Elton's Story...
I was born in 2009 and I am a Maltese mix. I'm a playful sir that just loves to do the Crocodile Rock, but I'm happy as long as I can have a cozy lap to watch the sun go down on me from. My rock-star haircut fits my spunky personality, but you won't mistake me for a honky cat, my tail wags fast enough to take a rocket man to the moon. Come meet me and before you know it we'll be out of here faster than a candle in the wind.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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