Joker is a male Shih Tzu/Maltese puppy only 7 months old. He is a tiny bundle of joy, weighing in at only 7 pounds. His adult size will be small, probably only 10 pounds or so. Joker has a soft, fluffy gray and white spotted coat that is non-shedding. His wavy, white plume of a tail curls up right over his back. Joker is compact, adorable, and very cuddly. He is wonderful to hold and enjoys being close to his people. Joker is an outgoing, confident, happy go lucky young pup. He meets and greets everyone with ease and has a merry, fun loving personality. Joker loves to play with other dogs his size and is a big fan of romping around large grassy areas, parks, kids games - you can take him anywhere. Joker is great with children, gentle and submissive when being handled. He is not short on attitude and will strut his stuff wherever he goes. Joker walks easily on leash and is good with his potty training. He is a healthy boy, quiet, and an easy keeper. He loves life and it shows. He is a true delight to have around. Joker was brought in stray to a very high-volume/high-kill shelter where we rescued him. He is going to make an outstanding pet and companion. Joker is looking for his new forever home today!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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