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
Up to date on shots
Obedience trained


She will not be shipped.

And 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.

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!

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.

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.
