HAPPY BIRTHDAY PUGHEARTS
February 14th 2015 was PugHeart's birthday. This year we are 8 years old.
I spent yesterday looking back at photos, emails and Facebook posts from this
amazing organization. The feelings that I experienced looking at them all were
overwhelming. I felt total joy, viewed amazing success and remembered some of
the intense pain that came with the losses and sweet faces we were not able to
We started PugHearts with a few people sitting in my den with high ideals and
big dreams. We never expected to achieve so much or make such an expansive
difference. I am proud to say that those people in my den are still a part of
PugHearts. That makes me very happy. PugHearts has rescued over 1600+ pugs in
the 8 years since we began. That level of success is not achieved by one person,
one group or by accident.
That level of success is achieved together….by all of us. Together we can do
anything, manage anything and create miracles. Our mission to save the pugs that
need us has united a group of people that are beyond what the greatest
imagination would hope for if they were designing this group from their dreams.
You are ALL amazing. We each bring unique and important skills and gifts to the
pugs we rescue. I thank you each for that. So for those just being introduced to
PugHearts, we try to keep it simple.
PugHearts will take any pug, at any age, in any condition…..anytime.
Thank you and Happy Birthday to PugHearts.

PUG OF THE MOMENT
|Sam||PH ID: #4573|
|Sam is an imposter. He is not a Pug and not even a Chug. He is 100% pure Chihuahua in both actions and physical appearance. He weighs in at less than 5 pounds and is a little smaller than a Guinea pig. He is 12 years old and spent the first 12 years of his life confined to a crate or a small patch of dirt…. outside. Sam is very timid and scares easily. He will snap out of fear but never from aggression (and his mouth is too small to bite anyway). Sam is terrified of other dogs and is on my lap or on the couch with me at all times, he hates being on the floor with the other fosters. He will not drink water while any of the others are even close to the water bowl. He is food aggressive and I feed him in his crate so he’s not worried someone will steal his food.|
With all of that being said, Sam is the sweetest, most loving little guy I have ever had! As with most Chi’s, he’s a one person guy. He adores me and is constantly cuddled up to my chin. He loves to be kissed and will push his little head to my mouth if I stop before he wants me to. He loves to be pet and he also likes to play. He will pounce on his tiny front feet and start growling and wagging his tail and he will attack my hand and just growl and snarl. He’s so darn cute there just aren’t words to describe him. He loves to sleep with me and is an expert at cuddling. I lost quite a bit of sleep at first because I was concerned that I was going to roll over on him and hurt him.
Sam is my very special Little Man. He is so tiny and vulnerable that he needs to always have someone to protect and take care of him. I made him a promise that he would always be taken care of and he would never be cold, lonely or unloved again. If you think you may be able to keep that promise to him, you just may be who he needs.
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
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
