Tanner is a 4 year old male Cairn Terrier/Terrier mix and he weighs about 7 pounds. He came into foster care from a home where his human became ill and overwhelmed and couldn't care for all her dogs anymore. He has settled into foster care nicely and is really coming out of his shell! His foster mom says, "Tanner is very loving little guy. He is full of energy loves to run and play so he will definitely need a fenced-in yard. He gets along well with other dogs so a playful companion would be great. He would do much better with older children in the home and someone who is home most of the time. He likes to chew on sticks and play ball. He will definitely need some toys so that he want chew on things he should not. He is really doing well on housetraining, eats well and is a very happy little guy!" Tanner is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative, and microchipped! He is fostered in the Orlando area, and his adoption donation is $275.

At this time Chihuahua/Small Dog Rescue is unable to adopt dogs to individuals living outside of the Central Florida area (generally defined as within 200 miles of Orlando, Florida). ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 16, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando is holding its first ever Adopt-a-thon, free dog and cat adoptions, at Reed Nissan, 3776 W. Colonial Drive, Orlando, FL 32808, from noon to 4 p.m. this Saturday, October 18, 2014. The Adopt-a-thon continues the Reed Nissan Pet Rescue Project by announcing the goal to adopt 2,000 homeless pets into new homes by the end of the year. Pet Alliance’s full service veterinary department has checked “under the hood” on all dogs and cats for the Adopt-a-thon, making sure each pet is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and equipped with a Pet Theft Detection Device, also known as a microchip.We also know that relinquishment is sometimes the best choice for the animal. If there is no other option available to you but giving up legal rights to your pet, the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando will accept your dog or cat, provide veterinary medical care, nourishing food, water, and shelter. Our SAFER® certified team determines the adoptability of every pet.The Adopt-a-thon keeps going all weekend. In addition to free pet adoptions at Reed Nissan on Saturday, all fees to adopt a pet will be waived at both Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando animal shelters all weekend. The Orlando location is 2727 Conroy Road, Orlando, FL 32839 and the Sanford location is 2800 County Home Road, Sanford, FL 32773. Both shelters are open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and from noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday. . Please bring a collar and leash for dogs or a carrier for cats who are adopted or purchase one on site at all locations.“There is nothing more heartwarming than to see a homeless dog or cat experience his or her ride home from the animal shelter,” says Sean Hawkins, Director of Marketing for the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando. “We call the ride home a #Freedomride and we could not think of a better way to kick-off the year-end Adopt-a-thon than by partnering with Reed Nissan.”
