Patti, a Yorkie/Pomeranian mix
Patti is an 11 month old female Yorkie/Pomeranian mix and she weighs about 7.5 pounds.  She really shouldn't get much bigger and should stay under 10 pounds full grown. Patti arrived in rescue with her littermates when her family realized they could not properly take care of them. Patti's littermates have all found homes, but Patti had big dreams and went on to star in Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet! She is ready to find a family to call her own though, but she does have some special "requests". Her foster mom says, "She is a WONDERFUL girl, just, uhm, a bit of a princess with some quirks that are easily lovable, she just needs the right home to accommodate them. I have never met a dog that wants to be a "purse dog" more than Patti! She LOVES to go everywhere with you and will even ride in the puppy version of a strap-on baby carrier and she loves it! She loves being with her humans and would prefer human cuddle time to puppy play for sure. She does play nicely with the other dogs though. She is a very smart girl and is pad trained, and working on her housetraining, but she still hates the leash. 
She wants nothing, and I mean nothing, to do with a leash - and doesn't understand why she should walk for you on one, you should carry her. However, a fenced yard is one of her favorite places to run out her zoomies and go potty on her own. A fenced yard is non-negotiable, as she will not potty on a leash, so absolutely no apartments, as a dog park simply won't work.  However, she will also use pads inside if/when needed. Truthfully, she is beyond adorable. She even stands on her hind paws and "begs", and dances, and if you stop petting her, she will gently pop you in the face with her paw as a mini "love punch" to remind you she needs ALL the pets! I have truly never met a dog that wanted to be a "purse puppy" more than she does. She is great with older kids, plays nicely with other dogs (her own size, bigger dogs scare her), although she will annoy senior pups, and travels well. She would be fine as an only pup, if she can go most places with you or you are home a lot. She is crate trained, but will bark if left all alone by herself. She does settle, but shared walls would not be ideal while she works though this. She doesn't bark if she has another young, playful fur friend though, but has no interest in being part of a pack, so she will do best with one fur-sibling or as an only pup. She knows her name, she is very eager to please her humans, and wicked smart. She looks like a little fox and can easily steal your heart! Please know she absolutely does shed and is in no way hypo-allergenic - everyone with allergies who has encountered her has reacted." Patti 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 $450.

Perla, a Yoorkie/Terrier mix
Perla is a 6 year old female Terrier/Schnauzer mix with a grey/beige brindle coat and she weighs about 15 pounds.  She came to rescue as part of a local hoarding case and she and her group were all socially delayed and very scared of humans.  Perla has come a long way but needs a home that will be patient and gentle as she adjusts to her new surroundings.  Her foster mom says, “When Perla first came to us, she was very wary of humans and fearful of men.  Over time she has embraced the people she lives with and has taken huge strides towards becoming an affectionate pet.  The great things about Perla is that she is very dog social, likes cats, and is a very gentle soul.  She wouldn’t dream of acting out and has not a single aggressive bone in her body, even when fearful.  
She is calm in the house with short bursts of running about and enjoys a romp or lizard expedition in the back yard with other dogs.  Perla is housetrained here, though might have a few accidents from the uncertainty of a new home.  She walks great on a leash, but she is wary of close traffic and large dogs approaching.  She walks with a dog-walking group but likes to follow.  Crating is not recommended for her and she doesn’t really need it, but does fine in a gated room.  She sleeps quietly all night in a dog bed in the bedroom. Perla would be happiest in a home with another dog to help her build confidence, so another fur friend is required, for certain, and humans who are home more often that not, at least initially.  Frequent outings are a must and a yard would be preferable.  Perla is ready to be a calm and mellow companion with a family who will be patient with her as she adjusts to her new surroundings. " Perla is spayed, heartworm negative, up to date on her vaccines, has had her teeth cleaned and is microchipped. She is fostered in Orlando and her adoption donation is $275.

Dolce, a Pomeranian and Pink, a Chihuahua
Dolce is a black, female Pomeranian and she is 13 years old and weighs 10 pounds.  Her bonded companion, Pink is a female Chihuahua and she is 13 years old and weighs 6 pounds. These sweet girls are looking for a family to love both of them!  Their foster mom says, "Dolce and Pink are tiny, sweet, and full of personality. They love each other, however tend to grumble like an old married couple.  They do not seem to need to sleep together, but in all other ways they are inseparable. They are becoming more and more playful as they feel at home. They only play in short bursts, but they do love to play!  Both of them can have short episodes of barking excitedly, however they mostly love to be couch potatoes with you. Pink loves to be close to you or cuddled up with you, and will give you tender kisses every once in awhile. Dolce can be very excited and takes a bit to calm down. She prefers to sleep on our leather couch, probably because it feels cooler. They appear to have never seen a cat before, however they have adjusted very well to our kitty.  They get along well with all of the dogs in our house, although Dolce is still learning she does not have to protect anyone from dogs that are moving about.  
Both of them are trained and faithfully use puppy pads indoors and both of them love to go outside to explore and go potty as well. They can be a bit vocal in the yard with the neighborhood dogs so we do limit their time outside, which is also fine with them. They behave nicely in an Xpen as well, although I am certain they would prefer to sleep in the big human bed. They would do best in a home where they are the only dogs or with dogs that are low energy and their size. They are both very tiny so small children would probably not be the best situation for them, although they are very good with older children. Because they are trained to use the puppy pads, they would be fine loose in a safe environment without being crated as well." Dolce and Pink are both spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative have had their teeth cleaned and are microchipped! They are fostered in the Orlando area, and their adoption donation is $300 (total).

Otis, a Yorkie/Terrier mix

Meet Otis! Otis is a 9 year old, male Yorkie/Terrier mix and he weighs about 12 pounds. He arrived in rescue as part of a hoarding case and has settled into pet life and is learning that humans can be gentle and kind. His foster dad says, "Otis is very shy when meeting new people but quickly warms up. When given the time and space needed, he will become your best friend. Otis loves to play with toys and can easily amuse himself. When he’s sure you’re ok, he loves to get belly rubs and give lots and lots of kisses. His tail wags nonstop as soon as he feels safe. Otis loves to play with other dogs in our home so another four legged friend around would be best. He loves to wonder the fenced back yard but can be a bit of an escape artist!


He’s not leashed/harness trained and will need someone who is willing to be patient and work with him on this and MUST have fenced in yard. Otis is doing well with his housetraining as long as he can get outside every few hours. He is crate trained and goes into his crate when receiving a treat. Otis is very treat motivated and wants to please. He’s a sweet older guy with lots of love to give and loves to cuddle. Otis will be a great companion and family member." He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned. Otis is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $250.


Princeton, a Schnoodle
Princeton is a 9 year old male Schnoodle and he weighs about 27 pounds. He arrived in foster care after arriving at animal control after he didn't appreciate being pulled or thrown out of a truck.  His foster mom says, "Princeton arrived in foster care confused and stressed. He was very clingy, followed me everywhere, and  jumped on me when I arrived home. Surprisingly he did not try to get on the bed with me but waited until he was invited up. Once reassured that I was close by, he slept on the floor next to the bed. He has since gained confidence and feels more secure; however, he still needs to be as close as possible. He doesn’t do well with small dogs (under 10 lbs or so), as he tries too hard to play with them and herd them around the yard. The little pups don’t care for his annoying behavior, although it is never harmful. 
He seems to be housebroken on a schedule. Because I have a fenced yard, I don't use a leash with him. However, when I open the door to leave the house, he gets very excited and tries to bolt to follow me out. I think he has been leash walked and a refresher course with a harness will strengthen those skills. Princeton will need a patient family to help him overcome his fear of abandonment. He will need an adults-only home, as he can be a little mouthy when playing or seeking a rub. Give Princeton love, security, and guidance, and he will be a wonderful addition to your family! " Princeton is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! He is fostered in the Flagler Beach area, and his adoption donation is $250. 

Mickey, a Shih Tzu mix
Mickey is an 8 year old male Shih Tzu mix and he weighs about 9 pounds. He came into our rescue as a stray from animal control.  His foster mom says, "The experience of being lost and hungry on the streets followed by a loud scary shelter made Mickey concerned about his food and safety.  After a month in his foster home, Mickey has settled down and he is starting to play with toys and looking for recreation play time. Upon his arrival in foster care, Mickey was also shy with new people coming into his house and worried about them in his new environment. Working with him to have only good experiences with unfamiliar people has helped him be less scared. He will need a home where patient introductions are standard procedure.  He is very playful with his canine fur companions plus a 5 month old kitten, who has become his fast and furious playmate. He has a fenced in yard and loves to run laps just for the heck of it. 
He is an avid gardener and snacks on lettuce, beans and has a grape tomato fetish.  Mickey is excellent on leash or harness, housetrained and willingly goes in his crate for a treat. Stairs or an elevator are no problem and he takes both without a second thought.  He is a very happy loving boy and wants to be near his human especially if there is a bed or sofa involved. He will curl up next to you and just chill. If you are in the kitchen he will be your constant sidekick. Food and an occasional treat are what he is most excited about, this guy is motivated by food!  He is great on car rides and loves to travel.  Because of his initial fear around new people, a home with no small children would be best and he would love one or more furry friends cat or dog." Mickey 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.

Sanya, a Yorkie
Sanya is a beautiful little 10 year old, 4 pound Yorkie girl.  This little girl was surrendered from a breeder to rescue and arrived in rough shape. She is settling into foster care well, but she is still very shy and will need a family that will give her time and patience for her to learn to trust. Her foster mom says, "Sanya is a precious little girl. She is a bit skittish and doesn’t like to be "hugged". Her favorite thing is to cuddle in her little bed and have her ears rubbed.  Her ideal home will be with a person or couple who can spend quality time with her. Unfortunately, Sanya’s teeth have not been well taken care of and they had to be removed but that doesn’t stop her from eating like a little piggy.  
She goes around in circles when she is happy or excited, such as us returning home or meal time. She needs a calm and loving home with no children.  Sanya is not fully housetrained but she will generally do her business outside as long as she gets outside a few times per day.  She is also trained to use her pee pads when her foster mom is at work. This little princess is patiently waiting for the right person to see her and who wants to love her forever and always!" Sanya is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and microchipped. is fostered in the Orlando area, and her adoption donation is $250.

Bob, a Havanese/Poodle mix
Bob is a 6 year old Havanese/Poodley mix boy and he weighs about 10 pounds.  He arrived in rescue after living life in a horrible puppy mill in rural Georgia, a mill actually listed on the HSUS Horrible 100, where over 700 dogs were being kept. He has settled into foster care and "pup life" and is learning to trust his humans, and appreciate being a pet, not property. He will need a patient and understanding home, that is willing to continue to let him grow and thrive on his own timeline. His foster mom says, "Do you have the patience and understanding to work with Bob, to show him that humans are not all bad? If so, you will be rewarded with the joyful, playful Bob.  Bob has made great strides and learning how to live in a loving household. He follows me around the house and is happy to see me in the morning and when I come home, he does his "I’m so happy you are here" dance.  I see him struggle with wanting to be petted and snuggled, but being too scared when I reach out to him. 
He now sleeps in his dog bed and doesn’t like the crate.  He loves playing with his toys and keeps himself busy, but really likes to play with other dogs and needs other dogs to help show him the rules of the house. He is not housetrained, but we are working on it, and a fenced in yard is a must.  I have recently been able to get a leash on him and take him for walks and he is doing very well, but it is a 5-10 minute ordeal to get the harness on him.  He is startled by movement, so a house with no children or multiple visitors please, while Bob is learning to be part of the household.  What you will get with Bob is the most rewarding experience of watching him come out of his protective shell.  Seeing him bound about the house like a little bunny with his tail wagging is enough to warm even the hardest of hearts!"  Bob 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.

Lambchop, a Shih Tzu mix

Lambchop is a 7-8 year old female Shih Tzu mix and she weighs about 12 pounds. Lambchop arrived in rescue after living life in a horrible puppy mill in rural Georgia, a mill actually listed on the HSUS Horrible 100, where over 700 dogs were being kept. She has settled into foster care and "pup life" and is learning to trust her humans and appreciate being a pet, not property. She will need a patient and understanding home that is willing to continue to let her grow and blossom on her own timeline. Her foster parents say, "It took a few days for Lambchop to venture out of her kennel, but when she saw my dog was getting all the attention, she decided she wanted some too. Ever since then she has been our little shadow. It took our dog to get her out of her shell, so we think she would do best with another fur sibling to let her know everything’s alright. She hasn’t met a dog she doesn’t like, but she is very scared meeting new people. Lambchop is at puppy level training as she is learning what is or is not a toy. She has really started to find a love of toys, but still freaks out when they squeak. She is also hit or miss on housetraining, but enjoys going for walks even if she doesn’t do anything. She needs to be walked in a harness, otherwise she spends most of the time biting the leash. She would probably be further in her training if she would let my husband help, but she wants nothing to do with him and won’t let him get anywhere near her.


(He is over 6 feet tall, so that might be something to do with it, but not completely sure.) She hasn’t been around children, but we think she would be ok with older kids. Smaller kids would be a problem because she’s still skittish around quick movements and sudden noises. She does like to play, so another dog with some puppy energy would be good. At bedtime, she likes to sleep on pillows or blankets near our dog. She avoids the kennel completely now, unless she’s really scared. She’s not a big barker, but can be vocal during times we leave or come back, or if she wants to play, so we don’t recommend shared walls." Lambchop 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.


Shadow, a Poodle mix

Shadow is a 6-7 year old male Poodle mix and he weighs about 17 pounds. Shadow arrived in rescue after living life in a horrible puppy mill in rural Georgia, a mill actually listed on the HSUS Horrible 100, where over 700 dogs were being kept. He has settled into foster care and "pup life" and is learning to trust his humans, and appreciate being a pet, not property. He will need a patient and understanding home, that is willing to continue to let him grow and thrive on his own timeline. His foster moms say, "Shadow came to us scared, shy, confused, and very timid. With time, and plenty of patience, he has learned to trust us. He has fit in well with our pack, he is learning how to play with his fur siblings. 


Due to his “housing” conditions, Shadow wears a belly band, does not sleep in a crate, and has a tendency to hoard his resources. We have seen a marked improvement in all aspects of his training. He is also making great progress on the leash, but still needs more training. Shadow LOVES to go on walks, sit on your lap for some snuggle time, and chew on tennis balls. Shadow will do the best in home without small children or puppies. He has not been around cats." Shadow is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, microchipped and has had his teeth cleaned! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $250.
