MEET PAULIE….a VERY busy 3 yr old, white/gray, 12.5 lb, Lhasa Maltese.  His gray eye and ear are adorable!  This little guy came from the East Valley shelter with a huge cherry eye!  We had it repaired (still healing) and keeping a cone on him was lots of fun!!!  If you are looking for a dog who would love to go running, hiking, playing with you and other dogs…Paulie would be your guy!  He’s like a “dog on the run….dog on the run!”  That being said, when you give him belly rubs, he is gentle, quiet and very chill.  What will really help Paulie is training…he is very smart, he listens and he knows when he has been a bad boy (like tearing up pp pads!)  He is quiet and only barks at strangers on the street some times to protect you.  Mostly, he just wants to meet everyone and visit all the trees and bushes.  He seems like he understands potty training, as he does his business outside…but no guarantees at your house!  He loves to play and romp around, so a yard will be important in his life.  Another dog would be great in his life…but if you are around to work with him, he could be an only dog == just not left alone during the day.  If you work from home, that would be an ideal setting for Paulie.  He wants to please you…he’s just hyper and needs to have a routine.  Kids over 10 yrs old would be great.  He is a little “puppy mouthy” so younger kids wouldn’t be a good idea.  No aggression that we have seen at all!  This boy just wants to be in his forever home…and know he won’t be abandoned again.  Could that be with you?
