Dogs in Foster Homes
Oliver
Breed:American Bulldog (Mix)
Color:White/Brown/Black
Sex:Male
Age:3 yrs 6 months
Weight:67 lbs
Fur:Short
  • My story: Hi my name is Oliver and I am a three year old Big Lover boy! I was found wandering around town...and I was very skinny (only 37 lbs) and the local shelter took me in and helped me start re-gaining weight. I currently weight 67 pounds now...and I am a good looking chubby boy! My other pictures are from when I was underweight. I also was having a problem with a skin rash...but I went to see the nice vet and he has me all cleared up! The shelter was full...and these nice people from St. Francis came and got me...because they saw my friendly personality! I am crate trained and I showed them how someone taught me how to sit up and beg, shake with either paw, sit and down! I am quite the smart big boy! I also love to give you a hug by jumping up and clasping your arm between my paws. My rescuer doesn't understand how my former owners didn't come to find me when I got lost...as I am such a big love! Oh and I can replace your washcloth...I will lick your face clean with my kisses! I am currently being fostered with a pack of eight dogs of all sizes...so I am very social. My only faults...I have a prey drive...which means I chase lizards outside...and those furry kitties...so if you have one...I am not the boy for you. Sorry I can't help it. Also since I was starving for so long...I need to eat by myself because I will not allow another dog to even look at my food right now. When I get more secure hopefully that will get easier for me...but I was hungry for a long time. I am waiting to be your big baby boy! Fill out my application and I will be over to visit you soon!

    Good with Cats: No  |   Good with Dogs: Yes  |   Good with Children: No Small Children

Ralphie
Breed:Catahoula Leopard Dog (Mix)
Color:Brindle (Tan)
Sex:Male
Age:1 yr
Weight:40 lbs
Fur:Short
  • My story: Ralphie is a sweet baby boy that just needs some more training to be your perfect baby. He was adopted by a couple who had another older male dog...and they didn't teach Ralphie that the other dog was there first. Ralphie tried to take over the alpha dog position and went after the older dog over a toy...so his parents wanted to take him to the pound. He would be a wonderful only dog or perfect with a female dog housemate. Ralphie does have a problem with sharing toys...and most toys he tried to chew up anyway. He is living with a pack of eight dogs...and he is doing just fine as he knows his role in the pack. Ralphie is just a big happy tippy...he is so happy to see you when you come home...sometimes it is like trying to pet a tornado! Teach him correctly, invest a little time and a lot of love and he will be a terrific puppy for you! Ralphie is up to date on his shots, microchipped, crate and house trained. Come meet this big baby boy who loves to play with other dogs and you!

    Special Needs: Needs obedience training lessons. Should be in a house...as he barks when he is alone. Has Separation Anxiety.

    Good with Cats: Unknown  |   Good with Dogs: Yes  |   Good with Children: No Small Children

Chico Bebe
Breed:Chihuahua (Mix)
Color:Tan
Sex:Male
Age:3 yrs 4 months
Weight:12 lbs
Fur:Short
  • My story: Chico Bebe was found in a local Tampa Subdivision and despite a long search...no one claimed this happy little bebe. He is such an affectionate little gentleman. He is social with other dogs...but a little grouchy around big dogs at first. He is a little longer than most Chihuahua's...so we believe he is a Chiweenie. He is house trained and just wants to sit in your lap or be by your side. So if you are looking for a perfect little gentleman...Chico Bebe is waiting to meet you!

    Good with Cats: Unknown  |   Good with Dogs: Yes  |   Good with Children: No Small Children

Mario
Breed:Labrador Retriever (Mix)
Color:Black/White
Sex:Male
Age:4 yrs
Weight:42 lbs
Fur:Short
  • My story: This boy is a small gentleman. Found wandering in Town N Country...he was first taken to Sunshine Animal Hospital...one of our many rescue partners. They tried to find his family or a rescue to take him...but had to end up sending him to the shelter. But they kept their eye on him...and reached out to St. Francis to go rescue him when his time was almost up. Mario is a sweet loving boy who is potty and crate trained. Loves to play with the pack of six other pups who reside at his foster home. He might have started out as a wanderer...but he was just trying to find his new home! Can you help Mario come home?

    Good with Cats: Unknown  |   Good with Dogs: Yes  |   Good with Children: No Small Children
