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.

Riley, a Bernadoodle/Schnoodle mix
Meet Riley! Riley is a 6 month old female Bernadoodle/Schnoodle mix and she weighs about 10 pounds right now, but she is still growing, and could be anywhere from 25-60 pounds full grown. She arrived in rescue with her littermates when they were surrendered. Riley is all puppy and will need a family that is ready for Doodle exuberance and antics. She will need her forever family to continue to work with her on life skills like house training, leash training and socialization while using positive reinforcement. Her foster mom says, "Riley is very sweet and a bit of a drama queen.  If the playing gets too rough, she will cry and then come running to her person for comfort.  Riley will get in your lap and just melt while she looks up at you with her big brown eyes.  
She can be a bit barky when she is excited in an effort to get your attention but will calm down as soon as you pay attention to her.  She gets along well with all the dogs in her foster home, big and small and is piddle pad trained if she can’t get outside.  UPDATE:  Riley has mostly grown out of her drama queen stage and now her favorite thing to do is mess around in the backyard.  She likes it even more when you are out there with her.  She enjoys “helping” with weeding or digging or planting.  Riley walks nicely on a leash now and she loves to go for walks.  It is so much fun she tries to help put her harness on when it is time to go.  She is still needy wanting lots of attention and is a great snuggler. Riley is spayed, up to date on vaccines, on flea and heartworm prevention and microchipped. She is fostered in the Orlando area and her adoption donation is $500.

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.

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.

Jojo, a Yorkie/Havanese mix

Meet Jojo! Jojo is an 8 year old female Yorkie/Havanese mix and she weighs about 10 pounds. She arrived in rescue when her previous family could no longer care for her. She has settled into foster care but is ready to find her forever family! Her foster mom says, "Are you looking for a middle aged dog that rivals a toddler in tantrums, attention span and neediness?  Then look no further because JoJo is your dog!  Under her cute exterior and soul touching gaze, lies one of the neediest dogs I have ever fostered.  JoJo needs to play fetch multiple times each day and if you don’t, she will talk to you about it, as your job is to keep her entertained.  She needs to be an only dog; not only because she requires all your attention, she also won’t share her toys or her food, or her crate and will not share a bed/crate with any other pet. 
JoJo will need to sleep in bed with you, otherwise you will hear about it all night. She likes to complain quite a bit.  JoJo will want to be petted and cuddled in your lap and then just as quickly get over it and not want to be touched.  She may growl to get your attention, but there is not a mean bone in her body when it comes to humans.  She is an excellent guard dog and likes to announce if anyone gets too close to the house.  She is learning housetraining and is getting better each week with less accidents!" Jojo 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.

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.
