Jewel is a cuddly Maltese. She is AKC registered with full rights. I have enjoyed caring for her. Jewel loves to give kisses on your nose. She loves attention and being on your lap. She does play but I consider her a love bug! She is now starting to explore and comfortable being on her own. Jewel on December 4, weighed 2 pounds & 4 ounces. She is small but most importantly very healthy. I am estimating her full grown weight to be in the five pound range or slightly under. Jewel and her siblings have not had ANY scary hypoglycemia issues (please familiarize yourself with this before adopting any small breed animal). Jewel and her siblings have been raised in my home. They are socialized DAILY with kids, adults, dogs, and normal house hold activities. She has been paper & wee wee pad trained starting the first day she walked. She is 100% trained on pads when limited to one room but still has an occasional accident when roaming the entire house. She has had the freedom to explore and has never been kenneled/caged/crated. She is up to date with her vaccinations. She loves visitors so you are more than welcome to meet her and her mother. Shipping is available. Delta provides direct flights to many locations. We would adore holding her for you until December 23, so she could be the perfect surprise gift. Let me know if you have any questions.
