My name is Godfrey and I am a sweet dachshund. I am lovable, a couch snuggler who always wants to be close to my foster dad! I am a bit overweight but with strict diet and lots of walks, I have already lost some weight and look forward to losing a few more pounds in my forever home.

I am little timid when first meeting people and might growl, but once I sniff you, I fall in love! My favorite place to be is as close to you as possible on the couch or in the bath tub because I LOVE baths.

I am very well house and crate trained and have not had any accidents after I became acclimated to my new foster home. In fact, I will let me owner know I need to go outside by gently whining and nudging them with my nose, so they know to take me outside. I walk very well on a leash, unless I see a squirrel, my mortal enemies!

I get along fine with my foster sister Sadie and have done well around my foster dad’s nephew who is 3, but my experience with children is limited. I would do best in a house where the owner is there a lot for me to snuggle with on the couch.

I just had a full checkup and teeth cleaning at the Vet and I am ready to find my forever 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 tlawrence17@gmail.com about your interest or with questions, so they can contact you about becoming my new forever home.

Rusty is a sweet and loving little boy. He was left at Sarasota Animal Control to be euthanized because of a severe back issue. After arriving in FLDR care he was rushed to a specialist in Tampa for diagnosis. He did in fact have a case of IVDD and went immediately to surgery that very afternoon. He was Dr. Hay’s star pupil from the start. His rehab progressed quickly with excellent results. Only after 8 weeks, he was pronounced very healthy and ready for adoption.

Rusty loves to play with toys. He is often seen carrying his favorite around with him wherever he goes. He likes his yard time whether is hunting lizards or just sitting in the sun. He is very much a people pup who loves to be with you. If you have time to sit and rub his belly, he will be your best friend forever. He would make a wonderful companion. He enjoys being held, talked to and loved on. He is very obedient and housetrained. He’s a very easy pup and a joy to have around.

I am Rusty’s foster home and I am so grateful to FLDR for saving this wonderful little boy. He has brought many smiles into our home. Please give him a chance; your life will be rewarded with a heart full of love and joy.

We do not recommend him being around children or cats.

If you think I am the right dog for you, please fill out an application with my name on it. If you have any questions, you may email my foster family at quita863@earthlink.net.

Hi! My name is Mason. Let me tell ya, I am a barrel of energy and have a huge prey drive. If I catch sight of any animal, I will chase.

I am currently staying with large dogs and two cats. This being said, I would be great as an only animal. I do not like cats at all! But, I love dogs! I am super playful with them. We play all day long. I would do great with other dogs, but I just need a little training. If my dog friends take my toys, get near my humans or sometimes my food or treats, I will snap at them. Nothing some training won’t fix.

I would probably prefer a doggie buddy. I am very protective of things I love. However, I am the sweetest boy to my humans. I love to cuddle all day and night. My biggest addiction is my toys! I cannot be without them. They must go everywhere with me!

I am currently working on my potty training. I have gotten better since being neutered, but I am far from perfect on this matter. I don’t really mind my crate though, as long as you place my toy in with me. I am heartworm negative, UTD on all vaccines, my teeth are pearly white and I am so ready to find my forever family!

If you think I may be your forever boy, please email my foster family at sbauer7427@gmail.com and fill out an adoption application with my name on it. Can’t wait to meet you!

Silver came from a shelter and was in such bad shape they thought he was at least 10 years old. He had bald patches, mange and was pretty sick.

Now that Silver has recovered from his illness, mange and has grown back most of his hair, the vet thinks he is only 6 or 7 years old. He is a beautiful wirehair Doxie who walks well on a leash and is very well behaved.

Silver gets along well with other dogs and loves to snuggle. He is healthy now and ready for a new forever home.

Sex: Female
Weight: 29 lbs.
Spayed/Neutered: Yes
Coat: Smooth
Color: Chocolate Dapple
Fee: $175
Location: Jacksonville Beach, FL
Email: dachsiemom.2010@hotmail.com

A whole new world! Freija is a sweet lady with excellent manners who fell into a bad situation. Her owner passed away and the family dropped her at a shelter with a euthanization order, calling her “slow.” You see, her owner had grossly overfed this sweet girl, causing her to be almost unable to walk across a room from all of the additional weight she was carrying. Also, because of the weight, she had a severe yeast infection that made it very uncomfortable and painful to move around. She was emotionally and physically shutting down in fear and pain when she was rescued and brought into foster care.
Since then, Freija has learned to walk on a leash and enjoys her evening walks for weight loss. She has also begun the socialization process which teaches her that new people and experiences do not have to be a frightening thing to hide from. She is learning to be accepting of men. Now that she has lost a few pounds and is moving around better, she really enjoys playing with toys, especially squeaky toys. Still, her favorite thing is snuggling on the couch.

Freija must be adopted to a family with other friendly and accepting dogs who will continue to help in the socialization process. She also needs a family who will be patient and dedicated to her continued weight loss, special diet, and overall continual health improvement as her ideal weight is somewhere between 17-20 pounds, and she has a long way to go.

She is up to date on monthly preventatives and shots, and is very well house trained. She is not cat tested, but is fine with children. When she reaches a more ideal weight, she will need a dental cleaning and possibly some cosmetic surgery to eliminate the excess skin of her dramatic weight loss.

If you think Freija is the right dog for you, please fill out an application with her name on it and email her foster family at dachsiemom.2010@hotmail.com about your interest or with questions, so they can contact you about becoming Freija’s new forever home.

Mogli is smart as a whip! He likes other dogs, people…just about everyone! He would be a great farm dog. He loves to ride on the mower with foster mom. He won’t run off & comes when you call him.

Mogli has chronic dry eye & has to have his eye medications put in about 8 times a day. So he needs someone who will be devoted to caring for him. This is a lifetime condition that cannot be cured, just managed. He doesn’t mind getting his eye meds & will jump up on a low table for foster mom to put the drops in.

Mogli is up to date on his vaccinations, heartworm negative & ready to find a new forever home.

If you think Mogli is the right dog for you, please fill out an application with his name on it and contact my foster mom at 941-322-8209 or 941-928-0761 about your interest or with questions, so she can talk to you about becoming my new forever home.

Email: melissa.kilmer@yahoo.com

Missy is a delightful girl that aims to please and has a heart of gold. She is timid at first meeting and sometimes startles easily at loud noises but she always reacts with caution and submission. Thunderstorms concern her to the point that she will either hide under a bed or pace while panting in the house, until it is over. Holding her in an effort to console her doesn’t seem to help much. She may have had somewhat of a fearful past, but she does well when she learns she is in a secure environment.

Missy likes to be around people but is not a “Velcro” dog and is not always under foot. She is obedient and house trained and loves to lay in the sunshine and enjoy the yard. She also does a delightful little dance at dinner time that makes me smile every time.

She does get along with dogs and although she is not cat tested, I believe she would do well with them also. As an only dog, she would be a great companion to any single person, couple, or family with older children. She loves to go for walks and she spends a good portion of the day outside in the fenced-in back yard if she is given the chance.

Missy is healthy, up to date on her shots and ready to be your best friend. She really is a sweetheart and I look forward to finding her forever home where she can feel secure for the rest of her life. If you think that could be your home, please fill out an application with her name on it and/or email me at melissa.kilmer@yahoo.com with any questions and she could be blessing your home in the near future.

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 have lots of energy & am an escape artist, so my new home needs a SECURELY fenced yard.  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!

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.

*This is a courtesy posting. FLDR bears no responsibility, present or future, in the adoption of Miss Pixie.

Miss Pixie is a MinPin who was rescued from a dubious home. She was extremely thin, dirty and covered in fleas! Her nails were so long, she couldn’t stand on her feet. Her gait was as though she had never walked on solid ground. That was 2 years ago. Since then she has been spayed, freed of the heartworm condition with a solid clean confirmation from the vet, kept up to date all her Florida required shots and maintained on heartworm, flea/tick maintenance and is now the picture of health.

As personality goes she’s just plain wonderful. To put it properly, Miss Pixie has manners but is truly the life of the party. As she healed her lovely personality began to unveil itself. Pixie is funny, loving, sweet and just a tad demanding. Life is all about her! She loves her treats and forgive me as I’m guilty of making her a bit overweight, but it was wonderful making up for lost time.

Miss Pixie adores belly rubs and isn’t ashamed to ask for more all day long. A happy little gal full of fun she loves walks and is well trained to potty on them, but she is additionally trained to use a pad in the apartment and is very pleased with her accomplishments accepting all the praise you’d like to offer. She is very socialized with no displays of aggression on her part. She has resided with two other dogs, one small and one very large and loves all people. If the cost wasn’t so prohibitive to take her back to my England home country I would take her so it is of the utmost importance to me that she receives the most compatible home for all involved.

If you think Miss Pixie is the right dog for you, please fill out an adoption application and contact my family at doxylady@gmail.com about your interest or with questions, so they can contact you about becoming my new forever home.

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.

No, Maggie is not a Dachshund, she is a Neapolitan Mastiff. She lived her life on 5 acres with just my brother, who passed away in April. I am his sister and have attempted to introduce and incorporate Maggie into my family with an 8 year old female Golden Doodle and a 4 year old male cat. She has adjusted to our dog, but tries to attack our cat at every chance she gets. They have to be separated at all times and it is not fair to Maggie or the cat. It is heart breaking, but we to have to find Maggie a new forever home.

Maggie has a very sweet disposition with people, especially men and dogs. She is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations and on heartworm prevention.

If you think Maggie is the right dog for you, please fill out an adoption application with her name on it and contact her current family at pjkyzer@yahoo.com about your interest or with questions.
