Gramps

Gramps is 12 years old but you'd never know it. This cutie is very spry and doesn't act his age at all - in fact, when his foster mom gets home, he gets so excited that he runs around the house like crazy and runs laps around the backyard like a race horse! He is a gentle soul and so sweet. He gets along great with the other dogs in the house, large and small. Gramps is one of those special senior dogs that is wonderful to have in the house. He is being fostered by Tammy in Jacksonville, FL.

Gus is 6 years old and weighs 80 lbs.; he is housebroken, crate trained and knows basic commands. He needs a little training to master the leash, but we are working on that!

He plays with his foster brothers (four legged and two legged) quite regularly. Buzz loves to go for walks and enjoys car rides too. He is waiting patiently for a family that will love him, spoil him rotten and care for him as one of their own.

Buzz is 9-10 years old and weighs 58 lbs. He is housebroken, crate trained and walks well on a leash. He is good with other dogs and great with kids. If you would like more information, please complete our online adoption application today. Buzz is being fostered by Amber.

McCoy



Good boy McCoy! This pretty boy is a gentle soul, with great kindness. He is quiet and calm and very well mannered. McCoy enjoys lounging on his dog bed, eating treats and hanging with the family relaxing. He really enjoys attention and gives hugs as if to say "thanks!" McCoy also enjoys car rides and walks. He is an excellent companion and such a great boy to have around - his foster family will be sad to see him go, but very happy for his forever family!

McCoy came to us heartworm positive. We see this a lot in rescue, but he had a severe case and subsequent kidney damage. It's likely he'll need lifelong medication to keep his blood pressure in check. An adopter needs to know that his medication regimen will cost around $100/mo. ($40 for meds and $60 for food). He will need to be on a low protein/salt diet for life as well. A naturally "chill" personality, we're thinking it's because he knows he was rescued and finally getting the care he's deserved.

McCoy is 3 years old and currently weighs 60 lbs., but does need to put on some weight (about 10 lbs.). He is housebroken (needs a little attention at night, though), crate trained, walks well on a leash and knows a few basic commands. He is great with the other dogs in the house, large and small and good with kids.

****UPDATE MAY 2015****

As of his last vet visit, McCoy has graduated from medical hold and is ready for adoption! A couple things for potential adopters to be aware of, McCoy will be on two blood pressure pills for the rest of his life. He also will require specific "kidney" diet dog food (low salt, low protein). McCoy does require crating when left alone (he will otherwise find ways to express his displeasure that you have left). A reinforced crate is best that he can not break free from!

McCoy is housebroken, good on a leash, but most importantly, gets along with everyone and everything! He is a super happy guy that loves to play and to just be a part of the family in any environment.

If you would like more information on McCoy, please complete our online adoption application today. He is being fostered by Shae and Daniel in Jacksonville, FL.

Rookie

Rookie is not a rookie any longer. Thanks to the love and direction of his foster family he is going pro. His "boxer" pride and confidence is obvious immediately by his high head position and his eye contact.

Rookie would excel in a home with no other animals and older children. This goofy boxer boy is smart, learns easily and listens well to commands. He loves his toys, but will drop them when told. Rookie is loving, likes to give kisses and will sit in front of you for a good petting session. Rookie enjoys car rides too! He is 2 years old and weighs 52 lbs.; he is housebroken & crate trained.

Hollis

Hollis is the perfect southern gent in every way- impeccable manners, good with all dogs and cats, housebroken and trustworthy while you are away without being crated. Hollis is nine years old and although he will fool you because he is quite intelligent and has learned many cues, he can only hear select sounds.

Hollis is very affectionate and loving in addition to being handsome as can be. Like most older boxers, he has plenty of spunk and is playful; but when you are done, so is he! He is the kind of dog that can go anywhere and do anything without pre-planning or reservation. Hollis is being fostered by Jenn and Michael in Tallahassee.

Chelsea

Chelsea is a small Boxer girl who will probably have a healthy weight of no more than 45 pounds. While she does have some graying on her muzzle (only makes her dignified looking!) and probably some arthritis, her teeth indicate she is around 9 years of age. She is rebounding from near-starvation rapidly and seems very happy with her new situation. She gets along well with the two resident male Boxers in her foster family and has shown little interest in the cat. At Christmas time, she was surrounded by children and although she had only been there a few short days, she handled the chaos well. She is friendly, very sweet and anxious to please. She has caught on well to her foster family's expectations and "pack rules" and seems only to want comfort, food and affection. Not necessarily in that order-start with food!

Chelsea is being fostered by Trula in Tallahassee, FL.

Shelbe

Shelbe is an incredible petite little boxer, wishing with all of her heart that someone will make her their forever girl. 8 year old Shelbe was dropped off after her former owner was done using her as a breeder, she is thriving in her foster home.

Voted most popular pup in the complex she loves to greet every human she meets on her walks and gets along great with the other dogs who live there. She sees plenty of cats on her evening walks but pays no attention to them. Good Girl Shelbe! She has enjoyed going for a run on the beach but is not yet brave enough to jump in the water.

Her foster mom describes her as spunky, playful, super smart and a good listener who loves to smell flowers.

She was crated the first week she was in her foster home, but not since then as she never has accidents or chews on anything she shouldn’t.

Shelbe is being fostered by Aleta & Mitch in Miramar.

Brodie

Brodie became a BARC dog with a little help from his friends at Pilots N Paws. Brodie is a lovable 65 lb. boy who is laid back and has a time tested calm disposition. When Brodie made it to his foster home, he immediately fit right in! He might be 7 years old, but you’d never know by his youthful outlook on life. He is extremely loyal and will stay by your side day and night. He follows his foster family from from room to room as they go about their daily routine and is perfectly content to find a place to lay down and watch until they move to the next room. But don’t let his relaxed attitude fool you! He also loves to go outside and run around the yard with his little sister and play chase! Brodie enjoys walks on the leash, and is very well behaved with little to no pulling.

He does great with the family's 3 year old boxer and 6 and 8 year old Chihuahuas. He does well with other dogs regardless of size or age. Brodie would be a welcome addition to any household. He is being fostered by Andrew & Tristin in Jacksonville, FL.

Note: Julius has been diagnosed with a medical condition that requires meds which will need to be continued throughout his lifetime.

Meatball

Meat is a very active, goofy and lovable 4 year old boy, who would prefer being the only dog in the house. He enjoys playing outside chasing butterflies, bees and dragonflies. One of his favorite hobbies is to run around the backyard and chase the shadows of birds who fly overhead. He's like a big kid in a dogs body. He will eagerly go for long walks or runs on the leash but sometimes needs to be reminded to stay calm and not get ahead of you.

He is awesome with children and will snuggle up with them at night. He may be close to 90 pounds but thinks he's a tiny lap-dog who sees no problem snuggling up on your lap while you watch TV on the couch. Meat is intrigued by light reflections and shadows and will try to catch them if he sees them in the house. He just loves to play. He also likes to talk and will be very vocal with you when he is excited, happy or wants to get your attention.

Vito

Note: Vito is unable to see, most likely due to a serious infection or illness that he had as a younger dog. He will need over the counter liquid tear drops in both eyes, twice per day in order to keep his eyes from deteriorating and becoming painful for him (he takes the drops easily).

Though Vito is blind, it doesn't slow him down a bit! He’s really just like any other good-natured dog. He does pick his way around more carefully than other dogs in order to avoid hitting stationary objects, and he needs a little guidance while on a leash for the same reason.

Vito has learned to take his foster home's stairs one at a time both up and down and has learned the word “step.” Even so, his foster family thinks he’d be best suited to a one story home to avoid an excited tumble down. Otherwise, he plays w/toys, shows affection, and eats and drinks just like any other dog. He’s a happy guy!" Vito is extremely gentle, sweet natured, playful and loves his toys. He will entertain himself for a long periods of time, particularly with any toy that makes noise.

Vito is 3-4 years old and weighs 78 lbs. We are working on his housebreaking skills and he is doing very well. He does not like the crate, but does well when left outside it. He knows basic commands and enjoys walks (with a little guidance).

Vito is wonderful with other dogs, big and small. He is very affectionate with them and tries to lick their faces. If you would like more information about Vito, please complete our online adoption application today. He is being fostered by Allison and Jerry.

Ellie May

Hi there! My name is Ellie May and am full of personality, so the couch potato life is not for me. I love to run and jump and play!

I am great at listening, but I need a strong leader. I'm so eager to play I get distracted, so I really need to know someone is in charge. I would be super happiest in my new home as the only dog with all the human attention.

I am so good too that I don't need to be crated. I'm not some silly puppy, I'm 8 years old and I know things! (And I don't chew-up stuff.) I know how to sit, shake, lie down, and I'm getting really good at stay. I have one quirk though: thunderstorms scare me. I just can't help it, and when the thunder booms, you'll find me under the nearest bed or table that is closest to you. All-in-all I’m very spunky and cheerful, so if you are too I hope you'll come and meet me!
