Hello, my name is Heidi Joy and I am a 5yr old, approximately 10 lb Maltese girl who was rescued from a commercial breeder. I am on the shy side, but I like other dogs and need to have a furry brother or sister in my new home. I would like a home with patient and understanding humans who have lots of love to give. Really active kids tend to make me nervous, so older kids are better for me. I don’t go up or down stairs yet, but I can use a ramp to get on to the couch…which happens to be my favorite place to be, besides your bed! I don’t like to be alone much. I am pee pad trained but will go outside when brought out at regular times. I am really just a sweet girl who just loves belly rubs and hugs and lots of love. I am fostering in the northeast and can travel to my forever home.
