Story
Meet our delightful 8-month-old handicapped pup, GILBERT! Despite facing challenges, this little one is full of life, playfulness, and love. He does need some work on housebreaking. This sweet pup is eagerly searching for a forever home with someone who can offer the time and care he deserves.Despite his handicap, GILBERT loves interactive play and is sure to keep you entertained. He is sweet and affectionate…ready to shower you with love and cuddles at any moment.He enjoys meeting new human friends and other gentle pets. GILBERT’S ideal home would be with someone who works from home or only works part-time away from the house. A caring and attentive environment is a must and will allow him to thrive. GILBERT is medically cleared for adoption and has seen a neurologist twice. It has been recommended he NOT be placed in wheels as a “normal” daily thing. He has worked hard to build up his hind muscles and does amazingly well “walking” while not being able to feel those hind legs. If you believe you can provide the loving and nurturing home that GILBERT needs, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us for a meet-and-greet session. Message the page with any questions or apply for adoption at HaveAHeartFL.org

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 8 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.    February 26, 2024, 12:15 am

Story
Cuteness galore!  Mochi Mae is a super friendly, happy, and sweet little girl. Her fun loving spirit lights up the room and makes us all smile. She loves to be with people, and especially enjoys cuddling in a cozy lap, playing with toys, and romping in the yard. Mochi Mae also loves to play with other dogs, and does so in such a beautiful, gentle, and fun way. All the other dogs absolute love Mochi Mae.             Mochi Mae is a Shih Tzu, about 2 years 1/2 old and 11 pounds. There is only one reason she has yet to be adopted. When she arrived, Mochi Mae was evaluated by a neurologist, who diagnosed prior trauma to her lower back and pelvis. She was healed, but the injury left her urinary incontinent and partially fecal incontinent. She also cannot move or feel her tail, (which is why it is not wagging in the video.) She is not in any pain now, and can walk, run, and jump without any difficulty. Mochi Mae has been with us for over 2 yearS and her condition has not changed, and probably will not improve. She is otherwise strong and healthy.             With the right person, there is no reason Mochi Mae cannot live a long and happy life. This person should have a big heart, and be willing to manage her issues, (frequent washing, diaper at times, not disturbed by small accidents). Mochi Mae is such a special, wonderful girl who oozes sweetness and love, that it will be worth going the extra mile for her. If you believe you are that person, please put in an application today. Please watch the video at the end of the photos to see amazing Mochi Mae as she enjoys her people time and playing with some of her pals,oth boys have been adopted. We will continue to love and care for this little beauty, as we wait for the right person to step up.February 26, 2024, 12:15 am

Story
Sasha and Scarlett are a mother/daughter duo that have been at the rescue more than 8 years. They are close in age, and arrived at the kennel when they were very young. They have grown into magnificent, gorgeous ladies, who are full of life, love and energy. We are still hoping to adopt them together, but they can be adopted separately. Please see their individual listings on our website for more photos, videos, and more detailed descriptions. February 26, 2024, 12:15 am

Story
Eva and Theodore are a young, super fun, high energy, bonded pair. They are very happy, friendly, and sweet, and simply enthusiastic about life. Eva and Theodore do everything with gusto, and love to romp in the yard, play fetch and play with toys. They also enjoy receiving affection and cuddles.             Eva and Theodore are Shih Tzu. Eva has the tan ears, and is about 4 years old and 14 pounds. Theodore has the white ears, and is about 1 1/2 years old and 11 pounds. It would be best for their new home to have a nice fenced yard for them to run in and use their energy. This awesome pair will surely bring lots of life and love to a new family. If you believe you are a great match for Eva and Theodore, please put in an application today. Please watch the video at the end of the photos to see Eva and Theodore enjoying life. They are fantastic!February 26, 2024, 12:15 am
