Toti, a Yorkie mix
 
Meet Toti! Toti is a 7 year old, 10 pound female Yorkie mix. She arrived in rescue when her previous mom became very sick and was unable to care for her anymore. She has settled into foster care nicely and is looking for a forever family to call her own. Her foster mom says, " If you are looking for the epitome of a sweet lap dog, meet Toti! She is as sweet as the day is long, She is housetrained and crate trained and loves to go for walks. She could use some help working on her manners as she does like to bark at passers by. She is silly, curious and a super cuddler with plenty of kisses to go around. She gets along fine with her foster sisters, but she does like to have her human's lap all to herself and will snark at the other dogs if they try and come up and share.
 
She does only have a couple of teeth, so this is really more of a show, but still something to work on. She can be vocal (so no shared walls please!), but does respond quickly when corrected." Toti 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 $300. 
 
 

Charlie and Missy, a Bonded Pair
 
Meet Charlie and Missy!  They are a very bonded duo, and are looking for a forever home together, as they can not (and will not) be separated! Charlie is a 9 year old male Pug and he weighs about 19 pounds. Missy is a 9 year old female Chihuahua mix and she weighs about 9 pounds. They arrived in rescue when their previous family could no longer care for them. They have settled into their foster home and are doing well, but would love a forever family of their own. Their foster mom says, "We were told that these two have been together for nine years and were doted on by their human.  These two are two peas in a pod – they eat together, sleep together, go wandering through the yard together – they pretty much do everything together and they don’t like to be apart. Foster Dad says they always make him feel great when he comes home as they run up to greet him with wagging tails and smiling faces. You feel the love as they jockey for position to get the next petting, looking up with those loving eyes. Missy has a perpetual smile on that pretty face.  When they came in to our family they had just been to the vet and had a dental that same day.  Charlie lost quite a few teeth and will remain on soft foods.  That doesn’t seem to be much different than the diet he had been on as it seems like both of them may have been hand or spoon-fed people food.  Missy can be a tad pickier, the first few days of soft dog food she wouldn’t eat unless fed by spoon. She can turn her nose up and let you know very quickly what she thinks about something.  They have now adjusted to the soft dog food with some baked chicken added every few days as a reward for how great they are doing.  Both had a bit of weight to lose, have done a tremendous job losing that weight in a short period of time and have become more active. 
 
I feed them smaller portions several times a day and provide broken up soft treats as reward for their great behavior.  Both Charlie and Missy get along well with the other pups in the house, but prefer to be by themselves.  When given the chance they curl up with each other away from the others.  The place they would rather be is snuggled up next to their human. They look to their human and you just know they want to be next to you. They willingly go into carriers and crates.  Neither pup is fully housetrained and they do not really understand a puppy pad, but are good at alerting when they need to go out.  They would do well with someone at home to let them out, as needed and with some time I they should do much better.  They were great in the yard, aware of the pool, and friendly to everyone they’ve met.  They do really well on a leash.  They were comfortable in a carrier, but preferred to be together in one. They share their food and treats back and forth without issue, but another pup may not get the same treatment where food is concerned.  Both love to be petted, brushed, loved on in any way and in return they will adore you.  They live to be by your side. I would bet they would be up on the bed with you, if given the chance – they want to be where their human is. They were not around cats or children to know how they would react, but small children would likely not be a good fit.  They are fully aware of noises and movement in the yard and can loudly proclaim their concern.  At times, a shared fence line with a neighboring puppy would become quite the ruckus.  Are you the right human for these two?  They are easy to take care of, full of love, and provide endless entertainment." Charlie and Missy are spayed and neutered, 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 $500.
 
 

Andy, a Chihuahua mix
 
Meet Andy! Andy is a 5-6 year old male Chihuahua mix and he weighs about 9 pounds. He arrived in rescue after trying out home life with another dog, and it was just not working out. Andy is protective of his human and his home and will need a very specific home to be successful! His foster mom says, "Andy is the little man you have been waiting for!  He is housetrained, comes when called and would love to be your sole companion.  He will be a bit shy at first, but after a few days, he will rule the house, keeping the patio clear of lizards and watching the robot vacuum to make sure it doesn’t do anything it shouldn’t.  Andy likes to know where you are and will follow you around the house and sleep in your bed at night.  He's not a big barker and walks well on a leash.  
 
I crate him when I leave the house and while he doesn’t like being away from me, he settles down after a few minutes of whining.  He keeps himself entertained during the day while I work from home, he plays with his toys and then will check on me periodically for a couple of pets and some kisses. Andy is a one owner kind of guy and expects the same from you, if you show any attention to someone else, he gets a bit jealous. He will need a household with no other pets or children and without a lot of visitors."  Andy 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.
 
 

Rocket, a Pomeranian/Husky mix
 
Meet Rocket! Rocket is a 3 1/2 year old male Pomsky and he weighs about 30 pounds. Being part Pomeranian and part Husky, Rocket has a lot of personality and will need a home willing to understand that and work with him so that he is the best pupper he can possibly be, with all that energy! Andddd.......here's Rocket! "My foster mom says I have more energy than her today, so I’m going to write my own bio! Hi! I’m Rocket! My favorite celebrity is Dug from the movie Up! I live by his quote, “I have just met you and I love you.” I LOVE giving kisses to everyone! My foster mom has worked with me on not jumping on people, but she says it’s not going well. What can I say? I want every human to be my friend! I love people, but I'm not always gentle around younger kiddos, so I would probably do best in an adults only home. I do like to play, but I’m not the best around other dogs or little animals. I like to play with my foster dog brother, but I don’t like him near me when I’m eating. 
 
I have also tried to protect my foster family from their evil hedgehog and guinea pigs, but my attempts to attack the enemies have been met with time outs. So, no small pets (or cats!) for me long term. I love to play with cloth squeaky toys. I play fetch a little but tug of war is my favorite. Even though I have energy, I’m not constantly going. I also enjoy relaxing sitting next to you on the couch or recliner. I never want you to leave me, so I have some anxiety when I’m left alone. Shared walls (like an apartment or condo) might get us both in trouble, so I need a single family, detached home please! I need someone who is home most of the day. I must be crated while you are out or I get into mischief. I am housetrained on a schedule (about every 3 or 4 hours) and walk well on a leash. I will try to bark at people/dogs or chase squirrels and cats but if you stop me before I get worked up, I am easily corrected. Ideally, I would prefer a fenced yard of my own. A fun fact about me - I like car rides. Well, like may be an understatement, LOVE is probably more accurate!  If you ever forget something in your car, don’t open the door with me around or I will jump in and get very angry if we don’t go somewhere. When my day is done, my favorite place to sleep is in bed with my humans!  Rocket 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 $300.
 
 

Gizmo, a Shih Tzu
 
Meet Gizmo! Gizmo is a 2 year old Shih Tzu mix and he weighs about 16 pounds. He arrived in rescue after having some issues with children and the groomer. He is working on overcoming some of those, but is ready to work on those with a family to call his own. His foster parents say: Gizmo is a sweet pup that is looking for his “furever” home. This energetic pup is looking for someone to snuggle with. He would love a fenced in yard to run around like a playful, young puppy. He loves his time outside with you. He’s fascinated by squirrels and birds. Inside, Gizmo loves lounging on sofas, playing with his toys, alerting you when there’s an Amazon package delivery, and “begging” or “praying” for treats. He takes treats off your hand very nicely. He is housetrained. He’s affectionate but would be better in homes with adults only. Since he’s still young, he play nibbles, so we wouldn’t suggest a home with children who are frequent visitors either. He should outgrow this habit with continual training with replacement toys he can chew on.  
 
Gizmo wouldn’t do well in an apartment because he yelps with excitement. He can be with other dogs or just himself, however, he would prefer to be with his human, if given the chance. Gizmo's previous family indicated he went to the groomer and came home with bruises on his neck, and although both their vet and our vet have found no medical issues, Gizmo is very hesitant when you reach for him too quick, or try and grab at his collar, so you will need to be slow and patient with him. His puppy dog eyes will quickly fill you with joy!"" Gizmo is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and microchipped. He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $300.
 
 

Molly Mae, a Yorkie
 
Meet Molly Mae!  Molly Mae is a 14 year old female Yorkie and she weighs about 9 pounds. She arrived in rescue after finding herself at animal services and just not doing well. This sweet senior has settled into her foster home and is ready for a forever family of her own to love out her many golden years with! Her foster mom says:, "Who is ready to give this sweetheart her best life? Ever hear of a shadow dog... well, Miss Molly Mae is a magnet dog! You turn around to look for her and you miss her because she took that turn with you and is behind you! She often gets underfoot, so please be aware of that. She loves her human! She needs someone who is home the majority of the day. I find it hard to believe she is a senior, don’t let her age fool you, she leaps off couches like nobody’s business and her hearing is amazing- you make a move and she picks up her head and looks at me like, where are you going, I’ll go too! She does need her eyes wiped a few times a day, but she’s so close to you, easy peasy. She doesn’t have any teeth, but loves her wet food.  She is still working on housetraining and using a potty pad. 
 
I think with a strict outdoor schedule, she will hopefully get it in time. As far as being outside, she will potty on a harness/leash, but is very nervous, I’m not sure if it’s the harness/leash or the outdoors, so a quiet neighborhood would be best if there is no fenced yard. Due to her size and ninja like movements, no young children for her. She is not a big barker, but is a big squeaker and whiner if you leave the room and she can’t get to you. Although she gets along with other dogs, I feel (and so does she) that she deserves ALL the attention, so most likely she should be an only dog. She is very smart, she knows when I’m sitting at my desk, it’s time to go take a nap on her bed, but if I’m on the couch- all bets are off and she has to be on you and give you lots of kisses with her little tongue hanging out. She is one big lover! She deserves all the love and attention she wants, can you be the one?" Molly Mae is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and microchipped! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $225.
