 Stanley's a SUPERSTAR! 

We LOVE getting updates like these on our FLDR alumpups! Jill Rappaport, Award Winning Animal Advocate and National TV Correspondent spends time each spring in Florida, and while here in 2014, she met and fell in love with Jameis, a standard poodle in foster care.  After spending time with him, she decided he would be an amazing fit with her other rescue pups and could be a fantastic ambassador for rescue. Now named Stanley, this pup has made numerous TV appearances to help his mom Jill promote the message of "Adopt, Not Shop" and spread the word that rescue pups rock!  Stanley loves his mom very much, and we love her too:)  (Photo credit Linda Solomon)

 Meet Chachi! 

 

KMeet Chachi! He 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. Once he trusts you, you're his best friend! His foster dad says, "Chachi is an alert and cautious little guy, but with treats and kindness, quickly warms up and wants to play. Now that he trusts me and my father he now follows me everywhere and wants to snuggle with me anytime he can. He did well when my sister and children visited, he was cautious but after a short time he accepted them. Chachi will be a loving companion if you are patient and worthy of his trust. His loving personality with win over anyone. Due to his trust issues, we recommend that he not go to a home with children under 10. 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. 

 
Joy was just adopted by a wonderful family who found it in their hearts to open their home to such an awesome rescue pup! Congratulations Joy!

 Just Skin and Bones 

I know we should really be "immune" to some of the horrors we see in rescue (and that thought in itself is sad) but somedays, all we can do is just hang our heads and cry.   Today is one of those days. This is Chiquita Bonita.  A big name for a tiny girl.  Chiquita Bonita is just a four month old puppy, and where she should weigh about 10-11 pounds, she weighs 6.1.  She has basically been starved.  Mistake for a chihuahua mix due to her weight, the sad fact is she is most likely a lab mix of some sort, and just emaciated.  Sometimes our intake team pulls "blind", meaning based off a picture sent out by the rescue coordinator along with medical info, without us actually having our "hands on" the pup until we show up to give them their freedom ride. Chiquita Bonita is one of those pups.  When Jan first lifted her out of the crate her immediate reaction was shock and horror.  These pictures actually make her look "fatter" (you know the camera adds pounds, LOL!) than she actually is.  You can see every bone in her body.  Every. Single. One.  She has dual hernias that need immediate repair, and an abscess that must be treated ASAP.  Jan says all she wants to do is climb up around her neck and snuggle in for warmth, and that you can hear every heart beat, every breath from her. And feel every wag of her tail.  After posting about Mr. Magoo yesterday, it was really depressing to have to ask ourselves "is she worth it" - was/is this little pup worth the expensive vet bills we know we will have at the end of the day today - is she worth humbling ourselves yet again and asking for helping paws? Jan says the answer is really simple - yes. Every heartbeat says Yes. Every breath says Please. Every tail wag says Thank You.  Please help us help Chiquita Bonita. You can lend a helping paw through any of the links on our website, or below our cover picture on Facebook.  Every helping paw makes a difference, especially this time of year when giving is very, very slow.  Painfully slow, so much so that we have slowed our intake, but we just couldn't leave her or the other few pups like Libby or Clara or Wiggles that we will introduce you to behind.  We just couldn't.  Please lend a helping paw if you can, like and share her story too. Thank you. Sincerely, we thank you.

 Mr. Magoo, We Love You! 

$569. One year ago, we asked all of our fans and supporters how much a life was worth. For Mr. Magoo, it was $569 - this hospice case pup needed a safe, loving place to spend whatever time he had left - our vet and animal control both let us know up front if we had a month with him, it was borrowed time. He was in rough shape, no hair, a growth in his abdomen, and pretty much everything else a pup could have wrong, and over 12 years old, easily. Foster mom Debra vowed to love him, spoil him, and make however long he had left the best time he ever had. Well, Mr. Magoo just thrived under Debra's love, and he has decided that he is going to fight to get every extra day he can. So, a year later, Mr. Magoo is celebrating his "gotcha day", having defied ALL odds. He's had some rough bouts, but always seems to rebound. He's pretty much lost his sight, and sleeps a lot more now, but his favorite place is snuggled right up next to Debra, getting love and snuggles. $569 was what we needed to save his life and give him a year. We asked all of you at the time - was he worth it? Your resounding replies were "YES" and we can't thank you enough. In Magoo's honor we would like to welcome Magoo's Minions....pups that we simply want to take a chance on, so that their story doesn't end alone in a kennel when they deserved to be loved to the end of their days, not discarded. This week we have saved several senior pups - and we can't wait to introduce them to you. They need some extra care, but we think they are worth it. Our vet bills are pretty high right now, so any help you can give us would be great. You can use any of the links on our website, or the link below our cover picture on FaceBook. We can't think of a better way celebrate our Miracle Mr. Magoo, who is totally "worth it"! We also have our Amazon Smile Wish List (http://smile.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/…). We also could use foster homes - so if you are in the Orlando area and would like to foster, please email littledogrescue@gmail.com and one of our foster coordinators will reach out to you. Thank you for helping us save lives, because every one of them matters!

Welcome to Florida Little Dog Rescue Group!

Florida Little Dog Rescue rehabilitates unwanted, abused and abandoned little dogs and places them in loving and responsible homes to live out their lives as cherished family members.  We would love for you to join us by adopting a dog, volunteering as a foster home or donating money to help save the dogs.  We are a 501(c)3 Charitable Organization, and all donations to FLDRG are tax deductible!

Save a Dog on Death Row!
Many need YOUR help right now!!

Please help us save dogs on Death Row at local Animal Controls. These are dogs that can't be adopted out directly from Animal Control, mainly for medical reasons. When they can't be adopted, they need a rescue to save them when their time runs out.  These pups desperately need our help, we are their last hope!

 Florida Little Dog Rescue Group rescues dogs from all over the state of Florida, but our main focus is the Central Florida area.  Our volunteers live anywhere from Tallahassee to Tampa, but almost all of our dogs are fostered in the Orlando area.  We are 100% volunteer-based, which means no overhead or salary costs.  Your donation is used directly for dog care. We do not receive government funds. We are entirely supported by charitable donations.

We ensure that each dog is spayed/neutered, vaccinated, tested for heartworms and other parasites, examined by a vet and treated for any known conditions prior to adoption.  All known medical information is fully disclosed to new families.  While awaiting adoption, the dogs live in foster homes that provide love, patience and TLC to the pups! A pup's stay in foster care could vary from several days to several weeks, depending upon the dog's conditions and needs.  Unlike shelter or kennel living, fostering the pups in a home environment allows us to personally evaluate each dog for behavior and temperament issues.  We are able to see how they interact and react to other animals and children, if they are house trained, like to go for walks, play ball, etc. and that makes it easier to know what type of home/family would be best suited for them!

Please note, we are not a shelter. We do not have a kennel or facility that you can visit and see all the dogs. Each dog is fostered in an individual home. We do rescue out of our private homes and in our spare time. So, you cannot come visit our dogs until you have gone through the application and interview process and we have contacted you about scheduling a visit.  We do not have set "hours" and we answer all calls and emails as quickly as we can!
