Paco is a wonderfully happy boy. He always greets you with a tail wag and kisses. He loves to play with soft squeaky toys and tennis balls. He enjoys being outside whether hunting lizards or just sitting in the sun.

Paco goes through life giving it all he’s got no matter what happens. He’s truly an inspiration. Unfortunately he came to FLDR medically neglected. He’s successfully been through heartworm treatment and IVDD surgery. He still has a little waddle in his back end when he walks, but considering he went from no feeling in his back end to standing and walking is quite remarkable. It really shows his zest for life. I would like to say it slows him down but Paco has two speeds, fast and faster. He’s very smart but often selective in his listening to commands.

If you are looking for a companion full of love and happiness this boy is for you. Please give him a chance. You will be rewarded with a life full of tail wags and kisses.

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.

Name: Maxwell Smart (14-52)
Age: 7-8 years old
Sex: Male
Weight: 27 lbs.
Spayed/Neutered: Scheduled to be neutered 8/19
Coat: Smooth
Color: Red
Fee: $150
Location: Port Charlotte, FL
Email: melissa.kilmer@yahoo.com

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. He does still need to be neutered and then he will be ready to go to his forever home by about August 27.

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.

Email: tlawrence17@gmail.com

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.

Cumo is up to date on all of his shots, had a pretty extensive dental cleaning last November and is on heartworm and flea preventatives.  Cumo is working on losing some weight.

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!

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.

Sex: Female
Weight: 22 lbs.
Spayed/Neutered: Yes
Coat: Smooth
Color: Red
Fee: $200

Email: melissa.kilmer@yahoo.com

Missy is a sweet girl who gets 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.  Her legs are a little long, so she may have some Terrier mixed in.

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.

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.

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

A fellow rescue, Poodle and Pooch Rescue of Florida, asked if we could cross-post this sweet bonded pair on our website.

Abby Belle is a 7 year old, 11 lb long haired Dachshund girl and Buddy Jackson is an 8 year old, 20 lb Dachshund boy. These two are a bonded pair that would prefer to stay together since they love each other very much. Abby is just as sweet as sugar! She is a tiny girl with the prettiest eyes and as gentle as a little lamb. She would make an excellent snuggler since she just enjoys spending time with you. Abby is one of the sweetest dogs you will meet! She has a calm disposition and just goes with flow, no matter what the situation is. She is sweet little girl.

Buddy is very affectionate and he has a tail that never stops wagging! He enjoys spending time outside exploring the world and rolling in the grass, it is quite possibly his favorite thing to do! Buddy really enjoys treats and will stand on his hind legs and dance when there is a treat involved, it is just too funny! He gets along with other dogs and is a sweetheart to everyone he meets! Abby and Buddy are housetrained, spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and heartworm negative.

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

*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.
