Happy Holidays and Happy New Year from 
Florida Little Dog Rescue!!!

As 2015 comes to a close we wanted to wish all of our friends, family and supporters a happy holiday and wishes for an amazing 2016! 2015 has been quite a “big” year for us at FLDR, quite literally in some cases like Duchess, and we are anticipating being just as busy in 2016. While our intake team would love to be “unemployed” in the new year, we recognize that is not likely, and more pups will need our help to find loving homes like yours!

As you consider your end-of-year giving, please remember that all donations to Florida Little Dog Rescue are tax-deductible as we are a fully certified and registered 501(c)3. As an added bonus, any donations made before midnight, 12/31 will be matched by a very generous supporter, up to $5000!! Just use any of the links here on our website to donate and your contribution will be automatically added towards the matching funds!

You can also check out our Amazon Smile Wishlist, which lets you send much needed products right to our pups and foster parents, plus a percentage of your purchases on Amazon are also donated to FLDR when you choose us as your charity of choice!  http://smile.amazon.com/ch/45-3208425 - link to choose us as your charity of choice https://smile.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/… - link directly to our wish list

Please also know how much our foster parents LOVE receiving updates and pictures of their former foster pups ~ there is nothing quite as encouraging on a “down” day as being able to look at one of your former pups that arrived broken, scared and afraid to love now living the “great life” as a cherished family member!!!
Thank you all so very much for supporting rescue, and especially our volunteers and pups at Florida Little Dog Rescue!!

Much Love,
Duchess, the CDL, Mishka and the rest of their “staff” at Florida Little Dog Rescue!

 Meet Boogie! 

 

Boogie is a 9 year old male Yorkie/Silky mix and he weighs about 18 pounds. He originally arrived in rescue 4 years ago after spending the first five years of his life in a puppy mill, and was adopted to a loving home. Sadly, his mom passed away unexpectedly and now Boogie is hoping to find a new family to love and call his own! His foster mom says, "He is one good dog! Totally housetrained and very well behaved. He gets along well with other dogs and is not food aggressive. He also shares our home with a cat and a parrot. Grace (our dog) accepted him like he has lived here all his life. Boogie is shy with new people but not fearful. He is great on a leash and loves his morning and evening walks, but would love to chase a few squirrels and ducks if given the chance. Boogie is nervous walking on hard surfaces (laminate and vinyl floors), but nothing that a scatter rug or two hasn't solved. He sleeps in a dog bed in our bedroom at night and has free range of the house when we leave. He does have a slight limp on his left hind and ears that need regular attention/cleaning. We were told when he was brought in that he is also nervous around young children. He has been poked and prodded by Dr. Matt and groomed and he never showed any signs of aggression. We could not have picked a better dog to foster. Again, one good dog!" Boogie is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $200.

 

Meka was just adopted by a wonderful family who found it in their hearts to open their home to such an awesome rescue pup! Congratulations Meka!

How many dogs have YOU helped us save?

 PUPPY BOWL XII!! 
Some people wait with baited breath for Academy Award Nominations, Grammy Nominations or even Tony Nominations....at Florida Little Dog Rescue, we anxiously await........the release of the Puppy Bowl Starting Line-Up, and TODAY is the DAY!!!! That's right, the roster of puppies on the starting line-up has been officially released, and has EIGHT from FLDR!! Six of these pups also made it into the fantasy draft line-up, and we could not be more excited!!! Please join us in co...ngratulating Boris, Bijoux, Stella, Rixton, Andy Cohen (also known as Natasha to our FLDR peeps), Gryffn, Wrinkles and Countess!! Rixton, who had just been cleared from the Injured Reserve list due to a broken leg, and Countess (aka Tessa), our English Bulldog with spina bifida, were able to show the other pups that being special needs doesn't slow them down a bit, and they are ready to "bring it" for game day:) We had four other pups that made the back-up roster - Lilo, Stitch, Meka and Sheeran, and we know that come game day we will see them play hard as well:) You can check out Animal Planet's website to see profiles of all the pups, and catch Wrinkles in practice sessions on the new Virtual Reality feature section. We will have more news and information coming over the next few days, but mark your calendars now for our 3rd Annual Puppy Bowl Tail-Gate at The Veranda in Thornton Park, Sunday, February 7th starting at 2pm, with kick-off at 3!  Be sure to check out our Puppy Bowl Page here:

And now we rejoin our regularly scheduled programming of basking in puppy cuteness!!

 Duchess's Story, "It's About Time" 
December 11: Six months ago this morning, I took this picture. After a sleepless night, and an almost 2 hour drive at the crack of dawn, this was how my day began....."Even if her story just ended with a blissful car ride, a bath and massage, and a fresh grilled steak, and some loving cuddles, her ending was going to be better - she deserved better." Our Duchess. Our beautiful, special Duchess, tossed away, left on a porch like trash to be collected. Six months ago, I honestly believed we would be lucky to give her 6 great hours. Partway down the rode, we put the window down. She "rode along catching the fresh air like it was her own little piece of heaven - and that is when I just cried. I pulled over, called my mom to thank her for raising me to love animals". Six hours. I was praying to give her 6 great hours. Well, Duchess got 6 great hours, and we got hopeful. 6 great days. Let's see if we can give her 6 great days, and have her knock items of an "It's About Time" list...her IAT list. And that she did. A puppachino, a trip to the pet store, a cake from Pookie's all of her own, a spa day, and so many other adventures, but then a road bump. Severe pancreatitis. 6 days in and wham. Here eyes just pled with us...she wasn't ready. She didn't just want 6 days of the "good life", she wanted more. She NEEDED more. She DESERVED more, and along with us, you all fought for us to give her more. And as our Duchess wanted, our Duchess received. 6 days became 6 weeks...and more. We never plan too much for her in advance, every day is a blessing, and we know, especially with a 14 year old great dane, the next one is not guaranteed, but today we celebrate. Today, 6 hours, that became 6 days, that became 6 weeks, has become 6 months. 6 months. I repeat that because, seriously, we felt like we were going to be lucky with 6 hours. We didn't dare dream, or hope, for 6 months. All of us would have laughed at the notion, but we didn't truly know Duchess yet. Her spirit, her sense of humor (because oh she has one!), her sass that overflows, her zest for life ~ Duchess embodies everything we do in rescue at FLDR in one "little" package. Duchess has taught each of us so much, and she is our heart. Six months. Since we let Duchess guide us on what she is up for, and able to handle, we don't plan stuff for her too far in advance - it almost seems like tempting fate, you know? MamaJan says Duchess is ready, and expecting, a truly Royal Celebration to celebrate her "6 month gotchaversiary" (she swears this is a thing, and none of us want to argue with her, because truly, we fear the wrath of the CDL, so we just roll with it). She wanted a 6 hour celebration, but we thought that was too much, so we settled on 3 hours, from 12-3. Our friends at WoofGang Thornton Park, Orlando have agreed to graciously host her Royal Gathering, tomorrow, Saturday December 12, as they have a nice wrap around porch for her and the pups to chill out and meet everyone, and for pictures as well. Rumor has it Duchess has some special things planned, and Donna from Le Puparazzi will be on hand to capture some of the special moments. Duchess is hoping to get a jump start on the holiday celebrations, she is already enjoying Hanukkah, and is anxiously awaiting her first real Christmas. She has helped update our wish list on Amazon, and would love it if you could help us stuff all the pups stockings full for Christmas:) Beds, toys, collars, harnesses are always big hits, as well as donations towards Duchess's care - she still is on a special home cooked diet to help her keep her system stable.  Also, she would really like for you to like and share her post - because grey is the new black, and seniors are super special, and you are NEVER too old to be loved. EVER!

Welcome to Florida Little Dog Rescue Group!

Florida Little Dog Rescue rehabilitates unwanted, abused and abandoned little dogs and places them in loving and responsible homes to live out their lives as cherished family members.  We would love for you to join us by adopting a dog, volunteering as a foster home or donating money to help save the dogs.  We are a 501(c)3 Charitable Organization, and all donations to FLDRG are tax deductible!

 In Loving Memory 

James Holland recently passed away and his family dog Raven was his baby. They adopted her three years ago and his family has asked for donations to FLDR in his memory! You were much loved James, and will be very missed by all who had the blessing to know you.

In Loving Memory of Debbie Gano, who recently passed away. She loved her Grand-dog, Georgia, an FLDR alumnus so very much.  Her family has asked that in lieu of flowers, her friends and family help save lives by donating to FLDR.

Save a Dog on Death Row!
Many need YOUR help right now!!

Please help us save dogs on Death Row at local Animal Controls. These are dogs that can't be adopted out directly from Animal Control, mainly for medical reasons. When they can't be adopted, they need a rescue to save them when their time runs out.  These pups desperately need our help, we are their last hope!

 Florida Little Dog Rescue Group rescues dogs from all over the state of Florida, but our main focus is the Central Florida area.  Our volunteers live anywhere from Tallahassee to Tampa, but almost all of our dogs are fostered in the Orlando area.  We are 100% volunteer-based, which means no overhead or salary costs.  Your donation is used directly for dog care. We do not receive government funds. We are entirely supported by charitable donations.

We ensure that each dog is spayed/neutered, vaccinated, tested for heartworms and other parasites, examined by a vet and treated for any known conditions prior to adoption.  All known medical information is fully disclosed to new families.  While awaiting adoption, the dogs live in foster homes that provide love, patience and TLC to the pups! A pup's stay in foster care could vary from several days to several weeks, depending upon the dog's conditions and needs.  Unlike shelter or kennel living, fostering the pups in a home environment allows us to personally evaluate each dog for behavior and temperament issues.  We are able to see how they interact and react to other animals and children, if they are house trained, like to go for walks, play ball, etc. and that makes it easier to know what type of home/family would be best suited for them!

Please note, we are not a shelter. We do not have a kennel or facility that you can visit and see all the dogs. Each dog is fostered in an individual home. We do rescue out of our private homes and in our spare time. So, you cannot come visit our dogs until you have gone through the application and interview process and we have contacted you about scheduling a visit.  We do not have set "hours" and we answer all calls and emails as quickly as we can!
