Story
Lucí is a rescue from a foster who placed an ad on Facebook about 6 - 7 yrs ago. Don’t know her exact birthday or age since her original owner never gave us nor the foster Luci’s (previously named Sassy) records, however, when we took her to the vet they estimated that she was about a year old at the time. She has no health issues, was spayed once we got the green light from the vet, & is a perfectly energetic dog. She certainly lives up to her breed with being very affectionate, playful, & alert. She loves going on walks, isn’t too fond of going on drives or baths, & is certainly a “People Poochie”. She also CAN be aggressive towards other dogs so no roommates. We’re looking for a new forever home for her because, unfortunately, between work (we all work) & studies, we don’t have the time to give her the proper attention & physical activity she needs. We want to make sure she gets the best quality of life & being stuck in the house all day isn’t fair for her.

Or, how about these Maltese in cities near Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Story
Gizmo is a 5 year old Maltese boy, about 13 pounds.  Housebroken, but not yet fixed or up to date on medical.  Very friendly, but a little protective of his people.  He gets along with other dogs, but really prefers to snuggle with people.  Current owner believes he may have some undiagnosed back pain. Gizmo is in our direct from owner adoption program and is not currently in Chesed's custody. We will background and vet check all applications, which are available at www.chesed-rescue.org/adoptions. Just fill out the general application and mention Gizmo! There will be no adoption fee (though donations to the rescue are always appreciated), but adopter will be responsible for bringing this boy up to date medically, including a neuter.

Story
Hi, my name is Alfredo. I was brought to PAWS4you because my owners gave up on me due to some behavioral quirks. I love food and toys so much that I don't like sharing. Although I take a little time to bond with new people, I would like to meet you. Once we're friends, I'll give you unconditional love. I enjoy going for walks and playing with my toys. I love chasing tennis balls too! The best home for me will have adults only (no elderly). I'm looking for calm adults who have experience with possessive behaviors like mine. If you are patient and willing to help me become the best version of myself, please give me a chance. I've been waiting for my furever home for too long. Adopt me! EXPERIENCED BEHAVIORAL OWNERS ONLY
