Tucker, a Lab/Hound mix
Meet Tucker! Tucker is a three month old Lab/Hound/whole lot of adorableness puppy, and he weighs about 8 pounds.  He should stay under 70 pounds full grown, but we can't promise that! Tucker and his littermates were found wandering in the woods in a  rural part of Florida. People in the area had seen mama coming and going, but then stopped seeing her and noticed two puppies were also missing, so they brought the four remaining pups into their barn. After several days, still no mom, so they reached out to rescue for help. Tucker has spent the last month in a loving foster home and is ready to find a forever family of his own. He will need a family that is up for all things puppy - including housetraining, leash training and continuing his socialization skills. 
His foster mom says, "Tucker is tiny but mighty!  He was the runt and is so lovable! He loves to explore and is quite brave despite his tiny size. He loves other dogs and has been great with kids in my neighborhood who are very gentle. Tucker is doing very well on his outside potty breaks but he is just a wee baby still so will need additional and consistent training, with patience and positive reinforcement." Tucker 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 $325.

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!'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 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.

Chloe, a Poodle mix
Meet Chloe!  Chloe is a 10 year old female Poodle mix and she weighs about 14 pounds. She arrived in rescue when her previous family could no longer care for her. She has settled into foster care well and is looking for a forever family of her own. Her foster mom says, "Miss Chloe should be named Sugar Pie as she is so very sweet ! A little shy at first but after a day or two blossoms into the most the most loving little doggie. She has a fun and engaging personality, but the quiet and calm demeanor of a more mature lady. She doesn't show much interest in toys, balls or teddy bears. She just wants to hang with her people and LOVES tummy rubs! She is not a barker at all, a very quiet little dog. Chloe walks well on a leash and shows bright interest in things around her. She is housetrained on a schedule and goes very obligingly whenever she is taken outside.  
Chloe sleeps all night long in a little dog bed in the corner of the bedroom. She loves her bed and just likes to know that her people are close by. Taking a bath is not her favorite thing, but she cooperates calmly, dries fast, and forgives quickly with lots of cuddles and kisses. She can be left home alone for short periods of time and gives the MOST enthusiastic and happy welcome home! Chloe loves her food. She eats soft pate dog food mixed with warm water or soft food in tiny pieces as she has no teeth. Chloe also does have some allergies, but she takes an inexpensive pill for it daily and has been doing great! This little girl is a very sweet and happy little soul, with a lot of love to give. Chloe will make a wonderful companion for whoever is lucky enough to be able to give her a forever home."   She is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and microchipped.  Chloe is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $250.

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.

Red, a Chihuahua
Hi! I’m Red! I wanted to introduce myself to y’all. I am 14yrs old, and I weigh just about 5 pounds. I came into rescue when my previous family could no longer care for me. I need to tell you a "secret"...well, its not really a secret, but I have no teeth (I will provide you with lots of great opportunities to take photos for Tongue out Tuesday!). I am skinny although my foster mom feeds me 3-4x a day I have not gained much weight (don’t be jealous!). I could probably stand to gain at least another pound or two. I’m super picky when it comes to my food. Some days I prefer wet food and some days I like dry food as long as it’s tiny pieces, but let me honest....most days I would prefer you boil me some chicken and rice.  When you are in the kitchen cooking yourself something I will be right there watching your every move and making sure you know I am there by giving a few high pitched screeches.  I am a super sweet boy. I love to get back scratches and belly rubs!  I like to be held and cuddled as well.  Need to get stuff done around the house but I won’t let you put me down? 
No problem, just put on a sling, put me in it so you can be hands free and I can still be by your side. I will sit in there as long as you let me be with you.  If I’m not next to you, you will often find me sleeping under the nearest blanket. At night I sleep in my pet bed underneath my blanket in my foster mom's bedroom.  My foster mom says I’m a really good listener when being corrected about my not so good behavior. Yes, sigh, I have a few flaws.... I umm like to mark things sometimes. I want all the doggies in the house to know that I’m here. Speaking of other dogs....I like them however I will not share my food with them and need to be fed separately.  I will sometimes growl if they enter my personal space. If I had a choice I would prefer to be the one and only pup in the home  (my foster mom will actually INSIST I am the ONLY dog in my forever home). I would love a home where my humans are home and have lots of love and time for me.  We can explore the yard together or go for short leash walks.  If you think we are a perfect match please fill out the application so we can start our journey together! Red is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and microchipped. He is fostered in the Orlando area and his adoption donation is $150.

First, yes, we know this is Florida Little Dog Rescue, but our Director has had hedgies for 25+ years and is very versed in their care, so we occasionally have hedgehogs available for adoption as well. Please know that all of our hedgehogs will only be placed in hedgehog knowledgeable homes.

Marshmallow, a Hedgehog
Meet Marshmallow! Marshmallow is an approximately 2 year old female Hedgie, who arrived in rescue after living in a home that could not properly care for her anymore. She did arrive with some quill loss due to mites, but they have been treated and her quills are almost all grown back in. Marshmallow is a sweet girl who just needs time to warm up to you. She is a little bit of an explorer and likes to explore her new surroundings. She likes to run on her wheel and is semi-diurnal but still a bit of a nighttime girl. She would benefit from a patient owner willing to take the time to bond with her and help with her continued socialization. 
Marshmallow has a ton of personality and is a quirky, sweet little girl who will just need your patience with her while bonding.  Her favorite treat is her freeze dried mealworms and you can easily coax her out with those.  Marshmallow is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $100. She will come with her cage, wheel and all of her supplies. If you are interested in applying to adopt, please go to and complete an application (yes, you can complete the one for the dogs, just put in the comments that you are applying for her, and her foster will reach out!). Please know we do not ship, or adopt out of state.

Peaches and Blossom, a Mother and Daughter Hedgehog Pair
Meet Peaches and Blossom, a mother and daughter Hedgehog pair! While most hedgehogs don't want to share "their hedge" these two are quite content sharing a habitat.  A surprise hoglet, Peaches was born to Blossom just a few days after she arrived at her new home. Due to a family emergency, they were no longer able to care for them and the pair arrived in rescue.  Peaches is about six months old and Blossom is about a year old. They are funny, sweet girls that take a few days to warm up, but when they do, they are full of personality and charm. They both love their wheels (their are two in their cage), and sleeping in their hidey-house. They are semi-diurnal but still nighttime girls. They would benefit from a patient owner willing to take the time to bond with them and help with their continued socialization. Their favorite treat is freeze dried mealworms and you can easily coax them out with those.
Peaches and Blossom are fostered in the Orlando area, and their adoption donation is $200. They will come with their cage, wheel and all of their supplies. If you are interested in applying to adopt, please go to and complete an application (yes, you can complete the one for the dogs, just put in the comments that you are applying for her, and her foster will reach out!). Please know we do not ship, or adopt out of state.
