Story
Meet Gator! This 8-lb Chinese Crested blend is four years old. His name may make him sound tough, but Gator is just a super sweet little guy who is a great kisser and just wants to cuddle. General Behavior:  Gator is as sweet as they come! He gets so excited to see his people.  Everyone who has met him quickly becomes obsessed with him and can’t stop patting him. Gator can be a bit shy at first and gets really nervous around men. He did warm up to the man in his foster house, but you have to go slow and be patient with him. Likes & Dislikes: Gator loves to cuddle, kiss, and gets lots of belly rubs! He particularly loves to cuddle under blankets, as he is hairless. Training: Gator is a little gentleman with good basic manners! He is housetrained if let out frequently. He is a polite passenger in the car, walks well on a leash, and sleeps in the people bed at night. The one way he does love up to his name is that he will get into trash if unattended, but this can be fixed with secure trash cans. He also bows instead of sitting when you say "Sit", but his fosters are working with him on that. Medical: Gator is a healthy boy! He just needs his monthly flea and heartworm preventatives, like any dog. Other Animals: Gator is good with other calm, laid-back dogs and even with cats! Children: Gator is good with children of all ages. Home: Gator would do well downtown or down on the farm, in an apartment, condo, or single family home—anywhere there are a lot of blankets for him to burrow into! Grooming: Gator doesn’t shed because he is hairless. He will, however, need to have good skin care as he will get oily and acne if not bathed and moisturized. As they say at L’Oréal, he’s worth it! He also needs to wear a little t-shirt when out in the sun to protect his skin. Overall: Gator will make a wonderful, cuddly companion for a loving, patient family. Has Gator waddled his way into your heart? Then visit our website www.PoodleandPoochRescue.org where you will find the application to adopt. You’ll be put in contact with the foster family for more information if it’s a potential match. He is up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, microchipped, and neutered, and he has just had his teeth cleaned. His adoption donation is $375. ##2074514##

Story
Apply to Adopt Me! Janet is a very small, wiry, little chihuahua mix. She is around 1 1/2 years old and weighs around 5-6lbs. She had a very rough start in life. She came from a hoarding situation and they had very little human contact. Janet needs a patient, experienced dog family to show her the ropes. She can be fearful at first, but warms up in a few days or so. She may react with barking at strangers. She gets along with all of the other small dogs in her foster family – young and old alike and she is cat friendly. When she feels confident, she is the sweetest little girl in the world. She walks well on a leash and she is potty trained to pee pads. She does moderately well in a crate and will be quiet after some time. Janet loves all treats and loves to play with toys. Her absolute favorite is a sock to carry around. She is very proud of that trophy! She will do best with someone who is home most of the time. She is such a loving, kind, funny little dog. She is scared of men and needs an all-adult, female-only home where she can blossom and root for a lifetime. She also absolutely loves playing with her foster mom's little dog that is around her age and size, and we would love to continue that for her with another little playful dog in the household. She has so much to offer! If you live in the Central Florida/Orlando area, and believe you have the perfect home for Janet, please complete an application and tell us more about you.  July 13, 2024, 1:17 am

Story
Apply to Adopt Me! Meet 6 lb, 6-7 yo Peanut, a sassy, independent, adventurous Chihuahua who likes to have it her way. Her attitude has improved after surgery to remove her painful eyes; maybe she should be renamed Sweet Pea! She is house broken, crate trained and sleeps through the night in her bed. Peanut tested positive for heart worm in September, but has been on a protocol since then, so we’re hoping she will be given the all clear soon. She mostly ignores other dogs unless confronted, will voice her dislikes, but gives a warning bark to unfamiliar voices or noises. If you are on the look out for a watch dog, she’s your gal. Her hearing is excellent. Peanut is a good car rider. She navigates well inside the house to her beds, crate, the kitchen for treats, the water bowl, and will put herself to bed. Her most favorite place is outdoors exploring, sniffing, listening to sounds and protests if her peace is disturbed; a fenced yard would allow her to roam freely and is required for her. Our girl is food aggressive as a result of being found dumped and alone on a country road at just 3 lbs., obviously starving. Her foster mom puts her food down and walks away, giving her space. Peanut seems to prefer females, but just may warm up to a special guy who is well versed in Chi and their idiosyncrasies. While not a cuddler, she will approach for attention, a neck rub and, perhaps to join you on the couch under strict supervision because she will walk right off the edge if not stopped. Peanut may be best in a home as an only dog, would be okay with cats, but not with small children. We are adopting her to an all-adult home only. Peanut is heart worm positive at this time, and is on the slow kill method, which we can explain that process to any interested applicant. She can enjoy regular activities. Heart worm disease is contracted from an infected mosquito and can not be transmitted to another dog. If you think you have the perfect forever home for Peanut and her little quirks due to her sight limitations, please complete her app and tell us more about you. July 13, 2024, 1:17 am

Story
Apply to Adopt Me! Say hello to Nino!  This handsome little fellow was surrendered to Animal Services because his family no longer wanted him. His family said he is 14, but he behaves like a much younger dog. Our vet estimates Nino is between 8-10 years old. He weighs almost 7 pounds and has a striking salt-and-pepper colored coat.   Nino loves going on walks. He walks great on leash but gets excited if he sees a squirrel or dog. He may bark and pull so it’s important that his harness fits securely. Nino is easily redirected and the more experience walking outdoors, the less excited he gets upon seeing new things. Nino is sometimes startled by ordinary household objects. For example, he is convinced the vacuum cleaner is a monster and he loudly barks at it. Over time he should become accustomed to seeing the vacuum cleaner and lose interest in barking at it.   Indoors Nino gets along well with his smaller foster siblings. He craves attention so sometimes he will push in front of his foster siblings for pets or treats. He enjoys playing with his foster siblings but they don’t always reciprocate.  He loves to snuggle next to his people during TV time, and he sleeps quietly through the night at the foot of the bed or snuggled next to his people. Nino is house trained and crate trained. He doesn’t love going into his crate. He may bark or cry at first however he soon settles down. Nino has not shown destructive behaviors in the house. He is separated from his smaller foster siblings with a gate when his foster parents run errands but he does not need to be crated.   Nino is small enough to take just about anywhere, but he is also big enough to be able to go on a good walk outdoors when the weather is moderate. Due to his small size, Nino needs a home without small children. His ideal home would have adults only with just one other dog about Nino’s size, or no other dogs. This way there would be enough laps for everyone.   If you think you have the perfect forever home for Nino and you live in the Central Florida/Orlando area, please complete an application and tell us more about your family.
