Meet Flo! She’s had a few speed bumps in her short life, but we’re making sure it’s only smooth sailing from here on out. She’s suffering from Demodex mange, a non contagious mite that destroys the hair follicle which causes loss of fur and skin irritation. Luckily, it’s totally treatable and she’s already on the mend. We’ll be updating pictures as she grows into the furry little puppy we know she’ll be. It’s like the rescue dog version of The Voice…we’re watching this little personality come to life without knowing what she’ll grow up to look like.
As far as personality goes, Florida is full of it. She’s sweet and opinionated, she’s sassy and cuddly, and she’s a quick study. We’re working on potty and crate training right now and she already knows how to sit. She loves to play with her foster siblings, toys, that loose string on your sweatshirt and pretty much anything that moves. She likes to weave between and rub up against your legs like a cat so you’ll get those hard to reach itchy spots. When she sleeps, she sleeps hard and her warm little body melts in to you. We’d literally pay to sleep as hard as this one.
As of 03/13/19 we’re estimating her to be 17 weeks old and she weighs 20 pounds. We’re searching for a forever family now, but won’t release her until her health improves. As you can see in her pictures, she came to us thin, malnourished and covered in open wounds. But don’t let that stop you from inquiring! If you feel Florida could be your next best friend we can have your application processed, your meet and greet and home check out of the way so when she’s healthy she can start her trial week with you right away.
We’re working closely with our vet as well as our friends at Earth Pets Natural Market to make sure Flo gets everything she needs to heal as quickly as possible.
- Most recent obsession, Jason Mamoa. She hopes to have hair like his one day.
- She thinks she’s in a lifelong game of tag
- Is counting down the days till she can finally wear her Lucy Lou’s collar. She’s over being the only one who’s running around naked.
