Mia and Rusty, Poodles
Meet Mia and Rusty! Mia is a 14 year old silver, female Toy Poodle, and she weighs about 6 pounds. Her life partner, Rusty, is a 13 year old male apricot Mini Poodle, and he weighs about 15 pounds.  They arrived in foster care when their previous owner had to move in with family and they could not come along. They have settled into foster care well and are ready to find a forever family to continue their lives with. As they are a bonded pair, we will not separate them, so please do not ask. As they are senior puppers, they have a few senior ailments, but nothing that stops them from living life to the fullest - just things to note for the future.  As is common in small poodles, Mia has a heart murmur, but is not symptomatic and loves life! Rusty has a mild collapsing trachea and it is only noticeable when he gets super excited or really exerts himself, but it quickly vanishes. Both have very mild cataracts, but retain full vision. Their foster mom says, "Rusty and Mia are the sweetest pair of dogs you will ever find. They are completely adjusted to living in a home and love to be around people. They will snuggle with you on the couch all day if that is what you want. Both of them are very easygoing and have accepted any new adventure with calmness and poise, even golf cart rides! They have no problems with other dogs and have not shown any food aggression. They are definitely bonded and will check on one another to make sure everything is OK. They do not hardly show their age at all. They don't play with toys, but they can both jump up on sofas and both like to take short walks and sniff in the yard. Rusty will even chase you a little bit in the house. Rusty has the most soulful eyes and will come up and just look right at you. I think he may have some hearing loss but it does not slow him down. He does not bark much but he will “talk” to you once in a while with sweet little whines. Rusty is good at doing his business outside and both of them need to be taken outside every 4 hours or so on a consistent schedule.  Sometimes Rusty can not hold it overnight (if you leave the water down too late) but he has no problem wearing a belly band, so it is not a big problem. Mia is a little firecracker. She will bark to let me know if someone is going by the house or an animal is outside, but quiets down quickly. The sweetest thing is when she snuggles up to me and puts her tiny little paw on my hand for petting...irresistible. Mia also does her business outside but has to be watched a little more carefully to make sure you get her outside at the right times. Rusty and Mia would do best in a home where people are around most of the time. They just love their people and will melt your heart if you decide to bring them into your home. They are ready to start loving and snuggling with their forever person! Rusty and Mia are neutered/spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and have had their teeth cleaned! They are fostered in the Orlando area, and their combined adoption donation is $250.
How Many Have YOU Helped Save? 




Ariel has found a furever home!

We're not're crying...OK, yes, we are all crying!! We received this amazing card in the mail from Emily, age 9. Emily isn't a child of one of our volunteers or anything, just an amazing young girl with a HUGE heart! We tried to get a great picture, but the text reads: "Dear Dog Rescuers, I am Emily, a 9 year old from Orlando, FL. I just wanted to say Thank You for saving these doggys. Maybe I can be one of you when I grow up. Oh, and I thought this would help a little.  From, Emily." Along with the card were two neatly folded $1 bills. 

Going to be honest, we all ugly cried when reading this, as it has been a very rough couple of months with all of the hoarding case dogs, puppies, and "normal" rescue dogs, that some of us were pretty close to breaking. Then this amazing card from a 9 year old who sees the good in the world and wants to help arrives, and we all are reminded we are making a difference, even on the days when we feel like it is fighting a losing battle. So, this Tuesday, we have a challenge for all of you! In honor of Emily's amazing effort, will you also donate $2 to help the pups? We are going to call it the $2Tuesday Challenge, because $2 really does make a difference, as it adds up! Honestly, if every single one of our 45K+ fans donated just $2, we would not have to fundraise for almost a year - so it DOES make a difference. What we each do makes a difference, and no effort is too small or not helpful! Thanks to Fundraising with a Cause, we have some amazing jewelry donated, and everyone who participates in the $2Tuesday Challenge will be entered for a chance to win one of our two prizes - all you have to do is click on the donation link, and Bam! pups are helped and you are entered! It's a super easy win-win-win way to do good and feel good this Tuesday! We will draw a winner on Wednesday morning:) Please also like, share, react - as that helps spread the word - and for more people to see that everyone can make a difference, sometimes we just need an amazing 9 year old to remind us of that!

AND Emily - we will be sending a special package to you as well!

(Note: We only have a mailing address for Emily, no other way to contact, but we would love to have a pup she helped be able to delvier her special package in person, but we don't want to be creepers and just show up, so if Emily's parents see this, please message us! Otherwise, we will be mailing out a package Friday).

 Welcome 2020!

You can also check out our Amazon Smile Wishlist, which lets you send much needed products right to our pups and foster parents, plus a percentage of your purchases on Amazon are also donated to FLDR when you choose us as your charity of choice!

FLDR wants to save as many puppers as we possibly can and the only way to do this is by YOU joining our team!! We need fosters!! If you live in the Orlando area and would like to help save lives, we want you to join our pack! We are in need of foster homes willing to open their hearts and make a space on the couch for a rescued pup, usually just for a couple of weeks! We take care of the vetting, grooming, medications and you provide the love and snuggles! Please complete the "Adoption Application" and just put in the comments - "Want to Foster" and a Foster Coordinator will reach out to you right away!  

We are also in need of people willing to do transports, usually from Winter Haven to St. Cloud or from north Orlando to St. Cloud a couple of times a month, during a weekday. Please email for more info on helping with Freedom Rides!

Thank you all for helping her really and truly become a "one in a million pup".

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!
