 Adoptable Dogs 

Yumi, a Terrier/Chihuahua mix
 
Yumi is a four month old female Terrier/Chihuahua mix and she weighs 4.5 pounds. She should stay under 10 pounds full grown, but we can't promise that. Her foster mom says,"Yumi is a smart little girl! So smart that she even learned to climb the stairs in just a few minutes. She has sweet and soulful eyes and likes to play with her foster brother. She also likes to snuggle in bed. She will stay in your lap for snuggles, as well as stay on the floor for some independent time. She is not housetrained yet but she is working on it, she is still a puppy after all. 
 
She would do better with someone who is home to walk her during the day, as she is little and does need to go out often. She is still small, so a home without small children is also ideal. Yumi is spayed, up to date on vaccines, on heart worm prevention and microchipped! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $275.
 
 

Pacie, a Terrier/Poodle mix
 
Pacie is a one year old female Terrier/Poodle mix and she weighs about 10 pounds! Her foster mom says, "Pacie is a bouncing ball of puppy enthusiasm and silliness. She is a little skittish, though, and not sure she likes being picked up; however, she has no problem jumping in your lap and giving you kisses until you play and hand wrestle. She is getting used to walking on a leash and is housetrained on a schedule, plus uses pee pads between walks. Pacie loves to run and play with toys, however, she hasn’t warmed up to my dog (yet) to play with him. Pacie follows me around like a shadow, and if I open a cabinet door, she has her head inside before I do. 
 
She doesn’t like to be crated if she can see you, but she will sleep in a crate if I put it next to my bed. I put my fingers in the crate so she can give me kisses, which helps her settle down and go to sleep. I cannot speak to cats as I do not have one, however, I recommend older children because Pacie is a jumper and can be mouthy. In order for this sweet girl to be successful, her new family needs to be patient and willing to work with her on basic training and manners." Pacie is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative and microchipped! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $275.
 
 

Glinda, a Chihuahia/Terrier mix
 
 
Glinda is a 10 week old female Chihuahua/Terrier mix and she weighs just over 3 pounds. She should stay under 10 pounds full grown, but we can't promise that! Her foster mom says, "What a sweet baby she is! Glinda is a bit shy at times, as she will sit back and watch her fur sisters/brothers play with each other and with toys but will join in on the fun when she's ready.  She loves to run around the yard and play chase with her puppy and human friends. When you pick her up she just melts into your arms.Glinda is in the process of being crate trained and housetrained but of course with being just a baby is still having accidents. Her new family will need to know that she needs to eat every few hours due to her size, as well as go outside to potty just as often. She is a very tiny little girl so will she need a family who will remember that she is very delicate. She can not go to a home where she will be alone all day, or with young children."Glinda is spayed, up to date on vaccines, on heart worm prevention and microchipped! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $325.
 
 

Bindi, a Chihuahua/Terrier mix
 
Bindi is a 10 week old female Chihuahua/Terrier mix and she weighs just over 4 pounds. She should stay under 10 pounds full grown, but we can't promise that! Her foster mom says, "Bindi is a total sweetheart. She loves when it's playtime out in the yard, as she loves to roll around in the grass and play with her toys. At times she will sit back and watch her fur siblings play but for the most part she's all in it. Bindi seems to be a very smart girl. She seems eager to learn new things. Bindi is in the process of being crate trained and housetrained. She will need a family that understands "the puppy phase" and help her learn right from wrong.
 
 Her new family will need to know that she needs to eat every few hours due to her size, as well as go outside to potty just as often. She is a very tiny little girl so will she need a family who will remember that she is very delicate. She can not go to a home where she will be alone all day, or with young children." Bindi is spayed, up to date on vaccines, on heart worm prevention and microchipped! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $325.
 
 

MC, a Schnauzer mix
 
MC is a four month old Schnauzer mix puppy and he weighs about 14 pounds. He should stay under 30 pound full grown, but we can't promise that! His foster mom says, "MC is a mellow puppy with soulful brown eyes. He has a very gentle temperament. We've never heard him bark, even when the other dogs are barking like crazy! 
 
Although the first part of MC's life was less than ideal (he came from a puppy mill/hoarding case), he is already learning his important puppy skills like housetraining, walking on a leash and climbing the stairs. He can be a little skittish when you reach for him from above, but he happily walks up to humans and gives lots of love and kisses. MC can be hesitant to enter his crate, but easily sleeps through the night once he's in. He gets along well with other dogs and he is such a gentle little guy that I'm sure he would be ideal for a family with older children! MC is neutered, up to date on vaccines, on heart worm prevention and microchipped! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $300.
 
 

Tank, a Chihuahua mix
 
Tank is a 9 month old male Chihuahua mix and he weighs about 6 pounds! Want the German Shepherd look, but not the size? Take a look at Tank! One ear up, one ear down, and all charm. His foster mom says, "Tank is happy, playful and all the delightful things a puppy should be, including slightly mischievous, so a home prepared for puppy energy and play is needed. 
 
He kennels without complaint, and has had no accidents in the kennel or the house. I kennel him while I am at work, and he seems fine holding it through the day. He loves to hunt lizards and explore in the backyard, so a fenced-in yard would be nice. He gets along well with my dogs, big and small. He is gentle with kids, and seems to like everyone he meets. Tank is ready to roll into your life and capture your heart!" He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative and microchipped!

Juju Bee is a 3-4 year old female Shih Tzu and she weighs about 15 pounds!

Juju Bee 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.
 

Bentley, a Chihuahua/Dachshund mix
 
 
Bentley is an eight month old Chihuahua/Dachshund mix and he weighs just about 6 pounds.  He should stay under 10 pounds full grown, but we can't promise that. His foster mom says,"A ball of energy, Bentley is frisky and loves to run around. He is shy at first but warms up quickly to his human pack. He is very good about going outside to potty. He loves to chew, so a good supply of chew bones is good to have on hand. Bentley is crate trained. Bentley is very timid and it will be a work in progress to earn his trust. However, he is very loving once the ice is broken and will be a very loyal companion. He'd do better with someone who is home most of the time and perhaps another dog or cat as a buddy as part of his pack. He's got the energy of a puppy...wait, he IS a puppy!" Bentley 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.
 

Meet Wilson and Annie!
 
Wilson is a one year old Maltese/Shih Tzu mix and he weighs about 10 pounds. He came into rescue with his bestest friend Annie, a female Shih Tzu, who weighs about 11 pounds and they are looking for a home where they can stay together! Their foster dad says, " Annie (Brown & White) and Wilson (Black & White) are the cutest, sweetest, little couple you'd ever want to meet. The are truly a bonded pair! They are always together... they  sleep together, they eat together and they play together! They are both extremely loving and enjoy being on your lap when watching TV in the evening. They are crated trained, but again prefer to be in a larger crate together. They are housetrained on a schedule and do respond when you ask if they want to go out. 
 
They also ride well in a car and walk fairly well on a leash. They are not yappy dogs at all, just a sweet couple! Both pups are up to date on vaccines, spayed/neutered, heart worm negative and microchipped! Wilson and Annie are fostered in the Orlando area and their adoption donation is $500.
 
 

Bob Barker, a Bichon/Poodle mix
 
Meet Bob Barker! This 2 year old, 17 pound Bichon/Poodle mix guy is a happy and outgoing pup! His name doesn't mean that he is a huge "barker" per se (unless left alone), but more so because is outgoing and greets everyone, much like a gameshow host! His foster mom says, "Comical, smart, agile, and friendly, 
 
Bob Barker always seems to have a bit of a smile on his face.Considering he hasn't always been treated so kindly, it's a little bit of a miracle. Bob will need a poodle savvy home with a part or full time companion because he isn't a fan of being alone, and he particularly doesn't like it when you are on one side of the door, and he is on the other. When he is alone, he can be very vocal, so he is not well-suited for apartment living. He knows tricks and he tries very hard to please and is happiest sitting alongside you or even draped on top of you. He gets along beautifully with other dogs and ignores cats! Bob Barker 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.
 
 

Peanut Butter, a Yorkie mix
 
 
 

Peanut Butter is a 2 year old female Yorkie mix and she weighs about 4 pounds.  She came from a hoarding/neglect situation and is learning that life as a beloved pet is a really good thing! Her foster mom says, "She is an extremely sweet little girl but extremely scared.  She is working on her housetraining, but will need someone to work with her and who is home a lot as she is tiny and needs to go out often.  She loves to have dinner and loves to play with her foster sister, CocoBean. Peanut Butter lets my husband pick her up and is working on trusting me just as much, but it is a slow process with her  She does crawl in bed with us to snuggle up to CocoBean.  She needs a home without small kids and  a very patient new mom and dad to work with her and build her confidence. She has learned to play with her tennis ball, although she generally does it by herself and will occasionally play with one of the stuffed dog toys too.  It's very cool to watch her come out of her shell. The reward will be worth it though, she is such a special little girl!" Peanut Butter is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative and microchipped! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $275.

 
 

Drogo, a Shih Tzu
 

Drogo is a 1-2 year old male Shih Tzu and he weighs about 11 pounds.  Sadly, Drogo's previous family didn't properly car for him and he arrived in rescue heart worm positive, he has since been treated, and is doing great, and really enjoying "pup life" again after his confinement for the treatment!  His foster mom says, "Drogo really did OK while crated for HW confinement, he just barked his displeasure when he wanted to play and run around but couldn't. He'sjust now getting used to the other dogs; in the beginning he had a Napoleon attitude and would start trouble for no apparent reason; we worked on that using “time out” and rewards and he now seems to understand how to interact responsibly.  He loves to go outside but usually comes back in when called.  

 
A bonus is that he ignores the cat. He is doing well with his housetraining - he just needed to have a schedule set for him.  He loves to play with his ball all by himself, throwing it, rolling with it, talking to it; he’s having a great time! He also loves to run with the other dogs or by himself in circles. Afterward, he loves to hop into the doggie pool and stretch out in the cool water. At night, he heads into the bedroom  early and curls up in his doggie bed and typically sleeps through the night.  He’s come a long way and we love him more every day. Drogo is neutered, up to date on vaccines, on heart worm prevention, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! Heis fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $250.
 
 

Olaf, a Sheltie/Pommeranian mix
 
Olaf is a 2 year old male Pom/Sheltie mix and he weighs about 20 pounds! His foster mom says, "Olaf is a happy, outgoing and a born lap dog, He will make a great steadfast companion for someone in a single family home. Crates aren't his favorite and he will bark if he can see you, but settles down when you are out of sight. His Sheltie side gives him the gift of gab and his Pomeranian half just wants to be a lap ornament! It makes him a wonderful friend.! He is very lovey - a great little dog, gets along great with our dog, ok with cats just barks at them! Olaf is a big puppy with a beautiful Sheltie coat.
 
 He wants to be by your side (or on top of you) all the time. He enjoys walks and running around with his furry friends. He does well with other dogs and cats and is working on his housetraining. He has a little separation anxiety and would do better with someone who is home often. He's such a lover and will make a great companion for someone.

 Along with Sportsy’s sweet and docile personality, she is very good with older kids and would be a great family dog.  Sportsy is really looking forward to a loving home and hopes you’ll choose her as a part of your life." she is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and has had her teeth cleaned! Sportsy is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $275.
 
 

Dante, a Schnauzer/Maltese mix
 
Dante is a 2 year old Schnauzer/Maltese mix and he weighs about 12 pounds. His foster mom says, "Dante arrived at our home very shy, scared, and quiet, and at first he wouldn’t eat! What a change he has made though! Now that he knows he’s loved, he has blossomed into a confident, happy dog! He loves to play with his foster fur-bother or anyone else that will play with him. 
 
If he had it his way, they would have someone outside playing with them all afternoon, everyday, so a fenced had is a must, as just several walks on a leash is not enough for this energetic boy!A playful 4-legged housemate is also a must for a happy Dante! He ignores the cat and loves to snuggle in the bed at night and stays there quietly til morning. He is housetrained on a schedule as long as he has a few days to learn it. If possible, he’s learned to play and talk more than ever. He’s constantly on the go but when it’s bedtime, he needs to be pressed up right against me. Sometimes he wrestles too hard with the little ones, but listens when we tell him to back off. He makes us laugh with his antics!" Dante is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative and microchipped! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $250.
 
 

Sampson, a Shih Tzu/Lhasa Apso mix

Aside from that, he is a bright and lovable companion, ready to be your clown! He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! Sampson is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $275.
 

Buckles, a Havanese/Shih Tzu mix
 

Buckles is a five year old male Havanesey/Shih Tzu mix and he weighs about 15 pounds!  His foster mom says, "Buckle's personality has really started to show since he is settled in now.  He has become very playful and will grab a toy and shake it like crazy or chase it when you throw it.  He also wants to play with the other dogs but they are not that interested.  His favorite thing to do is to go for a walk.  He LOVES it and is always ready when the leash comes out.  Buckles enjoys lounging on the back patio or just chilling out in the yard too.  He is housetrained, doesn’t jump on furniture and is not a big barker.  

 
He can be a little wary of strangers but once he is sure they are ok he will want all the attention.  Buckles was diagnosed with arthritis in one shoulder and it does not seem to bother him but he will need a family that will keep up with his care.  He loves to get scrubbies and when you rub his belly he will twist back and forth with a goofy smile on his face.  He gets along with cats and all the other dogs in the house.  He rides well in the car and is always up for a trip to the store as long as he can be with you. Buckles is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative and microchipped!

Vivianne, a Schnauzer mix
 

Vivianne is a 1-2 year old female Schnauzer mix, and she weighs about 11 pounds!  Her foster mom says, "Vivianne constantly wants to play. She doesn't care if it's with humans, dogs or cats. She does chase the cats around. She loves toys. Especially cloth toys (which she chews on) and tennis balls (which she chases like a bullet). She has a tendency to herd all the tennis balls to one location in the back yard. A fenced yard is very important because she loves to run around and explore. 

 
She is very good about coming back inside from the yard when called. She slipped out the front door a couple times when we first got her, but has now learned that that is not OK. She is housetrained with an occasional accident. She can be overbearing with some dogs, but at the dog park she will roll over submissively when some other dogs run up to her. She would probably be great with a family with active, older kids, or anyone with lots of energy. Vivianne is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative and microchipped! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $275.

Their foster mom says, "Both Kit and Kat are adorable little dogs! They wrestle just like all sisters seem to do and Kit likes to chase after my dog when playing catch while the Kat is just as pleased sitting by my side. They both will melt in your arms for a good cuddle and Kat will let you cuddle her all day. They are both walking well on a leash. Kit wants to explore while the Kat is happy trotting at your side. As far as housetraining, they are still puppies, so we do still have a few accidents occasionally but they do well with a schedule. They are aware of people that pass by the house and are quick to alert me. Very vocal but very fun loving dogs. Two sweet little sisters!" Kit is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative and microchipped! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $275.

Trouble, a Mixed Breed
 

Trouble is a 20 pound one year old male Schnauzer/Shih Tzu/Lhasa mix with soulful brown eyes and a soft glossy black coat. His foster mom says, "Happy and enthusiastic, Trouble hasn't met a stranger.  His bark is surprisingly big for his size, but fortunately he doesn't bark a lot!  Playful, joyful, and bouncy, he is an energetic, good natured guy that would fit incredibly well with an active family! Contrary to his name, he is really a very good boy who isn't trouble at all!  He is housetrained, and likes to go for walks!  He sleeps in bed with me, and he really only does bark to alert that someone is at the door.  He loves playing with his toys, and is a respectful boy - he won't even beg while you eat dinner! Trouble is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative and microchipped. Heis fostered in the Orlando area and his adoption donation is $275.

 
 
 

Jazzy, a Shih Tzu
 

Jazzy is a three year old female Shih Tzu and she weighs about 11 pounds. She came into rescue with an old eye injury, most likely from a squabble with a cat, although she ignores cats, so most likely one went after her. After seeing the opthamalogist, we know that she does have vision in the eye and although a cataract did form at the site of injury, they feel it is not going to progress and she is doing great! Her foster mom says, "Jazzy is a quiet little girl. She will come when you call her, but is not obnoxious in seeking out attention. She likes to roam the yard while we are outside, but hangs by herself and isn't caught up in playtime with our other dogs. 

 
She doesn't interact with them much, but rather watches them. At night she sleep quietly in a crate with the door open. She ignores the cat too. I have a fenced yard, so I can’t comment on leash walking with her. I think with love and patience, she will blossom into a wonderful and loyal companion! Jazzy 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.
 
 

Miscie,a Standard Poodle
 
Miscie is a five year old, 23 pound female, small Standard Poodle. Her foster mom says, "Miscie is a very sweet and loving girl. She enjoys human companionship and is always by your side. She is a real cuddler. She always has a tail wiggle and a smile on her beautiful face. Miscie is very active and loves to run and play. She also loves tennis balls and soft squeaky toys. She is easy to train because like most poodles she wants to please. She has some submissive behavior because her previous home enviroment was lacking a gentle hand. She came to FLDR having been medically neglected with a large and painful bladder stone. It was removed and she has recovered very well. She is now on a special veterinarian diet to prevent a recurrance of the stones. 
 
We are still working on her housetraining because her bladder was weakened due to the surgery. The bladder will strengthen again given a little time and patience. Miscie is a great companion dog with a big heart full of love, hugs and kisses!" She is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had her teeth cleaned! Miscie is fostered in the Lakeland area, and her adoption donation is $250.
 
 

Duke, a Maltese/Poodle mix
 

Duke is a 4 year old male Malti-Poo and he weighs about 18 pounds!  He had a rough start in life, coming from a puppy mill/hoarding situation, and has learned that not all humans are bad.  He does take some time to warm up to you, and can be nervous around strangers.  For that reason, a home with a fenced yard would be best, so that he doesn't have to be leashed walked for potty time.  His foster mom says, "Duke is a very sweet boy!  He has come a long way in the time we have had him with us - he has learned to play well with the other dogs and share!  He is eating well, and is house trained.  He sits on command, and is very food motivated!  

 
He sleeps in his crate quietly and will snuggle up on the couch once he knows you are his buddy!  Overall, Duke is a good dog.  He's not much of a barker but does bark when strangers come around. He's very protective of his human. Likes to run around the backyard so he will definitely need a fence in yard. He would do better without small children and lots of activity. Duke is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative and microchipped. He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $250
