Thank you all for considering rescue.  Please be patient.

Like every business, we are impacted by the corona virus on many fronts.

Many groomers are closed, limited veterinarian visits, and we have sick volunteers.

This delays us is in preparing animals for adoption and we also have to follow county and state guidelines

in distancing.  Please do your part!   If there is a dog listed on our website for adoption you are interested in,

submit an adoption application.  We are not volunteer staffed to respond to hundreds of emails with questions.

If you submit your application, our volunteers will process your applications when the dog is ready for adoption.

Thank you for your patience during this challenging time.  May you all stay healthy!

Thank you for thinking rescue.

Bo Peep/Largo

 

Bo Peep is thought to be a Springer Spaniel/Austrailian Cattle dog mix.  She’s 2 years old and a fit 23 lbs.

So far, this adorable girl is Full of smiles and kisses!!  She is smart and eager to please.

She thrives on attention! !

BP sMILE

She has done excellent on housebreaking. And does well on a leash.

She is Full of energy and would do well in an active home.   I’ve heard they are great running partners!

She has some issues when she first meets other dogs, but has the ability to get along with them, but because of this would do best as the only dog in the home.  

She is mildly interested in the cat. And seems to do well with people.

She came to us after just being treated for heartworm.  Because of this, she’ll need  low-key activity for a few months.  She needs to be re-tested for heartworm in a month.

She is spayed, micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccines and meds.

BELLA

ADOPT BELLA
Bella is a female 2 year old love bug that weighs in at a petite 11 1/2 lbs! Her favorites things are cuddling on the couch and sitting on the porch smelling the fresh air and taking in all the sights and sounds of nature. She’s a hearty little eater, although she likes to be spoiled a little and get a few appetizers gently out of your hand before she gets into her meal. Bella is a calm, chill dog, with a precious demeanor. She gets along well with the other small dogs in the home, including appropriately interacting w/ the house puppy and being respectful w/ the seniors. Bella is crate trained, appears to be mostly house broken, has shown interest and success using potty papers, and walks very well on a leash.
I can’t seem to find that meet & greet social distancing language we talked about though. :)
Bella is spayed, heartworm negative, current on vaccinations, microchipped, and current on preventatives.

TIMBER, LEESBURG, FL / ADOPTION PENDING

 

0A85FE90-11F4-44BB-BC74-1967D4B595D9_1_201_a3C78E488-7243-4224-B1A5-4C686E5B3659_1_201_a

 

ADOPT TIMBER

Timber is a looking for a new loving family to spend the rest of his life with.  He is a handsome 11-month old male brown (silver-beige) Standard Poodle puppy. He weighs about 40lbs and has a surprisingly calm demeanor for a puppy his age.  He is still full of entertaining puppy antics, he has a sweet and loving personality, and is becoming more outgoing and social every day. Timber loves a good romp with his foster brothers, also standard poodles, and happily plays tug of war with them. Timber walks nicely on a leash.  He is learning his commands and responds well to treats! Timber acknowledges commands, but he is not accustomed to loud or harsh tones nor does he need that.  He likes toys and is not destructive with them, although he’s been known to nibble on a chair leg and my credit card if he finds it!  He is a Velcro dog and just wants to be wherever you are. He currently sleeps in a crate.  He likes to be in the same room as you and does not like to be left alone.  He can be quite verbal about that.  He loves to cuddle in the bed with you and readily gives hugs.  Timber rides well in the car and is a good travel companion while visiting other people and places.  Timber is good with other dogs, and does well with children supervised.  

Timber was surrendered to VIP Rescue, his former owner was struggling with some issues and could no longer care for him.  When Timber came to VIP, we noticed he was constantly thirsty, seeming to never get enough fluids.  After several veterinarian visits and a hospitalization for in depth testing, it was determined that Timber has Psychogenic Polydipsia – a very rare condition in dogs.  The best news is, his organs are all functioning normal (liver, kidney, thyroid, heart, etc.) however his brain is always telling him he is thirsty.  Little is known about the cause of this disease as there are so few cases, either in humans or dogs.  So, we manage his water intake for him, he gets 68 ounces, and we spread it throughout the day.  We can provide more information on Psychogenic Polydipsia if you are interested in learning more or you can call your veterinarian for advice.  He has seen specialists, the tests are complete, and all his records are available.  It is possible this disorder could go away, or it could remain for his lifetime – his prognosis is unknown.  He is in perfect health other than this disorder.

Timber is neutered, current on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped, and ready for an adventure in moving to his new permanent home and finding his soulmate.  A fenced yard is a requirement, as he loves to run and play and frequent potty breaks are a necessity.  Timber would do best in a home where his master is home most of the day, either working from home, retired, etc.  Another dog would be wonderful for him to have a playmate, but it might be too challenging for some to monitor his fluid intake if there are other water bowls where he could potentially drink from and swimming pools that are readily accessible to him.  It is important he stay on his 68 ounce per day regimen as he is not able to self-regulate at this time.

We adopt to Florida residents.  If you would like to meet Timber, you will need to be able to travel to Leesburg, FL 34788.  He is a great deserving boy of a wonderful loving home!  As with all puppies, additional training is recommended.  He requires frequent brushing and regular grooming.

Timber’s adoption donation is $300.

WALLY

IMG_1638

IMG_1644 

 

 

ADOPT WALLY!

Leesburg, FL 

Welcome to Wally’s World!  Wally is thought to be a Standard Poodle. He is 44 lbs., 15 months old, and a handsome cream boy with brown eyes that will melt your heart.   He loves his people, has loads of energy, and needs a decent sized 6-foot fenced yard to run and play at his new home.  (NO EXCEPTIONS PLEASE). 

Wally loves everyone, loves affection, and wants you to be the center of Wally’s World.   His antics are quite entertaining.  As far as other dogs, he will run and play with them – he does not have a mean bone in his body.  However, not all dogs like his continuous play mode.  He is super smart, and energetic – and he can be stubborn too!  He does not like being left alone, he can be vocal, and he can whine.  A very multi-talented boy!  But he does settle……when properly exercised.  

Wally was surrendered to VIP Rescue after his owner attempted to rehome him several times unsuccessfully due to his high energy.  He had been through minimal training from his first owner, and now we have worked with him in rescue and we have seen great improvement.  As with any puppy, he needs ongoing training to define boundaries, structure, routine, and stability in his new home to flourish.  Wally needs a handler that is not a pushover and understands the commitment and patience it takes to train a high energy puppy.  He gives lots of hugs and kisses – but – he will also jump on you, and dance circles around you!  However, this is all improving with love, stability, and training. These behaviors are very typical for a Standard Poodle Pup his age.

He has shown little interest yet in balls or toys but is very treat driven.  He does well on leashed walks, and does not appear to have a prey drive like most Standards.  Wally loves riding in the car and going places with you.

Wally is not a service dog candidate or an emotional support dog candidate.   Wally requires frequent brushing, and monthly grooming. He is a little wild on the groom table and will need an experienced groomer. 

Wally is recently neutered, and up to date on his vaccinations, heartworm negative, and microchipped. He appears to be in perfect health.  He is looking for a home where you are home most of the days/evenings.   He will not do well in a home that works and crates -6-8-10 hours a day – he would prefer to be with you 24×7 and free.  Preference will be given to those with Standard Poodle experience having successfully raised a puppy and are an active home – no couch potatoes.  At this time, Wally is crated when he eats, and when he is left home alone.  He has not been destructive to the home but you do need to keep your closet doors and trash out of his reach.  Older active children would be great with Wally and we recommend they go thru training with Wally.

A home visit is a pre-requisite to be approved for adoption at VIP Rescue.  

Wally’s adoption donation is $500.  $100 will be refunded to the adopter when training has been completed with a certificate of completion along with your trainers name and phone number.  We require Wally’s new owner to continue his training as he is eager to learn and for the adoption to be successful that is what it will take.  

If you would like to know more about Wally please complete an adoption application at www.viprescue.org.  Please do not submit an application if you do not have a minimum of a 6 foot fence on all sides and a sufficient grassy area for him to run.  If you are in the process of fencing your yard, please submit an application when the fencing is complete.  Thank you for thinking rescue!

ADOPT KONA!  Leesburg, Florida, 34788

Kona is a smart, sweet, active, handsome large adult Black Standard Poodle looking for a new home due to no fault of his own.  He will turn 9 in March 2020 and he hopes to celebrate his birthday in his new home with his very own Birthday Party!  Kona was stressed and anxious when he came into his foster home, but quickly warmed up, got his appetite back, and started playing with the 2 Standard Poodles there.  It was not long and he showed us his spunky happy playful side. Kona is mild mannered, he is full of love and affection; and is a true Velcro dog that is looking to be your loyal best friend. He wants nothing more than your attention and to be with you wherever you go – that includes the bathroom!  Kona is 75-80 lbs., a big boy!  When Kona came to rescue his coat was severely matted from neglect and he endured a shave down gladly.  He has a lovely thick curly coat that will grow back in due time.  Kona likes to be brushed, massaged, going for car rides, playing with other dogs, lounging in a dog bed, sitting in the recliner, stretching out on your couch, and sleeping with you if you allow.  Kona catches on to new things quickly – he is leash trained, house trained, and crate trained.   He could use a refresher course in some basic obedience training such as COME and learning to properly EXIT DOORS!  Kona is treat motivated which makes for easy training.  As with most Standard Poodles, he is a counter surfer, so anything left on the counter, table, nightstand, end tables within his reach, he will consider it is his for the taking and shame on you for letting it happen!  Generally speaking he primarily is looking for edible items, but then he might try your glasses or hearing aid, or other personal items as time allows.  He has not been destructive at all in his foster home but his foster is experienced from her own counter surfers.    Kona is social and enjoys being out and about and with you.  Kona has played well with two other Standard Poodles in his foster home, and previously lived with multiple small dogs with no issues getting along.  We are told he is not fond of cats but we have not tested that.  We will assume NO CATS for now in his future home to be safe.  Ideally, Kona would like a home where there is a retiree or work at home parent with nothing more to do than to pay dote on him all day!   So far, we have observed that when his foster mom leaves, he stays by the door waiting for her return.  He is a loyal boy.

Kona requires frequent brushing and frequent grooming.  Kona is a champ for bathing and groomers, he simply loves the attention.  He seeks your approval, and he is a needy boy.  However, if you let him know you don’t have time for him at the moment, he will give you a break. Kona will bloom in a forever home full of love and attention!

Kona is current on his vaccinations, heartworm negative, microchipped and recently had a dental.  We are not aware of any medical issues.  Kona does have some lumps and bumps that is common for the breed at his age.  Testing has been completed and deemed not necessary to remove any at this time.

REQUIREMENTS for KONA’s NEW HOME:

-Minimum 6-foot privacy fence on your property for Kona – there are no exceptions so please do not attempt to bypass this requirement, please do not apply if you do not meet this requirement because we do a home visit prior to adoption and you are wasting your time.  We have many dogs for adoption that do not require a fenced yard so please, continue your search!

-You must be a Florida resident.  We do not ship or transport dogs to adopters.

-No cats in your home or outside your home.

-To meet Kona, you will need to travel to Leesburg, FL 34788.  If you cannot do that, please look for a rescue dog closer to you.

-Kona has never lived with children, so we are recommending either no children or adult children.  He is almost 80 lbs. so leash walking with a child when a squirrel crosses paths would not be pretty.

-We do not recommend dog parks for any of our adopted dogs.  Kona is no exception.  Play dates at your home or other homes is highly recommended.

If you would like more information on KONA, or to meet Kona, please submit an adoption application and our volunteers will process your application and answer your questions.  www.viprescue.org

Kona’s adoption donation is $250.

Thank you for thinking rescue!  Following are photos of Kona before he was shaved down so you can see what he could look like when his hair has grown back.

Meet Hannah!  

FENCED YARD at RESIDENCE REQUIRED:  NO EXCEPTIONS

Hannah is approximately 2 yrs thought to be Maltese/Shih Tzu blend that will charm your pants off weighing in at 13 lbs.    She came to VIP Rescue with her 1 puppy, she was the perfect mother, and she is preparing to find her own home.

She is very much still a puppy with lots to learn.  Her  new home will have a fenced yard where she can chase squirrels, lizards, play ball, and run like the wind.  NO EXCEPTIONS.  (We have many applications for Hannah but so far no one has the fenced yard she is dreaming of!)    Inside, Hannah needs lots of toys in a basket she can empty multiple times a day and take to her bed – the bigger the better with squeaks please!  It keeps her occupied, and she will gladly play fetch with you and her toys.  She loves to perch herself on top of your sofa and chairs, so she needs to be welcome on your furniture.  She especially like to perch if there is a window she can watch everything going on.  She has not met a stranger, and she does well with like-size dogs so long as they love to play.  However, it does take a day or two for her to warm up to other dogs and engage.  She likes to ride in the car, has learned to ride in the cart at Petsmart, has ridden on the golf cart, and just wants your presence 24×7.  Yet, she is independent and can entertain herself for hours.  She is black with some brown and white markings…….she does not shed.  Her eyes will melt your heart.    She is crate trained, and before coming to rescue she was pee pad trained.  We have worked diligently on her potty training outside, and if we take her out every 2-3 hours, it is a success.  Overnite she will sleep in your bed and have no accidents – for 7-8 hours.  You will need to be disciplined  to continue her house training.  She is very smart, she knows come, sit, NO, and a short stay.  She loves treats and will do anything you ask for a reward!  She aims to please.   She rarely barks unless she needs something,    Hannah requires her new home to have a fenced yard to run and chase squirrels, birds, leaves, play ball, or chase lizards and a home where you are home most of the time.  She has learned to walk on a leash and requires a harness for walks.

Hannah will be spayed this week, and post healing she will be ready for her new home.  She has had all her vaccinations, she is heartworm negative, microchipped, and in excellent health!  We adopt to Florida residents.  Hannah needs frequent brushing and grooming, and is good for grooming except she hates the dryer.   You will need to travel to Leesburg, FL to meet Hannah.  Homes with a fenced yard will take precedence.  A home visit will be a pre-requisite.  Her adoption donation is $400.

Meet Rayne!  She is a delightful 7 month old female Mini Bernadoodle weighing about 28 lbs.  What is that?  It is a miniature poodle mixed with a Bernese Mountain Dog.  Due to life changes, she was taken to the shelter.  Her former owner invested time and training into her but with life changes, she released her to the shelter realizing Rayne was not a fit for their home.  Rayne  likes other dogs, she loves people, she has not met a stranger.  She will jump on you, and your children so small children are not recommended in her home.  She is a puppy and was purchased from a Pet Store.  She comes with some very good foundation training, she sits, she knows come, not very good on a leash, but aims to please.  She is a goofy funny entertaining girl, she wants to play with other dogs and does not always know when to stop being raised as a singleton.  She can also be calm and take naps and snuggle next to you at night.  She does not appear to shed, but that does not mean she is hypo-allergenic, and she needs frequent brushing and every 4-6 week grooming.  She counter surfs, she tears up toys, explores everything, and she is a busy puppy that needs supervision and proper toy selection.  She needs continuous reinforcement of her existing training, and additional training would be ideal for her to reach her full potential.  She is very smart, she learns quickly, and will keep you on your toes!  Her new home will have a secured fenced yard of at least 6 feet.  She will only be adopted to the state of Florida residents.  She has a sensitive digestive system, she has been food sensitivity tested and comes to you with those results.  She will make a delightful companion for someone who is home a lot and is committed to additional training.  She is accustomed to not being left for very long at her former home so if you are a home gone for 4-8 hours at a time, she is not a match.    It is recommended RAYNE be crated or placed in safe secured inside area when you leave your home and you cannot supervise her.  If you have senior dogs who do not like to engage and continuous play, Rayne is likely not the dog for you.  She has lots of energy and needs your time playing ball, running, walks, games, outings, socialization with other dogs of like size and energy, car rides, daycare is great for her with others of like size.  We do our best to match our rescue dogs to homes with the appropriate lifestyle to meet the dogs needs.  We prefer homes experienced with puppies and the Doodle breed for Rayne.

Rayne is fostered in Leesburg, Florida.  You will need to travel to Leesburg to meet her.  A home visit is a pre-requisite prior to adopting Rayne.  All animals in your home must be spayed or neutered and up to date on their vaccines.  Rayne is microchipped, spayed, current on vaccinations, heartworm negative and has had recent veterinary care.   If you would like more information on Rayne, please submit an adoption application to VIP Rescue.  Rayne’s adoption donation is $500.

ADOPT WALTER

 

Walter is scheduled to meet a family Dec. 28th to see if it is a match.

Hi Fans! My name is Walter, and all I want for the Holidays is MY OWN HOME. I hope that Santa finds me one. If you know anyone that could find it in their heart to take in a Senior Man – I promise to be a very good boy! Yes, I am a senior boy, I am great on your lap, like to be with you wherever you go, and I snooze a lot. I was found as a stray, I was a hot mess, but my Foster Home has restored my dignity and faith in mankind. I love my Foster Dad! I have adjusted to my new lifestyle quite nicely. But – I am looking for something permanent. I have some arthritis, I have had a dental, and I am current on my vaccinations, and am heartworm negative. I am microchipped and weigh about 8 pounds.  I am fine with other dogs, would likely be fine with cats too. At my age, I am not so interested in other animals or long walks. I am quite vocal when I want something, and will tell you all about it even if you don’t ask! I am quite content sitting cuddling with you, and staying at your side. If you would like to give me a new home for the New Year, please tell Santa where to take me. If you are a senior, please ask VIP Rescue to tell you about our “Seniors for Seniors” Adoption Program.

If you would like to know more about Walter, please complete an adoption application at www.viprescue.org. One of our volunteers will contact you. I can be adopted to Florida residents. I am being fostered in Leesburg Florida and you would need to travel there to meet me.

VIP RESCUE, Leesburg, FL 34788

**************************************************************************

PLEASE READ

*****************************************************************************

Ginger is a lovely active female senior Standard Poodle looking for a new home with lots of time and love to give her. She loves attention, she loves toys, she loves to eat, she is playful, she likes to be with you wherever you are, so what more could you ask for?! Ginger weighs about 45 lbs, and is still gaining and estimated to be 9-10 years old. Ginger can talk, and lets you know what pleases her and what does not. Ginger is well-mannered, and a joy to be around! She needs a family where people are home much of the time, as she likes lots of attention. She interacts well with dogs of her own stature in her foster home so other dogs likely would be fine and very good company for Ginger. However, Ginger is a people’s dog, she has not met a stranger – always curious and affectionate! Ginger walks well on a leash. Ginger is house-trained and lets you know when she needs out. We recommend her being let out every 2-3 hours during the day. She loves to sleep in your bed and curl up next to you on the sofa. Ginger is hearing impaired, she cannot hear voices. She is well behaved and it has not really presented a problem. She knows come, sit, and down commands with your hands. We do recommend a fenced yard for Ginger at her new home and frequent walks. Ginger is in good health, she is heartworm negative, current on all vaccinations and microchipped, has had a dental and is spayed. We estimate Ginger to be about 9-10 years old. Ginger came to VIP Rescue as a walking parasite. She had chewed herself to raw meat in places and no hair present on her legs. Her owner passed away, and she was passed around and wound up being very neglected. Her hair is growing back, and when her coat fills in, she will be a gorgeous cream girl.

DORA / Leesburg, FL

fullsizeoutput_72fb

Dora is a 16 year old tiny poodle weighing in at 4.5 pounds.  Her owner turned her in as a stray, so VIP to the RESCUE!  We have fattened her up, she has had a dental, and her right eye has been repaired.   She has a lot of personality and she loves her person.  She gives kisses generously!  She can be vocal, she is not shy, and she will let you know when she wants something.  She likes her short walks.  She likes sitting in your lap cuddling.  She loves to be carried around and sees little need to walk herself around if you will oblige.  She LOVES snoozing on your lap.

Dory has had all her vaccinations and is heartworm negative.

Dory would do well in a home with other senior calm dogs or no other dogs…….  She has no interest in other animals, her new owner with an empty loving open lap is her only wish.

Dory is in great shape for 16 yrs old!  We realize it takes a special person to take in a senior like Dory, but she will give you unconditional love every moment of every day she has……..and what more could one really ask for?  Dora means, the GIFT, and we hope to find the perfect place for our “GIFT.”

Dora is fostered in Leesburg, FL.  To meet DORA you will need to travel to Leesburg, FL.  No out of state adoptions.

Dora’s adoption donation is $100.

CALYPSO / Leesburg, FL

ADOPT CALYPSO

VIP RESCUE – Leesburg, Florida.
 

HI Fans! My name is Calypso, Caly for short. I am 4 years old, I weigh 50 pounds, and I am a super cute silver beige Standard Poodle. I like people, I like other dogs, but I am a little shy at first and it takes awhile for me to settle in. I will fetch my toys, I get poodle zoomies, and I can howl when I want to. I am looking for a home with another dog I can learn from, and to keep me company and play nicely. I need a fenced yard so I can run, romp, and play. I would like to sleep in your bed with you. I have learned a lot since I have been in rescue; my past was secluded and not so nice. So – I have lots to learn but am very smart and am catching on very quickly in my foster home. I will be loyal to the end, and follow you everywhere you go. I like to be in your business all the time.

I already know sit, down, and we are working on the stay. I am improving on my leash training, and house training and hope to have that mastered very soon. Due to my lack of socialization, I am unsure of new things, and new people. But my progress in in rescue is astounding and I hope to find a home that is patient with me and continues my progress. I can be the social butterfly when I get comfortable. I am looking for a home that its people are home a lot of the time. I do not like to be left much, and may howl for a brief period when my person leaves. I am looking for someone patient and calm to help me advance my socialization. I would like to goto basic obedience training to further advance my skills and understand your expectations. VIP Rescue will refund you up to $100 for the class once you provide proof of completion. I am fostered in Leesburg, FL.

I am scheduled for entropion surgery this week and hope to find my new home once that is healed first part of September. I have all my vaccines, am heartworm negative, spayed, and a very healthy girl. I require frequent brushing, and monthly grooming; so please take that into consideration. I eat Purina Pro Plan and will come with some food to get me started.

If you need a best friend for life, that is me! Calypso! I can be adopted to Florida Residents.

If you would like to meet me, please complete an adoption application at VIP RESCUE www.viprescue.org

My adoption donation is $400. Up to  $100 will be refunded when you provide certification to VIP RESCUE that I have completed basic obedience training at the trainer of your choice.

ADOPT SUKI

CAPE CORAL, FL

 

MEET SUKI!  Suki is a friendly 8 year old female brown Standard Poodle weighing 69lbs.  She is very devoted and makes a great companion as she follows your every move.  She wants to be a part of all your activities and be next to you wherever life takes you. Suki likes people and is dog friendly with like size dogs.  She does not do well living with smaller dogs.   Suki would love to be the center of your universe and will adore you! 

Suki enjoys frequent walks and has excellent leash manners.  She is housetrained and no crating is needed. However, as with many standard poodles, she will counter surf, destroy toilet paper rolls, and get in the trash if you are not at the top of your game with her.  Suki is well mannered, has mastered basic obedience, and is a very happy girl just waiting for that special person or retirees to come along to complete her life.   She would prefer not to be left at home for 4-6-8 hours at a time.     

Suki came to rescue as her owner went to hospice care.  While she was very loved, her health had been neglected. Suki is spayed, current on vaccinations, heartworm negative, microchipped, has recently had a dental, some growths removed, and a gastropexy.  To get Suki on a healthy track, she is on a diet of Primal Dog Food and has lost 12lbs with a few more to go.  She enjoys her walks several times daily and plays in the yard with her foster siblings. She requires frequent brushing and monthly grooming. Preference will be given to those with Standard Poodle experience.

Suki can offer you her unconditional love, loyalty, and affection. She is a great dog and someone is going to hit the jackpot with this amazingly well-adjusted attentive girl!  

We adopt to Florida Residents only.  You must have a securely fenced yard to adopt a Standard Poodle from VIP Rescue.  We do complete home checks as part of the adoption application process.  

Suki is located in CAPE CORAL.  You must travel to CAPE CORAL to meet SUKI.  If you would like more information on SUKI or to be considered for adoption, you must complete an adoption application.  Our volunteer will contact you once your application is complete.  We are unable to respond to your emails and messages without you first completing an adoption application.

Suki’s adoption donation is $275.

ADOPT WHITNEY

VIP RESCUE LEESBURG, FL

 

Whitney is a spry 9 yr old Standard Poodle available for adoption at VIP Rescue in Leesburg, FL.

She weighs 36 lbs and is silver beige in color.  Whitney is a very affectionate poodle seeking your attention.   She is an active girl, and she loves to run and play with puppies and dogs.  It is hard to believe she is 9 when we see her playing.  She is housetrained, does not like being crated, and there has been no need so we have not forced the issue.  She is somewhat timid, but is eager to learn from other dogs.  She is well behaved, walks well on a leash, and aims to please. She catches on quickly.  Not shy of strangers, Whitney seeks to greet everyone around her and make friends human and dog alike.  Prior to her coming to rescue she has not had a lot of socialization in places or riding in cars.  She has come a long way!

Whitney is looking for a home with a fenced yard, and hopefully other Poodles to play with.  She does not like being left by herself, but if there are other dogs when left at home she is fine for up to 4 hours.  Whitney is a sweetheart, and will win your heart in 5 minutes, and there is not turning back!

Whitney is spayed, heartworm negative, had a dental, and current on her vaccinations and preventatives. We adopt to FL Residents only.  We do home checks prior to adoption.

If you would like more information on Whitney, please submit an adoption application at www.viprescue.org  If this posting is here, that means she is not yet adopted.

Whitney’s adoption donation is $250.

Are you SINGLE???  Meet Fletcher – he is looking for you!   This boy will charm your pants off, kiss you, and be your best friend.  He loves walks, makes himself at home on your lap, he can dance when you come home.  Fletcher is looking for a life long partner, a monogamous relationship as he does not plan on sharing you or his food.

Do you need a snuggles and kisses and a loyal best friend?  Fletch is best at that!

Fletch is a 5 yr old boy – weighs about 17 lbs, and is thought to be a Havanese mix?   He does not appear to shed, and has a gorgeous coat.  Fletch is up to date on all his vaccinations, he is neutered, microchipped, and heart worm negative.  Fletch will need to be brushed frequently and groomed every 4-6 weeks so please factor that into your consideration for Fletch.  He loves being walked several times a day and making new friends on his walks.

Fletch was surrendered to rescue as his owner is going into long term care.  Fletch does best with a single family, and no other dogs to compete for your attention or resources.  He would do best living in a single family home, not an apartment.

Fletch would benefit greatly from some structured training in his new home and an experienced handler.

Fletch is fostered in Leesburg, Florida and you will need to travel there to meet him / adopt him.  We adopt to Florida residents only.

His adoption donation is $200.

ADOPT PLUTO!

Leesburg, FL

Pluto is a vivacious young 3 yr old thought to be Standard Poodle. He is 44 lbs., a handsome silver sable we think. He loves his people, has loads of energy, and needs a minimum of a 6 foot PRIVACY FENCE ALL the WAY AROUND and a decent sized yard to run and play at his new home. (NO EXCEPTIONS PLEASE)  Pluto loves everyone, loves affection, and you can hold him like a baby.  His antics are quite entertaining.  As far as other dogs, he will run and play non-stop with them – and he does not have a mean bone in his body. However, not all dogs like his type of full throttle play! Pluto is all smiles, a very happy delightful boy, and you can’t help but fall in love with him. He is super smart, and he gets bursts of energy!  He has been through extensive training, knows basic obedience, and walks well on a leash…..until there are other dogs or distractions and then he can lose focus and go into jumps, howling, zoomies and leaping over fences mode. He will literally melt your heart and gives lots of hugs and kisses! He does not like to be bothered when eating but we are working on that.  He loves riding on a golf cart and going for rides in the car. His new owner will need to help him channel his energy into something positive he loves such as dog sports and games he can engage in or jogging!  He loves to destroy toys!

We recommend Pluto’s new owner continue his training as he is eager to learn. Pluto is not a service dog candidate or an emotional support dog candidate, or a candidate with a home with small children. He requires frequent brushing, and monthly grooming. He is a little wild on the groom table but will do fine with an experienced groomer. Pluto has a high prey drive and he will chase and he will counter surf and he loves getting in garbage – but what Standard poodle doesn’t?  Pluto does not do well with cats or farm animals….as he will not stop chasing.

Pluto is house trained, crate trained, and looking for a home where you are home most of the days/evenings. He will not do well in a home that crates 4-6-8-10 hours a day. Preference will be given to those with Standard Poodle experience. Pluto is crated when he is left home alone.

Pluto is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, heartworm negative, and microchipped. He appears to be in perfect health. We adopt to Florida residents only. A home visit is a pre-requisite to be approved for adoption.

If you would like to know more about Pluto, please complete an adoption application at www.viprescue.org.  Please do not submit an application if you do not have a minimum of a 6 foot wood/vinyl/concrete fence on all sides and a Florida resident.

Pluto’s adoption donation is $450.

Lil Bubba will do well in a home where the owner is home most of the time and he has a like size dog to play with.  He whimpers when left on his own.  We have not crated him as there has been no need and he is not accustomed to being crated.

Lil Bubba is current on his vaccinations, neutered, heartworm negative, and is microchipped.  He is having a dental and will be available for adoption Dec. 21st.    LIL Bubba requires frequent brushing as he has tight curls, and needs grooming every 4-6 weeks.
