 All PAWS in for Valentino!! 

What difference can just 8 days make.....8 days? Well, ALL the difference. The first picture is Valentino upon his arrival at Animal Control, pretty close to death. The second picture is Valentino smiling, happy, and greeting people at the vet today, as he prepares for a fun weekend at home with Dr. N! Dr. N thinks Valentino is a really cool pup (of course he is!) and so rather than have him hang out at the hospital this weekend, he gets to hang out at the Doc's house! How ...lucky is he?? We were pretty psyched to hear that today, along with some awesome news....are you ready.....Dr. N now thinks there is a 90%+ chance that the infection will be vanquished, and that Valentino's other front leg will be saved!!!!! How's that to start a weekend??? To just add to the good news and excitement, our Puppy Bowl XI Stars have worked out a special plan to help Valentino with his mounting medical expenses - they have made "Pawtographs", and for a donation of $15 you can have one mailed right to you, all laminated and pawtographed! Even Cara, the MVP of Puppy Bowl XI has lent a paw!! Simply donate using the link HERE and let us know which pup you would like the pawtograph from (you can add this in the comments section of your donation!) or if you just want us to surprise you with one! All of our Puppy Bowl Players are the Puppy Bowl tab in case you need a referesher:) Donate $25, and you can have TWO Pawtographs sent to you!!!! Limited quantities available, so get yours QUICK!! When we all lend just a small helping paw, in just 8 days, we can accomplish miracles:) Just ask Valentino, cause he's HAPPY!!!! THANK YOU!!!

 Meet Starlight! 


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.

Raja was just adopted by an amazing family who had been looking for a precious pup just like her! Congratulations Raja on your happy ending/new beginning!

How many dogs have YOU helped us save?



Oodles of Poodles!

Wednesday, February 4 FLDR took into rescue 17 poodles, ages 1-7 years old as part of a neglect case.  A breeder/hoarder was told by Law Enforcement/Animal Control that she had to surrender 17 of her 21 dogs and she had 24 hours to place them with rescue or they would be taken to the shelter. Working with our friends at Coastal Poodle Rescue, a team of four FLDR volunteers went and picked up all 17 poodles and spent the day at the vet getting them checked out, vaccinated, heart worm tested and settled in for the night.  These 17 pups have never been outside on grass, never been on a leash and the only car rides they had ever had were to the vet as puppies for tail docks:( or for the females to go to the vet for c-sections.  They all need dentals, spays, neuters and they all have ear infections, urine burns causing skin issues, and they all need some extra snuggles of course.  It's a big undertaking to take on this many pups at once, especially with no real notice or pre-planning, but we couldn't turn them away.  If you can, please lend a helping paw and donate towards their care.  We could also use supply donations to help them - as these pups have never had a bed, collar or toys of their own:(  We have a wishlist set up through Amazon Smile, and you can click here for it:  http://smile.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/?ie=UTF8&cid=A1JQKYM6K1ICE

Thank you thank you so much for helping us help these sweet pups!!

 All About Ace.... 

Hi there...have a minute? I won't be long, I promise. My name is Ace. At least that is what they tell me now, and I kinda like it. Flashy, right? Definitely an ego booster, and for a teensy little pup like me, I can use all the boosting I can get. I'm not the youngest around, about 10 now, but with a long life left ahead of me. I lived with a family for a long time, but I was more of a toy for them than anything, and they played with me like it, and I'm only 5 pounds, so I'm not really "sturdy" if you know what I mean. That dislocated my hip a while back, and it's been painful ever since. Sometimes it hurts so bad I would get a little cranky. Anyhow, because I was cranky, my family left me at a scary place with a lot of other animals, in a cold cage, alone. I mean the people were nice to me, but it was still super scary for me, so I just hid and shook. Then, this really nice lady came and told me I was going to rescue and scooped me up and said I was going on a freedom ride! I was so happy, but man, my hip hurt, and I was cranky. I try really hard not to be, but the pain....anyhow, the super nice people at FLDR got me to a groomer to get clean, and man, did that feel soooo good. My next stop was the vet today and the news was good, sorta. Turns out my hip is dislocated, pretty bad, and has been for a very long time (I tried to tell them that, but all that came out was Woof, Woof), BUT the nice vet said he could fix me all up with an FHO surgery to put my hip back in place, and take away all the pain! I wanted to just jump around for joy, but I can't...yet. The people at FLDR said they can't wait to get me all fixed up, but that we may need some helping paws to "get it done". Is that you? I'm kinda hoping they won't be mad that I snuck on the computer to post this if it helps with donations to my surgery. I am so excited at the thought of feeling pain-free again, and if you could help make it happen, all 5 pounds of me would be sooooo thankful. Thank you so much for reading my story. -Love, Ace

It's thanks to YOUR help and donations that we can do what we do, and we are so thankful for YOU!

Jan 15th: Hey everyone, it's me, Ace.  My foster mom is on the phone with the vet about Star, one of our new puppers at FLDR, so I took this opportunity to jump online and let you all know how I am doing!  I have had my FHO surgery, and am recovering in a foster home on a comfy bed with a two-legged foster brother who pretty much waits on me hand and paw.  He calls me his "little buddy", and that makes my heart happy!  I have had some really good pain meds to help me start recovery, and I haven't been cranky at all. I feel pretty good, and hope to be walking "normal" again soon.  My favorite thing is snuggling though, so I am not in too huge of a rush right now, I'm just happy the pain is gone!  I've been getting great food thanks to something called the Amazon Smile Wishlist, so thanks for sending that, and this super comfy bed, which I thought helped me take a great selfie, right? Anyhow, I don't have long, and it sounds like you guys may be hearing about Star later today, that call didn't sound so great:( But before I go, I wanted to thank everyone that donated towards my surgery, it was pretty expensive, but they were also able to clean my teeth and take out the rotten ones, so I should be set for quite a while now!  I was able to raise just over half of my surgery costs on my last posting (total was $1341, and $705 in donations came in) so if you could please consider chipping in to help cover the rest, that would be great, because it sounds like Star and a couple others may need some help too:)

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!

Click the Picture to Save One More!

 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!
