Story
Reef is a 13 month old Doberman who came to the shelter as a stray at 12 weeks. I adopted him at 14 weeks. He has a lot of energy and needs to run daily. He lives with 2 kids and has a farm, unfortunately he likes to herd things he shouldn’t, like the goats, and will taunt the horses. He chases chickens and will pin them down if he catches them. He is good with other dogs of all sizes, and cats that stand their ground. He will chase a cat that will run. He trail rides with the horses and likes to clear the path. He loves to run and is very fast. He is good with the kids, but does sometimes run too fast past them and has knocked them over. He is crate trained. He walks on a gentle leader, but will pull with a collar or harness. Reef needs an experienced adopter, preferably one who has had Dobermans before. I have had ann increase in my schedule recently and cannot offer him the time he deserves. He is getting easily overstimulated lately with the lack of time I have had.

Central, FL

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.
