Looking for a Furever Home
Dream fostered in IL
Hi everyone! My name is Dream and guess what? That name perfectly describes me. If you ever wanted a dream furbaby, you want me! I am an 18 month old Apricot Maltipoo girl who is perfect according to my foster mom (who has fallen in love with me). 

I am very sweet and cuddly, love other dogs and cats, and am a happy girl. My foster mom has not even heard me bark. I was dropped off at the shelter because my family did not have time for me and left me alone too long so sometimes I would go potty on their floor. In my foster home, I go out every 4 hours or so and have not had any accidents. I love to go for rides in the car, walks and playing with my foster brothers and sisters. I was a bit skinny but I am eating well now and gaining weight. I do not do well with chicken and turkey but LOVE my Beef Stella and Chewy freeze- dried patties.

I am looking for a family that has at least one other small dog my size that is young like me and playful. I LOVE boys but I can be OK with a girl too. I am very flexible and submissive. I weigh 6.9 pounds now. I would like a fenced yard and will only be placed with someone who is home at least half time, preferably full time. I am a bit shy, like many Maltese dogs, and can be afraid in a noisy environment. I am afraid of small children but would be okay with older children above age 12. I prefer women but would be alright with a man in the house if he is quiet and gentle with me.

If you are my furever person I will be devoted to you and love you unconditionally. 
I am UTD with my shots, spayed, microchipped and ready to go. I am healthy and plan to have a long life with you. Please mention my name, on your application. It's Dream, remember? Adoption donation fee is $600.00. Includes microchip.

In Loving Memory

You came to us when the breeder didn't want you anymore 16 months ago. You gave us so much love and happiness. A month after you came to live with us you stopped eating and we were so worried but it turned out your teeth were rotten so the vet took all your teeth. You still loved us. 

Rudy suffered from heart failure and when the vet x-rayed his heart it was literally round with fluid building up and also starting in his lungs. We sent him over the Rainbow Bridge on Thursday. Our hearts are breaking but we also know he will not suffer.

We love you Little Rudy but you are able to run again as the last few months he was unable to walk. He is with Buster, Cody and Charlie playing and watching over us. ❤️❤️

Love you Rudy,

Kathy Schuller 

"It is eerily terrifying that there is no sound when a heart breaks. Car accidents end with a bang, falling ends with a thud, even writing makes the scratching sound of pencil against paper. But the sound of a heart breaking is completely silent. Almost as though no one, not even the universe itself could create a sound for such devastation. Almost as though silence is the only way the universe could pay its respect to the sound of a heart falling apart."

How to keep your dog happy and healthy in hot weather
Analysis by  Dr. Karen Shaw Becker

Provide plenty of fresh clean drinking water at all times - In addition to overheating, your dog can become  dehydrated very rapidly in warm weather. A good general guideline is that a healthy dog should drink between one-half and 1 ounce of water per pound of body weight each day. And if she'll be outside for any length of time, she should have access to complete shade. Periodically encourage her to play in the sprinkler or gently hose her down with cool water to prevent overheating.

Schedule outdoor exercise and playtime for the coolest parts of the day - In most locations, this means early in the morning or after sunset. Try to stay in the shade during daylight hours, and no matter the time of day, don't overdo outdoor exercise or play sessions. Even on an overcast day or in the evening, a long period of physical exertion in hot weather can cause heatstroke in your dog. A good rule of thumb is if outdoor temps hit 90 degrees, your pet should be indoors where it's cool.

Avoid hot pavement - Not only can pavement on a hot day burn your dog's paws, but the heat rising from concrete or asphalt can quickly overheat an animal that lives close to the ground. Also don't allow your dog to stand, walk or rest on hot outdoor surfaces like sidewalks or parking lots.
If you must walk him across pavement in the heat of the day, plot the shortest route and walk at a brisk pace. If he's not too large or heavy, consider carrying him till you reach a cooler surface. If all else fails, dog shoes work to prevent burned pads.

Never leave your furry family member alone in a parked car - not even for a minute - On a warm day, the temperature inside your vehicle can rise quickly into the danger zone. For example, on an 85-degree day it takes only 10 minutes for the temperature inside your parked car to climb to 102 degrees. In a half hour, it can rise to 120 degrees.
Leaving windows cracked doesn't drop the temperature inside the vehicle, and leaving your car running with the air conditioner on is dangerous for a number of reasons.
Leaving a pet unattended in a vehicle in extreme heat or cold is a criminal act in several states and municipalities. Most statutes have rescue provisions that allow certain individuals, for example police officers, firefighters, animal control officers and store employees to do whatever is necessary to rescue an animal trapped in a vehicle in extreme temperatures.
On summer days, it's best to leave your pet home, inside, where she can stay cool, hydrated and safe. "Outside dogs" may need to come inside, or somewhere cooler, when temperatures rise above 95 degrees. Shade (and warm water) will not prevent heatstroke in extreme temperatures.

Neeko's Joke

An Old man went to the doctor complaining of a terrible pain in his leg. "I am afraid it's just old age", replied the doctor, "there is nothing we can do about it." 
"That can't be" fumed the old man, "you don't know what you are doing." 
"How can you possibly know I am wrong?" countered the doctor. "Well it's quite obvious," the old man replied, "my other leg is fine, and it's the exact same age!" ~

Meee turned TEN last month!
Happy to report that my diabetes is under control, Thanks to my Pawsome Dogtor who has me checked every six months.
Life is gooooooood!

Love and Smooches,
