Tammy, a Chihuahua/Beagle mix
 

Meet Tammy! Tammy is a 5 year old female Chihuahua/Beagle mix and she weighs about 22 pounds. She arrived in rescue when her previous home could no longer care for her. Tammy has been confused about her situation, but is trying to learn to trust again and find her forever family. Her foster dad says, "Tammy is a very sweet, but very shy girl. She is shy and keeps her distance but still comes to be near you then backs away. She’s working on trust but is so sweet and loving once she surrenders to you. 

 

She has been around dogs of all sizes and is okay with that. Tammy absolutely needs another dog in her forever home as she has anxiety when she is "all alone". She has not been around cats or children. She is crate trained, but you have to put her in but is starting to go in on her own. She currently is sleeping the night in her crate and rides in her crate in the car. Tammy is working on house training and leash skills. She will require patience to gain your trust and that will take time. She’s so cute and sweet she’s hard to resist! You can’t help but love her." Tammy 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 $275.

 
 

Willie, a Chihuahua mix
 
Meet Willie! Willie is a 1 year old male Chihuahua mix and he weighs about 10 pounds. He arrived in rescue after winding up at animal control because the home he was living in had too many dogs. Willie was scared and nervous, so he came to rescue. He has settled into foster care nicely and is ready to find a forever home to call his own.  His foster mom says, "Willie is a very handsome boy with the most beautiful eyes! He was super nervous and shy when he first came into our home. Now that he has settled in, he is super loving and sweet. He loves to shower you with kisses and loves a good belly rub while hanging out on your lap. When meeting new people, it takes him about 10 -15 mins to warm up.  Willie can be very playful at times. He likes to put your hand in his mouth and nibble on your fingers (totally playing/not being mean.) For this reason, I will not put him with small children as it may scare them. 
 

Willie came in with other dogs that he gets along great with but will need to do slow intros if you have another pup in the home.He would do best with pups his size or smaller as bigger ones make him nervous.  Willie is not fully house trained yet but we are working on this. He is terrified of a leash and collar so a fenced in backyard is a must while he learns leash training. Update: He gets along with large dogs who can tolerate his “energy”. Recommend a home with a dog buddy to help him with his anxiety when left without his person. He walks very well on leash with his dog buddy. He is very treat motivated and needs redirection with happy nipping and a sturdy chew toy helps his chewing needs. He can now tolerate short stays in sturdy crate with decreased anxiety but would not do well for a full work day in crate. He attaches to his person and is slowly doing better letting other people pet him without immediately running away. Willie doesn't tolerate cates wouldn't do well in a home with younger children due to overstimulation/noise and chewing hazards with small toys. He will put any small found item in his mouth to chew including yard choking hazards so he needs to be watched when playing in a fenced yard." Willie is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchip and has had his teeth cleaned! He is fostered in the Orlando area and his adoption donation is $300.

 
 

Mila, a Yorkie
 

Meet Mila! Mila is a 10+ year old female Yorkie and she weighs about 6 pounds. She arrived in rescue when her previous family could no longer care for her. She has settled into foster care, but is ready for her forever home. Her foster mom says she would like to introduce herself:  Hi! Hi! Hi!  I am Mila (but I answer to Itzy, the nickname my foster mom gave me because I am very small.)  I am super shy at first and will run and hide until I feel comfortable.  I will also fool you into believing that I am also super quiet.  This is far from the truth!  Once I become comfortable, I will guard my house with furious barking from any strangers passing by (no shared walls please). 
 

I am mostly crate trained, with only a few accidents while I am getting over my shyness.  I get along with other dogs just fine and love to play and run (I am more active than my age suggests), although my favorite thing to do is sit on the couch with my human.  I am still afraid of anything new or loud noises.  I don’t play with toys too much and am wary of treats but give me a sunny spot to curl up in and I am content.  I am getting used to being held, but at this time don’t like to be carried around, although I am getting more used to being cuddled and like it very much, I may never become a pocket pup. Mila is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and microchipped. She is fostered in the Orlando area and her adoption donation is $275.

 
 

Primrose, a Chihuahua/Terrier mix
 

Meet Primrose! Primrose is a 4 year old female Chihuahua/Terrier mix and she weighs about 9 pounds. She arrived in rescue after being found as a stray and not being claimed at animal services. She was in rough shape, missing a lot of her hair, but her coat is growing back in nicely and she is ready to find family to call her own. Her foster mom says, "Primrose is a wonderful and energetic pooch, kind and gentle. She bonds instantly and gets along well with dogs of all sizes. She is curious about the cats but means them no harm. She walks well on a leash but will stop and be distracted by activity near her. 

 
She is not crated at all and loves to sleep in the bed. Due to her small size, she would do best with dog savvy older kids. No small children or frail adults, as her enthusiasm may result in a tumble. She is housetrained on a schedule but her petite size will require frequent walks. She loves attention and is very appreciative when she receives it. She can be a bit of a barker at times, so no shared walls for this sweet girl. She is looking for her perfect family. Could that be you?" Primrose is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, mircochipped and has had her teeth cleaned. She is fostered in the Flagler Beach area and her adoption donation is $325.
 
 

Tucker, a Havanese
 
Meet Tucker! Tucker is an 11 year old male Havanese and he weighs about 13 pounds. He arrived in rescue when his previous family had too many dogs and could no longer care for him. Tucker is a very good boy and has limited range of motion in his right rear leg. It's arthritis from old injury that did not heal correctly and there is nothing surgical that can be done, but he doesn't let it bother him! His foster mom says, "Tucker has a mind of his own but don’t think because he’s older, he’s not quick when he wants to be. Most of the day he is pretty chill though. He likes lying on the furniture or on the cool tile. He sometimes get the zoomies and requires belly rubs after. Tucker does not like to be left alone and security cameras have caught him voicing his opinion on the matter, so he must be in a home with no shared walls. He’s not a big fan of toys, but LOVES treats. Tucker has been working on his housetraining by getting treats afterwards, per his demands. 
 

He even knows the command “sit,” but sometimes has selective hearing for that word. Tucker would probably be ok with another older dog if they would leave him alone, as I think younger dogs would bother him too much. He would be just fine as an only dog as well so he can get all the belly rubs. I think younger kids would bother him, so only older children for his new family. Tucker sometimes sleeps in the human bed with the use of doggie steps and sometimes he sleeps on a dog bed in the next room." Tucker 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 $250.

 
 

Loki, a Puggle mix
 

Meet Loki! Loki is a 3 year old male puggle mix and he weighs about 20 pounds. He arrived in rescue when his previous family was no longer able to care for him. He has settled into foster care, but would love a family to call his own. His foster mom says, "Hi everybody, meet Loki. Like his namesake, he is a little mischievous and likes to chase squirrels and lizards. He does not have an “off button” and is always trying to play. Tug is one of his favorite games and he likes it when the humans play too. He is working on his house training and is improving with more of a set schedule. He will sometimes use a potty pad as a backup. Loki walks well on a leash but will need a harness for walks, or even a quick potty break. He has a tendency of trying to escape his collar. Once he warms up to you, Loki likes to be around people and will follow you around the house.
 

 

He wants to sleep on a human bed, but he doesn’t stop playing so if you want any sleep, you’ll have to put him up for the night. Loki doeesn't like to cuddle. He currently sleeps on a dog bed in the primary bathroom and is pretty good with sleeping through the night. Loki will play with other dogs but should really be the only dog in his forever home as he doesn’t like to share his food or treats and gets anxious when other pups are around at meal/snack time. I don’t think he would like to have a cat or any small animals. He also doesn’t realize his strength, so he shouldn’t have a family with younger than 13 year old kids around." Loki 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.

 
 

Molly, a Terrier mix
 

Meet Molly! Molly is a 8-10 year old female Terrier mix and she weighs about 10 pounds. She is a sweet girl who wound up at the shelter very scared, with an eye infection and a nearly ruptured eye. We had her eye removed and she is feeling much better. She has now settled into foster care nicely and is ready to find her forever family! Her foster mom says, "Molly may be totally blind but that doesn’t stop her!  Once she gets to know the “lay of the land” you would never know she is blind. She loves to play with other dogs and can wrestle with the best of them.  She can’t chase them and often times when she is playing her playmate will run off to start a game of chase and Molly looks confused like “where did they go?”  She loves scrubbies and will get very excited when you are paying attention to her.  

 
At times when Molly doesn’t know where she is, she will army crawl around trying to figure a way out or to get to something familiar.  If she is looking for you, she will go from room to room making little noises.  If you hear her and call to her she will make a bee line to your voice.  Molly loves to snuggle in bed at night and will sleep in her foster mom’s arms to make sure she doesn’t fall off the bed.  Strangers can be scary to her but with a proper introduction and a little time for her to recognize a voice she is fine.  She has not been walking on a leash and will use the piddle pad if she can’t get out.  Molly would do great with another playful pup to help “show” her around and guide her through new experiences." Molly is up to date, spayed, current on vaccines, heartworm negative and has had her teeth cleaned. She is fostered in the Orlando area and his adoption donation is $225.
 
 

Copper, a Goldendoodle
 

Please note Copper is not hypoallergenic - he does shed!

Meet Copper! Copper is an 8 month old male Goldendoodle and he weighs about 40 pounds. He is still a puppy and growing, which means he could grow to be larger than 50 pounds. We just want his new family to be prepared for however big he may get! Copper arrived in rescue when his litter was surrendered. He's been doing great in foster care, but is ready for a forever family to call his own. That family must be ready for all things puppy including leash training, house training, continued socialization and learning what is OK to chew and what isn't. His foster mom says, "Copper is a very energetic and playful pup. When he arrived in foster care, he was extremely shy of humans and would back away and run if approached.  However, he now comes for pets and affection.  He's become more confident, however, it will probably take several days for him to bond with new folks. His adopters will need to respect this behavior and go slowly. 

 

He barks at strangers and new sounds, so no shared walls.  He goes into a crate willingly, enticed with a milk bone treat.  He is housetrained on a schedule and will bark during the night to let me know he needs to go out.  He is working on his leash training and his new family will need to continue this training with positive reinforcement, a harness and a secure fenced yard. He loves to run in the yard and play with my other dogs of similar size and enthusiasm. He ignores my small dogs and he's ok with dog savvy cats. Cooper is teething and likes his puppy toys. Beware he has no discretion about the definition of an appropriate chewable and will munch on anything available.  He needs an active, very patient and experienced family, a playful canine friend of comparable size, and a very secure fenced yard (he is a digger). No small children or frail adults, as his energy and puppy incoordination may result in a tumble.  Share your home with Copper and help him express all the love and fun he has to offer!"

Copper is neutered, up to date on vaccines, on flea and heartworm prevention and microchipped. He is fostered in the Flagler Beach area, and his adoption donation is $400.

 
 

Wallie, a Maltese/Yorkie mix
 
Meet Wallie! Wallie is a 4 year old male Maltese/Yorkie mix and he weighs about 10 pounds. He arrived in rescue after living in a home with too many dogs that could not properly care for him. He has settled into foster care well and is ready to find his forever family! His foster dad says, "Wallie is so sweet and loving and loves to be with you! He’s playful and gets along with other dogs of all sizes. He is crate trained but really isn’t to fond of it and definitely lets you know when he’s had enough of it. Wallie is working on his housetraining and I just usually ask if he wants to go out. 
 
He knows the leash but needs additional training for walking. He enjoys exploring the fenced back yard with me and the other pups. Wallie is nervous around fast movements and sudden noises and therefore probably shouldn’t be around small children. He would do well with a family with older children or he’d be happy being spoiled by a family that wants a lap dog companion. "Wallie 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 $375.
 
 

Colt, a Pomeranian
 

Meet Colt! Colt is a 1 year old male Pomeranian and he weighs about 6 pounds. He arrived in rescue when his previous family had too many dogs and simply could not care for him. Colt would love to find a patient family willing to work with him on continued socialization. His foster mom says, "Colt loves to play with his toys! He loves to play so much he can be a bit mouthy at times. He's been around all sizes of dogs but I really can’t tell if he prefer small or big dogs, as he barks at some and plays with some. He can also be a bit selective with humans, so he will need someone patient and understanding to continue to work with him. 

 
A home without small children and a lot of people coming and going would be ideal. Colt doesn't like to sleep in his dog bed but he loves to be on a human couch. He can be a bit scared when you are putting his leash on, but he is good walking on the leash, he just seems anxious about the process of getting leashed up for a walk.  We are working on house training and he is doing better with a consistent schedule, but will need someone to continue to work on this with him. Colt loves to cuddle and loves to get his neck scratched." He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! Colt is fostered in the Orlando area and his adoption donation is $375.
 
 

Captain, a Chihuahua
 
Meet Captain! Captain is a 2 year old male Chihuahua mix and he weighs about 13 pounds. He arrived in rescue after winding up at animal services and being heartworm positive. He has been treated and has done great! He is ready to find a forever family to call his own. His foster mom says, "Captain is a funny, energetic and gregarious pooch. He was a little hesitant when he first arrived in foster care, but quickly bonded once treats were rewarded!  Although he gets along with dogs of all sizes, he plays happily with his foster sister who is of similar size, so he'd do well with an active dog of similar size and temperament.  Captain's a little too curious about the cats, so unless yours is dog savvy, a feline free home would be best.  
 
He's housetrained on a regular schedule and does extremely well on a harness with leash.  He barks occasionally at new people and strange noises, so no shared walls.  Captain is not crated, as he is not destructive and snuggles on our bed during the night.  Due to his small size, he would do best with older kids.  No small children or frail adults, as his enthusiasm may result in a tumble. Captain is loving and eager to please.  Open your home and your heart to him and he will bring a smile to your face!" Captain is neutered, up to date on vaccines, on flea and heartworm prevention, microchip and has had his teeth cleaned! He is fostered in the Flagler Beach area and his adoption donation is $300.
 
 

Whaley, a Maltese/Shih Tzu mix
 
Meet Whaley! Whaley is a 4-5 year old male Maltese/Shih Tzu and he weighs about 12 pounds. He arrived in rescue when his previous home had too many dogs and could not properly care for them. He has settled into foster care nicely but is ready for a forever family to call his own. His foster dad says, "Whaley is a super sweet boy that loves attention by just about anyone. He loves people and other dogs of all sizes. He’s working on leash and housetraining so will require a little guidance. He likes to explore the back yard that is fenced with me and enjoys plush toys. 
 
Whaley's a lover and just wants to be with you. He follows me everywhere I go. Whaley’s family can be a quiet home with no children or a family with older children. He is crate trained and is sleeping the night in his crate. This boy is just a joy to have around and wants to go wherever you go!" Whaley 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 $350.
