Meet PORTER! Porter is a 14 lb, super fun, 1-1/2 year old puppy! He is playful with exuberant energy and is a hilarious little wiggle worm. Porter is a happy little guy who is super friendly and very outgoing. He has places to go and people to meet! You will know everyone in your neighborhood with Porter because this social butterfly likes to say HI to passersby. He is good with other dogs and is currently living with two other canine companions. Sweet Porter came in as a stray when we found him at Animal Control. There he was, this matted mess smiling and wagging his tail at the door of his cage. We fell for him instantly! Even though this poor pup had to be completely shaved down, he is still as cute as can be. Training is mandatory for all LLR adoptables, and Porter will be starting our internal classes shortly. Porter would love to find his Forever Family soon. We guarantee that he will wiggle his way right into your heart the moment you meet him!

NOTE: We do NOT adopt out of state. Our range is no further than 75 miles from Chicago. This is because we PERSONALLY do home visits for every single dog / puppy. Exceptions ONLY in certain cases where a sweetie has special issues (medical / behavioral / special needs) or we have had him / her for a longer time. We will then travel to the Moon for a Forever Family!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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