Maltese    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello-My name is Rolo. I am a gorgeous 4 old Maltese mix girl that weights in at whopping 13 lbs. Thank you for stopping by and reading my story. I was found as a stray on the streets of Downey and got nabbed by Animal Control who brought me to this big scary noisy place called 'The Shelter'. Here I was one happy go lucky wanderer and somehow ended in a cage. I was one hot mess. My eyes were crusted, I could hardly see. No one wanted me. One day this lady from Heart To Heart spotted me and brought me home. I am told that I could live with her in Irvine, CA until I found a family of my own. I am a well-behaved gentle, sweet, quite girl. ... (Read More)All I want is to be loved and love you back with all my heart and being. I was not treated very well at my previous home, I was just neglected. But nothing phases me. I am a loving, loyal girl I am leash trained and love going on walks with my Mom and foster bother and sister everyday. I ride in the car like a champ and you won't hear a peep out of me. I am potty trained and always do my business outside. Night time finds me watching TV with my Mom and foster sister. My Mom always puts me in my crate to sleep-even though the crate is not my most favorite place. I would rather be curled up on the couch or sleep right next to my person. I have had all my shots, am spayed and am even micro-chipped. I am all set and ready to find my own family. To top all this-I have the non-shedding coat of a Maltese-which makes me hypoallergenic. So-what are you waiting for? Come meet me-and take me home with you My adoption fee is only $375 and I am worth every penny of it. Contact nimmi.smith@yahoo.com for more information on how to meet and adopt me. (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi - My name is KIP. They say I'm a Maltese puppy who is around 1-2 yrs. old. I just say that I'm one 'lucky dog' cause some nice person found me in the streets and saved me. They tried to find my family, but no one claimed me Maybe it's because I was covered in so many fleas that I had scratched my skin raw and lost most of my hair OR ... maybe my owners just didn't love me. The woman who found me couldn't keep me long so she asked SASDR for help. Not only did SASDR take me in and get rid of those horrible fleas, they continued to treat my skin and give me lots of love while still waiting for my owner to respond. Finally, they were ... (Read More)legally able to begin helping me find a great NEW home. My skin is healed now and my hair is growing back (although it's a little lopsided on one ear). My Adoption Fee is $250 and includes Neuter, Microchip, Up to Date Vaccines and Deworming. Transfer of Registration is $20. If you'd like to be my NEW mom and/or dad, please let the good folks at SASDR know by filling out an online application at www.saveasmalldogrescue.org. Thank you so much! (Less)

    Charlie was impounded at a high kill shelter because his owner was incarcerated. He was in pretty bad shape, very thin and had a long matted and dirty coat. For whatever reason, his owner did not come back for him. We rescued Charlie right before the busy 4th of July holiday when the shelter was very crowded. Charlie is Maltese/Poodle 'Maltipoo' mix, about 3-4 years old, and weighs 7.5 pounds. He does need to gain a pound or two. He is good with most other dogs but likes his space at times too and he has no reaction to cats. He is a little shy at first but once he gets to know you, he will follow you everywhere. He does have some ... (Read More)separation anxiety and cries and barks a bit when left alone. So he would do best in a home where he is not left long hours. Charlie enjoys riding in the car and likes his walks. He is working on his potty training and is almost there. He needs someone to help build his confidence. We will not place him in a home with young children. (Less)

    Petals is approximately 9 months old, she is good with other dogs and cats too. She currently weighs 9 pounds and full grown we think she will be about 12-15 pounds. She has lots of puppy energy and will need plenty of daily exercise, training and someone who has the time for a puppy. She is working on her potty training and leash training. We would like to adopt her to a home where there is another dog as she loves to play and enjoys the company of other dogs. Sorry, NO OUT OF STATE ADOPTIONS.

Maltese Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Everyone of our pups has a story behind them. This little guy's story is sad because it is so unnecessary. Benny is a 13-year-old Lhasa Apso. He has not been neutered. He has a fawn colored coat with medium length hair. He weighs approximately 10-12 pounds. He is a love, loves to snuggle, is obedient, knows some commands and likes to play outside and go for walks and even to the dog park. I am not so sure about that unless you take him to the small dog section. He is 13 and small. So his trusted family is surrendering him because they say he is urinating in the house. They did not distinguish this from being incontinent where he ... (Read More)has loss of his bladder. He is not incontinent, so our suspicion is that they did not take him out enough. (Less)
