Maltese    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Looking for a loving home for this little guy. His owner has had a stroke and is unable to care for him. There are no other family members able to take him in due to living in an apartment. He is very well trained. He does lick his feet right now and that could be because he's been moved around and is a nervous condition. He likes to sit in your lap or next to you for a bit and then sits at your feet. He minds well and sleeps on the floor on his bed during the night. Usually by the bed by my dad or son. Please call if you would like to meet Ribi.

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-26-00106Logan (male)

Maltese    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Neutered 

    Logan is about 4 or 5 years old. He's a good dog the only thing is he pees in the house a lot and we don't have time to train him again. He was good on not peeing but then we kept moving for a while and he started peeing again. He is very good with kids and adults. Any person he sees he instantly wants to go to them and get pet. He doesn't like to play so much with toys, kind of just lay around. He was like this ever since we got him as a puppy. He's a good dog who needs a home who has time to train him. We do love him, we just don't have as much time now like before.

Maltese Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered 

    Jeter's awesome personality will hit you like a fastball! His huge heart and tiny boy will make his new family feel like they have hit a homerun! This tiny little five pound guy's tail never stops wagging, he just loves people! We are not sure of his mix but we believe he is Maltese/Poodle. He had to be shaved due to mats but he will grown out and be even more adorable than he already is! This little guy loves other dogs his size and is playful! Because he is so small, we prefer kids to be at least six years old. We require adopter come to Abilene to adopt, we do not ship.

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-01-00862BELLA in Ft. Worth, Tx (female)

Maltese Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed 

    MEET BELLA IN FT. WORTH, TEXAS! If you would like more information, please contact Connie Lawrence at If you are interested in adoption please fill out our adoption application at Sweet Bella is looking for a forever family to call her own. This five year old, 15 lb. joyful beauty is a Brussels Griffon/Maltese mix. Bella is a happy girl with a winning personality. She is described by her foster mom as sweet, funny, and playful. She gets along and loves to play with other dogs. She enjoys the company of and playing with respectful children. Bella knows the 'sit' and 'come' command, is leash ... (Read More)trained, likes to go for walks, and will bring her toys to you. One of her favorite past times is chasing bubbles. As much as Bella loves having fun she also enjoys sitting in the window watching the world go by, hanging out on the sofa or sitting in your lap. Like the Griffy side of her ancestry Bella likes to stay close by and sometimes underfoot. And, like the Maltese side of her ancestry, her foster mom reports that she doesn't shed. Bella's one weakness and where she will need the most help from her new family is with house training. She can be good about going outside but she has to be watched to make sure she does her business and not just busy having fun. She will need to go outside on a regular basis - a strict schedule and patience are a must. Bella will also benefit, as all dogs do, from regular walks. Bella hasn't had many accidents at all since her foster family started crating her whenever they are gone and overnight. Bella does really good in her crate. She does not whine or bark according to her foster mom and she will head straight to her crate when she senses that she is supposed to. Bella is not crazy about riding in the car though, so her new family should keep this in mind and work with her so she understands riding in the car is a positive experience. It could be she has spent little time in the car and/or when she was in the car it ended with negative experiences - like the dreaded vet visit. Other than the needed help on potty training, Bella's foster mom says she's perfect in every way. Bella is up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed, micro-chipped, heart worm negative and on preventative. We all have our weak spots, do you have the patience to help Bella strengthen hers? Bella will make a wonderful companion for the right family - could that family be yours? Bella is located in Ft. Worth, TX. Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.

    Eros has grown up in a loving family and three other small dogs. Eros is a purebred, and a beautiful animal. He is loving and gentle and would be perfect around adults, but has not been around children. He is an excellent guard dog or alert dog and is fearless. Eros is playful and gently nibbles on the hand to show affection, and sleeps near me at night.I can mail a picture of him, but do not know how to download pictures. Eros will be perfect for older adults who need a lap dog.

At 6 years old and 20 lbs, she had lost her family and was surround by other dogs and the smell of death. Scared and afraid, she could not be moved into adoptions and so was scheduled for euthanasia. No one considered her because she had 3 growths on her back. When I looked at her photo, her eyes called out she wasn't ready to die, she was a healthy good dog, and she wanted someone to love. Went to the shelter and with happy face and waggy tail as we played, I knew I couldn't leave her there so home we came. The growths turned out to be ...
