  • Belgian Shepherd / Malinois, English Springer Spaniel
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Ali is fostered in Melbourne, FL (Brevard County). We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families. Ali (prounounced 'Ollie') is named as such as he is a little boy who won the fight for his life! When just a tiny pup, the runt of his litter, he had a seizure and survived with assistance from his foster mom. This was an isolated incident - he is in good health with a great prognosis from the vet. Ali's breed mix is a guess. His mom was a spaniel mix, but he looks like a tiny shepherd! Ali is around 7.5 months and weighs just 13 lbs! He requires a home with a fenced yard and no young children due to his tiny size, but older/considerate kids are fine. He is very loving and submissive, and has an average energy level for a pup of his age. He just adores people and is great with other dogs as well. Ali will go home on a neuter contract - when proof of neuter is submitted within the required timeframe, $50 of his adoption donation can be refunded. He is up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccines and preventives, and microchipped.

Amy is fostered in Plant City, FL (Hillsborough County). We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families. Amy is a sweet red heeler mix of 2 years and 27 lbs. She is a velcro girl who wants to be by your side at all times and loves cuddling in bed. She is lower in energy than an average ACD and just needs leashed exercise, though a fence would be a plus. She is not an off-leash dog as she can be skittish. Amy loves to play with other dogs in her foster home and gets along great with them, however she does require a home with kind dogs as she does not like to be cornered by larger dogs. She will chase and bark at cats, so they are a no-go. Amy will make someone a wonderful companion. We suspect she would be fine with older/considerate children. Amy is housebroken, crate trained, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, and will be microchipped prior to adoption.

Autumn will be available for adoption in the new year as her spay appointment is set for 12/31. She is currently fostered in Dade County, FL (Pasco County). Autumn is a gorgeous Australian cattle dog mix of 2 years and about 45 lbs. She is a tripod (tripawd) - had one of her front legs amputated - but doesn't let it get her down - she is a silly, playful and active dog. She loves water, playing with other dogs, and has great toy and treat motivation! She is a great dog and will make someone a nice companion. She does require a fenced yard. Older kids would be fine for her home. Autumn is housebroken, crate-trained, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, microchipped, heartworm-free and as mentioned previously will be spayed prior to adoption.

Blanche is fostered in Myakka City, FL (Manatee County). We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for fosters. Blanche is a little 8 lb senior lap dog. She loves to burrow in covers and blankets and particularly enjoys cave-style dog beds. She loves cuddling and has been to a nursing home to visit, and the residents absolutely adored her. Blanche takes meds for her heart and will be seeing a vet for follow-up soon. She gets along great with most dogs, but should be considered dog-selective, and as always in a home with other dogs, a meet-and-greet would be required with them. She should not go to a home with young children, and any kids around her will need to be patient, considerate and older. She has no teeth (we had them pulled for her health) but has a great appetite and will eat moistened kibble. She is spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, microchipped and heartworm-free. As a senior dog her standard adoption donation is $200, however she can be adopted by a senior 65+ for $100 through our Seniors for Seniors program.

Butterbean is fostered in Sarasota, FL (Sarasota County). We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families! Butterbean is a playful, energetic 2-year-old Australian cattle dog mix, likely with some kind of terrier. At 26 lbs she is quite petite. She was originally pulled from a shelter in Georgia having just had a litter of puppies, and we took her on after the rescue she was with was shut down. She is a fun-loving girl but still has the tendency to occasionally spook with unfamiliar experiences. She does not seem comfortable around canes and as such would not be suitable for therapy work. We think with the right training she would be a great little sports dog - lure coursing, disc, flyball and dock diving would likely all be within her grasp with the right handler. She has excellent toy drive and is quite intelligent and agile. She is very playful and will lure other dogs who are not necessarily playful to engage with her. Her foster parents frequently dogsit a dog of comparable size and energy and it is a match made in heaven for Butterbean! At the end of the day she is fully capable of settling in and cuddling. This dog will make someone a wonderful companion, but will definitely need regular activity to keep her busy mind content. A fenced yard is a must. Butterbean is mostly housebroken but will sometimes need to go potty on a puppy pad out on the pool deck at her foster home. Butterbean is spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, microchipped and heartworm negative.

Chewy is fostered in Casselberry, FL (Seminole County). We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families! Hi! My name is Chewy. I am a 5-year-old, 35 lb little thing. My life didn't start out that great; filled with neglect, I was happy to be saved by some amazing humans after it. Because of this I'm pretty timid when it comes to new people and new situations. I've been with my newest foster mom, who I'm really beginning to open up to, for a whole month! She's been wonderful. She's never pressured me to be in her presence. She doesn't make me do things I don't feel comfortable with. We enjoy hanging out on the sofa together while she casually passes me some delicious dog treats. When she calls the pack to go outside I'll jump out of my hiding spot to tag along behind my friends. I do need a doggie friend in my adoptive home. My foster mom has been singing my praises. She says I'm never destructive - she can leave me out of my crate and I'm an angel. I don't really care for toys or chews yet, but I have been caught running zoomies through the house! When my foster mom comes home I've also gotten caught up in the moment - I'm just so, so, so happy to see her!!! I bark excitedly and prance around so everyone else knows she's back! My little humans are the most precious things in the house. I just adore kids. I'll let them hug, kiss and love on me and it really makes me happy. I've never been afraid of my little humans. I'm completely potty trained, and will go potty on or off leash. I have a great dislike for water unless it's in my bowl. My foster mom has been slowly working on introducing me to water in other ways, but I'm still very concerned that it may hurt me. I eat like a champ and have no food aggression at all. I don't resource guard anything - what's mine can be shared. I'm super submissive but it's annoying when doggy friends want to play and I'm not feeling up to it. I walk perfectly on leash. But with that said, I'm an expert Houdini. If taken out of the house, which isn't ideal, then I should be double-leashed with a collar and a harness. The world around me is just scary and I really need to be able to trust. Ultimately I just want a family that will love me, understand my needs and allow me to be myself at my own pace. And honestly it might take a while for me to show you who I really am. But once you learn who I am you'll not be disappointed. I am perfect in my own way and looking for unconditional love. Chewy is spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, microchipped and heartworm-free.

Chris is available for foster or adoption. We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families. Chris is currently fostered in Bradenton, FL (Manatee County). Chris is a 4-year-old Chi/rat terrier mix who has a very calm demeanor. He plays with big dogs and little dogs, minds his own business most of the time, and is not needy, nippy or barky. He is a very independent fellow, but he does like to snuggle, play with toys, or just sit on the porch with you. He is easy to walk on lead and does OK in the car. He will need a fenced yard as he likes to explore, and enjoys the company of another dog, although that is not a dealbreaker for a good adoptive home. He tolerates sweaters and loves to sleep on the bed with you. He will not compete with other dogs. We have not had any accidents in the house with him. Chris would make a great companion dog, and with his moderate activity level, long walks would be great for him. Anyone looking for a cute, all-around good-natured little guy? Chris is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, microchipped and heartworm-free.

Clyde is coming out of his shell! Mr. Clyde is believed to be an English pointer/cattle dog mix of around 5 years old. He is great with other dogs and would do best in a home with another fur companion to show him the ropes! Clyde enjoys playing ball, walks well on a leash and began learning to swim in the pool this summer. He enjoys riding in the car and is an experienced navigator having taken business-related road trips from SW FL to CT with his foster mom. Clyde is known to be on the shy side but this summer he completed his Beginner Basics group class and did very well. He is ready for a family to call his own! Clyde is fostered in Englewood, FL (Sarasota County). He is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, microchipped and heartworm-free. 12/12/18 7:47 PM

  • German Shepherd Dog, Border Collie

Colt is fostered in Bradenton, FL (Manatee County). We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families. Colt is a handsome puppy between 4-6 months old. We expect he will be a large adult, as he is already 30 lbs. He is an extremely smart, biddable boy who thinks before he acts. He has no fear, and you can tell he is so engaged in living and learning. This boy does need to do some type of performance work or he will need a very active home that will engage him and let him use his brain. This guy LOVES to play, tug, balls, squeakies, and he LOVES water. He shares toys. He just learned about the pond this morning, and tends to think water bowls are mini swimming pools. He is a puppy so he needs to learn the boundaries of what he can and cannot do. He already knows sit, has a great recall, and is learning to leash walk. He uses a dog door and has not had one accident in the house. He is crate trained. He is still learning about his size in relation to other dogs, so he needs monitoring when playing with smaller dogs. Colt is a very very sweet boy. He may be a very nice dock diving dog and a great partner for regular jogging or hiking once fully grown. Colt is up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, and microchipped. He will be adopted out on a neuter contract - once neuter is completed within the specified timeframe, $50 of his adoption donation can be refunded.

Don is currently fostered in Sunset, LA for our rescue, Ewenity Farm, a Herding Dog Haven, which is Florida-based. Because of his temperament he cannot be placed on a transport run with strangers, so he needs to be picked up from his foster home. Don is a 32 lb male Australian cattle dog mix who has had a tough life. He is estimated to be 7-8 years of age, give or take 3 years. It is hard to tell due to the condition of his teeth. He will be having a dental prior to adoption to make sure anything that needs to be pulled is. His ears are somewhat rumpled from previous neglect, but are healthy. He needs slow introductions to other dogs, but does great with them once order is established. He is a tough cookie, a typical heeler who is selective about who he lets around. He is extremely loyal and loving with his chosen people. He will wait for his person day and night, warm your seat and cuddle with you. He is fairly laid-back but requires a bond with his people. He likes cats. He is housebroken and crate trained. Don is up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, neutered and microchipped. He is looking for a very special adopter. His standard donation is $250, however he can be adopted by someone 65+ for $150 through our Seniors for Seniors program.

Dot is fostered in Vero Beach, FL (Indian River County). We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families! Dot is a sweet and good-natured pup, estimated to be between 18-24 months and about 38 lbs. She is a border collie mix, likely with some kind of hound - maybe beagle or treeing walker. She is easygoing and seems to get along with everyone, including considerate kids. She is average in energy and temperament, walks nicely on lead, and is learning basic commands in her foster home. She does love the companionship of another dog, and will need a fenced yard as well. She is still learning doggie etiquette with the help of her 3 foster siblings, but has come a long way. Dot likes playing with toys and will fetch for you. As we would recommend for any dog, she should be fed in a crate. She loves the companionship of humans and going for walks. She has the most beautiful, soulful eyes. Dot is housebroken, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, microchipped and heartworm-free. She is ready for her forever family!

Dyna is available for foster or adoption. We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families. Dyna is currently fostered in Sunrise, FL (Broward County) and transport can be arranged to a new foster home. Dyna is 2.5 years old, a border x lab, and needs to shed a few pounds. She is great with humans of all ages and has lived her whole life with children in the home. She loves to play with like-sized dogs, but we would not recommend placement with a dog less than 30-35 lbs, and she cannot go to a home with cats. She loves to play tug and ball. She arrived rather fearful and has made great progress, however she is not completely out of the woods. She doesn't like leaving home too much and would make a great companion dog for someone with a fenced-in yard for her to play in. Dyna is spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, microchipped and heartworm-free.

Ellie May is fostered in Bradenton, FL (Manatee County). We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families. Ellie May is a 1.5-year-old mixed breed, her listed mix being a best guess. She is a sweet, outgoing and sociable girl of about 40 lbs. Her personality wins over every person who meets her! This is a dog who needs a job. She would be an excellent hiking, jogging or canine biathlon partner. She jumps off the dock at dock diving and has a ton of potential there. She is also excelling at scent work and can do buried, room search, container or vehicle scent detection work. Agility is also well within her grasp. Ellie May is very compatible with other dogs, submissive but playful. She does best matched with another medium-large energetic dog. She runs like the wind when playing and will share toys. She has no resource guarding tendencies whatsoever. She would also be fine with older/considerate kids due to her energy level. Ellie May has great recall, and is working on leash manners and basic commands. She is housebroken and crate trained. She is spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, microchipped and heartworm-free. Please do not overlook this girl if you are looking for an active companion or performance dog.

  • Pointer, Labrador Retriever

Fiona is available for foster or adoption. We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families. Fiona is currently fostered in Plantation, FL (Broward County). Fiona is an amazingly sweet girl who was saved from a shelter before she gave birth to six babies. She looks and acts as if she has had pups before. When she came to me, she acted as if she had not been in a home for a very long time, if ever and certainly not on a leash before. She is very timid and has no idea of what her name is and does not respond to Fiona. She will respond when you gently coax her to you for some food, petting or a treat. Once her trust in you builds, she becomes a loving pet who sticks like glue to your side. She is a bit damaged by the hard life she cannot tell us about. There are old scars on her body. She has an extreme fear of men and does not understand being on a leash or rope. She is also afraid of bathrobes, flashlights, sticks and brooms. Many of her little oddities I just ignore and she does fine. This lovely little girl has been a wonderful mama to her pups and even though they are over a month old now, she still cares for them as a mama should. She has watched and joined my pack of dogs and learned their routine. She has found that a couch is a nice thing to nap on. She loves sleeping on her little bed on the floor nearby at night. She has made fast friends with the female dogs in my pack, who have mothered her and shown her how things work. She has even shown the tiniest desire to fetch a toy, but is still unsure. Since she was pregnant and then nursing her puppies, no emphasis has been put on any kind of training or walking on lead. Trust building has been her only work. She will soon have to leave our home and pack for her forever home or new foster home and I think she has relaxed a lot. She will still need a patient family. She prefers women to men and may be wary of men for some time to come. She is learning to trust my husband, but has a way to go yet. She is good with teen girls and probably will be good with well behaved children, as she is very gentle. She has no food aggression, but eats apart from the other dogs just so they won't bother her. She takes treats gently and side by side with the pack with no problem. This poor girl has so much love to give and enjoys some gentle stroking and time laying by your feet quietly. She needs a chance to keep coming out of her shell so she can enjoy a good life. Her bark is a little hound like, but she is mostly quiet. The DNA test on her puppies will be done soon and we will know what her mix is. Fenced or walled yard required. Fiona is accepting applications now. We plan to spay her as soon as possible and get all her other vetting up-to-date.

Frosty is fostered in Clearwater, FL (Pinellas County). We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families! Frosty is a sweet little senior schnauzer mix (we also see some other terrier and chihuahua) at 10 years young and 15 lbs. She takes a few days to warm up, but once she is bonded she wants nothing but to follow your shadow, sleep in a nice comfy bed next to your couch, and nudge your hand for gentle pets. She will be happiest in a quiet home with someone willing to show her slow, gentle, and confident affection. Being timid and defensive around fast movement and noises, we would not recommend children in the household. She doesn't mind dogs but would rather live in an one dog house. She does seem to love cats and will perk up and wag when one walks past. She has shown some mild resource guarding behavior towards other animals when she is around her human, and it is something that she responds quickly to correction, but will be an ongoing training opportunity in her new home. She is fully house-trained but does need to take her time out in the yard. She loves easy walks and sniffing everything in the world around her! Frosty is a simple, sweet old gal looking for a forever home to lay her head. She is spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and preventatives, has had a recent dental, is microchipped, and heartworm negative. Her standard adoption donation is $250; however, she can be adopted by a senior citizen 65+ for $150 through our Seniors for Seniors program.

India is currently fostered in Sunset, LA for our rescue, Ewenity Farm, Herding Dog Haven, which is Florida-based. We are hoping to find a Florida foster or adopter so we can arrange transport to Florida! Hi, my name is India! Thanks to Ewenity, the 4 years I spent in a shelter came to an end! I've been placed with a seasoned foster who has helped me to overcome many hurdles with love and patience! I have come so far from being a former shelter dog. I am loved, cherished and respected. I no longer have to scrap for meals. I no longer have to wait to feel the softness of a bed! I get to give love and receive love always. I spent a long while acclimating to living free with other fosters. I have overcome my need to challenge my way to dominance and protection. I know I will be fed, I know I'll get attention, and I know that I can give kisses and snuggles freely. I do very well with balanced males, especially the ones that like their own space and aren't always in mine. I am OK with very dog-savvy cats that can also respect my space like they want theirs respected. I am not a huge fan of very public places, but I can go on a leash. I just ask that my space by respected from the other four-legged animals I do not know. It takes me a while to like others, but eventually I get it. I love to go for walks. I love to ride in the truck and go places. My foster mom keeps me on a short leash so she can protect me in public places. I don't like others in my face or tail. I do, however, love people! I'll clean your face very well! And I'll cuddle up to you, if you allow me to. I love my beds and toys! I love stuffed animals and won't chew them to smithereens. Now, if it has a squeaker in it, sorry, I'll get that squeaker out and demolish it, but I will treat my stuffies like my babies. I'll carry them around everywhere I go. I don't chew furniture or shoes. I'm not destructive unless it squeaks! I can be trusted to stay by myself for hours! I'm very good for my foster mom! My ideal forever home would be with no other animals so I don't have to stress. But I can go to a well-seasoned adopter with multiple dog handling experience! My foster mom thinks I'm amazing and wants to find the right home for me! Is your home my forever home? India is up-to-date on her vaccines and preventives, and is spayed and heartworm negative.

Irwin is available for foster or adoption. We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families. Irwin is fostered in Anniston, AL and transport is available to West Central Florida. Irwin is a shy boy and a big boy at 60 lbs and only 7 mos. He will need a home that can accommodate a big boy! Irwin is a double merle but shows no signs of sight or hearing impairment with an experienced special needs foster. He is showing interest in toys and playing as he settles into home life. Irwin takes a little time to warm up, moreso with men. We think he would do best in a home without young kids. He gets along with other dogs, but does exhibit barrier reactivity with dogs only. This can absolutely be worked with. Irwin is mostly housebroken and has never had an accident in his crate, which he is trained with. Prior to adoption or moving to a new foster he will be up-to-date on vaccines, neutered and microchipped.

Jackie is just too handsome not to be spoiled in a loving forever home. He is a 50 lb Australian Cattle Dog mixed with a breed that gave him a wider snout and a big, fluffy, curly tail (your guess is as good as ours)! In March of this year his owners surrendered him to a shelter because they were moving. Jackie then waited in the shelter until August, when we took him into a foster home under our rescue. He's currently being fostered in St. Pete, FL (Pinellas County). We are looking to find him a family that will consider him family and will never abandon him to an uncertain fate. Estimated to be in the range of 3-5 years old, Jackie is housetrained, great in the crate, great on leash and has a normal-to-minimal amount of energy. He seems to do fine with other dogs and is friendly to all people. Getting petted is his favorite; he'll even sit nicely for it. He gets excited to play fetch, though looks like a total goofball trying to catch the ball mid-air, it's quite amusing. If you are looking for a companion dog to hang out with you and take some strolls outside with you - Jackie is your guy. He is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, microchipped and heartworm-free.

He needs a job, a fenced yard and plenty of exercise. He loves to play with basically any toy, especially the ball and disc. He is great at tracking and catching both. He loves water and playing tug. He is good with other dogs but will need canine companions tolerant of his herding behavior. He loves to chase and run with other dogs. At the end of the day he is finding his off switch and loves to cuddle up with his person. Jasper is housebroken, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, microchipped and heartworm-free.

Kristoff is available for foster or adoption. We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families! Kristoff is currently fostered in Tampa, FL (Hillsborough County). Kristoff is a sweet 1.5-year-old boy who has been in foster care his whole life. He and his five brothers and sisters were born in foster care on June 25, 2017. Kristoff is a pretty well-adjusted dog, who at 50 lbs wants to be a lap dog. He's been learning 'go lie down' so that he will lie on a dog bed instead of trying to be on someone's lap. Kristoff gets along great with other dogs and knows how to sit for treats and petting. Sometimes he gets excited and jumps up on people still, but he remembers pretty quickly that he's supposed to sit instead of jumping up. He's very sweet, but he does get excited and jump on people sometimes, so he may be too much for younger children or children who have not been around big, energetic dogs. He does not like riding in the car, which will improve with time and exposure. He is friendly toward all and just waiting for a family to come scoop him up! Kristoff is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, microchipped and heartworm-free. He is housebroken and crate trained as well.

She gets along with other dogs, but does need to be fed in a crate, which we recommend for all our dogs. She would also be fine in a home as an only dog, but does require a fenced yard.

Nathan is available for foster or adoption. We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families. Nathan is currently fostered in Bradenton, FL (Manatee County). Nathan is a very, very sweet, submissive 4-year-old, 15 pound Jack Russell x Dachshund mix. He is a little longbacked but not a low rider. He has the cutest ears that fold over. He can be a little bouncy, loves to play with toys and tug, and has some spring in his step! He would love to be a lap dog, but he would also like to play tug and fetch with you. He plays well with other dogs, but does not like to be bombarded with an overexuberant dog, which will cause him to go run and hide. He does best with amicable calm meets and then the fun and games can begin. He is super friendly with people of all ages. While he has never been exposed to cats in our rescue, I would bet he will be afraid of them. He is very crate trained; his crate is his safe spot. Housebroken, loves to lie in the sun. Leash broken and walks nicely. Would make a great companion dog for someone that is moderately active and has another moderately active dog that is not larger than medium-sized. He has a lot of love to give and gives ear kisses. Loves to sleep with you. Have not tried him on disc or water yet. I would recommend a fenced area for him. If you are looking for an affectionate snuggling dog, this would be your boy. He is not guardy and shares toys well. He will be ready to leave in two weeks and we are now taking applications on him. Nathan will be all up-to-date on vetting prior to adoption.

Niko is fostered in Sarasota, FL (Sarasota County). We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families! Niko is a very laid-back, loyal boy of about 9 years and 65 lbs. He had surgery to repair a knee injury and is doing great. He likes to play with his toys, but will not chase them. He does not show any interest in swimming. Niko is the kind of dog who will never stray from your side once he trusts you. When you arrive home from work he is right there at the door waiting for you to come in. He gets very happy to see you after even moments away from him. He can have a brief moment of leeriness with strangers, even kids, and as such we are recommending only older, considerate children for his forever home. This manifests as a quick snarl and it is done. This is not to say he has a mean bone in his body, and we believe it could be him protecting the person he has made a connection with. If you introduce new people, we have found that giving them a treat to give him he will be less likely to have that moment of leeriness. Regardless, he would make a loving and loyal family dog. He currently lives with a young lady, her younger brother and friend. They are confident he would be fine with elderly folks as well. He knows basic commands such as 'sit, crate and go lay down' but can be stubborn and responds to commands on his own terms. Niko is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, microchipped and heartworm negative. He is looking for a special person or family to give him a loving forever family. As a senior dog, his standard adoption donation is $250, however he can be adopted by a senior adopter 65+ for $150 through our Seniors for Seniors program.

Opal is a heeler girl of no more than 2. She was rescued after living in the woods about a month. She gets along with the male dog in the home but not the female, and will need further evaluation and a meet-and-greet with a prospective adopter's other dogs, as we require. She is a great dog, housebroken and walks nicely on a leash. She loves the water and toys - we smell a dock diving or other sports prospect. She will chase small, running animals, so cats are a no-go. She can jump out of a standard fence, so a 6' or taller privacy fence is required for her home. Opal is spayed and up-to-date on vaccines and preventives.

Sissy is a sweet low rider bassett/doxie mix of 30 pounds. She came from an abusive home and is shy when first meeting new people and in new situations, but is willing to be courageous. She is very timid around men and will need to be treated with love and patience in that regard. It is better to embrace that situation than to avoid it, so a home with understanding males is welcome. She has a fair amount of energy and is good with other dogs once properly introduced. Loves to play, loves to run. She is good on lead and loves to ride in the car. Snuggles with the best of them. She is a shredder so no blankets in the crate please. Sissy does know sit, has a great recall and needs work on down. She can be stubborn at times, but a little food reward can work wonders. Crate trained, housebroken and uses the doggy door. Has a good amount of ball drive. Has not made a motion towards water. Great all-around companion dog, great hiking or biking companion. Not a backyard ornament. Will need an adopter who is willing to further her manners and take her to obedience classes and socialize her more, especially with men. Sissy promises to be a loyal loving family member. She is fostered at the farm in Bradenton. Fenced yard is a must, and so are other good natured dogs.

Once she gets over her initial shyness, she loves belly rubs. Due to her past, she needs needs structure and boundaries set in her new home, as any dog would. She does well with other dogs and is playful, but does have some issues around resources with other dogs, so she will absolutely need to be fed in a crate (something we strongly recommend for any dog) and needs a rescue-friendly, patient adopter. She does not like loud noises like gunshots. She is housebroken and crate trained, and absolutely needs a crate in her new home - it is her sanctuary.
