Cotton (in Virginia)'s Story...
Cotton...

... was seized by a local animal shelter after being notified by a good Samaritan that this very sweet, but frightened, dog had been abandoned in a vacated hole in the wall, deplorable to the extent of being uninhabitable, "apartment". Cotton had clearly been grossly neglected. When seized he was emaciated, nails curled into his pads, lacking decent care he was badly in need of a good trim and a dental. He has now had all of his needs provided and is ready for his forever family to discover him and take him into their heart and home. Despite his difficult past, his temperament shines. He is a happy go lucky, affectionate little boy of about 5 pounds. He is approximately 9 years old via veterinarian educated guess. His dental resulted in the loss of all of his remaining teeth. This has not seemed to slow him down at all. At times his tongue protrudes, but not always. Either way, he is such an endearing little gentleman. He gets along well with other small dogs who are kind to him, just as he is to them. Due to his mild temperament, cats would probably be okay too. Older gentle children over 12 years old, would be okay. He travels very well, he walks on a leash nicely. He is housetrained - although while transitioning to a new home and a new routine, he may have a couple oops! inside. His new coat growth is plush and soft. He needs a family who can be with him much of the time. He has had enough of being deserted. He is the ultimate little dog companion. Please complete an adoption application if Cotton seems like your ideal Papillon companion.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cotton (in Virginia), a Nationwide Papillon dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Papillon for sale in Nationwide, or seeking a Papillon dog from a breeder in Nationwide.

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