Sisterly love! These very bonded 1-year-old sisters have been inseparable since birth. Both are absolutely adorable.

Their family lost their home in Perris, CA and were unable to keep the girls. The family was living in a motel that accepted small dogs. They loved Addie and Ella and tried to rehome them together. Time, luck and finances were running out and they felt hopeless, that is, until they contacted us! With the help of FCIA and a wonderful transporter, the girls are happy, healthy and living in a loving foster home.

When the girls came to us, they looked a great deal alike although their coloring is different. Both were very matted, although Addie was in far worse shape. Unfortunately, we had to shave her but the groomer saved her gorgeous lashes. Their coats are now growing in beautifully! They were given rabies vaccinations, spayed and microchipped at a recent visit to the vet

Addie (silver) and Ella (white) weigh approximately 8 lbs and are a mix of Maltese, Yorkie and Shih Tzu. Addie is the ham and can often be found with a squeaky toy in her mouth. She is constantly taking all of her toys out of her toy box until she finds just the right squeak. Ella is a little more laid back, and if she's not playing with her sister can be found snuggling somewhere. The girls do almost everything together: sleep, eat, cuddle, go on walks, share a lap and love to play together (chase is their favorite game). They are great with other small dogs and were raised with two children 9 and 11 years old which they absolutely adored. They love car rides, are great on their leashes and potty trained with regular walks or outdoor access. If you want to double your pleasure, fun and love, this pair is for you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Addie, a Vista Maltese/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maltese/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier for sale in Vista, or seeking a Maltese/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Vista.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Vista 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 Vista 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/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier breeders who help with Maltese/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Vista paves the way for another one to be saved.
