Special Needs Maltese For Adoption in Edmonton AB – Meet Sweet Cesar


Meet Cesar, Maltese Dog For Adoption in Edmonton AB

Have you been hoping to find a Maltese dog for adoption in Edmonton and area?

Pet Adoptions Network has been tasked with finding a very special home for a very special 4 pound bundle of love called Cesar. Cesar is healthy, fixed, up to date on shots and house trained. Cesar may be tiny, but he has a big impact on your heart. He is absolutely gorgeous. In fact, it is hard to tell that he is not one of those cute white fluffy puppy toys they sell for children. He is an absolute little darling.

Unfortunately for Cesar, his first home was absolutely the wrong home for him. He was living in a day home, surrounded by a tiny dog’s worst nightmare – toddlers. Although little children mean well, they have difficulty understanding that dogs are not toys. Cesar was terrified in that environment, and that is what prompted his first owners to rehome him.

His second owners love him to bits, but have come to realize that Cesar needs to be placed in a home where he will feel completely safe – a quiet home with just one or two seniors who are home all day, have no other pets, and who do not have small children in the home.

Cesar has the dog equivalent to PTSD, and really needs extra special care to control his anxiety

The next home that Cesar goes to needs to be his forever home. We are taking careful measures to find him a home that is just right. He needs a person to cling to like Velcro. Someone who is home all day, is fairly sedentary, and who has a proper routine in a quiet home. This home will be Cesar’s haven, and where he will hopefully be able to come off of the anxiety medications he is currently on. If you feel that you have the right home for Cesar, please reach out to us today.

All About Cesar – Maltese Dog For Adoption in Edmonton AB

β™₯ Name of Pet: Cesar
β™₯ Location: Edmonton, AB, T5R 3N9
β™₯ Type of Pet: Dog
β™₯ Breed of Pet: Maltese
β™₯ Color / Coat Type: White, fluffy (except short after grooming)
β™₯ Age of Pet: 7 years old
β™₯ Size of Pet: 4 pounds
β™₯ Health Problems: Yes
Anxiety. Big anxiety. We got him from a day home and believe he was traumatized (he looks like a little stuffed animal and the kids were 3 yrs old and under in this home). When he is really anxious, it even affects his pooping. (how long it takes him). We have been to the vet and they can not find anything physical with him.

He barks, squeaks and will nip if someone tries to pet him (if he is not familiar with them).

He doesn’t like having his teeth brushed and has had teeth removed. Otherwise, physically healthy. Cesar has a physical exam every year and we have a great vet who he visits if we have any health questions or concerns.
β™₯ Behavior Issues: Yes
Anxiety. In the past he has even vibrated. He is currently on puppy prozac and CBD oil. That has given us the best results but ultimately, his anxiety has slowly increased over the past few years in particular.

Cesar has separation anxiety from one of our family members. If that member goes for a walk, Cesar cries the whole time and won’t console with other other family members.
β™₯ Gets along with: Older Children, Adults Only
β™₯ Pet is: Neutered, Fully vaccinated, House Broken
β™₯ Food: Other
He eats primarily Iams. The bowl is left out and he eats regularly. He loves people food that falls on the floor but we don’t feed him that. He drinks well.

Cesar’s Personality

Cesar is anxious. He is playful. He is loyal (to his one person). He likes to throw a toy and flip it around. He is not an outside dog (unless his person is outside). He doesn’t typically enjoy walks.. more just hanging out in the yard. He likes to sit on the couch with his person. He is great at night. No problems sleeping and is very quiet.

Cesar is smart and does understand commands. Sometimes, he acts impulsively or out of immediate need.

Our adult daughter bought a puppy for the family as a surprise gift. Cesar was quite interested in her friend’s puppy so she thought this would be good for him. It has had the opposite effect. We are keeping the two dogs separated as the puppy wants to play and Cesar just wants to get away from her.

Also, we want to know, as he is a complex dog, that he will find a good home. We don’t want to see him bounced around from home to home. It may take a little time for him to attach, but once he attaches, he is committed. (I don’t know if that makes sense.)

Why is Cesar Being Rehomed?

We are at a loss. We have tried many things but this is getting more than we can manage. We have been thinking about this for some time. There are 4 people in our house (plus my mom who comes over 5-6 times per week).

There is a lot of activity in our house and I think that is too much for him. We believe he would do better living with an individual who is own his/her own and has lots of time to sit with him and has a quiet environment.
