Stretch/Indian Rocks Beach

Stretch/Indian Rocks Beach
Available for adoption!!

Hi friends! My name is Stretch. 

I recently came to Florida with a bunch of dog friends. We took a long road trip from Louisana to get out of the way of the hurricane. First off, I want to thank all of the helpful rescue humans that got me safely from the shelter in Louisana to my foster home with VIP Rescue. I am now rested up and in search of my forever home!! 

I am approximately 1 years old and weigh 17lbs. They say I am a Corgi/Dachshund/Terrier mix.  They also say I am cute, affectionate, friendly, feisty and energetic. 

So far, so good my foster mom says with the housebreaking. I’ve only been here a week and I’m still getting into a routine. She has potty papers down for her dogs and I use those sometimes, but I’m really liking the outdoor potty times. 

What I would really like is to chase a bicycle or a jogger, or even a golf cart, but foster mom says that is not safe so we are working on my reactivity to those things while I’m outside on leash. Although I walk well on the leash, I bark loud and pull when I see these things. Foster mom distracts me, sometimes with a treat, and we move along. She says I need more practice ignoring these fast moving things but that I’ve got potential. I still say let me at ‘em!! 

I am a young, energetic dog. If you don’t have a safe contained area for me to run, I will need some nice daily walks to get my steps in, my energy out, as well as ample sniff & smell time. 

I get along great with other dogs, just properly introduce us. It would be nice to have some dog friends in my future, but they don’t have to live with us. I share toys, I play with toys. Did I say ToYs? I love toys!!! 

Liking my vibe? Let’s meet! If you have a dog, you need to plan to bring it with you for a meet & greet. I’m ready to go home!! 

Stretch has been neutered, microchipped, is up to date on his vaccinations and is on heartworm and flea prevention. Interested in adopting Stretch? Please submit your application now at
