Maltese Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    SAY HELLO TO PETUNIA! Petunia is a precious little Shih Tzu / Maltese Senior girl. Weighing in at just 11 pounds, Petunia came to us after being dumped by her owners down at County Animal Control to be euthanized. Unknown to Petunia, this sweet little girl who is never without a smile and always with her tail wagging was to euthanized for mammary masses and dental disease. As we pulled her from her date with death, her tail was still wagging as she trotted right out of there and was brought to the safety of our rescue. She was then brought in to our Veterinarian, evaluated and set up for surgery and a complete dental. We are happy to ... (Read More)report, her masses were removed, her teeth were done (several removed) and her health check is wonderful! Petunia is a bright and spunky girl, and she acts younger than her age of 9. We believe very strongly that she was guessed to be 11 or 12 by County ONLY because of the poor condition of her neglected teeth and mammary masses. Her eyes are very bright and clear and she bounces around effortlessly. We feel very strongly that she was over aged and is probably about 9 or so years of age. Again, she is so playful and acts much younger than her years! Petunia loves everyone she meets. She's a joy at her foster family's home. She gets on well with her mates and would do fine with another close to her size and personality. Petunia walks very well on the leash and is a little lady as she rides shot-gun in the car. She is housetrained, however will need gentle guidance and praise until she adjusts to her new surroundings and getting to know her new family's routine as to what to do and where to go. She would thrive with a family that has a quiet home or a family that has older teens .. families with infants, toddlers or kids under the age of 12 will not be considered. Petunia is a longer coated breed that will require weekly brushing as well as routine professional grooming every 8 weeks. Petunia's adoption fee is $ 300.00. This fee includes her Veterinarian visits, labwork, spay, complete professional dental, mass removal, all vaccinations including rabies and bordatella, de-worming, microchip and professional groom.

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Simon! He is a 2 year old male Maltipoo weighing at 12lbs. Simon was surrendered by his previous owners because he did not get along with children. Simon came in extremely matted from head to toe, very nervous and clearly presented being uncomfortable and stressed. AZSDR worked with him, being able to have him understand that he can trust people. Simon then went to the groomers where he got shaved and has made a wonderful transformation! Simon sometimes is still unsure at times, especially with strangers but is getting better every day. Simon does well with men and women, but it is important he go to a home with no young children. He ... (Read More)may do well with older (16+) mature children, but will still need to do a meet and greet. Simon likes to play with other dogs; however he can be dominant and selective and will need an introduction with any other dogs in the home, as well as a kitty-free home. Due to Simon's past, he may still need some training on being fully housebroken, and he is eager to learn all kinds of new things. Simon would do well in either an active or low active home, and would do best with a patient family who has lots of time for this sweet boy. His adoption fee is $220. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and vet checked. His adoption comes with 30 days of free pet insurance and a free vet visit. To do a meet and greet, come to the rescue location at 1102 W Hatcher Road in Phoenix AZ 85021, open Tues-Sun 11 am to 6 pm. Give us a call on the weekends for location as we have offsite adoption events that some of our dogs attend; 602-944-2440. (Less)

    SAY HELLO TO CHIPOTLE! Chipotle is an adorable pure white Maltese Poodle Mix boy who at 2 years old, is really still a puppy. Weighing in today at just 10 pounds, Chipotle came to us as a stray, but clearly had not been treated well in the past. He will need a new family with patience to work with him. He is fearful of many things and needs lots of exposure to the world. He's a bit of a crybaby but not a biter. Chipotle is a little timid at first when meeting strangers for the first time, but does warm up when he sees they mean him no harm. With moderate to high active personality, he would probably be good with pre-teens as he is ... (Read More)still very puppy like, as long as they were gentle and both understand and respect his small size. No applicants will be considered with toddlers or little kids under the age of 12. Chipotle does not like being crated but does tolerate it if he can't see you. He is doing well on a leash and loves to go on his walks. He has great potential to be the best dog your family has ever had! He just needs some TLC and exposure to new social environments. Chipotle is a longer coated breed that will require regular weekly brushing as well as regular professional grooming every 4 to 6 weeks. Chipotle's adoption fee is $450.00. This fee includes his Veterinarian visits, neuter, all vaccinations including rabies and bordaella, de-worming, microchip and professional groom. (Less)

Maltese Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed 

    Misty & Ginger were driven to a Phoenix neighborhood in a white car, carried out to an alley in a cage, and set beside the trash dumpster in the heat, in the direct sun... all caught on a neighbor's surveillance video. Thanks to a neighbor who spotted them in an alley, these two were taken in out of the heat and were rescued through Pathways. They were adopted together a little over a year ago but sadly, the family's new baby is highly allergic so they're having to give up the dogs, and Misty & Ginger (now Roxy & Sammie) have lost what they thought was their forever home. They're now about 3.5 years old -- and as loving as can be. Misty (the ...

Ginger (tan) is likey a long-haired chi mix -- use to like to sit on Misty and was sort of a security blanket for her sis. Gingie shows off with her little prance and seems to think she's the cutest pup on the planet. :) Both girls are spayed, up to date on shots, and are microchipped. These two are ADORABLE and are surprisingly happy with the world. They just would like a home now where they can wake up and be loved like they've been by their first adopters who cares for them so much. Their adoption fee is $300.00 for the pair -- they will not be separated If interested in meeting these special girls, please email for an application. (Less)
