Dog of the Week: Rita

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.

Rita 2

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!

Rita 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 The adoption application can also be completed HERE.
