Rescue Me ID: 17-04-24-00091Lucky (male)

Maltese Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Lucky is an 8.5 year old Maltese. We don't crate or kennel our resident pups, we have them in big, open rooms so it's more of a home feeling for them. Even with this environment, Lucky walked in tight, crazed circles, crying continually. We found out he had been kept in a laundry room for up to 17 hours a day! Walking in a tight circle was probably about all the room he had. Of course he cried! One of our volunteers took him home to foster him and give him one-on-one attention. By the next day, the constant crying and whimpering had stopped. The circling had stopped. Lucky blossomed. You wouldn't even recognize him as the same dog. He's so ... (Read More)easygoing and such a happy guy. Now we must admit, he does still do some circles but now they're pure delight circles! The volunteer says when she gets home, Lucky comes tearing up to her, does a couple of happy circles, runs back to the living room, does a couple more yippee circles, comes racing back to her and there's no doubt in her mind - he's glad she's home and she and her husband laugh with joy too. The fosters have a cat and they get along great. Lucky never had a problem with her but it took her a few days to decide it was okay if he stayed. Now when he goes outside for his walk, she waits at the front door. After his halter comes off, he goes over and gives her an Eskimo kiss. Undoubtedly because Lucky didn't get exercise, he's a wee bit chunky so he's on a diet (and he doesn't much like it - ha). He's just come back from the Dentist. The previous people didn't take care of his teeth so he had to have 5 extractions but he now has a beautiful, pearly white smile. He's a healthy boy with a heart of gold. If you have a heart of gold too, and you're a person who believes this boy deserves a life of love and attention, please fill out an online application. (Less)

Animal ID: 17-04-18-00443Ducca (female)

Maltese Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Ducca's Info... I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs. Ducca's Story... Ducca is an 8 year old Shih Tzu/Maltese mix. Her name is Norwegian for 'doll'. She loves to ride in the car. In fact, she'll sit in the car in the garage because you just never know when you could get a car ride. Sometimes I'll drive up and down the driveway just to put a smile on her face. She is a great snuggler, either as a lap dog or bed partner. She loves being outside, hunting for frogs or lizards. She also enjoys just lying in the sun, 'catching rays'. Ducca likes to be brushed, but is very low maintenance because she ... (Read More)doesn't shed. After her bath and blow-dry, she looks like a beautiful little white puff ball. She is house-trained. She knows commands: sit, stay, down, roll-over. She weighs about 12#. I'm not sure is she's good with kids, as she's not been around them at all since I've had her for the past 6 years. She requires eye ointment in one of her eyes twice daily, to prevent eye 'gunk'. The ointment comes in a tube. Just apply 1/4' of the ointment to her eye twice daily. I always do it at feeding time. I have to move and I can't find a place that will allow me to have more than 2 dogs. I have 2 other dogs, in addition to Ducca. They are elderly and would not be very 'adoptable', so I'm taking them with me. Ducca is small and cute, so she has a better chance of finding being adopted. That is the ONLY reason I even consider giving her up. (Less)
