Tootsie, NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS
 
Meet Tootsie! Tootsie is an 11 year old female Havanese mix and she weighs about 18 pounds.  She arrived in rescue when her family was no longer able to care for her. She has settled into her foster home nicely and is ready to find a forever home of her own! Her foster mom says, "Tootsie is a very calm and mellow senior girl.  She does not bark much, does not chew anything and is completely housetrained on a regular schedule. She has had no accidents in the house. She "talks"  when she wants to go outside or wants food or a snack. She walks very well on the leash and rides well in the car. Overall, she is a great companion! 
 
Tootsie likes to go out for a walk, but is not high energy..around the block is just fine. She gets tired after about 10-15 minutes of walking. She seems calm around older children and  other dogs, but we have not seen any interaction with small children or cats. Her favorite thing is to flop over onto her back and ride an imaginary air bicycle! She does not show much interest in toys, teddies, or balls. She just likes to hang with her people and naps a lot. She sleeps all night through, currently in a doggie bed on the floor of the bedroom, but would love to snuggle on the sofa or bed if allowed. She would need a stepstool or footstool as she is short in stature. This sweet little doggie is like "Mary Poppins"...Practically Perfect in  Every Way!"cTootsie 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.
 
 

Scooter, a Chihuahua
 
Meet Scooter!  Scooter is a 5 year old male Chihuahua and he weighs about 8 pounds.  His foster mom says, "Scooter can be a shy little pup at first but once he gets used to his environment and has a routine he is a happy, tail wagging good boy. He listens well to instructions and walks well on the leash. Scooter likes belly rubs and some cuddle time. He is a moderately active dog. Scooter as you can see, is a very handsome boy and I’m pretty sure he knows it. Scooter’s new home must have prior Chihuahua experience as he is your typical Chihuahua. If you know anything about the breed then you know he is a one person owner type of pup. He is very, very loyal to his person and doesn’t seem interested in making friends with others. He would prefer to have you as his one and only. He will show you his appreciation by following you every. step. you. take. He warms up much quicker to women and would do best in a home with women only however he is super reserved when meeting new people in general.
 
He would do best in a low key environment and no children, as too much commotion makes him nervous. He is not a big barker at all (unless he thinks you need his protection) and although he walks great on a harness/leash, if you have a busy neighborhood, this would not suit him due to his nervousness. He is not 100% housetrained but on a tight schedule he should get it in no time. Although Scooter gets along well with other dogs, in his new home he will need to be the ONE AND ONLY!!! Scooter becomes very jealous when his person shows another fur legged friend any kind of attention. His new human will need to work slowly with him on his socialization skills. 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 $250.
 
 

Molly, a Poodle
 
Meet Molly!  Molly is a 15 year old female Poodle and she weighs about 10 pounds. She arrived in rescue after her previous family left her at the shelter because "she's old and has accidents in the house". They never even bothered to take her to the vet and it turns out Molly had a bad UTI, which has been treated and she is doing great! She is ready to find a forever family to love her!  Her foster mom says, "Molly is as cute as can be! She loves to spend time walking around the backyard with me exploring and smelling the flowers, even though she can't see too well. Molly gets along well with other calm dogs both, small and medium. She enjoys lounging around in a comfy dog bed and often you will find her cuddled up with one of the other pups in our home.  On an occasion, Molly will have a burst of energy and entertain you with her cute antics. 
 
She only has a few teeth so she eats soft treats in very small portions, and soft food is best. I usually crumble the soft treats in a bowl for her. Molly needs to have her morning leash walk or let outside as soon as she wakes up and then every 3 to 4 hours. Also, not too long after drinking her water, she will also need to go potty. At night the water is put up a few hours before bed and she hasn’t had an accident in the house yet. If you have a pool, you must watch her carefully because she doesn't see that well at night. At bed time Molly sleeps on a dog bed in the room with us humans. When she is separated at night, she will bark for a few minutes then go to sleep.  Molly is a pure joy and very loveable. If you are searching for a constant companion with unconditional love Molly is your answer!" Molly 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.
 
 

Lucky, a Chihuahua
 
Meet Lucky! Lucky is a 3-4 year old male Chihuahua and he weighs about 10 pounds. He arrived in rescue when his family could no longer care for him. Lucky has settled into foster care, but would love to find a family to call his own! His foster mom says, "Lucky is a shy, sweet little boy. He needs help with his confidence, so he won’t immediately want attention from someone he doesn’t know. Once he realizes that he doesn’t need to be scared of you (usually in a day or two), he’ll be your best buddy! He follows you around the house, but is good about not getting underfoot. Loud noises inside the house make him think he’s in trouble and he will tuck his tail and try to hide. Lucky does also tend to guard “his human” so if he’s with his person when a loud noise occurs, he will bark and growl if anyone else approaches. Based on our family, he tends to be more of a “Mommy’s Boy” than a “Daddy’s Boy.” Lucky is also very worried about his boyish figure and doesn’t like to eat a lot. He is much more interested in the food on your plate, so he needs reassurance that his food is special too. Lucky eats soft dog food (under protest) and will actively pick out hard food from his bowl if you try to mix the two. Lucky is a lap dog for sure. He loves to curl up on you for hours. He likes it even better if he’s under a blanket. If you leave a blanket around, Lucky has been known to tuck himself in. 
 
He loves to cuddle in bed with you, under the covers of course. Lucky needs to feel you next to him as he sleeps so his new family will have to allow him in bed. Lucky is working on his housetraining and walks well on leash. He needs to be taken out every 2-3 hours or he’ll have accidents in the house. You also need to make sure to take him on at least a small walk each time because he gets distracted and will forget the reason why he’s outside to begin with. I have worked with Lucky on his manners outside seeing people, dogs, etc... so he doesn’t say “Hello” quite so loudly anymore but will soon forget if you’re not consistent with him. Lucky helped pass out candy during Halloween and was very frightened of the kids that ran up to us, so I don’t think he would do well in a house with small children. Older kids should be fine. Lucky doesn’t mind other dogs in the house, but he more or less avoids them. As long as they also leave him alone, I don’t think he would care. Lucky prefers to be the center of attention and demands the coveted “lap spot” so he would also do great as an only dog. He hasn’t been around cats, but as he acts like one himself, I think once he got used to them, he would be ok." Lucky 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.
 
 

Skipper, NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS
 
Meet Skipper! Skipper is a 7 year old male Coton de Tulear and he weighs about 20 pounds.  He arrived in rescue when his former 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 dad says, "Skipper is an absolute sweet loving boy! He loves attention and loves to be loved. Skipper loves playing with his toys.  He enjoys chewing on nylabones and any plush toy that has a squeaker, which he will do everything in his power to make his own and destroy. His part time hobby is to remove EVERY toy out of EVERY toy box and watching someone put them all back in, and then repeat. He has a tendency to hoard a few toys to himself and does not take kindly to anyone who wants to take them away from him.  Honestly though, he really just enjoys his peoples company. Skipper is housetrained and will go to the door when he needs to go out. He is crate trained and currently sleeps the night in his crate, but would love to be in bed with his people. He does enjoy going for walks on a leash, but he needs some training. He bows up and barks at any unknown dog or cat we come across on a walk. 
 
It's controllable by an experienced owner, but he will need continued work on this.  He loves to go for a walk and loves all the people he meets along the way. He definitely does not like cats and will chase them, and does not back down - his prey drive with them is strong, so he absolutely needs a home with no cats. As stated he loves his people and tolerates older children. Skipper’s ideal home would be a quiet household where he can be the center of attention. We were told that he previously had separation anxiety, but we have not seen that to be the case, but we are home almost all the time, so a similar situation would be ideal for him, as he loves to be with his family members whether it is following them around the house, hunting lizards, or cuddling on the couch.  He can be vocal about other dogs, no apartments or shared walls either please, and he would do best as an only dog. Skipper has lots of love to share! Please note that he requires brushing and grooming." Skipper 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.
 
 

Snuggles, NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS
 
Meet Snuggles! Snuggles is a 7 year old female Lhasa mix and she weighs about 11 pounds. She arrived in rescue when her previous family could no longer care for her. She has settled into foster care and is ready to find a forever family to call her own.  Her foster mom says, "Snuggles is a great little dog and is adjusting to living with another dog and two cats.  At first, she tried to go after the cats, but quickly learned to keep her distance after the hissing occurred. She has learned manners from our dog and is a good house guest.  She is good with teenagers. but no small ones please.  Snuggles needs her space before attempting to pet her and especially pick her up. You need to go very slow with her. She needs time to adjust to a new environment and people, as if she feels rushed or pushed, she can be snappy. Once she does feel comfortable and adjusted, she will be your shadow. She seems to me that she would do well with a quiet, patient couple.  Snuggles has quickly bonded we me and she follows me around. Snuggles will lie on her blanket wherever you put it as long as it is near you.   She is mainly quiet and doesn’t bark when you are with her and she feels secure.  Snuggles is very treat oriented.  She will do anything for food.  
 
She also searches food out and tries to get you to feed her at all hours of the day.  Other pets’ food will need to be kept away from Snuggles or she will eat it all!  She will beg for food so she needs some training for that.  Snuggles will come when called and knows the sit command (as long as treats are involved).  She enjoys going for walks and is great on the leash. She is housetrained and will let you know when she needs to go out by going to the door. She goes into the crate at night so she doesn’t wander the house.  The crate is in the room where I sleep so she can still see me.  She is very attached and prefers to be with her person.  She will bark if put in the crate during the day and I am not sure if she will settle down or not because she really hasn’t been left alone as someone in the family is always home. Snuggles really is a sweet little girl!"  She is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and has had her teeth cleaned! Snuggles is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $275.  Note: *If you previously applied for Snuggles, and were notified she was being adopted, please know Snuggles was not adopted because she bit the potential adopter at the meet and greet when she went to pick her up. We have updated her bio to reflect this. Any potential adopter will need to know and be prepared for that, as she doesn’t warm up to new people immediately and does not like being picked up by strangers, at all.
