The final decision has been made to sell Lizzie. If anyone knows of a good home for her, please contact me. These are her "specs:"

Female, 10 months old
AKC Registered
Spayed
Microchipped
Up to date on shots
Housetrained
Obedience trained

$750

She will not be shipped.

And please...no bashing/hateful remarks this time. It's a final decision no longer up for discussion. I post here simply because it's a good resource to find her a great home.

Spotty Poo, I am so sorry that things didn't work out for you. I understand that you have given it your best effort. Sometimes these things just don't work out. Would you at all consider placing the pup in rescue? Or at least working with a rescue group to assist in screening potential new owners? One last suggestion, have you contacted her breeder? As part of our contract, we had to agree that if we were ever to give up our dog, we must return her to the breeder. Just make sure that your contract doesn't have a similar clause. You don't need any more hassles. Good luck to you.

My contract also requires us to return either of our pups to the breeder if we can no longer keep them. Sorry it hasn't worked for you. I know a few people who are looking around for Maltese. Can you refresh my memory about her breeder?

There is no such stipulation in my contract. I would not be posting her for sale if that were case.

I am only going to say this once, this thread is NOT for discussion of why spottypoo is selling lizzie, that has been done, I will delete replies this time, if you have questions about Lizzie feel free to ask, I wouldnt normally allow a "Maltese for sale" thread but I want to see Lizzie get a good home also, I really wish I had the money right now I would come pick her up tommorow, so keep it civil please

Spottypoo,
One of the people that I'm thinking about lives in Greensboro so she is pretty close to you. If you could tell me something about where Lizzie came from (type of breeder, etc) it would help me tell my friend. If you are uncomfortable posting that info here, then PM me. I have evacuated my home due to hurricane and am using dialup so am not online all the time.
Thanks

I know of a woman looking for a female in Virginia. The name she goes by is maggiesmom. I know she goes to MO and SM. You may want to contact her. She has been looking for sometime. I do know she is looking for a "small" female and I do not know the size of your puppy.

At 10 months, Lizzie is 10 lbs.

The breeder has retired and is no longer breeding/selling puppies. Lizzie's litter was her last one. She was located in Lenoir, NC which is about 2 hrs. NW of Charlotte. She has excellent references. Lizzie is as healthy as a horse.

Oh, I didn't even think to notice the weight. My friend is also looking for a puppy a bit smaller. I will let her know.

So sorry it didn't work but you are doing a wonderful thing for her...finding her a home that you will be comfortable with and you will be able to tell her new owner what her needs are. Good luck to you.

Thank you but I have been fortunate enough to find a puppy .....at least I think I have. I have learned not to assume you are getting the puppy until you have him in your arms, you have paid for him and the registration papers are signed. (Yes, I've had a very bad experience with a ton of hurt involved).

I wish you the best in finding a home for your little gal. No matter what her size, she is still a malt and anyone would be lucky to get her, I'm sure. If I had not committed to another, I would be most interested, but I keep my word and will take the pup I have been "promised". If something would happen that I don't get my pup, I will contact you ASAP..and that would be within the next 10 days.

Turning your baby into a rescue sounds like a good idea--but beware, that many potentially wonderful homes would not be able to adopt her becaue of the rescue's restrictions. I"ll use myself as an example. Most rescues would not adopt a dog to my family because:
1. we have two children under the age of 10 (they're 9 & 7) and
2. we have a Jack Russell Terrier (a shorty jack who's sweet as pie and the best little gal!)
3. our dog has not been spayed yet.

So, please keep in mind that there are plenty of people out there who are really interested in a Maltese and would love to adopt your baby--I would take her myself, but I just placed a deposit on my little girl this past Monday (after searching and searching since last year!)

Best of luck and I know that you feel that you are doing what is in the best interest of your baby and that you are being realistic!

Oops--I'm sorry. When I read through the posts, I must have scrolled right over the one where you said "no rescue" And I wasn't trying to change your mind or open a discussion or anything, I just wanted you to be aware of how many wonderful people there are out there who want a sweet little Maltese but are being turned down by rescue organizations. I think you are doing the best thing for both you and your furbaby!

As a matter of fact, I think I even privately emailed you a few months ago and shared that I was looking for a Maltese and would like to adopt her if you decided that you could not keep her!


I also think you have been extremely responsible in how you have handled this situation. I wish you the best of luck.

BTW, don't you live in NC (I do!) ? If you like, you can email me privately!

Please don't feel badly. You have made the best decision for YOU--and ultimately the best decision for your little one too.

Lizzie will not be going to a rescue. Read the above threads.

Again, this is not open for discussion.
