Pippie/Citrus Park

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!

FLETCHER – Leesburg, FL

Meet Fletcher!  This boy will charm your pants off, kiss you, and be your best friend.  He loves walks, makes himself at home on your sofa, he can dance when you come home, and is looking for a sleeping partner?!

Could that be you?  Do you need a snuggles and kisses and a loyal best friend?  Fletch is best at that!

Fletch is a 5 yr old boy – weighs about 17 lbs, and is thought to be a Havanese?   He does not appear to shed, and has a gorgeous coat.  Fletch is up to date on all his vaccinations, he is neutered, microchipped, and heart worm negative.  Fletch will need to be brushed 3 times a week, bathed every 2 weeks, and groomed every 4-6 weeks so please factor that into your consideration for Fletch.  He loves being walked several times a day and making new friends on his walks.

Fletch was surrendered to rescue as his owner is going into long term care.

Fletch does not allow you near his food or treats, and will snap if you try to take it away.    Outside of that, he is a very dog friendly – people friendly boy based on our observance.  It would likely be best to put him in a home with no other dogs so there is not a competition for food/treat resources.  He would do best in a home with no small children and a home that would consider feeding him in his crate or a room with the door closed.  Sometimes Fletch likes to escape and discover, so a home that is familiar with dogs that take opportunities to run is welcomed.  A secured 5 foot or higher fence would be ideal.  Fletch would benefit greatly from some structured training in his new home.

Fletch is fostered in Leesburg, Florida and you will need to travel there to meet him / adopt him.  His adoption donation is $275.

ADOPT PLUTO!

Leesburg, FL

Pluto is a vivacious young 3 yr old thought to be Standard Poodle. He is 44 lbs., a handsome silver sable we think. He loves his people, has loads of energy, and needs a minimum of a 6 foot PRIVACY FENCE ALL the WAY AROUND and a decent sized yard to run and play at his new home. (NO EXCEPTIONS PLEASE)  Pluto loves everyone, loves affection, and you can hold him like a baby.  His antics are quite entertaining.  As far as other dogs, he will run and play non-stop with them – and he does not have a mean bone in his body. However, not all dogs like his type of full throttle play! Pluto is all smiles, a very happy delightful boy, and you can’t help but fall in love with him. He is super smart, and he gets bursts of energy!  He has been through extensive training, knows basic obedience, and walks well on a leash…..until there are other dogs or distractions and then he can lose focus and go into jumps, howling, zoomies and leaping over fences mode. He will literally melt your heart and gives lots of hugs and kisses! He does not like to be bothered when eating but we are working on that.  He loves riding on a golf cart and going for rides in the car. His new owner will need to help him channel his energy into something positive he loves such as dog sports and games he can engage in or jogging!  He loves to destroy toys!

We recommend Pluto’s new owner continue his training as he is eager to learn. Pluto is not a service dog candidate or an emotional support dog candidate, or a candidate with a home with small children. He requires frequent brushing, and monthly grooming. He is a little wild on the groom table but will do fine with an experienced groomer. Pluto has a high prey drive and he will chase and he will counter surf and he loves getting in garbage – but what Standard poodle doesn’t?  Pluto does not do well with cats or farm animals….as he will not stop chasing.

Pluto is house trained, crate trained, and looking for a home where you are home most of the days/evenings. He will not do well in a home that crates 4-6-8-10 hours a day. Preference will be given to those with Standard Poodle experience. Pluto is crated when he is left home alone.

Pluto is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, heartworm negative, and microchipped. He appears to be in perfect health. We adopt to Florida residents only. A home visit is a pre-requisite to be approved for adoption.

If you would like to know more about Pluto, please complete an adoption application at www.viprescue.org.  Please do not submit an application if you do not have a minimum of a 6 foot wood/vinyl/concrete fence on all sides and a Florida resident.

Pluto’s adoption donation is $450.

Hamster/ Largo

 

 

 

MEET HAMSTER!!

hamster new

vip hamster b

Hamster is thought to be 6 years young and 16.2 lbs. We were told he is a doxie/pom/collie mix.  His coat is very thick, shiny and super soft.

He’s a very sweet boy.  Almost completely house trained.  Walks well on a leash.  Loves to play…he is smart and he seems to love his plush toys

IMG-0430.IMG-0435 IMG-0429

He is current on his shots, neutered , had a dental , and is micro chipped.

He is working on getting along with his housemates.  He is wonderful with people.  He is learning to get along with the cats.   And his slight food aggression is only with other dogs, so he’s working on new friendships with them.

I think he’d prefer (and thrive) being an Only Child.

He is being treated for HeartWorm disease.  This means in order to adopt him, you must be within a 1 hour radius of our vets in Palm Harbor for visits.

You must make out an application for Hamster.  His adoption fee is $250.

Peter/Clearwater

And the prettiest tail prize goes too !!!!   Peter was said to be a terrier /yorkie mix. Frankly , looks like a Shih Tzu , but who cares , cute is cute , whatever you want !

Peter had it all , the loving mom ,  little canine bro,a home,  lots of land, food every day , vet care , preventions ,  frequent grooming ,his bed and walks… then.. illness struck his mom. His brave mom, chose to be pro-active in rehoming him, and returned him to VIP, instead of selfishly waiting to the last moment . So he easily , transitioned back to his  original foster mom , and we begin the search for another great home.

Peter is most likely 6 years old and about 11 lbs. He is current on his shots, micro chipped, neutered , has had dental care and on preventions.

He is good on a leash , good , not perfect , with housetraining. He is fine around other non-pesty small dogs, and likes kids, over 9 that have learned to respect animals. He is quick , so a fenced yard is a good plan. Loves car rides ! Likes toys and does have some separation anxiety. He is all in , for by your side, on the couch , and next to you at night .

To Welcome Peter to your heart and home, you must submit your application on our www.viprescue.org site
