Walter's Story...
Meet Walter !!

Boy is this little guy cute and sweet. He is just beautiful the way his coat blows in the wind.
Gorgeous light hazel/green eyes and a liver colored nose.
Winston is about 24 months old. He is part Maltese and Poodle (Maltipoo) He is very dog and people social and does well with cats too. He might be one of the sweetest calmest dogs to ever enter the program.
He can be in a home with children and other dogs no problem. But we prefer the children not to be toddlers. He is not a biter. But small children can be rough with smaller dogs.
He is great on a leash, loves walks and to run and play. He fosters with some larger 100 pound Shepherds and has no issues with big dogs.
Winston is neutered, microchipped, up to date on all vaccines, has his current rabies and license.
Winston weighs 12.5 lbs now. We believe a healthier weight for him would be about 15 to 16 lbs.

All dogs in our program are up to date on all their shots, dewormed, licensed, spayed or neutered, and micro chipped. Also included is a free health check by our licensed veterinarian. The dogs that come out of our program are very well socialized when they leave, both with people, and other dogs. It is up to the new owners to maintain this. All of our dogs, young and old are crate trained. This gives the new owner a head start for house breaking, and to curb any separation anxiety and or destructive behavior. Most of our dogs are in foster homes and we are able to tell you lots about each of their personalities. We do not place dogs on a first come first serve basis, but rather to the home best suited for them. An adoption fee, application, and contract are required. Please direct all questions to All our dogs can be seen 7 days a week by appointment ONLY. We are located in Van Nuys 91405.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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