Bonnie's Story...
WAG welcomes Bonnie to our rescue! Bonnie is a sweet and tiny Maltese. Bonnie was surrendered to a shelter for unknown reasons, with very little information. We are unsure of her age, however, she is estimated to be between 3 and 6 years old. Bonnie had some severe dental disease and had to have 9 teeth pulled. She proudly shows off her snaggle tooth! She is spayed and up to date on shots and tested negative for heartworm disease. Bonnie needs some work on potty training, as she's about 50/50 right now. Bonnie needs some direction and dedication by someone to overcome this issue/ She is currently in a foster home and does well socializing with other dogs. She weighs about 6 lbs. she is very shy and quiet and keeps to herself. Bonnie is a bit confused and seems sad with the transition, but is doing well She is currently on heartworm prevention meds and has been micro chipped. This sweet girl loves attention and deserves a home to call her own.

Please show Bonnie what a "forever" home is and welcome this sweet girl into your life.

Our adoption fee is $250.00 (cash or credit card).

This sweetheart will be at the Livonia PetSmart on Saturdays from 11-3 starting in August.. Come up and meet this cutie. The Livonia PetSmart is located at South East corner Middlebelt and I-96 at 13150 Middlebelt Rd Livonia, MI 48150. It is located in the back of the Meijer and Costco Parking lot. Our pets are in the back right hand side of the store past the grooming and vet clinic. WAG also has adoption events at Woodhaven Petsmart at 23470 Allen Rd every other Friday 4:30 to 7:00 pm. We ask that you DO NOT contact PetSmart about our animals. They are kind enough to provide space for our adoption events, but are not involved with our rescue work.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Livonia 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 Livonia 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 Livonia paves the way for another one to be saved.
