 Adoptable Dogs 

Ollie, a Yorkie mix
 
Hi! My name is Ollie and I am a 4-5 year old Yorkie mix boy and I weigh about 8 pounds right now, though I need to gain a few. My foster Mom says I am a pretty big deal because I am the 3,000th dog that has been rescued by Florida Little Dog Rescue and I am her 55th foster dog. When I first got to her house I was really scared. I had been in a very scary place and I was very skinny. I had to have all my hair shaved off because I was so matted up, but they found this really neat white patch on my back! When they shaved off my hair they found out that I had been bitten by somebody too. I was so afraid that when I came out of the crate I stood like a statue. But after I took a short walk, the first thing I did was wag my tail and give my foster mom some sweet kisses on her face. My foster mom says I am a really good boy. I will stay in a crate when she needs me to, I go potty outside (why on earth would I potty inside?!), I have made friends with her dogs and cats, everyone who meets me falls in love with me, and I love everyone I meet! I am still learning that I am safe but I still get a little scared ….like from those squeaky things inside the toys. I like to cuddle on the bed with my foster family and I am a sweet, gentle, loving little boy who my foster mom says must go to a family that will make sure I am safe and loved for the rest of my life! 
 
 She says this family will be very lucky. I will be happiest with someone who is home a good part of the time. I would like someone with two or four legs to play with, but mostly I like to cuddle and be loved on. Because I am still working on feeling safe I would do best in a quiet home without small children. Ollie 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.
 
 

Lourdes, a Yorkie mix
 
Lourdes is a 4 year old female Yorkie mix and she weighs about 8 pounds. Her foster mom says, "Lourdes is a beautiful, sweet little girl who is a bit timid due to previously being part of a hoarding situation. She is figuring out that life is good and is enjoying being a pampered pet in a normal home situation. She has warmed up to me and enjoys (and even demands) my attention. Lourdes follows me around the house but sometimes forgets and runs under the bed when I try to pick her up or walk toward her too quickly. She should relax with time. 
 
She loves to chase the other dogs around the yard and be chased by them in return! When she isn’t running she enjoys just meandering around the yard exploring all the sights and smells. She is working on her leash and housetraining skills. A home with a fenced yard would be perfect along with a quiet family who will give her the love, patience and attention she deserves." Lourdes 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.
 
 

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 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.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 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.
 
 

Lilly, a Boston Terrier
 
Lilly is four month old female Boston Terrier and she weighs about 6 pounds.  She should stay under 20 pound full grown, but we can not promise that.  Lilly arrived in rescue after her family found having such an active puppy was just too overwhelming for them.  In typical Boston fashion, Lilly loves to play play play!  She also loves to give kisses, but she is still a little wiggly when snuggling.  She gets along well with other young, active playful dogs, but should not be in a home with an older pup.  
 
 Lilly does have stenotic neres, a narrowing of the nasal passages, that our vet believes she will grow out of, but could mean she would need to return to our vet later for surgery, so we are only considering homes in the Orlando area for her at this time.She will definitely need an active family who is home a lot so that she won't be left alone an entire workday, and one willing to take her to puppy training classes, because she is super smart and wants to learn how to be the best possible family member she can be. Lilly 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 $400.
 
 

Joy, a Poodle
 
Joy is a five year old female Poodle and she weighs about 17 pounds! She came into rescue after living in a hoarding situation, so she is learning to be a loved pet! Her foster mom says, "Joy came to FLDR a frightened little girl and she is still a little shy and distrustful of people she doesn't know. However given time and patience, she will turn into a wonderful loving lap dog. She loves to run and play with the other foster pups. One of her favorite pastimes is hunting lizards in the back yard and sitting on the patio in her foster moms lap.It would be nice if she could have a fenced in back yard since we are stilll working on her leash and housetraining. She is a typical poodle in that she wants to please and be with her people, thus it makes it easy for obedience training.
 
She is a very good girl and deserves a family of her own who will love and care for her. Please give this beautiful sweet girl a chance at a loving forever home. You will be rewarded with a very loving companion." Joy 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 $275.

He gets along with older children and dogs of all sizes and will let them know if they're getting to much in his space. He is a confident, loving, playful little guy that just wants to be loved. Once he accepts you, you're his best buddy and he wants to spend as much time as he can with you. He is housetrained on a schedule, crate trained and is working on walking with a leash.

He enjoys going for walks (it’s part of the adventure) and walks very nicely on the leash.  Russell gets along with all dogs, big and small and even likes to snuggle with his foster brother Grant.  He can be a cuddly lap dog one minute and the next minute he is off with a toy or his favorite rawhide stick.  He is definitely fun to be around and his happiness is infectious!  Russell also gets along with cats and rides well in the car." He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! Russell is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $275.

He is learning to trust and once he knows you are a friend, he loves to snuggle and give kisses. His foster mom says, "Oso is a very sweet boy once he warms up! He loves to snuggle, and is learning to play with toys. He is pretty quiet overall, and not a huge barker. 
 
That may change as he opens up more though. Oso is working on his housetraining, and for now, a fenced yard is a must as he does not like the leash at all. He would do OK with older, dog savvy kids, as he likes my teenagers. He does like to play with our other foster puppy Booker, so a young, active playmate would be good for him!" Oso is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, and microchipped! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $350.
 
 

Lola, a Terrier mix

Her foster mom says,"Lola is such a sweet and loving girl! A true DOLL! She is housetrained, and she walks well on a leash. 
 
She just likes to be with her humans and snuggle and cuddle. She will go take a break in her "house" (crate) all on her own too. She would do great with older kids, but will want someone home a lot to spoil her and shower her with attention. She is not a big barker, and overall is such a great pup!" Lola 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.

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.
 
 

Prince, a Cavalier
 
 
Prince is a 4 year old male Cavalier and he weighs 38 pounds. Yes, he is all Cavalier, he is just a former "puppy store" puppy, and the breeders that "supply" puppy stores tend to use oversize dogs to be able to have more puppies per litter, so more money per litter, and oversized dogs. Prince is a true delight, and his foster mom says, "The face irrestible.Then you meet him. Prince is just a happy dog. He loves to chase squirrels and talk to them while they sit in the trees. He has a keen eye and never misses anything moving. I once laughed as he barked at a low flying plane. He loves to cuddle and thinks he's a little lap dog as he attempts to sit in the same chair as you. Prince gets along with other dogs and is great with older kids. He has improved greatly in his  housetraining. I have not crated him, but I haven't needed to. He is a good dog and very respectful of people stuff." Prince 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.
 
 

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.
 
 

Dewey, a Min-Pin
 
Dewey is a 3 year old Min-Pin and he weighs about 11 pounds. His foster mom says, "Dewey is an energetic, loving miniature pincher. He loves to run around the yard and play with big dogs. He is housetrained and crate trained but loves to snuggle under the covers. Dewey makes a great furry friend to go on long walks and to the dog park or even just to cuddle and watch movies at home. He would be great in a home with larger dogs and older children (no cats). He is very attentive and smart and would make any home a happy one. Dewey is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had her teeth cleaned! He 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. 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. 
 
 

Blair, a Mini Poodle
 
Blair is a 2 year old male Mini-Poodle and he weighs about 17 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, "When Blair arrived, he was shut down and unwilling to come out of his crate. When I finally managed to get him outside, he refused to leave the deck and did his business right outside the back door. Now he goes out into the yard and sometimes even seems to enjoy it. He’s finally wearing a collar after he chewed off the first one. 
 
When I tried to walk him on a leash, he became frantic, doing backwards somersaults, jumping in the air, etc.So for now, a fenced yard is a must. He’s too rough with my little dogs, so I’d suggest his adopters have no dogs under 12 lbs. He will become aggressive with the other poodles over a toy, even though numerous other toys are scattered about. He does come and put his head on my lap for loving, so I know there’s a wonderful dog inside him. 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." Blair 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.
 
 

Kolby, a Shih Tzu
 
Kolby is a 5 year old male Shih Tzu and he weighs about 11 pounds. His foster mom says, "This is one sweet little man. He is a go along, get along fella. He is crate trained, seems to be housetrained and gets along with my large and small dogs. He is very quiet, I have only heard him bark once, and that was outside at my neighbor. His favorite place is laying on the softest pillow on the couch, but he will also go hang out in his crate if the door is open. He is curious about what people in the household are doing, but is not demanding at all. 
 
He would be perfect for someone in an apartment. I have not noticed any issues with separation anxiety, he doesn’t chew things he isn’t supposed to, but loves a good bone. If you need an easy going, happy little dog, this is your man. I do not know how he is with cats or children, but I wouldn't recommend him with small kids, as he will guard his treats a little." Kolby 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.
 
 

Ryan, a Mini Poodle
 

Ryan is a 4 year old male Mini-Poodle and he weighs about 17 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, "Initially, he was shut down and unwilling to come out of his crate. Now he goes out into the yard and will play for a while. We are still working with him to accept a collar, as he chewed off the first collar and a harness. 

 
When I tried to walk him on a leash, he became frantic, doing backwards somersaults, jumping in the air, etc. So for now, a fenced yard is a must. He’s too rough with my little dogs, so I’d suggest his adopters have no dogs under 12 lbs. He has perfected counter surfing by jumping up, searching what’s available, and then on the second jump, snatching his object of interest, such as sunglasses, iPhone, papers, etc. He does come and put his head on my lap for petting, so I know he’s looking for love and affection. 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." Ryan 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.
 
 

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!"

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."

Q, a Tibetan Spaniel mix
 
Q is a 3 year old male Tibetan Spaniel mix and he weighs about 9 pounds.  His foster mom says, "Q is a sprightly, playful bit of fun who arrived in rescue with an eye injury, and promptly gave himself another one!  
 

Oh, those googly eyes!! He is healed now, though he may always have a bit of hazing in his eyes as a result.  It doesn't seem to affect his vision or his ebullient spirit.  Nimble and quite the Houdini, this little guy loves to see and do and explore... and then snuggle in your lap.  Housetrained on a schedule, great on a leash, and is kind to other dogs and cats alike, he is a wonderful little guy.  Due to his delicate eyes, we recommend that he go into an adult home, and that he avoid rough play." Q is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, heartworm negative and has had his teeth cleaned! is fostered in the Orlando area and his adoption donation is $275.

 

Grant, a Maltese/Poodle mix
 

Grant is a 2-3 year old male Maltese/Poodle mix and he weighs about 9 pounds.  His foster mom says, "Grant is a very playful and loving little boy.  He loves playing with his foster brothers and using the toys for a game of tug-o-war. They will be racing around the house one minute and then conked out in a puppy pile the next.  He also enjoys just being a lap dog and getting belly rubs.  Grant gets so excited for a treat or goodie that he will quiver all over in anticipation.  He still gets nervous at times when walking on a leash and will want to be held so he will need a fenced yard.

 
He does very well with his housetraining when he can go outside and roam around the yard.  Grant is crate trained but would rather sleep snuggled next to you in bed at night.  He gets along great with all the dogs and ignores the cats.  He would do best in a home with a fur-sibling to play with and keep him company." Grant is neutered, heartworm negative, up to date on vaccines, 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.
 
 

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.
 

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.

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.

    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!
