Quincy is a very special senior doxie with a beautiful color. He was surrendered to FLDR when his owners could no longer care for him.

Quincy walks well on leash and is a very happy, sweet dog who loves to be held. He likes other dogs, tolerates pet birds, but doesn’t like cats (or other small pets). He sleeps in his crate bed at night, but would love to sleep with you. Quincy would be great for an older couple. His is 95% potty trained, if taken out every few hours and will use a doggy door, if shown.

Quincy has a small kidney stone that does not need removed, but he is on a special dog food to help it dissolve. He has most of his teeth and will tolerate you brushing them. He loves to have his beautiful coat brushed.

If you think Quincy would be that special addition to your family, please fill out an application with his name on it and contact his foster mom, Rita, at orgelrita@hotmail.com with any questions, so she can contact you about becoming Quincy’s new forever home.

Hi, my name is Princess and I am a very active, but lovable girl. I was abandoned at animal control by my owners, so I am a little fearful when I first meet someone. But give me 5 minutes and I will be your best buddy. Some of my behavior is ownership and some from negative past experiences. I am good with other pups and would love to have a brother or sister to play with. I also enjoy being outside sitting in the sun or hunting the great lizard beasts in the yard. I am still working on my commands, however since I’m still a puppy it’s more play than work. I am a happy, fun loving little girl. I am housetrained but will use potty pads if need be.

Princess has a medical condition called seizure disorder. They are a different type of seizure that looks like she is drunk with some loss of motor function. They only last about 2 minutes. They are not severe and she does not lose consciousness. She is completely alert and cognitive. She is on Phenobarbital twice a day. It is not an expensive drug and costs about $13.00 a month. The seizures are under control with the medication. FLDR has had her checked out thoroughly including a trip to UF Small Animal Hospital in Gainesville, Florida. She has been cleared by the neurologist as just having a seizure disorder. She also needs to use a specific heartworm and flea prevention medication call Revolution. Her life expectancy is normal with good medical care, lots of love and compassion.

Princess is spayed and up to date on all vaccines and medical care. She would do best in a home with NO children and a fenced yard.

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.

Henry was a breeder dog and is now much happier as a house doxie. He is a good old boy, very smart, loves everyone and is very friendly. He has overcome a lot! He had a hernia, very bad teeth and was in a lot of pain, but he still always had a smile on his face and a bounce in his step.

He is a great dog who won’t roam and will come when called. He will sleep wherever you like. He needs to lose some weight. He is very food anxious and will try to eat all the other dog’s food, so he needs to kept on a good diet. Other then his weight, he is healthy, up to date on vaccinations and ready for a new forever home.

Angel is a very sweet and adorable little Dachshund. She loves to snuggle in bed, on the coach, beside you in the chair, well she likes to snuggle. Angel is great on the leash and enjoys walking in the neighborhood, which has been very good for her losing weight and now keeping fit and trim.

Angel goes right outside and comes when you call her. She does get along with the other dogs, but can be aggressive if allowed. Angel does have some anxiety when it storms. We have found if we place her in the crate and cover the crate she calms down.

If you think Angel would be a good addition to your family, please fill out an application with her name on it and email her foster family at tatrescue@gmail.com about your interest or with questions, so they can contact you about becoming her new forever home.

Ollie is a handsome, active, healthy male. He came to us quite overweight, but in a little over a month he’s dropped the pounds and is looking great. He loves to run and play outside, lizard chasing is one of his favorite past times. He likes walks, does great on the leash and loves the dog park. Ollie is a real snuggle bug and will curl up next to you on the sofa and wants to sleep in bed with you at night.

Ollie is a relaxed fellow with other dogs. He likes to wrestle and play and does not react at all to aggression from other dogs. He truly enjoys chasing cats, so it would be best if he was in a home that did not have cats. Ollie can be a bit nervous when meeting new people and sudden movements make him uncomfortable, so he would do best in a home without small children. We have seen these behaviors lessen with time! He would do best with someone who has lots of time to spend with him and who can be active with him.

Ollie is crate trained, but he does not like to be in a crate and he can do well left un-crated for short periods of time. He is potty trained and has a consistent bathroom schedule, but will mark in the home at times. He does great with a belly band and that minimizes the behavior.  Ollie is a wonderful, loving little man who is looking for an active new home!

If you think Ollie is the right dog for you, please fill out an application with his name on it and email his foster family at kimg1110@yahoo.com about your interest or with questions, so they can contact you about becoming his new forever home.

I’m the companion you’ve been missing. I’m the sweetest little love you are longing for! I came to my foster home 2 months ago. I had advanced dental disease that needed a lot of medical care. However, that never slowed down my love of food, treats, toys, or affection! I did have to have a few teeth removed, but never fear my smile is still perfect!

I live with 2 dogs (a lab and another dachshund) and 2 cats. I get along well with all of them. I do love to chase squirrels and lizards so I may not be great around any timid cats.

I have no FEARS!!! I love all people including the Veterinarian, strangers, and children of all ages. My foster mom brushes my teeth and trims my nails. I am even great at letting her paint my nails and put me in dresses! I’ll let anyone do just about anything to me so long as they let my give them kisses.

I really love toys and play time. I never tear up toys or destroy anything. I sleep well in the bathroom set up for me, but I don’t enjoy sleeping in the crate. I am potty trained, but I can’t hold it for more than 4 to 6 hours. I will use a puppy pad left for me in the bathroom though.

If I sound like the perfect fit for your family please fill out an application and contact my foster mom at dachshundcrazy987@gmail.com with any questions.

Meet Murphy! He is a great dog that was surrendered because his former family worked way too much and he was crated long hours a day. He is a standard dachshund mix with the cutest ears. He has lots of energy and loves all dogs, cats, adults & older kids (just because he has so much energy, we don’t want him to knock over a toddler while playing).

Murphy would do best with an active family. He has lots of energy and needs to be able to expend that energy daily. He loves all dogs, but he really loves bigger dogs that he can run and play with. An active family that likes to go to the dog park, hike, jog, etc., would be perfect for Murphy.

Murphy is crate trained, housetrained, neutered, up to date on his vaccinations and microchipped. He has even had obedience training and is just a great dog. A large fenced in yard would also be best for Murphy.

If you think Murphy is the right dog for you, please fill out an application with his name on it and if you have any questions, please email his foster family at pamelalaplantel@aol.com or call Pam at 941-713-0825.

Meet Bebe! Bebe is an amazing senior dog that has overcome a lot of obstacles to be with us today. Bebe’s favorite activities include short walks around the neighborhood and chasing cats, but her favorite activity is power snoozing! No bed in the house is safe from Bebe, she will seek out and nap in any bed/crate you have. She gets along great with her foster brother, but she will chase cats.

Bebe has some minor medical issues that will require some routine maintenance from her new family. Bebe is prone to irritations of the pancreas, so a bland healthy diet is a must. She has a skin condition that requires weekly baths with a medicated shampoo. Bebe also has some issues with her bowels that require pumpkin supplements and an inexpensive, easy to administer medication. None of these issues are hard to administer or expensive and it’s a real rush to see how happy “Beebs” gets when everything is taken care of!

Bebe is truly grateful for good care and will let you know with rapid fire “sideways” kisses. Most of Bebe’s teeth have been removed, so her foods needs to be soaked in warm water.

If you think Bebe is the right dog for you, please complete and adoption application with her name on it. You can also email his foster family at drooney4@tampabay.rr.com about your interest or with questions, so they can contact you about becoming Bebe’s new forever home.

Hi, my name is Archie a very loveable doxie who is looking for a forever home. I was rescued from a shelter by FLDR. I did have a skin problem and I had to have all my upper teeth removed and a couple of lower, but I am doing much better now.

My foster pop mixes some dry dog food (the small bits) with some can dog food to soften it up and I can eat it fine. I just dance around on the floor while he is mixing it because I know that it is time to eat. As for the skin issue, it is much better. I’ve been taking some antibiotics for it which has helped. The vet took me off of them for a while to see how I did without them. It just looks like I have dandruff sometimes. It is nothing contagious; I just need regular baths and sometimes some antibiotics to help me with it.

I am house trained and love to go for walks. Up to date on all shots and heartworm negative and I get along with people, children and with other dogs. I love to sit beside you in my doggie bed and watch TV. When I get sleepy I will cover myself up all except my nose. I almost forget to tell you I love to follow you around to see what you are doing. If you are looking for a great companion try me.

If you think I am the right dog for you, please complete and adoption application with my name on it. You may 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.

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.

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.

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.

Coat:  Smooth
Color:  Red
Fee:  Contact Owner

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.
