This lovely lady has given homes to now three pups of ours over the years. Her first love was a handsome little man named Cookie. She got him when her son was just a little pup himself. The two of them grew up together. Cookie was a central part of their family and their lives for 17 wonderful years. When his mom talks about him, the word that seems to come to her most is "special." And just by the way she talks about him - we believe it. 

When she came to us most recently with adoption on her mind, it was a few months after her beloved Cookie had passed. We could see that her grief was still fresh. She was ready to think about opening her heart again but wanted to wait for another very special pup. It took some time and she looked at furry little candidates on a few different occasions before finally finding that specialness in a little Maltese baby we called Levi. Her boy is now named Sparky and apparently, he is a tail-chasing little firecracker who lives up to his name. We are glad that he has been a comfort to her and her family and hope they have years and years of happiness together <3


Levi is a precious little guy with dark downturned puppy-dog eyes that guarantee to get him spoiled rotten. He comes from champion lines and has champion blood in his veins. He is very small, we estimate he will grow to about 4.5lbs at a year old making him similar in size to our little boy Maltese Dreamy. If you would like to get an idea of how big he might get, you can also reach out to us to meet Dreamy on video chat and see just how small 4.5lbs really is.

He's still very young so we don't have too many details about his personality just yet but we look forward to learning exactly who he is as he continues to grow up.

We offer live introductions to our pups via facetime or other forms video chat such as Instagram @BestFriendsKennels
