Maltese Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Sidney! Breed: Maltese Gender: female Adoption Fee: $ I'm special Date into Rescue: 02/2/2012 Reason for being in rescue: Read description Foster location: Charlotte NC Special Needs? YES - Read below Weight: Est 12 lbs Height: Est 11' 8/8/2015 update from foster family - please make sure you read the original information regarding Sidney. Sidney has been with us for three months. During this time, we have lovingly addressed any aggressive behavior and Sidney seems to be settling down in our home. As her description explains, she has gotten very attached to the me but she is doing well with my husband. Once you ... (Read More)get past her behavior, she is an incredible girl. Her coat is beautiful, but very high maintenance. I have heard folks refer to it as a cotton coat...fluffy. She loves to be with us and would love to have a family of her own and be showered with attention. She would love to be the only pet of the family. However, due to her behavior, you need to be very committed. Sidney has all her vaccination updated, blood work done and had a dental. We look forward to continuing to work with Sidney and help her find her perfect forever home! ORIGINAL INFORMATION - The West Tennessee Drug Task Force pulled over a U-Haul towing a minivan on I-40 near mile marker 42 around 11:00am on Tuesday, January 17, 2012. Instead of finding drugs, they found 141 dogs and 1 cat in the minivan and cargo area of the U-Haul without food or water. Members of the Fayette County Animal Rescue were called to the scene, and determined that the dogs were 'being held in conditions that violate Tennessee law.' According to reports at the scene, the animals were tied into cages with zip ties, appeared underweight, and their fur was matted with their own waste. Several animals were not caged, running loose in the U-Haul cargo space. The animals had been on the road since Saturday. This is where Sidney came from. This is the only information of her past that is known, and it is obviously not a positive piece of her history. Sidney's behavior more than reflects a trouble past and it will take a very special person to adopt her. Sidney can be the most wonderful, sweet and loving dog that you have ever met. She will follow you off leash, ride well in your car and keep her crate clean for a few hours at a time. Sidney will ONLY bond with a female, and this is not debatable. She must be adopted to a home who has females living in it only. She will run up to a male (and some women, too) and nip at their ankles, while constantly barking and growling. If she is spooked enough, she will bite and make contact. She is not going to bond with ANYONE immediately, it is going to take some time. Sidney has bitten several people in her time here, but never anyone that she trusts. If you can gain Sid's trust, you will have an awesome little shadow dog. There is a video of her meeting a male and him luring her with treats - when the treats were all gone, she proceeded to bark, growl and back away from him. Her house training is quite frankly pretty terrible. She WILL use the bathroom outside if you keep her on a very strict routine and take her out multiple times a day. If you turn your head, however, and she has to go... she will! Sidney walks perfectly on a leash and even better off leash (in a safe fenced in environment only). Once she bonds with you, she thinks you are the ruler of the world and will give you her entire heart. Sidney is familiar with being in a home as she was adopted once before and it did not work out, through no fault of her own. She knows what it's like to curl up on a nice cozy bed, or in her favorite spot on the couch. She likes to be in a home. Sid gets along wonderfully with other dogs and would be a great companion to your current pet. She would also be fine as an only dog, as she would love to absorb all of the attention, all the time. Sidney does not know any commands but is an intelligent girl who could learn with some training. Who I am seeking: A very, very experienced, patient female. You must be committed to taking things very slow and giving her a minimum of 30 days to get to know you. Absolutely no children in Sidney's life - no exceptions. Age: est birthdate 02/02/2010 Please note - we will not place Sidney in a home with children under 16. Please note - we do not ship dogs. If you are interested in adopting, please take a look at the distance between the foster home location and your location and make sure you are willing to make that trip. To apply, please visit our webpage at and visit the tab on the left that directions you to the online application. Please note that when screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you. (Less)
