SissyGirl Could Be Your Special Angel!

This little cherub came to SCMR from a shelter in Louisiana. Somebody hasn't been taking care of this precious sweetheart, so she is heartworm positive and will need treatment starting right away. It will take a month or two to make sure she is heartworm free. SissyGirl is a little 6.8 pound doll and is 9 years old, but she is very spry and bounces around. Sissy may have cataracts and luxating patellas, but they sure don't seem to give her any difficulty getting around! She is being vetted including a dental, and while she is going through her heartworm treament, SissyGirl could use some Angels to watch over her and help fund her treatment. All donations are tax deductible. We will make updates on her progress. Maybe you could eventually be calling her 'My Special Angel.'

She is being loved and pampered in Chattanooga, TN till she finds her forever home.


SissyGirl passed her heartworm treatment with flying colors months ago. Her cataracts have not increased and she sees fine. And to watch her scoot around while her chow is being prepared shows she's still got a lot of spunk, but mostly she likes to snooze. SissyGirl just doesn't seem to catch on about house training. She knows to use a pee pad to poop, but she just doesn't realize she can't tinkle anywhere, so she wears little panties with a pad inside. SissyGirl will potty outside but then come inside and go too, so the panties prevent accidents. It's no big deal, you just change out her little pad 3 or 4 times a day...simple. She will reward you with gentle kisses and all her devotion.



SissyGirl is 10 years old now and still a 6 pound cherub! They don't come any sweeter. SissyGirl has been having a little trouble with her liver enzymes...liver is slightly enlarged. She is going to have a bile duct acid test in a couple of weeks. You can become an angel for SissyGirl with a donation to help cover her vetting costs. Your donation is 100% tax deductible.


SissyGirl aced her bile duct acid test and is doing well! We continue to give her a little Milk Thistle herb in her food though. She's still waiting for her forever family!




Out-of-state adoptions are possible; however, the approved adoptive home is responsible for making the necessary arrangements to pick up their new little one.

About SCMR - TN

About Our Rescue Group...

We are dedicated to rescuing and caring for Maltese and other toy breeds (as room allows) who are either rescued from shelters, found as strays, or no longer wanted by their family.

We are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization so all donations are tax deductible. These little dogs need YOUR help now. SCMR takes in many "extreme-needs" Maltese and our vet bills can be very high. Every little bit helps. Additionally we can always use things such as dog beds, heartworm preventative, flea preventative, harnesses etc. Donations can be made out to SCMR and mailed to:

Southern Comfort Maltese Rescue
PO Box 2005

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our dogs are in wonderful foster homes, throughout the US, primarily in the southeast.. We are sorry, but there is no "shelter" available for you to visit.

We are committed to finding the best home possible for each of our little ones, so that they don't end up in a similar situation down the road. Out of state adoptions are possible. The new owner is required to help with the transportation of the dog though, as we will not ship them. Additionally, all dogs requiring transportation must have a crate or seatbelt harness for their safety.

Can't adopt? Consider being a FOSTER PARENT. All foster homes undergo the same screening that an adoptive home will. You must be committed to the potential lifetime care of the animals and be responsible for helping select and qualify their forever homes. IF YOU CAN FOSTER, please fill out a FOSTER APPLICATION.

Our Adoption Process...

To be considered to adopt one of our babies, please fill out an APPLICATION. A PDF version of the application is also available for download. Adopting any animal takes a lot of commitment. We require an application, reference check, home visit, and adoption donations depending upon the age of the animal and the medical expenses. Each dog has had all vaccinations, been dewormed, heartworm tested (and treated if necessary), dental (if needed), spay/neuter, and any other medical attention he/she needs. The adoption fee helps recover a PORTION of the money spent on each rescued animal.
We need COMPLETED applications; we cannot start the adoption approval process unless we have a fully completed application.

If you do not supply complete information on your APPLICATION, we do not have time to track it all down. Vet contact information on your application is very important, please include it.

PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THE BIO OF ANY DOG IN WHICH YOU ARE INTERESTED SINCE THERE MAY BE ADOPTION RESTRICTIONS. We do NOT adopt to homes with children under the age of 10 years or homes with Electric Fences.

Homes with fenced yards are given preference to those without (all other things being equal).

Please understand that this is a volunteer effort and we all work full time in addition to doing rescue. Any help in speeding up the adoption process is appreciated. We will get back to you as soon as possible.

** NOTE** We do NOT encourage giving pets as GIFTS. However, you may pay the adoption fee as a 'gift' for your special someone, but we will require an adoption application to be completed by the adopter (recipient of your 'gift').

Our dogs come to us from various sources including shelters. We do not always know the full history of the dog, some have come from abusive or neglectful situations. We will share as much information on the dogs as we can with 'approved prospective homes'.

When an application is approved, the home check goes well, and all vet references and application information checks out, a signed and notarized contract is required to finalize the adoption process. MS Word and PDF versions of our Adoption Contract are available for download from our website,
