Tommy's Story...

Here are our pristine white boys Timmy & Tommy. They are 7 year old Maltese fraternal gentlemen, brothers that MUST stay together. These boys LOVE to cuddle with their humans and are as sweet as the cotton candy they resemble. Now, dont let the age of 7 fool you. These boys love to play with other dogs and people. They are active boys that love to chase, romp, smile, laugh, and enjoy the sunshine! 

Their parents were sent to a nursing home and had to give them up. Luckily, they went immediately into a loving foster home.

Both boys are healthy, vaccinated, fixed, and ready for their new lives! Sadly, Tommy had cataracts in both eyes. After his left eye's cataract detached, his left eye had to be removed. HOWEVER, Timmy helps Tommy. Once Tommy gets his bearings in a new place, he does very well and is independent. So they can go out when need be, they do need a place with a dog door or easy potty access. An apartment, small children, or cat siblings would be not be ideal for them.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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