Lucky Penny's Story...
Need a Lucky Penny? Here she is!

Penny is a diamond in the rough. This delightful little girl is going to be gorgeous when her hair grows back. As it grows in it is soft and beautifully thick; with the brown markings, she's unique. She was turned in at the shelter as a stray in horrible condition. They had to shave her to the skin to free her from the terrible mats and dried manure. She has the most beautiful coat, and the brown areas make her unique.

Penny weighs 8 1/2 lbs, and is estimated to be around 4 years old. She has been spayed, had a dental, and is up to date on vaccinations. She gets better every day with the house training.

Her personality belies her awful experiences. She is the happiest, most playful, little girl you would ever want to meet! Her tail never stops wagging. She gets along with other friendly dogs, and plays with the ones her own size. She LOVES to snuggle on your lap, and follows you around. She is content to lay in a dog bed by your side. She doesn't like cats very much. She is past the age of getting into trouble, but she is still young and energetic (but not wild or crazy).

If you want to add this bouncy little cuddler to your family, you can submit an Adoption Application at www.AmericanMalteseRescue.org.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lucky Penny, a Cotati Maltese/Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maltese/Shih Tzu for sale in Cotati, or seeking a Maltese/Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Cotati.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cotati 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 Cotati 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/Shih Tzu breeders who help with Maltese/Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cotati paves the way for another one to be saved.
