Megara (Maggie)'s Story...
Hi there - my name is Megara - you can call me Maggie. I am a 2 year old maltese shih tzu mix girl needing a new and very patient family of my own. I ask you to understand my following profile, as I'm not a bad girl at all - I'm just very scared and haven't had a lot of experience to express this in a healthy manner.

My Foster Mama says I am the biggest cuddle bug you will ever meet. I love sleeping in in the mornings, especially if you have warm and soft blankets I can burrow under. Also if you're under said blanket, I will seek out lots of cuddles! I get so excited too when you come home from work or errands, that I forget I can't bite at your legs and shoes! Sorry - you're just the best part of my day!

I also really like to play - sometimes I get a little rough but I'm just so gosh golly excited to play! I love squeaky toys (I hold the doggy world record for fastest destroyed toy - so if you don't want to test it, please make sure they are the durable kong toys). I love them so much sometimes I forget my manners and may bite you - I'm sorry! They're just so wonderful and I'm afraid I'll never get them back. I'm learning how to play fetch though and that's helping.

I don't like to play with kids, cats, or dogs - all 3 scare me and when I get that scared I sometimes forget my OTHER manners and bite. I know I can overcome the biting habit with time and positive reinforcement, but right now it's just better if I don't have to face them until I'm feeling safe with you. I will take a lot of work - there is no way around that. But I will be worth it (I may be a touch biased on that) because I am still quite young and I REALLY just want someone to love me for me. I'm really a softie, with a big heart in a little dog body. I have a ton of personality - I just need to trust a little more.

I am spayed, current on my shots, microchipped, dewormed, vet checked, and spayed of course! My adoption fees are $300 and if you'd love to love me for me, please fill out the online adoption application at :)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Megara (Maggie), a Edmonton 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 Edmonton, or seeking a Maltese/Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Edmonton.

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