Spanky's Story...
This is Spanky, a 4 yr old, 9 pound Maltese.
Spanky is a sweet and loving dog. He socializes perfectly with other dogs,he is medium energy level.
He absolutely LOVES daily walks, therefore he must go to a committed owner who will take him out on walks everyday. We can say that walks is Spanky's favorite activity. He also loves car rides.
He is housetrained; barks when he wants to go out potty. He is in a feeding and walking schedule, so he needs to go to a home where he will have a routine.
Spanky would be the perfect companion for someone who is retired or a professional that works from home. A home where he will be left alone for many hours (regular work hours) will not work for him.
He enjoys going out to the yard with his foster; he is not food aggressive or jealous of other dogs. He ignores dogs that bark at him during his walks.
Sleeps in a doggy bed right next to his foster's bed, and let's his foster know that he needs to go out potty as soon as she wakes up. Smart boy!
He absolutely DISLIKES to be crated or confined into a room; he will not tolerate that and will bark constantly if he is left confined. Spanky can have free roam of the house as he is not destructive, therefore his foster leaves him in the home with the other dogs while she runs errands. Spanky can be trusted to be alone in the house as he is a well behaved doggy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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