Facts about Maskoki

  • Breed: Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Poodle (Miniature) Mix
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate
  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
A lot of people to see Maskoki may mistake him for a Chihuahua mix. Who knows, perhaps there is Chihuahua in there....rescue pups are always such a mystery, lol!....but his mother is a Poodle/Schnauzer mix and the litter all told is terrier-ish in their character. We anticipate he will mature to 20 lbs, but there is no way of telling....momma weighs 26 lbs, although some puppies (including Maskoki) are on the smaller side. He has been raised in rescue from day one and is ten weeks old as of 7/15. This is a VERY sweet boy who loves attention, is playful and interactive, and his temperament is very soft, and he is a sensitive little boy. His mother comes out of a hoarding situation and was very scared when first raising her litter, so they did not receive the best imprint initially. Maskoki has come along superbly, but needs a family who will continue his socialization and positive life experience. He is incredibly tactile and cuddly, loves to rub against your face (a personal quirk, lol!) and has a very gentle manner.

THE RIGHT HOME for Maskoki will be a gentle household experienced with raising a puppy with the time and savvy to commit to them. He loves kids, but is on the mouthy side and too gentle a spirit to be a good fit for homes with smaller children. He has a heart melting sweetness and is impossible not to fall in love with. He will mature to an ideal companion raised right.

Applications are available on the southpawsexpress.org website or via contacting Lucy at maramuser@gmail.com. His adoption fee is $450.

About Southpaws Express

About Our Rescue Group...

Southpaws Express is the brainchild of highly rescue-experienced women, one coming from a southern shelter background and the other from New England breed rescue. We try our best to combine our experience to do right by dogs in high kill shelter regions while paying tribute to the New England protocols that put dog rescue so successfully on the map.

We are, and prefer to remain, small, pulling only a few dogs at a time and offering individualized attention to our prospective adopters. A commonality we share is that we are both "big picture" people, a core belief being that every dog we take in, and every adoption we complete, should move rescue forward. We believe in great ambassador dogs for rescue, happy adopters, and an adoption process that is both experienced and caring. We are not rigid or inflexible, and it is always our goal to build advocacy for rescue. We want you to have a good time!

Be it through adoption, volunteerism or education, we welcome you to our family!

Our Adoption Process...

Southpaws Express is a progressive rescue that prides itself on an intimate, individualized application process. We strive to make it as friendly and personalized as we can, and assist with good matching advice and direction, catered to the individual....the individual dog and adopter. Our application is available on the southpawsexpress.org site, and introductory emails always are welcomed to Lucy at maramuser@gmail.com. Our standard adoption fee is $400 ($450 for puppies), which helps defray the weighty cost of transporting our foster dogs up north from their high kill southern environments and providing an excellence of vet care, but some dogs will be discounted, due to age or exceptional needs.
