Rambo's Info...

Rambo's Story...
Meet Rambo! He might be a small dog, weighing in at 15 pounds, but he has a big personality. From his looks he might be a Morkie (yorkie-maltese) mix; he is NOT hypoallergenic. He is 7 or 8 years old, and has been with one family most of his life. Rambo came to us when his family moved into a retirement home that doesn't allow dogs. Although we can tell he misses them, he settled in with his new foster mom after a couple weeks. She tells us "Rambo is no trouble at this point, not demanding at all; he has just started to dash about a bit, and played fetch for the first time this morning. He is quite independent, and prefers to be on his bed and resting pads rather than on a lap. He likes one walk around the block a day, and nosing around the yard. Otherwise he's on his bed or looking out the window if I lift him to the windowsill."

Rambo was recently diagnosed and treated for an infection. This is what caused him to urinate so frequently, making wee pads necessary during the day and a crate necessary at night. Now that he is recovered, he is fine for up to 6 hours alone in the whole house without any mess, and has made it as long as 12 hours overnight! He now sleeps on his doggy bed, the same pillow he has used for years.

If you are looking for a pint-sized, easy going, low maintenance companion, don't overlook Rambo. He has lots of life to live, and lots of love to give.

Rambo's adoption fee of $225 includes: vet exam, distemper combo vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, microchip, deworming, flea and tick prevention, heart worm test, heart worm preventative and neuter.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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