Mindy (Lil Mama)'s Story...
*We will only adopt within a 60 mile radius of Chicago, IL*
Mindy, also called Lil Mama, is approx 2 yrs old. We think she is a Shih Tzu / Maltese mix. She is very small and weighs approx 6 lbs.

She came in very pregnant after animal control picked her and Mojo up as strays.

About a week after having her, she gave birth to 8 bouncing puppies.

She's very sweet, and has been a great mommy to her litter of puppies.

Mindy and her pups will be ready to go to new homes just in time for the holidays (after Nov 25th).

*Obedience training is mandatory for all dogs adopted from our rescue. The choice of trainer is up to the adopter, unless otherwise noted in the bio. We do require an obedience deposit check in the amount of $200.00 at the time of adoption.

This is a refundable deposit. The check is stapled to the adoption contract and held in a file until we receive proof of completion for your training program.

The check will not be cashed if you complete training and provide us with proof, at which time the check is mailed back to you. The check will only be cashed if you do not complete training! *

The adoption fee for Mindy is $275.00, which includes spay, shots, microchipping, etc in addition to any other medical she may need while in our care.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mindy (Lil Mama), a Calumet City 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 Calumet City, or seeking a Maltese/Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Calumet City.

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