DORA / Leesburg, FL


Dora is a 16 year old tiny poodle weighing in at 4.5 pounds.  Her owner turned her in as a stray, so VIP to the RESCUE!  We have fattened her up, she has had a dental, and her right eye has been repaired.   She has a lot of personality and she loves her person.  She gives kisses generously!  She can be vocal, she is not shy, and she will let you know when she wants something.  She likes her short walks.  She likes sitting in your lap cuddling.  She loves to be carried around and sees little need to walk herself around if you will oblige.  She LOVES snoozing on your lap.

Dory has had all her vaccinations and is heartworm negative.

Dory would do well in a home with other senior calm dogs or no other dogs…….  She has no interest in other animals, her new owner with an empty loving open lap is her only wish.

Dory is in great shape for 16 yrs old!  We realize it takes a special person to take in a senior like Dory, but she will give you unconditional love every moment of every day she has……..and what more could one really ask for?  Dora means, the GIFT, and we hope to find the perfect place for our “GIFT.”

Dora is fostered in Leesburg, FL.  To meet DORA you will need to travel to Leesburg, FL.  No out of state adoptions.

Dora’s adoption donation is $100.









Up Date SD (Single Dog) in search of LH (Loving Human).  My likes: Belly rubs, short walks in the neighborhood, bones and toys.  My ideal human: an open heart, a gentle hand and a house full of bones and toys.  My ideal day:  Starts with a yummy breakfast followed by a short walk in the neighborhood.  A few toys or a bone to occupy the rest of my morning to early afternoon.  I might try to slip in an nap or two before dinner.  After a lovely dinner, another walk and a belly rub session until bed time.

If this sounds like your ideal day too, please fill out an application for Cosby.

Haili :

holding down the dog bed : Level EXPERT

holding down the day bed : Level EXPERT

holding down the couch : Level EXPERT

Just another exciting day at Camp Terri , where Haili never let’s you down , knowing that the dog bed, day bed or couch will not

escape on Haili’s watch . Haili is looking for a home where , she can do pretty much nothing !.  The long evening walks are not her thing . Endless hours of chasing toys, nope .. According to Haili , barking is such a waste of good sleeping time . So if YOU  , are looking for a friendly couch accessory , look no further .

Haili is thought to be a maltese /poodle mix. About 10 years young and about 12 lbs. She is house trained and , loves being next to her human , well, as long as you are sitting , like , on the couch . She is current on her shots, micro chipped , spayed , had an extensive dental and is on heartworm prevention.  So , if low key is your thing , then Haili is your gal . When she gets up , she will review , your application !


I can’t even imagine how terrified this delicate little girl felt has she wander , most likely for months by her intake condition . Matted , flea infested , hungry and limping until found by animal services . Most likely , she is a 9 year old , under weight at 9 lbs  Maltese mix . She is now  current on her shots,  spayed, micro chipped and on heartworm prevention . Sadly , her dental has left her toothless . But , believe me , that HAS NOT  slowed her food intake down .

It is apparent that her past included a home , with love . But , her story is unknown. She is quite familiar with household comforts, like THE COUCH  , the sound of the refrigerator opening , and air conditioning! Her recall of house training is returning also ! Playing has not been part of the last few days .HOWEVER ,   She excels at couch lounging and pillow hoarding . Haili does have a limp , and apparently it was a past injury , that has no fix . If a lovely , low activity companion pet is you wish , apply !   Stay tuned for her glamour shots !

Bach is thought to be a 12 year old 12 lb poodle.He is current on his shots , micro chipped, neutered and  on heartworm prevention
Bach was very sick when he came to us. He had an infection in his liver as well as heartworms. both have been taken care of. We feel he was mistreated, he doesn’t like loud noises or yelling. He is very timid but warms up with love and kindness. he loves to cuddle when you are laying down. He needs to be in a one dog family with an experienced owner. He is potty trained and loves to run in the fenced yard.
We are guessing he’s about 12 years old. He needs you to help him become the sweet, loving dog he can be. PLEASE consider donating to his forever foster care

Jolly 1
Jolly has been in foster for over two years and approximately 10-12 years old.  He is  not adoptable because of his past neglect and abuse. His expenses every month are for heart guard, nexguard, eye drops,a and supplements to give him the best quality life he can have. We groom him because he can’t be groomed by anyone but it’s a 4-5 hour job.  He occasionally needs antibiotics for his eyes, he is completely blind but had re occurring eye infections. We would appreciate a sponsor or just donations to help with his care. Just because he is deemed un-adoptable doesn’t mean he shouldn’t be cared for and loved by a permanent foster/hospice. He came from a puppy mill. It averages between 30-60 dollars a month. PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING TO HIS FOREVER FOSTER CARE
