Kirby the Maltese


Happy Friday from Kirby, the Maltese!

Kirby, now Manolo found his furever family! This little cutie pie was considered to be too big in Korea and had a hard time finding a loving family! Manolo never gave up his hope and now his dream came true.

He is so happy to have a loving family of his own now and we couldn't be happier! He will also have fur brother whom he can play with.

Congratulations to the Arguello family and Manolo on finding each other and we wish them many many happy years together

History: Kirby was rescued from a high kill shelter in S. Korea. He had a skin problem from neglect and luxating patellas, but a great personality, so he was rescued, rehabilitated and brought back to excellent health.

We brought him here to find a better life and a forever family who will adore him. He has been checked for parasites, heartworm - all negative! His blood tests show he is a very healthy little dog. Maltese live 15 to 20 years so he probably has a long life ahead!
