 Adoptable Dogs 

Laser, a Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix
 

Laser is a 2-3 year old Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix and he weighs about 13 pounds.  His foster dad says, "Laser is a very sweet guy that has lots of love to share. He is playfully and very loyal once he trusts you. 

 
He enjoys sleeping on your lap or beside you when watching TV or anytime to just be with you. This very loving boy gets along well with dogs of all sizes from a great dane to a silkie terrier. He is crate trained and housetrained on a schedule. He just wants to please his people." Laser 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.
 

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 dad says, "Chachi is an alert and cautious little guy, but with treats and kindness, very soon warms up and wants to play. 

 
He now follows me everywhere and wants to snuggle with me anytime he can. Chachi will be a loving 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. He is crate trained and housetrained on a schedule and gets along well with dogs from his size to a great dane." 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.
 
 

Starlight, a Mixed Breed
 
Starlight is a 6 month old female Long Haired Chihuahua/Pom/Lab mix puppy and she weighs just about 18 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 housetraining, 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 starter position in Puppy Bowl XI on Animal Planet this year! 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.
 
 

Jason, an American Eskimo/Pom mix
 
Jason is a 3 year old male American Eskimo/Pom mix, and he weighs about 19 pounds! His foster mom says, "Sweet and cuddly, Jason has had a rough time in the past few weeks, and he needs a soft place to land. 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. I will be honest though, I just can’t see him in a home with seniors, especially with his pulling on the leash. He has A LOT of energy and is very strong, he is NOT leashed trained and he likes to run around in our fenced yard. 
 
I think he would do best with a younger couple and a fenced yard, also he should not have small children in the house as he is rough when he plays and mouthy. He's learning better manners, but for now it's best for older kids only." 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.
 
 

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.
 
 

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.
 

Emily, a Maltese/Terrier mix
 
Emily is a 6-7 year old female Maltese/Terrier mix and she weighs about 16 pounds.  Her foster mom says, "Emily is a fun loving, happy little girl. She is friendly with people and she gets along with my other dogs and cats. However, she likes the cats way more than they like her. She just can’t understand why they don’t want to play with a fun girl like her! 
 

A home without timid cats might work out best for Emily. She loves to explore the yard and go for walks. She has to have eye drops for a dry eye issue right now but is very good and patient about letting me apply them. She usually sleeps in her dog bed next to my bed but if I bring her up on my bed she happily snuggles close. Belly rubs and plenty of attention are very much appreciated! Emily has a good appetite and loves her treats! She seems to be housetrained. There have been very few accidents in the house since she has been there and those were likely from other culprits. Emily is looking forward to being a cherished companion to a quiet family of adults and maybe older children." Emily 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 $225.

 
 

Phanta, a Poodle
 

Phanta is a 4 year old female Poodle and she weighs about 12 pounds. Her foster mom says," Phanta is the sweetest little girl. She has bonded totally with my husband and myself. She gets along well with my toy poodle and my golden retriever, although she would prefer to be an only dog and not have to share her person. I don’t know about cats, as we don't have any. She is potty pad trained and NEVER misses. What Phanta wants most in life is a quiet home without kids , and a lap to snuggle on. She was terrified when she arrived here fresh out of the shelter and separated from her puppy (not our choicest FLDR, but another rescue scooped up her puppy and left her behind!). She wanted nothing to do with anyone for a few days, understandably so. However, once she realized that small poodle was not on the menu at my house, and I gained her trust, she bonded quickly and tightly to us. She doesn’t care much for strangers, because it takes her a little while to warm up to people. She is not overtly aggressive to strangers, she just doesn’t trust them, and doesn’t want to be touched or petted by people she doesn’t know. 

 
She is very easy to groom and brush. She prefers to sleep in my recliner, even though she has been offered our bed a few times, she always gets down. She doesn’t play with toys a lot but LOVES a good bone. She especially likes one that is meant for my golden retriever and is almost her size. She doesn’t bark unless there is a reason to bark, like someone at the door. If you are willing to have a little patience while getting to know her, you could not be rewarded with a more loyal friend than Phanta. She would be perfect for someone who is retired, a couple with no children, or a single person who wants a quiet companion to hang out with. All you need to provide is a lap and a good bone, and she will be in heaven. Won't you give her a chance?" Phanta 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.
 

Jamie, a Mini Poodle
 
Jamie is a seven year old male Mini-Poodle and he weighs about 18 pounds. He came into rescue from a hoarding situation, and he is really loving all the individual attention he now receives! Sadly, he didn't receive much prior, so he will need a family that is willing to be patient with him as he builds his confidence. Jamie needs a dog savvy family, so first time dog owners or homes with children under 10 are not ideal for him. His foster mom says, "Jamie is a professional cuddler! He loves the climb in your lap or lay snuggled up next to you on the couch or the bed. 
 
He loves attention and always wants to be with whoever is home and will follow them from room to room. He is super sweet and will give you kisses when you get home! Jamie likes to play with the other dogs and he will race all around to try and entice someone to play. He is doing great with house training. Often times he will go out on his own if the slider is open so when I tell him how smart he is he just looks at me like “Well I am a poodle, duh”. Jamie is still skittish at times and will not walk on a leash right now so a fenced yard is a must. It takes him a little while to warm up to people but that has been improving in the short time he has been with us. He also gets along fine with cats and will even share the doggie bed with the mean old blind one!" Jamie 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.
 

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, a quiet family of adults and maybe older children. Once she knows you are a good human, she wants nothing more than to be close to you and get belly rubs. She sleeps quietly in her dog bed and loves taking one or two toys with her for company. Joanie enjoys long walks and plays excellent with her fur brother." 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.
