Rescue Me ID: 17-07-24-00659Alief (male)

Maltese Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    OUT OF STATE ADOPTIONS: We do allow out-of-state adoptions for dogs, however, the adopter MUST come to Houston to get the dog and take the dog home with them. We do not allow our dogs to be shipped. Also, our puppies can only be adopted to the immediate Houston vicinity as it takes 4 months to get them completely vetted at our vet here in Houston. We will not allow our dogs/puppies to be adopted out of the area without being spayed/neutered. We spay/neuter puppies at 4 months old. Hello! My name is Alief. You see, I was dumped off in a neighborhood because my owners didn't want me anymore. Then the best thing in the world happened. K-9 ... (Read More)Angels came to the rescue! My foster mom says I'm one of those fancy hypoallergenic designer breeds. Who knew? When she got me I was a little matted because my hair is oh so fine. I have such charming good looks she thought I was a mal tese mix and did her best to groom me without cutting off all my hair. She's been on 'the google' and phone a lot lately talking to people about me. She tells me that I'm kind of a big deal and not to feel sad that my past owners didn't want me because I am the most SPECIALIST boy in the whole wide world and I'm going to find the best forever home real soon! Alief is a male Maltese/ Chinese Crested Powder Puff. We estimate him to be born around 4/1/2017, weighing in at about 14lbs, as of July 24, 2017. I cannot stress enough what a special little man Alief is. He is the sweetest thing and deserves the best home. He's a puppy, so is still active, but loves to cuddle and doesn't need too much exercise. He sleeps through the night in his crate without a peep and is mastering the whole potty thing. I swear I have only heard him bark twice! He gets along well with his 23lbs foster brother, but would probably do better with a smaller dog or would do great by himself. Children - will work best with older children who wouldn't be too rough with him. Alief will not be at the adoption center as he has not had his 2nd round of shots, but K-9 is taking applications. We anticipate Alief to have a lot of interest, so get your application in ASAP and if approved you can have a home visit and meet the little man. PUPPIES: Young puppies that have not had their second round of puppy shots will not be at the Adoption Center for our weekend adoption events. If you are interested in adopting a puppy, please fill out an application on our website If your application is approved, a meeting can be arranged. Also, we only adopt young puppies locally due to the 4 month time frame it takes to get them fully vetted and altered. SPAY/NEUTER: As we believe proper healthcare of one's pet is a requirement of good ownership K-9 Angels Rescue only adopts out dogs that have been fully vetted. If the dog being adopted is not already altered at the time of their adoption, the dog will be altered within 2 weeks of adoption at our vet at our cost, with the exception of puppies which will be altered as soon as the puppy is ready. NOTE: All dogs are officially the property of K-9 Angels Rescue until they are altered by our veterinarian. Please LIKE and share our Facebook page: (Less)

Maltese Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Tempie! She is a Poodle mix, possibly a Maltipoo, around 2 years old. This sweet girl was abandoned and longs to be loved and spoiled. She was found with overgrown and matted fur, but luckily no visible signs of injury. It took her several weeks to make a single peep. She would try to bark, but it sounded like she had no true bark. But after care and attention, she regained her bark. Tempie may have had some trauma to her bottom area, because she walks and runs with a little bit of a waddle and a curved back. However, it does not get in her way and she shows no sign of being in pain! Tempie does have sensitive skin, but she is ... (Read More)heartworm negative - YAY! She has been around kids in her foster home and seems to be playful, but occasionally nipped at their feet or hands, so would do best in a home without small kids, or even an adult-only household. Her foster home does not have any other pets, but when Tempie visited with other animals she became playful, but quickly tired of it and became somewhat irritated. We believe she can be tailored to the right multi-dog family with time and maybe some training. She really is as sweet as can be and just wants to find a family of her own. Please consider adopting Tempie! Apply to adopt at - Thanks! (Less)

    Sophie is a sweet little girl that loves to follow people around. She loves to snuggle at night, and enjoys sitting next to someone on the sofa. She LOVES, LOVES, LOVES playing outside and watching squirrels. She runs to the fence and checks several times a day to see if there are any squirrels running along the top. She gets along well with other dogs her size and will play non stop! We hope to find her a home with another dog to play with. We are not sure of her mix but believe she could be a Pomeranian/Westie mix.Sophie is about a year old and weighs 13 pounds. Sophie is shy at first but doesn't take her long to come around.
