Higgins's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Higgins's Story...
Higgins was a stray that was surrendered by a citizen who had rescued him from a highway. He was in real need of grooming. This person kept him for a week, but could not keep him longer. Higgins is a wonderful, loving dog. He weighs 10-12 lbs., is male, neutered, and up-to-date on shots. He is heartworm negative. He jumps into any human lap that presents itself. He gets along with other dogs. (Chased a cat in his foster home.) He may or may not be housebroken. He does not have free access to his entire foster home in the daytime. At night he stays in a wire cage which he does not soil. If not fully housebroken, he is well on the way.

For his $100 adoption fee, Higgins is ready to be adopted to the right home. For more information about Higgins or to make arrangements to meet him, call his foster home at (828) 293-5629. He will also be at ARF pet adoptions on Saturday from 1-3 at 50 Railroad Avenue in Sylva, NC. If you want to meet him there, call his foster home first to make sure that he will be there.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Sylva 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 Sylva 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 Papillon/Maltese breeders who help with Papillon/Maltese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Sylva paves the way for another one to be saved.
