Cricket's Story...
Cricket is approx 18 months and 20 lb. He was just a stray found wandering around a local park. He was so matted, we had to shave down, but believe he is a poodle/bichon mix. He is a sweet little dog, gets along with all of the other dogs, loves to run and play, likes toys, he has a very nice disposition, he does pretty well on a leash but is not 100% house trained. He needs to get plenty of walks or time in a yard to go to the bathroom, he loves to sniff around the yard. He is very smart and is learning very quickly on his house training. He is a super little dog!! He tested positive for heart worms and has been treated with the required series of injections, and he has also been started on monthly heart guard as a preventative.

The total adoption cost of $475 includes the required interstate health certificate and transport , spay/neuter, shots including rabies, bordatella, parvo, lepto, distemper and canine influenza, and micro chip with a lifetime pre paid registration . The total amount is payable to Shaggy Dog Rescue which is a 501c3. All our dogs are in foster care, there is no physical shelter. Some have not yet arrived in PA.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cricket, a Allentown Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise for sale in Allentown, or seeking a Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise dog from a breeder in Allentown.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Allentown 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 Allentown 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 Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise breeders who help with Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Allentown paves the way for another one to be saved.
