You Can Bet on Lillybet!
Lillybet is a darling 10 year old petite little lady weighing in at only 7.7 pounds. Like some of us older girls, she has a round tummy and really likes her chow! She is very shy but is learning to enjoy tummy rubs and ear rubs. She has a grade 3 heart murmur which is not serious and does not require medicine, but it is important to keep a watch on her figure and not allow her to get overweight. She has luxating patellas in her back legs, more in the right, but they do not hurt her and don't slow her down. She can really scoot if she doesn't want to be picked up! She's very quiet and just likes to hang out near you in a comfy bed. Lillybet is working hard on her housetraining but will need continued support.
She sleeps through the night and often has to be coaxed awake in the morning at which time she likes her ears rubbed. Lillybet has been fully vetted and microchipped. They don't come any sweeter, and she has many years left to give all her love to someone special. If you take a chance on Lillybet, it will pay off big time!
She had a very high liver count that would not go down with meds so they did surgery.  They removed her gall bladder and took biopsies to test for cancer.  She is cancer free, but they found that she has hepatitis.  We are now treating that with meds.  If that doesn't work, the vet doesn't believe that there is much else they can do.  She is still not acting sick or as though she is in pain.  Here's hoping that the meds work for her.
LIllybet is waiting for you in Little River, SC.


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.


To be considered to adopt me, please fill out an APPLICATION.


NOTE: SCMR DOES NOT adopt to homes with children under the age of 10 years or homes with Electric Fences.

About SCMR - SC

About Our Rescue Group...

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,

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.
