Carmella's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Carmella's Story...
This adorable poodle/bichon mix was found foraging for food in a not so nice part of the city. After we had her groomed, she looked like a whole new dog. She is approx 3-4 years old and 18lbs. She has a really sweet disposition, very loving, quiet and well behaved, likes to sleep at your feet. She does well on a leash, seems to be pretty well house trained but not perfect. When her coat grows back, she is going to be stunning. She is a very happy little girl and always smiling. She was treated for heartworm and is now on a monthly preventative. She has cataracts in both eyes and we took her to the an eye specialist who said that she has cataracts, but is not a candidate for surgery. She has very good vision in her left eye, and the right eye still has some vision, but not as good as the left eye. She seems to see really well and it does not impeded her ability to get around or run and play with her buddies.

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

Carmella, a Allentown Bichon Frise/Poodle (Miniature) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Bichon Frise/Poodle (Miniature) for sale in Allentown, or seeking a Bichon Frise/Poodle (Miniature) 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 Bichon Frise/Poodle (Miniature) breeders who help with Bichon Frise/Poodle (Miniature) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Allentown paves the way for another one to be saved.
