Story
Meet Cotton, a 6 month old Maltese boy who weighs 8 pounds. He is being fostered in McKinney, TX. Only Texas applicants will be considered. Let me tell you a little about what my Foster Pawrents have figured out about me. The Dogter in Austin thinks I am around 6 months old and that I am probably a Maltese. I am a beautiful white boy weighing in at just around 9 lbs. I get along with all the other puppers here, but I want to play more than they do. Luckily I can also play by myself with my toys. I like to move my toys around and wrestle with the doggie beds here. I am not totally housetrained but am working on that every day. I love food so much but maybe that could be because I was on my own for a while. I enjoy exploring the back yard with my sniffer. I also will bark when I see someone walk by the front window and at strange noises I do not recognize. I have free range of my foster home and they let me sleep wherever I want to. I like to test out all the doggie beds, just like Goldilocks but I usually end up sleeping close to my foster hoomans. I am all puppy so I would like a stay at home Pawrent especially since I am so young and will need continued training. Because I am such a little guy if you have children they need to be at least 12 years old and know how to behave towards puppies. A secure fenced yard would be a bonus but absolutely NO CHAIN LINK FENCES only because of the terrible predators Texas has and some of those creatures can climb chain link fences

Story
Meet Cotton, a 6 month old Maltese boy who weighs 8 pounds. He is being fostered in McKinney, TX. Only Texas applicants will be considered. Howdy howdy folks it's Cotton the one eyed bandit back are you ready for my pupdate? So I have been here at Stickhorse Ranch for a little bit. I have decompressed totally. My eye is all healed up. I don't even think I miss that eye because I sure get around perfectly. I love to play with my foster brother and foster sister here. I really like being outside, especially with the weather getting nice. I like to explore the backyard and play chase and tag with all the other pups here. Since I've been here I've gained the weight that I should have on me. I now weigh 13 1/2 pounds. I am a little food piggy but that's probably because I was on my own for a while. I will clean up everybody's bowl if they haven't finished their meals, so foster mom has to keep a close eye on me and all the other doggy bowls. I like any and all treats, and I take them really gently from you. I do like to play with the other foster dogs here but I also can play by myself by tossing my toys up in the air. I really like Nyla bones in those crinkly noisy toys. I do not like thunderstorms, lightning, rain, and getting my feet wet. I am almost potty trained, but I do have an accident every now and again I am not a snuggly dog or a kissy dog but I do like to sleep in doggy beds or by you in the big peoples bed. Foster mom says the only bad habit I do have is I like to chew the beauty bark that's out in the yard and I will bark when I see the Amazon driver or any other type of delivery person walk by the door and let them know I'm here to protect the house. Foster mom says I'm a really happy go lucky guy, considering my circumstances on how I got here. I sure wish I could be able to tell everybody what had happened to me before but I guess there's no Dr. Doolittle's around anymore. So let's update my list on what I would like to have in my new home with my new furmily. A stay at home, parent to continue with my potty and other training, because I am pretty smart I probably can learn tricks and commands very easily. No kids under 10. A very secure backyard is a big bonus. NO CHAIN LINK FENCES. If you have another dog about my size that likes to play, that would be pawsome. I could also be a single dog in your home too. Lots of toys. Comfy, dog beds, and people beds. Lots and lots of love. A big can of training treats. Good nutritional food for my meals. I eat both kibble and soft. So if you think you can satisfy all my needs and wants, please submit an application for me and there is a direct link below to do that. If you have any questions, you can reach my foster mom with them at stickhors@gmail.com UYR helps so many Littles and we count on our family, friends, Facebook and social media buddies for contributions to help us help others that need help (like me). If you find it in your heart and budget to help us out, there is a PayPal link below for your donations. You can always share my story with your friends to if you're unable to donate as the more shares I get there always could pawsible be someone out there who can help us with donations that will let us help us help other littles that desperately needs us and UYR will always help as many as they can as long as we have Foster homes for them. Thank you, until my next biography, Cotton

Story
Maverick has been apart of our family for 7 almost 8 years. Giving him up is the hardest thing we will have to do but with us growing our family we just have too much on our plate to handle a dog. Maverick is so friendly and just loves to cuddle or lay near us all day l. He gets very excited for walks and is all around a happy dog. He’s so tiny that we call him a puppy still and he has the energy of a puppy as well. He’s great around our daughter even when she grabs and tries to play with him. He is not potty trained but that is truly only because we never made or had the time to train him. With proper attention and training he could be potty trained I’m sure. I got maverick when he was only a few weeks old and I myself was young and working all the time he didn’t have the proper attention or training and life just happened. He’s been a sweet amazing part of the family and will be heartbreaking to let go of but he needs a good sweet home that can give him the attention he needs.

Story
💃🐶 ADOPT KAYLEE 🐶💃 Kaylee is about 6 years old and just the sweetest girl. She is great with all people, including kiddos, and she gets along with other dogs in the home. Outside of the home and/or on a leash, she likes to pretend she doesn't like other dogs and goes a little overboard to get her point across. She is housebroken and crate-trained. She loves sunbathing, and her talents include: 🐾 Pretending to be deaf when she doesn't want to do something 🐾 Dancing and walking like a human 🐾 Letting you know when you've spent too much time on the phone 🐾 Sweet talking you out of some bacon Kaylee would likely not do well in an apartment if she can see out the window. She's very vocal when she catches sight of a squirrel, dog, cat, bunny, or any other animal. She'll also bark at other people walking by. She is super friendly and social and doesn't ever meet a stranger. Please consider adding Kaylee to your family. She will bring you so much love and happiness! ADOPTION APPLICATION: www.tinyurl.com/IADRAdoptionApp ***IMPORTANT- PLEASE READ*** Our adoption fee is $175. We require an application to be completed prior to setting up a meet-and-greet. We do not offer "on-the-spot" adoptions. We do not adopt on a first-come, first-served basis. We do our best to match dogs with families that will be a good fit to help ensure a successful adoption.

Story
🐾💜Adopt Zoey 💜🐾 Zoey is a beautiful Maltese mix, about 10 years old, and 17 pounds. She was completely invisible at the Wylie Shelter, sleeping on a cement floor, for over a month. No One Cared. She had double ear infections, pyometra, and really bad teeth. It’s no wonder she was so disoriented, with all that sickness ravishing her little body. When we found out that Zoey had been wasting away without any adoption interest, we knew she needed a soft place to land, medical care, and help finding someone who would love her FUR~Ever More! We’re gonna need everyone’s help, sharing her posts, please! She deserves to be seen and loved! She’s spayed now, has been fully vetted, and she’s feeling so much better! She’s got some arthritis, she can’t see or hear like she did when she was a puppy but she’s got a whole lot of love to share! She’s even had her teefers freshly cleaned! 🐾 Please ADOPT Zoey To start the adoption process, please fill out an application at www.FriendsUnitedinRescue.com/Adoptions DALLAS, TEXAS (Rowlett)
