THIS IS MAGGIE---
We believe her to be a Maltese mix, hypo-allergenic - about 2 years old and full grown at about 7 lbs. (At full weight, she should weigh a couple pounds more).
She was SO matted and knotted, she could not lift her head or walk with ease. Her mats were to the skin and so thick, she was a captive in her own coat. Her nails were unbelievably long and she is so severely malnourished her bones are VISIBLE.
THOSE DAYS ARE OVER. She is now in our care - has been bathed, shaved down to remove all the mats - vaccinated, blood tested and will soon be spayed & micro-chipped.
What a sweetheart and snuggle bug. All she wants is to be touched and on your lap. She has a hearty appetite and appears to be housebroken. She is dog & kid friendly - but no clue about cats. But based on what I have seen of her so far, I somehow think she would be OK with them.
She is soon to be spayed and chipped - and is waiting for her new forever home.

Adoption fee: $300
NOTE: Adoption fees are applied towards the vet bill: Exam, blood tests, vaccinations, fecal, worming, spay/neuter, and microchip. There is rarely anything left over, but if that happens, the monies get applied to the next or previous pet - who may have had to have an x-ray, be groomed or have a dental.
