Tyrone, a Chihuahua mix
 

Meet Tyrone! Tyrone is a 7-8 year old, male Chihuahua mix and he weighs about 8 pounds. He arrived in rescue after his previous family could no longer care for him. He has settled into foster care nicely, but would love to find a forever home to call his own. His foster mom says, "Tyrone is a handsome sweetheart! He is such a happy pup who loves to be picked up and cuddled by anyone who has a free lap. He is good with other dogs including larger, calm dogs who respect his space.  However, he is still working on “sharing” lap space because he can snarl/growl at other pets who want to get attention too. He is housetrained and he enjoys zooming around in fenced yard.

 
He walks well on a leash and is respectful of the foster cats. He has discovered that soft, squeaky toys are fun to play with!  Tyrone is crate trained, but he will become vocal when he is ready to get out. He prefers to eat his meals with some distance from other dogs because he doesn’t want to share his food. He is treat motivated with training. He likes to sleep in a big bed but he will settle down in a dog bed if he can see his people and get a soft blanket to bury underneath." Tyrone 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.
 
 

Bingo, a Chihuahua/Terrier mix
 
Meet Bingo! Bingo is a 7 year old male Terrier/Chihuahua mix and he weighs about 7 pounds. He arrived in rescue when his previous family could no longer properly care for him. He has settled into his foster home nicely, but would love a forever family to call his own. His foster mom says, "Bingo is a sweetheart! And waiting for his Valentine! He is leash trained, housetrained and crate trained, although he prefers a nice warm bed with you to sleep in. He knows basic commands and loves a car ride!
 
 Totally a companion pup. He is good with other dogs, but can be a little possessive of “his person”. Not a fan of playful puppies, but fine with older dogs who know their manners. Bingo needs his person! Sweet and loving, especially of neck and belly rubs, he would be a great addition to a lucky home!" Bingo 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.
 
 

Coco, a Dachshund
 
Meet Coco! Coco is a 9 month old female Dachshund and she weighs about 10 pounds. She should stay under 15 pounds full grown, but we can't promise that. Coco arrived in rescue when her previous family could no longer keep her. She settled into her foster home nicely, but is ready to find a forever family to call her own! Her foster dad said she would like to introduce herself: Hi, my name is Coco.  I’m a super sweet and very friendly little girl.  I LOVE attention, playing and cuddles!  I am super playful but I also like laying around and relaxing….especially if there is a blanket!  I am not crate trained and prefer to have a little freedom to roam.  I get along great with older kids and other dogs, but I can be shy at first.  
 
I am very protective of my house and family, so you will never have to worry about someone sneaking up to the door ever again while I’m around. Treats and toys are the way to my heart, so if you are looking for a gentle, loyal and loving best friend, you should definitely pick me! Coco is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and microchipped! She is fostered in the Orlando area and her adoption donation is $450.
 
 

Pauly, a Schnauzer mix
 
Meet Pauly! Pauly is a 6-7 year old male Schnauzer mix and he weighs about 40 pounds. He is a "low rider" with short legs and is very stocky. Pauly arrived in rescue after being adopted as a puppy from animal services and winding up back there when his family could no longer care for him. He was very scared there and wary of men. He has settled into his foster home nicely though and is ready to find a forever family of his own. His foster mom says, "Pauly is a really good boy! He is sweet, friendly, well behaved and a little goofy at times.  Pauly loves to get scrubbies all over, behind his ears, on his back, under his chin, etc. He gets along well with other dogs and is very tolerant of the littler dogs that reside with him.  When a particularly grumpy dog snaps at him he just turns his head and ignores him.  Pauly gets very excited to go for walks or to go out in the backyard.  He likes to run as fast as he can from end of the yard to the other and will swerve around any obstacles he may encounter like dogs or people.  
 
He doesn’t bark much except when he hears other dogs while out in the yard.  Pauly does like to put his paws up on you when he wants attention.  Due to his size he could knock over a child or elderly person. We are working on this but when he looks at you with those big brown eyes it is hard to get mad at him.  Pauly likes to play with the other dogs although he cannot get too playful because they are much smaller than him.  He can be a loner at times and will often go off to another room by himself to take a nap or chew on a rawhide.  He is a very easy going guy who is ready to find his forever family!" Pauly 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.
 

Jimmy Kibble, a Pomsky
 
READ THIS FIRST:  All applicants for Jimmy Kibble MUST be LOCAL to the Orlando area, NO exceptions. Thank you.

Meet  Jimmy Kibble! Jimmy Kibble is a 6 month old male Pomsky and he weighs about 15 pounds. He should stay under 35 pounds full grown, but we can't promise that. Jimmy arrived in rescue after being purchased by a family who didn't realize how much energy a Pomsky would have (or how much of a voice!) and just saw cute fluff. While he is cute, and fluffy, Jimmy is allllll puppy and will need a family that is ready for that energy! His foster mom says, "Jimmy Kibble is most certainly the handsomest of boys! His good looks are only part of his charm, and he will need a family that can look past the cuteness and fluff and help him continue becoming the bestest boy. Jimmy is all puppy and plays rough - we are working on that, but he would do best in a home without dogs smaller than him or with senior dogs .He has a ton of energy and loves to play. 
 
Jimmy also likes to cuddle though and looks at you with his pretty eyes and melts your heart.  He has done well with housetraining on a schedule and will use the piddle pad when necessary.He loves toys and can often be found hanging out IN the toy basket.  Jimmy isn't a big barker, but he can be vocal when he "needs to tell you something", and his bark is more of a husky howl than a pomeranian yip.  Jimmy would do best with a family that is home a lot or another playful pup to keep him occupied as he can get into a little mischief when left by himself.  He loves to play with his foster friends and will chase them all around the back yard.  He is not walking on a leash right now (we are working on it) so he will need a fenced yard, absolutely NO apartments or townhomes with shared walls (and no, a dog park can not count as a yard). Jimmy Kibble 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 $500.
 
 

Tank, a Pomeranian
 

Meet Tank! Tank is an 11-12 year year old male Pomeranian and he weighs about 7 pounds. He arrived in rescue after being found near a
drainage ditch and no one came forward to claim him. He has settled into foster care nicely and is ready to find a forever family to callhis own! His foster mom says, "Looks aren’t everything! Yes, Tank is adorable, but he also is a very nervous dog. He also has a collapsing trachea, right now he is just on cough medicine. He needs a quiet, calm home. He would run from me when I first got him, now he speed walks away from me sometimes. He doesn’t like you being near a door when going in or out. He wants pets and love on his terms, he now barks at me to put him on the couch for pets and play time. He also barks when you are too slow fixing his meals. Leash walking is still a
work in progress. No loud parking lots for this boy. 

 

We are still working on housetraining, if kept on a schedule, he’s does pretty well, but still a bit of a marker.He is getting used to being picked up and held. Not a huge lap dog. He can sleep in his crate with no issues, but he now sleeps on a dog bed. He is afraid of thunder and will find something to hide under. When he gets in his frisky mood, he makes me laugh, sitting on the floor playing with him is the best! He enjoys his naps.  My sweet, quirky Tank is looking for someone that can meet his needs, love and spoil him, could that be you? "

Pupdate: This little boy took awhile, but he now loves playing with me and sitting on my lap. The groomer said he was one of her best clients. He makes me laugh constantly. He has come such a long way. Tank 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 $175. 

 
 

Lukas, a Labradoodle
 
Meet Lukas! Lukas is an 8 month old male Labradoodle and he weighs about 45 pounds and is still growing! Please note: He is NOT hypo-allergenic, he DOES shed. Lukas arrived in rescue when his previous family could no longer care for him. He has settled into foster care nicely, but is ready to find his forever family. His foster mom says, "Lukas is a wonderful pup with a typical puppy pattern - play hard, eat, nap, repeat.  He was hesitant when we met but that only lasted a few minutes. He may bark at new folks and new sounds, so no shared walls. Lukas loves to run in the fenced yard and play with my other dogs of similar size and energy. I don't think he's been around small dogs and cats. 
 
He is curious about them though, and we are working on appropriate interaction.He likes his soft toys and often carries them in his mouth. He is crate trained and appears to be housetraind and alerts by standing near the door. Lukas is learning to walk gently on a leash and that training should be continued with positive reinforcement. He is tall and he does like to counter-surf.  Lukas would enjoy an active family, a playful canine friend of comparable size, and a fenced yard. No small children or frail adults, as his size, energy and puppy incoordination may result in a tumble. Lukas is looking for someone to help him complete puppyhood and continue on to becoming a wonderful companion as an adult. Share your home with Lukas and he will share an abundance of love and loyalty with you - the perfect win-win!" Lukas is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and microchipped. He  is fostered in Flagler Beach and his adoption donation is $500.
 
 

Sherlock, a Labradoodle
 
Meet Sherlock! Sherlock is a 1 year old male Labradoodle and he weighs about 35 pounds. He is not done growing just yet, and could wind up over 50 pounds when he is done. Please note, Sherlock is NOT hypoallergenic, NOT allergy friendly, he does shed. Sherlock arrived in rescue after winding up at animal control as a stray, and very scared there. He settled into his foster home nicely and would love a forever home to call his own. His foster mom says he would like to introduce himself: Hi, I’m Sherlock. I took over the computer to write my bio because, let’s face it, I take over everything. My foster mom calls me an ‘excitable ball of energy’ and I love to play all day. I LOVE TOYS! They are the best and I am the best at making it look like it snows in the house, so if you don’t like snow, I’ll need some ‘tough chewer’ toys. I also love playing fetch and tug-o-war. Speaking of love, I probably already love you! I love meeting new people. I think I would like to meet some dogs too, because I try to run up to them on my walks, but my foster mom says I’m ‘too eager.’ I like to chase birds and my arch nemesis squirrels, so I probably wouldn’t like a house with small animals. My foster parents have a hedgehog and guinea pigs that I leave alone for the most part, but I do like the steal the piggies’ hay. I haven’t been around cats, so I’m not sure what I think about them. I do have this thing where I don’t realize how big or heavy I am.
 
Apparently I’m not a lap dog like I think, as my foster mom says ‘oophf’ when I climb or jump on her when she’s in the recliner. I am working on my manners as I like to jump on people when I am excited, and I pull too hard sometimes on my leash. Because of this, I wouldn’t do well in a house with small children. I would like a backyard with a fence so I can run and burn some energy. I have been known to have crazy powerful zoomies in the house. I do like to bark sometimes when I run around the house too, so I need a home with no shared walls. (I don’t want to get into trouble for being too loud.) I am almost fully housetrained on a schedule. I like to be taken out every 3-4 hours, but sometimes can have an accident as I’m still learning. I am very smart, so I know with more training I’ll be the bestest boy. I have already learned a couple of commands for treats. I will “Sit” and “Drop it.” I do have a treat demand though, when you get ice cubes for your drinks, I also get one. When all my playing and treats are done, I do sleep in a crate at night. Usually my foster parents will leave the crate open and just close the bathroom door, so I have access to water too – if you try to put a bowl in my crate, I just knock it over. Oh, but you don’t HAVE to put me in the crate if you don’t want to, I do also enjoy sneaking on the bed. Sherlock is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and microchipped. He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $500.
