Dogs in Foster Homes
Mac
Breed:Shar-Pei (Mix)
Color:Black/White
Sex:Male
Age:3 yrs 8 months
Weight:60 lbs
Fur:Short
  • My story: Hi! My name is Mac. A nice family found me after I was abandoned in the Tampa Heights neighborhood. I am a very sweet and very playful young boy- I turned three in March of 2014. I love to go on walks, play catch, I do well on a leash and I like to play with other dogs. I currently live in a foster home with cats and dogs. I've been told I sometimes play too rough with the kitties and some cats don't like that. So if your kitty doesn't like to be chased...maybe I am not the puppy for you. I like children and while I'm not aggressive, my size and energy may not be a good fit for a house with small children. My Foster Mom sez that I give the best kisses and I love to sleep in bed with you! I am very alpha...so you will need to take me to a trainer or be an experienced dog owner to be my Master. I have been taking some lessons...and I have been doing very well with my trainer. Do you have room in your family for me? I love to watch TV with you! I've got my bags packed and I'm ready to go home with you! My trainer, Hillary DeChance will even come give you a couple of free lessons when you adopt me!

Nilla
Breed:Australian Cattle Dog (Mix)
Color:Tan/White
Sex:Female
Age:2 yrs 7 months
Weight:42 lbs
Fur:Medium
  • My story: Hi my name is Nilla and I was rescued by St. Francis from a local shelter. I am about two years old and still full of puppy playfulness. I am some sort of hound mix but I love to play with other dogs and I am just curious about what a cat is. Update...now she has started to chase them...not sure if she is just playing or really wants to catch them. I have not been around children in my foster home...but I am so sweet...my foster mom thinks I would do well with older children. I am crate trained and know some basic commands...and you may want to take me to finish my training so I am the absolute best puppy you can have! I love to run and play...who wants to join me in a game of catch me if you can?

Roxi
Breed:German Shepherd Dog (Mix)
Color:Tan/Black
Sex:Female
Age:1 yr 2 months
Weight:57 lbs
Fur:Medium
  • My story: My name is Roxi and I am a one year old German Shepherd Mix. I am a very sweet puppy who needs a home of my own. I am still full of puppy mischievousness and have lots of energy...so I will need some further training when I come to live with you. I was living with my young owner...but she is now living at a place that does not allow dogs. Her friend tried to keep me...but now I am too big and strong for her to handle. I love to play with other dogs and I would love to play with you! Call St. Francis and set up a play date with me!

Rookie
Breed:Pomeranian
(purebreed)
Color:Red (White)
Sex:Male
Age:14 yrs 3 months
Weight:15 lbs
Fur:Long
  • My story: Hi! I am a 14 year old sweet little man who just wants to sit in your lap and have you adore me! My house mate Lacey and I were surrendered by a nice teenager whose family lost their home but loved us very much and made sure we made it safely to a rescue group. We don’t have to stay together…but that would be awesome as we do like to be with each other. Here is what my foster has to say about me: What a beautiful guy, loves to be brushed & rubbed down. He's good about going outside to do his business. He's a quiet guy, usually waiting patiently for love. This boy would bring comfort to his forever owner. I believe he wouldn't want to be in a home with children, maybe an older family. He's great when it comes to car rides. You'll be happy that you found this one! Don’t you just love my cute haircut and picture? The nice couple, Cindy and Greg, which run the Barkmobile Mobile Grooming Salon were nice enough to donate my grooming and make me look this fabulous! If your dog needs grooming…I highly recommend them! They serve the Odessa, West Chase and North Tampa area. Contact them for an appointment at 813-926-1400. Meanwhile I am waiting for my new forever Home! If that is your place…please click the button below and fill out my application!

Maggie
Breed:Chihuahua
(purebreed)
Color:Brown/White
Sex:Female
Age:1 yr 3 months
Weight:8 lbs
Fur:Short
  • My story: I am a sweet but timid little girl who is shy at first…but once I get comfortable in your house…I love to play! I was rescued from a local shelter and I don’t know why I was left there. If you can give me a chance to get adjusted I will be the best little dog for you! A nice man tried to take my picture…but I kept barking at him. My foster isn’t sure if I am afraid of men…or just don’t like my picture taken. I gave them a hard time about getting these pictures taken…because I didn’t want to sit still. If you can be patient with me…fill out my application and I could be playing at your house soon!

Oliver
Breed:American Bulldog (Mix)
Color:White/Brown/Black
Sex:Male
Age:3 yrs 2 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!

Cocoa

Age:3 yrs 7 months
Weight:13 lbs
Fur:Short
  • My story: My name is Cocoa and I am looking for my forever home. I am good with all kids, little and big, cats and dogs. My favorite thing to do is go for long walks.

Ralphie
Breed:Boxer (Mix)
Color:Brindle (Tan)
Sex:Male
Age:8 months
Weight:27 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. Only an experienced dog owner should ever try to have two dogs of the same sex in the same house or you will have dominance problems. 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 puppy...and the dominance issue was not his fault...it was his former owners who gave him incorrect signals that made him think he was number one. Teach him correctly 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

Tonto
Breed:Rottweiler (Mix)
Color:Black/Brown
Sex:Male
Age:3 yrs
Weight:67 lbs
Fur:Medium
  • My story: This boy was rescued by a young couple who were following each other home in their separate cars...and witnessed this poor boy running down the highway and almost getting hit by a truck! They both pulled over and took him home to keep him safe. Tonto is a big baby boy who knows how to sit, lay down and shake! He is living with a female dog at his foster home...and he is just a love to have around the house. Tonto is looking for someone who will keep him safe in a loving "furever home"! He is neutered, has all his shots and is microchipped. If you are the one that Tonto was running down the highway searching for...please fill out his application and we will make sure he gets a ride over asap!

Teeny
Breed:Chihuahua
Color:Tan
Sex:Male
Age:8 months
Weight:12 lbs
Fur:Short
  • My story: Teeny is a Chihuahua mix that is a sweet eight month old little baby. Rescued from a local shelter because he was not doing well there...he is a cute high energy puppy. Teeny does have one small problem to overcome...someone scared this poor baby to death...so sometimes he does trickle when he gets excited or scared. He has been in his foster home now for three weeks...and as he gets more confident...he is having less of a problem. Puppies can only hold themselves one hour for every month old...so he is not fully potty trained yet if you are gone too long and can't let him out. Teeny loves to play with dogs and the cat. So if you have the patience to work this this baby to help him overcome his fear...he will reward you by being the best baby you will ever own. He is eager to learn and just needs someone to love him. He is already saving kisses up for you!

Dauber
Breed:Chihuahua (Mix)
Color:Black/Tan
Sex:Male
Age:3 yrs
Weight:9 lbs
Fur:Short
  • My story: Dauber is a three year old cute boy...who has had a rough life so far. Abandoned by his owner on a lady's doorstep...he tested heartworm positive...and a strong positive which is the worst and could have been a death sentence if left untreated. But the treatment could kill him too. He is undergoing the grueling medical treatment to try to save his life. He is in the second month of taking an antibiotic and will begin the heartworm shots next month if he continues to do well. Dauber needs to have very minimal activity and must remain in his crate the majority of the time. He unfortunately is in a house with multiple foster dogs...which is not the restful atmosphere he needs to survive this treatment. He is so fun loving and playful...you would never know this boy was so sick. Loving, potty trained and sweet...except for the heartworms...he is a perfect dog. If you can find room in your home to help him by completing his treatment in a quieter atmosphere...please fill out his application. You would foster him at first while St. Francis completes paying for his medical treatment. Once he is cured and has his neuter surgery...then he would become your baby boy.

    Special Needs: Heartworm positive...undergoing treatment
