Name: Benjamin (14-67)
Age: 9 years old
Sex: Male
Weight: 14 lbs.
Spayed/Neutered: Yes
Coat: Smooth
Color: Black & Tan
Fee: $175
Location: Bradenton, FL
Email: pamelalaplantel@aol.com

Benjamin came to FLDR in August from Collier County Animal Services. He faced euthanasia due to severe periodontal disease, so we stepped up to rescue him. He has had a dental and had the majority of his teeth removed. He has five left and that seems to be plenty, as his appetite is great!

Ben is as sweet as the day is long. He loves people of all ages, dogs big and small, cats and chickens too! He does not dig or have much interest in hunting lizards or squirrels. While he likes to go outside and explore a little bit, he seems to prefer being inside in the air conditioning on his dog bed.

Ben is happy to sleep in the big bed or in his dog bed next to you. He would probably do best in a family where someone is home most of the time, as he does like to make frequent potty trips. He likes children but he is a fairly fragile little guy who might accidentally get hurt by a toddler, so a home with NO small children would be ideal.

If you think Ben is the right dog for you, please fill out an application with his name on it and email his foster family at pamelalaplantel@aol.com about your interest or with questions, so they can contact you about becoming his new forever home.

Name: Paco (13-152)
Age: 8 years old

Weight: 21 lbs.

Paco is a wonderfully happy boy. He always greets you with a tail wag and kisses. He loves to play with soft squeaky toys and tennis balls. He enjoys being outside whether hunting lizards or just sitting in the sun.

Paco goes through life giving it all he’s got no matter what happens. He’s truly an inspiration. Unfortunately he came to FLDR medically neglected. He’s successfully been through heartworm treatment and IVDD surgery. He still has a little waddle in his back end when he walks, but considering he went from no feeling in his back end to standing and walking is quite remarkable. It really shows his zest for life. I would like to say it slows him down but Paco has two speeds, fast and faster. He’s very smart but often selective in his listening to commands.

If you are looking for a companion full of love and happiness this boy is for you. Please give him a chance. You will be rewarded with a life full of tail wags and kisses.

If you think I am the right dog for you, please fill out an application with my name on it. If you have any questions, you may email my foster family at quita863@earthlink.net.

Name: Maxwell Smart (14-52)
Age: 7-8 years old
Sex: Male
Weight: 27 lbs.
Spayed/Neutered: Scheduled to be neutered 8/19
Coat: Smooth
Color: Red
Fee: $150
Location: Port Charlotte, FL
Email: melissa.kilmer@yahoo.com

Max is an amazing boy that has been through a lot and just wants to be loved! He was skin and bones at only 19 pounds and had heartworms when we got him, but he was still very sweet to be around and his spirit was still strong. He is the right weight now at 27 pounds and has completed the heartworm treatment. He is a healthy boy and very happy as well. He does still need to be neutered and then he will be ready to go to his forever home by about August 27.

Max is an adorable Doxie mix. He is a happy go lucky soul that likes to play with toys and other dogs. However, he’s not the best at sharing his toys and he likes to be the one getting all the love, so he would also do well as an only dog. As long as he has his person loving him, he’s happy! He will get up on the couch next to you to snuggle but he is happy to sleep on his own bed on the floor next to your bed at night. He also goes into his crate on request, is house trained, and LOVES to go for a walk on a leash. He’s a good leash walker, too, he doesn’t pull too hard or run really fast. He’s happy to keep pace with you. His ideal home would no doubt have children to pay extra special attention to him, loving him as much as possible.

Max is up to date on his shots and ready to be your best friend. He is smart, hence his name “Maxwell Smart”, and just a plain old “Good Ol’ Boy”. If you think he is the right addition to your family, please fill out an application with his name on it and/or email me at melissa.kilmer@yahoo.com.

Name: Cumo (14-58)
Age: 10 years old
Sex: Male
Weight: 24 lbs.
Spayed/Neutered: Yes
Coat: Long hair
Color: Piebald
Fee: $100.00
Location: Sarasota, FL
Email: calveg77@yahoo.com

Cumo is the sweetest boy who is wonderful with other dogs & cats. He blends very well. He is a spry 10 year old and always knows when to howl for food when the time comes. He just had a dental and his pre-dental bloodwork was perfect. He loves his food, and because of that, he is overweight and needs to be walked.

Cumo has microphthalmia or small eye, which is genetic and he has limited vision. Foster home strongly recommends a calm, non-chaotic home due to his limited vision. While he loves other animals, is very spunky and once lived with kids before they developed allergies, he can’t react quickly to sudden movements of active dogs and kids. Cumo would do best in a home with an older dog and adults.

He loves to walk, and needs to drop a few pounds. Cumo is a great dog who doesn’t have a mean bone in his body and still has many years to live and love.

If you think Cumo is the right dog for you, please fill out an application with his name on it and email his foster home at calveg77@yahoo.com about your interest or with questions, so they can contact you about becoming my new forever home.

Hi! My name is Mason. Let me tell ya, I am a barrel of energy and have a huge prey drive. If I catch sight of any animal, I will chase.

I am currently staying with large dogs and two cats. This being said, I would be great as an only animal. I do not like cats at all! But, I love dogs! I am super playful with them. We play all day long. I would do great with other dogs, but I just need a little training. If my dog friends take my toys, get near my humans or sometimes my food or treats, I will snap at them. Nothing some training won’t fix.

I would probably prefer a doggie buddy. I am very protective of things I love. However, I am the sweetest boy to my humans. I love to cuddle all day and night. My biggest addiction is my toys! I cannot be without them. They must go everywhere with me!

I am currently working on my potty training. I have gotten better since being neutered, but I am far from perfect on this matter. I don’t really mind my crate though, as long as you place my toy in with me. I am heartworm negative, UTD on all vaccines, my teeth are pearly white and I am so ready to find my forever family!

If you think I may be your forever boy, please email my foster family at sbauer7427@gmail.com and fill out an adoption application with my name on it. Can’t wait to meet you!

Coat: Smooth
Color: Red
Fee: $225
Location: Myakka City, FL
Contact: Deb Bird at 941-322-8209 or 941-928-0761

Mogli is smart as a whip! He likes other dogs, people…just about everyone! He would be a great farm dog. He loves to ride on the mower with foster mom. He won’t run off & comes when you call him.

Mogli has chronic dry eye & has to have his eye medications put in 2 times a day. So he needs someone who will be devoted to caring for him. This is a lifetime condition that cannot be cured, just managed. He doesn’t mind getting his eye meds & will jump up on a low table for foster mom to put the drops in.

Mogli is up to date on his vaccinations, heartworm negative & ready to find a new forever home.

If you think Mogli is the right dog for you, please fill out an application with his name on it and contact my foster mom at 941-322-8209 or 941-928-0761 about your interest or with questions, so she can talk to you about becoming my new forever home.

Name: Missy (14-23)
Age: 5 years old
Sex: Female
Weight: 22 lbs.
Spayed/Neutered: Yes
Coat: Smooth
Color: Red
Fee: $200
Location: Port Charlotte, FL
Email: melissa.kilmer@yahoo.com

Missy is a sweet girl who gets along with dogs and although she is not cat tested, I believe she would do well with them also. As an only dog, she would be a great companion to any single person, couple, or family with older children. She loves to go for walks and she spends a good portion of the day outside in the fenced-in back yard if she is given the chance.  Her legs are a little long, so she may have some Terrier mixed in.

Missy is a delightful girl that aims to please and has a heart of gold. She is timid at first meeting and sometimes startles easily at loud noises but she always reacts with caution and submission. Thunderstorms concern her to the point that she will either hide under a bed or pace while panting in the house, until it is over. Holding her in an effort to console her doesn’t seem to help much. She may have had somewhat of a fearful past, but she does well when she learns she is in a secure environment.

Missy likes to be around people but is not a “Velcro” dog and is not always under foot. She is obedient and house trained and loves to lay in the sunshine and enjoy the yard. She also does a delightful little dance at dinner time that makes me smile every time.

Missy is healthy, up to date on her shots and ready to be your best friend. She really is a sweetheart and I look forward to finding her forever home where she can feel secure for the rest of her life. If you think that could be your home, please fill out an application with her name on it and/or email me at melissa.kilmer@yahoo.com with any questions and she could be blessing your home in the near future.

Age: almost 2 years old
Sex: Male
Weight: 50 lbs.
Spayed/Neutered: Neutered
Coat: Smooth (coarse)
Color: Black & White Dapple (similar to Dalmatian colors)
Fee: $75

*This is a courtesy posting. FLDR bears no responsibility, present or future, in the adoption of Rascal.

I am a high energy Lab/Doxie mix! I look very unique and people stop and take my picture all the time. I’m not too fond of young children, I’m too nervous when they run around me, but older kids that like to snuggle are great. I’m also nervous around some men, as my first owner was a little rough with discipline, but I’ve been loved on for almost 2 years now and if a man is nice and sweet to me, I’ll lick him to pieces.

I need a new owner fast because there are two kids in my house that make me a little nervous and I need a quieter home with adults to love on me. I love the water and will be the best guard dog you’ve ever had! I don’t mind other dogs, or other cats but I do love to chase them.

If you think I am the right dog for you, please fill out an adoption application and contact my family at fitnesspro@hotmail.com or call 727-480-1654 about your interest or with questions, so they can contact you about becoming my new forever home.
