Gabby Barkley's Story...
Gabby is a five year old,7lbs maltese/poodle mix. She loves to play with toys and with other dogs. She is very curious and likes to investigate the house and the yard. She likes to be held and to snuggle with her person. She takes a little bit to warm up to you but once you get to know her she adores you and wants to shower you with kisses.

Gabby does very well in the home with people she knows and even when going into public situations Gabby will need to have continued socialization and training to help her conquer her fears. She has come a long way and will let some strangers touch her after she has been around them for a little while. She is very food motivated and will take treats from anyone. She loves to ride in her carrier and go to petsmart. She loves car rides and looking out the window. Gabby can turn anything into a game and thinks everything is her toy. She's crate trained and is working on being potty trained. She is an alarm Barker but loud noises scare her. She needs someone who is patient who will love her forever without kids under 16. Gabby needs an owner who will love her for the wonderful, happy girl that she is but will also help her overcome her fears. Are you nurturing and patient? Will you commit to loving this little girl even though she may bite when shes scared? Gabby is waiting for her forever home and once she finds it, she will be your princess forever. You can also contact her foster mom at for more information.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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