Rescue Me ID: 15-01-30-00057  (male)

Maltese Mix    Age: Adult

    This little guy was left with two other doggies in a crate for days with just a little food and water!! We got a call asking us to take the three of them immediately before Animal Services would arrive. They were brought to the Veterinarian right away. Little 'Wall-e' is approximately 6 to 7 years old. Even after staying in a crate for so long he is affectionate and loves human attention. He's a sweet little boy who wants just one thing: to be close to you. He is definitely a lap dog! So if you are looking for an independent dog, Wall-e is not the right one because he is going to follow his human friends everywhere! He walks perfectly in ... (Read More)leash and doesn't bark much. Doesn't need much exercise, daily walks will do just fine. Wall-e likes to ride in the car and he's not scared about sounds, cars/trucks passing by or new people. He is the happiest little guy in town! His pocket size (9 pounds) will allow you to bring him everywhere! Wall-e is said to be a mix Maltese and Yorkshire. It is known as a Morkie. The good new is that Morkies don't shed so are Hypoallergenic! He is good with other dogs but we have no way to find out how he does with cats. He just went to the groomer for a very short hair-do, but his fur will quickly grow again so he would look even better with his puffy look! He has a slight underbite which is very cute!! He has a brand new shinny smile since he just got a dental. Feels much better now with a new hairdo as well!!! call Isabelle for more details at 239-281-0739 also available more pics on our site at (Less)

Maltese Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Harlo was an unclaimed stray - a young guy who needed some socialization and manners. He'll probably be a fairly hairy fellow when all his coat grows in- but right now he's only half hairy. He's pretty clean in his quarters, plays like a terrier with the other dogs, doesn't particularly like cats, weighs about 8.5 pounds and wants his human family to hurry up and adopt him. He's neutered, microchipped, heartworm negative, and his adoption fee is $225.

    If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, please go to our website at and complete the online adoption application.

You can see her photos on our website. Snow, the daughter looks like her mom. Klondike looks less like his Mom and probably more like his father. However, his father is unknown. So we really do not know how large these puppies will get. The Mom weighs 10 ... (Read More)lbs. Florida Yorkie Rescue, Inc. (Less)

Maltese    Age: Senior

She definitely had an owner, so I hope your seeing this. :).....Pet was in rough shape, but with some love will be a great pet.

    Hi my name is Harry. I am a 5 year old male terrier mix. I am a great boy. I am a great size for an apartment. I get along with all other animals and people and children. I was adopted years ago. I found my way back to Friends Forever. The owner of Friends Forever Dee Chess got a call from animal control that they had me and she came right away and got me. Dee tried calling the person who adopted me but the number was disconnected so now I am back up for adoption and looking for my forever home that won't lose me like my last home. Won't you open your heart and home to me? If you are interested in adopting a dog please go to our website- ... (Read More) and fill out an online application or call Dee Chess at 786-229-9002. Then email us to check on the status of your application. Please make sure all areas of the application are filled out. This will make the adoption process go faster. You can also come and see some of our pets every Saturday from 10-4 at Petsmart- 13621 S Dixie Hwy, Miami, FL 33176 (Less)

Animal ID: #14-087Dolly (FL) (female)

Maltese Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis 

    Dolly is an absolutely adorable 11 year old 13lb Yorkie mix that is being fostered in the Orlando, FL. Dolly is doing very well in her foster home. She almost never makes mistakes in the house anymore and never #2. She loves to go for walks and car rides. She gets so excited when FM picks up her leash that she hops around like a puppy! She keeps up with her 6 year old foster sister easily. She has lost 5 lbs since she arrived and is feeling much more spry and happy. She does get a glucosamine supplement daily to help with the arthritis in her hips, which is surely helping her stay active and happy. The perfect home for Dolly would be one ... (Read More)where someone is home a lot so she could be let outside frequently and maybe a backyard so she can explore. She really doesn't require any play time, but she does love to snuggle on a lap on the couch and cuddle in bed. She will sleep in her bed at night, as well. She would not do well in a home with kids under 12 as she is slightly sight-challenged and kids move a little too fast for her. In spite of her age, Dolly has a lot of life and love left in her. Please consider this sweet older gal as your new family member. (Less)

Maltese Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Spayed 

    GirlFriend is a retired breeder dog who has spent her whole life in an outside kennel. She will need to be seen by a vet soon because she has a lump on her chest. She is a poodle-maltese cross, but, as you can see in the picture, she clearly favors the poodle. She has never had pups. She will need a smoke-free home. Her new caregiver will be required to have her spayed within two months. She is thought to get along with cats and other dogs. She is 6 years old, 11 lb and shy around people she does not know. She would do best in a quite home without small kids and will need someone who is kind and patient and who will not get angry at her for ... (Read More)making mistakes. With a little love she will make someone a great companion. Will anyone give her a chance? E-mail me if you would like to adopt or foster her. (Less)
