Special Pups Looking for Special Homes

Grover

Breed: Lhasa Apso

Size: 10 lbs

Age: 1 year

Rescue: May 10, 2017

This young boy is certainly a conundrum!  At just a year old he is petrified of collars, leashes and harnesses to the point of aggression.  He has a bite history both before surrender and here in rescue.  We have found some antecedents and he is doing better.
He lives in a exercise pen and is now able to spend more time outside the pen socializing with others dogs! He is gradually doing better... we would welcome qualified dog trainers as adopters only at his point! 

Gibbs

Breed: Chihuahua/Terrier

Size: 6 lbs

Age: 3 years

Rescue: June 1, 2015


Meet little Gibbs! Gibbs is a very cute little 5 pound boy who loves walking in circles, playing with his little toys and his friends! Gibbs has some very special needs! He is developmentally disabled and does have seizures. He catches on after a little bit and is so capable of building a bond with his person. He loves to greet his foster mom and is very affectionate. This affection does take time to develop.  Gibbs is up to date on his vaccines and on heartworm preventative. Gibbs is on medication for his seizure activity and is responding nicely.

Belle

Breed: Chihuahua Mix

Size: 7 lbs (used to be more!)

Age: 8

Rescue: April 15, 2015


Belle is a wonderful little girl - loving and sweet. Belle discovered play and grass at her foster's and has done very well with other dogs and cats! Belle came to us as an emergency with compromising health issues. She was extremely overweight and was being given way too much insulin for her diabetic condition. 
Although we had hoped to get her off of the insulin, we were not completely successful. However, her foster was successful in helping Belle lose her excess weight so her insulin could be regulated to the correct amount. Belle will always need her insulin 2x daily so she is a special needs girl! (First 2 photos are from before she lost all her weight!!!)

 Molly

Breed: Chihuahua

Size: 6 lbs

Age: a very spry 12ish

Rescue: Sept. 23, 2016

Little Molly is looking for a comfy lap to spend her golden years. She does have separation anxiety and would need to be contained in a safe spot when left alone. She is quite the escape artist if left unattended.

Special Pups in Fur-Ever Foster Homes

Hubert

Breed: Min Pin mix

Size: 10 lbs

Age: 12-15 years

Rescue: May 10, 2017

Hubert was a surprise arrival for us out of Pasco County AC.  We went to pick up one dog and came home with 2 completely different dogs.  This poor little man had a large tumor and we just couldn't leave him behind.  Hubert is in a special loving home and we are over the moon happy for him!

Francis

Breed: Chihuahua

Size: 6 lbs

Age: 9-10 years

Rescue: 2011

Francis is our "ghost".  He came to us several years ago terrified of everything.  Even after all these years he still is hesitant of human touch but has been known to startle foster mom by crawling on her belly as she sleeps!  Francis will stay with Limbo for the rest of his life and we are okay with that!

ZEUS

Breed: Chihuahua

Size: 7 lbs

Age: 19-20 years

Rescue: Spring 2014

Have you met Zeus? This little man is 20 y/o and still going strong. He was recently featured in an article about a Senior Prom held for senior pups in our area needing special homes.  




Tinker Bell & Angel

Breed: Chihuahuas

Size:  8 lbs

Age: approx 20 years

Rescue: Spring 2014

These two girls spent their entire lives in a small shed, having puppy after puppy.  The authorities in Jacksonville shut the back yard breeder down and the rest is history.  We affectionately call them the sea hags...at 20 years old, missing half their fur and most of their teeth they still sure are cute! These two are in a forever foster home that we will continue to sponsor for as long as they see fit to stay with us!

Bambi

Breed: Chihuahua

Size: 6 lbs

Age: 10 years

Rescue: Early 2016

Bambi is a forever foster, meaning Limbo will cover the cost of her care for the rest of her life. ❤️ When she came to us 2 years ago it was discovered she had tumors on all her breasts due to over breeding. After enduring two separate surgeries, a cancerous throat tumor was found. She doesn't seem to notice and we are just fine with that.
