Chubba, a Terrier mix
 
Meet Chubba!  Chubba is a 3-5 year old male Terrier mix and he weighs about 10 pounds. He arrived in rescue from a hoarding situation and has been settling into foster care and learning how to "dog". He has been doing well and is ready to find a forever family to call his own!  His foster mom says, "Chubba (he came with that name!) is a very sweet boy who came into rescue from not the best of circumstances.  The first and most important thing to know about him is that he is totally deaf.  However, the second most important thing is that if you are looking for a chair/ bed companion, this is the dog for you! He loves belly rubs, head scratches and attention from his human. It took him about a week to settle down and then had smooth sailing.  He loves to sleep in your lap.  
 
However, because of his deafness he has some specific issues.... he walks great on a leash, but he is startled by cars, bikes and other people walking which causes him to stress out. So a fenced yard is a must and he should never leave the fenced area without a leash as he cannot hear. He has come so far in the weeks that we have had him! Chubba spent the entire first week hiding from us, but following after our own dog has taught him to act like a dog and realize how much he loves his humans. He will go to the bathroom outside with no issues. He sleeps in bed with us and our other dog, and he does not like to be crated at all. Chubba has been great around our dog who is older. I would guess that puppies and small kids would move too fast and cause him to get agitated causing a lot of barking." Chubba 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 $250.
 
 

Rocket, a Malti-Poo
 
Meet Rocket!  Rocket is a 7 year old male Malti-Poo and he weighs about 13 pounds.  He arrived in rescue when his previous family could no longer care for him. He has settled into foster care and is ready to find a forever family to call his own! His foster mom says, "Rocket (aka Rocky) is a super sweet and laid back boy.  He is stand-offish until he gets to know you but once he does, he is your loyal companion and wants to be with you all the time.  He will whimper at the door for a minute when you leave before settling in for the wait. Rocket is usually right by the door when you get home and he throws the best welcome home parties!  It doesn’t matter if you are gone for 5 minutes or 5 hours, you get the same party with kisses and happy racing around.  Rocket doesn't get on the furniture and sleeps on his dog bed at night.  His dog beds are his go-to “safe” place.  
 
Whenever he gets nervous or scared he will run onto one of his beds.  Sometimes he just stares at you like he is trying to tell you something but I don’t understand doggy telepathy and haven't figured it out yet.  Grooming is very traumatic for him so he will need to be taken to a groomer that can be patient with him and continue working with him.  He has improved quite a bit and was able to be shaved down to remove his mats and is sporting a short summer cut right now.  Rocket is housetrained and gets along with other dogs, but he finds cats waaaay too interesting and will do best without cats in the home.  He does not walk on a leash (it’s a work in progress) and requires a fenced yard." Rocket 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.
 
 

Egret, a Dachshund/Terrier mix
 
Meet Egret! Egret is a 1 year old female Dachshund/Terrier mix and she weighs about 9 pounds. She arrived in rescue from a hoarding situation and has been settling into foster care and learning how to "dog". Please know Egret 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, "Egret is a sweet girl, that loves to play with other dogs.  She is excited to meet humans and her whole body will wiggle with delight, but if you make a move to pet her, she will run away.  Egret is learning how to trust humans and will need continued socialization.  She has a lot of energy and will need a back yard to get her exercise since she does not have good leash skills.  
 
I am working with her on them and she is doing better, but will still not go potty outside on a leash, so a fenced in backyard is a MUST. She is puppy pad trained.  Egret is happy all the time and loves to run and play, with very little down time, so she will need a dog of equal energy for her fur sibling. Because of her situation, she will need to go to a family with other fur siblings, to show Egret the ropes.  She cannot be placed in an only dog home as she will not thrive.  Egret is good in a crate, just give her a toy or treat and she will settle right down.  Egret has nothing but love to give and loves to give you kisses have a few pets and then be on her merry way and sometimes will even lay by you for a bit and enjoy a good belly rub." Egret 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.
 
 

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! I’m a really funny little guy. I love to play with my foster brother and sister who are much bigger than me - they’ve helped me learn how to “dog” and I really enjoy the companionship, so I do need a furry companion in my forever home. 
 
We play with toys, bones and I love to chase them in the yard. I do try to sneak between the slats in the fence in my current backyard, so it would be best for me to have a paneled backyard fence where I can’t plan my escapes. I also love to be close to my foster mom. I like to cuddle and sleep on her pillow at night! I’m very uncertain of my foster dad and of men in general. Sometimes I growl at him, even when he tries to give me treats. I still flop around like a little fish when I try to go for walks with my foster family, but I’m trying to get used to the harness and leash so for now I MUST have a fenced in yard. I like to sit in the window and watch the neighbors, lay on my back when I nap and sit on the coffee table and stare at you! It takes me a while to warm up to anyone, but I know I’ll be a great addition to 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.
 
 

Carla, a Shih Tzu mix
 
Meet Carla! Carla is a 4 year old female Shih Tzu mix and she weighs about 12 pounds. She arrived in rescue as a part of a very large hoarding case and has spent the last few months adjusting and learning how to "dog". Please note Carla is NOT HYPOALLERGENIC and she does shed.  Carla will need a home with a fenced yard and another dog - these are not negotiable. Her foster mom says, "Meet Carla, aka sweet girl, cuddle buddy!  Carla is very shy, but once she decides you are an okay human, be prepared for a new shadow.  She follows me around everywhere I go, loves to cuddle on the couch and loves her treats.  When a new person comes into the house, she will bark and then run and hide in her crate, or under the couch until she feels it is safe to come out.  Once attached to her person, all other people in the house are considered stranger danger so she will bark at them as soon as they walk into the room (make sure each person in the house spends equal time with her to overcome this.)  She is working on her housetraining and it will be helpful to keep up the crate training, until she learns that the place to go is outside.  Carla doesn’t need much exercise as she prefers to lay about the house, rather than play, however she will need a fenced in yard to run about in and do her business. 
 
Carla will walk on a leash after she trusts you, but you can’t let your guard down for a minute because she bolts if she senses anything new to her. She doesn't like to be left alone, she wants to be with her human and has gotten quite good at scaling doggy gates, escaping X-pens and squeezing through impossibly small spaces to try to get towards the door to see where her human has gone.  Carla also will bark while left alone, but will settle down eventually...no apartments or shared walls! Carla is very submissive and once she feels comfortable will play with other dogs quite well.  She's chasing my other dog around the house as I write this!  Because of her situation, she will need to go to a family with other fur siblings, to show Carla the ropes.  She cannot be placed in an only dog home as she will not thrive and cannot be alone.  Carla is really the sweetest and biggest cuddle buddy of any other dog I have had! She may take a day or two to warm up to you, but once she does you will have a wonderfully sweet companion!" Carla 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.
 
 

Caramel, a Terrier mix
 
Meet Caramel! Caramel is a 3 year old female Terrier mix and she weighs about 14 pounds. She came into rescue very pregnant and from a hoarding situation. She has since raised her puppies and has been learning how to "dog". Please know Caramel 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, "Caramel came to us pregnant and very scared from a hoarding situation.  With lots of time, patience and some yummy irresistible snacks, she learned she could trust us.  She is still untrusting of people she doesn't know, so she is going to need someone very patient.  Caramel needs someone willing to work with her to show her not all people are bad.  She does growl, bark and back away from strangers but has not shown aggressive behavior to anyone that's been in our home.  When someone new comes into our home she really looks to us for comfort and guidance as to whether or not they are "safe".  Once she trusts you and bonds, she is like no dog I've ever seen.  
 
When she decides you're ok, she almost acts like a human...she wraps her legs around your neck for hugs.She has the gentlest kisses, she smiles (ok at first it's scary looking but now that we know it's a smile it's ADORABLE and we fully encourage it), and she's the only dog I've ever met that actually cries crocodile tears when she is sad or lonely.  When she's comfortable, she has ZERO respect for personal space, be prepared to have her up in your face for hugs and trying to get kisses from you....all the time.  She is great with other dogs.  In the beginning she could be a bit destructive when left alone so someone home, at least as much as possible until she is comfortable, is probably best.  She does NOT like to be crated and will be very noisy if put in a crate, so no sacred walls please.  She is almost fully housetrained on a schedule and she attempts to use the potty pads in the house but misses on occasion.  She is absolutely beautiful! Her fur is velvety soft.  She's really looking for someone who is patient and in time, wants a very close companion because next to you or on you is where she prefers to be." Caramel 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.
 
 

Starlet, a Terrier mix
 
Meet Starlet! Starlet is a 4 year old female Terrier mix and she weighs about 11 pounds. She arrived in rescue after coming from a hoarding situation and she has settled into foster care well. She has been learning how to "dog" but will need a patient, loving family to help her continue her progress.  Her foster mom says, "Starlet is a sweet, affectionate little girl, who is also playful and spunky. She loves to chew everything, especially if it’s not appropriate (like my shoes!) but we have been trying to work on that. Please also know at times she’s a loud chatterbox, so no shared walls, please. I have a fenced yard, so she is not normally on a leash. I’ve tested her leash skills and, with a quick review, she’ll be just fine. 
 
No children in my household, but she’d do great with gentle, dog-savvy older kids. She does tend to be underfoot and in your face, so no little tykes please. She was very curious about the cat, but she ignores her now. Starlet isn't completely housetrained but improves every day, consistency is key. At night she cuddles up to give kisses and then moves to share your pillow or snuggle against your body. She wants to be close! She gets along with other pups her size but often barks at the larger dogs. She’s ok crated for a short time, although not happy with extended confinement. Starlet would do best with someone home at least part of the day or can come home during the day to let her out. Open your home and your heart to this delightful girl who wants to share her love!" Starlet is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and has had her teeth cleaned! She is fostered in Flagler Beach, 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.
 
 

Elroy, a Chihuahua mix
 
Meet Elroy!  Elroy is a 7-8 year old male Chihuahua mix and he weighs about 16 pounds. Elroy arrived in foster care after being rescued from a hoarding situation. He has settled into his foster home well, and has been learning how to "dog".  His foster mom says, "Elroy has the typical Chihuahua personality  traits - loyalty, charm, big-dog attitude and confidence. He doesn’t like others encroaching on his space, so no small children or alpha dogs. He enjoys pets, cuddles, and lots of attention. He is food motivated and does best with positive reinforcement. Elroy is crate trained and housetrained on a schedule. 
 
I don’t think he had ever met a cat before, but after she delivered a few smacks, he decided to quell his curiosity and they’ve established a truce. He does bark at squirrels and unfamiliar sounds, so no shared walls. He is not a high energy guy; he loves to lay on the lounge chair and watch the world go by (unless, of course, he sees a squirrel go by!) He would be fine as an only dog or with a pup of similar disposition and size.  He doesn’t like big dogs, probably due to his diminutive size. He seems fine on a leash when I’ve tested his abilities. Give Elroy a chance to join your family and watch him blossom!" Elroy is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! He is fostered in Flagler Beach, and his adoption donation is $225.
 
 

Furby, a Maltese/Yorkie/Terrier mix
 
Meet Furby! Furby is a 3-4 year old male Maltese/Yorkie/Terrier mix and he weighs about 9 pounds. He arrived in rescue from a hoarding situation and has settled nicely into foster care and is learning how to "dog".  His foster mom says, "Meet the fabulous Furby!  He is a gorgeous chocolate and cream boy that looks like a Maltese mix, but we can’t be sure. This handsome guy sadly came from a hoarding case and needs an adopter that understands what that means and is willing to take on the challenge.  When we got him, Furby had never or rarely been touched by a human, and never kindly.  For a month no one could touch him at all.  He would jump a mile and hide in terror if he accidentally came in contact with us.  He would spin and thrash to get away and fear-urinate if we had to capture and hold him for an examination.  Through all of that he never offered to bite, though we thought he might from fear or desperation so took every precaution and gave him every chance to choose another way.  A month of trying to win his trust, then a breakthrough.  I had to force-leash him, and when I picked him up he allowed it!!!!  Then he sat in my lap and got petted for the first time, then brushed.  Then he started jumping in our laps on his own.  Go Furby!!  He went to the groomer and even liked it, according to the groomer.  So now it is time for someone to win his love and take on the challenge of this great little dog.  
 
Contact and affection still has to be very carefully done and on his terms, but he has taken the first steps and you can see that he wants to love and be loved by people. His adopter should expect a timid meeting and be prepared to be patient through a transition period.  So this is Furby.  He is and was always a happy, playful, dance around your feet kind of guy even when he was afraid of our hands. He likes toys, treats, being around people, and is very dog social.  Even when we couldn’t touch him he would lay near us on the floor or on the end of the sofa, take a treat and come running when called.  He is mostly quiet but be warned that his little voice is high in pitch -  like change he channels on the TV high.  It is very cute though and goes with the rest of him.  He loves, loves playing with other dog friends outside, so we would like him to have a dog sibling and a fenced yard.  He is vey small and still timid so only dog savvy kids and none under ten years old in the home. He will wear a harness and leash but is still learning what a walk is all about.  Neglect left his skin damaged under his abundant coat and though healed, he is working though some residual skin shedding/dandruff and will continue to need bathing, brushing and regular professional grooming.   Furby is not fully housetrained but he is coming along. For now he is clean in his enclosure overnight and for reasonable amounts of time, will use an indoor potty pad, and takes advantage of outdoor opportunities.  Come love Furby!  He is ready to love you back!" Furby 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 $300.
 
 

CaraCara, a Terrier mix
 
Meet CaraCara! CaraCara is a 2-3 year old female Terrier mix and she weighs about 9 pounds. She arrived in rescue from a hoarding situation and has been settling into foster care, and learning how to "dog". Please know CaraCara 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, "Cara  is a very loving lap dog. She wants to lay as close to you as she can. She likes to play but finds its awkward because she never has. She came to us fearful of everything and stayed under the couch and bed for a week. She now is comfortable to go outside, play with toys and jump up on couch or bed to cuddle. She loves being held and will sleep in the bed with you. However, please know she is not a big fan of men, they scare her, and she is just NOT a fan. She gets nervous and will bark at them. Cara is now trained so she pees and poos outside. She also goes on her pee pads when I am not around to let her out.  
 
She loves other pets and feels more comfortable around them than humans.  She is gentle and kind and lets the other dogs lead her around. She is a follower not a leader.  Cara has soft red wavy hair and she likes it when I brush her.  She has itchy skin at times and  gets a weekly bath with a sensitive skin shampoo and conditioner.  She likes getting bathed too. When introducing Cara to new people, there should always be extreme caution.  Not for the visitors but for Cara.  She is very skittish and scared of new people.  I would suggest no children in her forever home. She needs a very safe environment with females and other dogs to play with.  This is what makes Cara the most comfortable. Cara likes to go outside but for only a short time, the yard must be fenced in, securely.  She is much more comfortable on the inside. There is so much for her to learn, she is a super smart dog." CaraCara 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.
