Safi and Shaba's Story...
Quiet love bugs looking for you!!! Meet Safi (left) and Shaba (right) who are both 8 years old, and have been together since they were puppies. Both are spayed, had their dentals, are up-to-date on shots, housebroken, and microchipped. They walk well on a leash and are good with other dogs. These girls are just the sweetest things!

If you're looking for a dog to alert you to strangers, these aren't the ones. They are so quiet and rarely bark and when they do, it's a simple little quiet "woof".

Safi is actually Safi Francesca, which means pure, clean, fresh, attractive and free one! She sure lives up to her name. She is the princess of the two, always such a 'girly-girl' and she does that famous Maltese spin when she's excited. When she runs she holds her head high and just glides across the lawn like the princess she is. Although she is overweight (17 lbs.) at the moment she is on a diet.

Shaba, on the other hand, is the tomboy of the two. Actually named Shaba Carmalita, meaning little cloud with caramel patches, because her ears are a light caramel or lemon color. Right now she weighs almost 15 lbs. she is also overweight and on a diet. Shaba is also very laid back, walks well on a leash and gets along fine with other dogs.

I don't know how they are with cats as there are no cats in this home, but we were told by the previous owner that they are fine with cats also.

Neither Shaba or Safi play with toys but they do rough house with each other and are so fun to watch when they play together.

If you would like two real sweet girls that just love attention, these girls would be great companions. They will need exercise to supplement the diets, so they are looking for someone who likes to take nice long daily walks. It would be awful to separate them now, so anyone interested must adopt the two of them together.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Safi and Shaba, a Blairstown Maltese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maltese for sale in Blairstown, or seeking a Maltese dog from a breeder in Blairstown.

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