 Adoptable Dogs 

George, a Yorkie mix
 
George is a 3-4 year old male Yorkie mix and he weighs about 8 pounds. George's foster mom says, "George is a sweet, happy and energetic little guy with a lot of love to give. He gets along with other dogs, but prefers to be with his humans either getting his belly rubbed, playing with a toy or just chilling on the couch. George loves people and he gets super excited when his humans get home or when people come to visit. He has such a hard time containing his happiness he will run around at your feet and sometimes nip at your clothes until you pay attention to him. 
 
We are working on it with him, but he would do better in a home without small children or elderly. He will bark a lot when his humans get home out of excitement, but other than that he is a pretty quiet boy. We are working on housetraining and he is doing well, but he will need a family who will be patient and continue his training. He will also need a family who understands that since he is a little guy he will need to go out more often than most dogs and needs a good schedule to not have any accidents. He is crated when we leave and will fuss at first, but at night he will go right in and curl up in his bed. He is very energetic and loves to go for walks and he will even play fetch inside with a tennis ball! He does well on a leash & would do very well with a family who will enjoy taking him for walks to burn off some of his little guy energy!" George is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $275.
 
 

Kenlie, a Poodle mix
 
Kenlie is a 2-3 year old Poodle mix girl and she weighs about about 25 pounds. Her foster dad says, "Kenlie weighs about 25 pounds, and 20 out of those 25 pounds are most likely her heart because she truly is a lover! Her favorite thing is to cuddle. She really loves to be right next to you. The way she looks at you and gives you little kisses will just melt your heart. She is housetrained, but still might need some time in the crate when left alone, as she has had 2 "chewing" incidents in the week I have had her, but only when left alone for an extended period of time. 
 
This is not her fault, as she still has some puppy in her. She loves to be rubbed and is so affectionate. She is getting more and more comfortable in the back yard and leaving my side a little more to chase my other much bigger dogs. She has shown no signs of food aggression and based on how well she has interacted with my dogs I bet she will be great with older kids or she would be happy just cuddling with one or two people. I think she really just wants a place of her own to call home and feel loved. Anybody who adopts Kenlie should be prepared for a lifetime of love, hugs, and kisses. Also you will receive a loyal companion for the rest of her life!" Kenlie is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had her teeth cleaned! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $275.
 
 

Ainslie, a Poodle
 
Ainslie is a 7 year old female Poodle and she weighs about 13 pounds. Her foster mom says, "Ainslie is a very sweet little girl and we feel certain she has been cherished her whole life! She's very confident and extremely well socialized, housetrained and crate trained (although we have varying degrees of success with that at bedtime, lol). 
 
She definitely is happiest when she is with her people so ideally her permanent family will be able to spend lots of time with her! She is especially bonded to my partner and sometimes she'll raise a fuss if he leaves the room and closes the door behind him, even though I'm right there. She is a talker but that may be related to the fact that she feels a bit unsettled at present. She does walk on a leash, but could use a little bit more training. She hasn't chewed one thing besides her stuffed toys which she loves carrying around the house. She is a total love and snuggler!" Ainslie is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had her teeth cleaned. She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $250.
 

Jerry, a Poodle
 
Hi! My name is Jerry, I'm an 8-10 year old male Poodle guy, weighing in at about 11 pounds, and I am a super special little guy! When I first got to my foster home I was afraid of everyone…humans, dogs, cats…everyone! I didn’t cower though. Nope. I don’t want anyone to hurt me so I tried to be really tough, and so I growled. My foster Mom says I sounded pretty scary, but she says it didn’t fool her. She says she could tell I am a love bug. I had been through a lot of scary stuff, and I thought no one loved me or wanted me anymore. I was very sad and my eyes were just empty. But guess WHAT???? You will never believe it! These other dogs? They are NICE, and they are FUN! These humans? They are KIND, and LOVING! These cats? They are COOL and kind of BORING! I feel so much safer, and I am starting to believe that I am going to know love again! I love squeaky toys! Mom says they perk me right up from looking sad to looking like a puppy in just one squeak.
 
She says I am going to make someone a great friend. My favorite thing to do in the whole world is to lay near the humans. My canine foster sister loves to cuddle up next to me, and I don’t mind at all. Because of all the trauma and how it has affected me, I would do best in a home that is quiet and calm. I will adjust to other pets but it may take a little while. I love to be outside, even in the rain, so I would love a fenced in yard to play in and lay in the sunshine in, but if you leave me outside too long I might start to bark. Just so I can make sure I don’t get forgotten again of course. I really don’t like being in a crate very much, but when my foster sister shares it with me I settle down and go right to sleep. But I am doing such a good job using the outside for a potty that a crate is not really something I need. Mom says there is nothing that would warm her heart more than to see someone take me home, cuddle me, love me forever, and teach me to never feel unloved or unwanted or unsafe again! Jerry is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $225.
 
 

Robyn, a Poodle mix
 
Robyn is an 8-10 year old female Poodle mix and she weighs about 7 pounds. She came into foster care as a stray and we don't know her whole history, but she seems to have had a leg injury at some point that was untreated, It has healed though, and she is fully mobile, but does have some arthritis. She just looks a little funny when she walks, but she doesn't let that bother her one bit! Her foster mom says, "Robyn should be named Cupid because she is full of love. Robyn is just about the perfect lap dog. She is very laid back and content as long as she is near her human. She gets along with other dogs as well, and loves to cuddle up to her foster brother, Jerry. She loves a soft bed to lie in, including yours. She will cuddle up to you, but once she lays down you won’t even know she is there. The only time I have heard her bark is when crated alone, then she kind of panics. However when she is crated with Jerry she is calm and content. 
 
She is a good girl and really does not need to be crated. She is housebroken on a schedule and has no destructive habits. She is interested in our cats and would like to chase them, but stops when told to and she is learning that cats are friends, not toys. Robyn is very delicate and fragile and should be in a home where she is handled with care at all times. She also needs to be in a home where she does not need to walk too much. She does walk around our fenced in yard just fine, but has an unusual gait, it just adds to her charm! She is a total sweetheart with a loving nature. She would do best in an environment where someone is home a lot, or where she can be crated with a friend and let out on a schedule. She would be happiest sleeping on your bed our couch, but needs a lift to get there." Robyn is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had her teeth cleaned! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $200.
 
 

Alfred, a Shih Tzu/Poodle mix
 
Alfred is a 3-4 year old male Shih Tzu/Poodle mix boy and he weighs about 14 pounds. His foster mom says, "His name may be Alfred, but we say he should really be called sweetheart, and he totally loves belly rubs and kisses! He is staying with me and my four fur kids, 2 girl dogs and 2 boy dogs. He gets along with dogs of all sizes, so he would do well in any sized home. Alfred came from the animal shelter and into his foster home already well adjusted. 
 
He does great with all of the adults he has come into contact with. He hasn't been around children, so I'm not sure how he would be. If he does as well with adults, he should be good with everyone. Alfred is a quick learner and eager to please. He's been housetrained, crate trained during the day and night, and has learned to sit. We're working on our leash walking and likes being in a harness. Alfred sure does like his squeeky toys! He's quick to make himself at home and get comfortable on the couch or a doggy bed. He can jump on the couch with no problem, but when he's relaxing in bed with the whole gang his foster mom has to pick him up. Alfred can sleep in his crate at night or sometimes he will fall asleep with everyone in bed." He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned. Alfred is fostered in the Orlando area and his adoption donation is $275.
 
 

Chachi, a Chihuahua

Meet Chachi! He is a 2 year old male Yorkie/Chihuahua mix and he weighs about 7 pounds. He arrived at FLDR very, very scared and unsure as to what was going on, as his previous family was no longer able to care for him. He will need a patient family to help him gain some confidence and self-assurance. Once he trusts you, you're his best friend!  

His foster dad says, "Chachi is an alert and cautious little guy, but with treats and kindness, quickly warms up and wants to play.This sweet boy is so loving once he trusts you and will sit on your lap and place his paws on your chest and gaze into your eyes, he's a total lover! Now that he trusts me and my father he now follows me everywhere and wants to snuggle with me anytime he can. He did well when my sister and children visited, he was cautious but after a short time he accepted them. Chachi will be a loving companion if you are patient and worthy of his trust. His loving personality with win over anyone. Due to his trust issues, we recommend that he not go to a home with children under 10. He is crate trained and housetrained on a schedule and gets along well with dogs from his size to a great dane." Chachi is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $275.
 
 

Chester, a Chihuahua
 
Chester is a 3-4 year old male Chihuahua and he weighs about 9 pounds.  He came into rescue after being hit by a car and taken to animal control. His back leg was pretty mangled and had exposed bone.  We rushed him right to our vet who amputated the leg, and within a few days, Chester was up and zooming around like a happy pup again!  
 
His foster mom says, "Chester is a love bug!  He is always a happy boy!!  He has such a great temperament, and is a great eater too. He loves his stuffed toys/animals - we have a large toy box of stuffed animals and he brings them out one by one and surrounds himself with them on his pillow. He loves to burrow at night into a blanket we have on the floor for him.  If we can't find him, chances are he is rolled up in his "cocoon". He is working on housetraining still, but is doing much better and a schedule really helps.  We have had him on a leash a few times and he did great, although we are mainly out in the fenced yard.  He does not realize he only has 3 legs and he runs and plays like all his fur brothers and sisters! He loves to receive attention and petting, and just wants a family to finally call his own!" Chester is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $250.
 
 

Christopher, a Mini Poodle
 

Christopher is a 4 year old Mini-Poodle and he weighs about 15 pounds.  He came into rescue after being removed from a hoarding case/backyard breeder.  He came in scared and unsure of the world, and thinking the world was pretty scary. His foster mom says, "All that has changed in his foster home. He has learned to love, walks on a leash, enjoys free romp room in the backyard and gets much love and attention. He is curious with any new item along the street on walks and has become relaxed enough to finally start sniffing along the trails on leashed outings.  Christopher has learned what toys are for and has a great time in the yard or house with a game of fetch. He is on a schedule for outside time and gets a gold star on housetraining.  We are a working household and he is in his crate during the day, and he gets a lunch walk. When I pick up a treat, he runs to stand at attention in his crate with no prompting. 

 
Christopher is smart and very loving companion. He enjoys resting against me when it is TV or reading time. Around the house as I go about my life, he is right beside me most of the time. He sleeps on the bed by my feet. Recently he has started to get in his crate as I finish my morning coffee because he knows it time for me to leave for work. He figured out its treat time so he doesn't need a verbal from me anymore to crate himself in the morning." Christopher is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart-worm negative, micro-chipped and his pearly white teeth are cleaned. He is fostered in Orlando, and his adoption donation is $275.
 
 

Clarkson, a Poodle
 
Clarkson is an amazingly sweet senior male Poodle, estimated to be between 8-10 years old and he weighs just about 9 pounds. His foster mom says, Clarkson is lovely, sweet boy. Wonderful inside manners and he is often quiet and sleepy. 
 
He enjoys going for walks but is also content to be let out for his bathroom breaks. He does seem to have some limited vision due to his age  and his hearing is not the sharpest, but that happens to all of us as we age, right? LOL! His eyesight and hearing doesn't seem to deter him from being a happy go lucky boy. He likes to stay close to his people and really enjoys being loved on. He gets along well with other dogs, especially when they let him snuggle with them. He'll make a great companion for a less active home and someone who just wants a lap pup to love on. Clarkson is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $175.
 
 

Latifah, a Pekingese
 
 
Latifah is a 5 year old female Pekingese and she weighs about 18 pounds! She needs a home where there aren't small kids, as in her previous home the grandkids teased her a lot. Her foster mom says, "She is a super sweet girl that loves to get kisses and be loved on. Latifah does have some separation anxiety issues and would love for someone to be home a bit more often. She would do better as an only dog as she has never had to share her family with other pups and can get a bit food aggressive . Latifah likes to sleep in the bed with you but durning the night she does jump down but will want to get back up in the bed later in the night. She loves to follows you where ever you go. So far she is housetrained that I have seen. Pretty much she is just a sweet girl who needs a chance and someone to love her!" Latifah is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had her teeth cleaned! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $250.

He gets along fine with other dogs from small to large. He is crate trained and housetrained on a schedule and is working on walking on a leash. This sweet boy just wants to be loved.

She comes off as a bit shy for all of about 2 minutes then let the kisses begin.Bianca would love to find a family that will let her snuggle up in bed under the covers with them. She also wouldn't mind having a fur friend around to play with. Bianca is a silly girl that will keep you laughing. She is not 100% housetrained but we are working on that. She will go in a crate but would much rather be hanging out with her humans." Bianca is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had her teeth cleaned. She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $275.

 
 

Francesca, a Long Haired Chihuahua
 
Francesca is a 10 month old female Long Haired Chihuahua and she weighs just about 3 pounds. She came into rescue from a hoarding case and had little socialization as a young puppy, so she does need a patient home willing to continue to work with her on her confidence. As she is delicate and nervous, a home without small children is a must for this precious girl. Her foster mom says: Francesca came from a hoarding case and due to this she is super scared and nervous around people she doesn't know. She loves to be with other dogs as they make her feel safe. She will need to go to a home that has another dog. 
 

Francesca will need a family who is willing to be very patient and understanding of where she came from and be willing to take the time necessary for her to learn she can trust you. Once she trusts you she will shower you with tons of kisses and beg you to pet and play with her. She loves to get kisses from you as well. Once she opens up she has the sweetest personality. I feel like she would do best in a home that does not have a lot people coming in and out as new people scare her. She is crate trained and we are working on her housetraining. She truly is a love bug once she opens up to you! Francesca is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative and microchipped.

Tug needs a home that is up for all things puppy - housetraining, leash training and important life skills such as learning flip flops are for feet, not food. 
 
He would do best in a home where his people are not gone long work days. His foster mom says, "This energetic, rough and tumble little boy is sweet, adorable, fearless, and fun.

If left alone for too long he will bark to get your attention so he will do best in a home where someone is there most of the time, and not an apartment. He is playful and enjoys his toys but doesn't interact much with the other dogs. This boy just loves being able to sit with you. He does not jump up on furniture or down so always looks for someone to pick him up and let him down. He is well mannered and loving.

 Bindi needs a home that is up for all things puppy - house training, leash training and important life skills such as learning flip flops are for feet, not food.  She would do best in a home where her people are not gone long work days, and without younger kids, as she is a bit delicate. Her foster mom says, "Bindi is a rough and tumble yet sensitive and sweet little pup. She will look at me as if she knows what I am saying to her. She loves to play with her brothers and sisters, yet is very eager to climb up on my lap for some bonding time. Bindi knows what she needs to do when she's outside and is good at listening to commands."

He loves to get belly rubs and lay around the house with you. His favorite time of day is treat time. With no teeth left in is mouth his tongue will hang out leaving you smiling every single time you look at him. Addicus enjoys the company of other dogs but will be just as happy to have you all to himself as long as you have lots of time to spend with him. He loves exploring the great outdoors and giving a little bark when the leaves roll by. Addicus is not fully housetrained yet. He is crate trained, but would much rather be curled up on a pet bed or in bed next to you. Lately he has been waiting for me to go to sleep then he sneaks up on the bed and curls himself up next to me. If you are looking for a sweetheart look no further!" Addicus is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, and microchipped! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $225.
 
 

Eva, a Pommeranian/Chihuahua mix
 

 
Eva is a 4 year old female Pom/Chi mix and she weighs about 14 pounds. She came into rescue scared and nervous, along with her newborn puppies. Her puppies are all weaned and have found forever families and now Eva is looking for hers! Her foster mom says, "Wow, Eva is going to be a amazing companion for someone super lucky! When she first came to us, we couldn't even get near her, she was in full on 'mama protection mode'. With patience, love and some yummy treats within a few weeks we easily became her best friends. She will dance on her hind legs and her whole body shakes when she sees us. She loves to play with toys, either with you or on her own. She gets along well with the other dogs in our home, but doesn't quite know how to play properly with them, and can wind up annoying them, and she honestly prefers her people anyhow, so she would do great as an only dog. Eva will let us take food from her without any issues. Wherever she lived before must not have treated her nicely, as she does have some fear of shoes and brooms. We have gained her trust, and she loves to sit and snuggle with us and will freely give kisses. She is still wary of strangers, and it takes her a little bit to warm up, but once we properly introduce them to her she does fine. She is crate trained and housetrained, and needs home with a fenced yard. Given her wariness of strangers, an apartment or a home with young children (under 12), or a lot of people coming and going would not really work for her. Eva is really a sweet girl, and we do adore her, and are excited for her to find a forever family of her own!" Eva is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and has had her teeth cleaned! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $275.
 
 

Chino, a Schnauzer/Poodle mix
 
Chino is a four year old male Schnauzer/Poodle mix and he weighs about 15 pounds. His foster mom says, "Chino is the dog just about anyone wants! He will give you a kiss if you ask for one, and even a hug! He likes to play, so another playful fur friend would be great, or some older kids to be his buddy. 
 
He is housetrained and walks nicely on a leash. He likes to go for rides in the car and is well behaved. He crates well if we have to go out without him, but I let him sleep with me. If I sleep to long he does lick me to let let me know he needs to go out. He is such a good boy!! Chino is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $275.
 
 

Dee, a Poodle/Bichon mix
 
Dee is a 12 year old female Poodle/Bichon mix and she weighs about 12 pounds. Somehow poor Dee found herself at the shelter matted with yucky teeth and generally uncared for. No one wanted to adopt her, as she is older, but poodles generally live over 16 years, so she sill has a lot of life ahead of her! She's been groomed, had a dental, and is acting like a spry pup now! Her foster mom says, "Dee is a very loving little girl who enjoys the company of people. She would make a wonderful companion since she likes to be with you all the time. She is what we call a velcro dog since she follows you wherever you go. 
 
When she is really happy she does curlies in her bed. It's so cute! She has a little problem with her sight and hearing but other than that she is a really healthy girl for her age. Now that she has had a dental, eating is her favorite time of day. In fact she gets so excited that she becomes quite animated and likes talks to you while you are preparing her meal. She is such a love and really joy to have around. If you are looking for a companion this is your girl. She has a heart full of love and is waiting for someone special to share it!" Dee is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had her teeth cleaned! She is fostered in the Lakeland area, and her adoption donation is $150.
 
 

Celia, a Mixed Breed
 

Celia is a 4 year old female Chihuahua/Dachshund mix and she weighs about 9 pounds.  She came into rescue from a hoarding case, where she had never known a kind touch or true affection.  She came in very protective of her puppies, which are now all weaned and ready for families of their own.  She has started to realize that people are generally kind, and has bonded with her foster mom who showers her with love.  This is what her foster mom had to say, "How do I write this one and be graceful?! She is very fearful and trusts no one until they prove they are kind.  Celia seems more imprinted on other dogs than humans. It took work and patience to get her to accept me as "ok". She is now glued to my hip, but is still not so keen on younger people. She is very vocal when letting me know that she's unaccepting of the new human in the house. Celia would do best in a one-ortwo-person household that is quiet with minimal chaos, where she would be a loving and loyal companion. 

 
 We are working on housebreaking and walking on a leash, both things that were once absent in her life, but with positive reassurance she is doing well!" Celia is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and has had her teeth cleaned!  She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $250.
 
 

Niblet, a Pommeranian
 
Niblet is a 5 year old male Pommie and he weighs about 6 pounds! He is a sweet pom, who was born with a birth defect of one eye being smaller than the other, a condition that is actually common in poms. Although is his vision is slightly impaired, it is the same vision he has had all his life, so it's actually his "normal", LOL! His foster mom says, "Niblet is a feisty little boy. As Pomeranian fans are well aware, they are a lot of dog packed into a pint-sized body. Niblet has a giant ego and is very confident with a happy demeanor. He is very cuddly. Niblet is not a fan of other dogs, nor would he do well with small children. 
 
He covets mealtime and he will defend his food. He is a very good boy in the housetraining department and loves to play. I suspect his eyesight isn't the best, but it doesn't slow him down at all!" Niblet is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $275.
 
 

Coleman, a Poodle/Terrier mix
 
Coleman is a 1-2 year old male Poodle/Terrier mix and he weighs about 15 pounds! His foster mom says, "Coleman is an adorable little ball of happy go lucky fluff. At first he was timid and shy, but warmed up to the whole family within 2 days. He enjoys playing with many different toys including a favorite rope toy. He does not seem to like fetch with a ball. He loves running around with our other dog and chasing the cats. He would love to play with the cats however they are not amused with him. Coleman is quite playful. He enjoys being cradled in my arms, getting belly rubs and being scratched behind his ears. Coleman is happiest just following me around wagging his tail. He enjoys lying on one of the many dog beds and the couch but is also very comfortable lying on the tile floor. Coleman can jump over 3 feet and therefore a baby gate has not been an option when we are out. While alone for short periods during the day and also during the nighttime, Coleman is crated. Each day he is getting more comfortable with the crate. We are using treats as a means to help this. He walks well on both a leash and with a harness unless he sees another dog, bird, or person then, he will try to squirm out of his collar/harness to go chase whatever he sees. We walk him on a leash in our yard, he will need continued leash training. A fenced yard would be great! Cole likes to greet passerbys as well as the neighboring dogs, so no apartments or condos for this little guy. Coleman is just a bit dish possessive. I can touch his dish but other pets in the house are not allowed near his bowl when he is eating, but we are working on that. Coleman is also working on his house training. 
 
Generally he goes outside with an occasional indoor accident, but this are becoming less and less. Coleman is doing well with learning new words, he is a quick learner for sure!! Since coming into foster care he has learned to understand sit, stay, no, come & cookie. We are working on shake paws. While Coleman listens well when he is focused, he has not mastered these commands if there is a distraction. Coleman is an absolute sweetheart, eager to please, and with continued training,I know he will make a wonderful addition to a loving patient home." Coleman is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, and microchipped! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $275.
 
 

Clara, a Maltese mix
 
Clara is a 4 pound, 10 year old female Maltese mix. Her foster mom says: When she first came to FLDR she was a very frightened little girl and shy of being handled. With lots of love and tender care she is now a very sweet and loving little lap pup. There is nothing she enjoys more than sitting and cuddling in your lap while watching TV or at the computer. If she can't find you she will call out for you to come and get her. She likes to explore outside and sit in the sun. She travels very well, will sleep most of the way and potty quickly at stops. She is mostly housetrained and will go to the door when she needs to go out. 
 
She does have a small bladder and needs to go out a little more often than a larger dog. This precious little soul has a big heart with a lot of love to give that someone special. She needs a mom or dad or will give her all the love and care she has never had. If you are that special someone, she will make you a wonderful companion and fill your home with love and joy. Clara is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had her teeth cleaned!  She is fostered in the Lakeland area, and her adoption donation is $175.
 
 

Zoe, a Mixed Breed
 
Zoe is a 1-2 year old female Chihuahua mix (we are thinking maybe Shiba Inu?) and she weighs about 12 pounds. Zoe came into rescue with an old fracture to her front left leg that has already healed. It doesn't cause her any pain and she is able to walk and play just fine, it just looks a little silly. After speaking with an orthopedic surgeon, there is no real benefit to surgery as the bone is fully healed, and it doesn't bother Zoe. 
 
Her foster mom says, "Zoe is a loving pup. She enjoys going out for walks and is still learning to walk on a leash. She does have an issue with going potty when she is excited or nervous in the house. She doesn't bark unless you put her in the crate when you go to work or when someone knocks on the door. She would do best with a fenced yard where she can run around and play. Her favorite nap place is in bed next to you or on your lap. All she wants is all the love you can give her. She is scared of loud squeaky toys though! Zoe loves her tummy to be rubbed and will give you kisses all day if you let her. Zoe is working hard on her house training, and will need a family willing to continue that with her. Zoe is such a sweetheart, but be careful - she's also a thief who will steal your heart!" Zoe is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative and microchipped! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $250.
 
 

Tori, a Mixed Breed
 

 Tori is a 11 week old female Chihuahua/Dachshund/who knows what mixed puppy and she currently weighs about 4 pounds.  She should stay under 15 pounds full grown, but since dad didn't stick around for us to meet him, we can't swear to that, but mom is only about 9 pounds.  Tori needs a home that is up for all things puppy - housetraining, leash training and important life skills such as learning flip flops are for feet, not food.  She would do best in a home where her people are not gone long work days, and without younger kids, as she is a bit delicate.  

 
Her foster mom says, "Tori is a beautiful little girl. She is a tomboy packed with oodles of endless energy. The poster child of puppydom, Tori loves to run in the yard, bark at sticks, bite and shake them too. She loves to pester her siblings and me!  It's too cute to watch her. She is a very precocious little dog who is already almost as big as her mom." Tori is spayed, up to date on vaccines, on flea and heartworm prevention, and mircochipped! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $325. 
 
 

Starlight, a Mixed Breed
 
Starlight is a 10 month old female Long Haired Chihuahua/Pom/Lab mix puppy and she weighs just about 34 pounds. She should stay under 40 pounds full grown, but we can't promise that. We know mom is an 10 pound Long Hair Chihuahua mix/Pom girl (Eva on the Adoptable Dogs Page of our website), and we heard rumors dad was a Lab mix, but he wasn't around for us to verify that. Starlight has been raised in a loving foster home since she was two days old. Her foster dad says, "She is still all puppy, learning that shoes are not for chewing  and that not every dog wants to play 24/7, so she will need a family understanding of that and willing to work with her. 
 

She is also very people driven once she bonds with you, so she absolutely can not be left alone all day while her family is away at work. She will need a human or fur companion. She loves playing with my Great Dane and Silkie Terrier especially. Star is a doll!!! She has always been the explorer of her litter - eyes open first, first to walk, first to escape the whelping box, first to play with a toy! That being said, she has always been a bit nervous in new settings, and it takes her some time to warm up. She is probably always going to be a shy girl, and more of a homebody type dog. She loves to snuggle and loves her people, once she gets to know them. She is a little shy around new people at first, or things coming at her head, but once she realizes you are a friend, she is your bestie for life! She will NEED a fenced yard, as she is still very scared meeting new people, and is not the biggest fan of leash walks, plus she loves to go out and run around. She only wants to be outside if you are though, as she does enjoy company. She loves to play and run SOOOO much it earned her a starter position in Puppy Bowl XI on Animal Planet this year. She gets nervous in the car, so she will need a family willing to work with that with her. All the work will be worth it though, because when this sweet girl stares into your eyes, hers full of love and devotion, your heart just melts!" Starlight is spayed, up to date on vaccines, on heartworm prevention and microchipped! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $275.

 
 

Summer, a Havanese mix
 
Summer is a four year old female Havanese mix and she weighs about 17 pounds.  She is a very sweet loving girl, and her foster mom says, "Soft and cuddly, Summer has no problem letting you know she wants attention.  She will nose your hand until you pet her or she will drop and roll for a belly rub wherever you stand, however, her favorite place is lying with you on the couch where she is can be completely relaxed with her tongue hanging out. Occasionally she will push your hand away with her paw, but that doesn’t mean she wants you to stop, it’s just her way of saying “that spot is good, try another”.  And sometimes she just gets feisty and wants to hand/mouth wrestle.  Summer’s overall personality is laid back, but she does get excited when I come home and when it’s time to eat.   
 

She loves to eat and gobbles down her treats, though she takes more time with her dinner bowl. Summer will walk on a leash or hang out in a fenced yard, but either way, she is house broken and hasn’t had any accidents in the house.  Summer would do best as an only dog since she likes to get all the attention, plus she doesn’t really interact with my dog, except for a couple of short scuffles over sharing (me and treats).  She would also do better in a single family home because she barks at outside noises, dog walkers and especially cats.  So no cats, but I think she would do well with older kids. Summer really needs a family who can give her a lot of time and attention to feel secure and loved, and in return she will be a wonderful companion." Summer is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and has had her teeth cleaned! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $275.

 
 

Flint, a Spaniel mix
 
Flint is a 7 year old male Spaniel mix and he weighs about 26 pounds. He was adopted out to a loving family 4 years ago, but they are getting divorced and neither of his humans was able to keep him, so Flint is looking for a new family, that this time will love him forever no matter what! 
 
 His foster mom says, "Flint is understandably confused, but seems to be coming around. He hasn't had a lot of interaction with our other pups yet, he still just observes them and whines at them a bit. He is housetrained, but we have a fenced yard, so I don't know how he would do with that on a leash. I don't have any children in my home, but his previous family had older ones and he was fine with them. He does want to be left alone while he is eating. He loves to be held, kissed, and hugged. He seeks affection, and would do best in a home where his humans are home a lot." Flint is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and microchipped. He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $250.
 
 

Jodie, a Mini Poodle
 
Jodie is a 1 year old male Mini-Poodle and he weighs about 14 pounds. He came into foster care from a hoarding case and he is now enjoying learning how to be a house pet and he will need a family with patience and love to help him along his journey. His foster mom says, "Jodie is a sweet, loveable guy who started out very shy and untouchable. However, he’s turned around and seeks out human contact. He loves to run in the yard with his ball, which he tosses, chases, and rolls on. He will also run with the gang after a ball I’ve thrown but he’s just as happy throwing his own and going after it. He’s too rough with my little dogs, so I’d suggest his adopters have no dogs under 12 lbs. He is finally accepting a collar but is not yet leash trained. So, until then, a fenced yard is a must. 
 
He’s not completely housetrained but will go out if you can catch him in time.  I can’t comment on children but I think older dog savvy kids who will play with him and show him the attention he craves would be a great fit. He will become a wonderful, loving, and loyal pet for a family who has the time, experience, and patience to continue his training and develop his self-esteem." Jodie is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $275.
 
 

Chulo, a Pommeranian
 

Chulo is a 3 year old male Pommie and he weighs about 20 pounds.  He came into rescue after being found as a stray and he is working hard to learn to trust people, but he will need a family that is willing to be very, very patient with him and help him work through his fear.  His foster mom says, "Deep down, Chulo is a very loving pup. 

 
He does very well on a leash and  has come a looonnnggg way since he has been here - he now stays with us in the living room about 90% of the time, and he now lets James interact with him!  He is housetrained and he LOVES dinnertime.  He knows how to shake hands, plus he is very loving and has a puppy attitude and he no longer fears every little sound he hears, but he does however still freak out when the vacuum is running. Occasionally, he hears something and leaves the room to go back under the bed but not for long!  Chulo is extremely fond of petting and likes to be brushed. He has come SUCH a long way with us and really blossomed! He is such a cool pup!" Chulo is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned.  He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $250.
