Before and After

Meet LucyLu! LucyLu is a 6 year old female Poodle mix and she weighs about 14 pounds. LucyLu arrived in rescue after her human could no longer care for her or the other dog in her home. She and the other dog did not exactly enjoy each other's company, so LucyLu is excited to be able to find a home all of her own! Her foster mom says, "LucyLu is an adorable, smoochy dog with a big smile. She's great with new people and loves everyone she meets. She loves  going for long walks and snuggling in your lap. Belly rubs are her favorite! LucyLu is housetrained, she  will go to the door when she has to "go", but if she isn't taken out she can have an accident. 
She is still learning sit and stay. She only barks when she is playing with you.  At some point in her life she didn't have anything that was just "hers", so she finds it hard to share her toys and food sometimes. Because of this, we recommend LucyLu go to home a home with no young children.  With a little trust, you'll find she's a loyal and loving companion!" LucyLu 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 $325.

Louie, a Chihuahua
Meet Louie! Louie is a 2-3 year old male Chihuahua and he weighs about 6.5 pounds. Louie arrived in rescue after being saved from a house with too many dogs. He has settled into foster care, and is doing well. His foster mom says, "Louie is shy and reserved when meeting new people but once he warms up he becomes your velcro pup. His favorite place to be is anywhere you are! Once he decides y’all are best friends, he wants to shower you in kisses, follow you everywhere, sleep next to you (under covers preferred) and basically just be with you 24/7. Louie does have some separation anxiety issues and will need a family that is home more often than not. He will also need a home with no shared walls as he does cry when you leave. 
He has gotten along great with the other four legged furry friends in our home and would love to have a fur friend to lay around with in his new home. So far he hasn’t tried to play with any of them but he does find comfort knowing they are there and I will often find him napping with a “friend”.Louie is not 100% housetrained and will need a patient home and someone willing to work with him on this. He will not go outside unless you go with him (he prefers the buddy system lol) He walks well on a harness/leash. Louie could also stand to gain a pound or two, which we are working on. He was a little underweight when he arrived to our home and has slowly put on weight. Louis is a really loyal, sweet loving guy! He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! Louie is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $275.

Cardinal, Adopted!!

Meet Cardinal! Cardinal is a 6-7 month old male Terrier mix and he weighs about 10 pounds. He came into rescue as part of a large hoarding case and has settled into foster care well and is really enjoying learning how to "dog".  His foster mom said he would like to introduce himself, so here he is: I’m Cardinal, a lovable little boy dog rescued back in December of 2019 from a hoarding situation where 200 of my fellow dogs and cats were running around in a house without rules.  I weigh 10 pounds and my fur is black with some tan accents and a cute little white patch on my right front leg.  I’ve enjoyed being with my foster family and their 2 medium sized family dogs, who seem quite a bit larger than me.  When I meet/notice new people, I’ll alert you by letting out a little bark (but I’m definitely not the yappy type). Approach me and I’ll roll over on my back, show you my tummy, and hope you’ll give it a scratch.  I’m a good little eater; I’ll even try and eat the big dogs’ food if their bowls happen to be left down.  My foster mom is trying to get me on a regular schedule where after I eat, she takes me out to go potty.  By the way, I like wearing my harness when I go out on a leash, as opposed to a collar.  I’d say I’m about 80%  housetrained, but foster mom puts down pee-pee pads in case I forget.  Above all, I’m happiest hanging out with my people.  

I can’t quite be trusted to be left out of my crate, when my foster family has to leave home for a little bit.  I really don’t enjoy being in my crate by myself. I had another little dog roommate several weeks ago... we shared a crate and kept each other great company, but she ending up leaving for another foster family. I NEED another pup in my forever home and a fenced yard, please.  I’m going to work really hard to learn to be a well trained house dog and maybe someday I can be trusted to be left alone in the house when my owner is gone. My most absolute favorite thing to do is to snuggle.  Last night, I got to sleep right next to foster mom and I slept so good. The ideal family to adopt me, would be one that can spend a lot of time with me!  I would love having a little dog brother or sister, as I get along well with other dogs and don’t like being alone.  I think I’d be a good fit in a family with older children (maybe 10 years old and up). Even though I really like playing with my squeaky toys, I’d also be incredibly content hanging out in someone’s lap! Cardinal is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and microchipped. He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $300.

Buddy, a Dachshund/Terrier mix

Meet Buddy! Buddy is a six year old male Dachshund/Terrier mix and he weighs about 16 pounds. Buddy came to FLDR when his from puppy to now family decided they could no longer function as a family and had no room for their dog. Buddy arrived to his foster Mom with confusion and wariness due to his abrupt changes. His foster mom says, "He had been in same house and same family his entire life so the sudden misfortune of losing all he had known was depressing for him. He attached himself to his foster Mom like a life raft and has steadily decided love can be found anywhere. He came into our care with a UTI and bladder stones which were diagnosed, surgically removed and he is on a prescription diet which he will always need to be on to prevent future stones. He has the all clear from our vet, and two days after his surgery he was leaping and running like the wind. He was introduced to his foster canine friends and their cat roommate. It was obvious Buddy has lived a cat-less existence because he was clueless what it was. After weeks of work we are down to still frequently chasing and bumping, which said cat, I think Buddy also thinks is play. It is plain what Buddy would like is to chase the cat freely but a hammer is down on that type of behavior. With this said, cats might not be the best fur friend for Buddy as he likes chasing squirrels outside and it is a correction still ongoing with cat.

He is leash and crate trained but is fostered with a large fenced backyard and leash walking is not daily. He is housetrained and has frequent outside access throughout his day. Buddy is great on car rides and when meeting other dogs and visitors does some initial barking. After greeting, he settles down and is friendly with people and canine guests. Buddy has a light brown eyes and nose and he is stunningly handsome. He is somewhat cautious about “ear handling” head and body rubs until you can’t move your fingers anymore but very gentle touching only to his ears. Just saying n't snap or bite but whines and clearly wants off ear limits, he would need to go to a family with no small children based on his deference’s to his all precious ears.  Buddy loves sleeping touching someone and his foster Mom and Dad have easily accommodated his request.  Buddy is a loyal, happy, go lucky kind of guy but just know you will never be alone in the bathroom again including a walk-in shower because Buddy will be right there making sure you are ok. Need we say bath time for Buddy is shockingly easy as he stands there like its sunshine.!" Buddy 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.

Carmen, a Cockapoo
Meet Carmen! Carmen is a 4-5 year old female Cockapoo and she weighs about 20 pounds. She came into rescue after being surrendered to animal services after she didn't like being a toy for the new child in her home (can't really blame her though). She has settled into her foster home and is ready to find a new home to call her own! Her foster dad says, "Carmen is a very sweet loving pup. She is  extremely shy at first and will bark at you, but if you let her come to you, she will quickly warm up and become velcro'd to you. She loves attention and tries to please. 
She has not been around older children here, but does ok with "adult sized" humans, and I'm pretty sure she’s not found of cats. Carmen is crate trained and is working on walking on a leash and housetraining. She does good if you just watch her signals. Here she has a fenced yard and she enjoys her time outside with me but would rather be inside hanging with her people."  Carmen 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.
