Maxwell's Story...
This charming tail-wagger is Maxwell. Maxwell looks a little goofy right now because this poor little fellow arrived a complete mess. He was filthy and his hair was matted to the skin, his eyes were covered so he couldn't see. But under all that mess we found a sweet little dog. Animal Control did their best to shave him down, and as soon as he grows out just a bit a trip to the groomer will be in order. Right now his skin is still a bit tender.

We estimate Maxwell to be at least 5 years old. We don't know for sure what his breed is, but believe he might be a poodle or schnauzer mix. Though at first he was a little freaked out with his recent ordeal at animal control, once he settled in, he's really a very friendly dog,

His new foster parents say: He will make a great family pet. He is actually a very happy dog. He greets people tail wagging and has a cute "dog smile". He loves to go outside and seems happy walking in the grass and exploring. He is extremely friendly to everyone, men, women, children. Though he's a small dog at only 14 lbs, he's got a big personality. He loves to be where people are and in the middle of any family social situation. Max will jump on your lap and expects to be cuddled. He is a big kisser, loves to be petted and will nuzzle, expecting to be petted. He likes to jump onto the bed and roll himself in blankets. He is an active dog and is on the move, but not overly so. He is smart and knows a few commands. He barks when he wants to go into the house. He LOVES car rides and will stand on his hind legs looking out the front passenger seat or stand on the driver's lap with front paws on the wheel as though he is driving. He is a big moocher, I think in his previous life he was fed table scraps over dog food - he'll eat anything! After getting used to his new routine, Max seems housebroken, and the stability of a new home should keep him on the right track.

Max would be great in a home that has only one dog. Though he gets along in general with other dogs, Max, a small dog, tends to want to dominate others. He is fine with cats.

Maxwell's adoption fee of $290 includes: vet exam, heartworm test, DAPP (distemper combo) vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, microchip, deworming, flea and tick prevention, heartworm preventative, and neuter.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Maxwell, a Mt. Prospect Poodle (Miniature) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Miniature) for sale in Mt. Prospect, or seeking a Poodle (Miniature) dog from a breeder in Mt. Prospect.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Mt. Prospect 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 Mt. Prospect 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 Poodle (Miniature) breeders who help with Poodle (Miniature) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Mt. Prospect paves the way for another one to be saved.
