Missy & Precious's Story...
UPDATED BIO 10-29-08: Missy is still waiting for her forever home. :( Missy is Precious' adorable little daughter - Missy is a malti-poo. She is 7 y/o and weighs 6# - she is being fostered in The Villages, FL. Missy is so deserving of her very own home; it has been decided that Missy can be adopted into a home by herself, and doesn't need to be adopted with Precious. She isn't any trouble at all, sleeps all night long, and gets along with the other dogs in the home. Please consider adopting this little princess.


UPDATED BIO 09-23-08: Precious & Missy are still waiting for their forever home! Missy is Precious' adorable little daughter, who is a malti-poo; she is 7 y/o and weighs 6# - they are being fostered in The Villages, FL. Aren't they adorable? Wouldn't you love to give them a wonderful, loving home, which they so richly deserve? They are very good little girlies who don't cause any trouble and get along with the other pups in the home. Please consider adopting these precious little princesses...........

UPDATED BIO 07-31-08: Precious & Missy are two adorable little yorkie 'wannabe's' that are still waiting for their forever home. Precious is a miniature parti-colored poodle who is 10 y/o and weighs 5#. Missy is her adorable little daughter, who is a malti-poo; she is 7 y/o and weighs 6#. These little girls love to lie in the sunshine outdoors and will let you know when they need to go out. They're not any trouble at all, and deserve to have their own forever home where they can be little princesse

UPDATE 6/28/08 Precious & Missy are two adorable little yorkie 'wannabe's' that are still waiting for their forever home. Precious is a miniature parti-colored poodle who is 10 y/o and weighs 5#. Missy is her adorable little daughter, who is a malti-poo; she is 7 y/o and weighs 6#. Precious and Missy have been together all their lives....and they deserve a home where they can be placed together. These little girlies are playful and are well-mannered. They will let you know when they need to go outside - aren't they smart? Missy is more reserved and timid; but Precious is a lapbaby indeed!

UPDATED BIO 05-15-08: Precious & Missy are two adorable little 'yorkie wannabe's' that are so ready for their forever home! Precious is a miniature parti-colored poodle who is 10 y/o and weighs 6#. Missy is her adorable little daughter, who is a malti-poo; she is 7 y/o and weighs 6-1/2#. Precious and Missy have been together all their lives....and they deserve a home where they can be placed together. They are very, very sweet little girlies who have the best personalities. They are playful and always keep Foster Mom & Dad laughing. They have great manners and only bark if they think someone is 'creeping around' their yard - great watchdogs!

When these girlies had their dentals, little Precious lost all her remaining teeth, which were horribly rotted. The rotting bottom teeth were so badly infected that they had actually begun rotting away her bottom jaw - so sad! But to be sure, she can eat just fine!

Missy was ony left with a few teeth, as her's were also badly rotted; one on the top was so nasty that it had actually eaten a hole in her gums....isn't that pitiful?

They are both feeling much better now that those rotting teeth have been removed, and these little girlies will make someone loving companions. They are so ready to give and receive love. Do you have a tiny little spot in your home that they could call their own?

ORIGINAL BIO 03-23-08: Please meet Missy & Precious - daughter and mother! They are both yorkie wannabe's - Precious is a miniature poodle mix (she's the parti-colored princess) and Missy appears to be a malti-poo - apparently her daddy was a maltese. :) Precious is 10 y/o and weighs 6#; Missy is 7 y/o and weighs 6.5#. Precious and Missy were dumped at a high-kill shelter in South Florida after their owner died. The shelter was beyond capacity and was going to euthanize these beautiful little girls unless a rescue group pulled them immediately. Precious and Missy have always been together and it would be pawsome if they could be adopted together; they can ONLY be adopted into an adult-only household due to their size. They are both very sweet little girlies who are quiet and well-mannered and need a loving home where they can bring happiness and joy to their new forever owner. They both need dentals badly and may lose a lot of teeth, but this certainly doesn't deter them from eating! Do you have room in your home and heart for these special little girlies? The family who adopts Precious and Missy will be very blessed by the love they have to share with you.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Missy & Precious, a Tallahassee Poodle (Miniature)/Maltese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Miniature)/Maltese for sale in Tallahassee, or seeking a Poodle (Miniature)/Maltese dog from a breeder in Tallahassee.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Tallahassee 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 Tallahassee 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 Poodle (Miniature)/Maltese breeders who help with Poodle (Miniature)/Maltese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Tallahassee paves the way for another one to be saved.
