Broward Animal Care's Last Chance Dogs

Five dogs at Broward County Animal Care are considered "last call" and are in need of urgent adoption or rescue.

Bard is a very happy, active dog, but he calms down after a good romp and walk! Bard was originally found as a stray in Dania Beach and quickly got an adopter, but unfortunately that person changed their mind, so Bard is still waiting for that special someone!  Bard would do best in a home that loves activity as much as he does and is able to give him plenty of exercise! 

Patrick’s Christmas Eve was not so festive this year as his owners went away and left him behind to be fed by a friend.  When Patrick got out of the yard and wound up at Animal Care, he hoped someone would come to claim him, but this poor fellow is still waiting!  Patrick is a high-energy fellow who needs lots of exercise and would do best in a home without small children--he is just so exuberant, he’s liable to knock someone down with all his affection!  Patrick is a really handsome guy, and very eager to please so if he can find the right new family he is sure to make them very happy. 

Zeus and his buddy, Tots, are very obedient, well-behaved dogs.  They don’t really like other animals but love each other.  They came to Animal Care when their owner had to move away and both are housebroken and know basic commands.  Perfect as a pair, they could also be separated if someone fell in love with just one or the other.  They both just really need the perfect adopter to give them another chance at a great life!

Tots and her buddy, Zeus, appear two of a kind.  When their owner moved away, he couldn’t take them with him but really wanted them both to have another chance for a happy life.  A home with room to spare for two needy dogs would be perfect, but both Tots and Zeus would be thrilled just to have a home of their own again at all.  Tots definitely doesn’t care for other dogs (except Zeus) but she is very obedient, house broken and knows basic commands, so she could fit in just perfectly in the right home. 

Daisy is a cute, calm little girl who loves back massages.  She was found hiding in a laundry room, dirty and greasy but has cleaned up to be a real beauty! Daisy could make some canine friends if introduced properly and taught how, but she seems not to have had much dog socialization in her previous life.  Help bring this quiet girl out of her shell so she can experience how fun life can be!
