Shipley's Story...
This happy little dog is approx 7 yrs and 18 lbs, he looks like a maltese/terrier mix, he was adopted out approx 5 yrs ago to a single older lady and she recently was placed in a nursing home so he came back to our rescue by way of the spca where her children dumped him… he is a really sweet dog but can be a little scared of strangers and especially men, so his ideal home is again with a single female, he will sit on your lap all day long if you let him and is very well behaved, he gets along with the other rescues but can be a little pushy with some of them, he seems to have been rather spoiled as an only dog, he is house trained and loves to go on walks and ride in the car, overall he is a great dog with the right owner..

If you live in MA, there are new requirements for rescue dogs - according to the State Law, all rescues have to be quarantined for 48 hrs at the Ven Elger Kennels in Westport, MA. There is additional cost for this quarantine and new required health cert by a licensed MA vet of $110. We will go over all fees with you via email.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shipley, a Woonsocket Maltese/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maltese/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) for sale in Woonsocket, or seeking a Maltese/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog from a breeder in Woonsocket.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Woonsocket 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 Woonsocket 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/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) breeders who help with Maltese/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Woonsocket paves the way for another one to be saved.
