Arrival Story: Malaia was a rescue from a puppy mill. She was adopted from a chihuahua rescue in Missouri. When I first got Malaia, she was terrified, I sat her on my bed and she did not move for two days. I named her Malaia because it is Hawaiian for "Freedom" She is the light of my life and I love her more than anything. She goes with me just about everywhere and has flown in an airplane around 6 times. She does well with other dogs and people, and she is my perfect little watchdog.
