Let me introduce myself; my name is Wilbur.  Some of my close friends and foster family also know me as Willy.  My day is filled with a couple of short walks, a few laps in the pool and being bossed around by my older foster sister, Candy Cane. I am 10 years young and around 16 pounds.

My daily household chore is cleaning the kitchen floor; which I do better than anyone else in the house!  If I am ever distracted and you need my attention, just open the refrigerator door and I am sure to come quickly.
I enjoy the company of other dogs, but prefer to be an only child like I was with my original mommy.  Don’t get me wrong,  I enjoy my older foster sister, but she can be bossy at times which I find annoying,
My favorite part of the day is the evening when I can sit with my foster family and watch TV.  So, if you are a human family that likes a few short walks a day and wants someone to clean your kitchen floor everyday as well as enjoys a couple hours relaxing in the evening, please inquire about me, Wilbur.

He is current on his shots , micro chipped, neutered , had a dental and on heartworm prevention . He is really in great health and has so much to offer a new adoring family !

Pizzazz/ Largo

Hey guys, yep I’m a real cutie and I LOVE, LOVE being right next to my human. I warm up to other dogs after a bit,  but I would like to be your one and only.  I’m a Maltese, which means I think the world revolves around me, so I need a human that understands how to make boundaries.
I’m smart so I learn quickly, which means I learn good behavior or bad behavior very quickly.  I have a few little quirks that my foster Mom is working with me on, but for the most part I will be your best friend.
  I love riding in car and being with you at all times.  I get a B in house training, I wasn’t neutered until VIP saved me so it really wasn’t my fault, but I am doing really good now.
I’m up to date on all my shots, micro chipped, I’m approximately 5 years young and neutered and on heartworm prevention.  I’m a quick learner and I really do want to make you happy.
I’m approximately 10 lbs and very portable.
  I’m really a sweet, loving, happy little guy and I really hope to get my furever family soon! Please go to www.viprescue.org and fill out an application. Thanks to the Barker Shop for the fresh groom !

VIP Candy Cane 9.10.18 Candy Cane 9.10.18 2

Trick or Treat!  My name is Candy Cane and I am a witch for Halloween.  My foster mom says I am a good witch.  She also tells me that I am a pretty poodle, but I don’t really know that since I am blind in my only eye.  I do like walks so Trick or Treating is right up my alley.  I walk well on a leash and follow the curb so walking is very easy for me.  The walks keep me fit at 14 lbs. I don’t
act my age 13.  I am hoping it will be my lucky number if you fill out an application to make me part of your home.

Hey Candy Cane is the name, snuggling is the game. I love, love, love my human. I came to VIP Rescue, as owner surrender,  blind and 13 years old. VIP had one of my nasty painful eyes removed, and I feel like a champ.  I get really excited when I hear my foster Mom’s voice when she gets home. I love being next to you! I am a senior of 13 years, but in poodle years that’s nothing.  I’m up to date on my shots, micro chipped, spayed, had my dental and bonus HOUSEBROKEN. You just have to guide me to the door, and take me out a couple of times a day.  I prance in the yard like the stunningly beautiful perfect poodle that I am. My only flaw, honestly, is that I’m blind.  But please don’t let that stop you from considering me as an addition to your family. I will show you everyday how big my heart is and how much I am capable of.  I’m an over comer! Please apply at www.viprescue.org if you are interested in making me part of your family.  I’ll be waiting for my angel.

Opal/Citrus Park

New about Opal ,
 Hi there, my name is Opal! When I first came to VIP I was a hot mess. Now I’m just hot! I got a makeover and I feel so soft and happy to be cleaned up. I love to sit in laps, snuggle you and yes, I’m a kisser. I sleep over night in bed with my foster dad and sleep through the night. I appear to be potty trained as long as you take me out every so often. I walk well (and run too) on a leash. Having just 3 legs does not slow me down at all. In fact, if you didn’t see I only had 3 legs you’d never know. I love to play with my foster sisters and chew toys. I think I’d love to have some kids to play with as long as they’re a little older. No cats or ducks since I love to chase them.
Opal is thought to be a 2 year old 10 lb poodle mix.
That is the simple start of her story .. Found as a damaged and matted mess. Her back right leg just hanging there. Most likely , hit by a car and left for dead . BUT , she wasn’t done yet . With the injury not attended to immediately , there was no saving it .
For those who are dedicated to rescue and routinely see and feel the horrors , story’s like Opal’s inspire use to keep going. BECAUSE  , we witness their desire to just keep going . They don’t let anything slow them down . THAT IS OPAL !
Opal is truly a gem. She is fun , spirited, playful, energetic, sassy , sweet , smart , joyful , magical and ready to move on even if it is only with 3 legs . She arrears to be housetrained, is good on a leash . She likes other dogs , and is a affection junkie. Opal is current on her shots, micro chipped, spayed, and on heartworm prevention.
 We would be most grateful for any financial assistance you can share to cover her vet bill. You can donate on our website, our Facebook page or call the vet directly too.
Opal is looking forward to reviewing your application !
