Meet the Real Shelter Dogs of Florida … And They’re All Adoptable!

Move over Pitbull, these dogs are Miami’s biggest new stars!

By Stacy Lenz

Welcome to Miami — the place that launched a thousand pop culture masterpieces: muse to Will Smith and LMFAO, inspiration for Pitbull’s entire opus, and the namesake city of The Real Housewives of Miami. Sadly, we cannot bring you any new installments of models, wives of plastic surgeons and, of course, Mama Elsa mixing it up in the sunshine state, but we can bring you adorable dogs that will equally earn a place in your heart (but for totally different reasons). 

Today’s installment of The Real Shelter Dogs brings us sweet dog-friends from Paws 4 You Rescue. Paws 4 You Rescue is a non-profit, volunteer, animal rescue organization based in Miami, Florida. Their top priority is to save animals from euthanasia at Miami-Dade Animal Services and provide all the animals in their care with safety at their shelter, professional medical care, lots of love and hope for a future forever home.

And now meet your Real Shelter Dogs, complete with opening credits-worthy taglines!

“I always act like a puppy, but I think like a Boss." - Boss

Hi everyone, I am a young Boxer and Labrador mix. My outside persona makes me look like a boss because I'm big and strong, but inside I am a big baby. Even though my previous owners didn’t want me, I still love people! What I need is a buddy to be goofy with; will you be my special human friend?

"I'm not a model, but I am a model pet." - Scruffy

Hi, I am a Labrador mix puppy. Here at Paws I’ve met lots of friends, we play, play and play — and it's so much fun! I just love all my human and doggie friends, but what I would love the most is my own family. One that can teach me tricks, and love me furrrrever! They say you don't know love until you adopt a dog, let me show you that kind of love and lets be happy together!

"I'm living the American Dream, one shoe at a time." - Stark

Woof Woof! My name is Stark, I'm a miniature Pinscher and Chihuahua mix puppy. I got lots of personality, but there is nothing I love more than playing. Oh boy I can play all day! Toys, shoes (don't worry I don't like the taste of new ones), humans, and even other doggies are a few of my favorite things! I'm a tad small as you can see in my picture but believe me that won’t stop me from doing anything! Adopt me, I am eager to give you all my love!

Dogs may come younger, but they don't come cuter." - Holly

Hi everyone, my name is Holly; I am a senior Schnauzer dog. My owner who had me for a very long time abandoned me, and now I am looking for a family to spend the best years of my life with. I am very friendly, a bit shy at first but once I get a good whiff I am the sweetest. Do you know a family I can spend my golden years with?

"I love cats, I love people, I love it all." - Cleopatra

Hello friends, my name is Cleopatra and I am a two-year-old German Shepherd. At Paws4You, I love to play with my fellow dog buddies. I have a comfy bed (which I would like to take to my new home) and I also get an ego boost regularly. I would love to have a special connection with a human or a big family. I love children and even cats (weird huh?). Come and visit me at Paws 4 You and I can show you my beauty, inside and out!

"Seasons may change, but beautiful ears never go out of style." - Dizzy

Hey pal! My name is Dizzy, I’m a Chihuahua mix doggie. I'm really sweet with all humans, and they all love me! Everyone loves my ears, I would say I’m completely unique, not only my ears! I need a family, if you know one that needs a sweet small dog, with beautiful ears, send them my way!
