Dogs in Foster Homes
Mac
Breed:Shar-Pei (Mix)
Color:Black/White
Sex:Male
Age:3 yrs 1 month
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 will turn 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!

Shadow
Breed:Labrador Retriever (Mix)
Color:Black
Sex:Male
Age:2 yrs 9 months
Weight:44 lbs
Fur:Short
  • My story: Hi my name is Shadow and I am a Black lab mix. I was bought as a present for someone's girlfriend...but she didn't care for me too much. I am a high energy puppy who would love to run and play with you. I haven't had a lot of training...so you will have to teach me some manners. I was tied to a tree for six months...so my first thought is to jump on you to get you to pay attention to me. I want to be a good boy...but I still have a short attention span but know when I have been a bad boy...and I am usually really sorry! I will be three years old in July of 2014 and a medium size dog at @ 44 lbs. I am just a big love who would love someone to love me back! I love to cuddle and sleep with you in bed. Who wants to play? I would love someone who likes to jog or run! If you have a fenced in back yard...it needs to have higher than a six foot fence as I can jump anything smaller. I am waiting to play!

    Special Needs: His perfect home would be someone who lives in an apartment or a condo and loves to go RUNNING...because Shadow would love to go with you!!!!

Rudy
Breed:Chihuahua
(purebreed)
Color:Tan/White
Sex:Male
Age:6 yrs 4 months
Weight:10 lbs
Fur:Short
  • My story: Hi Guys my name is Rudy my foster mom calls me Rudy Tootie and I kinda like that, I am a 5 year old Chihuahua, my last mom died and no one was there to care for me so I ended up in a shelter, a nice lady from a rescue came and got me and it sure is nice here for that shelter sure was scary and noisy. My foster mom has worked very hard with me training me to go out I finally know now to go to the door to go out, I'm use to being a only child and like being the only child that way I don't have to compete for attention, I like my doggy bed and treats, what would really make me very happy is to have my own mom again just me and her, or even a dad wouldn't be bad, I think I would like that also, older children would be fun, I love to snuggle and sleep in bed with you but better warn you ahead of time I like to sleep real close to you and I'm a bit of a bed hog my foster mom is always moving me over. If you look at my pics you will see me smiling I like to smile because I am happy knowing I will have my own home and family again soon, so want you come and get me I am packed up and ready to go I travel light. Love Rudy

I give excellent hugs, always willing to snuggle (especially in bed), and my listening skills are amazing. I can even sit up straight and hand you my paw! I currently reside with my canine friend, Ameila, but my foster parents would like to find me the right home. I am not a fan of cats and I have not been around children very much. I am very good with people and love any attention that comes my way! In fact, I was the star of a short film shown at the Cannes Film Festival. I have not been around many other dogs other then Amelia...but she is my friend and we get along great. Thanks for taking the time to get to know me. Hopefully I will get to know you as well!

  • My story: Hi there I am Max and I am looking for a new family. I am a older guy...will be 7 in August...but still full of energy and full of love to share with you! My former family is having a new baby and they are reading the stories in the media about big dogs attacking them...even though I am a sweet boy. My only fault is that my former dad used to play with me rough...and I love to play! I know my basic commands, I shake both paws and can roll over, and love to fetch a stick in the water. I always try to be a good boy. I am ready to come stay with you!

BoJangles
Breed:Chihuahua
(purebreed)
Color:Blonde
Sex:Male
Age:3 yrs 10 months
Weight:12 lbs
Fur:Short
  • My story: Hi my name is BoJangles my new foster mommy gave me that name when she picked me up at the shelter, she came for another dog and ended up with me, can you imagine that. Guess it was meant to be I am very happy at her house for she feeds me good and takes real good care of me for I was very sick when I got to her house, she doctored me right up and I am healthy and ready to go. I don't know what happen to my other family I was found wandering the streets, I guess I got pretty hungry for I like food and don't like to share it with my other foster pals, my foster mom says I am too food aggressive whatever that means, I just like to eat so she feeds me in the crate and that is fine with me I just run in and gobble up my food, I have learn to get along with her other dogs and I like to sleep in her bed with her she has a nice blanket for me to burrow in, I am very loving and like to be held and kissed, the only flaw I can think of is my front legs are a little bowed but I can still run and play, I don't really mind a crate as long as I'm not left in it all day, I don't bark a lot unless I feel my home is being threatened and I have protect my foster mommy, I'm a real good boy for I don't chew up stuff, such as your shoes, furniture and etc... I would like to have my own home again with a soft doggy bed and a bone to chew on, if you can offer me these things I will love you unconditionally and take care of you and give you the best kisses you ever had...Did I mention I am a good boy? I am house broke I go outside to potty. Now a word from my foster mommy. I feel Bo would do very well as a only dog male or female owner, I'm not sure about small children and don't think he would like cats that much but you never know. as we don't have either here, he was very food aggressive when I got him so I separate him from the other dogs to feed him and he is doesn't mind eating in the crate, he prefers it. I think Bo was very neglected he doesn't show signs of being abused.

Charlie
Breed:Chihuahua
(purebreed)
Color:White/Tan
Sex:Male
Age:11 yrs
Weight:10 lbs
Fur:Short
  • My story: Hey dog lovers, my name is Charlie and don't let my age deter you from taking a close look at the most handsome dog on the worldwide web. Thats right get up close and look into my eyes. Do you see it? I thought so, see all that love in there, I have to offer you, I'm not real sure how I ended up in the shelter just woke up one day and there I was in this awful cold cage lonely and frightened, wondering where my owner was. Ever get drunk and wake up and not know where you are, well it is sorta like that. Anyhooo they gave me 2 days to live boy was I terrified shaking like a leaf even crying a little but this real nice lady from a rescue came down and scoop me up and brought me home with her that sure was a change from the shelter that is as close to jail as any dog can get. I just want all of you to know I am good and healthy don't have a lot of teeth left but what old man do you know that does. I can still give kisses and I would love to have you scratch my belly and love me and I will return that love more than you can imagine, so come on give an old dog a chance that was on death row I promise you won't regret it. I travel light just a blanket and a few personal things....I'm waiting...
