Ella's Story...
Hi---My name is in Ella Enchanted.....because I am totally enchanting when you meet me! Aren't I THE prettiest little Maltese you have ever seen? One of the nice ladies with Mutts Matter Rescue came and got me out of a humane society when they contacted MMR about me. You see, I was really, really scared there, and even though I was safe, they knew I needed some one-on-one attention that a MMR foster home could give me. I am around 7 years old, and the people who turned me into the humane society said they'd bought me off of Craig's List for $25!!!! They didn't realize that I was probably a backyard breeder or puppy mill survivor, and when they realized I was not housebroken, they didn't want me. I was deserted again, which made me even more stressed!! I am a gentle soul, and now that I am spayed, up to date on vaccines, and had a nice dental to make my teeth all pretty, my body can begin to heal. I have slowly been learning how to play and trust again. In the short time I have been in MMR, I have already shown signs of my true self. I will lean out to sniff your hand and maybe even give you a kiss, but I will stay at arm's length until I get to know you. I do not have an aggressive bone in my body, and am tolerant of other dogs, and am just learning to be playful. I am learning how to "be a dog" and with the love and understanding I am getting in my foster home, I am making progress!!! Stay tuned for updates. Ella needs a calm home environment. ***NOTE: Ella will only be placed in an all adult home, or one with understanding teenagers. Applicants with Maltese experience will be given preference.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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