Princess is a senior, her estimated age is 10 years old. She is responding well to eye medication and her eyes are more clear every day, she will always have trouble seeing but that's not stopping her. If you would like to be part of a real rescue effort and give this sweet girl the forever home she deserves, call audrey 484-844-0374 thank you!

Maltese Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Hi there! I'm Douglas! I'm 18months old which makes me technically a puppy but I think of myself as a 'young adult' really. I am a Malti-Poo which is part Maltese, part Poodle. I have a little apricot coloring in my hair which is from my poodle heritage apparently. I am a happy-go-lucky, chirpy little fellow who is always happy to meet people and dogs. Don't know any cats socially but I'm so easy going I can't see there being an issue. I have a sunny disposition and a willing nature. I am potty trained, crate trained and obedient although I do like to play and goof around at the appropriate times as well. I haven't had much experience ... (Read More)walking on a leash so a little strolling around the block would be nice and I think I'd like to do that, talk about my day and your day and just catch up with the news in the neighborhood. I'm quite a fashion guy too so I'm sure I'd really rock a harness. I am healthy and take care of myself. I have really great teeth - the dentist actually used the word 'exemplary'. boy was I proud! I am neutered, up to date on my vaccines, up to date on my heartworm prevention, flea & tick prevention and have license, tag and micro-chip. So I have a lot of stuff. But I don't have you, and a home of my own yet. So please give me a call. My bag is already packed waiting.... (Less)

Maltese Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Chico is an adorable little guy with a not so adorable history. His family never took care of him and he was so matted that his skin was bleeding, his eyes were infected and he was terrified. It took 10 hours to get him cleaned up. He is very fearful and was never loved or cuddled. He will require a patient, loving person to show him life can be good but we know he will come around with the right person. We do not recommend Chico with children at this time. Please open your heart and show this guy some love!

Maltese    Age: Senior

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

    ****Prince Charming is a very LOVING dog that requires Love & affection, & he thrives!!! I am not a dog person, I just don't like animals. My daughter couldnt keep him in her apt. so she gave him to me 10 years ago. Prince is 12 years old but acts like an excitable puppy when you come in, he is excellent with children!!! He loves the kids or anyone that looks at him he will jump on you lap & not leave your side. He follows you everywhere. I have tried to take care of him, but with my health issues I can't any longer....This last year he has been peeing as he walks, or when someone comes over, & pooping as he is walking, when he gets ... (Read More)excited. I took him to vet they did testing for UTI & crystals but it was negative, so he took 2 rounds of antibiotics, but it really didn't stop it, I think that is where his age is showing. I have had 10 abdominal operations cut from side to side or top to bottom, & a horrible back that they need to or want to try surgery, I cant take care of him anymore, if someone would walk him several times a day, he would be good!!! We have a doggie door so he can go outside when he wants, or He goes to the front door & goes in circles to go outside, so he can get a treat. I am leaving for a month July 19th & need to find a good home for him to live out the rest of his life. I can't do it with my health bending is not an option without severe pain. Prince is hypoallergenic, He is an awesome loving dog, that wants attention!!! He LOVES children & has never bit He has had other dogs living with us but been an only dog for most of his life He is a good watch dog cuz he barks when he hears noises. He needs a home that doesn't have carpet, so if he has an accident pees or poops it isn't ruined. He needs to be groomed every 5-6 weeks (Less)
