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.
 
 

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.
 
 

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.

Dorothy, a Hedgehog
 
Meet Dorothy! Dorothy is an approximately 1 year old female Hedgie, who was found wandering an apartment complex parking lot at Florida State University. After a month of trying to find her owner, she was brought to our rescue. She has settled in well and is healthy. She is a typical Hedgehog and loves to run on her wheel and burrow in fleece. She is still shy, but we have been working on bonding and she would benefit from a home that is willing to continue that with her. 
 
She will take treats from you though and we have hand fed her to help with socialization. She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $100. She will come with her cage, wheel and all of her supplies.

Salem, a Domestic Short Hair Cat
 
Meet Salem! Salem is a 5-6 month old male DSH and he weighs about 6 pounds currently. He arrived in foster care after some big adventures as a young kitten that included somehow winding up in a car engine, then when he was rescued from there, a hawk tried to snag him as a snack, but thankfully the humans close by saw the hawk and scooped Salem up before he did. Although our rescue is a dog rescue, my daughter was home for the summer and happily took Salem in. Salem has been raised in a loving foster home since he was around month old. Since his arrival he has not had one single accident outside of his litter box. He is very smart and very curious. He has been raised around dogs and shares my daughter's room with a senior Pomeranian, who Salem thinks is his best friend. Oreo (the Pom) lets Salem play with his tail and they sometimes snuggle. They share a water bowl and Salem enjoys having the company. Salem likes affection from his humans, but in shorter spurts and more on his terms, although he does sleep snuggled up alongside or at the top of my daughter's bed with her. He is full of personality and will talk to you, especially if he is ready for breakfast or dinner. 
 
He has never been outside since arriving in foster care and is a strictly indoor cat. He does like to explore around the house and sit on the windowsill and get some sun. Salem has also had the experience of being bathed, and while he is not necessarily a fan, we have managed to come out of the experience with all of our appendages and no lasting scars or scratches, LOL (he's actually somewhat decent about it). He loves to play with his toys and his favorite game is actually to push one of his little mice under my daughter's door out into the hallway and wait for you to push it back to him. As my husband is highly allergic to cats, we do not have any other cats, just dogs and hedgehogs, so I can't say for sure how he would do, but Salem is pretty passive and submissive with all the living things he has encountered here. We really do adore him and can't say enough good things about him, Salem is a wonderful, special kitten that is looking for a family to love and appreciate him forever! Salem is neutered, up to date on vaccines, on flea prevention, FeLV/FIV negative and microchipped. He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $50.
