  Our Pretty In Pink Pearl is a 5 yrs. old, 12 pound, Maltese/Poodle girl that survived an early life that almost snuffed out her life.But as we know, the rescued dogs that we show the world are all “survivors”,  and they hang on to life with a thread of hope and belief that they will find a way to a better home!   This little girl was brought through some fires that many dogs do not survive. This girl came to us with dog bite wounds and a need to be SAVED from the people who owned her.   Despite the hardships in her life, this stunning white , shaved down Malti/Pool sweetheart, is going to be someone’s most treasured PEARL.   Logically, she is still a little reluctant to trust newcomers.   No doubt her life has been full of uncertainty from humans who DID NOT SUPPORT her and take care of her safety.  We are now repairing her image of humans and she is going to be fine with some more time.  Soon she will be less hesitant in meeting new people.  She is good on a leash and learning how to be fully housebroken. Diapers and some pee pads will take care of the little hiccups as she learns.  She loves to have you love on her and to cuddle for TV time or whatever.   We are looking for a quiet household with no high activity.  She is a Princess looking for a kingdom to rule!  Is that something you can offer!????   Contact us at [email protected]   PLEASE NOTE:  Our dogs are transported from Tennessee to meeting places in the states where we have posted.  Further information about us is given on our Adopt-A-Pet site.  The adoption fees vary and will be provided as well as noted on the application you receive.  Contact us at [email protected]
