Cooper, a ShihTzu/Terrier/Poodle mix
 
Meet Cooper! Cooper is a 9 week old male Shih Tzu/Terrier/Poodle mix of adorableness. He weighs about 7 pounds and is still a growing boy. He could be over 20 pounds full grown, we are not sure just how big he will get, but we want his new family to be prepared for whatever size he may be. Cooper arrived in rescue after being picked up by animal services and he was too young and too small to be at the shelter. He has been raised in a loving foster home and is ready to start life off with a forever family to call his own. 
 
 
Cooper is all puppy and will need a family up for all the things that go along with that like housetraining, leash training, continued socialization and learning what to chew and not chew. Cooper has a lot of energy and would do best in an active home.His foster dad says he would like to introduce himself: Hi, my name's Cooper!  I’m a very sweet and friendly little boy and I love to cuddle.  My foster dad says I’m very curious and brave but that’s just cuz I ain’t afraid of nuttin!  I’m a typical little boy….I love to play with other dogs and toys, run and take naps.  Treats are awesome and we can definitely be friends if you give me some of those.  I sleep well through the night and I’m doing really well on housetraining, but I am still a puppy so an occasional accident could happen.  I’m currently working on crate training….it’s kind of nice to have my own space to relax and sleep after a long day.  So if you are looking for a loyal and loving best friend, then you should definitely pick me! Cooper 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 $475.

Meet Blake! Blake is a 4 month old male Labradoodle and he weighs about 18 pounds.

He’s a quiet boy that loves to play with toys and explore the fenced in yard while we are outside.

 
Blake is crate trained and working on walking on a leash and housetraining. If you watch his body language he lets you know he wants outside. I generally ask every couple of hours if he wants to go out. He sleeps the night through in his crate without an accident. He’s ready to go out first thing when getting out of his crate. He gets along with dogs of all sizes and ages, my older dogs let him know they don’t want to play. Blake is a super sweet loving boy! He’s a puppy so you know he needs training and guidance. Blake has not been around cats but is fine with other dogs he meets, he just wants to be loved and have a family of his own."

Bentley, a Shih Tzu/Terrier mix
 
Say Hi to Bentley! Bentley is a 7 year old, male Shih Tzu/Terrier mix and he weighs about 15 pounds.  He arrived in rescue when his family could no longer care for him. He has settled into foster care nicely, but is ready to find a forever home to call his own. His foster mom says, "Bentley loves toys, loves to snuggle in a chair next to his special person and is a great companion! He is an amazing walker on a leash so if you are looking for a walking buddy he is your guy! His only issue is that he is a bit of an ESCAPE ARTIST! You MUST watch doors and a securely fenced yard is a must for him.
 
He never tries to run off, but he thinks it is a game to get out of the fence. Bentley plays well with dogs his own size and is great with older children.  Bentley will  sleep all night with you on your bed and will get up when you get up.  He is housetrained to go outside. Bentley is a really great little pup!" Bentley is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned.

Teeny, a Pomeranian/Shih Tzu mix
 
Meet Teeny! Teeny is a 5-6 year old female Pomeranian/Shih Tzu mix and she weighs about 6 pounds, She arrived in rescue when her previous family was moving and could not take her. She has settled into foster care nicely, but is ready for a forever family to call her own. Her foster mom says, "Teeny aka powder puff is bougie, sassy and full of personality!! This tiny thing will keep you entertained and on your toes. She knows she's adorable and will try to use her pretty looks to get what she wants (ex: your food… don’t fall for it!). Teeny dances around on her hind legs while waving her front paws around in excitement over her treats. 
 
She gets along with the other pups in the home however she tends to be a bit bossy with them so she would do best with no more than one other pup in the home. She has a lot to say when it involves new people coming in the door or bossing the other pups around. Teeny loves sleeping in the bed with her humans and getting belly rubs. She is not a fan of a crate and will protest if put in one! She is not 100% house trained (we are working on this). She believes if she has to go outside so should you (which we agree since she is so small). She walks great on a leash however due to her tiny legs her walks should be kept short.  She is not good with young children but should be ok with teens, and she easily gets underfoot so she is not well suited to senior humans either. Teeny's hair is like the softest powder puff (hence her nickname) you have ever felt.  If you are looking for a sassy girl… look no further!" Teeny 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 $300.
 
 

Bailey, a Schnauzer/Terrier mix
 
Meet Bailey! Bailey is a 7 month old female Schnazuer/Terrier mix and she weighs about 30 pounds. Bailey is still growing, and could be over 50 pounds when full grown, but we really aren't sure.  Bailey arrived in rescue when her previous owners were unable to care for her and her high energy. She has settled into foster care nicely, but is ready for a forever family to call her own that is up for all her puppy energy and antics. Her foster dad sa "Bailey is very loving and playful! She can be a little shy when she initially meets someone but very quickly warms up. She gets along with dogs of all sizes and loves to play with her canine pals. She has not been around cats or children but I’m sure she’d do fine with older kiddos. Bailey is crate trained and sleeps in her crate all night. She likes going for walks but needs more training on the leash.
 
She is doing well with her housetraining but will need continued training.She is always ready to go out if you ask. This sweet girl has a beautiful face and coat. She is black but has beautiful silver highlights. She is a puppy so will require training and extra care. She is a beauty that will be a great addition to any family." Bailey is spayed, up to date on vaccines, on flea and heartworm prevention and microchipped. She is fostered in the Orlando area and her adoption donation is $325.
 
 

Rowan, a Chihuahua mix
 
Meet Rowan! Rowan is a 10 year old male Chihuahua mix and he weigh about 8 pounds. He arrived at animal services after being out on his own for quite a bit, very dehydrated and covered in fleas. He came into rescue to get the care he needed. He has received medical care and lots of TLC and is doing great and ready to find a forever family to call his own! His foster mom says, "Rowan is a handsome boy who loves everyone! He truly is such a sweet, loving boy. He loves belly rubs, cuddles and sleeping in his human's bed (sometimes under the covers with you). 
 
He is a bit lazy in the morning and prefers to stay in bed until you force him out. Rowan gets along well with the other pups in the home but so far hasn’t had any interest in toys. When being super playful he will start doing zoomies all over the house and try to get the other pups engaged in playtime. Rowan walks great on a leash but be forewarned he takes his sweet time while on walks and likes to sniff and explore everything. He is not 100% house trained (work in progress). He is very quiet and only barks when the other pups do. Rowan is a super easy going little man and would make a great addition to your family!" Rowan 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 $225.
 
 

Zane, a Goldendoodle
 
Meet Zane! Zane is a 3 1/2 month old male Goldendoodle and he weighs about 20 pounds. He is still a young puppy and growing, and could be over 50 pounds when full grown, but we can't be sure. We want his new family to be prepared for a large dog and all that comes along with that. Zane is alllllll puppy and needs a family that is up for that. He is very bouncy and would not do well with small kiddos. He is still learning housetraining, leash walking and what to chew on, as well as his overall social skills. His foster mom says, "Zane is a friendly and energetic guy!  He loves playing chase or wrestling with the other puppies.  He is very smart and always finds a way to get into the puppy pen to play with the smaller puppies although he cannot always find a way to get out. 
 
 Zane is affectionate and likes to give kisses and will fit himself into your lap to get lots of love and scrubs.  He is housetrained when taken out on a schedule every couple of hours and will use a piddle pad whenever he cannot get outside.  He is beginning to walk on a leash but is not a big fan yet.  Zane rarely barks even when the other dogs are barking.  He is a little goofy and very sweet boy who would be a wonderful addition to a lucky family!" Zane 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.
 
 

Buella, a Yorkie mix
 
Meet Buella! Buella is a 1 year old female Yorkie mix and she weighs about 11 pounds. She arrived in rescue when her senior owners found out a puppy was just too much energy for them. She has settled into foster care nicely and is ready to find an active forever family to call her own!  Her foster mom says, "She is the sweetest! Buella is full of energy and loves to run and chase tennis balls in the back yard. 
 
Her other favorite past time is wrestling with her foster brother. Her toys of choice are small plush ones with a squeaker. As much as she loves to run and play, if you hold her on her back and rub her belly she will fall fast asleep. She is housetrained on a schedule. She sleeps in her crate at night and if she need to go potty she will let you know. Buella is still working on her leash walking and her manners when it comes to meeting new people and dogs for the first time.  She has been around well behaved children with dog knowledge over the age of 11 and did great!" Buella 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 $375.
 
 

Milo, a Cavashon
 
Meet Milo! Milo is a 6 year old male Cavashon and he weighs about 10 pounds.  He arrived in rescue when his previous family could no longer care for him, after they rescued him from an abusive situation. His foster mom says, "Milo is a lush, that is the best word to describe him as he is allll about the love. He will melt into your shoulder when you snuggle him and he loves a good belly rub. Milo arrived to us so skinny and we have been working on putting a little weight on him, but he still has a pound or two to go. Milo is a great eater though and enjoys his food, so we make sure to feed him separately for now. Milo wants to be with you and while he is crate trained, he will bark in his crate if he can hear you, so shared walls would not be ideal for him. 
 
He is housetrained on a schedule, although there were a few accidents as he settled in and learned the routines here, which is to be expected. He hasn’t been around cats (we don’t have any).  Milo is a super sweet cuddle bug, who wants you all to himself.  He does not like younger dogs, getting near him or taking any of his cuddle time.  He would do best in a house with no other dogs.  With all that sweetness comes the sass of being the ultimate guard dog.  Milo will bark at anything that comes to close to the house, so no surprise deliveries from Amazon, LOL. He is getting better about this though!   He has loved older kids though and pretty much everyone else he has met as long as they will snuggle him. He really is a sweetheart!" Milo 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 $400.
 
 

JayJay, a Pomeranian
 
Meet JayJay! JayJay is 13 year old male, Pomeranian and weighs about 10 pounds. He arrived in rescue when his previous family could no longer care for him. This sweet boy settled into his foster home nicely, but he would really love a forever family to call his own. His foster mom says, "JayJay is a sweet little dude. Don’t let his age fool you! He is a spunky guy who love to play with toys and his person. JayJay also love to sit in your lap and just love you. He is full of kisses and loves his back scratches. 
 
JayJay is crate trained, housetrained, and leash trained. He LOVES car rides and is always up for an adventure. JayJay gets along with all sized dogs, but can be a barker at larger dogs. This is the perfect companion for someone who is looking for a “move in ready” little ball of love and fur!" JayJay 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 $225.
 
 

Bianca and Baxter, Bonded Chihuahuas
 
Meet Bianca and Baxter! Bianca and Baxter are and adorable pair of bonded Chihuahuas. Bianca is a 14 year old, 5 pound female and Baxter is a 10 year old, male who weighs about 10 pounds. They arrived in foster care when their previous human passed away and no one in the family would care for them. While we were told they were "about 14 and maybe 10 or so" by a family member who said "I don't really know much about them" and couldn't get us any medical history, our vets think they maybe younger, closer to 10-12, and maybe 7-9, and just in very poor shape due to neglect. They have settled into foster care nicely, but are ready to find a forever home to call their own! Their foster mom says, "Oh these babies!!! I call them my little beans. They’re the two of the best fosters I’ve ever had and the ONLY fosters my dog has ever gotten along with. I can’t say enough about how good, sweet and loving these two are, but it does take them time for them to know they can trust you.  It took Bianca three days before she would let me touch her, but now she’s a little snuggle bug! You will usually find both of them snuggled under a blanket. 
 
They like going in their pen where they feel safe, but prefer to snuggle under the blankets with you. We’re working on our social skills especially around big dogs and strangers on our walks. They love walks! Recommend keeping them in another room and always on a leash around strangers and other dogs. They think they’re big dogs and don’t know their boundaries against bigger dogs. They got along with my little dogs from the start.  Bianca has a luxating patella, but it sure doesn’t keep her down! Like all older ladies with bad knees, she gets a little stiff when getting up after sleeping, but she loves to run through the grass! She also has a grade 3 heart murmur and an abdominal hernia that will need to be monitored, but aren’t a major concern. Also, Baxter coughs when he gets really excited.  They won’t tolerate small children and growled at my cat. My cat knew to just keep away so that’s all I saw of their interaction." Bianca and Baxter are spayed and neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and have had their teeth cleaned! They are fostered in the Orlando area and their combined adoption donation is $200.
 
 

Billy, a Pomeranian/Yorkie/Poodle mix
 
Meet Billy! Billy is a 4 month old, male, Pomeranian/Yorkie/Poodle mix and he weighs about 9 pounds. He could be up to 20 pounds full grown, but we can't be sure. Billy arrived in rescue when his previous family could no longer care for him. He has settled into foster care nicely, but would love a forever family to call his own. His foster mom says, "Billy is all puppy and full of spit and vinegar! He loves to play, cuddle, play, and then cuddle! He is still learning his manners, so he would be better in a home with no small children, as everything is a chew toy! As long as he has no soft surfaces, ie rugs, area rugs, Billy is housetrained on a schedule. He is crate trained and walks well on a leash. Billy LOVES toys and playing fetch. 
 
He can be loud though, and does bark when he is all alone, so no shared walls for him (this means no apartments/condos/townhomes). He loves being with you and traveling, but sometimes gets car sick on the way. Billy loves all dogs and people. He is a ball of energy and needs stimulation from his new family. He is still learning , but is eager to have boundaries. He will need regular grooming, and does very well with it. Billy will be a great addition to your home!" Billy 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.
 
 

Beignet, a Chihuahua
 
Meet Beignet! Beignet is a 7-9 year old male Chihuahua and he weighs about 6 pounds. He arrived in rescue after winding up at the shelter and no one came for him. He was very scared there, but has settled into foster care nicely and is ready to find a forever home to call his own!  His foster mom says, "This little, happy man loves to lounge on the couch with you and sleep in the humans' bed. He is not a fan of the crate. He gets along well with other dogs but would be fine as only pup as long as his human was home for the most of the day. 
 
He will whine when left alone for long periods of time. He hasn’t played much with the pups in our home or toys. His tail is always wagging and he is a very happy boy. He has the cutest “I’m happy” walk, it’ll put a smile on your face! He’s always ready for treats/food and will tell you all about it while getting them ready, in a very cute soprano tone. He loves exploring the yard with you. Although he is not 100% housetrained, we are working on it and he’s getting better.  Beignet walks well on a leash but be forewarned… he is not trying to enter a 5k race and come in at first place.  He is more of a take a short leisurely stroll at the pace of a turtle guy. Whether prancing around or “ singing” to you, he is sure to make a family happy!" Beignet 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.
 
 

Timmy, a Yorkie
 

Hi Friends! I’m Timmy and welcome to my TimmyTalk!

Hello again Friends! I am very excited to join you for another TimmyTalk and this will be one of my favorites because it’s all about ME! That’s right, this is my TimmyTalk where I begin my search for my forever family! I have some VERY specific requirements and there will be NO exceptions. I am a very special little pup with special needs. I will be honest upfront: If you submit an application for me and do not meet the qualifications because you did not pay full attention to my TimmyTalk, it will be ignored. I know I am going to be a very popular pup, obviously, and the humans here already have their hands full with me and the other pups so they do not have the extra time to teach my friends out there reading comprehension. All my friends are super smart, so certainly you got this. By now all of you, my friends, should know me. I’m Timmy! I am a 1 year old Yorkie. I identify as a neutered male and I weigh about 6 pounds, depending on the time of day and if the humans have properly served my meals. When I arrived here in rescue, I was very sick. It took a lot of testing a great medical team, but the amazing team at UF sorted out that I had a rare type of liver shunt and some extra veins connecting to it. It took almost 6 months of special medications, special diets and a LOT of me training the humans in order to get me healthy enough for my liver shunt surgery. My surgery was a success and I am feeling AMAZING! I now get to live like a normal puppy and do all the fun puppy things that I couldn’t before. However, I do have a special diet (just a certain kibble, non prescription) that I do well on and will need to stay on. I can’t have ANY human food (I have filed grievances with the doctors but they say it could kill me and I kinda like living so….) and my treats must be strictly regulated. For a lot of my life, the food I ate had to be strictly measured as well as what it became when I was done with it in order to make sure my liver was doing OK.  

 
Because of all of this, my housetraining is a work in progress. I do really well with a consistent schedule, but any variations and welp, it throws me off. I am trying hard, but I will need my humans to try hard too and be very patient with me. NO negative reinforcement! I don’t like it and I won’t stand for it and I will be VERY vocal about it.  Speaking about vocal, I do like to talk. I mean, I give TimmyTalks regularly, so a home with no shared walls is a must. I don’t need the neighbors getting all upset if I need to have a talk at 2pm and they are on a WiFi zoom or trying to watch General Hospital.  I have been told by the humans here that I need to learn this whole “leash” thing, but I find it insulting and I am not giving in so easy to them. I may come around to it, but you are definitely going to have to be patient with me and work with me on this. Also, please know I do NOT enjoy tiny humans and do not want them in my forever home. I also do not wish to be treated like a tiny human with clothes put on me, I do not find it cute. I do however enjoy regular grooming by a professional. I would ideally like an active family - maybe with some older young humans (teenagers I believe they are called?), but where I am the only furkid. I know the other pups here and I enjoy visiting with them, but I am just not sure yet how I feel about sharing a human forever. I can not guarantee I will ever be up for that. As I previously let you know, I am neutered, all my vaccines are current, I am heartworm negative and microchipped. I do, however, have a follow up check this fall at the 1 year checkpoint from my surgery, and it MUST be done at UF. It will be an entire day of you there with me, on a weekday, and the estimate is $1200-$1500 for all my tests. My new family will be responsible for this, so please take this into careful consideration before you apply for me. I already have a lawyer retained should you fail to follow through on this so that I can go back to the humans who will make sure I am cared for. They have worked really hard to keep me alive and get me healthy. Honestly, if my forever family had previous experience with liver shunts, that would be incredible, but as long as you are understanding of all my requirements, and want to love me forever, I can work with that. My TimmyTalks are pretty informative and I am happy to teach you! I am fostered in the Orlando area and my adoption donation is $500.
 
 

Kiro and Shiru, Bonded Schnoodle "Brothers"
 
Meet Kiro and Shiru! Kiro is a 12-year-old, silver, male Schnoodle and he weighs about 15 pounds and Shiru is a 6-year-old, white, male Schnoodle and he weighs about 19 pounds. This bonded pair of "brothers" arrived in rescue when their family moved and could not keep them with them. They have settled into foster care but would love a forever home to call their own! Their foster dad says, "Kiro and Shiru are two lovable schnoodles that are inseparable! They constantly cuddle together in their crate. Shiro is way more outgoing and vocal. Kiro is way more laid back and tends to shake when nervous but is oh so sweet. Both crave attention and love to cuddle with you. They like to go for walks but tend to pull at times, so they need a little correction. Both enjoy going in the car and are pretty good. They get along with dogs of all sizes but prefer dogs around their own size. They have not been around cats so I have no idea how they would react. 
 
They both are treat motivated and want to please. They do well with housetraining, if you ask if they want to go out, and keep them on a consistent schedule. They will go and do their business when on a walk and when out wandering in a fenced yard with you.  These boys really love each other and want to stay together. They would do best in a quiet household where they are the center of attention. So, if you’re looking for companionship and love, these guys are for you!" Kiro and Shiru are neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and have had their teeth cleaned! Both are total loves and so badly want their own home together. There are no better companions than they are.Kiro and Shiru are neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and have had their teeth cleaned! They are fostered in the Orlando area and their combined adoption donation is $400.
 
 

Arya, a Chihuahua mix
 
Meet Arya! Arya is a 5 year old, female, Chihuahua mix and she weighs about 11 pounds. She arrived in rescue when her previous family could no longer care for her.  Her foster mom says, "Arya is the definition of a Velcro dog. If you sit down, she will be in your lap. She starts off very skittish and you will need patience with her. It might take some time before she completely warms up to you. Arya sometimes resource guards. She mainly protects her toys, but sometimes food and treats too. If you are patient with Arya, you can get her to give up whatever she is guarding. Due to her guarding, she needs a house with no small kids living there or visiting. She doesn't do well with a kennel/crate and must be allowed in bed. She usually goes under the covers as soon as it’s time for bed. 
 
Arya has shown improvement, but she’s still not the best on walks. She needs a harness and some coaxing. Arya is potty pad trained, but does still need daily walks for fresh air and exercise. She must have a home without shared walls as she will let you know if there is a sound, or animal, or person nearby. She thinks my hedgehog is a snack, so she would do well in a house without small pets or cats. Arya plays with another dog her size, but she would prefer to be an only dog. She sometimes plays too rough and can be overly jealous if another dog is getting attention." Arya is spayed, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, heartworm negative, microchipped and has had her teeth cleaned! She is fostered in the Orlando area and her adoption donation is $300.

Meet Romeo! Romeo is an 8 year old male Yorkie and he weighs about 14 pounds. He arrived in rescue after his previous human passed away and no one in their family would step up to take him in. Romeo has settled into foster care nicely, but would really like a forever home to call his own. Romeo’s foster mother says, "This sweet little boy loves to play fetch with toys and brings them back to you over and over again!  He loves to play with grownups and older children. He isn't a lap dog but enjoys cuddling. Romeo has never met a stranger. He loves to go on walks and is housetrained.  He is a “marker” when first brought into a home (belly bands will be needed the first few days), but after a couple of days he was no longer marking.  Romeo kicks with front and back legs after he potties or “marks” during a walk.  It’s funny to watch and it always makes me laugh, I call the “RomeyDance”. He does not like cats and will want to chase squirrels if he sees one when on a walk. He has a high prey drive, so NO cats or small animals in the house. He gets along well with other dogs, but not when food or treats are involved, so it’s better if he’s an only dog in the home. 
 
He is not food/treat aggressive with people, only other dogs and prefers to hide his treats rather than eat them right away. He sounds like a much bigger dog when he barks, which is usually when he sees someone coming to visit or hears knocking at the door.  Otherwise, he’s not much of barker. This little one ear up, one ear down pup will steal your heart! Romeo will be shy at first, but after a few days he will open up and show more of his personality.  He's always ready to play though, and greets company at the door with a toy for them to throw for him. Romeo loves baths, and like most dogs, is really playful afterwards.  He sometimes sleeps with me, and sometimes prefers to sleep on his bed in the living room or on the couch.  He will go into his crate occasionally, but since he is house trained, I seldom close the door.  He does likes to be in the same room I am in." Romeo 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 $250.
 
 

Ty, a Pomeranian
 
Meet Ty! Ty is a male, 9 year old, Pomeranian and he weighs about 9 pounds. He arrived in rescue when his previous family could no longer care for him. He has settled in nicely, but is ready for a forever family to call his own! His foster mom says, "He is a quirky, old soul which earned him the nickname “Papa Pom”.  He prefers a quieter house so he can enjoy his frequent naps.  Ty is slower to trust but once he feels secure, he will roll over for belly rubs and prancing dance to greet you.  He walks well short distances on a harness/leash but can be startled by loud noises.  He is housetrained and enjoys exploring the fenced yard with us.  
 
He is good with other dogs and tolerates the foster cats but would do great in a house as the only pup. This sassy guy will need typical Pom grooming daily for his creamy coat. He is crate trained and prefers to sleep in his own bed burrowed under small blanket. Ty has a spirited loud bark and takes his job as guard dog seriously with Amazon deliveries and visitors so he would do better in home without shared walls (meaning no apartments or townhomes).  He struggles with barking and whining when left alone but that is slowly getting better. He loves car rides in his car seat.  Ty is not a velcro dog yet but he has plenty of love to give to the right person." Ty 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 $250.
 
 

Amaya, a Yorkie
 
Meet Amaya! Amaya is a sweet little 5 pound, 15-ish year old female Yorkie. She arrived at animal services in rough shape, with no family coming to claim her. She arrived at FLDR and has been showered with love and medical care from her foster mom and is thriving! Amaya has a mild heart murmur and takes daily medication for it, but does great! She is ready to find a forever family to call her own. Her foster mom says, "Amaya is a quiet, dignified older lady who would be happy to have a quiet, loving home. She probably needs a home without young children as she is very small and could be knocked over easily. She is ok with the other dogs in the house (she will tell them off if they get too friendly though) but would be just as happy to be a pampered, only Princess! 
 
She can be on the chatty side sometimes so maybe shouldn't be in a home with shared walls although her voice isn't especially loud. She will use potty pads and goes outside but still has the occasional accident, possibly due to her age. Amaya loves to lie in the grass enjoying the warm sunshine! She also likes to be with her person so will sometimes attempt to follow them out the door." Amaya 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 $150.
 
 

Midge, a Shih Tzu
 
Meet Midge! Midge is an 8 year old female Shih Tzu and she weighs about 5 pounds. She arrived in rescue when her previous family could no longer care for her after she broke her leg. She had corrective surgery and had the pin removed and has healed nicely. Midge is ready for a forever family to call her own! Her foster mom says, "Talk about personality plus!  There is a lot of sass in this 5 pound cutie!  Midge is smart, inquisitive and I think has a bit of mountain goat in her as she will climb to get to anything that intrigues her. She gets along well with my other dogs but hates the cat and will chase her at every opportunity.  
 
She is housetrained on a schedule but also very good at using a puppy pad. She is not a fan of being held for too long but will shower you with kisses while sitting on the couch or snuggling in bed. She is extremely fast and wants to be wherever you are so she can get underfoot, because of this I wouldn’t recommend a home with small children or the elderly. Midge likes a lot of attention so a home where she only has one fur sibling or is an only dog would be ideal." Midge 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 $350.
 
 

Brulee, a Chihuahua mix
 
Meet Brûlée! Brûlée is a 4 year old female Chihuahua mix and she weighs about 9 pounds. She arrived in rescue after winding up at animal services, heartworm positive, scared and with no one coming to claim her. She has been treated for heart worms and is doing great and her foster mom says she would love to tell you all about herself:Hi my name is Brûlée and I would love to tell you a little bit about myself. I was found running the streets. Someone caught me then turned me into animal control. My previous owners never came for me. While there I learned I was heartworm positive (I’m not 100% sure what this means but it didn’t sound good) and I desperately needed a rescue to save me. Thankfully FLDR swooped in to save me just in time! I have already gone through my treatment and am doing great! It does take me some time to settle in and warm up to new people but once I do, I trust you with my whole heart (little secret: my foster mom used chicken nuggets and it worked like a champ! I mean who can resist a nugget right?) My foster parents have other pups here and although I don’t mind them being here I don’t play with them. I tend to stay to myself (or in my fosters mamas lap). 
 
To be honest,  if I had it my way I would be the only queen in the home or at the very most one other pup in the home as long as they are my size. Once I’m comfortable I enjoy sleeping in the bed cuddled up next to you under the covers. I take my job seriously when it comes to protecting you from the vacuum cleaner so you might need to put me in another room while using it. Also when I’m excited I love to stand on my hind legs and do a little dancing for you (maybe we could have a dance Party? Make some cute TikTok videos?) I’m not 100% house trained but I’m willing to work hard on this with some food motivation and happy praises. I do walk on a harness/leash however due to being nervous, in the beginning it may be best if I have a secure fenced in yard. If you are willing to take it slow and have some patience with me while I work through my nervousness with my new surroundings I promise you we will be the best of friends and I will love you unconditionally!! Brulee is spayed, up to date on vaccines, on flea and heartworm prevention, microchipped and has had her teeth cleaned! She is fostered in the Orlando area and her adoption donation is $250.
