Joey Fishsticks

American Pit Bull Terrier

Male, 1 yr 7 mos
Central, FL
Size
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Details
Good with kids, Good with dogs, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
Joey was rescued from Orange County Animal Services just hours before he was scheduled to be euthanized. He is just a puppy--a year old--and just fun, affectionate, eager-to-please, and loves to play with other dogs. He's quite docile, will take a submissive role with alphas and happy to be around other pups (has been fostered in a home with other foster dogs and does well with all). He has a sad face that we hope will lighten up in a loving home of his own but he is a happy boy just waiting for his forever home to choose him. The adoption fee is a donation to the organization with recurring donations of any amount preferred to help us maintain our rescue services.

Story
Mink is an affectionate, young, energetic, and gorgeous girl with a zest for life who loves to run, jump, fetch, and play but will also Netflix-n-chill after some exercise! She was almost euthanized at Orange County Animal Services but we got her into a loving foster and now a talented trainer who is working with her to become the most adoptable companion! She will benefit from continued training (included with The Everyday Trainer in Orlando or Tampa which we have already paid for) and an experienced adopter.

Story
We are devastated to have to rehome our beautiful 6 y/o havanese/cavalier King Charles, Sasha. She weighs about 15 lbs. We rescued her at 1 y/o. She is very sweet and cuddly and loves attention once she is comfortable with you, but does not like to be picked up. Unfortunately, she has some behavioral issues. We had gotten to a point where her aggressive side was manageable, but the unpredictability of our small children just makes this a bad environment for her. She will bite. She is very smart and trainable. She graduated from a board and train program at Sit Means Sit and can go back anytime for free group lessons. Sadly, she also has a bad back. This has been manageable with monthly Adequan injections, medication, and monthly chiropractic visits, but costs us about $180 a month. Please consider saving this beautiful baby!

Tigger

Catahoula Leopard Dog

Male, Young
Merritt Island, FL
Size
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Details
Not good with dogs, Needs experienced adopter, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
Tigger is a happy soul. He is affectionate and loves to snuggle and be near people but hates going on walks. We have had him since he was a puppy. We have two other dogs and as he has grown, he doesn't always get along with the middle dog, especially when trying to herd her. However, his eyes sparkle when he plays with a horse ball or in the hose doing back flips through the water and will play to the point of exhaustion. He has a heart as big as his size. He's named Tigger from Winnie the Pooh because he's bouncy, flouncy and fun! His beautiful brindle coat even has stripes. He is strongly motivated by treats and loves peanut butter and honey. He will thrive in a single pet household and will provide unconditional love.

Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Despite her squatty little build, Poppy is 10ft tall & bulletproof! High energy and bouncy, she loves toys of all kinds! She is working on her fetch game currently, so when SHE feels like it, she will bring the toy back. Poppy should be the only dog in the home and without any kitties as well. She would love sleeping in bed with you, LOVES comfy blankets and beds! She is also kennel trained and great on leash. Poppy would be the perfect play buddy for an active family!

German Shepherd Dog

Female, Puppy
Cocoa, FL
Size
(when grown) Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
Details
Good with dogs, Not good with cats, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
We acquired her on craigslist. She was listed as a German Shepard wolf mix. We have been put in a situation where we believe it would be better for someone with more time to be able to care for her. She will be a year old in February. Looking for an active person. She is great when running on a leash. A decent size yard, or dedicated place for her to free roam a little is ideal. She is an extremely curious pup. Very playful and loves to be around things that give her attention. She is still a puppy right now so she still has puppy tendencies (nipping, jumping up on people, rambunctious occasionally.) She is protective but not aggressive. Does not bark at anyone, not even the mailman. Sometimes will howl at full moons and when she hears police sirens. The $50 is for the listing fee. Any questions, feel free to ask.
