Prefer a home where my owners are home most of the time
I am an 11 yr Maltipoo. I like to go on short walks with my pawrents. I love to play with my toys and be silly. I have a special one you can see in this video. I used to have my own backyard and really miss wandering around and investigating. Most of all I love to cuddle. Cuddle next to you on the couch or on your lap. Don’t forget ear and belly (and bottom) rubs. I recently got a very short hair cut because my groomer was closed for a long time.
I’ve lost my home and the only family I have ever known because they could not take care of me any more. I’ve been a very good boy and I know they love me and wouldn’t give me up if they didn’t have to. My family has always taken the best care of me. I am current on shots, I just had a fresh dental cleaning and only lost a few teeth. My foster mom is nice but she thinks I need to lose a couple of pounds and that I can’t have so many treats. I think if I get a little more exercise I could weigh 17 or 18# like I weighed before. A long time ago my family had cute grand kids I liked to play with when they came to visit. But now I will be happier in a home without children or when children visit for a short stay, then leave. It could be fine if they’re nice and come for a short visit.
If you would like to meet me, please fill out the on line adoption application. My foster mom says my new home has to be in the immediate Austin area because that the rescue rules.
I get along with other dogs in my foster home but it would be nice to be the center of attention again. I wouldn’t mind sharing my new home with another well mannered dog like me as long as I can have lap time, playtime and lots of love. My mom and dad were home, retired and I was the center of their world. Boy did I get a lot of attention, I miss that a lot and I hope I can get a new really forever family soon.

We do not have a facility, all dogs are fostered in the homes of our volunteers. If you are interested in adopting a dog from Lil' Paws Maltese Rescue and other Petite Paws, please visit our website at www.lilpaws-malteserescue.org and fill out an adoption application. This is the first step in our adoption process. Our goal is to place our dogs in safe, stable and loving homes in the Austin Metropolitan area. Thanks for looking!
Lil' Paws Maltese Rescue and other Petite Paws depends on donations to keep the dogs in our program healthy. Many health issues are taken care of before a dog leaves a rescue: spaying, neutering, immunizations, dental care, and in some cases major surgery. Because of the cost of this care, donations are essential to enable us to continue our work. If you would like to show appreciation for what we do and help us continue to do it please go to our website homepage and click the donate button. We thank you in advance for your support.
