About Truffles

Maltese
Age: Senior
Sex: Female

PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE BIO ON THIS DOG BEFORE REQUESTING AN APPLICATION. MANY OF OUR DOGS HAVE STRICT REQUIREMENTS FOR THEIR ADOPTION. 10-year-old female Maltese, about 9 pounds. I'm a quirky girl looking for my forever home. A few things I like to do: go for walks, cuddle with my humans, and sleep with my family. I like to be close to my dog mom. I am so close, I sometimes get stepped on or tripped over. I protest at closed doors and sometimes in my crate, but I usually settle down with little fuss. I occasionally nip at my roommates (kids and dogs). I do fine with dogs and kids that leave me alone. I do not like helicopters or skateboards on TV. I am still working on pottying outside, but I will go on the potty pad. I do well on a leash. Cheek and ear rubs are my faves. I have a spunky personality and love to twirl in circles. I do well with strangers BUT I am a flight risk near an open door. I require regular brushing and grooming to keep my luscious locks tamed. but I do like my hair long and a bow on my head. I am very hard to photograph because my black eyes blend so well with my black fluff! But if you meet me in person, you will see that I am beautiful! Adoption contract and fee applies. All adoptable dogs can be met at adoption events hosted every weekend. For a list of scheduled events go to: https://www.facebook.com/SmidgetRescue/events . Smidget Rescue is not a shelter, and dogs cannot be seen at the Rescue location. All dogs are fostered throughout the Puget Sound area and are brought to the events where they can be met by prospective adopters. Additional pictures of adoptable dogs can be seen at: https://www.facebook.com/SmidgetRescue/photos_stream?tab=photos_albums. All adoptable dogs are spayed or neutered at 6 months of age or older. Puppies are adopted with a refundable spay/neuter deposit (in addition to the adoption fee) and adopters are required to get their puppy to our vet for their pre-scheduled spay-neuter appointments. APPLICATIONS CAN BE OBTAINED BY EMAIL ONLY. Adoption process includes application, meet & greet, home visit and reference check. Email Jamie at [email protected] or click on the CONTACT link on this page. PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS BEFORE SENDING. We get a fair number of incorrect emails and Jamie is not able to contact potential adopters. Notice: We do not ship dogs out of state unless you are within a five-hour radius of Seattle, WA, (such as Portland, Vancouver B.C., etc.), so we can arrange for a home visit. If your home seems like a great fit for the dog you would like to adopt, you must then drive to meet the dog at one of our weekend events or at the fosters home.
