Our Dogs *

Since all of our dogs live in foster homes and it is up to the foster family to transport for adoption events, we can not ensure that all dogs will be present. If you are interested in seeing a specific dog, please contact the person listed by phone or email to arrange a visit with the dog.


St. Francis dogs/puppies are living in foster homes.
Please contact their foster parent to meet our dogs.

    My story: Max (the Lion Hearted) is a ten pound... 2 year old chi that was rescued from a horrible hoarding situation where he was kept in a crate 24/7. He had an ear infections in both ears for over a year and had to have his ear canals removed. So he is now deaf. He has also shown to have some allergies (environmental?). He does get pretty itching at times. He loves to be with people and very outgoing. He gets along great with my other dogs and my 2 small daughters. Foster is working on his potty training...after being kept in a crate for most of his life...and he follows his big Foster brother & sister pups outside and is learning fast. He does not need to be crated while you are away...put does like to pick up my daughters toys and redesign them (chewed) for them. LOL So if you can provide a special loving Furever home...for this Little Lion Hearted baby who did not have such a great start to life...please fill out his application!

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

Breed: Labrador Retriever (Mix)
Weight: 55 lbs
Fur: Short
  • My story: Meet Libby...who has reached the unhappy milestone of being in Foster Care for 3 years since she was saved from the euthanasia list at a local shelter...after she was surrendered by her former family...all because the puppy got too big and violated their lease. Libby is a black lab mix, 4 1/2 years old and 55 pounds...and has had plenty of applications and meet and greets...but no one has ever given her a chance and took her for a week trial. She is not perfect...and has separation anxiety, fear of thunderstorms, and wants to chase everything that moves including kitties...but she is loving and listens and tries to please you. She wants nothing more than to sleep in bed right next to you too and cuddle! She can sit and shake, is crate & house trained too! *Due to loud bark - must be in a house! So if you are looking for a loving companion...then she is the girl for you! **Please note that we only adopt our dogs out to adopters living in the immediate Tampa Bay Area.

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