DEACON MAXWELL IS A STUNNING 1-2 YEAR OLD Maltese Shih Tzu mix from Orange County Shelter. Deacon is a loveable goofball who will do well in any family situation! Deacon loves to run and play & is a very sweet sweet boy. You will likely have another dog for Deacon to bond with and have an adult home all day in his new home so he can bond & feel a part of a family. Deacon is fully Vetted as are all Fluffs & Scruffs Dogs. Our BASIC Vetting protocol is spay/neuter, all shots including Distemper, Parvo, Bordatella, Corona, Lepto & Rabies, Heartworm Negative, Fecal to Laboratory, Dental, DeWormed & Microchipped. We are able to offer one month of free medical insurance through Petfinder & a free rescue exam with one of our Veterinarians or someone local to you. You need to do nothing for a year with our dogs as we have done it all. Our dogs are located in Palm Desert & you can contact us about coming for a visit! Our tax deductible adoption donation for puppies is $600.00. Due to our high vetting protocol & entire adoption package ~ our Dogs do not last long so if you are interested ~ Email for a very prompt response and/or call 310 980 3383 for an appointment.

About Fluffs & Scruffs, A Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Our Founder, Director & President, Lisa M. Corona, started Fluffs & Scruffs in 2013 after rescuing a 6 month old, 7 pound sexually abused SoCal Shelter Dog. Lisa kept her & her name is Franchesca Valentina.

Since then, Fluffs & Scruffs have rescued & re-homed over 150 SoCal Shelter & Owner Surrender Dogs. We pull Dogs on their available date which means the last day of their lives! Sometimes with only minutes to spare!! Fluffs & Scruffs, A Dog Rescue is a 501 c3 Charity Organization.

In addition to our wonderful assortment of amazing Fluffs & Scruffs, we pull a lot of Dog's with Medical issues minutes before they are being euthanized for injuries or sickness. We greatfully except donations for these Medical Dogs via Paypal:

This has become Lisa's life Mission. If you are interested in volunteering for Fluffs & Scruffs in ANY capacity - we would love to hear from you!

Thank you for taking the time to read this! Our hope is that you will Adopt from us & not SHOP!

Our Adoption Process...

We are very transparent about our Rescue Dogs to ensure a purrfect fit for you & your family so please also be transparent about your situation during our application process.

Fluffs & Scruffs require both an Adoption Application & Contract to be completed & signed & references both Veterinary & Personal where applicable. If you have not had a Dog before, we will help you find a reputable Vet in your area.

Adoption Fee's vary per dog but start @ $450.00 for our FULLY VETTED Adult Dogs. We require a Home Check to set you & our Dog up for a successful transition into his/her furever home. This is only about the safety of the dog & in no way a judgement of you or your home. Our contract states that should you not want our Dog for ANY reason we will happily take our Dog back into our Rescue ~ please consider we do not want our Dogs to EVER be in a Shelter or unsafe situation again.

ALL our Dogs have the same Vetting Protocol: Rabies, Bordatella, DA2PPV, Heartworm Tested Negative, Fecal to Laboratory, Dewormed & Microchipped.

Where needed we do Teeth Cleaning under Anesthesia, Dew Claw Removal, Bloodwork etc. ~ No expense is spared with our Dogs. Our Dogs are on Frontline Plus & Heartguard Preventatives. We recently have successfully treated 3 dogs for Parvo Virus & would appreciate any donations you can make to us!

Our goal is you not seeing a vet for a year & for our Dog, a clean bill of health for a fresh start in life!
