IMG_702322Sarah’s take on Tootsie:

During my visit to Florida for the TDL Reunion I had the opportunity to meet Tootsie. She is a beautiful Chihuahua with the most amazingly sweet eyes. When I walked in, she was scared. Tootsie hasn’t been socialized much, and she is initially afraid of anything new. She has already adjusted life in the TDL pack and grown comfortable, looking to Pink and Rosie for guidance at times when she is unsure.

IMG_7025Initially would not walk near me, she barked, paced, and ran away. Night one she only approached me when the whole pack was getting cookies and she took one nibble and ran. In the morning Gisele put her on a leash and I walked her around. She is still adjusting to wearing a leash but adapted well and after a few minutes she barely noticed it. I took her outside in the yard to give her an incentive to like the leash. I sat down in a chair and offered her treats to come closer, sometimes with small leash cues, sometimes on her own. No sudden movements, low gentle voice, even my words were slow. She needs calm energy, and to know what is happening. Then when she would put her paws on my thigh to get a treat, I slowly moved to the floor and set the treats further across my legs so she had to walk on me to get it.IMG_7009

I practiced putting an empty hand out, and holding a treat in the other so she would have to brush past my hand to get the food, initiating touch. We worked for probably 30 minutes, and it ended with her coming up with no leash tension and standing on my leg (hind legs on the ground). She would not let me touch her body bellow her head but would let me touch her ears. You have to move slowly, slowly, and let her see that you plan to touch her and where. Surprise will make her flee, and moving too fast will scare her. It is the unknown that sets off her anxiety.

IMG_7032
We resumed later that day when I sat in Gisele’s spot on the couch. No cookies, but she did hop up and sit with me. She wants affection, she just needs to know she can trust, and that you will respect her. At one point I did move too quickly and scared her. I would expect a fearful dog to bite me, but she nose bopped me instead. I think this shows her desire to trust you. By the end of the evening she was sitting on my lap, getting a massage and if I patted my chest she would come closer and even kissed me. After just a day and a half and she was on my lap, giving kisses. It is possible but you must go slow and show her “I don’t want to hurt you, I want to cuddle and give you nice things.” She will accept.

The morning that I left Florida, I sat on the other couch and shared bits of my toast with the pack. Slowly, slowly Tootsie joined the fun, and when Rosie moved off of my lap she hopped up and curled up. The real gem of the day was when Gisele’s son Ryan came home. Tootsie had previously seemed to show more fear toward men than women. Not today. She allowed him to sit on the couch beside her, and slowly reach over and pet her. No sign of fear. Tootsie is learning bravery and trust, and is letting her amazing heart shine through.IMG_7068You may be wondering, why is all this worth it? Why would I want to deal with a skittish dog? What is the payoff? She is the payoff. You get Tootsie, a good girl who loves to cuddle and kiss. She is alert and will let you know if something is amiss in the house or outside. She is good with other dogs and would love to be your best little buddy. It doesn’t take long to build trust with her and she is worth every moment of it.IMG_7033

Foo (Aka Mr. Foo Fighter) ~ Adopted!

10274076_10153643013489792_3545052999004508993_n

Foo is an 8 month old Border Collie mix (we think border collie chihuahua as he is currently less than 20 lbs). Life hasn’t been easy for little Foo. He has scabs from being eaten up by bugs and currently has a cough (he is being treated for both right now).

12369249_10153643013624792_168998551917255450_n

Foo is scared. He wants to cuddle, wants to be your good boy, but is still learning it is okay to want all that, and that humans are nice and understanding. He is currently receiving lots of love, positive interactions, and some work on self-esteem. We expect to see him blossom quickly.

Check out his Photos on Facebook!

If you are interested in adopting Foo please read Our Adoption Process for the next steps.

“Tell me I am a good boy?”

12/24/15 Update: Oh goodness, Mr. Foo can’t catch a break….  Not only was he diagnosed Heartworm positive, but now he has some upper respiratory “fun” going on too. The good news is he is in the right place. We have fought off  both before and will do it again.  Foo will be on hold until we clear up the respiratory situation and as to the Heartworm, Foo will begin treatment shortly. Here are some articles we recommend if you aren’t familiar with Heartworm:

Tickle Me P!nk ~ Foster Failure

Tickle Me P!nk (P!nk for short!) is an 8 month old female Chihuahua schnauzer mix who is a little shy but so hopeful. You can just see it in her eyes, a little timid but deeply desiring to fall head over paws in love with someone who will love her just as much in return.

11123026_10205613289146977_2131144220_n

“I don’t know about this….” P!nk

11121881_10205613455071125_972930158_n

“But I do love being loved!” P!nk

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

She comes to us as a stray and will be fostered in Deltona. We look forward to telling you all about P!nk as we get to know her. In the meantime, why not check out her Photos on Facebook?

 4/19/15 Update: As we get to know P!nk we are discovering how sweet and special she is.

We would love to find a home where she might be able to be a companion for a child with special needs, as she seems to have a temperament which would be great for such a child. Calm and quiet, she doesn’t cry when left. She loves to sleep in bed with you and recognizes the privilege. She remains in her little spot all night. Our only warning is that she is small and will escape through small holes in a fence, so the yard must be secure.

11149277_10153089674934792_5794426421225967793_n

 

6/15/15 Update – Today I got the message I half knew was coming. P!NK has been home all along.  She is Rosie’s new playmate and best friend, Di’s little buddy, and has made her self a permanent part of the pack. P!NK adopted herself out, and We couldn’t be more happy that this little stinker will be loved and cherished the rest of her days.

Viktor Krum~Adopted

pizap.com14145158451821

 

Viktor is a 6 month old male Long hair chihuahua. He reminds us of one of the faces of TDL, Rosie, and he is stinking cute!

He comes to us from Alabama, where the shelter had nothing but good things to say about him (you’ll shortly notice a trend)! The shelter stated:

He sits on command. Loves to cuddle. Starving for attention in the shelter.

When Johannah picked him up she stated:

GOOD DOG! Quiet on the ride, walked well on a leash, peed in the grass like a champ. He is top shelf!

pizap.com141451595299112

 

Needless to say Viktor is an attentive people pleaser and cuddle bug. He is not at all growly or snippy.

In fact, the biggest issue you might have is him drowning you in kisses! See his photos on Facebook!

  If you are looking for a pint sized companion, Viktor might be your little man!
