Just keep in mind that little Sunshine is a puppymill rescue so she will come with special issues. Puppymill rescues are often unable to be completely housebroken since they have gotten used to living in their own urine and feces. They can have habits like spinning and self mutilating from being confined most of their lives. Most are very fearful and not socialized to humans.
It takes a very special and patient person to rehab a mill dog, one who realizes not only their potential, but their limitations. I personally would recommend that anyone considering rescuing a mill dog do it through Northcentral Maltese so you would have the support and knowledge of their wonderful and experienced volunteers.
LadysMom, What do you mean by like spinning
