Read on to learn more about Armando, Bondi, Niko, Clover, Frutee, Kona, Kristina, and Missy and how to adopt each of these pets.

Bondi Beach

Waldo’s Rescue Pen

Name: Bondi Beach

Breed: Mixed

Weight: 45 pounds

Age: 2.5

Ideal Home: Bondi would love a home with a yard she could run around in, chasing her beloved tennis balls. She definitely feels safest at home with her people, so she’d love a home that was in a quiet area away from the city.

Kids: Yes but older kids are more suitable.

Dogs: Yes

Cats: Yes

Crate Trained: Yes

House Trained: Working on it

Other training: Bondi knows “sit” and “lay down.” She can also be easily redirected with a simple “no” or “stop”.

Leash Manners: Bondi does great on her leash with a gentle leader, but she will occasionally bark at other dogs she sees. She’s great at being redirected on the leash, especially when there’s a treat involved.

Personality: Bondi is an incredibly sweet, loyal, special girl. She was surrendered to a shelter in Tennessee by her family, so while she’s settling in she might have an accident or bark in her crate a little when you leave the house at first, but she’s made so much progress since she came into her foster home.

How long Bondi Beach has been in foster: Since December 2023.

Waldo’s Rescue Pen

Name: Central World Plaza (a.k.a Niko)

Breed: Mixed

Weight: 35 pounds

Age: 1

Ideal Home: Niko would do best in a home where his parents can take him on long walks or to the dog park a couple of times a day so he can get out some of his puppy energy. He’d love a backyard to run around in, but definitely not a requirement.

Kids: Yes

Dogs: Yes

Cats: Unknown

Crate Trained: Yes

House Trained: Yes

Other training: Niko knows several cues and commands and is a quick learner. He lets his foster parents wipe his paws after walks and is food-motivated. He can sometimes get a little mouthy out of playfulness but is easily redirected.

Leash Manners: Very good and continuing to improve.

Personality: Niko will put a smile on anyone’s face. He’s playful, cuddly, and incredibly sweet. You’ll easily win him over with belly rubs and some affection. Niko also enjoys a good nap and will happily play by himself when his foster parents are preoccupied.

How long Niko has been in foster: Since December 2023.

Clover

Pupstarz Rescue

Name: Clover

Breed: Domestic Shorthair

Weight: 15 pounds

Age: 7

Ideal Home: Clover is a very good boy who yearns for attention and likes to explore.

Cats: Yes

Personality: Clover is a big goofball who still has a ton of playful kitten energy. He loves to make anything into a toy (even your spare change) and thrives on goading his sister (Missy) into chasing him, but he knows when a few hours need to be spent on a good nap. He loves a treat and a scratch, and while timid at first, has really blossomed into a great companion. 

How long Clover has been in foster: Clover has been in foster care for eight months along with his sister, Missy.

Name: Frutee

Breed: Mixed

Weight: 8 pounds

Age: 4 months

Ideal Home: Frutee would love an active family that lives in the city or suburbs. She loves going to the park off-leash twice a day, playing with her foster sister, and picking the kids up from school.

Kids: Yes but ages 8 and older

Dogs: Yes

Cats: Unknown

Crate Trained: Yes

House Trained: Working on it

Leash Manners: Frutee walks beautifully on a leash with minimal pulling.

Personality: Frutee is a sweet, gentle dog who loves being home and cuddling with her foster family or foster dog sister. She does have puppy energy, so at least two exercise walks or off-leash sessions in the park each day are needed to burn off that energy. In the house, she loves to lay in the sun and chew on her bones.

How long Frutee has been in foster: Since January 2024.

Name: Missy

Breed: Domestic Shorthair

Weight: 9 pounds

Age: 9

Ideal Home: Missy is a big fan of quality time, especially when it involves the cozy embrace of a human bed.

Cats: Yes

Personality: Missy is a petite sweetie pie lady. She is the calmer one between her and her adoptive brother, Clover, and she’s so gentle. She appreciates her alone time to snooze and lounge, but she will play with Clover when she needs to get in a few good skippity paps. When she’s up and about, she’s very curious and wants to explore and sniff you and her surroundings. Missy loves pets, being brushed, and purring so hard that she drools.

How long Missy has been in foster: Missy has been in foster care for 8 months along with her brother, Clover.
