ADOPT KONA!  Leesburg, Florida, 34788

Kona is a smart, sweet, active, handsome large adult Black Standard Poodle looking for a new home due to no fault of his own.  He will turn 9 in March 2020 and he hopes to celebrate his birthday in his new home with his very own Birthday Party!  Kona was stressed and anxious when he came into his foster home, but quickly warmed up, got his appetite back, and started playing with the 2 Standard Poodles there.  It was not long and he showed us his spunky happy playful side. Kona is mild mannered, he is full of love and affection; and is a true Velcro dog that is looking to be your loyal best friend. He wants nothing more than your attention and to be with you wherever you go – that includes the bathroom!  Kona is 75-80 lbs., a big boy!  When Kona came to rescue his coat was severely matted from neglect and he endured a shave down gladly.  He has a lovely thick curly coat that will grow back in due time.  Kona likes to be brushed, massaged, going for car rides, playing with other dogs, lounging in a dog bed, sitting in the recliner, stretching out on your couch, and sleeping with you if you allow.  Kona catches on to new things quickly – he is leash trained, house trained, and crate trained.   He could use a refresher course in some basic obedience training such as COME and learning to properly EXIT DOORS!  Kona is treat motivated which makes for easy training.  As with most Standard Poodles, he is a counter surfer, so anything left on the counter, table, nightstand, end tables within his reach, he will consider it is his for the taking and shame on you for letting it happen!  Generally speaking he primarily is looking for edible items, but then he might try your glasses or hearing aid, or other personal items as time allows.  He has not been destructive at all in his foster home but his foster is experienced from her own counter surfers.    Kona is social and enjoys being out and about and with you.  Kona has played well with two other Standard Poodles in his foster home, and previously lived with multiple small dogs with no issues getting along.  We are told he is not fond of cats but we have not tested that.  We will assume NO CATS for now in his future home to be safe.  Ideally, Kona would like a home where there is a retiree or work at home parent with nothing more to do than to pay dote on him all day!   So far, we have observed that when his foster mom leaves, he stays by the door waiting for her return.  He is a loyal boy.

Kona requires frequent brushing and frequent grooming.  Kona is a champ for bathing and groomers, he simply loves the attention.  He seeks your approval, and he is a needy boy.  However, if you let him know you don’t have time for him at the moment, he will give you a break. Kona will bloom in a forever home full of love and attention!

Kona is current on his vaccinations, heartworm negative, microchipped and recently had a dental.  We are not aware of any medical issues.  Kona does have some lumps and bumps that is common for the breed at his age.  Testing has been completed and deemed not necessary to remove any at this time.

REQUIREMENTS for KONA’s NEW HOME:

-Minimum 6-foot privacy fence on your property for Kona – there are no exceptions so please do not attempt to bypass this requirement, please do not apply if you do not meet this requirement because we do a home visit prior to adoption and you are wasting your time.  We have many dogs for adoption that do not require a fenced yard so please, continue your search!

-You must be a Florida resident.  We do not ship or transport dogs to adopters.

-No cats in your home or outside your home.

-To meet Kona, you will need to travel to Leesburg, FL 34788.  If you cannot do that, please look for a rescue dog closer to you.

-Kona has never lived with children, so we are recommending either no children or adult children.  He is almost 80 lbs. so leash walking with a child when a squirrel crosses paths would not be pretty.

-We do not recommend dog parks for any of our adopted dogs.  Kona is no exception.  Play dates at your home or other homes is highly recommended.

If you would like more information on KONA, or to meet Kona, please submit an adoption application and our volunteers will process your application and answer your questions.  www.viprescue.org

Kona’s adoption donation is $250.

Thank you for thinking rescue!  Following are photos of Kona before he was shaved down so you can see what he could look like when his hair has grown back.

Meet Hannah!  

FENCED YARD at RESIDENCE REQUIRED:  NO EXCEPTIONS

Hannah is approximately 2 yrs thought to be Maltese/Shih Tzu blend that will charm your pants off weighing in at 13 lbs.    She came to VIP Rescue with her 1 puppy, she was the perfect mother, and she is preparing to find her own home.

She is very much still a puppy with lots to learn.  Her  new home will have a fenced yard where she can chase squirrels, lizards, play ball, and run like the wind.  NO EXCEPTIONS.  (We have many applications for Hannah but so far no one has the fenced yard she is dreaming of!)    Inside, Hannah needs lots of toys in a basket she can empty multiple times a day and take to her bed – the bigger the better with squeaks please!  It keeps her occupied, and she will gladly play fetch with you and her toys.  She loves to perch herself on top of your sofa and chairs, so she needs to be welcome on your furniture.  She especially like to perch if there is a window she can watch everything going on.  She has not met a stranger, and she does well with like-size dogs so long as they love to play.  However, it does take a day or two for her to warm up to other dogs and engage.  She likes to ride in the car, has learned to ride in the cart at Petsmart, has ridden on the golf cart, and just wants your presence 24×7.  Yet, she is independent and can entertain herself for hours.  She is black with some brown and white markings…….she does not shed.  Her eyes will melt your heart.    She is crate trained, and before coming to rescue she was pee pad trained.  We have worked diligently on her potty training outside, and if we take her out every 2-3 hours, it is a success.  Overnite she will sleep in your bed and have no accidents – for 7-8 hours.  You will need to be disciplined  to continue her house training.  She is very smart, she knows come, sit, NO, and a short stay.  She loves treats and will do anything you ask for a reward!  She aims to please.   She rarely barks unless she needs something,    Hannah requires her new home to have a fenced yard to run and chase squirrels, birds, leaves, play ball, or chase lizards and a home where you are home most of the time.  She has learned to walk on a leash and requires a harness for walks.

Hannah will be spayed this week, and post healing she will be ready for her new home.  She has had all her vaccinations, she is heartworm negative, microchipped, and in excellent health!  We adopt to Florida residents.  Hannah needs frequent brushing and grooming, and is good for grooming except she hates the dryer.   You will need to travel to Leesburg, FL to meet Hannah.  Homes with a fenced yard will take precedence.  A home visit will be a pre-requisite.  Her adoption donation is $400.

Lilly /Largo

Lilly came to us as a nursing mom with 4 puppies  from a hoarding situation..
She had been severely neglected. She had been used to produce puppies for profit  to the detriment of her own health. She hadn’t had a dental, had an ear infection AND…..This  poor girl, also came to us with a huge lump hanging off her neck!
We had to wait until the puppies could take care of themselves before addressing Lilly’s tumor issues.
When the puppies were ready to be adopted, we gave Lilly a little rest then we worked on getting her back to her beautiful healthy self.
She had surgery last week, where we had the lump removed First Thing that weight a half pound.
She was doing so well, we took the opportunity to have her spayed at that time and gave her a dental.
She has drains in her neck, to be taken out this soon.
She has come through everything Beautifully!!!
That being said, Lilly is the sweetest little girl ever!  She’s a beautifully marked black and white Shih Tzu.
She’s thought to be 4yrs old.  She is about 15Lbs.  She has been brought up to date on all her vaccines and is on heartworm prevention.  She is micro chipped and ready for her new forever home.
So far, in her foster home,  she has gotten along with loads of people!  Both kids & adults.  She gets along very well with other dogs and cats too!  She just loves everyone.
And her favorite thing is to just be with you.Lilly loves soft toys !
She is working on her leash skills, but that has been tough without being able to put a color on her just yet.  I’m sure she’ll pick it up quickly once given the opportunity.  And she seems to be doing great on her housetraining.
To adopt Lilly, the first step is to put in an application and the process of meeting her will begin.

WALTER / LEESBURG, FL

ADOPT WALTER

 

Walter is scheduled to meet a family Dec. 28th to see if it is a match.

Hi Fans! My name is Walter, and all I want for the Holidays is MY OWN HOME. I hope that Santa finds me one. If you know anyone that could find it in their heart to take in a Senior Man – I promise to be a very good boy! Yes, I am a senior boy, I am great on your lap, like to be with you wherever you go, and I snooze a lot. I was found as a stray, I was a hot mess, but my Foster Home has restored my dignity and faith in mankind. I love my Foster Dad! I have adjusted to my new lifestyle quite nicely. But – I am looking for something permanent. I have some arthritis, I have had a dental, and I am current on my vaccinations, and am heartworm negative. I am microchipped and weigh about 8 pounds.  I am fine with other dogs, would likely be fine with cats too. At my age, I am not so interested in other animals or long walks. I am quite vocal when I want something, and will tell you all about it even if you don’t ask! I am quite content sitting cuddling with you, and staying at your side. If you would like to give me a new home for the New Year, please tell Santa where to take me. If you are a senior, please ask VIP Rescue to tell you about our “Seniors for Seniors” Adoption Program.

If you would like to know more about Walter, please complete an adoption application at www.viprescue.org. One of our volunteers will contact you. I can be adopted to Florida residents. I am being fostered in Leesburg Florida and you would need to travel there to meet me.

Adopt Ginger

VIP RESCUE, Leesburg, FL 34788

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

PLEASE READ

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

Ginger is a lovely active female senior Standard Poodle looking for a new home with lots of time and love to give her. She loves attention, she loves toys, she loves to eat, she is playful, she likes to be with you wherever you are, so what more could you ask for?! Ginger weighs about 45 lbs, and is still gaining and estimated to be 9-10 years old. Ginger can talk, and lets you know what pleases her and what does not. Ginger is well-mannered, and a joy to be around! She needs a family where people are home much of the time, as she likes lots of attention. She interacts well with dogs of her own stature in her foster home so other dogs likely would be fine and very good company for Ginger. However, Ginger is a people’s dog, she has not met a stranger – always curious and affectionate! Ginger walks well on a leash. Ginger is house-trained and lets you know when she needs out. We recommend her being let out every 2-3 hours during the day. She loves to sleep in your bed and curl up next to you on the sofa. Ginger is hearing impaired, she cannot hear voices. She is well behaved and it has not really presented a problem. She knows come, sit, and down commands with your hands. We do recommend a fenced yard for Ginger at her new home and frequent walks. Ginger is in good health, she is heartworm negative, current on all vaccinations and microchipped, has had a dental and is spayed. We estimate Ginger to be about 9-10 years old. Ginger came to VIP Rescue as a walking parasite. She had chewed herself to raw meat in places and no hair present on her legs. Her owner passed away, and she was passed around and wound up being very neglected. Her hair is growing back, and when her coat fills in, she will be a gorgeous cream girl.
We only adopt to residents of Florida. A home visit is a pre-requiquisite to adoption. Standard Poodle experience preferred. Ginger is fostered in Leesburg, Florida and you will need to travel there to meet her.
Ginger’s Adoption donation is $250.
Thank you for thinking rescue! In order to start the adoption process, it is necessary to complete an adoption application. To do so, go to our web site: www.viprescue.org/SIT_SNFO.html
