Story
Price is negotiable. We want him to have a good home. He is super cute and has a great personality. He loves to play and explore. He is microchipped and unfortunately he was neutered around 10 weeks which is super young. He is up to date and we have a list of shots he will need at some point. He knows that outside time is for potty time. Upon adoption we will give you his crate, food bowl, and two 20 pounds bags of puppy food. He eats dry but likes other things as well. We have been feeding him at 8 am every morning and 5 pm every day. He gets along well with the other two medium sized dogs we have and he loves to play with them. He isnt scared of much which is good. More info upon request. He is an awesome puppy and doesnt run away when left off leash.

Story
Priscilla is a lovely 11 year old terrier mix girl who hasn't had the best care in the world, yet she still has a loving heart and is a gentle soul. Priscilla was found wandering the streets of dade county where she came to our attention in needing rescue...and how could we say anything but "YES OF COURSE"...she is just too cute and too sweet! This 28 lb darling will never have a full body of hair but that is working to her advantage in that there is very little to no shedding :-). Priscilla is completely housetrained and is totally low keyed- very little to no barking unless she is in need to go potty or if she is ready for dinner- this sweet little lady is really well mannered. Priscilla is hard of hearing and she suffers from dry eye issues but drops can be purchased over the counter for that. If interested in adopting Priscilla please fill out an application at www.floridacockerrescue.org ADOPTION FEE: $175.00

Story
Lulu is a beautiful 10 year old/10 lb yorkie whose foster Mom says is the sweetest and easiest dog ever! Ok she might be a little biased, ? but Lulu is a truly classy lady. FCCR welcomed her with open arms after her owner died and no one else in the family stepped up to take her. Lulu loves to be near her humans and occasionally will jump into your lap, gaze into your eyes, wait for a belly rub and then jump back down and go to sleep. Lulu is vision impaired (she may see shadows) and does not hear well if at all but if you leave the room, she will wake up and follow you! She is pee-pad trained, enjoys sitting outside on the lanai and loves to go outside. She enjoys slow walks. She gets along with dogs but we don’t know about cats. If you are interested in adopting this loving teddy bear, please fill out an application at www.floridacockerrescue.org. Adoption fee is $225.00.

Story
Meet Geoffrey! This little puppy nugget (8 months old in December) is a Terrier mix large breed and currently weighs 6 pounds and growing. His foster Mom says he is a silly willy pup who loves people, especially kids, and cuddling with them and sleeping the big bed. He loves toys and playing in the yard with his foster siblings. He wears his collar proudly but has not figured out how to walk on a leash yet. Not unexpectedly he is not housebroken and will need a patient adopter to work with him on his house manners, basic training and leash walking. He is a lovable little boy who is ready for his next adventure. Maybe with YOU?! If you are interested in adopting Geoffrey, please complete an application through our website, www.floridacockerrescue.org. His adoption fee is $250.
