FREEDOM RIDES! Just a FEW of the faces that left with us today! It has been a BUSY day on intake - and it isn't going to let up - we left with seven today, in addition to the four earlier this week, we have commitments to go back for 7 more by Monday, and 5 more at another shelter - all medically needy - three in the picture below are heartworm positive, one is so scared they needed to sedate him just for a heartworm test at the shelter, and one just shakes:( The two puppies you don't see are super tiny. We have a full day of vetting ahead of us tomorrow, and a super busy next few days. I will just be as quick and blunt as possible - we will need help. The vet bills are quickly adding up, and we need helping paws. Our generous friend agreed to match all donations through the weekend, up to $5000. That would be an amazing relief with all of the pups coming in with medical issues. If you can,click on any of the links, and your donation will be matched. We also have a really cool Disney backpack that we will post pictures of tomorrow that we will draw a name for next Friday, all you have to do is donate to help the pups! Please:) Please also like, share, spread the word on your socials.

PS - The pups pictured ALL need vetting, and are not available for adoption inquiries at this time. We have lots of pups ready NOW on the adoptable dogs page of our website, and each one adopted means another foster space opens up:) Thank you for your understanding!

Note: The picture is NOT how the carriers travelled, just how we positioned them so you could see as many faces as possible. Bothersome people would think we would drive with them that way, but yeah, we apparently have to clarify :/

Oscar, a Pomeranian mix
Meet Oscar, a Special Needs Highly Traumatized Senior Pomeranian Mix. Oscar is around 10 years old, and weighs about 13 pounds. He arrived in rescue after being rescued from a puppy mill with over 700 dogs, that was on the HSUS Horrible 100 list. Oscar has come a long way while in foster care since February, but still has a ways to go. He will need a very loving, special person to care for him. His foster mom says, "If you are a compassionate, capable, tough and experienced dog whisperer, then meet Oscar. Oscar is a handsome Pomeranian mix that remains only partially socialized. He came to us in the spring after being rescued from the HSUS “Horrible Hundred” dog hoarding/puppy mill case in Georgia. He was one of 700 (!!) dogs who had spent their lives in cages, filth, isolation, hunger and worse. Some had lived packed so tightly in small crates that they did not know how to lie down and slept leaning against the walls. Some of these dogs didn’t make it. Some, especially the younger ones, came around through kind and supportive fostering and became happy and loving pets. Oscar has come a long way but is not yet a finished pet candidate and frankly might not ever fully adjust. Due to previous neglect, he has 5 remaining teeth and a mild and managed seizure disorder. When he came to rescue he fought, bit, defecated, urinated and struggled his way through every human encounter and still resists many. He did not understand the concept of a house, a treat, affection, a leash walk, a kind human, or anything a normal dog might know. Many tears have been shed on behalf of this dog. Increasingly these have been happy tears, though. Oscar has learned to love living in a house. Though still reactively terrified of most humans, he has bonded with and accepted one or two men whom he allows to handle and love him, giving a happy dance when his man comes home. As long as everyone else give him his space, he is mild mannered and a quiet, unobtrusive presence in the house. He loves walks on a leash and has very good leash manners. He plays with toys and fur friends, is very dog social and thinks that cats are fascinating. He is clean in his safe enclosure and will do his business in a fenced yard. We still use a belly band, though, when he is free in the house and he will fear defecate if cornered. He happily follows his dog family in the household routine, follows his human(s) to the yard or back to the house and comes when called even when he resists handling. He is not at all aggressive or reactive unless he is forced into being handled. Otherwise he follows behind for activities, comes close enough for treats, naps in one of his safe spaces, or just keeps his distance. He is getting some professional training to see if we can educate him to some coping skills we couldn’t develop through love alone. If Oscar could choose, he would like a fairly calm home with a nice man as his primary person and where he would only have to closely interact with that one human. Other household humans are ok, as long as they don’t bother him much. His brain seems to have decided “one special person good, all others not.” He definitely needs a dog companion or two (he likes dogs of all sizes and ages) to give him guidance and confidence. He has to have a yard, as there might be times when getting him into a harness could be difficult. We do not underestimate the challenge this dog might be to an adopter, so please think it through. If you have the skills and desire to help and love a dog with these types of issues, give Oscar a safe place to land!" Oscar 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 $125.

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!
