Mel's Info...

I am housetrained, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.

Mel's Story...
I am 'Mel's foster mom.....
Mel is a SUPER sweet little guy,,,,,he may be missing a leg...but that doesn't take away from him being a love bug!
Let me try to answer your concerns:
Mel can not go up or down stairs...not even a small step...but he is very light to carry.
Wee wee pads... I put them down but he has never gone in the house or in his crate ...I take him out often...even when it rained I took him out and he did his business.
Outside?... He doesn't seem to mind it on a sunny warm day...shakes a lot if it's cold..but he will do what he has to then..I bring him in. Mel gets nervous to be left in the yard alone...he can not hear so he looks frantically for his 'human'...in the house he will follow you all over (mostly when he has more energy in mornings).. He likes his afternoon naps
Mel,,,, NEVER EVER barks...not a peep from him...
Mel is a sweet sweet dog... If you are interested in coming to meet Mel ..I think you would love him...I don't know what your schedule is like...let crate escape know ...
Any other questions please don't hesitate to ask...
Mel does have a doggie wheel chair which he is just learning to use...

Thank you for considering to adopt a rescue!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mel, a Wappingers Maltese/Bichon Frise dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maltese/Bichon Frise for sale in Wappingers, or seeking a Maltese/Bichon Frise dog from a breeder in Wappingers.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Wappingers already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Wappingers breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Maltese/Bichon Frise breeders who help with Maltese/Bichon Frise rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Wappingers paves the way for another one to be saved.
