Lynn, that's so wonderful of you to take on Oliver. He's just adorable. How on earth did people turn their backs on that sweet face and walk away. I'm so happy that he will have you to love on him. I had never had a male dog until Jack, careful of their little charming ways.

Just checking in to learn more about Oliver. I really am SO excited for you! I'm also curious as to what your Vet determines the skin troubles are from, and if new food would be beneficial etc.

Oh Oliver is so adorable! I too can not comprehend how someone could have this little fluff for 9 years then abandon him. I hope your vet can find the solution to his health issues.

I have fostered many dogs (though not a Maltese) over the past 20 years or so and have found all wonderful furever homes. While you are sad to say goodbye to some, as long as they are going to a home where they will be loved and cherished, it is not so hard. If I kept them all I would soon have to stop fostering and eventually wouldn't be able to help the next abandoned dog. So, when you foster, you do get to where you can say goodbye because you know it is the best thing to do for not only this dog, but also for the next homeless waifs that will come your way.

Bridget -- I won't meet Oliver until later this afternoon. I really want to get him off the prednisone as I hate using Steroids but know that sometimes it's the last option. Apparently his previous owners left all of his records with the shelter and they will provide to me. I'm hoping that they have records from his previous Vet.

I'm just so frightened that I will become too attached to him and want to keep him. I know I will not be a GOOD foster home as I want to make sure that all of the little fluffs are loved and cared for.

Santa Fe is a very "RICH" community. Heck -- the minimum wage (by law) in Santa Fe is $12.50 an hour, so I can't imagine that someone surrendered Oliver due to monetary issues with Vet care and special food -- but you never know.

Age and size wise he will fit in well with my girls if I do end up having to keep him. Secret is 11 and weighs 4 lbs. Lacie is 8 and weighs 6.2 lbs. And Tilly is 6 1/2 and weighs almost 10 lbs. Oliver is 9 and supposedly weighs 6 lbs, so he's a good match -- but I do hope I can find him a great, only fluff, furever home.

First thing is to meet him and get his health issues under control. And then I'll go from there.

Lynn - I just saw this. I'm so thankful that your co-worker told you about Oliver. He's so cute!!! I can't imagine abandoning this boy (or really any pet). And how lucky for the love at the shelter...not putting him in the cages with the big guys surrounding him. I know this is meant to be, either as a foster or a furever boy. It will all be up to you. No pressure either way. It's win/win that he's out of there. He'll either have a loving family or he'll be part of your loving family. I can't wait until you meet him. And from the pix, he looks like he'll fit in perfectly.
