Hi my name is Gracie.  I’m an adult female Maltese.  I love to follow my people around the house. I’m doing great on a leash and won’t need a fenced yard if you promise to keep practicing with me.  I love other small dogs and would really prefer to go to a home with at least one other confident dog who will show me the ropes on how much fun it is to be around people. 

I like women best and might take a little longer to feel safe around a man.  I’m still learning how wonderful it is to be petted and loved on so it’s best if people take it very slowly with me so I don’t get worried.  I’m working hard on learning how to go up and down stairs.  Going up is a cinch.  It’s the down part that has me a little baffled.

I don’t know what cats are and I don’t play with toys right now but I love to play with the other small dogs in my foster home. I’m very treat motivated which I think will make it pretty easy for me to learn new things.  I’m potty trained when I am kept on a good schedule. 

I would do best in a quiet home, where someone is home with me most of the time, and that offers me the time and patience to blossom into the beautiful little rose that I am.

Please note that some of our dogs are obtained from shelters, surrendered to our care, or released from breeders.  Each animal's bio is based on our experience of the animal within our care, an educated guess based on physical characteristics, temperament and information shared. Some of the animals come from situations where they are lacking experience in a home and confidence in humans. In turn, they require another companion dog and/or a fenced in yard in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a  particular dog whose bio states those needs and do not currently have them, please understand that your home might not be the right fit.  Please use the filter on our Adoptable Dogs page to find the perfect match for your home.
