Carmichael is a wonderful loving little boy. He’s what some would call a gentle little soul that has a big heart full of love to give to that special someone. He is very much a people pup. He enjoys cuddling on the couch while watching TV or working at the computer.

Carmichael loves to hunt lizards and roam the back yard. But who can blame him with the great weather Florida has had this year. He would prefer a new mom or dad who is home most of the time, since he has some separation anxiety. That way, he won’t get lonely. He’s very obedient and is pretty well housetrained, just as long as it is no longer than 6 hours at a time. If you are looking for a companion full of love, this is your boy.

If you think Carmichael is the right dog for you, please fill out an application with his name on it and email his foster family at quitaresq@gmail.com about your interest or with questions, so they can contact you about becoming Carmichael’s new forever home.

Name: Missy (14-23)
Age: 5 years old
Sex: Female
Weight: 22 lbs.
Spayed/Neutered: Yes
Coat: Smooth
Color: Red
Fee: $200
Location: Port Charlotte, FL
Email: melissa.kilmer@yahoo.com

Missy is a doxie mix, who was surrendered to the shelter because her owner “had no time to give her attention”. She is so deserving of a loving home and a very good girl just waiting to love you. She’s somewhat timid and even submissive at first. She lowers her head and sometimes even rolls over on her back; when you reach down to pet her. Once she knows you like her (and she likes you), she is like a sponge absorbing all the love she can find.

She likes to play with her brother but would do well as an only dog too. She is house trained, up to date on her shots and very healthy. Oh, and she is SO soft to the touch. I could pet her for hours.

If you think yours could be the right home for her, please fill out an application with her name on it and contact her foster home at melissa.kilmer@yahoo.com with any questions.

Name: Pugg (13-167)
Age: 10+ years old
Sex: Male
Weight: 12 lbs.
Spayed/Neutered: Yes
Coat: Longhair
Color: Red (with dark overcoat)
Fee: $25

Arf, arf, arf, which means “Hi, my name is Pugg”! I am the last of the 3 Amigo’s that FLDR rescued on Christmas Eve. They saved our lives that day! I have had a very rough life until now and I am looking for a new mom or dad or both, to love me and let me snuggle with them.

I was very bonded to my brother Hercules. He was very, very sick and I miss him very much, but I am doing very well since there are other fur friends around at my foster home. My sister Sonja found a great home through FLDR in February! Now I would like to find my FURever family too.

I would be better with bigger kids, 10 years or older please. I would love to hang out with another dog and you! I get along well with big dogs and little dogs, as long as they don’t run me over. I like barking at cats and chasing lizards.

I lost a lot of fur before coming to my foster family. But it’s growing back so perfect and nice, my foster mom calls them my baby hairs and tells me how soft and beautiful I am! I am house broken. I am now crate trained. But I still want to sleep on your bed, if you let me. I don’t chew up stuff or do bad things. I am current on all my shots. I have had my teeth cleaned and had to have 3 pulled, so I need a soft diet. But I feel like a million bucks now!

If you think I am the right dog for you, please fill out an application with my name on it and email my foster family at tampadoxie@gmail.com about your interest or with questions, so they can contact you about becoming my new forever home.

Name: Maxx (13-142)
Age: 4 years old
Sex: Male
Weight: 8 lbs.
Spayed/Neutered: Yes
Coat: Longhair
Color: Chocolate & Tan
Fee: $150
Location: Riverview, FL
Email: stbeachrr@yahoo.com

Maxx is a Chiweenie (a little Doxie and a lot of Chihuahua). He is a small, mellow, little snuggler. Even though he has longer legs, he’s not a big runner or jumper. He loves to be held and pet. He came to Florida Dachshund Rescue when his owner found out he was heartworm positive and was not able to afford the treatment. He has finished his treatment now, but because of the heartworms, he has a low tolerance for activity and an occasional cough.

Maxx would make a perfect pocket pet! He’s happiest when he is snuggled up next to someone. He is also good with kids. He is good with other dogs, but he likes to be the center of attention. He would be good as an only dog, or as part of a small pack.

Maxx is up to date on his vaccines and crate trained, but still needs work on his house training.

If you think Maxx is the right dog for you, please fill out an application with his name on it and email my foster family at stbeachrr@yahoo.com about your interest or with questions, so they can contact you about becoming my new forever home.

Name: Troy (14-1)
Age: 6 years old
Sex: Male
Weight: 9 pounds
Spayed/Neutered: Yes
Coat: Smooth
Color: Red
Fee: $225.00

Email: colleen.doxiemom@gmail.com

I am Troy! I was an owner surrender after living with my owners for six years. I became very jealous of the new baby and they were afraid I would hurt it, so I am looking for my new “furever” home.

I do have alpha tendencies, so I would not do well with another alpha doxie family member. But I have done well with my foster brother and sisters, with little problem. I got along very well with my 11 year old human niece that came to visit us. She gave me lots and lots of attention, which I crave. I would do best in a home with older children.

I am completely house trained, like walks and love to ride in the car! I follow sit and stay commands and foster mom is teaching me the “come here” and “quiet” words. I have started to play with toys and chew on bones. I feel more relaxed now than when I first got to my foster home. I have learned to use the doggie stairs to get up on the couch and big bed, but need more training on using them to get down.

I am a good boy, love to be praised and just want to do what I’m supposed to do. I will sit in your lap all day or I will follow you around wherever you go. I just had my teeth cleaned & now foster mom says I give sweet smelling kisses! I also had my first bath today and just sat in the big dog tub while the warm water just poured all over me and it was amazing! I am clean, teeth polished and ready to find my new home!

If you think I am the right dog for you, please fill out an application with my name on it and email my foster family at colleen.doxiemom@gmail.com about your interest or with questions, so they can contact you about becoming my new forever home.

Hi, I am Woody. I am a happy but quiet little guy. I get along really well with other dogs, but I am not sure about cats. I want to be next to you at all times and I am a little shy around new people.

I have epilepsy and I take phenobarbital two times a day (in pill form). This is an inexpensive pill and will prevent me from having seizures. If you miss a pill, I might have a little seizure, but if you leave me alone for a few minutes I will be fine again.

I am very well house-trained and I have never had an accident in my foster home. I think I might be best in a quiet home without kids or a lot of commotion. Please give me a new home, I will be your new best friend and will give you lots of love.

If you think I am the right dog for you, please fill out an application with my name on it and email my foster family at manerian0123@aol.com about your interest or with questions, so they can contact you about becoming my new forever home.

Name: Logan (13-160)
Age: 4 years old
Sex: Male
Weight: 12 lbs.
Spayed/Neutered: Neutered
Coat: Smooth
Color: Red
Fee: $250

Logan is such a sweet boy. He has a great personality! He doesn’t chew improper things and is housebroken (only 1 accident on day one). Logan gets very excited when you come home! He LOVES a tummy rub and listens very well! He comes when called 99% of the time.

Logan cannot be left alone for long periods of time. But 3 to 4 hours either free roaming or behind a baby gate, he is fine. He sleeps through the night without potty time and loves to either sleep in his bed, either in your room or in bed with you. He has been known to burrow under the pillows and become one of them!

Logan does not like to be crated and he does not like being locked in a room with a closed door. He is fine if you put up a baby gate and leave the door to the room open, for him to see. He is very good as a free roamer.

Logan gets protective of his food, toys & chew toys.  He has been known to growl if you try to take these away from him.  Foster mom has been working with him on this issue, but due to this behavior, he needs to go to a home without young children (under 10) living in the home or visiting often.  

Logan is good with other dogs. He loves being the center of your attention, so he would be fine as a solo dog as well. Despite a rough start to life, Logan is just full of love to give! He doesn’t bark much, unless someone comes to the door. Logan is waiting and ready for his FURever home!

If you think Logan is the right dog for you, please fill out an application with his name on it and email his foster family at tampadoxie@gmail.com about your interest or with any questions you have.

Name: Annie and Rudy
Age: about 10 and 7
Sex: Both Females
Spayed/Neutered: Yes
Coat: Smooth
Color: Black and Tan
Fee: $200 for the bonded pair (to be donated to FLDR)
Location: St Petersburg, FL
Contact email: lizheinkel@gmail.com

*This is a courtesy posting. FLDR bears no responsibility, present or future, in the adoption of Annie & Rudy.

These darling dachshunds were adopted by a St Pete couple several years ago. They are a mother-daughter “bonded pair” that provide lots of love and entertainment while watching them play. A new job outside the home that takes their owners away for long periods of time, have provided an opportunity for a new owner to enjoy these purebred dachshunds.

They are about 7 and 10 years of age, love sunning in the backyard and they LOVE treats! They are both spayed and all shots are up to date.  They probably would not do well in a home with cats.

If you are interested in giving these 2 sweethearts a new forever home, please fill out an adoption application and contact lizheinkel@gmail.com, if you have specific questions.
