NOTES :    
Sharpie is up to date on all of his shots, neutered, heartworm negative, and has no special needs except for a fenced yard…… and someone to love him.

About this Pei : 
Sharpie is an incredibly handsome boy. His coat is beautiful!!  He needs someone who will guide him in training. He already knows how to sit and will lean on you so that he can be petted. He was found near a busy street trying to find food scraps and was very underweight. His coat was not in good shape, and he needed help. A very kind and caring person stopped, and Sharpie jumped into her car.   From that point, his rescuer took him to the vet to make sure he was okay, and then made sure he was cared for. He gained weight and became a very handsome dog. His rescuer wanted to keep him, but her own dog would not accept another male in her home. All he needs now is someone to love him and give him the assurance that he will not be alone again……..


As the holidays arrive, we welcome little Jezebel to the rescue.

She is blind in one eye and the other eye is not great. She is weak on her legs and this may be simply from her age and a need for more exercise. She CAN hear if you raise your voice and say her name. She will be seeing a vet soon so we can get more information about her health status. She is sweet and quiet….. Having a nice bed and food is essentially all that she wants at the moment. She does have a good appetite, and hopefully, we can get her a bit stronger so that she can get around better.

A quick update: Two weeks have gone by and Jezebel is feeling much better. Her face looks much better and she looks happy!!!

About this Pei : 
Quincy is being fostered in a home with other dogs and gets along fine with them. He likes to play but is not overactive. He would do well in a home with another dog as he enjoys the company. He is also a cuddler and will assume that your bed is his to share……he will sleep on the floor but prefers being close to his humans!!!

UTD on shots, Heartworm positive, Microchipped, Neutered. Sammy is undergoing slow kill heartworm treatment due to his advanced age.

About this Pei :
Samurai, “Sammy” for short, came into rescue after being found as a stray in Orlando, FL.  Those who found him took him in and provided for his short-term care but were unable to keep him long-term so reached out for help with him and FSPR answered their call.

Sammy is an older boy with arthritis in his hips, he is also heartworm positive, and may have some hearing loss due to chronic ear infections.  Sammy requires medications on a daily basis for management of his arthritis pain and is receiving treatment for his heartworms, as well.  He did have ear infections upon initial vet examination upon coming into rescue and was treated for those.  Due to Sammy’s need for long-term medical treatments, donations are much appreciated so we can continue to provide for whatever care he needs.

Sammy’s foster mom says he is a very sweet old guy and he gets along well with her other dogs.  He has learned the household routine and is fitting in nicely with the pack.

Please consider being a Guardian Angel for Sammy as he will likely remain in the care of FSPR until he crosses the rainbow bridge.  If you would like to adopt Sammy to allow him to live the remainder of his life with you, please complete an adoption application.
