Gus, an Aussiedoodle
 
Meet Gus!  Gus is a 7 month old, male, Aussiedoodle that is a very sweet loving boy. Gus weighs about 45 pounds and is still growing. He could easily be over 60 pounds when full grown. Gus 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 family to call his own! His foster dad says: He can be a little shy at first but very quickly warms up and wants to be your best friend. He enjoys walks but still need some training when walking. He loves everyone he meets and gets along with dogs of all sizes from very small to very large. 
 
Gus is crate trained and is working on his house manners. If you ask if he needs to go out he’ll let you know. He rides nicely in a car and loves to go with you. Gus enjoys his fenced yard and loves to explore. Don’t forget he’s still a puppy and has lots to learn, but he wants to please. Gus will make a great addition to a lucky family but would probably enjoy having older kids around to play with. Gus has not been around cats so I don’t know how he’d react. Gus just wants a family to share his love with. Gus is neutered, up to date with vaccines, on flea and heartworm prevention and microchipped! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $500.
 
 

Bruce, a Pug
 

Meet Bruce! Bruce is a 3-4 year old male Pug and he weighs about 20 pounds. He arrived in rescue when his previous family could no longer care for him. He has settled into foster care nicely but is ready to find a forever home to call his own!  His foster mom says, "Are you looking for a constant companion?  A second shadow perhaps? Then Bruce is your guy!  Bruce loves people and wants to be with you all the time.  He will follow you everywhere and lay faithfully at your feet for you to finish whatever you are doing.  Since he stays so close, you have to be careful not to trip over him, step on him, etc. He is certainly a "trip hazard"!  He gets along with other dogs but would do best as the only dog so he can get all the attention.  

 
Bruce will scratch at the door when you leave him but he settles down quickly and waits.When you return, he throws you the biggest party. No one is more excited to see you than Bruce!  It doesn't matter if you are gone for 20 minutes or 2 hours, he feels the same.  Bruce is well behaved and hardly ever barks, walks well on a leash and doesn't have a mean bone in his body.  He is a typical pug; snores a little, needs his folds cleaned and makes a ton of silly faces that will keep you laughing.  Bruce is ready to find his forever family!" Bruce 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 $400.
 
 

Clyde, a Mini Goldendoodle
 
Meet Clyde! Clyde is a 2 year old male Mini Goldendoodle and he weighs about 15 pounds, He arrived in rescue after being surrendered by a breeder. He has settled into his foster home nicely, but is looking for a forever home to call his own - but his new family needs to be willing to continue to work with him on his house training.  His foster mom says, "Meet Clyde the Floofinator!  He'd love to meet you! He's yet to meet a person or dog that he hasn't wanted to get to know.  As his title implies, he's a ball of fluff and as such, requires some grooming to maintain his good looks. His coat attracts everything but girls and money (the jury's still out about the girls!).  He loves walks, but can curl up in his bed next to you when you have work to do. He's crate trained but expect 5-10 minutes of zoomies when he gets out. He's not a big barker except when he's REALLY excited. If a burglar tries to break into your house, he'll bark a few times, then show them where the best stuff is with a wagging tail. 
 
We've affectionately nicknamed him Klepto Clyde, because he considers anything within his reach as his - socks, shoes, hairclips, etc.  He usually takes his prize to his pawsonal space, currently under our dining room table. He still needs work on his housetraining.  He's VERY serious about marking and will want to stake his claim in a new space, but a belly band helps until he settles in.  A decent 15 minute walk after his meal also helps. When leaving the house, he should be watched closely or leashed if he's going out as well. He has darted out on a couple of occasions (and his new family needs to be able to run fast should this happen or he will be long gone!). Clyde is truly a loving, affectionate dog, and will make someone a wonderful companion.  He has his issues, don't we all? but he's so cute and sweet, you'll never hold them against him." Clyde 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 $400.

Snowflake, a Terrier mix
 
Meet Snowflake! Snowflake is a 12 pound, 6-7 year old female Terrier mix. She arrived in rescue after a stay at animal services, where she was very scared. She has settled into foster care nicely and is ready to find a forever family to call her own. Her foster mom says, "Snowflake was a shy quiet little thing when she first came into foster care. It took couple of weeks into fostering for her not to retire to unoccupied rooms to be alone. Slowly she has found her space and is a spunky personality. Always in the middle of the fur team and she has found her voice. If she wants something she will sidle up and wiggle her whole body, stare at her human and start fuss talking. Not barking but talking her story. Snowflake likes soft toy fetch, lives for belly rubs and food time. She has tried to get food from her fur friends so food time is watched and distanced from others. 
 
She is housetrained on a schedule, is good on a leash and is working on basic commands.Snowflake is still leery of strange visitors and will often withdraw to another room. She likes to play with her fur house friends and the cat if it will run will get chased.; if cat sits and stares Snowflake ignores him. Small children are not a good fit for her as she likes to approach humans at her own comfort zone. Cuddling is allowed and she has taking to sleeping right against her humans." Snowflake is an amazing happy little friend, up to date on all vaccinations, spayed, heartworm negative, microchipped and has pearly white clean teeth. She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $300.
 
 

Josie, a Corgi mix
 

Meet Josie! Josie is a 10 year old female Corgi mix and she weighs about 14 pounds. She arrived in foster care when her previous family could no longer care for her. She has settled into foster care nicely, but would love a forever home to call her own. Her foster mom says, "Josie is the sweetest pup I’ve fostered! She loves to cuddle and is definitely a lap dog!  She currently sleeps with me and is the happiest and most energetic in the morning when she first wakes up.  Josie loves a few minutes of “play time” before getting off the bed and starting her day. She likes to be fed right away in the morning and is definitely a foodie (don’t leave a plate of food unattended!) and picky about her dog food.  She loves walks, enjoys being outside and going for car rides.  This sweet girl is the type of dog that likes to be able to see you at all times, and does not like being left alone.  She loves playing with other dogs that she has met her size. I believe if she had another dog for company, it wouldn’t bother her so much to be left alone. Josie loves people! When a neighbor comes over or someone drops by to visit, she will bark and let you know you have a visitor.  If she hears a door bell on a tv show or commercial, she will bark and run to the door. She’s always ready for someone new to play with! 

 
She loves to play “fetch” with a bully stick … until she gets ready to eat it.  Josie is sensitive to sudden noises and storms make her very nervous. She usually settles down for the night around 8:30 - 9:00 and lays on the couch or floor and waits for bedtime.  I take her outside one more time for a quick potty before going to bed.  I have not been able to train her to use a pee pad, so she would need to go outside at least every 3 hours throughout the day. She will pee quickly, but the other may require more walking.  I live in a rural area where there are not a lot of dogs walked regularly, so that may make a difference.  If you have to leave the house, you may need to crate her because when she gets anxious, she will have an “accident” on the floor.  She does not like to be left alone. Otherwise, Josie is the perfect companion and has so much love to share!" Josie 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.
 
 

Jimmy Kibble, a Pomsky
 
READ THIS FIRST:  All applicants for Jimmy Kibble MUST be LOCAL to the Orlando area, NO exceptions. Thank you.

Meet  Jimmy Kibble! Jimmy Kibble is a 6 month old male Pomsky and he weighs about 15 pounds. He should stay under 35 pounds full grown, but we can't promise that. Jimmy arrived in rescue after being purchased by a family who didn't realize how much energy a Pomsky would have (or how much of a voice!) and just saw cute fluff. While he is cute, and fluffy, Jimmy is allllll puppy and will need a family that is ready for that energy! His foster mom says, "Jimmy Kibble is most certainly the handsomest of boys! His good looks are only part of his charm, and he will need a family that can look past the cuteness and fluff and help him continue becoming the bestest boy. Jimmy is all puppy and plays rough - we are working on that, but he would do best in a home without dogs smaller than him or with senior dogs.
 
He has a ton of energy and loves to play. Jimmy also likes to cuddle though and looks at you with his pretty eyes and melts your heart.  He has done well with housetraining on a schedule and will use the piddle pad when necessary. He loves toys and can often be found hanging out IN the toy basket.  Jimmy isn't a big barker, but he can be vocal when he "needs to tell you something", and his bark is more of a husky howl than a pomeranian yip.  Jimmy would do best with a family that is home a lot or another playful pup to keep him occupied as he can get into a little mischief when left by himself.  He loves to play with his foster friends and will chase them all around the back yard.  He is not walking on a leash right now (we are working on it) so he will need a fenced yard, absolutely NO apartments or townhomes with shared walls (and no, a dog park can not count as a yard). Jimmy Kibble is neutered, up to date on vaccines, on flea and heartworm prevention and microchipped. He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $500.
 
 

Tank, a Pomeranian
 

Meet Tank! Tank is an 11-12 year year old male Pomeranian and he weighs about 7 pounds. He arrived in rescue after being found near a
drainage ditch and no one came forward to claim him. He has settled into foster care nicely and is ready to find a forever family to callhis own! His foster mom says, "Looks aren’t everything! Yes, Tank is adorable, but he also is a very nervous dog. He also has a collapsing trachea, right now he is just on cough medicine. He needs a quiet, calm home. He would run from me when I first got him, now he speed walks away from me sometimes. He doesn’t like you being near a door when going in or out. He wants pets and love on his terms, he now barks at me to put him on the couch for pets and play time. He also barks when you are too slow fixing his meals. Leash walking is still a
work in progress. No loud parking lots for this boy. 

 

We are still working on housetraining, if kept on a schedule, he’s does pretty well, but still a bit of a marker.He is getting used to being picked up and held. Not a huge lap dog. He can sleep in his crate with no issues, but he now sleeps on a dog bed. He is afraid of thunder and will find something to hide under. When he gets in his frisky mood, he makes me laugh, sitting on the floor playing with him is the best! He enjoys his naps.  My sweet, quirky Tank is looking for someone that can meet his needs, love and spoil him, could that be you? "

Pupdate: This little boy took awhile, but he now loves playing with me and sitting on my lap. The groomer said he was one of her best clients. He makes me laugh constantly. He has come such a long way. Tank 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 $175.
