I especially recommend Kyra Sundance’s DOG TRICKS. It’s a four-color, easy to follow, soft cover book of easy-to-teach tricks that will help your dog use its brain as much as you are hopefully exercising your dog with a ball, game or a job. DWP has been around for a lot of years and is highly respected. Take a look to see what else might interest you.

The American Maltese Association Rescue – an all volunteer, 501c3 non-profit organization. Rescue volunteers that support our breed consist of both members and non-members who share a love for Maltese and a commitment to ensure unwanted, homeless Maltese find warm, loving forever homes. AMAR doesn’t use a sanctuary. There is no shortage of Maltese needing help, and there is no shortage of homes to adopt them. The missing parts of the equation are the foster homes and donations. Can you help us? Become a foster home and save their lives. If you can’t foster, please make a donation to save their lives. www.americanmalteserescue.org
Road Trip Rescues is a small, home-based, not-for-profit rescue. Our main goal is to bring together sweet, forgotten adoptable dogs with kind humans who are willing to provide our rescuees with forever homes. We work to accomplish this by saving dogs from euthanasia at nearby kill shelters. We first make sure all of our rescues are vetted and healthy, and then work on socializing these babies who may have been very traumatized by their time at the shelter. Our rescuees are loved as our own while they are with us and live with us as family. We are not breed specific, nor do we care about size, age or disabilities. We love them all and work hard to make up for those who may have wronged them. We evaluate their needs, temperment and quirks, and use this knowledge to help find the perfect match. Our goal is for your home to be the last home for these furkids, a place for them to live out their lives with love and kindness, which they will return to you every day.

Petfinder.com – A national website listing thousands of adoptable pets from over 12,000 adoption/rescue groups. (This is how we found our wonderful Brodie.) Looking for a purebred? You will find many on Petfinder.com. Give it a glance. If you don’t find what you are looking for right away, try again later. Unfortunately, healthy adoptable purebred dogs are abandoned & turned into shelters and rescue daily. But don’t leave out the mixes. They are often the best of friends.
