Elijah's fosterer writes...

Elijah is a total sweetheart. He is very, very sociable with people. When there are lots of people around he likes to greet everyone. He is very affectionate. This little guy loves to go for walks and also likes to sun himself outside. When he came into the shelter he was severely matted and very underweight. Now he is gaining weight and growing back his fur since he was shaved down. He is a very easy fellow to live with. He is not very interested in playing with his foster brother, but he co-exists peacefully with him. He loves to be held and cuddled and loved. Elijah is just learning to play with toys and will have fun playing a bit of fetch. Everyone who meets this precious boy thinks he is adorable. He just made his TV debut today!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Adopted! Elijah, a Bowie Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise for sale in Bowie, or seeking a Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise dog from a breeder in Bowie.

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