FLETCHER – Leesburg, FL

Meet Fletcher!  This boy will charm your pants off, kiss you, and be your best friend.  He loves walks, makes himself at home on your sofa, he can dance when you come home, and is looking for a sleeping partner?!

Could that be you?  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?   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 3 times a week, bathed every 2 weeks, 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 not allow you near his food or treats, and will snap if you try to take it away.    Outside of that, he is a very dog friendly – people friendly boy based on our observance.  It would likely be best to put him in a home with no other dogs so there is not a competition for food/treat resources.  He would do best in a home with no small children and a home that would consider feeding him in his crate or a room with the door closed.  Sometimes Fletch likes to escape and discover, so a home that is familiar with dogs that take opportunities to run is welcomed.  A secured 5 foot or higher fence would be ideal.  Fletch would benefit greatly from some structured training in his new home.

Fletch is fostered in Leesburg, Florida and you will need to travel there to meet him / adopt him.  His adoption donation is $275.

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.

Jasmine is a good travel partner and loves to go for rides and be out in public.  She is crate trained though it is not really necessary as she is house trustworthy. Jasmine is in good health, and has no known health issues. Jasmine is a typical Standard Poodle – fast, very agile, and enjoys walks and frequent exercise including chasing squirrels and lizards. Jasmine has mastered basic obedience and is leash trained with an easy walk harness.  She loves squeaky toys, but her favorite is to PLAY BALL and of course fetch! Jasmine loves her humans, follows them, and will sleep with you if you allow.  She is also a couch potato when you want to relax and likes getting on the furniture when invited.  She has her own recliner at her foster home.  Oh, she will also help you with your yard work!

MIKEY / Brevard County / Standard Poodle / Courtest Post

fullsizeoutput_5507 fullsizeoutput_5506

MEET MIKEY!

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA

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:  https://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.

CASPER – ADOPTION PENDING

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.

MEET CHARLIE and TEDDY!

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!

ADOPT WHEAT!

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.

Cookie Boy would really benefit from a new pet parent willing to help him loss some weight. He is good with other dogs, good on a leash and a willing couch potato.

MEET OSCAR!!!

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.

He does not like riding in a car.   Teddy is microchipped, hw negative, current on all his vaccinations, and recently neutered. He prefers not to be crated but then what dog likes that?  He is looking for a family that likes to play and has lots of time to devote to him.   Teddy’s adoption donation is $300.
