Trixie's Story...
If you are interested in me, please visit my site,, read my Policies and Procedures, complete the application and my rescuers will contact you promptly.

Hi, my name is Trixie and I am the sweetest little Maltese girl. I may be 9 years old but I am healthy full of fun and my eyes always sparkle. My foster says my ears look like angel wings. I have learned so much from my foster sisters. I was so shy and scared. My bed is my safe place and you can pick me up and love me when I am in my safe place but you better be ready to give me lots of tummy rubs. My tail never stops and it goes 90 miles an hour. I like cats and other dogs. I will take food from your hand now and I will let you give me back rubs and neck scratches. I used to cringe when people touched me. I know what "Go outside means: And that is what I do. I follow my foster mom around all over the house and never let her out of my sight, but I am happy doing that and I am not comfortable yet being a lap dog. I went for a spa day and my groomer said I was so good and so social and sweet. I am ready for someone to spend the rest of my life with me. I need a quiet home and no children under 10 years old. Please ask for me on your application and I promise lots of love.

Love, Trixie 011815-37

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Alamosa 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 Alamosa 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 Alamosa paves the way for another one to be saved.
