Update, 15 May 2013:
Some wonderful news...Maxie's foster family have decided that Maxie belongs with them & there is no way they can give her up...so Maxie will live the rest of her life surrounded by a family that adores her, as every dog should. Congratulations sweet little girl! I am so happy for you! Thank you to her wonderful "foster failures" for giving this girl her forever home. :)

Update, 6 May 2013:
Maxie continues to thrive in her loving foster home. She is completely UTD on vaccinations and she will be spayed in the near future. Her foster mom says this:

I love that silly little dog. She makes us laugh every day and is really developing a spunky/sweet personality. She can fetch like a champ now and enjoys shaking her rubber chicken with vigor!

Contact me if you would like to adopt this adorable ball of fluff!

Wow, I just got the most wonderful update from Maxie's foster family. Take a look at this!

Maxie has consistently proven to be a superstar. Name any quality you can think of that makes a dog GREAT and she has it.

She is super chill and entertains herself while we are at work, never getting into trouble or leaving a mess.

Maxie is very very quiet, days pass without one bark. Every once in a while, she will give a one bark hello to a passing dog but that is it. She doesn't even bark at the stray cats in the alley.

So far, Maxie is great with kids- very gentle and happy to see them.

She loves people in general and when company visits, Maxie likes to simply sit back and watch the people circus, never ever being obnoxious.

She is completely housebroken and can be alone for several hours without incident.

She curls up at night and puts herself to bed, with no demanding midnight walks requested. She likes to sleep next to your bed but never on it.

In general, she prefers the floor to furniture. She will sit on your lap for forever but when you leave the couch, she has no interest staying there on her own.

We can take her anywhere- cabs, trains, even restaurants and no one even knows she is there.

Maxie likes to go for a walk on the leash but doesn't demand it. She is super tiny (8 pounds) so when she has enough walking, she will politely ask to be picked up.

She is a snuggle bunny when the mood strikes and loves to be petted and groomed. Bathing her is easy and she even likes being brushed and blow dried.

The vet said she is healthy but has a bit of weakness in her back knees. Somewhere along the line, someone trained her do do a little two legged dance for treats. So adorable but not the best move for healthy joints. The vet said as long as we don't encourage such displays, however cute, she should be fine. She is up to date on her vaccinations as well.

She is super smart and picks up cues easily. Very easy to train.

Everyone loves her unique look. It is nearly impossible to go anywhere with her without random strangers stopping to comment on her. Even dog-shy folks smile when they see her coming. She is unbelievable cute in person, enough so that ladies will stop us on the street and fuss over her, yet Maxie is spunky enough that men think she is one cool dog and want to pet and play with her.

Basically, this is the easiest foster in the history of fostering. Maxie is going to make some lucky person supremely happy.

Update, 4 April 2013:
Maxie's foster family has only good things to say about her!

She had no accidents in the apt for the last 24 hours - yippee!
Gave her a conditioning bath and she loved it, even let me blow dry her and fluff up her fur with a doggie brush. She acted like the Queen of Sheba the entire time.
Giving her freer range of the apt. so far, she has stuck to only her bones and toys to chew on and has not destroyed anything.
Gently working on training. Encountering typical Terrier stubbornness but she is very bright. Next week, once she is more settled, we will try training with food (she is VERY food motivated).
So far, this foster is going super :)

Update, 31 March 2013:
This lucky little cutie-pie went into foster care with a lovely family yesterday! So far the transition from shelter to foster home has gone extremely well.

We did the vet check and she got a clean bill of health complete with a booster shot (shot 2 of a 3 part series, she didn't need the first round), a rabies shot, and a heart worm test (negative). She does have some weakness in her back knees the doctor noted. He said no more dancing or jumping and she should be OK. I'm keeping an eye on it because he said she should not be allowed on furniture.
I started a vet record and will return in 2 weeks for shot #3.

Today we also learned that despite her silent nature, she can indeed bark! Once at a dog in the vets office :)

We also learned that she is completely chill in restaurants. The Hungry Dog in HBC let us have brunch inside with her and she was a perfect lady. No one even noticed her. She just snuggled on our laps and let us eat in peace. Same on the cab ride home. She entertained 2 sets of very small children as well (don't worry I was hovering over-cautiously) she loves them and was supremely sweet.

She is just the best dog!

Thank you Meagan, Isabell and "husband" ;) for fostering this sweet little thing.

How does one even begin to describe the adorableness of this dog? Holy COW!! You have to see it to believe it. The photos show only a little of the cuteness and the funky hairstyle this girl sports, but what you can't see is the tiny frame, which stands on it's tiny hind legs while pawing at the air to get your attention. Maxie is a little dancer. She will steal your heart. (I know she already has mine!)

She was rescued recently by Mr Park from a city pound. She simply ADORES being around people and loved every single moment of being loved and patted by the kids who volunteered with us last weekend.

If you would like to meet this dainty girl, please come on a trip with us to Asan shelter!
