Hi Everyone! I’m Maxine! I am a black and white Female Malshi, (Maltese/Shih-tzu) currently weighing in at 3lbs. My foster mama calls me Bumble Bee, I guess because of the yellow bows and collars everyone is putting on me. I love it and all, but they are so silly. I absolutely love wrestling with my bigger foster mate, the Mini Schnauzer. He might be twice my size, but I have twice the endurance! You might notice that when you pick me up, I am giving you the side eye… but only until I get some smooches! I think being suspicious is a good quality. Until I know your true intentions… My foster mama’s crime TV might be rubbing off on me. My zoomies are top quality and will remind you of the Fast and the Furious!! I will fly by you, like a flash! I love my Kong toys, chew ropes, and most anything I can play with.

Maxine is a sweet girl who wants to please a loving family! She has the softest, silkiest hair and has the face of a puppy model! Any family will be lucky to bring this sweet little girl home! Apply today to see if you might be a good match for this silly sweetie! 

KNOWN HISTORY – Mill broker surrender. These pups have lived their entire lives being nothing more than a number or merchandise. Their whole worlds changed the day they came into our program! They finally got to be members of a real family, and we can’t wait to watch them grow up in loving homes where they are part of YOUR family, too! 

Won’t you please consider adding this precious, sweet, loving, super happy little girl to your family? If you are not quite ready to add a new member to your family, won’t you please SHARE our adoptable kiddos to your social media? You never know when your share will be the share that brings them home. 💖

Maxine’s adoption fee is $850 and includes spay, microchip with free lifetime registration, age appropriate vaccinations and dewormers, and 30 days of medical insurance.  She will come home with a hobo bag of things to help her get started in her new furever home. You can apply to welcome this beautiful young lady into your family by completing an adoption application below.

Please understand that adopting from P.R.A.R. means FOREVER. Please do NOT apply if you do not have the time to properly train and exercise a dog, (professional training will be required within 1 year of adoption) or if you do not meet the minimum adoption requirements for the dog in which you are applying, (see minimum requirements above).
