 Adoptable Dogs 

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, and will share her toys.  Everyone is fed separately though, but 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 would do best in a 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.
 
 

Sarah, a Mini Poodle

Meet Sarah! She is a 7 year old female Mini Poodle and she weighs about 14 pounds. Her foster mom says, "Sarah is a sweet, quiet, well mannered little lady. I believe she has had some poor treatment in her past as she is shy and a little skittish around people until she gets to know them. She has settled in nicely with me and my pack and seems to feel comfortable now. She gets along with both dogs and cats and follows me around most of the time. Sarah also gives sweet doggie kisses! I haven't heard her bark at all yet.

She would love to have a home with people who understand that she may take a little time to feel comfortable and make herself at home with them. A quiet environment and lots of love and attention would suit Sarah just fine!" Sarah 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.

Obie, a Shih Tzu mix
 
Obie is a 3 year old male Shih Tzu mix and he weighs about 18 pounds. He was turned into animal control by his family who could no longer care for him. He did come into rescue with heart worms, but he has been treated and is doing great!! His foster mom says, "Obie is playful, curious, friendly, and gets along with the other dogs. When he’s done playing, he likes to lay around his humans - he's not demanding but wants to be close. He follows us around from room to room. Obie likes to sleep on my bed at night - at first wouldn’t share his space but now will move a little to accommodate the others. 
 
He doesn’t want anyone around when he eats though. Obie is housetrained on a schedule, but we do have a fenced yard so I can't say how his house training would be if he was leashed walked for potty breaks. He is OK with our cats unless someone else starts barking when the cat is on the move; then he joins in. I honestly can’t comment on leash walking or children. Obie will do well in forever home by himself or with other dogs and he will be a wonderful companion pet!" Obie is neutered, up to date on vaccines, on flea and heart worm prevention, 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.
 

Snow, a Terrier Mix

Meet Snow! She is a two month old female Terrier mix puppy and she weighs about 4.5 pounds. Snow's mom is a super sweet 15 pound Terrier mix and we have no idea who daddy is, he didn't really stick around. We think the puppies in her litter will stay under 20 pounds, but we can't promise that. What we can promise is that they are totally adorable, and ALL puppy! They need a family willing to work with them on all the challenges of raising a puppy - house training, leash training, learning that flip flops are for feet and not food, and other important life skills.

They have all been lovingly raised in a foster home with older children, and they love to snuggle and play. They love racing around the fenced yard with their two legged human for play time. She is still small, so she will need a family that is home a lot, and a younger, active fur sibling would be ideal! Snow 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 $350.

Gibson, a Pommeranian

Meet Gibson! He is a 2 year old male Pommie and he weighs about 20 pounds! His foster dad says, "Gibson is a fun loving playful boy that really loves to be with you. He is content to lay on the floor at your feet or better yet on your lap. He gets along well with dogs of all sizes from my 10 pound silkie terrier to my 150 pound great dane. He is crate trained, housetrained on a schedule and is working on walking with a leash. He does enjoy his walks. Gibson is a bit of an escape artist. He can climb my 5 foot chain link fence, so a fenced yard is best as long as it's not chain link. He would be a great addition for an active family!" Gibson 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.

Julie, a Poodle

Meet Julie! She is a 5 year old female Poodle, and she weighs about 16 pounds! Julie came into rescue as part of a breeding/hoarding case, and is quickly learning that being a real family pet is a pretty cool gig! She will needs a family that understands she needs patience and love, but if they get that, she will be a loyal companion! 

Her foster mom says, "Julie is shy at first but after she gets to know the routine she fits really well! She is a very good eater, and is great about using the bathroom outside and sleeping all night in the crate. Julie is getting along well with my other dogs, too. I thinks she would make a great pet for someone who is home most of the time, does not have small children and LOVES a snuggle puppy!" Julie 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.
 

Starsky, a Yorkie/Schnauzer mix

Meet Starsky! He is a 5-6 month old male Yorkie/Schnauzer mix and he weighs about 6 pounds. His foster mom says, "Starsky is a happy, playful little boy after his shyness wears off. He loves playing with his foster sister along with a good chase. He's quite the cuddler too! 

At first, he was not fond of walking on a leash but now he gets so excited to go around the neighborhood. We have been working on housetraining and have mostly been successful as long as he gets plenty of potty breaks. He has learned to sleep in his crate at night and has gone in on his own a few times. He is a little lover boy and just wants someone to love and some friends to play with!" Starsky is neutered, up to date on vaccines, on flea and heart worm prevention, and microchipped! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $300

Spark, a Yorkie/Poodle mix

Meet Spark! He is a 3 year old male Yorkie/Poodle mix and he weighs about 10 pounds. His foster mom says, "Spark's name should be Einstein. I have never observed a dog that is smarter and more creative in my life. Spark's new family will need to outsmart him if they want him to have boundaries. He does not like to be penned up and won't take no for an answer. He is not a crate dog. He loves to roam free and, given the chance, he'll skip out. He can leap tall buildings with a single bound.

All kidding aside, Spark has been able to climb my 42-inch dog gate, hoist himself up and wiggle through the balusters of my staircase just to brag that he can do it! No dog has ever done that. For that I sit back and have to admire his tenacity. Spark will need a family as smart as he is to keep him entertained and give him lots of love, he totally craves attention. He would do best in a single family home - no apartments, condos or townhomes please. He would be great with older, dog savvy kids to play with, but may be too exuberant for smaller ones. Otherwise, he will be your best bud and will love you forever!" Spark 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.
 

Owen, a Shih Tzu/Maltese

Meet Owen! He is a 3 year old male Shih Tzu/Maltese mix and he weighs about 10 pounds. Owen came into rescue a super happy, sweet guy - even after being found as a stray, and then testing positive for heart worms. He has had his heart worms treated, and is doing great! His foster mom says, "He's just coming out of HW treatment restriction, so I'm learning about him every day. He seems to be a happy, playful, little boy. Owen loves to wrestle and run around the yard. He sleeps in bed with me now but growls at anyone who tries to come up on his side of the bed, so we are working with him on that, helping him feel more secure. 

Initially he was shy and unsure of his place in the dog dynamics but now he fits right in. He is protective of his food so I feed him by himself. He's now OK with sharing toys and enjoys a game of tug and ignores that cats. When inside, he likes to stay close to his humans. I don't know about leash walking or interaction with children, but I think he'd be ok with dog savvy older kids. With a little patience to help him feel comfortable and self-assured, he would be a delightful addition to some lucky family!" Owen is neutered, had his teeth cleaned, is up to date on vaccines, on heart worm prevention and microchipped! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $275.

Scooby, a Yorkie/Poodle Mix

Meet Scooby! He is a 5-6 year old male Yorkie/Poodle mix and he weighs about 12 pounds. His foster mom says, "Scooby is an all around awesome guy. He LOVES to be around his people and will follow you everywhere this is what I call a velcro pup. With that being said he also likes to just lounge around outside soaking up the fresh air. He gets along with all my pups and loves everyone he has met as long as they are willing to give him some loving. Scooby does have some separation anxiety issues when you leave him alone so an apartment would not be a good fit for him as he does cry for a few minutes when you leave. When it's bed time he will crawl into a pet bed and crash for the night but would much rather be cuddled up next to you. Scooby is also not a big fan of car rides and will whine a bit. 

We have yet to hear him bark (only whining when he's left alone). If you are looking for a very relaxed pup his your guy!" Scooby 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 $250.

Starlight, a Mixed Breed
 
Starlight is a 6 month old female Long Haired Chihuahua/Pom/Lab mix puppy and she weighs just about 18 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, 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 can also be a drama queen and act like her siblings are killing her if they are playing rough - she prefers to be more of a lady I guess. 
 
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 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 $300.
 
 

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.
 
 

Bruce Lee, a Schnauzer/Yorkie mix

Meet Bruce Lee! He is a 2 year old male Schnauzer/Yorkie mix and he weighs about 15 pounds. His foster mom says, "Although I haven't had Bruce very long, I can tell you he is an absolute joy! He appears to be housetrained, he sleeps soundly in my bed at night. He gets along with all people and pups, he does bark at them when he sees them, but only because he wants to say hi and play. 

He is good on a leash, but have your sneakers on, he is a speedy walker and even speedier when he sees a squirrel. A must for Bruce is TOYS! He is playing with them constantly and you'll have them all on the couch if he has his way...which he should. He does get sad (whines and then barks) when you leave the house, but even that is getting better as he learns my routine. He is a very smart boy who listens well. He sits for treats and rides well in a car. Bruce Lee would be a great addition to almost any family who likes to play and give belly rubs! I will miss this little guy when he finds his furever home could that be you??" Bruce Lee 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

Demi, a Pommeranian

Meet Demi! She is a 9-10 year old female Pommie and she weighs about 10 pounds. Her foster mom says, "Demi is a very sweet and lovable little girl. She gets very excited about life especially when its time to eat. She becomes very cute and animated. She loves to go outside and explore the yard or just sit in the sun. Demi would make a wonderful companion pup. She enjoys being with her humans and will follow them where ever they may go. She would do well in a home with carpet and no stairs. She has had a rough life which includes injuries to her spine, hips and knees. 

However if her weight is kept down she gets around just fine albeit somtimes just a little slower. She's a little girl with lots of love in her heart to share with that special someonel. If you can open up your heart and home to this little sweetheart, you will be greatly rewarded with lots of love and happiness." Demi is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and has had her teeth cleaned! She is fostered in the Lakeland area and her adoption donation is $150.
 

Laser, a Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix
 

Meet Laser! He is a 2-3 year old Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix and he weighs about 13 pounds. His foster dad says, "Laser is a very sweet guy that has lots of love to share. He is playfully and very loyal once he trusts you. He enjoys sleeping on your lap or beside you when watching TV or anytime to just be with you.

 
He loves to snuggle with you! This very loving boy gets along well with dogs of all sizes from a great dane to a silkie terrier. He is crate trained and house trained on a schedule and does well on a leash. He just wants to please his people. Laser is a total love and deserves a loving family to share his love."

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. His foster dad says, "Chachi is an alert and cautious little guy, but with treats and kindness, very soon 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.  

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 13. He is crate trained and housetrained on a schedule and gets along well with dogs from his size to a great dane."

Jason, an American Eskimo/Pom Mix
 
Meet Jason! He is a 3 year old male American Eskimo/Pom mix, and he weighs about 19 pounds! His foster mom says, "Jason is turning into a fluffy fun little pup. He is learning what it is like to be in a loving home. Jason will need a young understanding family to take him in. He has a ton of energy. We are teaching him how to walk on a leash but he is very strong and pulls on the quite hard. He does show some signs that he has been abused in the past and will need to be worked with on this.
 
He gets weary sometimes and you can tell when he is uncomfortable. He does well with other dogs. He is learning how to play with toys and likes them a lot. Jason would do best in a home with a younger couple without small children, and who are experienced dog owners and have a fenced backyard. He loves romping around outside! With some TLC this little guy will be a great dog!" Jason 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.
 
 

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.
