Fancy, a Long Haired Chihuahua mix
 
Meet Fancy! Fancy is a 3 year old female, Long Haired Chihuahua and she weighs about 11 pounds. Fancy arrived in rescue when her previous family could no longer care for her. She has settled into foster care nicely, but is ready to find a forever family to call her own! Her foster mom says, "Fancy is a dainty, happy girl. She loves long walks on a leash, but she gets a little over excited on occasion when she sees her leash and will pee a little on the floor - but it doesn't happen every time and she knows to go on a pee pad by the door. 
 
She knows how to sit and stay, can jump impressively high, walk on her hind legs, and she can twirl! She never barks and only whimpers briefly when confined at night. She sleeps all night and has never made a mess in the house. She loves sleeping on a comfy lap or just curling up close to you. She is always eager for a pet and to receive back scratches but is overall very mellow and relaxed. She will play on occasion but mostly just enjoys attention. Someone gone a full workday probably isn’t the best for her. She is indifferent to baths but seems to enjoy the water. She is a very sweet and adorable little fluffball that needs a loving home the will provide her with lots of love!" Fancy 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. 
 
 

Tyler, a Terrier mix
 
Meet Tyler!  Tyler is a 5-7 year old male Terrier mix and he weighs about 10 pounds. Tyler arrived in foster care after testing positive for heartworms at animal control. He has been treated, is doing great and has settled in nicely to his foster home. However, he is ready to find a forever family to call his own!  His foster mom say, "Tyler is a sweet, fun loving boy who is happiest when he has someone who will play fetch and tug-a-war with him.  He will  play tug-a-war with humans or other dogs. When he is playing with other dogs, he backs down, but with humans he still needs to learn he is not the boss. He is still learning and practicing certain behaviors such as ‘cats are not toys’ and ‘table legs are not fireplugs’ and ‘you have to give up the ball if you want them to throw it’, all of which he is figuring out. He loves to hang out with my three small dogs and all adult humans, although he is a little afraid of a visiting, playful larger dog.
 
He appears to have new  some new hair growth and is still a little itchy, however it seems to be getting better over time.  I have not yet had him on a leash as he runs in the back yard under supervision. He is very loving and affectionate, but not in-your-face needy. He rarely barks. Tyler sleeps on my bed and settles down nicely and is calm and quiet all night.  Tyler would do best in a home with at least one other small dog to play with. He may adjust to a calmer larger dog, but that could take time and adjustment. He is learning not to chase cats, however a cat that is not used to dogs may not work well with him since he is still very curious and playful. Because he can still play a little bit aggressively and will need some work with that, a home without children would be best. Tyler is housetrained on a schedule, however has been known to pick a favorite spot to mark and will need some training and monitoring until he adjusts." Tyler is neutered, up to date on vaccines, on flea and heartworm prevention, microchipped, and has had his teeth cleaned! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $275.
 
 

Micah, a Havanese
 
Meet Micah! Micah is a 2 year old male Havanese and he weighs about 10 pounds. He arrived in rescue after he was purchased as a puppy by a family who just was not ready for one, then given to a friend, who also found a puppy to be too much work, and then he arrived in rescue. He has settled into foster care and has settled in nicely. He is doing great, but is ready for a forever home of his own! His foster mom says: "Hi! Hi! Hi! Micah’s happy to meet you yaps will ring through the air upon greeting him. Micah is a very happy, playful pup. He loves to run around the yard and play fetch. He walks very well on a leash and loves to go for long walks, with some fast jogging. (I don’t run, but I suspect he would like to). Micah does like to mark at first, but after I cleaned up all of his “marking territory” in the house, he hasn’t  marked since.  This may lessen the more time that passes since he has been neutered now.
 
Micah is currently housetraining and does well during the day with frequent outside breaks.  He wears a puppy band at night. Micah is very friendly to all humans and will play with other pups, but has a tendency to growl at them if they come too close to his food or toys. Micah likes to know where you are, but does not need to be near to you and prefers playing to cuddling. He is crate trained and does whine a bit but settles down within a few minutes. Micah is just a bright-eyed playful pup, that needs a family whose energy level matches his!: He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and microchipped! Micah is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $350.
 
 

Skylark, a Terrier mix
 
Meet Skylark! Skylark is a 1-2 year old female Terrier mix and she weighs about 9 pounds. She arrived in rescue from a very large hoarding situation with over 140 dogs. She has settled into foster care and is learning how to "dog" and has been doing great. Her foster mom says, "She came to us from a large hoarding situation and though she had been fed and was not abused, she did not have much experience with humans. She is making up for that now! Sky is still quite timid but is also a joyful bundle of love and wiggles. She will take a day to warm up to new people but is a somewhat shy but happy companion once she does. Sit calmly and she will soon jump in your lap and after that you will not be able to get her off! She likes affection, treats, toys, romping about, and the company of other happy pups.
 
A playful fur friend is a REQUIREMENT for Sky, as we discovered she takes her cue on “good humans” from other confident dogs and so adjusts much quicker. An elderly dog will not work, as she can be a pest to an unwilling playmate. When unsure or frightened, Sky will cower or hide, has occasionally showed some submissive peeing, but is never in the least aggressive. I don’t think she knows what a growl is. She likes both men and women. At her small size only savvy older children, please. Sky is crate trained overnight and for reasonable (4-5 hours) periods during the day. She will also use a potty pad. Oh, and she can jump and climb so a crate or tall gate is needed. She loves playing in a fenced yard with you outside with her, and she does need a fenced yard in her new home as well. Sky is a little dog angel and we just love her!" Skylark 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.
 
 

Scooter, a Chihuahua
 
Meet Scooter! Scooter is a 5-7 year old male Chihuahua and he weighs about 7 pounds. Scooter arrived in rescue after he was left by his family at animal control with no explanation. He was very scared there, so he came to rescue. Scooter did have "cherry eye" (which you can see in the pictures) but he has had them repaired, and is doing great. His foster mom just hasn't taken new "glamour shots" yet as he heals up from his surgery:) He has settled into his foster home and his foster mom says, "Scooter as you can see is a very handsome boy and I’m pretty sure he knows it! Scooter’s new owner must have prior Chihuahua experience as he is your typical Chihuahua, with a few additional quirks. He is a one owner type of pup and will aggressively protect his owner from all perceived threats. This includes people and other animals. Because he's an overly loyal pup, he will follow his owner every step you take and if you are on the couch then he needs to be on e couch as well. He does sleep in his own area however and is okay when you leave the room or the house.
 
He is not a huge barker and doesn’t bark at all unless another person or animal comes into the house. Although he walks great on a leash, he does need a fenced yard in order for him to feel safe. Taking him for walks is an ordeal for him as he is scared of everything and it will stress him out. He also has a bit of a fear of being picked up and goes rigid when being picked up and won’t relax until he is completely supported. He is not housetrained completely but on a tight schedule has gone potty outside very well. We can’t stress this enough, Scooter will attack the feet of any other living human in the house that is not his owner, so we can’t adopt to anyone with children or thinking of having children. Give Scooter a chance and he will be the most loyal, little best friend you’ve ever had!!" Scooter 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.
 
 

William, a Shih Tzu mix
 
Meet William! William is a 5-7 year old, 9 pound strawberry blonde Shih Tzu mix. He arrived in rescue from a very large hoarding situation with over 140 dogs. He has settled into foster care and is learning how to "dog", and has been doing great. His foster parents say, "The epitome of a puppy with his empathic puppy dog eyes, wagging tail, and love of following his humans around the house. You’ll find William napping on a sunny spot on his bed, floor, the sofa, ottoman, pretty much almost anywhere else. William will do well in a home with someone at home or works part time. His care includes more trips to the backyard to help him stick to a potty training schedule, more supervision when he eats too quickly, due to growing in a home competing with almost 200 other animals, and around fingers with treats. 
 
We wouldn’t suggest a house with small children because he may nip if it looks like they have treats in their hands or while playing. This won’t be for long as he quickly learns about boundaries, and he needs another small dog in his new home. With patience, time, and love he’ll quickly grow to be a part of the family for a lifetime." William 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.
 
 

Dawn, a Chihuahua
 
Meet Dawn! Dawn is a 9-10 month old female Chihuahua.  Dawn came to the rescue after being picked up as a stray by one of our local shelters. She was very malnourished weighing 1.5 pounds. She was nothing but skin and bones, in the early beginnings of organ failure. With round the clock care and feeding she is now close to 5 pounds and is thriving. Her foster mom says, "What can I say about this special needs puppy? To begin with, she does have anxiety/neurological issues and will spin in circles when she walks/runs and will spin in tight circles when overly excited. A thunder shirt sometimes helps with this.  Dawn does take time to warm up to you and is scared when picked up (you have have to hold her like a football). She has gotten better and has learned she loves to be petted and will come to you, kind of - she stands close enough for you to reach out and pet her. She will stand there for a long time allowing you to love on her and will even give you kisses on your hands in appreciation. She at times will even jump up on your legs in excitement and ask to be petted. This will happen on her terms. Once she is comfortable with you she will follow you everywhere while chasing your feet and trying to catch them. It’s a big game to her, she will either try to lick you or play with your shoes while you're moving. She can be very quiet for long periods at a time, but once she fixates on something she will bark non stop until you redirect her attention to something else for this reason, NO shared walls . She is in an x-pen at night in our room and is super quiet all night. She can not be walked on a leash due to her spinning (the leash will twist so much it will cut your circulation off) - She MUST have a fenced in backyard.
 
Dawn will use a potty pad if one is put down for her. She also thinks potty pads are fun toys to shred, pure puppy antics. You have to put them down when she’s not looking. She gets along with other dogs. At first she will bark at them, but as soon as she realizes they are nice she wants to be their BFF. She doesn’t know boundaries when it comes to playtime with her four legged friends so she will need a very easy going, playful playmate. She has really started enjoying sunning herself while lounging in the yard. She also loves food and toys, toys and more toys. Oh and shoes while either on your feet or off, lol. Dawn often takes time out to smell the flowers in our yard .... she will happily pick them for you as well!  She is very agile and can jump up on furniture with ease. You will find her sometimes standing on something and wonder how the heck she got there.  Everyday Dawn gets braver and braver and sweeter. Dawn has even started jumping on the couch and cuddling next to me and the other pups. She needs a very patient home and would do best in a home with older children who understand that she is not a toy and can not be carried around." Dawn 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 $300.
 
 

Milo, a Pekingese mix
 
Meet Milo! Milo is a 4-5 year old male Pekingese mix and he weighs about 14 pounds. He arrived in rescue from a very large hoarding situation, with over 140 dogs. He has settled into foster care, and is learning how to "dog", and has been doing great. He does only have one eye, but he just loves the fact that he is winking at everyone, and doesn't let it phase him! His foster mom says he would like to introduce himself... Hi, my name is Milo! My foster mom doesn’t know my breed, but I have tiny little legs and the coolest fan tail! It takes me a while to warm up to new people and I seem to be the most hesitant around men (no biting, just a little growling and hiding under the bed). 
 
They’re teaching me not to be afraid of going outside, how to play with toys and play hide and seek under the bed. My favorite things to do are cuddling on the couch, chewing on small bones and plush toys, and sleeping in the big king bed my foster parents have. I do go in the crate when they have to go to work or run errands. When I’m unsupervised, I have been known to chew electrical cords. I am very skilled at climbing up and over adjustable baby gates, and I love to steal my foster brother and sister’s food at dinner so I have to be separated by a gate I can’t climb. I’m very sweet and would love a home with a dog who can help me come out of my shell. My foster parents can only think of good things to say about me, so I know I’ll be a great fit in your home!" Milo 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.
 
 

Mouse, a Long Haired Chihuahua mix
 
Meet Mouse! Mouse is a 5 year old, male, Long Haired Chihuahua mix and he weighs about 15 pounds. He arrived in rescue when his previous family could no longer care for him. He has settled in to his foster home nicely, but would really enjoy having a forever family to call his own! His foster mom says, "Mouse is one handsome boy and he knows it! He is good on a leash and seems to be completely housetrained.
 
He won’t let you know he needs to go outside though, so it is best to take him out every few hours. He takes a minute to warm up to people, but when he does he expects belly rubs. His favorite hobby is getting all the snuggles. He will play with toys occasionally but prefers the comfort of your lap. While he will tolerate other dogs, it is clear he expects most of the attention. He is adept in the art of begging and will engage his begging pose whenever he believes he deserves attention or if you are consuming human food. He would be best in a home without cats. Other than that, Mouse is a little lovebug and will worm his way into even the hardest of hearts!" Mouse 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.
 
 

Scruffy, ADOPTED!
 
Meet Scruffy! Scruffy is a 5-6 month old female Weimeraner mix and she weighs about 18 pounds. She could grow to be around 40-60 pounds, but we do not know for sure. Scruffy arrived at FLDR after originally coming into another local rescue, who's founder unexpectedly suddenly passes away, and they asked us if we could please take Scruffy in. Originally from a shelter in rural Georgia, this sweet girl has had quite a few adventures in her short life, but has settled into foster care well and is ready to find a forever home of her own. Her foster dad says, "Scruffy, or Sofia as I call her (I think she just needed a more regal name!) is as cute and sweet as can be! She has the most beautiful eyes and personality to go with them.
 
She’s crate trained and is working on walking on a leash and is doing well with her housetraining on a schedule. She gets along with dogs of all sizes and loves people. She wants to please and will be a wonderful addition to any home. She loves playing with toys and loves attention! Scruffy will need a family that is up for all things puppy, including all aspects of training as she settles in. This sweet girl is awesome and deserves a family to match!" Scruffy 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 $275.
