Named after the beautiful white flower Magnolia is...

  • Very affectionate

  • Nuzzler

  • Calm

  • Quiet

  • Gentle soul

  • Great companion

  • Docile

  • Easy to take care of

  • Gets along well with other dogs and is not alpha but being the only dog would make her happiest where she can be the center of your love

  • Initially timid of new people

  • Has not been seen to play with other dogs in her foster home---she's oriented towards the people she loves

  • Crate trained and is quiet in her crate 

  • Knows "sit"

  • Okay with being alone but of course would prefer to be with her family if given the choice

  • Treat motivated 

  • Will not eat plain kibble for dinner

  • Loves to lie behind her foster mom on her chair with her as she works on the computer

  • Walks great on a leash with no pulling

  • Rides great in the car

  • Magnolia would thrive in a quiet home and one with not a lot of new people coming & going

  • Has not been with cats under our care so we don't know how she is with them but based on her personality and breed we think she'd be fine

  • Lives in a home with a Cockatoo, Amazon and a cockatiel and doesn't pay attention to any of them when they're nearby

  • We do not know her breed mix for sure.  The shelter we got her from said she was a Maltipoo/Spaniel mix but we do not see any Maltipoo in her since her coat isn't curly.  She is white like a Maltese, although she has a orange spot on her side and dashes of orange in her ears.  She also doesn't have the curly tail of a Maltese but instead a docked tail.  Her coat is silky soft and she does not require regular grooming.  Her ears in their fluffiness resemble more a Spaniel's. We do not believe she's hypoallergenic but she may be low shedding. Regardless, she's beautiful inside and out. 

  • Housetrained.  Can hold her bladder 8 hours overnight when left out in her foster's family room. 

  • 4 years old

  • 16 lbs

  • Microchipped

  • Shots up to date

  • Healthy

  • Has pearly white teeth since we just got her teeth cleaned by a vet

  • All medical paperwork provided

  • Respectful quiet children 12 and up

  • San Diego residents only

  • Adoption fee $325
