Hi! My name is Max and I am bonded with my sister Mia! I’m the Maltese and Mia is the Chihuahua. We MUST be adopted together.

Sadly our owner passed away so we were taken to a shelter but they were very full. The staff felt it was best for us to go to the rescue where we are in a foster home and they can help us find the right forever home for us, together!

I am deaf and blind so I rely heavily on my sister, Mia for guidance. Don’t let my disabilities fool you, I am quite spry as long as I have Mia around to tell me the world is okay!

While we both usually go on walks together, Mia can go without me from time to time but she is always eager to get back to me, I worry when I am on my own. We are always together, touching and cuddling! And we both love to go on walks!

We are both good with respectful kids, other small dogs, and larger dogs. While we are both good with people we know, I am a little nervous around strangers so I need a little extra time to get to know new people. Remember, Mia can see you and hear you, I can only smell and feel you.

While we do get along with others, due to our unique situation, we would do best in a home without young children.

We are also both potty-trained and crate trained so if you needed to leave us alone for a while, you can do so with confidence!

As older dogs, we will need to have regular medical checkups. We both have a slight heart murmur but nothing to worry about. We both just had our teeth cleaned and we came through that just fine!

If you think we may be a good match, or you would like to get to know us better, please click the Adoption Application button below and you will be contacted by an adoption counselor!

Due to home introductions that are part of the adoption process, we can only accept applications for interested parties who are in or near San Diego County, California at this time.
