Howard was found as a stray and was never claimed.  He is thought to be about 3 years old and weighs under 10 pounds.  He has a beautiful coat and does not seem to shed!

Lady/Leesburg Adoption Pending

Meet Lady, a sweet and kind-hearted Labradoodle at VIP Rescue.  Lady is a delight, she loves all people, all dogs, and a sweetheart to have around.  She is on the hunt for a new home with a willing heart that spoils seniors.  Lady is an easy addition to a loving home that can let her out frequently to do her business, and one that will shower her with love and attention when she is not napping.  She loves being outside and trotting along at her pace.  Lady is a kind and gentle soul that is certain to wiggle her way into your heart and home.   She eats eagerly, and loves to spend time with you cooking and eating in the kitchen.  Lady actively seeks your attention and she aims to please.  She is smart girl, she is housetrained, however, when she moves to a new home, it may take special attention in the first few weeks to get her familiar with the area and routine when / where you want her to go.  She loves being brushed and was good for the groomer.  She does not appear to shed.  Lady gets along well with other dogs, she enjoys her people and their visitors, and is a social girl.  At her age, she takes a lot of naps, so you will have lots of snuggle time with Lady.  Car rides and walks make her happy!   

Lady’s owner passed away, and Lady found herself abandoned at 14 years old.  She has adjusted well in her foster home, she has had a wellness visit at the vet, and is in great condition for a 14-year-old at about 50 lbs.  Lady is current on her vaccinations, preventatives, heartworm negative, and microchipped.  Her recent bloodwork looks great.  As with any 14-year-old, she does have some diminished sight / hearing, a few lumps and bumps, needs assistance getting in and out of vehicles, and has some hip / rear leg arthritis.  But, Lady certainly can navigate to wherever she wants to go and play with other dogs, cuddle, go on car rides, and take walks with you.  

Lady is fostered in Leesburg, Florida.  A home visit is a pre-requisite to be approved for adoption.  A fenced yard with grass to trot is recommended for Lady and she also walks well on a leash.  Grooming is required every 4-8 weeks.

To adopt Lady, you must complete an adoption application.  If your application is approved for Lady, a VIP Rescue Volunteer will do a home visit at your residence prior to adoption.   To meet and to adopt Lady, you will need to travel to Leesburg, FL.  We adopt to Florida residents only. 


Please fill out an adoption application today if you would like more information about our special Senior Girl “Lady.”   www.viprescue.org

Oooohhhhh, ahhhhhhh.. That’s what people say when they see me! Hi! My name is Chance! I just got here to VIP a few days ago, and I’m lovin’ Florida! I’m a very happy, healthy chubby 4 month old pup who weighs about 17lbs. Some say I look like a fuzzy Dalmatian because of all my spots! (maybe boarder collie mix) I absolutely LOVE people and am really curious about all the foster pups I’ve met since I got here. I’m learning this thing called  “potty training” not sure what that is, but foster Mom said I’m doing good!  You’ll have to promise to keep working on that with me, ok? When I’m all grown up, I’ll probably be a medium to larger doggie, but can I tell you what? I wubs this puppy food they feed me, that’s a really good thing cause’ I have to stay on it for several more months! I’m already neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and microchipped, and am on Heartworm and Flea prevention too. I’m all set, how about you? Hope to meet you very soon!

He thoroughly enjoys leash walks and since he likes being right near his “person” he’ll follow you anywhere! He’s a good boy who gets along with other doggies, but hey, he’d be fine just hanging on the couch watching Netflix with you too!

Mia is an adorable 5 year old 14lb Chihuahua. Since arriving at VIP, she has started her ” Weight Watchers” program so she can get her girlish figure back! She’ll need to stay on her current diet to shed some extra pounds. She really enjoys lounging around and is learning leash walks are a great thing! She’s a really happy girl ( cute as a button too!) who loves to sleep with her human, but will settle nicely in her own doggie bed should you prefer that. 

Both of these cuties have been fully vetted to include neuter/spay, vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped AND dentals! They are also current on Heartworm and Flea prevention. To meet these darlings, simply fill out an adoption application!

Buddy/Indian Rocks Beach

Meet Buddy, a 3 yr old, male, 13lb terrier mix.

Buddy is adorably playful and has fun energy. He loves toys, chew sticks, fetch, and gets along well with other friendly dogs. He is very good on leash, enjoys his time outside and would make a good walking partner.

Buddy is very smart and eager to please his person, which will come in handy for training. He is doing very well with housebreaking and will often let his foster know when he needs to go outside. Buddy has been sleeping in a crate at night at his foster home, and will often go lay in there for naps throughout the day on his own. 

Buddy has not been tested with cats or kids. However, his foster believes he would do well with respectful dog knowledgeable kids though with supervision. Probably not cats due to his play style. Buddy has also shown concern over medium/large dogs in his space and reacts by barking and becoming fearful. Buddy would do fine as a solo dog or as an addition to a family with an already established small’ish sized dog. 

Buddy has been neutered, microchipped, is up to date on his vaccinations, and current on monthly heartworm and flea prevention. Interested in welcoming Buddy into your home? Apply now at VIPRescue.org

Adoption Pending……Spencer/Tavares FL

Spencer is a vivacious very young 6 yr old 80 lb Standard Poodle boy.  This BIG beautiful black boy will charm your socks off and have you wrapped around his heart in no time.  He does not know a stranger.. He loves his people, he has loads of energy, and is a very busy boy. Spencer knows his commands. He will sit, come, stay, drop it, and play ball til the cows come home.  He is house trained, prefers not to be crated, and has one speed: full throttle!   Spencer is all smiles, and a well adjusted boy that you can’t help but fall in love with him. He is super smart, he has been through extensive training.  He can be vocal and lets you know what he wants and when he wants it.  He walks well on a leash…..until there are other dogs and then he can lose focus.   He will literally melt your heart and is very smart as a whip.  He prefers not to share resources like balls and toys and food.  We are working on that, however, since he has always been an only dog, sharing is not his strong point.  His new owner will need to like to play ball and games, frequently take him on walks/runs, and provide daily mental stimulation. Spencer will literally play 24/7 with you or another dog.  Spencer does not come with an OFF Button.  It is important you have the time and strength to channel 80 lbs of energy.   Occasionally, he will decide to hump another dog, or small child if allowed, and you need to be able to control this behavior.  Spencer has a big personality, and he lights up the room when he walks in.  He captures everyone’s attention!  Spencer is gentle with people and has good manners taking treats.
Spencer needs a minimum of a 6 foot fence with plenty of room to play ball, chase and do zoomies.  (NO EXCEPTIONS PLEASE)  We recommend Spencer’s s new owner continue his training as he is eager to learn with positive reinforcement.  Spencer is not a service dog candidate or therapy dog candidate.   Prior attempts have failed.  He does not chase squirrels or have a prey drive.  He just likes to chase, play, and wrangle with other dogs and you.  Spencer would like to sleep in your bed with you so move over and please make room!  We recommend no children under 10 reside in his new home due to his size and simply the ability to handle  a fast 85 lb dog. His new owner should have experience with larger dogs.  Spencer can be an only dog in his new home as he has been his entire life and that would likely work best.  However,  he can live in a home with another dog of like size and non-stop high energy that is not annoyed or intimidated by his desire to play 24×7.  Small dogs, cats, and farm animals would not work with Spencer.  
Spencer requires frequent brushing and monthly grooming.  He is house trained, and looking for a home where his family is home most of the time. He will not do well in a home that crates 4-6-8-10 hours a day.  He has been accustomed to someone being home 24×7 with him all his life.  Preference will be given to those with Standard Poodle experience or large dog experience because he can be a handful.  Spencer is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, heartworm negative, and microchipped. He appears to be in perfect health and has had excellent care all of his life. Spencer’s owner is deceased, and his elderly wife is simply not able to provide Spencer with the active life he needs.
We adopt to Florida residents only. A home visit is a pre-requisite to be approved for adoption.  .
To adopt Spencer, you must complete an adoption application at www.viprescue.org.  If your application is approved for Spencer, a VIP Rescue Volunteer will do a home visit at your residence prior to adoption.  Spencer is being fostered in Tavares, Florida.  To meet and to adopt Spencer, you will need to travel to Tavares, FL.  
Please fill out an adoption application today if you meet the above listed criteria and are looking for the love of your life!  www.viprescue.org
Spencer’s adoption donation is $350.

Pebbles/Redington Beach

We’d like to introduce you to Miss Pebbles, an adorably sweet 3 year old 9lb chihuahua mix girl. Pebbles is a good girl who enjoys the company of other dogs as well as hanging out with her human. Pebbles came to us heartworm positive due to her previous  family not keeping her on the monthly preventative. With that being said, VIP Rescue takes care of all the costs associated with her treatment and her new family must live in Pinellas, W Pasco or NW Hillsborough County due to time sensitive treatment at our Vet in Palm Harbor. Pebbles would need to take it slow and easy while undergoing her treatment, and all of this will be discussed with the potential adopter. She is housebroken, spayed, current on her vaccines and microchipped. She really enjoys quiet time lounging in the sun in the yard with her favorite people. Sound like the gal for you? She sure hopes so! 🐾

Hershey/Seminole

Hershey/Seminole Hershey was born on Thanksgiving in 2019 and we are thankful to have this flash of comical energy in our home.  He is a 20 pound Carin/Yorkie mix with boundless energy.  He is all boy.  If he was a humanlike cartoon character, Calvin of “Calvin and Hobbs” would come to mind.  Hershey is house and leash trained.   He spends his day running and bouncing through the yard, chewing on toys and bones and playing with his foster siblings.  He loves attention and will partake in antics to get it.  He plays well with the other dogs in our home and we noticed that he is possessive of his food bowl; so we recommend he be an only dog with no small children in the home.  We do recommend a fenced yard since he will need extensive daily exercise.  He is up to date with vaccines, microchipped, on month heartworm/flea prevention and neutered.  To welcome him into your family you must submit an application.
