rtl8812ftv isn't standard, so will need a driver compiled. I couldn't find source code to compile, so you may be out of luck. Are you sure of the model? Please plug in that adaptor & run lsusb. Also, we always need to know which kernel (uname -r) & puppy version you are using.
* Edit: is rtl8188ftv not 8812 - < mybrainfade />*

I have both RTL8188FTV and RTL8188CU.

RTL8188CU is working,
RTL8188FTV is not working.

As I have to download over 600mb to make each driver & the source says kernel 4.15 minimum, I made just the bionicpup64 one, kernel 4.19.23.
Download .pet, open it with roxfiler, wait a few seconds & then plug in usb adaptor. Should be detected.

@melon - your source wouldn't compile. I didn't have any of the pups you wanted drivers for so to download was over 600mb each. You could swap the 4.19.23 kernel into Xenialpup64 (just boot from another pup, swap in vmlinuz & zdrv files, rename zdrv then reboot).
I did have lxpupbionic32, using 4.9.163-lxpup-32-pae kernel, so have made a driver for that. If not in your pup, could swap in that kernel.
