WELCOME TO PUGHEARTS OF HOUSTON PUG RESCUE
PugHearts of Houston Pug Rescue is a true 501(c)(3) non-profit charity founded in
the Houston area by dedicated pug owners and lovers. Our mission is the rescue,
rehabilitation and permanent placement of needy pugs into loving homes.
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 or photos.
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 can post.
This change does not affect any existing facebook group members in any way.
However, with these new changes our FB Group
is now only visible to existing members. None of our posts or images are available to be viewed by anyone not a current member of our Group. This ensures the safety of our members as well as the protection of our content.
To become a member of our FB Group
, simply go to our FB Group
page and request to join. Our Administrators will take a quick peek at your profile to ensure you are a genuine pug-loving person (and not a SPAM bot) and with one click they will add you as a member. If your FB 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 and read to your heart’s content. Just remember to play nice and refrain from abusive posts. We want to encourage and educate Pug lovers by making this a welcoming and nurturing environment.
So come on over to our FB Group
page and see what’s happening with your fellow Pug lovers!

PUG OF THE MOMENT
|Ruby||PH ID: #1096|
|Ruby is a fawn female. She is about 5 years old. She is heartworm positive and will begin treatment shortly.|
From Ruby's foster: Meet Ruby! This little gem of a girl will steal your heart within minutes! Ruby is estimated to be about 5 years old, and from what we can tell, had been used as a breeding momma. Ruby has what I heard called, a "magic eye". One of her eyes never fully developed, and although she can't see with it, I think she magically uses it to see into her people's minds.convincing them that they must pick her up and hold her like a baby or let her on their lap to snuggle. She sees just fine from her other eye, and believe me, it doesn't slow her down one bit! She loves to play with our other dogs, and loves to suckle on a stuffed toy. She likes bones too - she's an equal opportunity kind of player! She even does well with our cats!
Although not a strong alpha personality, she is a diva, and she will stand her ground or tell the other dogs what's what if they are bothering her. Because of her past as a breeder, her housebreaking skills are still being worked on. She doesn't seem to know what a backyard is really for - she sees it as a personal playground or sun bathing area..but not really a potty. However, if you put her harness on and take her for a walk - then she does her business just fine! As long as she's taken consistently (3 potty walks a day), she has been doing well with her potty skills. I think she will learn with time in whatever home she is in. Ruby unfortunately is heart worm positive, but will undergo treatment soon and be ready to find her forever home!
