Small Male Maltese Dog

Snowy Zanzi is a great little dog.
What a sweet dog for a retired couple. He just needs an upgrade with his health and he will be ready to go. Off for his dental this week. He's 9 kgs which is a little overweight for him but lots of pleasant walks with his new family will soon fix that - and fewer treats!!
We suspect he has been in a home with an older person who has given him lots of love - and food. He has rather short legs and a rather long body and a very sweet face. He's a real smoocher who is just happy to hang around with you. The rather cantankerous dog he now lives with sometimes gets in his face, and - as much as a chubby little maltese can he shrugs his shoulders and walks away. Okay he growled the first time but then recovered his sangfroid.
Snowy is a lovable and cuddly older gentleman who's happy for a short play, a short walk so he can say hello to people he meets, and then just wants to hang out or perhaps have a nap.
He's a really easy little guy just needing love and you.

Victorian Dog Rescue offers the services of our trainer free for six weeks if needed for any settling in issues.
All dogs that come into the care of Victorian Dog Rescue are tested for heart worm.
Victorian Dog Rescue has a six-week full refund policy and a lifetime takeback guarantee that includes 50 per cent of the adoption fee refunded.
Our lovely pound boy Snowy Zanzi is having a refurbishment. He’s been desexed. He’s now had his dental. And building up to one more for his bladder stones.
We are a community fostercare network, not a shelter, and our dogs and cats are cared for in private homes. Note that we are very careful where we rehome our dogs and cats and we have an intensive process. If you want a quick turnaround we are not the group for you. If you seem like a good match for the dog of your choice we will organise a telephone chat, a meet and greet and a property check. We offer a six-week full refund, free assistance for six weeks for any issues, and a lifetime takeback policy with a fifty percent refund of the adoption fee, and of course an invitation to our adopters’ Christmas party.
We care for our dogs and cats and we want you to as well. We know that genuine applicants have no trouble with this process and understand that if we refuse you a dog or cat, it is because you are not the best match for that pet.
Our commitment to the dogs and cats in our care is total and we treat each one as if we are passing on a family pet. This may not suit you so we point out that there are equally great dogs and cats available in pounds, shelters and with other rescue groups.
