Dogs Needing Homes


Breed: Maltese

Age: Adult
Sex: Female
Size: Small
Description: adoption pending

"Sweetie is a 7 year old Maltese that weighs 8lbs. She is a calm and loving dog that fits her name perfectly. She is initially wary of most humans but affectionately warms to people she regularly sees. She has come a long way since we first got her and has become very comfortable around us. She enjoys being with kind people but is also fine being left alone. One of her favorite things to do is sleep next to you on the couch (although she does not jump so you have to lift her up there). She enjoys light play but does not care for rough play with other dogs or young children. Sweetie has been debarked but has a very soft hushed bark left. She also learns well if you take the time to teach her. When we took her in, she would not wear a collar but now she wears one with no problems. She is looking for a loving home that is interested in a dog for companionship."

Sweetie is a retired breeding dog and she is about 7 years old. Her foster home is working on getting her accustomed to a collar and leash since she was not raised with these. She will be spayed, up to date on shots, heart worm tested, wormed, and micro-chipped at the time of her adoption. Her adoption fee is $300.
