Meet Victoria!
Maltese Mix
Approx. 5-6 yrs old
Approx. 5 lbs.

Hi there! My name is Victoria!! I’m the cutest little secret there ever could be!! I am so thankful to Safe Haven for rescuing me because I was in a real bad situation. When I arrived in IL, I was skin and bones!! My past life was pretty awful but I know it’s going to be great from here on out!

My foster mom has worked hard to put some meat on my bones! I am healthy and VERY happy now!! I live in a home with 4 other small female dogs. My best friend is a 20 lb. beagle that I LOVE playing and wrestling with!! I get along with all of the dogs in my foster home fine and I don’t mind the cats either.

I enjoy going for walks outside and I always stay real close to my foster mom on our walks. I am housebroken and I do not need a crate, in fact I despise them! I am an angel in the house when my foster mom is at work. I also love sleeping in bed with my foster mom and snuggling up with her on the couch, the closer the better!!

Even though I’m about 6 years old, I have a clean bill of health from the vet! I will need my new family to help a girl out though…I am in desperate need of a dental cleaning. My foster mom took me to the rescue grooming partner, Woof Beach Palms in Geneva, and they did my hair up for me. I will need a family who will continue to keep my hair looking as stylish as it does in my photos!!

Overall, I’m looking for a family who is home often, possibly has another dog, will let me sleep in bed and has lots of love to give to a small princess like myself!
