Norman/Indian Rocks Beach SCHEDULED MEET AND GREET applications closed

 

Norman is thought to be a 5 1/2 year old PBGV (Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen) that came into VIP Rescue from a hoarding situation. He greats along excellent with other dogs and is curious, but nonreactive to the foster kittens so I suspect he would do fine with cats as well.

Upon arrival at VIP, he had surgery to correct a cherry eye that is still healing up but looking good. Norman weighs 25 pounds, has been neutered, is up to date on his vaccinations and is on flea and heart worm prevention. He is not a huge fan of the open outdoors because loud noises and unfamiliar objects and occurrences currently concern him so a fenced in yard will be required for him. Norman is making good progress on both his potty skills and walking on the leash. Interested in meeting Norman? Please submit an Application to VIPRescue.org

Pearl/Citrus Park

Hi, My name is Pearl and I am a 10 year old maltipoo. I look like a stuffed animal, but I’m real!
My foster dads say I give good kisses. All day long I like to give kisses. I also love to lay next to you (or on you) and my favorite spot is up on the back of the couch. I am not very active and am perfectly happy just laying around. I get along well with my doggie sisters and brother cat. I need to still work on my house training, but I’ve been trying. A little patience and help and I’ll learn.
They say I’m going to want to live with someone who has lots of time to spend with me. I’m really small so I’d be better off with no small kids.
My eyesight in one eye isn’t so good (glaucoma)and I’m currently on meds for it. If it doesn’t get better I’ll have to have it operated on to take it out, but that won’t erase how cute I am.

Pearl is only 5.4 lbs. She is spayed, micro chipped, current on her shots, on heartworm prevention and had a dental with extractions .

Baby/Citrus Park

Hi, My name is Baby! I’m thought to be a 6 year old terrier/papillon mix. I’m loving my new life since VIP took me in. My foster dads say I’m warming up to them and they think I’ll be a real sweetie once I get settled in. I get along with my foster dog sisters and I’m still not quite sure about my foster cat brother. I only chase him when he runs though, but I’m very curious about him. I appear to be housebroken and as long as I go out on a regular schedule, I’ve been a good girl. I like to get scratchies on my head and my big ears. I like to hang out on the floor in my bed beside my humans. I won’t jump up on the couch even when invited and when I was put on the couch I jumped down right away. We’re still trying to figure out exactly what is going on with regards to that. I did sleep all night through on my dad’s bed and also in my kennel in my own bed. I guess we’re all going to learn new things about each other every day.
I am spayed, current on shots,micro chipped had a dental, but I’m heart worm positive. This means I have to take things easy for a while. I also must go see my doctor to get another treatment so you have to be available to take me to Palm Harbor. My new family must be in Pinellas, West Pasco or NW Hillsborough.
*****Heartworm treatments run over the course of about 5 months . There are about 4 of them. They are DATE SENSITIVE . Please educate yourself about heartworm disease before you apply You must submit an application !

Wherever his favorite person happens to be!   He will gladly share his home with another dog (not cat tested), but definitely loves human company.

He gets a B- for housetraining but is so smart and eager to learn, he should be earning his A+ once settled.   Duke loves leash walks and patiently allows you to harness him up to go exploring!  His excitement sometimes has him galloping ahead to lead the way but he quickly responds to corrections, and is very manageable.  Duke requests a fenced-in yard, no very young children, and someone to take him on his daily walks so that he can explore all the world has to offer.

Hi,
My name is FiFi and some people might say I’m a hot mess, but my foster dads say I’m a diamond in the ruff.
I arrived at VIP after my owner could not take care of me. Sadly, I currently have ear and skin issues but we’re working on clearing them up. Once my skin is better my hair should grow back nicely. I also have a cataract in one eye and vision problems with the other, but it doesn’t stop me from getting around.  I am thought to be a ShihTzu mix of 7 years and 12 Lbs I’m spayed, up to date on shots, have good teeth had a dental , micro chipped and on heartworm preventionand am ready for adoption.
I LOVE to sit in my daddy’s lap. I’ll just curl up and hang out all day and I love to give kisses. I get along with my foster sister dogs and brother cat. I’m working on my house training and have been a good girl on my pee pads, but you’ll need to be patient with me while I learn a new routine.
.
I am low energy and would probably do better with no kids and someone who wants a lap dog.
