Hello, my name is Deloris. I am a beautiful adult female Maltese who doesn’t like a lot of commotion or large groups of people, and kids are not a good fit for me. Although I am still cautious around you humans and will bark if someone comes to the door, I am slowly learning that you’re not so bad after all. I am even respectful of those whack-ya-in-the-face things…you know…cats! Hee, hee!!

I enjoy treats, chewing on sticks & bones, playing with unstuffed toys, old towels, and socks, but I really LOVE playing tag with my resident fur sib! I am a very smart girl who not only does my business on potty pads and outside, but I walk nicely on the leash, I am crate trained, and I know commands like “come, “go potty”, and “outside”!

All I need now is a fur-ever home with a fenced yard and a doggie companion with whom I can play. Oh yeah, and a patient, unconditionally loving family who will NEVER give up on me! Hee, hee!! I promise that if you’ll let me, I will be your best friend for life!! Love, Deloris

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.
