Health: Vaccinations Current 

    I'm a tiny boy! Only 5 pounds. I am really looking for companionship. My owners used to not have children-since the children have arrived I have not gotten as much attention and I am not happy. I don't really enjoy being around the children at all- I do not bite, but I just try to avoid them as much as possible. I would best be in a home with adults only who have the time to spend with me- I enjoy sitting with my owner on the couch and go for walks. I

    Dear Future Family, My name is Sully and on March 12th I was 6 years old. I know shocking, considering that I look like a puppy! I've been so lucky to have a family that has loved me so much over the past 6 years, but things have changed and sadly it might be time to say goodbye. Mom's friend had good luck in finding her dog a new home on this site, so mom figured that she would give it a try, even though I know that it makes her sad. See, Mom and Dad just had their first baby and moved into a new house. I always lived with my grandparents who are awesome, but they want to enjoy their free time, and weekends at the beach. My gram on ... (Read More)Dad's side doesn't let me come to her house so when my parents leave they have to find someone to watch me and that is not always easy. Usually my grandparents will make it work, or my cousin will watch me. This past weekend they took me to a boarder and I wasn't such a fan of it. Just like humans I have anxiety- when people leave me in the house for too long I get really sad and panic. Don't even think about crating me. I love to be around people, and need space that I feel safe in. They usually put a gate up in the kitchen doorway when they leave (it has to be REALLY high) because despite my size, I'm just like Houdini. When mom was in the hospital having the baby, I even managed to squeeze myself between the bars- talk about scary! I could have really hurt myself. My new family should be home most of the time, and be able to have great care for me when they can't be around. I get nervous meeting new people but can usually come around. Now that I am on my Fluoxitine , my nervousness that has gotten better. I love to lick kids, but being picked up by them can get pretty annoying. I don't require a ton of exercise but like taking walks around the block and chasing balls around. I still have this blue ball that I found at the beach 6 years ago. It's small, and its my favorite. Mom says that she feels bad that she can't give me the attention that I deserve. With a new baby I kind of understand that. I've been sad around the house lately and really needy. Well, that's it for now. Sully the Maltipoo (I only weight 6 pounds) (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-07-00246Jack (male)

Maltese Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs Vaccinations 

    Jack is a well mannered dog. He loves to snuggle. He adores attention and belly rubs. He puts hus paw up to see please. He let's you know he's ready to go outside with a putting his paws on your lap and tapping you. He gives one bark at the door to let you know when he's ready to come in the house. I'm unable to keep Jack where I'm staying. Jack is a very jumpy dog. What I mean by that is if you mistakenly step on him he will snap at you or if you mess with him while guarding his food he may snap. I'm looking for a loving home preferably with adults looking for companionship to ensure a small child don't mistakenly step or pull on the dog. ...

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