Luna, a Min-Pin/Chihuahua mix
 
Meet Luna! Luna is an 11 year old female Min-Pin/Chihuahua mix and she weighs about 7 pounds. She arrived in rescue when her previous family could no longer provide her the home they felt she needed. She has settled into foster care nicely and is ready to find a forever home to call her own.  Her foster mom says, "Luna is a bit shy at first when meeting new people but once she warms up her whole body wags with excitement! She loves to give you kisses (although she’s not overly kissy) once you are best friends. Luna can be dog selective and would do best as an only pup. She is not a fan of sharing her blankets, treats or her food! She likes to snuggle in the bed with us at night, however she does get down to get in her own bed (this could change with her not having to share her space with another fur pup).
 
Luna is not a big barker unless you are home and have left the room and do not allow her to go with you. Will also bark for a few mins after you leave the home but quiets down quickly. Luna is not of fan of vacuums and will bite at the cord while in use so it’s best to put her in her crate while in use for her safety. Luna is housetrained on a schedule, crate trained and walks great on a harness/leash. There are times you can see her scanning the yard to see if she can find an escape route .. your fence will need to be very secure and checked frequently for any holes!!  Luna is a sweet lil girl and is ready to find her forever home." Luna is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and had has her teeth cleaned.  She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $250.
 
 

Schotzie, a Beagle/Hound mix
 
Meet loveable Schotzie!   Schotzie is a very sweet, 9-10 month old female pup and she currently weighs about 35 pounds. Our veterinary experts concur that there’s a lot of small Hound in her heritage, but we don’t know about the rest.  Some ancestor(s) passed on the high curled tail, black and tan markings and soft triangle drop ears.  About knee high, she is nearly but not yet full grown and is projected to be a couple of inches taller and forty-something pounds full grown, but we can’t know for certain.  This cute girl is energetic and somewhere between puppy innocence and rowdy adolescent on a mission.  Currently her missions are hunting lizards, finding lost items outdoors, vaulting baby gates, playing with chew and squeaky toys, and wearing out her older, smaller playmates.  You hopefully have a job in mind for her like hiking or running buddy, agility dog, or other high-energy companion pursuit.  Ok, maybe lots of walks and outdoor romping.  Please keep in mind that at 10 months she is still a puppy in many ways, with all the antics and puppy issues that come with that stage.  And since she has a predominantly hunting dog heritage, she can go all day.  Energetic people and an active lifestyle are a match for this sweet girl.  A fenced back yard is a must, as is someone who is home more often than not.  
 
Schotzie is dog social and has been very pleasant around our dogs, all who are smaller and older.  She is sometimes too rambunctious for them as well as being bigger, so a youngish and energetic companion of her own size would be best. Tiny dogs and cats are not recommended.  Schotzie’s temperament is very nice:  affectionate, attentive, and friendly! She has a big bark but is not very barky overall. Though nice, at this stage she is bouncy, nosey and a bundle of energy.  She is very trainable and is beginning to learn her basic commands including sit and down.  She’s pretty good at leash walking too.  More house experience, socialization, and patient training is  needed to reinforce her calm and obedient side.  She is crate trained and will let you know when she needs to go out. She should not be over crated!!  But needs frequent outdoor time and exercise to positively direct her energy. For this reason, someone must be home more often than not.  She is learning to settle but is not ready to have the run of the house unsupervised, nor should she be crated for more than an hour or two (or three) at a time other than for overnight.  Here she sleeps quietly through the night in her enclosure or in bed with us. Her adopter should understand that Schotzie is at the adolescent stage and be willing to offer interaction, training time and lots of exercise opportunities.  She is really adorable and has been so happy and grateful to have a kind, inside place to be.  We just love her! Schotzie is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and microchipped! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $300.
 
 

Prince, a Yorkie/Poodle mix
 
Meet Prince! Prince is 10 year old Yorkie/Poodle mix and he weighs about 10 pounds.  He arrived in rescue when his previous family could no longer care for him. He has settled into foster care nicely and is ready to find a forever home to call his own. His foster mom says:  Fetch?  Do you like a dog that plays? Then Prince is your boy! He is about a 10 all the way around! Prince was a bit standoff-ish and his jealousy was obvious when he came into foster with his buddy. As a test we split them up and on his own, with the other pups in the house not a threat to his human time, he has had no issues. He went from standoff-ish to cuddly immediately. This leads to the recommendation that he be an ONLY pup in the home as Prince loves attention – all the attention. He will let you know when he wants more attention and when he has had enough.  He is vocal in that way. He wants to be within sight of his human, not always up next to them, but he is quite the cuddler when he chooses to be. He chooses to be close often, happiest with a toy close by.  Prince is not fully housetrained, we are working on it, but he finds and uses the puppy pad regularly. Until it was determined he was making use of the puppy pad he wore a belly band with no problem.  He loves stuffed toys with squeakers, not into balls of any size or sound.  Stuffed animals is where it is at, for him!  He will play fetch for hours, taking breaks, as needed.
 
Prince will carry the toy of choice around, waiting for you to take it and play.  He is also guilty of de-squeaking those toys, so sturdy ones are recommended. He chews the toys but not shoes or other items around the house, but he has been known to carry his foster Dad’s thick boot socks around.  He sleeps on the bed with his human, using a ramp to get up to the bed without any problem. When the jealousy comes out, Prince exhibits a snarl but he does not nip or bite. The snarl is a bit scary, but the sound is to let you know he is bothered by something.  Prince has not been around cats and we do not recommend small children with him, as he does have a cataract and can get startled easily.  As he has exhibited jealousy with anyone taking his humans attention, it would be recommended that consideration be taken into account by any potential adopter.  Prince is great on the leash, in the car, and will stay by your side, not one to wander off. He currently has a fenced in back yard at his disposal but sticks by his Foster Mom when outside. Inside, Prince will explore but comes back when called. He loves curling up on the couch, the bed, or blankets on the floor but is happiest when close to his human. If you are looking for that faithful companion to cuddle up with, who plays, is easy to take care of and who makes you the center of his universe – look no further – Prince is your guy!" Prince 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.
 
 

Snowball, a Maltese/Poodle mix
 

Meet Snowball! Snowball is an 11 year old male, Maltese/Poodle mix and he weighs about 14 pounds. He arrived in rescue after being adopted previously from an out of state rescue and winding up in a shelter here in Florida. When the previous rescue didn't want to take him back, we took him into care. He has settled into foster care nicely, but would love to find a forever family to call his own. His foster mom says, "Snowball is the best little side kick! His favorite thing to do is nap. He also loves sun bathing. He's very timid and is not much for playing but loves attention. You won't get kisses but you will have those puppy dog eyes and a gentle nudge always politely looking for cuddles. He doesn't bark and he's hard of hearing. He came in with some skin issues, he still does a lot of licking. He is housetrained and Snowball walks well on a leash. He's a good eater and if there is other pet food around he'll help himself but he won't beg for people food. He loves sleeping in his bed on the ground next to his human at night." Snowball 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 $225.

 
 
 

Mo, a Yorkie/Pomeranian mix
 
Meet Mo! Mo is a 1 year old male Yorkie/Pomeranian mix and he weighs about 9 pounds. He wound up scared and afraid at animal control after his family could no longer care for him. He has settled into foster care nicely. His foster mom says, "Mo has been doing well at home. He appears to be housetrained as long as he is on a set schedule and environment he is used to….And it’s not raining, but I believe this is fair for any dog (LOL)! If he does have an accident, it is on the puppy pad that I place in his kennel for him but it takes up the whole space other than his bed so it's not a hard choice for him to make. Mo is wayyy too interested in our cat, so no cats in his forever home, please. When we are not with him, we have him fully secluded to a kennel in a separate room and take him outside through the garage so that he is never in sight of the cat. This has allowed him to become much more calm and pleasant, as the cat gets him overly excited. He hops right into his kennel no problem and is quiet there except sometimes at work when he hears other dogs outside of his room. He has also been friendly to all my coworkers he has met. 
 
Runs right up to them and hops on their legs wanting to be pet.He absolutely loves going for walks and does great with 30-45 minute walks daily. He does however bark and pull on walks at joggers, bikers and people with dogs. I think the reactivity on walks can be worked on to make him more pleasant to walk and he’s small enough that he’s easy to hang on to, but he can not go to a home in an apartment or condo complex where he will encounter lots of people while he is being walked due to this. It needs to be worked through, but with proper time and patience, slowly. I am unsure if he may be ok with household dogs with proper introduction but for now, he would probably do best as an only dog. Mo also likes to play with his toys and run around chasing them although he doesn't usually think to bring them back to me. He loves chewing on stuffed toys trying to destroy them! He is going to need a family up for all of the puppy challenges and positive reinforcement training." Mo is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and microchipped! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $325.
 
 

Goopy, a Tabby kitten
 
 
Meet Goopy! Goopy is a 3 and a half month old grey Tabby kitten and he weighs about 5 pounds. He arrived in rescue when his mom no longer wanted to feed or care for him at 4 weeks old. He has been cared for in a loving foster home and is ready to find a forever home to call his own.  His foster mom says, " As his foster Mom, I can say he has made tremendous strides since being rescued. Goopy is adventurous but also loving. He enjoys long naps and playing with everything that’s he’s not supposed to as all kittens do. He is used to being an indoor kitty and is litterbox trained. He is full of personality and would make a great addition to a family home!" Goopy is neutered up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped.  He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $25.
