Izzy, a Chihuahua
 
Meet Izzy!  Izzy is a 10 month old female Chihuahua mix puppy and she weighs about 8 pounds.  Izzy arrived in rescue after suffering a traumatic injury that left her unable to walk. She did not let that dampen her spirit and she has always been a happy pup who loves her humans. The swelling in her spinal cord has gone down, and she has regained limited mobility in her back end, but she still can not fully walk. Her foster mom has been working with her on water therapy (she's not a a fan) and she shows no interest in using a cart.  She will need a family that is willing to continue to work with her and her mobility issues.  Her foster mom says, "Izzy is the happiest special needs puppy (please don’t tell her as she has no idea) that you will ever meet!! She is nervous of new humans/other animals but after 5 minutes all bets are off. She quickly wants to be your new bff. Izzy absolutely loves to cuddle with her humans. Her favorite spot is on the couch next to you or on your lap. She is also a big fan of giving kisses. Izzy LOVES toys so be prepared to have lots available. She also loves playing with other dogs (once comfortable with them). 
 
She will need a doggie friend who is up for playing a lot and one that doesn’t mind sharing their toys.She thinks it’s fun to share toys that other pups already have in their mouth. Overall she is really good with all age pups and seems to know her boundaries. She is not a big barker but oh my goodness when she does it’s the cutest bark ever! Izzy wants to go outside and explore the yard any chance she gets (must be supervised). If you open the door she’s beelining for it. Sometimes you will find Izzy sleeping under, yes under her bed lol. Izzy is very food/treat motivated and takes her treats so nicely. She is a super smart girl! Currently she is incontinent and will wear her doggie panties with no fuss at all.  Izzy has truly been one of the best and easiest puppies we have ever fostered. Don’t let her limitations hold you back. If you do, you will be missing out on one of the happiest dogs you will ever meet!"  Izzy is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and microchipped!  She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $225.
 
 

Coco, a Poodle/Terrier mix
 
Meet Coco! Coco is a 10-11 year old female Poodle/Terrier mix and she weighs about 9.5 pounds. She arrived in rescue after her previous family was moving and could not care for her anymore. She settled into foster care and is ready to start looking for a family to call her own, forever!  Her foster mom says, "Coco came into rescue with some hair loss, but with good food and care, her fur is growing in nicely. If you want a snuggle buddy, then Coco is for you! This princess loves the good life and she is quite comfortable showing you by making herself right at home on your sofa, bed, chair or even your lap! Her favorite thing is to sleep with you at night, snuggled right up against your side, or on a pillow by your head. She is a very affectionate pup and will let you know she needs more pets by nosing or pawing at you. She does understand a firm “no” though and is easy to redirect.  Due to some cataracts, Coco doesn’t see very well and needs a leash to guide her on walks. She is housetrained, but can get confused if you have shag rugs, which kind of look and feel like grass!  She can be very shy around new people and dogs, so a slow and steady introduction is important. Coco gets along great with all the other animals in her foster mom’s house, though, including cats, guinea pigs and birds!
 
She is also good around her foster mom’s human daughter, who is 8. She is pretty protective of her people though, possibly a little house-possessive and can get a little nippy if not approached patiently and on the floor or outside. Coco may have been bullied around the food dish in her previous home, because she is very hesitant to approach her bowl. When she first came to the rescue, she barely ate at all. She had some tooth issues and many were pulled, so she needs smaller kibble and some wet food to help it go down. She is a bit spoiled where food is involved, so if you have other animals, especially cats, you will need a puppy gate or raised area for their food, because she’s a real food thief! She loves fine food and will beg at your table and steal your food too if it’s within reach. However, she is very gentle and not food aggressive at all.  Coco also sleeps a lot. We mean A LOT. Sleeping is her favorite and she will happily sleep the day away. Because of this, be aware she is not a very active dog and she tires easily on walks. If you are looking for a dog to play fetch with or take long walks or runs, this is not your girl, but if you want a "binge Netflix and chill all day" Coco is the BEST! She is best in a quieter environment without a lot of hoopla."  Coco 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 $200.
 
 

Oscar, a Shih Tzu
 
Meet Oscar! Oscar is a 10 year old male Shih Tzu mix and he weighs about 20 pounds. He arrived in rescue when his previous family could no longer care for him. He has settled into foster care nicely and is ready to find a forever family to call his own! His foster mom says, "Oscar the grouch? More like Oscar the lover! This guy is so happy and always has a waging tail. He doesn't jump on you. He may follow you around at times but he is very independent. He is content going to the nearest window to observe outside for long periods of time. 
 
He is housetrained, leash trained, still learning how to play with toys, not used to being picked up but doesn't mind it and just learned how to use stairs! He learns house routines quickly. He enjoys sleeping with his humans at night. He does well with other dogs. Overall, he's the definition of a good boy!"  Oscar 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.
 
 

Hank, a Yorkie/Dachshund mix
 
Meet Hank!  Hank is a 3.5 year old male Yorkie/Dachshund mix and he weighs about 18 pounds. Hank arrived in rescue after his family could no longer care for him. He has settled into foster care nicely and is looking for a forever family to call his own!  His foster mom says, "If I could bottle his energy and sell it, Starbucks would be out of business. He LOVES playing fetch and will play all day if you let him! If you can manage to get him to sit still for a moment, Hank also enjoys being a lap dog. He wants to always be with you and will follow you around the house. Hank is very smart and responds to his name. He even knows the “come here” and “sit” commands. He is housetrained on a schedule. *Amazing!* He walks ok on a leash, but he does pull a little so he needs to wear a harness so he doesn’t choke himself. 
 
Hank isn’t a big barker in the house, but that is not the case on walks. He wants to loudly tell everyone “Hello!”  Hank has a big bark and will use it when he hears unusual noises so apartments with people above and below would not be ideal for him. He gets along with other dogs, but needs some help socializing because he can get “too excited” sometimes.  Although he loves everyone, older dogs will quickly get annoyed with him so if he has a fur-sibling they need to have similar energies. Hank hasn’t been around kids, but I think he would be great with older ones!  Oh! Hank also wants me to tell you he Loves You Too!  (He cannot control his licker and loves giving kisses.)" Hank 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.
 
 

Regis and KathieLee, Chihuahuas
 
Meet Regis and KathieLee! Regis and KathieLee are a bonded pair of seniorChihuahuas. Regis is a 10 year old male Chihuahua and he weighs about 4.5 pounds, and KathieLee is a 8 year old female Chihuahua and she weighs about 6.5 pounds. They arrived in rescue after winding up at animal services in rough shape, with Regis needing his eye removed due to an injury. He hasn't let it bother him though, and is still a happy, wonderful pup! They are ready to find their forever home (together, we will not separate them, do not ask)!  Their foster mom says, "Are you looking for a bonded pair of cuteness that will steal your heart and keep a smile on your face? Yes? Well ... here ya go! Regis and KathieLee are the happiest pair of Chihuahuas that we have ever had the pleasure of fostering. Their tails never. stop. wagging! They both love to give kisses (Regis especially), get belly rubs, and cuddle up next to you on the couch, in your lap, on your bed, in a chair basically they love to be anywhere you are. Be prepared to have both hands ready at all times as they will jump over each other in an attempt to get their pets first. If they feel like you are not happily obliging to their petting demands they will nudge you until you give in. Regis and KathieLee get along well with pups their size but due to all the attention they demand and deserve, they would do best with no other fur friends (unless there are more than two people in your household to accommodate their petting needs). 
 
They are not housetrained 100% but we are working on it. They will use potty pads but don’t always hit the mark. KathieLee is always willing to go out in the backyard for a stroll but Regis needs a little coaxing or to be carried out.Regis loves to be held and will smother you in kisses if you let him. He LOVES his toys so have plenty of small ones available for his entertainment. He also has a funny habit of sitting down every time you go to pick him up. KathieLee does not appreciate being carried around and due to her nervousness when picking her up, she will do a submissive tinkle (she has gotten better with this as she is settling in more and more). Like most women Kathi Lee likes to sneak food from her partner's plate so they need to be fed separately or closely monitored so Regis can have a full meal. This will also help her to watch her girlish figure she is currently working on (quarantine weight .. no judging) A harness/collar makes them nervous - like they will lay down and not move, so they will need a fenced in yard or a secure exercise play yard with supervision at all times as they are super tiny! Adopting this adorable duo will bring so much happiness to your heart and home!"  Regis and KathieLee are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and have had their teeth cleaned!  They are fostered in the Orlando area, and their combined adoption donation is $300.
