Welcome Poppy to VIP RESCUE!

Poppy found himself at our local shelter not once, but twice. A case of being unwanted and neglected after his primary person went into rehab and he went to be with a family member that kept him on their porch. He escaped the porch, wound up in the shelter…..and they gave the family 17 days to collect him, multiple phone calls, and numerous promises they would come and retrieve Poppy……but no one showed for poor Poppy. So today Poppy, your life is about to change. You are wanted, and VIP will find you a home where you do not live on the porch, you are fed and watered regularly, you get groomed frequently, and you are loved. Poppy is a spry active boy, he is thought to be a poodle blend, about 11 pounds, he is blind but that does not slow him down, he is partially deaf but hears what is important, and appears to be in excellent health. He loves to go for walks, he is house trained, and wants nothing more than to explore his surroundings then sit on your lap. He is a talker, and has plenty to say when you talk to him. He moves around the yard and home freely despite his vision challenges. He has a heart of gold and is easily pleased. Poppy is recently neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and heartworm negative. So, let me ask you, will you show up for Poppy? He is still waiting……

Please complete an adoption application at VIP RESCUE to learn more about Poppy. He is fostered in Leesburg, FL.

Mork and Mindy




Two darling Poodles, Mother and Son. They were left behind and a property manager found them and brought them to VIP Rescue.

Momma Mindy is about 8 years old and 12 pounds – a little chunky. She is a sweet girl and would love to share your lap. She is house trained, crate trained, and a real friendly loving gentle girl.

Her Son, Mork, is about 5 years old, and 8 pounds. He is a busy boy, loves his mom, is house trained and crate trained. He is a sweet little boy.

We would like to find a home for these two cuties to get adopted together……they have been thru a lot together. Lets keep them together.

Both dogs are spayed/neutered, heartworm negative, have had their vaccinations, are microchipped and have had their teeth cleaned.

These two are such well behaved and pleasant dogs, so easily pleased.



MIKEY / Brevard County / Standard Poodle / Courtest Post

fullsizeoutput_5507 fullsizeoutput_5506



Mikey is a handsome bouncy lean active white 6 yr old Standard Poodle who is available for adoption from his owner in Brevard County, FL.  Due to circumstances beyond the owners control, Mikey is being rehomed.  Mikey weighs 43lbs.   He loves long walks, loves to play ball, he even rolls it back to you with his nose! Mikey gives kisses, is obedience trained, walks great on a lead, and he loves to go go go.  Mikey is a Velcro dog, and just wants to be wherever you are or wherever you go.  He learns quickly, aims to please, has earned his Canine Good Citizen certification, and has been trained in Rally!

Mikey will only be adopted to an active home with no other dogs, as he is dog selective in sharing his home with other animals.  He prefers not to be left at home alone, so he is looking to find someone who works from home, part-time, a retired situation, or where he can go to work with you?  We do not recommend a home with children.  Mikey has a ton of energy, and he never runs out. To keep up with this active boy and give him the exercise that he needs, you will need a minimum of a 5 foot fenced yard with lots of room and time to play ball with him.  Mikey is a very loving, totally devoted, and attentive boy.

Mikey has great manners, he does not counter surf, he is house trained, crate trained, and aims to please.  When meeting new people, Mikey likes to do it on his terms……a slow “let him come to you” approach.  Mikey learns quickly with very gentle positive training and handling – he is fearful of people who are overzealous and engage in rough play upon approach.  In a matter of an hour, Mikey can be your best friend if you play ball with him and he will be begging for your affection.  Mikey would do great in a home that is familiar with rally, agility, and other mentally and physically stimulating activities.

Mikey is not a service dog candidate or therapy dog candidate due to his dog to dog volatility and approach volatility.

Mikey is neutered, current on his vaccinations, current on his preventatives, heartworm negative, microchipped and has a Florida Health Certificate.  Mikey’s adoption fee is $250.  Mikey requires frequent grooming and this should be a consideration when adopting Mikey.  Mikey is in excellent health.

This is a courtesy post for Mikey’s owner.  If you are interested in Mikey, have no other dogs, have a minimum of a 5 foot fenced yard, and have lots of time for Mikey, please complete an adoption application at VIP RESCUE and your application will be forwarded to Mikey’s owner for consideration. A home visit will be required as part of the adoption process to be approved.  Adoption application:  http://viprescue.org/jobs/apply/?j=772

If you have questions about Mikey, please submit an adoption application with your questions.  Florida Residents Only will be considered for adoption.

VIP RESCUE is not responsible or liable for the care or adoption of this animal.  This is a courtesy post only for his owner in Brevard County, FL.

Adoption Event



















Casper is a very loving Doodle we think, or quite possibly a Standard Poodle.  He weighs about 60 lbs.  Casper is fostered in Leesburg, FL.  Casper was taken to the shelter and dropped off by a family along with their other dogs to be euthanized.  We have little to no information about his past.  We are guessing him to be an adult.  Casper is bouncy and has endless energy to play!  Since coming to VIP Rescue, Casper has been enjoying life at his new foster home and his tail has not stopped wagging!  He gets along well with other dogs he has met and those he is living with.  He has lots of energy to burn, and he likes to play – jump – and bounce around.  He needs a good sized fenced yard to romp and run, and a home with lots of energy to entertain him outside playing ball, fetching,  running, and leash walking.  He requires quality nutrition – he is being fed raw presently and is thriving.   Casper requires frequent grooming.  He is very sweet, very affectionate, he loves people, he is a velcro dog, and is gentle taking treats.  He knows commands and obeys most of the time.  He is too energetic to live with small children as he might knock them down when stimulated. Casper  walks well on a leash and thoroughly enjoys his walks.  Casper is a counter surfer, however stops when corrected.  He is looking for an active  home where he is not left for 8-10 hours a day.  Preferably Casper would do best with a work from home family or a retiree that is home most of the time.  Casper is crated after he eats to ensure he has ample time to digest his food before playing.  Casper is crated for sleep, and crated when his foster family is not home.  Casper came in with a foot injury and terrible ear infections.  We have made great strides at these healing in his foster home.  Casper is neutered, vaccinated, heart worm negative, and current on his preventatives.  Casper does have a cataract, however, he is able to see well to catch and retrieve balls with no problem.

This boy will be a delight for those who enjoy hiking, running, walking, and playing with their dog.   He wants nothing more than to spend his time with humans……and is full of happy bouncing joy!  He has a big heart, he is a lover, and he loves to put his head in your lap and cuddle with you.  A large fenced yard is a must for this boy.  Help us find Casper to find a home that needs to be filled with a bundle of bouncing joy that needs some love from Casper!

Caspers adoption donation is $250.  If you are interested in Casper, you must complete an adoption application.  Once submitted our volunteers will contact you to determine if Casper might be a match for you.  You must be able to travel to Leesburg to meet Casper.

Teddy and Charley

IMG_0611       IMG_0613





Charlie and Teddy are Australian Labradoodle brothers. They have been together for their entire life and we do not intend to separate them. They are the size of a mini-doodle at 40 lbs each. They are very intelligent, easily trained, and low to non-shedding. They are very happy boys that just want a best buddy to sit by on the sofa, take a ride in the car, chase squirrels, play ball, and to follow you around like velcro. They have mastered basic obedience. They are athletic when out and about and settle well when in the home. They thrive on companionship, but do not always demand attention. They love intellectual stimulation, riding on golf carts, love the water, going out to eat, and playing with toys. They know sit, down, stay, etc. They are house trained, do not need to be crated, but one must be wise to counter surfing! They are in good health, are vaccinated, heart worm negative, microchipped, teeth cleaned, and house trained. They require a fenced in yard large enough to exercise and play ball at their new home. They require frequent brushing, and grooming. They hope to find a home where someone has a lot of time to spend with them and lots of treats! They are very loving and affectionate. They are beautiful happy boys that would be a great addition to your home. They do best in homes with no dogs or calm dogs….no cats. They are 8 years old, and the average lifespan is 13-15. Charley and Teddy are fostered in Leesburg, FL. If you are interested in Charley and Teddy you will need to travel to Leesburg, FL to meet them. Please complete an adoption application at www.viprescue.org if you would like to know more about Teddy and Charley! A home visit will be required before adoption.

 Their combined adoption donation is $600.

Wheat is a darling Terrier Mix weighing about 12 lbs. thought to be about a year old. He is timid, but loves nothing more than cuddling and sitting on your lap. It takes time and coaxing, but he will give kisses. He came to VIP from a home with too many dogs so he has not had a lot of socialization. However, he is making significant progress at his foster home every day! He is thought to be a Yorkshire Terrier mix – if you look at his family members. He does not appear to shed. Wheat has all his vaccinations, preventatives, is heart worm negative, dewormed, will be microchipped and neutered before he is adopted. He is not accustomed to a leash and we are working on that as well as his potty training.  He is a darling pup and a gentle loving boy. Wheat is very attracted to children and loves them.   Other dogs would be a plus for him to learn from them provided they are mannerly.  He loves to be carried.  His adoption donation is $350.

OSCAR is a handsome male Labradoodle born in 2009.  He weighs 68 pounds, and is a healthy happy active boy.  Oscar’s family is no longer able to accommodate his size and have asked us to find him a new loving home.  Oscar is very active, and loves to run, play, and cuddle.   Oscar needs a family with a fenced yard to romp with and hopefully another like size dog to play with him.  He gets along with most dogs we have introduced him to.  His favorite pastime is chasing little lizards.  He loves water.  He can busy himself for long periods in pursuit.  He loves to sit next to you on the sofa, and he loves to sit on your feet!  He loves affection.  He has been thru basic training and knows his commands and with an experienced handler he is compliant.  However, he needs continual reinforcement.  He has not been crated in his current home and has not been destructive inside the home.

Oscar is current on his vaccinations, current on preventatives, heart worm negative, neutered and his teeth are scheduled to be cleaned.  Due to his condition coming to rescue we had to shave him down however we have provided photos of what he will look like when his hair is grown out.  He is a big fluffy curly non-shedding guy!  He eats Fromm Gold dog food.    We are able to adopt to Florida Residents only.  Oscar requires frequent brushing and monthly grooming.  His coat is very curly like that of a Standard Poodle.  His adoption donation is $250.

Charlie Brown is looking for a new home!  He is a black 4 year old F1B Labradoodle weighing in at 65 lbs.  He is microchipped, current on all vaccinations, heartworm negative, neutered, and housetrained when left for a reasonable time.  He is dog friendly, he shows no interest in other dogs.  He has a one track mind…..and that is the ball and flying in the air catching it.  He is so much fun!  He also likes water, and we are working on him swimming; he can swim just not with confidence!  He gives kisses, hugs, and is tolerant of grooming.  His energy level is off the charts so we do not recommend small children because he does not know boundaries.  When excited, he can pull on a lead with great force and can take an adult down, so he needs some obedience work.  Once his excitement comes down, he will walk on lead fine.

He knows sit, down, and some basic commands.  He rides in a car, but will bounce around while moving if allowed.  He gets so excited he cannot contain it.  He is a counter surfer and nothing is safe at any level……which is typical of the breed.  He appears in good health, a little thin but we are working on that and his ears are healing.  He has some spots that are healing due to neglect and a grooming accident that happened before he came to us.

Charlie Brown needs a large fenced yard to burn his energy playing ball 3-4-5 times a day. Ideally he would have a stay at home mom or dad and spend little time home alone.  He accepts being crated, but not for long periods.  He can be a handful due to his energy, so an experienced large puppy/dog owner is preferred.   He is extremely smart, learns quickly, and is a lot of fun.  We recommend whomever adopts him that they enroll him in basic obedience.  This will form a greater bond and create a more manageable dog when he has his crazies!

You can’t help but just love him to pieces; he is irresistable.  He requires frequent grooming and that should be factored into your decision.  Because he is part Labrador Retreiver, he is not hypoallergenic.  However, he does not appear to shed.  He requires monthly heartworm and flea/tick preventatives.  He eats like a horse!

If you would like to know more about Charlie Brown, please submit an adoption application.  One of our volunteers will call you and discuss your application and answer questions about Charlie Brown and our adoption process.

Charlie Brown’s adoption donation is $450.  $100 will be refunded at which time obedience training is completed and proof is provided to VIP Rescue.  Charlie Brown is located in Leesburg, FL.  We do not allow out of state adoptions.

Thank you for thinking rescue!

Meet Mitzi! Mitzi is a 3 yr old small cream colored Standard Poodle. She weighs 38 pounds and is a kind gentle bundle of love. She loves people and does not know a stranger. She is kid friendly. She is very playful, and can be a great snuggler also. She loves to sleep with her people. You can take her anywhere and she behaves well. She can be wild and crazy, or she can be calm…..it just depends on what you are doing with her. She has the signs of being an excellent Therapy Dog with some further structured training. She is house trained and is not real fond of crating, and so long as she has toys to occupy her, she is not destructive and does not need to be crated. However, you will need to guard your trash cans! Mitzi is dog friendly, if you can get past her initial snarling – by day 2 she is best friends with other furry creatures large and small. She loves to ride in the car and you can take her wherever you go. She is a very social animal and loves outings with her person. She walks well on a leash.

Mitzi was recently spayed, teeth cleaned, microchipped, is heart worm negative and current on vaccinations. We noticed she favored her one rear leg, and let out an occasional yelp. ;X-rays found there is narrowing of vertebrae with disc protrusion, however there is no nerve deficit which is great news and her hips are good! She was prescribed Vetprofen and low impact exercise. There has been no further issues since she has been on this medication. Her former owner relinquished her to rescue as they are moving and could not longer care for her.

Mitzi’s new home will have a fenced yard for her to run and play. Her new home will also allow her on their furniture and in their bed. Mitzi requires frequent grooming. She is on special food for her allergies and this food needs to be continued at her new home. Her prescription of Vetprofen will also need to be continued on a daily basis. Her adoption donation is $350. A home visit is a prerequisite to her adoption. Mitzi is fostered in Leesburg, FLORIDA and you will need to travel to Leesburg, FL to meet her. We are unable to adopt out of state.

WYATT / Eustis, FL






Wyatt has a meet greet scheduled for this Saturday with a potential adopter. 

Wyatt is a 5 year old Giant Schnauzer / Standard Poodle blend sometimes referred to as a GIANT SCHNOODLE.  He has a lovely non-shedding black/silver curly thick coat.  He weighs in at 83 lbs, and is a big happy healthy boy!  Wyatt comes to VIP Rescue from his owner who did not have the time to devote the attention he needs but suffered no abuse or neglect.  He attracts a crowd wherever he goes, and people are in awe when they see him.   He is a well trained boy, sits, lies down, walks well on a leash, and comes when called.  Wyatt needs lots of attention; he puts his head in your lap for affection.  If you do not respond, the paw comes up on your lap, then the other paw, and pretty soon he will be in your lap before you know it!  I would classify him as a very needy boy…..in that he likes attention 24×7.  He follows you everywhere you go.  He is in good health, but we are working at rectifying an ear infection at this time.

He is housetrained and crate trained.  As a puppy, he had a broken hip, and surgery corrected the problem.  He shows no signs of issues from this injury as he was properly cared for at the time of injury.  You can take Wyatt anywhere with you; he enjoys riding in the car and going shopping or out to eat and on walks.  He does not counter surf, nor does he get into the garbage or get on furniture which is typical of this breed.  However, he loves his special toys, and loves to chew bones with marrow.  He does not share his toys or bones……and you will get a growl when attempting to remove them.  We are working on that.  He has a delightful personality, a big lover of his people, and is a good watch dog to alert.

He would make a great Therapy Dog with some additional training.  Wyatt needs a fenced yard in his new home to properly exercise to fetch and retrieve.  We recommend a home with no children or larger older dog savvy children due to his size as he does not really understand how large he is and when he paws for attention, or steps on your feet, it is too much for a child.  He would do well in a home with no other dogs or one other dog.  He gets along with all the dogs he has met; however he is not interested and does not engage with other dogs yet.  Because he likes so much human attention, we recommend him in a home where he is the prime focus of your affection.  Wyatt is not compatible with cats.  He is not fond of storms or fireworks.  Wyatt requires frequent grooming.

If you are looking for a Gentle Giant, and a boy that is very needy of your affection, Wyatt is your boy!  If you would like to meet Wyatt, please complete an adoption application to VIP RESCUE for consideration.   www.viprescue.org.    You will need to travel to Eustis Florida 32736 to meet Wyatt.  Thank you for thinking rescue!    The adoption donation for Wyatt is $350 and a home visit will be a prerequisite.  Florida residents will be considered.
