Before and After

Dora, a Shih Tzu/Lhasa mix

Dora is a 6 year old Shih Tzu/Lhasa mix and she weighs about 10 pounds. She arrived in rescue when her previous family no longer could care for her, and they left her at animal control scared and alone. She was very nervous there, but has settled into foster care.  Her foster mom says, "Dora is a funny, feisty little girl.  She would be fine as an only pet and that is actually preferred for her. She is independent and does not like other dogs to get in her face. Dora meets most new folks with a smile but she is selective about which males she will trust. She seems to be housetrained on a schedule. 


I have a fenced yard so I rarely have her on a leash. She gets excited when she sees a leash, so I believe she is an experienced walker. I suggest a quick refresher course using a harness within a safe environment, such as a fenced yard, or even in the house. She does bark at new sights and sounds, so an apartment or house with shared walls would not work. Dora is quite laid back so a quiet female family would be ideal. Open your heart and your home to Dora and gain a loyal, loving companion!" Dora is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped and has had her teeth cleaned! She is fostered in the Flagler Beach area, and her adoption donation is $275. 


Lizzie, a Shih Tzu mix
Lizzie is a 7-9 year old female Shih Tzu mix and she weighs about 9 pounds. She 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. Lizzie didn't receive any medical care in her previous life and sadly this led to severe tooth decay, which then caused the bone in her lower jaw to decay. 
Her lower jaw broke and never healed so now it is basically useless. She has a couple of teeth left, that cannot be removed at this time due to the damage to her lower jaw, She is not in pain at this time and eats soft food just fine. Her foster parents say, "One look into her eyes is all she needs to make you swoon for her. She loves your attention and will plop down and take it all in. She’s loves playing with her siblings and with soft chew toys. Lizzie is a happy pup that really knows how to do the “puppy eyes.” She’s currently working on her housetraining but someone home most of the time would be ideal. She is a low energy pup that gets along with other dogs and most likely with older, very gentle, calm children. She is missing most of her bottom teeth due the poor living conditions from her previous owners. It doesn’t appear to affect her at all. She’s looking forward to give you all her love!" Lizzie 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. 

Corey, a Shih Tzu
Corey is a 4-5 year old male Shih Tzu mix and he weighs about 14 pounds.  He arrived in rescue after being dumped and left behind in someone’s fenced backyard. Obviously he was scared and confused, but he has settled into his foster home nicely, and his foster mom says, "If you are looking for a playful, intelligent pupper to fill your days with joy, he’s the one! He is very comfortable in a home setting and enjoys cuddling up with his humans, while watching Netflix.
You can win him over with treats and he’ll reward you with kisses. He came into our lives as if he’s always been there. He enjoys running for short periods of time in the backyard but loves lounging on the couch. Corey is looking for his “furever” family to shower with his affection. We haven’t seen him interact with children but we can see them growing up with older dog savvy kiddos together and being best friends. When he hears children outside, he sits near the window patiently to see if they are coming to play with him. He’s working on his leash and house training and is doing well with both." Corey 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.

Charles, a Yorkie/Schnauzer mix
Charles is a 1 year old male Yorkie/Schnauzer mix and he weighs about 14 pounds.  He arrived in rescue after his family could no longer care for him and he didn't enjoy his time at animal control, so he became a little mouthy. He has settled into foster care well and this little guy is a total LOVE!  His foster mom says, "Once in foster care he warmed up immediately and has been running, playing, and giving kisses ever since. Charles, or as we call him, Charlie, is a great, smart little dog that acts his young age.  He is fun, happy, exuberant and energetic.  He walks well on a harness and leash, plays in the yard, and likes toys, chew bones, and treats.   He has met our dog-savvy cats without incident, but he is not cat-proof.  Mine do not run but if they did, I am sure he would chase them or anything else that looks like a playmate.  He is very friendly and affectionate, especially with women.  He has retreated from and barked at male strangers though he quickly accepts men upon proper introduction. He plays happily with the other dogs in the house and yard including toy play, but shows some inexperience with a group of dogs.  
He did need a few dog etiquette lessons when it came to food and treats, as he would like them ALL to himself, and was quite surprised when the other dogs didn’t go along with this.  Charlie is not completely housetrained but has been doing great on his own without much instruction.  He is confined in a small room to sleep (quietly) through the night, and has waited until let out in the morning to do his (urgent) business. He goes out often during the day on a schedule and so far, so good. Charlie really needs a yard to burn off that puppy energy and to accommodate his in-progress housetraining.  He would love another active, tolerant dog friend that appreciates his energy and playfulness and/or people that are home more often than not. This happy little guy will be a loving companion to his lucky adopter!" Charles is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, and microchipped! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $275.

Nanoo, a Poodle
Nanno is a 9 year old male Poodle and he weighs about 6.5 pounds.  He arrived in rescue when his family could no longer care for him. He has settled into foster care nicely and is ready to find a forever family of his own! His foster mom says, "What a handsome gentleman Nanoo is! He doesn’t walk, he struts like he is in a fashion show. He loves to wear outfits and follows me around the house. If I go into a room that he can’t follow me, he will whine until I come back out. He will let you know when he wants snuggles and belly rubs by rubbing his head against your leg.  He will have spurts where he wants to play with me, doing a little dance to get my attention. Nanoo did mark the first 2 days I had him, but once I showed him where to go potty and took him out on walks 3 times a day, the marking has completely stopped.  
When I leave the house, I put a belly band on him in case he has to go while I am away.  Nanoo will sleep in my bed all night with no issues.  He will bark and whine when I leave and does not like a crate at all, so no shared walls please.  Nanoo likes other people, older kids and dogs, but would do just fine being the only pet in the house.  He listens well and loves his walks on a leash, where he will try to play with any dog he meets.  This petite gentleman lives to be by my side and is my faithful shadow and companion." Nanno 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.

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!
