Kellie is a 1.5 year old dark sable male who was originally purchased in Europe by a Law Enforcement agency but did not perform up to their expectations so he is now looking for a forever home.
We are looking for a WORKING DOG type home only, meaning a dog trainer, a K9 handler or someone who does dock diving, agility or some type of sports with their animals.
Kellie has a high energy drive and has never lived in a house so he needs a home with someone who will help him transition from what he was trained for to being a house dog.
He is non reactive to other dogs at the facility but has not been cat tested.
His adoption fee is $250



Saved from Thomasville Humane Society on 11/24/2018 Maggie is a 10 month old cream German Shepherd who was an owner surrender to the shelter prior to her coming to our rescue. She is a sweet little girl, on a smaller side but she is currently underweight and not fully grown. Maggie is a little unsure of new people and new surroundings, but once you give her a treat, you will have a best friend for life. At this time, she does not take treats from your hand gently but it's something that we are working on and she's making progress. Maggie has a silly and affectionate personality, she follows her foster parents to the couch and dives into their lap for snuggles. She is in a foster home in New Smyrna Beach, which she shares with 3 other German Shepherds. We do not know how she is around cats. She will do fine with well behaved children. She is not a fan of a crate when left alone for 8 hours a day and she will try to get out of it so a family that is willing to work on crate training or one that is home more than an average work day would be the best fit for her. She has had an occasional accident in the house since her arrival so housebreaking is also work in progress. Maggie's adoption fee is $300


Pandora is a 1 year old panda German Shepherd who was originally found as a stray and ended up at Manatee County Animal Services, prior to coming in to our rescue. She is a new arrival and she is pending a vet visit. Severely underweight and needs some time to put on a few pounds before she can get spayed.
Pandora is located in a foster home in Ormond Beach, she has a super sweet and playful personality, enjoys being with people and is very well behaved. She is also good with other dogs of all sizes but we have not cat tested her. She is currently at 52lbs but severely underweight so we are waiting for her to gain some more weight before she can get spayed and ready for adoption. In the meantime, she will be available for meets and greets to approved families.
Her adoption fee is $250.



Drego is a 1.5 year old sable male who was originally purchased in Europe by a law enforcement dog training company in hopes that he would become a drug detection dog, however, shortly after his arrival in the US, they noticed that the tip of his tail was injured so he underwent a tail docking surgery. A few weeks later, he had to have another surgery to remove another piece of his tail due to incorrect healing so today, Drego is almost healed but has only half a tail, which he wags all the time :-)
He is a high drive and high strong dog who is already fully vetted but not yet neutered. Since he resides at the facility and not in a foster home, he is only available on a foster to adopt basis meaning we have to secure a forever home for him, and once he is neutered, then we can finalize his adoption.
Due to Drego's intensive personality, we recommend a home with no small children (although he is super friendly) and only with a family who has experience with working type dogs. He is not a good candidate for a service dog but will do excellent in agility glasses, barn hunting classes or daily jogging with his person. He is crate trained, unknown is he's housebroken at this time and he loves to play ball. He has been around multiple dogs at the facility, but has not had a nose to nose introduction due to his healing process.
Drego's adoption fee is $250.
