Hi my name is Paco and I am a very special boy. At least that’s what my foster mom tells me. I am a happy and loving friend who enjoys being with people. In fact, I love running and playing with my human friends throughout the house. One of my special attributes is that I have a beautiful shiny satin coat. I am very handsome, even if I say so myself. My favorite place to sit is in your lap, whether its at the computer, relaxing on the patio or watching TV. Sometimes my foster mom calls me a “piece of work” because I can be quite curious and robust about life. I am looking for someone special to be a companion that I can give my big heart full of love.

Unfortunately my last owners did not love and take care of me so I ended up with heartworms. Thanks to the wonderful people at FLDR they gave me the lifesaving treatment so that I may continue living and bring happiness to whomever I see. I have also had IVDD surgery and had to have some rehab, but I’m all better now. Just try and keep up with me! I’ll show you some moves that would make Deon Sanders proud (NFL pro running back).

So now I am ready for my forever loving home. Please give me chance, I have a lot of love and happiness to bring into your home. I am neutered and up to date on my vaccines.

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 or concerns you may email my foster family at quita863@earthlink.net.

Dewey is a cute young puppy looking for a new forever home. He takes a little time to warm up to people, but once he does, he will be your best friend. He wants to be someone’s cuddle bunny!

Dewey is good with other dogs and loves to play with toys. He needs a home without young children. Older kids, who know how to handle dogs, would be ok with him.

Dewey is healthy, up to date on his vaccinations and heartworm negative. He is working on his housetraining, but still needs a little work.

Meet Jill! Jill is a fabulous standard Dachshund who weighs in at 22 pounds. Jill came to FLDR as a heartworm positive dog from a shelter. She has undergone treatment and is now heartworm negative. Jill is current on her shots and ready to find a forever home.

Jill is a very athletic and active girl. There’s nothing she loves more than long walks in the neighborhood. She’s a very enthusiastic hunter and has learned that if she crashes the fence she can knock lizards off of it where she can catch them. Jill’s ideal home would include a large fenced yard for her to patrol. Jill gets along great with her foster brother Buddy. Buddy has back issues and Jill seems to be able to sense that she can’t rough house with him. Jill loves snuggling with her humans on the couch after a long day of walks and making lizards fear her approach. Because of her strong prey drive, we recommend Jill goes to a home without cats. We also don’t have any indication how she would do with children.

Jill is house broken. She rarely has an accident and only due to things that frighten her (like fireworks). Jill is very affectionate and loving and fiercely protective of her family. Jill is young, healthy and the perfect adoptee!

If you think Jill is the right dog for you, please fill out an application with her name on it and email my foster family at drooney4@tampabay.rr.com about your interest or with questions, so they can contact you about becoming Jill’s new forever home.

Name: Maxwell Smart (14-52)
Age: 7-8 years old
Sex: Male
Weight: 27 lbs.
Spayed/Neutered: Yes
Coat: Smooth
Color: Red
Fee: $150

Max is an amazing boy that has been through a lot and just wants to be loved! He was skin and bones at only 19 pounds and had heartworms when we got him, but he was still very sweet to be around and his spirit was still strong. He is the right weight now at 27 pounds and has completed the heartworm treatment. He is a healthy boy and very happy as well. 

Max is an adorable Doxie mix. He is a happy go lucky soul that likes to play with toys and other dogs. However, he’s not the best at sharing his toys and he likes to be the one getting all the love, so he would also do well as an only dog. As long as he has his person loving him, he’s happy! He will get up on the couch next to you to snuggle but he is happy to sleep on his own bed on the floor next to your bed at night. He also goes into his crate on request, is house trained, and LOVES to go for a walk on a leash. He’s a good leash walker, too, he doesn’t pull too hard or run really fast. He’s happy to keep pace with you. His ideal home would no doubt have children to pay extra special attention to him, loving him as much as possible.

Max is up to date on his shots and ready to be your best friend. He is smart, hence his name “Maxwell Smart”, and just a plain old “Good Ol’ Boy”. If you think he is the right addition to your family, please fill out an application with his name on it and/or email me at melissa.kilmer@yahoo.com.

Name: Cumo (14-58)
Age: 10 years old
Sex: Male
Weight: 24 lbs.
Spayed/Neutered: Yes
Coat: Long hair
Color: Piebald
Fee: $100.00
Location: Sarasota, FL
Email: calveg77@yahoo.com

Cumo is the sweetest boy who is wonderful with other dogs & cats. He blends very well. He is a spry 10 year old and always knows when to howl for food when the time comes. He just had a dental and his pre-dental bloodwork was perfect. He loves his food, and because of that, he is overweight and needs to be walked.

Cumo has microphthalmia or small eye, which is genetic and he has limited vision. Foster home strongly recommends a calm, non-chaotic home due to his limited vision. While he loves other animals, is very spunky and once lived with kids before they developed allergies, he can’t react quickly to sudden movements of active dogs and kids. Cumo would do best in a home with an older dog and adults.

He loves to walk, and needs to drop a few pounds. Cumo is a great dog who doesn’t have a mean bone in his body and still has many years to live and love.

If you think Cumo is the right dog for you, please fill out an application with his name on it and email his foster home at calveg77@yahoo.com about your interest or with questions, so they can contact you about becoming my 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 every few hours. So he needs someone who is home of the time and 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 medications & 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.

Weight: 13.5 lbs.
Spayed/Neutered: Yes
Coat: Long hair (Chiweenie)
Color: Red
Fee: $100

Dumbledor is an adorable Chiweenie who has a lot of love to give. He is a very good little boy, happy, smart, athletic, can dance on his hind legs and is generally very cute and entertaining. He is a good traveler, loves going for walks and meeting new people but is also happy to curl up at the feet of his owner or in a nearby soft doggie bed. He doesn’t really understand how to play with toys, but likes using them as pillows. Everyone says the name Dumbledor suits him, but he doesn’t answer to it so it can easily be changed.

Most importantly Dumbledor is a dog that deserves a lot of love. He was taken from a home with 30 dogs, so he never got the attention he deserved. For that reason, his ideal situation would be as an only dog, so he does not have to compete with other dogs for attention . He needs someone who can show him that he is special and deserves the love they give him. In return, he will be very loving and totally devoted to his family.

Dumbledor adapts well to new environments and routines. He is housetrained and walks well on a leash. He is healthy, up to date on all shots and is heartworm negative. He does have partial sight in one eye due to a cataract.

If you think Dumbledor is the right dog for you, please fill out an application with his name on it and email Cathy at ccaverly@cfl.rr.com about your interest in becoming his new forever home or with any questions you may have and she will contact you.

Hi, my name is Snickers and I need a new forever home. I sleep in my crate at night until Dad wakes me up to go outside to potty. I check the house to make sure everything is good. When Mom and little sister get up, I greet them with a paw on the thigh, or if they’re low enough a lick on the face! Sometimes I get a little out of hand and Mom “grunts” at me and I stop. I hang around the kitchen hoping to catch some vegetables or meat, but I rarely do. Later we go for 1.6 mile walks around the block. I love it because there are so many smells! Then I play with my ball, sleep, chew my rawhide, cuddle, play some more with my ball and sleep again.

I like almost any dry dog food, prefer faucet water and will do a few tricks for treats. I am great with kids. I don’t know about cats though. I like other dogs too. I am healthy, up to date on my vaccinations and ready to meet you.

If you think I am the right dog for you, please fill out an application with my name on it and email my current family at jag302ci@gmail.com about your interest or with questions, so they can contact you about becoming my new forever home.

Tito – Courtesy Posting

Tito-collage2*This is a courtesy posting.  FLDR bears no responsibility, present or future, in the adoption of Tito.

Name:  Tito
Age:  8 1/2 years old
Sex:  Male
Weight:  13 lbs.
Spayed/Neutered:  Neutered
Coat:  Smooth
Color:  Red
Fee:  Contact Owner
Location:  Oviedo, FL
Email:  evelyn.quintana@sodexo.com

Tito is a chocolate colored short-haired male miniature dachshund who has a special need.  He is neutered and has been taken to the Vets office every year for his shots and is on heartworm preventative.  He is very obedient and extremely smart.  He’s very playful, but not necessarily fond of little kids or cats.  He does like other dogs (he loves his own kind).  He loves to give kisses and loves to be taken on neighborhood walks.  He can bring lots of joy to any home.

On February of 2010, Tito suffered a back injury that occurred with no warning and as a result he is no longer able to utilize his back legs.  Due to his injury, he also suffers from incontinence; therefore, he needs to be expressed at least 2-3 times a day to avoid him suffering from kidney stones or other related issues.  The vet’s office taught the family how to express him and we use pee-pads to express him on.  Tito also requires the use of diapers in the house, as he is capable of leaving something behind.  So to avoid any messes, I use baby diapers and cut a hole in the back (they’re cheaper than dog diapers).

Since I was not able to afford the surgery and recovery was not guaranteed, I then looked into getting Tito a ‘cart’.  Tito has become a ‘pro’ at getting around in his cart.  He knows to back-up and how to get around corners.  He can run after his ball or toy.  He is truly a trooper!  I ordered the cart from one of the best companies, so it’s a good sturdy cart to help him get around for the rest of his life.

I am looking for a new home, not just any home, only someone who can truly care for Tito and love him unconditionally.  Tito was my family’s first pet and he’s been with us since he was 8 months old.  So any pet lover would know how much they become a part of your life.  After several years of Tito’s special need, I am very sad to say that I am forced to find a new home for Tito.

If you think he is the right dog for you, please fill out an adoption application and contact Evelyn Quintana at 407-695-7062 (please leave a message if voicemail comes on) or email her at evelyn.quintana@sodexo.com, so she can contact you about becoming Tito’s new forever home.
