Gizmo's Story...
Hi! My name is Gizmo!

I am an approximately 1 1/2 year old SO CUTE and small toy white and apricot Maltese/Toy Chihuahua Mix aka a Malchi, I weigh approximately 5 lbs :)

I have THE CUTEST ears my foster Mom has ever seen!

I was rescued by the Emerald City Team from a very high kill shelter with very limited access, and was loved and vetted and I feel great now!

I love to play, love all people and to kiss and hug too! I love kids!

I live with kitties, too!

Please consider giving me the loving and furever home I so deserve!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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