Sabastian (FL)'s Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with dogs.

Sabastian (FL)'s Story...

NOTE: SCMR DOES NOT adopt to homes with children under the age of 10 years or homes with Electric Fences.

Sabastian is a real trooper!
He was picked up and taken to a shelter, and as scary as that is, he is very friendly and playful.
He is about 10 years old and what his life must have been like before, we will never know. What we do know is that he will now be loved and well cared for.

You see, Sabastian is blind, having to have one eye removed, but he is doing very well and will be up and about soon.  His remaining eye will need medicine for dry eye, but that is inexpensive.

We're not sure, but it does appear that Sabastian is deaf as well, so this little fella will need a very special forever home. If you think that is you, please fill out an application.

Sabastian will be recovering in Gainesville, FL until he is ready to be adopted.
Please help SCMR to help him and others by donating to their care. No amount is too small, and ALL is so much appreciated.

Adoption Donation: TBD

Out-of-state adoptions are possible; however, the approved adoptive home is responsible for making the necessary arrangements to pick up their new little one.
To be considered to adopt me, please fill out an APPLICATION.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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