Rescue Me ID: 15-07-26-00117Sparky (male)

Maltese Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    My name is Sparky and we believe I am a poodle mix pup who is about 1 year old and I weigh approximately 8.6 lbs. My owner surrendered me at a local city shelter and DFWPP saved me. My coat is really adorable when it's grown out, but it was such an awful mess we had to get rid of it all and start from scratch! I love to play and run in the yard with the other pups in my wonderful foster home. I really enjoy playing with toys too! Since I am still young, I will need a family who has the time and patience to help me through my adolescent phase in life. You'll need to make sure I have toys to chew on or I may decide to chew something I'm ... (Read More)not supposed to. I am working on potty training and learning how to use a doggie door. I am super affectionate and love to give kisses. I really want a family to call my own that will be forever this time! If you are interested in adding this pup to your family, please fill out our Pre-Adoption Application. The link to this form can be found on the home page of our website, It can be submitted via email to or faxed to 972-767-4849.

Maltese    Age: Puppy

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

    We bought this cute little Maltese puppy for our son back in December. Since then, husband has a new job working 60+ hrs a week, and I have gone back to work. Feeling overwhelmed and unable to give this dog the time, training and affection he deserves. Smart as a whip, crate trained (still a puppy, so an occasional accident), very lovable and fun. Would make a great family pet - He's great with our baby and adores our son. We do suspect some separation anxiety, as he does not like us to be out of sight, so he was recently placed on anti-anxiety meds. He is up to date on all vaccines and has been neutered. We paid $2K for him - asking $500 ... (Read More)rehoming fee. Food, crate & toys included. Two mandatory interviews will be conducted before we let this guy go to his new home. The first will be in our home so you can meet him where he's comfortable. The second will be in your home so we can be sure he's going to a good, safe place. Please PM with contact info to schedule. Photos available upon request. Seriously inquiries only. We love this guy and want him to be loved even MORE! (Less)

Maltese Mix    Age: Puppy

    Hello friends, my name is Bert and as you can see I am ridiculously cute! I am a Maltese Boston terrier blend weighing 18lbs.

I have lotsa personality and bravado and also love to snuggle. I am not recommended with dogs and cats smaller than me but do fine w ones my size or bigger. If you are looking for love, laughs and adventure, I am your fur ever dude!

Rescue Me ID: 14-12-16-00128Lucky Paws (male)

Maltese Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    NOTE: LUCKY IS NOT A 2 POUND TEACUP DOG... IF THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT US. He is 8 pounds and a tall yorkie, he does curl up easily in your lap. Extremely faithful and wonderful... however, the main problem Lucky has is possessive aggression. He will ONLY WORK in a home with him as the only pet. He accepts people very easily and has shown no signs of aggression with people... BUT with other dogs he becomes something different and will attack with no warning in jealousy. If you can accept this and are just looking for a SOLE DOG who will be your companion... Lucky is perfect. He loves his bonded human and ... (Read More)wants to spend all his time with them. Lucky Paws was found from a post on Facebook with a woman desperate to find him help after finding him after a car accident. He had been with another dog that did not make it, laying bloody in the grass and shaking. From this kindhearted woman... who reached out for help... we raced off to assist him. After being placed with a vet overnight, it was determined that Lucky had a laceration on one leg... and the cause of his pain was a broken toe on the same foot. A very Lucky boy indeed! Being placed on supplements to enable him to return to wellness, he is now doing wonderful and jumping up and down for joy. He is 5-6 years old and a very loving little guy. Lucky Paws loves to be a lap dog and gazes about his new environment with wonder. Having no knowledge of his previous environment... we are pretty sure he was a stray on the street for a while as his skin was dry and flaking... with supplements and good diet he is improving rapidly, his fur growing back nice and silky. Someone who is looking for a forever companion would be an ideal match in either a home or small garden apartment. Breed: Yorkshire Terrier Weight: 8.2 lbs Birthdate: 12-4-2008 (approximately) Bathroom Awareness: Lucky is not housebroken... he is working hard on it and if taken out regularly he will be fine. A dog door with protected small yard would be ideal. Integration with others: He is neutered and able to play with others. However, we have not been able to integrate him with any other dog. Meals: Lucky loves to eat! Training: Lucky is very attentive and smart! He picks up words quickly and aims to please. Walks: Lucky LOVES to walk! He will go exploring on a leash and when you are ready he is more than willing to return home. Bedtime: Lucky is not thrilled with a crate but he will go in for bedtime. During the day he absolutely hates it... he prefers to be out and in his bed or wandering around with you. Adoption Fee: $150, includes current vaccinations, microchip, collar, leash, and of course... Lucky Paws! Beaux's Haven is a sanctuary for small dogs enabling them to find their forever homes. We do operate on donations and would like you to know the adoption fee is a part of helping us save the next and the next little dog. If you would like to donate more, it is greatly appreciated and will be put to good use. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Poor Biscuit was found as a stray so full of stickers and mats she couldn't stand on her paws or lay down in any position. No collar, no tag and no chip...we couldn't find her owner. With a good doggy day spa she was so happy and full of love. She is now completely vetted, is house trained and with good food and lots of love has turned out to be a wonderful love bug. She is about 14 lbs, does well with other dogs but is still somewhat nervous if strangers or children get too close so we are suggesting no children under 8. Her adoption fee is $250 All Schnauzers Etc. rescue dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on rabies, annual shot, ... (Read More)bordatella, microchipped, and any other known medical issue has been corrected. They come with collar, leash, harness, several toys, several days of dog food, their blanket, all their vet paperwork, their remaining year's worth of heartworm pills, and educational material on how to be a good pet parent. Visit our website to see all our available dogs and for application/contract to adopt and then call show contact info with questions or to make an appointment to meet your forever best friend. We are looking for good families that commit to their pets for life. Dawn Conner Schnauzers Etc. (Less)
