Seminole, FL

Meet Winnie, a sweet, 10 year old Coton de Tulear. Winnie has lived most of her years in a puppy mill and sadly never received the love and attention from humans that all dogs deserve! For the past 2-1/2 years she has been in a private home and was surrendered due to no fault of her own. Sadly, sometimes life just happens.

Winnie can be very timid around new people and surroundings but will slowly come around if allowed to progress at her own pace. Her former owner says she loves to snuggle in blankets and clothes, and will sometimes want to be picked up to enjoy some petting. She walks well wearing a harness and enjoys car rides and going to the groomer. She’s fine with small dogs (and cats), but might also enjoy being an only dog so that she could have all of the attention.  An adult only home is recommended.

Winnie had a recent dental and was only able to keep a few of her teeth so she may need a diet of soft food. She is accustomed to having access to a doggy door and will go outside to do her business if there is one. She is also an escape artist and needs a home with a VERY SECURE FENCED YARD.

Winnie is up to date on vaccines, spayed, micro-chipped, and on heart worm/flea preventative.  Please complete an application to welcome this deserving girl into your heart and home.

Seminole Pistol

Pistol is a gorgeous mix of Yorkie and maybe Westie, but a terrier none the less. Sweet boy that get’s along with his foster pack ok but would not mind being your one and only. He is approximately 9 years young and that is the truth. He has a beautiful prance while walking. He’s housebroken, good on a leash, but hasn’t been kid tested yet. He is up to date on all his shots, had a dental and lost quite a few teeth and has been neutered. He is on HW prevention. He was surrendered when his mommy had some health issues and could no longer care for him, so please be patient as he adjusts to his new life, a new world for him. His coat is stunning and he truly is a sweetheart. If you are interested in making Pistol part of your family you must submit an application at

Puppies are a lot of fun and a lot of work . Puppies bring life to  a home, and a lot of work.. ! Did I say a lot of work ?
They require a lot of attention and time and human agility!! As you guide them to a well mannered social companion pet, plan on teaching yourself to teach them to be great companion friends !
In exchange, they will teach you some valuable lessons .
Put your shoes away .
Close all doors, gates and toilet lids .
Phone charging wires are expensive to replace.
You aren’t as young as you think.
You aren’t as quick as you think you are.
You aren’t as smart as you thought your are.
Look before you step.
Training isn’t as simple as you remember.
….just sayin’ !!

Amelia/Redington Beach

Amelia update!

Meet adorable, sweet, adoptable Amelia!! Amelia is thought to be approximately 3 years old and weighs 28 lbs. She is most likely a terrier mix

When Amelia arrived at VIP Rescue, she was emotionally broken and heart worm positive. Since her arrival, Amelia has spent her time with a couple of different experienced VIP fosters. She has completed her heart worm treatment like a champ and no further restrictions or requirements are needed except regular monthly preventative, so YAY!!!!

Amelia is learning doggy confidence, human trust, touch and affection, exposure to inside/outside life noises and stimuli, and small changes within her known space. She has made amazing progress and her confidence continues to grow! She exhibits a willingness and desire to expand her horizons and has made great strides in learning how to be a dog and a household pet. It is truly a beautiful thing to be part of her story.

Amelia is still very shy, especially with new experiences and people. We believe that once she finds her forever home, she will settle in very nicely if given time, patience, love, and a welcoming, calm, consistent environment. That is clearly what we have experienced in our VIP foster homes and while we are honored she has learned to love and trust us, it is time for us to keep our bigger promise to her and expand her world. She is ready. Are you?

Amelia is excellent with other social/friendly dogs and has been around many during her time with VIP. She likes her personal space, but as long as others respect that, she will quickly initiate doggy intros. We believe that Amelia would greatly benefit from having another confident dog in the home (or close knit extended family type structure). A meet and greet will be required.

Amelia seeks experienced dog owners who are easy going, patient, soft footed/soft spoken, have a quiet lifestyle, and who are willing to continue to grow her amazing soul. She is not suited for a home with small children, nor one that hosts a lot of guests/teens/parties. A fenced-in yard is also required.

Amelia is spayed, current on her vaccinations, micro chipped, and on flea and heart worm prevention.

Please submit an application to if you meet the above stated requirements and would like to welcome Amelia into your home.
