Hooie

Hooie

As told by Hooie's Mom Lisa

Hooie came from a small town called Indio, California. His father decided that he thought his girlfriend was more important than him, and allowed his girlfriend to beat him, lock him in closets for hours on end, and to leave him home alone for days at a time. When Hooie's "new" grandmother Ofelia got wind of how Hooie was being treated, she talked his then dad into giving him to his new Mom and Dad Lisa and Johnny in Oakland, California. He arrived about 2 years ago, and quickly settled into his new home and became the ultimate Velcro-pug that his mommy had always hoped for. Hooie misses his sister Carmen who had to be put to sleep, but enjoys his new sister Tina very much!

Oh bless his little heart. That sounds so much like our Genevieve when she came to live with us. I just can;t understand how anyone could mistreat any dog but especially a little pug. Breaks my heart to think about it. Any way she now has a precious pug brother named Luke and a pit bull sister named Mollie. They are quite a trio and Gevevieve thinks she is top dog. Guess she is !!

God Bless!!!
Hey - happen to know where that girlfriend lives? I’d love to visit her and lock her in a closet for a month or two after I give her the ultimate beat down!!!!
URRRR that makes me so mad to hear!! I have a rescue (Frankie) and I shudder to think what must have happened to him (he is getting better but would cower when we went to pet him - now I can smush that little face with kisses)
Congratulations Hooie! Sounds like you are finally where you were meant to be!
puggles,
Danine, Benee and Frank

I live not too far from Oakland. If you ever get to any of the pug meetups and stuff, let me know. I’d love to meet more pug owners in my area. My email address is afdani1984 at yahoo .com

I am sooo glad that this precious pug has found a good home!!!  It takes a pretty evil person to treat any dog that way.  I hope that girlfriend gets what she deserves some day!!

It makes me so sad how some people mistreat sweet little puggies. I just lost my pug to PDE, and it is hard for me to understand why things like this happen to innocent sweet pugs. I am so glad for hooie, I am thinking about adopting a rescued pug, or maybe two. any suggestions?

I think that the girlfriend should be locked up. This is a precious baby and should not be treaqted like that. I know how much I love my pug, and this breaks my heart. Let’s lock the girlfriend in a closet for a week without food or water. She is a cruel sick freak. Kudos to Lisa and Johnny!!  smile

God Bless Hooie! I also have a pug named Pugsly, and we live in Alameda, and I’m sure he would love to meet Hooie! Please email me at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) if you think Hooie would enjoy his company too.

What a tragic, horrifying story.  Thank God that Hooie is now a happy pug.  Many blessings on Gramma Ofelia for taking poor Hooie out of his miserable life.  Shame on the girlfriend, and shame on the “dad” for allowing such treatment.  He will always be a “velcro” dog because he is so grateful to be so loved.

Mystee, I would suggest going through petfinder.com for your rescues.  I believe that all legit rescue groups have their Pugs posted on there.

I want to have 2 adorable puggies when I grow up. One black, and one tan with black accents. The tan one with black accents will be named Cynthia, and the black one will be named Miranda. I will give Cynthia a blue collar, and Miranda a red collar. I will go everywhere with my pug girls. Broke my heart into tiny pieces, when I heard about poor Hooie. That poor pug! Being beaten up by his own dad’s girlfriend. Must have been torture!

My mom has a little black pug that me and my family love so much. Pugs are so loving. How on earth could anyone be so cruel? I will never understand. I just pray that the good people outnumber the bad and thank you for taking such good care of Hooie. I will try not to cry now….

I am so glad Hooie has a safe home finally and I agree, the girlfriend should be beat. I just lost my 6 year old Pug Emma to PDE on Dec 16. I am heartbroken.  A day does not go by that I don’t think of her and tear up.  I loved her dearly and she will be missed by all who knew her.

So glad to hear that Hooie now has a safe home.  It disgusts me to hear how people mistreat animals, especially Pugs.  I rescued my Pug, CoCo 9 months ago and she was also mistreated.  She is very happy and trusting now.  Amazing what love does for them and how they can learn to trust again after such horrible situations.

Great to have people like us who can save these helpless puggies in bad situations.  How could anyone ever abuse such a cute little puggie.

I’m soooo happy Hooie is with a loving family now. No dog or pug should ever be treated like that.

GRRRRRRR, I cannot stand animal abuse, I am soo glad to hear that hooie is safe now. I have a beautiful tan and black female named bobbit, she was given to my wife and I from one of her coworkers who moved into a new place that didn’t allow pets. I have never been owned by a pug, but , wow, what a personality, I am forever a pug lover, ( all animals actually) but she really melted my heart, now we are inseparable 24/7.I cannot understand how her previous mother gave her away! she’s my baby now and very spoiled. smile

How do you condense a Pug’s life to a few short sentences?  Jazzy is now 14 years old, a little blind, not quite so steady on her feet, but still active and inquisitive.
Jazzy came to me (a trainer) because her breeders determined her temperament was “bad”.  Pshaw!  She was just smarter than them!  Jazzy, in her life, learned to retrieve (and hunted for two seasons), herd sheep (for two years on a FULL pasture) and has done several commercials and a 1/2 hour local special on dogs (San Diego 1998).
We moved about a year ago to a place with a yard for my girl.  Some unmentionable put rat poison over the fence, which I didn’t find until I came home from work, several hours later.  Jazzy fought for her life and won; but suffered a series of strokes as a result.  That was a year ago.  Today, she’s a remarkably healthy 14 year old Pug.  Show her a video of herself as a youngster, and she responds.  She’s in the twilight of her life, and I am so grateful that she’s spent her life as a part of mine.

A very sad story with a happy ending. How anyone could mistreat a little doggie is heartbreaking to me. All doggies need lots of love.

I can’t understand how anyone could look at a pug or any animal and do that to them. Shame on them for that.I can hardly look at my pug (Kona)out the window while i’m driving off. Pugs are the BEST!

People who do anything to an animal should be put away! I have a pug named Kona who is 4 yrs.& She’s my baby.Thank god for people who care enough to help those animals who need it.Hope Hooie can start new life and live like a king!He deserves it.

Hi Hooie!  You are so blessed to have a good home now.  I hope those other people are forgotten out of your little puggy memory.  Sweet pug hugs and kisses to you, precious little puggy!  XXXOOO
