Chelsea's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Chelsea's Story...
Chelsea is a 2 year old female Maltese mix. We think she is probably mixed with Shih Tzu because of her coloring. She is an active, playful little munchkin and weighs only 10 pounds. Because of her tiny stature we don't think she is good for anyone with small children. If you look closely at her tail, you will see that it has been dyed PINK. Yes, Pink. This was done by her former owner's groomer. It will wash out with time...

Chelsea was given up by her former owner because she is too active for the family, which consists of seniors with health disabilities.

Chelsea has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and tested negative for heartworms. Her adoption fee is $250.00.

If you are interested in adopting this cutie, please write us at and ask for an application to adopt. We are a foster-home based organization, and the adoption process starts when you submit your application. Once that has been approved, we can schedule a time for you to meet Chelsea.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Atlanta 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 Atlanta 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/Shih Tzu breeders who help with Maltese/Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Atlanta paves the way for another one to be saved.
