Dogs in Foster Homes
Libby
Date of Birth: 04/15/2015
Sex: Female
Color: Black & White
Breed: Labrador Retriever (Mix)
Weight: 58 lbs
Fur: Short
  • My story: Hi there...my name is Libby! I am 3 1/2 years old and about 60 lbs. I was saved on the day I was supposed to be euthanized...and all because I became aggressive to the shelter staff...after my former family left me at the shelter because their landlord said I grew too big to live with them. I wasn't really aggressive...just really, really scared out there! I wouldn't let anyone come near me...and in fact fought them the whole time they were trying to release me to my new foster mommy. She got me home and calmed me down with some chicken nuggets and lots of love! Even when I am laying at her feet...I am touching her with my paw or laying my head on her foot. I like to sleep in bed right next to you too and I cuddle! I sit and shake, am crate & house trained too! *Due to loud bark - must be in a house! So if you are looking for a loving companion...then I am 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

Dahlia aka Dolla
Date of Birth: 11/01/2016
Sex: Female
Color: Black & White
Breed: Boston Terrier (Mix)
Weight: 45 lbs
Fur: Short
  • My story: Dahlia was living in a hollowed-out tree after Hurricane Irma & St. Francis was contacted by one of the concerned neighbors. She was injured and very hard to catch...even evaded a Animal Control Officer! But a dedicated St. Francis volunteer and the neighbor kept leaving her food to gain her trust. It took them 2.5 months to get her & they took me to get medical help and I was covered in scars. I was fixed & microchipped & I had been adopted earlier in 2017 from PRC and my adopter said that they were going to return me but I escaped. I am the sweetest kind of wimp and I am a little timid at first. My foster mom brought me home...took her 3 months to get me out of her closet without hurting myself. Over the last year I learned to trust humans a lot more, & now I have a new foster mommy and daddy that I am learning to love too! I am ready for a forever home! I love other dogs, I chase cats a bit, but not to hurt them...I want to play!! I need someone who will be patient & love me!

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

Angel Baby
Date of Birth: 11/11/2011
Sex: Female
Color: Black/Tan & White
Breed: German Shepherd Dog (Mix)
Weight: 45 lbs
Fur: Medium
  • My story: I am the sweetest lapdog-wanna-be you haven't met yet. Despite seeing my human mom murdered, I love humans and want to trust you. I am a bit slow to trust the outdoors for walks, and I am not good with other dogs for long-term...so I need to be an only dog. I would love to have a fenced in yard to run & play in!!! I make up for it though by being a cuddle bug that just wants to be close to those I love. I like toys, and I would love to sleep with my humans, but I am ok with a bed of my own on the floor. I am used to being crated when you are gone, but I am pretty good if you don't like to crate. All I want is a fur-ever home, I promise lots of kisses and warm snuggles on the couch! **Please note that we only adopt our dogs out to adopters living in the immediate Tampa Bay Area.

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

Petunia
Date of Birth: 10/01/2017
Sex: Female
Color: Tan
Breed: Labrador Retriever (Mix)
Weight: 46 lbs
Fur: Medium
  • My story: Hi there my name is Petunia! I wasn't found...I walked into my Foster Mom's driveway and sat down & introduced myself! I am a one year old, 46 lb, sweet girl who wants to find my Furever home! I like other dogs, but I have an alpha personality, so I need to be an only Furchild. I do like kitties, but I like to chase them around the house, and I play rough...so no kitties would be best. I am microchiped, spayed, crate trained & housebroken! My foster mom thinks I could be trained easily to be an emotional support companion as I am very sensitive to your moods! I found my own foster mom...I just need some help finding my new Furever family!!! Is it with you? Fill out my application...and I will have my staff contact you! All pups get to come stay with you for a week's trial visit to ensure we will be a perfect fit! It won't take me long to pack!!! **Please note that we only adopt our dogs out to adopters living in the immediate Tampa Bay Area.

  • My story: Hi...my name is Cooper and I am a 37 lb. Shar Pei mix puppy and I am ready for my Furever Home! I was found wandering around North Tampa and I am still fearful around traffic! I just turned 8 months old and I am all puppy! I have lost all of my puppy teeth and I am anxious to try out my new set of chompers! That's right...i am in the chewing stage and nothing is safe! I love to bark and play (so apts. may not be good) and I have an independent personality! I am still learning how to be a good boy! I have had one session already with a private trainer and to adopt me...you must be committed to completing my socialization and training for our happy life together!
