Rocket's Story...
Rocket (formerly known as Fatty McGee) isn't a fatty anymore!!! Rocket was adopted from HCW back in January by a wonderful woman who loved him very much and walked him 3 miles a day until she got him down to a healthy weight. They have been best friends, unfortunately Rocket has been returned to us due to her living situation not being a good fit for him. This was a very difficult decision for her but in the end, the best choice for Rocket. This adorable little guy is 4 years old and an absolute love bug. Rocket grew up as an only dog with an elderly couple, and was not properly socialized with other dogs. Because of this, he will sometimes bark and charge at other dogs when meeting them and needs a confident owner to correct him. He does correct very easily, and has been to doggy daycare as well as living with multiple other dogs of all shapes and sizes in his foster home. He gets along fine with other dogs, just doesn't really care much about interacting with them. He would be perfectly happy as an only dog, but we think would adjust fine to living with another dog. He tends to be a bit of a foodie, and would benefit from a home that will give him plenty of exercise and follow his strict diet to keep him healthy. He is fine with cats and we are told great with kids. This little fella has been through a lot of changes over the last year, and we want to make sure his next home will be his FOREVER home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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