Would you just look at these brown eyes! Welcome Aubrey Jean to the AMTR family! She is 3yo, 46 lb beauty!. Aubrey is spayed, utd on vaccinations and preventative, and microchipped. See what her foster Mom has to say about this pretty lady: Aubrey is the sweetest, loyal, cuddly doggo you will ever meet. She absolutely loves to be around her family, smushing her face and body on yours. She knows commands and is very committed to impressing her humans. She is crate and potty trained, does well on leash walks, and is dog friendly (with proper slow introductions). She is a silly and loving girl. She will bring something truly special to her forever home. She will take some time to warm up as this sweetie was found as a stray and comes from PRC where she lost her puppies and was very overwhelmed by the environment.

Story
Hi my name is Annabell Grace and I'm a two and half year old teeny tiny 45 lb. american pit bull mix. I was trapped in a field with my sister and taken to the scary shelter.  I was a nervous nelly in the shelter and am so glad this nice rescue came and got me.  I am loving my new life outside the shelter in my foster home!  My days are spent lounging on the couch, I am a couch potato and proud of it! I do not like to be confined in small spaces so I also enjoy the free roam of my home when my humans are not home. I like to carry toys and pull around my blankets to my special spot until I am ready to use them, foster mom says it's soooo cute. I’m still learning what fetch and playing are, my idea of playing is carrying my stuffie around and then ripping it up.  I don't eat the insides because that is disgusting, but it's fun to rip them up! I'm not an overly social butterfly and will need slow and appropriate introductions to any doggy pals.  I did not like my foster sibling at fist, but with time and proper introductions we are best friends now! My ideal home is patient with me, I am timid and shy at first, but will warm up.  I am happy to see you when you get home, but also enjoy my space. I like to be around you and know where you are, I have a fear of missing out. I like to sit next to you on the couch and will greet you with kisses in the mornings.  Adoption fee: $150 which includes her spay, microchip, and vaccines! TO ADOPT PLEASE APPLY ONLINE amtrescue.org                                                                          Please send photos of your home to amtrhomephotos@gmail.com to expedite your application.

Story
MAXX & ME PET RESCUE adoptable dogsDoggy Daycare Pro!Faith - our 'Faithy' :-)   Faith is a beautiful, petite, joyful, blonde and caramel pittie mix. At just around 40lbs, she is the perfect medium size girl. She LOVES and ADORES other dogs and needs her best doggy friends at all times. Her best friends are currently Krissy & Tobie, but Faith is a doggy daycare regular and might be the most popular girl in school. She plays with 50+ dogs at doggy daycare, loves to go in the kiddie pools and splash around, but can also just chill and relax in the shade.   At home, Faith loves everything cozy - blankets, cuddling, sleeping in bed with her humans, giving kisses and a good movie night on the couch. However, as soon as daylight hits, she's ready to run around in the fenced backyard with her friends. She is nervous around most men and takes time to warm up to them, but will come around. She will bark at them at first, but is easily persuaded with treats. She loves women.   In Faith's ideal home, she needs another playful, happy dog (or dogs), someone home often and a secure 6' fenced yard. She has been around all sizes and breeds of dogs and does well with all of them. She can be nervous at times, so a home without young children or young children that visit, is best for her so that they don't let her out.   Faith is spayed, microchipped, up-to-date on vaccines, heartworm negative and on monthly prevention. Her adoption fee is $250.   Adoption applications for Faith can be done at maxxandme.org. Please follow up with one email to maxxandmerescue@gmail.com to confirm receipt of your application.   Maxx & Me is an all volunteer, all foster home rescue and do not have a shelter. Please allow at least 48 hours for applications to be processed (missing information may slow the process, so please take your time and be thoughtful in your answers). All dogs posted are available (so no need to ask). We place dogs based on best home for each dog and not order of applications received. Email us at maxxandmerescue@gmail.com for updates and questions. Thank you for choosing rescue.May 18, 2024, 3:05 pm

This young adult bully girl was found roaming, filthy, thin, flea infested, infected skin and heartworm positive. Now Lacey is spayed, has completed her heartworm treatment, is healthy and ready for her very own family!  Lacey is a happy and playful girl that thrives on attention. She has never met a stranger and LOVES all people, cuddling on the couch, napping with her humans and going on walks to explore. She is eager to please, easygoing, potty trained and walks well on a leash. Lacey is incredibly smart, has great manners and lots of tricks up here sleeve. We also absolutely love her heart-shaped nose, soft furr endless kisses, and sweet snuggles!  Lacey is looking for a home with no cats or pocket pets and would ideally be the only pet in her new home. We also recommend a home with older kids as she could knock over little ones with her excitement and wagging tail!

Story
Meet Miley, a permanent resident with Animalluvr's Dream Rescue! Back in February 2021, Miley was surrendered to us due to her owners moving after originally asking a veterinary clinic for euthanasia. Luckily, we had a wonderful foster home step up to take her in and avoid euthanasia at only 3 years old. At the time, Miley had no vetting and was dragging her back end for over a year per her owners....without any vet care or proper diagnosis. During her time with usm Miley has had full veterinary work ups including blood work, xrays, consults with orthopedic specialist, neurologist and rehabilitation specialist. She is getting all the care she needs but needs a special home that will love and care for her.  Miley is a young bully girl who weighs in at 50lbs of muscle. She wants to run. She wants to play. And, she definitely wants to kiss and snuggle. Miley is incontinent - she knows when she has to go but cannot hold it. Luckily she loves sporting her cute panties around and is very cooperative with it. Even with all of the dedicated care, an incontinent dog is prone to urinary tract infections so the medical care is a constant battle. We are committed to Miley for life! Animalluvr's Dream Rescue is a 501(c)3 organization that relies on donors and volunteers to continue saving lives. Miley is one of our many fospice pets that we will continue providing medical care for life. We accept donations through CashApp, PayPal, Venmo, and Zelle. If you are interested in sponsoring a fospice pet, please email us at aldr@animalluvrs.org to learn more.  ##1109177##

Story
Loretta is a 3-year-old staffy mix looking for her forever home. Her playgroup style at the shelter was described as gentle/dainty, and her foster believes she would do best with submissive dogs. She does love to play and absolutely loves to cuddle with her foster parents She does have skin issues, which is common in bully breeds. She will likely need to be on oral allergy medicine for life. She aims to please and knows tricks like "sit" and "kisses."  Due to Loretta's size, we do not recommend a home with small children. She has not been tested with cats, but her foster family believes she would do best in a home with no cats. She is crate-trained and house-trained, and her foster family is able to leave her in their guest room and she isn't destructive. All of our adoptable rescues have a clean bill of health (unless otherwise stated), are spayed/neutered, vaccinated (age-appropriately), tested (FeLV/FIV for cats, HW for dogs over 6 months of age), current on flea and heartworm prevention and microchipped.

 Arturo (formerly known as Mr Man-Man from HCPRC) is a 2yr old gent who came to the shelter looking pretty rough! He needed entropion and ear hematoma repair surgeries as well as his neuter. He got all patched up and has been recovering with his foster family for the past few months. Arturo is crate trained and housebroken perfectly! He plays well with all dogs and is a social butterfly with people. Around cats, he will need to be supervised because he forgets he's 55lbs and wants to play a little too much sometimes. Arturo LOVES his daily walks (still working on not pulling but getting better) and visits to the doggie park and doggy day care at Paws Paradise Fur Life!  Our adoption applications are on our website: WWW.ANIMALLUVRS.ORG   All of our adoptable rescues have a clean bill of health (unless otherwise stated), are spayed/neutered, vaccinated (age-appropriately), tested (FeLV/FIV for cats, HW for dogs over 6 months of age), current on flea and heartworm prevention and microchipped.

Story
I was given Nacho when he was a puppy, around 8 weeks old. He just turned 1 on April 3rd. He;s very affectionate and has a lot energy so he loves to play. He;s very shy when he;s not in the comfort of home. He;s been on heartworm prevention but needs to get new ones soon, He;s up to date on all his vaccines. The last time we went to the vet he was around 67lbs. He is a mix between pitbull terrier and staffordshire. He is house trained. The reason for the rehoming is because he does not get along well with my senior dog and she is a little smaller than he is so she can’t handle playing with him. I would love for him to go to a home where he get all the playtime he needs.

These pups are in Tampa, Florida too!

Story
Who’s ready to have their very own Spud MacKenzie in their life? My name is Zero and I am looking to be someone’s partner in crime. My current mom is unsure of my previous life, but she absolutely adores me. We believe I am about 2 years old and I am a pure-bred bull terrier. My mom does say I am a stage 5 clinger, and hopes that my new parents will do some research on bull terriers. True to my breed I become obsessed with my person. Like obsessed. If you are in the shower, I am in the shower. You are on the toilet….. well I am on the toilet too! Sharing is caring by the way and I openly share my feelings about everything. I’m smart, but stubborn. And I am not a morning dog. I prefer to sleep in, and good luck getting me to go outside if it is raining. That’s a no. I may be small but I am built like a tank and I will just sit down and ignore you. I love to ride in the car. Mostly, I like to lay on the center counsel and watch you. I am learning my name and love to run and play. My new home cannot have cats in it. True to my breed I will take too much interest in them, and we would hate for them to get hurt. I would do best with a dog my size or bigger, anything smaller I might sit on them and forget they are under me. My favorite things on the planet are fresh warm clothes, cantaloupe and peppers. Well, honestly any food. The way to my heart is through my stomach! I sleep all night in my bed, or your bed, and I do not snore. My mom says she would love to keep me but she has cats and I stress over them a bit too much. Is there anyone out there who would love someone so unique as me?  ##2039574##

Story
MAXX & ME PET RESCUE adoptable dogsEthan &#226&#157&#164&#239&#184&#143. The first thing that drew us to Ethan was the dramatic and horrific injury he sustained from a deeply embedded collar. We knew he needed help. The recovery he has made on that front in such a short time is truly remarkable! (Before pics, update pics, and current pics included in this post!) Like most dogs who suffer tragic injuries, though, Ethan is soooooo much more than that part of his story. The moment you meet him, his charisma bowls you over. His bright, sparkling eyes and goofy smile are as endearing as can be. Throw in the underbite that causes his jowls to hang on his teeth and… well… goooood luck not having to grab him and smooch his face! It’s impossible not to! Ethan will be neutered soon and on the hunt for his forever family. We are currently processing applications for him! (If in the Tampa area, we can do a foster to adopt and allow him to join your family right away!) He will need a fenced yard to run and cut up in. He would prefer a friendly dog or pack to join so he can wrestle and run and play with them but we will also consider an active family committed to exercise and socialization who doesn’t have a dog already. Ethan loves children and people of all shapes and sizes. People = pets, treats, all the “good boys”, so he’s a big fan! In addition to them going to heaven, he believes all dogs were put on earth to play and rough house so a home with crotchety older guys won’t work. Ethan needs younger dogs who want to be a mentor and demonstrate good behaviors he can emulate but who can keep up with him as he attempts to break the speed record for yard courses and zoomies. He also has some boxer in him maybe so he’s handsy and bumps with his chest when he plays. We cannot say enough about this guy! He’s delightful and will bring the fun and the love to any home he joins! Apps for our resilient dude @maxxandme.org Ethan’s adoption fee is $350May 18, 2024, 3:05 pm
