Chester, a Long Haired Chihuahua mix
 
Meet Chester! Chester is a 3 year old male Long Hair Chihuahua mix and he weighs about 6.5 pounds. He arrived in rescue when his previous family could no longer care for him. He has settled into foster care, but is ready to find a forever family to call his own! His foster mom says, "Chester has a lot of personality for such a small dog! He loves toys but is still figuring out how to play with them, he does have a little toy resource guarding that I think stems from him not having anything of his own before. He gets very excited when he knows it is time to go out for a walk and it can be a little difficult getting him into his harness as he is nervous of them, but its adorable watching him hop around! He is still learning that the world is not out to hurt him so he barks at just about everything while we are out for a walk. No shared walls (apartments or townhomes) for this little guy. 
 
He is a fast learner and is starting to become more relaxed.  He is fully housetrained and does not make messes in the house. He loves to snuggle and get attention from his humans and warms up to other people fairly quickly.He does not do well with large crowds, other animals, or small children. His ideal forever home is someone who has a lot of time to spend with him and is not away from home a lot. He has recently been neutered so his hormones and behavior will be adjusting for the next few weeks. He is very loving and a perfect addition to the right home, could that be you?" Chester 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.
 
 

Casey, NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS
 
Meet Casey!  Casey is a 10 year old male Maltese/Shih Tzu mix and he weighs about 15 pounds. He arrived in rescue after his previous family could no longer care for him. He has settled into foster care nicely, but is ready to find a forever family to call his own.  His foster dad says he would like to introduce himself, so here he is: "Hi, my name is Casey!  I’m a very friendly little boy looking for my new best friend.  I am cute, sweet, loving and loyal.  I love to cuddle and be close to my humans, so I will usually follow you around the house and am always ready to jump into your lap.  I am always ready for a ride in the car, so don’t forget me when planning a road trip!  I am crate trained, but also do well roaming around the house on my own.  
 
Although I am leash and housetrained, I do like to mark my territory to make sure everyone knows it’s mine! I'm working on this, but you will need to be patient with me, please.  I’m not a big fan of toys but am VERY treat motivated. I’m great with adults, older children and other dogs, but I won’t let another dog push me around.  I rarely bark but can be protective of my home and will make sure you know when someone comes to the door.  In my free time, I like to chase cats, but they always seem to get away!  If you are looking for a loyal and loving best friend, then you should definitely pick me!" Casey 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.
 
 

Prince, a Chihuahua
 
Meet Prince! Prince is a 5 year old male Chihuahua mix and he weighs about 6 pounds. He arrived in foster care when his previous family could no longer care for him. He has settled into foster care nicely, but is ready to find a forever home to call his own! His foster mom says, "This boy! Chihuahua through and through! It takes him a while to warm up to you, women faster than men, but once he does he will love you fiercely. Experience with this breed is a must. He’s been dumped twice already and will be a little "vicious" at first meeting. It takes time for him to trust you and that you will be kind to him, so a home with small children is not recommended. It took about a week for him to trust my husband because he is easily bribed with steak or watermelon. He acts very young like everything is new to him, like walking through the grass, snuggling with you on the furniture, sleeping under the covers. It was obvious he had never seen a cat before and was so curious and cautious with mine, and I think he’ll be fine with other cats.
 
He spent most of his time retreating to his crate for the first couple of nights, but now burrows himself in the nearest blanket closest to his people. He has had no training, but we’re working on that. He was marking in the house for the first few days, but now gets the concept of pee pads. He often does a walking handstand off of the pad when he goes so I don’t recommend them. He does that outside too and it’s the funniest thing! We’re working on getting him on a schedule. He loves other dogs, as long as they like him back. He gets so excited to visit with the neighborhood dogs, even the giant golden retriever! My boy Chi is a jerk to him so he stays close to me rather than trying to fit in with the pack. After two weeks they are starting to play together, but they battle over who gets to sit on my lap. This boy melts my heart and deserves his forever home!" Prince is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned!  He is fostered in the Orlando area ands adoption donation is $300.
 
 

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 moms say, "Skipper is full of energy and love. 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. Skipper enjoys 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. He's housetrained and knows how to sit. 
 
He would spend all day in the backyard hunting lizards with you if you let him. Skipper loves to be with his family members whether it is following them around the house, hunting lizards, cuddling  on the couch or sleeping in the bed. He would do well with other pups or by himself. 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 can be vocal about other dogs, no apartments or shared walls either please." 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.
 
 

Steffie, a Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix
 
Meet Steffie! Steffie is a 1 year old female Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix and she weighs about 15 pounds. She arrived in rescue after being found as a very pregnant stray and winding up at animal control. No one came to claim her and at the end of her stray hold, she surprised everyone with puppies! She and her pups went straight to a loving foster home, and her puppies are now all adopted out into forever families of their own and Steffie is ready to find a family to call hers! Her foster mom said she would love to introduce herself to you: Hi there my name is Steffie and I am looking for my forever family.  I am a young girl who is very sweet, loving and loyal.  It may take me a little bit to warm up to my new family but once I do I will be forever yours.  I am not a dominant girl and will defer to a dominant male or female  but I do need a human pack leader who will reinforce boundaries.  I am a very smart girl and learn fast.  I have not had any accidents in the house.  I would even hold it when I was in the room with my puppies because I prefer to go to the bathroom outside.  I have a LOT of energy so I will need an active family with a fenced in backyard where I can run around (not negotiable).  
I would like to have other fursiblings but they either need to be older and not care that I am there or smaller so I do not feel threatened by them.  I can also be an only child as long as you play with me and let me run off my energy.   I LOVE walks and love to go running so I you need an exercise partner that would be me!  I can be a little pushy in my play and need playmates that can handle that and humans that can redirect when I want to climb in your lap and give you tons of kisses and ear nibbles.  I need a home with no small children because even though I like to be petted,  I can start playing rough and mouthing so older children only and none of those furry balls with claws you call cats as I do not like them at all. Since I am loyal to my family, I naturally wish to protect them and my home from strangers and will need many slow introductions before I know to trust them.  My family will need to understand this and be willing to work with me.  I love to snuggle and would love to sleep with you at night and sit next to you on the couch while you watch TV.  If you are looking for a loyal and loving best friend I will be it! Steffie 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.
 
 

Fiona, a Dachshund/Terrier mix
 
Meet Fiona!  Fiona is a 3-4 year old female Dachshund/Terrier mix and she weighs about 13 pounds. She arrived in rescue from a hoarding situation and has been settling into foster care and learning how to "dog". Please know Fiona 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, "Fiona does have some emotional special needs as Fiona came from a hoarding and socially deprived background. She has come a long way but has more to learn and will need a therapeutic placement for adoption to complete her adjustment to pet life. This cute girl has been with us for six months. During this time she has gone from a feral and shut down soul to a happy and civilized member of our household. We think she will adapt equally well in time to a forever home, but the transition may be difficult for her and she might regress before she decides to become your BFF. She may resist meeting you or accepting your touch during a meet and great and for some time in her new home. Only someone who wants to patiently take her under their wing and bring her along for the rest of the journey should consider applying and should absolutely be willing to follow the strict transition/decompression schedule and recommendations for shelter dogs. Additionally Fiona should have a securely fenced outdoor area and another dog companion (of any size} to follow as she is dependent on her buddies for assurance
and is very dog playful. She’s ok with cats too. 
 
She is a little more accepting of men than women so there should be an involved guy in her new home, and no small children. Even with us she is still wary of being “captured” and would rather come to you than vice versa. Fiona sleeps on our bed and is so happy to have affection and cuddles where the people don’t tower over her. She sits by my shoulder on the top of the couch, takes treats with the others, and has learned to wear a collar and harness and to go nicely on leash walks. Mostly though she would like to observe life calmly from the background with happy dance homecomings, a comfy bed, occasional cuddles and treats, and frequent dog play. She would make a great companion for your (preferably male) dog! Fiona came to us without ever having had the option of going outside to do her business and had to discover grass. She first learned to use a potty pad and is housebroken to a pad inside, not to the yard or leash though she is learning. She will go potty in the yard but will also sometime wait to come back inside to find her nice dry pad so her adopter
must be ok with that arrangement, perhaps permanently. We do not crate her often as it makes her a little nervous and she is quite athletic and can leap out of most exercise pens. Here it has not been necessary to confine her as she will reliably find her pad in the house or a room and has not been destructive. Fiona has a short haircut at the moment but her natural coat is long and straight, and she will annually shed out the undercoat so will need grooming to neatly maintain either style."  Fiona is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and has had her teeth cleaned. is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $250.
 
 

Wallaby, a Maltese/Yorkie mix
 
Meet Wallaby! Wallaby is a 3 year old male Maltese/Yorkie mix and he weighs about 6 pounds. He arrived in foster care when his previous family could no longer care for him. He has settled into foster care well, and is ready to find a forever home to call his own!  His foster mom says, "Wallaby is a spunky little guy! He can be very energetic but also enjoys relaxing in a cozy spot. When he is full of energy, he loves to run around, even if it is just in circles sometimes! Once he gets his energy out, he enjoys relaxing by laying on my lap, being held, or sitting by my side on the couch on top of some blankets. He doesn’t care much for toys so he does look for attention rather than entertaining himself at times. He walks well on a leash with a harness, but gets distracted by anyone passing by and will bark, making his presence known while others are in his view, especially if they pass by on a bike! 
 
He loves being outside but can get hot and tired quickly. He is partially housetrained.He will use potty pads inside but will have some accidents. He does well in a crate or playpen and seems to enjoy having his own cozy space. Wallaby will sometimes bark when he first goes in his crate, but quickly quiets down once he gets comfortable. He is usually quiet at home, but will bark occasionally. He is unsure of new people at first and he may take a little time to warm up while he is learning to trust, so he will need someone who will be patient and gentle with him, and without an overly busy household. Also, someone who is not gone an entire work day would be best. He can be scared by sudden movements or loud noises and would do best in a home without small children. He is NOT a fan of larger dogs, and can be quite dog selective in general. Wallaby Loves having your attention, so he would be fine as an only dog. He's ready to find a loving forever home!" Wallaby 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 $375.
