Boudreaux, a Lhasa Apso/Maltese mix
 

Boudreaux is a 2-3 year old male Lhasa/Maltese mix and he weighs about 13 pounds.  Arriving at animal control seemed to rattle this poor sweet boy a bit, as he arrived in foster care quite unsure of the world and scared.  He has learned his foster home is full of love, and he is thriving. His foster mom says, "Boudreaux is now happy, friendly, and playful.  He is still a little shy of humans, but loves his doggy friends.  Boudreaux really needs a fenced yard, as he has a lot of energy to burn off.  He has no problem showing his displeasure of larger dogs, so a home with friends his own size would be best.  He doesn't bother the cat unless someone else starts it.  

 
He's not much of a player with the toys yet, almost as though he doesn't know what to do with them.So far he prefers to sleep in his bed on the floor rather than on the bed with me and my others!  He loves to grab socks and such and carry them away!  Boudreaux is a wonderful, sweet boy who, with love and patience, will become an ideal pet, either as an only dog or with playmates!" Boudreaux is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $275.

Jason is a 3 year old male American Eskimo/Pom mix and he weighs about 19 pounds!

His bright teddy bear eyes are the first thing you notice, and then you discover his good nature and trusting heart. He understands the leash and a few commands, and what he really needs is love and attention." Jason is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned. He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $275.

 
 
 

Sassy, a Pommeranian
 
Sassy is a 10-11 year old female Pommie and she weighs about 10 pounds.  She had a birth defect and had to have her eye removed a few years ago, but her perpetual wink is just part of her charm. Her foster mom says, "Sassy is so perky, and gets along fine with my pup Buddy. She walks up the steps to get on and off the bed and sleeps on the bed curled up with us at night. She LOVES to be picked up and carried around. It seems her previous family must have picked her up and took her outside, as she will potty within 5-10 minutes of being put down in the grass, however she won't walk on a leash or walk out on her own, you do have to carry her out.  She will follow closely wherever you walk once outside in the yard though.  
 
A fenced yard will be a must for this precious girl.  She is delightful. I think she will adjust beautifully to a quiet home. She is really a wonderful dog. And, oh yes, she doesn't bark hardly at all - I think we have only heard her once or twice!  Although she doesn't like leash walks much, she will follow beautifully and will willingly wear a harness.  She also rides well in the car once you let her know she can't drive from your lap. I can tell you that she is quiet, sweet, gentle, and prefers to be on a couch or bed most of the time. She is one of those rare lap dogs that people look far and wide for!" Sassy is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped, and has had her teeth cleaned! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $175.
 
 

Chester, a Chihuahua
 
 
Chester is a 3-4 year old male Chihuahua and he weighs about 9 pounds. He came into rescue after being hit by a car and taken to animal control. His back leg was pretty mangled and had exposed bone. We rushed him right to our vet who amputated the leg, and within a few days, Chester wa up and zooming around like a happy pup again! His foster mom says, "Chester is a love bug! He is always a happy boy!! He has such a great temperament, and is a great eater too. He loves his stuffed toys/animals - we have a large toy box of stuffed animals and he brings them out one by one and surrounds himself with them on his pillow. He is working on housetraining still, but is doing much better and a schedule really helps. We have had him on a leash a few times and he did great, although we are mainly out in the fenced yard. He is a little possessive of us (typical Chi, LOL!) but he is sweet enough to overcome that as he becomes more secure." Chester is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $250.
 
 

Flint, a Spaniel mix
 
Flint is a 7 year old male Spaniel mix and he weighs about 26 pounds. He was adopted out to a loving family 4 years ago, but they are getting divorced and neither of his humans was able to keep him, so Flint is looking for a new family, that this time will love him forever no matter what! His foster mom says, "Flint is understandably confused, but seems to be coming around. He hasn't had a lot of interaction with our other pups yet, he still just observes them and whines at them a bit. 
 
He is housetrained, but we have a fenced yard, so I don't know how he would do with that on a leash. I don't have any children in my home, but his previous family had older ones and he was fine with them. He does want to be left alone while he is eating. He loves to be held, kissed, and hugged. He seeks affection, and would do best in a home where his humans are home a lot." Flint is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and microchipped. He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $250.
 
 

Angel, a Poodle
 
Angel is a 7 year old, 13 pound, female Poodle. Her foster mom says, "Angel is a beautiful and loving little girl. She is a very active and playful girl. She loves stuffed squeaky toys but her favorite is a tennis ball. She is good at playing fetch and catching it on the bounce in the air. In fact she would love to have a fenced yard in which to play fetch. 
 
Angel is a companion dog who enjoys being with people. She has had some rough treatment in her life and has a fear of carriers and crates. With patience and kindness you will win her heart in no time. She is obedient and housetrained.  She would do well as an only dog. If you are looking for a companion, and would do best in a home with no young children, Angel is the perfect dog for you." She is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had her teeth cleaned! Angel is fostered in the Lakeland area and her adoption donation is $250.
 
 

Eva, a Pommeranian/Chihuahua mix
 

 
Eva is a 4 year old female Pom/Chi mix and she weighs about 14 pounds.  She came into rescue scared and nervous, along with her newborn puppies.  Her puppies are all weaned and have found forever families and now Eva is looking for hers! Her foster mom says, "Wow, Eva is going to be a amazing companion for someone super lucky!  When she first came to us, we couldn't even get near her, she was in full on "mama protection mode".  With patience, love and some yummy treats within a few weeks we easily became her best friends.   She will dance on her hind legs and her whole body shakes when she sees us.  She loves to play with toys, either with you or on her own.  She gets along well with the other dogs in our home, and will share her toys.  Everyone is fed separately though, but Eva will let us take food from her without any issues.Wherever she lived before must not have treated her nicely, as she does have some fear of shoes and brooms.  We have gained her trust, and she loves to sit and snuggle with us and will freely give kisses.  She is still wary of strangers, and it takes her a little bit to warm up, but once we properly introduce them to her she does fine.  She is crate trained and housetrained, and would do best in a home with a fenced yard.  Given her wariness of strangers, an apartment or a home with young children (under 12), or a lot of people coming and going would not really work for her.  Eva is really a sweet girl, and we do adore her, and are excited for her to find a forever family of her own!" Eva 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.
 
 

Timmy, a Poodle
 
 
Timmy is an 8 year old male poodle and he weighs about 8 pounds. He is a very sweet boy who has had a rough start in life and would love a quiet, patient home to spend the second half of his life in, because he wants us to remind you that's only middle-aged for a poodle! His foster mom says, "Timmy is a quiet boy - typical poodle, he seems to "think" a lot, LOL! Timmy gets startled though by loud noises and a lot of activity, so he would do best in a quiet home without small kids or a bunch of people coming and going all the time. He is doing great with housetraining, we just keep him on a schedule. Timmy would really do best as an only dog, as her prefers to be the center of his human's world. He walks okay on a leash but would prefer to wander free in your fenced yard. He will lay by you for hours and he loves to be petted and held. Loves to sleep in the bed with you too!" Timmy is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $200.
 
 

Dee, a Poodle/Bichon mix
 
Dee is a 12 year old female Poodle/Bichon mix and she weighs about 12 pounds. Somehow poor Dee found herself at the shelter matted with yucky teeth and generally uncared for. No one wanted to adopt her, as she is older, but poodles generally live over 16 years, so she sill has a lot of life ahead of her! She's been groomed, had a dental, and is acting like a spry pup now! Her foster mom says, "Dee is a very loving little girl who enjoys the company of people. She would make a wonderful companion since she likes to be with you all the time. 
 
She is what we call a velcro dog since she follows you wherever you go. When she is really happy she does curlies in her bed. It's so cute! She has a little problem with her sight and hearing but other than that she is a really healthy girl for her age. Now that she has had a dental, eating is her favorite time of day. In fact she gets so excited that she becomes quite animated and likes talks to you while you are preparing her meal. She is such a love and really joy to have around. If you are looking for a companion this is your girl. She has a heart full of love and is waiting for someone special to share it!" Dee is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had her teeth cleaned! She is fostered in the Lakeland area, and her adoption donation is $150.
 

Maggie May, a Yorkie/Schnauzer mix
 
Maggie May is a 3 year old Schnauzer/Yorkie mix and she weighs about 13 pounds. She found herself at animal control after her human died and she was very confused and scared there. Her foster mom says, "Toy loving Maggie May is an active and happy girl that enjoys the company of other dogs and her people. Self-crating and well mannered, she sometimes takes a little while to warm up to you... but after being in animal control, who can blame her? 
 
She is a sensitive and smart girl, and will soon figure out that you are her best friend and playmate." Maggie May is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had her teeth cleaned! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $275.

Chachi, a Chihuahua
 

Chachi is a 2 year old male Yorkie/Chihuahua mix and he weighs about 7 pounds.  He arrived at FLDR very, very scared and unsure as to what was going on, as his previous family was no longer able to care for him.  He will need a patient family to help him gain some confidence and self-assurance.  His foster mom says, "Chachi is an alert and cautious little guy, but with treats and kindness, soon warms up and wants to play. 

 
This jaunty chap is bound to make a charming companion if you are patient and worthy of his trust.  Due to his trust issues, we recommend that he not go to a home with children under 13." Chachi 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.
 
 

Joanie, a Chihuahua
 

Joanie is a 10 month old female Chihuahua and she weighs about 6 pounds. She came into rescue when her family could no longer care for her or the other dogs in her home. She is very shy, but you can tell she wants to love and be loved so much!  Joanie's foster mom says, "Sweet and shy, this swirly girl desperately wants to be loved and protected, but isn't quite sure how to ask for it yet.  

 
Her foster home is working on her confidence, and her soft temperament is sure to earn her the most loving of homes." Joanie is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative and microchipped! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $275.

Bruce, a Schnauzer/Poodle mix
 
Bruce is a 2 year old Schnoodle boy and he weighs about 12 pounds! He came into rescue after he wasn't a big fan of having a toddler tug his ears and pull his tail and use him as a toy, so he got cranky and didn't want to play.  However, we have Bruce in a loving foster homes without small kids and he is like a whole new dog! His foster mom says, 
 
"Although I haven't had Bruce for very long, he is a wonderful dog. Bruce is very smart and loving, he enjoys the company of humans and loves to snuggle. Bruce is housetrained and will wake you up in the morning when he needs to go out. He also knows how to use potty pads just in case. Bruce has a lot of energy and loves to run to around. He is fine on a leash and loves long walks. Bruce does like to have all the attention and would be a great first dog to someone loving. I would recommend he be the only dog but is fine with older, well behaved children. Bruce needs a home that will physically exercise him as well as mentally." He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! Bruce is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $275.
 
 

Starlight, a Mixed Breed
 
Starlight is a 5 month old female Long Haired Chihuahua/Pom/Lab mix puppy and she weighs just about 15 pounds. She should stay under 40 pounds full grown, but we can't promise that. We know mom is an 10 pound long hair chihuahua mix/pom girl, and we heard rumors dad was a lab mix, but he wasn't around for us to verify that. Starlight has been raised in a loving foster home since she was two days old. She is still all puppy - and is learning house training, what a leash is, that shoes are not for chewing, and that not every dog wants to play 24/7, so she will need a family understanding of that and willing to work with her. She is also very people driven once she bonds with you, so she absolutely can not be left alone all day while her family is away at work - she will need a human or fur companion. Her foster mom says: Starlight is a doll!!! She has always been the explorer of her litter - eyes open first, first to walk, first to escape the whelping box, first to play with a toy! That being said, she can also be a drama queen and act like her siblings are killing her if they are playing rough - she prefers to be more of a lady I guess. 
 
She loves to snuggle and loves her people, once she gets to know them. She is a little shy around new people at first, or things coming at her head, but once she realizes you are a friend, she is your bestie for life! She will need a fenced yard, as she is still very scared meeting new people, and is not the biggest fan of leash walks, plus she loves to go out and run around.She loves to play and run SOOOO much it earned her a started position in Puppy Bowl XI on Animal Planet this year, so you can tune in on February 1 to watch her! She gets nervous in the car, so she will need a family willing to work with that with her. All the work will be worth it though, because when this sweet girl stares into your eyes, hers full of love and devotion, your heart just melts! Starlight is spayed, up to date on vaccines, on heartworm prevention and microchipped! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $300.
 
 

Diamond, a Chihuahua
 
Diamond is an 11-12 year old female Chihuahua and she weighs about 12 pounds. Her foster mom says, "Diamond is a precious gem !! If it were up to her she would spend 24/7 with you. She's looking for someone who has a lot of love and time to give her. Diamond will follow you everywhere you go and her favorite time of the day is when she is curled up in your lap watching tv and keeping you warm. 
 

She does go into her crate from time to time on her own (we keep the door open) to take naps. Diamond has now started sleeping in the bed with us and will grab her a spot under the covers and stay laying next to you all night !! Although she does have an old issue with her front paw it does not slow her down. It doesn't seem to hurt although when she runs or walks at times she holds it up. I believe it is out of habit that she does this. Because of Diamond's need to be with her human it is best that her new parents are home a lot as she will cry and fuss when you leave her. Ready to add some bling into your life? Then pick this gem of a girl!" Diamond is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, mircochipped and has had her teeth cleaned! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $150. 

 
 

Lucky, a Shih Tzu/Lhasa Apso mix
 
Lucky is a five year old male Shih/Lhasa mix and he weighs about 20 pounds.  He came into rescue after his previous family decided they just didn't have time for him anymore.  Lucky did come into care with an eye infection, and he is on daily drops for that, but he does great and his vision is not impaired! His foster mom says, "Lucky is a sweet and playful guy.  He loves toys, toys and more toys!  Lucky will grab a toy, squeak it, shake it and then head back to the toy box for another. 
 
 
Eventually all the toys are in a pile on the floor.  He also likes to play with other dogs and gets along great with little and big dogs.  Cats are no problem either.  Lucky loves going for walks and does great on a leash.  He doesn’t jump on the couch much, preferring to hang out on the dog bed with his toys but he definitely wants to sleep in bed with you at night.   He rides great in the car and enjoys running errands with you. Lucky is neutered , up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative and had his teeth cleaned.  He is fostered in the Orlando area and his adoption donation is $250.
 
 
 

Dos Equiis, a Chihuahua
 
Dos Equiis is a 12 year old male Chihuahua and he weighs about 7 pounds!  His foster mom says, "Don't let this little guys age fool you ! He may be a senior but acts nothing like one. Dos Equis loves to run yes run around the yard and explore.
 
His tail is always wagging and has yet to meet a stranger.He loves to sit in your lap and soak up some loving or just be carried around going from room to room with you. Dos Equis is the sweetest little guy. He is not a big barker however he will bark for a few mins when you leave him. If it were up to him he would spend all day at your side.  Dos Equis seems to get along with other dogs and would do fine with a fur friend or have you all to himself. If you are looking for a lover then he is your guy!" Dos Equis is up to date on his vaccines, heart worm negative and has had his teeth cleaned.  He is being fostered in the Orlando area and his adoption donation is $175.
 
 
 

Obie, a Shih Tzu mix
 
Obie is a 3 year old male Shih Tzu mix and he weighs about 18 pounds. He was turned into animal control by his family who could no longer care for him. He did come into rescue with heart worms, but he has been treated and is doing great!! His foster mom says, "Obie is playful, curious, friendly, and gets along with the other dogs. When he’s done playing, he likes to lay around his humans - he's not demanding but wants to be close. He follows us around from room to room. Obie likes to sleep on my bed at night - at first wouldn’t share his space but now will move a little to accommodate the others. 
 
He doesn’t want anyone around when he eats though. Obie is housetrained on a schedule, but we do have a fenced yard so I can't say how his house training would be if he was leashed walked for potty breaks. He is OK with our cats unless someone else starts barking when the cat is on the move; then he joins in. I honestly can’t comment on leash walking or children. Obie will do well in forever home by himself or with other dogs and he will be a wonderful companion pet!" Obie is neutered, up to date on vaccines, on flea and heart worm prevention, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $275.
 
 

Olaf, a Poodle
 
Hi, I'm Olaf!  I like to give warm hugs! Do you want to build a snowman? Ok, well I do live in Florida, so it doesn't have to be a snowman. I just want to play with you!  I'm a six month old little Poodle puppy boy and I am looking for a family to call my very own.  Life has been quite the adventure for me so far!  I even got to go on a big adventure to play in Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl this year! I was a little small, so I didn't quite make the starting line up, but I did get to play and you will see me on gameday! I'm a typical poodle pup they tell me - so I am wicked smart and love my people.  I get along really well with other young super playful pups like me, but I can kinda be annoying to the older ones around here.  
 

I'm only about 5 pounds right now, and I shouldn't get much bigger than 10 pounds, but I can't promise you that because I am still growing!  I like to play with older kids, but the younger ones are a bit too much for little me.  I'm working super hard on this whole housetraining thing and my foster mom says I am getting the hang of it, but she wants to find me a family that will remember that I am just a puppy, and I am tiny, so I need to go out a lot.  I promise I will love my family forever, and be the best boy I can for them!  My foster mom says I am super special (aw, shucks) and she is excited to help me find that super special family to call my own! Olaf is neutered, up to date on vaccines, on flea and heartworm prevention and microchipped. He is fostered in the Orlando area and his adoption donation is $350.
