She may be missing some teeth, but Rita still has a winning smile. She’s a Bichon Frise and Maltese mix and she’s looking for her forever home where she can relax and be loved by her people.
Hello, my name is Rita and I’m what they call a Teddy Bear. Hard to tell now, but I bet when my hair grows out a bit I’ll be a wonderfully fluffy puppy!
I am about seven to eight years young and a happy little thing, weighing about 11 pounds. I am a little timid but getting better each day with the help of my foster mom and all the animals I get to hang out with. I really like to get in the bed and snuggle at night and I sleep well. I like to pretend I don’t like car rides, but really I do like going places and seeing what the world has to offer. After years of breeding puppies and living in a cage, I find the world a little overwhelming but fascinating. I go outside every chance I get and sometimes you will have to come get me and bring me in. My foster mom cannot decide if I’m potty trained yet because we go outside a lot and I do my business out there.
I just had some major surgery with my teeth; they were in bad shape and I don’t have many left, but we like the ones I have and think they give me character (I have had some removed since my picture was taken). I am spayed, have all my shots, and am microchipped.
I am ready to meet you and bring joy with my smiling face! Please contact my foster mom at firstname.lastname@example.org. The adoption application can also be completed HERE.
