Cupcake's Story...
This incredibly sweet girl has had a hard time. She was a puppy mill dog and was rescued by a lady who now has cancer and is dying. She gave Cupcake to a young mother and although she never offered to bite, the children just made her very nervous. Loud men also make her very nervous. Cupcake is just looking for a quiet forever home where she will be loved and be safe. A home with a single woman or a quiet couple. Cats and a calm dog would be fine but no children. Again it is not because she would bite it is just because she needs calm. She is spayed, UTD on shots, HW tested negative and is housetrained. If no one is home she will go on a potty pad next to door. For all that this little girl has been through it's hard to believe how unbelievably sweet she is. Cupcake is about 4 or 5 years old and weighs about 8 lbs. If you would like to make Cupcake your new forever family member, please contact or

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cupcake, a Washington Maltese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maltese for sale in Washington, or seeking a Maltese dog from a breeder in Washington.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Washington already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Washington breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Maltese breeders who help with Maltese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Washington paves the way for another one to be saved.
