Phoebe's Story...
Little Lady Phoebe here! I’m a 5 year old, 5 pound Maltese and I loooove everyone, including kids. The shelter environment has been a little overwhelming for a gal like me, so I can be a little sensitive when meeting new people for the first time. But once I’m in a home I really shine! I’m all cuddles and wiggles and fun. Plus, just take a look at my picture—have you ever seen a cuter pup?
I come spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. Adoption fee $250. Fill out an application to schedule a meet and greet!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Phoebe, a Portland Maltese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maltese for sale in Portland, or seeking a Maltese dog from a breeder in Portland.

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