Story
Everyone say hi to Arfie, a 5 year old 32 lb shih tzu boy. Yes you read that right, Arfie weighs 32 lbs and is in need of a home that will take him on walks and give him the opportunity to shed some much need pounds---with that said this little boy is an " absolute gentleman" according to his foster mom. Arfie came to us after his elderly owner was unable to care for him longer due to her own personal issues----Arfie has come a long way from intake a few months ago when he was all of 39lbs!!! He just wants to please everyone, has excellent house manners and deserves a chance at a great life in a loving home. He gets along with EVERYONE and has yet to meet a person he doesn't wag his little tail at. Arfie apparently had a history of seizures when he was with his previous owner but since we have had him (and put him on medication) he has not had a single one. If interested in adopting this darling boy please fill out an application at www.floridacockerrescue.org ADOPTION FEE: $300.00

Story
Top of the day kind folks! My name is Tabitha and I am a 2 year old 11 lb white shih tzu girl in search of my forever home. I was rescued by FCCR with several of my friends (also available for adoption) and now we are in the best of hands! Foster mom says I am a sweet and beautiful girl- quiet, demure, and most of all loyal. I am still coming out of my shell and can be somewhat shy at first but that's because everything is still so new to me - I just need to feel at home and then my full loving personality will shine thru for everyone to see!!! I am also working on my housetraining and leash skills, and with my human by my side to encourage and love me, those too I will master---I am a smart girl! If interested in adopting me and making part of your family please fill out an application at www.floridacockerrescue.org ADOPTION FEE: $450.00

Hello world! My name is Benji and I am a 6 year old 11 lb shih tzu boy looking for my forever family. Sadly my former human took ill and could no longer care for me -BUT the ladies at FCCR immediately came to my rescue and promised to find me my perfect home....yayyyy! Foster mommy says I am a loving boy once I know you- at first I may be a little aloof but I'm just "sizing" things up to make sure it's safe for a little guy like me....after all you can never be too careful. I'm also a shih tzu so it's a breed thing... BUT after I bond with you watch out! I will want cuddles and hugs and will be your most loyal companion and friend. I love car rides, going for walks and adventures, and I get along great with everyone including other dogs too. If interested in adopting me please fill out an application at www.floridacockerrescue.org ADOPTION FEE: $395.00

Hi-de-ho Hi-de-hi... It's me Bella and I'm in search of my piece of the sky -aka forever home! I am a 5 year old 16 lb ( yessssssss I need to go on a diet and foster mommy is making sure I eat my veggies- but I much prefer cheese!) shih tzu girl that just wants a family to call her very own.

If you are a book reader I will sit by you...if you are a TV watcher I will sit by you ...and if you are an avid walker I will walk by you...I am that devoted to my human and that versatile. And btw I know I need to lose a few pounds so I will welcome those walks!

Story
Thanks to BISSELL Pet Foundation's Empty the Shelters promotion currently underway, my fee has been lowered to $50!Hi, I'm Phillip! I'm a senior Shih Tzu survivor from a puppy mill who was very neglected. I'm a very sweet boy, an angel really. I don't mind other dogs or cats. I just need a comfortable bed and a little love in my life. I'm so thankful that Guardians of Florida Animal Rescue took me under their wing to give me a chance at a forever home for my golden years. I came in with infected eyes and in dire need of a full dental and major extractions. I'm also Heartworm positive and my rescue will cover all that I need to deal with that. I know my new family is out there somewhere! I am estimated at around 11-12 years old. My adoption fee is currently just $50, thanks to the Bissell Empty the Shelters program currently underway. That includes my up to date shots, wellness check, deworming, microchip, dental, extractions and neuter...all already done, as well as any necessary Heartworm treatment. Adopter must be local to the Fort Myers area or willing to travel here for any heartworm treatment my vet may recommends. Please go to www.gofar.dog under "Adopt" to complete an application.If you have questions, email my rescue at adoptions@gofar.dog.

Story
Milo is an incredible companion dog. He has been my best friend for the past 5 years. When we adopted him at 6 months old, he was very timid, and we spent months making him a normal, playful puppy. He has the most gentle soul and gives love to everyone who gives him attention. He’s great with cats, big and small dogs, and children. I recently had a baby and cannot give him the time he needs for the love he is used to receiving. He loves to play but, he also knows when it is time to hang out and be calm. We also travelled with him a lot, and he does very well in the car and at hotels. He is the only dog I’ve ever had, he’s an amazing dog, however he deserves more from his owner.
