Rescue Me ID: 15-03-04-00136MARIO-URGENT FOSTER (male)

Maltese Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    URGENT FOSTER NEEDED! Mario is a 3 year old cockapoo who came to us an unclaimed stray in horrific condition. He was filthy with an overgrown coat which was severely matted. He needed to be sedated to be groomed. He also had a skin infection. Now that he is healthy and groomed, Mario has been exhibiting guarding issues. We don't know what happened to him earlier in life to make him this way. There are many theories but that would only be guessing on our part since he was a severely neglected stray. He is not doing well at the shelter. We are looking for a foster who has the experience to work with Mario. This should be a home with ... (Read More)absolutely NO CHILDREN AND NO OTHER DOGS. We want to give Mario the opportunity to become well adjusted. If you think you can help Mario, please email (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-06-05-00431Shallbe (female)

Maltese Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Shallbe is a Coton de Tulear (not a Maltese.. but this form did not have her breed to choose from) . She is 10 & 3/4 Years old, 18 lbls, Healthy, Housebroken, Spayed, Up to date on shots & vetting. She is a little overweight but will slim down now that we have her on a limited calorie diet. (She has already lost 2 lbs since we have had her) Although she is healthy she does have some minor issues that require upkeep. 1) She has dry eye, and does not produce tears... so she requires artificial tears - drops 3 times a day. 2) She has some mild allergic dermatitis that is now controlled with Benadryl 2 times a day. Her elderly owner passed ... (Read More)away & the family of the owner could not keep her as they have a pitbull who's not dog friendly. She is also not dog friendly so she needs to be in a one pet household. She loves to follow you around and be petted and give licks... She loves to go for walks! She loves belly rubs and will roll over to get them. But she does not like her tail or back legs to be played with. She may try to nip initially, but is more of a faker... (lol) she tries to nip then licks you... So we prefer someone who is a strong leader. She needs an adult home with no young children under the age of 15 and an EXPERIENCED dog owner and STRONG PACK LEADER that has the patience and know how to help Shallbe with adjusting to her new home. She prefers to be the only pet in the home... She does sniff and wag her tail at some dogs, but will growl and bark and lung towards them sometimes. She also will do this sometimes meeting dogs on leash so she should never be let off leash to play with other dogs! She is really a love when you get to know her and loves to be with her human! She loves to play fetch and tug of war with her toys.... She just needs someone to give her a chance. If you are from the NORTHERN NJ or surrounding area.... Won't you consider opening your home and heart to this little cutie? If you are interested in possibly adopting Shallbe, please fill out our Adoption application at: (Less)
