Matilda is an approximately 5 year old maltese who was rescued from a high kill shelter in Palmdale. She was found as a stray on the streets and it wasn’t in the best shape. It seemed as though Matilda hadn’t been treated for a long time because when she arrived at the shelter, she had lost about 90% of her hair. after BFP rescued her from the shelter, she was given all the vet care possibly to get her back on track. Matilda was diagnosed with Cushings disease which is essentially a hormonal imbalance. She is currently receiving all the veterinary care possibly to help treat it!

When we received Matilda, she was shy and timid but was extremely sweet! She was so grateful to be out of the shelter. Matilda gets along with cats, dogs, and loves people! Matilda would make a great addition to a family with or without pets. She mostly loves lounging around and loves to go on casual strolls during the day!
