Poodle's Story...
This adorable little lady is Poodle, an 8 year old maltese that is hoping for a fresh start in life. Poodle was turned in to us when she lost her home due to a divorce in her family. She also had a problem where she was getting picked on terribly by a big neighbor dog, so Poodle will need a home with no large dogs. She doesn't seem to mind dogs her own size. This petite girl is very shy and confused as to why she has been uprooted from her home, but once she gets to know you for a minute or two, she is happy to have you hold her and tell her everything will be alright. She is very sweet, quiet and gentle, and bonds quickly with people. Poodle is also very well behaved. She walks nicely on a leash and will sit politely when asked. She is very comfortable and loving with adults, but may have had an incident where a child frightened her, so Poodle will need a home with no children. This sweet little lady is anxiously awaiting her special someone to come in and swoop her off to a loving, forever home. File#24753 5/22/15

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Forked River 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 Forked River 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 Forked River paves the way for another one to be saved.
