Story
    Marlo and Iggy are a fantastic, bonded pair, who have been at the rescue for 9 years, almost their entire lives. Marlo is Iggy’s mother, but they are very close in age. When they arrived, they were very young. Marlo has always been an angel, but Iggy was untrained and would sometimes bite, especially people he didn’t know. We have been working with him all these years, and his behavior has greatly improved. Actually, both Marlo and Iggy are extremely friendly and affectionate, and they love to spend time with people, cuddling, playing, and getting belly rubs. However, on a rare occasion, Iggy will still bite, but it is almost always someone he doesn’t recognize. This is the only reason they are still at the rescue and it will take a special, experienced and patient person, who would consider coming to meet them more than once, to give them they chance they so deserve.             Marlo is a Shih Tzu, about 11 years old and 12 pounds. Iggy is a Shih Tzu/Terrier mix, about 10 old and 14 pounds. They both have remained very happy, energetic, and upbeat, and they get along with other dogs. Marlo and Iggy love each other and all the staff and volunteers at the rescue, who they interact with so beautifully (see video).  If you believe you are that special someone for Marlo and Iggy, please put in an application today. Please watch the video at the end of the photos to see this beautiful duo in action. Maybe you will be the one to give them a chance.   IMPORTANT; WE ADOPT ONLY IN SOUTH FLORIDA BUT MAKE SOME EXCEPTIONS IN APPROXIMATE AREAS OF Naples, Ft.

Story
 There is a very good reason why this adorable, beautiful Shih Tzu has been at the rescue for over 4 years. Geoffrey David is a special boy, who needs a special person to call his own. His behavior suggests he was abused from a very early age. When he arrived, this young boy was very untrusting and a defensive biter. We have patiently and consistently shown him love, care, and compassion, and he has been watching the other dogs happily embrace human attention and petting for years. All said, Geoffrey David has made remarkable improvements in his behavior. He is now happy and relaxed, seeks attention and enjoys being petted. There is a sweetness in him coming through. He is very camera shy, but has even begun to allow some videos.             We believe the right person is out there for Geoffrey David, who has experience with a similar type of dog. They must be patient, calm, and understanding, and willing to give him the time he needs to trust. Geoffrey David has his limits and will give a warning snap/bite if pushed beyond his comfort zone. He currently does not want to be picked up, held, or go for leash walks, although this could change with time. He will need a fenced yard. Geoffrey David enjoys the company of other nice dogs, and gets along great with his group at the rescue. He is now about 9 years old and 14 pounds. If you believe you are a great match for Geoffrey David, please put in an application today. Please watch the video at the end of the photos to see more of this special boy. We look forward to seeing more of his true, wonderful self come through.    April 11, 2024, 12:04 pm

Story
Mr Personality best describes our adorable Cobe. An 9 1/2  years old, 17 pounds, Shih Tzu boy, nothing keeps Cobe from loving life. Cobe was surrendered to us with one non-visual eye ( ? old injury or neglect), and one eye recent blinded by a rapid onset cataract. It was no surprise to find out Cobe has diabetes; what a shame his prior owners didn’t detect and treat him for this. He takes insulin twice daily with no problems and is doing extremely well. Potentially, he could be given sight by cataract surgery. Cobe is a very happy, well adjusted, very affectionate little guy. He loves other dogs and all people, as well as going for walks, getting belly rubs, and just sitting on your lap or being held. His love of life is contagious and endearing... all he wants is someone special to share it with. Could that special someone be you? Please watch the video at the end of the photos to see Cobe enjoying some activities, including his favorite; playing with squeaky toys. He is such an amazing, fun, and happy boy!  April 11, 2024, 12:04 pm

Story
People often ask us who is the dog most in need of adoption at the rescue. Although we have many seniors and dogs with medical issues, Mochi Mae certainly stands out because of her unique situation and her young age. Mochi Mae has been at the rescue about 3 years, arriving as a puppy about 6 months old. She is a very special, wonderful girl, who oozes sweetness and love. She gets along great with everyone, including all the other dogs. So why is this beautiful, young sweetheart still at the rescue?  Mochi Mae suffered an injury to her lower back and pelvis very early in her life, prior to coming to the rescue. It left her incontinent of urine and feces (she basically drips urine and drops small, formed stools without control). For this reason alone, Mochi Mae will likely spend her entire life at the rescue, unless someone with a big heart steps up for her. This person would have to be willing and able to manage her issues with compassion, including frequent washing, diapers at times, and not disturbed by small accidents.             Mochi Mae is a Shih Tzu, about 3 1/2 years old and 10-11 pounds. She is super friendly with everyone and always nicely welcomes the new dogs to the rescue. She is not in any pain, and can walk, run, and jump without difficulty. She cuddles and snuggles in a heartwarming way, and plays very adorably with toys and the other dogs. Please watch the video at the end of the photos to see Mochi Mae enjoying her people time and playing with some of her pals. Both other dogs in the video have been adopted, but there is also a cute video of her playing with Socket on his webpage. If you believe you can go the extra mile for Mochi Mae, please put in an application today and/or call Harriet for more information. We all adore Mochi Mae and you certainly will too.April 11, 2024, 12:04 pm
