Sweet Greyson came to us from Hillsborough County Animal Services. He was taken in with a stray with severe Demodex, but not to worry! He’s all healed! This sweet little 7-month-old is around 40lbs and is an all around sweetheart. Unlike most puppies, Greyson is a lazy little guy! He enjoys cuddling, laying on the couch, and peaceful walks....until there’s a lizard nearby! You can see a whole different side of this guy chasing some lizards in the yard! Greyson currently lives in a foster home with two other dogs and is working on getting to know some cats!
Flynn may be a bit grey, but his charming personality would have you believing he was a much younger dog! Flynn came to us from Friends of the Chipley Animals who had put up an urgent plea after hurricane Michael that they needed to move all their current residents to make room for incoming dogs. They asked, we answered, and to Hillsborough County Flynn came.
Flynn is dog friendly and is working on his manners, after liking spending his whole life outside he is adjusting to life in a home and is making progress with his house breaking! Flynn did test HW positive but is currently undergoing treatment and is available as a foster to adopt dog while he completes his treatment.
A perfect gentleman Flynn is very sweet, good with children, and is always in a good mood. Typical for the breed, when there is a smell in the air, his little hound nose will follow, so it will be best for Flynn to have a secure back yard.
Last week we came across a video of Baby on theThe Furry Friends of Manatee County Animal Services Facebook page. A scared girl who was just shaking in her kennel and wanted to disappear. Our hearts automatically broke for her. She was quickly transported up to our rescue and is enjoying her time in foster. She has quickly come out of her shell, making friends with the calmer dogs in the house, and spending time cuddling on couches that are much too small for her. Baby is working on her manners such as “sit”, walking on a leash, and being housebroken. She is a quick learner! Unfortunately whoever had baby previously did not take care of her in the way she deserved and she is heartworm positive. Not to worry, she will be healed up in no time!
The smile that graces a senior dogs face when they realize they are safe.
In case you haven’t noticed yet, we absolutely love senior dogs, so when one of our fosters saw Sookie listed online and fell in love, we said of course! At 8-10 years old Sookie had likely had the same home her whole life until she found herself at the shelter when her family couldn’t keep her anymore. She was adopted not once, but twice, and still found herself on the euthanasia list due to a hematoma in her ear. Her ear has since been treated and she is doing great in her foster home. She enjoys spending time with her foster family, including their toddler, and is good with calmer dogs. Sookie just loves to model for treats, she has sit and shake perfected and is an all around great girl!
Bright eyes and a graying muzzle, Flaco once found himself on the euthanasia list at Hillsborough County Pet Resource Center, a volunteer favorite, one of our fosters, Renee, took him home as an adopt to rehome. Though Flaco has loved living at Renee’s house and cuddling with the children, we offered to help find his forever home!
In 2016 when Flaco first found himself at the shelter he was heartworm positive and only 46lbs, since going to live with Renee he is officially heartworm negative and weighs in at a healthy 58lbs. This guy loves to run, play, and cuddle. Though Flaco loves humans of all sizes, he really wants all your attention to himself (and certainly deserves it) and would prefer to be an only pet.
Find a Penny, pick it up, all day long you’ll have good luck....
Penny is the sweetest new girl on the block who though, hasn’t always been very lucky, caught a break when she was running at large and found by a friend of one of our fosters. Though it is likely she had never been inside before, she is quickly learning the ropes.
Penny is 2-3 years old and 53lbs. She is learning how to be a real dog and learn her manners while in foster care. She is a happy go lucky girl who will make a great member of an active family
Dom is a 2 year old American Bully who came to us from Hillsborough County. As a former backyard breeder dog, he has lived most of his life in a kennel outside and unfortunately got heartworms. In addition to his heartworms he suffered from a pulmonary edema brought on by heat stroke, though his condition was treatable, the shelter was not the best place for him to recover and he quickly ended up on the euth list. Our rescue had already pulled another member of his pack, Gizmo, and we just couldn’t leave Dom there to die! He deserved to live a plush life of blankets, cuddles, and lots and lots of treats! Dom is currently in a foster home in the Tampa, Florida area where he is preparing to undergo his heartworm treatment. He is an absolute sweetheart who is a bit timid at first but quickly warms up and loves to cuddle. Keep your eyes open for this guy, his watermelon sized head is one you won’t want to miss!
Looking for a new companion to take to the park, the beach, or on a nice long hike? We have the girl for you! This pint sized bully is a happy go lucky 40lb love bug who loves adventures and everyone she meets! Patty came to New Life Dog Rescue as a medical plea. A dog with severe demodicosis, a treatable non contagious mange. Her skin was so raw and bleeding that as soon as we met her we knew we werent leaving her at the shelter. Shortly after leaving the shelter she came down with a serious case of pneumonia and we werent even sure she was going to survive. But little Patty is a fighter and overcame her battle with her skin issue and pneumonia. She is now ready to find a home of her own. Patty is a 1 year old staffordshire terrier mix. She is only 40lbs and is full of energy, Patty would do best in an active home that understands she needs exercise and mental stimulation. We have been working on teaching her the basics like leash manners, sit, sit pretty, and down. She is a quick learner! Patty loves attention, being cuddled and anything that has to do with the water! If you're swimming she is too!
