Tennyson is a sweet and friendly guy that loves all people and like-sized dogs. Tennyson has some special needs after he took a tumble down some stairs and developed Addisons disease.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tennyson, a Oak Park Maltese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maltese for sale in Oak Park, or seeking a Maltese dog from a breeder in Oak Park.

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