PLEASE READ ENTIRE BIO

Scout is an adorable 1 year old, 12 lbs west highland terrier / mini schnauzer mix puppy,. For sure, this little guy is ALL puppy! Puppies are tons of fun but do require ALOT of work and training on your family’s part to be the best pup he can be! He needs love, attention and lots of consistency especially for housebreaking! His little bladder can’t hold it all day so please make sure you can commit to the puppy not being left alone for long periods of time. If that’s not possible, please consider one of our adult dogs which might be better suited for your lifestyle!

He is learning leash walks, he does get a little protective at first if we see other pups on the walk. He would love to have a human or 2 for his new family, we feel he would do best as a one and only… as long as his human can play, play, play! MUST be very active as he is quite the energizer bunny when it comes to attention and playtime! If you have kids they should be at least 12+,we think that would be ok. He loves to play ball, and would all day if you have the energy and patience. He does play with fluffy, stuffy toys on his own. He loves to snuggle after playing, and his favorite place is on top of his human, maybe a lap or your legs. As long as part of him is touching his human.

He would need a single family home preferably with a secure fenced in yard so he can have a place to run and burn some of his puppy energy off. An active family that would take him places would be great also. He is mostly house trained, but still being a puppy, he needs to get out often and of course he is going to need to get into a routine in his new home, but he is getting there! He is in a foster home with other pups and is learning quickly how to be a “good boy”.

Scout was surrendered as he was not in a safe environment. He was in a home that had too much energy and activity. Yep that can happen sometimes. There were younger, active, vocal kids along with larger, active vocal dog. And active vocal adults.. This caused Scout some confusion. Several months ago he started, as his communications To become growly/and growling at the active, vocal energy around him.. He also developed some resource guarding. There was some training to try to correct this. His foster mom is continuing his training.. He’s a work in progress. He is also FEARFUL of men. He takes a little bit to trust. His new home will need to have a confident Alfa human to teach him and guide him on all things trusting and how to be the BESTEST boy. And to build his confidence. Prefer a home without men.

Don’t let all the cuteness fool you.? He’s a puppy. He’s a work in progress if you have the patience to work with him. He’s learning to be the bestest boy and who can resist that great smile, and those ears.

Scout has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and is on heartworm and flea prevention. Might he be the guy for you? Please visit www.viprescue.org to fill out an adoption application. Love and tail wags!!!! Sparkee

GOOD WITH KIDS: yes 8+ respectful

COLOR: tan and white

FENCED YARD: 6 foot secured, attached to a home.

Hello world! Id like to tell you a little bit about myself. I’m a 17 lb., six year young, active, Jack Russell scruffy terrier mix girl.

I’ve been known to be a little shy at first meet, but once I feel comfortable with you, let the kisses begin! Oh, and don’t forget the cuddles and hugs, because, you know, it’s all about me! I love love love kisses, If that’s not for you, then I’m probably not the pup for you! I’m known as “THE Velcro dog.” I want to please you every chance I get. I’m a little submissive when you reach down to pet me, I think that has to do with my trust issues, but with lottsa love and KISSES I’m sure it’ll get better. I do roll over on my back looking for those awesome belly rubs. (the best) I get along well with other dogs and I’m active and love to play, and really love those “zoomies”!I

If you think I’m the girl for you, you’re going to have to get used to liking tail wagging all the time.. yep tail wags that make noise on the floor, the couch, the wall….you get the idea, and don’t forget…..you are going to have to get used to kisses and cuddles!

My ideal home is definitely a quieter adult one, one who will commit to me with soft kind words and lots of patience until we become besties. I really really want my very own family, could that be you? I would prefer another doggy or 2 for me to play with, ’cause I love to play. If your are active and very playful I could be your one and only. A secure fenced yard, attached to a home is what I need, that way I can play and zoom, zoom, zoomies in a safe secure place. I’ve been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and started on heartworm and flea prevention. If you’d like to make me a part of your family, please submit an application to www.viprescue.org

Tail wags and kisses, Jeanne

Rory and Roderick – BONDED – Indian Rocks Beach

(Bonded pair, MUST be adopted together)

Dob: 1/08/2022 – We believe they are litter mates

Breed: Shihtzu mix

Weight: 10lbs

Gender: Males House

Trained: No, but we are working hard on it

Location: Indian Rocks Beach

Good with dogs: Yes

Good with kids: Yes, 10+ respectful

Color: Black and White

Fence: Required, not negotiable, needs to be securely attached to home

Please read ENTIRE bio

We’d like you to meet our 2 new furry friends, Rory and Roderick. They are 2 year old 10lb. Shih Tzu mixes weighing just 10lbs! When they arrived at VIP Rescue, they were so severely matted and most likely had never been groomed before but all that changed with a lengthy shave down and warm, soothing bath. Boy, we bet that felt so good!

These boys are bonded, and need to be adopted together. They always play together, sit together, sleep together, eat together, you get the idea. It’s funny, because sometimes while playing they are so vocal it sounds like they are fighting, but it’s actually all “talk” lol.

They do love to play, and are very high energy pups, running through the house at full speed, chasing each other, and playing with their toys together is their favorite things to do. When they finally get tired, (and they do!) their second favorite thing to do is cuddle up together or pile up on your lap! But….be forewarned, they will get up on tables, and Foster Mom has been working on household manners and boundaries, but in the mean time, she has kept her table tops clear from things they can get into or knock over! They can get into mischief, so you’ll need to puppy proof your home like you would do with a toddler especially with any wires on the floor to keep them safe. These 2 think whatever’s left on the floor is fair game, and theirs!

The boys are not house trained, and Foster Mom has them in belly bands for the time being and is working with them on their house training. It’s clear they have never been in a home where love was felt and no rules were in place. Their future home must absolutely be committed to continue all training so they can be the best boys we know they can be. Yes, they are adorable, but it’s going to take time and commitment from the right family. Due to their real high energy level, it’s best they go into a young, active family who can keep up with their antics and someone who is home more often than not is a must. They are slowly learning about leash walks, they are just now comfortable in their harnesses. Another clue they’ve simply not had a good start in life, but we will make sure their new “fur”ever home will have and give them everything they need and deserve. A single family home with a secure fenced in yard is a must for them, sorry, no exceptions because it is what’s best for the boys.

They are neutered, microchipped, current on vaccines and are on heartworm and flea prevention.

If you think these boys might be for you and you can meet all their needs, please visit www.viprescue.org to fill out an adoption application.

Please read ENTIRE bio

Hello! We are Sassy and Pippa, AKA Salt-N-Pepa,

I’m Sassy, a super sweet 8 year old and my bestest sister in the whole wide world, Pippa is 9. We LOVE each other and do everything together: sleep, eat, go outside, play, watch TV, snuggle. So anywhere we go, we definitely need to be together. When we first came to VIP we both went to the ‘dog’tor. I only needed a dental cleaning, but my sister is heartworm positive. She’s going to need special medicine and the doctor said it’s super important that she get that medicine on specific days so you’ll have to live close enough to bring her in on those time sensitive Vet visits. Our friends at VIP Rescue cover ALL costs related to her heartworm treatment and they will give our new family all the dates she needs to go to the Vet. She’ll need to hang low for a while during treatment though, no long walks and no running around until the “Dog”tor says it’s ok. All the protocols and “rules” will be discussed thoroughly with our potential new family. You would never know she was sick though! We are both happy, loving little girls. We LOVE the couch, it’s our favorite place. Especially if there is a human to snuggle up with. As soon as our foster mom sits down, we both try to get on her lap. After some happy wiggles, we will snuggle up as close as we can. We have to make room for our foster siblings too, which is fine, we don’t mind. As long as there are lots of snuggles and belly rubs for us too. Where we are now, we get to sleep in a big bed. Pippa wasn’t sure about that at first, she liked the couch, but I loved the big bed, and where I go, Pippa follows. It took her a few days, but Pippa likes this sleeping arrangement as much as I do. We like to go outside and sunbathe when it’s warm out, but we prefer to be with a human. We play a little and explore a little, but mostly lounge on the couch. We are both spayed, microchipped, current on vaccines and are on heartworm and flea prevention.

What do you think, do we sound like the girls for you!? Just tell us so!! Please visit www.viprescue.org to fill out an application for us! ?

Berg/St Petersburg

Dog Name: Berg

Dob: 11/16/22

Breed: Terrier/Schnauzer mix

Dog Weight: 15 lbs

Gender: Male House

Trained: Yes

Location: Petersburg, FL

Good with Dogs: Yes, but would do best as a one and only

Good with Kids:Yes

Good with Cats: Unknown

Color: Black /Tan/Gray

FENCED YARD: Not required, but if you have one that would be a bonus.

Hi there, I’m Berg, a 1yr old 15 lbs, happy Terrier/Schnauzer mix pup! My foster-mom says I’m the greatest dog ever! My perfect fur-ever home is full of love, cuddles, and treats. I love to be around my humans, following them around looking for love, cuddles, and treats. Like the Burg, this Berg is a foodie – be it a good kibble, a sturdy chew toy, or treats by the door or when I’ve been the goodest boy. I am potty and crate trained. I enjoy short leash walks around the block. I would do best in a home where “my” people are home more often than not. I have so much love that I would also prefer to be your one and only pup, as I want all the attention but…. If you have a submissive pup, I’m up for a meet and greet and see how we do. I am smart and curious. And did I mention I am still full of puppy energy? I am playful, agile, and strong. I’m very smart and treat focused so I’d love to find someone who has patience to train me to be the bestest boy (I’m mostly there to be honest). I’m FULL of puppy energy – but for the next month my activity needs to be limited. I was heartworm positive when I came to VIP Rescue from a rural shelter, but I have finished the treatment and feeling better every day. I’ll need to take it slow for a while, no long walks, jumping, or romping/zoomies in the yard until my “dog”ter tells us it’s ok. My VIP friends will explain everything in detail to you. I have a combo wire and hair coat, I do shed a little, but please know I will require grooming every so often, so keep this in mind when you are considering me for adoption. The cost can vary anywhere from $60.00 and up every 2-3 months. I am microchipped, current on my vaccines, I have been neutered and am on heart worm and flea prevention. Do you think I might be the guy for you? I sure hope so. If so, please submit an application with VipRescue.org. I can’t wait to meet you and dazzle you with my charm. Adoption Requirements: You must be a Florida resident, and be at least 25 years of age to adopt. To qualify for adoption, all of the pets in your home must be spayed or neutered, be current on all vaccines, preventatives, and have received consistent veterinary care. If you’ve had more than one Vet in the past 3 years, please provide all the names and number for each vet.

Tater / Redington Beach

Tater / Redington Beach AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION!!! viprescue.org

DOG NAME: Tater / Redington Beach DOB: 9-15-23 DOG BREED: Jack Russell mix DOG WEIGHT: 17 lbs currently – estimated adult weight 25-30 GENDER: Male HOUSE TRAINED: yes, as long as he is let out often LOCATION: Redington Beach, FL GOOD WITH DOGS: Yes GOOD WITH KIDS: Yes, 8+ COLOR: White and tan FENCED YARD: not required, recommended

Happy, happy, happy that’s how we’d describe this great boy! We would like to introduce you to Tater, a very active 5 mo old Jack Russell mix boy. He is currently 17 pounds, and estimated to be around 25 to 30 pounds give or take as an adult weight.

Tater is a very happy, busy and active puppy. Do you have a younger, active, playful dog Tater can play with? Are you an active family? Then he might be the cutie for you! Tater is great on leash walks, and is working on potty training and as long as he gets out enough, he’s a good boy with his house manners.(Remember, he’s still a puppy and can’t hold it that long yet!)

Tater is in the learning stages and all about learning to be a good boy, it’s recommended that he is placed in a home where he is not left alone for hours at a time since he’s still so young. Preference will be given to those homes that can meet his needs. He’s definitely not the couch potato type! He could be your one and only as long as you have an active life and he can be included with your activities. An active established pup in the home would help Tater burn off some of his puppy energy, and we think he’d really like that. Toys to play with, pups to play with, humans to play with, yup, that’s what he’s looking for! If you have a fenced yard he would love to do zoomies and explore. (Of course with supervision).

He is neutered, micro chipped, has age appropriate vaccines, and on monthly heartworm and flea prevention.

Adoption Requirements: You must be a Florida resident, and be at least 25 years of age to adopt. To qualify for adoption, all of the pets in your home must be spayed or neutered, be current on all vaccines, preventatives, and have received consistent veterinary care.

GENDER: Female

HOUSE TRAINED: yes, as long as I get out often. I will use tinkle pads if they are available.

LOCATION: Redington Beach, FL

GOOD WITH DOGS: Yes, but prefers to be your one and only

GOOD WITH KIDS: Prefer adult only home

COLOR: Black and White

FENCED YARD: not required.

Hi everyone, I’m Bonnie, a 9.5 year young (Active for my age) 15 lbs Shih tzu girl. My Mom had gotten sick and could no longer keep up with my care. Thankfully I made it to a “paw”some foster home here at VIP Rescue! I am now ready to find my “fur”ever family. IdealIy, I would love to be your one and only in my new home, but I have learned that I do get along with other mild mannered pups, but I do like being the alpha. I am house trained, as long as I get out frequently, but If I’m left too long without an outside break I do know how to use tinkle pads. I enjoy short walks when it’s cooler outside, and sunning myself in a yard or on a porch. I do like to play fetch with a ball, or I can entertain myself with toys. Will you have toys for me in my new home? That’d be great! Oh, I almost forgot to tell you, I do like to sleep in my humans bed. Yep, I’m just a “wittle” spoiled! Ha! I do have a touch of “attitude” every once in a while so an adult home would definitely be best. My hair grows and I do not shed, but I will need to be groomed on a regular basis (approximately every 6-8 weeks) Grooming can run anywhere from $60-120/per groom, so please keep this expense in mind if you are thinking of offering me a furever home.

I am spayed, microchipped, up to date with vaccines and on monthly heartworm and flea prevention, and also just had a fresh dental. I have by bags packed and I’m ready to goooooooooo! All I’m looking for is a loving, patient quieter adult only home to “chillax” in, could that be yours? Are you the home for me? Please submit an application with VIPRescue.org if you can offer me, Bonnie, a fabulous new home.

Sparkee / Redington Beach

Sparkee / Redington Beach AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION!!! viprescue.org

DOG NAME: Sparkee / Redington Beach

DOB: 7/23/23

DOG BREED: Dachshund / Chihuahua Mix

DOG WEIGHT: 15 lbs (currently, maybe 20-25 full grown)

GENDER: Male

HOUSE TRAINED: Yes, as long as he is let out often, is still in the puppy learning stage

LOCATION: Redington Beach FL

GOOD WITH DOGS: Yes, playful

COOD WITH CATS; No

GOOD WITH KIDS: Yes older, 8+, respectful that can deal with puppy playful energy

COLOR: Chestnut and white

PLEASE READ ENTIRE BIO

Sparkee is an adorable 6 month old 15 lbs Dachshund/Chihuahua mix puppy, (full grown could be 20-25lb). For sure, this little guy is ALL puppy! Puppies are tons of fun but do require ALOT of work and training on your family’s part to be the best pup he can be! He needs love, attention and lots of consistency especially for housebreaking! His little bladder can’t hold it all day so please make sure you can commit to the puppy not being left alone for long periods of time. If that’s not possible, please consider one of our adult dogs which might be better suited for your lifestyle!

He loves leash walks, he does get a little protective at first if we see other pups on the walk. He would love to have a human or 2 (or more) for his new family, he also would like to have a doggie or 2 either bigger or similar size, and young in his new home, just as long as they can play, play, play! If you don’t already have another pup in the home, that would be ok, but you MUST be very active as he is quite the energizer bunny when it comes to attention and playtime! If you have kids they should be at least 8+ we think that would be ok. He loves to snuggle after playing, and he still has his puppy teeth and needs toys that he can chew on, soft and hard, kong etc. He would need a single family home preferably with a secure fenced in yard so he can have a place to run and burn some of his puppy energy off. An active family that would take him places would be great also.

He is mostly house trained, but still being a puppy, he needs to get out often and of course he is going to need to get into a routine in his new home, but he is getting there! He is in a foster home with other pups and is learning quickly how to be a “good boy”.

DOG BREED: Yorkie Mix

DOG WEIGHT: 8 lbs

GENDER: Female

HOUSE TRAINED: Yes, as long as she is let out often

LOCATION: Redington Beach FL

GOOD WITH DOGS: Yes, my size or smaller 🙂

GOOD WITH KIDS: older respectful, 10+ COLOR: Black, grey, tan

FENCED YARD: She would love one

PLEASE READ ENTIRE BIO

I am the most adorable little pup you are going to see today, if I don’t say so myself!! I am a happy, adorable, 8lb 2 year old Yorkie mix. I’m one of those zippy, zoomie, toy playing, and it is all about me, girlly type, everyone that meets me falls in love with me. I do take a minute to trust, but when I do, look out cuz’ I want to show you it’s all about me and help you understand it is all about me, I will follow you around or let you carry me everywhere. You can take me on walks and I love car rides. You will fall in love with me when you look at my big beautiful eyes! I have a blankie that needs to go everywhere with us, cuz when I get nervous, I like to bunch it up and snuggle into it. I do love soft toys and am happy to throw them around and play. I LOVE sleeping in the human bed snuggled up with my blankie! I don’t like to be under the covers on the human bed, so I’ll just snuggle on top with my blankie.

I do need to be in an adult ONLY household with no small kiddos or grand kiddos, older respectful kids (10+) might be considered. I just don’t do well with small kids, k? I could be your one an only, If you have a similar size or smaller pup that is submissive nd playful, I would consider that too, but we would need to meet. See I like to be the boss and I will protect myself and be the bossy girly with more ferociousness than any 8 lb, girly should possess. In short no big dogs for me in my new home. I can also get sneaky and get on tables, counter surf or your desk (if you work from home) and try to steal food, I love food, so you gotta keep an eye on me and keep teaching me my manners!

I know my house manners as long as I get out often, I really don’t need a fenced yard as long as you take me out frequently for potty breaks. If you have a fenced yard that is a bonus, as I love being outside, I love to hang out in the sun and roll around in the grass. I don’t like to be chased by humans, I am fast and will run from you. The fenced yard would need to be very very secure due to my small size. I’ll also need to be groomed and brushed regularly or else I get all matted, so keep this in mind when you are considering me for adoption. The cost can vary anywhere from $60.00 and up every 2-3 months.

I’m looking for quieter adult “fur”ever home that has the time and patience for me, and one that’s home more often than not. I’m spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and am on heartworm and flea prevention. So…..whatya think? Am I the lil’ girlie you’ve been looking for your whole life? My blankie is packed, I’m ready to start new adventures!!! Please visit www.viprescue.org to fill out an adoption application! Hope to meet you soon! Love and tail wags!!!!

OZZIE / OSTEEN, FL

ADOPT OZZIE Osteen, Florida. www.viprescue.org

DOB: 2 years old

BREED: Standard Poodle

DOG WEIGHT: 72 lbs

GENDER: Male

HOUSE TRAINED: Yes

LOCATION: Osteen, FL

GOOD WITH DOGS: Yes, he is pet friendly, however, we recommend your pets be his size or larger, and that your pup is a high energy pup that loves to play.

GOOD WITH KIDS: Yes, however due to his size, we recommend age 12+ and their weight be equal or more than his weight.

GOOD WITH CATS: No

COLOR: Sable Silver

FENCED YARD: 6+ foot privacy fence required with plenty of grassy area to run and play.

Ozzie is a vivacious young 2 yr old Standard Poodle. He is 72 lbs, a happy go lucky boy, eager to please you. He loves attention, and he will give big sloppy kisses in return. He has a handsome silver gray sable coat. He loves people, he has loads of energy, and is a busy boy. His Foster Mom says he is like a Bull in a China shop, and he is the Energizer Bunny. Ozzie is very affectionate, gives big sloppy kisses, and will velcro himself to you. As far as other dogs, he will run and play non-stop with them – he does not have an “off switch” that we have found. We are working on teaching him to settle. He does not have a mean bone in his body, but his full throttle play can be too much for other dogs and kids that do not share his like energy level and size. He is learning to fetch, but prefers chasing! Ozzie is all smiles, a very happy delightful boy, and you can’t help but fall in love with him. He is super smart, likes car rides, and is easy to train using kibble for his treats. Ozzie is in excellent health, he did have an ear infection we have been treating we believe is due to a food allergy. We have sent off for his allergy test and should have the results back soon so we know what to feed him that he is not sensitive to. He has some training; he knows NO, SIT, COME, and DOWN, but they need more work to be reliable. We require Ozzie’s new family to continue his obedience training after he is adopted. He loves to go on walks! He needs an experienced agile handler that is not intimidated by his size or energy level and that will continue his obedience training. He would be a great agility candidate and needs a job. He is inquisitive, and loves discovering new things inside and outside your home and is very nosey. He puts things in his mouth, he carries them around, and drops them. He loves to poodle poke you with his nose and is very interested in your food. He needs supervision to not get into the wrong things when inside the home. 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 needs a minimum of a 6 foot privacy fence, and a decent sized yard to run and play at his new home. Ozzie 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 will do fine with an experienced groomer. Ozzie would not be compatible if you have cats in the home. Ozzie 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. Ozzie is crated when he is left home alone or unsupervised in the home.

Ozzie 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. Ozzie’s former owner had a change in their work, and could no longer care for him as they were gone for very long hours.

So…..whatcha’ think? Am I the big boy you’ve been looking for your whole life? Whatcha’ waiting for? My bags are packed, I’m ready to rollllllllll! Hope to meet you soon! Love and tail wags, Ozzie Adoption Requirements: You must be a Florida resident, and be at least 25 years of age to adopt.

Hi there, I’m Captain Jack, (CJ for short) I’m a sweet, happy, 10 years young itty bitty guy weighing in at a whopping 5.9 lbs! I’m said to be Pomeranian mixed maybe some chihuahua????  Does it really matter? Cause, you know, I’m just THAT CUTE!  I might be the cutest thing you see today!!! I was adopted from VIP Rescue last year, but sadly, due to my humans compromised health, they wanted what was best for me, so I had to come back here to look for another family to love me as much as my previous one did.

I am always smiling, check out my photos attached. I look at my foster mom so lovingly (not in a I’m hungry feed me kind of way) but I do love food (and my foster Mommy more…shhhh…don’t tell her, k?

I love my walks, I might even prance a little when I walk. I’m quite happy to hang out on a doggy bed or cuddle up next to you on the couch or chair, I don’t take up much room so you might not even notice that I’m in your lap because I am so itty bitty small! I love sunning myself in the yard when it’s cool outside (with you right there with me of course).    I know to go outside to do my business.  I will come when you call with a happy prance, smile and tail wag. I will require regular brushing, baths and grooming. (see photos when I had long hair but I currently have a short cut which I REALLY like)  Please take into consideration the time and money it takes for my care to keep up with my handsomeness. I get along with my foster siblings, maybe too much for one of the girly dogs. Ha!  (She’s such a pretty little thing) but I really need to be your one and only, and I would love an active family, someone who will take me on sniffy walks (early morning or evening time when it’s not too hot out) and get me out for my business or to see all the neighbors. Don’t let my age fool you, I plan on hanging out for several more years. 

I am neutered, up to date on my vaccines, had a dental, am microchipped and current on my flea and heartworm prevention.   

If you think you might be the family for me, please submit your application for review at VIPRescue.org

PLEASE READ ENTIRE BIO !!

Update 12-22-23 Hello World! Much has gone on in my life in the past few months. Mostly, the visit from my foster aunt has made me a bit of a ladies man. Don’t get me wrong, I still prefer the company of men, since I am a little toughie. At least that is what my foster mom tells me. However, the softer lap is definitely more comfortable. Plus the ladies seem to give longer belly rubs and I like that too. My leash walks are also much more fun now that I have a pack to roam the neighborhood together. My foster mom says I still might have a set back on occasion, but my behavior is much improved. So if you are in the market for a little project, I just might be the pup for you. We would consider a couple, but with that Female need to be extremely patient.

and the rest of the story Any incomplete application will NOT be processed. You should also call your Veterinarian’s office and give your permission for us to speak with them to gather the necessary information we need to process any applications. Failure to do so will result in your application being closed. 

Hello there, It’s me Cooper ( you may remember me from earlier cuz’ I’m still lookin’ for my forever person) I’m a 3 year old extremely handsome terrier mix boy. I have been told I am a member in good standing of the He-Man Woman Hater Club and am looking for a Daddy that has a lifestyle that allows me to keep my good standing. For some crazy reason, I just don’t get along with the lovely female human type. (I don’t really hate them, just not for me!)  I have no clue why, but hey, we all have our own “quirks”, right?

As a terrier, I have requirements that must be met by my future Daddy.  First, I must be the center of your universe. I love life as long as I get all the attention, so NO CHILDREN and NO OTHER PETS. In return, I will make you the center of my universe, snuggling and cuddling with you. Second, I require my Daddy to be a homebody, either work from home and/or retired as I am afflicted with separation anxiety. Third, I must be exercised on a very regular basis. I know that I really need an active Daddy and I also require a secured fenced in yard in a single family home (sorry, no townhomes, condos, manufactured homes and no rentals.) I know that’s going to eliminate some great Dads, but it’s what’s bestest for me. I might be little, but I require a lot of room to stretch my legs as I like to zoom, zoom, zoom throughout the back yard. It is my job to keep all predators out of the back yard and I am excellent at my job, if I do say so myself. Fourth, Bones and Toys!!!!  I enjoy chewing on bones and playing with my toys.  Fifth, lottsa love and patience!!! I am a good boy when all my requirements are fulfilled, which is mostly LOVE. I will also require regular grooming, so please keep that in mind. I share my current foster home with “Big Daddy” he sets all the rules here, and guess what? I’m a better boy for it.

I am neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and current on my heartworm and flea prevention! So, anywho, I just want to mention, and not to be mean or disrespectful, but if you don’t meet all my needs, please don’t apply for me. There are some other great pups in our rescue that might fit into your home better. I am neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and current on my heartworm and flea prevention. 

Applications that don’t meet my requirements will be not be processed and will be closed. 

Please visit www.viprescue.org to fill out an adoption application for me (might be the best decision of your life!) 

I really really hope my new Daddy is out there looking for his best boy, me! Cooper!

Standard Adoption Requirements: You must be a resident of FL., and be at least 25 years of age.  This breed typically lives 14-18 years, so keep his lifespan in mind if you are thinking of adopting. Your age should be appropriate for Coopers estimated lifespan.

DOB: 11/17/18

DOG BREED: Maltese mix

DOG WEIGHT: 11 lbs

GENDER: Male

HOUSE TRAINED: Yes, as long as he is let out often

LOCATION: Holiday FL

GOOD WITH DOGS: Yes, would prefer one in the home, similar same or smaller.

GOOD WITH KIDS: older respectful, 10+

COLOR: White and tan

FENCED YARD: Required

Hi Everyone, I’m Albert. I’m a very friendly Maltese mix who recently came to the fine folks at VIP Rescue. I’m looking for my “fur”ever home and invite you to take a look at me. I’m certain you’ll like what you see. Did I tell you I’m friendly? I love giving kisses and spending time with whomever is available.

I’m a handsome mix of white and tan, as you can see from my photos. I’m about 5 years old and weigh about 11 pounds, or so the “dog”tors tell me. I’m good with other dogs, similar size or smaller, prefer a playful small dog already established in the home, or consider adopting a 2nd pup, maybe one of our other adoptable pups that needs a playmate. We are not sure about cats, so if you have a cat and want to adopt me the cat should come to a meet & greet. Kids should not be an issue, although they need to be a bit older so they can play with me.

I’m working on my house training and getting better every day. It helps that my foster parents have a fenced yard, hopefully you will have one as well. I think I’d need to have a big yard if that’s possible, so this way we can play ball and I can run around and get lots of exercise to help wear me out. I can be very, very energetic at times.

I was just neutered and microchipped, a fresh dental, I’m current on my vaccines, and on heartworm and flea prevention as well. While at the “dog”tor I was also given a complete physical and found to be in good shape with no issues. Yeah!

If you would like to meet me! please complete an application online at VIPRescue.org. I hope to meet you soon!!

I’m an easy going pooch, who loves soft doggie beds, leash walks and of course, yummy food!  I’d love it if my new family will take me for leash walks a couple times a day and then afterwards we can snuggle up on the couch and watch some T.V. while relaxing! Oh, don’t forget, I’ll need to be groomed every 6-8 weeks, so please keep that cost in mind if you’re interested in adopting me. Grooming can run anywhere from $ 60.00 and up each time.

DOG NAME: Allie/ Redington Beach

DOB: 11/17/07

DOG BREED: Toy Poodle

DOG WEIGHT: 5 lbs

GENDER: Female

HOUSE TRAINED: no

LOCATION: Redington Beach, FL

GOOD WITH DOGS: Yes

GOOD WITH KIDS: unknown – 13+ respectful

COLOR: Grey

FENCED YARD: no

Hi there, I’m Allie, a 16yr old, 5 lbs, happy Toy Poodle girl, and Oh boy, did I hit the doggie jackpot when I found myself taken in by VIP Rescue! I am slowly getting comfortable and learning the lay of the land here, and I love to be around my foster mom and foster pup siblings. I do love slow leash walks, fluffy beds for naps and yummy food! This is great!

I recently had to have surgery on my eye’s due to a bad infection in one eye and a cataract in the other. I’m not sure how long I have been blind, but this is not new to me. When i was surrendered to VIP Rescue, they immediately took me to the “Dog”ter, and she thought that it would be best for me if both my eyes were removed, as I was in pain and it was definitely the healthier option for me. The Vet did some blood work and listened to my heart and it was decided I was healthy enough for the surgery. It has been a couple weeks now of healing and I am well on the road to recovery. Foster Mom said she can tell I feel SO much better! Those boo boo eyes were really hurting me. I have no trouble finding the water and food bowls and oh, those comfy beds! I know when it’s meal time and with my one tooth (yup, all my toofers but one are gone) I gobble my yummy food in no time. Foster Mom is the bestest cook ever! If you take me out frequently, I do my business outside, but to be honest, I do have accidents sometimes. It will take a bit for me to learn the way around my new furever home, and I am hoping in time I will find that perfect home to just chill in and enjoy my senior years.

I think I’d do best in an adult home, where someone is home more often than not. I love the company of my human, and I could be your one and only or I would be ok with a smaller pup already in the home. I love to hang outside, nap in the fresh air and snuggle up on your lap for a nap. I start to go in circles when I get excited, (especially at meal time!) or sometimes after a nap when I have to go potty. Grab the leash, and let’s go outside! Ha!

I’m an easy going girl who will require regular grooming so please keep that in mind if you’re thinking about adopting me. The regular schedule would be every 8 to 10 weeks with an approximate cost anywhere from $60-$90 per visit or maybe even more.

I am spayed, microchipped, current on my vaccines and am on heartworm and flea prevention along with being given a clean bill of health for a gal my age! Woohoo!

Do you think I might be the girl for you? Do you have lots of time to spend with a special little girl like me? If so, please submit an application with VipRescue.org

Hi there, I’m Lexi Latte, a 5yr old, 10 lbs, happy Schnauzer girl.

I hit the doggie jackpot when I found myself taken in by VIP Rescue and I am slowly getting comfortable and starting to come out of my shell.  I love to be around my foster mom and foster pup siblings.  I am learning what leash walks are and think I will get the hang of it pretty quick, but my foster mom feels a fenced yard is one of the things I will need in my furever home. I get along great with and play with the pups in my foster home, (they’re littles like me!) and I’m thinking I should have a similar sized  pup in my furever home too.   

I’m learning to play with toys now and I’m really having some fun!  I think I’d do best in an Adult home, but if there are children in the home, say 13+, we would need a meet and greet to see how we would do. I love to get carried around and love to sit on your lap, to hang outside with you, nap in the fresh air, and would love for you to take me everywhere with you or let me snuggle up on your lap for a nap. Do you have alot of time to spend with me? Cuz’ that’s what I like, lottsa love and attention!

I came into VIP Rescue with some ear issues that are currently being treated and hopefully it will clear up soon and I only need this routine for a short time. Foster Mommy will explain that to you. I am crate trained, and I like to sleep in one at night, no need to shut the door I go in on my own.  

I’m an easy going girl who will require regular grooming so please keep that in mind if you’re thinking about adopting me. The regular schedule would be every 8 to 10 weeks with an approximate cost anywhere from  $60-$90 per visit or maybe even more. 

I am up-to-date with my vaccines, microchipped, I have been spayed, had a recent dental, and am on heart worm and flea prevention along with being given a clean bill of health (except the ear thing) Woohoo!

Do you think I might be the gal for you? If so, please submit an application with VipRescue.org

Harold / Indian Rocks Beach

Available for adoption

VIPRescue.org

Dog Name: Harold

DOB: 12/12/2017

Breed: Shih tzu/mini poodle mix

Weight : 22 lbs current weight – Needs to a lose a few ;-(

Gender: Male

House trained: Yes

Location: Indian Rocks Beach, Fl

Gets along with cats: No

Gets along with Dogs : Yes

NO KIDS

Fenced Yard: REQUIRED – Fenced yard attached to your home.

Hi friends, my name is Harold! I’m a 6 year old, a shih tzu/mini poodle mix (a Shi-poo) who weighs about 22lbs(needs to lose a few). Do you remember me? I was adopted about a month ago and we tried to adjust to each other, but I learned that I need a home with only one human, I bond with one person and only one person. Life is a journey and we learned this about me. I’m all good now, and, well, I’m baaaaaaaack! And looking for my one and only human.

My favorite things are grassy backyards, car rides, going new places, walking the neighborhood on my leash, and of course, companionship and attention. I am a playful, friendly and affectionate guy. Did I mention super handsome too? Even got myself a new haircut, a big thank you to the nice folks at Pampered Paws Grooming Salon who volunteered their time to get me cleaned up! I sure feel better without all that long hot hair!! I will require regularly scheduled grooming appointments, so please consider the extra cost of that prior to submitting your application. If you cannot afford and are not willing to have me professionally groomed on a regular basis, like every 8-10 weeks, I am not the dog for you. Please consider one of my fellow short haired, non grooming required rescue friends instead.

I like and get along great with other friendly dogs, although I may bark when we first meet. Don’t take it personally, I’m just saying “hi, new friend.” Foster mom has introduced me to many dogs (and humans) and I love most everyone that respects my space, both in rest and play mode. (that’s a big thing with me) I share beds, toys and water bowls nicely too. Food, not so much – that’s my kibble! Paws of fellow canines!!

I would do well in a home with an already established small to medium size (under 35 lbs), friendly and very well socialized dog. I could also be an only dog, so long as I am your primary significant other. I do not want to be at home by myself for extended hours so if you work full time outside of the home, I’m really not the guy for you. I bond with one person and one person only in the home. If you are not a single human home I am not the guy for you.

Keep me on regular potty schedule and I’m pretty much housebroken. Like I said above, you need to be home to play with me and let me out to potty, not working all the time. I like routines and schedules, I’ll even let you know if you’re running late on my meal times. How do I do that? Foster mom calls it barking, but I’m really just talking to her about my wants and needs. I also “talk” to the delivery people, the garbage truck, people and things like big birds that appear outside the windows, and the doorbell, for example. I’m kind of like a little security alarm, which foster mom says can be a good thing, but if you or your environment is sensitive to canine talking (barking), I am not the doggie for you.

Foster mom says I am excellent on leash. She often walks me with 1-2 of my other dog friends and I don’t mind matching my pace with others. I love playing outside! I will need a single family adult only home with a secured fenced in yard for me to run, play and sniff. Sorry folks, no condos, townhomes, villas or rentals. This is not negotiable, and I sure hope you understand, but it’s what’s best for me.

Truth be told, I am not a big fan of those little humans you people call kids. If you have young children in your home or children that visit your home, I am not the dog for you. Please take note of this prior to submitting your Application because foster mom says this is not negotiable.

Foster mom does not have cats, but she’s got a little tiny dog that I am very friendly with and do not chase, but I really would prefer a “feline free” home, ok? Now, don’t I sound like the perfect pup? I think I am, but I do have some “quirks” that foster Mom will discuss with only the approved applicants. I will say that I MUST have an experienced dog owner, I’m not a 1st time pet for sure. You MUST be very active to keep up with all my playful energy, so if you’re a young, experienced active human, I might just be for you! Oh, another thingy, a home visit will be required for an approved applicant, and you must live within 1 hour of the St Petersburg/Clearwater area.

I am up to date on my vaccinations, neutered, microchipped, a fresh dental and on flea and heartworm prevention.

I’m ready to move along to my forever home, but foster mom is happy to have me for as long as it takes to find my perfect match, I’m not the easiest pupper to own due to my “quirks”. After reading and considering all of the above, if you think you might be the person for me, please submit your application for review at VIPRescue.org

ADOPTION REQUIREMENTS FOR HAROLD: You must be a permanent resident of FL, and be a very experienced dog owner, and as cute as he is, he’s not the doggie for a first time pet owner due to his “little quirkiness”. Harold does require a 6-foot fenced yard in a single family home. To qualify for adoption, all of the pets in your home must be spayed or neutered, they must be current on vaccines, preventatives, and have received consistent veterinary care. Harold could typically live 12-15 years, so keep his lifespan in mind if you are thinking of adopting him. Your age should be appropriate for his estimated lifespan. Adoption Donation: $350

Gucci / Indian Rocks Beach

Available for adoption

VIPRescue.org

Dog Name: Gucci/Indian Rocks Beach

DOB: 08/01/2015

Breed: Lhasa Apso / ShihTzu Mix

Weight : 10 lbs

Gender: Female

House trained: Almost, As long as she is let out often

Location: Indian Rocks Beach

Gets along with cats: Unknown

Gets along with Dogs : Yes

Fenced yard: 5ft or taller fenced yard attached to home required.

Hi there, it’s me, Gucci! You might remember me from a few weeks back when I got here to VIP Rescue. I was originally sold to someone from a breeder, and then sold again, and then……somehow wound up at Animal Control! But….that’s all behind me now and I’d really like to share with you how well I’m doing and how I’m SOOOOO ready for my “fur”ever home.

I’m an 8 year old Llasa Apso gal who weighs just about 10lbs now. I’ve been living in this great place called a “foster” home with a foster Mom and a bunch of little cutie foster siblings. I have what is called a youthful, playful energy about me, I love having the freedom to explore, lizard hunt, sunbathe and watching nature in the fenced in yard here with you of course to supervise me while I’m out here. Oh yeah, my new home MUST have a fenced in yard so I can continue all these neat things life has to offer. “Mom” said I do pretty well on leash walks, while doing all the “sniffies”!

I’m affectionate, cuddly and loving and I do like to give kisses and gets pets, and I like to play with toys and really love all the cuddly doggie beds too!

I like most other puppers, Mom said sometimes I can be a bit dominant, but I don’t purposely seek out any trouble, so I’m thinking if you have a pup at home already, they should be the more submissive type, but of course we’d have to meet to make sure we’d be pals. Oh, don’t forget that I’ll need to be groomed regularly so you’ll need to work that into your budget, it can run anywhere from $60.00 and up each time, but, it’s a must do to keep me all clean and pretty!

I’ve been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, had a dental and am on my monthly heartworm and flea prevention, so in other words, I’m ready to roll!

If you’re interested in me, please go to www.viprescue.org to fill out an adoption application. Sure hope to meet you soon! Licks and tail wags, Your friend, Gucci

Location: Indian Rocks Beach, Fl
Gets along with cats: Unknown

Fenced Yard: REQUIRED.

Nellie has blossomed into the sweetest dog in this past week, once a shy, unsure pup, she now feels more safe and secure and is definitely wanting to be with her “human” much more. She follows her foster Mom around and has become her “shadow”. She loves the backyard, grass and the shaded patio area and has a youthful and playful personality.

Nellie has started playing with her toys and enjoys the company of her foster siblings as well as couch “snuggles” with foster Mom. She listens very well and is eager to please as well as being food motivated for training. She’s getting the hang of house breaking manners, and has started learning to “ring the bell” to go out with the other dogs for potty time! Nellie hasn’t quite mastered leash walking, she’s trying but has a ways to go, so she will require a fenced in yard in her new home. We still feel it’s best if Nellie goes to an adult only home where she can soak up all the love with her new family

Hello rescue world, my name is Nellie, I am thought to be a 5 year old Lhasa apaso mix, and all of 10lbs. I was found neglected and in horribly matted shape. The “people” that had me obviously didn’t take care of me and I ended up at animal control, and in a way, I guess that was a good thing because I got lucky and my photo was shared with VIP Rescue Director Betsy and before I knew it, Vip Rescue jumped into action and took me into their Rescue along with 3 other pups I came in with that were in as horrible condition as me. WHO DOES THAT TO AN ANIMAL? We certainly didn’t do anything to deserve to be “forgotten”. VIP showed us love, gave us food, they welcomed us…No questions asked. We were shaved down as our hair was so matted, there was no saving it and we had a bath.. wow what a difference a day makes. We were immediately taken on a trip to the “Dog”tor, and a plan and schedule was made… we found ourselves on the road to recovery and the start of our next chapter in our new life. After all that “Vet” stuff that I had done, I needed time to decompress and understand what LOVE really means. I now have a full belly, I’m learning leash walks, I enjoy rolling around in the grass in the backyard and my favorite is a warm bed. I love sleeping in the human bed. I get cuddles and pets and kisses. My second favorite thing is a warm lap to nap on so I can just relax. What do you think? Does it sound like you can offer me the same? I’m looking for a loving quieter Adult home that I can be the center of your attention. Patience is a little of what I’m looking for my in my “FUR”ever home.

I can promise this… if you love me?? I will love you even more! I’m a little awkward and learning how to play because I was so matted, my leg movement were restricted, but now I’m getting the hang of it! I get really excited when I get attention and sometimes I might look a little uncoordinated. In the last few days, I’ve learned how to play, and I’m a totally different girl than a few weeks ago when VIP Rescue took me in. THIS. Is what a good hearted human does, not like that “other” one.

If you can give me the time and patience, I’m going to be the best girl ever. I’m working on house manners, as I was never given the opportunity to understand this, but I’m a quick learner and in no time I’ll have it down pat. I could be your one and only or if you have a HaPpY friendly pup already at home I would love to meet them. I’ve been spayed, ( thank goodness, no more puppers for me!) had a fresh dental, updated vaccines, and am on my monthly heartworm and flea prevention. Please keep in mind I will need to be groomed on a regular basis so I don’t get tangled and matter ever again. If you don’t think you can work this into your budget ($60–$80 every 6-8 weeks or so) please visit our web site and choose a pup that doesn’t need grooming. Well now, if you think you just might be what I’m looking for, please visit www.viprescue.org to fill out an application. Don’t forget to put my name, Nellie on the app. Hope to meet you very soon!

DOG NAME: West / Redington Beach

DOB: 10/25/18 DOG

BREED: Lhasa mix

DOG WEIGHT: 15 lbs

GENDER: Male

HOUSE TRAINED: Almost, as long as he is let out often

LOCATION: Redington Beach, FL

GOOD WITH DOGS: Yes

GOOD WITH KIDS: unknown – prefer adult only home

COLOR: White

FENCED YARD: not required.

Hi there, I’m West, a 5yr old, 15 lbs,  happy Lhasa mix boy. 

I’ve been with VIP Rescue for several weeks. You may have read about my story earlier on, because upon arrival I was in horrible shape, but a lot has happened and changed since I got here. I had to go right to the “dog”tor, because I had a very badly injured leg and the Vet thought it best to amputate it. But you know what? VIP Rescue got me all healthy again and gave me some much needed Vet care, love, and a safe place to lay my head at night. I really needed the last couple of weeks to rest and relax for my recuperation, and thanks to my “paw”some foster Mom, I’m now ready for my fur-ever home.   My surgery on my leg  has not hindered my ability to live and to LOVE. I love to play, eat, go on short leash walks, snuggles and ATTENTION. I’m learning house manners, if you get me out often, I do great.  

I get along great with other dogs or I could be your one and only. I’m learning to play with toys now and I’m really having some fun! Since losing that leg is new to me, I can do a step or two but no more than that.  Maybe in time I could do more, but that seems to be the only thing I have a problem with at this time. In fact, I get around just fine and am enjoying all the great things my new life has to offer. I think I’d do best in an Adult home, and one that’s going to love me and give me lots of attention.

I’m an easy-going, fluffy boy that will require regular grooming. Please keep that in mind if you’re thinking about adopting me. The regular schedule would be every 8 to 10 weeks with an approximate cost anywhere from  $60-$90 per visit or maybe even more. 

I am up-to-date with my vaccines, I have been neutered, had a recent dental, and am on heart worm and flea prevention along with being given a clean bill of health! Woohoo! Do you think I might be the guy for you? If so, please submit an application with VipRescue.org

GOOD WITH DOGS: Yes, but prefers to be your one and only

COLOR: Black and White

FENCED YARD: not required.

Hi everyone, I’m Bonnie, a 9.5 year old 15 lbs Shih tzu girl. My Mom had gotten sick and could no longer keep up with my care. Thankfully I made it to a “paw”some foster home here at VIP Rescue! I am now ready to find my “fur”ever family. IdealIy, I would love to be your one and only in my new home, but I have learned that I do get along with other mild mannered pups, but I do like being the alpha. I am house trained, but If I’m left too long without an outside break I do know how to use tinkle pads. I enjoy short walks when it’s cooler outside, and sunning myself in a yard or on a porch. I do like to play fetch with a ball, or I can entertain myself with toys. Will you have toys for me in my new home? That’d be great! Oh, I almost forgot to tell you, I do like to sleep in my humans bed. Yep, I’m just a “wittle” spoiled! Ha! I do have a touch of “attitude” every once in a while so an adult home would definitely be best. My hair grows and I do not shed, but I will need to be groomed on a regular basis (approximately every 6-8 weeks) Grooming can run anywhere from $60-120/per groom, so please keep this expense in mind if you are thinking of offering me a furever home.

I am spayed, microchipped, up to date with vaccines and on monthly heartworm and flea prevention, and also just had a fresh dental. I have by bags packed and I’m ready to goooooooooo! All I’m looking for is a loving, patient quieter adult only home to “chillax” in, could that be yours? Are you the home for me? Please submit an application with VIPRescue.org if you can offer me, Bonnie, a fabulous new home.

Belle / Redington Beach

Belle / Redington Beach AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION!!! viprescue.org

DOG NAME: Belle / Redington Beach DOB: 10/5/10 DOG BREED: ShihTzu mix DOG WEIGHT: 11 lbs GENDER: Female HOUSE TRAINED: yes LOCATION: Redington Beach, FL GOOD WITH DOGS: Yes GOOD WITH KIDS: yes, 14+, but prefer adult only home COLOR: Tan and white

Do you have the time, patience and love for a few years to give me the best life I deserve? We’ve all read the sad stories. We’ve all seen the sad eyes. We’ve all seen the photos. Help me be one of the lucky ones, well I already am… since VIP Rescue Director and foster Mom Miss Betsy welcomed me in with open arms. I’m not just one of those stories, I have a name, it’s Belle, and I matter!

I’m a sweet senior gal that was surrendered to a rural shelter with the request to euthanize. ??. They said I had been attacked by an animal and they could not afford the care I needed. The shelter agreed to take me in, but would not euthanize me. Instead, they reached far and wide with a rescue plea, asking if any rescue had space to take me in and get me the medical attention I needed.

Thanks to my new VIP Rescue family, I’m on the road to recovery and every day is a new day, less pain, and more comfort for me. I have lost my sight, and I’ve lost my hearing and I have a burn wound (unknown origin, possibly a chemical burn) on my back that is healing well and my hair is growing back nicely. Through all of this, I haven’t lost my will to live, thanks to my “paw”some foster Mommy taking such good care of me!

I’m smart and I can learn the lay of the land in a short period of time. I enjoy food and sleeping on the soft beds in my foster home..bonus I am potty trained! I just need to be guided on the route needed to get outside so I can do my business. I will learn it in no time and I do let you know when I have to go..

I can have a step or two to get in and out of the home, so I don’t need a fenced yard but a secure location that I can do my business would be helpful. My foster mom can tell you some solutions if you don’t have a fenced yard. I am not too keen on the leash. I prefer to go at my own pace when I’m smelling all the neat smells outside.

I’ve had a recent dental and some lumpy bumps removed. I’m spayed up-to-date on my vaccines, microchipped and am current on my monthly heartworm and flea preventatives.

A note from foster Mom: This sweet girl needs a patient home to live out the rest of her days. It’s unimaginable that somebody could let her get in the condition she has found herself in. One day at a time, and Belle deserves the best.

All she’s looking for is patience, love, and a warm lap to curl up on. Is that you? Are you the home for her? An adult only home with someone who is home more often than not is preferred.

Please submit an application with VIPRescue.org if you can offer this sweet girl the best loving home.

Adoption Requirements: You must be a Florida resident, and be at least 25 years of age to adopt.

Lily / Largo

Lily/Largo Available for adoption!! viprescue.org

DOG NAME: Lily DOB:  7/11/2018 DOG BREED: Chihuahua mix GENDER:  Female HOUSE TRAINED:  Yes LOCATION:  Largo GOOD WITH KIDS: 12+ respectful GOOD WITH DOGS: some, no big dogs. *could be your one and only *If you have a current pup a meet and greet with pup will be required. GOOD WITH CATS: unknown COLOR: Cream FENCED YARD: Secure fenced yard required.

Hello everyone!  My name is Lily (AKA wiggle butt) because I am so happy to see you, even if I've seen you all day!!!  Are you looking for a new best friend?  I am a 7 lb, 5 yo chihuahua mix gal who loves snuggles, laps, kisses and more snuggles! Your lap or your arms are my favorite place to be as I will follow you everywhere. I will go outside to do my business, but you have to come with me because it’s a scary world out there and I’m a scaredy cat (um…dog). My mom takes me for walks with the other dogs here, but I haven't figured out if I'm a fan of the whole experience, I just don't understand this leash business. In the last week I've been venturing out to sniff with the other dogs, but then I run right back to moms feet. It’s going to take a while for me to get totally comfortable in a new place. I do like to explore the backyard, but I like to check in constantly to make sure mom is watching.  A fenced yard is required. I don't mind being in a crate for short periods of time, and my mom leaves us free and I'm good with that too.  I wouldn't like it if you left me alone for long periods of time, I’m just not the kind of doggie who likes to be alone much, I want to be with you as much as I can. I really need to be in a home where someone is home more often than not, k? A fenced yard is required.

I came from a place with lots and lots of dogs.  I get very scared when new dogs come near me, and for the first few days I was here, my mom had to feed me on the counter away from everybody because I was too afraid to eat.  If any of the other dogs came near me, I would abandon my bowl. I think that’s because of where I came from, huh?My mom can put my bowl on the floor now, but stands near me so I'm comfortable.  I think I would love to be your one and only, but If you already have a really low key dog, that may be ok; as long as you give me time to warm up to them.  I'm not good with new experiences, but once I'm comfortable you'll see my real personality come out.  If you have other dogs, similar size to me is best.

I’ve been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and am current on my heartworm and flea prevention too! Maybe you wanna meet me? You can go to www.viprescue.org to fill out and adoption application and make sure to put my name on it. I sure hope my “fur” ever family is out there just waiting for a cutie like me!

DOG NAME: Ginger / Redington Beach

DOB: 9/25/13

DOG BREED: Poodle Mix

DOG WEIGHT: 14 lbs

GENDER: Female

HOUSE TRAINED: yes

LOCATION: Redington Beach, FL

GOOD WITH DOGS: Yes – Except around food

GOOD WITH KIDS: yes 12+ respectful – prefer adult home

COLOR: Tan

Hi, my name is Ginger, a sweeter than sugar 15lb. senior poodle mix looking for my forever home. VIP Rescue scooped me up from animal control and is taking care of me like no other.

My foster mom and pups love me, they offered me a soft bed and yummy food. I love food, but I can be a little protective when my foster mom prepares our/my food. Probably has to do with the fact that I came to them a little thin, not sure where my “other” family went. But….I’m safe, loved and cared for now, and VIP promised me they’d find me the bestest family to love me FOREVER.

I would do best as your one and only or If you have a submissive pup, that might work, and a meet and greet would be required to make sure we’d be friends.

I do love my leash walks, a fenced yard is not required although I do enjoy a secure yard to bask in the sun at my leisure if you have one. I’m looking for a quieter adult only home to enjoy my senior years with, just hanging out on the couch, watching TV with you. I’ll adjust just fine and accept a new home/environment.. with minimal changes. You get it.. none of us like to much change at our age and are set in our ways!

A few things about me… I do seek out attention with ear rubs and back scratches. I sleep in an open crate at night and enjoy soft dog beds for naps. oh, umm, I don’t like being carried. Ha! Hope that’s ok!

I’ve been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and started on heartworm and flea prevention. If you think I’m the girl for you please submit an application to www.viprescue.org

Adoption Requirements: You must be a Florida resident, and be at least 25 years of age to adopt.

DOG WEIGHT: 18 lbs

GENDER: Female

LOCATION: St Petersburg, FL

GOOD WITH DOGS: Yes

GOOD WITH KIDS: yes 8+ respectful

COLOR: tan and white

Hi there, my name is Squirt, a 2 year old terrier mix gal who my foster mom calls Ms. Happy, and everyone else I meet calls me Pretty Girl!   I’m just a happy go lucky girl looking for a new family to love me fur ever. I wag my tail when I see my humans, I get sooooo excited to see them! I enjoy it when I get ear rubs, and I do a little dance at meal times. I am housebroken and crate trained, and I like to take my naps in there too. I do well with the “2” legged little humans in my foster home, but I definitely prefer the “ Mom”. I enjoy being petted and to play some ball, that’s really fun. Foster Mom said I do well meeting other dogs, but I also think I’d do well as an only dog and to be your center of attention. I do like exploring with my Foster family, but I prefer the “ quieter” kind of life style for sure.

I’ve been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and am current on my heartworm and flea prevention. If you’d like to meet me, ( which I sure hope you do!) please fill out an adoption application at www.viprescue.org, and the pawsome Volunteers here will take it from there!

Max / Largo

AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION!!!

viprescue.org

Let’s show Max some love by and sharing this post like crazy to help him find his “fur”ever family!!!

DOG NAME:  Max/Largo

DOB:  7/19/2010

DOG BREED: Malti-Poo

DOG WEIGHT:  17 lbs at intake – ***UPDATE 8-26-23 he weight 13.4 lbs – a few more to go.

GENDER:  Male

HOUSE TRAINED:  working on it, as long as he is taken out frequently.

LOCATION:  Largo, FL

GOOD WitH DOGS: Yes

COLOR:  white

Hi everyone, I’m Max!  I am an 13 years young 17 pound at intake (***UPDATE 8-26-23 he weight 13.4 lbs – a few more to go) malti-poo, and I hope it’s gonna be a LUCKY 13 where I get my new “hooman” “fur” ever home soon, wouldn’t that be “paw”some!

I recently came to VIP Rescue when my family moved away and couldn’t take me with them. The great folks here didn’t hesitate to take me under their wing. First stop was the dog-tor for a checkup. I had a dental cleaning and had a bump on the side of my mouth removed. It never seemed to bother me and it definitely didn’t stop me from eating! I was panting quite a bit, (heck, I was nervous with all these new faces around!) but Doc said there was no sign of any heart disease or murmur, and likely caused by my “Wittle chubbie” self and it should get better after I’ve lost a few pounds and maybe, just maybe, I can do a little more walking when it’s not so hot out!

Other than a quarterly cytopoint injection for my allergies, I am very healthy boy!   I have beautiful curly white hair that’ll need to kept groomed, so please keep that in mind if you’re wanting to adopt me. 

Are you looking for a friend who will follow you wherever you go?  I’m very easy going and will find a nice place to nap in whatever room you are in. I do know what to do if you bring me outside, but I won’t tell you I need to go out though, so frequent potty breaks are a must!  Learning a new routine is a lot at my age, but my foster mom says I’m catching on quickly!  I’m not a fan of the outside (it is H.O.T.) so she carries me out to the grass. Then I go stand by the door until she lets me back into the AC. Ha!  I love taking short walks early in the morning, and maybe in the evening, and I will sit nicely while you put my harness on. I bark a little when foster Mom first leaves, and when she comes home, even after a short time away, I am usually asleep somewhere.  This could be because there are other dogs in this house so I’m not really alone. That being said, I get along with the other dogs; though I favor human company.   I DO NOT like to be left alone for long periods of time, so If you’re retired or work from home, that’ll work for me. 

I am neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and on heartworm and flea prevention.  What do you think?  Do I sound like the boy for you?  My foster mom thinks I’m super sweet.  Sometimes I give her ankle kisses just to let her know how happy I am.  

I almost forgot, I know how to play fetch!  I found a little tennis ball in the toy box and we played a short game inside.  I’ve been told I can take the tennis ball with me!  I wasn’t interested in any of the squeaky toys, but I knew just what to do with that ball.  I have the picture to prove it too!!!

Nikki / Redington Beach

Available for adoption!!

viprescue.org

DOG NAME: Nikki/Redington

Beach DOB: 8/16/2013

DOG BREED: Maltipoo

GENDER: Female

HOUSE TRAINED: Peepad trained working on house manners

LOCATION: Redington Beach

GOOD WITH KIDS: 12+ respectful

GOOD WITH DOGS: some, no big dogs. *could be your one and only *If you have a current pup and meet and greet with pup will be required.

GOOD WITH CATS: unknown

COLOR: White and tan

We’d like you to meet our new little sweetheart Nikki. She’s an adorable 5lb. 10 year old Maltipoo who will just melt your heart!

Nikki was surrendered to VIP Rescue from a “poor situation” in which she lived in for quite some time. She barely had any human contact, had to scrounge for her next meal, was very underweight, and terrified of the humans who failed her.

One of our Volunteers went to the “house” where she was “living”, it took some time, but eventually was able to safely get her out, and traveled many miles and hours to bring Nikki to her new foster home who was waiting with open arms to help her start her journey to a new and much better life!

Nikki was given a warm bath and groom, and a much needed healthy meal, and given time and patience to just “chill” to try and learn that not all humans are bad.

She quickly became “tinkle pad” trained, is learning leash walking, and has slowly gained some much needed weight! She absolutely loves snuggles from her foster Mom, sleeps in the human bed at night, and enjoys naps in one of the many doggie beds in her foster home. Nikki even gives occasional “smiles” to her foster as if she’s saying, I’m still very nervous, but thank you for saving me”.

Nikki will need an experienced, quieter adult only home, as she is still nervous of anything that moves fast or loud noises. She’d be ok as an “only child” or if you do have another pup at home, it must be a smaller, laid back, calm and gentle doggie. A meet and greet will be required.

Nikki will need a home where someone is home more often than not, preference will be given to those who are retired or work from home as we feel this is what’s best for her.

She will also require regular grooming, so please keep that expense in mind as well.

Nikki has been spayed, is current on vaccines, microchipped, had a dental, and is on heartworm and flea prevention. We are going to be very particular when choosing her new family, and will only accept applications that meet her needs. We promised her we WILL find her that perfect “fur” ever home that she can relax in and enjoy her senior years with, one that she truly deserves. If you feel you meet ALL of her needs, please visit www.viprescue.org to fill out an adoption application.

DOG NAME: Gigi/Redington Beach
DOB: 7/06/2018
DOG BREED: Chihuahua /Dachshund mix
GENDER: Female
HOUSE TRAINED: Yes
LOCATION: Redington Beach
GOOD WITH KIDS: 8+ respectful
GOOD WITH DOGS: some, no big dogs
*she would do best with another pup in the home
pup will be required.
GOOD WITH CATS: unknown
COLOR: Black and Tan
FENCED YARD: Secured fenced yard required

Who is up for the happiest lil’ girl around??? Well, I’m talking about MEEEEE of course! I’m Gigi and I’m a 5 years young Chihuahua mix gal, weighing in at about 10ish pounds, as I just finished weaning my very last litter of pups, and I can hardly wait to get my slim, trim girly figure back!

I’m looking for my very own furever home. Is that you?? I like to snuggle, go on leash walks, play with toys, and I also like to play a little with the other foster pup in my foster home. I like to be at the front of the line for petting, snuggles and lap time. I would do best with another pup in the home that is laid back and doesn’t mind sharing, that would be ok, but of course we would need to meet first.

I will go outside to do my business, my mom takes me for short walks with the other dogs here, and I get really excited if I see a squirrel or a bird. Hang on tight cuz I will try to chase them! If you have a fenced yard, I do like to explore the backyard, a fenced yard is required. I love to explore new things, so if you take me places I will smile the entire time. I don’t like to be left alone for long periods of time, I’m just not the kind of doggie who likes to be alone much. I want to be with you as much as I can. I really need to be in a home where someone is home more often than not, k?

So, now to talk about the “other” stuff. When I got to VIP, we found out I am heart worm positive, but don’t let that stop you from adopting me! VIP Rescue covers all the expenses for my treatment, but you do need to live within 1 hour of the St Petersburg area to take me to my date-sensitive appointments with the rescue vet for my treatment. I’ll also need to take it slow for a while, no long walks or romping/zoomies in the yard until the vet says it’s ok. My VIP friends will explain everything to you in detail.

I’ve been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and on heartworm and flea prevention.

Maybe you wanna meet me? Please go to www.viprescue.org to fill out and adoption application and make sure to put my name on it. I sure hope my “fur” ever family is out there just waiting for a cutie like me!

ADOPTION REQUIREMENTS: You must be a Florida resident, and be at least 25 years of age to adopt. To qualify for adoption, all of the pets in your home must be spayed or neutered, they must be current on all vaccines, preventatives, and have received consistent veterinary care. If you’ve had more than one Vet in the past 3 years please provide all the names and number for each vet. This breed typically lives 13-16 years, so please keep that lifespan in mind, as your age should be appropriate for the pets estimated lifespan.

DOB 12-01-18

DOG BREED: Mini Pin Mix

DOG WEIGHT: 14 lbs – update 8-21-23-now 12 lbs (3 or 4 more togo)

GENDER: Female

GETS ALONG WITH CATS: Yes

COLOR: Black and Tan

Hi Friends! My name is Betty, and I’m a 4 1/2 year old 14lb. PUPDATE as of 8-21-23 12 lbs (only 3 or 4 more to go) Min Pin mix gal searching for a new start in life. I recently came to VIP when my humans could no longer care for me, but that’s all behind me now because my new friends here promised they would find a super forever family for me!

As you can see, I could stand to lose a “few pounds” so “they” tell me, but I just say there’s more of me to love, right? Ha! But seriously, my foster parents are feeding me properly so I can now shed those extra “pounds”. Enough about that stuff, let’s talk about MEEEEEE!!!!!

I’m a real sweetheart, even been told I’m a snuggle bunny (these humans and their descriptions sure are funny!) I get along well with other doggies and even cats! If you have little humans (ya know, the 2 legged ones?) they should be 10+, k? I’m getting the hang of this potty training stuff, but am still a work in progress, I have learned to use peepads, but I’m sure my new family will help me continue my “training”. I love leash walks and I even prance and run a little bit when we first head out for a walk. Losing some of the extra weight has made me appreciate the hard work it has been getting me back on track to a healthy weight. I do get scared when I hear loud noises, like fireworks and thunder, and I do bark when that happens, so please don’t leave me alone for too long. Ideally, my new family should either work from home, or are retired but please don’t be gone for more than 4 hours at a time, k?

I’ve been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and am current on my heartworm and flea prevention. I am ready to rolllllllll! Let’s go!!!! lol… Do I sound like the gal for you? If so, please visit www.viprescue.org to fill out an adoption application. I really hope to meet you soon! Love and tail wags, Betty a/k/a the “Snuggle Bunny”

My foster mom and dad say that I am such a sweet boy that is the perfect mix of playfulness and calmness. Pretty good with the house training thing as long as I’m taken out enough. I also love snuggles and sleeping in the big bed with my foster mom and dad. I would be a great addition to your family if you are looking for the bestest little boy around.

FENCED YARD: Secure fenced yard required. 

*single family home with attached fenced yard 

PLEASE READ ENTIRE BIO!!

What’s up peeps! My name is “ChaCha” and I’m a 7lb happy,  bouncy and yes, you guessed it, “dancy pants” 1 year old toy poodle mix pup. I just love to dance and play every.time.I.see. you!

First, let’s get the “ugly” stuff of how I got here out of the way, then we can focus on MEEEEEE!

I was found with a rubber bands tied around my snout, and it had been there for quite some time because it was embedded and cut into my muzzle…ouch…The very kind person that found me brought me right to the “Dog”ter so they could give me the medical treatment I needed. After a few weeks, I was healed and am ok now, and I do have a “smiley” face all the time partly due to damage from the cruel thing that happened to me, and partly because I’m so dang happy now I DO smile!

I am one lucky pup because now I’m with the great folks at VIP Rescue who told me I am safe, will be loved and taken care of and they will find me the perfect new family who will love me forever. I can leave all that nasty stuff behind me now.

Foster Mom says I’m a high energy pup who will keep you on your toes for sure. My favorite place to be is wherever you are, I’m a little shy and scared, but, who can blame me? I do go outside to do my business, but “Mom” needs to come with me because I get nervous. There’s other little doggies here at my foster home, and we go for walks and I get to do all kinds of “sniffys “ along our walk! I love playing in the yard and doing “zoomies” and it also kinda burns off some of my energy. I will require a secured fenced in yard, (no exceptions) and since I don’t like to be left alone for long periods of time, I’ll need a family that’s home more often than not, my preference would be someone who works from home. I could be your one and only, but if you do have a really low key submissive similar sized pupper already, we’d have to meet to make sure we get along, k?

I’ve been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and am on heartworm and flea prevention as well. If you think you’re the family for me, (remember you MUST be active to keep up with me!) please visit www.viprescue.org and put my name, ChaCha on the application!  Hope to meet you soon! 

Applications that don’t meet my requirements will be not be processed and will be closed. 

Please visit www.viprescue.org to fill out an adoption application for me (might be the best decision of your life!) 

Any incomplete application will NOT be processed. You should also call your Veterinarian’s office and give your permission for us to speak with them to gather the necessary information we need to process any applications. Failure to do so will result in your application being closed. 

Standard Adoption Requirements: You must be a resident of FL., and be at least 25 years of age.  This breed typically lives 14-18 years, so keep his lifespan in mind if you are thinking of adopting. Your age should be appropriate for ChaChas estimated lifespan.

Hi there, my name is Nick, and I’m a 5 1/2 year old 15lb “scruffy terrier” type boy! My foster Mom and Dad say I’m one of the sweetest, most well mannered fosters they’ve ever had! I have lots of love to give to my new family, and I’m just the right size for snuggles. I’m pretty great at the potty outside thing as long as you let me out often. I’m very calm and respectful of the other pups in my foster home, and would really prefer to have another doggie of similar size in my new home. I love toys. I’ll give you kisses if you want them, and, Oh, I LOVE to catch water coming out of the hose! Ha! I do like sleeping in the “hooman” bed, but am also quite content in my doggie bed. I’m truly a gem.

SNITCH / TAVARES, FLORIDA

ADOPT SNITCH / Tavares, Florida www.viprescue.org

DOB: 6/3/2022 Breed: Miniature Poodle Weight: 18 lbs. Gender: Male House trained: Yes Location: Tavares, FL Color: Gray / White Gets along with cats: Unknown Gets along with Dogs: Yes – he wants to play non-stop.

ADOPTION RESTRICTIONS: -You must be a resident of FL -Requires a fenced yard in a single-family home. -No children under 12, no renters.

Wow, wait till you meet this busy boy! SNITCH just came into Rescue, and boy oh boy, he is a real charmer. He’s 13 months old, weighs in at 18 lbs. and is a healthy and happy Miniature Poodle! SNITCH is an “extremely” active puppy with typical puppy behaviors and energy. He’ll be looking for an active family to keep up with all his antics, to go on leash walks with him, and play fetch in the yard. He is very food and toy driven, so he is easy to manage. If there is another dog in the adopters home that likes to play non-stop, he would love to have someone to run and chase and play. However, he could also be a one and only pup as he craves your attention. He can be a good snuggle buddy too! You can take Snitch with you, he is a good passenger in the car. He knows some commands, but needs more practice. He tends to be mouthy with hands and we recommend training with his new family to curb this habit.

SNITCH requires a fenced yard. If there are kids in the home, they should be at least 12 years old. He is used to being crated when he cannot be supervised, and will go into his crate easily and readily. He loves toys, and wants you to engage and interact with him. He does not have an off switch – so don’t waste your time looking for it. If you are gone a lot of hours, he’s not the guy for you. SNITCH came to us not house trained. His foster home has worked with him and he is now potty-trained there. He lets you know he has to go while standing by the back door, and you must pay attention and act fast. Once he understands his environment, and knows where to go, he does well. A new home will take a few days for him to become acclimated. SNITCH will require monthly grooming and frequent brushing, so please keep that expense and commitment in mind if you’re considering Snitch. Grooms range from $50-$150.

SNITCH is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm negative, and current on heartworm and flea prevention. His bags are packed, and he’s ready to move into his “fur”ever home!

DOG NAME:  Nora/Redington Beach

DOG WEIGHT:  6 lbs

GENDER: Female

HOUSE TRAINED:  Mostly, working hard at it.

LOCATION:  Redington Beach 

GOOD WITH DOGS: Yes 

GOOD WITH CATS: unknown

COLOR:  White 

Hello Florida! My name is Nora, an adorably sweet 6lb.,10 years young Maltese girl. I love to hang out in the A/C, who knew Florida could be so hot? I do like to go for short walks when it is cool outside, then when I come in from my walk, I’d love to sit in your lap and get belly rubs! Or…..I’ll nap in my own doggie bed like a good girl!

I would love to have a human or 2 in my new family, If you have a doggie I am ok with similar sized pup(s), I don’t know if I would be ok with a cat. If you have the 2 legged kiddos, I’m thinking maybe 12+ would be ok.  I am a totally laid back lady and prefer a quieter home. I do have some medical issued that VIP Rescue has under control and I will need some medicine daily. I do have dry eye and get ointment twice daily and I have a little bit of a heart murmur and get some yummy meds to help me so it doesn’t get worse or affect my activity. My foster mom can tell you all about that if you are interested in taking me home, and honestly, it’s not a big deal at all.

I seem to be mostly house trained ( I’m still perfecting it) and I’ve used the pee pads inside and go outside when prompted. Of course I’m going to need to get into a routine in my new home, but I’m sure with your help I’ll have it down pat in no time!

I’ve been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and am on my heartworm and flea prevention and also had a recent dental.  Might I be the gal for you? Please visit www.viprescue.org to fill out an adoption application. Hope to meet you very soon!

DOB:  2/01/2022 DOG

BREED: Parsons Terrier/Terrier mix

DOG WEIGHT:  18 lbs GENDER: 

Male HOUSE TRAINED:  Almost – As log as he is let out often

LOCATION:  Redington Beach

GOOD WITH DOGS: Yes

GOOD WITH CATS: unknown

COLOR:  White/Grey/Brown

Single Family home: no apartments, no townhome, no duplexes.

Hi name is Levi, an adorably sweet 18lb.,1 and 1/2 year old Parsons Terrier/Terrier mix. My foster mom says I’m the cutest guy with a crazy over bite, she says it gives me character! (silly Mommy)  I haven’t had a great start to life, I have been bounced around a little to much in my short life. I have some separation anxiety, and with that being said, I need a home where there is a human home most, if not all of the time and I really need a furry playmate in my new home. That’s not asking too much is it?  I love to play, wrestle and do zoomies!  I love to go for walks when it is cool outside, and then come in for some belly rubs! I really like playing with my toys and just about everything else except being separated from my human.  Until I get settled in I will be with you wherever you go, so don’t go get the mail without me or close a door with me on the other side.  

I would love to have a human or 2 (or more) for my new family, you also need to have a doggie or 2 or 3, either bigger or smaller, just as long as we can play!  I don’t know if I would be ok with a cat, with my energy, it would have to be a playful cat. If you have kids they should be maybe 8+ I think that would be ok. If you are on the go and I can go with you that would be ok too. If I get separated from you, I bark and talk so you can find me again. I would need a single family home preferably with a fenced in yard. No apartments, condos, townhomes or duplexes, cuz, like I said, I like to “talk” when I can’t be with you!  My foster mom can tell you all about my separation anxiety if you are interested in taking me home. If I don’t sound like the boy for you, please view the other adoptable pups on our website Viprescue.org.

I seem to be mostly house trained, I just need to get out often and of course I’m going to need to get into a routine in my new home, but I’m getting there! 

I’ve been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and am on my heartworm and flea prevention. Might I be the guy for you? Please visit www.viprescue.org to fill out an adoption application. Hope to meet you very soon!

Hi everyone, my name is Mary, a 3 year old 18lb terrier mix gal who is a very friendly, high energy girl. As you can see, I’m an attractive young lady if I do say so myself, and have the happiest of tails and a great easy going personality. I get along with other dogs and quickly became a central part of the pack, I really love everyone, including kids, and would love to be in a house with other dogs and kids, I think I even get along with the “feline” type! A little secret about me….shhhhhh…Kisses are one of my specialties! Just give me room to run and I’ll be good; a big backyard with a 6 foot fence and I’ll be in doggie heaven. Did I mention that I have “lots” of energy?? Ha! I’ll definitely need an active family to keep up with me!

I quickly learned the dog doors, but am still working on my “potty training” as my foster Mom calls it. I’m very curious too, and maybe a little nosy as I try to participate in everything and I mean everything! “Mom” says I’m a good girl on the leash and enjoy a short walk when it’s not so hot out.

I’ve been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and am on heartworm and flea prevention.

If you want to meet me please fill out an application at viprescue.org and the great folks there will take over. I look forward to meeting you and am sure you’ll fall in love with me.

BREED: Terrier Mix DOG

WEIGHT:  16 lbs

GENDER: Female

HOUSE TRAINED:  Mostly, working had at it.

LOCATION:  Citrus Park

GOOD WITH DOGS: Yes

GOOD WITH CATS: No

COLOR:  Tri color, white, black and brown

FENCED YARD: Required

Hi peeps, My name is Marshmallow, an adorably sweet 16lb.,1 1/2 year old terrier mix girl. Do you like kisses? I LOVE to give kisses. I also love to sit in your lap and get belly rubs, which leads to more kisses!

I would love to have some friends to play with in my new family, either doggie friends or human friends (I like to chase the kitties if they run, so I’d be better with just doggies or human friends) I have a lot of puppy energy and I really would like playmates. Another pup similar in size in my new home would be really cool! I need a big fenced yard to run around in to burn off some of this energy in me!  I love to sleep next to my human (or on them) in the “big bed” or in my own doggie bed.

I seem to be mostly house trained ( I’m still perfecting it) and I’ve used the pee pads inside and go outside. Of course I’m going to need to get into a routine in my new home, but I have a head start.

I’ve been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and am on my heartworm and flea prevention. Might I be the gal for you? Please visit www.viprescue.org to fill out an adoption application. Hope to meet you very soon!

Let’s show Max some love by wishing him a very Happy Birthday and sharing this post like crazy to help him find his “fur”ever family!!!

DOG NAME:  Max/Largo

DOB:  7/19/2010

DOG BREED: Malti-Poo

DOG WEIGHT:  17 lbs -intake weight – ***AS of 8-26-23 he is 13.4 – Yahoo!! – a few more to go.

GENDER:  Male

HOUSE TRAINED:  working on it

LOCATION:  Largo, FL

GOOD WITH DOGS: Yes COLOR:  white

Hi everyone, I’m Max!  I am an (almost) 13 years young 17 pound malti-poo at intake – as of 8-26-23 he is down to 13.4, A few more to go… and guess what! Today, Wednesday, is MY BIRTHDAY!!! I hope it’s gonna be a LUCKY 13 day where I get my new “hooman” “fur” ever home, wouldn’t that be “paw”some!

I recently came to VIP Rescue when my family moved away and couldn’t take me with them. The great folks here didn’t hesitate to take me under their wing. First stop was the dog-tor for a checkup. I had a dental cleaning and had a bump on the side of my mouth removed. It never seemed to bother me and it definitely didn’t stop me from eating! I was panting quite a bit, (heck, I was nervous with all these new faces around!) but Doc said there was no sign of any heart disease or murmur, and likely caused by my “Wittle chubbie” self and it should get better after I’ve lost a few pounds and maybe, just maybe, I can do a little more walking when it’s not so hot out!

Other than a quarterly cytopoint injection for my allergies, I am very healthy boy!   I have beautiful curly white hair that’ll need to kept groomed, so please keep that in mind if you’re wanting to adopt me. 

Are you looking for a friend who will follow you wherever you go?  I’m very easy going and will find a nice place to nap in whatever room you are in. I do know what to do if you bring me outside, but I won’t tell you I need to go out though, so frequent potty breaks are a must!  Learning a new routine is a lot at my age, but my foster mom says I’m catching on quickly!  I’m not a fan of the outside (it is H.O.T.) so she carries me out to the grass. Then I go stand by the door until she lets me back into the AC. Ha!  I love taking short walks early in the morning, and maybe in the evening, and I will sit nicely while you put my harness on. I bark a little when foster Mom first leaves, and when she comes home, even after a short time away, I am usually asleep somewhere.  This could be because there are other dogs in this house so I’m not really alone. That being said, I get along with the other dogs; though I favor human company.   I DO NOT like to be left alone for long periods of time, so If you’re retired or work from home, that’ll work for me. 

I am neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and on heartworm and flea prevention.  What do you think?  Do I sound like the boy for you?  My foster mom thinks I’m super sweet.  Sometimes I give her ankle kisses just to let her know how happy I am.  

I almost forgot, I know how to play fetch!  I found a little tennis ball in the toy box and we played a short game inside.  I’ve been told I can take the tennis ball with me!  I wasn’t interested in any of the squeaky toys, but I knew just what to do with that ball.  I have the picture to prove it too!!!

VIP RESCUE: www.viprescue.org

DOG NAME: Georgia

DOB 6-27-22 DOG

BREED: Shihtzu/Maltese

DOG WEIGHT: 12 lbs

GENDER: Female

HOUSE TRAINED: Almost, when you get her out frequently and she needs a little time once she is out on the leash.

LOCATION: Indian Rocks Beach. FL

COLOR: Cream

Hi friends, it’s me, Georgia! I’m an active and very playful 1 year old 12lb shih tzu/maltese mix little girl.

My foster mom says I am one of the most affectionate and easy going dogs she has ever fostered!! I love snuggles & cuddles, play time, toys, walk time, car rides and am very social with everyone I have met in my adventures.

When I first got here, we had to do a little practice with me getting used to going potty while walking on a leash. I’ve pretty much got the hang of that now, just be sure to not rush me, give me time to do the “sniffies” to find the perfect spot to do my business and we’ll be good. I have very good leash manners and am an easy dog to walk. If you take me out regularly and often until we get to know each others routines, I’ll have this “housebroken” thing down pat in no time!

My hair is kinda short right now, I had to get shaved when I got here because I was so matted and quite a hot mess. My hair will grow back, so keep that in mind because I’ll need regular grooming to keep me looking my very best!

I absolutely love other friendly and playful dogs similar in size to me. (no big doggies please) playing and sharing toys and beds with my doggie friends is good, but my favorite thing is to do with my friends is zoomies and wrestle. I could be an only dog, so long as you are my playmate and you have friends with dogs that I could play with too. Or, I could join a home with an already established friendly, similar size pup (which I definitely prefer). I don’t want to be left alone for long periods of time, so if you work full time outside the home, I’m just not the pup for you, but please take a look at the other doggie’s available for adoption here at VIP.

I’ve been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and am current on my heartworm and flea prevention. Does it sound like we could be each others forever? I’m ready to find my “fur”ever home! Please visit www.viprescue.org to fill out an adoption application

DOG BREED: Mini Pin Mix

DOG WEIGHT: 14 lbs

GENDER: Female

HOUSE TRAINED: Almost, as long as she is let out enough

LOCATION: Holiday. FL

COLOR: Black and Tan

Hi Friends! My name is Betty, and I’m a 4 1/2 year old 14lb. Min Pin mix gal searching for a new start in life. I recently came to VIP when my humans could no longer care for me, but that’s all behind me now because my new friends here promised they would find a super forever family for me!

As you can see, I could stand to lose a “few pounds” so “they” tell me, but I just say there’s more of me to love, right? Ha! But seriously, my foster parents are feeding me properly so I can now shed those extra “pounds”. Enough about that stuff, let’s talk about MEEEEEE!!!!!

I’m a real sweetheart, even been told I’m a snuggle bunny (these humans and their descriptions sure are funny!) I get along well with other doggies and even cats! If you have little humans (ya know, the 2 legged ones?) they should be 10+, k? I’m getting the hang of this potty training stuff, but am still a work in progress, but I’m sure my new family will help me continue my “training”. I do get scared when I hear loud noises, like fireworks and thunder, and I do bark when that happens, so please don’t leave me alone for too long. Ideally, my new family should either work from home, or are retired but please don’t be gone for more than 4 hours at a time, k?

I’ve been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and am current on my heartworm and flea prevention. I am ready to rolllllllll! Let’s go!!!! lol… Do I sound like the gal for you? If so, please visit www.viprescue.org to fill out an adoption application. I really hope to meet you soon! Love and tail wags, Betty a/k/a the “Snuggle Bunny”

Miso/Redington Beach

Miso/Redington Beach

DOB: 12/15/2022

Breed: Brenadoodle mix

Weight : 19 lbs current weight

Gender: Male

House trained: Yes, as long as I get out often.

Location: Redington Beach FL

Color: Gray / White

Gets along with cats: NO

Gets along with Dogs : Yes – similar sized or larger

ADOPTION RESTRICTIONS:

-You must be a resident of FL

-Requires a 6-foot fenced yard in a single-family home.

-No children under 12, no renters

Wow, wait til you hear about this boy! Miso just came into Rescue, and boy oh boy, is he a handsome dude! He’s a 7 month old, 19 lb. (current weight) Benradoodle mix maybe Sheepdog mix? Sheepdoodle…The guesses continue! lol….Miso is an “extremely” active puppy with typical puppy behavior and energy. He’ll be looking for an active family (no couch potatoes for this boy) to keep up with all his antics, another pup his size or a bit bigger in the home would be a good idea, so he’ll have a friend to play with and learn to be a dog . He’ll also need a family that will continue working with his puppy training (including house manners) so he can grow up to be the best boy ever.

Miso requires a family who owns their own single family home (sorry, no rentals for Miso) with a 6 ft secured fenced in yard. If there are kids in the home, they should be at least 12+. He’ll also require someone to be home most of the time, as he does have some separation issues, so if you work part time (no more than 4 hours a day total) or work from home, that is definitely preferred, If you are gone a lot, he’s not the guy for you. Best guess is he’ll be “roughly” 30-40 lbs full grown, possibly bigger, so if you’re looking for a “little” please look at our other dog’s available for adoption. Miso will require regular grooming, so keep that in mind if you’re interested in him. Miso is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and current on heartworm and flea prevention, his bags are packed, and he’s ready to move into his “fur”ever home!

Hi everyone! My name is Solo, a 7 pound whirlwind of activity. I’m fully grown, but still have tons of puppy energy. I was originally found as a stray with no ID and no one came forward to claim me 🙁 but thankfully I got to come to VIP Rescue and now have an amazing foster home and the opportunity to find my forever home!

As I said, I have a lot of energy. I want to investigate everything, and I’ll follow you wherever you go. I love playing with my foster “sister” and going with her to “investigate” the backyard. Once I’m done playing, I want to curl up on my humans lap and nap, as I LOVE to snuggle. I’m still trying to learn this housebreaking thing, kinda like a work in progress you might say as I’m still working on inside vs. outside behavior, and my foster siblings are helping me with that! I love going for walks! I get so excited, I spin in circles and try to run, run, run! Sometimes I try to run so fast, I end up hopping like a kangaroo to try to go, go, go. I’ll definitely need to wear a very secure harness to go on walks, just because I love to run! You’ll have to protect me from myself, I don’t want to be a street dog again, that’s no life for a great fella like me! I really need a fenced in backyard and maybe a home with another small, high energy dog to play with. I do not like when my foster mom leaves the house, even for a short time. I have to wear belly bands because I get nervous. Even if you let me out before you leave, I can’t help myself. This may improve as I get more confident and secure now that I’m safe. I would not do good with a family who is gone all day, if you work from home or work just a few hours, that should be ok, but if you’re gone all day, I’m definitely not the pup for you. I must have an active energetic family too, cuz, again, I’ve got the most puppy energy Mom has seen in a while! I do NOT like being crated, I cry horribly. Though I sometimes like to take a nap in a crate, I want the door to remain open.

When I first got here, I kept getting an upset tummy. Mom changed my food to a smaller kibble sensitive stomach food and it seemed to help. I gobble down my food and any other food that I can find. (probably cuz I learned to survive on what I could on the streets) With my sensitive stomach, it is best not to give me a broad range of food or allow me to steal others food (I totally will) For now, easy to swallow and easy to digest is best. I love chewing on the bones Mom has all over. However, I want to hoard them, It doesn’t matter how many I have, I want the one the other dogs are chewing on! I will engage in distraction and stealth maneuvers to steal from the dogs and build my hoard. I protect my hoard like Scrooge McDuck protects his gold. Only from other dogs though, Mom can take the bones away from me without any issue, then I sit and wait to steal them back, Ha!

I am neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and am current on heartworm and flea prevention. Do you think I am the dog for you!? If so, please complete an application at VIPRescue.org. I can’t wait to find my “fur”ever home!!

Adoption Requirements: You must be a resident of Fl, live in and own a single family home, and be at least 25+ years old.

Hi there everyone, I’m Hattie, a 15 lb. 2 year old adorable Min Pin/terrier/doxie mix, or who knows, it really doesn’t matter, because I’m cute, bubbly, and pretty attractive if I do say so myself! Ha! I recently came to this great State of Florida with some friends, so we can have a much better life. Yeah!

I’m doing good with this “housebreaking” thing they talk about, and most of the time I know when I have to go outside. It’s just that sometimes I forget in my excitement, so you’ll need to help me continue my “training” and I should have it down pat in no time! Sometimes I get soooooooo excited I have to be reminded to just “chill” a bit. Got tons of energy I guess, so I’ll definitely need an active family, no couch potatoes for me, and a fenced in yard would be great too. I’m good on a leash, and I really do like my toys. Since I like to play and get along with other dogs, another similar sized doggie in the home would be best for me. Cats, maybe? I haven’t met any yet, so I’m not sure about that, maybe I should just stick to the doggies, huh? Older respectful kids should be no problem, actually, since I’m so playful I think I’d really like to have some “kid” siblings, as long as they aren’t too young, say 13+? I do have a touch of anxiety, like loud sudden noises and things like “thunder” really startle me, so the more people around me the better, right? My ideal family won’t leave me alone for too long, (ya know, that “anxiety” stuff) so if you work from home, or work part time that’d be good. If everybody works full time outside the home, then I’m just not the girl for you.

I’m current on all my vaccines, spayed, microchipped and on heartworm and flea prevention. Could you be the one to make my dreams come true? My “fur” ever family? If you think so, please complete an application at VIPRescue.org and the great people there will begin the process. I can’t wait to meet you!

ADOPTION REQUIREMENTS: You must be a resident of Fl, and live in a single family home, sorry no rentals, and be at least 25+ years old.

Princess Hope / Lutz, FL

Dog Name: Princess Hope / Lutz DOB: 04/15/2013 Breed: Yorkshire Terrier mix Weight : 12 lbs Gender: Female House trained: Yes, when let out often Location: Lutz, Fl Gets along with cats: Unknown Gets along with Dogs : Yes – but needs to be only pup in home.

Princess has been so easy to foster! Once we broke through the language “barker”, she is very clear when she needs something. A few barks to let us know she is either hungry, has to go out or lonely.

She walks great on a leash, loves tummy rubs and is such a happy little girl.

Her hair is growing back nicely, she doesn’t fuss when getting her bath or her eye ointment.

She is going to make a someone a lucky pet parent!

Hi friends, my name is Princess Hope! I’m a 10 years young, (I act like I’m 6, heeeheee) Yorkshire Terrier, maybe Norfolk Terrier mix gal who weighs about 12 lbs. When I got here to VIP Rescue, I needed some much needed TLC and Vet care, which, of course, I got! I was a bit of a hot mess. My skin was itchy and I had lost most of my hair and my sight is not the best, but you betcha I can hear everything! If you call my name I come trotting to you. I am a pro at the leash, and am working on walks with my foster siblings that are making me feel welcome. I have love leash walks as I have been getting a lot of practice the past few weeks. I get medicated baths every week to 10 days to help my skin and hair recover. See my update photos, I am getting my hair back!!! Foster Mommy gives me yummy food. If you can see past the wrinkles and sparse hair, I’m a beautiful, sweet, happy, loving little girl, busy girl.

My favorite thing is to sleep on the back of my foster moms chair while she works from home. I love sniffy walks, going new places, treats, and of course, companionship and attention. I will require regularly medicated baths until my beautiful locks return and then scheduled grooming appointments (as mentioned when my hair grows back :-), so please consider the extra cost of that prior to submitting your application. If you cannot afford and are not willing to have me professionally groomed on a regular basis, like every 8-10 weeks, I am not the dog for you. Please consider one of my fellow short haired, non grooming required rescue friends instead.

I get along great with other friendly dogs, and I love most everyone that I have met! I would do best as an only dog, I need a home were you spend LOTS of time with me, as I do not want to be at home by myself for extended hours. If you work full time outside of the home, I’m really not the pup for you. Keep me on regular potty schedule and I’m pretty much housebroken. When my foster mom and siblings wake up, my foster mom gets me outside first thing and this has helped start everyday on the right track. I love to be outside and sun myself, but not too much until my hair is grown back and only when it’s cool outside, k?

I am spayed, up to date on my vaccinations, microchipped, and on flea and heartworm prevention. Oh, and I also had a dental at the “dog”ter! if you think you might be the family for me, please submit your application for review at VIPRescue.org

IMANI and CARMELLA: Both these gorgeous girls came to VIP Rescue from the same home, they are bonded, and would like to be adopted together. Carmella is 7 yrs old, and Imani’s is 5 years old. Carmella is Imani’s Aunt and they have always been together. These girls are well trained, sweet, polite, and affectionate. They are everything you could hope for. They are very happy joyful kids, full of love and life, and just waiting for their new home with open paws. Both are very smart, they know commands, are good leash walking, are house-trained, and enjoy play time. They love riding in the car, they have a lot of energy to burn – they are not couch potatoes. If you are a hiker or a jogger that likes to get out and go, you can take them with. They are good with older children and other dogs and cats. They would love some toys to keep them busy. They are calm and entertain one another. Imani and Carmella will sleep in your bed if you invite them. They learn quickly, and they aim to please. Imani and Carmella are ready to begin their journey with a family of their very own that can keep up with them, and entertain them. If you are ready for a pair of highly intelligent well-mannered pups, look no further. They will be dedicated devoted companions to the end……. They are great with other dogs and even a mean cat.

HISTORY: Imani and Carmella have led a wonderful life. Their former owner was unable to keep them due to working many long hours and long shifts as a nurse. She asked VIP Rescue to find them a loving caring home together.

MEETING CARMELLA AND IMANI: The two dogs are fostered in Myakka City, FL. and will be adopted to a home within a reasonable distance. You will need to travel to Myakka City to meet them if your application is approved. You will need to bring all your family members and pets for the introduction meeting.

STANDARD POODLE BREED: Standard Poodles are highly intelligent. They require abundant exercise in your fenced yard, leash walks, patience, and mental stimulation on your family’s part. Please do your homework on the Standard Poodles breed, they are not for everyone. They are high energy, have a high-prey drive, and require a grassy yard to exercise in that is secured on all 4 sides. Standard Poodles are eager to learn, they are athletic, agile, wickedly smart, and are very versatile velcro dogs. They want to be an active participant in your daily life. High quality food is essential and not cheap. Standard Poodles require monthly grooming, and frequent brushing. Grooming ranges from $100-$200 for each dog. They love being around people and are able to form bonds with each member of the family, as opposed to bonding with just one person. They also make superb watchdogs barking zealously when strangers approach the home. Poodles may look dainty and demur, but in truth, these are high-stamina dogs with a stellar range of skills.

MEDICAL: Imani and Carmella have been spayed, they are up to date on vaccines, preventatives, they are microchipped, and heartworm negative. We are not aware of any health issues.

What a pretty little senior girl we have for adoption! Sweet Tricia is an 11 year old Shih tzu mix gal who weighs just 11.8 lbs. When Tricia came to us, she wasn’t in the best shape, and from the looks of her she was most likely used for breeding. That has all changed now, and with your help, love and patience, let’s give her a great life. She was severely matted upon intake, and needed a dental, a spay, a hernia repair and a skin tag removed. Wow… Tricia got all that and more. Spa day was first, we did our best to keep as much of her beautiful hair as we could and got rid of the nasty matted mess she accumulated. The places where she got the short hair cut will grow back and match up with the rest of her coat in no time. She got a “paw”dicure which she desperately needed and a cute little bow when the groom and bath were completed. Next it was a trip to the “dog”ter, where she started with a dental (a few teeth needed to be removed (actually one fell out on its own, ugh. 🙁 then the spay, hernia repair and last but not least the lumpy bump removed. She is now on the road to recovery and most definitely a better life!

Tricia loves to sleep in the human bed, doggy bed(s) or anywhere soft she can find. She is house trained when let out frequently, and enjoys her walks. She doesn’t care to be left alone for long periods of time, so if you are retired or work from home that would be ideal. Don’t let the age fool you, she is an active spooky girl, 11 years old going on 6years old. LOL. She is looking for an family that will keep up with her.

Tricia loves other pups and would do well with a similar sized pup in the home, she is also good with a kitty sibling .

Tricia is spayed, up to date on her vaccines, had a fresh dental, is microchipped and current on her flea and heartworm prevention.

If you think you might be the family for her, please submit your application for review at VIPRescue.org.

ADOPTION REQUIREMENTS: You must be a Florida resident, and to qualify for adoption, all of the pets in your home must be spayed or neutered, current on vaccines, preventatives, and have received consistent veterinary care.

Hi friends, my name is Louie! Louie in Largo, hehe that rhymes! I’m an 11 year young Poodle/Chihuahua mix, and a smiley happy playful guy who weighs about 16 pounds. I have one ear that has a mind of its own, ha! It is usually standing up for attention. A little about my background, I was originally adopted from VIP Rescue in 2012 when I was just a wee puppy, and due to circumstances beyond my control, my family had to surrender me back to VIP Rescue.

I am a laid back, easy going, kinda guy. I love to snuggle and cuddle and go for short walks or hang out in a fenced yard if you have one. It was discovered last year when I was taken to the “dog”ter for a dental cleaning that I have a heart murmur. I am on medicine that I take 2 times daily to help me stay healthy. I do have a little cough when I get excited, this is one of the symptoms with the heart murmur. The doctor said it is nothing to worry about.

My favorite thing is to eat, I need some help with portion control as I am a little overweight. I love sniffy walks, going new places, treats, and of course, companionship and attention. I have hair and it grows and will require grooming and maintenance. Please keep this in mind when considering me for adoption. I am potty trained as long as I get out frequently.

I get along great with other friendly dogs and cats, and I love most everyone that I have met! I would do well in a home with another little dog that is friendly and well socialized or I could also be an only dog, as long as you spend LOTS of time with me, as I do not want to be at home by myself for extended hours. If you work full time outside of the home, I’m really not the pup for you.

I’m neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and current on my heartworm and flea prevention.

ADOPTION REQUIREMENTS: You must be a resident of FL. live in a single family home, sorry no rentals at this time and be at least 25 years of age.
