Story
Lucí is a rescue from a foster who placed an ad on Facebook about 6 - 7 yrs ago. Don’t know her exact birthday or age since her original owner never gave us nor the foster Luci’s (previously named Sassy) records, however, when we took her to the vet they estimated that she was about a year old at the time. She has no health issues, was spayed once we got the green light from the vet, & is a perfectly energetic dog. She certainly lives up to her breed with being very affectionate, playful, & alert. She loves going on walks, isn’t too fond of going on drives or baths, & is certainly a “People Poochie”. She also CAN be aggressive towards other dogs so no roommates. We’re looking for a new forever home for her because, unfortunately, between work (we all work) & studies, we don’t have the time to give her the proper attention & physical activity she needs. We want to make sure she gets the best quality of life & being stuck in the house all day isn’t fair for her.

Story
Hi, my name is Alfredo. I am approximately 3 years old and weigh 24 pounds. I was brought to Paws4you because my owners gave up on me. I admit, I need time to bond and I have my dislikes and likes. I require a patient adopter due to some possessiveness. I tend to love food and toys way too much but I'm learning to be nice and share. It won't be easy, but the love I'll give will be unconditional. The best home for me will have adults only without anyone elderly. I need to be the only animal in the home so that I get all your attention. I’m looking for calm adults who can help me adjust and become the best version of myself. Please give me a chance. I've been at Paws4you for 2 years, way too long! Adopt me! EXPERIENCED 'BEHAVIORAL' OWNERS ONLY. ADULTS ONLY. MUST BE THE ONLY ANIMAL IN THE HOME.

COURTESY LISTING - NOT A PAWS4YOU DOG. IF INTERESTED PLS CONTACT 305-439-0085 OR keypsychiatry@gmail.com Where did you get your dog? (e.g., stray, shelter, friend, breeder): Havanese / Maltese breeder If you got your dog from a breeder what was the Kennel Name/Breeder Name: we don't know. He was a gift for my mom when my father passed away Dog's Weight: 17 Dog's Name: Benji Dog's Age: 13 Is your dog:: Neutered City Dog is Located: Parkland State Dog Is Located In: Florida Please make selection below.: Certify Good with cats?: Not sure Describe in detail anything listed above: He's never been exposed to cats, he absolutely loves his sibling dogs over the years. My mom always had 2-3 because she'd rescue other dogs. He's lived with a total of 7 dogs of 13 years. Reaction with dogs?: Barks Describe in detail anything listed above: He is the protector of all dogs, and the person he is closest to. If there is a new dog introduced to the family, it doesn't take him long to let the dog know he is the boss. He will stand as tall as his legs will take him, face the dog, and release a few strong barks. He doesn't attack any people or dogs. I've never met a dog that didn't stand down when Benji barks at them. He's my mom's dog, but our Doberman was put in his place from when he came home at 5 months old. Axel is 2 and still allows Benji to be the alpha dog :) Reaction with children under 12?: Friendly Describe in detail anything listed above: He loves everyone in the family. He guards them, and protects them. He's raised my three daughters since the eldest is 12 and the twins are 9. He'd always appreciate any stuffed animal any of the girls would give him. He will take his toy to his place for safe keeping, always go back and give whoever gives him a stuffed animal something in return within his reach. If nothing is accessible, he will take a dog toy from the box and give it to that person. if the person forgets to take it when they get up, he will drop it off next to that person's bed to be found later. Reactions with children over 12?: Friendly Describe in detail anything listed above: He's been with our family always. The girls are older now. He is equally loving and their protector. He expects to sit with you to watch TV. He needs his own small blanket on the couch for a movie, or will take yours without skipping a beat. Since my mom had the accident, he asks to sleep with one of my daughters. he sticks to the twins bedroom mostly, but sometimes I find him snuggled next to our Doberman by morning Dog's Reaction to Grooming: Enjoys Describe in detail anything listed above: he's used to begin bathed weekly Dog's Reaction to Vet Visit: Dog is generally comfortable Describe in detail anything listed above: he may start shaking once you get in the car leaving the vet. It's likely because he was nervous. Does this dog have special needs?: He can still see, but his vision is compromised by cataracts on both eyes. Explain the circumstances prompting you to request assistance for the dog, or why you desire to surrender this dog to HRI.: My 82yo Mom suffered a fall with Benji 2 weeks ago that puts us in an absolutely terrible position. She has multiple fractures that are unfortunately inoperable. 7 fractures in total. Her bone lesions due to advanced cancer make this recovery very long and tedious. All orthopedics involved in her case have driven home the message very clearly. She can no longer be in the company of any small dogs what so ever. After rehab, Mom will need to live with us for an undefined amount of time. Not only can she no longer have her little partner Benji with her, but our family can not have any small dog in our home at all if she is to spend any time with us during or after recovery. She would not survive another fall.

Story
Hi, my name is Oslo. I am approximately 1 year old and weigh 9 pounds. Someone found me and brought me to Paws4you. My skin doesn't look so good right now because I have a skin condition that the vet said is from malnutrition. I got shaved too since my fur was a mess. You can see my before and after pictures. Now that I am getting fed properly, my fur should start growing back in and I’ll be a fluffy little guy soon. I am a sweet little pup! I’m a bit shy at first but warm up quickly. I am affectionate and love belly rubs and pets! I like to lean against you and put my head on your lap. After being neglected and on the street, I really want to find a furever home soon. I’m looking for a family that will shower me with love and attention. Adopt me!

Story
MIAMI FLA. Mother and daughter so beautiful Poodle and Maltese mix. Came from a backyard breeder. Mama's name is Luna she is 5 yrs old about 12 ibs. Bebe is her daughter about 3 yrs old and approximately 10 ibs. They are very loving what I call a lap dogs. They are very bonded sleep and eat together. Both are totally vetted and ready to go to their loving home. I WILL NOT SEPARATE THEM SO DONT ASK. I have started to train them to walk on a leash with a harness. Both are crate trained and are always playing and running together. Great with kids and the mama Luna can become jealous so it would be best to adopt them to a home where they will both be the divas of the house. You must own your own home. NO RENTERS. THE BACKYARD HAS TO BE FENCED IN WITH PVC METAL WOOD OR CONCRETE. NO CHAINLINKED FENCES. PLEASE CALL ME AT 305 785 7824 TO SET UP YOUR MEET AND GREET AND SEE THESE GORGEOUS DOGS.
