Meet Tinkerbelle

Please meet our little cutie-middle aged Tinkerbelle!

She is a sweet Maltipoo in need of a good home or a great foster family!

Tinkerbelle gets along GREAT with dogs and also cats.. she’s being rehomed because of a new situation where grandma needed to move in to help with new little humans. ;)

They are worried that the kids may fall on little Tinkerbelle..Or hurt the older surgery site from a very successful stomach surgery a few years back.

It’s hard on the family, but we commend them for doing the right thing for Tinkerbelle and we want to help them and her find a great home.

She has THE cutest mannerisms as you can see and she is very youthful at 10!

People always ask, How can you stand to part with them? And here's the truth:

I would love to keep Tinkerbelle... but the best sacrifices of rescue is to know that she is meant to be the savior and love of someone's life and go on to bring her special burst of sunshine into someone's deserving heart.

And I have a pretty good idea of who you are, so we will be waiting with long fluffy ears and those beautiful and playful brown eyes till you write...

If you are interested in adopting tinkerbelle please make sure of the following:

1. You are able to adopt a dog that is around 5-7 lbs, full grown. She doesn't know she is tiny, so you must be her constant protector. And those knowledgeable about small dogs and our neighborhood predators we have created in San Diego county, will include your yard layout and supervision plans and experience in your email.

2. That you understand that this will be another member of your family to be adored by all for the next 10 years.A fur child to be exact!

3. That this pup will preferably sleep in the bed with you or on a pretty fluffy bed right beside yours.

If you have gotten beyond this heart-melting face of Tinkerbelle and have become smitten...please email us. We would love to meet you!

Please note, if you are out of the San Diego area, we will consider you, however the onus is on you to travel to us to meet her. Homechecks and phone interviews will all need to be completed beforehand and we are now calling vets and checking references as well.

If you are ready to welcome a new baby into your life and would like to meet our one of a kind girl- Tink...please email us at

Most importantly, thank you for considering adopting vs buying a pet! ;You people make the world a better place. ;And, we all know that senior and middle aged pets are just the best!!!
