a beautiful golden brown and reminds me of a lion club. He's definitely a chow hound and roams from bowl to bowl at meal times. He's perfectly house trained and knows the command Sit. Once he's cured of his heartworms, he will be the perfect pet for someone who wants to snuggle with a pug and get puggle kisses.

Update: We are thrilled to report that Brandon has completed his heartworm treatment and is now clear! This means he is ready for his new home!





BrandonPH ID: #3208
Brandon is an 8 yr old fawn male. He is already neutered and heartworm negative.

From Brandon's foster: Brandon has not traveled down an easy road. He first came into PugHearts in 2013 after being seen advertised on Craigslist for free. He was in foster care for awhile and then hit it lucky when a wonderful loving woman adopted him. Sadly, his adoptive Mom passed away within a year. Again, he has found himself back in foster care.

Brandon is a laid back kind of guy. He gets along with the other dogs in his foster home. He is friendly to humans but is not a lap dog. He must be encouraged to go outside to potty several times a day as sometimes he does have accidents in the house if not watched closely.

Update on Brandon Feb 2015: Brandon has come a long way since coming back into rescue 6 months ago after his adoptive Mom passed away. His true personality has really begun to show through. He used to be nervous and anxious around people but is now behaving in a positive way towards people interacting with him. He especially loves children and likes getting attention from them. He does well in a crate, but he also loves to be out and just be in the same room with his human. He seldom marks anymore and will get your attention when he needs to go outside. He is calm and not really interested in toys. He gets along well with other dogs. Brandon is looking for and deserves a forever home.





BrandyPH ID: #5040
Brandy is a 5 year old female. She was found in front of a convenience store all alone. She has some untreated dry eye and bad skin issues. Brandy is heartworm negative and will be spayed as soon as her skin clears up.

From Brandy's foster: Brandi is one of the sweetest fosters I have had the pleasure of taking care of. She is a tiny little girl, only about 12lbs., about 4yrs old, spayed, and HW-!! She is playful and gets along great with all of our other dogs(large and small). We are working on boundaries and potty training - She is very smart and is making progress with both. She loves to eat!! And cuddle!! Brandi will make a great companion as an only dog or in a house full of children - She is amazing!!





BreePH ID: #4511
Black female found wandering alone. She is heartworm positive and will begin treatment shortly.

From Bree's foster: This is Bree. She is about the same size as Megan and is stinking cute!!! She is extremely skinny so she will weigh more than Megan eventually but her body is the same size. I love her ears and she has the head cock down to a science. She is extremely timid and is scared also. She is on my lap at all times and if I get up to just pick something up she follows me. She is high HW positive so she will be with me for quite awhile. She is a total bed hog because she has to be close to me so between her, Megan and Amber I get pushed off the bed. I'm going to get way too attached to her, I just know it. How could I resist?





BricePH ID: #982
Brice is a fawn male. He is about 2 years old. He is an owner surrender through no fault of his own. He is in good health except for some skin issues and dry eye. He is heartworm negative. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From Brice's foster: Brice is a really sweet boy. He loves to play & can be a little mischievous. He loves food and will get it wherever he can. That includes the pantry & jumping on the tables. He is a more active Puggie than most. Yet, still likes to cuddle when he's worn out. He gets along well with my other dogs and loves my toddler (almost too much sometimes). He sleeps in his crate with no problems. He has learned how to use the doggie door and hasn't had any accidents indoors for a while. He gets eye drops daily but doesn't always like them. He will sit for them when he knows a treat follows. He loves toys and has a special stuffed duck that pretty much goes everywhere he does. He will do well in a house with some activity and other dogs.





BrickPH ID: #2113
Brick is a 6-7 year old male. He was left tied to a tree in a strangers yard. He is heartworm negative and already neutered. This gorgeous boy has wrinkles on top of wrinkles. Brick is dealing with some separation anxiety and would prefer a home where he gets LOTS of attention. He ADORES kids and will tolerate being dressed up and (recently) wearing bunny ears. If you are looking for a big squishy boy to cuddle....Brick is your guy.





BridgetPH ID: #25
Bridget is a gorgeous fawn female who was found wandering around by a Good Samaritan who took her in and tried to find her family. Unfortunately nobody had microchipped her and nobody came forward to claim her, so she was turned over to us to find her a new home. We estimate she is about 3-4 years old. She is now microchipped and has been brought current on her vaccinations. She appears to be a healthy girl.

She’s a very sweet girl who is definitely a lap dog. She very much loves humans and likes to be near someone who can cuddle her. She enjoys sleeping in a human bed and is not much of a morning pug.

She appears used to living with a cat and also gets on well with other dogs. She also gets on very well with children and is described by her foster as “very tolerant of lots of kid hugs.” She is quite playful, enjoying a game of fetch or tug-o-war.

PLEASE NOTE: Bridget and Clifford are a bonded pair and as such will only be adopted out together.






BrittanyPH ID: #393
Brittany is a fawn female. She comes to us from a local shelter so we don't know her history. We estimate she is between 3 to 4 years old. She has one "bad" eye and one "good" eye. She is a sweet little lady.

From Brittany's foster: Britney is a sweet active girl. She would do best in a household with another dog who loves to play, as she has fallen head over paws in love with another Pughearts foster, Mr. Dill Pickle! They play constantly, and she practically moons over him. She knows the basic command "sit", and has shown that she is a fairly quick learner. She has a few unique traits and talents, she can jump up waist high from a stand still (very unusual for a pug), and she has the cutest little underbite with a tongue that sticks out a bit on a regular basis. She was stuck to me like glue initially, but now that she feels more secure in the home and the family routine, she is settling down. Bed sleeper she is as well, has to be snuggled right up to your side, now who wouldn't want a dog like her?





BrockPH ID: #4954
Brock is a 3-4 yr old male. He is heartworm positive and neutered.

From Brock's foster: Brock is quite simply the most amazing little guy. He is a Frenchie Pug- half Pug, half French Bulldog. He is the perfect age, around 3-4 years old and has just undergone his heartworm treatment. He is expected to make a full recovery and is currently resting up!

Brock is such a friendly pug, he gets on great with other dogs and all humans. He just loves attention and will happily wag his tail at everyone he meets! Brock really is a velcro pug. He likes to spend the majority of the day cuddling on the couch and will actually give your arm a little tap if you stop petting him! You cannot resist falling in love with him!






BrodiPH ID: #4665
Brodi comes to us from a local shelter.

From Brodi's foster: Brodi is a 4 year old pug mix who was rescued from an out-of-town shelter on his last day prior to euthanasia. A team of volunteers transported him to Houston, where he was treated for worms, flea dermatitis, neutered and brought up to date on vaccinations. We believe he must have been a street dog for some time and is heartworm positive. While his physical healing is underway, patient foster parents are working on healing his emotional scars. Brodi was very depressed and fearful of humans and dogs. With consistent leadership, twice daily walks with another foster pug, and verbal corrections and/or time-outs with every growl, Brodi has become one of the pack after a month. He is meeting people and dogs on his walks with appropriate interactions, and has begun to play. He sleeps with two humans and up to 7 other dogs, and is happy to greet new people who visit his foster family. He has no food aggression, and is actually quite submissive, but he is fed separately from the other dogs (either in his crate or behind a closed door), otherwise he is too nervous to eat. The same is true with his house manners: he will use the doggy door if humans are outside, but will not do his business in the backyard if other dogs are present. He does go on his walks, and doesn’t mark in the house. He is crate trained, but has earned the privilege of “his” spot on the back of the couch as long as he is calm and relaxed. Brodi is very sensitive when new dogs are brought into his foster home. He accepted a puppy with no problems, was very reactive/fearful of a young male with behavior problems of his own, and was distrustful of a well-balanced male for the first 24 hours, but relaxed and accepted him after that point. We will continue to work on his socialization, and expect that he will have healed his emotional scars by the time his heartworms are fully treated in late summer. His beautiful red-gold coat is starting to shine, and he loves to roll around on his back making silly growls and “talking” after walks. This sweet boy needs time to build up his self-esteem, but he is rewarding his foster parents with daily progress.

Update: Heartworm treatment has now been completed!





BrodiPH ID: #26
Brodi is a fawn male puppy. Yes, he is actually only 9 months old though he looks much older! This not-so-little guy appears to be a Pug-Bulldog mix. At 9 months of age he still has his baby teeth but already weighs 30 pounds. It doesn't look like he will be much taller, but he will probably get a bit bigger around.

Brodi was found wandering the streets and taken in by a Good Samaritan who tried to find his family. Unfortunately, it does not appear that anyone has been caring for this guy as he is positive for hookworms, Demodex mange and a yeast infection on his skin. He is currently undergoing treatment and will recovery fully. He has been brought up to date on his vaccinations, microchipped and neutered.

Brodi is every bit a puppy - very playful and sweet. He gets along very well with other dogs and even cats. He is also very good with young children. He is housebroken but still has a lot to learn. Now he needs someone to teach him cool stuff like how to play ball and sit for treats!






BrodyPH ID: #4394
Brody is a 6 year old fawn male. He is neutered and current on his vaccinations. Brody was an owner surrender through no fault of his own.

Hi, I'm Brody and I'm 6 years old. My family didn't want me anymore so I came to PugHearts where I am living with my foster mom until I find my forever family. I'm a smart boy, house broken and know how to use the doggy door. I like to chase bouncing balls in the house and I have lots of energy for playing and going on walks. I know how to sit and sometimes I can stay. I also like other dogs and little people too.

At night, I go right into my crate to sleep, but I sure would like to sleep in the big bed, if you'd let me. I like to cuddle and be petted or get a belly rub. I can also give good kisses. It sure would be nice to have my very own family to love me. Do you have room in your heart and home for a good boy like me?





BroganPH ID: #949
Brogan is a fawn male. He was heartworm positive and has received treatment. He was neutered and had had a dental done. He comes to us from a rural animal shelter and is looking forward to the good life.

From Brogan's foster: Brogan sits inside the front window and serves as sentry. He alerts us to every car or person that passes by, every cat, dog or squirrel that has the audacity to cross our lawn. He is a little afraid of rain and thunder, wanting to be in your lap during a storm.

You cannot describe Brogan without mentioning his singing skills. Songs are performed when he can scoot back & forth under the coffee table using the underside to scratch his sweet spot! His soulful eyes make him the best companion for those moments of consternation or lament. He loves nothing more than being there for you. Right next to you, with his head and front paws resting on your arm, leg, shoulder….





BroncoPH ID: #922
Bronco is a fawn male. He comes to us afrom a local shelter. We believe he is about 2 or 3 years old. He is mild heartworm positive and will begin treatment shortly. He has been neutered, microchipped and brought current on his vaccinations.

Update from Bronco's foster: Bronco is about the sweetest little guy I’ve met! He has the saddest eyes in which he uses freely to get extra love and attention! He is such a good boy –he’s housebroken & well mannered. He’s the perfect combination of playful and snuggly. He gets along great with our other foster dogs. Although he doesn’t live with children, when I’ve seen him around them, he’s kind and gentle. He would make a wonderful addition to any family! You have to meet this guy!





BronsonPH ID: #931
Bronson is quite a handsome little gentleman. He is a beautiful black boy and looks to be about 3ish. He’s not a very big boy and is about 12 -14 pounds. He was part of a hoarding situation and is a little timid and shy at the moment. However, I have no doubt that within a week he will be your typical crazy, over the top pug. I’ve only had him a few days and I know that all he needs is some time to adjust to his new circumstances. Pugs are pretty smart little creatures and they seem to adjust amazingly fast to the good life.

Bronson is a very well behaved little guy. He loves to have me hold him or to lay close to me. He isn’t scared of the other pugs he just wants to be close to his human. He is doing great with his potty training. I haven’t caught him going in the house once since he came.

I think Bronson will make a great family pet. He just wants to be loved and have attention. He is ready to find his forever family .





BronxPH ID: #575
Bronx is a black male. He is just 3 years old. He was an owner surrender to a local animal control facility when they found out he was heartworm positive. He was literally moments away from being euthanized when a volunteer from another rescue organization intervened and saved him. They then contacted us to see if we wanted him and of course we never turn any pug away, regardless of their health issues. This sweet little guy will begin heartworm treatment shortly.





BrookePH ID: #5000
Brooke is about 6 years old, weighs about 15 lbs, heartworm negative, needs dental cleaning.

From Brooke's foster: Brooke is a 7 year old spunky girl who is small in size, but large in personality. She likes to be near her humans and sometimes cries if she can’t see me. She’s getting more confident, so the cries are fewer and farther between. She sleeps in bed with us, loves meal time, and LOVES to give kisses. She isn’t crazy about going into her kennel, but does stay there quietly once she’s in. She’s not big on toys or playing, but is an excellent companion dog. A day doesn’t go by that she doesn’t make us laugh with either her funny noises, her dirty looks, or the joy she exhibits when she sees us. She is healthy and house trained. Her spay will be done at the end of July.





BrooklynPH ID: #4647
Brooklyn is a young female that is suffering from demodex mange. She comes to us from the Rio Grande valley.

From Brooklyn's foster: Brooklyn is a six month old puppy with tons of energy and is thought to be from London's litter. She came to us with an awful case of Demodex mange, and just looked pitiful. She has transformed into the beautiful puppy underneath that crusty layer. She has completely come out of her shell and she gets along great with our current pack of female pugs, including one dominant alpha girl. She knows when to steer clear of the resident cat and loves to play with my boys. She is currently being house trained and is making some progress.

Brooklyn has a pending adoption.





BrooklynPH ID: #647
I am a single female fawn, and although a lady doesn’t tell her age I am 7-8 years old. I am looking for a nice loving home. I had a home with a nice lady before, but she got sick and couldn’t take care of me anymore. I like to be near my person all the time, following or sleeping at your feet. I like naps in my bed or on a blanket on the couch. I won’t get on furniture without an invitation and help up. I like to sleep in bed with my person at night or I get lonely. I am great with people of all ages and have recently been in homes with 2 and 4 year old children that I did well with. I don’t really like to play, I prefer to nap. I am pretty low key, low energy. No zoomies with this girl. I love having behind my ears scratched and occasional belly rubs. My favorite food is green beans (a girl has to keep her figure). I do love my food though. I have dry eye, but my eye drops help. I have to take them daily. I am house broken with few accidents, I do prefer that you go outside with me when I potty. Just ask me if I have to go outside to go potty and I will head for the door. I would be happiest in a home without another dog or a very submissive dog. I am not terribly fond of cats but I tolerate them. My foster mom says I am a very sweet, loving girl, with nice manners. She would be a great companion for someone retired with a lot of time to spend with her.





BrooksPH ID: #2130
Brooks is a 2 year old male and is heartworm negative. He is very bonded with his brother Kicks and will be adopted as a pair.

From Brooks' foster: We call them twins because they look so much a like in the face and whatever they are doing they are doing it together. They watch over each other almost exclusively. I do not think that they got a lot of love before. Which breaks my heart because who would not want to love on this very special boy. They get startled easy but we are working on that. When I would sweep with a broom, it would cause him to jump and run. With slow movements and an introduction to the broom the jumpiness is slowly subsiding. Brooks also still flinches when you first go to touch him but I hope with time that will also subside. He is really starting to come out of his shell. Brooks has the most adorable tongue that sticks out and you just want to touch it. He is the calmer of the two and is often torn between following me or his brother. He loves to rest his head on Kicks and clean his face. Brooks does this really cute thing with his front feet when he is standing on his back legs. It is hard to describe so you will have to just see it in person! My husband taught Brooks to give high fives and his paw fits perfect in the palm of your hand and if you are lucky he will follow it with a kiss. Brooks loves to play rough with his brother and the best part is they tire each other out. He is house trained and has not marked in the house since the 3rd day I got him. He is crate trained and is learning to walk on a leash. We are working on house manners now and he is coming along beautifully. Please consider letting Brooks and Kicks into your heart.





BrucePH ID: #270
Bruce is a 5 year old fawn male. He came to us from a local shelter. He is severe heartworm positive and has begun treatment. He has been neutered and is current on his vaccinations.

Bruce is a happy little guy! He is housebroken, gets along well with other dogs, but is also very content just hanging out with a bone or toy to chew on. He loves attention, but would prefer to lay at your feet than sit next to you on the couch. Although, he does like to cuddle on the big bed at night. He has had his heartworm treatment and is almost through with the confinement period. He will be ready to go make one lucky family very happy!





BrucePH ID: #5198
14 year old Foster Bruce is coming to PugHearts due to changes in the household.

Bruce is a fun loving guy that is deaf, but otherwise in great health looking for a place to rest his head and someone to love on him.





BrunoPH ID: #4933
Bruno is a 1 year old fawn male.

He is missing an eye, but is happy and active.

Bruno is heartworm negative and neutered.

From Bruno's foster: Bruno is a 1 year old male he is neutered heart worm negative. Bruno is a happy go lucky boy that loves to play and go on walks. He is sweet and loves people and gets along great with other dogs. He is a sweet little guy that is looking for people to cuddle and play with.






BrunoPH ID: #27
Bruno is a fawn male who came to us from a local shelter. He is a young guy, we believe he is between 1 to 2 years old. He has a severe injury to his left eye which will require surgical removal.

Right now he is on medical hold but we will be updating his profile once he is stabilized and moved from our vet's hospital into a foster home.





BrunoPH ID: #720
Bruno is a 1 year old fawn male. He is housetrained and knows how to use a doggy door. He has plenty of energy for playing with toys and other dogs. He gets along well with small children and enjoys sleeping in a people bed. He loves to sit in your lap for plenty of petting and enjoys taking walks.

Bruno has been neutered, brought up to date on his vaccinations and has no known health issues.






BrutusPH ID: #3286
Brutus is a fawn male. He is 7 years old. He is an owner surrender with his brother Putter. He is heartworm negative. He does have a skin infection right now which we are treating and will clear soon.

From Brutus' foster: In the short time that I have had Brutus, he has stolen my heart. You better adopt him quick or I might become a foster failure. This boy is sweet, calm and loving…..just a great personality. He wants to snuggle and be close. He likes to sleep in a soft dog bed or with you. In the morning he stands by the door to go out. NO accidents with this potty trained big boy. He coat and ears are the softest I have ever felt on a puggie. His face is extra wrinkly and squishy. I was told that he had limited vision but I am finding that he sees a lot. He gets around like a champ and has not even come close to my pool. He is pretty close to the perfect pug. He loves all people and other animals. Hurry and adopt him!





BrutusPH ID: #1047
Brutus is a black male. He is 7 years old and an owner surrender. He is in excellent health; he is heartworm negative. He has been neutered and is current on his vaccinations.

From Brutus' foster: Don't let his big frame scare you away, this is one sweet dog! He fits into our home with our pug great. He's gotten along with every person, child, and animal that he has met. He is a big boy and we are working on getting some pounds off of him. It helps that he LOVES squeaky toys and jumps up to play every time he hears one. He also loves his walks. He is potty trained. He isn't very interested in his food and would rather be fed carrots and frozen green beans. He loves to snuggle and would love to snuggle up to you!





BryanPH ID: #430
Bryan is a fawn male. He is about 2 or 3 years old. He was found wandering the streets with no tags or microchip. He is severe heartworm positive and will begin treatment shortly to clear them. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From Bryan's foster: Bryan is a young beautiful boy! He must not have been treated very nicely in his former life because he was extremely timid when we first brought him to our home. Despite his fear, he was very sweet and loved to be held. He's come a long way already and is trusting us more and more each day. He has a lot of personality - he loves playing with toys! We often find him pulling out toys from his toy box, growling and playing with them. He loves being in a crate - if you can't find Bryan, he's usually curled up in his crate surrounded by all of his toys (he's a bit of a toy hoarder!). He's not housebroken yet, but he is improving. He gets along very well with our other dogs. Bryan will be going through heartworm treatment within the next couple of weeks and then will be ready for a new home! Bryan needs a home with someone who is willing to be slow with him and love him like he so deserves. He is a precious boy!





BubbaPH ID: #1088
Bubba is an energetic 4 year old male. He loves to play, gets along well with kids as well as other dogs and cats.

He loves to play with our cat but really doesn't bother with other dogs. He is just not interested.

He goes into his crate on command but sleeps with his foster parents. He is house trained unless you don't take him outside when he needs to go. He stands by the door to signal he wants to go out.

Bubba has some anxiety about new places and change but he is learning to adapt well. He does not like to go outside in the backyard by himself. He has a fear that you are going to leave him outside. This fear comes from being left outside by his former owner.

Bubba loves to be close to his foster and will follow you around the house until you decide to sit down and let him sit on your lap. Bubba will make a fantastic family dog but does need to be with a family that can spend a lot of time with him.





BubbaPH ID: #4811
Bubba is a 4 yr old neutered male. He came in from Louisiana. He is an owner surrender and is HW+.

From Bubba's foster: This handsome black boy is Bubba. He is amazing. He is pretty much perfect. He's always been a pet so when he arrived he settled right in. He's a beautiful pug and so sweet. He's not much for being held but he always wants to be close to me and lays on the back of the couch right behind my head. Bubba has HW so he will probably not be available for adoption until after the first of the year. But keep this boy in your sights if you're looking for a wonderful companion.





BubblesPH ID: #4782
There is a whole lot of Bubbles to love! She is an owner surrender and is a very happy, well-adjusted girl. The only issue she has is she needs to lose about 10 pounds, she is HUGE! She is on a diet and should be showing a weight loss in the near future. Bubbles has heavy breathing issues due to the excess weight but that sure doesn’t stop her from being one of the happiest pugs I have ever had. I really don’t think her tail has stopped wagging since she arrived.

Bubbles is very loving and super well behaved. She is HW-, house trained and goes into her crate willingly each night. She doesn’t play much right now but that should change when she can move around a little better. She will be such a great pug for some lucky family that just wants a love pug. She is very healthy with the exception of her weight so she will be ready to find that wonderful home in very short order.





BubblesPH ID: #495
This little girl (13 lbs) was apparently quite neglected: she was not socialized with either dogs or people. She had to learn EVERYTHING, especially respecting boundaries (canine & human). She was also guilty of resource guarding, treats, food and toys. With consistent rules and strong pack leadership she has transformed in just a few weeks from a wild child; to a calm, friendly snuggle-bug. She is completely housebroken (to OUR house: she may need some correction to generalize where it's OK to potty and where not), she sits patiently for treats and food, takes gently when hand-fed, and loves to be held, and comes when called (she knows her name). She follows you around the house wherever you go, and she is so quiet we had to put a bell on her collar to avoid tripping over the little thing.

With her health improving she should be ready for spaying and heartworm treatment soon. She is great with people (including strangers), and is getting much better with other dogs: she has several successful trips to the dog park under her belt. Just in the last couple days she has begun snuggling with my alpha bitch when no human is available. A little love-sponge, she still doesn't know what play is. Give her time though, once healthy she may very well be the perfect pug! This is one worth waiting for. And she is SO cute...





BuckleyPH ID: #781
Buckley is a 3 year old fawn male who was picked up as a stray by a local animal control. He must have had a family at one time since he has been neutered. His skin is in appalling condition and he is low heartworm positive. He’s a little guy, just under 15 lbs, with a great face and a snuggly disposition. Sitting on my lap in the car even distracted him from his itchy skin.

From Buckley (with a little help from his foster Mom): Hi, my name is Buckley and I'm a 3 year old fawn male. I might be little, but that doesn't stop me from playing tug of war with the big boys.

I am house trained and know how to use a doggy door. I love to cuddle with my foster or the other dogs in her pack. My skin is still a little itchy but most of my hair has grown back. I like to sleep in the big bed, but I can also use a crate. I am neutered, micro chipped and current on all my shots. It makes me sad that I'm heartworm positive and am having to wait to be treated. I like children and other dogs. My foster call me her sweet little boy. I am looking for my forever home and family. Will it be you?





BudPH ID: #28
Bud is a adorable black male who was found wandering the streets without tags or a microchip. A Good Samaritan took him in but was unable to keep him so we were contacted to find him a home. We estimate he is only about 1 year old. He is in good health. He has been brought up to date on his vaccinations, microchipped and neutered.

Bud is a little sweetheart who is going to make someone a wonderful pet. He is housebroken and well mannered. He gets along well with other dogs too. This guy just needs someone who will look after him and spoil him rotten.






BuddhaPH ID: #4315
Buddha is a black male, who came to PugHearts as a young (three year's old), owner surrender. His foster mom cannot imagine why he was surrendered because he's was so sweet. He loves belly rubs and needs love and attention. These qualities were instantly recognized by an adoptive family. We are happy to report that after only a week in foster care, Buddha, as well as another one of our female Pugs, was adopted by a wonderful family with two children: a boy and a girl. Congratulations to the family and good bye Buddha! We loved you for a short while and are so happy that you found your fur-ever home!





BuddyPH ID: #4359
Buddy is a 10 mo. old pug that does not have any health problems. The first thing I noticed about him is his amazingly buggy pug eyes! Buddy took a little longer to be comfortable with playing with toys and the other dogs, but now has no problem with chasing a toy or other pugs around. He has a calm personality which is surprising with how young he is. He loves to lay beside you and rest his head on your lap. He is also a licker and will give you tons of kisses. He is a bit of a talker by barking at your or the other pugs when he wants something. Buddy is potty trained and is very good at letting himself out through the doggy door. He also listens very well and is good at obeying. Buddy is a very handsome boy who will make a great family member!





BuddyPH ID: #919
Hey everyone my name is Buddy. I'm two year old fawn Pug. I was living in the streets for a little while. I bounced around from home to home until I was turning into Pug Hearts. Speaking of hearts, I am heartworm positive but i'm being treated now and should be a healty Pug in no time. The heart worms aren't slowing me down at all. I'm living with fosters now and the best thing about that is I have two pug friends to play with. We get along great! It would be nice if I could go to a home with other Pugs or Pug friends. My fosters are teaching me to walk on leash. I like going on walks because I'm a young energetic Pug. I might not be good in a home with small children, as I get really excited and nip a little. But don't let that scare you away from little old Buddy. I'm a good Pug, I'm house trained and when I'm not playing with my new friends I'm snuggled up with my fosters or even in my crate. I love toys and even play tug of war with my friends. As any Pug I enjoy a good nap and I can get a little loud with my snoring. But thats what makes me Buddy! Can I be your Buddy?





BuddyPH ID: #29
Meet Buddy. Buddy is named after the human who lived among elves in the movie 'Elf'. Our 'Buddy' lives among Pugs but is actually a Pug/Boston Terrier mix. He is all Pug at heart though, and that is what really counts. Buddy is a young male, about 10 months old. He is as playful as his age suggests - he loves to run, play tug of war, or chew on a bone or toy. He's also extremely sweet and loveable. When he slows down, he loves to do it curled up on your lap or next to you. It's hard not to fall in love with this little guy instantly - he has that sweet puggy look in his eyes that will melt any heart.

He has lived the last 6 months of his life in a crate so he is currently in the process of being housebroken, but he is learning well from his fellow pug roomates. He gets along well with other dogs, but he is very playful, so would do best in a home who has a playful dog as well. He has no known health issues. He's neutered, microchipped and up to date on shots. If you are in search of a young, sweet, playful companion - Buddy is your guy!





BuddyPH ID: #5245
Buddy 6 is an active 6 year old smutty color fawn male. He is heartworm negative and neutered with lots of energy.

From Buddy's foster: He gets along with our pack but loves his humans. House broken and is the new kisser around. He would like great for kids and active adults. You have to see this guy!






BugPH ID: #31
My name is Bugs - like the bunny, not the insect! I'm a 5 1/2 year old black male. I have been neutered and am up to date on all my shots. I've had an injury in the past to one of my eyes so I've got a little vision loss in one eye but other than that I'm in good shape. I had a faintly positive heartworm test, but they tell me that with monthly Heartguard I should 'convert' to heartworm negative in a few months. (Apparently that's one test they want you to fail!)

I'm what they call an owner surrender - which means my family couldn't keep me or my brother Maximus anymore. But since they kept us outside & it's starting to get to that hot time of year, I think that's a good thing. I know my name and can answer to it when called. I'm also what they call 'crate trained' though I'd rather run around free! I've decided I like living in houses and would like a family that would keep me inside all the time. I'm even willing to share that home with another dog - or even a cat!

Everyone tells me how cute I am. I know it's true and I make a point of letting people have a chance to pet me and tell me just how sweet I am. I also like to play with other dogs, though I don't understand all of the neat games they play since nobody's ever played them with me. Maybe someone could teach me and then I'd reward them with puggy-luv!





BugsyPH ID: #559
Bugsy is a fawn male. He is 3 years old. He is in good health except for having some hot spots on his fur from living outside. He is heartworm negative. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations. He is a beautiul boy just waiting for his forever home!





Bugsy 2PH ID: #753
Bugsy is a black male. He comes to us as an owner surrender. He is 7 years old. He is in good health; he is heartworm negative. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From Bugsy's foster: Bugsy is one of the sweetest happiest pugs I have ever met! He has a slight ‘under bite’, and when he gets tired the tip of his toung hangs straight out of his mouth! He has clearly been a spoiled pet most of his life, and seems to have good house manners and is housetrained. He gets along very well with dogs his own size, and with a little time has learned to get along with my larger dog.

Bugsy is a big cuddler, and would rather spend time in a persons lap then playing with other dogs. Bugsy is ready for a family of his own that will love and appreciate this him for the sweet, happy pug he is!





BunnyPH ID: #32
Bunny is an adorable fawn female. She was a stray that somebody found on the street. When nobody claimed her we were contacted to find her a new home. We estimate she is about 4 years old. She has been spayed, microchipped and brought current on her vaccinations. Thankfully she is heartworm negative and is now on preventative.

We have named her Bunny for 2 reasons: firstly we picked her up on Easter weekend and secondly she hops like a bunny when she runs! Really, she does! Poor little Bunny has some old hip injuries that cause her 'hopping' movements when she runs. She moves her back legs together, rather than in sequence. It looks like she might have been hit by a car and never received any treatment, which allowed her hips to heal out of correct alignment. It is too late to correct it now, but it doesn't seem to cause her any pain or give her any problems. In fact, this little girl seems VERY happy. She loves people and being held and loves to be the center of attention. This is one little lady that loves life.





BunnyPH ID: #4639
Bunny is a 4 year old female. She is heartworm negative and already spayed.

From Bunny's foster: Bunny is a 4 year old little girl that was an owner surrender. She is a bit timid and nervous at times but warms up quickly. Bunny gets along well with other dogs and kids. She loves to play but can be shy as well.





BurkePH ID: #4652
Burke is a 5 year old male. He comes to us from a local shelter.

Burke is HW positive and will need to go through heartworm treatment prior to being ready for adoption.

From Burke's foster: This is my foster, Burke. He's about 5 years old, weighs 15 pounds, and is the absolute sweetest thing ever! He only likes to sleep on his doggy bed, flat on his back. He gets along great with everyone in the house, and does great with children. He's house and doggy door trained, and has the cutest grumble of a bark. He loves sitting outside chasing squirrels and growling at birds!





BurlPH ID: #3288
Burl is a fawn male pug mix. He is 5 years old. He is heartworm positive and will begin treatment shortly. He came to PugHearts with a broken leg which has been treated; once he has healed properly he will be neutered. He has been microchipped and brought current on his vaccinations.

From Burl's foster: Burl is the happiest little boy ever and is he little. I have nicknamed Burl, Munchkin, because he is my smallest pug. His tail is constantly wagging and he loves being held and giving kisses. He loves everyone and gets along with other dogs. Due to his broken leg, he hasn’t been able to play with the other pugs but he enjoys snuggling with them. I know this little guy is going to be a lot of fun once his leg is healed. He is very smart and has learned to “sit” and once he’s better, we will start working on other commands. Burl learned how to use the doggy door and doesn’t go in the house if he can get out the door. He has learned that the crate is where he sleeps at night and goes right in when it’s time for bed. He wasn’t well taken care of before and is very grateful to have good food, plenty of clean water and lots of love in his foster home.

Burl will make someone a great member of their family. Are you the one to give Burl his forever home?





BurniePH ID: #3174
Burnie came to us after he was hit by a car and found by one of PugHearts' previous adopters. He has a fractured pelvis and his hip is out of place. The pelvis will have to heal first and then we will do surgery on the hip. Burnie will be on crate rest for 4-6 weeks to allow the pelvis time to repair itself. He is heartworm negative, so at least he does not have to deal with that.

From his foster Mom: I brought Burnie home last night. He is one fine figure of a man pug. He's beautiful and so well formed. I would say he's the George Strait of the Pug World!! He is not in the least bit happy to be in the crate but it's for his own good. He can make some of the most soul wrenching noises I've ever heard, but I have to be strong!! I went to Pets Mart today to get him a Kong and some chews that he can have while supervised. No one else at my house gets treats because with so many it just starts fights but I figure Burnie deserves a little something special. Another little tidbit about him is that of all the 200 or so fosters I've had he is hands down, no contest the loudest snoring pug I have ever encountered. OMG, last night he kept me awake from another room with the door closed! It really surprises me how he moves around, I think he must have a pretty high threshold for pain.





BurtPH ID: #3194
Burt is a fawn male. He is about 7 years old. He was found living on the streets and in very poor health. He was severe heartworm positive and has completed treatment.

From Burt's foster: Burt is one of those pugs that came to me as a hospice but we forgot to tell him. He has made such progress in the year that he has been with PH that it has surprised a number of people. He has gone from a skinny pug with the absolute worst breath I have encountered that couldn’t walk across the room to a pleasantly plump pug who will play with Megan. His health improved so much that he was able to have his teeth cleaned!! When he arrived they said he wouldn’t survive being put under to have it done. I promised him that if he didn’t die he could lick me as much as he wanted when his breath didn’t smell like something dead lived in his mouth. (I really don’t like to be licked) Well, Burt remembered that promise because he licks me every chance he gets.

Burt is an exceptionally well behaved young man. He’s only 7 years old, potty trained and really needs to have a family of his own. He’s so friendly that anyone would fall for him. Even though Burt’s health has improved by leaps and bounds he has a few issues and will always need to take medicine for heart support. His heartworms were beyond bad and they damaged his heart. However, Burt is now HW- ?

Burt just needs someone to love him. He would be a great fit for a couple who is more settled or have older children. Burt likes everyone but he needs a more laid back environment. Burt is a true rescue, do you have what it takes to make sure he has a great life from here on out?

Update: Heartworm treatment has now been completed!





BuscemiPH ID: #33
Buscemi is a 3 1/2 year-old male fawn. He is current on all of his vaccinations and has been microchipped. He is an owner surrender due to family changes.

He is in excellent health and has recently been neutered. He is not presently housebroken but is quickly learning what a doggie door is and how to use it.

Buscemi is a bit shy when meeting new people and animals at first, but once he warms up to you he is quite friendly and playful. He does very well with children and other dogs.

Buscemi will make an excellent addition to a lucky family out there. He's just waiting to hear from them now!





BusterPH ID: #34
Buster is a 7 year old male fawn. He has been neutered and microchipped. He is up to date on his vaccinations and is heartworm negative. He is good health except for being a bit on the 'fluffy' side - nothing a bit of a diet won't fix!

Buster is an owner surrender due to family changes. He is housebroken and gets on well with other pugs. He loves to go for walks. He also has quite a bit of a playful side and does not act his age. In between play periods, he loves to sit on a lap and have a nap. He's a very good snuggler and will make somebody a very loving lap dog.





BusterPH ID: #817
Buster is a big softy. He is about 2-3 years old, heartworm negative and a real love. Buster loves to play with the other active pugs here. He came to us in good condition and with great house manners. Buster would love a home where he can play with other dogs and then rest and cuddle with his people on the couch. He loves stuffed toys and will carry them around with him. Buster is a bigger pug and would do well playing with large or small dogs. He is quite active and will need a way to get his energy release daily. If you are looking for a sweet young, active pug…Buster is waiting for you.





ButchPH ID: #35
Butch is a gorgeous young fawn male. We estimate he is between 1 1/2 and 2 years old. He was found wandering the streets and when nobody came for him we were contacted to find him a home. This little guy seems to have been out on his own for a while as he has an ugly (but non-contagious) yeast infection on his skin. He is receiving medicated baths and will recovery quickly. He is in otherwise excellent health. He has been brought up to date on his vaccinations, microchipped and neutered.

Butch is a very excited, happy guy. He loves to play and is a very social pug. He gets on very well with other dogs and would do well in a multi-pet household.

ButtonPH ID: #5014
Button is a female from the Rio Grande valley. Updates to come

From Button's foster: Button is such a sweet, tiny girl. I have had her for a while because she was sick from all the ticks that covered her little body. She has been on antibiotic for almost a month and will be spayed once she has completed them. Oddly enough, even though she had ticks everywhere she was heartworm negative, thank goodness.

Button has blossomed since she came to Pughearts from a scared, shrinking little girl to a little package of dynamite. Since she has started feeling better she has found her voice and will let me know when she wants something. For such a tiny girl she sure is bossy. Button is very well behaved, she is housebroken and will just lay on the couch all night chilling out. I think she will probably blossom more when she is in a home where she has less pugs to compete with for attention. This little girl (10 – 12 pounds) is definitely one that you need to come meet and get to know. She is an angel.





BuzzPH ID: #36
Buzz is a very sweet fawn male. We estimate he is between 2 to 3 years old. He has been brought current on his vaccinations, microchipped and neutered. He seems healthy but definitely needs to gain some weight as he is pretty skinny right now.

Buzz is a very gentle boy who has obviously been someone's pet at some time. He knows some commands like 'sit'. As he was not neutered when we found him, he has a habit of marking his territory. However, he is now neutered and his foster Mom is working on the housebreaking. He's a smart boy so we think he'll figure it out. He gets along well with other dogs but is rather timid - definitely not an Alpha dog. He would do well as an only pet or with a calm companion. Though he plays with others, he much prefers to sit next to you on a sofa.





BuzzPH ID: #346
Full Description Coming Soon!






CaboPH ID: #4727
This is one happy pug. His name is Cabo & he is three years old and heartworm negative. He loves going on walks & jumps up on his hind legs when you grab for the leash & looks like he is dancing. He has the perfect head tilt & funniest little personality. He has fallen asleep twice now while standing/sitting.... And it's one of the cutest things I think I have ever seen. He still needs to be neutered but can not wait to meet his furever family.





CadburyPH ID: #2116
Cadbury is a fawn male. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From Cadbury's foster: Cadbury is a beautiful little boy. He's probably about 12 - 13 pounds and has the cutest face out there. He's very playful and loves being with the other fosters. He does like to be around people and will follow me around to keep track of where I am.

He's very well behaved and no trouble at all. He will make a wonderful family pet. He's not big enough to knock small children down and he loves to play and run around. I think he will either need to be with an active family with children to play with or to have a companion pug to keep him company. Like 99.9% of pugs, he is not a loner.





CadePH ID: #5031
Cade is a young male that comes to us from a local shelter.

He is on his way to the vet and we will update soon.

From Cade's foster: Foster Cade has the heart of a pup. He is a burst of energy but loves to be held and snuggled, something he wasn't use to but really loves it. He is being introduced to snacks and vegetables and really enjoying this new adventure. He is working on potty training. He will have is big boy surgery on August 18th and in a week or so will be ready for his forever home. He loves adventuring outside and chewing on chew toys and playing tug a war with toys and socks!! He is approximately 2 years old but this Foster mom thinks a little younger. He will be a wonderful addition to anyone's home as a single dog or with others.





CadePH ID: #5227
Cade is a 2 yr old male. He has an old eye injury that has healed, but taken the vision in that eye. He is HW negative.





CaesarPH ID: #390
Caesar is a female male. He is 2 years old. He is a small boy - he only weighs 12 lbs. He is being neutered and brought current on his vaccinations. He is heartworm negative.





CalebPH ID: #37
Caleb is a cute black male. He was found wandering the streets without a tag or microchip and nobody came looking for him. So, now we are going to find him the perfect home. He is a young guy - somewhere between 1 to 1 1/2 years old. He has been brought up to date on his vaccinations, microchipped and neutered. He does have an old injury to his right eye which does not appear to bother him. Unfortunately, because he was left to fend for himself on the streets, he was not on any heartworm preventative and is now heartworm positive. He has begun treatment.

Now that Caleb has been with us for a little while, he has really come out of his shell! He is VERY much a puppy, full of life and energy. He is extremely curious and playful. Since he's obviously not been someone's pet for a while (if ever) he is still learning how to be an indoor doggie and is still working on house training. But since he's so young and eager we don't think that will take long for him to figure out. He seems to already have the treat thing mastered!





CalistaPH ID: #1026
Calista is a black female. She came to us from a local animal control facility. She is 4 years old. When we picked her up, her eye had been injured and had ruptured, so our vet removed it. She is in otherwise good health; she is heartworm negative. She is current on her vaccinations and microchipped.





CalvinPH ID: #920
Calvin is a black male. He is neutered, microchipped and current on his vaccinations.

From Calvin's foster: Calvin is an 8 year old black male who was surrendered after his owner passed away. He is an active, playful boy. He loves to play fetch with all kinds of toys. He will even play soccer with a pug sized ball! We are working on his manners when he has a toy...he does growl if another dog comes too close but never does anything more than growl. Calvin is great with kids and completely potty trained.





CalvinPH ID: #4462
Calvin and Hobbes are 2 Bugg brothers that come from a local shelter.

They are being evaluated at the vet.

Hobbes is heartworm negative and sadly, Calvin is heartworm positive.

From Calvin's foster: Calvin is a 2 year old brindle BUGG (boston terrier - pug mix). He still has some "puppy" in him and is full of energy. He is a very sweet boy and I think he would do best in a home with a female dog as he does show a little bit of dominance from time to time. Calvin also just BEAT heartworms!!! So he is now a completely healthy little guy and is ready for his forever home! I think he would be fine with children although he has not been around any yet. Calvin is also house trained well and even uses my doggie door. Any family to adopt him will be a lucky one!





CameronPH ID: #1053
Cameron is a fawn male. He is a Pug/Brussels Griffon mix. He was found as a stray. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From Cameron's foster: Cameron, I have nothing bad to say about this little 10 month old Brussels Griffon mix. If I wasn't so passionate about fostering I'd absolutely fail with him! He is sweet, cute, loving, adorable, tiny, and every other positive thing you can think of. He is potty trained. He cuddles with me all the time, at 10 lbs, he doesnt't take up much space. He enjoys playing with the other dogs, he's not hyper. He gets along fine with all types of animals, he's not too curious about other animals to bother them. He doesn't shed, a pug that doesn't shed! In my opinion he' perfect!





CamillePH ID: #5252
Camille comes to PugHearts with some medical needs that we are taking care of.

Currently she is being treated for a bladder infection. She will be feeling better in no time and looking for her forever family.

Update from Camille's foster: Camille is a 5 yr old female who has had a hard life, but she doesn't let it get her down. She spent the first 3 years of her life in a crate before a kind lady was able to rescue her. Unfortunately, she was very ill for a long time and again Camille was left to stay in a crate until her owner recently passed and she came to PugHearts. Camille (I call her Camie) loves her squeaky toys and being in your lap. She's a great snuggle bunny at bedtime and loves to give kisses. We are working on house breaking and it gets better each day. She is ready to find that ever lasting home and family.





CammiePH ID: #4830
Cammie is a 4 yr old fawn female from a local shelter.

She is heartworm negative and looking for the perfect home.

From Cammie's foster: Cammie is a 4 year old girl who came to us from the Galveston animal shelter. She is healthy and looking for her furever home. Cammie is boisterous and full of love and life! She has a BIG outgoing personality and gets along with everyone. She's fantastic with kids, little and big, and all other dogs, little and big. She has quite a bit of puppy play and energy left but like most pugs loves to spend her day snuggled up next to you. She's super easy going. Will happily be in a crate or in your bed. She learned where to potty in a record 3 days and hasn't had one accident since (although she still loves her little treat and potty praise when she does go outside). Her favorite things are going outside, playing fetch, chew bones, and car rides. She's a talker. She loves to let you know just how happy she is. But she listens so well too. She really is such a great dog and if you're looking for a younger fun excited girl, she would be perfect for you!






CandacePH ID: #3240
Candace is a 2 year old beautiful, tiny girl. Despite being used for breeding so young, this little girl is still very happy, playful and very well mannered! She loves to play with other dogs, toys, and even dog-friendly kitties:) she is now spayed, and healthy, and is living the good life she deserves!





CandicePH ID: #994
Candice is a fawn female. She is 3 years old and came in with 5 siblings. She is in good health; she is heartworm negative. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on her vaccinations.

From Candice's foster: Hi! My name is Candice and I’m 3 years old. I spent much of my early years making babies so I am quite a Mothering Soul. I love to sit next to you, or on your lap, and love, snuggle and kiss. My foster buddies and I play real well together. I think I could be part of a pug pack, like I am now, or be your one and only sweetheart pug. I was so busy with my puppies in my early youth, I’m still young you know, that I didn’t learn a whole lot of tricks. I will do anything for a treat or attention for that matter, so I think I can learn real fast. I love my toys and a good soft pillow. I am sweet, petite and heartworm negative. Please let me be your forever girl! Love and Kisses, Candice.





CandyPH ID: #5236
Candy comes to PugHearts from a local shelter where she was turned in by her previous home. She is about 3-4 yrs old, and sadly, heartworm positive. She will have to go through heartworm treatment prior to adoption.

From Candy's foster: Candy is a 3 year old female pug. She was given up by her previous owners for unknown reasons. Candy goes potty outside, snuggles on the couch with you, and sleeps in her crate at night with no complaints. She gets along great with other dogs of different sizes and temperaments. She loves to play with toys and chew on nylabones. Candy was born with both eyes but her left eye didn't develop. Her right eye is a beautiful buttery brown color. She has no difficulties getting around the house and jumping on and off the couch. Candy will be a great addition to your household and will love you forever!

CaponePH ID: #4801
Capone is a 7 yr old male. He is heartworm negative and looking for a family to love him. Foster Capone loves kids. So far, he is seriously the best dog I have had in my house. It's crazy and I'm not used to it. Even though he has his balls, he hasn't marked once or had any accidents. He doesn't beg for food. He barely barks. He doesn't play with toys or sleep in dog beds. I don't think he had one or any toys. However, he loved the Nylabone. He is such a sweet, sweet boy.





CappyPH ID: #4964
Cappy is a young male from the Rio Grande valley. He is heartworm negative and being treated for a skin infection and irritated eyes





Captain KirkPH ID: #1044
Captain Kirk is a fawn male. He is about 3 years old. He came to us with severe sarcoptic mange which has now cleared. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations. He is heartworm negative.

From Captain Kirk's foster: Captain Kirk is a sweet little boy about 3 years old. He is a cuddler, he'll do whatever necessary to make sure his nap time is on your lap, he doesn't care how many pups he may have to climb over to get to it. I absolutely love how snugly he is! He is crate and doggie door trained. He gets along just fine with all the other pups. He has dry eye and needs drops daily, other than that he is young, healthy and ready for his forever home.





CarlPH ID: #4458
Carl is a fawn male pug who comes to us from a high kill shelter.

From Carl (with some help from his foster): Hi, my name is Carl. I am a 2 year old, fawn male, HW-, neutered, and up to date on all my vaccines. I am crate trained, can use a doggy door, and have never had any accidents in the house. I can walk on a leash, and I really like to go for rides in the car. Some of my favorite foods are yogurt, green beans, carrots, pumpkin, and sardines.

I had a failed fracture repair to my right front leg when I first arrived, and was really lucky to have a second repair to restore use of my leg versus an amputation. Since I hadn’t walked on my leg for a really long time, I don’t really use it to walk on, although I occasionally think about using it. That’s something I just have to relearn. I use my paw to hold my Hedgehog, Pug Eggs, Bones, and will swat your hand when you tease me like a cat! You might want to limit my access to things I can climb up and jump off of, as I will explore given the opportunity, although I’m not overly curious. I have dry eye and take one eye drop in each eye once a day, which I enjoy because I get treats as a reward for being such a good boy!

I’m really loveable and cuddly, and would do well with limited animals and children, as I get a bit nervous if I think I might get trampled. I have a very calm temperament, am not alpha or aggressive. My favorite thing is spending time with my human, because it’s my job to be your companion. If you are sitting, walking, or lying down, I’ll be close by. If you’re busy, I can lie down on a bed near you, to keep you company.

As Carl’s Foster Mom, I can absolutely say Carl’s challenges have instilled a strong sense of discipline. He is a Puppy, so you still get the funny, loveable, and adorable little guy you’ve been looking for. Thank you for considering Carl for your family.





CarleePH ID: #5178
Carlee is a sweet girl that comes to PugHearts with her brother Buddy.

From Carlee's foster: Sweet, gorgeous Foster Carly is in the house. So far, loves kids, not scared of men, and loves other dogs!

She is a 6 year old, healthy female (about 16-18lbs I am guessing) and has the most beautiful apricot color and soft, soft fur. Can't wait to learn more about her!





CarliePH ID: #38
Carlie is a sweet fawn female. She was found wandering the streets by a Good Samaritan who called us to find her a home. She is approximately 1 to 1 1/2 years old. She has been brought current on her vaccinations and microchipped. She appears to be in good health except for her skin. She seems to be suffering from a flea allergy which has left her looking a bit scruffy right now. However, she is on antibiotics and flea medication which will get her looking good as new in no time.

Carlie is a very sweet, friendly girl who loves people. She also gets on very well with other dogs.





CarlosPH ID: #4494
Carlos is a 6 yr old black male that was an owner surrender. Carlos came to his foster home with double ear infections, dry eye, a fungal skin infection where he has lost a lot of his hair, and is heartworm positive. Even with all these issues he is the happiest pug who loves to wag his tail. Carlos is a little guy (only 15 lbs) with a big heart. He is a great smuggler that fits perfectly in your lap. He loves little dog beds that he can curl up in or sleeping in my dirty clothes in my linen closet. Carlos is very calm and I have never heard him bark. He gets along great with the other pugs and loves snuggling and playing with them. He loves nylabones and loofa toys, but doesn’t play too much fetch. I think this may be because he has a hard time running due to his back legs. Carlos’ back legs are very weak, I am sure once he gains a couple pounds and gets some muscle in them they will be better, but I think he will always have some problems with them. Even with this issue he LOVES going on walks, he gets very excited when you put on his harness. He has a great spirit and will not let anything hold him back. Carlos is crate trained, he stays in the crate while we are gone and sleeps in it at night. He also knows how to use the doggy door and is fully potty trained. I am absolutely in love with this little boy, he is so sweet and just enjoys being loved by his person. Carlos will make a wonderful new addition to a family he has so much love to give and wants a family to give it to.

CarmelaPH ID: #4538
Carmela is a beautiful fawn pug who is about 3 years old. Carmela was brought to Pughearts from a shelter in the valley so not much is known about her previous home. Carmela is currently potty trained, fixed and is heart work negative! Ms. Carmela is a ball of energy and provides endless laughs. She is so playful and is so excited to see you all day. I must add that she is quite the shoe stealer!! As soon as you come home she will move your shoes into the bedroom to ensure that you don't leave her again! She has been doing well with her foster brother but does have some behavioral issues that we are working on; she would rather be a solo pug and have all your attention but she's getting better! Ms. Carmela loves playing with kids and loves the attention they give her. She did have puppies recently, so her stomach is still a bit swollen and recovering but it's getting better every day. Her personality is the best! She loves to cuddle and play all day. She is always doing something to make us laugh and I'm sure she will do the same for her forever family! If you are looking for a family friendly dog who loves to cuddle and play then this is your girl!





CarmenPH ID: #5069
Carmen is a sweet pug mix from a Texas shelter.

We will update once she has been seen by the vet.






CarolPH ID: #4568
Carol is a tiny fawn pug weighing 9.4 lbs when she came to PH. She is an owner surrender from the swamps of Louisiana. Her left front leg was deformed where she was walking on the joint instead of the pad. Our wonderful vet, Dr. H, fixed her right up so now she walks on the pad of her foot. She is HW negative and 2 years old.

Carol is a little spitfire. She has so much personality and brings joy and laughter into our house. She claims all toys as hers and takes them away from the other dogs. She loves to chew on toys or your fingers, loves to cuddle and snuggle under the covers and is Velcro. She is true pug and protects her food bowl and growls at anyone or dog that comes near. She has perfected that pitiful begging face and tilted head. She loves to run zoomies and is very disobedient. We believe she came from backyard breeders so leash and potty training is ongoing. She is crate trained. Because she is so cute, she gets away with murder. But we don’t care, she is adorable. Whoever gets this baby will feel the same way too!





Carol NapPH ID: #4870
Introducing Foster Carol NAP. Carol is a 4 yr old "Not A Pug" (NAP), but maybe she has a touch of pug in her.

There really isn’t a need to write a bio for Bing and Carol. Their picture speaks for them. They really are too cute for words. Bing and Carol are about 4 years old and are a bonded pair. And what a pair they are! I have fostered a lot of pugs and these two are probably the most entertaining I have ever had. They are constantly playing and running around (they are very active), they will stop and look at me and I can’t help but smile, they are just beyond. They are very well behaved, even though they are active. They keep each other entertained and will pull any of the other fosters into their play that they can talk into it. They are very social little guys. They also like to cuddle and if you have one to cuddle there will soon be two. They never are far from each other.

We think they are from the same litter. Even though they look so different you can see how they look alike in the mouth and face. When Carol is wet they really look like each other. Also, I need to let everyone know that Carol does not need to be groomed any more than a pug. Her hair does not mat, she doesn’t need to have her hair trimmed ( it just looks great) and her shedding is minimal (nonexistent compared to a pug). Her scruffy look comes naturally and if I brush her all she has to do is shake and there is the scruffy girl again. ?

These are two sweethearts that I wouldn’t mind having forever but they need a home of their own with their own family. I will miss them more than I can say but some family is going to be so happy they opened their home and hearts to two of the sweetest little creatures in the world.





CarolinePH ID: #4643
Caroline is a young female. She is heartworm negative and will be spayed soon.

Caroline wanted to tell people she has had her big girl surgery and is pending adoption when she has fully recovered. She is 100% pug and is about 2 years old. She has a beautiful squashed pug face with deep wrinkles. She is sassy and full of life. Her new family is going to be so lucky to adopt this sweet baby.





CarolinePH ID: #39
Caroline is a 3 year old black female. She came to us from a local animal control office, so not much is known about her past life. She did have puppies recently but she will be spayed prior to placement. She has been brought up to date on her vaccinations and microchipped. She appears to be a very healthy girl with no known medical issues.

Since she came to us from a shelter we don't know anything about prior living arrangements, but we do know that she gets on very well with other dogs. She is a sweet, happy girl who loves attention.





CarriePH ID: #587
Carrie is a fawn female. She comes to us from a local shelter. We believe she is about 4 years old. She is in good health. She has been spayed, microchipped and brought current on her vaccinations.

Do not let that little patch of gray on her face fool you into thinking this is some shy, retiring little old lady! This girl is full of beans! She's a small girl - about 15 lbs - but she plays hard! She gets on very well with other dogs.





CarsonPH ID: #764
Carson is a fawn male. He is 5 years old and an owner surrender through no fault of his own. He is in good health; he is heartworm negative. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From Carson's foster: He is very laid back, loves to play, great with my 18 month old (even when he is pulling on him before I can correct.) He will come to me when he needs to go outside as he hasn't completely figured out the doggie door yet. We don't have a big enough bed to have the dogs with us but Carson sleeps well in his crate overnight. He is a cuddler and will hang out on the couch with me. We don't have any toys for him so he plays with our son's. However, unlike our other dog, he doesn't chew them up. He doesn't bark a lot but has woken up our son a couple of times. I can't tell if he's a dominant personality or not. Our other dog is very dominant and they have "duked it out" a few times over the past few days. He seems to have settled into the "pack". He is a wonderful dog and will make a great friend for a family.





CarterPH ID: #586
Carter is a fawn male. He comes to us from a local animal control facility. We believe he is around 3 years old. He had worms when he first came to us but they have been treated. He is in excellent health. He is heartworm negative. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

Carter is a sweet, gentle fellow. He is very easy going and mellow. He's a loving boy who would do well as an only dog or in a less active household. He does well on walks, but is happiest hanging around with his human.





CarterPH ID: #4867
Carter is a young man that comes to PugHearts looking for a family that understands active young pugs.

Cary GrantPH ID: #4732
Cary Grant is a 5 yr old male found running at large.

He is heartworm positive and will need to be neutered.

From Cary Grant (with some help from his foster): 1. Hello all. I was named after Cary Grant, an English stage and Hollywood film actor who became an American citizen in 1942. Mr. Grant was an orphan and foster kid just like me. I do not boast of a transatlantic accent, however I have a debonair demeanor, and "dashing good looks". I may never know Katherine Hepburn, but I love the leading ladies of Pug Heart's and my foster mommy is my current leading lady who considers me an "efficient kisser" Heart worms may delay me for a little while, but in due time, I will be a healthy neutered three year old who is up to date on all my vaccinations. Yes, My name is Carry Grant and am considered one of classic PugHearts' leading

CasanovaPH ID: #3238
Casanova is a fawn male. He is 2 to 3 years old. He comes to us from an out of town animal control facility where he was found as a stray. During his time there he was attacked by another animal and came to us with significant wounds. He has been treated by our fantastic vet and has made a brilliant recovery. He has been neutered, microchipped and brought current on his vaccinations. He is heartworm negative.

From Casanova's foster: Casanova certainly lives up to his name! Such a lover! He loves playing with other pugs and cuddling with people, too. He is also very fond of Pug Eggs. He was found with wounds from an animal attack, but they are healing nicely, and he shows no signs of fear of larger dogs. He was already potty trained and crate trained very quickly. He has an old hip injury that might not have healed correctly in the past; it gives his walk a little swagger. He looks like he is strutting! But it does not slow him down at all. He learned very quickly how to navigate stairs and as soon as people are near a couch or bed he will jump up and join them! He is such a sweet boy; he will make a family very happy for sure.





CaseyPH ID: #40
Casey is a beautiful fawn female. She is 8 years old, though she certainly doesn't look or act like it. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on her rabies vaccination.

Casey is an owner surrender. Her former owner reported she had some medical issues several years ago, but she has been examined by our vet and has been found to be in good health, though she does have a slight limp to her right front leg due to an old injury. She is on no medications and requires no special treatment. However, she does have poor teeth and will require some extractions.

Casey was formerly kept outside. She is currently in foster with several other dogs and is re-learning how to be part of a family. She is housebroken though she has not figured out the doggie door yet. She sleeps in bed with her foster parents and their dogs and has integrated well. She is obviously not used to being cuddled, but is learning fast! She would thrive in an environment where she can receive plenty of attention. She also loves water and would do well in a home with a pool.

Cassandra






CassidyPH ID: #712
Cassidy is a fawn female. She is about 4 years old. She came to us with her "sister" Esperanza after they were found in a lake by a Good Samaritan who rescued them and contacted us. She is severe heartworm positive and will begin treatment immediately. From Cassidy's foster: Our guess is that Cassidy didn't have the greatest life prior to coming to PugHearts, she looks older than she is - but whatever happened to her before, she has completely left it behind her! This little girl is a firecracker! She is sweet and so playful. She has an affinity for stuffed toys, it is her goal in life to rid the world of "squeekers". She lights up when she sees a new toy, and she'll search out the toy basket until she finds something suitable. She's a smart one, this little girl, she's doing her best to make us her personal servants! If she drops a toy from the couch, she'll look at it and whine, and look at us like, "hey, are you gonna get that for me?". We obviously fell for it for a while, but now she knows that after a minute or two, we're not falling for the sweet face gig :-) She gets along well with our other dogs, she is food oriented, so we keep a close eye that she doesn't try to steal others' food, but otherwise she's a normal diva lady pug. She is housebroken and crate trained. She's done well sleeping in a crate and in the big bed with her foster family too. This girl has got spirit and will make a fun, loving companion for you!





CassiePH ID: #5103
Cassie is a precious 3 yr old female that was hit by a car.

She has a shattered pelvis and a dislocated hip.

She is severe heartworm positive.

Along with multiple surgeries to repair the pelvis she will have to go through heartworm treatment before adoption.





CecilPH ID: #5255
Cecil is a 6 yr old male from a local shelter. He is heartworm negative and scheduled to be neutered.

This sweet guy has survived distemper and have the muscle and facial twitches to prove it. He LOVES to cuddle and craves human attention...not to mention the fact that he has the cutest under bite ever!

From Cecil's foster: I took one look at Cecil’s picture when he was picked up and knew that he was destined for my home. Cecil is 6 years old and heartworm negative. He is scheduled to be neutered next week and will be at the Dog Show looking for his new family.

Cecil had a pretty bad start in life but he’s a super tough guy, he survived distemper! We got him from the shelter because they thought he actually had it now but the tics he has are from the neurological damage that was caused when he was younger. He has minor tics all the time but when he goes to sleep they increase in intensity. They sure don’t seem to bother him though, I guess it’s like anything that is experienced long enough, it just becomes the norm and doesn’t bother us anymore. I must admit it did bother me when I first got him, I didn’t see how he could actually rest but after time passed I could see that it is a complete non-issue for him.

Cecil is a very needy pug, he wants to be with me ALL the time. If I get up in the middle of the night, all the others don’t even move but Cecil is on my heels to make sure he doesn’t lose me. He LOVES to be held and loved and he loves to give kisses. He is the best little guy and will give someone devotion for the rest of his life. Cecil is such a special little guy and I sure hope he finds a family that thinks he’s as special as I do.

CedarPH ID: #5092
Cedar was born October 19, 2016. He was 3 days old when he came into PugHearts. Cedar, his mom and siblings were rescued from a local shelter. Mom Autumn is a long bodied terrier mix weighing 8 lbs. and dad is unknown. Cedar will remain a small dog. He is tri-colored - black, white and brown with white socks on his front paws. As I'm writing this, he is 7 weeks old and starting to wean from mom. He is healthy and fat and has great puppy breath and sharp teeth! His personality is puppy playfulness and trouble. He will be ready for adoption January 2017.





Cee-LoPH ID: #3213
Cee Lo is a 5-6 year old black male. He has been neutered and microchipped; he is current on his vaccination. He is heartworm positive and will have to go through treatment.

From Cee Lo's foster/manager: Ladies & Gentlemen, I am pleased to introduce the newest and greatest CEE LO PUG . Cee Lo joined the Pug Hearts group last week and will be appearing until he receives a permanent contract at a venue in the Greater Houston area. Cee Lo will be appearing at the upcoming PugHearts events so come on out to meet him and get his pawtograph.





ChablisPH ID: #3327
Chablis is a 5 year old fawn female who comes to us as a puppy mill rescue. She has now been spayed, microchipped and brought current on her vaccinations.

From Chablis' foster: Chablis is the sweetest, most loving little girl you will ever meet. Chablis is a 5 year old, fawn female, who is heart worm negative. Chablis has no major health issues but does have dry eyes which require daily drops. Her life completely changed when PugHearts rescued her from a back yard breeder. This little girl has no interest in treats or food, she just wants to be loved on and held. Chablis is a very docile little girl, but she does get very excited when she first sees you! Every day we see a bit more of her personality and I should mention that her tongue always hangs out. We are still working on potty training but she does very well with the crate. When we follow the schedule she has no problem going to the bathroom outside and not making a mess inside. Chablis is NOT an alpha female and would get along great with another pup. She is not food aggressive or toy aggressive. Honestly, all this baby wants is your love and attention. Now that she has finally found what it means to be loved she doesn't want to ever leave. :)





ChadPH ID: #4432
Meet new foster Chad. Owner surrender after his family was not able to keep him.

He is 14 months old; had a 6 month heartworm shot and vaccinations in January when he was 9 months old, and is a typical puppy ball of energy. He needs a neuter and couple of retained baby teeth removed, but I expect him to be healthy. What a cutie!





ChampPH ID: #1046
Champ is a fawn male. He was picked up by a local animal control facility with a bad cut on his right side, having difficulty walking. He was treated by our vet and has completely recovered.

From Champ's foster: I've had Champ for about 2 months. He had gotten so attached to his fosters who had nursed him back to health that they decided he needed a transition foster before his forever home. He is an awesome boy considering all he has gone through. He gets along great with all the other dogs here at his foster home. He sleeps in the bed, at his spot, sometimes digging under the covers. He has a great appetite, likes to go for walks and car rides. He doesn't mind when I go to work every day but he is always real excited when I get home. He is house broken and only seems to need to go twice a day, so he would not be a burden for those without a yard. He does not have any health issues left over from his injuries. He plays with toys some but is not obsessed with them. He is a very well-adjusted boy who would do well as an only dog or in addition to another pup or two. (He does chase Mr. Billy the cat, however.) He likes children he has met at the pug meets too.





ChampPH ID: #42
Meet Champ. Just look at that face! He is an adorable fawn male. He came to us with some skin issues that left his coat looking pretty sad. However, he has been getting medicated baths and his coat is now growing back in and as you can see he is looking quite handsome!

Champ came to us from a local animal shelter. He is current on his vaccinations and microchipped. He had tested moderately heartworm positive but has completed his treatment and is now clear. He is 2 years old, though everyone thinks he is a puppy because he is so active and playful. It's so nice to see that even though he has obviously had a pretty rough time of it, he still is a happy, friendly fellow who loves people.

ChancePH ID: #4704
Chance is a 7 year old male whose owner passed away. He is heartworm negative and a real love.

Hello friends!! Foster Chance here!! Its been a few days since I have posted, just wanted to let everyone know I am still looking for my Forever home!!! I am super sweet and loveable, I love kids and playing with my foster brothers, I am very verbal and will greet you with loving conversation when you come home to tell you I have missed you.

ChanningPH ID: #5284
Meet Channing. This gorgeous boy us joining the PugHearts family from the Rio Grande Valley.

From Channing's foster: Even though Channing (Teddy) was an owner turn in, he is happiest dude who lives life with gusto. Everything is an exciting adventure to him.

Time for a meal or snack? YES!!! Time to hang out and watch TV? YES!!! Time for a walk? YES!!! Time to play with toys or wrestle with the other guys? YES!!! This house trained, crate trained, bundle of energy and joy reminds us to live life to the fullest every day.





ChardonnayPH ID: #2119
Chardonnay is a fawn female. She is about 4 years old and is heartworm negative.

From Chardonnay's foster: We have had Chardonnay for a just a few days now but I can tell you she is one special pug! She loves to snuggle and be held more than anything but when she is ready to play - she goes full pull! She loves to take her stuffed toys and shake them up and then toss them in the air or engage is an epic battle of tug-o-war.

Her fur is baby soft and full of wrinkles. She will grunt non stop when she is tired but does not bark or whine when she wants something. She will sit patiently at your feet and then rolls over for a belly rub when you look at her.

She has had a rough life which has left her deaf and partially blind, but don't let that fool you, she is the sweetest most loving dog with a happy disposition and full of life attitude. She doesn't really care to be alone and would do really well with another dog or a stay at home family. This little girl is about 4-5 years old and a petite 20 pounds. My pictures don't do her justice as she has the prettiest little face.

Chardonnay will bring joy to your home if you are the lucky family who gets to adopt this beautiful little girl.





CharityPH ID: #945
Charity is a beautiful, smoky fawn female who is 3 years old. She is an owner surrender through no fault of her own; her owners claimed they no longer had time for her. She is healthy, but she was heartworm positive and has completed heartworm treatment. She has been spayed and is up to date on her shots.

It took a little time to get Charity out of her shell. Well, she is out. Big time. She is personality plus; she is loaded with spunk and loves to play. She loves to run and adores a game of chase. She loves to play with toys and will run from you if you try to get them. She is a champion snuggler and loves to sleep very close to me in the big bed. Charity is a guard dog at heart, chasing birds and squirrels from the yard and alerting me whenever the doorbell rings…even if it is on TV. She is a loving and sweet girl who is housebroken and will use a pee pad. She is extremely smart which results in her stirring up trouble; how many here can say they caught their pug up on the kitchen counter? One look from those big amber eyes and you just can’t stay mad at her. She likes dogs and cats and seems to love kids.

Charity is a great dog for any family and will make a wonderful companion.





CharlesPH ID: #457
Charles is an adorable black male. He comes to us from a local shelter. We believe he is between 8 to 10 years old. He is suffering from some itchy skin right now due to a case of sarcoptic mange. That is being treated and he should be clear soon. He is in otherwise good health and is heartworm negative. He has been brought current on his vaccinations, microchipped and neutered.

From Charles' foster: Charles (aka Charlie) is a sweet sweet boy! He is generally a very calm pug, but he has his playful moments. While Charlie has lost some vision, this does not slow him down one bit. He leads the way when we go on walks, he flies up and down the stairs, and he has no trouble finding a treat when it "drops" on the floor! Charlie prefers to sleep on his own bed and is completely house trained. He is a very smart boy and is also learning how to cuddle...although he does need some more practice!





CharlesPH ID: #5184
Charles was found in a wooded area running around on his own. Someone was able to finally catch him and called PugHearts to help him.

From Charles' foster: Charles is a 4 year old neutered awesome fawn pug. He has dry eye and has some vision issues He also is HW+ and will have treatment so it could be in the summer that he is available for adoption. He is sweet and handsome with good house manners. He is crate trained and trying to learn to sit in your lap to be loved on I can't believe I have to teach him that but it something he is not use to He gets along with our other dogs and is very laid back

He would be a great addition to the family and worth the wait so put in your application for this great boy!!!

CharliePH ID: #43
Charlie is a cute fawn male pug mix. We're not sure what he's mixed with but we figure since he's even part pug he's a keeper. He came to us from a local shelter where nobody claimed him and he was going to be put down soon. We couldn't let that happen so we took him in to find him a home. He appears to be about 1 year old. It doesn't look like anybody has been taking care of him because he has tested heartworm positive. We have started him on treatment. He has been brought up to date on vaccinations, neutered and microchipped. He is in otherwise excellent health.

Charlie is all puppy. He is full of energy and loves to play. He hasn't met a toy he didn't like and he has all the energy you would expect of a young guy. He gets along beautifully with other dogs as well as children. He is house and kennel trained. When he is not playing he loves to snuggle on the couch or in the bed.





CharliePH ID: #906
Charlie is a fawn male. He is an owner surrender through no fault of his own. We believe he is about 6 years old. He is neutered, and in good health except for dry eye which just needs daily moisturizing drops. He is heartworm negative. He is house trained, good with other dogs and knows basic commands. He loves plush toys and is a snuggler.

From Charlie's foster: Charlie is a sweet boy who just wants to be near us. He follows me wherever I go in the house and flops down at my feet. He likes to roam around the backyard and survey his kingdom. He has learned not to bark at the neighbor's dogs on the other side of the fence. Charlie likes to play with his stuffed animals. He loves to use them for a pillow, too. He has a very squishy, wrinkly face that looks really cute when he does that. We usually call him Charlie-bear 'cause he is so cute.

Charlie has perfect house manners. He has not had any accidents here. He loves to go in the car. He has visited my parents house and has stayed with others when we traveled. He does vey well on visits. He is cute and friendly to everyone he meets.

Note that Charlie does have dry eye and must have daily drops for the rest of his life. He does not mind the drops and sits very still each evening to get them. He is a good boy!





CharliePH ID: #2107
Charlie is a young fawn male found wandering the streets with no tags or microchip.

From Charlie's foster: Charlie is 2 years old and this is a pug that loves every minute of life. Charlie's favorite things to do are chew on his squeaky ball and wrestle with Foster Sam and Foster Rudy. He loves to be outside right now with the weather being so beautiful. He has had nose surgery to help his breathing, but he is still very flat faced, so he over heats easily and will need to be watched closely as our temperatures climb. He loves to clean everyone's ears and eyes after they come in from playing; I think he is even a little OCD about it. He gets along with cats great because he rarely pays any attention to them. Charlie has a crazy amount of energy so he would do best if he had a playmate or two. We are working on manners and waiting our turn during treat time but I know he will master it soon. "Char Char" has one of the cutest nose wrinkles and softest coats. He had a couple marking incidents when he first came to live with us but has not had any accidents since and he enjoys his crate. He loves to cuddle and rest his head on you. He is a snorer but it is a really cute snore.

Charlotte is a small Pug Mix and we estimate her age to be around 5 years. She was rescued from a shelter in the Houston area.

Charlotte is current on all her shots including Rabies and Bordetella. She is also spayed and heart-worm negative.

Very much an energetic Dog but Charlotte is very gentle and cuddly too. She shows all the signs of being very well housebroken and the use of a doggy door is something that she is very comfortable with.

Charlotte shows no problems with living with other dogs and loves to play chase me and ball games.





CharmingPH ID: #5034
Yes, as in Prince Charming. This boy is a royal gem.

Just look at that face. Charming is a young male that was surrendered to a local shelter.

From Charming's foster: There are no words to describe Charming. He is the elusive perfect pug that a rescue never gets. He was an owner surrender to CAPS and when I walked in to pick him up I couldn’t believe my eyes. First of all he’s black, a beautiful blue black color, his head is huge, the wrinkle from his nose role is like the Grand Canyon (so it must be cleaned daily) and his face is striking.

Charming is 1 ½ years old, his birthday is January 13, 2015, he is an owner surrender that came with his papers and vet records. He isn’t a typical puppy. While he does like to play and have his little stuffed toys that he carries around in his mouth, he is pretty laid back. He will just hang out at night while I watch TV. He is crate trained. He will be neutered soon so his marking will improve in the next couple of weeks.

He will not be with Pughearts long.





ChasePH ID: #4357
Chase- 9 yr old male, surrendered by owner who could no longer care for him.

From Chase's foster: Chase is very laid back well behaved boy. He is house trained, and he has free roam of the house when we are gone. Occasionally he will play with toys, but his favorite activity is cuddling up with another dog. He gets along well with dogs and cats.

Chaucer is a fawn male. He is about 4 months old. He has a genetically deformed foot.





ChellyPH ID: #46
Chelly is a beautiful fawn female pug. She was found wandering the streets and was taken in by a good Samaritan who placed ads looking for her owner. After no response, we were contacted to take her in and find her a suitable home.

Chelly is estimated to be about 1 1/2 years old with quite a bit of puppy still in her. She is very active and playful. She very much enjoys toys and rawhides! She is housebroken and gets on well with other dogs. She has just discovered what a cat is though she doesn't seem to understand what they are for!

Chelly is now microchipped and up to date on her vaccinations. She will be spayed within a few days. She has no known medical issues. She loves to run and play, but she also is a very good snuggler. She enjoys sleeping in a human bed so she can snuggle during the night.

Chelly is well behaved and learning to go for walks on a lead. She will make a fantastic companion for some lucky pug lover.





ChelseaPH ID: #4780
Chelsea is a young female that was surrendered to PugHearts after she was not tolerant of the children in the household.

She is already spayed and heartworm negative.





CherPH ID: #2127
Cher is a fawn female. She is 6 years old and an owner surrender with another pug named Sonny.

From Cher's foster: Cher is a happy, fun-loving gal! She loves to play with her toys and chew Nyla Bones. She is a quick learner, who took one week to learn what "Kennel" meant in her foster home. One quick mention of "Kennel" and she runs right into the dog room into her kennel and eagerly awaits a treat! She loves to take her evening walks and is a good walker. Overall, she is just a very happy, low-maintenance girl. She loves to snuggle and get belly rubs. She loves everyone and all the other dogs! Cher is heartworm positive and will have to go through treatment before she can go to her forever home. She and Sonny (as is the Hollywood trend) have separated and will not need to be adopted together.





ChesterPH ID: #3189
Chester is a fawn male. He is about 5 or 6 years old. He is heartworm positive and will begin treatment shortly. He comes to us from out of state. Chester was born with an underdeveloped eye and has limited vision in the other, causing him significant vision impairment. Chester is so easy going. He tends to be timid, probably because of his impaired vision. He is reluctant to climb the stairs or jump on or off furniture. We just carry him or help him up or down. He snores loudly, but will sleep with you for as long as you want. He is a good eater, but doesn't beg you for food. He gets along great with our 3 dogs and pretty much just keeps to himself. He's a great head tilter, gentle, and he tolerates wearing a belly band (he has tried to mark a few times). The cutest thing about him physically is his super curly tail and the way his butt wiggles almost independently from the rest of his body. He would be a fantastic addition to any home.





ChevyPH ID: #985
Chevy is a fawn male. He comes to us after his owner turned him into an animal control facility. He is 8 years old. He appears to be in good health; he is heartworm negative. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations. It appears he has not had a very good life before now as he is very timid and scared. He is with a fantastic foster who will work on making him feel safe and loved so that his true personality can shine through. We will post updates as he comes out of his shell.

From Chevy's foster: We’re happy to say Chevy is now out of his shell. All it took was love and time. Chevy is a very sweet boy. He follows us around, waits for us to sit then moves in for the cuddle. He’s very playful. He’s the first Pug we’ve had that will jump into the kiddie pool and play in the water. It’s very cute to watch. He loves toys, sometimes too much but we’re working on the sharing. He’s great with other dogs both big and small. He’s an affectionate little man that just needs someone to love him.





ChewyPH ID: #4407
If you are seeking out a perfect, 8-year-old, 16lb, well-mannered, full of personality, plays well with others, fun-loving black male pug who is potty-trained, already figured out the doggy door, AND knows a trick or two.....let me introduce you to Foster Chewy! Chewy is an owner surrender and is what I call a "Velcro Pug"! He loves nothing more than being right next to (and preferably on) his owner! He is very well-behaved and knows how to "sit" for a treat. Chewy loves playing with our two boys and three other dogs and does great in the car! He is crate-trained and walks very well on a leash, too. Chewy doesn't have any known health issues and came to Pughearts HW negative! He loves to sleep on the bed at night with his family but is quite content sleeping in his doggy bed as well. Even though he's 8, we all agree that he acts more like a pug half his age!

Cheyenne is a young fawn female from Louisiana.






Chi ChiPH ID: #48
Chi Chi is a fawn female who is a little over a year old. She is current on all of her vaccinations and has been spayed. She is negative for heartworms and is on preventative.

Chi Chi is a very active, playful young lady who gets on well with other dogs. She is housebroken, though she has had a history of 'marking' when she has not received enough attention. Of course she still has a lot of puppy in her and needs some training. She also could use some stability, as she has been moved around quite a bit in her young life.





ChiarraPH ID: #4320
Chiarra is a female brindle bug. She is 3 years old. She is heartworm negative and in good health. She is scheduled to be spayed.

From Chiarra's foster: Chiarra has the kind of expressive face that makes you look twice - and then stare for a while. I think she must have used it to her advantage while in Beaumont Animal Control because she had a lot of people wishing her well when we drove out of there and into her new happy PugHearts life! Such a fabulous little car rider during that road trip, and so far life has been good in Houston... New PH brother and sister who are teaching her the good-girl ways of pottying outside, and going up and down the stairs, and preferably chewing on kongs or rope toys vs. tables or books. She seems to be getting acclimated to answering to the name Betty now. Her human dad assures her that it is a snowboarder term of respect/admiration for a pretty girl; like "She's such a Betty!" And, indeed, she is!!





ChickpeaPH ID: #4689
Chickpea and her siblings were surrendered to PH when their mom could no longer nurse them. They were born April 4, 2015. They are not pug, but a mix of peke/chi/yorkie. Chicky Chicky Chickpea is the most feisty, first one out of the gate, playful and cuddly. She loves to fight with her siblings and play with toys.

ChicoPH ID: #5377
Chico is a 3 year odl heartworm negative pug mix. We think he is a Chug (chihuahua and pug mix).

He needs a bit of a diet, as the vet feels he is 3 pounds overweight.

Chico came to us from San Antonio. He is a bit fluffy, but the more adorable little sausage roll ever. He was shy at first. Then his personality came out in full force. He smiles all the time, is playful, loves his people, snuggly, and give kisses. He is young about 3 or 4 years, HW negative, current on his vaccinations and neutered already. This little guy stole our hearts and will do the same to yours.





ChinaPH ID: #4416
China is a black female, heartworm positive, already spayed.

From China (with some help from her foster): Hello, I am Little China Doll and I am a cutie! I have a wonderful appetite. I am also a little cuddle bug at night and I do not shed as much as the other pugs in the house. I love to be bathed! I run and dash around in the tub like a baby seal! I have a spunky personality with a ton of energy. I am heartworm positive-severe but I am using my summer vacation to recuperate. I will be very ready for my forever home soon after that. I am also using this time to work on some behaviors. I have patient foster parents, but they have to be consistent and firm with bathroom behaviors. I am working on going "outside potty." I have a mid day pet sitter that helps with this also. In spite of a little orthodontia problem, my smile is like a huge sunflower popping out on a summer day. It just makes everyone feel better. I love my foster mommy and the other pugs in the house, but at times, I require a little "time out!" Please wait for me to get well and prepare your heart for the best ever surprise! (I know how to shake!)

Special Notes

China has a pending adoption following her heartworm treatment





ChinaPH ID: #47
China is a sweet fawn female. She is 10 years old. She was an owner surrender through no fault of her own. Though her eyesight is severely limited, she does appear to see shapes and light.

China has come a long way in the year we've had her. Now an 11 year old beauty - she enjoys her days taking naps, strolls around the yard in the sun, and more naps. Even though she has very little vision & hearing - it doesn't stop her from enjoying a sunny day or a good belly rub. She knows her way around the house and yard, and she will certainly let you know when she wants something! She's the Queen of our Pug Palace! Thanks to PugHearts, China is getting loved like she's always deserved to be!





ChipPH ID: #3264
Chip is a black male. He is 8 or 9 years old. He is heartworm negative. He has been neutered, microchipped and brought current on his vaccinations.

From Chip's foster: Introducing Chip, my new foster. He just got a bath and is happy to be out of the kennel. He had a large mass removed from his head that's why there is a patch there from the surgery, nothing to worry about. He is the most chill, calm, relaxed pug I have ever been around! He does not even go all crazy whenever it is feeding time, unbelievable! He has yet to have any "accidents" inside my home. Chip does have dry eye and will have to have one drop in each eye everyday for life. Chip is such a sweet boy (great with children) and who ever ends up adopting him is going to be a very lucky family! Glad Chip is here and happy to let him stay at my house until we find him a furever home!





ChipPH ID: #5036
Chip is a 3 yr old heartworm negative Boston Terrier/Pug mix.

From Chip's foster: Chip is a healthy 3 year old Boston Terrier/Pug mix who came to us as an owner surrender because his owner moved out of the country. He has a chill temperament and gets along great with other dogs and the cat. He is housetrained so no need to crate while you’re gone. For 3 years old Chip is a really calm dog. He specializes in sleeping under the covers and curled up on the couch. If you’re looking for a young dog with an old soul then Chip is your man!





ChloePH ID: #4436
Meet Chloe! This small, beautiful girl is just two years old and was surrendered by her owner through no fault of her own. She is a very energetic beauty who loves to explore, and loves to cuddle. She doesn't mind a crate, is potty trained except for a few accidents she had when adjusting to her new surroundings/schedule, and loves to play, lounge on the couch, and sleep in the bed.

She seemed a bit skittish around the other pugs the first day, perhaps a bit nervous, but now she runs around and plays with the other dogs. She is a smart girl. She recognizes her name and has figured out her surroundings with ease. She sleeps on the bed, she curls up next to me and doesn't move the entire night. Some days she is content to curl up on my lap or next to me wherever I am sitting. When I get up, she follows me from room to room. She is a very attentive little girl.

She has had her vaccinations, is chipped and spayed, and is heartworm negative. This sweet little girl is going to make someone or some family very happy!






ChloePH ID: #966
Chloe fawn female. She has a beautiful coat and big chocolate eyes with a cute tongue that sticks out.

From Chloe's foster: Chloe is a six year old fawn female. While a bit of an alpha female, she is just full of personality. She enjoys constant companionship, burrowing in blankets, and going nuts outside chasing squirrels and anything else that moves. She's completely house trained and kennel trained although I'm sure she would prefer sleeping with her humans. She is very healthy and is looking for her new family. And yes, that magnificent tongue is like that all the time (and no its not slobbery)!





ChloePH ID: #451
Chloe is a fawn female. She is about 5 years old. She comes to us from a local shelter. She is heartworm positive. She has not been spayed but will be prior to adoption. She is current on vaccinations and has been microchipped.

From Chloe's foster: Chloe is really something else. She has definitely not been treated as a Pug should be treated. The day she came home she was shaking so bad that it broke my heart. I tried to hold her and talk to her to let her know that she wouldn't be hurt but that didn't work, she just shook harder. She has started coming around now and will let me hold her for a few minutes before she gets so scared. But the best part is that she's starting to jump on me to play while we're sitting on the couch. She will soon not remember whatever it was that happened to her previously and will be a happy girl forever more.

Chloe has a different look. She's really quite small (13 pounds) but it appears that her nutrition has not been the best and her legs are bowed out. She also has a tongue that is always hanging out (dental hygiene wasn't the best either). If you put all these little quirks together you have an awesomely cute Pug! She is really has a beautiful face and the tongue hanging out just adds another cuteness factor.

She will need to have someone teach her how to behave in the house. I just love to watch one come in that has never seen a TV before. Chloe sat on the couch for the longest time cocking her head from side to side trying to figure out what it was. She is definitely not housebroken so that is priority #1! With a little time and a lot of patience she will be a wonderful companion for someone.

Chow MingPH ID: #2110
Introducing the stunning pale apricot gentleman Chow Ming. Chow (as we call him) is a wonderful, heartworm negative male. He was surrendered to us after his owner become unable to care for him any longer. Many of you may think he looks familiar. This because his sister was also with us not too long ago. (May Ling). Chow is 7 years old, playful and very connected to his people. He is animated and his facial expressions are adorable. Chow is the perfect mix of all the best things about a pug.





ChristinePH ID: #4969
Full Description Coming Soon!






ChristyPH ID: #5212
Christy is a fawn female pug mix.

From Christy's foster: She's timid at first & runs away, but once she warms up to the situation, she snuggles & plays. House & crate trained, but not leash trained & needs work with her commands. She's young & needs to be spayed, but what a cutie!





Chubby CheckersPH ID: #618
Chubby Checkers is a fawn male. We believe he is about 8 years old. He comes to us from a local animal control facility. He is has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations. He is heartworm negative. He is a "fluffy" fellow who could stand to lose a bit of weight. He is also suffering from some arthritic knees (which are probably worse due to him being overweight.) He is now on a diet to help him lose a little weight.

From Chubby's foster: Chubby is an extremely sweet boy ready for his forever home. ‘Chubby’ came to us extremely overweight—with some dieting and a lot of exercise he has blossomed into a great companion! Chubby can be very active, or a happy lazy lap dog. He gets along well with large and small dogs, cats and LOVES children. He will do well with other dogs or by himself. We have put Chubby on a schedule and as long as he is kept on his schedule he has not have any accidents in the house—(Is housebroken). Chubbys’ favorite activities include TV watching and car rides. His love of ‘traveling’ has enabled him to experience dog parks and horse barns (both of which he has handled with grace)! He is a well-rounded boy ready for a family of his own to love and play with.





ChuckPH ID: #282
Chuck is a 5 year old black male. He was found in the middle of a road and turned into us. He has been brought current on his vaccinations and microchipped. He has been neutered.

From Chuck's Foster Mom: This boy is so special. He's very loving and super attentive. He's learned to sit and stay. He's also learned to talk! He's not a cuddler by snuggly standards, but he does need to sit next to me. Sometimes he stretches out to put his chin on my lap, or a paw across my legs. He's definitely housebroken. He is a bed sleeper. He has to get under the covers and curl up next to me. He's really a momma's boy. He probably was weened too early, as he's prone to suckle. He also has a bit of abandonment issues. If we're gone for longer than a few hours he starts tearing up toys. I think he would do best with another dog. He doesn't seem to care about chasing the cats around here, or even squirrels.





ChuckPH ID: #4944
Chuck is a young fawn male. He was found wandering alone. He seems to have little to no vision.

He is being evaluated by the vet and we will update soon.

From Chuck's Foster: Chuck is a 2 yr old, blind, fawn male. Chuck came into PugHearts extremely underweight and is having to gain weight before he can be neutered. He also has a flea allergy that is being treated and should be adoptable in a few weeks.

Chuck is a very active young pug. He’ll follow you around and enjoys being held. He goes all over my back yard when it’s time to go outside. He is learning the layout of the house and yard and will soon move a lot faster. He is getting along well with the grumble. I don’t have any young children but don’t anticipate any problems there.

Blind pugs are no problem to adopt. They adapt to their new environment very quickly. With help, they can learn stairs. You just need to keep them on a short lead next to you when you walk so that you can make them aware of what’s coming up – curbs, etc. This little guy is so lovable that it’s easy to forget that he can’t see. Please consider making room in your family for Chuck.






ChuckPH ID: #4712
Chuck is a young male that came to us as an owner surrender.





ChuckyPH ID: #1025
Chucky is a 2-4 year old, HW negative, neutered black male. I'll start off by saying he is a very well behaved Pug. He is potty trained, has no aggression issues and just wants to give and receive some love. He loves to play and stands up on you when he is really excited. We have tried to keep Chucky calm because he is having some respiratory issues. The vet said he has a collapsed trachea and it may cause him to cough. He is currently coughing on and off because of a upper respiratory infection. He is on meds. and making great progress. Chucky would make a great addition to a Pug or non-Pug family. I can't count how many times I catch myself saying, "wow Chucky is a good boy". Maybe he can be your good boy one day.





ChurchillPH ID: #3278
Churchill is a fawn male. He is about 4-5 years old. He is heartworm negative. He has been neutered, microchipped and brought current on his vaccinations.

From Churchill's foster: Churchill is a very sweet boy. He has a playful side, but he prefers to cuddle. He likes to climb up on my lap and get as close to me as possible and fall asleep. He is potty trained, from the moment he walked into my house he never even marked once, such a good boy. He is crate trained as well. He would make a wonderful addition to anyone's home.





CiscoPH ID: #804
Cisco is a black male. He is a little guy - only 5 months old. He is heartworm negative and in good health. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.





ClairePH ID: #4468
Claire is a 3 year old female found wandering. She is severe heartworm positive and will be with us for a while during her heartworm treatment.

From Claire's foster: Beautiful things come in small packages. This girl is a little diamond.

Meet, Claire Belle. She is a petite fawn beauty who is about three years old and only weighs about 14 pounds. She is an energetic girl who loves to play with toys, other dogs, and her fosters. She is housebroken except for a few accidents when she first was learning her surroundings. She sleeps in the bed and loves to curl up next to you. She is crate trained and appears to be a fast learner.

Claire has had all of her vaccinations, is scheduled to be spayed in early September, and has been tested as heartworm positive. She will be going through her treatment in the coming months. It will be a few months until she is ready for adoption.

This pug princess will make someone very happy. She is such a joy to be around.





ClairePH ID: #5326

ClarencePH ID: #2148
Clarence is a fawn male. He is 7 years old. He is an owner surrender. He is in good health; he is heartworm negative. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From Clarence's foster: Clarence is around 7 years old and is HW-. He and his mom, Heidi, are owner surrender through no fault of their own. Clarence is affectionately nicknamed “Meatball” and “Chunky Monkey”. He is sweet, laid back and simply lovable. He loves to cuddle and have his chest scratched but he is so fluffy you can’t help but rub him all over. He looks forward to his morning walks but hates that it is starting to get really hot out and he can’t stay out for long as long as he wants. He loves to play with toys but he is not really into playing with other dogs; he’s only interested in playing with humans. He is not aggressive and he gets along great with the crew, and that’s including the cats. Clarence is crate and house trained, and he scratches at the door when he wants to go out. If you are ready to open your home, and your heart, then consider this Hunka Hunka Love Muffin!





ClaribelPH ID: #445
Claribel is a black female. She is 4 years old. She is in good health and is heartworm negative. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on her vaccinations.

From Claribel's foster: Claribel is one sweet girl. She has not had any problems becoming a loved pet, I think she knows the puppy machine days are behind her. She is in really good health, her only issue is dry eye and it isn't really that bad she needs to have drops put in her eyes every day and she's good to go. Her skin had issues with the fleas so she has some scabs in her fur but when the spay stitches are removed and she can have a bath they will be gone. Her coat looks like satin, it's very pretty!

Claribel's one goal in life is to be held and loved. A diet is in her future so she is a lap full right now but when she trims down she'll be a normal sized pug. She loves to have her belly rubbed, she goes to the door with all the others to go outside but before she goes she rolls over to have a belly rub first! She will be laying on my lap and all of a sudden she will turn her head and jump up to give me a really quick lick on the face and then lay right back down like she hasn't moved, she seems to be showing affection. She really is something. Her house habits are exceptional, she's been with me for awhile and hasn't done anything rude yet.

Claribel is an absolute love and would make anyone a great additon to the family. I think if she had the choice she would choose to be in a home where she is the center of attention, but she does get on well with other pugs so a furry brother/sister would also be fine.





ClarkPH ID: #4413
Clark is a black male. He is about 8 years old. He was hit by a car and brought in by a kind lady that would not leave him in the street alone.

From Clark's foster: Clark is a handsome 8 year old boy who is as perfect a pug as one could be! He's perfectly house mannered, gets along fabulously with other dogs, he even puts up with the somewhat annoying attention of a 6 month old puppy! He loves to be near his humans but doesn't need to be glued by your side....just being near is comforting to him. He doesn't care for a crate, but he doesn't really need one since he's housebroken and happy to just chill on a dog bed! This guy would make an easy addition to any family!





ClarkPH ID: #4474
Clark is the black male. He is heartworm negative.

Lois and Clark came to us together. They are a bonded pair and will have to be adopted together.





ClaudePH ID: #1101
Claude is a fawn male. He is about 2 years old. He is heartworm negative. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From Claude's foster: Claude is a character. He is always making me laugh. He likes to climb into closets and get comfy and walk on end tables or climb on top of my head when I'm trying to rest on the couch. When he's not being goofy, he loves to cuddle, he likes to lay on top of me putting his head in my neck. I think of this guy as my little Mr. Personality, he's not really high energy or high maintenance, he's just silly. He's potty trained, uses the dog door and if he's needs to be he doesn't have a problem being crated. Claude is young (2 yrs old), healthy and ready for his forever family.





ClausPH ID: #4578
Claus is a squishy older guy that was found wandering all alone. Claus had dry eye, is heartworm negative and is already neutered.

From Claus' foster: Claus is a 8-9 year old fawn male who was found by a good Samaritan sitting in a road median just before Christmas. He may have been dumped, since no one came looking for him. This boy had a good home at one time, since he is heartworm negative and already neutered. Claus has one of the thickest, healthiest, most dense coats ever encountered on a pug. It makes him look larger than his 23 lbs and feel incredibly squishy. Petting him is a sensory experience for both parties. Claus has severe dry eye and some significant vision loss because of it; his hearing is not great, either. Neither sensory limitation seems to impair him significantly; he gets around remarkably well! He figured out the lay of the house and how to get up and down stairs to the yard independently in a very short time. He follows his human around the house and is very patient when his eye drops and cleaning are tended to. He won’t get up on the furniture on his own, but will lie calmly getting petted if lifted up. He jumps down unassisted and finds a comfy dog bed on his own. All the other dogs in his foster home accepted him immediately, and he is no trouble at all. Anyone want a squishy year-round Santa in their home? Claus will fit the bill.





ClayPH ID: #5295
Clay is a young man that comes to PugHearts looking for a forever family.

Clay is a young fawn male with the cutest puppy attitude. He is a quick learner; within 2 days was using the doggy door. He still needs some potty training but sure will learn quickly. He enjoys the puppy life: running, playing, chewing. Loves playing with other pugs and humans. Sleeps well at the foot of your bed, not a big fan of the crate. He can be food aggressive so that is the time he tolerates the crate....to eat! Has a great appetite. Loves to be carried and gives kisses.





ClaytonPH ID: #4844
Clayton is a 1 yr old male.

He came to PugHearts with his sister Peyton.

He is heartworm negative and looking for a family that will love both of them.






ClementinePH ID: #49

Full description coming soon!






CleopatraPH ID: #835
Cleopatra (Cleo) is a totally amazing lady! I can’t even begin to guess how many litters of puppies she has had, my guess is she had one every time she was in season her whole life. And the mange she had was pretty bad - she still hasn’t grown all her hair back. But Cleo is a true pug, she has the best outlook on life that she can have. She is very happy, she loves attention, she is very devoted to her human, she is an absolute clown, she is extremely loving, the list can go on forever. I don’t know how she came out of the life she had with such an outstanding personality but she sure did. She makes me laugh and smile just by looking at her. She soon discovered toys and seems to have developed quite an attachment to stuffed ones.

She is really good with the other fosters. She has a tendency to mother them, she does quite a bit of cleaning the ears and face of her favorites. So I guess she was also a good mother, which doesn’t surprise me in the least. It took her awhile to figure out how to get on the couch but once she did she has turned into a couch/lap potato! Cleo loves to be held or just lay close to me in the evenings. Probably one of the most surprising things about her is she has never gone to the bathroom in the house. When she first came she did go in her crate, I guess that was where she was used to going her whole life. But since she’s been with me she seems to have figured out that she can potty outside and her blanket isn’t all wet and stinky during the day. She also may have put two and two together and figured out that if she didn’t pee in her crate I didn’t give her a bath all the time! She really is quite an amazing and intelligent pug.

Cleo has had a pretty rough life but you would never know it by her actions. She does bear the results of being a mother many times over and she will always have larger than normal breasts. Over time all her physical issues will resolve themselves. The most important thing is that Cleopatra has absolutely no mental or behavioral issues that will need attention. She is an absolutely fantastic girl and she will give her new family more love than they can ever imagine.





CliffordPH ID: #50
Clifford is a handsome fawn male. We estimate he is about 4 years old.

Clifford was found wandering the streets without a collar or microchip. A Good Samaritan tried to find his owners, but nobody came forward to claim him so we were called to find him a new home. He has now been microchipped and brought up to date on his vaccinations. He has been neutered and is in excellent health.

Clifford is a very social, friendly pug. He is very laid back and easygoing and seems to get along with everyone. He's also a very good cuddler who loves to be held and petted. He thoroughly enjoys sleeping in a human bed at night and will make some lucky person a very good personal heater this winter! He is also very well behaved and is housebroken. He is going to make someone a fantastic companion. This beautiful boy is just waiting for his new family to find him and never let him go.

PLEASE NOTE: Clifford and Bridget are a bonded pair and as such will only be adopted out together.





ClovisPH ID: #4926
Clovis is a 4-5 yr old fawn male.

He comes to us HW positive and dealing with some bad skin issues.

He is receiving care from the vet and we will update soon.

From Clovis' foster: Introducing sweet and savory Clovis. Although heartworms are always heartbreaking, He has sailed through heart worm treatment without even a moment of worry. His treatment plan has provided us with the opportunity to know and love him so very much. He has a loving and sweet personality that will fit into any family. I have trusted him with small children and other dogs. He loves to sleep on his back on a dog bed in the master bedroom, but will gladly accept an invitation to the bed. He also loves time on the patio. He is potty trained and crate trained. His savory side includes the fact that he can be a little demanding about belly rubs. When he wants his belly rubbed, he shamelessly cuddles up to you, rolls over on his back and moans for you to get that rub on. He does require daily eye drops for dry eye. Please please do not hesitate to claim this little boy. He is a precious pug with a huge desire to love those around him.





ClydePH ID: #4774
Clyde is a 6-7 year old male. He is already neutered. We will update as we know more.

From Clyde's foster: Clyde is a really sweet boy with really good manners. The vet estimate he is about 6 years old. He does well being in crate during the day, but he definitely prefer to snuggle with you whenever he can. He is HW negative. He is currently dealing with a little ears infection that is already under treatment. This boy loves being around people. He is so gentle and when you have treat in your hand, he'd dance for it. He was a bit underweight when we got him, but he's slowly gaining weight. Most of the time he gets along well with our other dogs, except when it comes to his chewing toy. He tends to get a bit over protective over his toy. We are working on teaching him to share. If you choose this boy, be prepare for a lifetime of love. You could already see from the way he behaves that he is loving, loyal and sweet.






ClydePH ID: #315
Clyde is a fawn male. He is 9 years old. He was apparently used for breeding, so he has not known what is means to be somebody's pet. As he has not been cared for properly he has tested heartworm positive. He will begin treatment shortly. He has now been neutered, microchipped and brought current on his vaccinations. He is a sweet little guy who gets on well with other dogs and is not dominant. We are looking forward to helping him find that perfect family for him to live out the rest of his days as a pampered pet.

CocoPH ID: #4657
Coco is a 1 year old female, she is heartworm positive and scheduled for her spay.

CoCo has a pending adoption

Update: Heartworm treatment has now been completed!





Coco PuffPH ID: #1030
Coco Puff is a female brindle pug mix. She is about 1 1/2 years old. She was found wandering the streets with no tags or microchip. She is in good health; she is heartworm negative. She has been spayed, microchipped and brought current on her vaccinations.

From Coco Puff's foster: she’s full of energy. After she’s done playing she does love to cuddle. She’ll sleep right up against you all night and will stay in bed as long as you want the next morning. She’s extremely loving and just a “no” is all she needs for discipline. She’s tiny and can almost fit in your pocket. She has learned how to use a doggy door and her house training is coming along. If you’re looking for a higher energy Pug that loves to cuddle this is your girl!





CodyPH ID: #777
Cody is a fawn male. He is heartworm negative and in good health. He has been neutered, microchipped and brought current on his vaccinations.





CodyPH ID: #51
Cody is a 1 1/2 - 2 year old male who has been neutered and is up to date on his shots. He was found wandering the streets before a Good Samaritan found him and alerted us.

He is such a sweet and gentle soul and loves to snuggle in your arms and lap. He also can be quite playful, but prefers to cuddle. He will follow you around to see what you're up to - his foster mom refers to him as her 'shadow.'

We had believed at first that Cody was in good health except for being a bit too thin and having an entropion (inward 'rolling') left lower eyelid. During his pre-op examination at the Vet, it was discovered that Cody is suffering from a liver shunt. This explains why he is so tiny and was not gaining weight. Unfortunately, this is a very serious condition. Untreated it is fatal. At present he has been started on medication. While this will not cure him, it will make his quality of life better. The only way to correct his liver shunt is through surgery. The first of several surgeries would cost approximately $3000. Due to the large amount of money needed, we will not be holding a 'ChipIn' for the surgeries. However, we would gratefully accept any donations to cover the cost of Cody's ongoing medications.

Due to Cody's ongoing medical needs, he is now considered a 'Special Needs' adoption. Adoption will only be considered for somebody who has the ability to give Cody the treatment he needs.

GREAT NEWS! Cody has responded well enough to his liver medications that he was able to undergo corrective surgery for his eyelid! Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible. Because of you, Cody will no longer need daily ointment and have the constant irritation to his eye.





CodyPH ID: #4981
Cody is a 3 yr old fawn male. He comes to PugHearts from the Rio Grande valley. Cody is heartworm positive and will have to go through heartworm treatment prior to adoption.

From Cody's foster: Cody is an active 2-3 year old male pug. He has a beautiful disposition and gorgeous coloring. His right leg does have a floating patella so it looks like at times he stepped on something but he is just putting his knee back into place. This does not stop him from running with the other dogs or climbing stairs. He is not the aggressive type; he's a lover not a fighter. He loves playing with squeaky toys and playing tug of war with them. He also loves just lying beside you on the sofa. He has a very healthy appetite. Loves to run into the garage and when he is not ready to come in will go under the car.





ColbyPH ID: #3260
Colby is a 12-year old fawn male who was surrendered to us when his owners who have had him since puppyhood were faced with the choice of continuing to keep him outside or put him down. Thank goodness they called PugHearts instead. He is blind, hard of hearing, but gets around independently very well. He’s heartworm negative, has been neutered, microchipped, and brought up to date on his vaccinations. Colby is a cuddly old guy who cries only when he finds himself alone. Gets along well with other dogs, and is great at cuddling in bed.





ColePH ID: #52
Cole is a sweet black male. He is 2 years old. Cole originally came from a breeder's facility but has been staying with a Good Samaritan who decided we could take the best care of him. It doesn't look like he has had a very good life so far. He is pretty skinny for a pug and has an injured eye. We don't know yet the extent of his eye injury but we have started him on medications to soothe the irritation and help him feel better. He is severely heartworm positive and was also suffering from intestinal worms and a flea infestation. Now that he has been cleared of the intestinal worms and fleas, he will begin his heartworm treatment.

Cole is a very sweet boy who seems to understand that we want to help him. He is already feeling 100 times better and that is evident by his big goofy grin! Why, he's even allowing his foster Mom to dress him up with a scarf - so obviously he's a pretty easy-going fella.





CollinPH ID: #4678
Collin is an 8 year old male that was found wandering all alone and barking at the larger dogs.

He was taken in by a nice person to keep him safe.

Collin is heartworm negative and will be neutered and have a dental.

From Collin's foster: Collin is a sweet little guy. He’s not very big for a male and he’s very loving. He is HW negative and has quite the personality. He is a little gimped up in the back legs but he gets around without any issues whatsoever. He probably shouldn’t go to a home that has stairs but that would be his only restriction. He’s very well behaved in the house. Collin doesn't hold his poop well, so he has accidents. He does great with a doggie door, and will alert you when he needs to go outside to urinate, if a doggie door is not available. He also loves to walk around in the yard if you have a safe fenced area for him to roam a bit. What's better than sitting outside having coffee or tea and watching your this guy enjoy a bit of heaven?

He’s about 8ish and still seems to have quite a bit of puppy in him. Collin is quick to learn, most recently, he has learned to "bow" for treats and food, and understands "lay down". He loves to play with toys but he also likes to just hang out. He is a velcro and truly loves to sit/sleep next to you on the couch or in the chair. I don’t think Collin had a very good life up to the point he joined Pughearts but that has all changed. He’s quite happy to be loved and cared for.

If you have a bit of patience and can give Collin a new lease on life, please submit an application now!





ColonelPH ID: #524

From Colt's foster: Colt is about 3 or 4 years old, but acts like a puppy. He is potty trained, but does try to mark sometimes. He takes well to training and gets along with other dogs. He was found wondering in a park, with nothing but skin and bones. Once he chooses his person he will follow them to the ends of the earth. He does well with children and is very socialable. He is in need of an owner that loves to play and have fun!





ComedyPH ID: #4882
Comedy (aka Dee) - Black Female 5 Likes to put head in your chest when you pick her up like she is giving you a hug.





CometPH ID: #5126
Comet is a 2 yr. old male that was found hiding behind a dumpster in the cold. He is heartworm negative, but was full of intestinal parasites (hook worms and whip worms) and fleas.

He was so covered in fleas that his red blood cell count was dangerously low. He spent some time with the vet and we treated the old ulcers in his eyes, the intestinal parasites and finished removing all of the fleas on his poor body.

Comet is now doing well and is FULL of energy and happiness.

He is gaining weight well and learning to be an inside pet.

He is scheduled for a neuter soon.





ConnerPH ID: #4450
Owner surrender 7 yr old male "Connor" owner said was recently vetted, is current on his Trifexis and shots, including Bordatella. He just had a dental and is microchipped.

From Conner's foster: He is 7 years old, owner surrender. He gets along with dogs, cats and did not even pay attention to my parrot, he is very, very loving, sleeps in bed with us.....a little food protective, but around my house with dogs ranging from 5 lbs- 120 lbs you have to be a little protective.

He has learned to sit and wait for command to start eating (I do that with all my dogs cause like I said a couple are huge). He was a huge piglet and inhaled his food and was so desperate to get to it first few times it went all over the place.

He learned how to maneuver stairs with no problems in just a couple of days, does not really like toys but loves to be in someone's lap. Other than that he is beautiful, loves treats, healthy, loving, well mannered and just a joy to be around.






ConniePH ID: #5127
Connie is a 5 yr old female that comes to PugHearts with significant skin infections and yeast overgrowth.

She is (sadly) heartworm positive.

From Connie's foster: Connie is a larger pug, about 20 pounds, but she requires a bigger body to contain all of her HUGE PERSONALITY!!!! She is 5 years old and exceptionally pretty, a very light fawn color and has a tail as close to perfect as I have seen. Connie is very boisterous and sometimes acts like a bull in a china shop. She isn’t aware that she’s on the bigger scale and runs into things, etc. I don’t think she would be good with younger children (those that aren’t steady on their feet yet) because she would probably knock them over because she loves kids so much. Connie is one of the most fun pugs I have ever fostered, she is totally engaged in everything that goes on.

Connie is HW+ and starts her treatment on 3/20 so she will be available to adopt at the end of April. Her skin has cleared up and her fur has filled in nicely. She does have dry eye and requires eye drops. If you are looking for a pug that is intelligent and active this girl was made to order. She does like to be loved and will sit on my lap for quite some time (usually until I get up). Connie is an all-around great pug, so come on out and meet her. She’ll be at the events until her treatment starts and then will be back at the end of April. Come on out and meet her, you will really be glad you did.






ConnorPH ID: #54
Connor is a black male. He is nearly 2 years old. He came to us with hookworms but those are being treated. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.





ConradPH ID: #5247
Conrad is a young boy that was found some time back wandering all alone.

The finders surrendered him to PugHearts as he has eye issues that need to be addressed. We will know more about this handsome man once he is evaluated by the vet.

From Conrad's foster: Conrad is a smaller pug of only 5 years old. He is very sweet and loves to cuddle in the bed or outside on the swing.

Conrad is, happily, heartworm negative. He is extremely loving and is always so happy when we come home.

Conrad has vision problems but a keen sense of smell that helps him get around just fine. He uses the doggy door and has never had an accident in the house





CookiePH ID: #55
Cookie is a fawn female pug mix that comes to us from a local shelter. We estimate she is between 2 to 3 years old. She is heartworm negative. She is current on vaccinations, microchipped and spayed. She appears to be in very good health.

Cookie is a cuddler - she loves nothing more than snuggling up to a human for love and attention. She gets on very well with other dogs and would do well in a multi-dog household. She is currently in a foster home with a cat and doesn't seem too impressed by it so she would be a candidate for a home with a cat also. She absolutely LOVES children and does well playing with little ones.





CooperPH ID: #330
Cooper is a fawn male. He was picked up by a local animal control after he had been hit by a car. Luckily he had no major injuries. He is heartworm negatve and appears to be in good health. He is somewhere between 3 to 4 years old. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations. He is housetrained. He is a timid boy but seems to be coming out of his shell now that he feels more comfortable.





CooperPH ID: #3284
Cooper is a 2 year old fawn male. He is heartworm positive and will begin treatment this Spring. He came to us as an owner surrender and has been brought current on his vaccinations and is neutered.

Cooper is a playful pug needing some discipline to teach him basic commands and reinforce house training.

Special Notes

Cooper has an adoption pending with his foster family upon completion of heartworm treatment.





CooperPH ID: #905
Cooper is a young male that came to us after being found wandering. He is severe heartworm positive, but has already started his treatment. He is energetic and quite active. His nickname is "Super Dooper Cooper Trooper" and he can move as fast as you can say his name. Cooper loves to play with toys and will often be found in the yard running at the birds and squirrels. He is happy and eager to start his new life with a wonderful family that will never leave his to wander alone again.

From Cooper's foster: Let me tell you about Cooper a sweet fawn male who is 3 1/2 years old. When Cooper came to me he was so famished, heartworm positive and his tail was no thicker than a No 2 pencil. You could see every bone in his body and his hair was very thin and course. He was so curious to fit in and be loved. He did however not understand at first that it was okay to share toys and that no one was going to fight him for it.

Well now Cooper has been treated for heartworms and well on his way to a happy and loved life. He has begun putting on weight because now his tail is as thick as sharpie marker. His coat is softening up and getting thicker by the day. Cooper now knows that it is okay to share, as he loves to play tug of war with my other pug. He is so good he always comes when called and surely knows what it means to go out side. He is amazing and so cute I like to call him my little manatee as his little lips hang low down just like a manatee. Who couldn't love this boy.





CoraPH ID: #929
Cora is a heart stealer! She came in with Bronson from a hoarding situation and when I went to pick her up at the clinic she was huddled in the back of the crate, shaking. I think they told her to do that because they all know I can’t deal with seeing one of our pugs so scared. After I held her for awhile she stopped shaking and when we got home seemed to be okay. Cora is absolutely beautiful! She is a very small pug, about 12 pounds (of course she will be bigger than that after I have her for awhile). She is about 2 or 3 years old. She is one of those that just melt into your arms when you hold her, and let me tell you she LOVES to be held! She will reach up every once in awhile and give me a few kisses and then lay back down in lay arms (like a baby). What more can a human ask for??

Cora seems to be very healthy with no heartworms. She does have a little issue on her back where it looks like she had some problems with fleas but that will be gone quickly since she no longer has them. She goes outside with all the others (we have pack potty breaks at my house, they all have to go out when I tell them to) and to my knowledge hasn’t had any accidents. She also is fine in a crate and has not soiled her blankets once.

Cora is an absolute dream! I can’t imagine how anyone could not fall in love with her immediately. I think she would do best in a home with at least one other dog to keep her company. I don’t think she will do well with small children because she is so timid and little ones move quite fast and have shrill voices (I couldn’t believe how ear splitting my girls were when they were younger :-) I do think she would love to have older children as companions. She will adore anyone that gives her the love that she so desperately needs. Think about giving Cora the home she deserves.





CorkyPH ID: #324
Carlo is a very handsome fawn pug with a face that could win anyone over. He is approximately one year old and was found wandering the streets. Carlo is sweet, obedient and loves to give kisses. He loves spending time with his brother, Lex, who was also rescued by PugHearts. The two like to chase each other around the house, go to dog parks, and savor the taste of a good piece of rawhide.





CorrinaPH ID: #391
Corrina is a black female. She is 7 years old. Unfortunately, poor Corrina has spent her life in a backyard breeder's facility. She is now through with that life and has been spayed so she will never be abused again. Thankfully she is heartworm negative and appears to be in good health. We are bringing her current on her vaccinations and microchipping her.





CortiPH ID: #752
Corti is a fawn female. She is an owner surrender and is 6 years old. She is in good health and is heartworm negative. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on her vaccinations.

From Corti's foster: Corti is great. Plays well with our other dogs and couldn't be any more gentle around the kids. Can bark a little but only when she needs something. House trained with zero accidents since she has been with us. Sweet girl.





CosmoPH ID: #691
Cosmo is a 5-year old neutered fawn male who was an owner surrender through no fault of his own. He was rescued once before in his short life, so he definitely needs a forever home. He is severe heartworm positive and will begin treatment shortly. He also has dry eye in his left eye so he will need moisturizing drops daily to keep him comfortable. He is already neutered and is current on his vaccinations. He's crate trained, good with children, and is very playful and active.

From Cosmo's foster: Cosmo is a very playful and talkative little guy. He is an energetic pup who loves attention and is willing to demand it, his outgoing, here I am personality puts a smile on my face and makes me laugh, I so wish I could understand what he was trying to tell me. He is potty and kennel trained and knows how to use the dog door, he gets along well with all the other dogs in the house. He has had a hard life and deserves the rest of his life to be the best and most spoiled it can be.





CourtneyPH ID: #3166
Courtney is a fawn female. She is about 3-4 years old. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on her vaccinations.

From Courtney's foster: Meet spunky Courtney! Her energy level depends on the situation: she's hyper when it's an exciting environment and chill when it's a calm environment. She is a tall girl with lots of personality. Her height helps her jump on to the couch so she can cuddle up and sleep next to you. She would be a great addition to any family due to the fact that she adapts well. Adopt her and let her show you some love!





CourtneyPH ID: #4526
Courtney is a 3 year old fawn female from a shelter. She was found wandering all alone with no tags or microchip.

From Courtney's foster: Courtney is a spunky, but loving little girl who enjoys engaging with children, adults and other pups. She is happy hanging out in a lap or rough housing with whomever is up to a challenge. If you aren’t paying enough attention to her, she’ll drop a stuffed toy in front of you for a game of tug-o-war. She was found with a skin condition that is being treated with antibiotics. It should clear up quickly. Courtney is house trained and knows how to use a doggy door.

From a personality point of view, she is one of our favorite fosters who have resided with us. If you want an upbeat, all around happy dog, you should consider Ms. Courtney.





CowboyPH ID: #5254
Cowboy us a young male that came to PugHearts as an owner surrender.

He was transported to us by a great couple whom he charmed so completely...they adopted him.






CracklePH ID: #4333
Crackle is a 2 year old heartworm positive brindle male. He has been neutered and has been started on the road to heartworm treatment.





CraigPH ID: #898
Craig is a young, small fawn male about 2 years old. He is HW neg and totally adorable. He had a mass near his eye removed, but had no other medical issues.

From Craig (with a little help from his foster): My name is Craig and I'm a 2-3 year old fawn male. The doctor fixed my eye, gave me a bunch of shots, found out I don't have heartworms and then he neutered me. It's a good thing that I'm a good boy!

I've been learning to "sit" and I learned how to use a doggy door. My foster mom says that I'm a smart little boy. I like to play and snuggle with the other dogs at her house, but she hasn't seen me with other animals or children. I'm laid back when I'm not playing.

I need to find myself a good, forever home where they will love me and take care of me. Can you do that?





CranberryPH ID: #3309
Cranberry is a black female. She was found wandering the streets with another pug. She is heartworm negative.





CricketPH ID: #2136
Cricket is a black Pug/Boston mix. She comes to us from a local animal control shelter.

From Cricket's foster: Cricket is a sweet little Bug. But she has more Pug in her than Boston. She is relatively small and is quite loving and gentle. When she was picked up from BARC she was a ball of fur that was quite sad. She would curl up on my lap and when I tried to move her is was like she was frozen that way and wouldn’t uncurl. It was very distressing to see how little socialization she had received. Well that didn’t last long. Cricket is now the life of the party. She is quite happy and loves to play. She plays with the other fosters, with toys, whatever is handy. I found her fighting with the dog bed this weekend that is about 10x her size, and she was winning by the sound of it.

She still has some issues, she is very submissive and will roll onto her back when I approach to pick her up. But she’s quite happy to be picked up as her kisses will tell. She really likes to be held. She doesn’t have the extreme activity level as most Bugs so that is why I say she is more Pug. She is also house trained and doesn’t seem to shed very much at all. She’s really quite a sweet girl to have around. She would do extremely well in a house with children that would like to run and play with her but also like to have her cuddled up next to them all night long. She is a very well behaved young lady and will be a great addition to any family, big or small.





CricketPH ID: #4725
Cricket is an adorable 1 year old female who came to us from a local shelter already spayed. Her coat is soft, lush, and apricot fawn. She is healthy, bright-eyed, and full of energy, as you would expect from a puppy. She plays, and plays hard with other young dogs, and loves toys, chase, tug, and wrestle. If no-one will play with her, she finds a toy to toss in the air and catch or pounce on it by herself. Her joy is infectious, but she needs to learn some boundaries especially with older dogs who don’t want to play. She would love to be an alpha dog, but has been learning the hard way that life doesn’t revolve around her (all the time, anyhow.) Once she’s tired out, she cuddles like a champ. We guess there may be a bit of Chihuahua in her blood line someplace, but she has a curly tail, and the little bit of an upturned nose only adds to her cute factor and her ability to breathe and run. She jumps like an Olympian, too, despite her small size, and her speed while doing zoomies around the yard is impressive. She is housebroken and is quite the chow hound. Like most puppies, she needs a bit of guidance and discipline, and will reward you in turn with endless entertainment and kisses.





CrisPH ID: #487
Cris (formerly Cristal) is a fawn male. We're not sure about the name so we're hoping that whoever adopts him thinks of a better one!

We will post a full bio for Cris as well as more photos once he has settled into his foster home.





CrockettPH ID: #4998
Crockett is a young male owner surrender.

From Crockett's foster: Crockett is a 7 year old, neutered, heartworm negative owner surrender. He is such a loveable goofball and when he’s excited he lets you know! Crockett loves belly rubs, laying in the sun, giving kisses and playing with toys. But more than that, he loves being with his people! He is such a snuggly teddy bear!

He gets along with my grumble and is slowly learning how to play to play with others. While he doesn’t play much yet with the other dogs, he is great entertaining himself or rushing up to you with a toy to play fetch. He does not sleep in his kennel but he readily goes into the kennel for his meals and while we are out of the house. Like I said before, he likes to be with people so he loves to cuddle on the bed at night!

Crockett is looking for his forever family… could it be yours?





CrookPH ID: #432

CrownPH ID: #934
Crown is a black male. He is about 2 years old and was found wandering the streets with no tags or microchip. He has been neutered, microchipped and brought current on his vaccinations.

From Crown's foster: Crown is quite the character. He's 1-2 years old and still has a lot of puppy in him, although he came to us house trained and with quite a few commands under his belt. He can sit, lay down and stay very well. While he still has his moments of craziness, he still loves to lay or lean on you and snuggle close to you at night. Crown loves to go on walks! He's very easily distracted by other dogs and people in the neighborhood and loves to greet everyone he sees. He also plays very well with our other two pugs. He's never too rough and has the sweetest disposition - he never bites or growls! Crown loves to sleep in the sunlight and can often be found napping on the top cushion of our couch looking out the window. Crown also loves Ryan (my husband) and Lenny (my Dad). Whenever they are around, he always wants to climb on them and lay right next to them on the couch. He loves big guys! Like a true pug, he follows us around and is quick to get up and follow us whenever we move. He likes to check on everyone constantly, especially kids. Crown has been a great addition to our family and fits right in with everyone! He has gone by Oliver since we first picked him up and knows his name well now.





CrumpetPH ID: #843
Crumpet is a fawn female. She comes to us from a local kill shelter.

From Crumpet's foster: Crumpet…..She is tiny, has a sweet face and eyes that will melt your heart. She loves to play and sometimes I think she is part mountain goat because she likes to climb on things! She is just so much fun to have around! She isn’t food aggressive and waits her turn to get her bowl. When she is not being a little ‘livewire’ and playing or climbing, she likes nothing better than relaxing in a lap. She is housebroken and will let you know when she needs to go out, so will probably adapt very well to a doggie door. If one is not available, she will use the training pads.

She is very social and gets along well with my pug family. More often than not, I have Crumpet and my Amanda in my lap at the same time. I’ve only fostered her a very short time but she is going to be a great little companion for some lucky family!





CrystalPH ID: #3293
Crystal is a beautiful fawn female about five years old. She comes to us from a local shelter. She has been spayed, microchipped, and is up to date on her vaccinations. Crystal is heartworm positive and will be starting treatment soon.

From Crystal's foster: Introducing Crystal - aka "Crystal Rose". She is one of the sweetest fosters I have ever had. From the first day that I brought Crystal home, she got along and fit right in with my three pugs. Crystal has a funny little walk, and when I saw her run for the first time, it was even funnier! She also has a very good appetite and loves her kibble, peas, carrots, broccoli, green beans, blueberries, and even LOVES sardines! Crystal is also quite the snuggler - she sleeps right next to me under the covers and sleeps all night. Crystal is not a morning girl, so I have to convince her to get out of bed and go outside! She had just a few accidents in the house, but with a little coaxing and love, she is completely house trained. One of her favorite things is chewing on an antler.

Crystal is such a little love bug. She is so happy to see me when I get home from work, and she follows me everywhere. She just loves her human. Crystal's cute little face will melt anyone's heart. She will bring lots of joy, laughter, and love to a lucky family who will give Crystal her forever home. She will always have a piece of my heart.





CupidPH ID: #882
If you are looking for your BFF then Cupid is your girl! Cupid is a fawn female who gets her name from being found on Valentine’s Day with no tags or micro chip. Cupid is estimated to be 5 years old and is on the smaller size for a pug weighing 17 pounds. Cupid has impeccable house manners. Cupid is crate trained, rides in the car well and most importantly housebroken. She does not chew on anything that does not belong to her. She has excellent manners and listens well. Cupid would do well in a house or apartment as she does not require any additional exercise. She is also a very routine dog, meaning she knows how to anticipate what is next in her day to day activities in life. She loves to be with her people and follows them around and just hangs out in the same room or sit with them on the couch. She is very eager to please and loves her treats, toys and bones. Cupid would do well in a family with children over the age of 10. Cupid gets along well with other dogs. Cupid has successfully undergone heart worm treatment. The heartworms were hard on her and she will require daily medication for life. Don't let this scare you about her - she is a very tough cookie! Please contact us if you would like more information.

Cupid is a wonderful girl and deserves a family of her own. Please consider adding her to your family.





CupidPH ID: #56
Cupid is a beautiful fawn female. She is a 9 year old owner surrender through no fault of her own. She is in excellent health (except for maybe needing to shed a pound or two.) She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on her vaccinations.

Cupid comes to us with her son Junior. As they have always been together, we will not separate them and they must be adopted out together. Cupid is housebroken and a very behaved little lady. She is very sweet and has a laid back temperment. She's happy mothering her son and relaxing on a human lap.





CupidPH ID: #4909
Cupid is a 7 yr old male. He comes to PugHearts from a local shelter where an ACO saved his life by responding to a neglect call.

From Cupid's foster: Cupid is a 7-8 year old small male fawn pug. He came to PugHearts from South Texas, skinny, covered with fleas and heart worm positive. He has been neutered and brought up to date on his shots. He is scheduled to get a full dental and treatment for his heartworms. He should be ready for his forever home sometime in the summer of 2016.

Cupid is putting on weight with his steady diet of quality chow. He is house trained and kennel trained. He also sleeps in the people bed at times. Cupid is happy and adjusted well to his foster family. I believe he is deaf because he does not hear people coming or going. He is a small little guy and follows his people around the house. He plays a bit with the youngster at the house and naps with the old guy.

D PH ID: #428
D is a fawn male. We believe he is 2 or 3 years old. He was found wandering the streets with no tags or microchip. We don't think anyone's been looking after him because he is heartworm positive. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From D's Foster: This is one fun-loving little dog. "D" (who we currently call Cap as in Cap(ital) D) is an easy-going dog who looks for fun in life. He loves to surround himself with toys from squeaky toys to rawhide chews to bones. Then he will prance upwith one in his mouth to get us to chase him. He really likes soft squeaky toys. He gets along with the 3 other dogs in our household, and has learned the feeding routine. He is a beautiful tawny color, the color of a lion; and he is a thinner, leggier pug - not so low to the ground. He loves meeting folks and when he meets people out in the street he goes up to them and sits as close to them as possible and receives his pats. He is gentle and charms everyone he meets. "D" loves going on walks, and walks fairly well on the leash. He appears potty trained and he uses the doggie door at our home but he really prefers going for walks for potty. He likes to sit in my lap, and also likes to cuddle close in the bed if he doesn't have to compete with other dogs on the bed. In that case he will sleep on a corner of the bed. He has a sweet face and I will often find him watching me. This is one nice little dog. He is currently undergoing heartworm treatment and will be ready for adoption in a month.





DahliaPH ID: #889
Dahlia is a fawn female. She is in good health except for her vision loss. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on her vaccinations.

From Dahlia's foster: Pardon the haircut...Dahlia came to PugHearts with this do and is working on growing out a soft, new coat. Dahlia is a calm, senior Pug. She is almost if not competely blind but does well once she has adjusted to her environment. She enjoys being snuggled and held. She is a pretty quiet girl really only barking if she senses something new around her. Dahlia can usually be found at my feet or cuddled up in a bed resting. She does enjoy short, evening walks on her leash sniffing out the way! Dahlia would be a great only dog or part of a group, she is pretty low key.





DaiquiriPH ID: #2120
Daiquiri is a black female. She is heartworm negative.





DaisyPH ID: #57
Daisy is sweet fawn female. We estimate she is between 3 to 4 years old. This poor little girl was abandoned by her owners – when they moved out of their house they just left her behind in the backyard! We cannot understand why anyone would do that to this sweetheart. She deserves so much better.

Daisy has been spayed and is in good health. She does have a 'small' left eye – the eye does not work. However, it doesn’t cause her any problems and she does not even need drops or ointment for it. Daisy has been brought up to date on her vaccinations and has been microchipped.

Daisy’s foster Mom describes her as 'shy and loving.' She gets on well with other dogs and has been housebroken. She will make a great pet. This little girl needs a loving home that will promise to love her forever and never leave her behind!






DaisyPH ID: #4927
Daisy is a hyper young lady in need of an active family with other dogs to play and run with.





DaisyPH ID: #4451
Daisy is a Boston/Pug mix. She is 4 years old and an owner surrender. She has lived with children previously.

From Daisy’s Foster: Daisy is a 4 year old brindle Bug (boston terrier/pug) with a cute white chest and front toes that was picked up by PugHearts from an animal shelter after her family dropped her off. Daisy is HW+ and will have to go through treatment before she can be adopted. She was very nervous the first couple days at our house and seems to take a little longer to warm up and feel comfortable in new situations. She still occasionally gets scared and shaky, but seems to be getting better each day that passes. Daisy loves to lay right next to you or at your feet and she loves giving kisses. She enjoys playing with her favorite toy, a little stuffed pug, and even sleeps with it. Daisy gets along good with other dogs, but has a hard time knowing what it too aggressive for play. Her foster mom and dad are working on this! Daisy is potty-trained and is learning how to use the doggy door. Daisy stays in a crate while her foster parents are gone and sleeps all night in the crate. Whoever gets this sweet adorable girl is one lucky family!

Daisy 3PH ID: #999
Daisy is a fawn female. She came to us from a local shelter. We believe she is between 6 to 8 years old. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on her vaccinations.

From Daisy (with a little help from her foster): Hi everyone, My name is Daisy. I am approximately 6 years old. I was rescued from BARC by PugHearts not too long ago. I am very small but I love to eat. I'm with fosters now and they have two pugs, but I don't really pay attention to them. I'd rather play with toys but that could I love being with my fosters though. I follow them everywhere and try to be by their side as mush as I can. Now let me tell you, a pretty girl like me comes with some baggage. I have eye issues and require daily drops. I have a hard time seeing at night or in shadows but with a good Mom and Dad that shouldn't be an issue. I I'm being treated for mange but should be done with treatment in a few weeks. Now here are a list of my demands! A comfy lap to sit on and someone who can spoil me daily. I need attentive parents who love Daisies because they can have a fresh Daisy everyday if they adopt me.





DakotaPH ID: #837
Dakota is a 2 year old female. She came to us from a local shelter after she was found wandering on a busy street. Dakota came with some baggage and we are helping her to know love and affection. She is doing well and seems to be housebroken. Dakota was treated for intestinal parasite and is heartworm negative. Dakota is a love and craves human attention and companionship. She needs a calmer home where she can be the cuddle bug that she wishes. Dakota is interested in a soft bed, loving human and a place where she will be the princess she knows she is forever.





DalePH ID: #686
Dale is a fawn male. He is 3 years old and comes to us from a local animal control facility. He appears to be in good health and is heartworm negative.

Hi – I’m Dale! I am a 3 year old male, a very handsome one if I may say so myself. Well, actually that’s what my foster mom tells me anyway. I’m a big guy who loves to play with toys & snuggle. My foster mom says that I’m a big love bug…I thought I was a pug – but that’s what she keeps calling me! I don’t care if you are another dog, or a human, just snuggle with me! It is my most favorite thing to do. I am healthy, and have very good house manners. I haven’t had any accidents at my foster home – so I guess that’s a good thing! Although I haven’t been around little 2 legged people, I think I’d do great with them because I am gentle with food & treats – and I just love people all around! There’s a really bossy dog in my foster home – but I don’t care – I let him be the boss, I don’t need to be the alpha guy. So please, consider making me a permanent love bug, I mean pug, in your family!! I would especially like a home with other dogs so I could snuggle with them while you are away from home. :-)





DallasPH ID: #230
Dallas is a 4 year old fawn male. He was an owner surrender. He has been brought up to date on his vaccinations, microchipped and neutered. He is heartworm negative. He is one big fella who is now on a diet!

Dallas is a very active and social pug. He enjoys playing around with other dogs and would do well in a multi-pug household. Though he is housebroken he is still learning not to mark. As he is just recently neutered this is not surprising. His training is coming along very well though. He is a sweet boy but he is a bundle of energy - no couch potato here!





DamienPH ID: #4898
Damien is a very handsome 3 year old black male whose owners found him as a stray several months ago. They had him neutered and vaccinated, but did not identify that he had a broken hip and elbow. He was surrendered to Pughearts when he became aggressive. We identified that pain was likely causing his bad behavior. After being on pain meds and anti-inflammatories for a week he is a quiet, snuggly little guy who gets along well with other dogs, and is even starting to play. He loves his crate which has a thick comfy bed, and to sunbathe outside. He is delighted to have earned human bed privileges once his foster mom figured out a way to attach his belly band to his harness so he can't wiggle out of it. Damien's elbow has healed crookedly, but does not seem to bother him. His hip will require surgery and healing before he is ready for adoption.





DaniPH ID: #268
Dani is a 5 year old fawn female mix who came to us from a local shelter. Dani is moderately heartworm positive and is beginning treatment. She has been brought current on her vaccinations, microchipped and spayed.

From Dani's Foster: Dani is a wonderful little pug mix. I truly think she is a pug/dachshund. She has a long low body with short muscular legs but she has a pug face, pug coat, and curly tail. She has the most beautiful brown eyes. And she is Longhorn orange (Sorry Aggies!). Her coat is soft and she loves to sit in your lap to get some good scratching. She joined my family of 3 dogs very easily, and her potty-training moved along smoothly, so I can say she appears to be housebroken.

She is a very mild-mannered dog but she does know how to play. She walks well on the leash. She is friendly with everyone I have introduced her to. People can't resist picking her up and hugging her. She is a wonderful companion dog.






DanielPH ID: #700
Daniel is a fawn male. We believe he is about 4 years old. He was found wandering in a field with Mara. Daniel was heartworm positive and has been treated. He has done well and is ready for a forever home. He had a large mass on his back leg that was removed and we were happy to find out that is was benign.

Daniel is a happy boy that loves other dogs and people. He has a beautiful dark expressive face. He is looking for a family that is fairly active and ready to make him a part of their family and lives forever.





DaniellePH ID: #4550
Danielle is a 4-5 year old female who was found wandering the street. She has a bladder infection, which is being treated. Fortunately, no stones were found so we hope this is a short-term issue.

From Danielle's foster: Danielle is a gorgeous pug with loads of personality. Her coat is so soft, and she has a tail that looks like a cinnamon roll. Danielle is up for being a lap dog and rolls over for her belly rubs. However, she equally enjoys playing with the other dogs in the house. You can tell that she has had some training, because she will sit on command (if you insist.) Danielle has lots of energy, so she needs to be adopted into a home where she will get plenty of exercise or will have other dogs to rough house with.






DantePH ID: #4337
Dante is a black male. He is 3-4 years old. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From Dante's foster: Dante is one handsome black pug! He has a huge head and the best smushed face I have seen in very few pugs. He is an owner surrender and has been a pet since he was born so he doesn't have any of the baggage that goes along with neglect or abuse. He has skin issues, which are not permanent and are healing up nicely. He has a yeast infection that was allowed to become quite severe but bathing in medicated shampoo is making a very big difference. I have also put him on a grain free dog food for any allergies that may have contributed to the issue. He also will need to have ointment for his eyes to keep them healthy.

One endearing thing about Dante is his look of continual surprise. He has huge eyes and some white shows around the black so he looks surprised 100% of the time. He makes me smile just looking at him. He is quite attentive to everything that goes on around him and seems to be intelligent. He is quite busy following the other fosters around and is very even tempered and well mannered. I don't believe he was allowed on the furniture in his previous life because even though he is physically able he won't jump on the couch with me. I have to pick him up to cuddle, and he does like to cuddle :)

Dante will make someone a great addition to their family. He is only 4 years old so he has a lot of play left in him but he's just old enough to also like to snuggle and veg out. He's extremely well-mannered and is completely house trained. He will be quite a hit once he is introduced to the Pughearts followers.





DaphnePH ID: #836
From Daphne's foster: Daphne is new to my home, but is a doll. She has earned the nickname Chirpy. She does not seem to bark, but has a cute little chirp sound that she makes when she wants your attention. Daphne was found wandering as a stray. She is heartworm negative and seems to be a great health. She loves people and other pugs. She is a little shadow and will follow you all over the house and yard. Daphne likes to play with soft toys and enjoys the outdoors, but would rather be with you. She is a smaller pug at about 15 pounds. Daphne is looking for her fairy tale ending. Are you her Prince or Princess Charming?

DarcyPH ID: #3185
Darcy is a fawn female. She comes to us after her owner passed away.

From Darcy's foster: Little Miss Darcy is spayed, heartworm negative, and completely healthy. She is just over a year and has the energy to prove it! She loves to play and will even play by herself if no one pays attention to her. She lacks social skills and doesn't know really how to play. She would greatly benefit from some one (or dog) to take the time and be patient so she can learn. She is a lover and would kiss you all day if you let her!





DarienPH ID: #4562
Darien is a small 5 year old black pug with just the sweetest little face! He is very easy going, potty trained and doesn't mind sleeping in his crate. He absolutely loves kids...he cries every morning when I drop my daughter off at school. Darien also likes car rides and walks and gets along with my two other pugs (as long as he doesn't have to share treats or food). Darien is a loving little boy and will make a wonderful family pet to whoever is lucky enough to adopt him!

DariusPH ID: #4838
Darius is a 3 yr old neutered black male.

He is severe heartworm positive and will have to go through heartworm treatment prior to being eligible for adoption.

From Darius' foster: Darius is a 3 year old black male Pug. He came to Pughearts by owner surrender through no fault of his own. Apparently he was raised outdoors since he had a multitude of fleas, ticks and worms. He is also heart worm positive which means he will be with us a few months to go through his heartworm treatment before he can be adopted. Darius is now rid of the fleas and ticks and is living the pug life INDOORS and loving it! He seems so appreciative to be inside with his foster parents and their dogs. He gets along with everyone. He is very energetic and loves to play with other dogs, toys and his humans but he also loves snuggling. We are going through some potty training with him and he's doing great. He now has been crate trained. He may look serious in his photos but this boy has a very happy disposition! Always wagging his tail! Won't you please consider giving him a forever home and family.





DarlaPH ID: #4836
Darla is a 7 yr old fawn female. She is heartworm negative and already spayed.

From Darla's foster: Darla has the best personality. She is active ( especially when you are excited ) but at the same time she will just lay in bed all day. She loves going for car rides, eating and playing with our two year old daughter. She is great with other dogs. We have one pug and one boxer and she loves to play with them both. She loves snuggling in her bed or right at your feet wherever you are. When she gets really excited she spins in circles. She has mastered the cutest pug head tilt. She seems to be fully potty trained. She can't wait to find her forever home!





DarlaPH ID: #5026
Darla is a young girl from a local shelter. She will be seen by our vet and we will update soon.





DarlaPH ID: #5191
Meet Darla. She is a precious 7 year old fawn female that comes to PugHearts looking for her forever family. She is heartworm negative, spayed, micro chipped, and up to date on all vaccines.

From Darla's foster: Introducing "Darla Bean" - my foster and "pink girl". Darla is one of the happiest fosters I have ever had. All I have to do is talk to her and she wags her tail furiously! Nothing phases her - she is ALWAYS happy!!

Darla has fit in very well with my pups. She gets along well with other dogs as well as humans. She is potty trained and has not had an accident in the house. She also sleeps all night in her doggy bed.

Darla is a good eater and not picky. I feed her "Taste of the Wild" salmon or lamb. She loves her sardines and yogurt, fruits, and veggies that I add to her food.

Darla is somewhat visually impaired, but that does not stop her or break her spirit. She navigates my home perfectly, follows me everywhere, and always wants to "touch me". What Darla lacks in vision, she makes up for with her sharp hearing. Her "radar" knows wherever I am. I think Darla would do best in a home with no children. (No offense intended).

Thank you for reading Darla's bio. Please consider giving this special girl her forever home. She is laid back and pretty much PERFECT!! Darla will bring your home so much love, joy, and laughter.





DarrenPH ID: #5280
Meet Darren. This young man comes to PugHearts with major trauma to his eye. He will be cared for by our vet and will be feeling better in no time.

From Darren's foster: Darren loves to play with all his toys and loves to fetch the ball. He has a long tongue that sticks out when he is happy. He is a very lovable 3 year old male Pug. He is my velcro Pug who gives much affection and many kisses. He does very well in his crate, and he is very close to being completely potty trained. He loves his treats and will "sit" for one. He did very well with the kids in the Playpen at the World Series dog show. I am not sure how he interacts with cats as I do not have one. He interacts very well with my older Pugs, and he listens well. His food aggression has been getting better, and he knows his bowl and will not try to get into the others until they are all done. He does well on his leash and is showing his bark when he sees a stranger. He loves treats and looks forward to one after he goes outside. He loves Greenies as a reward. He is on a schedule and knows when it is time for bed. He will occasionally get in the bed with me but he doesn't stay long with me - just long enough to get a few cuddles and kisses, and then off to his bed for a sound sleep.





DarrenPH ID: #1045
Darren is a fawn male. He is about 3 years old. He is heartworm negative. He is already neutered, microchipped and current on his vaccinations.

From Darren (with some help from his foster): Hi, this is Darren. If the name sounds familiar it’s because I was here last year. I was adopted to be friends with a little Bugg named Roxie last March. But, our mom got sick and couldn’t take care of us anymore. She was really cool. She gave us all the food we ever wanted. I was a skinny little thing when she adopted me because I had had heart worms and only weighed 17 pounds. I also had lots of hot spots. PugHearts took care of my heartworms and the hot spots so that I was adopted. And my adopted mom, like I said, gave me all the food I wanted to eat. The vet told me I needed to lose some of the 13 pounds I gained though. But the food was good and made my coat real soft and lush. I am still the athlete I was when I was skinny. I have great balance and can clear a baby gate without touching it. My foster mom says she’s going to get me a skateboard and try to teach me to ride it. She says there’s a buff Pug still in my future and that I will get back to that, whatever that means. Anyway, I’m about 3 years old, healthy, up to date on shots, and heartworm negative. I am a very sweet boy. I get along with all people and other dogs. I will sleep in your bed quietly or in my kennel. I love my kennel; it’s my special place. I also ride well in the car and walk well on a leash. I love to go for walks so I will hopefully lose the weight I need to lose real quickly and be ready for my furever home.





DashPH ID: #5399
Dash is a young black male that comes to PugHearts with his friend Dot. They join our family due to changes in their previous home.

These 2 are very bonded and will only be adopted together.





DavePH ID: #58
Dave is an adorable fawn male. He is between 1 1/2 years to 2 year old. He was found wandering the streets by a Good Samaritan who contacted us to find him a home. He has now been microchipped and brought current on his vaccinations. He will be neutered prior to placement. He is in excellent health.

This little cutie is a sweet boy who loves people and attention. He is very well behaved. He gets on well with other dogs and even cats! In fact, he seems to get along with everyone. Dave is going to make some lucky person one fabulous companion.





DavidPH ID: #4839

DavidPH ID: #4731
I was found roaming the streets of Humble, TX. I’m a very sweet, funny 5 year old with so much love to give. I’m heartworm negative and I’m a looker! I get along really well with my foster brothers and prefer to be with you ALL the time! I sometimes cry if you leave me but if you tell me to go to bed, I will, but very begrudgingly. I like to get up early for breakfast and will go right back to sleep after I eat. I love to play with toys. I love my human foster brother and he likes to play with me. I’m trying to put on a little weight (I was on the run for a bit) and am learning some potty manners. I sit on command and am learning to stay and come. My foster mommy says I’m doing a great job!

I really want to find my forever home with someone who needs a companion to spend their days with. If you want a sweet lovable guy go fill out an application!! I’m the one!





DavidsonPH ID: #367
Davidson is a 4 year old fawn male. He was an owner surrender with his littermate Harley. They are very bonded and need to stay together. He is in good health and is heartworm negative. He is up to date on his vaccinations, microchipped and neutered.

From Davidson's foster: Davidson, who we call Davey for short, is the more docile of the Harley Davidson duo. He looks to Harley for guidance, and leadership, but doesn't get into as much stuff as Harley does. He's a lover, but it takes him a little longer to trust someone, however once he does, he is your friend for life. He enjoys being around humans, but doesn't really like to be picked up, and held. He loves to chew on his Kong, and sleep next to his brother Harley. He gets along well with other dogs, even little vicious Chihuahuas!

Davey is quiet, and while he enjoys exploring around the house, he doesn't really like being in the grass. He's a sweetheart, and the Harley Davidson Duo will be a great pair for someone who wants a loving pair of pugs with real personality!





DavisPH ID: #4344
Davis is a black male. He is about 2 years old. He was found on the streets with no tags or microchip. He is heartworm positive and will begin treatment shortly. He has been neutered, microchipped and brought current on his vaccinations.

From Davis' foster: This is Davis, or Sammy Davis as I call him. He says: Hi Pug People! My name is Davis and I’m a gorgeous 2 year old black pug with golden eyes and a white star on my chest. I have several personality qualities I should share with you. First, I fell into the pool when I first got to my foster home. It was real cold and I just sank to the bottom! I avoid it now, but Mom told me she was going to give me swimming lessons when it got warm again. Next, I love airplanes! I can hear them flying through the air and call out to them. Mom says it’s good they don’t come down to see me; not sure why. I can help you clean up and dry off too. I love to lick-lots of things, which seems to annoy Mom as well sometimes. The other dogs let me lick them and they lick me back, except for Furley of course. I get along with everyone else, just need to learn to give the old guy his space. Now, I am great with kids of all sizes. I like to run, so you need to be sure my tags are on whenever you take me out.

I can’t think what else you would need to know. Watch the website for progress on my heartworm treatment. I know I will be loving on lots of you at the events!





DawsonPH ID: #1008
Dawson is a fawn male. He is 1 1/2 years old. He is an owner surrender through no fault of his own. He is in good health; he is heartworm negative. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.





DeanPH ID: #4967
Dean is an 8 yr old black male. He is heartworm negative and will be neutered soon.

From Dean's foster: This is foster Dean. He is very new to my house so I'm not sure of all his personality traits but I do know that he's sweet and he gets along with all the other fosters. He's healthy, no HW and no dry eye, so as soon as he's neutered he will be looking for his forever family. He's around 7 - 8 years old (I think) and is a larger pug. He's not in the least bit fat but he has a large bone structure. He's a sturdy guy and could hold his own with big dogs playing and is not jumping all over me so would be good for children. He seems like a well-rounded guy.






DeannaPH ID: #59
DeAnna is a gorgeous fawn female. She is an owner surrender who is 7 years old. She is current on all vaccinations and microchipped. She will be spayed prior to placement. She is in excellent health.

DeAnna is a friendly, loving girl who is very well behaved. She gets along beautifully with other dogs and would do well in a multi-dog environment. She also absolutely loves kids and would be very happy in a home with children to play with! She is housebroken and leash trained. Right now DeAnna is a little bit on the pudgy side, so she could stand to lose a pound or two. But otherwise she is ready for her new home and new adventures.





DeclanPH ID: #3253
Declan is a fawn male. He is 3 years old. He is heartworm negative. He came to us with an open wound on his neck, likely from a rubber band or string being placed too tightly and left there.

He was treated by our wonderful vet and made a full recovery.






Dee DeePH ID: #518
Dee Dee is a 6 year old black female. She is heartworm negative. She is current on her vaccinations, microchipped and spayed.

From Dee's foster: Dee is a sweet girl that wants nothing more than to be a cuddle buddy.

She is a gentle soul that loves to be with her human every moment she has the opportunity. She likes to wrestle (gently) with her chew toys and foster roommate, but knows when it's time to settle down. If she had her choice she would lounge around most of the day, but never passes the opportunity for a nice day in the yard. She sleeps well through the night and prefers to snuggle under the blankets with her human. She does exceptionally well with children, cats, and other dogs. She is a charming little lady that would suit any family well, especially one that wants to shower her with affection, because she sure deserves it.





DeeganPH ID: #493
Hi! My name is Deegan...........and I am a HOARDER! My hoarding item of choice is anything plush with a squeaker. I live to destroy squeaky toys, I know it's a problem, which is why I attend hoarders anonymous meetings on a regular basis. I am a 2 year old neutered male, who is looking for the home with the most toys. I have an eye condition that requires drops once a day, but that doesn't stop me from finding toys or food, or even my foster mom's doggie door. I have very limited vision, but have a very positive, happy go lucky personality despite that fact! I am severe heart worm positive, and will be undergoing treatment as soon as Pughearts can get me some medicine. I love to sleep on the bed with my mom, and my two new pug friends, and even the cat! I potty outside, and only occasionally piddle in the house. I really like kids, and they seem to like me which is good because they don't seem to mind when I give them puggie kisses. I've got lots of love to give.....if you've got the squeaky toys!! :)





DeltaPH ID: #229
Delta is a 4 year old fawn female. She was an owner surrender. She is current on her vaccinations, microchipped and spayed. She is heartworm negative.

Delta is a tiny 4-year old pug (only 11 lbs) who is a bundle of energy. She loves to play with stuffed toys, and will often go to sleep with her mouth firmly holding onto a part of a toy. She also enjoys rawhide chews and bones. Delta loves to jump up in one's lap and go to sleep; she sleeps soundly, and has a really big snore for such a little dog. She loves to go on walks.

She has been living in her foster home as one of 5 dogs. She has changed and improved a lot. Initially she was aggressive, particularly around feeding time, but she seems to have settled in as part of the pack now. She does well going on walks with them, and will cuddle up when all are sleeping around the living room. Delta has picked up on the sit command, and she is improving on leash walking. She feels comfortable in her "pack" and gets on well with her foster siblings, but does not like meeting strange dogs. With continued socialization we hope to see that improve.

She is a sweet little dog who is focused on her humans. She is all pug in her interest in food but she is also a little underweight. Kept on a schedule Delta is improving in potty training but she definitely needs to go more often. She would do best in a home where she would be let out often or have a doggie door. She is an early riser. She is sweet, and wants love and attention.






DeltaPH ID: #4635
Delta is a 14 month old fawn female found wandering as a stray. She's a tiny girl with a big personality! She is potty-trained and playful like a puppy. She loves chasing balls and snuggling. Delta is being adopted by her foster family.

DempseyPH ID: #5240
Dempsey is an adorable boy that comes to PugHearts looking for a new family.

From Dempsey (with some help from his foster): Hi I'm Dempsey. I am a 4 year old winky boy who is full of love and spunk. I love my toys; I know how to play fetch, and I love my belly rubs. My foster dad calls me a lap dog because I would prefer to be next to you at all times. I know how to sit on command. I am also potty trained and will usually wait by the back door when I need to go out. I do great on a leash but not so much in the car. I will sleep in my dog bed but would prefer to sleep in your comfy bed with you. If not then I will whine for a moment and then settle down. I am looking for an active home, one that doesn't miss a beat because I sure don't. I don't mind cats, dogs, or even kids. I need a home that will have lots of toys and a space I can run around at. I am heart worm positive and will need to complete my treatment before I am adoptable (aug/sep) but I promise you I am worth the wait!





DenaliPH ID: #824
Denali is a 4-5 year old HW + male, who will begin treatment in early 2012! Despite being found as a stray Denali seems to be use to being a loved pet and has excellent house manners. He has yet to have an accident in the house, and knows to go to his crate when asked. 'D' is an extremely sweet and playful boy, and is comfortable not being the alpha dog. Denali will play with other dogs, but is much happier to curl up on your lap and take a little 'pug nap'. With such a sweet and gentle nature I think Denali do well with children and could be the perfect addition to a lucky family!





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.





DennettPH ID: #526
Dennett is a fawn female. She is an owner surrender through no fault of her own. She is 9 years old. She is in good health. She is heartworm negative, spayed, microchipped and current on her vaccinations.

From Dennett's foster: Dennett continues to be an absolute joy. She is such a little sweetheart! Dennett (Also known as Ginger) is a petite lady with a beautiful little face, sweet brown eyes, and a lovely personality to match. True to pug form, she loves to shadow her person, enjoys walks, naps and treats, and has never met a stranger. Dennett is very adaptable and easygoing. She would do well in a home with other dogs and with children but would also be a great "only child." She has plenty of love to give you-don't you want to give some back to her?





DennisPH ID: #5051
Dennis is a fawn male that comes to PugHearts from an animal shelter in Texas. He is heartworm negative and neutered.

From Dennis' foster:

Dennis is a very sweet, cuddly boy. He came to us from a shelter and his fur was kind of rough but with good nutrition and bathing it’s starting to look good again. He is only 3 years old, his face is a fawn color so he doesn’t have the solid black mask. He is very well behaved, crate trained, doesn’t bark, gets along with other dogs and is very loving. He will sit on the couch cuddled up to my side as long as I will sit still. He also LOVES to have his tummy rubbed. He’s just an all-round great pug.

Dennis is ready to find his forever home and will be at the events to pick out his new family.





DenzelPH ID: #4553
Denzel is a young male from a shelter in East Texas.

From Denzel's foster: Denzel is an incredibly, happy, handsome young male. He is about 2 years old, but definitely acts all puppy. He loves to play with his foster brothers and sisters, and doesn’t mind the feline ones either! He is happy to run and play in the yard, chew on a bone, or a good bout of tug of war & wrestling. He loves his humans too – is always ready to give kisses and to be held and snuggled with. He’s a smart little guy, he is crate trained and fairly well housebroken. We have found him knocking at the “go outside” bells telling me that “it’s time to do my business mom!” He sleeps in the big bed at night, finds a good spot and settles in. Denzel is healthy, neutered and ready to find his forever home. He’s going to make a perfect family member!

Devon is a fawn male. He is about 8 years old. He is current on his vaccinations, neutered and microchipped.

From Devon's foster: Devon is an awesome little guy….loving & cuddly. He is low key mellow but still has spunky playfulness in him. He loves to be close to his humans. Likes to sleep next to you but does not snore. A kisser with good doggie breath. He is a talker and will let you know when he is excited, hungry or wants your attention. Gets along great with other dogs and children. Loves to chill or go on walks. He is potty trained and does his business in no time flat outside. Sweet temperament and would be good for families or singles.





DevonPH ID: #5058
Devon is a 7 yr old black male. He is severe heartworm positive and dealing with bad skin condition.

From Devon's foster: Devon came to us in August of 2016 as a stray. He is currently HW+ but he starts his treatment on Dec-12th. He should be adoptable by the end of January.

Devon is the perfect gentleman. Don't let his white hair fool you, it is just his wisdom showing! He is only 7 years young and he acts it. He will run and play with you and follow you around the house. The moment you sit on the couch he knows it is time to relax. He is a great snuggler and loves his chest rubs.

Devon is house trained, crate trained (he goes in his crate by himself and sits down), great with other dogs and he knows to sit and shake both paws. He is a very quiet boy and you have to love his permanent bottom teeth smile!

From Dexter's foster: Dexter is an 11 year old fawn male who thinks he is only 2 years. He is very active and playful. He also loves to snuggle. He came in a bit chunky, but now he has hit his goal weight. He is very good in his crate. This handsome senior is looking for a home to live out his golden years.





DexterPH ID: #4802
Meet Foster Dexter! He is an owner surrender and a little over a year old. He is so sweet and full of kisses!!!

Dexter is already neutered and we will update once he has been seen by the vet.





DexterPH ID: #4523
Dexter was born 11/13/2013 in Louisiana where he lived on a military base. Sadly, he also ended up in a small shelter on the base, and we rescued him when his time was up. He is a pug mix, most likely a puggle (pug/beagle), but is a VERY cute one; somehow the hound/pug combination has produced a dog who looks like a miniature boxer. He’s taller than most pugs, has unusual brown coloring, long velvety ears, a broad, short muzzle and a curly tail. He has been neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped and is ready for his forever home. He is all puppy energy, and wants to play, run, and wrestle all the time. He is crate trained, and does not mark. This little guy is friendly, happy, and gives enthusiastic kisses. He loves to play with dogs of all sizes, toys, and is quite rambunctious. His jump is amazing in both height and breadth; baby gates are no obstacle. He loves to play chase, and runs zoomie laps around the yard at warp speed. He doesn’t chew, but has been known to steal shoes, so put them in the closet, potential adopters, and make sure your trash is secured, unless you want to play an unanticipated game of chase! He is crate trained, but loves to sleep cuddled in a human bed under the covers, providing he has had sufficient exercise to tire him out. This is a pug who could be your running companion, playmate for dogs or kids, or endless entertainment for you. He is very smart, and learns commands rapidly (sit, come, fetch, kennel, and “NO” are in his repertoire). He needs continued exercise and training to curb his enthusiasm, provide mental stimulation, and teach him self-control (we’re still working on “no jump”). He rides well in the car, and is very sociable. He’s at his full height, but will probably fill out a bit more. Adopt Dexter and you will have the fun of a puppy without the worst of the housebreaking/chewing stage. Need motivation to start/continue an exercise program? Dexter could run, ride or roll with you on your road to an ideal weight or other fitness goal.





DexterPH ID: #5101
Dexter is a 2 yr old male chug that was found running loose all alone and no one came looking for him.

He is heartworm negative and neutered.

From Dexter's foster: Dexter has been in foster care for 6 months, and would make a wonderful family pet. He is a smart boy and takes direction well. He is no longer mouthy when he plays with his humans. He has also adjusted well to being crated when the humans are at work and doesn't fuss or cry. He has graduated from sleeping in a crate at night to sleeping with his humans, and he sleeps well and doesn't wake up early anymore. He plays well with all the dogs in the house and can be found cuddling in a dog bed or crate with different ones at different times. He is up to 18.5 lbs. He loves to eat and never leaves a drop of food in his dog bowl. I believe he would do well in a family with considerate children and other small dogs.





DexterPH ID: #5294
Dexter is a sweet fawn male. He comes to PugHearts through no fault of his own.

Dexter is a beautiful fawn pug, approximately 7 years old, who loves to be with his person every moment of the day. He will follow you into any room, ensuring you are safe and within eyesight, and wait patiently until you are ready to move on. He is deaf, which only adds to his Velcro Pug personality! He cannot hear you so he keeps himself close by, making sure not to miss any action or kisses. Dexter is an excellent eater and will take treats from your hand like a gentleman. He came to us with some skin issues and ear infections. With the right medications, his skin has improved dramatically and his hair has begun to grow back softer than ever. He is a smaller pug but what he lacks in size, he makes up for in "pug"itude. Dexter is protective of his people. When a new person enters the home, he will bark continually until he feels safe. We have been working on this behavior and he has improved tremendously. He simply needs firm reassurance and consistency. Dexter has shown no aggression towards the other dogs in the home and shows the same sweet disposition towards food, toys, and children. Dexter isn't crazy about being held often; however, he loves to sit with you, lay with you on lazy days, and receive lots of hugs and kisses. When Dexter first came to our home, he had some marking issues. We have worked on encouraging him to use the restroom outside and he has improved greatly. He still wears a belly band during the day when his humans are not home, but has not had an accident in several weeks. Dexter has slept in a kennel a few times but prefers to sleep in bed. He loves to snuggle up to his person and never makes a sound. He is the perfect sleeper! Dexter truly is an amazing pug. He has the sweetest face and beautiful brown eyes that melt your heart. All he wants is to be with his humans and find a family ready to accept all the love he has to offer.





DexterPH ID: #329
Dexter is a fawn male. He is 6 years old and comes to us as an owner surrender. He is heartworm negative and in good health except for being overweight. He is now on a diet and we hope to have him fit & trim for the summer.





DiamondPH ID: #527
Diamond is a fawn female. She comes to us from a local puppy mill. She is 5 years old but her body has been through a lot in that time. She has now been spayed and is current on her vaccinations. She is heartworm negative.

From Diamond's foster: Meet Miss Diamond. She sure is a gem of a girl. Diamond came to us from a puppy mill, so she hasn't had a very good life thus far. It thankfully has not killed her spirit though. Now that she knows how a pug SHOULD be treated - she has really come around and is loving the attention. She has a sweet face with a tongue that partially sticks out about 95% of the time. She could melt you with her pouty look. She is a pretty calm gal, although she does have her moments that prompt her to zip around the back yard or roll around on her back. She recently has found the enjoyment of chewing on a bone - this is always such a special thing when puppy mill dogs learn what fun toys are! J She has also learned how nice it is to sleep on a big comfy bed! Diamond does very well with other dogs.

Diamond is heartworm negative, and overall very healthy. Her poor paws are pretty spread out from spending most of her life in a wire crate (with no bottom). The cysts that were between her toes are going away thankfully, and she is not in any pain. She is actually doing pretty well with housebreaking. She knows to go outside, but hasn't quite learned how to 'tell us' that she has to go. She's getting there though! She uses a piddle pad when we are gone during long periods of time, as we prefer not to crate her any more.

DickensPH ID: #4873
Dickens is a male from the Rio Grande Valley.

From Dickens & his foster: Hi, this is Dickens. I am a 5 year old little boy pug. I have been neutered and have had all my shots. I act more like a 2 year old, run circles, play tug-o-war, chase the cat, and chase my foster brother around. You get the picture. I live with a young foster brother Theo and a senior foster brother pug Wugi. They both like me; Theo plays with me and Wugi licks my ears and snuggles in the bed with me. I also have a half-foster sister Aussie named Sadie who plays with me too. I have loads of energy and can jump real high. I don’t do any puppy things like chew up shoes but I do love my toys! I have balls, bones and stuffed squeaky toys. I am very good in the house and go potty outside. I sleep in my very own bed in a kennel, but I think I’d like to sleep in a people bed too. I would be very good and just curl up and go to sleep. Right now I have my very own kennel I go in when my foster Mom is at work. I think I would be good in the house waiting until she got home, but she calls it safety insurance, whatever that is. Anyway, I have a very good appetite, and I’m very cute and very healthy. I would like a home with someone who wants to play with me. Other dogs would be fun and children would be fun too. Come to an event and meet me, or tell your adoption coordinator you want to meet me! I think you’ll like what you see. Love, Dickens

From Dickens' foster Mom: Dickens should not go to a home with a cat. The little dickens will torment the poor thing. Just ask Billy!





DieselPH ID: #486
Diesel is a black male. He comes to us from a local puppy mill. He is 4 years old. He will be checked out by our vet and neutered, then we will post an update on this gorgeous guy.





DiggerPH ID: #61
Meet Digger. Digger is a 2 year old fawn male. This little guy was picked up by animal control. When his owner failed to claim him, we were called to find him a new home. This cutie is in great health, with just a small ulcer to one of his eyes which is currently being treated and should present no further problems. He is heartworm negative and has been started on preventative. He has been neutered, microchipped and brought up to date on his vaccinations.

Digger seems to get on well with other dogs and certainly loves people - though he hates being crated (who can blame him?) He is a sweet boy with personality plus and such an expressive face. How can you resist him?






DillPH ID: #381
Dill is a Pug/Brussels Griffon mix male. Basically, he is a fuzzy Pug! He is about 1 year old. He is heartworm negative and in good health. He has been neutered, microchipped and brought up to date on his vaccinations.

Dill is a player and a cuddler. He loves to explore new places and people. He would do best in an active home with lots of people to play with him.





DiscoPH ID: #62
Disco is a 1 year old Pug mix. We're not sure what he's a mix of, but we can tell he's MOSTLY Pug! He was rescued from a local shelter just minutes from being euthanized. We could not let him be put down just because he isn't 100% Pug, so now he is with us and has a second chance! He is heartworm negative and appears to be in good health. He has been brought current on all of his vaccinations and microchipped.

As Disco is still a very young guy, he is very playful. He seems to be a happy guy who gets along with everyone.





DivaPH ID: #252
Diva is a 2 year old fawn female. She was an owner surrender due to her severe heartworm positive status. She has been brought current on her vaccinations and microchipped. She has been spayed.





DixiePH ID: #695
Dixie is a fawn female. She is 6 years old. She is an owner surrender. She is spayed, microchipped and current on her vaccinations. She is in excellent health. She is house broken and loves her doggie door. Dixie is a small pug with a big attitude and gets along well with other dogs and cats. She loves everyone especially kids.





DixiePH ID: #5272
Dixie is a 2-3 yr. old female from a poor living condition.

She is heartworm negative and scheduled to be spayed.

She is learning to trust humans and be an inside princess.

From Dixie's foster: Dixie is a 2 year old fawn female that came from deplorable conditions as a breeding dog. Considering where she was, she is adjusting very well to the pug life! Dixie mostly potties outside with the occasional accident inside. She gets along well with our male and female pugs and interacts well with both men and women. Regarding her health, Dixie has some skin irritations and has a special shampoo to help clear that up and she's using ear drops to treat an infection in both ears. She will also need to be spayed before she's ready to go home. Dixie is a gem of a pug and any family would be lucky to have her!





Dixie BellePH ID: #696
Dixie Belle is a black female. She was found as a stray with no tags or microchip. We believe she is between 1 to 3 years old. She is severe heartworm positive. She has been spayed, microchipped and brought current on her vaccinations.

From Dixie Belle's foster: Meet this little cutie, Dixie Belle! Dixie is about 3 years old and as you can see, is a beautiful little girl! She is playful and sweet, and loves to snuggle with her people. She does get along well with other dogs, but she does tend to have alpha tendencies, so would do better with more laid back, submissive dogs. Dixie is perfectly house trained - she'll even let you know when she has to go outside. Dixie is heartworm positive, and has started the treatment process. This little beauty will make a great addition to your home!!





DobbyPH ID: #4464
Dobby is a 5 yr old fawn male. He was living outside and his family could no longer care for him.

he is heartworm negative and looking for his forever family.

Update from Dobby's foster: He is no longer itchy and fur is growing back on his bare bottom and back spots. He is an awesome 5 year old boy, a perfect combo of playful and snuggly. He won't last long now that he's ready for adoption.





DocPH ID: #763
Doc is a 4 year old fawn male. He was found wandering the streets with no tags or microchip. He is in overall good health; he is heartworm negative. He was found with really itchy skin and seems to have a flea allergy but now that he is free from fleas he is feeling much better.

From Doc's foster: Doc a sweet boy. He's a skinny guy right now, but he works on hard on correcting that every time he eats! He isn't very interested in toys, but he likes playing with other dogs, and he absolutely adores children. He is very focused on people and belly rubs and thinks pug kisses aren't worth the bother if he can't give them directly on your face! He loves carrots and knows he has to sit to get one, but he has no idea why I say, "What's up, Doc?" before I give him one. His favorite place is wherever in the house I am. Doc would love a forever family with children.





DodgePH ID: #4437
Meet Dodge! Dodge is a handsome, 2-3 year old male who was found dodging traffic on a busy road. Thankfully someone stopped to help this little dude to safety! We aren’t too sure of his past life..but after a couple of days in foster care, he’s made himself right at home. He plays with the other dogs, loves bones, and loves the attention of his humans. He’s a smaller, uniquely colored guy – with big eyes that will melt anyone’s heart! He crates up when we leave and at night, but he does prefer the big bed with his humans as most puggies do J He’s mostly housebroken – still wants to mark some, but he was just neutered, so that should stop soon. He is healthy, happy and ready for his own family!

Dodge has an adoption pending.





DodgerPH ID: #802
Dodger is a very sweet affectionate dog, who appears to be a mix between a dachshund and a pug. He is very strong, energetic and muscular, especially in his hind legs. He tends to pull on the leash and loves to go fast, so he definitely needs a harness. He loves to walk, and is the leader of the pack. As you can see from the photos his nails are very short, he gets a lot of traction on the cement. Dodger is great around other dogs, size does not matter, from Great Danes to Chihuahuas. However, Dodger does not get along well with cats. Friendly with children too and likes to kiss.

Dodger loves to play with the toys and especially likes tug-of-war with the other pugs. He enjoys playing fetch with tennis balls, and he likes to mouth a soft toy when he has settled in his bed. He likes to chew on Nylabones, however he has not chewed on anything else. He appears fully house trained, and will go to the door after eating, wanting to go outside. I have noticed he likes to try to go under fences/gate, especially if there is another dog on the other side. Perhaps that is how he got loose in the beginning.

He likes to chase squirrels and I believe he can catch one if he wasn't on a leash. Unlike a pug, he likes to walk on wet grass, and if there is a puddle will wade and take a drink.

He does not snore, and has been happy sleeping in the office with Jake at night. He tolerated the dietary change well and is the only dog I have ever seen that can eat faster than one of my pugs.





DollyPH ID: #63
Dolly is a 5 year old fawn female. This sweet girl is an owner surrender through no fault of her own. Her momma has had to go into assisted living and that means Dolly must find a new momma. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on all of her vaccinations. She has a slight ear infection right now but that is being treated. She is in otherwise good health, though it appears that she hasn't been taken care of quite as well as she should have. A little TLC will take care of that though.

Dolly is a very good girl. Right now she is a bit reserved - probably since she's unsure of what is going on. But she is quite curious and not afraid to check new things out. She is housebroken and though she was an only dog, she does get along beautifully with other dogs. She would do well as either an only dog or as part of a group. All Dolly really needs is someone who wants to love on her and make sure she gets the attention and TLC she deserves.

DominoPH ID: #832
Domino is a black male. He comes to us from a local shelter. We believe he is about 3-4 years old. He is heartworm positive and currently has some skin issues that we are treating.

We will post a full bio once he has settled into his foster home.

From Domino's foster: If you saw the pictures of Domino when he came in you would never know that he is the same pug. His eyes had green gunk dried on the actual eyeball and he had huge flakes of skin falling off his back where the bare spots were! He was a total mess!

What a difference a few weeks makes!!! The mole was removed from his forehead, his eyes are cleaned up and his hair is growing back quickly. Not once through this whole process has he been anything other than happy and a true pug. He is an absolute doll!!! He wasn’t very keen to be cuddled when I first got him, he would lay on the couch next to me but wasn’t comfortable on my lap. Last night I had to put him down every time I got up because the first thing he does now is jump on my lap when I sit down. There have been absolutely no problems with him, he is very well behaved with the other dogs and he hasn’t been rude in the house one time!!! I totally love this guy!!!

As a result of his lack of care the dry eye has taken its toll on his vision. He is visually impaired, but I will be quick to point out he’s not blind. He sees just fine to follow me around the house, go outside, come back in. He didn’t even have navigation issues when he first came to me. However, if you want a dog that will sit and read you a book, he’s not your guy.

But on the other hand, if you want a BEAUTIFUL black pug that will adore you for the rest of his life, Domino is your guy!





DonaldPH ID: #955
Donald is a fawn male. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From Donald's foster: Donald is just wonderful! He is very petite, even for a pug, which makes him extra easy to cuddle with. He also has a really cute little bark- it almost sounds muted! Currently he is dealing with a skin condition, heartworms, and some back issues. He also limps a little bit on one of his back legs, which makes it difficult for him to walk long distances, but he can get around the block just fine. Even with these few medical issues, which are being treated as we speak, Donald is just perfect!

Donald is coming out of his shell, but I think he will always be a little bit shy. Instead of jumping on your lap, he is the kind of dog who will follow you at a distance and stare sweetly at you until you pet him. He has nothing but love to give! He is good around adults, children, and other dogs (though he doesn't play with my other dogs very much). He is house trained, crate trained, and walks well on a leash.

The family who is lucky enough to adopt Donald can look forward to a lifetime of happiness and love!





DonnerPH ID: #3313
Donner is a fawn male. He is about a year and a half old. He is heartworm negative. He is currently suffering from mange but is on medication and should clear soon. He is neutered, microchipped and current on his vaccinations.

From Donner's foster: He is a happy little guy who loves to snuggle with humans and other dogs. He likes to play and be a part of the action. When everyone settles down he goes and snuggles with his foster siblings. He is getting very attached to Bonnie and Clyde! He will want to be part of an active family. I am certain he will want a brother or sister. He barks at the coffee grinder, hair dryer, vacuum, or any other thing that makes noise. But he is getting used to these things and settling into the group very well.





DonovanPH ID: #4797
Donovan is a 4-5 yr old pug mix. He was found wandering up the on ramp for I-45 and a good person thought it was a bad idea.

They called PugHearts and he was taken to safety.

From Donovan's foster: Donovan is a handsome pug mix who is HW- and neutered. He is ready to find his fur-ever home. He gets along with our girls and foster male. He has great manners and is house broken. He likes to play and take walks.





Doodle BugPH ID: #746
Doodle Bug is a fawn female. She comes to us from a local animal control facility. We believe she is about 3 years old. She is heartworm positive and will begin treatment shortly. She is a petite girl at only 12 lbs but she is full of spirit.





DoriPH ID: #674
Dori is a fawn female. She was found with no tags or microchip. We believe she is about 3 years old. She is heartworm negative. She has been brought current on her vaccinations and microchipped. She will be spayed prior to placement.

From Dori's foster: She is a gem. She is a super sweet, well-rounded little girl. I feel like I can't say enough good things about her, when I first got her she was shy and leery of a lot of things and now she has opened up and just has so much love to give. She is very playful with my other dogs, and she also likes to cuddle with them and with me. She sleeps on the bed with me, she likes to dig herself under the covers and curl up right next to me. She can't jump onto the bed herself so we have a game we play, I kneel down and she comes and runs into my arms like I'm her prince charming. She is house broken and knows how to use the dog door, she is a very well mannered little girl, I never have to fuss at her. Anyone who takes this beautiful little girl home will be lucky to have such a beauty, inside and out, living with them.





DoriPH ID: #4835
Dori is a 2 yr old fawn female.

She is heartworm negative and already spayed.

Dot is a young fawn lady that comes to PugHearts with her friend Dash. They join our family due to changes in their previous home.

These 2 are very bonded and will only be adopted together.





DougPH ID: #565
This is Doug the Pug. He is a 4 year old fawn male. He was an owner surrender. He is in good health; he is heartworm negative, neutered and current on his vaccinations. He is happy and VERY active! He is working on his house manners and will need some reinforcement. He is ready for his new home and new life!





DougiePH ID: #65
Dougie is a sweet little fawn puppy who is estimated to be about 5 months old. He was found wandering the streets and taken to a local animal shelter. He has been brought up to date on all of his vaccinations, microchipped and will be neutered before placement.

Right now Dougie is suffering from a severe case of demodectic mange. Dougie is on antibiotics and is receiving medicated baths to help clear his skin. He has tested negative for worms and, thankfully, heartworms. He is now on heartworm preventative.

Now that Dougie is feeling better, we can see the puppy in him coming out to play! He is a sweet little character who is full of mischief and playfulness - just as a puppy should be. Of course he isn't housetrained and he doesn't follow commands too well, but that is to be expected given his age. Dougie needs someone who will treat him just like any other puppy - because underneath he IS like any other puppy. He needs a lot of love, caring and patience so he can grow to be your best friend.





DougiePH ID: #3315
Dougie is a black male. He is 8 years old. He is heartworm negative. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From Dougie's foster: Meet Dougie the Puggie! This little guy is a dream come true, and quite honestly, the apple of my eye. I've been told he is about 8 years old and his heart worm negative. Doug enjoys napping in the sun, snuggling with his foster mom and FOOD! While he spends a great deal of his day being lazy and napping, he also loves a good game of tug on the toys.

Dougie gets along well with everyone including other dogs and children. He is the sweetest and most gentle pug we have ever had. Doug is completely housebroken and has recently figured out how to use the doggie door. Doug is also crate trained. And while he would love the chance to sleep with his people at night, he willingly goes in his crate with NO whining or crying. In fact, I never hear a peep out of him the entire time he is crated.

Dougie's greatest joy is simply being around his people, snuggling close, and being loved on. Every time I reach over to pet him, he rewards me with the most gentle and loving kisses. He is truly a special little guy and deserves a special family to call his own.





DrogoPH ID: #5316
Drogo is a 3 yr old male that comes to PugHearts from a shelter in the Rio Grande Valley.



Drogo came to us from the Valley and was in pretty bad condition. He had skin and eye issues that have mostly resolved. He had some pretty horrible eyes, but one has really cleared up well and he can see out of it. I believe he is blind in the other one. He had sores all over this body but that has also cleared up, he is beginning to grow hair back and in a few more weeks will start to look like a pug should. The only hurtle we have left now is to get the little guy to gain some weight. He’s a little pug to begin with but he’s very thin. However he eats like a horse so it’s only a matter of time before he starts to bulk up.



Unlike his namesake, Drogo does not have a dominant or aggressive gene in his DNA. He is the most gentle and loving little guy. He does like to play with the other pugs but if given the choice he prefers to curl up on my lap or next to me on the arm of the couch. He does seem to like having other dogs around him but I think with the right amount of attention he could do exceptionally well in a home without dogs. He has never been around children but I think he would be GREAT with them. He’s just so sweet I think he would be a good companion for little ones. He will be at the events beginning on September 30 so please come on out to meet him. You just may meet the King of your Heart.





DruePH ID: #923
Drue is a fawn male. He comes to us from a local shelter. We believe he is 9 or 10 years old. He is heartworm negative. He does appear to have an old injury to his jaw which leaves his tongue hanging out below his mouth. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From Drue's foster: Drue, a sweet, gentle older gentleman of about 9 or 10. Life hasn’t been the kindest to him over the years. He’s a beautiful pug, the greatest wrinkles I’ve seen in a long time. And the tongue hanging out is precious, and so very heartbreaking. His tongue isn’t hanging out because he’s lost a few teeth like most pugs. Drue’s tongue is hanging out because his jaw was broken quite a long time ago and it wasn’t taken care of and now no matter how much PugHearts wants to fix it, we can’t. He will never be able to chew on bones or play with toys or do any of the things that regular pugs do because of his jaw.

But the one thing, the most important thing Drue can do is love you. He is so very loving, he wants to be on the couch and close to you at all times. He’s even beginning to let me kiss his cheek. I’m not even going to try to figure out why he’s so head shy, I’m sure it’s not something I want to know. What is important now is that Drue is in a happy place. He’s running around with his tail wagging and his personality is starting to come through. I’m really excited to see what he’s going to be like once he’s convinced he’s safe and just be who he is.

Drue won’t be a pug for someone to adopt that wants to play tug o war or have him run after toys and bring them back to you. Drue will be the most fantastic pug for someone to adopt that will be happy being adored by such a great little guy. He is a very pretty pug, he has a great body and his coat is thick and soft. He does have dry eye that will need to have daily drops but that’s not really a big deal, nor is it expensive. He’s also housetrained. All in all he’s pretty special. It will take someone very special to be Drue’s family, are you the one he will give all his love to? If you are you will be extremely lucky!





DuchessPH ID: #5281
Duchess is a sweet girl that has been living outside in the heat.

From Duchess' foster: Duchess is a 5ish black female that was being kept outside, in Texas, in July :-( She has adapted exceptionally well to being in a home with AC and beds. Her skin issues have almost completely resolved and the bleached out hair on her back and rear end is almost completely gone now.

Duchess is a super loving girl. She is almost constantly next to me or on my lap, a velco pug. As you probably expect from her living situation she has heartworms. She will be treated and be ready to find her forever home sometime in November. She just seems to be so grateful to be cared for and in a home. 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.

~

Duchess is pending adoption. Congratulations Holly!





DudleyPH ID: #1060
Dudley is a young black male that came to us due to medical issues in the home. He came to us neutered and is heartworm negative. He has been microchipped and brought current on his vaccinations.

From Dudley's foster: Dudley is a young black male. He loves to cuddle as well as play. He's a smart boy and figured out the doggy door in no time and knows how to Sit. He gets along well with other dogs & children. He loves to go and rides well in the car. He has a little bit of food aggression and is quick to grab a treat out of your hand. He has some marking issues which we are working on, but otherwise he is house trained.

Dudley is a good boy who deserves a loving forever home. Do you have room in your heart and home for Dudley?





DudleyPH ID: #66
Dudley is a fawn male. He is 5 years old. He was an owner surrender through no fault of his own. He is heartworm negative. He is current on his vaccinations, microchipped and neutered.

Dudley came to us with an injury to his tail which required partial amputation. However, that has healed beautifully and he is now ready for adoption. He is a sweet boy who loves soft toys. Playing fetch and tug of war are his favorites. He walks wel on a lead and is housetrained. He gets on well with other dogs but isn't much for playing with them. He prefers to have love and attention of a human for a companion.





DukePH ID: #613
Duke is a black male. He is 8 years old. He is an owner surrender through no fault of his own. He is in excellent health. He is heartworm negative. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From Duke's foster: Duke appears to have spent a good amount of time alone because he feels most secure right now in his dog pen area. We can leave the door to the pen open and he will go in on his own. Duke needed to work on house manners in the first few days of joining his foster home but he has learned the dog door and has made fast progress in that area. Sweet dog who loves to be near his humans but is not interacting terribly much with the other 4 dogs in the house. He absolutely loves going on walks and we are totaling 1 mile a day since he could stand to lose a pound or two. He just wants to do what a pug loves to do, and that is to be a companion to his human family.

Update on Duke: Duke has lost a pound with his twice daily walks and is looking great. He spends more time with the other dogs in the house than before but still likes spending time with his humans best. I can see him as a wonderful companion dog to an individual or couple who are home at least part-time. LOVES to sit right up beside me on the sofa.

Duke is a fawn male. He was an owner surrender with his companion Maggie. He is about 8 years old. He is heartworm negative, neutered and in excellent health.

From Duke & Maggie's foster: Duke is such a sweetheart! He is so adorable to watch; he has the perfect show pug stance and the cinnabon tail. He has gorgeous coloring on his face. He's a stocky boy - not fat, but very teddy bear like. He is an excellent cuddler. He craves affection and attention and will jump up on your lap if given half a chance. He is completely bonded with Maggie. He loves toys, especially soft ones. He is good around other animals and doesn't even notice our cat. He loves to sleep on the bed with humans. He sometimes gets a little jealous of others but all he's looking for is a little reassurance that he is loved too. He is a champ at the doggie door and loves to spend time laying out in the yard.

Duke is just looking for a forever home that he can share with his best gal Maggie.





DukePH ID: #5382
Duke is a young male from the Rio Grande Valley. He will be seen by the vet and we will update soon.





DumplingPH ID: #5219
This sweet little Dumpling comes to PugHearts looking for love.

She is a middle aged lady that will see our vet and update her fans soon.

From Dumpling's foster: Dumpling is a very sweet 7-year old female fawn pug. While we aren't exactly sure of her age, she definitely acts much younger. She has a lot of energy and enjoys going on walks with her human. Dumpling is crate trained, potty trained and gets along well with other dogs and children. She needs an owner who doesn't mind having a dog who will follow you from room-to-room...because she will follow you room-to-room...every single time. She's a very happy and healthy girl who is ready to become part of a permanent home.





DumplingPH ID: #4916
Dumpling is a 6 yr old female from a local shelter.

She is heartworm negative and has an undeveloped eye.

She is currently on a diet, as she came in a bit "fluffy"






DuncanPH ID: #462
Duncan is a fawn male. He was found without any tags or microchip wandering with another dog. We believe he is about 4 years old. He is suffering from a bad case of demodectic mange for which he is undergoing treatment. He is heartworm negative. He has been brought current on vaccinations and microchipped. He has been neutered.

From Duncan's foster: Duncan is a fun little guy with a big heart! He has quite a bit of energy but at the same time, settles down quickly when its cuddle time on the couch (he is a great cuddler). He came to us 100% potty-trained and knowing how to sit for food and treats. He is happiest with a nylabone in his mouth playing keep-away from the other dogs. He attached himself pretty quickly to one of my pugs and they are now inseparable. He would probably do best in a multiple dog home. He doesn't bark much, but when he does you find yourself asking "When did we get a Labrador?" Once his mange clears up, we know he will be a very beautiful puggie. In fact, we think he already is. How could you resist that face?





DustinPH ID: #67
Dustin is a handsome fawn male. He is 3 years old. He was an owner surrender through no fault of his own. He is in excellent health. He has been brought current on vaccinations, microchipped and neutered.

Dustin is a sweet boy who hasn't received all the care and TLC he should have. Since he was an only dog and hasn't been socialized much, he is a bit anxious about being around other dogs and people. Though he is adapting well and seems to be coming out of his shell. Also since he has just been neutered, he is still a bit 'amorous' with the ladies but that should settle down soon. He would do well in a home as an only dog or with one or two siblings. He also really responds well to men, so a male owner or co-owner would be preferred. Of course all of this could change now that he is in foster care and is being exposed to new situations. We will update his profile as we discover how he responds to his new life.





DustyPH ID: #4351
Dusty is a fawn male. He is about 7 years old. He comes to us from a local animal control facility. He is heartworm negative and already neutered.

From Dusty's foster: I am a fawn-colored male, about 6 years old, named Dusty. I am healthy, neutered, microchipped, and current on my vaccinations. I was an owner surrender, but I don't know why, I am potty trained, crate trained, leash trained and stay off the human furniture. I REALLY love walks and get so excited when the humans bring out the leashes, that I hop around and make cute barky sounds. I don't hear very well, and probably never have, but I take direction by hand signals well. I have even learned to sit for treats and meals. I follow my humans, especially the male humans, all around the house. I don't mind cats and low energy dogs, but get very flustered, when excited dogs get close to my face. I am a very independent male but secretly enjoy and good bubble bath from time-to-time since they always come with-- my favorite-- good back and ear scratches! I am a little lover looking to please my forever humans.





DustyPH ID: #4467
Absolute Perfection, minus perfect hearing, and you have Dusty. Its truly the only thing that is wrong with this sweet boy. At 8 years old he is the most laid back boy and is an absolute angel. He likes to hang out in the kennel (with the door open) and sleep the day away .. or maybe on a bed in the living room … or maybe on the couch next to you. He is really all about options. Leash him up for a walk and he gets so excited he will talk to you and tell you how excited he is. He is a big talker .. but not in a bad way. He really only gets overly vocal when he needs to go out and gets along with all the other dogs in the house. He likes kids too.



Dusty is truly a gem for any household looking for a relaxed pug to add to their environment!






DylanPH ID: #4563
Dylan is a young pug mix that was attacked by other dogs. He was cared for by kind neighbors and given medical care for his wounds.

From Dylan's foster: Dylan is a pug mix but don’t tell him that. His perfect curly little pug tail isn’t the only pug trait that he has. Just like any other pug, Dylan is a snuggle bunny who prefers to spend half his day snoozing away. (preferably snuggled up next to his human or furry family members). From the day he arrived at my house, Dylan has fit right in with the pug pack following their every move, and sharing their beds at night. But the other 50% of the time Dylan is an energetic, playful puppy, full of energy. He LOVES stuffed animals (he usually takes one to bed every night and greets you with one when you walk through the door) and he LOVES being outside and going on walks. Dylan has tons of energy and would be a great jogging partner or playmate for some little humans. Dylan’s had a tough life, but he would never let you know that. He’s a good protector, but he gets along with all creatures, human and furry, that walk through the door. Dylan has quickly learned what sleeping in a warm soft bed is like and as you can see in the photos, when he’s not playing or running around outside, he’s learned that he LOVES to snuggle up and take a snooze. We jokingly call him our teenager because he’d love to go out and play all night, and he LOVES sleeping in in the morning. He’s 100% potty trained, knows some simple commands, and listens very well. He has all the funny, outgoing characteristics of being a puppy, with all the discipline of an older guy. He’s the best of both worlds! Dylan has survived being shot, being attacked by other dogs, broken bones, and living on the street. But he exemplifies what makes dogs so special. He doesn’t hold any of that against anyone. He’s the happiest, funniest, and most grateful and loving guy. He would LOVE to be with a family and would make a great friend for your little one. He just needs someone to love him.





EarlPH ID: #405
Earl is a black male. He is about 1 year old. He comes to us from a local animal control as he was picked up in an animal cruelty investigation. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From his foster: Earl is a very sweet, gentle little pug. He was a cruelty case and so he isn't as outgoing as most pugs but he has improved drastically from the shaking ball of black fur I picked up from the vet. However, he is the most loving little guy; he will take all the hugs and kisses he can get. As cute as he is in his pictures, he's even more cute in person. He looks at me with such intelligence in his eyes that I really wish he could tell me what he's thinking. I know we could have some really good conversations. He does like to play but he's not over the top. Earl seems to know that he's going to be in a good place from now on and he's doing very well in all areas. He seems to be housetrained and he doesn't bark or lick. He's very fond of jumping in bed at night and settling down for the night, that didn't take him long to learn at all. He has to go through the HW treatment but if you will wait until he's healthy you'll be a very lucky human to have him. Like the saying goes, Good things come to those who wait.





EbonyPH ID: #3231
Ebony is a female brindle pug mix. She appears to be a "Bug" or a Pug & Boston Terrier mix. She is 3 - 4 years old. She is in good health; she is heartworm negative. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on her vaccinations.

From Ebony's foster: Ebony is a precious brindle bug, the pug in her is the dominant part of her personality. She is incredibly sweet and a very laid back girl. She gets along great with the other dogs in the house. She is crate trained and as long as she is taken out regularly she is accident free. She does prefer people to other pups, she's a snuggler, but also has an independent side and sometimes just likes to sleep on a chair on the other side of the room sleeping and observing the goings on. Ebony is truly a wonderful little girl that deserves a wonderful home of her own.





EbonyPH ID: #4424
Ebony is a black female Chihuahua mix. She came to us from a shelter in the valley. She is heartworm positive and just stopped nursing a litter of pups.





EddiePH ID: #5210
Meet Eddie an 8 years old male brought to Winnie vet clinic to be put to sleep because he has heartworms. Thankfully the office called us! He is current on vaccinations. He will be going through heartworm treatment prior to adoption.

From Eddie's foster: Eddie 8 was a very skinny and sick owner surrender. He was severe heartworm positive and went into treatment as soon as he gained enough weight to go through it. He had a couple rough weeks after the treatment and as if it all wasn't enough he got bronchitis.

Eddie pulled through and is recovering beautifully. He knows sit and he is a violent snuggler - he will throw himself on you and rub himself as hard as he can as if this was the first time he ever got to snuggle and needed to get the best out of it.

EdithPH ID: #3186
Edith is a fawn female. She is about 5 or 6 years old. She came to us in poor condition and heavily pregnant. She delivered her litter mid-July; sadly no pups survived. She is heartworm positive and will begin treatment shortly; she has already been treated for her skin and ear infections. She is now ready to focus on getting herself healthy and moving forward with her new life.

From Edith's foster: Everyone, let me introduce Edith, an tiny 5 yr old Pug mix. It appears she may have some mini-dachshund in her family tree. Edith had been fending for herself for sometime, and was pregnant and scrawny when we took her in. She delivered 5 puppies; sadly, they did not survive She was a bit depressed when I first brought her home, but she has blossomed into an active, affectionate little lady!. Edith has been spayed, but she is Heartworm positive; she will be available for adoption by October/November. She is a very special little girl. She is eating well, and gaining a few extra pounds. Our 4 pack accepted her immediately, and she is completely house trained. She is happy to sleep under the bed covers, but also sleeps in the kitchen at night with no objection. She is a cuddle bug. Loves to play and chase toys and balls, and tries to engage my couch potato Pugs to play with her! This adorable little sprite would love to have children to run and play with, another active canine sibling to spar with, or anyone that wants to play ! Edith has shown no aggression with my 4 Pugs, and has learned that she cannot try to attack my parrot's cage with a simple "stop" command. Edith (or Edith Ann, as I call her), is a cutie patootie! Who ever adopts her will never regret their decision.





EdwardPH ID: #5055
Edward is an 8 yr old fawn male. He is heartworm negative and is scheduled for his neuter and dental.

Edward has bad knees, but is otherwise healthy.






EdwinPH ID: #4948

He has a long way to go to be healthy, but we will be there with him all the way.





EdwinPH ID: #5318
Edwin comes to PugHearts looking for a forever family due to changes in his current home.



Meet Edwin! He's a 1.5 year old, energetic little guy that loves playing fetch and chewing on his nylabone. He's heartworm negative and already housebroken. He gets along great with humans & other dogs (even larger dogs)! He doesn't prefer it, but he'll do his business while it's raining. He hasn't had any accidents in his crate so far, but he will whine when he's first left alone because he LOVES being around people. Right now he's working on mastering commands like "sit" & "stay." Edwin is a quick learner (with the help of some treat motivation) & would make a great addition to any family!








EinsteinPH ID: #5086
Meet Einstein. He is a 4 yr old male from the Rio Grande valley. He comes to PugHearts with sarcoptic mange and is already feeling better with treatment. He is heartworm negative and has the most beautiful eyes.





EinsteinPH ID: #768
Einstein is a fawn male. He comes to us from a local animal control facility. We believe he is about 4 years old. He is severe heartworm positive and will begin treatment shortly. He is neutered, microchipped and up to date on his vaccinations.

From Einstein's foster: Einstein is a very happy and adorable boy. He is very easy going and easy to enjoy. He's very bright (hence the name) and when he isn't contemplating relativity or thermodynamics, he's engaged in making himself a fixture in our household. He gets along perfectly with our pug Dot (and she's not all that easy to get along with). He is very gentle and super cuddly. He loves sleeping on my bed and he doesn't snore! Einstein is eager to please and so well behaved. He waits for permission before coming in from outside or jumping on the couch.

Each day I'm finding myself blown away by this super awesome pug. Just today I discovered that Einstein has mad dance moves, he adds spinning to his 'tuck-butt-and-run' dash. It's so funny I fall over laughing. He's brilliant and wonderfully silly at the same time.






EleanorPH ID: #2146
Eleanor is an fawn female. She comes to us from a local animal control facility. We believe she is 6 to 8 years old. She came to us with an upper respiratory infection and skin issues. She is heartworm negative.

From Eleanor's foster: When she got to our home she slept for two days. One thing she does like is stuffed animals and will let it be known when one of the others plays with one, she will scream and go and fight for it. We are working on this. It took her a couple of days to use the doggie door but has no problem now. She is shy going up and down the steps to the bed by herself so we are working on that. One other dramatic observation about Eleanor is she comes with enough skin for two dogs. It's unbelievable and as we watch her walk we can tell it is heavy, but she gets around pretty good. She has some surgery to go thru like being spayed, having skin reduction, removing a tumor from her back leg. We are thankful that she is heart worm negative! She loves to cuddle, be held and sleep in her doggie bed as well as the human bed and get her halter on and go away. She loves our special needs daughter and gets all excited when company shows up. She is learning and really has no problem getting along with the other pugs except when they have a stuffed animal. She is currently getting a special bath every other day due to a yeast infection on her skin, that has made it black and after four baths we are seeing pink skin start to peek through. YAY! When she sees a towel she gets all excited. She is a joy and we are pleased she is with our family.

Update: Eleanor had her surgery to remove some of the excess skin she was carrying around. The doctor removed a pound of skin over the hip area that resulted in many stitches. She also had an episiotomy done, and a growth removed from her right back leg. She came home a day after surgery to a crate that she howled in the first night. We soon figured out how to make her more comfortable in there as she healed. She is now healed and doing wonderfully. She wiggles her hips when she walks cause she knows she is looking good and the weight is gone. I don't have a reason as to why she had this excess skin except that she was born with it. Her personality has emerged more and more now. She is getting around much better, so much that she now climbs the steps up and down to the bed. This has been a extraordinary issue with Eleanor and it has been a great success. As for her yeast problems on her belly and chest, with medicated shampoos everyother day the hair has grown back in those places and her skin is not black but more pink is showing through. I am pretty sure this little gal is going to become part of our family cause she is simply amazing!





EliPH ID: #68
Eli is a sweet fawn male pup. He is just 12 months old. Poor little Eli has had a rough start to life. He came to us from a local animal shelter where he had been found wandering the streets. He appears to have been hit by a car as he has a fracture to his left leg and his jaw has been broken in 2 places. It appears that his jaw is healing and he has no difficulty eating or playing. Our vet is evaluating the leg injury to see if surgical repair is needed. He is currently suffering from a skin condition which will resolve with medicated baths. His fur will grow back in no time. Eli is heartworm negative and is current on his vaccinations. He has been neutered.

Despite all that Eli has been through, he still is a happy, loving, playful boy. He is housebroken and eager to please. He will follow you everywhere and just wants to be loved.





ElizaPH ID: #871
Eliza is a fawn female. She is 7 years old. She is in good health; she is heartworm negative. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on her vaccinations.

From her foster: Eliza is one happy-go-lucky girl. One of my own is a bit of a grumpy old man and for the most part usually just tolerates the fosters, well she has brought out his playful, friendly side. We call her his girlfriend, they love to wrestle for hours. She is so sweet and kind and doesn't have a mean bone in her body. She is potty trained, she loves her meal times, her playtimes and her cuddling time. She is just all around a great girl! Whoever gets her will fall in love with her as quickly as we did, I'm sure!





ElizaPH ID: #5256
Eliza was found running loose all by herself and was so scared she had to be trapped.

She is now very happy to have a safe place to sleep. Eliza is 2 years old and, luckily, heartworm negative.

From Eliza's foster: Eliza is a 2 year old fawn pug wandering the streets in Baytown for over a month. She was very scared at first but has blossomed into a beautiful lady. It is obvious she has had a litter or two. She is a velcro pug and appears to love the men. She is very vocal when you come home and is happy to see you. She can be food aggressive, so she eats in the crate. She loves to sleep at the foot of the bed. She is a very obedient girl and can follow some commands. She loves to walk into the shower with you. She wants to be on your lap or beside you when sitting on the couch or recliner. She is having her spay on July 17 then will be ready that weekend. She is a treasure, almost perfect. She knows how to use the doggy door and never had an accident in the house. She loves greek yogurt and mango.





EllaPH ID: #4914
Ella is a sweet female that was found all alone suffering from a broken leg. The leg appears to have been broken for some time and a bone fragment was causing her some significant pain in that leg.

Ella is under the care of our vet and we will update as she moves through treatment.

From Ella's foster: Ella is a fawn female who is HW-, microchipped & up to date on her vaccinations. She came to PugHearts as a stray and we thought she had been hit by a car. As it turns out, she has an older break that has caused a painful lump on her front leg. She has been receiving pain relief therapy while being evaluated to see if she will need surgery.

Ella is young, playful & full of energy which makes it difficult to keep her calm while her leg heals. She is very smart & quick to learn. She can use the doggy door & play fetch which indicates that someone in her past loved her.

She will nake a great pet for someone that has the time & energy to spend walking & playing with her, once she has been spayed and finished her leg treatment/evaluation.





EllaPH ID: #446
Ella is a fawn female. She came to us from an out of state puppy mill where she was used for breeding. She is 5 years old. She did have hookworms but those have been treated. She is in surprisingly good health for a dog forced to live outside. She is heartworm negative. She has been spayed, microchipped and brought current on her vaccinations. Though she is in pretty good health physically, she is typical of puppy mill survivors in that she is quite timid and frightened of strangers. She will need a family who can gently teach her what it is like to be part of a loving family.





ElliePH ID: #307
Ellie is a black female. She was an owner surrender through no fault of her own. Though she is only 1 year old, she was surrendered to us just after giving birth to a litter of puppies. She was surrendered without her pups. She will be spayed prior to placement. She is in good health and is heartworm negative. She has been microchipped and is current on her vaccinations.





ElliePH ID: #1064
Eleanor Louise Van Volkenberg IV, Esq, aka Ellie, is a tiny 5 year old spitfire who is full of love and devotion. After being treated like the princess she is, she now weighs in a mere 14 lbs [up from the 11 when we first got her]. She is the girl who will sleep right next to you or on top of you and is a late sleeper preferring to get out of bed at the last minute. She gets along with other dogs and will give the others a bark to regulate them when there is excitement. She will also give you a little yap during feeding time to say she is ready to eat. She is house trained [she uses a doggie door] and will get down to business quick but she really enjoys if you go outdoors with her.

Ellie has been diagnosed with a collapsed trachea so she will need to be kept on meds the rest of her life to help and her time outdoors should be kept at a minimum [heat causes her to cough more].

She has completed heartworm treatment and will be spayed then will be ready for a loving home.





ElliePH ID: #4751
Ellie is a 9 year old female. She was surrendered to PugHearts due to illness of her family.

From Ellie's foster: Ellie is an owner surrender due to illness in the family. She is a super great girl. Ellie is a little on the fluffy side, she needs to lose several pounds. But she is so extremely sweet, she loves to get attention and she almost wiggles out of her skin. She is HW-, house trained and gets along with the other fosters with one exception: Ellie is possessive of toys. So she will need to have a strong owner who she knows will not allow her to try to take toys away from other pets. In fact, I think Ellie would be just fine if she was the only one around … getting all your attention and all the toys!

She will make her Pughearts debut this weekend so stop by the events and say hello to her. She will make a wonderful companion for some lucky person.





ElliePH ID: #4487
Ellie is a fawn female, 8 year old owner surrender. She came to us with her sister Polly.

From Ellie (with some help from her foster): Name is Ellie and I am between 8-9 years old. I love playing with other pugs. I have a sister but I don't mind joining an established family without her, in fact I am the personality of the two of us. I do tend to be a finicky eater, actually they say I am allergic to chicken and wheat which causes my ears to become very itchy. Benadryl works to help these allergies, so don't let that bother you. I also like the treats and will stand on my hind legs and do a little dance for one if I can get past the others. Did I mention I am house broken and can use a pet door nicely? Weighing in at 17 lbs keeps me looking good. What is stopping you? Come see me, you are going to love me!





Ellie 2PH ID: #416
Ellie is a fawn female. She comes to us from a local animal control facility. We believe she is about 3 years old. She appears to be in good health. She is heartworm negative. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on her vaccinations.

From Ellie's foster: Ellie is a very sweet, gentle little girl, and a fine example of what a beautiful Pug looks like! She gets along well with her new furry family as well as her human family. She is one of the first pugs I have ever taken care of that doesn't have a big appetite. She just nibbles at her food and makes it last quite a while. She has eye medicine that needs to be put in her eyes twice a day and she is beginning to become use to this. It takes them a while to learn that you aren't going to hurt them when you are taking care of their eyes.

When she first arrived it took her a day or so to get use to the large number of other dogs, she was quite intimidated by the enthusiam they displayed at meeting her and she growled at them occassionally. She has gotten over that hurdle now and is quite comfortable. She is very partial to me, she loves to be close to me at all times. She doesn't play very much, she just wants to have human contact. She will be a great companion for someone that wants a beautiful cuddle bunny. She will do well as an only pet or with a brother or sister.





ElliotPH ID: #4840
Elliot is a 3 year old male owner surrender heart worm negative neutered. Elliot is a sweet little boy that loves people and gets along great with other dogs. Elliot likes to go on walks and play he will follow his people around the house. He is a sweet little lover boy looking for a home that will love him forever.





ElliottPH ID: #5224
Elliott comes to PugHearts from a local shelter.

He has multiple bite wounds on his back and torso. Elliott was already missing one eye. He is, happily, heartworm negative.

This sweet guy has seen the vet and is under medical care for his wounds.





EllisPH ID: #5260
Ellis is a young male that comes to PugHearts after being dumped in a neighborhood. Lucky for him, a nice person found him and called us.

He is heartworm negative, has dry eye that will require eye drops for life, and an ear infection that is being treated.

From Ellis' foster: Hey everyone I'm Ellis. I'm a young little boy at only 18 months and I'm heart worm negative. All I need is my neuter and I will be ready for my forever home. I am potty trained but I still have some accidents from time to time. Toys don't interest me much but I do play with my foster brother. I would rather sleep on the floor than in the bed. I love those yummy treats I receive when I go potty but I am still trying to master how to sit. I need a little work on how to be an inside dog but if you provide me with your patience, I promise you I won't disappoint!





ElmoPH ID: #191
Sampson may look familiar to some of you. He was a former rescue of ours (known as Elmo.) He is about 4 years old.

From Sampson/Elmo's foster: Meet Elmo! Elmo has an interesting story. He came to Pughearts as a puppy back in 2007. He unfortunately went missing, and we were unable to locate him. Then in 2010, we were contacted by a local animal shelter, informing us that they had one of our dogs. Lo & behold it was Elmo! (Those microchips work folks!) We don't know where he's been all this time, but it looks as if he wasn't in a horrible place. He is not afraid of humans.

Elmo is now about 4 years old, and as you can see, he is not 100% pug. We think he is a pug/boxer mix. What I can tell you is that he is 100% sweet! He loves to snuggle with his human. He's obviously bigger than a pug, but not as big as boxer, never-the-less, he thinks he's a lap dog :-) Elmo gets along well with our pugs, he loves to play with them. He is crate trained and pretty much housebroken. He is mild heartworm positive, so he will have to go through treatment, but is otherwise healthy!

You have to meet this guy to understand his true charm! He would do great with an active owner, although I think he'd do just as well in a quiet home too. So, if you are looking for the funny, loyal, loving characteristics of a pug, but would like a dog that could do a few more active things - Elmo is your guy!!





ElsaPH ID: #4355
New female Elsa. She was found shivering in a ditch covered in ice.





ElsaPH ID: #4365
Elsa is a fawn female. She is 4-5 years old. She is spayed, microchipped and current on her vaccinations. She is heartworm negative.

From Elsa's foster: Introducing Elsa, aka "Elsa Jane"! Elsa is a very sweet, laid-back little girl. She trotted into my home and fit in right away with my other pups. Elsa is just beautiful! Her coat is very fluffy and almost white. I call her my "snow bear"! She is also house-trained and has not had an accident in the house. Elsa sleeps all night and likes to sleep in her own bed. I would rather have her snuggle with me, and perhaps she will with her future family. She also has a good appetite, is polite at meal time, and likes her veggies and sardines.

Elsa follows me everywhere, and I love the way she smiles at me and wags her tail. WOW! Elsa may be just the perfect fur baby for you! I know she will bring a lot of joy and love to any home.






ElsaPH ID: #5111
Elsa is a 4 yr old owner surrender. She is heartworm negative and spayed.

Poor Elsa is scared with all the changes around her world and we are here to help make sure that she feels safe and comfortable.





EltonPH ID: #4938
Elton is a young male that was found wandering all alone. He is heartworm negative and scheduled for his neuter. He has some bad skin issues from being on his own and having to deal with fleas.

From Elton's foster: Foster Elton doesn't need a description, just look at his picture, that says it all! He's as silly as his wonky eyes (which I LOVE). Elton is 6 months old and is hands down the best puppy I have ever had the pleasure to have in my home, including Megan (sorry Megan lovers). He's a perfect balance of all that's good. He plays like a demon, and plays and plays and plays........ But once in a while he does stop and when he does he wants me to just hold him. This boy melts my heart. He's a puppy so he will need to have someone willing to continue the housetraining but he's really not as bad as he could be (believe me). Elton needs an active home, either with children or other younger playful dogs. This little guy is a treasure just waiting to be discovered.





EmersonPH ID: #3277
Emerson is a fawn male. He comes to us from a local animal control facility. He is heartworm positive. He has been brought current on his vaccinations and microchipped.

From Emerson (with some help from his foster): Hi everyone, I’m Emerson. My foster mom is going to help me write this. I’m not much to look at right now because I caught the mange. But I’m on the road to recovery! Good news is I’m crate trained and partially housebroken. My foster mom is teaching me basic dog obedience because no one ever took the time with me before I came to Pughearts. I’m a winky so you have to protect my one good eye. It has the dry eye so you have to put drops in it every day. I’m heartworm positive too. Treatment will be down the road for me, but then I will become the best and cutest pug in the world so you can adopt me! We will keep you posted on my progress. Did I tell you how much love I have to give and how cuddly I am and how cute I am and how I love to play and chew on my Nylabone. I have the cutest little prance of a walk. I’ll be visiting adoption events soon, so come see me.

Update: As you can see by Emerson's photos, his mange has now cleared and his coat has grown back in. Now he's the cutie we all knew he would be!





EmilyPH ID: #4901
Emily is a darling female that came to PugHearts with her brother Eric from a bad situation.

From Emily's foster: This cuddly girl gets along well with humans and other dogs alike! Emily is housebroken and good in the crate at night and is learning that the crate is her safe place during the day. She is a true pug as she loves nothing more than to snuggle and be close to her human. This dainty lady also enjoys belly rubs and as much attention as you can stand to give her. If you're looking for a snuggle bug pug, Emily is your girl!





Emily And LouiePH ID: #69
This is Emily and Louie, a bonded pair that will only be considered for adoption together as they would be lost without each other.

Emily is a sweet 5 year old fawn female and Louie is a 6 year old fawn male. They have both been microchipped and are current on vaccinations. She has been spayed and he has been neutered. They are housebroken and very well behaved. They are both in good health and no special needs other than a loving home.

From their foster:

Emily - PERFECT little dog, completely potty trained. Emily loves the company of anyone, Men and women, kids and adults. She prefers to be with her foster mom at all times. If you want to play she will play, if you want to relax she will relax. Emily walks well on a leash, and rides well in a car. She is an easy going girl, as she gets along well with both dogs and cats. She prefers to sleep in the bed but will sleep on her own bed also. Definitely is a chunky girl, she loves her treats….she loves all food. :-)

Lou - Sweet little soul. Lou is the most gentle boy I have ever fostered. He is very timid and has made some BIG adjustments since he came into my home. I believe he may have been abused at one time, as he is leary of loud noises and quick movements. He does well with both dogs and cats, adults and older children. He gets VERY excited when his foster mom arrives home and “yips” with excitement, he also “yips” as if he is talking back to you when you talk to him. I’ve never seen a pug wag their tail with as much excitement as Lou. He is ADORABLY cute. He walks well on a leash and rides well in a car. Lou prefers to sleep in his own bed, but will share it with Emily also. He is great at “settling down” when the time is right and enjoys being outside for a few minutes to play. He is an easygoing boy. :-)





EmmaPH ID: #716
Emma is a fawn female. She comes to us from a local animal control facility. She is about 4 years old. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on her vaccinations. She is moderately heartworm positive and will begin treatment shortly. She also has some patchy hair loss which could be from allergies or poor diet.





EmmanuelPH ID: #4874
Emmanuel is a 12 week old puppy.

He has some damage to one eye and is a typical wild man puppy.





EmmyPH ID: #5338
Emmy is the tiniest little ball of fire you will ever meet. She is 2 years old, heartworm negative and super excited about life.

She gets so happy of any attention you give her. She will steal hearts for sure! She is about half as tall as some of the other pugs but has a HUGE personality.

This little angel gets along well with other dogs and cats but does not seem to want to play. She loves when they chase each other and definitely gets in on that fun.



Pending adoption - Congratulations Meagan





EnzoPH ID: #4796
Enzo is a sweet 3 yr old fawn male.

He is (happily) heartworm negative and already neutered.

Enzo is already pending adoption with his foster family.





EnzoPH ID: #4505
Enzo is a young fawn male (under 2) who is filled with puppy energy and mischief. He has been neutered, microchipped, de-wormed, and vaccinated. He is heartworm negative. Enzo loves to play with toys, run zoomies around the house and yard, leap tall furniture with a single bound, wrestle, chew, mark and hump. With regular use of the belly band, the latter two have reduced significantly, with everything staying dry for up to 72 hours. He is a great playmate with other dogs, taking both a dominant role and lying on his back for wrestle sessions. I don’t think he had much human interaction prior to rescue; it took nearly 3 weeks for him to calmly lie down and snuggle next to a person. He’s starting to learn what it is to be a pet, and is endlessly entertaining. He’s even learned that bedtime means sleep, not play! He is crate trained, comes when called, and knows how to sit. He is still a work in progress on the leash, and will rush the door to go outside and explore if not given firm commands. He will amuse himself with a water bottle for hours, de-stuff most toys in mere minutes, and is always game for tug-of-war.





EppiePH ID: #247
Eppie is a beautiful 4 year old black female. She is an owner surrender. Eppie has been spayed, microchipped and is current on all of her vaccinations. She is heartworm negative.

He is working on his house training and doing very well learning to live indoors. He gets on well with children.





EricPH ID: #4900
Eric is a sweet boy from a bad situation. He comes to PugHearts with his sister Emily





ErickPH ID: #4508
Erick is a 7-8 yr old male. He was found wandering all alone.

He is heartworm negative and dealing with an upper respiratory infection.

From Erick (with some help from his foster): Hello, My new name is Erick James. Erick means "ruler of the people". I am most certainly a lover of people. I so love people. I love dogs of all ages. I am a beautiful apricot boy with lots of energy and love to give. I am about seven or eight years old and I love breakfast, lunch and dinner. I eat dry food and am potty trained. My foster mother had heard some awful stories about the boy dogs and behavior. She was all prepared with belly bands, newspapers, crates, and paper towels. I sure did surprise her. I DO NOT do those behaviors in the house. I am a perfect gentleman. I have not had one accident in the house. I wake up in the morning so happy to see my foster parents. I smile all day long. I love the backyard and have been respectful to the landscaping. I do require lots of cuddles and you will love the feel of my soft fluffy coat. I am a luxurious little guy. If you are searching for an adorable lover, please consider me. I am the guy.






ErikPH ID: #766
Erik is about 2 years old. He is super cute and full of playful energy. He loves to play with toys, chase frogs, and play with his foster puggie sisters. Erick does have his cuddly side. He always naps near his foster people and sleeps in bed with us. He has excellent manners in the house. He loves to go in the car and is very happy to meet new people and dogs. Erik is mild heart-worm positive. This does not seem to slow him down or bother him at all. He has been faithfully taking his Heartguard since becoming a PugHearts dog. Erik has a face that makes us laugh even when he is stealing my gardening gloves! He is just wonderful and can't wait to find his forever home.





ErinPH ID: #4634
Erin is a 1 yr old female. She was surrendered to us due to changes in the home environment. Lola is already spayed and will be brought current on her vaccines.





ErniePH ID: #4601
Ernie is a young black male. He appears healthy and will be vetted soon.





ErniePH ID: #5337
Ernie is a 2 year old charismatic fawn male. Ernie lives to play with toys and cuddle. Ernie is smaller than the average pug, but has a big personality. Ernie is a spunky guy, but does get tired out. Ernie’s favorite spot in the house is the adult bed. Ernie would make a wonderful addition to a household in search of a pug!



Happily, Ernie is heartworm negative and was just neutered.





EsseyPH ID: #4820
Essey is a beautiful 8 year old lady. She has a great pug face with a wonderful nose roll (which needs to be cleaned regularly). Essey is HW+ and had a pretty tough time of it a few weeks ago. She had a worm dislodge and go to her lungs, let me tell you it was really scary. She arrived at the ER Vet with a suuper low body temperature, blood pressure that they couldn’t read and labored breathing, I was pretty sure she wasn’t going to make it back home. But this little gal has some spunk and she made it through this crisis and will be treated for those darn worms in the very near future. Other than the HW Essey is in great health. She is a little thin but that will correct itself when she is treated.

Essey doesn’t play, Essey only wants to be held … that’s it. I’m sure that she will eventually have more energy but right now she is fighting super bad HW so she sleeps a lot. She is the sweetest little cuddler though, she doesn’t care how many others are on my lap, she always finds a place to cuddle up to me. She should be ready for adoption around March or so. Keep your eyes out for this girl, she is a keeper!





EsterPH ID: #4560
Ester is a wonderful three year old who was surrendered to a animal shelter. She is HW+ and been spayed while with PugHearts.

From her foster: Ester took a couple of days to observe the dynamics of our home when she arrived. She immediately gravitated to the humans in the house and craved attention. After a few days, she began playing with the other dogs. Esther loves to chase and will engage in playful biting and rough housing when invited. Nylabones are her favorite toy.

Ester loves to sit on the back of chairs and sofas, because it provides her a better perspective on what is going on in the house. You can see the wheels turning. Is there human food to which she should be entitled? Is my foster mom making something for me to eat in the kitchen? When will that dog get out of my foster mom's lap so that it will be my turn? These questions are better answered when perched above everyone else! (Little did she know, she arrived in a foster home that won't share human food.)

If you would like a velcro pug, this is the girl for you! She is loving and playful. She has a face that tells all the stories. I love you. You make me happy. I'm here for you. My chest likes to be rubbed right here. If you are looking for constant companionship for you or another dog, she will be a great fit in your home.





EthylPH ID: #5006
Ethyl is a 9 year old female that came to PugHearts from a local shelter. She is heartworm negative and already spayed.

From Ethyl's foster: Ethel is a great gal. She's about 8 years old and LOVES attention. She gets along great with all the other pugs in the house, she's a little finicky when it comes to other breeds though. She is potty trained, knows how to use the doggy door, crate trained, healthy and ready for someone to scoop this little gem up and give her a home forever!





EugenePH ID: #4817
Eugene is a 2-3 yr old pug mix male from a local shelter. He is heartworm negative, already neutered and a real doll.

From Eugene's foster: Eugene is a healthy happy little boy. They say he is probably a Puggle but I think he has some Billy Goat also as he can jump over my couch when we play fetch.

His 3 favorite things are, in no particular order, dinner, fetch and snuggling.

He is a great dog that was at a shelter on the line to be euthanized when PugHearts saved him.

He is active because he's young and healthy- about 2 years old - but he is crate trained, knows how to fetch and sits on command. He is better about marking but has an accident every once in a while. Eugene is a super sweet boy that gets along with my girls and our cat. He is looking for a family that he can call his own.





EulaPH ID: #968
Eula is a fawn female. She is 4 years old. She is in good health; she is heartworm negative. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on her vaccinations. Now all she needs is someone to adore her!





EvaPH ID: #5147
Eva is a precious 8-9 yr old lady.

She will be seeing the vet and we will update soon.






EvanPH ID: #4847
Evan is a 8-9 year old black male who is neutered microchipped, and current on his vaccinations. Evan is HW+ and will be eligible for heartworm treatment Spring 2016. This handsome boy is wonderful. He likes to snuggle, play, chew on bones, but is also content to be alone. He is house trained and knows how to use a doggy door. He is crate trained but likes to sleep in the big bed. He would be perfect as an only dog or with other pugs. Can you open your heart to this middle aged put? He will repay your love a million times.





FaithPH ID: #71
Faith is a sweet fawn female, approximately 1 1/2 years old. She came to us from a local shelter, so we do not know anything about her past. However, it looks like it was pretty sad. She has had to have her left eye removed as it was in such bad condition. She has been spayed. She is current on all of her vaccinations and has been microchipped. She is housebroken and would do well in a home with a doggy door.

Faith is really in need of some human affection and loves to be doted upon. She is a sweet little girl who gets along very well with children. She enjoys going for walks and playing with kiddies. She is a wonderful girl who would do very well in a home with children.





FancyPH ID: #3209
Fancy is a fawn female. She is 2 years old. She comes to us from a puppy mill along with several other dogs, so she has never been anyone's pet.

From Fancy's foster: Introducing Miss Fancy Pants. Fancy is one of the puppy mill girls that came in together. She is a beauty and as sweet as can be. She loves to have attention and has been at my side since we got home. She is spayed, HW- and needs her new life to start now.





FancyPH ID: #4519
Fancy is an owner surrender, through no fault of her own. She was surrendered with Frank, but they are not bonded. She is 9 years old, but young at heart.

From her foster: Don’t judge this book by her cover. The gray hair can fool you! This pistol has a great sense of self, knows what she wants, and knows how to work a room. Fancy loves to sit on the back of a couch or chair, but has no problem laying next to you if you are up to giving a belly rub. She loves to chew on nylabones, is a good eater, and is potty trained.





FantaPH ID: #3298
Fanta is a small female mix who came from a local shelter. She has been spayed, microchipped and brought current on her vaccinations.

From Fanta's foster: Fanta is a total imposter, she is not a pug! But please don't tell her that she's different, she thinks she's just like all the other fosters. Fanta is from the terrible situation in Brazoria. We think she is a mix of Blue Heeler and Corgi. Whatever her ancestry is she's pretty awesome! I don't call her Fanta most of the time, I call her Freckles or Freckle Face. She is white with little flecks of gold in her fur that look like freckles. She's not a very big girl, about 15 - 18 pounds I would guess, and she is the sweetest little girl! She is very gentle when she wants on my lap, and she will lay her head on my chest and look at me out of the top of her eyes.

Her personality is awesome. There isn't a pug in the house that doesn't adore her. She is so very playful and everyone gravitates to her for play. So far she has shown a preference for my black pugs but since I got Sweets she has included him in her little group. Fanta is also a hoarder. She takes all the toys, shoes, and what else she can find and puts it on the couch all around her. She will just lay in the middle of it all and sleep or watch the others play. If someone takes one of the toys she has "gathered" she will watch until they lose interest in it and then go get it and put it back in her pile. The bonus is she hasn't chewed any of my shoes (yet).

I know Fanta isn't a pug, but she is sure the next best thing. She is so sweet and loving. She really would be fantastic in a home with children, she loves to play but she also loves to cuddle and give kisses. I'm about a pug prejudiced as you can get but I really think she's great. It's even kind of fun to have a dog around with a nose that I can rub! Fanta really deserves to have a great life after what she endured at the 'shelter'. You would never know she hasn't always been loved and treated nicely. She will make someone a fantastic companion. (and she doesn't shed much compared to a pug!)





FarrahPH ID: #1015
Farrah is a fawn female. She is a senior girl but is no wallflower. She has been spayed, microchipped and brought current on her vaccinations.

From Farrah's foster: Farrah came to us thru no fault of her own, I mean, how could anyone not want her, cause she is just so full of personality. In a household of two males she has no problem letting them know she's the boss. HA! She loves to sunbathe, be the center of attraction, snoop around the cupboards, that are of course at her level, and if the doors are closed she will ever so cleverly and gingerly open them. She doesn't get into anything, she just wants to make sure she knows what is in there and maybe know what her options are. HA! She is a cuddle bug and for 15 pounds she knows how to take up the whole king size bed. She loves her humans, even so much that her foster family has already made it known that they are going to be foster failures. She has become a part of our family and has her daddy wrapped around her paws! :) She is severe heartworm positive and will go thru treatment in December. She was given the name Farrah by my daughter cause it means joy and happiness and she is surely all of that. Plus, she has blonde eyelashes, hardly any black on her and blonde tonails.....her name fits her! She is a joy!





FayePH ID: #4627
Faye is a young female that was found wandering all alone.

She is heartworm negative and has been spayed.






FelicityPH ID: #4500
Felicity is AMAZING!!! I fell in love with her when I went to pick her up. She was an owner surrender and she was in dire need of medical care. Her right eye was severely damaged and required removal. Even though she was injured this little lady was happy from the time I met her. Her tail wags constantly.

She is 9 years old and was a ‘porch dog’ that lived outside. Her poor fur is not in the best of shape but it is coming around with medicated baths and good food. She was shaved so what hair she has is like a bristle brush. I think in another few weeks she will not even look like the same girl. Felicity is probably one of the best behaved fosters I have ever had, she is housetrained, she doesn’t bark, and she gets along very well with all the other fosters in the house. She is more of a person pug though, she loves to sit on the couch with me and gets really excited when it’s time to go to bed (of course, it’s also my bed?), have I mentioned yet that I LOVE her!!!! Oh, and she loves to give kisses!

Felicity received great news this week that her eye was not cancerous so that means she is ready to find the home she so greatly deserves. She is HW- (how that happened I don’t know) and in great health. If you are that special human to love Felicity for the rest of her life, I just might be talked into letting her be your baby.

I have to keep him in the crate until Dr. H gives the ok - he is the one that had the broken leg that did not heal correctly so it had it had to be fixed.

FerrisPH ID: #1051
Ferris is a fawn male. He is a young guy - about 8 months old. He was picked up by animal control with no tags or microchip. He is in good health; he is heartworm negative. He is being neutered, microchipped and brought current on his vaccinations.

From Ferris' foster: What can I say about Ferris? He is adorable. He looks at you with his sweet puppy eyes and doesn’t understand why you’re mad at him for tearing the stuffing out of the toy you just bought him. Yes, he is a puppy, 8-9 months old. He needs to go somewhere where he will be played with most of the day by other young pups or peoples. He does things like pull the toilet paper off the roll just to see how far it will go before he gets caught. Since he is still a puppy, he needs to be supervised so he doesn’t chew things he shouldn’t. He gets along with all my other fosters and dogs. He likes his kennel and is house broken if taken out on a schedule. He loves to chase the laser light and will chase it until he’s dizzy! He is an adorable little Puggie Puppy! Everyone who meets him just loves him.





FesterPH ID: #5242
Fester is a furry little NAP (Not a Pug) from a local shelter.

From Fester's foster: Foster Fester (I love to say that) is an 8 year old NAP (Not a Pug) who is about the cutest little guy I have ever seen. I think he is going to have longer hair, it looks like it has been cut at one point so only time will tell. I think he has very close ancestors who are Pekinese but I have no guesses on who else he is related to. His fur is REALLY soft. He does take more grooming than a pug but he sure is a pretty boy when he’s all fluffed out. He’s not too fond of brushing but we are working on that, no mats for this guy!

Fester is a very well behaved little guy. He likes the other fosters and is quite in love with Cecil, he is always grooming him. He isn’t fond of being held, he will let me hold him and love on him for a few minutes (and seems to really enjoy the attention) but then he’s ready to lay down next to me and just get the occasional love. He is great at night and is quite considerate in bed, he’s not the bed hog that the others are. His potty habits are also really good. He does like to go outside and let the whole world know that he’s on the job guarding his house but when I tell him to come in he’s the first one in the door.

Fester is heartworm positive so he will not be able to go to his forever home until the Fall, probably around October. In the meantime, he will continue to be loved by me and cuddled every chance I get.





FinnPH ID: #988
Finn is a fawn male. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations.

From Finn's foster: Finn is just a wonderful little boy. He is a well rounded little guy who is happy to play with other dogs or just cuddle with his family. He is potty trained and knows how to use the dog door. When away he stays in his crate. He likes to sleep on the pillow right above your head at night making sure all your dreams are sweet ones. He loves his meals and is a bit protective of them. Overall, Finn is a fantastic, little, young guy who has his lifetime to spend making some families home a place worth coming home too. I know I look forward to seeing his adorable face every day!





FinnPH ID: #356
Finn is a fawn male who comes to us from a local animal shelter. We estimate he is 2 to 3 years old. Right now he has some itchy skin but he is being treated for that.

Fiona is a fawn female. We believe she is about 8 years old. She was found running the streets with no tags or microchip and nobody came for her. She is HW negative and already spayed. She also has an underdeveloped right eye. Fiona loves people and being with her person(s).

From Fiona's foster: Fiona is such a sweetheart. She is about 8 years old, heartworm negative and loves to be held. She does not like to be closed up. Boy can she screech!!!! So that means she loves sleeping in the king size bed. When she is outside she loves to visit with her canine friends. She can be a talker. At feeding time she is very good. She doesn't take food from her foster brother and sisters. But she is a pug. Amazing!!!!! She would be a good companion for someone that is home alot.





FisherPH ID: #5074
Let me tell you about Foster Fisher. He's an owner surrender and heartworm negative! He's about 3 years old, he's a little hyper and skittish at first. But he's a SUPER love bug once he gets to know his people. He loves other dogs though. He nips at your feet sometimes in the morning and especially if you have socks on. ;)

He's been great with AJ (my 6 year old son). He sits and shakes....and comes when called after a few days. He likes to sleep under the covers. He does try and break up any rough housing going on when my pugs rip around the living room! He wants to join in on the fun! He has super googly eyes. He's awesome. I love him. He looks at you, but doesn't really look at you because of his googly eyes. He's my googly woogly bear (Monsters Inc reference).






FletcherPH ID: #5208
Fletcher joins the PugHearts family from the southern area of Texas.






FlipPH ID: #849
Flip is a fawn male. He was found wandering the streets with no tags or microchip. It doesn't look like anyone has been looking after this poor boy for a while. He is a very tiny boy - about 10 pounds! We will post a full bio once he has been checked over by our vet and settled into a foster home.

From Flip's foster: Flip is a tiny little guy who's full of big love. He is a spirited boy who loves attention and loves to play with the other pups in the house. But when it is time for him to calm down and take a nap, he is the sweetest little cuddler, he sleeps in my arms like a little baby, making little groaning noises when he is moved, it warms my heart and makes me laugh at the same time. He is crate trained when I leave and sleeps cuddled up next to me at night. He is a very well mannered boy who doesn't have any health issues and is ready to have a forever home.





FlipPH ID: #311
Flip is a black male. We estimate he is about 2 years old. He is heartworm negative. He is current on his vaccinations and has been microchipped.This poor little guy was found on the streets after being hit by a car. He was suffering from a fractured pelvis and 3 broken ribs. We are very happy to report that he has now made a full recovery and is back to being a healthy, happy, mischievious puggy! We have discovered this boy likes to dig holes under fences, so he would do best in a home where he gets his exercise while being walked on a lead. He's a beautiful boy who has been given a new lease on life and he's anxious to live it!





FloPH ID: #3178
Full Description Coming Soon!






FloraPH ID: #4388
Meet Flora. This beautiful little girl is approximately six years old and comes from a puppy mill in Louisiana where she had more than her share of puppy litters. Amazingly, she is heartworm negative however she does suffer from luxating patellas and dry eyes so she will need daily drops for the rest of her life. She was in severe need of a bath and a meal when she came to us weighing at only 12 pounds. Flora also had a hard time knowing how to just be a pet and not someone's breeding machine. She cowered away from attention and wasn't sure how to go potty in the grass. Two weeks of love and regular meals and she is now playing with other dogs, using the doggie door like a champ, sleeping in bed with us quietly at night, and she put on 3 pounds! Flora is a sweet, beautiful girl who deserves to be loved on and treated like the princess she is. With a little time and a lot of love she will make someone a wonderful lifelong companion!





FlorencePH ID: #5011
Florence is a sweet 7 yr old female from a local shelter. She is heartworm negative and being treated for an ear infection and bad skin. She is already scheduled for her spay

From Florence's foster: Florence is quite a sweet little girl. Poor little thing had quite a bad time of it before we got her, she was left in an apartment with another pug when the renters moved out. Luckily they were found and made their way to us. Flo is quite a timid little thing, she takes some time to warm up but she wants to love and be loved. She really need someone that will love her and give her the attention that she craves so much.

Flo is in good health and ready for her forever home. She will be at each event until she is adopted so please come by to make her acquaintance.






FlowerPH ID: #2132
Flower is a fawn female found in a lady's flower bed in front of her house. She is blind and about 6 years old. She is heartworm negative.

From Flower's foster: Flower is perfect! She is super happy all the time. She is playful and enjoys wrestling little stuffed toys. Her blindness does not slow her down at all. She learned where the door was in our house in the first couple of days. Flower is a bit fluffy but she is working on that. She is eating her veggies trying to lose a bit of weight. Flower is really cute and has super soft fur. Oh, and she has perfect house manners - not one accident. She definitely lets us know when she needs attention, or to go outside, by talking to us. Even her little bark is cute. She gets along well with my two pug girls and with a pug boy who we are babysitting. Flower will make someone a wonderful companion. She really is a sweet angel pug!





FloydPH ID: #996
Floyd is a 3 year old black male. He is heartworm negative and came to us with his 5 siblings when his owner was unable to care for him any longer. He has been neutered and is up to date on all vaccines. Floyd will do best in a home with at least one other pug and a family that is willing to be patient with him until he is comfortable.

Floyd has a beautiful, sliky, black coat that is very shiny. He is 3 years old and his got the energy to prove it. He is a very sweet dog that loves to use my other dog's back as a pillow when its time to go to sleep. His shy and timid at times, but once he gets to know you he always wants to be next to you. His the PERFECT combination in a dog, he is playful, but loving at the same time. When you or your other pets want to play, he also plays and a lot, but when you want to relax he cuddles with you. He likes to sleep next to you in the bed. Whenever you put his harness on, he likes to roll on his back and stays like that until he gets a belly rub. His favorite sleeping positions are on his back with paws spread wide open or laying on top of my other dog. He adjusts quickly, but his a little scared initially due to his past. He is a BLESSING to have and you'll LOVE him!!





FlynnPH ID: #5218
Meet Flynn. He comes to PugHearts after living in a backyard with little to no human interaction.

This sweet guy is learning to be a house pug and craves human attention. Flynn is about 3 years old and heartworm negative.





FonduePH ID: #812
Fondue is a 3 year old brindle female. She was found wandering the streets all alone.

She is heartworm negative and everything a person could hope for.





FonziPH ID: #5060
Fonzi is a 3 yr old heartworm negative male.





FooPH ID: #827
Foo (or Fu) is a black male. He is an owner surrender through no fault of his own. He is 10 years old. He is heartworm negative. He is suffering from some itchy skin right now but we are treating that and he should heal up nicely.

From Foo's foster: Foo is a sweet, gentle pug. He is very quiet and gets along well with dogs and cats. He is an older pug, so he does play, but also loves to sleep! He will follow you around the house, as he is inquisitive! He is fully potty trained, walks on a leash, and knows a few commands. He is not an alpha male and has shown no aggression. He has skin issues/allergies and will need care and attention to his needs..





FozzyPH ID: #72
Fozzy is an adorable young fawn male. He appears to be a pug mix, though we aren't sure with what! He was found wandering the streets, so not much is known about him. He has been checked by our vet and has no health issues. He has been neutered, microchipped and brought up to date on all of his vaccinations. He is negative for heartworms and has been started on a preventative.

We are estimating he is around 1 year old, which means he still has quite a lot of puppy in him. As such, he is very active. He gets along very well with other dogs, though nobody appears to have taught him how to play with toys. As he is so young and has obviously had no training, he does not know any commands.

He is not presently housebroken, but he seems to be a quick learner so that should not be an issue. His foster parents are in the process of training him and with the guidance of his foster siblings we believe he'll catch on quickly. He also rides well in a car. His foster parents report that he is very sweet and loves affection. Fozzy is ready to find his forever home with someone who is ready for the challenges and rewards that come with a young fellow like himself.





Fozzy BearPH ID: #351
Fozzy Bear is a healthy, fawn, neutered male who is about 17 months old. He is heartworn negative and is current on all of his vaccinations. He is an owner surrender, and we believe by appearance and behavior to have been part of a puppy mill. He shows signs that he has had limited and or negative human contact, though has never shown any aggressive tendencies. He has not lived inside a home before now and is learning basic training and behaviors. We are currently working on housebreaking and the sit command. He is progressing slowly and will need a calm and patient family to help him along. New sounds can startle him but his young age and curious nature helps him overcome those fears quickly. When Fozzy first meets a new person, he is shy and a bit jumpy. But quickly opens up becoming loving and affectionate towards people and other dogs. He gets along with kids, but is cautious around very active ones and may need a calm lap to lie in.

FrancesPH ID: #4323
Frances is a 7 year old fawn female. She is heartworm negative.

From Frances' foster: Meet foster Frances! She's a bit of a hot mess but will melt your heart. She's a little timid of people when they're towering over her but get her on a couch or bed and you get nothing but cuddles. She's a very small Pug. She's good with other dogs and is house trained. She does have some medical issues that we're working on right now, more to come on that later. Her quirky personality and spunk have wormed their way into our hearts. She's a special little lady.





FrankPH ID: #928
Frank is a black male. He is a 4 years old black. He is severe heartworm positive and will begin treatment shortly. He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations. It's obvious that nobody's looked after this little guy for a while, as he is severely underweight. His foster Mom is helping him gain weight and prepare for a difficult heartworm treatment. We will post updates as his situation progresses.

From Frank's foster: Frank (or Joe as I call him) is a sweetheart! He has some pretty bad heartworms and when he first came in his coughing was one of the worst I’ve ever had. Over a period of a few months he seems to have evened out and, though he does still cough, he is much better. Joe/Frank is a beautiful black boy. He has a really short, tight coat and it looks like satin. He is one of those miracle pugs that really doesn’t shed much. He is also a true PugHearts pug because when you look at him head on his legs bow out in such a way that it looks like a heart, it’s really quite something.

He’s also a very happy boy. He loves to play with toys and I love to watch him rolling around on his back trying to catch a stuffed toy. He makes little playful noises. Joe is quite expressive in both his actions and his intelligence. You can see the wheels turning when you look into his eyes. He wasn’t sure what this whole pet thing was about when I first got him. He had no idea that he was suppose to sit on my lap to be pet, he just stood there looking at me like “what are you doing?” He has adjusted quite nicely to pet status and seems to be pretty happy with the whole situation now.

Joe is almost ready to be treated for those nasty old heartworms. He was so extremely skinny that the doctor couldn’t treat him until he gained some weight.. I’ve had quite a trial getting him to put on weight but I think he’s finally almost there and will be able to be treated in the next few weeks. He is the sweetest little guy and will keep you entertained for hours.





FrankPH ID: #4520
Frank is a charming older gentleman who loves everyone and doesn't believe any lap should be left empty. His house manners are impeccable and he loves his evening constitutionals. Do not be fooled by his ten years of experience. He has no problem giving the youngsters a run for their money! From Pugs to Great Danes, Frank will seamlessly integrate into any family, especially one looking for an amazing snuggle pug.

Frank (aka Frankie) is a ten years old male who is heartworm negative, microchipped, and up-to-date on his vaccinations. He’s ready for adoption.

Frankie was surrendered to PugHearts when his only owner had to go to a retirement home. While he gets along fantastic with my other four dog (three Pugs and a Chihuahua), he does not seem to like extremely large dogs such as a Great Dane. With that said, my son came home from college for the Christmas holiday for a month and brought his Australian Shepherd. Frankie and Laddy (the Shepherd) got along famously even sharing a bed on a regular basis despite the fact that another bed was available.

Frankie is a very gentle, sweet soul. He has the sweetest personality and is very patient. He’s very smart too. He learned the doggie door immediately. I don’t know if he had one before or his owner just let him out, but Frankie has not had an ‘accidents’ in the house. He is fully potty trained. Given his former owner and the fact that I don’t have any children at home, I don’t know how he is with young children, but he would definitely be great for a family with older children (maybe five years or older). Don’t let his ‘10 years young’ age fool you, he very active and energetic. Frankie wasn’t able to grow old with his first mom; he needs someone to love him into and through his golden years. Is that you? Complete an adoption application today and say: come grow old with me, the best is yet to be my dear Mr. Frankie!





FrankPH ID: #5102
Frank is a 10 yr old male surrendered to the shelter at 10 yrs old age due to a new cat in the house.

From Frank's foster: Hi there! I am Friendly Frank. Sometime I am called “Frank the Tank”. I am looking for my forever home. Are you my match? I am housebroken, crate trained, can sit and shake hands. I love to sit by you and play too! I am a ten year old apricot male and I am good alone, with other dogs, and kids. My foster family thinks I am an awesome pug and such a good boy. I melt in their laps for snuggles. I do the most adorable snorts for them and I have a cute happy dance to greet them every morning and when they get home. I am a smart pug who is a solid nap buddy and playmate. I also like Purina and slow walks on the beach. Give me a ring if you think we are a match.

July update: If you need someone reliable to guard your grill or smoker, Frank's your guy!!! He's sweet, playful, snugglicious, smart, house trained, crate trained, and gets along with everyone, unless "everyone" happens to be a cat or squirrel. He's super easy to live with, and don't you need that in your life?!?!?





FrankiPH ID: #557
Franki is a fawn female. She is 7 years old and is an owner surrender. She is heartworm negative. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on her vaccinations. She is blind but is in good health overall.

From Franki's foster: She is blind, but does not realize this is not normal. Franki seems to "see" with her ears and feet. She does not run into things and is a very active girl. She loves to cuddle and be with her people, at home and out on the town. Franki has some skin allergies and will need to be kept flea free and on quality food. We are told she has a history of seizures, but we have seen to signs of this being an active problem. Franki is a special needs pug. However, she needs more love and cuddling than she does intensive medical care.





FrankiePH ID: #73
Frankie is a 2 year old black male. He is an owner surrender through no fault of his own. Frankie has been neutered, microchipped and is current on his vaccinations. He in in excellent health.

Frankie is a very happy, energetic young guy. He still has a bit of puppy in him and loves to play. He is housetrained and knows some basic commands.





FrankiePH ID: #4420
Hi I’m Frankie! I am about an 8-9 years old male and heartworm negative. When I first came to my foster mom’s house I had ear infections in both ears, but I was treated and last time I went to the vet I got an A+ on how they looked. I currently have a slight infection in my gums but I am on antibiotics and will be better in no time! I love to lay on the couch and watch the TV or take a nap in a nice human’s lap. I am a great snuggler and do not mind if you want to use me as a pillow, actually I quite like it. I sleep in a crate at night and when my foster parents are not home, sometimes if the crate is covered with a blanket I like just to go lay in there when they are home to get some peace and quiet. I am a good boy in my crate as I do not bark or whine, I just go right in when you tell me. I am house trained and use a doggy door to take myself out. I get really excited when you pick up a harness or leash as I love to go on walks and car rides! I get along great with my foster mom’s pugs. I have never been around cats or kids, but I think that I would like both. My foster mom says I am the sweetest well behaved boy that has some funny quirks. I can’t wait to meet my forever family as I know I would be the perfect new family member!





FrankiePH ID: #5029
Frankie is a 3 yr old fawn male from a local shelter. He is heartworm positive and will have to go through treatment prior to adoption.

From Frankie's foster: Frankie is one gorgeous pug who came to PugHearts from a shelter in the valley. He is about 2yrs old, neutered, and HW+, and he will soon undergo his heart worm treatment and be ready for his furever home by late fall.

Frankie is a very special boy and full of energy!! He loves to play - with other dogs, with toys, with antlers, and I am sure, children!! Frankie loves to be with his people and therefore does not like barriers and will always find a way around them. We are working on manners and potty training - which have both greatly improved since he was neutered. He has an amazing personality and makes us laugh every day!!





Frankie 2PH ID: #380
Frankie is a fawn female. She is 6 1/2 years old. She was an owner surrender along with her brother Johnny due to famly circumstances. They have been together since they were babies and are extremely bonded. We will not separate them and will be adopting them out as a pair. Frankie has been spayed and is current on her vaccinations. She is in excellent health. She is housebroken and well behaved.





Franklin 2PH ID: #327
Franklin is a black male. He is 5 years old. He is an owner surrender through no fault of his own. He is heartworm negative and in good health except for being a bit "fluffy." He is now on a diet to help him cope with the Texas heat. We will let you know how he's doing with his battle of the bulge.





FranniePH ID: #594
Frannie is a fawn female. She comes to us from a local shelter and is about 4 years old. Frannie has not been looked after and when she came to us both of her eyes had ruptured. We were unable to save them so they were removed to avoid any further pain. We are happy to report she is doing quite well.

From Frannie's foster: Frannie is one happy little girl. Life hasn't been overly kind to her thus far but that doesn't bother her! The day I brought her home after her surgery she was running around the house like she had lived there forever. In fact, the first time I let her go outside she found the door to get back in all by herself. She has super powered hearing now and just the sound of me walking tells her where I am and she trots along at my heels.

Seeing how she has adapted to her new life is quite inspiring. She loves to be close to me and will jump on the couch to sit with me or jump down to follow me when I get up. She absolutely LOVES to sleep with me. When it's time to go to bed she will go into my bedroom and put her front paws on the bed waiting for me to give her a little assist (the rest of them need help getting up also) Then I have to fight for my space the rest of the night because she just keeps moving over to get close to me.

Frannie walks well on a leash and loves to go bye bye in the car. She is also housetrained. I have taught her that "careful" means she's in danger of running into something and she will slow down or jog to the side to miss whatever it is. We're also working on "up" and "down" for steps. It is totally amazing how well she has adjusted! Her happy, loving spirit is thriving. Frannie doesn't need special care or attention. However she is very demanding in the love department. I think she will do well in any situation. She gets on well with the other dogs, loves people and I think she would adore children. All Frannie needs is a home to keep her safe and give her love.





FredPH ID: #3191
Fred is a fawn male. He is 12 years old. He has already been neutered, has a very long tongue, is heartworm negative and just needs someone to love him. We need to do a dental, but that will be after we are sure he is doing well and can tolerate that. Has an old fracture of his jaw that did not heal correctly.

From Fred's foster: Fred is a very sweet lovebug. He is house trained, leash trained, and gets along well with everyone (dogs, cats and humans). He is a gentle soul with lots of love to give. He is full of energy and loves to play. His favorite thing is to cuddle while sleeping. What an angel:)





FreddyPH ID: #318
Freddy is a fawn male. He is about 18 months old. He is neutered, microchipped and current on his vaccinations. He is in excellent health; he is heartworm negative.

From Freddy's foster: Freddy is very playful and full of energy. He likes to play fetch, knows how to "sit" and how to use a doggy door. He feels comfortable in a crate and is being reinforced in his house training. He is a sweet boy who likes to cuddle as well as play. He gets along well with children and other dogs. Freddy would do best with another dog to play with.





FreemanPH ID: #449
Freeman is a black male. We believe he is between 10 to 12 years old. He came to us from a puppy mill where he was used for breeding. He has now been neutered and can enjoy his "retirement." He had a bad case of hookworms but that has cleared with medication. He does have some vision and hearing limitations. He is current on his vaccinations and has been microchipped. He is heartworm negative.

From Freeman's foster: Meet Freeman! He is a very sweet, snuggly, little old man. Freeman came to us from a horrific puppy mill situation. We expect that he has lived most of his life outside. Despite this, he's doing pretty well adjusting to his new life indoors. He actually seems to be housebroken. He doesn't see or hear very well, but he still gets around quite well. He has no other known health issues. He loves to be held and loved, I guess he's making up for lost time. He gets along with other dogs and doesn't bother cats either! Freeman needs a special someone who is willing to give him lots of love for the rest of his life!





FreewayPH ID: #788
My name is Freeway and I'm an 18 month old fawn boy and full of energy! I like to play chase, tug of war, and chew on bones. I can make my ears stand straight up sometimes both, sometimes one or the other. I'm current on my shots, heartworm negative; micro chipped and neutered. I'm pretty good about going potty outside, but every now and then I might have an accident. When I tire myself out, I like to sit in my fosters' lap and be petted while I sleep. I know how to use a doggy door and I tolerate being crated. I like to sleep in the big bed when I'm allowed.

I'm very grateful that a nice lady stopped me from entering the freeway and called PugHearts to find me a new home. Will you be my forever home?

Frida is heartworm negative and is scheduled for her spay.

Total velcro pug who will follow you anywhere all day long.

FritzPH ID: #420
Fritz is a fawn male. Though this poor little guy is only around 2 years old, it's obvious that he has had a very rough life so far. He was found lying on the side of the road. He has a possible broken pelvis. He also has bullet fragments in his leg. As if that's not bad enough he is suffering from a severe case of demodectic mange which has left his skin infected from his constant scratching. He is also suffering from hookworms and whipworms which are so bad that he is anemic. He has ulcers on both of his eyes. And just to add insult to injury, he is severe heartworm positive. He has a very long road to recovery and we plan to do our very best to get him as healthy as possible.

It comes as no surprise given that people have obviously not treated him very well in his life that he is timid around people. However, he has a really sweet disposition. We will be posting updates on him throughout his recovery.





FrostyPH ID: #5124
Frosty is a young 2 yr old male. He is heartworm negative and scheduled for a neuter.

He was living in a backyard and is now happy to have a warm bed of his own.





GabbyPH ID: #5229
Gabby is a 4 month old female Chihuahua mix puppy that comes to us with her siblings from a shelter.

From Gabby's foster: Gabby is the tallest and loves her toys. She runs and jumps like a gazelle all the while carrying the toy in her mouth. She was very shy at first but has blossomed into a lovely, sweet-natured baby and loves to snuggle on your lap. She and her siblings are so smart, they understand the outside potty concept, keep their crate clean of poop and pee and go right to their crate when prompted.





GabbyPH ID: #75
Gabby is a fawn girl we estimate to be 7 years old. She was found wandering the streets by a family who took her in but could not keep her. Though it broke their hearts, they decided she needed more care than they could give and contacted a shelter who put them in touch with us.

Due to her appearance when she was found, she had been dubbed 'Grubby.' We felt she needed a more positive name and have begun calling her 'Gabby.'

Poor little Gabby was in obvious discomfort and was taken to our Vet for a check-up. It turns out she had 3 large kidney stones which together were about the size of a tennis ball. She was immediately admitted to the Veterinarian's clinic for emergency surgery.

We are happy to report that Gabby has come through the surgery with flying colors! She is recovering well and has gained 2 pounds since her operation. As anyone who saw her at the PugNic can attest, she is now a bundle of energy. We are thrilled to report that her prognosis is excellent!

The surgery has cost PugHearts of Houston around $800 not including aftercare. Unfortunately we still need your help on this one. We simply do not have the funds available at this time to pay for this treatment. The family who found Gabby expressed concern that if we were aware of her need for treatment we would not have accepted her. PugHearts accepts any Pug - regardless of condition. We are asking for your help to allow us to continue to keep this promise.

Due to the urgent nature, the surgery was performed immediately rather than waiting for funds. Thankfully our vet has graciously agreed to work with us as we raise funds to cover the costs.





GabbyPH ID: #789
Gabby is a beautiful black female whose name fits her perfectly, she loves to gab! Gabby is rambunctious, full of life, has a spunky little attitude, and loves to talk. Gabby loves to play and is often mischievous, stealing toys from our other Pugs while they are playing with them. Gabby also has a curious little habit of moving toys that are lying in a pile in our living room into our bedroom and making a new pile. Gabby is crate trained and loves to sleep in her kennel, despite the fact that our two other Pugs sleep in our bed! Gabby still has a little ways to go when it comes to obedience training, but she rarely has accidents in our house and often walks to the back door when she needs to go outside. It appears Gabby is also working on learning human language, as she stares at people when they speak to her, perks up her ears, and turns her head from side to side. I challenge anyone to meet little Gabby and resist falling hopelessly in love with her.





GabrielPH ID: #4536
PugHearts’ Gabriel is a 9-11 year old fawn male that is ready to find his forever family. He is up-to-date on vaccinations, recently had a dental, and is healthy. He is hard of hearing, but is still quite spry and spunky – even sprinting around the back yard in circles when he gets excited (a senior – really?). He loves attention and is very vocal at dinner. He doesn’t mind letting you know that he’s hungry (Pugs!). He is potty trained to a doggie door and gets along well with other dogs and children. When he came to PugHearts from a shelter, he was overweight and covered in fleas. Fortunately, he was heartworm negative. A bath and proper diet have fixed the rest. Speaking of which, the good doctors at Sugarland Pet Hospital saw “struvite crystals” in Gabriel’s urine and so they prescribed “Royal Canin Urinary SO” dog food. Don’t let that scare you. He’s never had a stone and a $55, seventeen pound bag of food provides over three months of meals (98 meals in fact at one cup/day). This guy wants as much love as you will give and when you’re busy, he’s okay with that too. Are you the person that will carry him through and show him love in his golden years? Seniors need love and a family too. Consider adopting this fantastic and oh-so-lovable Pug today!





GagePH ID: #741
Gage is a 7-8 year old male. He came to us from a local kill shelter. Gage does not see well and lost one of his eyes due to significant damage prior to coming into rescue. Gage loves his people, but is not fond of other dogs. I believe that Gage lived in a very cruel environment and associated the noise of other dogs around him makes him feel unsafe and he will lash out to defend himself. He seems fine with the old men in my house, but would be a best fit for a single dog home. Gage is housebroken, heartworm negative and ready for his perfect home. Are you the perfect place for a sweet boy to learn trust and feel love for the rest of his life? Gage is waiting for you.





GalileoPH ID: #2122
He is a young fawn male, we believe he is about 3 year old. He appears to have had some type of trauma and his eyes were severely injured. They were beyond saving and he has had both removed. He is also heartworm positive and will begin treatment shortly.

From Galileo's foster: Galileo is an amazing pug! He has been through quite a bit in his short life but he only looks on the bright side. He is a totally happy, active pug. When I brought him home after his eyes had been removed the day before, I sat him down on the kitchen floor and went into my bedroom for a second. I turned around to go back to get him and he had followed me into the room and not only that, he actually stepped up and stepped down on the entry to the room. OMG!!! He has not missed a beat, not one. He has exceptional hearing and a fantastic sense of location, he has an internal GPS system. He went outside that first day and walked right back to the door like he could see exactly where he needed to go.

He is a very happy little guy. He loves to play with his toys and if a toy isn’t available he will start pushing his nose on my hand so I will play fight with him. He will love to have kids to play with and is quite gentle. He has jumped on the couch since the first few days and has been jumping down for a week or so now. That is quite a scary thing for a blind pug to do, there’s no telling what they’re going to find when they land but he just goes for it anyway. He’s also housetrained, I don’t think he’s had one accident. He’s not very fond of staying outside, he raises quite a racket when he thinks he’s been out long enough, he starts scratching at the sliding glass door until it sounds like he’s going to bust it down. However, he’s not a barker so he would be a good apartment pug.

Many potential adopters would shy away from Galileo because they think he has ‘special needs’. Well that just isn’t true, the only need he has is the same as any other pug, he wants to be loved and cared for. Lord knows that he hadn’t been cared for previously so he really deserves to have a family that will love him like he deserves. Galileo is a special pug, but he’s special for who he is not his blindness!





GarthPH ID: #828
Garth is a fawn male. He comes to us from a local kill shelter. He is 2 years old. He is heartworm positive and has begun treatment. He has been neutered, microchipped and brought current on his vaccinations.

From Garth's foster: GARTH is an easy-going, extremely happy, smart, curious dog. I am having so much fun with him. He loves to play fetch. He loves tug-o-war. Since he entered our home I have set up a toy box again. He rummages through it to find the toy he wants to play with that day. Garth's potty training was completed very quickly so that is not a problem. He loves to go on his 2 walks a day. He is a friend to every dog he meets, and is wonderful with folks of all ages.. This dog is a lover not a fighter. I see him as a wonderful addition to a family with kids. He loved to play and sleeps right beside you in bed. Just a great dog.

Garth is being treated for heartworm at this time. He is doing well.

GenePH ID: #4669
Gene is a young male Bugg (Boston Terrier/Pug mix) that was found running up and down a street looking for someone to play with him. He was scanned for a microchip, but there was not one. He is going to be neutered and updated on vaccines.





GenePH ID: #4996
Gene is a male pug that comes to PugHearts looking for a new home.

From Gene's foster: Gene is a beautiful, 9 year old pug. He came to us as an owner surrender through no fault of his own. Another, bigger dog in the household had been attacking him periodically. We were happy that he was surrendered to PugHearts. He is healing from his wounds, but sadly is heartworm positive. Gene is a super sweet and smart pug. He loves to hang out with his foster mom and human brother. He is learning potty training and hopes to do better with this after he is neutered. He learned the routine in his foster home very quickly He loves to play with his stuffed hedgehogs and often falls asleep with one in his mouth. So cute! Gene will be with PugHearts until after his heartworm treatment. He already has a forever family waiting for him as soon as he is well!





GenePH ID: #5230
Gene is a 4 month old male Chihuahua mix puppy that comes to us with his siblings from a shelter.

From Gene's foster: Gene is your typical rambunctious little boy and much smaller of the three. When he first arrived all he wanted to do was chew on my toes and fingers. I've broken him of that nasty habit but he still chews, just on nylabones, bark, grass, his sisters, the other pugs, etc. He loves to cuddle also and will snuggle up under your neck when held close. Gene and his sister are so smart, they understand the outside potty concept, keep their crate clean of poop and pee and go right to their crate when prompted.





GenePH ID: #358
Gene is a fawn male. He is 2 years old. He is heartworm negative. He has been neutered, microchipped and brought current on his vaccinations. He is in good health. Gene is a happy, high energy guy. He loves to play chase and if nobody will chase him he will chase his own tail!

From Gene's foster: Gene is a bundle of energy! He enjoys running around outside, playing fetch with the ball, and being chased around by the other dogs. He gets along well with everyone here, and would do fine in a household with an Alpha dog since he is more of a follower than a leader! Gene has no problem being vocal, and telling you when he wants something. I'm sure pretty soon he is going to actually say a complete sentence! When he's not playing, Gene wants to be a lap dog, and will curl up just right to fit on your lap. He is definitely a lover not a fighter, with a tongue that is a mile long and wants to kiss you constantly! He uses the doggy door with no problems, and has never had an accident in the house! We are working now on basic commands, and when he's not too excited, he seems to be picking up on them pretty fast. Gene is a wonderful dog, always wanting to please, and will make an outstanding pet for someone wanting an energetic dog!!!!!

Geneva is a sweet female that comes to us from a local shelter.





GentryPH ID: #5299
Gentry is a 7 yr old male from a local shelter. He has untreated dry eye and severe dental disease. He is heartworm negative and already neutered.

From Gentry's foster: Gentry is such a special little guy. He’s around 7 and an amazing pug. He came to us with a really bad eye that required removal but it didn’t even phase him. He came home after the surgery and wanted to play with me and all the other pugs. Gentry was an owner surrender to a shelter and I can see that he was a pet at one time. He’s house trained, loves to sleep in bed with me and is quite the cuddler. He also makes the best noises when he’s playing, it’s almost like he’s talking.

Gentry will have his teeth cleaned on August 28th and after that he will be actively seeking his permanent home. I highly recommend him for consideration to any home, he’s pretty much perfect. Plus, he’s black and the white he’s getting just makes him more handsome. The black guys just get cuter the older they get.





GentryPH ID: #930
Gentry is a 5 year old male that came to us from a hoarding situation. He is neutered and heartworm negative. Gentry is a wonderful guy and craves attention from his people. He is a bit timid with loud noises and fast movements, but will lay in your arms forever. He is housebroken and loves to just follow you from place to place in the house. Gentry gets along well with other dogs and will allow them to be the boss. He is not interested in a power struggle.

Gentry is looking for a family that has LOTS of time and attention to give him. He needs a calm and consistent place to learn to trust and come out of his shell. This fine boy is going to make some lucky family a great addition to their world.





GeorgePH ID: #3262
George is a 6 yr old black male. Bonded to Sophie. heartworm positive





GeorgePH ID: #76
George is a handsome fawn male who is approximately 1 year old. He was an owner surrender which is a good thing since he was kept outside! He is in good health and has no known medical problems. He has been brought up to date on his vaccinations, microchipped and neutered.

George is a sweet little guy but is a bit timid. He is going to need a family that will have the love and patience to teach him all he needs to know. He will need to be housebroken as well as taught cool things like sitting for treats. Given his age, it should not be too difficult to teach him new tricks.





GeraldinePH ID: #4717
This sweet baby girl was thrown from a car. She also appears to have mange. We will update soon.

From Geraldine's foster: Prior to being rescued, this sweet 5 year old girl was kept tied up outside and was eventually found after being thrown from a car. She's been through a lot, but you would never know it based on her attitude. She is full of energy and love. Geraldine loves people and all dogs (big and small). She loves to play outside, play tug of war and chew on bones. She also enjoys sneakily stashing toys and bones in her bed :) Geraldine has really opened up and is a great companion. She is very playful, but knows when it's time to settle down and will curl up right next to you. She loves to be praised and responds well to corrections. She is potty trained and doesn't mind being in a crate. She is heartworm positive and will begin treatment soon. Geraldine is a sweetheart with lots of love to give! Geraldine is heartworm positive and will have to go through heartworm treatment prior to being adopted.

Gerti is a fawn female. Gerti is about 5 and was rescued from a breeder in south Texas. She is very small as you can see but she makes up for that with her big personality. In the short time I have been her foster, she has not left my side. This little girl needs someone who can give her the attention she deserves. Gerti has been spayed and is house broken. She gets along great with my 3 pugs and is very playful. Gertis tail might be mistaken for a cinnamon bun as its the curliest one I've ever seen. Shes also quite the wiggle worm.

GertiePH ID: #4408
Gertie is a fawn, five year old owner surrender from Louisiana. She is heartworm negative, a bit underweight, and came to us with some skin issues due to fleas. She's completed her antibiotics, and with a proper diet will have a thick, healthy coat in no time. Gertie does fine with children and other dogs, but would be just as happy being the only child. She has a feisty personality, and loves to play with her squeaky toys, but hasn't quite figured out how to play with other dogs. For a pug, Gertie is stingy with her kisses, and has just started to enjoy cuddling with her foster mom.





GherkinPH ID: #312
Do you remember our "Pickle" pug imposter? Well, here's our latest "Gherkin!"

We were asked to take in a stray "pug" but when we picked him up we could obviously tell he was no pug. However, he needed us so we took him in. We think he is a poodle/terrier mix and is about 5 or 6 years old. His is a little guy. Unfortunately he is severe heartworm positive so he will begin treatment shortly. He will also be neutered. He has been brought current on his vaccinations and microchipped. He's a really sweet boy who just loves attention.

From Gherkin's foster: He is very sweet and trusting. He is almost blind but learned my home and yard quickly. He has completed HW treatment. He would do best with another dog for a companion. He loves to sleep in the bed and be hear his person. He gets along with other animals, plays with toys, enjoys being outdoors if with another dog or person.





GiaPH ID: #4841
Gia was able to come home last night. She was spayed and had her nares done yesterday. She does have dry eye but the gunky eye isn't damaged, it just has drainage which should stop when she has been cared for awhile. Very beautiful girl.

Gia is heartworm negative and looking for her forever home.






GiannaPH ID: #4985
Gianna is a 6 year old fawn female.





GibsonPH ID: #1062
Gibson is a 5 yr old fawn male. He is already neutered and is heartworm negative.

From Gibson's foster: Gibby is all about play. He has times of high activity and then moments where he will readily cuddle on the couch. As soon as he sees you enter the room he gets a toy in his mouth, approaches you and expects you to play with him. He likes tug-of-war and running to chase thrown balls. He really loves to climb up on your chest and lick your face. He gets along with children and other pegs wonderfully.

His beautiful face perfectly announces his playful demeanor, but he can certainly get a “sad pug” face going when he needs it to secure treats or the prized place on the couch. He is heartworm negative and hasn’t any real health problems.

He doesn’t like to have his folds or ears cleaned. You have to be crafty about getting those done. Gibby does not care for crates or gates. If you have to use a gate he will jump up on it while you are closing. He loves to wander around the backyard with one of his toys in his mouth. So far he has brought them all back inside – without having to be told!
