Thelma's Story...
Thelma and Louise (probably her sister) were found in a rural area. After a week of unsuccessful searching for the owner, the person turned them over to a rescue for care. Thelma is a young dog, about 1 year of age. She has a wavy, course, white coat of non-shedding hair. She was badly matted when she arrived so she is sporting a shorter haircut on most of her body. She has a beautiful face with big, black eyes and a black nose. Thelma is a very affectionate little, 9 lb dog who enjoys the company of other small dogs and people of all ages. Thelma is a very agile explorer and can easily jump over a 3 ½ ft. door and a scale a fence. She has great potential as an agility dog as she is very athletic. She walks well on leash and enjoys being included in daily activities. She is smart, well behaved inside the home and easily trained. She rides nicely in the car and has lots of good energy for trips to the beach, park, and even hikes. At home she wants to be near her foster family and enjoys snuggling near a person. Thelma is looking for a new, forever home today!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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