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.

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.

    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!
