Laverne and Shirley

They're like book ends!! They're shar pei mixes, like my Yoda, who is a wonderful girl. Hope someone can give them a home.

Looking for two lovely ladies!!!??? Well there are two waiting for you in Riverview, which is in the Tampa area.  Meet Laverne and Shirley!


In February 2008 the Santa Rose County Shelter in Milton found Laverne and Shirley. These two beautiful ladies were strays wondering the streets. The shelter contacted Florida Shar-Pei Rescue but because they were not purebreds they would not be able to take them in.  Instead Laverne and Shirley were taken from the shelter and they stayed in a Shar-Pei facility till December 2008.


At the end of the 2008, the facility wanted Laverne and Shirley moved. So, Shar-Pei Rescue discovered Camp Bow Wow. The camp was contacted and they said yes to fostering as well as looking for new families for these two girls. So Laverne and Shirley were transported down to the new facility in December 2008.  The move was a shock for them since they had adjusted to the first location. At the new location Shar-Pei rescue has provided fees for the monthly heart-worm and flea preventatives as well as for updating the shots. 


It is sad to say but there has been no interest in these ladies. In April Shar-Pei rescue was told that they needed to move Laverne and Shirley. Since they were a mix they still could not be taken into Shar-Pei rescue.  The pups cannot go back to the shelter, they cannot stay at the foster camp…they need a HOME.


Laverne and Shirley were and still are lonely. They are loosing weight, not eating properly and need to be in a home environment. They need a loving home, a family that cares and will give them attention and lots of patience. These young ladies have lost hope. They have lost confidence and trust…..they are very scared that they will be alone for life.



These two lovely ladies are patiently waiting for you to come visit and see if you make a perfect match.  Labrador Retriever Rescue of Florida is working to find the perfect family or families for these lovely ladies. They have only had each other through all of this and we would like them to be adopted together but this is not mandatory.


If you are interested in meeting Laverne and/or Shirley call 1-866-464-5227, please listen to the entire message. Do not press any numbers till the end of the message ….then press 0 and leave a message.


These dogs are in need please open your hearts and home.
