Maltese    Age: Young Adult

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

    MacKinley is a very sweet Maltese. He is high energy and very loving. He is currently in a home with 4 teenagers and 4 other pets (2 dogs/2cats). He doesn't get the attention he deserves. He needs consistant contact as he is not 100% house trained. We believe if he was given the attention he required this would no longer be an issue.

    Scooter is a cool dude who has places to go! That's because he's now been rescued from a horrible situation - he was hit by a car over a year ago, leaving him paralyzed, and his previous owner just left him with no vet care to drag himself around a concrete patio. He's now safe in rescue, vetted, and has a brand new pair of wheels he loves to zoom around on! Scooter is looking for an adopter or foster who is understanding of paralyzed pooches (he has paralysis related potty issues that must be managed). He's FULL of LOVE! Please SHARE him to give him the chance he deserves! #nopawleftbehind #adoptdontshop #rescuedogsofinstagram #rescuedog ... (Read More)#specialneeds %9D%A4%8F%90%BE%9D%A4%8F (Less)

Animal ID: 16-172Lambchop (male)

Maltese Mix    Age: Young Adult

    Initial Bio 12-3-16 Meet Lambchop. Lambchop is an adorable, slightly overweight Malti-poo. He is 4 years old. Lambchop is being fostered in Largo, FL. Lambchop's adoption fee is $350 and includes all vetting (neuter/spay, dental cleaning, immunizations, microchip and chip registration). A Vet reference, personal references, and home visit are required for adoption. You may apply to adopt Lambchop by going to our website at and completing the adoption application located on our home page. Hi, it's me Lambchop. What I would really like from Santa is a new forever home where I will get lots of love and ... (Read More)attention and I will be sure to give back love and kisses too. I sent Santa a letter to the North Pole and told him that I wouldn't mind a new brother or sister, but just one so that I can get the attention I love. I had a really bad weight problem but I am slimming down nicely and would like a home with people who will take me on lots of walks and help me to lose just a few more pounds. I say I'm just more to love! I am on thyroid medication and allergy medication, but my thyroid medicine dose has already been lowered since I have lost over 5 lbs. Yipppeee. I will be going back for my checkup in a couple of weeks and hopefully get more good news. My favorite things to do are going for walks, and if I get tired I go in my doggie stroller and just enjoy the scenery. When I go for walks and get tired, I will just plop down right there and not move until my foster mom asks me if I want to go in the stroller. Then I get up and run to it. I love to be outdoors in the fresh air whenever I can, even if it is my screened porch. I love to go on car rides too. I like to play with other dogs and meet new people. I have lots of toys that I really have fun playing with, especially my monkey that has three squeakers in it!!! I walk on my hind legs. I can take about 5 steps like a fuzzy bear when I want to be picked up, go in the car, or when my foster mom puts my harness on. I can be a real ham. I am pretty much house trained but I occasionally will have an accident in the house. When my foster mom goes to work I mostly go on the potty pad she leaves for me. If you like to go on long walks and take me on car rides I would be so happy to be your very special boy. You have to keep me on my diet until I lose a little more weight so I can stay healthy and live for a long time. Please fill out an adoption application for me and make my Christmas wish come true. Love, Lambchop (Less)

Maltese Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Clyde is pictured on the right. Clyde came from a house where he was neglected and left with no shelter. He started off fearful but has turned into a total sweetheart now that he knows he can trust humans. Clyde is house broken and loves walks. He loves to give kisses and gets along with anyone. We want Clyde to be adopted with Bonnie, our Schnauzer. They were rescued together and love to be together. This is a pair of dogs that will bring love into your home, but they will need some special attention and some extra time to adjust. Bonnie and Clyde need someone to let them in to their hearts and give them a second chance.

    Bonnie is as cute as her picture shows! A senior lady ..maybe 8-9 years old, it's a guess when they come into the rescue most of the time. She's soft, white as snow and a sassy little lady. She is completely vetted, with all her vaccinations up to date. She is spayed, HW tested and heart worm free, micro chipped and she has had a dental . Bonnie had really bad teeth, infection and needed minor surgery to repair some gum issue . Once the dental was completed Bonnie had lost all her teeth, thus the tongue hanging out. She does not appear to be a dog that has had a lot of training, we are working on the house training and she's doing well. She ... (Read More)is being taught sleeping in a crate is ok too, as well as being outside in a yard. Bonnie loves attention and would be a perfect pet for a senior couple. If you would like to meet Bonnie please visit our website at, submit a pre adoption application and we will call you. We DO NOT adopt out of state. All adopters are required a home visit as well as a vet reference before an approved adoption. Bonnie weighs approx 5.5 lbs and her eyes are cloudy but she can see. Her adoption fee is $200 (Less)
