I am working on my house training and am doing better and if I get in a routine with you I shouldn’t take too long to get it right. 
I get along well with my foster dog sisters and cat brother. I don’t bark too much, but when I want something I’ll let you know.
I sleep ok in my kennel, on the couch free roaming the house or in my dad’s bed.

Duke /Seminole

Are you looking for unconditional love and kisses galore?  A best buddy and shadow?  A playful, well-mannered, and affectionate companion?  Then Duke the snuggle-bear may be the one for you!

  At approximately 14 lbs., this silky terrier mix (?) will play “hard to get” upon first meeting, and prefers to make the first move, but will very quickly become your best friend and shadow!

At approximately 2 years young, Duke still has some playful pup left in him but also knows how to “chill” and will gladly snuggle up next to his favorite person. His favorite spot? 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.

 Duke is neutered, current on vaccines, micro chipped and on flea and heartworm preventatives.

 To welcome Duke into your home, please complete an adoption application at www.VIPRescue.org.

FiFi/Citrus Park

 

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.
If you are interested in helping this little lady reach her full potential and be the little diva she once was please complete an application at www.viprescue.org.
