From Foster Mom/Intake Volunteer Jennifer: I drove to Animal Control Tuesday, 11/25, to spring a tiny black/tan chihuahua. The workers "accidentally" brought out the blonde chi who was dropped off with her - both surrended as "strays". This one was much older, has cataracts in both eyes, is missing most of her teeth, and has a bum ankle/foot - likely from a former break that healed wrong.
She was shaking so I wrapped her up in the towel I had brought in and put her on her back like a baby, she started kissing me and making the cutest little smiles! Who knows how she ended up here...she is absolutely perfect and I immediately fell for her.
After about 20-minutes of sorting out the "mix-up" - they said, "you could take her too" and that's exactly what I did! Thank you Laurie and Jan for saying YES! and for giving these girls a better life. We all thoroughly enjoyed their freedom ride!
As for the black/tan one...she's scared and likes to cuddle with blondie but is showing great signs of coming out of her shell! I got a few kisses on the hand in the car and Jan (the chi whisperer) was greeted with kisses when I dropped them off to her.
They'll both be available for adoption once vetted and having spent sufficient time in foster care. You can ALWAYS make a donation to help with their - and so many other's - medical expenses. Please? THANK YOU!!!

Save a Dog on Death Row!
Please help us save dogs on Death Row at local Animal Controls. These are dogs that can't be adopted out directly from Animal Control, mainly for medical reasons. When they can't be adopted, they need a rescue to save them when their time runs out. These pups desperately need our help, we are their last hope!

Florida Little Dog Rescue Group rescues dogs from all over the state of Florida, but our main focus is the Central Florida area. Our volunteers live anywhere from Tallahassee to Tampa, but almost all of our dogs are fostered in the Orlando area. We are 100% volunteer-based, which means no overhead or salary costs. Your donation is used directly for dog care. We do not receive government funds. We are entirely supported by charitable donations.
We ensure that each dog is spayed/neutered, vaccinated, tested for heartworms and other parasites, examined by a vet and treated for any known conditions prior to adoption. All known medical information is fully disclosed to new families. While awaiting adoption, the dogs live in foster homes that provide love, patience and TLC to the pups! A pup's stay in foster care could vary from several days to several weeks, depending upon the dog's conditions and needs. Unlike shelter or kennel living, fostering the pups in a home environment allows us to personally evaluate each dog for behavior and temperament issues. We are able to see how they interact and react to other animals and children, if they are house trained, like to go for walks, play ball, etc. and that makes it easier to know what type of home/family would be best suited for them!
Please note, we are not a shelter. We do not have a kennel or facility that you can visit and see all the dogs. Each dog is fostered in an individual home. We do rescue out of our private homes and in our spare time. So, you cannot come visit our dogs until you have gone through the application and interview process and we have contacted you about scheduling a visit. We do not have set "hours" and we answer all calls and emails as quickly as we can!
