Please contact Constance (connibouchard@gmail.com) for more information about this pet.Rescued dogIf you are interested in me after reading about me, please visit my site, http://www.breederadoptions.org and follow the instructions. The majority of the dogs we rescue, mostly breeder dogs, have lived their entire lives in less-than-ideal conditions so will need to be socialized, house and leash trained. Most have never lived in a house, walked on a leash, had a treat or sat in a lap. For many of them, their feet have never touched the ground after living for years on wire until they arrive at our main facility where they are evaluated, groomed and given vet care. Most of these dogs are not socialized and need to be cornered to be picked up, so are not suitable for people with physical disabilities or suffer from PTSD. They need folks who will make them the center of their world and help them learn to trust before even attempting to train.  Please do not apply if you do not meet the requirements of the dogs we rescue.  However, they will learn with time, love, patience and most of all, commitment. You must have an ample supply of all of these to reap the rewards of watching these very special dogs become your wonderful companion. We state any known health issues, all are altered unless there is a medical reason not to, which we will advise, any known medical issues addressed, are microchipped, are UTD on all vaccines and have been checked out by at least one veterinarian, usually two. We do not guarantee the health of any of our rescued dogs. The dogs we rescue have lived with other dogs all of their lives and most get along with other dogs. We state if they are dog aggressive. We require a permanent, full-time parent. That means you must be able to spend the majority of your time with your new companion to socialize and train. We do not, under any circumstances, place them in homes with young children as they have not been exposed to children and we do not know how they will react. Hi my name is Karma and I'm a little sweetheart! I'm a happy girl and love to play (sometimes with myself), also wrestling and chasing are fun as well. I came from a bad place where we were not handled very well and didn't receive any socialization. I have been in my foster home for just over 9 months and have made huge progress in learning to trust. I still hate to be picked up and held, but I will sit on the couch with you and bedtime will have to be in bed with you. I sleep through the night! I think people are less threatening when they are laying down and I love to be petted at night when we are in bed. I sometimes will even lay my head on my foster mom while I fall asleep. I do pretty good on the house training and use the doggie door most of the time. Sometimes I still do have accidents, though. I definitely need to have another playful dog that gets along with me. My foster mom loves to watch me play with Joy, the other foster dog in the house. We chase each other and wrestle a lot. I do have separation anxiety, and bark like crazy when my foster mom even heads for the door. I really like to hear my own voice. I'll need to be in a home where somebody is home most of the time to help me with this. Also somebody who has tons of patience because I'm still a work in progress! If you have been waiting for a beautiful Maltese girl, please ask for me on your application to http://www.breederadoptions.org. Love, Karma 031823-17  July 14, 2024, 9:00 pm

Story
Hello there! I'm Alaska, a spirited 9-year-old Maltese in search of my forever home. Despite my age, I'm a highly active and playful girl. I adore leisurely walks, relishing playtime with my toys, or coaxing my siblings into a friendly wrestle. They might not always want to play, but I can be quite persistent! I've had experience around infants and toddlers, and I'm perfectly comfortable with them. I'm also well-acquainted with both smaller and larger dogs. However, please keep in mind that I will need grooming on a regular basis to keep me looking my best. I've mastered crate training and leash etiquette, and I'm quite well-behaved during mealtime, readily sitting and staying as required. My favorite pastimes include snuggling on my mom's lap and sharing cozy nighttime naps with her. If you'd like to get to know me better, you can meet me at one of our adoption events. To get in touch, please contact my mom at nm9377@aol.com or reach out to adopt@valleydogs.org. Thank you for considering me as your future furry companion!

Story
Pookie came in as a stray with who we initially thought was her sibling, Dumpling. Her coat was severely matted, so much so that we had to shave most of her. In the process, it became clear that she was very pregnant. She is days away from giving birth, so she is not available to adopt just yet, but once her puppies are weened, the Pookie will be looking for a place to call home. She’s been super sweet and loves attention. She’s also been great with every other dog that she has met so far. She has had no accidents in her crate and seems to be housebroken.
