Annie is available for adoption. She's currently fostered in Bradenton, FL (Manatee County). She is an 8 to 9-year-old greyhound shepherd mix with a quiet, laid back personality who loves being petted and hanging out with her person. She enjoys sleeping late in her dog bed, lounging on the sofa, and eating canned dog food (although she will eat a little dry food). She has some hearing loss with high pitches and soft noises, but she can hear and respond to louder sounds. Thunder can be bit scary, but she settles easily with a calming chew. Annie has no problem being left home alone for hours, and she promises to greet her person enthusiastically when they return with a play bow and a wiggle butt. She tolerates other dogs, but would do well as an only dog. Annie is a great companion and just wants to share her day with her person, whether it's relaxing, going for a walk, or having an adventure in the car. She is crate trained, house trained, good on the leash, up-to-date on her vaccines, spayed and heartworm negative. For interested applicants older than 65, she is eligible for our Seniors for Seniors program; for details, check out our website ewenityfarmsbch.com/adoption/

Buddy is being fostered in Palm City, FL (Martin County). He is an approximately 5-year-old, 40-pound low rider. He is a mix of six breeds based on his DNA test: American Pit Bull Terrier, Boston Terrier, Chow, German Shepherd, Bulldog, and American Staffordshire Terrier. He is a very mellow dog who wants nothing more than to be a couch potato. Buddy requires a home with a fenced yard, as he does not enjoy going off the property for a leash walk. He would be a good companion for someone who has a quiet lifestyle and is home most of the time. Buddy has an old weight bearing injury in his right hind quarter, so no athletics for him. He has been successfully treated for heartworms, is neutered, chipped and current on vaccines. He is housebroken, crate trained, and good with other dogs.

He requires a home with a high fence, as he does have the ability to jump over it if he isn't being monitored, and he has been known to sneak food off the counter. Coley is house trained, neutered, and up to date on his vaccines. All information about the rescue and adoption can be found at: ewenityfarmsbch.com.

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.

Duncan is available for adoption. He is being fostered in St Petersburg, FL (Pinellas County). Duncan (~6 years old, 60 lbs, stump tail Red Heeler mix) is a middle-aged, active, fun-loving guy who is looking for his forever home. If you're looking for a running buddy- Duncan is your guy! He gets super excited when you grab your shoes; he never misses his morning walk (although on a rainy day doesn't mind a slower approach to getting out). Duncan can also get excited when seeing other dogs, or sometimes a person or big trucks. This excitement is most evident at the beginning of a walk or run, but he tends to mellow out. His current foster home is working to increase his confidence while on-leash, reinforcing the "look" command to help direct his attention on his handler, easing some of his nervousness when any of these "dangers" are in-sight. His forever home will have to continue to this work. If there are no "dangers" present, he's a dream on leash. He doesn't pull and is attentive to direction and pace. He even loves to get out and run fast while his foster dad is on the long-board. Duncan has been enjoying at least two ~30-minute walks or runs a day, which allow him to relax the rest of the day; sunbathing in the back yard or napping near his foster parents quietly. Duncan is smart guy! He is very treat motivated and already knows sit, down, paw (left and right), and working on "bang" (play dead). He is a blast to train and picks up on new tricks quickly. He eats most of his meals out of a food puzzle and enjoys a treat dispensing ball mid-day if he starts to get antsy. When introduced properly, he gets along great with other dogs and can have fun at the dog park. He is even friendly to his foster parent's outdoor cat, only occasionally attempting to play chase. As eluded to Duncan is leash-trained, he's also house and crate trained. Although at his current foster home they have not needed to use the crate. Duncan prefers to sleep on the couch at night but respects being off-couch during the day. Due to his unknown past and being moved frequently he will need a committed family that will be patient with him. He needs strong leadership, moderate exercise, and mental stimulation to help him be his best. Duncan would thrive with an athletic, strong male presence. Since joining the Ewenity Family, Duncan has undergone treatment for his heartworms and is now in the clear. Duncan is neutered and up-to-date on vaccinations. To apply to adopt Duncan: http://ewenityfarmsbch.com/fostering/ All information about the rescue and adoption can also be found on the website.

Gracie is available for adoption, she is being fostered in St. Petersburg, FL (Pinellas County). Gracie is a 13 year old, 8lbs, Chihuahua senior girl. She was raised in a hoarding situation before we rescued her. She needs a home with other dogs (small to medium) because fellow pups give Gracie confidence and help her from being too scared. She is a skittish dog and apprehensive of everything, it takes her time to trust and even then she requires patience from her human to keep her safe. Her foster mom has been fostering her and helping her get over her fears for some time now. Even after being in her foster home for a while, sometimes when her foster goes to pet her in the morning she can run away, scared, but if the foster pets one of her other dogs, Gracie starts to jump in, asking to get affection. In the evening she will come up for pets/affection all by herself. She LOVES to curl up with her foster mom when watching TV/Sleeping, etc. She gets up and crawls under the covers in bed or sometimes curls up in her foster's lap, but any sudden move or sound she will leap 5 feet in the air and runs and hides. She just needs someone to give her the best safe space, with a companion animal also to help her confidence level. Typical of the Chi style, she can exhibit aggressive behavior to new people coming into her home. With new animals, she can be testy at first but once comfortable within a few days, she starts loving them. Gracie is house trained, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and preventatives, and heartworm negative. If anyone 65+ is interested, she is eligible for our Seniors for Seniors program (check out our website ewenityfarmsbch.com/adoption/ for more info on the program).

Hank is available for adoption and is currently being fostered in Land O' Lakes, FL (Pasco County). He is a Border Collie mix who is approximately 2 years old and 63 lbs. He was rescued from a high-kill, small rescue-only shelter in Georgia. He was very afraid at the shelter, but since then, he has greatly improved! Hank wants love but he does need to warm up and trust you. Then he leans into it and just melts! Hank may be dog selective, and he will need slow introductions with any other dogs in the household. He will need a dog savvy person who is patient and willing to give him time to adjust. All information about the rescue and adoption can be found at ewenityfarmsbch.com.

Henry is currently being fostered in Tampa, FL (Hillsborough County). This sweet pup is a lab/retriever mix, between one and two years old. He enjoys relaxing in the shade, playing with his blue ball, and receiving lots of belly rubs. Henry is house trained, sleeps through the night in his crate, and walks well on a leash. He gets along with his foster's two female dogs and is already learning a lot from them. Henry responds well to treats and positive reinforcement, and he shares his toys and food. He will benefit from another well-balanced dog in the house that can show him the ropes. Henry will probably be shy at first because he was left in a shelter by himself, and he will need an understanding family that is willing to give him time and space to decompress and feel comfortable in his new home. Henry was neutered after leaving the shelter, and he is up to date on vaccines. Henry is heartworm positive, and we are looking for a forever family that would be willing to foster him through his heartworm treatment and then adopt him. He will be a wonderful addition to any family! All information about the rescue and adoption can be found at: ewenityfarmsbch.com.

Huey (Baby Boy) is a 25-lb, 8-month-old Catahoula mix currently being fostered in Tampa Bay, FL. He likes to stay close to his people because he really enjoys pets and belly rubs. His foster mom lets him fall asleep in her arms, and he finds it very relaxing. He enjoys following his big foster brother around, and occasionally, he will break out in a zoomie to get him to play chase. His foster family says he is highly intelligent because he explores everything. He will require a fenced in yard, as he is taking in the world. He has learned "no," "come" and how to walk on a leash. He is house trained; although, he needs to work on his crate training and his ability to stay in it all night. He also needs to work on his puppy manners (people food just smells so good), and he is also very curious about cats. Huey is currently unaltered and up-to-date on all vaccines.

Jack is available for adoption or foster or foster-to-adopt. He is currently being fostered in St. Petersburg, FL (Pinellas County). Jack is 8 years old and about 27lbs though ideally he needs to lose a few and be around 23-25lbs. He's a small mix of some sort. Jack is sweet and loving, but can be nippy if he gets scared at first. He currently lives in a foster home with 3 other dogs and does absolutely fine. He will be fine in a house with other dogs but also absolutely fine as the only dog. He has no desire to play or cuddle with other dogs. He does not like it when dogs get in his face and will let it be know by snapping but he not a dominant dog. Jack has chronic bronchitis and needs ongoing medication and possible new style of treatment. He will need OVC medication for his joints too. His front right paw was previously broken before coming into rescue and he has limp that flares up. He will likely be best suited for an older person/couple with only dog or even 2nd dog that has his same demeanor, not anyone looking for companion dog for their current dog. He was definitely abused before he came into our rescue, so he can be scared or apprehensive at first. If anyone 65+ is interested, Jack is eligible for our Seniors for Seniors program (check out our website ewenityfarmsbch.com/adoption/ for more info on the program).

Jack is located in Bradenton and available for meets once an application has been approved.

Moxie, is a very athletic, high energy girl pulled from a local Florida shelter. She is very well put together, and will be perfect for any kind of dog sport. Currently we have jumping off the dock at about 12 -14 feet and that was day 3 of liberation from the shelter. She is a natural!! She also will do disc, but very much prefers the softer discs and will catch them in air. Toy and tug drive are prolific, stamina and tenacity are present. Moxie gets along great with other dogs and will be submissive with new dogs male or female. She currently lives with several ranging in size from 13 pounds to 70. Very friendly with others. Moxie is basically a diamond in the rough. She is crate trained, we are working on leash training and house breaking. She spent 2 months in a shelter and that is just no place for this lively smart girl. She picks up things very very fast, eager to learn and ready for more. Water baby. She will swim just to swim. She will retrieve and bring it back. She tugs. She jumps. She is wicked fast. A quiet girl in the house, stays out of trouble. No digging seen yet, lol. Does not try to jump the fence outdoors. i can go on and on about this treasure. Basically she will need a very active family one that is water oriented or a dog sports family. I have NO doubt aobut agility or scent work either. NOT a lawn ornament. She is strong but oh so maleable and such a love for life!! Needs an experienced handler wiht higher energy dogs that is willing to put some time in on her training. This dog is fostered in Bradenton. Please contact us if interested in her.

Nola is a sweet senior that was turned into the shelter by her owner, reason undisclosed. Nola is very people and dog oriented . She loves to be with you and she loves to initiate play with other dogs, almost to the point where she can be pesky. She listens to corrections well, can be a bit stubborn at times, but for the most post part she is a good girl and wants to be very obedient. Nola is a large girl coming in at 73 pounds, yes she is overweight and needs to lose about 10-15 pounds. She has some benign fatty lumps on her, nothing alarming. She is comfy taking walks with you, lying in the sun while you weed, sleeping at the foot of your bed. She is not destructive in the home at all, but she does have a taste for the garbage can if it is left for open foraging, lol! She is enjoying moderate walks and exercise, swimming would be a plus for her. Likes to play with toys and balls. Cats are unknown , but I think she would chase. Older kids just because of her size. She doesnt seem to want to jump on you or on the furniture. She would be a great companion girl for an older couple, with moderate walks, a good exercise program and another dog or two for companionship. Doesnt matter if large or small she gets along with all. She has been treated for heartworms the beginning of April so she is in the low activity recovery phase now and is doing great. No excessive exercise for anotehr month like running or jumping, so now is a good time for bonding. We have her on reduced weight management food and reduced portions. She will be going to the vet in another week or so to weigh in and get checked out. Overall this is a great low activity girl who will provide you with love and companionship without a lot of hoopla. She is fostered in Bradenton.

Ollie (aka Oliver) is currently being fostered in Palmetto, FL (Manatee County). He is a six-year-old, 25 lb rat terrier/cattle dog mix. His foster home includes four other dogs (two males and two females). He tolerates the male dogs, but prefers the female dogs; although, he could easily be an only dog. In addition, he is living with a cat, and three parrots. Although he isn't very vocal, he likes to sing along with the parrots. Ollie is a softy who goes with the flow, rather than running and playing. His favorite thing in life is to sit and lie next to his person, although he has not attempted to get on the furniture. He can get jealous when others lie next to his foster mom. He is house-trained and crate-trained. He does not eat people food, and he does not beg. This wonderfully behaved dog needs to be treated for heartworms, which occurs over a two-month period, and he will need low activity levels until it is complete. The rescue pays for all medical expenses regarding treatment and he will be fostered (not adopted) through the treatment period.

Sanibel is available for foster or adoption, she is being fostered in Bradenton, FL. Sanibel is the sweetest little gnome heeler. She came from a high-kill county shelter in Tampa Bay as an owner surrender and had almost no hair when we rescued her. She is a senior and she does have some medical conditions, but being a senior also means she adores being loved on, getting belly rubs, a good roll in the grass and lying in the sun on the back porch. Sanibel has arthritis, she walks slowly and has spondylosis of her spine. She can do steps and roll in the grass and even play briefly with other dogs. She has chronic dry eye and requires eye drops that the vet prescribed for her. Her skin still gets some scabbing and she does get a medicated bath every month or so. Her hair has mostly grown back, and her bad teeth have been removed. She is on supplements for arthritis, and has a special food that she will need to have in her forever home also, it has helped her skin immensely. She is housebroken, and will let you know with a bark when she wants to go out. She loves a soft cushy bed to lie in and will bask out in the sun. She is fine with other dogs or without. Has a great appetite. Sanibel does not need long walks, and she really prefers to be with you. She would love a nice quiet place with a yard to roam in, someone that can love her as she is, be patient with her and give her all the comforts of life. She even gives little kisses to the right person!! If anyone 65+ is interested, she is eligible for our Seniors for Seniors program (check out our website ewenityfarmsbch.com/adoption/ for more info on the program).

Scout (45 pounds, ~ 6 years old) is available for adoption and being fostered in Tampa, FL (Hillsborough County). He is lovingly nicknamed Frankenpuppy by his foster parents because he is the perfect amalgamation of spare parts - he has the blocky head of a pit bull, the big ears of a rabbit, the mohawk of a Rhodesian ridgeback, the body of a potato, and a sixth toe. The two most important things in Scout's life are food and cuddles. He is a very hungry boy (despite being well-fed) and loves to snack on frozen Kongs. If you are late for dinner, he will very respectfully let you know by bringing you his food bowl and dropping it loudly beside you. He is an A+ cuddler and his favorite spot in the world is upside down on the couch getting a belly rub - preferably sandwiched between two people for double the attention. He can be dog selective at times, but with proper socialization and training can likely be improved. He immediately loves all people (especially people with snacks). Scout came to Ewenity heartworm positive, and unfortunately, it had progressed far enough to leave some permanent damage to his heart. However, this doesn't slow him down at all (likely because he never moved very fast to begin with), and he is on track to be heartworm free by the end of May. While he enjoys walks, he much prefers to snuggle on the couch or bake in the sun. He's a low-key guy looking for a low-key family that will provide timely meals and endless snuggles. In return, he will gift you with gentle face licks, loud snoring, and a lifetime of love. All information about the rescue and adoption can be found at: ewenityfarmsbch.com.

Summer is available for adoption or foster. Summer is currently being fostered in Bradenton, FL (Manatee County). Summer is a sweet senior lab mix who found herself in the shelter when her owner passed. She is low energy, gets along with other dogs, but would do fine by herself. She likes to go for walks, will chase a ball, but mostly likes to stay by your side. She would be a great dog for a senior couple or someone who just wants a loving companion to have around. Summer is a bit overweight at 65 pounds and we are working on taking 15 lbs off. She listens well, knows basic commands, and is housetrained and crate trained. Summer is looking for that person who will take her to the beach for long walks to sit and watch the sunset, or go for short hikes in the woods. She walks great on a leash and loves to ride in the car. Anyone out there for this sweet girl? As a senior, Summer's standard adoption donation is $250, but $150 for a senior adopter 65+ through our Seniors for Seniors program.

Whitley is an Australian Cattle Dog of about 3 years and 50lbs. He needs a very heeler-savvy leader as his person. We think Whitley may do really well living the farm life, letting a heeler do what they are bred to do. Whitley is very intense, is easily excitable and needs a home that wants to provide him a moderate-to-high amount of activity. Since he is food motivated, he is a great trainee and wants to please! Whitley is a typical velcro dog and wants to be by your side, always. He loves his person and just wants to find his forever companionship in a human. His ideal home is with his humans and no other dogs or a submissive dog. He is house trained and a total dream in the crate. Whitley is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, microchipped and heartworm-negative. All information about the rescue and adoption can be found at: ewenityfarmsbch.com.
