Chloe is a lovely and calm 8.5-year-old fawn Bouvier with a docked tail and natural ears. She is a stunning platinum blonde in the style of bombshells of yesterday with the sweetest disposition possible. Chloe gets along very well with other dogs and does not even mind sharing her bed, but she is stressed when other dogs want to engage in physical play, and if they continue she will hide from them. Likewise, small children make her uneasy. She is so kind-hearted she has even allowed her tiny 10 lb. foster sister to grab a treat from between her paws without any reaction except disappointment. But for that outstanding behavior, she was rewarded with two treats. Chloe is a low activity Bouv, who loves walks but does not necessarily do a lot of running around the yard. She is a quiet dog who can bark, but rarely does. She loves to be close to her human, being rubbed, scratched, and laying with her head in your lap or on your feet. Due to seizures, Chloe requires medication twice a day. Since her medication was adjusted a few months ago, she has not experienced a single seizure. She has met a cat and did not react, but no cats are living in the home. Chloe is spayed and has recently had a complete evaluation and requisite care at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine. Her maintenance medications will cost about $75 per month plus the cost of flea and heart-worm medications. If interested in adopting Chloe, please first complete an online application before contacting Marcia with your questions.

ADOPTION PENDING. Teddy is a neutered, black bouvier, around 120 pounds. He turns seven on October 6. Teddy arrived into his people's home when he was twelve weeks old. He is a big soft fluffy love who has been described as having "eyes that can read souls." He is pure love. Teddy is the biggest dog, but has no idea. He is not the alpha and can be pushed around very easily. He loves peanut butter, rides, and walks. He also loves bikes and needs to be walked in areas without bikes. He is kind and gentle and just wants to be part of the pack. He is anxious but gets excited quickly and frequently makes us laugh with his "bouvier bounce." He is not a chewer or a jumper. He does get nervous about going down stairs and although he can do it and does it every day, needs support and encouragement. He would do well in a single dog home or with one other dog who is alpha. He cannot be around cats at all. He will melt your heart immediately and deserves only the best! To be considered as an adopter, please fill out an application on line.

ADOPTION PENDING. Lily is a spayed, black bouvier, around ninety pounds. She turns seven on October 6. Lily came into her people's home when she was ten weeks old and stole their hearts immediately. They say she is by far the smartest dog they have ever known. She only had one accident in the house before becoming completely house trained. Lily loves to cuddle and be close to her people. She makes eye contact that will win you over in an instant. Lily loves to sleep, usually on her back with her four paws up in the air, but the one thing she loves more than sleeping is a long walk or hike. In areas without people, they can take her off leash. She does not run away and stays close by if you ask her to "stay local." Lily does have a very deep and scary bark which can startle people, but it is more of her way of telling them that she knows they are there. Once she knows you are ok with them and has smelled them she won't leave their side. She is not a chewer nor a jumper. She would do better in a single dog home. She tolerates her brothers but would prefer if she had the place to herself. She cannot be around cats at all. She is a little bit of a princess and has been my faithful friend and companion. She is a pure delight! To be considered as an adopter, please fill out an application on line. After completing an application, contact Sandy with your questions.

ADOPTION PENDING. Dusty will bond with you and become your best friend. He is a six year old, neutured, black bouvier around 104 pounds. He will turn seven in January. He arrived in his people's home when he was a ten week old puppy. Dusty loves to have a job and be doing something. He will frequently assign himself a job. He walks/ runs around the perimeter of our yard doing his daily "perimeter checks." He will pick a person and follow them everywhere, either in the house or outside. Several times he has walked directly behind us while we mow the entire lawn. He loves walks, rides, attention, and basically just being next to you. He has a strong personality and is much more obedient to an alpha person (like his human dad) rather than a softie (like his human mom). He knows the rules but will check you out to see if you will enforce them. If you do, he will respect you immediately. He does jump on some people. He does not chew. He stays very busy and loves having "a person." He would do best in a single dog house. He cannot be with cats. Dusty is absolutely wonderful on the leash and in public. He is a true companion.

Cosette (adoption pending)

ADOPTION PENDING. Update April: Cosette has made great strides since October. Being a Mill dog she had numerous hurdles to cross, with Housebreaking being at the top of the list. There was also some general suspicion of new people. Regarding the housebreaking the majority of the time she now lets you know when to let her out. If there are lots of distractions she will need to be led to the door on a lead to go outside. She became comfortable and secure in our home. As her confidence has grown she has been able share her attention with other dogs in the family. She loves being patted, brushed, and in general, touched. It takes her a bit to warm up to new people, especially males, but once she realizes she won't be hurt she is fine. Cozette loves walks, chasing squirrels, killing her squeaker toys, going for rides in the car and just being with "her people.". Despite Cosette's initial incarceration at a puppy mill she has evolved into a precious, affectionate, impish little girl. I call her my "Velcro girl" because she follows me everywhere and lays at my feet with her head or paw on my foot. I am amazed at how social she is for being a mill puppy! Her smoking grey coat with her black masque gives her a distinctive presence. She loves having her ears rubbed and her back scratched. She gets along well with the other dogs in the house, dying to play with them, but they are just too old to find her antics amusing! Cosette should go to a home without active children; she also seems to prefer women. She was never housebroken but we are working on that! Miss Cosette does not like to go out into the backyard unless I have her on lead. When I remove the lead she will take care of business and will race and bounce Bouvier style around the yard. I have her on a timed regimen to go because at this point she has not yet learned to let me know. However, she has not soiled her crate when I have left her there overnight, nor when I have left the house to run errands during the day. She has done some submissive wetting when I have put on her lead to take out to the back yard. She can also be a little unsure crossing the tile floor in my kitchen, which is between the living room and the back door. She possesses a strong prey drive directed at squirrels and cats. Loud noises and slamming doors frighten her. Cosette is a sweet girl, who makes every effort to please despite what she has had to endure in her young life. Cosette has her natural ears and a docked tail. She has been estimated to be 3 1/2 years old, but seems younger. She is just under standard in height and weighs less than 60lbs. She has a voracious appetite and has been making up for lost time! She is up to date on shots, spayed and Heartworm negative. She is being fostered in Amarillo,TX.
