Cassanova, a Chihuahua mix
 
Meet Casanova! Casanova is a 10 week old, male Chihuahua mix puppy and he weighs about 4 pounds. He should stay under 15 pounds full grown, but we can't promise that. Casanova has been in foster care since he was 3 weeks old after being rescued from a hoarding situation. He has been raised since in a loving foster home, working on socialization and life skills, but he will need a family that is up for all things puppy.  His foster mom says, "Casanova is soo sweet and loves to be loved on! He enjoys playing with his toys and your fingers. He was the runt of the litter but has caught up to his litter mates in size. His tail is always wagging and he is always down for some belly rubs. Casanova will need a home with no small children as he is pretty tiny himself and his little sharp teeth hurt when playing with you.
 
Older children would be a perfect match for him. Another young fur friend to play with would be great but would do ok alone (as long as his humans are home a lot). No senior pups as he would drive them crazy with all his puppy antics. He will need a family who is home more often than not while learning all things puppy related (house training, leash walking, crate training, and learning shoes are meant for human feet not toys!). Are you up for the puppy challenge?" Casanova is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and on flea and heartworm prevention. He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $325.

Ivy, a Chihuahua mix
 
Meet Ivy! Ivy is an approximately 4- 5 year old female Chihuahua mix and she weighs about 10 pounds. She arrived in rescue as part of a hoarding case, has settled into foster care and now she is now living her best life! Her foster mom says, "Ivy is very energetic and would really love to join a family with another dog as she loves the company of other dogs. While we have had her she has not met a cat so we don’t know how that would go.
She loves her humans and wants to know where they are at all times. She would probably do best in a home where humans are around most of the day as she does have some separation anxiety. Ivy is learning to walk on a leash and loves to be outside with you. 
 
She is housetrained on a schedule, as we try to take her out about every two hours and has caught on well to that routine. She also will use a puppy pad if that is her only choice at the time. A securely fenced yard would be wonderful as she is pretty small and loves to explore. Ivy can be quite vocal at times, especially when you return home and she is so excited to see you so shared walls may not work out well. She is a sweet and loving dog and deserves a great forever home! Experience with Chihuahuas would be a plus as she can be quirky, like only wanting to sleep under the covers." Ivy 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.
 
 

Peanut, a Maltese mix
 
Meet Peanut! Peanut is a darling, 14 year old, 6 pound male Maltese mix with two teeth who is looking for his special person. He arrived in foster care when his previous family could no longer care for him and has settled into foster care nicely. His foster mom says, "Peanut loves people and other dogs. We are working on his housetraining. He is trained to potty on potty pads but leaves a trail when he poops. When I leave the house, I leave a potty pad in a tiled bathroom with his blanket and water bowl. Peanut enjoys soft canned food and has a good appetite. 
 
He's good on a leash and will let you know if he needs to go on a walk. He loves to play catch me if you can and be in the middle of the action. He likes to be held and carried. At night, he sleeps on a blanket or bed on the floor next to the bed and is a great sleeper. Peanut loves car rides. He loves cuddles, hugs, kisses, and praises. He is a precious little dog that is entertaining and a wonderful companion!" Peanut is neutered, up to date on vaccines, negative for heartworm, microchipped, and has had his two teeth cleaned. He is fostered in the Orlando area and his adoption donation is $225.
 
 

Henry, a Keeshond mix
 
Meet Henry! Henry is a 7 year old male Keeshond mix and he weighs about 14 pounds. He arrived in rescue when his previous family could no longer care for him. His previous home did have a cat, although his foster mom does not, he did get along peacefully with the kitty. Henry's foster mom says he would like to introduce himself: Hello, I’m Henry and I love my humans.! I have never met a stranger and want all of the pets, however I am not fond of most other dogs. They are stranger danger as I protect my person.  My foster mom would say I am the most amazing little guy mainly because I allow her to sleep in on the weekends. His foster mom states, "Henry loves to relax, not that he is lazy, because he really enjoys his walks.  In the house he prefers to sit by my feet (while working on the computer) or on the other side of the couch when I am lounging on the couch.  He will follow me into the kitchen but doesn’t get under foot as he picks a corner to watch me from, hoping I give him some good treats.  Henry is housetrained if I take him out for 2 long walks a day and one short one, Henry will let you know when he must go, if you forget. Henry walks on a leash like a champ, just hold on tight if a bird or squirrel passes by as he will give chase. Henry so far has only barked when someone passes too close to the house or when the doorbell rings or on our walks when he sees another dog. 
 
At this point I can’t say he doesn’t like all dogs, but at least he hasn’t liked the ones we have encountered so far. Henry likes to sleep in my bed overnight, and once I start stirring in the morning he likes to come over and put his paw on my face, which is his way of asking for some pets and morning snuggles.  Speaking of snuggles, Henry is not a lapdog, he only wants to be on your lap if you are actively giving him pets or massages, once you stop, he will either grab your hand for more pets or walk away. Pupdate:  After about a month, Henry has decided I’m okay and now let’s me cuddle with him (although not very long.) Henry loves car rides and would love to go everywhere with me.  He also wants to play with my neighbors cats, but unfortunately for Henry, they don’t like dogs and scorn him.  He has begun to tolerate some of the neighbors dogs, but most he still is very wary of.  When I was sick, he allowed me to hold him all night.  Henry is super smart and knows a variety of commands.  He is also learning more but right now he knows, sit, stay, lay down, roll over and shake your paw.  Henry is extremely food motivated and I found using good treats, I am able to train him quite easily. Henry 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.
 
 

Duke, a Chihuahua
 
Meet Duke! Duke is a handsome, feisty 5 year old, 8 pound male Chihuahua looking for his special person! He arrived in rescue when his previous family was moving and could no longer care for him. Duke has settled into foster care, but is ready to find his forever family! His foster mom says, "Duke is timid and unsure when first meeting new people, but after he feels safe and trusts you, he will seek out your lap to cuddle on and follow you around your house. He thrives on love and attention and is ready to be a loyal, affectionate companion for his chosen person. Duke would do great as an only dog, but with slow introductions he does well with calm dogs in the home who respect his space. He is interested in watching the cats in his foster home, but does not chase them. 
 
He is housetrained and will go to the door to be let outside. He is crate trained but prefers to sleep in a big bed with his human burrowed under the blanket. He plays gentle tug and fetch with soft toys. Duke responds well to treats with his training to correct growling at strangers. He is a compact watchdog who will bark to alert of possible “dangers” coming to the door. Duke should be in a home with only older children and would prefer a quieter household." Duke 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.
 
 

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 call his own! His foster mom say, "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 barks at me to put him on the couch for pets and play time. Tank 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 sleeps on a dog bed for now. 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/" 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.
 
 

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.
