Pixie, a Chihuahua mix
Meet Pixie! Pixie is an 11 year old female Chihuahua mix and she weighs about 12 pounds.  She arrived in rescue with her newborn puppy, from a hoarding situation. Pixie has weaned her puppy, who has already been adopted, and she is now ready to start to find a loving forever home of her own.  Pixie does have some arthritis in her legs and walks a little "odd" from time to time, but she doesn't let that bother her, just something her humans should be aware of! Her foster mom says that she would like to introduce herself, so, here's Pixie!  Hi there! My name is Pixie and I am an older girl.  I came from a hoarding home and I will need a very understanding home that will go slowly with me and understand I may never be comfortable enough to be picked up and snuggled tight.  My foster mom says I am a very sweet girl who has had a rough life.  I tend to go around and collect treats to bring back to my nest and sometimes my foster mom has to clean it out and redistribute to the others. I am protective of my nest/food and will bark if other dogs come near it.  I do not have a mean bone in my body and have never growled or even showed my teeth to my foster mom, even though there were times I was very scared. 
If there is a blanket I will hide underneath it because that makes me feel safe.  I have started to become more comfortable being out and about with my other foster siblings.  I do not run everytime my foster mom stands up or walks around, but will still run away if you walk directly up to me. I watch the others to see if things are ok and will come up to take treats from her hand, so a calm, gentle fur sibling would be great for me. I have just recently felt safe enough to follow my mom and fellow fursiblings outside.  I cannot be walked on a leash and will need a fenced in backyard.  Until then I will need someone willing to work with me by using puppy pads.  I have been successful but still have a few accidents.  I have had many, many litters and walk a little funny because of it and my nipples hang so I may not be the ‘picture perfect’ little girl, but my foster mom says I am beautiful just as I am.  I am looking for an understanding family with no children, calm fur siblings  and a quiet home with little traffic to show me the love and care that I deserve.  Please consider opening your hearts and home to me, I really am a sweet girl. Pixie 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 $225.

Steffie, a Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix
Meet Steffie! Steffie is a 1 year old female Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix and she weighs about 15 pounds. She arrived in rescue after being found as a very pregnant stray and winding up at animal control. No one came to claim her and at the end of her stray hold, she surprised everyone with puppies! She and her pups went straight to a loving foster home, and her puppies are now all adopted out into forever families of their own and Steffie is ready to find a family to call hers! Her foster mom said she would love to introduce herself to you: Hi there my name is Steffie and I am looking for my forever family.  I am a young girl who is very sweet, loving and loyal.  It may take me a little bit to warm up to my new family but once I do I will be forever yours.  I am not a dominant girl and will defer to a dominant male or female  but I do need a human pack leader who will reinforce boundaries.  I am a very smart girl and learn fast.  I have not had any accidents in the house.  I would even hold it when I was in the room with my puppies because I prefer to go to the bathroom outside.  I have a LOT of energy so I will need an active family with a fenced in backyard where I can run around (not negotiable).  
I would like to have other fursiblings but they either need to be older and not care that I am there or smaller so I do not feel threatened by them.  I can also be an only child as long as you play with me and let me run off my energy.   I LOVE walks and love to go running so I you need an exercise partner that would be me!  I can be a little pushy in my play and need playmates that can handle that and humans that can redirect when I want to climb in your lap and give you tons of kisses and ear nibbles.  I need a home with no small children because even though I like to be petted,  I can start playing rough and mouthing so older children only and none of those furry balls with claws you call cats as I do not like them at all. Since I am loyal to my family, I naturally wish to protect them and my home from strangers and will need many slow introductions before I know to trust them.  My family will need to understand this and be willing to work with me.  I love to snuggle and would love to sleep with you at night and sit next to you on the couch while you watch TV.  If you are looking for a loyal and loving best friend I will be it! Steffie 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.

Chantelle, a Chihuahua mix
Meet Chantelle! Chantelle is a 1 year old female Chihuahua mix and she weighs about 10 pounds. She arrived in rescue when her family just couldn't care for her anymore. She has settled into foster care wel.  Her foster mom says, "Chantelle is a very sweet girl, but can be slightly timid at first. She took to her foster family very quickly and has shown to also take to new people after sneaking in a few sniffs. She is an incredibly curious pup and spends a lot of time observing what’s going on up on her hind legs, it’s a very endearing trait of hers! She has a ton of energy and loves to play with toys, dogs, and humans. She also loves to snuggle up on the couch and nap when the humans are relaxing. Chantelle has come to follow me around the house as my shadow, however, she does experience some separation anxiety when I leave the house and she is crated. She has shown to calm down shortly after I leave, though (no shared walls please!). Chantelle would do best in a home with other friendly dogs that enjoy playing as much as she does. She is very close to being completely housetrained, but will go in the house if not taken out frequently. She has adjusted well to going on walks and having access to a fenced yard, so I think she would do well with either.
She loves walks, but can pull very hard, especially when we first get out the door. I have also found she can be quite fast! Her new family will need to be very aware that she is small, so she can and will try to slip out the door if you’re not careful. She listens and is very eager to please. Chantelle comes when called now that she trusts me, and I think given more training (and bribery with treats) she will pick up on new tricks fast. She can also be very vocal, especially when someone is delivering a package to the front porch, but she’s just trying her best to be a good guard dog!"  Chantelle is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and microchipped. She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $300.

Dixie, a Cocker/Dachshund/Terrier mix
Meet Dixie! Dixie is a 5-6 year old female Cocker/Dachshund/Terrier/something adorable mix and she weighs about 20 pounds. She arrived in rescue from a hoarding situation and has been settling into foster care and learning how to "dog". Please know Dixie is NOT HYPOALLERGENIC, she does shed. She will also need a home with another dog and a fenced yard - these are not negotiable. Her foster mom says, "Dixie is adjusting to being in a loving attention filled home.  She is still startled by new people and new things sometimes.  She is really pretty quiet and she doesn't bark much. Dixie is not a big lap dog, she may jump up on the couch with us for some rubs but doesn't stay long.  
However, everytime you walk by her she rolls over for some belly rubs. She tends to lay and sleep off on her own.  Dixie doesn't really play with toys right now.  She's very sweet, gentle and always has a happy wagging tail.  Dixie loves her some treats but be careful she's a bit anxious and still learning how to take them easily.  She gets along well with other dogs.  We are working on her housetraining, but it will continue to take patience and consistency, and a home prepared for some accidents in the beginning.  Due to her background she will need someone patient, kind and very loving to show her that good people are out there." Dixie 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 $250.
