ADOPTED!! Malaya

CongRATulations to the Byers/Minton family!

Meet Malaya!  Malaya is a precious little 11-pound Rat Terrier that melted many volunteers’ hearts when they first saw her photos and the plea for help from a shelter in Rosenberg, Texas.  ResQ immediately sprang into action to get her to safety.  She did not have much time at the high kill shelter and we had to work quickly to get her out.  An angel of a volunteer from Katy, Texas stepped up and pulled her out of the shelter for ResQ and then took her to the vet for a once-over and vaccinations.  Four days later she put Malaya on a plane from Houston, Texas, to Raleigh, North Carolina. We cannot thank our Texas angel enough!  There she was greeted by her new foster Mom and driven to Winston-Salem where she is currently being fostered.. That night Malaya got to meet her foster family of four other Rat Terriers, a Golden Retriever, 3 children and Mom and Dad . Tired from travel and a bit scared at first, Malaya sniffed her new surroundings and then started bouncing around. Her personality is super sweet and loving. This little girl would be so happy to have her forever home where she could receive lots of love and attention.  She is only about 10 months old, and just as cute as they come!  She is busy learning the routine of her foster home and the skills, like housetraining, that she will need to enjoy a new home of her own!  For more photos of this sweetie in her foster home, check her album often:

    Mayala is a beautiful little dog. We’ve submitted our adoption app and are hoping to have her join our rat family.

    Thanks Elaine,

    We’re hopeful in our attempt to adopt Malaya. She’s adorable. Reminds me of our first rat ‘Ginger’. Ginger is now 9, full of muscle from bouncing around, but looked a lot like Malaya when she was young. Have a good evening.

    Hello Elaine,

    Thanks for your time and the call back last week concerning Mayala. We’re still quite interested in adopting her, but haven’t heard anything recently. Your details were/are very helpful, and it’s obvious that you have a big heart for these animals.

    Thanks again.

    Scott W.

    We found our dog. I hope Malaya has found a good home, as she was our first choice.
