Shaggy/Largo

UPDATE 8/21/19
Shaggy aka Happy Dog has her third update and we saved the best for last!
I’m the cutest little ShihTzu you will ever meet. I’ve recovered from a really hard life, but hey I’m looking forward not backwards. My coat is shiny and black and I’ve waves that my foster Mom loves. Yesterday I started even playing with toys for the first time.
I’ve been healing with my foster family for a little over a month. I’m good on a leash now, I’m housebroken and I have great manners.
I really need a fenced back yard because since I discovered that I can run, jump and bark at squirrels, it’s my favorite pass time and my happy place.
Did I say I love squirrels and I love being out in the yard, feeling grass under my feet and smelling fresh air.  My second happy place is right next to you.
I do need eye drops but I sit pretty because I get a treat afterwards.
I’m good with my foster pack and even try playing with them sometimes.
I do the cutest little dance when I know I’m getting fed which is why my foster Mom started calling me Happy Dog.  I’m easy, kind, loving, well mannered and just so sweet.  I’m 10 years old, appoximately 13 lbs,  up to date on my shots, micro chipped, had a dental and I’m spayed.
If you want a loving, loyal, sweet addition to your family please go to www.viprescue.org

8/7/19

Shaggy aka Happy Dog has come a long way.
She is approximately 10-11 years old. VIP saved me right before I was going to be put down, due to medical issues.  My skin is cleared up and my fur is growing back nicely.  I will need eye drops for the rest of my life due to dry eye, but I sit pretty because I know I get a treat after.
I am heart worm positive and will begin my treatments soon, so you have to live in the county so you can bring me to VIP Rescue’s veterinarian in Palm Harbor and they are time sensitive and have be done on the schedule.
I’m house broken, not too fond of a leash and I HAVE to have a fenced back yard, because I have discovered that I love chasing squirrels up in the trees and lay in the cool grass. If I could I would spend all day in the back yard, but my foster Mom won’t let me stay out when it’s too hot.
I’ve been spayed, had all my shots, I’m micro-chipped, had a dental. I get along with my foster pack but have not been tested with cats or children. If you are interested in making me a family member go to www.viprescue.org and fill out an application.

 

Up Date on Shaggy !

Hey guys, my foster Mom is so excited to give you an update! She calls me Happy now!
My skin is healing nicely and I have whispers of hair growing where there was none. My eyes are clear, even though I will need a few  eye drops for dry eye  for the rest of my life and I sit real nice for them to be put in and then I get a treat.

I’m approximately 10 years young, a delicate  12 lbs   shih tzu mix, with a precious under bite. I’m up to date on my shots, spayed, had a dental and  micro chipped  I do still need to have my heart worm treatment, but I’m a fighter and I’m sure that will be okay too.  VIP will pay for that treatment even if you adopt me, but you will have to keep time sensitive appointments at their vet in Palm Harbor.Please educate yourself on heartworm disease before applying .. Most of my health concerns are in the past !

I’m filling out with my hair and my weight and I just bounce with joy and life now. I would love to be your one and only even though I get along fine with my foster pack. Bonus, I’m housebroken. I’m going to be a shining diamond soon.   If you would love a love bug and want to see me complete my transformation into a beautiful girl please go to www.viprescue.org and apply. Thanks to all those that donated and I could still use some donations !

Pippie/Citrus Park

vip pippie b vip pippie a vip pippie e vip pippie d vip pippie c

The neglect,abuse,ignorance, lack of compassion,,  subhuman behavior that some dogs have to endure ,  takes us to our knees.
Then we witness, the super power of love when little ones like Pippie , emotionally bounce back, still wanting to love and trust us . If only humans  could emulate dogs , with the “all in ” spirit .
Pippie arrived with a coat of armor , solid matts soaked in urine.
Her coat was gently shaved off , inch by inch. Erin’s skillful hands , guiding the clippers , delicately over her painful, paper thin infected skin.She could feel her relief , section by section , as the pelt released..She could watch as Pippie , felt the freedom to move her ,as her legs , bound by the matts ,moved in comfort .You could see her joy , as she stretched, most likely in a long long time.
A new world was Pippie’s now ! She jumped and twirled and danced !
Her new beginning is underway !
Pippie is thought to be 7 years young and all of 4 lbs. She is spayed, micro chipped, current on her shots, on heartworm prevention had a  dental , and is being treated for inflamed skin. In spite, of her life’s neglect she , is a winner in every way . She loves humans , and just light up the room with her sparkling personality .
She deserves the best . To welcome Pippie to your house and home you MUST  complete an application
Thanks to Fluff Cuts for the grooming!

Life as a street dog did not work well for her, and she was turned into our vet as a stray. Her minor medical maladies  , are currently being treated . For those who know about the Maltese breed , they can go on for a very very long time. Most of us would love having an annuity , that ran the length of a maltese life.

Elly likes to have a choice of beds.A few around is a great plan . She is good with house training , or can double as a pee-pad princess ! She is flexible !   She could care less about other dogs ! Her coat is returning to it’s beautiful self , with good food and PLENTY of sleep !

 This mild mannered princess, is awaiting , her new address !

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

Hi, my name is Elly and they think I’m about 10 years old. I am a maltese and poodle(?) mix. I was found as a stray and taken to the vet to check for a microchip, but my family didn’t give me one so I’m looking for a new family.
I look kind of rough around the edges, but everyone still says I’m a cutie. I’ll be better in a couple of weeks when my hair can grow in. I don’t have any teeth, but I can still eat my wet food ok and my foster dad’s say I have a good appetite. I do need help with potty training though.
I’ve only been with my foster family a few days so I’m still getting settled in. I like sitting on the couch with my dads, sleeping on my bed on the floor and running around the house. I’m really small so you have to watch out for me when you’re walking and if I have a foster friend, it would probably be better if they were smaller. I also think I’d like to stay with an older person or family with older kids because of my size.
I have been given my shots, microchipped and taken care of by my new friends at the vets. If you’d like to adopt me please complete an application at viprescue.org.
