Daquiri – Osteen, FL


Meet Daquiri!  He is an affectionate loving senior boy at 10 years old born 10/24/12.   Daquiri, his offspring and siblings were found on 5/22/2022 locked in pens outdoors with no access to food or water after their owner was found deceased.  Daquiri came to VIP Rescue weighing in at 41 pounds; he had lost 24 lbs. and was in dire shape when he came into rescue.   Under the excellent care of our VIP Rescue foster home, and our wonderful veterinarians, Daquiri has gained much of his weight back, was neutered, and is flourishing in his foster home.  He is ready to find his new home.  

Daquiri is house trained, a Velcro dog, would love to sleep next to you on your bed and accompany you wherever you go.  In his prior home, 

Daquiri was a certified Therapy Dog and was active in a local Therapy Dog organization.  He likes to go shopping with you, go out to eat with you, and kindly greet kids and adults while out with you.  He gets along well with the dogs in his foster home and others we have introduced him to.  He is friendly with adults and children alike. Daquiri walks beautifully on a leash, he likes to ride in the car with you and does well on the grooming table.  He barks after you come home as if to tell you his opinion about that!  Daquiri has diminished night vision, however, he can navigate fine inside a home and outside during daylight.  At night he likes to stay close to you. Daquiri is an easy dog, and does not ask for much……affection, quality food, walks, body rubs, naps, and frequent brushing and grooming.  He can still run and breaks out in poodle zoomies when outside in his fenced yard.  Daquiri is in great shape for his age!  He is looking for a home with open arms for a senior boy that has lots of love and time to share.  


Daquiri is recently neutered, up to date on all vaccines, heartworm negative, had a dental, and is microchipped.   Daquiri is fostered in Osteen, Florida.  To adopt Daquiri, you must come to meet him at his foster home, and introduce your dog(s) to him to make sure it is a match.  He has not been cat tested.
