Rescue Me ID: 16-05-07-00042Miley (female)

Maltese Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Miley is a 7 year old, female, Maltese/poodle mix. She is current on shots, has been spayed, and has tested negative for heartworms. Miley and her baby(already adopted), came into our rescue after they were surrendered to a local shelter by her former 'owner'. Poor Miley was extremely underweight, matted to the skin, cover in urine and feces, as well as several mammory tumors. All the tumors were removed during her spay surgery and were benign. Miley was scared, sad, and confused. Our guess is she was used a breeder and discarded when they no longer had use for her or finally noticed her tumors. This poor girl was in such bad condition, the ... (Read More)vet had to wait until surgery, while she was asleep, to cut her hair. She had tore skin and several irritated places from the fur being stuck to it. She spent 14 weeks at our vets office, and has now been released in good health, and is ready for a family to show her the love she desperately deserves. If interested, please contact us for an application. Our rescue does not go by a first come, first serve basis. We process the applications that come in, and choose the best home for each dog. However, we also do not hold dogs. They are ready to be adopted now. After a dog is adopted, we can then rescue another dog in need. Thank you for choosing a rescue dog. (Less)

Animal ID: PPR16-32Zeus (male)

Maltese Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi humans! My name is Zeus. I was surrendered by a family in Anna, Ohio. I was living with another un-neutered male and un-spayed female and my owners complained that both of us guys marked too much. I am living in a foster home in Beavercreek with two spayed females and my marking behavior has decreased significantly. I was just neutered on 4/28/16, so the indoor marking should decrease or stop completely. I don't have an issue with wearing a belly band if marking remains a concern. Otherwise, I am completely house-trained. I am heartworm negative, vaccinated, and microchipped. I do have some teeth issues and just had a ... (Read More)dental at the vet where 18 teeth were extracted. I have only 8 teeth left, but the vet says those teeth are clean and strong and after my mouth heals, I should be able to chew on dental chews to help keep my remaining teeth. For now, I have to have soft food'| my favorite food is hamburger, but I also like cheese and ice cream. I am not destructive'| I don't chew on things like your furniture or your rugs. I am a little messy'| when I go outside, grass and leaves stick in my fur (this really annoys my foster dad, but my foster mom says a shorter hair cut should fix this). Because of my breed, I do not shed and am considered hypoallergenic. I have a lot of energy and am a happy guy. I dance in circles when I am really excited, like when it is time to go outside or go on a walk. I am good walking on a leash, but I do pull a little and I may snort if I get overexerted (most likely due to my short snout). I am not dog-reactive, but I can be a little dominant when meeting new dogs, so caution is recommended. I am very good in the car; I don't get car sick and I don't bark. I am not very interested in toys or playing with my foster sisters (Chihuahuas), but I love, love, love being outside. I would be happy laying in the yard all day watching what is going on outside. I am not too wild in the yard (I don't chase squirrels or birds), but be careful'| I am an escape artist. I am smaller than I look and can shimmy through a 4' opening (not to run away, but to explore or interact with people or dogs). So, a really good fenced area is important. I will bark at people walking by, but my foster mom thinks that my bark is not very loud or annoying. I know my name and I come when called most of the time. I am ready to find my forever home. I would love a family that would allow me to sleep in bed with them. Because of my marking and dominant behavior, it would be best that I not live with another male dog. I would be OK as an only dog. Because of my small size, it would be best that live only with children who are old enough to be gentle with dogs. My foster mom says that she is going to miss me bunches because I am so sweet, friendly, well-behaved, and absolutely adorable. If you have any questions please contact my foster mom at the link found at Fill out an application if you are interested in adopting me - you can find those at %A0(Email my foster home and let them know an application has been sent so they can make sure it arrives!) I just can't wait to find a forever home!%A0 Thanks!!! (Less)

It takes him awhile to settle down in a lap for a cuddle and he's a little wary of strangers, but not for long. The other dogs all like him and he is especially fond of the Yorkies, Princess and Cammie, with whom he likes to sleep. It's hard to believe that he is the same dog as the one in his intake pics! He is a sturdy, fluffy white bundle of energy and happiness now! (Less)
