Florida Little Dog Rescue rehabilitates unwanted, abused and abandoned little dogs and places them in loving and responsible homes to live out their lives as cherished family members. We would love for you to join us by adopting a dog, volunteering as a foster home or donating money to save the dogs.
We ensure that each dog is spayed/neutered, vaccinated, tested for heartworms and other parasites, examined by a vet and treated for any known conditions found before adoption. All medical information is fully disclosed to new owners. The dogs are placed in foster homes that provide love and patience to help the dogs adjust before being adopted. Their stays in foster care vary from several days to several months, depending upon the dog's condition and needs.
Unlike shelter or kennel living, fostering in a home environment allows the personal evaluation of each dog for behavior and temperament issues. We learn how our dogs react to other animals and children, if they are housetrained and what type of home/family would be best suited for them.
I rescued a Shih Tzu via Florida Little Dog Rescue, and I want to help other Shih Tzus be rescued and give the love to other recipients of the love of a little dog who has found a forever home. It is a gift beyond compare! I want to help others get the love and fulfillment that I get from my rescued Shih Tzu...she could help other rescued dogs realize that they could trust humans again...only a rescued dog could do that! She did not trust humans, but after 14 months, she does trust us again and she could share that with another rescued pup! Being with another rescue would be even better than being alone at a rescue facility. My rescue (Dixie...born Nov. 2008 & adopted April 2010)has learned to trust and love humans again and she could share that with an abused Shih Tzu. I mention Shih Tzus because I have had a Shih Tzu since 1994 and I understand the grooming needs of the breed..most people do not understand the responsibilities of owning a Shih Tzu.I have kept them all in full coat
