Bradley, a Yorkie
 
Bradley is an 8-10 year old male Yorkie and he weighs about 7 pounds. He was adopted from animal control and then returned because the family decided they only wanted a cute dog, not a loving dog who may have a few medical issues. We think Bradley is an amazing boy, he just needs a loving family willing to give him eye drops daily (he does have some vision loss, but navigates his surroundings just fine!) and lots of cuddles!  His foster mom says, "Bradley is a sweet little man who wants nothing more than a belly rub and lots of love! He will lay next to you for hours at a time or will happily go find a comfy pet bed to nap in. Bradley gets along ok with the other pups in our home however he would do just fine with a family all for himself.
 
If another pet is in the home it would be best that they have a low key energy to match his and around the same age (or older). He’s not big into playing, napping is more his style. He loves to go explore the backyard however he walks great on a harness/leash. Bradley has the cutest bark you will ever hear and because it’s so quiet he would do just fine in an apartment type setting. He is not 100% housetrained but we are working on that. Oh! He also sits on his behind with his two front paws up begging for treats or for some attention (he’s happy with either choice). If you are looking for a quiet, laid back guy then look no further." Bradley 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 $200.
 
 

Tig, a Scottie mix
 

Tig is a 4-5 year old male Scottie mix and he weighs about 30 pounds. He arrived in rescue after being found as a stray and then testing heartworm positive at the shelter. He has been treated and is doing great, and is ready to find a forever family to call his own!  His foster mom says, "Tig is a big boy that thinks he is the perfect lap dog. Even though he is a bigger “little dog”, don’t let his size intimidate you! He’s just a loveable gentle giant! He gets along great with my own smaller dog, but can be a little jealous if he’s not getting all the attention and will try to push his way in. Tig loves playing with toys and likes to play with all of them at once. (Rope toys tend to last a little bit longer than the plush ones with Tig.) 

 

An area we are working on is understanding that not everything on the floor is a toy. He is housetrained on a schedule and loves going for walks. Tig can pull and is really strong so only bigger kids or adults should walk him. He’s not a big talker, but he will let you know if he hears or sees someone nearby when he’s in the house. He also tends to be verbal when he plays and he can get very loud, so no shared walls. I think Tig would like a fenced in area and an active household as he has a lot of energy to burn." Tig is neutered, up to date on vaccines, on flea and heartworm prevention, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $275.

 
 

Toby, a Poodle
 
Toby is a two year old male Poodle and he weighs about 10 pounds. He arrived in rescue after his human became really sick and could no longer care for him. This was obviously upsetting for him, but he has settled into foster care and is looking for a new human to call his own! His foster mom says, "Toby has settled in very well.  It took him a day or so to come out of his shell and show some confidence in the new people and surroundings, but they are slowly taking over. At the moment Toby is licking my leg and foot trying to divert my attention from the computer back to him.  He is still shy when approached, but happy to approach you, he just needs someone to take it slow and let him come to them, he follows us everywhere.  My grandkids arrived this weekend the pups are seeking their attention so I think older (middle school and up) kids are fine.  He is interacting with the rest of the dogs and after a cautious start they are playing a little and holding their ground for treats.  He seems to be essentially housetrained (but a new home should expect some accidents in he beginning) and I haven't seen any destructive behavior. Toby is an awesome leash walker and does his business just fine on a leash. I have only walked him together and with other dogs, so don't know about how he would walk alone, but he does love long walks! 
 
He will bark at the cat, but only sniff and act indignant otherwise - one hiss and he pretends the cat does not exist.  He will also bark when any human (including ones they know) enters the house or a room he has staked out (which is pretty typical for a poodle).  He's not aggressive about it, just a general announcement.  His favorite spots are on the furniture, particularly the top of the couches, so I would recommend he be with someone who allows dogs on furniture.  Toby likes to follow me around the house and is also very playful.  Toby started out being very attached to his fur brother Cole, but they are starting to branch out from each other, however he would like a dog friend in his new home and a fenced yard would be great, as he likes to run and explore. Just a final thought that Toby will need a patient home who will go slow with him and earn his trust. Every day he is getting more and more confident. With the right family, he will flourish, could that be you?" Toby 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 $300.
 
 

Sunnie, a Shih Tzu/Yorkie/Schnauzer mix
 
Sunnie is a 3-4 year old female Shih Tzu/Yorkie/Schnazuery mix of adorableness and she weighs about 12 pounds. She arrived in foster care after being found as a stray, and being very scared at animal control. She has settled into her foster home, and is doing great now. Her foster parents say, "Sunnie is a beautiful, sweet, and loving girl. It will take some time for her to open up, but once she does she becomes your BFF, shadow, +1 and will shower you with kisses. 
 
She has gotten along with our little pups and hasn’t shown any aggressive behavior towards them.You will need to watch her while she eats because she inhales her food quickly and will sneakily eat the others’ food if they leave it. She may be a bit too much for younger children because she gets excited and runs full speed when she sees people she knows. She’s working on her housetraining and crate training. She will need to be brushed daily but she enjoys it very much. A family that has patience will be rewarded with a pupper that will bring a smile to your face every chance she gets."Sunnie 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.
 
 

Cole, a Poodle
 
Cole is a two year old male poodle, and he weighs about 10 pounds. Cole arrived in rescue after his human became really sick and could no longer care for him. This was obviously upsetting for him, but he has settled into foster care and is looking for a new human to call his own! His foster mom says: Cole has settled in very well.   It took him a day or so to come out of his shell and show some confidence in the new people and surroundings, but they are slowly taking over.  He is still shy when approached, but happy to approach you, he just needs someone to take it slow and let him come to them, he follows us everywhere.  My grandkids arrived this weekend the pups are seeking their attention so I think older (middle school and up) kids are fine.  He is interacting with the rest of the dogs and after a cautious start they are playing a little and holding their ground for treats.  He seems to be essentially housetrained (but a new home should expect some accidents in he beginning) and I haven't seen any destructive behavior.

Mimi, a Yorkie
 
Mimi is a 1-2 year old female Yorkie and she weighs just about 6 pounds. She arrived in rescue after a stay at animal control, that she did not particularly enjoy and left her a little anxious and uncertain. She has settled in nicely to her foster home, and her foster mom says she would love to introduce herself to you: Hi! I'm Mimi! Once you get past my cuteness (yes I know I’m quite adorable) you need to know that I am a very shy girl until I get to know you. I need you to understand that it may take me some time to fully trust you. I will wiggle my whole body in excitement over seeing you but at the same time will shy away when you reach over to pet me. I like to play a game of catch me if you can however my foster mom says that the “catch” me if you can part scares me so it’s best to just sit down and call my name because I will lose and come running to you. Loud noises and lots of commotion tend to make me nervous, so I would prefer a home that’s a little more on the quiet side. 
 
I do ok with the other pups in the home and love to play with them however being the diva that I am, I tend to start arguments. Also in true human form I tend to hold a grudge if the other pup starts it first. It may be best for me to be an only pup so I don’t have to share my family and toys. I would also not do so well with children as their fast movements would most likely intimidate me. Teenagers will be fine as long as they understand my personality and are willing to go slow. I love taking long walks and get very excited while on my leash which leads me to pull some so please only harness walks for me as I don’t want to hurt my trachea. I’m not 100% housetrained but will use potty pads if they are available. It is imperative that you have time, patience, understanding and are willing to work with me through my insecurities with only positive reinforcement. I will pay you back tenfold in kisses ands tons of love! Mimi is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and microchipped! She is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $325.
 
 

Gigi, a Chi/Yorkie mix
 
Gigi is a 4 year old female Chi/Yorkie mix and she weighs about 7 pounds. She arrived in rescue through no fault of her own when her previous family had major medical issues with their human child and could no longer properly care for her. She was very confused and nervous at first, but is settling in to foster care. Her foster mom says, "Gigi came into foster very shy and a little scared. At first, she didn’t want me to pick her up and she wouldn’t eat much. She gradually realized that nothing bad was going to happen to her and that foster life is pretty good! She now asks to be picked up and is eating better, although she is a little picky.
 
Gigi enjoys spending time in the back yard with me so a fenced in yard would be ideal for her. She gets along with the other dogs and cats, although she will chase a cat occasionally. She wouldn’t hurt it but a timid cat might not appreciate it. Gigi isn’t a big talker, however she will alert you if she hears something or when she gets excited about going out in the yard. She loves to sleep in bed with me and give kisses as well! She is a sweet, happy little girl! I think she will probably be a little nervous meeting new people but with love and patience will be a very nice companion for the family who adopts her!" Gigi 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.
 
 

Harris, a Yorkie
 
Hello, hello, hello! My name is Harris and I want to tell you a few things about myself and what I’m looking for in my new potential family. I am a 3 or 4 year old Yorkie boy and I weigh just about 6 pounds. I somehow wound up at the animal shelter, and boy was I scared! I wasn't exactly on my best behavior, so I wound up in rescue at a foster home, which has been ah-mazing, but I would really like a family to call my own. Now, for what I want in a new home - First and foremost TOYS! Yes I love toys, in fact my foster parents tease me and say I’m obsessed with them. I carry them everywhere I go even to the big human bed so we can fall asleep together. So my new home must have an overflow of toys for me to chose from.  Sometimes when I’m really into playing I will try to entice you to a game of tug of war ... don’t oblige me! I can get a little over stimulated by this. It’s mostly play but I can be a bit growly when we play this game. For this reason I wouldn’t do well with younger children, however teenagers would be fine.  I get along really well with other dogs my size however bigger dogs tend to make me nervous so I will bark at them constantly to show them how tuff I am. 
 
At animal control I was a bit nippy with everyone (I mean can you blame me?) however I have been a total sweetheart in my foster home and have enjoyed meeting new people. I walk great on a harness/leash so going for walks would be great. I am not 100% housetrained however my foster mom says I am super smart and treat motivated so with time, patiences, and positive training I should have it down in no time, I'm working hard on it!  I love my humans so much that I want to be with you 24/7 and have some separation anxiety issues. I will prove this to you by jumping baby gates or whatever obstacle you have placed in my way. Oh and I’m fast so don’t think you will get away from me (unless you place me behind a closed door). I’m sure in due time that will go away but for now please bear with me.  Annnd I must warn you I have another characteristic habit .... I like to get on your kitchen table with a toy of course and do some yoga stretches or just take a nice long nap! If you are up for my silly antics and ready to play fetch with me 24/7 then please let’s meet ? Harris 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.
 
 

Carolyn and Vincent, Labradoodles
 
Meet Carolyn and Vincent! Carolyn is a cream, 2 year old, female Labradoodle and she weighs about 60 pounds. Vincent is a handsome male 2 year old chocolate Labradoodle, and he weighs about 60 pounds as well. Carolyn and Vincent arrived in rescue after being left at animal control when their previous family couldn't care for them anymore. Carolyn had pyometra, but that was resolved with her spay surgery and a course of antibiotics, and Vincent had skin issues that have been treated and are resolving. Carolyn and Vincent are looking for a forever home that will adopt them both, please do not ask about separating them, thank you. Their foster dad says, "Vincent is a sweet loving boy that loves to please you and just loved to be cuddled. He’s playful and friendly to everyone he meets. He loves to go for walks but does tend to pull some so will require some work. He is crate trained and pretty good on his house manners, but can still use some work. 
 
Vincent gets along very well with dogs of all sizes. He is very fond of his partner Carolyn. Vincent just wants to be loved and a family of his own. He is a good watchdog and will bark when he hears something or someone comes to the door but will stop when told. Carolyn is a very loving girl that craves attention. She is playful and fun loving. She likes to go for walks but does tend to pull but with correction she walks pretty nice. She loves walking with her partner Vincent. She is crate trained and does well with her house manners but still requires some training an patience. She is a bundle of love and loves to be loved. Carolyn and Vincent will be a great addition to a very lucky family!" Carolyn and Vincent are spayed and neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, heartworm negative and have had their teeth cleaned. They are fostered in the Orlando area, and their combined adoption donation is $750.
