  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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
