Adopted new furbaby

I am a daily lurker, sometimes poster, with finally my own good news!!

I joined this forum quite awhile ago to learn more about this beautiful breed.
Was torn between the Maltese and its cousin the Havanese. Loved the Maltese, but also loved the colors of the Havanese. What to do?

Well.. two Sunday's ago this Sunday, I saw a listing on PetFinder. Maltese. In rescue. With the most beautiful face. I just knew. No more doubt. He was the one.

I recently lost my lab. Which left my home and my heart empty. What better way to honor her memory than to rescue a dog in need? Didn't expect it to happen so soon. But once I saw that face.. I had to put in a application.

And... I picked him up last Friday! I still can't believe I was the lucky one picked to give this special little guy his new forever home!!

Thank you all for all the knowledge I have learned over the years.. I am so proud and happy to say I will finally be a Maltese Mommy!! I know I made the right choice. And he is a cousin to the beautiful Havanese!

Wow!!! After so many years of wanting and learning.. I got me a special little guy.. he is so good. When he needs to go potty, he goes to door and whines.. how perfect is that! He is the most loving smart dog!! In a short time he has really captured my heart.
No problems with him at all. Came in and made himself at home.

Vincent as I call him, is 1 1/2 years old. Beautiful little fella.

Sadly he was so matted when the rescue got him that he had to be shaved. So I call him my little lion dog!

So... meet Vincent!!

Congratulations on your little Vincent, he is absolutely adorable. * His eyes are so expressive and just shine with intelligence and michief. Don't worry about the hair, it will grow back, and for now you can just buy him cute little t-shirts to wear.

Some things are just meant to be. He is adorable. Just watch out for sunburn with that short cut.

Just adorable and maybe eventually you can add a hav too. My maltese loves her neezer siblings and she was my first child too

Aw!!! Vincent looks like such a sweetie. He really makes me smile. No wonder he has won your heart over. Congratulations! I know you will never forget your lab, but it's surprising how much room we have in our heart.
