Meet Lulu Belle! We are pretty sure when velcro was invented they had Lulu in mind! If you are looking for a dog that loves to be around you, playful, quirky, smart and cuddly then Lulu is your gal! This little girl is a 15 month old mix of Poodle and Maltese making her a Maltipoo. She is a breed that is more hypoallergenic and non-shedding with a soft white coat. She has long legs and weighs about 12-13 pounds. She was given away by her previous family because they didn't have time. They did not mention it to us but she was obviously bred once at her young age. Because of this she has been great with a 7 week old puppy in her foster home that arrived at the same time a Lulu and a kitten named Kash. She is very playful with the kitten (as well as some other cats) as well as a male Cockapoo named Yetti that she loves to play with when she isn't following her foster Mom everywhere. She is the kind of dog that wants to go with you wherever, is good in the car and on a leash. She would do well with another dog but a male dog would be preferred for her as she tends to go to male dogs in her foster home as opposed to the females. She does like to sniff around in her yard with her foster Mom so a yard is STRONGLY preferred. She also will NOT go to a home where she spends 8 to 9 hours a day alone. Her adoption fee includes the following: 1. Spay 2. Current vaccinations including rabies 3. Deworming 4. Microchip 5. New collar and leash 6. New bed 7. Starter food 8. Professional grooming (as pictured) An adoption fee does apply. As we prescreen via email ONLY (we do NOT make or receive phone calls in the pre-screening phase) please tell us a bit about you such as: 1. Your lifestyle, activity level and work schedule. 2. Area you live in (please name the city) and if it is a house or apartment. 3. How many adults, children and pets in the household. 4. Where your pet stays when you are out or at work. 5. Where your pet will sleep. 6. Breed experience 7. If you don't have a dog your plans on keeping him socialized Some notes to consider before applying for Lulu: 1.Lulu is a Poodle/ Maltese. Once her coat grows in fully she will require ongoing groomings every4- 6 weeks to keep her from getting matted. 2.Lulu is a very nice adult dog and is doing great in rescue. She will continue to require the time and commitment to become the best canine citizen he can be so that he feels safe and secure and won't be dumped again.. Please make sure that everyone is on board and ready for the responsibility of a new life. 3. Please make sure you are ready to adopt before coming to see our adoptable dogs. We are a foster based rescue and do not have the space to hold dogs for a couple of weeks while you vacation or make your way to California to come and adopt. We will adopt out of state but ONLY if the potential adopter comes here to adopt in person and that is after a screening by Skype. WE DO NOT SHIP DOGS EVER. 4. We are often inundated with emails about our adoptable dogs and try as we might to make everyone happy it is nearly impossible with only one dog and sometimes up to 50 potential families. The more information you provide in your email to us the quicker we will get back to you. If you have written to us before about a particular dog and did not receive a response please do try again. We try to answer every email but it is not always possible. Every dog has different home requirements that we search for so sometimes you are the right fit for the dog we are trying to place. 5. Please do not send more than one email. It slows down the process as we have to weed through many inquiries. After your initial email we will get back to those we feel are the best fit. If you are still interested we do a brief phone call before the actual meet and greet. We do not accept phone calls in the pre-screen phase. 6. We receive alot of emails that say please call me, please send more information etc and do not have time to respond to those emails. All potential families are required to answer the questions listed above. Thank you for choosing to adopt!
