 Adoptable Dogs 

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.
 
 

Pemberton, a Poodle mix
 
Meet Pemberton, a 2 year old Poodle mix! He's 16 pounds of lovable, huggable and playful joy. He enjoys the company of his humans as well as his foster brothers and sisters. He'll bring a rope to you to play tug-of-war with. He loves to romp around with excitement when seeing new friends on walks. 
 
He would love a fenced in backyard to show you what he can do. He doesn't like to be left alone, so a family who's home at least part time would be ideal. He's housetrained and is working on his leash training. Pemberton is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, has had his teeth cleaned and microchipped. He is fostered in the Orlando area and his adoption donation is $275.
 
 

Chiquita Bonita, a Mixed Breed
 
Meet Chiquita Bonita! This sweet little Lab/Chihuahua/Whippet ball of cuteness is just 4-5 months old and about 10 pounds. Her foster mom says, "What a difference just a couple of weeks and a lot of love and good food can make!!! Our super skinny Chiquita Bonita is THRIVING in foster care! Her hernias have been repaired, and the bleeder was fixed!! She has recovered well, and is enjoying life as a growing puppy!!! She is ready to find a forever family of her own, and wanted us to tell you all about her. Chiquita Bonita is a sweet little mixed breed puppy and she should stay under 40 pounds full grown, but we can't promise that! This sweet girl arrived in rescue as a "chihuahua mix" at an emaciated 6 pounds, but we quickly recognized that she was just emaciated, and not really a chihuahua! She is a 4-5 month old puppy and now weighs close to 10 pounds and is still growing. 
 
We don't know her exact breed mix, but we the ink there is some lab in there, some whippet maybe, and maybe chihuahua too, but we really don't know, we just know she is super sweet! Chiquita Bonita is the sweetest little puppy ever. She came into rescue super skinny, but we have kept a close eye on her after her hernia repairs, and she has already put some weight on YAY ! Chiquita Bonita is ALL puppy and can be a bit hyper when you first get home (she's super excited to see her humans). She loves to go in the yard and run and play and loves it even more when you play a game of fetch with with. Her tail is always wagging and she is always happy. Once she has burned off some energy her favorite thing to do is snuggle up next to you. In her eyes she can't get close enough. When you hold her she lays her head on your shoulders or chest and soaks up the loving. She is in the process of being crate trained and although she is not a huge fan of it she will fuss for a few minutes and then lay down and relax. Chiquita Bonita is not house trained (we are working on it) and will need someone who will be patient with her while she is learning all about the do's and don't 's. Chiquita Bonita would love to have a fur brother/sister to play with but its not mandatory. A fenced in backyard or an active family that will walk/run her a few times a day is a must!" Chiquita Bonita is spayed, up to date on vaccines, on flea and heart worm prevention and microchipped! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $300.
 
 

Daisy Mae, a Jack Russell Terrier mix
 
Meet Daisy Mae!  Daisy is an adorable 11 month old Jack Russel mix puppy and she weighs about 10 pounds. Her foster mom says,Daisy is all puppy and has lots and lots of energy to burn.  She will need a fenced in yard so that she can burn off that energy  or someone who will be able to walk/run/play with her throughout the day. Daisy is a bit shy when you go to pick her up but at the same time paws and whines for your attention. She will need someone who will be patient with her while learning that her new family only wants the best for her and to help her gain her trust and confidence. 
 

She loves to play and wants the other dogs to play with her but then gets nervous when they play back so she may need a friend that is close to her size so she is not so nervous. Daisy wants to be near people and is not a huge fan of the crate but we are working on it. She is not fully housedtrained just yet but is working on it as well.  Daisy is a super sweet girl with lots of love to give.  She is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and microchipped. Daisy is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $275.

 

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.
 
 

Roux, a Yorkie/Powderpuff/Chinese Crested mix
 

Roux is a 4 year old male Yorkie/Powderpuff Chinese crested mix and he weighs about 8 pounds.  He came into foster care from a hoarding case and he had to learn to warm up to people, but he has decided humans are nice and is loving his foster home!  His foster mom says, "Roux sure has made some great progress, he came into my house shy and scared, not knowing what a toy or dog bed were. 

 
Now, if he is not on the couch with me, he is in one of the dog beds and he already found his favorite toy, although he pulls them all out. He has learned to cuddle and give kisses. He sleeps in bed with me, no crate needed. He is pretty much housetrained with very few, if any, accidents any more. He still LOVES being outside sniffing everything, so if you don't have a fenced in yard, please enjoy long walks and being outside. I think as much as he loves being outside, he also enjoys naps and has become a pro at that. He truly is one of the sweetest and funniest dogs I have met. He still is shy when it comes to new people petting him, they just have to go slow with him. He deserves so much love and the best furever home, is that you?" Roux 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.
 
 

Christopher, a Mini Poodle
 

Meet Christopher! He is a 4 year old Mini Poodle, who weighs about 15 pounds. Our homepage currently has the Oodles of Poodles story and from this situation Chris has come to us. His foster mom says, "He was not leash trained and was at first uncomfortable with a collar or harness. We have switched to use both in order to allow him to become use to these tools for his leash. He is such the smart fellow that within two days he figured out if he followed his partner, our five pound Pommeranian, he would go on exciting walks to discover a zillion new sights and smells. He generally ignores the cats and has shown no aggression to our other dog. He did have a moment when he thought the cats would like to jump and play, they dissuaded him, but he has been very respectful since. He is currently on a fenced outdoor schedule for his bathroom duties and understands what to do in the backyard time. As long as we stick to his schedule we have no accidents. 

 

He is crated during the day while the household is at work and goes straight out when we arrive home. Speaking of the crate, he gets a treat in his crate when its time to go in and this is coming along fine.Since most of his former life he was in a concrete run items like rustling leaves, lawnmower noises, wind blown plants were in his first week scary, now he has made great progress not to be frightened of these things. We are diligently introducing him to different outdoor textures and experiences so he will be accepting. He was happy with greeting the children and new adults visiting us, so that has been an easy transition also. He sleeps on the bed and shares space with our cat and other dog. He is working on his manners as he is obviously never was in need of respecting boundaries in his former life." 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.

 

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.
 
 

Starlight, a Mixed Breed
 
Starlight is an 8 month old female Long Haired Chihuahua/Pom/Lab mix puppy and she weighs just about 27 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. She is still all puppy - and is learning housetraining, what a leash is, 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. Her foster mom says: Starlight 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 started 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! Starlight is fostered in the Orlando area, and her 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. However, he has issues that are taking time to resolve and his new family will need to be willing to work with him. His favorite hiding place is under our bed, but he is coming out more and more as he learns to trust. He is petrified of men.
 
 We are working on him with food persuasion but he is very, very cautious. He is very friendly with me. We have gotten him out in the living room and tried to just let him explore at his own pace. He eventually started playing with Chester and a yorkie we have. He does very well on a leash. He also eats very well. Trying to work on housetraining as he will not always come from under the bed to go out with everyone else. We love him and our hearts break for him for whatever life he may have had before, I think there is a really cool pup inside, we just need to convince him to come out!" 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.
 

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 wa 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 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 is a little possessive of us (typical Chi, LOL!) but he is sweet enough to overcome that as he becomes more secure." 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.
 
 

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. 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. 
 
 

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.
 
 

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.
 
 

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.
 
 

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.
