 TimmyTalk!

Hey Friends! I’m Timmy, and welcome to my TimmyTalk! Now before you get all upset with me, I know it’s been a hot minute since my last Talk. Things have been super busy here at FLDR and the humans really have not provided reasonable access to anything that allows me to take over the WiFi. It’s completely unacceptable and no matter how many sternly worded letters I have written to management to address this issue, apparently they have been ignored. Now that I have WiFi I am filing a formal grievance with the PupsUnited Union. Anyhow, apparently one of the humans coughed super hard and broke her ribs and that is part of the issue with why things are very slow moving in terms of updates. I also have several new furfriends here that I am having to help train on the rules of the house, so that has kept me a little busy also. I have also been keeping up with Lark, my furfriend who has been really sick. As you may remember, she came into rescue super skinny and had pneumonia. She was so sick I was honestly worried she wouldn’t make it. Thankfully, with the help of our great vet and MamaJan and Debbie, she pulled through the critical period. It’s been a daily struggle for her though, as she still has a really bad cough from the pneumonia and gags when she drinks. She used to do that when she was eating too but after she was hand fed one small bite at a time for several days, she’s worked through that. The humans have to be very careful with her, because if she chokes and aspirates more food or water, she could go downhill quickly. Lark has had to go back to the vet so many times for rechecks and yesterday had to have a scope down her throat to check on her trachea and esophagus. They were both clear and unobstructed which was a huge relief. The humans are still working on sorting out what exactly all the issues with her health are, but much like my issues, it’s kinda a process to get there. She has gained 4 ounces though, so she is doing great on getting strong like me! I did tell her in my last puptalk that she needs to reinforce that being held 24/7 really helps with strength and healing, and if needed she should be very vocal about explaining this to her management.

Now back to me - my surgery day is quickly approaching - Tuesday is pre-op and Wednesday is the big day!!! I am very excited to be able to get all fixed up and start to be a “normal” pup! I’m a little anxious about the surgery itself and the recovery, but the humans assure me I will do great and everything will be ok. They have been right about all this medical stuff so far, so I am trusting them on this one too. I also know the humans are chattering about the cost and fundraising given all the other pups that need FLDR’s help too, like my friend Lark, the eleven other new furfriends that have come in to rescue the past two weeks, with more coming….so, me being me, I made an executive decision and spoke to one of FLDR’s biggest fans because having stressed humans doesn’t help me at all and honestly, I need to be the center of my humans focus at all times. My dear friend said he would love to help me out and offered to match all donations for the next two weeks - up to $20,000!! Yep, you read that right - my friend said if I could raise up to $20,000 he would match that!! That would cover my surgery, my follow up visits, Lark’s continued care, all the new pups that have come in and leave some for other pups that need our help soon (which, between you and me, if this “weather thing” happens next week, it could be a LOT of pups).

You can help me meet my match by donating right (or any of the buttons really). All donations will be matched and as long as I can get to WiFi I will be conducting daily TimmyTalks on Facebook with progress updates! I *may* have to find a stand in during my surgery unless Dr. S can lend me a helping paw and access to a tablet…..anyhow, please like, share, spread the word. Help my TimmyTalk go viral (like in a good viral way, not in a sick way please, trying to stay healthy and strong over here!)

Thank you all so much for being my friends and coming to my TimmyTalk!

PS - Why are you still here? Please go lend a helping paw for my match. Yes, you. Please and thank you.

Ivy, a Chihuahua mix
 
Meet Ivy! Ivy is an approximately 4- 5 year old female Chihuahua mix and she weighs about 10 pounds. Ivy arrived in rescue as part of a hoarding case, has settled into foster care and now she is now living her best life! Her foster mom says, "Ivy is very energetic and would really love to join a family with another dog as she loves the company
of other dogs, but she would be OK as an only dog as long as her humans were home most of the time. She loves loves to walk! She would be great with someone who wants a dog to walk with. She doesn’t bark at people or other dogs. She lives to chase geckos! While we have had her she has not met a cat so we don’t know how that would go. She loves her humans and wants to know where they are at all times. She would probably do best in a home where humans are around most of the day because she has some separation anxiety. She is house trained on a schedule and we try to take her out about every two hours and has caught on well to that routine. She also will use a puppy pad if that
is her only choice at the time. A securely fenced yard would be wonderful as she is pretty small and loves to explore. Ivy can be quite vocal at times, especially when you return home and she is so
excited to see you so shared walls may not work out well. She is a sweet and loving dog and deserves a great forever home. Experience with Chihuahuas would be a plus as she can be quirky, like only
wanting to sleep under the covers." Ivy 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 $300.

If you live in the Orlando area and would like to help save lives, we want you to join our pack!

Welcome to Florida Little Dog Rescue Group!

Florida Little Dog Rescue rehabilitates unwanted, abused and abandoned little dogs and places them in loving and responsible homes to live out their lives as cherished family members.  We would love for you to join us by adopting a dog, volunteering as a foster home or donating money to help save the dogs.  We are a 501(c)3 Charitable Organization, and all donations to FLDRG are tax deductible!

Save a Dog on Death Row!
They need YOUR help right now!!

Please help us save dogs on Death Row at local Animal Controls. These are dogs that can't be adopted out directly from Animal Control, mainly for medical reasons. When they can't be adopted, they need a rescue to save them when their time runs out.  These pups desperately need our help, we are their last hope!

 Florida Little Dog Rescue Group rescues dogs from all over the state of Florida, but our main focus is the Central Florida area.  Our volunteers live anywhere from Tallahassee to Tampa, but all of our dogs are fostered in the Orlando area.  We are 100% volunteer-based, which means no overhead or salary costs.  Your donation is used directly for dog care. We do not receive government funds. We are entirely supported by charitable donations.

We ensure that each dog is spayed/neutered, vaccinated, tested for heartworms and other parasites, examined by a vet and treated for any known conditions prior to adoption.  All known medical information is fully disclosed to new families.  While awaiting adoption, the dogs live in foster homes that provide love, patience and TLC to the pups! A pup's stay in foster care could vary from several days to several weeks, depending upon the dog's conditions and needs.  Unlike shelter or kennel living, fostering the pups in a home environment allows us to personally evaluate each dog for behavior and temperament issues.  We are able to see how they interact and react to other animals and children, if they are house trained, like to go for walks, play ball, etc. and that makes it easier to know what type of home/family would be best suited for them!

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!
