Dogs in Foster Homes
Rookie
Breed:Pomeranian
(purebreed)
Color:Tan & White
Sex:Male
Age:14 yrs 11 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! I was surrendered by a nice teenager whose family lost their home but loved me very much and made sure I made it safely to a rescue group. 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!

Oliver
Breed:American Bulldog (Mix)
Color:White & Tan
Sex:Male
Age:3 yrs 10 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!

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

Ralphie
Breed:Catahoula Leopard Dog (Mix)
Color:Brindle (Tan)
Sex:Male
Age:1 yr 4 months
Weight:54 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. 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 puppy...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

She is a little older lady...but she is crate trained, knows how to sit and is housebroken. Loves to play with her housemates...but is quiet and reserved until she gets confident around the other dogs. She is mostly black with white on the tip of her toes and at the end of her tail...along with a blaze of white on her chest. She is just gorgeous! Tipper needs someone who will treasure her the rest of her life and not treat her like trash and leave her at the curb. Will you be Tipper's new parent? She is waiting to meet you!

Color:Brown
Sex:Male
Age:2 yrs 3 months
Weight:17 lbs
Fur:Short
  • My story: Hi. I was rescued by a drug addict from her drug dealer. I know, sounds like a movie of the week, right lol. I'm super sweet and really, really love to cuddle, especially on your lap. I'm very good on a leash and I am mostly house trained. As long as I know where I'm supposed to go and you take me out regularly, I'm good. I get along fine with other dogs and now cats. (I had never met them before.) please give me a good home. My first daddy wasn't mean or abusive to me, just neglectful. I love being around you and will be the best companion you've ever had. My foster mom apologizes for the pictures. She says I'm impossible to capture because I keep moving thinking she's playing.. Lol, I do just so she'll play with me more.
