PUG OF THE MOMENT
|Lucille||PH ID: #860|
|Lucille is a fawn female. She is 3-4 years old. She came to us after she was rescued from a neglectful home. She is heartworm positive and will begin treatment shortly. |
From Lucille's foster: Lucille (or Lucy Lou as we call her) couldn't be a sweeter girl. Since the day we brought her home from Dr. Hendrix's office, she instantly became a part of the family and gets along great with our other 2 dogs. Lucy is about 4 years old, already potty trained and is very good on a leash. I swear she prances the minute we put her harness on - I think she's proud of it! She's great for anyone who doesn't have a backyard for their pets to do their business - Lucy goes immediately when walked outside and doesn't require much walking or smelling around!
Lucy has a collapsed trachea that requires a special harness for her walks - one that doesn't pull near her throat area. Her collapsing trachea requires twice daily medications and keeps her from being super active. She occasionally has coughing episodes that take her a few minutes to work through. She prefers to sleep on the hard floor and I often have to move her to her soft bed, because I feel bad when she's on the floor... She loves to be around people, so you'll often find her sitting near your feet, under your chair or nearby. She isn't one you'll catch running around, but she's always the first to greet you at the door with a wagging tail. I have yet to hear Lucy bark and we have 2 dogs that bark often in our home. She's very relaxed, but can fend for herself if she needs to.
Lucy can easily climb stairs, but has some difficulty on wood stairs... Sometimes she requires a lift so she doesn't take a tumble. She absolutely LOVES to chew bones and NEVER misses a meal - a true pug! Lucy has an eye condition that requires drops daily. While she's not completely blind, she does have some trouble finding where you are and sometimes you have to wave your hands around and make big movements for her to see where you are.
Lucy needs a home without a lot of activity. She isn't quick to react and in a home with too many other pets she could get easily pushed aside. Lucy has lots of love to give and loves to cuddle. She's a special little girl that always makes us smile and has the best heart. She's a lovely soul and deserves the best forever home with someone who will love her as much as her fosters do.
IMPORTANT FACEBOOK GROUP CHANGES
PugHearts of Houston
has maintained a
Group page on Facebook
for the past several years. We encourage
past adopters, potential adopters, fosters and all Pug lovers to join us! We love
to post and share photos, heartwarming stories and advice on Pugs.
We have always required that potential FB PugHearts Group members submit a request
to join our group in an effort to control SPAM and unauthorized posts. Group posts
were visible to the public, but only approved group members could post comments
However, facebook has recently made some changes to their terms of service which
made the PugHearts Group an “open” group, allowing anyone to post on our FB page.
This resulted in some unfortunate posts which upset many people. It also allows
for unauthorized use of images from our Group and opens our members to breaches
of their privacy. We have now changed the status of our group back to “Closed
which once again requires any new members to submit a request to join before they

profile is brand new or you have a very blank profile, they may ask you for additional
information to verify you are a genuine requestor. Once you are added you can post
