Available for Adoption

Leo Chewmeister - Florida

Leo Chewmeister came from a kill shelter in Louisiana. He is about 3 months old and weighs a little over 6 pounds; we expect Leo (aka Chewy) to reach about 17 to 20 pounds when grown. We think Leo is a "Rocker"; a Rat Terrier-Cocker Spaniel mix. He has a relatively smooth coat, but has fuzz on his muzzle, along the edges of his ears, and on his feet. This may or may not thicken as he matures. Leo is 90% housebroken, will use a doggie door to go out most of the time, and has kept a clean, dry crate since he got to his foster home in mid-August. He loves to play with the other puppies at his foster home, and to lick his fostermom's ankles while she's on the computer. Leo also loves to be held and snuggled. To see more pictures

Dookie Martuchi - Florida

Little Dookie Martuchi was left at a kill shelter in Louisiana at the tender age of 4 weeks, weighing only 2.5 pounds. He had sarcoptic mange - a very contagious condition caused by a nasty little skin mite. Dookie is now 12 weeks old and completely free of mites; his hair has grown back, and he's ready to find a family of his very own. Dookie is already housebroken with a doggie door and keeps a clean, dry crate at night. He loves to get (and give) kisses & cuddles, and plays well with the other dogs and puppies in his foster home. Dookie weighs about 5 pounds, and will most likely reach 10 to 12 pounds by the time he's finished growing. For additional photos of Dookie please check

Little Mister Martuchi is full of hope and confidence, and looking for a family who needs someone to hang out with, get kisses from, and go on long walks with. He's waiting as patiently as he can, but please hurry if you think you might be his family!
