Rescue Me ID: 14-10-24-00545Lily (female)

Maltese    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Lily has been a part of our family for over 5 years; since she was just a few months old. Unfortunately, since the birth of our first child, she began to regress. Over the years, it has developed into severe separation anxiety. With two young children and a third on the way, I fear she is only going to continue to detriorate. She has honestly become more than we can handle. As much as it breaks my heart, we will have to part with her. But, we know that she deserves a family that can tend to her throughout the day. She loves company and to snuggle. Lily is a very smart and loyal companion and we want to find her the perfect home for ... (Read More)her. If you feel that you can help her, please contact me.

Maltese Mix    Age: Senior

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

    Gracie is a very cute malti-poo. She is about 10 years old and weighs 14 pounds. Gracie is being fostered in Leesburg, FL. Gracie is such a sweet, loving girl. Gracie and her foster mom and dad just can't believe that she has not been adopted yet. There is no better, quieter, sweeter dog around. True she is not a yorkie, and has no yorkie in her, but she is such a pretty, happy little girl. She would just be the most perfect pet for a senior who wants the best friend anyone can have. For a senior dog, Gracie has a lot of life in her. She will sit with you all day, but she loves to be active and get out and walk with her foster mom and dad. ... (Read More)Gracie has come such a long way. She knows she gets eye drops twice a day and is so good about it. She will sit on your lap and let you open up her one good eye for you to put the drops in. Her eye drops are not that costly, at less than $25 a month. It is such a small amount compared to the love she will give back. Gracie gets special Rx food which is easily purchased at the vet. This food costs no more than any other good quality no grain food. Please don't let the eye drops and food scare you away. Gracie is so worth this little cost, and she wants you to know that your love and kindness will be priceless to her. Gracie is house trained, walks nicely on a leash, is a great eater, does great in the car, gets along with other dogs and even with the cats. She is a bit of a toy hoarder. She will gather up all the toys and put them in her doggie bed. She also loves walking around with a toy in her mouth. She will play tug with that toy too, if you play with her. Gracie wants to go to her forever home so badly. She hopes that you will find it in your heart to take her in and make her your forever loving companion. She is waiting for you to come and get her.

Personality: Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant

    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.

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.

    Maltese are unusually prone to playing in puddles. Maltese are believed to have been brought home from the Crusades by returning English knights.
